Yah, speed's posts are good reading for sure.


I finally caught Shame in the theater tonight. My first impressions: the cinematography was such a joy to behold. Almost every shot seemed so beautifully constructed. The film's color palette really lent to the overall atmosphere. Carey Mulligan was OK in it - at times I felt as though she was over-acting. Perhaps my main issue with her character was an inability to empathize with her hysterical cellphone breakdown. Then again, that might've actually been the point: seeing it in the same way Fassbender did, reacting with the same strange mix of disgust, loathing, and sympathy. Fassbender was simply flawless in it and if he loses out in the oscar race to some shmuck (clooney in descendants or pitt in moneyball) i'm gonna be very displeased.

good to hear you liked it. I've been hearing positive things about 'Shame' especially for up and coming UK director Steve McQueen. As for the best actor award, the only person I think I wouldn't be displeased Fassbender to lose to is Jean DuJardin('The Artist').

I'd love to see Shame but I need to wait one more month. Sometimes I hate living in Central Europe where we get a lot of the good films weeks later. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo just premiered last Thursday - a very good analytical film, I liked it a lot. Though I'm not sure if Fincher should be wasting time doing adaptations of airport-fiction novels when he's pretty much at his best right now.

I do agree with this. I do feel he's just mailing it in since 'Zodiac'. We'll see what happens since he has plenty of projects on his plate the next couple of years.

Can anyone identify this movie? I can remember that it was low budget and it was set in a prison. Basically it centered around a prisoner that is building an air balloon to escape the prison. And in the end he does lift off in the air balloon weeks past and he returns to the jail. He tells his friends that are inmates that he does not belong outside in the normal society.

Anybody? My only other memory is that all the actors are unknowns but they acted extremely good for being a bunch of delta force commandos.

Saw Hugo yesterday, was pretty good. I liked the film history in it. Seeing those films, like train entering station and women leaving factory was pretty cool on a big screen.

Oh yeah, you got it right. Thanks for that.

Did you know they were delta force commandos?

I thought Brad did a great job in Moneyball. Not Oscar-worthy, but a very good performance.

No. A year that has The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and possibly Cloud Atlas can't be bad for Hollywood.


Also, there's been talk about Brad Pitt and Moneyball but I think the best thing about the film is its script, or rather the way it goes beyond the cliches of sport dramas and transforms the film into something more than that. The statistics are literally more important than the players so when we see the team set the new win streak record it's not an emotive climax of the story but just another piece of data. The story then goes on for quite a while and I know this was a bit confusing for some of the viewers.

It's the same schema Steven Zaillian used for the new Fincher film which was also more about the process of investigation rather than the investigation itself - even such mundane activities like going to the office or getting food was shot that way.

This is the most important quality of these films, I think, and I hope it doesn't get overdone because I like it.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey should be pretty interesting too. So at least December of 2012 won't be a wash
