Had no idea that was the Aron Ralston ('Between a Rock and a Hard Place') movie. The book was so good, so descriptive (the kid's arrogance basically jumped off the pages though, to be fair, it's also what saved him) and so moving there's simply no way I can actually watch the Hollywood-ization of it.

Read the book.

If the movie got ya the book will too and it's worth your time despite seeing the movie.

Not dismissing your opinion Lee, it carries weight and might be enough to get me to see it alone. But I'm wondering if anyone who has read the book has seen the movie and what they think.

Is that out on video yet?

Not out yet and it won't be out for a good while.

I'll take your advice re: the book. Just sayin, this movie really hit me. Franco was made for the role and Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Slumdog, etc)was the right director for it.

To be fair, since I'm still down for the count as far as work goes and still looking for movies, I'm picking up Trainspotting at the library and 28 Days Later at Blockbuster.

What blows is my 16 yr old has to drive me.

I either need to get my head fixed or get my 16 yr old her permanent license. Feel like an invalid being driven around.

Both films are really really good.

127 Hours was actually pretty good, I was surprised at much I liked James Franco in the lead. The only prevoius image I have of him was in the overrated Pineapple Express.

I hated Pinnapple Express.

That said my Inner Freaks and Geeks love was fulfilled seeing Franco put on that great of an acting display. Guy has mad talent but instead of using it has traditionally just picked weird ass roles that amuse him.

Yeah. Though, to be honest, til I got sick I hadn't been there in nearly a year because Netflix is fine most of the time.

But I'm an impulsive man who requires immediate gratification. If you recommend 28 Days Later and Trainspotting and I have nothing but time to watch them, then I want to watch them immediately.

And I can't do that with Netflix given the mail issue as well as the fact that those movies aren't available instantly for whatever reason.

So I'm off to Blockbuster where they now deeply discount movies and also give you a free new release seemingly every week because they're becoming obsolete.

This is England is available via Netflix instantly so I can watch that one in next couple days.

White Lightnin' I'll check on when I go.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ten movies nominated, but only two of them have a chance at winning.

Conventional Wisdom as of today has The King's Speech as the slight favorite over The Social Network.

This year is shaping up like last year...there are five movies on that list I'd be OK with if they won; the two above, and also True Grit, Winter's Bone, and Inception (but there is no chance at all for Winter's Bone or Inception, and little chance for True Grit).

And no movies in the list this year that I despise (like Atonement, Precious, No Country for Old Men, Brokeback Mountain, etc)...which is nice.

The acting categories are going to be totally boring, with three of the four of them total locks (Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale). The only one up for play would be between Melissa Leo and Amy Adams for "The Fighter"...and they may split the vote, allowing young Hailee Steinfeld to win for True Grit.

Freaks and Geeks is underrated. Show produced Franco, Rogen, Segal, and Cardellini.

Although I'm kinda getting sick of Rogen being overused.

I'm going to assume it's the same reason people don't bring up 'After Hours' or 'Bringing out the Dead' when talking about Scorcese. That doesn't mean they won't recommend 'Raging Bull' and 'The Departed'.

Looking forward to watching both Trainspotting and 28 Days Later tonight.

Ugh...

Maybe just '28 Days Later' then.

And after watching the first two LotR movies with the kids this past weekend I feel almost obligated to finish that trilogy.

I think they lost interest in hour two of movie two. They were openly rooting for those Hobbits to be killed and mutilated. ;-) ;) :wink:

The both of those are too much for one night, split em up, do yourself a favor. That said I love both dearly and the accents are worth it (and easier than Snatch and Lock Stock, FWIW)

Gonna go '28 Days Later' tonight. I'm gonna give the neurontin and the other shit another day to work on the headache before I go with deep accents ;-) ;) :wink: . Although, 'Snatch' wasn't bad for me. Thought that was one of the more underrated movies I've ever seen.

If I still can't sleep after '28 Days' I'll go Netflix on CDT's suggestion. Couldn't find White Lightnin' at the store or at either library I hit. By the way, if Blockbuster's are nearly extinct, how the fuck are libraries still alive?

If you liked Snatch you also gotta watch Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It's the better brother movie, FWIW. Although thickest of thick accents. Snatch and Lock Stock are the only two movies I've ever wished for subtitles on.

Lock Stock is definitely good, but the better of the two?

Not close IMO.

Better talent, better storyline, better soundtrack in Snatch.

But yah, you are right that anyone that liked snatch should see lock stock.

I'm with e0y on this one. Like Snatch a lot, but I love Lock Stock (I prefer that soundtrack too). Maybe it's because I saw Lock Stock about 20 times before snatch came out. I dig it a lot.

But that's a matter of opinion.

What I really want to know is how the hell Peeker went the last 15 years without seeing Trainspotting.

The older I get the more I need subtitles. I've apparently ruined my ears somehow and I can't seem to make out a damn thing anymore. I can pause a movie, rewind 8 seconds, and turn on subtitles in the pitch black without even putting down my beer.

Yah, I saw lock stock a few years after I saw snatch about 20 times.

Could be a factor.

Agree on Trainspotting, easily one of my absolute favorites.

Yeah it is, it includes Inception (which should win best screenplay) as the worst acted and worst ending for a nominee ever.

You gonna tell me you didn't know the ending ten minutes before you saw it? Most predictable shit ever, which is fine if the general acting of the film doesn't suck ass.

Was the easiest and most predictable way out of the most brilliant idea I have seen in a long time. Ending was set to do nothing more than leave the door open for a box office sequel.

God I hope there isn't a sequel, not what I saw there at all.

If a sequel setup was wanted,they should have left the top spinning IMO.

That way there would be a reason for a sequel beyond a moneygrab

Seriously dude, most debated thing ever:

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/buzz-lo ... ption.html

It was left wide open. Left to create a "you don't get it!$!$!" buzz and left to create a "maybe we can follow up if we want to" buzz. I think it kept spinning, you don't. Cain can eat a dick, as Nolan is notorious for only clueing people into what they must know.

Ending was horrible and cheap. A predictable wanna-be Sopranos that will very possibly yield a sequel.

And again, worst acted film I have seen nominated (Avatar aside) EVER.

You dont see the wobbling as significant at all? I think it was shown in the dream 3 times, never wobbled in the slightest.

Nolan's Quote:

Nolan explains that to blatantly state whether or not Cobb was dreaming would not only be a disservice to the film (and its audience), but that people obsessed with finding the answer are missing the point entirely:

“There can’t be anything in the film that tells you one way or another because then the ambiguity at the end of the film would just be a mistake … It would represent a failure of the film to communicate something. But it’s not a mistake. I put that cut there at the end, imposing an ambiguity from outside the film. That always felt the right ending to me — it always felt like the appropriate ‘kick’ to me….The real point of the scene — and this is what I tell people — is that Cobb isn’t looking at the top. He’s looking at his kids. He’s left it behind. That’s the emotional significance of the thing.”

Seriously, you don't see it not falling and it only wobbling as a cheap attempt to take a predictable ending to something we argue about on a message board?

^ my point. sad, predictable end. WITH THE SEQUAL CHANCE OUT THERE~

*and that quote you just quoted is a punt that dodges the answer entirely

I know it was different that what was shown in the dream....and I do hope for no sequel.

What do you think the batting avg of sequels are? Pretty effing horrible.

And I know what that quote says, I was just bringing it in.

People can bring info to the table even if it goes against what they are saying.

Its not illegal or anything. I just found that now, so I brought it in.

Guess I didn't see that so much....but admittedly, I loved the concepts so damn much, I can overlook bad acting for it.

Just like the original matrix.

'28 Days ' was well worth the scurrying around for it.

Well worth it. Liked it a lot better than Zombieland fwiw.

Did you actually like Zombieland?

Was it in the same vein or another?

Same vein in that it dealt with the undead. But it was more of a lark with Woody Harrelson.

Just saw someone else mention Zombieland above someplace. Zombieland was a popcorn movie.

28 Days much darker and more serious and layered with much more than zombies. More of an indictment of the living and human nature IMO.

Another excellent suggestion. 'This is England' was tremendous. I always thought, because of a geocentric worldview, that Stephen Graham was an American actor. Dude's in gangster movies and plays Capone in Boardwalk Empire fer crissakes and he LOOKS like many of my wife's relatives ;-) ;) :wink: .

The dude's as British as the Queen.

Awesome flick.

And those who can stream Netflix can watch it as soon as you want. Worth a view for sure.
