Fucking Dreyfus is not in Abyss, dude. Look it up.

Dreyfus owns the screen, ask him, he'll tell you.

I suppose you think you know movies.

What's better Richard Dreyfus or a face full of Natalie Portman's box? Haha, exactly.

The joke is on you, raised from the dead.

I said The Abyss surpasses Close Encounters "in some ways". That doesn't mean I think it's a better film. My point is that in CE3K once you have first contact, we just have a spectacle that doesn't really portray the way a human communicates or engages with an alien entity. It was more about the obsession with the IDEA of something being out there. And Dreyfuss really is the only character that gets to go through the whole experience, whereas in The Abyss we see how different types of personalities react when they're presented with the possibility.

Visually, CE3K is much more iconic and awe-inspiring. It's a much more open film. It's epic. By comparison The Abyss is a bit more scaled-down (until the Director's Cut stuff at the end) and claustrophobic. That adds to its suspense, but it does become more of a stock thriller (done very well, of course).

What the fuck does Natalie Portman have to do with it?

Well, I suppose we can't agree on all things.

I guess it's also worth mentioning, that despite the claims of the original site that artwork was found on, that's likely not any real artwork from the finished film. I mean, it might be something produced by Fox specifically to simply have something to show for the film at this early state, but it's likely not genuine genuine. Even if just for the fact that the majority of fauna on Pandora is violet.

I'm just saying, Schwartzman's got a pretty big nose, and you think his sense of smell would be powerful. I'd like to ask him, "Strawberries, right?"

I'm going to go ahead and construe this as an anti-semetic remark. In regards to Schwartzman, not Portman. To be clear.

NSW is the Uncle Leo of the board. He thinks everything's anti-semitic.

I was just thinking of her ass, I guess.

That and drugs probably.
