    It will be, have faith. Im hoping that there is a huge plot twist at the end and WB is trying to keep it secret for as long as they can.

    Saw "Now You See Me" today on a whim. Went to the theater planning to see the new Star Trek, but at the last second went with the former after the guy in front of me grabbed a ticket for it. Walked in with absolutely no idea what it was about and must say that was one of the most enjoyable movie experiences I have had in a long while.

    A second viewing of Post Tenebras Lux at Cinefamily this afternoon confirmed my adoration for the film. The new projector looks absolutely stellar, and it was a real treat to see it on the big screen again.

    Highly, highly recommended.

    Post Tenebras Lux was absolutely gorgeous. Though, the EXTREMELY shallow depth of field was very distracting to me at times given the film is in 4:3 ratio. A lot of the side distortion would encroach in on the subject and make it hard to keep track of movement, even at times doubling objects. When it was working it was extremely effective in drawing you into the dream like haze of children's POV or the naturalist scenes of the county side, but it felt extremely unneeded for the full film.

    Plot wise, need some more time to think upon it. Reminds me of how I felt walking out of Tree of Life more then anything recently. But yeah, go grab a couch and enjoy it while you can.

    Hopefully they won't wait for opening day for critics to review it.
    Reviews are pouring in. Mostly very very positive. I've excited, going Thursday night!

    Considering the first one was such a well written and well directed masterpiece that out shined its visual effects, I don't know who wouldn't be super stoked for this sequel.

    That is probably the best thing he has done. At least it didn't try to hide the fact that it was the cinematic equivalent to the WWF.

    Dawn Of The Dead was pretty awesome, actually.

    The problem with 300 was what was added to the source material...a bunch of dumbed-down political nonsense and totally flat, not-quite-there emotional connection with the wife character.

    Snyder is frustrating because he's a very talented craftsman...he has an amazing eye and he obviously has great vision for what he's doing. He's ambitious and has a lot of heart put into his projects (unlike say, a Brett Ratner)...but I think he might be just kind of dumb.

    I agree with Drinkey.
    But if superman sucks, (Christopher Nolan is behind so it shouldn't), hopefully World War Z will be good.
    Should you even read the two novels before going into the film, because I heard the movie was pretty damn different from its source material.

    After borrowing it from a friend for a few months I finally got around to watching Drive. It was an enjoyable movie but nothing special. I would say the fist 3/4 of the movie was good, the ending of it was really bad.

    Also I've saw Superman already and in my opinion it was really fucking good, but I tend to like superhero movies.

    Major parking lot irie, then 'Forbidden Planet' at South Coast Regency tomorrow night for the first time. Yippers.



    "When Adams and his crew are sent to investigate the silence from a planet inhabited by scientists, he finds all but two have died. Dr. Morbius and his daughter Altaira have somehow survived a hideous monster which roams the planet. Unknown to Adams, Morbius has made a discovery, and has no intention of sharing it (or his daughter!) with anyone."

    This Is The End was a lot of fun. Played very well during a sold out show last night. Lots of laughs throughout. Maybe a bit smug and a few pacing issues but all around one of the funniest comedies I've seen in a while. Danny McBride is fantastic as usual.

    I agree with this 100%. I'm still a little bitter about The Watchmen. It wasn't a bad movie, I guess, it just wasn't great, when it really could have been, and I can't help but feel a lot of it falls on Snyder's shoulders. The movie looked incredible, and that is undeniable. He has a great eye and great taste. Some of the casting was absolutely brilliant and deserves recognition (Rorschach and The Comedian)... but some of the casting was just horrible (Night Owl and Silk Spectre, mostly), how they portrayed Ozymadius' character was just atrocious and ran contrary to the graphic novel, the sex scene was just plain embarrassing, and the music was some of the most amateur-ish shit I have ever witnessed on screen.

    The ending lacked the punch in gut the graphic novel did as well. I felt sick reading the final section of book, but I could not disagree with what was being said. However in the film it was like "This is what I did and this is why I did it," and the viewers goes "Thats fucked up. But Ok. I follow. Go on..." and I feel the big "reveal" at the end is what really made me fall in love with the story. I didn't even have a problem with the Squid not being in the film (I understand it work incredibly well in the graphic novel, but it wouldn't have made sense to filmgoers who were not familiar with the source material). The ending was just a let down compared to how intense the ending of the novel was.

    All in all, what Drinkey said. Snyder is just dumb and if Superman is as great as the trailers make it out to be, I have no doubt Nolan played a huge part in that.

    The LA Conservancy screened My Fair Lady at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion tonight. I don't think I'd seen it since I was a kid. It was a treat seeing that beautiful film on such a large screen.

    The guy can make a good trailer. Suckerpunch had a good trailer for fucks sake. No one is arguing that Snyder is dumb. Suckerpunch was his brainchild, and that says it all really.

    the movie house was pretty full of mostly elderly and the film got a solid, albeit not rousing applause afterward, but 'Forbidden Planet' was terrible. How is that a scifi classic with an eight rating on imdb? Oh man it was bad.

    And hello to Rage too.

    This past Sunday was a total movie day for me. Started the day watching "Hoop Dreams" and "30 for 30: June 17, 1994." Then we went to the Kubrick Exhibit at LACMA, which was AMAZING if you haven't already gone. To finish out the day, we watched "Lost Highway." Now THAT was a Sunday, if you ask me.

    Man of Steel. The last Zod fight scene was a bit long, that's prob the worst thing I can say about the movie. Henry Cavill did a great job, can't wait to see what they follow it up with.

    If you've been waiting as long as I have for a Superman movie where he actually shows off his superpowers and gets in extremely crazy battles, then Man Of Steel is pretty great. I have no problem separating this movie from the past movies because, well, that's kind of the whole point of a remake.
