Also also, there aren't ANY sympathetic characters in the film. NONE. Everyone's a douchebag, and I don't know if I ever want to spend any more time with these characters again. It's not a moral stance, it's just a personal preference.

It's relentless in its misanthropy and it's part of why I loved it.

The Act of Killing

Probably the best film I've seen in years. Just astonishing.

Don't let the subject matter put you off - this is not a graphic or shocking film, in a visual sense. The horror comes from seeing the non-chalant attitudes of these unrepentant murderers and their ignorance of the significance of the situations they are asking people to reenact with them. When that is then shown back to them, the reactions are across the board amazing. Give it five minutes and it will have you and it will keep changing up until it finishes. An amazing, necessary film.

I also saw Stories We Tell, which uses a much more complex technique to get to much more simple conclusions. It's really good, don't get me wrong, but it didn't blow me away.

RE: Werewolf Bar Mitzvah of Wall Street

The entire thing is largely how Jordan perceives himself as it is, so of course it is going to be as grandiose in its debauchery and try to choke you with the disturbing amounts of mythbuilding surrounding his existence.

Anything shorter than three hours and it wouldn't have felt as vile at its end. You have to take it.

You all have to take it.

having read both of his books, I can say this.

It's Belfort as seen by Scorsese. A lot of the movie is far more damning than anything Belfort ever wrote.

The movie had almost an hour lobbed off of it. I have no issue with the current length. I think if it was any longer and people realized what became of Belfort, there would be theatrical riots.

Heat

That film. That fucking film. And the ending. Such perfection.

Coming to America

Also a classic. Most likely my favorite Eddie Murphy flick, along with The Golden Child. As all classic Eddie Murphy movies, they are much superior in French. His French voice actor is so amazing.

Coming to America might be my favorite comedy. It's right up there with Tombstone on movie I can watch at anytime and make me happy.

Zero Dark Thirty - I just...why the high praise? It was competently made, and Chastain is indeed quite good...but it's at least 45 minutes too long. And that final raid? Ugh. I remember there being a huge discussion about how realistic and tense it was. I hated it. Half of it was pitch black and you can't see ANYTHING, which I understand her reasoning for directing it this way...but it sucks as a viewer.

Perks of Being A Wallflower - Quite liked this. The only thing that bugged me was apparently it took place in 1991 - 1992, but some of the music (which is a huge part of the movie) didn't seem to fit. Like, they freak out over hearing "Heroes" by David Bowie for the first time and then Candlebox playing at a party from an album that didn't come out until 1993. Nitpicky, sure, but for a movie that made such a big display of the music those disconnects stood out.

COMING TO AMERICA is pretty great, but TRADING PLACES is my 'definitive' Eddie Murphy comedy.

And I love ZERO DARK THIRTY. I was absolutely riveted when I saw it in the theater and a recent rewatch on blu ray was just as good.

Prisoners AKA Wolverine vs. Paul Dano

Not bad. Jackman shows some range and Dano is suitably creepy. Definitely made me feel uneasy during some scenes. Jake G was pretty great it in as well.

Not as much fun as Ransom (it lacked having a New Kid in the cast) but the ending was decent.

DRINKING BUDDIES- Olivia Wilde and the guy from New Girl are really good in this. One of those will they/won't they movies that doesn't go to the usual places. It felt very real in some spots, certainly thanks to the way the actors played the awkward/loaded silences.

Good to hear. I was just about to chime in with how much I loved it in the cinema, but that I need to give it a rewatch. I'm waiting for the blu to drop in price and then I'll pick it up. I've a feeling I'm going to end up preferring it to The Hurt Locker, if only cos it has all the tension but also manages to stick the landing, from my recollection.

ZDT got really cheap over the past couple of months. Pretty sure I picked it up for around $8 or so before Christmas.

TOTES. Especially on Jake G. Ransom wins via Wahlbergerization.

Watched the first hour of JACK REACHER while I worked out today. I kinda want to just sit here and watch the rest. It's really entertaining and much better than the trailers led me to believe. Unless this shits the bed in the last hour, I would like a whole series based on this character.

JACK REACHER is awesome, and the last hour delivers on the promise of the first hour in a major way.

And yeah, here's hoping we get a shitload more of these Reacher films.
