There is a lot more to the movie industry than Hollywood and the awards they give out to themselves.

There should be a category for most delightful movie of the year. That honor would go to Robot and Frank this year.

Did nobody else notice that both Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner had transient, horrible accents in American Hustle? Even Bale's bat voice-ish New Yorsey hodgepodge was better -- and at least consistent. Considering Lawrence is up yet again for an Oscar (even after winning one last year for that trash Silver Linings Playbook), is the Academy just riding her popularity or are its members really so incompetent that they don't notice she's an actress that can't even deliver lines correctly on film?

I've never been able to take Jeremy Renner seriously. Is he Harvey Weinstein's cousin or something?

why, what's your favorite* movie?


*or least disliked

Really hard to say because 'favorite movie' isn't one that I'm always going to put on when I decide to rewatch a movie. I think out of all the great entertaining movies out there, Network probably has the most take-away -- it's about as close as anyone working with film has ever come to Shakespeare-level insight and eloquence. It's first and foremost entertaining, simultaneously sincere and ridiculous, and one viewing simply isn't sufficient nor exhaustive. It's possibly the only movie I've ever seen that's rich enough to be seen differently with repeat viewings, which is rather remarkable for something on a recorded medium.

That scene is a masterwork of writing, directing and acting. As is this:

May be first 1h:30min , then it drags, stumbles & descends into grotesque with ridiculously improbable ending.

I'd suggest Spagetti Westerns could be re-watched ad infinitum.

Watched Her today. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with how funny it was. Did not really see it being THAT funny. My entire theatre was giggling like mad which made it that much better.
post #8429 of 10320
I thought Her was funny too, but in a regrettable way that was a distraction from what otherwise didn't need to be a funny movie at all. The fact that there was crude humor to be found in the simulator from the audience's perspective kind of distorted the argument re: the simulator's viability, and made her an object of sentiment more than she should have been. I think the only appropriate use would have been to strictly use the humor that Joaquin found in her responses so the audience was as synchronized as possible to his responses to her. I remember watching Persona awhile back and finding the psychology of the relationship much more engaging because you aren't burdened with the director's need to create secondary sources of entertainment to appease an audience. Her still felt like a movie where the characters didn't have autonomy to the content of their interaction, which is ultimately kind of a big deal for me. It was fun though, and the depiction of the future was refreshingly modest.

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest Extended Version (Swedish with English subtitles). So. Freaking. Good. I think the trilogy might be one of my all time favorites.
