Re: The Adventures of Tintin (D: Spielberg, 2011): The Reviews Thread

I'm a huge fan of TinTin .. I hesitantly anticipated the movie, hoping it wouldn't be a mess, but stay true to the spirit of the books.

Spielberg and Jackson were partially successful.

Re: Portishead--First U.S Tour in 13 Years!! (2011)

I saw both concerts at the Hammerstein (NYC), and I was blown away. The band played with that perfect combination of delicacy and raw power. Beth Gibbons' voice .. wow.

I'd easily rate this as up...

DVD Talk review of 'Hanna' (Blu-ray)

I read William Harrison's DVD review of Hanna at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=51135 and...

... I'd agree with the rating. An easy 4.5 stars. Pushing 5 stars in fact.

Re: Album by Album: Peter Gabriel

My feelings as well. I really liked the 1st album. Still do.
Hated the 2nd album, and pawned it off on someone else very quickly.

Re: Does the Wire take a while to get going?

I couldn't get into The Shield.

It took me just a few episodes to really get into The Wire.
And it gets better as the series develops over the seasons.

I would easily rate The Wire as the...

Re: Weeds -- Season Finale -- "Theoretical Love Is Not Dead" -- 11/15/10

and? Where to now?

I really does feel like the series finale.
But they have it billed as the season finale. But I can't see where they can possibly go with this now.

Re: Favorite all-time song?

Van Der Graaf - Cat's Eye / Yellow Fever (running)

This is off their Quiet Zone / Pleasure Dome album, which is my choice as my desert island disc. The one album I simply will never tire of.

Re: Any Shriekback fans?

My Spine Is The Bassline .. is the song that caught me from the start.

That they had the bass-player from Gang Of Four also meant I just had to check Shriekback out.

Re: Impressive Moments in Lackluster Movies

I was going to mention the same thing.
I am borderline on actually getting the Blu-ray disc for that scene.
The rest of the movie is a bit of a yawn.

Re: DVD Talk reviews for Rachel Getting Married ..

I didn't say the camera work was careless. I said "deliberately careless". Meaning, I know that it was intended for effect. I just hate it.

None of the reviews mention that this movie has some of the most tiring and intrusive handheld camera work.

Re: Blockbusters Stock Nosedives - Bankruptcy Possible

I despise Blockbuster for their pre-Netflix habit of charging $5 late fee per day. Just a few hours late on the day .. you know, stuff happens, and wham! $5 per disc.

My first reaction was that Open Range had to be listed here.

Way of the Gun, is also a good one, especially for the slow chase gunfight. That makes it very unusual in cinema.

Anyway, the DVD Talk review has piqued my interest even more in seeing this now.
But I wonder if it will be as overhyped and dull as Syriana.
