    I was surprised by how much I didn't hate Philomena, but come on Dench's performance didn't hold a candle to Cate's.

    That's why I said Cate still deserved it, Dench did an amazing job in it.

    EXACTLY. While most films are either ultra-romanticizing or cute-ifying relationships, or culling them from tough circumstances and selling that as "love", this movie says "hey, this relationship is for real" - and who cares if one of the participants is totally NOT real? It's about the struggle we have to be in love with someone else despite our flaws and expectations AND their flaws and expectations. If you've never had a true love relationship with someone that challenged you, it would certainly seem like claptrap. Or if you're the kind of nitwit who thinks you're never to blame for a relationship's failures. But if you've fought hard for someone you love while fighting against your personal emotional walls and intellectual hangups, you should see some of that mirrored in Her. I loved it, and I wasn't in the "Spike Jonze is a genius so I have to love this" group at all.

    I haven't seen Ravenous in years but I really liked it a lot at the time. It's campy and over the top but without lessening any of the tension or taking away from the excitement and anxiety. It's got fun performances from the majority of the cast, especially Robert Carlyle. I personally think Albarn's score, which he co-wrote with Michael Nyman, is the best thing about the movie, though I know a lot of people found it extremely annoying.

    The Blu-ray should be waiting for me when I get home, so hopefully I'll be able to rewatch it tonight.

    The score was fantastic, and especially fitting during that last 20 minutes. What a completely insane movie.

    Oh my God, i LOVE Ravenous! I saw it popped up on Netflix last week and was trying to tell Heather about it. I saw it in the the theater, and it was especially nuts at the time when Guy Pierce, Robert Carlyle, and David Arquette were all legitimate movie stars. It's such a great crazy movie.

    I had a friend who worked in a movie theater who was learning to attach trailers to film prints. His first go at it resulted in attaching the trailer for Ravenous to the Rugrats Movie.

    That didn't go over so well.

    I know I am late to this discussion and you probably have discussed all of this already, but I have to interject. I can appreciate the uniqueness of the film for it's mise-en-scene, but the storyline and character development felt annoyingly contrived. The relationship was a total objectification of HER. If you guys think that is romantic you must be as sensitive and misdirected as Twombley. (Even his name is irritating)

    James Cameron Explains How He Wrote the 3 'Avatar' Sequels Simultaneously

    Ever since Avatar broke box office records during its theatrical release, fans have been looking forward to a follow-up for this adventure set in the fictional world of Pandora. Instead of one sequel, we're getting three, with Avatar 2 set for release in December 2016, followed by Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 in 2017 and 2018, all of which will be shot simultaneously. Director James Cameron made an appearance at the Hero Complex Film Festival over the weekend, where he explained the "parallel process" of writing all three scripts at the same time, with co-writers Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), the writing team of Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Shane Salerno (Savages) for these highly-anticipated follow-ups. Take a look at what he had to say about this unique writing process, which he compared to a television show's writers room.

    "We tried an experiment. We set ourselves a challenge of writing three films at the same time. And I could certainly write any one of them but to write three in some reasonable amount of time - we wanted to shoot them together so we couldn't start one until all three scripts were done and approved. So I knew I was going to have to "parallel process" which meant I would have to work with other writers. And the best experience I had working with other writers was in television when I did Dark Angel. The television room is a highly collaborative, fun experience.

    So we put together three teams, one for each script. The teams consist of me and another writer on each one of the three [films]. So I'm across all the films and then each one of them would have their own individual script they were responsible for. But what we did that was unique was we sat in the writing room for five months, eight hours a day, and we worked out every beat of the story across all three films so it all connects as one, sort of, three film saga. And I didn't tell them which one was going to be there's individually to write until the last day. So everyone was equally invested, story wise, in all three films.

    So, for example, the guy that got movie three, which is middle one of this new trilogy, he now knows exactly what preceded and what follows out of what he's writing at any given moment. We all consider that to be a really exciting, creative and groundbreaking experiment in screenwriting. I don't know if that necessarily yields great scripts but it certainly worked for us as a process to get our minds around this kind of epic with all these new creatures, environments and characters and all that.

    Cause the first thing I did was sat for a year and wrote 1500 pages of notes of the world and the cultures and the different clans and different animals and different biomes and so on. And had a lot of loose thematic stuff that ran through that but I didn't (have) a concrete story. I wanted to approach it more like, 'Guys we're going to adapt a novel or series of novels.' Because I felt that kind of detail, even if movies can't ever be that detailed - it can be visually detailed, it can't be that detailed in terms of character and culture. But you always get this tip of the iceberg kind of thing. You sense it's there off camera or in the past of the moment that you're seeing. So I felt that was the way to do it."
    Production is scheduled to take place in New Zealand, with shooting set to begin in October.

    Avatar was released December 18th, 2009 and stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel Moore, Giovanni Ribisi, Michelle Rodriguez, Laz Alonso. The film is directed by James Cameron.

    Avatar 2 comes to theaters November 2016 and stars Stephen Lang, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington. The film is directed by James Cameron.
    Avatar 3 comes to theaters November 2017 and stars Stephen Lang, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington. The film is directed by James Cameron.
    Avatar 4 comes to theaters November 2018 and stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang. The film is directed by James Cameron.

    Yeah. This move is fantastic. If I ever ran a theater, the first thing I would do is set up a double billing of this and Pontypool.

    Ravenous is fantastic and incredibly underrated, 1999 really was fucking incredible.

    I watched ...And Everything Is Going Fine and Gray's Anatomy yesterday back to back. Got take out and decided to cleanse the pallet by viewing How High for the 137th time and finally noticed this...

This was probably my favorite summer blockbuster since Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    I saw Edge of Tomorrow in IMAX 3D yesterday. I really liked it. I thought the plot was alright, action scenes well done (I dodged a grenade in my seat lol), the dialog to be believable and Emily Blunt able to hold her own in the action role and looking quite attractive.

    I actually theater hopped for a total of 4 movies yesterday; Edge of Tomorrow, X-Men, The Fault In Our Stars, and A Million Ways to Die In the West.

    X-Men was alright, I wasn't blown away, it was just a solid super hero movie. Also, I kinda like Rebecca Romijn better as Mystique.

    The Fault In Our Stars totally destroyed my theater full of tweens, millennials and their Mothers, sniffles galore. My family went through some serious shit before my sister finally got her kidney transplant and the movie definitely got a lot right. Anyway, my sister plans on getting her cry on to the movie later this week.

    I only saw A Million Ways to Die In The West to cleanse my palate after watching the sad movie. At times, it definitely felt like a live action episode of Family Guy.

    All in all, an enjoyable 9.5 hours spent at the theater.
