That film has a lot of problems.

I loved it when I first saw it, but I watched it again a few times after that and it just wasn't that good. Don't get me wrong, I like it. It's a fun superhero film, but it's hardly the masterpiece people hold it up as.
Courtney Barnett, Waxahatchee, and American Football. Probably Boris as well.

Oldboy - Directed by Spike Lee, starring Sam L and Josh Brolin.

I like the original a fair bit. Assuming they keep the original story, knowing the twist makes me a little less excited, but I'm still keen to see what they do. I quite like Brolin.

Pacific Rim is a Japanese Kaiju film on steroids. Unfortunately it shares the same bad acting and terrible attempts at sentiment and emotion.
Ron Perlman was a highlight and Charlie Day was good as well. I enjoyed it but I also enjoy Gamera.

I read a good article about that Canyons movie. The movie will be a pile of shit though.

From the things I've read, Canyons IS a porn movie with Deen and Lohan.

I've read nothing but terrible things about Canyons. The constant development struggles it had are pretty interesting though.

Furnace has a cast so good it makes me afraid it will be shit.

Pacific Rim is the most fun I've had in a movie since the Avengers. I had a stupid grin on my face the whole time and nearly broke Mrs BC's hand squeezing it with excitement.

Despite the atrocious Aussie accents it was fun. If you were expecting a cinematic masterpiece then I can see why you would be disappointed.

I thought visually it was amazing, probably the best in terms of a blockbuster I've ever seen, probably going to re-see this weekend at the IMAX.

Just watched spring breakers, what a fucking luscious film, it was like a Refn film mashed with Gus Van Sant, I fucking loved it, my MOTY for now (until I see Only God Forgives). I was expecting some sort of off the wall art film by most peoples descriptions but what I got was a beautifully shot film with an interesting story.

spring breakers seem to dance a fine line of genius and utter shit... it could have gone so wrong but ended up so awesome, i fucken loved it, probably one of the best soundscapes i've heard since drive... then there's James Franco.

I'm so keen for Only God Forgives....

Springbreakers was shit. The repetition of so many lines over and over and over and over got old really quick.

I still have to see Spring Breakers. I thought Gummo was boring when I watched it, but I like it in retrospect. Trash Humpers was terrible. I haven't seen anything else by Harmony Korine.

I can't imagine what a non-hetero would have to be interested in with this film, except perhaps this.



Really not my type, though.

I thought Pacific Rim was good, flawed but good. Though I was surprised by how high it's rating is on Rotten tomatoes. I could not stand the asian bird, turrible just turrible.

I don't understand why you all can't understand the nationalities, they were all caricatures of themselves, they were turned up to 11 to camp up the film, I heard from a Russian friend everyone was laughing at the Russian crew, jesus do we need to be so precious? The Asian bird is going to go down so well in Japan. Huge even.
