Watched "Fargo" again, for like the umpteenth time. I love it. Frances Mcdormand´s character is amazing.

I finally saw Skyfall. A very different Bond movie to all others and quite well done.

finished a scanner darkly. was going to hate it, but it redeemed itself in the final minutes. weird ass movie, but the payoff made it worth sitting through all the weirdness for me.

Paolo Passolini's Salo, Decameron, Teorema, and Accattone.

 

Everyone should watch Salo. Seriously amazing...........but read a little bit on it first. The best stuff I've seen on it was from artforum.

 

And Being John Malkovich was on Sundance yesterday and I watched that jawn. Charlie Sheen made a cameo and I was like whoadie. Those are good films for the intellectually and artistically inclined. Not good date night movies, seeing as they're a little weird.

Watching Ice Station Zebra. I'd forgotten how much I liked it. Great cast, Patrick MacGoohan at his smarmiest. They even have an "intermission", totally awesome. Wish fucking Django or Lincoln had an intermission.

OK, just got back from The Hobbit, Imax 3D.

The movie was thoroughly not bad. And I mean that more as a non-indictment than compliment. 3D added nothing to the film, I'm now probably going to avoid 3d from here on out*. It was waaaaay too long. All the jokes fell flat (in fairness, there were only two other people in teh audience). Not encouraging to think there are two more left. This third is going to be awful. Smaug looks BAMF.

A question, maybe lefty can answer this or someone else can. THinking about the third film, is there any chance a studio/director/producer/whomever would scrap such a contract and say you're only doing one more for the sake of rep/artistic quality? There's just no way to think a third would be successful quality or financial-wise.

No one said what their faves of 2012 were (harrumph) but I will give this a shot...what are you looking forward to in 2013?

"A Good Day to Die Hard" (love me some bad action films), GI Joe, Man of Steel, Jurassic Park (*yes I know it will be in 3d but its a film that NEEDS to be seen on a big screen so I'll go see it in theaters), sure there are some others I'm forgetting.

My goal is to watch 100 films this year, I'm at, 8 now, I think. Probably more though.

Is this a joke? You're looking forward to GI Joe? C'mon man. You're embarrassing us.

Hey Peter, I was thinking, maybe we don't need that billion dollars. What do you think?

Spot on post. Mamet, I loved The Spanish Prisoner. Great writing and Steve Martin...

Spot on. You need to be on crack to watch those tv shows.

Easily as good as Inglourious Basterds, way better than the interminable Kill Bill(s), but still not at the exalted level of Pulp or Reservoir.

Good story, very entertaining, great acting, especially by Christoph Waltz. Typical of Tarentino, it has very graphic violence and dark humour. It also has the best depiction of the horrors of slavery I've seen.

Didn't even need an edit at 2:47 minutes!

There were a couple of scenes that were toothy. I didn't like the final scene. 7.5 is about right. Loved that scene with the masks, that was brilliantly executed, I never laugh at stuff like that but it cracked me up.

Did you enjoy the 'angry guy' (Alex Jones) ranting? I certainly did.
