    Definitely no point, but a fun ride none the less. Really liked the exorcism story at the end.

"But its sense of fun is so relentless and excessive, it all ends up being extremely tedious and shallow." "The net result of all this cinematic whirling, of the "wrong" music and of the parodic plot, is that nothing at all in the film moves us."
    The movie has a 7.6 rating on IMDB with over 164k votes. So, while critics and the "Academy" find it meh (although it won 2 oscars and was nominated for several more, including Best Picture), it would seem that most people do not. I have a very hard time sitting through musicals, which makes me feel meh about most of them.

    It also grossed over 57m in the US, which is more than it's budget (but not by much). I would say it was pretty successful, and doesn't really spell "meh", even if I disagree.

    I loved Chicago. I actually need to buy another copy because my kids scratched up the old one. And Moulin Rouge was amazing! So ridiculous but heartfelt as well.

    Please help - is there any site that will list ALL showings of a movie in Southern California? I desperately need to see Evil Dead but it's only playing at a 1.5 star theater in City of Commerce.

    If you have the Flixster app, you can search by movie, then "Get Showtimes" and change the distance and go as far out as 100 miles. I just checked and that Commerce theatre is the only one that comes up.

    I watched Side Effects, the newest Soderbergh film, yesterday. It was an entertaining psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns; very indebted to Hitchcock in its tension and general feel/pacing. Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum both have impressive turns in their roles, and even though it gets a bit out there by the end, I really enjoyed it. I'd recommend it.

    Rooney looked a lot like Zooey Deschanel in that role, but she seemed so lost and so believably sad.

    Upstream Color was lovely. I certainly kept paying attention more than otherwise because it was Carruth, and it paid off. The ending gets glorious in just the way I love. The sound of the film is also great.

    I made it through 20 minutes of Cosmopolis last night before turning it off. Usually I love Cronenberg, but nothing about this made me want to keep watching.

    Also watched Compliance, which was good, but uncomfortable to watch at times.

    Anyone watch "behind the candelabra" ?

    Loved it. From the writing, cinematography and directing to the acting, make up work, and set design just an all around great
    film. Shame it is not allowed to be nominated for any Academy Awards.

    I will watch Candleabra... I like Soderbergh, Damon, Douglas, Lowe, etc.

    Saw "Star Trek 2: Something Dark Happens" and liked it a lot more than I thought I would after the aggressively stupid Star Trek reboot. Benedict Cumberbatch was quite good as the villain (although I wanted a little more drama and less action from him) and the development of the characters was pretty solid.

    On the downside, it's definitely more fun for those of us who obsessively watched the original movies. One of our group had no clue what was going on, because she'd never seen those... but obviously there were quite a few strong nods/direct thefts from those movies.

    Just saw that Wild Strawberries is coming out on Criterion blu-ray!! My favorite Bergman I've seen so far. Still very taken back from watching in school this past semester. I would highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.

    I have watched a lot of Trek including the Shatner run of movies and the fact that this movie has anything to do at all with The Wrath of Kahn, etc. bugs the hell out of me. I was all excited to see Into Darkness and had no idea it had anything to do with Kahn. Once a friend who saw ID said, yeah, Benny Crumbles was Kahn I am down to little or no interest. They're telling us they're lazy by remaking/revisiting/redoing the old stories. I want the rest of the universe, folks!

    Obviously spoilers abound....





    .... I loved the original Trek 2 and the original series episode(s) that spawned it. I really appreciated the drama that this bad guy had a really legit reason to despise Kirk, specifically, where most bad guys just had a rooting interest in evil, they have no real tie to the good guy they're terrorizing. That said, what early Khan had to go through was much more convincing than what new Khan faced. He's like "Kirk, you're personally responsible for killing my friends and family by stranding us in an uninhabitable planet" while Cumberbatch is like "Well, I'm pissed because I THOUGHT my crew MIGHT be dead-ish."

    But I thought the new guy did a good acting job, there was just a little too much Star Wars reboot car-surfing for me. LOL.

    So I watched It's Kind Of A Funny Story last night. I know it's a few years old already but just heard of it and thought I'll give it a shot I like Galifianakis. I wouldn't even consider it an above average movie at all. It might be because I can relate to it a lot but I absolutely loved it. One of the most enjoyable movies I have seen in a while, which is strange considering I think it is only an average movie.

    Definitely my favorite of his I've seen as well. Persona is a pretty close second though.

    Wild Strawberries is probably my third favorite Bergman, behind Winter Light and Cries and Whispers.

    It is definitely the initial film I would recommend for someone getting into Bergman for the first time though.

    I'm not fond of Persona in the slightest, but its totally because of my association with a certain profesor when I watched it... Anyways, lots of one I haven't seen on huluplus of his. Winter Light will be next, thanks.

    Also, doing a Three Colors rewatch soon with a friend who has not seen any of them. Recommendations on Kieślowski aside from those? The Double Life of Veronique is the only title I recall looking at his filmography.
