AWESOME movie!

I love the coke dealer jamming out to Sister Christian while the Asian kid is lighting firecrackers in the house.

That whole scene is intense.

Definitely edge of your seat stuff.

Cedar Rapids is... well... "Awesome". Loved it! Very funny and I loved the way Ed Helms portrayed his character as naive and dorky but also someone that is smart and funny.

Recently watched this on HBO.

Actually a pretty funny movie.

Especially appealing with all the music references.

Russell Brand nails the burn-out British rocker stereotype perfectly.

P Diddy plays an awesome role, he's funny as hell.

And Jonah Hill is a pretty funny guy.

One of my favorite lines from the movie...

Stuck in traffic in London and late for a flight, Jonah Hill's character Aaron Green asks the limo driver if he can speed it up -

Limousine Driver in London: Would you like me to take the Chiswick roundabout through Hounslow and Staines?

Aaron Green: What is this, fucking Middle Earth? Just take us to the airport, okay?

Definitely worth watching, a real rock 'n roll kinda movie.

Love this one!!

The bit with the furry wall is priceless.

Went to Cars 2 today with kids and friends. Very enjoyable. Better than the first one, faster moving story and shorter in duration. Everyone had a good time.

Next, going to check out "Bad Teacher".

I enjoyed it too. I'd heard a lot of good things about it when it was originally in the theatres so I was anxious to see it once it came out on DVD.

This is probably the most bizzare movie I have seen so far! :blink:

I saw this last night :

You really had to have a lot of patience and a very open minded sense of humour to get through this! :huh:

But hell, I sure found it to be really funny in a very outrageous way! :P

Have I seen any movies? Oh yeah, about 20 or so the past few weeks. The L.A. Film Festival ended tonight, and I will write a major film wrap-up post soon, but there is ONE MUST-SEE FILM I want to share with everyone...it just opened this past weekend in LA and other select cities. Hopefully it will come to your town. Those of you living outside the U.S. and Canada are probably out of luck. It is a documentary and those rarely make it overseas, so you'll have to wait for the dvd.

The movie is called "BUCK", and it tells the story about this remarkable guy, Buck Brannaman, who specializes in training horses non-violently. He learned from one of the original horse-whisperers. Here's the trailer for the film:

My next must-see.

Really want to see that, too.

Saw "X-Men: First Class" - pretty good. Conflicting bad guys kind of took away some of the impact. Wolverine has a brief cameo and kills it!

Great film. One of the greatest war films and films in general.

Having never seen it, I wasn't sure whether to go with the original cut or the Redux. I should probably watch the original someday just for comparison's sake but it won't be any time soon as that was one long ass movie.

The original is far better than the Redux version...and I could write a THESIS explaining why, but the Wimbledon semi's are on and Tsonga just won the third set to get back in the match, so I don't have the time nor the focus to elucidate. Maybe later...I'll pm you.

Both Coppola and George Lucas need to be quarantined somewhere to prevent them from going back and RUINING their old movies! It's like a disease with those two.

Thanks, I'll have to watch it at some point. I also wasn't sure which way to go with the re-edited version of Donnie Darko so I watched the newer one.

Not a fan of Jack Black's over the top antics but he pretty much keeps those in check here which probably helped me to enjoy this movie way more than I was expecting to.

Now, on Donnie Darko, the newer version works, as this was what the director INTENDED to show originally but because of budget and studio interference wasn't...actually I like both versions, but the director's cut makes some of the weirder story elements clearer...and the music cues are what he originally wanted.

A HIGHLY UNDERRATED AND OVERLOOKED film...and thoroughly enjoyable. Loved all the "Sweded" clips...someone should do a "sweded" version of "The Song Remains the Same". It'd be hilarious.

Michel Gondry has done some of my favourite films of the past decade, with "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" being near the top of the list. And his music video work is practically second-to-none. Too bad "Be Kind and Rewind" didn't do better at the B.O., but hopefully it will have a second-life on dvd and cable; much like Donnie Darko did.

Don't know if I want to see his "Green Hornet", though...it looked TERRIBLE.

Going to see the new John C. Reilly movie, "Terri" tonight...they shot a scene in the bookshop I work at in Pasadena, Book Alley. Hopefully it made the cut.

Yes to all of the above, Brad! :)

Sadly, my date and I agreed "Terri" was just meh. Could've been better. But we did recognize the bookstore and a couple other locations. They filmed the movie all over the Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre area.

Of recent movies I've seen, "Submarine" and "Beginners" were far better than "Terri".

Oh well, at least it wasn't as godawful as "Larry Crowne".

I don't mind a movie where everything isn't all spelled out for you but by the time I was done watching Donnie Darko I had to look up an explanation online so I could fathom what I'd just seen.

There was that segment Conan O'Brien did on his show a few years ago. Not quite the same thing but still pretty funny.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is one of my favorite movies ever but nothing else he's done (including Be Kind, Rewind) has lived up to it. At least not to me.

Don't know if I want to see his "Green Hornet", though...it looked TERRIBLE.

It was. I chalk it up to Seth Rogen. I enjoyed him in Knocked Up but The Green Hornet and Pineapple Express (which he also had a huge hand in writing) were both downright horrible.

From over the weekend:

More of a movie aimed at teens and young adults than I was expecting but the surf sequences were breathtaking. It made me want to search out Endless Summer (which, believe it or not, I've never seen) but the local Blockbuster doesn't carry it.

51GJvu9xiyL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Another in a long line of typical gross out comedies but this one did have some redeeming qualities.

51Q2MVZ5QRL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Haven't figured out if I dislike Jesse Eisenberg or if it's just the characters that he plays. That said, there's not really anyone that's likable in this movie. It is a good film, if not a little too graphic at times but the story wouldn't be the same without those moments. It makes me feel all the more fortunate that I had two very loving parents and never had to deal with the pains of divorce.
