Oh, I think you told me about it a while ago and I never signed up on it. Thanks.

Spacey doesn't really have much of a role in that movie. It's Sam Rockwell's baby. Spacey plays a voice role, rather convincingly, too. I was thinking during the second viewing of that movie that he sounds nothing like HAL 9000, which is what everyone would compare him to. If I were actually on a spacecraft and had a machine that interacted with me, I would want Spacey's voice to be used with it. It's just. . . relaxing.

State Of Play. 6.5/10.

Russell Crowe, Rachel McAdams, Ben Affleck, directed by Kevin Macdonald (Last King Of Scotland fame). It just screams let's write some current headlines into a screenplay and throw in some mercenary conspiracy stuff. Affleck's a congressman and his mistress (research ass't) gets assassinated by Blackwater (or Pointcorp, whatever they veiled it as in the flick) because she's about to uncover some zillion dollar contracts brought about by collusion etc etc. Crowe's the old school reporter, McAdams, who was better than I thought possible for her but still pretty shitty, is the new school protege he's showing the ropes during their reporting of the story.

It's worthwhile, maybe even decent, I've got absolutely no complaints about the direction, I don't think Macdonald could've done anymore with what he was given. I really liked Helen Mirren (surprise) as the head editor of the paper Crowe and McAdams worked for and the little subplot of her trying to push for copy and sales over research and story, I wish it'd been a bigger part, but I understand why it wasn't. Just felt really opportunistic and slapped together to me.

Jason Bateman's got a bit part as a slick haired scumbag informant though. That's where the extra half point came from.

So basically this movie is about a slightly retarded/sub-par intelligent man, who dresses up as a superhero to fight all that is unjust in the world. His arsenal of weapons includes a trench club, some marbles and wasps. To top all this off, this character is played by Woody Harrelson.

Do i really need to say more to get you to watch it?

8/10- highly, highly entertaining.

Just a romantic comedy but it has some originality and quirkiness that I really liked. It was something that I actually enjoyed and surprisingly kept my attention the whole movie, which is rare for a romantic comedy. This might have something to do with Jeremy Piven being in the movie he is ****ing awesome. I made a thread about this movie last weekend too but thats only because I was drunk as shit lol. I'll give it a 7.3 out of 10.

No. It's still pretty good though, and is probably a much more realistic take on what would happen if you actually tried to be a superhero(i.e. you'd get your ass kicked a bunch).

Peacock

Trailer

What a bizarre movie. This is about a mentally unstable guy with multiple personalties(his "other" being his wife) living out his delusion peacefully in a small town, until one day a train derails into his back yard, making him the focal point of the town, and subsequently causing everyone to notice the "wife" they never knew he had. Even though it starts off slow(really picks up about halfway through, though), it's always interesting to see the dynamics between his two personalities in interacting with the local populace. Cillian Murphy does a great job in this. Bill Pullman and Josh Lucas are also in it.

Overall it's a pretty strong film with a great performance by Murphy, though I did wonder why the towns people didn't at any point remark on how he and his "wife" looked similar.

7.3/10

'Moon' was sooo good. I loved Rockwell's performance and the soundtrack was impressive. Also, I always have respect for a film that has limited funding but that makes up for it with pure creativity.

Rockwell has been one of my favorites since he did a quest spot on Stella (comedy show with Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Davod Wain).

You should check out Gentlemen Broncos. It just came out on dvd and Rockwell plays this fictional sci-fi character Bronco. It's incredibly hilarious. He's not the main character FYI, maybe 15 minutes of screen time throughout... Still a very funny movie in my opinion.

^^^I personally thought Gentleman Broncos was crap. One of the worst movies I've actually watched all the way through. It's obvious to me at this point that Napoleon Dynamite was just a flash in the pan.
