    For the record, I'd just like to say that Thor was way more enjoyable in Avengers than he was in his own solo movie.

    Got that Bond 50 set for Christmas. Very excited to start watching these again, yet I know that excitement should be tempered by the fact that I'm going to put myself through seeing Moonraker and Die Another Day again. On the flipside, I have the Star Trek Original Movie series on blu, and I still haven't had the heart to watch Star Trek V.

    God help me, watching Take This Waltz on Netflix this weekend caused me to have an orgy dream about Seth Rogen. I couldn't have a dream involving Michelle Williams or the other cute guy, it had to be Seth.

    My gf and I watched two movies on NYE (we're so exciting): Harold & Maude and Conan The Barbarian (yes, the original). Both have excellent soundtracks. Also, outside of voicing the most famous movie villain of all time, James Earl Jones should have played more villains in his career.

A Pixar film about Dia de los Muertos sounds like a wonderful idea as well. Thank god they aren't going forward with that rumoured Toy Story 4. I absolutely loved Toy Story 3, but to make a 4th would have been a shame.

    Saw Contagion this weekend. Great film but the ending left me a bit unsatisfied. Anyone else really dig the soundtrack? Kinda Reznor-ish.

    The soundtrack was one of the best aspects of the film. It created great tension and gave the scenes a good pace. I enjoyed Kate Winslet's character the most, but generally enjoyed the film overall.

    My problems with Looper are identical to my problems with Inception. They're both primarily action movies that drastically over-explain their admittedly clever premises, and take the science out of sci-fi by choosing to engage with their ideas exclusively via simplistic genre tropes (the Bond-derived dream settings in Inception, the time-travel-as-device-for-mob-vengeance-only here) rather than scenarios that require actual imagination or intellectual complexity. They also share an affinity for underdeveloped romances; this was only a minor irritant in Inception, but Looper actively uses the "love story" to destroy its credibility. Not only does it slow the second half of the film to a crawl and demand investment in a depthless relationship, with a stock female who doesn't have a shred of personality besides "feisty and horny" (I like Emily Blunt, but she's got nothing to do here)...and after all that water-treading, the climax completely shuns the few interesting notions the film has raised (for starters, the JGL character's knowledge and injuries transfer repeatedly to the Bruce Willis version; yet somehow his emotional transformation and growing bond with mom and son has no effect on Willis the angry killing machine) so that Rian Johnson can end the movie with Another Christ Sacrifice.

    I enjoyed it as I watched it, but every time I've thought, spoke or written about it afterward has made me hate it. Which is exactly what happened with Inception.
    I have no problem with some movies having sci-fi as their setting; this one was at least fully built around the sci-fi aspects. You thought the love story destroyed the film's credibility because you didn't accept the film to begin with. JGL was changed by what he saw and without that growth the movie was nothing. I'll agree that Emily Blunt's character was a little thin but I think there was more there than you're giving credit for; she had more than that in how she was dealing with her son.

    Also they did discuss JGL's feelings transferring to Willis; how he would eventually forget his wife, etc.; it was the main motivation for him trying to be so quick with the angry killing. Also JGL only truly knew where he stood at the end; if we were being generous we might find a brief pause on Willis' part and attribute it to JGL growing up (I would have to re-watch to see if such a thing is actually there).

    I had the opposite experience. I wasn't entirely on board right off but the more I thought about it the more I liked what it did.

    I thought that reveal was the most amazing part of the film; I really liked the slow building hints. I am not sure what you saw as cheesy, though.

Looper meant he saw the future in that he saw that if Rainmaker's mother was killed by him then Rainmaker would end up running away in the same fashion he had to and thus would be bitter enough to spend the future killing Loopers? 'Cause it made things rather confusing and for a second sounded like he was saying he is the kid, which doesn't make much sense.
    Yeah, the Rainmaker kid was not JGL/Willis though there was a clear parallel.

Plus I kinda dig the idea of murder being so difficult to get away with in the future that you have to send victims back to the past, that actually makes some sense in a weird way. All the shit about "closing the loop" was just bizarre though. Why the fuck do the people who employed these loopers give a flying fuck about killing you thirty years from now exactly?
    Because 30 years from now doing this is illegal and hard to get away with. Would you want a bunch of big talking idiots running around talking about how they made their fortunes? Wanna bet that once the authorities figured out what was going on they started putting up significant rewards for anyone that could talk about the Looper operations? And would you trust your amoral pack of retired killers to not rat you out for another big payday? I don't see it as having been personal or anything, just tying up loose ends.

    I think the least believable thing about that is the idea that they all lived 30 years and all lived through their abductions.

    Seeking a bit of a breather from the 2012 movie tear I was on over the holiday weekend, tonight I watched Godard's Pierrot Le Fou. I really connected with this one much better than some of his others, probably my second favorite of his behind Breathless at this point. I know a reoccurring theme of his tends to be the distance between men and women, and their utter incapability of understanding/eventually accepting the other...it's been a bit more subtle in films like Contempt as in this it was definitely at the forefront. And sometimes I don't do too well with subtle, so I gladly accepted the on-the-nose way that theme was depicted this time around. It did end in a fashion that left me feeling a bit detached, but with Godard I'm used to that by now haha.

    If you want to really love Godard, see Alphaville. I don't really buy DVDs anymore, but if I ever see that film I will pay whatever they're asking. It's so goddamn great.

    Bande a part is my favorite Godard film, and the first that clicked with me. Made me enjoy his other films loads more both going forward and revisiting.

    Bande a Parte is highly entertaining. I like Contempt, Breathless and Masculin/Feminin quite a bit as well, but Alphaville is such a great Sci Fi flick.

    Caught Amour at Laemmle's Royal Theatre last night. Good film, but it won't crack my top 5 of 2012. However, this was my first time seeing a movie at the Royal in over 5 years. When did they renovate this place? This theater was much nicer than I remember and I look forward to seeing more films there.

    Nope, well besides you of course. I stand by what I said and it was entertaining.

    Saw Django yesterday. I liked it a lot. I thought the ending was a tad bit drawn out but other then that no complaints. I think the best part of the movie were the songs he chose to use in certain parts. Like when Freedom was playing during the fight scene had me cracking up. The N bomb was said a lot but I didn't think it was as violent as some people have told me.

    Yeah you guys just mentioned the only two scenes I thought were unnecessary violence, as a whole though I didn't think Django was any worse then Inglorious Bastards or Kill Bill with regards to violence.

    Tarantino was on Terry Gross's show earlier this week, and he said that all the violence in his movie is justifed because all that (Mandingo wrestling, torturing slaves who misbehave, having slaves ripped apart by dogs)actually happened, and he wanted to portray an unflinching record of that. Of course, some of it is just fun violence and devices from the spaghetti western genre.

    And the impact both of those scenes had on Dr. Schultz make them entirely necessary.
