Like anyone gives a sh*t about your review of Midnight in Paris where you cried in your bucket of popcorn all by yourself last Friday night.

Just watched The Tree of Life with Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. It was trippy and not so much a linear narrative, but a visual expression of how one comes to be who they are (I think). It's deeply philosophical and beautiful to watch, but the lack if a standard-issue storyline can be frustrating. Brad Pitt is great in it as a beaten-down father in the 1950's who, in the course of trying to prepare his sons for the inherent miseries of life, ends up making Sean Penn a ridiculously depressed (if wealthy) adult. A long movie, definitely not for everybody, but overall a great film if you appreciate artistry and ambiguity in lieu of nuts-and-bolts storytelling.

Speaking of which, Biutiful--Another long movie, this one with subtitles, that should earn Javier Bardem an Oscar. He's a terminally ill man desperately trying to provide for his two kids before he dies. I watched it, impressed but not blown away, for two hours, then found myself weeping like a baby when it ended. A great movie for those with patience.

I saw Tree of Life, and I'd like to see it again. There's a lot to take in. My son was with me, and he hated it. There were people grumbling in the theater, "I hope it's finally over." Definitely not for everyone.

Rumor has it that the director's interested in making a 6 hour director's cut version. :blink:

In the meantime, I plan on checking out other Terrance Malick flicks. The Thin Red Line and New World are available streaming on Netflix, I believe.

I'm definitely going to have to check out Tree of Life again. I totally wasn't prepared for what it was. I knew it was gorgeous, but i was still like, "WTF dinosaurs?"

I saw Thin Red Line when it came out. It's a really contemplative, slow-moving war movie. I'd like to check that one out again--I went in expecting Platoon and came out scratching my head.

He was nominated last year for his role in this movie -- Of course he lost to the stuttering King

Not trying to be nitpicky here.

Oh snap. Good looking out. I saw both of them. I thought King's Speech was a little over-rated, but I can see why they gave it to Firth.

I have Netflix online and just watched Highlander again after about 20yrs. Dated, but still cool.

If you're young enough you haven't seen it...watch it.

Someone in your house needs to cook the food a little longer.

Not as much a volume issue as it is surface area.

Ip Man, the scene where Donnie Yen takes on ten black belts is one of the best Kung Fu sequences of all time. And epics simply do not get better than 13 Assassins.

Did you see Ip Man 2? Simply brilliant. The final fight scene was breathtaking. Ip Man was great, too. 13 Assassins was the shiznit. I didn't think I'd ever see a battle scene like that made in contemporary cinema--so patient and unwilling to just give in to the quick, generic, balletic fight scenes that plague so many movies these days.

Saw that tonight. It felt like every Woody Allen movie of the last twenty years (except for the great Match Point). We get it, Woody: wealthy people are vapid and wry. Doesn't make them interesting. Glad to see Owen Wilson in something legit, though.
