1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Mildly disappointing for a Stewart/Hitchcock film. Or maybe I'm giving it more credit than it deserves because Stewart/Hitchcock have made some amazing films together. Anyways nice film, watch it but not before watching vertigo and rear window

    Reading a little further, it was a remake of of a 1930s Peter Lorre version? Hmmm, that sounds delightful

    I'm not the best audience for sci-fi at the best of times but thought I'd give it a try as everyone's been raving about it. Gave up after an hour and de-loused the dog. Nice images at times.

    It was a surprise favorite for me. I expected to hate the movie and I truely wasn't really a fan of Phoenix's character as a mewly and somewhat pathetic person, but the movie was so well done that I couldn't help but love it.

    It's not easy being in every scene and acting against an off-camera voice. I think Samantha Morton was giving him good material to work with and they had the luxury of making a lot of dialogue changes in post when Scar Jo came in, but it really was a powerful and understated performance. Best I've seen from an actor since John Hawkes in Winter's Bone.

    Her crept over my head like a cowl and kept me enthralled for 90 minutes. Not a lot of movies do that for me.

    I still have yet to see Winter's Bone. My dad talks about it regularly as being one of his recent favorites.

    Yup. Only a fool wouldn't admire the skill to pull that off too.

    ^^ Very good movie. You see why J Lawrence is a star and why John Hawkes is underappreciated. Good double feature with Bue Ruin.

    That would be like drinking a cup of cold sick, and then drinking 3 litres of leper's cum to clean your palate.

    Comparing it to Rear Window and Vertigo is unfair because they are masterpieces.

    i agree with your statement but that would be true 99.99% of the time. im simply making the comparison based strictly on the stewart/hitchcock films and im limited to just 4 films. 2 of which are incredible, 1 is very good, the other, meh

    i should have been more clear in my OP
