Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Only God Forgives isnt as bad as everyone said and somehow I knew it wouldnt be. Lacks a little in spots, mos def worth a watch. Gosling really good again, still like Drive better. Refn the director has now made a handful of really solid flicks. Ive mentioned them before awhile back, but he directed "The Pusher" trilogy. These 3 movies are incredible, check them out.

A huge movie buff friend of mine said "The Act of Killing" is officially in his all time top ten. He told me its a brilliant approach.

I concur with that guy's assessment.

OGF gets better with each viewing. The best cinematography I've seen this year. Also agree on Refn. This film had a bit of the surreal, similar to Valhalla Rising. The score was composed by the same guy as Drive (Cliff Martinez).

Can't wait to see Act of Killing. Jeff Nichols' (Take Shelter) Mud is a really fine coming of age story.

Emperor is good. especially if you like WW2/history stuff.

also the colony is okay. it's basically a zombie movie though.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Going to see Elysium tomorrow night and stoked, but in the mean time if anyone is a fan of any of DC's anapimated features, Justice League:Flashpoint Paradox was really good and worth a rental or picking up at target or somewhere for $14. One thing I will say is this was super ballsy of DC because this was one of the hardest I've ever seen a pg-13 rating get pushed and honestly think it should have been r-rated.

Oh man, I thought I was the only one who saw this... I kind of liked it. I think Omar from the Wire was an executive producer.

So Ben Affleck is the new Batman it seems. I was kind of hoping they'd go outside the box, and go with like Idris Elba

Ehhh. Affleck is an uninspiring choice. I mean I like the guy but this isn't exciting. As far as Elba...I'd love to see him as the next Bond.
