Repo Man is still pretty good after almost thirty years
Ever been to Utah? Ra-di-a-tion. Yes, indeed. You hear the most outrageous lies about it. Half-baked goggle-box do-gooders telling everybody it's bad for you. Pernicious nonsense. Everybody could stand a hundred chest X-rays a year. They ought to have them, too.
Woke up in the middle of the night and was kept up by Bulworth.
"We've got people in this country that can't even buy a meal! Ask a brother who's been downsized if he's gettin' any deal. Or a white boy bustin' ass till they put him in his grave, he ain't gotta be a black boy to be livin' like a slave."
I didn't watch it, and have never seen it, but I was listening to some old Redman and he mentioned Jacob's Ladder so I googled it and read all about it.
Man, that movie sucked. Why would anyone want to watch that?
Zero Dark Thirty-- it would have been so much better if they had cut out 45 minutes and had it directed by Michael Bay. Too much of the first 2 hours spent in offices and board rooms and then all of the action scenes were pitch black. Yeah, realism but makes for annoying movie. It was like the worst episode of Homeland ever.
Argo was a great, tense thriller.
This may be taboo but I was pleasantly surprised by Battleship. Going into it I was expecting it to be really bad but it kept me entertained for a couple hours
End of Watch - good
Sinister - good
just wrapped up American Reunion. Very few laughs (esp compared to the others) but mah Gawd, those tabes on the girl next door. Redic.
Wedding crashers was on tonight. I'm so in love with Rachel McAdams
I understand that it is a different movie and trying to make it hard to watch and enjoy. And I was possibly ok with it up until she floated out to the Brothel Boat and had the encounter with her mom... But the despair to me was way over the top and unrealistic, as was the movie. And it was well received in Hollywood, but let's not go overboard it didn't walk away with any awards.... I wanted to like it and it was certainly thought provoking, but I missed, what others enjoyed that's for sure

yea he really was good. of the best picture noms, i only saw argo and beasts, and with that i think beasts should have won hands down.
and, hogie, jakob's ladder was terrible. that's all i remember of it.
What happened to her career? What was the last thing she was in?
But yeah I don't even recognize half these post-WC movies.
I heard she is crazy.
End of Watch - Awesome movie, although I thought it was a little slow in the beginning. I really enjoyed it though and thought the first person camera was pretty cool. Don't want to include any spoilers but I was kinda disappointed with how it ended, I thought they could have wrapped it up better.
Argo - Another great movie. Don't think it should have won Best Picture, but still a great flick and worthy of the nomination. Knowing what happens in the end kinda sucks though.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - I haven't seen this movie mentioned in here and wasn't expecting much but I thought it was a really good moive. My low expectations and love for Emma Watson might have skewed my perception a bit though. It's definitely worth a watch if your bored.
Moonrise Kingdom and Beasts of the Southern Wild are next up in the queue. Life of Pi and Zero Dark Thirty once they are available are amazon.
the original movie based off the novel, manhunter, was much better imo.

3 Days of the Condor on HDNet movie channel now. So good.
Juan of the Dead - really liked it despite having to deal with subtitles. The satirical edge of the movie really makes it enjoyable.
Spider man. Well reviewed but I didn't like it. Shit, I think I am getting old.
I actually liked this, probably because I had zero expectations. If you think is it going to be god awful it is much Better Than that. I laughed out loud a bunch.
Have you watched "Manhunter" recently? I ask because I loved it when I watched it originally 20 some years ago, but I tried watching it recently and thought it didn't age well at all. It was like an extended Miami Vice episode.
Watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower last night - really great film for anyone whose high school experience wasn't perfect. It's pretty millennial'ish, but a lot more pure than the 20-something millennial stuff (e.g. Girls), and the acting is great. If you don't mind non-conformist teenagers, I'd recommend this film to anyone.
Be careful. There are 2 movies called "red"
You want the one with bruce Willis, which is the one I believe cdeac is referencing here.

Texas Killing Fields - a solid, entertaining, real Texas noir detective film. Has the guy who plays Al Capone from Boardwalk Empire, Sam Worthington from Terminator 4, a couple of vaguely familiar female actresses. It has a kind of Fargo, No Country, even Blood Simple vibe to it, but it is NOT a Coen film (produced by Michael Mann from Miami Vice.)
Gets a 'Recommend.' And in a stunning turnabout, it has a song by Mazzy Star that ISN'T 'Fade Into You.'

Right there with ya
Couldn't t sleep so watched Ravenous again last night. Hard to describe with a bizarre score, but one of my favorites. Not really a horror flick, in fact I have no clue how to categorize it. Highly recommended though.
I like Red Dragon more than Manhunter.
