    That is not a terrible movie. Far from it. One of my all time favorites.

    I have but I wouldn't necessarily want to do it in a movie theater. It's a great flick but fucking long, and as pretty as it is I'm not sure it's the kind of lush visual that still impresses today. Like it's not 2001 where I can imagine going to see it in a theater is just a completely different experience. I'd watch it at home if I were you.

    The fuck is with you and these old movie theaters?

    really? I didn't feel anything you'd normally associate a quality Sci-fi film with. No edge or bleakness. No mystery. No caring for the characters and their impending outcomes.

    I don't think it was as serious as it should have been. The rank escalating love affair, the whiskey bottle generation, etc. A bit corny overall. Liked the laser guns though.

    I saw it years ago at a theater, there was an intermission halfway through.
    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.

    Nosť, but pretty sure I was the only one smoking out and urinating on the side of the building before the show. Didn't see anyone else.

    And, yes, 2001...that's engaging Scifi. Thanks for the tip on Lawrence. Actually DVR'd it from HDNet, so may go that route up on the plasma with surround.

    I disagree. Lawrence is one of the those movies that should ONLY be seen in the theater. Its scope is lost in almost all other settings. 70mm on the biggest screen you can get to. There will certainly be an intermission as well.

    Yeah, and what does "in one sitting" mean when you're talking about a movie with a built-in intermission, anyway?

    Superman was aight. Didn't love it. Cavill was good. I love Michael Shannon, but his character was too whitebread compared to the Supes 2 version. Some villains need to twirl the moustache to be memorable, and Shannon didn't do that. The best line from S2 was nowhere to be found, either. Sigh.

    I did like the idea of showing us more of Krypton, I liked the look at Smallville and Clark in "First Blood" hitcher mode, and the lack of slow-motion fight scenes was preferable after all the other Snyder stuff. But yeah, the fight scenes went on long and the sequences are becoming too familiar... small town big bad guy fight... Thor. Destroy the big city... Avengers. Spunky girl outsmarting the military... Thor and Hulk. Superhero smiles creepy while figuring out how to jump/fly... Spider-man.... TWICE.

    I was glad to hear Chris Cornell's "Seasons" in the movie, though, and the drum corps they collected for the drum scenes included Danny Caray, Jason Bonham, Sheila E, and Josh Freese, so that was groovy. But where was Batman when the whole world was at stake? Jerk elitist.

    It was a fantastic moment, I think, and they didn't shaft the song with a single verse. I do lurv Singles, though.

    Dear Sofia Copola,

    If you are going to continue making movies for 17 year old girls you might want to start pandering to them. The showing of "The Bling Ring" I was at everyone walked away disappointed (little to my surprise), and even my gf who loves your movies thought it was shallow and uninspired. I will give you that you had a couple decent shots (much to my surprise), but that does not make up for a 90 minute movie that felt as if it were 2 hours.

    Love,

    Dear Uncleanahole,

    Iíll always live for seventeen as my Father killed me at that age, remember? The longer the film, the longer the seventeen. You mustnít have any idea what it means to lose everything at seventeen and the power to share it back. Now add a soundtrack song, preferably one of my hip ones, and take a shower.

    Forever,

    Sofie

I'm pissed I didn't see this 16mm gem on film when it played the Downtown Indie last summer.

    I watched Deepa Mehta's Water tonight. It expires on Netflix Instant in a few days, I don't remember how I heard of it in the first place, but it was really good. A story about widows in 1938 India living in a temple, and how religious oppression affects their lives, brainwashes them, etc. A very powerful film, and the cinematography was just gorgeous.

    Check it out if you've got some free time between now and Sunday night, I probably would have never watched it if I had let it expire.

    I loved this movie. The other two in trilogy (Fire and Earth) are supposed to be fantastic as well.

    We're more than halfway through the year and I'm bored, so what the heck. Here are my favorite movies of the year so far.

    1. The Grandmaster
    2. Before Midnight
    3. Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons
    4. Stoker
    5. Trance

    As usual, there are at least a half dozen films I wanted to catch but still haven't that would maybe make this list, but I enjoyed all of the above and am sure at least two of them will make my year end list.

    Edit: My favorite film of 2012, The Hunt, opens next week. Go see it.

    I watched Luis Bunuel's The Exterminating Angel last night. That has got to be the greatest ending to a film I've ever seen. Although I liked it, I wasn't completely enamored with the rest of it, but that ending. Completely blew me away.

    I fucking hated Frances Ha - or at least, the first 20 minutes before I walked out in disgust. Still need to see Before Midnight, and also Laurence Anyways and You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet! - hopefully this week.

    I don't like to make lists until it's time to publish it and leave it alone, but Upstream is definitely the class of 2013 so far, along with Spring Breakers, Mud and To the Wonder. Keeping in mind, of course, that I considered Post Tenebras Lux a 2012 film even though it came out this summer.

    I caught Ben Wheatley's Sightseers On Demand yesterday and found it quite entertaining. I don't want to say too much about what it entails, but if you're looking for a violent dark comedy with style to burn, it's a worthy choice.
