Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Ya'll who like Drive need to see Bronson. Refn is a filmmaker I'm keeping a close eye on.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I didn't think much of Lawless either. It had tons of potential but was just made in such a shoddy way. No proper flow in the movie. Tom Hardy was a badass but they didn't really manage to make his character worth investing in. Guy Pearce was the highlight of the movie and Gary Oldman was just not used enough.

Saw End of Watch too recently and it was a good cop drama. It didn't blow me away or anything. Always been a fan of Michael Pena's comedy work but he has decent dramatic acting chops as well. Didn't understand the point of making it in a documentary style since it didn't add much to the story for me and it had no resolution anyway. Overall a good watch tho.

Ted was funnier than I expected it to be. Nothing great but it got the job done.

Seen yeah it's greatness. It was also my first time really noticing Tom Hardy own.

I've never seen Michael Pena in anything comedy related. Fan of the guy though hes pretty good.

Seriously everyone should see it, it plays out like a thriller and has insane twists and turns. Definitely something you should know nothing about (aside from the basic story) before watching it.
Just watched this and thought it was a great movie. I went in not knowing anything about the case itself. I wish the ending felt more wrapped-up, but hey it's a real-life story and not a fictionalized movie. Documentaries that deliver a narrative like this are the main reason why I am really on a big documentary kick as of late.

Bubz, if you liked that movie check out My Father's Murderer: Letter To Zachary. I pimped it a few pages back and it's one of the few movies to make me tear up. It's not as well made as The Imposter as it suffers from a few melo-dramatic scenes but it's story is much better. It's on Youtube in it's entirety.

On the subject of that, what films makes you guys cry? Only other one that I can think of right now is Forrest Gump.

Oh, and that fucking dog scene from Futurama if that counts.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Check out Eastbound and Down McQueen. Pena was hilarious in the 2nd season. He was in a few comedy movies too but I can't remember any names at the moment.

I've tried getting into E&D and I just can't. It was too over the top for my liking.

I actually almost watched it when you posted the video, but I realized I had other shit to do, I'll download it today or something.

On the crying subject...I really can't remember actually crying at a film since I was young, but 50/50, Lars And The Real Girl (words can't describe the happiness I feel at the end of that movie), Up and Toy Story 3 almost did it. Funny that all of them seem to be comedies of some sort.

Did you notice it would cut in and out of hand held camera to actual camera? I'd be watching a real movie then all of a sudden I'm watching home film. I liked it.
