I'm so mad I didn't go to see it in the theater. It was completely ****ing awesome. Like it was right out of 1987.

HAVE A LOVELY DAY. ASSHOLE!
I loved both Escape Plan and Last Stand. Your right, they were both glorious throwbacks to a different era.

I hope Arnie is allowed to continue making this stuff, but judging by the box office, it doesnt look like it. Hes probably headed "straight to DVD" soon.

That type of action flick just isnt what is in vogue anymore. It is what it is.....

Arnold is still very popular overseas. Escape Plan grossed 137 million dollars. Total budget was only 50 million.

Beautiful live sets, cinematography, the acting is no joke either... a true sight for my sore eyes, so why did it bomb?

The EXTREMELY sad realization hit me a few minutes ago that the "wild west" no longer holds any fascination or mystery for todays kids, its just dead to them... "horses and trains, old time guns and cowboy hats... I'm bored Dad".

No lie, this movie, and what became of it... feels like a true passing of the torch, kids simply don't give a shit about this kind of old stuff anymore, they couldn't be bothered, its somehow too far removed from them.

This movie should've been HUGE, it wasn't, and its not my generations fault... but it still makes me sad... it seems like all these kids today want is some bleep bloop blarp bullshit, no soul, no fascination with history... unless its some "old" Nintendo game.

Not to blame the kids, it happens... but its sad beyond words to see the western die before my eyes.
I watched it last night and it was pretty good, it didn't feel like it was 2 and a half hours.

I'll be honest, I thought it had a really smart plot. I went in thinking it was going to be a lot of dumb action, but it had some really fun layers. I'm sure some of the science was sketchy but it made sense to me.

Really made me wish Stallone and Arnie had teamed up in the 90s.

Agreed. And it was short. only 1 hour and 24 minutes.

Watched Bad Words and really liked it.

If you liked Bad Santa it's the same style of humor...

Perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen.



It was like watching Mike Meyers Cat in the Hat in a subtitled cheesy Hong Kong kung fu movie. Epic bad. I should be punished for watching the entire thing.

Got around to Inside Llewyn Davis.

I honestly think the Coens are now the new Scorsese.

"Oh, they'll put out AWESOME shit every year. We'll reward them when there's no flavor of the week to promote. They'll always be here and always rock. No hurry.'

Chef Boy Ar Dee Cheese Pizza? In a Box. Just sitting on a shelf? Genius.

ILD was every bit as good as Fargo, NCfoM, Raising Arizona, Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing, True Grit, A Serious Man . . . . etc, etc. But this was the year of slavery torture porn.

Maybe I have a soft spot for folk music. But when they busted out '500 Miles' I was a puddle. It just, like Pete Seeger, Odetta, and Woody Guthrie, creates a place where you HAVE TO BE. You might not even know why. But it's a home you never even knew existed until that moment.

Then Vinnie Delpino breaks the mood HILARIOUSLY.

A couple of things;

It's amazing that with Neil Patrick Harris blowing up everywhere, Max Casella disappears for decades only to surface in two of the best films last year, ILD and Blue Ivy. It's truly a mini-McConaissance, just in terms of smart roles in quality films.

It's also eerie to have Llewyn's story on the big screen the same year Lena/Hannah has her big GQ 'I'm too talented to work here' blowup on Girls on the small screen. Soulmates separated by 40 years. And Adam Driver connecting the two?

Audiences would be well advised to recall that this is the same directing/writing staff that colored Oh' Brother Where Art Thou' in sepai, glorifying all the music that this film displays the seamy, but still transcendentally beautiful, underbelly of.

The Soundtrack to Inside Llewyn Davis was great. Made the movie for me.

I don't even remember when I said that, but I'm 100% sure I was being sarcastic.

Eden Lake was really well done, surprised I had never caught that one. Feces covered Kelly Reilly is going to have me fapping hard.
