I need to see Noah, for nothing if not out of respect for Aronofsky looking at the BIBLE and saying "Hmmmm, yeah, that's pretty good... Let's make it better!" That takes SERIOUS guts.

I can respect that opinion but I disagree. The Bible isn't that great to begin with and it's completely over filmed.

I mean, a lot of the bible is ass backwards, but the Old Testament really had a lot of "WOW, ARE YOU SERIOUS?" moments. That's why Hollywood overfilmed the hell out of it. They could get past censors because they were being accurate to the Bible. That fad went away a while ago, and now we usually only get adaptations by lunatics.

Just saw Sabotage, the new Schwarzenegger flick by David Ayer, very very cool stuff. Hard boiled mashismo-tastic violent thriller, cool stuff.

This is probably the grimmest movie that Arnie's ever been in. I liked it (even if it got a little too twisty for its own good), but it is a bloody, cynical, not-at-all-happy movie. Ayer definitely knows how to shoot uncomfortably raw gun violence (which I totally love).

Very agreed, really intense stuff, and unflinching with the gore. And especially dark and heavy for Arnie's character. But also interesting how it has so much really funny sharp dialogue too.

Ooooh, I am for the first time interested in seeing this now.

Somehow I never even new this movie existed. Since I don't watch TV and have Adblock I don't find out movies unless NPR talks about them while I'm driving or see a preview in theaters.

As weird as NOAH seems to be by all reports, I hope Rifftrax riffs it eventually.

NOAH. A whole movie devoted to trying to get Hermione Granger wet.

Noah is over filmed, or the Bible is over filmed?

We're the Millers

A fairly forgettable but watchable comedy film with some great laugh moments and some alright performances.  Will Poulter is particularly good as the really awkward kids who pretends to be Jason Sudeikis' son.

Ok I watched half of Frozen and I have to admit I'm not impressed at all....

To be fair, I was sort of distracted, but I really was giving it a chance... I won't go into excruciating detail but all in all I just wasn't getting into it. The music seemed tripe and way too contemporary for my liking, I couldn't understand why that one song won an academy award but whatever.

I'm going to give it another chance though, my friend lent me the dvd so I will try again. I didn't finish it so maybe it gets better...?

As for tonight, I'm going to watch Amelie, I've never seen it before and I hear it's good. I saw a clip where she [main character] turns around in a movie theater to look at the people behind her and I thought 'hey I've done that a few times, I've gotta see this movie,' and even in that one little clip the cinematography looked great which is always a plus. Also apparently it's directed by the same guy who did Delicatessan & City of Lost Children so I have rationally high hopes since I love both of those movies.

Soshite Chichi ni Naru (And so, one becomes a Father) 2013

(Eng. title: Like Father, Like Son)

Again, Kirokazu Kore-eda delivers one of the greatest novellas on contemporary Japanese society (and contemporary families in general) - I think he's a wonder.

Lucky! Heck I still haven't seen "I Wish" yet. Have you seen the film "The Other Son", I just wondered if "Like Father, Like Son" was drawing from the same well, or if it was completely different take on the subject?

Gravity
I liked it; it was very intense and well acted. But I can’t say I was over the moon for it. And you know, I didn’t mean to become an iconoclast for 2013 film but that seems to be the way I’m going in many cases. Ha Ha. On the other hand I dug several movies that the critics were luke warm to (The Great Gatsby, Bling Ring)
 
Rush
I'm not a racing fan but this was a well-done Ron Howard film -- interesting subject and character piece. Exciting, solid camerawork

About Time
It’s not really about time travel; it’s about appreciating life. It was a slow starter and the couples in the film are too perfect (nobody fights?) You could also quibble about the morality (your mucking with peoples free will and their life choices). But again, it’s really about making the best of your life, appreciating what’s beautiful and special in it. Very sentimental, but I bought into it, it’s final hour is particularly strong.

I watched Alien for the first time last night. Although I wouldn't say it scared me, it was certainly intense. I imagine that at the time the effects were more frightening than now. It was a good call to barely show the thing, but they still showed too much. Once it's clearly a man in a suit, it hurts the mood a lot. I definitely prefer the feel of this movie to Aliens, which I watched the night before. I'm glad I watched it first, too, because otherwise I'd have been so stressed out about the safety of Jones the cat that I wouldn't have been able to enjoy it. Jones is still alright in Aliens.

Aliens definitely shows the aliens too much. I know it's an action movie instead of horror, but they should still be somewhat frightening, and guys in suits just aren't. Also, minor complaint, but I don't think the redesigned, ribbed for pleasure aliens are nearly as disturbing as the original.

I don't have Alien 3, so I'll be skipping to Resurrection, which I have no confidence will be any good.

If you could watch Alien 3 first, it'll make Alien Resurrection better.  Not in a plot continuity way, just comparison of quality.  Watching it your way you'll just see a continued slope downward, instead of a dip and slight rebound.

I read the book to 3 and decided never to watch the movie, but have watched Resurrection.  While my dislike of 3 was based on how the story unfolded, resurrection is not scary, has multiple levels of stupid, pretty much only good as riff fodder.
