American Hustle better be better than Silver Linings Playbook. All the actors in there are excellent, no stupid fucking ending, thanks.

My watch-list for this year goes:

The Act of Killing
Her (pushed back to early January, but still)
Inside Llewyn Davis
Maybe this American Hustle thing
Possibly the Nebraska thing
Probably not the Gravity thing

Any chance anyone's ever watched any of these Ethan Hawke/other person "Before..." movies? If so, are they good or just some chick-flickery?

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn directing and a excellent cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Bencio del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C Reilly, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon. One of my favorite Marvel characters.

Plus there will more of Thanos in GotG, not the main villain, but the puppeteer behind the story.

I watched the first one, which came out not too long after I did my Euro backpack thing so I thought I would love it but it was just blah blah blah Walmart-quality philosophizing and I don't really care for Julie Delpy. If I was to compare it to Browns QB's, it was Ken Dorsey.

Needless to say, I didn't watch the next 2.

But there are people who I know and think well of that really like them, so maybe it's just me.

A remake of Robocop and a Godzilla reboot.....

I grew up watching and loving Godzilla movies, if it's not a guy in a rubber suit smashing buildings and fighting other monsters, I don't give a shit.

PLUS WE GET 2 MORE PARANORMAL ACTIVITY MOVIES! YAAAAAAAAAAY!

I am interested in Pompeii though.

Dallas Buyers Club looks good too. Apparently Leto is fantastic, and it's been a hell of a few years for Matthew mcConaughey. I always liked him, but I wasn't too interested in all the Romcom shit he was doing. I like romantic comedy like anything else...if it's good. Shit like afools Gold and failure to launch weren't.

But damn if that dude didn't hurl his ass down a different road starting a few years ago. I can't wait for True Detective too.

As far as the Before Sunrise movies, I feel EXACTLY the same as Hiko. I saw the first one, was underwhelmed and didn't get what all the adulation was about. Just figured it was me. I think they made another one recently, no? I considered trying it again since it's been decades since I watched the first one. But, who has time for rewatching shit you already know you don't like?

Saw the trailer for Pompeii, and it's cut to look like Jon Snow vs. the Volcano. Not getting a good feeling from it.

I am getting the babysitter and taking the wife to see American Hustle. This is not a discussion item in our house, it's happening.

I will go see The Hobbit this year, early reviews say it's better than last year's, although I wasn't as offended by the movie as some critics were. It had its problems, but I've seen MUCH, MUCH worse.

I want to see the new Coen Bros. flick, but I have a feeling I'll have to wait for Netflix/Rental for that one.

If The Hobbit is in that jittery, vomit inducing FPS, it can go fuck itself.

Pompeii interests me because as you all know, i'm a Roman history freak. I haven't seen any trailers, so if it looks like shit, I'll wait for it to come out on BR.

Saw Inside Llewyn Davis last night and American Hustle tonight. Both were fantastic and totally deserving of the praise they're getting and the eventual BP nods. As well as being both very classic examples of their directors' work.

Oscar Isaac def needs a Best Actor nod for Llewyn, it needs Cinematograpy as well. Gorgeous film. I'd love Best Actor for Bale for AH, then Lawrence is a shoe in for Supp Actress. She stole the show in that movie.

I wasn't that impressed with American Hustle. The acting was great, the concept was great, and the characters were solid but the movie was pretty damn slow.

To the extent that's true, I blame it on how David O. Russell handled Amy Adams' character. She's outstanding, but a) almost in the film too much and b) in terms of who we care about, it's all about Bale's character in the end. Which is a shame b/c 2/3 of the film makes me care about her.

So American Hustle doesn't do what Silver Linings Playbook did and take a huge shit on itself right at the end, thus ruining the product as a whole?

It didn't do that, no. It just didn't have many ups and downs. It just stayed on the same plane. Not that I had a problem with the movie necessarily.

Saw the preview for the new RoboCop this weekend, not only does it look terrible, but it's PG-13.

Who the FUCK wants to watch a PG-13 RoboCop?

Am moderately interested in seeing the new "Robocop," PG-13 rating or not. (Have you seen some of the flicks that are getting PG-13s lately? They woulda been Rs 10 years ago.)

What's more than "moderately interesting" is the cast: Joel Kinnaman ("The Killing"), Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish (damn!), Jackie Earle Haley ("Watchmen"), Samuel L. Jackson and more. God, that's a killer lineup.

But if it gets a less than 40% rottentomato rating, I'll probably pass. After "This Is the End," no more stinkers for me.

This Is The End was great! And I think it got around an 80 on Rotten Tomatos. You just don't know what's good, Jerry. ;-) ;) :wink:

I'm not sure what to make of the new RoboCop. I'm not sure trying to make it a "good movie" is what that movie needs, if that makes any sense.

You're right, mother. It got an 83, which leads me to believe that I shouldn't have such blind faith in rottentomatoes.

Having written and published an apocalyptic novel in 2007, I probably take the subject too seriously, therefore couldn't appreciate the humor and sarcasm of the flick. Different strokes...

Last week, when the whole world did not have school, I took the 9 year old to see Saving Mr. Banks. It may not be everyone's cup of tea on these boards, but I loved it and so did my nine year old- although it bordered the line of heaviness for her. It is definitely more than just a movie about Mary Poppins. I don't go to enough movies to compare it- had over $50 in movie gift cards when I used it- but Emma Thompson deserves a nomination.

I could argue that the ending is a bit too tidy, "happy-feely," but it's not SLP-like.

On the Amy Adams character, it's just the way Russell pushes her to the side, tying her utterly to Bale, that annoyed me.

I also really enjoyed This Is The End, you just have to be willing to jump over the massive plot holes. The porn mag argument between McBride and Franco was hilarious, so was the scene were Jay finds Michael Cera in the bathroom. Cera's facial expressions are awesome.

I'm totally not on board with remaking Robocop, the first is fine as an 80's action/sci-fi movie. What more can be done with it? Other than adding a huge budget, tons of CGI, and a impressive cast list..... It's still Robocop, just with gilded trimmings. If you must remake a movie, pick lesser known one ( I love Robocop for mainly for nostalgic reasons).

A) Do you think the original RoboCop gets a PG-13? No. Not even close. (If you even consider it, you haven't watched the movie in a while). That movie had the combo of really good script AND excessive, humorous gore, was entertaining on many levels. You replace the gore with what I'm sure are sure-to-annoy-at-least-me excessive CGI, drop 90% of the f-bombs, you give me absolutely no reason to watch it. I'll stay home and watch the Rob Bottin-designed RoboCop with Red Foreman dropping f-bombs like it's Dresden and dude splattering on the windshield like he's a watermelon, thanks.

B) If a movie stars anyone associated even remotely with The Killing, that movie should be immediately ignored.

Out of my recentish (08-13) seen-so-fers, it's up there with Inglourious Basterds as the best movie over that time span, IMO.

My expectations were "over-hyped foreign movie," but I was pretty blown away.

It's essentially a literal interpretation of The Book of Revelations, and you're worried about plot holes ? :hide:

I couldn't tell if the film was a self parody of Hollywood dooshiness, or a big middle finger to everyone outside of the industry.

Lazy, sloppy, too full of himself, whatever it was, Django was a mess. Such a disappointment.

Along the same lines and upon first glance, I, Frankenstein looks to be one of the worst movies ever made. When I watch these trailers I have to remind myself that someone actually wrote this shit down. There were meetings had about these steaming piles.

My expectations were "over-hyped foreign movie," but I was pretty blown away.


Basterds is what Django should have been, had Tarantino not gotten lazy, IMHO.


Lazy, sloppy, too full of himself, whatever it was, Django was a mess. Such a disappointment.


Huh, and there I thought I was the only one that was disappointed by Django (particularly the second half and especially the end).

Basterds had a few GREAT scenes, and the re-writing of history was fun too (giving Hitler the Lincoln treatment).

So far for me, Inglourious Basterds gets better & better with each watching. I think it might be his 2nd best after Pulp Fiction.

Django was a POS. A non-exhaustive list of reasons why:

-The material was clearly just not within QT's range. Hotboxes + plantation owner sisters cartoonishly flying backwards after being shot = muddled vision, to say the least. In interviews, it sounded like he had some trouble dealing with some of the serious aspects of the material, and it showed.
-There's a MF'ing Jim Croce song sharing the same movie with a MF'ing Rick Ross song for F's sake. When QT of all people starts missing on music...
-The Ooooooh Django Reachin' For His Gun Cuz He's Bout to Lose It! scenes. Not much dramatic effect when no one believes he's going to do anything.
-The completely idiotic, I don't know how else to end this movie ending, brought on by a completely idiotic, I don't know how else to get there plot turn.
-It was both too long & too short at the same time. Too long, because 2hrs 45mins is far too long for a movie that sucks. Too short, because he tried to do two movies in one (western buddy bonding movie in the first half, revenge flick in the second), and each of them needed more time to be done right.
-The return of Quentin Tarantino the shitty actor.

The second Leo got shot, the movie fell off a cliff. The scene where he convinces the cowboys to let him out of the cage and give him a gun was Michael Bay bad.

I enjoyed Django. But I do feel like it should have ended in the first shootout in Candieland. The scene with the LeQuint mining guys was just padding to get John Jarret, Michael Parks and Tarantino some screen time..

I did enjoy the sound track and the interaction bewteen Waltz and Foxx.

I haven't seen Django yet. I'm surprised by the reaction here. I thought it was pretty well received and people liked it.

Also confused as to why you can't have Jim Croce and Rick Ross songs in the same movie.

Django was good. F da haters. It's no more ridiculous that any of the Kill Bills. And Leo and Waltz are excellent in it.

I really enjoyed the Kill Bills. I'll have to make it a point to see Django soon. I'd be very surprised if I didn't like it.

Django is better than 12 years a slave, that's for sure. I just watched "Her". Blew me away. I'll be thinking about that movie for a long time.

Check out "Rush". Not gonna win anything but it's a very good movie. American Hustle is excellent, but mostly because J Law steals it and makes you gawk at her. Gravity is a masterpiece, screw the haters. And Wolf is the most entertaining movie I've seen in a long time.

If I went with best, I'd say Her...most liked, Wolf...most ingenious, Gravity. All three are masterpieces in my mind. A great year for movies.

The blood FX in Django are one of my biggest gripes, it's like a blood/snot hybrid. Planet Terrorish.... which was awful.

Yes, Planet Terror was awful. Even in the Grindhouse prism it sucked.

Silver Linings Playbook was also well received and it too had an ending that sucked balls.

I can think of hundreds of movies that were well received that I thought were crap. Rotten tomatoes ratings are often a good way to identify which movies suck, but not always which you'll like.

That's one problem. Waltz is brilliant in it. To the point that I really don't care about Foxx/Django.

Then there's the am I a Western or Southern Plantation Story issue.

How is this an issue? The second isn't even a genre. Like you can't have plantations be part of a western.
