    If you notice the time stamp, my edit was published at exactly the same time you published your response. Given the amount of images included and the fact that I was posting them here and on Superfuture - one can logically deduce I decided to edit my original post before I saw your response.

    Watched the first six of Kieslowski's Decologue . I originally saw the extended film-length versions of no. 5 (A short film About Killing) and no.6 (A Short Film About Love) in the cinema but the shorter 60 minute version loses little. I found the it has lost none of its ability to disturb: the shocking reality of the brutality of state execution. There was no Hollywoodisation of someone being hanged in 1980s Poland. The cinematography amplifies the claustrophobia. The other episodes are all wonderful too. Such concision and amazing imagery.

    Don't know if this has already been discussed, but I just watched Bad Grandpa the other night... very strange flic... it's really awkward at times yet super funny... it's a total Johnny Knoxville ego trip, but I have to admit, he had some good ideas, and they way it was done was pretty entertaining, and in the end, actually endearing. I feel like comedies are getting more and more unconventional, and this is one example.

    I loved Ba Grandpa. I'm a fan of films like Borat, Dictator, etc, plus Farelli bros stuff.

    Road House again. But, I just met and got Marshall Teague's autograph on a picture of him as Jimmy fighting Swayze at a Con here in Galveston, so I was inspired to re-watch.

    Didn't notice Patricia Tallman had a cameo on Road House either (DROOL). Also, I got her autograph at the Con too, was a bit star struck to meet Barbara from the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead :)

    edit: Kinda funny....as big a GoT fan I am, I was completely uninterested in meeting any of the cast there except for Hodor, with whom I had a picture taken.

    Rewatched this yesterday evening:

    Anthony Hopkins' and Emma Thompson's scenes are beautiful to watch. For a film that has such few events in it, I still find it quite captivating. In some ways I also admire the professionalism of the Mr. Stevens character greatly.

    Wolf of wall street was great.

    For those who have read the book... How true is the boat scene?

    It's probably been posted here before, and I've watched this movie more than once over the years, but highly recommend Hustle and Flow: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0410097/

    Great tale of redemption.

    I don't remember it being like that at all really. But its honestly tough to remember there is so many ridiculous moments in both the book and movie. The movie fused like 4 characters into johnna hills role. I honestly dont remember him being on the boat during the boat scene.

    The last 1/3 of the movie is drastically different then the book and it felt too rushed imo.

    Thanks, that's the one. Ended up being pretty boring.

    Saw Lone Survivor. Was pretty good, but was exactly how one review I read put it: Passion of the Christ for service members. Was also nice knowing and understanding the villagers/Talibs' speak.

    Damon is getting preachier and preachier. He needs to do another Borne movie.
