Django Unchained - WOW just wow. What a movie! Vintage Tarantino. Great cinematography and that soundtrack, amazing! A++

The Lone Ranger - Was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Make some popcorn and enjoy the ride! Johnny Depp was wonderfully funny. Much better than his Jack Sparrow character who was barely tolerable in the first film, no idea why they have to make 5 movies of the same crap.

The Road(2009) starring the great Viggo Mortensein is a dark and bleak post apocalyptic movie about a man and his son and the realities of having to scavenge to survive in a non-forgiving world.
The Divide(2011) is about a group of people who manage to find refuge in a basement of an apartment complex during a nuclear fallout. Very Gruesome. Let's just say this movie makes The Road look like a disney movie in comparison.

Gran Torino - Can't go wrong with Clint Eastwood. This is one of those must watch movies.

End of Watch - Good movie about two beat cops in LA. Jake Gyllenhaal and his partner Michael Pena have great on screen chemistry.

Finished off Foreign Film week with Infernal Affairs and The Diving Bell and The Butterfly. This week is going to be a throwback to old childhood movies with the likes of The Goonies, The Monstersquad, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Willow going on the playlist. Honorable mention to The Neverending Story, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Going to be fun watching these childhood classics again on the big screen in HD.

PS to fans of Oldboy, apparently the script of the remake has already been leaked and I've already read of some changes. I don't think this one is going to have quite the shock value which makes the original an instant classic. I don't usually go to the theaters but I think this is one I might have to catch on the big screen. Perhaps we can have a HFboards movie night?

I wholeheartedly agree. The song which plays during the end credits is breath taking. I listened to it over and over when I first heard it. M83 did a fantastic job on the soundtrack and I absolutely love Susanne Sundfør's voice!

The Dark Knight did it for me. When it ended, I literally couldn't get out of my seat...I was like wow, wow...wow...that was awesome.

I only wish the episodes were an hour long. They feel too short and truncated as it is.
Have you ever watched Louis CK first series Lucky Louie?

Great series, too much cutting edge adult material didn't make it past the first season.

No, I'm aware of it but I never watched it. I think it's on youtube though so maybe I'll check it out after.

everywhere he went he collected things, like the bobblehead, or the shack, of the baseball cap... there's far more stupid things than that come on, like the chick giving birth on her own and raising a kid by her lonesome for what, 3-4 years?

google "Lucky Louie Anal" if that scene gives you a laugh track down the series and watch. It's raunchy but funny.

I love Louis CK. That scene is as good as it gets for 'Lucky Louie', but it's nowhere near as good as anything on 'Louie'.

'Lucky Louie' is your (sub)standard TV sitcom with foul language and a bit of raunchiness. What makes it work is the chemistry between Louis CK and Pam Adlon.



'Louie' is a one-of-a-kind **********ing piece of art. Such a uniquely great show. How Louis CK can write a show where he can portray himself as pathetic one moment then sublimely hilarious the next while keeping the stories compelling is beyond me. I love the discomfort (for lack of a better description) he sets in the situations he creates: he deconstructs the 'sit-slash-com' concept. Considering he does it all by himself (writing and directing alone for the most part), I'd say the guy's a storytelling genius.

I've watched most of Louie, just great. It can also be incredibly depression. Pam Adlon is a fox, too. Loved her in californication, as well.


Surprised californication hasn't been mentioned here yet.

I think that's why the show works. You never know where he's gonna take you next. Name me one comedy (TV or movie) that can keep you on the edge like that. It's like he's asking the viewers to walk with him on a tightrope - in the dark. At some point, you'll fall off, but you don't know if Louie will make you laugh, cry or feel guilty or depressed because you're just as clueless about life as he is.

Maybe I like the show so much because I recognize myself in the guy

I can't bring myself to watch it after finding out that Duchovny is the reason X-Files got so bad later on. I will be bitter FOREVER.

What did you think about the crazy hitman at the gas station?

It is an allegory for drone warfare and its effects on the human condition.

One of the greatest sci fi movies in years, unfortunately it tells a message people do not want to hear.

I watched the two recent Star Trek movies (Star Trek & Star Trek Into Darkness). To start off, I generally dislike Star Trek yet I quite liked these movies. Good action flicks. Though I hear Star Trek purists hate it.

It was also cheesy and predictable. After the first half hour it was sloppy story telling.
