    Godzilla will be terrible despite a great cast. Why? Because it's a terrible, terrible premise for a movie that is trying to be anything but schlock. It's a fucking Sci-Fi (the TV channel) movie. Why would Cranston do this? The man seems to actually have some real integrity.

There are multiple scenes in the movie where the "hero" needlessly puts his men in danger in service of his own machismo. Sure the movie displays a certain awe for the skills and fighting abilities of our servicemen but that's pretty consistent with a lot of the frontline journalism the movie emulates.

    At the very least it was an honest depiction of effects that a combat environment have on the psyche of men who have served. The movie ends with the main character basically admitting that he's no longer fit to be a husband and a father. That the military has ruined him, to a certain extent.
    I don't really agree with this assessment. I thought it was fairly clear that war, not the military, had ruined his life... and that his desire to end it already colored most of his professional mishaps. He was on the edge because he was past the point of caring, and he was past the point of caring because he'd seen so much dying already.

    Also, it was a very good movie for fans of procedurals. If you can sit and enjoy hours upon hours of Zodiac, Flight 93, and similar edge of your seat by-the-book movies, Hurt Locker is fantastic. That's me to a T, and I get that it's not everyone.

    So, I know this movie has been discussed in this thread before, but the line-up this year reminds me of 24 Hour Party People, one of my favorite movies. Pretty stoked to have gotten it in the mail today. Wrapping up the day and about to pour myself a fabulous drink, get bloody high and watch this movie. Excite.

    Are you being sincere? In the last few years, Cranston has signed on for Len Wiseman's Total Recall, John Carter, Red Tails, all three of Seth MacFarlane's shows, and of course, Rock of Fucking Ages. He'll do any goddamn thing that draws a paycheck.

    Keeping with the holiday theme this weekend, I'm looking for a quality movie to watch with a few drinks on Saturday that's Irish or is made by an Irish director.

    Any suggestions?
    5/05 - Thee Oh Sees - The Smell
    5/08 - The Acid - El Rey (?)
    5/14 - Melody's Echo Chamber - Roxy (?)
    5/20 - Hiatus Kaiyote - Roxy (?)
    5/23 - Ceremony - Echoplex (?)

    I also think Jim Sheridan is pretty damn good as far as super-traditional, sentimentally-inclined dramatists go. He has a habit of casting Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father and The Boxer), which helps. I particularly remember liking In America. I can't vouch for his 50 Cent movie, though.

    I like the Martin McDonagh suggestion.

    There's a 2002 movie called Bloody Sunday which I thought was well done.

    And I guess I should rewatch In America now that I've moved to Hell's Kitchen.

    Oh, and if you want to watch an Irish movie that is truly gut wrenching and depressing, check out The Magdelene Sisters.

    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 think this has to happen, especially since alcohol will be involved and yes I've heard of the ending to The Crying Game haha.

    Hunger is fantastic. I really hope McQueen didn't blow his load with it, I thought Shame was a pretty significant step down.

    Bloody Sunday is really good. I nearly included it because I thought Greengrass was Irish, but he's apparently English and it's an English film that just happens to take a non-nationalist point of view (a la City of Life and Death).

    Ah, yeah that's been in the queue for a bit. I intend on watching it eventually, but since copious amounts of alcohol will be involved I think Leprechaun: In the Hood is the frontrunner at this point.

    Also, maybe it's 'cause there's been so much discussion around it.... but last night I couldn't really sleep due to my thinking and trying to interpret PSH's and Phoenix's relationship. That right there says it's a very special film.

    SPOILERS

    Do your past failures bother you? Have you ever had sexual intercourse with one of your family members? That scene was so great.

    Also, one thing I didn't really understand. At the end when Lancaster says they fought together in Prussia and mailed out those pigeons.. is he talking about they knew each other in a past life?

    Yes, he mentions feeling like they had known each other previously a few times.

    Okay, that farewell speech he made to Phoenix was so good.

    One more thing, am I the only one who had trouble hearing what they were saying? Even with my TV on super high volume I found myself rewinding many times to hear them clearer.
