  • Yeah, yeah- agreed!  I like the shooting style too.  Have fun with the rest of it.  Most people loved it.

    American Horror Story (the 1st 13 episodes) was awesome on FX...now waiting to see when the next 13 episodes start.

    Jessica Lange is fantastic on this show.

    Just finished Black Swan. Ok that was lame. Some creepy and gross parts but very lame.

    If Natalie portman would have said, "Ani?" it would have been perfect.

    My son really liked "Real steel" (fighting robots with Hugh Jackman). I saw the last Mission Impossible and it was Ok but a bit too much Tom Cruise for my taste.
    On TV I started to watch Terra Nova: what can I say ? I like dinosaurs...

    I also just finished the Power Metal episode on VH1. Wow. I want to laugh and cry. The marching band playing The Final Countdown was hilarious. I love how Yngwie didn't want to show up.

    I was disappointed that they didn't cover death and black metal. The most important developments in metal in the past 20 years, and it wasn't touched.

    I watched the extended version of Fellowship Of The Ring today for the first time with a couple of friends after I haven't seen the original cut in a very long time. What a masterpiece, seriously the best fantasy series ever made. Extended cut adds some nice scenes the flesh some stuff out, nothing too critical though. Still, I'd recommend it to fans, It's longer but I wasn't bored for a second. Then again, I love that kind of stuff  :tongue:

    Revisiting Jeeves & Wooster. Brilliant British comedy.

    I spit on your grave.  The first half is a complacent realistic rendition of the violent rape of a young woman by a bunch of white trash guys, and the second half is the ridiculously irrealistic gory revenge of said woman.  Overall, nauseating.  Or maybe I've just missed the point.

    It's not a cinematographic highlight. It is what it is, a seventies exploitation movie. As such, it's better than most actually.

    It was shot in 2010, but it seems it's a remake of a '70s movie, indeed.  I haven't seen the '70s version. It could have been a strong movie (some sort of equivalent of a Slayer song) but in its current form, I think it is not. The director seriously missed an opportunity IMO. 

    The trailer doesn't show much:

    I prefer Last House on the Left, by a mile. Unrealistic, but the over the top stuff is balanced by a soundtrack with a sick yet refreshing sense of humor.

    Well, I've only seen the original. And that may be more graphic. Probably coarser.

    Watched Pygmalion, Oscar winner from 1938 the other day. I think I have never seen a film where they managed to screw up so much in the last minute of what was otherwise a brilliant film. On the other side of comedy, I'm finally going to watch Airplane! tonight.
