    EDIT: I totally forgot he did Fearless, one of my favorite Jeff Bridges films.
    Oh yes, Fearless is fucking amazing.

    I also thought his most recent one, the Way Back, was pretty good despite getting no attention and quietly disappearing.

    Ohhh, yeah I've seen some of Weir's stuff. Didn't know all that was him. The Truman Show is great, I didn't care for Master and Commander, and Dead Poet's Society I had to have watched in at least two different classes back in the day.

    Wreck It Ralph was probably the best kids movie I have seen since Fantastic Mr. Fox, it was funny, smart, well cast, and very original. Not that my opinion means anything in this thread, but I would recommend if you have a child or young relative or even if you don't. The movie totally exceeded my very low expectations and made me have a little bit of hope for future Disney films, although I am still skeptic as this is their only good movie since the 90s besides maybe Meet the Robinsons.

    Hmm. For some reason movie tickets are all $5 at LA Live today on the website, no matter the time.
    It says "Economy" tickets when it redirects you to Fandango. I'm going to check out Skyfall in a couple hours.
    Does anyone know if this is some sort of recurring sale? I can't find any infos.

    So late to the party on this, but we now live in a world where Ben fucking Affleck directed perhaps the best Hollywood film of the year.

    Two small details I loved: the use of the '70s era Warner title cards, and mining Warner's music rights to play "Sultans of Swing" and "Dance the Night Away."

    Bored in a hotel room tonight, I watched Super Fly on Netflix. Classic soundtrack, obviously. Entertaining flick, but definitely style over substance.

    Just watched Death Wish and what a fun film with cameos from young future jazz guys. Bronson's psychosis is admirable, each death he delivers with a cold mother fuckin' stare. I enjoyed it so much I had to get into the second. Bronson is far more physical in the 2nd one, just something to think about if you Netflix marathon it.

    Almost finished with Death Wish 2, and I need to know from any of you old of enough to remember its theatre release: How was it received? I mean, this movie is fucked up. Charles Bronson is the ultimate badass.


    I also watched Southland Tales today, what a fucking a failure on the parts of the casting, the writing, and well..just fucking everything. OK, so maybe with "Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Sean William Scott.." as the two names I saw, I should have not even gone through with it. Then it starts, I'm looking at Magic cards, and then I hear a familiar voice, I can't pin it. Then I look at the screen. Justin Timberlake.

    This movie was over already. I just let the trainwreck keep going. So many cameos of TV actors in a film that had promise in the scenario of the world before it introduced the characters; including the narrator, Timberlake. After looking at Richard Kelly's IMDB I feel like this is another one of his many films that had some great potential, but he rushed it out the door. It's unfortunate how money can just slop up something great.

    **Death Wish 2 LIVE UPDATE
    The writers just threw in PCP use. Action film folks who enjoy senseless violence: Watch this.

    I really hope they decide not to remake Death Wish series. Those first 2 death wishes were fucking fantastic.

    Yes, Death Wish is awesome. The last couple are ridculous mockeries of the first two though.

    And Southland Tales is one of the worst movies ever made. it's such a crazy bundle of WTF all the way through. And none of that has to do with The Rock or Sean William Scott, both of whom I actually like quite a bit. That movie tested my patience quite a bit.

    Should I even bother with watching Southland Tales? I feel I will otherwise, just to see for myself.

    Southland Tales is a mess, but it's an entertaining mess. I found myself laughing at certain scenes towards the end of how ridiculous they were (or maybe it was the dialogue, I can't remember).
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I don't see Southland Tales as a failure. It is very high on my list of favorite films. It is sprawling and ridiculous but I count these as successes.

    And it deals with realities of 21st Century America like few other films.

    Some may be turned off by the slowish pace, the mystical sci-fi elements, the vulgarity ("Cockchuggers 2: Cock Chuggin'") but I find that all great. And I love the music, including Justin Timberlake Lip-Syncs The Killers so, yeah.



    I will note that the original/Cannes cut IS a mess and that I am not sure I would have loved the film as much if that was what I was going by.

    Agreed.

    All of Xanman's photos on the other hand....

    Personally I think if you were to meet/know anyone famous, the last thing you want is a shitty picture with them looking annoyed. I'd rather have a legitimate conversation that doesn't have to revolve around the subject of me praising their work.
