A lot of fast-forwarding

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy it KSC.
It is one of the three most polarizing movies that I know of, along with Irreversible and Inception.

No issue, TPE. Thank you for the referral.
Just not my cup of tea, but interesting. Very true to its' Japanese style.
I don't know; haven't seen the prequel. But I am tempted, just because I enjoyed the 1982 movie so much.

The ending is indeed haunting. From what I read, there was an alternative ending filmed that wasn't so bleak, but was never used.

Interestingly, the movie was considered a bomb, and at the time, was panned by critics. yet today, I think it is recognized as a classic.

His daughter, or even granddaughter I'm confident. Wink

Maybe, but I doubt it. They were seated next to us and the Maitre'D brought Tony Curtis and a woman about 30 over to their table to say hello. The woman with Curtis had on a mini of a mini skirt, completely inappropriate for La Cote Basque, but I'm guessing they wanted to be noticed.

What did you think?
Haven't seen the end yet as I shut it down to watch football. That said, any movie that Jude Law gets beaten to death with a boat oar can't be all bad. LOL.

Looks like your kind of movie w+a. Spoiled rich people wearing tailored clothes. Cool
Basically as high quality as home video reproduction gets (this is a new thing for me):
Pan's Labyrinth
Game of Thrones (Season 1)

I had never seen Drive and liked it, but did not love it as much as my friends. Ryan Gosling has become an excellent actor, though. (He was phenomenal in The Ides of March.) Pan's Labyrinth is an absolute favorite of mine, and Game of Thrones is a lot of fun.

I'm going to have to see The Perks of Being a Wallflower either at the movies or when it comes out on Blu-Ray... At least it is getting good reviews.

I'm probably more excited this movie viewing season than I can recall in recent memory:
The Master
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Les Miserables
Django Unchained

Are all absolute musts in the theatre for me this year.
