Especially since I'm only on page 750 thanks to my settings.
So, the script for Spring Breakers definitely exists and it's 79 pages. I don't know / care whether the words "fever dream" are included.
I remember the days when water was free and porn cost money.
The story of Mine That Bird's Kentucky Derby win in 09 is being made into a movie. March release. I still have no clue how that horse won that race based on his efforts going into the race. He was 50-1 but shoulda been 200-1. His best race was actually in a close loss in the Preakness next out. Good publicity for the sport. This isn't some miracle horse or a heart-warming family connection. These were some New Mexico-based horse trainers that somehow got a really good 2 year old from Canada and got into the Derby when a bunch of other horses dropped out lol.
The trainer of Mine that Bird was arrested a couple of years ago pissing on a slot machine at a casino in Iowa lol.
Also... for better or worse does it seem like Matthew McConaughey turned down a role in this lol?
I mean, I understand why people write about the Oscar horse race and drive traffic around it, but it's the least helpful way to think about movies, and it's all the more aggravating because no one remembers any of it six months to a year later.
Those with Netflix, watch Klown.
Fun surprise at the end.
I don't care who wins the oscar. What I do care about is how wonderful of a year it's been for film. Is there a picture that stands out above the rest right now for me? I'm not so sure. What I do know is that my top five or ten could possibly be better than any film that's won best picture over the last several years. I still need to catch up on many films but 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle, Inside Lllewyn Davis, The Wind Rises, The Act of Killing, The Grandmaster, Mud, Before Midnight and Journey to the West are all great IMO. Looking forward to catching Nebraska, Her and Wolf of Wall Street, as well as several I missed in theaters.
tall Guy, I have yet to see Drug War. Missed it in theaters, but saw it was on Netflix so I will be watching that the second I have some time. Heard nothing but great things about it, however I've never been the biggest Johnnie To supporter. For some reason I've avoided his films more often than not. Can't pinpoint exactly why, but his recent output has been pretty good so I should catch up.
Also, here's a good question: Name a best picture winner from the last ten years that was ACTUALLY memorable beyond just being the answer to a triva question. I am willing to bet that you will find less than five.

Finally saw Frances Ha last night and fell in love with the lead actress. I hope she and Noah work together again.
Also, page 1000!
This his second movie with Greta Gerwig. She was great in Greenberg too
Official U.S. release!
Just saw Silver Linings Playbook and it was pretty damn good. I loved the portrayal of the stigma around mental illness. The girl wasn't too bad on the eyes either. It got a little silly towards the end but I would still recommend to watch it.
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 caught a screening of The Wolf of Wall Street tonight. It is indeed as incredibly hilarious and fun as reviews have said, I'm not sure there's a whole lot to it beyond that though.
whatever, nerd. you're just jealous you ain't fucking
