Oh they were vampires? Wow I take it back then, GREAT movie.

Oh wait, pretty sure IDGAF if they are zombies or vampires. Thanks for bringing a completely immaterial point to my attention. It went from a really well-written, well-acted crime thriller to an alt-universe horror movie halfway through. I couldn't care less which types of fictional monsters they are. It's dumb.

BTW add Synecdoche NY to the list of snoozers. I'm done trusting reviews about these yawners.

I second both of these sentiments.

The Railway Man - 7.5/10

This was a tale of two halves, the first half of this movie was badly paced and all over the place. The second half of this movie was incredible, intensely powerful and very good..overall a good movie, but I disliked the first half of the movie so it bumps the score down.

Forgot I watch this last weekend. A pretty big WTF for me after watching it partly because I was massively hungover and only semi-coherent. There was some really cool visuals and some great moments but overall the film was massively convoluted. Had a kind of multiverse sci-fi storyline where true love concurs all at the end. I'd have to watch it again to really form a full opinion and I'll probably never do that. I think a handful of moments outweighed the plot induced confusion for me.

6/10

I was just saying that obviously you didn't pay much attention to the movie if you didn't know they were vampires. That's like me reviewing The Lost Boys by saying "once I realized they were all zombies I stopped paying attention!"

It was a mix of Tarantino style and Robert Rodriguez campy horror...it isn't supposed to be anything deep, it is supposed to be "dumb"...but the way it was pulled off was something new and very entertaining for many people.

Adaptation is a little dry, but Cage is great in it, and it's impressively written from a meta standpoint.

Dusk till Dawn is just classic.

That's what I was thinking. the guy simply doesn't appreciate Charlie Kaufmann which is cool but not liking or at least getting a kick out of From Dusk Til Dawn is just to me.

As far as screenwriting though, all those films have balls in spades.

His eccentricity works brilliantly to me in that one because it's a very meta piece of work. There's a quirky cleverness that was amusing to me. It's impressive to have a plot about wild orchids and have it be entertaining. At least it was for me. I own it on Blu Ray.

My Blu Ray collection goes pretty hard
