      missed it. whoops!

  2. Very few films truly have impact. American Sniper is having a frickin' IMPACT. Crazy. Rightly or wrongly.

      Seeing it tonight because that's what a friend wants to see. I hope to judge it as just a movie, not a political Rorshach test.

      The success of American Sniper will make it easier for everyone to sell more serious fare. And not just AS - Fury, Unbroken, The Imitation Game... there's an appetite out there for stories about heroes, all sorts of heroes, who don't necessarily have superpowers.

      Hope that's true, Scott. Certainly seems to be a trend of old-style "adult" films now that gives me hope. As for AS, it's not perfect, not even a great film, but it's pretty well made (fake baby aside). The combat scenes are very effective and Cooper & Miller do excellent work. And if I have mixed feelings...well, films SHOULD start arguments and debates.

  3. I'm not always the biggest Bradley Cooper fan, but he was terrific in American Sniper.

      The trailers make it look excellent, why is it so bad? I'm a Leftie, but I have to say the reactions to this movie seem to be very politically motivated. Can't watch anything on a military subject without that polarization now.

      Re: Sienna Miller, also Foxcatcher. So underutilized.

      Agreed. He was fantastic. Aside from one's stance on the war in general, the film was devoid of any political narrative. Thought the missions/action felt a bit too much like a video game, but all-in-all I thought it was well done.

  4. That's how you end a series, Serial. Drop the mic.

      I enjoyed the series, but I definitely did not think the final episode was drop the mic worthy.

  5. I am almost positive that Copland is, like, almost a brillant revelatory film with great characters. And then, somehow, it isn't. Thoughts?

  6. Does anyone read screenplays on a six-inch Kindle? Trying to help my eyes with the reduced light. How is it? Worth the money?

      Yes, I use Briss to crop and then turn it sideways to read. I wouldn't buy a regular kindle to read script, though. I mainly use it for books.

      Interesting. Do you see the full page on the six-inch?

    4. joe_gillis

      joe_gillis

      No, nowhere near a full page but it's surprisingly not much of a problem. I was thinking about buying a tablet to read scripts before trying with the Kindle and although not as good it meets my needs.

  7. The next great TV show everyone will be talking about: HBO's CRIME. You didn't hear it from me. :)

      Doesn't surprise me. Richard Price is a brilliant writer.

  8. Anyone have a bead on In the Deep? Sounds like such a great and educational read.

  9. Moonfall! Stat. Everyone: let's get this one.

      They should broadcast it as a one-off anyway. In memory of.. Hate to think that work is wasted.

      Hopefully it will leak like other pilots in the past.
