What a fascinating and strange movie. A question for those who have seen it in white:

Where do you think the OS's went?

Anyway, I liked it a lot. Quality stuff.

Escape Plan - 8.5/10

Hunger Games 2 - 7/10 Both movies have been long and boring. They remind me of other movies.

If this movie is that good they should consider releasing it on blu ray at a later date because the amount of pirates oh boy.

Sea World has two unexplained homicides, people who wound up dead in the pool. They are putting this huge animal in this comparatively tiny tank. It's horrible.

When I was small I got to take a tour and meet the killer whale and that thing is ****ed up. It watches you walk around. It's way too alert and way too smart to be locked up in a cage. You kind of got the feeling it was forced to tolerate your presence and if it didn't have to, it would shred you into little pieces.

Wolf of Wall Street: 8/10

Finally saw this a little while ago, been meaning to for a while. Scorsese is one of those directors whose style is so distinctive that you can tell who helmed his films (even other mediums like the pilot of Boardwalk Empire) without having to be told who it was. No different here. He added some new wrinkles visually- some of the shots mirrored his DP's work in 'Hugo' (specifically the moving shot of the trading floor from overhead). Also, voiceover has always been a Scorsese hallmark but he also added different character's thought from in-moment, which was overkill IMO.

This wasn't as tight as Marty's usual work, the editing was very shoddy in several very noticeable scenes, and some scenes were unnecessarily overlong and clearly winged. I usually like seeing directors' cuts and extended versions of film, but I'm glad it was cut down from its original run time. The performances were solid for the most part, a bit hammier than usual for a Scorsese pic (not counting Joe Pesci, but he's so damn good he gets a pass ). Overall, entertaining with some nice comedy bits but not in the realm of Scorsese's classics like Raging Bull, Goodfellas, or even Casino. More in league with the Departed or Gangs of New York, which obviously isn't a bad class to be in.

The Butler - 8/10

Shit almost made me cry. On a day like today, MLK, it's really emotional. I feel for everyone who had to go through with this at that time. Honestly. Black, white, purple, brown. Everyone that felt the presence of evil back when this had occurred. I know a lot about racism, discrimination, I've been educated enough for this to NOT be a shock to me. But, this movie hit a part of you where it's like, dam, these people really did suffer. Lives were spent getting FREEDOM, instead of WEALTH.

Love your fellow human being like no tomorrow my friends.

I had pretty much the exact same reaction. Then I read somewhere that the editing issues were intentionally designed to create this disjointed view the represents the spotty recollection from Leo's character's perspective.

If it were anyone but Scorcese, I'd call total horseshit, but I'm actually curious. I'd like to see it again.

Although another part of me wonders even if it were intentional and even brilliant, if it didn't make film more enjoyable, why should it matter.

Waterworld- 6.5/10

Underrated movie. Fvckin' stupid as hell, but entertaining as fvck. I wish Costner let the kid die early though, she really dragged the film down.

What made that movie famous for being bad was how bad it bombed considering its budget. What is crazy to me is that it has been nearly 20 years since this panned movie came out and it is still a major attraction at Universal Studios.
