    I get where Schoolio is coming from on his disappointment for Gravity. Visually, it's incredible (I saw it in 3D). But I didn't feel very invested in Sandra Bullock's character - the dialogue didn't help either. I wasn't disappointed, though - totally worth the ticket price to see on the big screen. I'd give it a B+.
    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.

    Absolutely.

    That's the dumbest fucking logic of this conversation to date. I'm choosing to be monumentally disappointed with this film, and could easily alter my perception if not for my inherent thirst for complaining?

    Rush was fantastic, especially if you're a fan of F1's golden era

    Gravity was the most beautiful disappointment of the year. Its as if they flushed the WCS within the first few minutes and accidentally jettisoned more logic than piss. Seeing it within earshot of a group of armchair planetarium managers who felt the same way was the only saving grace for my viewing experience

    We're not going to agree on this. Sunshine is 1/3 shitty, but the first two thirds of it are outstanding.

    Sunshine is an excellent Danny Boyle movie, but being a Danny Boyle movie means he's going to use his Danny Boyle official set of circumstances that cause the lead dude to lose his shit and disconnect from his current reality. Knowing that going in to any Danny Boyle movie kind of helps to swallow what happens as the plot develops.

    And I love me some Danny Boyle.

    Well, I definitely agree with that but making 2/3 of a good movie doesn't usually cut it in my book. And that final third is particularly bad.

    Or it completely turned into Event Horizon. I still really like Sunshine though, ending and all.

    I actually prefer Event Horizon to Sunshine. That movie scared the shit out of me when I first saw it.

    I think Devil's Rejects is the much better film. But I love those movies. They are my favorite "tune in, turn off" movies. The ending to Devil's Rejects has top three usage of audio and video with Fight Club being number one of course.
    Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls

    Just surprised because I didn't see that title coming from them, but it's good news. Read about the extras, and it sounds like quite a nice package.

    I wasn't too surprised about the other titles (especially Theif, but that's due to some inside info)...

    Still waiting for them to do Eraserhead (as hinted at in their yearly title-hint picture), though...

    Just because I have inside info doesn't mean I share it. I keep that stuff under my hat for a number of reasons.

    That Throne of Blood though does sound pretty great. Nothing like (SPOILER) dying under a hail of arrows in HD.
