"...not like the time that I was afraid that my car would break down while crossing the Rockies."
What if your car broke down while crossing the Rockies ing the winter? Then you’d have something to fear.
Great job chasing TH around the deck & turning a regulation drama into a farce !
Next time remind him that his best acting so far was on Bosom Buddies (well, maybe BIG ) .
Im pretty surprised Tom didn't just slap you and challenge you to a duel Wyatt. His answer was prety thoughtful and articulate fore being off the cuff. Its too bad dueling is illegal these days. Think about what a cool story "dueling the Hanks" would be. I bet you could write it with out ever having to duel someone;) Lex
What a terrible review. So Ryan Stone should just be some robot who doesn't know anybody and nobody knows/cares about her? That's realistic? Please. Her backstory serves to make her human, which of course she is, just like any astronaut who conducts missions in space. They all bring a past, a family of some sort, etc. to space with them.
Can Tony Danza match his performance in Going Ape?
JGL has nothing on the Gorgeous One...
This movie had all the elements for a great ribald comedy, along the lines of Tom Jones or the early Woody Allen flicks. The guy is addicted to porn, his apartment, his car, his buddies, his family and the church. He falls in love with a manipulative woman who sees the man she can build out of the raw material - but not the man he is. He has to come to grips with his depersonalization of the women around him and learn to truly interact. With an all-star cast including the wonderful actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza, and some wonderful direction and acting; it should be a good movie. It should be, but it isn't. It's a comedy that isn't funny. After just a few minutes I was repeating to myself, "Alright, we get it. He's addicted to porn. Get on with the story. Show me a movie." But it fails. It takes 1-1/4 hours of the 1-1/2 hour movie to get to the story. It's Joseph Gordon-Levitt's first job of writing and first job of directing. OK, so it wasn't awful but it was a comedy without laughs. He should have stuck to one or two positions but he falls down on the writing/directing/starring thing. Miss this one... it's TOO boring.
A compelling film that's well worth seeing. The stars, Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, are young people to watch for future greatness. Superb acting. I thought it was well-written, it was directed and edited perfectly, the acting was great and the screenplay was wonderful. What wasn't to like? I was quite impressed. It fully lives up to the hype and the positive reviews.
I thought it would be a cute movie: a woman who's obsessed with Jane Austen goes to a British mansion where one is immersed in Austen novel imagery and characters. Presumably our heroine finds romance and some comedy. Well it was cute, but it could have been so much more. There could have been better dialogue, more character exposition, better acting, and better jokes. It's not an awful movie - it is fun. But it certainly isn't a great movie. The postscript/epilogue that plays as the credits start was better than the whole film and the comic shots playing during the credits were far funnier than anything that happened during the film. Bret McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords fame), although a 2nd lead, steals the film and shows remarkable acting talent for his small role. Wait for cable.
This film has a lot of problems. Jug Report tackles one of them: "bust shaming": http://wp.me/p3INSa-5E
The Butler was a great story that needed to be told and needs to be seen. It was not the strongest film in the acting dept. but it was a stirring and moving statement nevertheless. The movie is bigger than the performances. I like the switch between live people and newsreels/TV reporting to tell the histories. I like the sets and the costumes. I like the feel of the sweep of time and changes - the changes to the people and the changes to America. Everybody should see this film; especially the young folks who do not know what went before or who see dates and places and cannot put a human face on the events.
Lots of hating in these comments for such a benign article about a couple of guys that want more out of life than what they see in their future.
They are working, paying taxes I assume, they are not criminals (well, maybe breaking some drug laws but most of us have) and they are trying to build a storyline for their lives that they can use to break in to the entertainment industry.
Sure, there is a certain desperation to it all but don't all dreams come with a certain stench of desperation until they come true.
I hope it all works for them.
By the way, saw the movie, thought it was silly and a step up from child porn. Korine creeps me out but to each his own.
One might think that Woody Allen had produced another comedy from the TV ads and trailers. There's nothing funny about this fine drama. There will be the inevitable (and deserved) comparisons to Streetcar Named Desire. Unlike Streetcar, this isn't a melodrama, it's a tragedy based on the harm Jasmine does to herself in her attempted recovery from mental illness. However, in Blue Jasmine's last scene Simone Signoret's vulnerability and "other worldly" distance from reality in Ship of Fools was brought to mind. There were folks laughing in the theater - and there are depictions of the absurdities of life and people - but I found the laughter jarring and ill-conceived. I kept wondering what the hell was wrong with these people for laughing at things so sad and so not meant to be funny. The scenes generating a few laughs were hard-hitting looks at the realities of just living. Cate Blanchett's performance is so perfect, so Oscar-worthy, it will be hard to even notice some wonderful work done by a fine supporting cast. This movie will hit you hard, even hours after leaving the theater, but you must see the phenomenal Blanchett work in this film.
What a wonderful farce! Imagine Monty Python meets It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and you'll just be touching the surface of this insane romp. Picture this: the ground crew (Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz in cameo appearances) at the airport are more into each other than their jobs and they mess up big time. The plane takes off and the landing gear on one side of the plane is shot. The economy class passengers don't know because the stewardesses in economy always drug their passengers to keep them quiet and so they won't be bothered but one of them accidentally drugged herself and the other stewardesses, too. The plane isn't going from Spain to Mexico, it's circling in Spain trying to find an empty runway to accommodate the emergency landing. In business class there are an assortment of the wildest characters you can imagine, drunk stewards who ply them with liquor and drugs to take the edge off (but with a side effect of increasing libido). Because one of the stewards has "loose lips" there's an amazing amount of plot exposition and character backgrounds to help the audience get fully vested in the story and the people. Hilarity ensues. There are some belly laughs and tons of chuckles and even some touching moments. This film is not for the prudish - there's lots of sex in business class and in the cockpit - but since it's so incredibly inventive and original and clever with so many unexpected plot twists; don't miss it. In Spanish with English subtitles.
I wish I'd seen this when it first came out so many months back. I wish it had been made and I'd seen it when I was little or a teen or even decades ago. There are few screenplays with such brilliant writing. The words, the concepts, the character exposition wash over you more like a tidal bore than a wave. It's too trite to say it's breathtaking, but it does take your breath away - and your heart. A terribly clever plot, a list of Hollywood royalty as the stars (even in cameos and minor roles), wonderful acting and the beauty of Paris (past and present) and you've got a truly great film. It has so much to say about the human condition and so much to say to people everywhere. A slow start belies how important the movie really is. This is one to watch again and again and again.
Always nice to have a fairly civil debate. If you are ever in LA, give me a shout. First drink is on me.
"California had 100 years and is home to every major studio, yet they still need to offer a tax credit to keep production in the state."
Now that's your best point so far.
But it's a different age and Cali shot itself in the foot in many ways...on the other hand, you'll never go broke betting that the Ga. pols will not screw up.
The economy is the deciding factor. If it stays on an upward trend, and state black ink continues... Laissez les bons temps rouler.
