Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Abrams, 2015) — The Reviews Thread

Glad you could clear that up for us. :lol:

As someone who has only seen the original trilogy two or three times - and who thinks that only the first two are any good - I thought this was pretty...

Re: It Follows (2014)

Going to a midnight screening of this at Sundance. I quite enjoyed the director's (non-horror) Myth of the American Sleepover, and I've also heard really good things about this one.

Re: 2015 Academy Award Nominees are.....

"Princess Kaguya" is my favorite movie of the year - and it's the most beautiful new movie I've seen in several years - so here's hoping that wins in its category. But it probably won't.

Re: The Last 5 Years (2014, D: LaGravenese), S: Kendrick, Jordan)

I saw a local (live) production of this a few months ago. I liked it a lot - it has a really gorgeous score - but it's also one of those shows I don't think I could watch very often. It's just so...

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I do wish there were more new titles (only two this month - and last month), but all the upgrades are favorites that I don't already own on DVD, so I won't complain. It'll be especially great to see...

Cool month. I've been waiting to own a copy of Breaking the Waves, and more Dreyer and Siegel films are always welcome.

So... We're finally going to get that Picnic at Hanging Rock upgrade.

Re: Joan Fontaine passes away at 96

And her performance in that film is one of the very greatest in film history, in my opinion. (Her performance in Letter from an Unknown Woman is nearly as great.)

She did live a very long life,...

It's being released at the art house here in Salt Lake City next week, so it's at least getting something of a national release.

On the other hand, it was banned in Idaho...

Not surprisingly, I also really enjoyed this.

Re: Gravity (Cuarón, 2013) — The Reviews Thread

My problem with Armond White isn't that he dislikes popular films (I often agree with his "contrarian" opinion) - it's that he's a terrible writer and he tends to spend more time condemning people...

Re: The Official Twilight Time Blu-ray Thread

Well, movies on Blu-ray aren't really an "essential" product, so it probably doesn't qualify under the technical definition of price gouging anyways.

But I think it's simple economics: Some...
