    Better than i remembered. While it didn't transport me to '71 as as successfully as Munich did to '72 or Argo did to '79, it's definitely one of Statham's best movies (apart from Collateral - don't even remeber him in that? - it's also his highest rated movie on RT). With a crazy story inspired by real events.

    Do not own, but I liked that film a lot. British crime worlds, fictional or not, are always fascinating to me.

    Nah, 3 and 4 are the ones to watch, and 4 only for the hilariously over the top Regan era Cold War vibe.

    Clubber Lang is the goddam truth.

    3 was very good. Mr T in his prime.
    2 is watchable just for the followup. Never saw 4 in it's entirety.
    The rest........:eh:

    A long bus ride sounds like the opportunity for Kenneth Lonnergan's Margaret -- but go for the extended version if you can find it. From the playwright/director of You Can Count on Me, it's a weighty and moving and piece featuring many familiar, though younger-looking faces, as its release was delayed by several years. It's a shame, too, because had things gone as planned, the film would have swept the floor during award season, and maybe we'd be seeing more from this director.

    If you missed You Can Count on Me, I'd see that, too. Amazing film.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

    Wasn't feeling it, this is what happens when white people go unchecked. Too kitschy and I didn't like the girl Scott was fighting over. Needed to watch Boyz in the Hood and Juice as a palette cleanser.

    :facepalm:

    Wasn't planning on seeing this and I should've stuck to the plan. Scarlett worked pretty hard, but Morgan Freeman just looked bored. Shockingly has a 66% rating on RT.

    I liked Besson's first five films (Subway, The Big Blue, La Femme Nikita, Léon and The Fifth Element) but everything after that's been rather bad...

    Just watched Fracture and Burn After Reading, later will be rewatching Midnight in Paris... It's a nice lazy day with a storm on the horizon.

    No idea why people bag on Nic Cage. When he's on he's untouchable.

    Definitely one of his best. I also liked him in The Weather Man and Lord of War.

    This is a tremendous miniseries. At first Cumberbatch's performance seemed to have too much scenery-chewing but it grew on me.

    Rebecca Hall steals the show.
