  1. Why the fuck are they remaking THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES? So they can give the hollywood vanilla treatment to one of the greatest movies of the last 20 years? Boo. Just boo.

      One of the most gut-wrenching lines in a flick: ask him to talk to me.

      dramatic version of "plz respond"

  2. Oblong gets the octagon!

  3. NIGHTCRAWLER was fantastic. Gyllenhaal knocks it out of the park. Beautifully shot. Every bit as good as the screenplay. Please support this movie.

      It sticks very closely to the original script. And Gyllenhaal's portrayal of Lou is one for the ages. It's gonna do terrible box office, mainstream audiences won't know what to make of it ("he should've got his just desserts" was one dumb comment i overheard when leaving), but for anyone still interested in original storytelling, edgy characters this movie is for you.

      Such a wonderful script and a great, great part for a leading man.

      Reviews are glowing from Toronto. Weird how that works -- a great script often leads to a great movie.

  4. R.I.P. Robin Williams. Time to watch Good Will Hunting

      Watched DEAD POETS SOCIETY and GOOD MORNING VIETNAM over the past two nights in his honor

      He was also excellent in Insomnia

  5. I'm eleven episodes deep into MASTERS OF SEX and its fantastic. This is filling the BREAKING BAD void just nicely.

      Fellas... Showtime has some really good shows but even if MASTERS OF SEX was the only program on Showtime it would still be worth the price of a subscription. It's that good. Get on that shit.

      Michael Sheen. Enough said.

      Zach, you much have a shitty cable service. I have generic cable and standalone HBO and Showtime (only two premiums I have any interest in watching). $5 a month for each. And I have the HBO Go and Showtime equivalent (whatever that's called).

  6. This guy is the fucking tits. Studios and prodcos take note.

      I saw that doco years ago. He IS a hero... well, to me anyway. :)

      Yeah, I think I have to check it out. That was a brilliant rant.

    3. StringerBell


      That guy should run the WGA. Awesome.

  7. GI JOE 3... Jesus. With tv shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Top Of The Lake... why would anyone bother going to the movies anymore?

      I'm fascinated to see what Vince Gilligan does post BB with his new found clout.

      FYI, I was responding to "why would anyone go to the movies anymore?" For the record I have NOT seen GI Joe, but I will be seeing films like Into Darkness, Superman, etc, on the big screen for sure.

    4. Nic.Lishko


      Mama, Warm Bodies and Movie 43. I've seen only one of those and I would recommend it (warm bodies).

  8. FRANCES HA looks fantastic + getting great reviews. Finally an antidote to all the impending GI JOE/franchise/superhero shit. Baumbach rules!

  9. "America is not a country, it's a business. Now FUCKING pay me." My favorite ending to a movie this year.

      What's the movie?

      Killing Them Softly

      I've seen this last night. So much more than a crime film. Brilliant all around
