On an other unrelated note, G1.0 are you ready for Tony Romo to actually step up for once and just completely torch Baltimore's secondary for about 375 yards, 4 TD's, and 0 sacks?
Romo? Hell no. DeMarco? Molestation.


I JUST watched Prometheus & I immediately regretted not going to the movies to see it, totally whiffed on that one. That movie was excellent, beginning to end.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Goldie Hawn gets to fuck Kurt Russell, even looking like that, lucky bitch, Kurt could be up to his arms in poon even now.

Kurt Russell is the man.

Also watched The Game for the first time in years last night, opinions still the same: Amazing first 2 hours, possibly some of David Fincher's best work, completely ruined by a horrendous ending.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

(X-post from The *jobbers* thread)

Got back from Sinister a while ago. Given that I have never actually attended a horror film in a cinema, and that I was viewing what was considered to be the best of said genre this year, I had a feeling I was going to embarrass myself; I can jump quite a height when startled by loud, infrequent noises, of which this film utilizes and milks to the best of its ability. So I was contemplating to myself throughout the hour and a half of keeping my fingers in close proximity of my ears, that I eventually would look as if I was just going to the toilet, and never return, to savour looking like a little bitch in front of a fair amount of people my age.

Thing is, however, is that after many scenes of repeatedly promising myself "Okay, I'll get up after this part is over.", it suddenly just ended. The movie was over. My naive-to-horror self had sat through all 105 minutes with relative ease. Even if I didn't occasionally plug my fears into my eardrums, I probably still would've got through it fine. And this was seriously meant to be best of 2012?

Following this, the actual film aspects, having been muddled with the idea of making every excuse to traumatize the viewer, suddenly came to mind. From this perspective, it seems painfully mediocre. The story itself, albeit structured nicely beforehand, built up to nothing, the writing was below-average and the characters felt like necessities.

The most depressing aspect I myself am faced with, however, remains the crushing idea of "Have I seen it all?". Granted, obviously there's a treasure trove of psychological and supernatural horror films for me to sink my teeth into, but if the general public has honestly brought itself to consider this a classic upon the titans of horror, then quite frankly, this leaves me with little motivation for future viewings of alternatives.

Tbh, I'd fuck Kurt Russell.

Been meaning to watch The Game for a while, think it's the only Fincher film I've not seen. I've read from other people that the end sucked though which is kinda' gay.

I am inclined to agree.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.
