Re: Movies you enjoyed, but have zero replay value for you

Ditto to "Argo". As far as recent fare goes, I would have to say "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Even after two sittings, I can already feel myself growing weary of the dead space in between the...

Re: Box Office July 5-7 2013: The Lone Ranger is taken out behind the barn and shot

Good point! But didn't some posit the same argument for Superman? :)

I think "Lone Ranger" could have succeeded, but the marketing tried to shape a legitimate action Western into a sardonic...

Re: Disney buys LucasFilm for $4B in cash & stock

We have Han Solo. That's enough for the sardonic comments. I don't need Whedon giving every last character funny retorts every five seconds.

But then again...he kept himself in check with "The...

Re: Breaking Bad --> Season 5.1 Finale --> "Gliding Over All" --> 9/2/12

"If only Walt had some better magazines in the bathroom."

Funny, funny, funny. I can foresee a dying Walter reminiscing over how we he was undone because Hank had to take a crap. :)

Re: JAWS question - The scene with the wife's holiday roast

Love the discussion thus far.

Retreading back to the initial question: I think the reason the length was apparently shorter was probably because Bruce was submerged deeper. He seems like the kind...

Re: Nicholson VS DeNiro

I would argue that Nicholson played various versions of the Nicholson archetype save for one: About Schmidt. That was truly that film where Jack was able to undo his persona--confident, charming,...

Re: The Harry Dean Stanton appreciation thread

Under-rated Christmas gem--"One Magic Christmas" with Stanton as the guardian angel. :thumbsup:

Re: Digital copy codes shouldn't expire

So...not to create the illusion that I love "Ultraviolet", but I do like the idea that you redeem the code once and you can re-download the film on multiple devises without having to worry about...

Re: Movies that criticize Television

When it pertains to how television devalues the news, then Network and Good Night, and Good Luck are the best--and too great movies in their own right.

Re: Fincher or Nolan?

I think Nolan still has room to grow as a filmmaker.

Despite Heath Ledger, Nolan doesn't always extract the best in his actors the way Fincher does. I've not always loved Fincher's movies, but...

Re: The Avengers vs The Dark Knight Rises

I agree it was about "stuff". But, inevitably, it amounts to nothing. Nolan attempts to raise ideas and relate to current events. But is the movie vilifying the upper 1%, the 99%, or both? I love...

Re: The Avengers vs The Dark Knight Rises

P.S. All three movies had some severe logic problems.

I know these are comic book films, but are we really expected to overlook the holes in Bane's scheme, or Bruce Banner's sudden ability to...

Re: The Avengers vs The Dark Knight Rises

I actually like Spider-Man the best. There, I said it. I'm sure no else agrees. Don't hate.

However, between the two, I have to go with Avengers. TDR disappointed.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan, 2012) The Reviews Thread

These are all very valid arguments. My wife and I had the same response--and we also did our homework the week before. Without sounding too arrogant, I think that the problems with the film will be...

Re: The Dark Knight Rises (Nolan, 2012) The Reviews Thread

I have to say ladies and gents that I was disappointed.

I felt the film was extremely cold and bloated. The last five minutes were a nice way to tie the series to a close, but I can't ignore the...

Re: Pick your boxset

I seriously doubt it. They may repackage earlier versions of the DVD, but they will stack alternatives to bluray for those families who don't have one. I'm particularly surprised that most of these...

Re: So...who's watching Batman Begins and The Dark Knight this week?

Rewatched both recently. I remember watching "Batman Begins" four times in the theater. I was overjoyed by how well it turned out--how it dampered the bad taste of "Batman and Robin". Rewatching...

Pick your boxset

So I recently commented on the return of the boxset (or "revenge"). I'd like to know which boxset you are most excited about purchasing this Holiday season (if you had to choose one, like me, who...

Re: The Amazing Spider-Man (Webb, 2012) The Reviews Thread

You do raise some valid arguments, but I would wager that the suit creation was sidestepped to avoid showing the same montage that was in the first film (which, btw, shows both Parkers should go into...

Re: Which PG-13 movie is okay for kids actually under 13?

Great posts. I'm loving this discussion so far. In reference to "Nightmare 3". That was the first film where I ever saw a nude woman. I have no doubt my mother would have been mortified if she...

Re: Which PG-13 movie is okay for kids actually under 13?

I'm getting a lot of posts about "Raiders", which was actually the third Indy film I watched during my youth. My first was "Temple" which makes "Raiders" look like "The Music Man". Does anyone have...

Kids-in-mind is a great website. This beckons the question, is the MPAA even relevant?
