I really wanted to see Mudd, I'm dieing to see Fruitvale Station, and Pacific Rim is something I really want to see even though the summer action flick is not really the type of thing I crave. But I love Del Torro, and it just looks better than most of that type of fair. In fact, I really want to see Elysium as well, mostly because of how much I liked District 9. And WWZ interested me a little just because I love the source material, but I didn't think it looked very good.

I'll be back at it soon. In the meantime I've signed up for and really gotten into Netflix. I've caught a ton of documentaries. Watched a lot of stuff that I had some interest in seeing but not enough to make sure I got out to see it. Like Super 8 which I just watched last weekend, and thought it was great. A great job setting the era. The music was pitch perfect. The costumes and sets, cars and decor and the stuff, was all excellent without being over the top. It reminded me a bit of The Goonies because of the group of kids on an adventure. It had a bit of a scare to it like the Goonies did. I felt more of that than the ET influence I had heard about. There were certainly a couple issues. The shooting of the train crash was kind of a mess. The monster was a lot better when you couldn't see him than he was in the final act when he started getting shown more on screen. But all in all a reall cool movie that would be perfect for kids in the 8-12 range.
Here you go buddy, this is a website I personally use. Its safe, free and there are updates almost every few hours with new stuff. Its a good group of people, and they work hard to find the best and latest versions of movies, and they update the link. Chances are every movie you would want to see is on this website, the longer you wait, the better chance a DVD or Blueray rip version will appear. I've had broken bones before, so I know what its like to not go out and see a movie you really want to see. With this website, now you don't have to leave your computer chair. I recommend using only PutLocker or Shochshare links to movies, they are the easiest websites to navigate, and these don't require any intrusive downloads. As long as you have a flash player installed, you're pretty much already setup.

Only catch is you have to register, but its super easy and free. If you have any questions on how to navigate through the forums, or finding a movie link, send me a PM :) . Once you figure out how everything works, you may never pay for a movie again. Get well soon.

EDIT: Or if its easier on you, just tell me what movie(s) you want to watch, Ill PM you a direct link

not a movie, but watched all seasons of the uk show 'the hour'. Thought it would suck but it was actually pretty good. Has mcnulty from the wire in it and it's about a tv show in the 50's and spies and stuff.

anybody else know wtf its about?

It's part thematic meditation on the weirdness of Hollywood and part depiction of surreal nightmare the aspiring actress played by Naomi Watts has as she's dying from suicide. It's as if her brain is exploding with the random memories on your screen. Been a long time since I've seen it, so I can't remember everything it's about.

He's proven he can make great straightforward, linear films with "The Elephant Man" and "The Straight Story". His abstract works have great mood, symbolism and pictorial sensibility too.

I watched 3 documentaries over the weekend. Dirty Wars, A band called Death, and The Crash Reel. I'd give them all an 8 out of 10 and a must watch sticker. Especially Dirty Wars, that was crazy as F!

9.2/10

Before Midnight (2013)

Figuring the second was so great, why not risk it and watch the third installment. Dialogue was great as usual, very intense, but a starkly different tone than the other two.

Rough stuff, but captivating and truthful. I liked the movie, but not nearly as much as the others. It didn't hit the heights of the other two, but it was trying to do something different.

7.7/10



Huge fan of the series, Before Sunset is my favorite. First one came out when I was in high school and had an impact on me, had no idea they ever planned to do another and was floored by the second one when it came out. I hear you on the most recent one, it was fantastic but it definitely soiled some of the romance of the first two with some harsh realities of relationships. Still just painfully brilliant though. They've mastered the ability to turn 2 hours of conversation into a can't-miss series. I hope they make these movies every 10 years as long as the actors are alive, it'll never get old to me. Linklater is the man, he's got this "untitled 12 year project" (google it) that he's working on where he's had these two kids (his daughter and another kid) and filmed them for a couple weeks every year for 12 years and the story is about them in this time so they just started principle photography on the bulk of the story. Needless to say my interest is piqued.

My friend did a lot of the editing on Blue Valentine, and even more on The Place Beyond the Pines. I'm sure I'm not completely unbiased because of it, but I loved both of those movies. It's weird to me that Derek Cianfrance directed both of those as one is such a stark character study, while Pines is a one after the other linear plot driven story, albeit a really strange plot. I actually really loved Pines, killer act breaks. Was really shocked in the theatre more than once watching that one.

I've never seen, nor had any real interest in seeing, any of the Sunset / Sunrise movies. It sounds like I should.

I liked Elephant Man and Blue Velvet. Never saw The Straight Story. I straight up hated Mulholland Dr, Eraserhead, and Inland Empire. Never finished Dune.

I don't remember enjoying Inland Empire much. That was a misfire for him. Never seen Eraserhead or Dune.

Wild at Heart is a fun, entertaining flick and Twin Peaks was of course a good show.

But, I don't know how anyone could not like Mulholland Drive on any level though. Even a lot of people who are utterly confused by it come back to it multiple times to try and figure it out. It's got such a great hypnotic and watchable quality to it, and it's a compilation of some really interesting scenes that are well-played.. especially by Naomi Watts who was robbed of an Oscar nomination that year.
