Damn. Now I have to see it. My wife and I both agreed the trailers made the movie look like it had no idea what it wanted to be. Looked a lot like True Grit but in a completely different setting.You gotta be kidding me. Those theatrical trailers made it look FUCKING AMAZING.
On that point: In the theatrical trailers, I noticed the horse had arrows in its rump as it runs off the cliff. In the YouTube version of that trailer, there are no arrows. In the movie, the arrows were there.
It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's definitely my kind of movie.Damn. Now I have to see it. My wife and I both agreed the trailers made the movie look like it had no idea what it wanted to be. Looked a lot like True Grit but in a completely different setting.
Oh well. If it's as good as you say then it'll be worth it in the end.
It'd be about the same tone as the ping except it was a constant ... it did fade in and out occasionally, but wasn't a ping. My wife is hyper-sensitive to that kind of stuff because of her tinnitus. Normally it doesn't bother me, but this one went on for so long it was driving me nuts.That ping noise? Boy, I don't remember that at all. I guess I could see being annoyed though if you were not into the movie.
Probably will be watching The Fall myself soon.Watched The Fall (season 2) - 9/10: Yeah, it probably was even better than season 1, which is surprising because I thought the way the story was progressing there was no way it could be. Looks like there may be a season 3 as well; can't wait! Gillian Anderson rules; such an awesome character!
I am also about 3 episodes into The Bridge (Bron/Broen): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1733785/?ref_=nv_sr_1 which is great! The two leads are excellent and it's a cool procedural/mystery. Really digging it.
I thought the ending was what made it good.Sicario 8.5/10
This was a lot different than I anticipated from the previews. It was very good overall. The ending wasn't what I expected at all. That's why I gave it the 8.5. I think with a different ending it would be closer to a 10/10.
Psych is a cheesy campy show, but it has quite a bit of charm. i would say it is kind of like Chuck. It is like most procedurals where the 'same' thing happens every episode though. Something to watch here or there. Funny thing is those 2 make cameos together in all sorts of movies and tv shows since the series ended.Finished season 1 of The Bridge (9.5/10): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1733785/ Incredible show! Loved it. The characters were awesome plus it was fun working through the case with them. So pissed the second season is not on Netflix. :\
Started watching Psych. I thought the pilot was decent enough, but the next episode was not very good at all. Two episodes in and it's pretty darn cheesy; not sure I will stick with it.
I'd still give it a 7/10, but I went in expecting it to be Charlie Wilsons War II myself.i watched Bridge Of Spies http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3682448/reference
Tom Hanks plays a role very similar to Charlie Wilson, in the lawyer James Donovan, who is defending russian spy Rudolf Abel during the cold war, in particular the U-2 incident. This is a Steven Spielberg film.
Ok, so first of all, i know the story already. I know about the Berlin wall, the U-2 spy missions, communist witch-hunts, the Bridge of Spies, an'all that.
Tom Hanks is good, but he needs to be in a more .. fantastic environment, to deliver a good story.
Much of the supporting cast adheres to very specific, historically accurate characters, which again makes for an unexciting film. Sets are .. boring. Lighting is boring. Most of this film is boring, unnecessarily slow, and more boring.
Or, you can look at this as a great documentary about the cold war.
Pick your vote, 5/10 or 7/10 depending on how much you know and how much you expect.
Haha, ok good to know. Was considering checking it out to see what it was was like, but maybe I will spend my time on something else. The Euro one is great, you should give it a shot.when I saw you posted The Bridge I thought you meant the FX one, then I saw the link and it's the european one. the one on FX was terrible. the worst acting i've ever seen on a show from fx. worse than tyrant. i couldn't get passed that and gave up after about 6 or 7 episodes.
I LOVE the Swedish/Danish version so I started the FX remake and I agree, it's pretty awful.when I saw you posted The Bridge I thought you meant the FX one, then I saw the link and it's the european one. the one on FX was terrible. the worst acting i've ever seen on a show from fx. worse than tyrant. i couldn't get passed that and gave up after about 6 or 7 episodes.
The UK/French remake is much better. It's called The Tunnel since the first victim is found midway between England and France. It diverges from the FX version in a number of ways but the overall arch of the story is similar. My guess is that it probably follows the original version more closely. Half of it is in subtitles though.I LOVE the Swedish/Danish version so I started the FX remake and I agree, it's pretty awful.
That is why I have always skipped it. That and the fact the cover art seems to support that type of story. It's always looked so unappealing to me, but I will try to check it out based on your recommendation.i would really like you all to try to watch Intouchables, it's an astounding film.
spoilers: is does NOT play the sob story of the crippled guy, and it does not either play the sob story of the ghetto black who is a criminal becuz black ppl mmk?
watch it, it's awe inspiring.
