    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes this is a music video so I guess it's not what's generally discussed here, but Shia LaBeouf is an actor that people have strong opinions about, so I figured I'd post it

    I'm resurrecting this to ask for film noir recs (loosely defined but decidedly pre-Chinatown).

    I have seen and enjoyed (possibly missing some here):

    Double Indemnity
    Detour
    The Big Sleep
    The Maltese Falcon
    Le Jour Se Leve & The Long Night
    This Gun For Hire
    Lady in the Lake
    Out of the Past
    Kiss Me Deadly
    The Killing
    The Set-Up
    Shadow of a Doubt
    Notorious
    Strangers on a Train
    The Third Man

    I've got some more on the docket:

    Sunset Boulevard
    Murder, My Sweet
    Shoot the Piano Player
    The Wrong Man
    Stranger on the Third Floor
    D.O.A.
    Detective Story
    Gun Crazy
    The Big Heat
    In a Lonely Place
    Night and the City
    The Asphalt Jungle
    The Desperate Hours
    Touch of Evil (I may have seen this but all I remember now is the opening shot with the bomb in the trunk)


    Does anyone have a recommendation that isn't above anywhere?

    I wake up screaming, act of violence, the phenix city story. Your list is pretty good, but you need to take it up a notch.

    If anyone enjoys Hal Hartley, Ned Rifle is a decent conclusion to the trilogy. Really dislike Aubrey Plaza though but everyone else was great as always, wish there was more of Parker Posey.

    Saw Interstellar maybe three weeks ago; hadn't read anything about it and was expecting sci-fi. I thought it was 99% garbage as others have stated, so I won't bother with the criticism, but the remaining 1% fucked me up so hard I'm still reeling. Not entirely sure why, but I'm susceptible to the melodrama - and, I think, to polished cliché in general. I thought McConaughey was really, really good - and that he and Chastain did well together. The last movie I saw with McCaughneshirtless was a rom-com on an airplane maybe 8 years ago, so I was not expecting that (didn't even know he was in the film; for some reason I thought it was about George Clooney and aliens), and I don't think I've ever even seen Chastain before. I dunno. I don't watch a lot of movies. Anyway I wouldn't call it good but I thought it was...effective?

    I really liked Inherent Vice. It doesn't make much sense (slightly less sense than the book) but that doesn't really matter.

    Another great movie from Tommy Lee Jones that, much like his The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, is destined to be criminally underseen in the US. Catch this in theaters while you still can.

    I recently saw American Sniper, man that movie was intense. Too graphic and violent for my taste that it put me in a low mood after watching it. I sneaked in to see Paddington Bear since I didn't pay $16 to feel bad plus I get to have a refill of my popcorn and soda :embar:

    Rewatching episodes of Louie with David Lynch. If there isn't a good documentary on DL I hope someone will make one soon.

    Top 3 OVERRATED movies of all time. This is barely a 2 star flick. I love the old school movies....but this just sucks! Fact!

    Anyone got any old kung fu movie recommendations that aren't from Shaw Bros or Golden Harvest? Shot in the dark, but I'll fire it off anyway.

    You guys come across the Alien concept art that Neil Blomkap commissioned awhile back? Looks badass and I really, really hope he directs a badly needed Alien sequel to finish out Ripley's arc. Seems highly possible it could happen, especially since Sigourney Weaver stars in his newest movie Chappie. I have a complete boner for this. Prometheus was a little meh and i'm far less excited about aPrometheus 2. An Alien 5 movie with Ripley would kick ass

    Just watched this. Brilliant documentary re Edward Snowden told pretty much told as it happened. Very much worth a look. I caught it on HBO.
