    I just watched Gandhi for the first time. It was an emotional experience. It was a gratifying to experience this film amidst all this fighting going on everywhere. We forget what real strength looks like. Gush gush gush I'm on too much wine.

    that's good to hear. i went to an AMC here with food service and it was obnoxious. you could order through a little thing on your seat, but when it came time to get the bill and stuff there was talking. and the movie was ending so it was a really annoying time to have people talking all around you. it reminded me of a comedy club. i wouldn't do it again.

    and i finished the up series yesterday (56 up). i enjoyed it, but it's hard to watch back to back. there's a lot of repeated archival footage in each iteration of the film which gets repetitive. i can't believe they kept it going this long.

    Alamo Drafthouse has a very strict no-talking policy - they will escort anybody being disruptive out of the theater. So it's all really built into the whole experience.

    A nifty little revenge thriller called Blue Ruin is now up on Netflix Instant. I wasn't quite as high on it as some, but it's good and worth your time.

    Jacob's Ladder is A superb film and one of my fave psychological thrillers. So many of those images I watched as a child are forever etched into my head....it's influence is truly felt to this day in film and in video games alike. I'm sure the 'Silent Hill' franchise owes a large debt to its imagery because of it. The demon grind/fucking Jacob's wife on the dancefloor sure was intense for a 9 year old when I first watched it.

    you and I grew up in the same era. Trips to the video store always included a comedy (usually some sexed up "Last American Virgin/Revenge of the Nerds" awkwardness to watch with the parents) plus an action (anything Stallone, Norris, Bronson, or Schwarzenagger) or horror (bloodier the better) movie. Action if dad was home because he wanted to see someone kick ass and not take names, horror if I got to stay up late on the weekend.

    Did we just become friends? Ha. It was always awkward watching any comedic sexed up scene, around my dad in particular although at that age it was definitely a confusing mix of emotions that wouldn't really form into the all out horniness present in my teens.

    Also, don't forget the Van Damme action gems lumped into the dad pick at the video store. My earliest memories of quality time with the old timer was my brother and I cozying up with my pops for a back to back viewing of 'Bloodsport' and 'Kickboxer'

    I can't remember if the first R-rated film (that my folks took me to) was Braveheart or Vampire in Brooklyn, but it was either of those 2.

    I watched Thelma & Louise for the first time last night and that is one extremely overrated piece of shit of a movie. A 2 hour long Melissa Etheridge music video with no actual Melissa Etheridge music.

    No. Somebody told me Ridley Scott directed it and I still get a rude horn from Geena Davis so I gave it a shot.

    I remember my parents letting me watch the climax of Aliens, when Ripley takes the elevator down to rescue the girl. I think I was 9 or 10. I remember thinking it was all gross (especially Bishop puking that white stuff and blowing himself apart), but COOL.

    My dad was a huge Stern fan, so he took me to see Private Parts when I was fairly young. And showed me The Shining at a young age too.

    The first R film I saw was definitely Fargo. Parents made us cover our eyes during the sex scene but we were allowed to watch the wood-chipper scene. Afterwards, my mom remarked that it would have made more sense to switch that editing.

    I saw The Exorcist when I was around 8. Shit had me bawling. I had definitely been watching Robocop, Predator, Alien, and Terminator before that. I was definitely around 6 when I told my parents I wanted to name my in utero sister after my favorite movie at the time, Terminator. My parents obviously didn't supervise me well, so it's hard to pinpoint my first R movie.

    i wasn't really censored either. i remember running out of the theatre crying during the intro credits of terminator 2 when the skull is in the fire. the only movie my mom ever got mad about was my dad taking me to see dazed and confused. i think she knew how i would turn out before i did.

    My dad took me to see a movie called Smooth Talk when I was about 14. It was with Laura Dern and was all about her characters' sexual awakening, and in the end she gets taken advantage of by some slimy older guy. I think he thought of it as After School Special lesson type material but at the time I was mortified.

    So, Boyhood. Wow. If there was an award for pure craft, it would be hard to argue against this being a near masterwork. But unfortunately, that's not reality. It's funny that the main character mentions Bright Eyes at one point, because I imagine the main divide between those who love it and those who don't is precisely a band like that - if you're ok with completely overly zealous and nauseatingly eager music that is always trying to be so fucking important and meaningful, then you'll likely be onboard with this film. But, if you're the type of person who is really turned off by all of those attributes and can barely get to the end of a Japandroids song without rolling your eyes, it's possible you'll see this film as being laughably trite. Most of the great coming-of-age films have all felt natural, and this feels completely forced. Not to mention the political shit that is so ham-fisted and un-vague that even Michael Moore probably blushed. It's not bad overall, like some have mentioned before it doesn't feel as long as its running time and it is indeed pretty spectacular to watch a character grow up over the course of a movie. It's just way too full of cringeworthy acting, American Pie-esque musical interludes, and strange tone to really pull of what so many have been claiming it does.
