Speaking of upcoming movies, what are some that you guys are looking forward to? I'm really looking forward to The Immigrant with Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner (May 14th) and am also intrigued by The Drop with Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini. Gia Coppola's Palo Alto with James Franco and Emma Roberts looks like a really good indie. There's lots of good films that are set to come out this year, Terrance Malick has a few new ones coming up.


I just saw the trailer for The Immigrant last week online and think it looks really awesome. Just gorgeous looking sets, costumes, just everything.

And I saw The Drop trailer before Grand Budapest and thought that looked pretty good.

I watched it and tried to like it. It was terrible. People aren't exaggerating when they say Movie 43 was one of the worst of all time and a huge failure considering the hype and cast.

Plus Doc Brown gets shot and assumed killed within the first 20 minutes, Marty's mom is an alcoholic, and there's an implied rape attempt towards the end of the movie.

Think something along the lines of that fancy Elf city in Lord of the Rings meets Star Trek.

I do wish they hadn't nerfed Thor so hard in these movies; I still dug it though.

7.5/10
Thanks for the heads up. Just rented this, watching it in a few.

6.5/10

It was alright, nothing special and definitely over rated seeing as it has 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. A Catholic Priest is given a death threat and has a week to make amends with his estranged daughter and find out the identity of the man who threatened him, hilarity ensues.


I'll be seeing the latest Tom Hardy film "Locke" tonight. I'll post a review tomorrow.

Can't wait to see with what Malick comes up with. Tree of Life was probably my favorite movie of the past 5 years so his new releases will be an automatic watch for me.

I do remember Marty saying all of those words. I can see it being PG-13, but is a soft PG-13. Yeah, PG-13 came out in 1984. I think the first movie to receive the rating was the original Red Dawn.

Did you see his newest film To The Wonder? It came out last year and is shot in the same maneer as Tree. It got pretty bad reviews but I really loved it because I love Malick.

on malick: loved to the wonder, but underwhelmed by tree; i thought the metaphysical bookends were tedious and less-than-inspiring at the time, but its probably worth a re-watch.



been mulling over under the skin for a couple days. its certainly more akin to birth (which i enjoyed) than to sexy beast, but it's more cinematic(?)/lyrical than either.
its certainly elliptical, interested more in textures than explicit narrative. some beautiful and haunting visual and aural compositions. it certainly doesn't strive to be emotionally engaging, and its rhythms might teeter on monotony.

FWIW: disagreed philosophically with the framing of what may have been the penultimate scene. also, scarjo was pretty ****ing hot, considering the circumstances.

probably the antithesis to species, would cautiously recommend.

7.5-8

The Hunt


This movie pissed me off.

Not because it was bad or anything; actually it was excellent. Bitches though. Bitches.

You might assume the movie has something to do with hunting, and it does, but not in the way you'd think. Think more along the lines of a witch hunt.

9/10

Locke 7/10

Interesting Drama from Steven Knight. The film stars Tom Hardy and takes place in his car. The dialogue is between him and whoever he might be on the phone to. The film is essentially about a mans life unraveling in his journey down to London. It's an Independent film and leans towards a Theatre piece than a typical film. Definitely worth a watch if you're a fan of indie films.

I had a similar feeling toward Tree.

Under the Skin I was just writing about in the thread about naked Scarlett Johansen. Hopefully it's still playing at the little arthouse theatre near me. I mentioned Species in there too. What little I know it struck me as a tonal horror flick falling somewhere between Species explicit gore and Starman's hackney'd 80s formula, but falling somewhere on a similar spectrum. Maybe some bodysnatchers in there too.
