    I really liked it. Visually, it wasn't as rich as El Topo or the Holy Mountain, but I think the plot was much better. 8/10.

    Magnificent. And today's viewing was particularly satisfying, courtesy of @Butler's spectacular sound set-up.

    So many good things I could say about this one. Very well done.

    Also finally got around to seeing Gone Girl. I almost turned it off a few minutes into it - the impossibly witty flirting in that first flashback scene was awful shit, but aside from that, and the unsatisfying ending, I enjoyed it. One of my least favorites from Fincher, though.

    7/10. I liked Takashi Mike's other films better. This one had some memorable scenes, but I might've been expecting more surrealism/horror.

    I actually watched it yesterday too. Thought it was good but a little confused as to why people kept telling me I had to see it 2 months ago.

    No Way Out - The first 40 min/hour were almost terrible. Should have been 30min man, it did not need that long of a set up. But the rest of the film, along with the ending and the fantastic 80s hair, clothing and music, were superb.


    Lucky Number Slevin (re-watch) - Loved it just as much as the first time. Real fun flick.

    Cassel is great in these as the French real life gangster Jacques Mesrine.

    40 days 40 nights was a totally under appreciated rom-com. Surprisingly good IMO with a great number of one liners. Made 10 years ago but has aged very well. Another plus filmed in SF, I'm sure lefty is a big fan of this one

    No. Looks like it got great revies - will keep an eye out for it.

    (Of course, of Mathieu Kassovitz's movies, it's the 6% on RT Babylon A.D. they offer on Netflix and not the 100% La Haine.)

    Only a fan of SF-set movies where the city gets destroyed. Surprising number of these.

    40D40N is a fun movie. And it has super hottie Shannyn Sossamon who is usually better than the material she's in. Check out The Rules of Attraction for a good SS movie.

    Bad Santa. Had never seen it before, and it was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Absolutely hilarious.

    I haven't seen this since it came out, but I remember it being hilarious. May get drunk and watch it tonight.

    I made the mistake of blind watching that in theaters... it's in the top 5 worst movies I've ever seen. On the bright side the theater was completely empty so my friends and I got some good laughs in

    Watching a really bad movie like that can be great fun. I remember some friends and I sharing a lot of unintended laughs watching Sliver in a cinema some 20 years ago.

    As for Babylon A.D., I believe I inexplicably owned the DVD at one time. Briefly.

    Neighbors. Was in the mood for something in the 90 min range and silly. It was by no stretch a particularly good movie, but it had a number of true laugh out loud moments. Id say its not a bad watch if you want some asinine humor that will get a good laugh out of you.
