The awesomeness inherent in this post is nearly too much to bare. And it's not for the reasons you'd hope.

But that? Looks so dumb.

Maybe I'm just not in the right mood.

Or maybe you're too sober...

Awww, U2Democrat. Thist post makes me sad. Are you sure you didn't mean it the other way around?

And to laz: I have no idea what you're talking about.

I know, it's horrible Ever since I was a kid I had a soft spot for Alvin and the Chipmunks, go figure It'll probably be horrible, but a nice mindless movie after finals will be just what I need.

As for Atonement, it just looks like a cookie cutter Oscar film

I saw Darjeeling Ltd. yesterday. My sister thought it was hilarious, but I didn't think it was funny.

It's anything but cookie-cutter, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.

Have you read the book? Because it's a great story, and a really good adaptation of the book.

I think the fans of this movie are more about Wes Anderson directing style.

The visuals.

I found it funny.

I really enjoyed the Kinks songs alot.

And I liked the entire film.

If one is a Wes Anderson fan this film will please them.

Abonement is getting universally very good reviews.


I do agree with U2dem

the previews look pretty sappy

but previews can be misleading

The trailers for Atonement were some of the worst of the year. Entirely boring, and yes, a bit misleading.

Yeah, I'd say the "sappiness" quotient of the trailers is a bit misleading, but if I say why, it's really ruining the whole story - particularly the ending.

Don't be fooled by the trailers. It's a very, very good movie.

More "Youth Without Youth" stuff

Here's a cool interview from comingsoon.net

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=40049

And they also posted a short clip from the film...very cool stuff

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=40032

And for the hell of it, I'll post a fake DVD cover I designed for this movie, for a Rotten Tomatoes "DVD Cover redesign photoshop competition type thing...". I have only just started teaching myself photo-editing software, so it's obviously not high-quality stuff, but I this is as good a place to share it as any I suppose.

Nicely done.

I'm in Orlando now, and there is like nothing even close to indie fare to watch here. I think I'm going to see The Golden Compass. Although, strangely, one theatre is showing It's A Wonderful Life. Never seen that in the theatre before.

Sucks that I have to wait a week and a half to get back to Los Angeles and see all the good stuff.

A surprisingly VERY positive review for I Am Legend over at the Village Voice, who are usually pretty picky and don't care for standard Hollywood fare. Guess I'll be checking this one out after all:

http://www.villagevoice.com/film/075...,78573,20.html

And compared to the other critiques I've read, a very forgiving review of Youth Without Youth by the paper's head critic J. Hoberman, the pickiest of the picky:

http://www.villagevoice.com/film/075...,78576,20.html


Light spoilers and plot points discussed in both.

Our department at work is being taken out to lunch next Friday, and then we get the rest of the afternoon off.

I smell a Friday matinee in my future!

Winter Park has a theater or two, or the Enzian out by Maitland.

Yeah, there are a lot of special "holiday" showings of films around this time of year out there.

Are you staying out by Disney or downtown?
