Room 237 is so dumb it is just a collection of people's hair brain idea's of what Kuback was trying to do in the moive. Complete left field the whole movie; don't waste your time.

Hey did you see this: A Prophet (2009) - IMDb "Un Prophete"

Holy shit, really well written screenplay, can be alittle confusing sometimes with so many things going on in the end. But the suspence building sequences were probably some of the best on film ive seen.

Id read about this movie a couple years ago, finally queued it and wow. Immediately in my top 5 foreign movies all time. Pick it up if you havent viewed it.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

The Wolf of Wall Street was a good movie, I'm hesitant to call it great because the ending is kinda flat (although if you've read the book it basically follows the ending of the book) but other than that I enjoyed it.

Anchorman 2, well I wish I had stayed home from that. I still love the original, and I knew the previews didn't look that good but me and fam went and saw it anyways. It's disappointing. I'm sure it's really hard for directors to capture the magic that made the first movie what it was, but I suspect in a few months I'll have erased this movie from my memory.

Of yeah, for sure... Un Prophete was my favorite foreign flick the year it came out. I remember being disappointed that it lost to The Secret In Their Eyes that year... The Academy rarely delivers. Lots of cool symbolism in Un Prophete. Dug the score, too.

Ah, I meant to say Christmas Day I went to see Anchorman 2... It was very.. eh... It had its moments but the first one is definitely better.

Went to see a double feature-

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty-9/10 Got to love Ben Stiller! Different role for him!
Grudge Match-8/10 Kevin Hart was a little annoying and funny at the same time.

Went to see Her and loved it. If you're a tech nerd, you'll love it. Moving and very thought provoking. Also hilarious in some parts.

Plus, who doesn't want to listen to Scarlett Johansson having an O? That made it worth it all alone.

Watched wolf of wall street last nite - good movie but not great. Jonah Hill's character was hysterical though.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Been watching a few recent movies lately, caught Lone Survivor the other day and I thought it was good but not great. I'm sure they trimmed some good parts out but I definitely enjoyed the book more. Also just finished Twelve Years a Slave, definitely enjoyed that and highly recommend it to anyone interested in historical films.

Saw the movie Francis Ha recently, amazing amazing amazing writing.

Great movie, but damn it, it made me miss my 20s. Really great story about class, hipster generation, etc. Great dialogue.

Saw Blue Jasmine too, really good typical woody allen

Trying to watch all the oscar nominees before Sunday. Last nite was American Hustle. Thought it was much better than Wolf of Wall Street. Both movies are so spun out Lol. Tonite - 12 years a slave.

I watched American Hustle, but to be honest I didn't like it that much. I though it would be really good but I was surprisingly disappointed. I definitely enjoyed Wolf of Wall Street though, I thought it was on par with the book. 12 Years A Slave is definitely great too.
