I was a huge MV fan when I was a kid and expected to love the movie. It was just terrible. Ugh.

I'm late to the party, but I just saw this flick yesterday and I was floored to hear two Mogwai tracks on the score. WTF!? Not just in the background, but full-blown non-diegetic toonage--------wow. It closed the picture.

Yeah, I was really surprised to see Mogwai on the soundtrack. Blue Foundation, too. Really, really weird, but I'm not complaining. Still haven't seen the movie, but at least some of the music is excellent.

Phil Collins was night skiing at Boreal in the mid-1980s.

The movie exceeded my low expectations; I was expecting something along the lines of the Starsky and Hutch remake. Way off. A contemplative blockbuster--------long takes of fast boats on the water at night. Adopts some of the Pacino Scarface palette.

It was a bore in the 80's. My question: does this movie officially announce the return of the 80's to the fashion media? I need to know now, so I can get started on my mullet and begin rolling up my sportcoat sleeves.

The 80s are so last year, nineties nostalgia is creeping in. Dry clean your flannel shirts. Chain your wallet. Revive your soul patch. And grow your hair (but never wash or comb it).

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority.

In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

ha ahha. Why don't you get a god damned job Al?

Christ, that was the theme song from my junior prom in high school.

I finally saw it and liked it overall. The headshots and splatter patterns were awesome!

I liked Yaro's character :P

I was fond of it, I didn't find Li's character too convicing, and certainly it wasn't oscar material, but you got what was advertised, a sleek thriller with good cinematography and nice action scenes.

That movie was so horrible. It was so drawn out and boring I thought it was 3 and a half hours long. I actually fell asleep for 15 minutes. I would rather get tea bagged in the laundry room of a prision then see it again.
