I could definitely go for more done in its style.

Wreck it Ralph was better than I expected. It was about what I hoped it would be though. Was actually super impressed by the animated short at the beginning. it was cute. made me wanna find a lady and throw paper airplanes at her.

Yeah that's not quite as charming as you think, once the restraining orders start flying in, in paper airplane form.

Just watched Green Mile for the first time. My face for the last 20ish minutes:
Seriously, Frank Darabont turned in career best work and Michael Clarke Duncan just owns that movie.
Anyway, yeah, great movie.

I watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and it was okay. It's pretty intense and really holds your attention. My only problem is, I find Daniel Craig so bland as an actor. Don't know why. He just doesn't really do much for me.
Watched The Descendants too. George Clooney is pretty good at just playing normal people I guess. I liked it.

Go watch Daniel Craig in Road to Perdition. He was great. I feel like everyone is just concerned with using him super stoicly since his mediocre Bond movies, though I haven't seen Fincher's Dragon Tattoo.
In line with that, I bought Road to Perdition on blu ray seemingly ages ago and finally got around to a re-watch.
Just as good as I remember, which is really, really, really good.

Casino Royale is not freaking mediocre.
Quantum might be, but that wasn't Craig's fault.
11-08-2012, 06:00 PM
'Cause Sam Mendes (of Road to Perdition) directed it (Skyfall)!

Love Quantum, but it can't hold a wineglass to CR and the shaky cam was pretty dumb.

Credit where credit is due, he is good in Road to Perdition. Forgot that one. Feel like he plays a fairly minor role though.

Something about chasing someone on a crane in Bolivia after a poker tournament in Haiti that leads to a big show down in a desert after sinking a building in Venice? It's been a while since I watched either though so I don't know.

I have the same issue, despite having seen Casino Royale at least twice since theatres. It stems from the manic, frenzied pace of the films, I think. Though the globe trotting escapist fantasy isn't new to the property by any means.
Craig played a supporting role in Perdition, but an important one and did it well. I forgot that was him at all who played that role given the types of roles he's been nestled into since.

Yeah, but the whole point was Bond was being groomed, and on a personal scale, refined. This was Bond before he was THE Bond, all raw materials and hating the idea that he went from being a Naval officer to a wetwork guy. He's thuggish, but for a good chunk of the movie, he's quite "soft" in terms of personality.

Might check out Argo, has anyone seen it?

What the fuck is this shit?
Seriously what the FUCK is this bullshit?
Why are the zombies a god damn tidal wave?
11-09-2012, 06:33 AM
That's what the film is going to be like...?

CGI looks awful.
I Am Legend awful.
