I'm overdue for a second veiwing of Primer
I was actually thinking of Eponine, played by Samantha Barks who sang the role for a year in the West End production as well as the 25th Anniversary Concert performance.
Thinking about 'Life of Pi' in 3D this weekend after seeing Ang Lee's 'Brokeback Mountain' again recently. What a classic that is, although I don't think the Ledger/Jack Twist final meeting was all that realistic (why would he crush his soul and be so cold like that?). And you notice how it's never played on broadcast cable? It's not anywhere. Ashame. "King of the road".
Life of Pi is a nice movie well worth seeing in the theater in 3D.
I'm watching Flying Swords of Dragon Gate on Netflix streaming right now and loving it. Wish I had caught this in 3D. Way more entertaining than Thai Chi Zero.
Rust and Bone was really good. It kind of lost me a bit toward the middle, but the final act was fantastic and it definitely redeemed itself. Excellent, excellent soundtrack as well, bookended by Bon Iver.
I saw Django Unchained last night and it was incredible. Better then Inglorious Bastards, possibly his best.....and I have a hard time saying that because Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are so incredible......definitely a must see.
Jealous of you guys seeing it early...Matt saw it the other night as well.
Make it your christmas gift and go see it the second it comes out!!! Or find someone who is part of a union and tag along with them to an early screening
I like where your head's at. My birthday's actually the day after Christmas, so I'm making it my birthday gift!
That's perfect! Definitely a good birthday gift!!!
Speaking of DGA screenings...
Avengers screening with Joss Whedon Q&A (and others to be confirmed). RSVP gets you a +1. People hold tickets in their cart but it'll let you get one if you refresh a bit (hopefully).
My sister and I are going through the Criterion samurai films. It's been a lot of fun so far (except for when we tried watching the Samurai Trilogy), and we've seen films ranging from an atmoshpheric ghost story to classic, straight-up adventure. One thing is constant, though: being a peasant sucks. Life consists of eating millet and then it's death by starvation, or death by bandits, or death by raiding samurai.
Where can I go to find out about LA screenings so I don't miss them? Is there a blog or RSS feed that posts them?

Tonight I watched and enjoyed Shane Carruth's Primer quite a bit, although I feel it was a bit too convoluted for its own good.
Also while I would agree that there is more content available now and that the average is likely better than before I would also say there is still a lot of shit that isn't worth considering and there's probably just as much great stuff as ever.
A film like the Notebook keeps getting rewatches from people but surely no one learns anything new from it each time, they just enjoy it enough to keep going back.
