11:14

The Sessions was outstanding. I only made it through about 1/4 of 11:14 before I turned it off. The other two were OK.

Ha...don't know what that means but ok. I don't get it. What void to they fill? Makes me wonder about those people! They're an unnecessary pain to me. Barking drives me bananas! Slobbering, hair, sh*te, etc. Zero animal guy. I always neglect to mention it on first dates though!

Once I went to my friend's place to go to a club, wearing off-white pants. His dog jumped up at me, mud all down my pants. Could have shot the thing (not really...maybe). Had to have a conversation with his parents in their living room in my underwear whilst my pants were being washed. Class.

As for hunting...I think it'd be hypocritical of me not to shoot an animal but happily order a venison steak at a resto.

Am fascinated with the Animal Kingdom though, in a DVD kind of hands-off way.

Anyway, back to films....I saw Man Of Steel. Very popcorn.

I thought so as well. I need to watch it again to reconfirm.

I've only seen maybe half of the films that were up for best picture last year, but I'd put both Silver Linings Playbook and The Sessions ahead of Argo -- with SLP the best. I thought John Hawkes was excellent as was William H. Macy. Helen Hunt was very good, and I really thught the actress that played Vera (Moon somebody) was good too.

I saw this also. After reading the Vanity Fair article on him and how he makes 3 mil a month on his shows, I kept saying to myself: he gets paid 3 mil a month to make this stuff?

Loved most of the Reacher books. Hated this movie. Horrible casting decision for Reacher. Tom Cruise?? Confused

My wife picked the film as she also enjoyed the books. Seeing it cold with no background info, I thought it was like watching a lightbulb: on = action, off = dull acting go back to reading email...

I heard he bought the rights and cast himself, which sounds about right but I don't have any proof of that. Either way, no interest... Roll Eyes

You are correct. Another case of ego trumping good judgement. Reacher is a 6'5" taciturn bad-ass, not a 5'7" sofa jumping pansy.

Okay, I'm going to say it. I have never seen any Star Trek movie. Eek

Books are excellent, but I refuse to see the movie with Cruise. Thank you for confirming my decision. Cruise as a character that is 6'5", 250 lbs? Please....

Eek KKKKKKKKKKhhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaannnnnnnn! Eek

BTW, finally watched The Sound of My Voice. How interesting is Brit Marling and who wouldn't want her for a girlfriend? Is the movie perfect, no--but I'll take someone trying something interesting instead of Fast and Furious 24 any day!

Me either. Same for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. To be fair, I'm not a big movie fan and probably only watch 2-4 movies a year.

Pet peeve. Wink

Anyway... I saw one Star Trek movie when I was like, 7, at a birthday party. Haven't seen the new ones, though I hear they are good. As far as you not having seen Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings is concerned... wow Eek

I've always felt that Star Wars is more interesting from a genre-creation perspective than it is actually a good series. And the recent ones are crap.

I'm not big on wizards and stuff like that, plus I just don't watch a lot of movies as I said. I have a hard time sitting still for 2 hours is really what it is. I would rather be doing something or if its late I would rather read. Most of the movies I watch are by accident.

+1, and I watch a lot of movies.
The Raven - Good looking film. I like John Cusack, but this was not one of his good films.

Reds 2 - if you liked the first film you'll like the second. Great cast. My favorite was Mary Louise Parker.
My wife is a big horror fan so took her to The Conjuring. It was actually better than I expected, although my expectations around horror movies has dropped dramatically over the years.
Hot Coffee - provides good insight to a lot of the "frivolous lawsuits" of the 90s

Garden State - this was on and we watched most of it. What a dumb, stupid, dumb movie with some really great actors in it (and I'm definitely not talking about Zach Braff).
