Holy christ it was utterly spectacular. I mean one of those films where you hear nothing but eternal praise and go into it expecting something magnificent but still being shocked by just how good it is. The score and pacing to create such piercing tension was just inspiring, and its a tragedy more horror films today are solely focused on the gore aspect rather than the shock and psychological undertones which drive pure horror. What I especially loved was the smart use of alternate camera angles to really capture Michael's every shifting presence and its ability to force you to expect him to be hiding anywhere in a particular scene ready to strike at any moment.
One of the creepiest film themes ever. Halloween II wasn't bad. H20 is great, too.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Cage on form is one of the most outstanding and fun actors to watch, and he's brilliant in this. I found the end to be surprisingly moving. NIC FUCKING CAGE! Loved it.

As a Coen fan, I admit I do not like Raising Arizona. Lebowski is their most sublimely perfect comedy IMO. No Country is their greatest.

I would've hit it and deserted it.

Clue me in people that liked this movie. It might be one of those "need to watch more than once" because it is kinda hard to follow, but I didn't give a shit about any of these characters. They all seemed the same to me. Maybe that's the point, but it made for a difficult viewing.

It's an old school spy story styled in those pre-007. Oldman was great, though.

Shame was A LOT more explicit than I was expecting, the UK certificate rating is a lot different to the US so films that are rated R and NC17 in the US fall under the "18" bracket here. Fassbender was brilliant, as he always is. Carey Mulligan was great aswell, she also got nude in it which I wasn't expecting.
Fassbender was woefully ignored Oscar time.

I've met Kristanna in person a few times. Complete gorgeous and sexy and sweet. I'd nail her in any cell

I heard Matt Damon was playing him for an HBO project.

She's one of those weird hot/cute actresses for me. For example, I didn't find Anna Kendrick hot or cute in any of the Twilight movies nor did I find her really attractive in Up In The Air. But I just re-watched 50/50 and thought she looked so damn cute, just beautiful in that movie unlike the other movies.

Same deal for Natalie Portman. Didn't find her hot or really attractive in V For Vendetta or any of the Star Wars movies which is probably obvious because of the ridiculous make-up and hair she had most of the time, even the times when she looked somewhat normal, I just thought meh. But I thought she was super sexy in Hesher, maybe it was the nerdy glasses or that she came off as a slut.

I'm weird.

Kendrick was hottest in Up in the Air, but I have a thing for babes in business attire.

Portman always fantastic. Talented and beautiful. And I'd take the masturbation scene over the lesbian scene, to be honest.

Chloe Grace Moretz. There's an actress that would get it.
She'll be what Emma Watson is now.

Saw Monday. No embargo. It's great. Solace may have suffered from too many problems (writers strike, high bar set by Royale, etc.), but Skyfall is definitely better. Plus, one of the best looking Bond films ever. That's because Roger f'n Deakins filmed it.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.

REP is great, but bumping keeps threads alive!
