    Seemed cheesy to me. I actually thought it was a spoof at first because I am not familiar with that comic and seemed different from the Marvel characters I was familiar with.

    the only reason people love braveheart and gladiator as much as they do is that they involve a lot of violence justified by insane revenge stories. and i saw braveheart at ye old cine capri (large single screen old school movie house that used to exist here). i admit, i love it. most people love a good revenge story. i also had a large friend dress up for halloween as the guy with the ponytail on his head that says "the english are too many!"

    Guardians was awesome!
    Saw it in Imax 3D, which made it even more special.

    I might even go see it again when I see Ninja Turtles next week.

    Also, the trailer for the new disney animated flick they played before it looks really good

    We take it for granted nowadays because it's become so incredibly common, but yeah that big battle scene in Braveheart was something that a lot of us hadn't seen before. I remember being completely shocked at that part when blood hit the camera lens.

    Ever listen to the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" One of my favorites, especially the one on Howard the Duck. They disect these horrible but great movies pretty much scene by ridiculous scene.

    I really loved it. The action was great, it had a surprising amount of heart to it, and it was actually extremely funny. It doesn't take itself too seriously either, which most comic book inspired flicks do now a days.

    Another aspect I really liked about it was how fast it just dives into the movie. It doesn't linger too long on the beginning, it very clearly introduces the characters and their motivations, and gets on with it.

    It's really, really fun. You should watch it and stuff.
    These were my thoughts as well. I'd kind of forgotten about this section of the Marvel universe. I used to collect the cards when I was a kid and I remember Thanos was always was one of my favorite villains because all of his stats were jacked up as hell. Overall it was a really nice surprise - when I first saw the teaser I would have bet my life the movie was going to be horrible.

    I agree Guardians of the Galaxy was surprisingly good with a decent amount of humor to it that was unexpected. Honestly though if it wasn't for this thread I would have never thought of it being "this generations Star Wars", which I don't think it is.

    Every gushing review that Last Year at Marienbad has ever received is completely warranted. Easily one of the best films I've seen.

    And also, both volumes of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac are up on Netflix Instant. Surprisingly hadn't seen that mentioned, even on instantwatcher. And if you're an Amazon Prime member both Cheap Thrills and Enemy (same director as last year's Prisoners) are now up and free to stream.

    Yes, Enemy is the same director as Prisoners (and Jake Gyllenhal stars in both) but that movie couldn't be more different from Prisoners. I enjoyed it, but it's much more an art film.

    Just watched it. Aside from the ending and a few brief dream sequences, way too straightforward to be considered an art film I'd say. But yeah, that ending. Not sure how anyone could react too positively toward that.

    In general, Alamo Drafthouse is very reasonably priced, but that could totally change based on their overhead at this location. The Regal cinema downtown at LA Live already costs $16 for a matinee and there are no frills at all. I can't imagine this costing more.

    It works really well. If you want to order during the movie, you write it on a card and put it in a little holder, and everything is done silently. I saw Gravuty at one in Austin last November and it was great. There are similar theaters in Williamsburg and Seattle that do it well too.

    Also, someone told me that the Sundance theater that occupies what used to be the Llaemmle's on Sunset serves alcohol and food during the movies, and isn't super fancy and expensive like iPic. I need to check it out.

    I saw Woody Allen's new movie Magic in the Moonlight at the Island Cinemas in Fashion Island yesterday. The film was meh in my opinion but the theatre was awesome. They serve beer and wine to you in your seat!

    There's this one in the SF East Bay Area called, The Vine Cinema & Alehouse. It was originally built in the 50s and was quite run down by the 90s. So much so, when I saw Se7en there, the theater's ambiance suited the movie perfectly.

    They've since renovated and have 13 beers on tap, wines and a menu, with the food/drinks delivered right to your seat, table, or couch. All very reasonably priced.

    Sundance Sunset has a great (if small) rotating beer selection and a good kitchen, but they don't serve in the screening room. Also, tickets are $5 on Tuesdays, so it's time to make your maiden voyage there.
