Game Change

I just saw it, good movie, although it seemed quite sensationalized. Sarah Palin was painted as a crazy person and a control freak who not only didn’t know the first thing about national and international politics, but literally only cared about herself and how much attention she could get. John McCain was painted in a positive light, however, although he used more swear words than any other character in the movie which earned him a few negative points.

I can’t wait to see the little Asian-looking kid from City Island who loves fatties murder a bunch of people.

Speaking of which…I still need to watch City Island. That’s that one with Andy Garcia, right?

THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (Fincher remake)

I’ll let the leaked teaser speak for itself:

no fucking care. the book was shit. the first movie was shit. this will undoubtedly be shit as well.

I just think this trailer looks promising. Plus, Fincher is a good director. Of course, sometimes bad movies have good trailers, and sometimes good directors make poor movies. We’ll just have to wait and see.

This might cause your doubts to subside a little, Zero:

The script, which captures the novel’s bleak tone (its original Swedish title was Men Who Hate Women), was written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote Schindler’s List, and it departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending—the resolution of the drama—has been completely changed. This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian has improved on Larsson—the script’s ending is more interesting.

WWZ the movie

What the hell…based on the book but not?

Avoid it. See Exit Humanity instead. It’ll be far better. Hell even the trailer looks better.

"based on the book" means it will have zombies and a couple of character names.

According to what I’ve read, instead of UN Journalist interviewing survivors of the zombie war, it’s going to be BRAD PITT: UN SECRET AGENT jetting around from country to country saving the world.

Hell with it. I’m going to take one for the team. For you guys, I’m going to download and read the script and see once and for all what it looks like.

Goon

is a hilarious update to Slap Shot. Apparently based on a true story and full of gore and laughs. Worth checking out.

where can I DL this? I checked Kickasstorrents and didn’t see it there.

no avengers thread?

I’m more excited about this than any shit DC release. Oh, so tired of Super/Batman stories. Stop telling them plskthx.

Fantastic movie. Can’t wait for it to come out on Blu Ray.

I wasn’t planning on paying to see this movie until I read all of the amazing reviews. I was really surprised at how adored this movie was by critics, I was honestly expecting it to be more Hollywood garbage that hits big at the box office but bombs with critics and sucks as an overall movie.

Fringe?

So I’m starting from the beginning. Just picked up season one, watched the first episode… now I have to go back to HMV and buy season 2 and 3.

#1stworldproblems

then like every other show it starts to slide?

eh, the first season after they moved the show to friday nights wasn’t awesome. Then after that we sort of lost track of it. We lost interest after the first major story arc ended because the new/current one is kind of lame.
