I missed Alias.
Damn, have not seen that in ages. Classic.Rumble in the Bronx has been on lately. So fucking hilarious lol
First couple of seasons are awesome. It goes downhill after that, but I was addicted to that show in the first two seasons or so. I actually was about to re-watch it, but I started NewsRadio again instead. ^_^I missed Alias.
Funny, I'd never heard of this, but I was reading this review: http://www.filmjunk.com/2011/09/26/fantastic-fest-2011-take-shelter-review/ yesterday and now I absolutely have to see it. Huge fan of Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain was awesome in Tree of Life.I want to see Take Shelter this wekeend but it's only playing in NYC from what I see. Damn
Hehe yeah being a car guy it really hurt my enjoyment of the film. I guess my three criticisms can be shortened as follows :Refn does not even have a driver's license, so maybe that is why some of the car stuff is inaccurate.
I always respect your opinion Ark, but pretty much all of those criticisms really sound like nitpicking. I know nothing about cars, so cannot comment on the accuracy of that stuff; all I know if it felt real to me and the tension was palpable throughout, particularly in the driving scenes.
Our best guess for rick:1.7 starsSet in a dystopian near-future, director Richard Kelly's visionary tale of doom and destruction mines post-Sept. 11 angst and paranoia as Los Angeles teeters on the verge of social, financial and ecological catastrophe. While a heat wave blasts the sprawling metropolis, one man foresees the coming apocalypse -- but can he prevent it? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson heads a star-studded cast that includes Sarah Michelle Gellar and Justin Timberlake.
I liked it (mildly), as something similar to a David Lynch or David Cronenberg helping of weirdness. Not as good as Blue Velvet or even ExistenZ, but more memorable than the latest Jason Statham popcorn movie.Southland Tales - ???/10: I honestly have no idea what this movie was about. In many parts it felt like satire, in others like straight up comedy, but in even other parts it felt quite earnest. It all added up to a muddled clusterfuck of a movie. .. . Funnily enough I may revisit this when I'm not so tired and can focus better.
I can see that, but Lynch and Cronenberg do not, at least to me, go weird just for the sake of being weird. Kelly seems to trip over himself trying to be interesting and unique. It just became a mess and I had no idea what was happening and I honestly am not sure Kelly did either. I will re-watch it at some point, because there is the definite possibility that I missed something, but I can't think I'm alone in thinking this was a bit of a disaster.I liked it (mildly), as something similar to a David Lynch or David Cronenberg helping of weirdness.
