    Just watched a short called "The Accountant." Had no idea why it won an academy award from the description on the cover. Well. Lol. It sure do put a whole 'nother spin on "creative accounting." I highly recommend it.

    I also recommend Butter. It was hilarious. I've actually seen it more than once and I don't watch many movies again after a viewing.

    I am thrilled Long Ranger didn't pull in big numbers. I don't know why, it doesn't really affect me in any way but Depp can't keep putting this crap out forever. Time to do something else. Maybe this will push him that way.

    New movies this week, the first three being ones already mentioned earlier (but with different trailers this time). Looks from the view counts that we're going to see another butt-kicking with the robots overpowering the grown-ups. Was surprised to see such a big difference in views for the first two.

    The first two look really good, can’t wait to see them. I had seen the trailer for The Hunt a few weeks back and it looks so good! And Terms and Conditions…might be pretty in it’s own (good) way.

    Dealin’ With Idiots looks like it could be really funny, a very good cast and I think it might be like the Christopher Guest movies with a lot of improvisation, so they probably had a lot of great takes to choose from, which means a lot of laughter for us in the audience. And Coffee Town I had no expectations for, but it looks like it could be quite good. Not sure I expected Josh Groban to be the funniest part of a comedy movie, either!

    Still Mine and the Killing Season definitely left me wanting, especially with those casts! With both trailers I thought, “what is this supposed to be about??” by the end. And as we’ve talked about with Johnny Depp recycling his onscreen persona over and over, how about Michael Cera? Are his fifteen minutes up?

    And of course I saved the worst for last. V/H/S 2 has such a bad trailer that I couldn’t even watch it all. And War Flowers might be the worst movie of the year. I swear that the director must have had a loved one in the hospital and the cast said, “just go, we’ll cover for you!” because it really looks like there was no director handling this movie...
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Hahaha I was hoping the same thing.

    And I agree with you about the head slap moments. Overall though, it was not as bad as I expected. It was the first zombie movie I saw. I'm well aware WWZ might not be a typical of the genre, but that was fun and well-paced, in my opinion.

    Whee PeterG! Tak for the heads-up on my man Mads! I think his acting is SO fine! Can't wait to see "the hunt" :-)

    Other film s on mylist: "captain Philips"-tom hanks, pirates, not a comedy.
    "Olympus has fallen"-only because antoine Fuqua directed.
    "Now you see me"-liked trailer.

    "Deadfall"-too long wait at library. Will dig thru my vhs tapes for films recorded but never watched. Came up with "belle du jour" and "Cyrano de Bergerac." Wish me luck I luv French films but the language lulls me to sleep. I think maybe when I was a wee lil baby my great grandmama sang French songs to me. Who really knows but tres charmant, oui? Hehe ;-)

    Cyrano is my favorite play. Which film version is it? Whichever it is, hope you enjoy it!

    I see TCM's Summer under the Stars lineup is out -- should I post it here, or start a new thread for it?

    I just screened "Pacific Rim" and interviewed the cast and crew.

    Two words: Blown away.

    Yes, it's "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" on steroids, but the special effects are mind-boggling. And talking to Guillermo del Toro, the man's vision is astounding.

    Total dude movie.

    Next up: "The Conjuring!"

    I feel a little offended when someone starts a new movie thread, but that's just my hang-up. People do seem to like the individual TCM threads. But moreso the x Days of Oscar month? Less familiar with Summer Under The Stars...what's it's theme? (Maybe this means it should have it's own thread... )

    They feature a different actor every day. It's another annual thing -- they do it every August.

    Still Mine is great. I saw it in my movie preview club in the winter. James Cromwell is just wonderful as is Gen Bujold, but Cromwell has the big part. Based on a true story, it is a great love story of real people.

    One big recommendation and one, "I think I really recommend this..."

    Rust and Bone (Marion Cotillard) - This was pretty much a perfect movie in my opinion. I checked to see if it won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and who beat Cotillard for Best Actress. It got no Oscar nominations!!! WTF??!! I think Cotillard was better in this than La Vie En Rose, but the real star of this movie is the writing and directing. It's almost like watching a documentary of these people's lives, but better than that because the script has just enough structure to make every minute so watch-able. Can't rave enough about this one.

    The other one I'm fairly sure I'm raving about () is Cloud Atlas. I started watching it late last night and had to fight to not stay up really late to finish watching it (it's almost three hours long). I didn't feel the movie dragged at any time, maybe that's because they had so many storylines happening at so many different time periods. Each scene moved quickly to the next, no time wasted. The reason I sound confused about recommending this one is because I don't really understand it....and don't really care about that! In the one DVD extra, Tom Hanks basically says the same thing. I guess he felt the project was so interesting and the script was so good that he didn't care about the need to fully understand everything because it was an incredible adventure to take part in. And I felt like that as a viewer.

    I know all white people like alike, but Gerard Butler and Channing Tatum REALLY ARE two different people!!

    Teaser trailer for How To Train Your Dragon 2. It doesn't reveal any plot, but it looks fantastic! And I'm generally not a fan of 3D, but dude, I HAVE to see this in 3D!
    Also, Hiccup got kind of hot.

    I'm seeing WWZ tomorrow.

    Pacific Rim was really good. Some cheesy lines and some not so great acting at times but it was nice to see an ORIGINAL movie for once. Not a sequel, remake, comic book, etc. If this is based on anything then I have never heard of it. The special effects are just amazing. Some of the fighting scenes were a little too close up and it could be hard to tell what you were even looking at but that seemed to either get better as the movie went on or I got used to it.

    World War Z rating from me: 3 out of 5 stars. I think I would've liked the original ending better, the way it is now felt a bit too, I don't know, convenient? Easy? But I still liked it, and for once I didn't find the 3D to be annoying at all.

    Fun fact: I can sound exactly like the zombies in this film.

    "The Hunter" with Willem Dafoe turned out to be really sad. I was surprised at that because 3/4 of the story seems to be following a standard, conventional action plot then wham! it twists and it's so sad what it sez about humanity.

    "NO" which looked so promising in the trailer has already put me to sleep TWICE. I'll try it again-maybe 3rd time is the charm?

    It did pick up, somewhat, in the back 1/3 or so, but it was still a bit of a disappointment to me. As a piece of recent political history it's quite fascinating, and I enjoyed seeing the actual campaign commercials -- from both sides -- but as a film it wasn't terribly well executed. In particular I found the human element completely lacking. I am glad I saw it though.

    I saw Monsters University and was really disappointed. They translated that college experience quite well into the Monsters world, but I didn't find much creativity in this work. Nothing surprised me. The only convincing "character" was Hardscrabble.
    Toy Story 3 or Wreck-It Ralph were so much better than this barely entertaining prequel.

    Even Despicable Me 2 was more creative.
