Re: “From favorites to fight-starters, die-hard Nashville movie lovers discuss the film year 2013

Stoker film is very well done, there are some frames that you remain in the mind long, but the subject is suffering badly. And the character development is absolutely incredible, I was dumbstruck. Suspense, fear, more tension, the film is a good thriller, but hard to swallow. If it's too hard sometimes, too sadistic. I like how it ends, not necessarily in terms of choosing which writer did to end the story, but because the action reaches its climax and you leave with a bitter taste that evolved in a way, and the end was that the nut on the wall. Not at the end is very appropriate way in which to place the power game. Actors must also be praised,
Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman surprisingly good roles. I highly recommend the best film in 2013

Re: “In Spike Jonze's forward-gazing Her, artificial intelligence evolves toward actual heartache

On the other hand, here's a "review" posted at the IMDB, and shows why IMDB is such an endless source of laughs:

"Worst movie ever

"This is the worst movie I have ever seen!! this was sick and disturbing to think that some sicko wrote this disgusting film. writer of this movie needs serious help! I understand technology is making progress but this was just a perverted and sick minded person's thought. I was told to come watch this for my sociology class without warning of how sick it was and would have walked out after the first 10 minutes if it was not for a grade! I was embarrassed to have been sitting in the movie theater watching it especially with my mother sitting with me. I do not and will not ever recommend this movie to anyone else. I hope this does not win any awards I hope there are some people in the world that still feel the same way. This was weird and inappropriate movie material!"

'Nuff said!

Re: “The Coen Brothers navigate a world of hurt in The Belcourt's two-week retrospective

Coen Brothers ( Joel - director Ethan - producer / writer ) the subject of worship among moviegoers for a while . Not just because they are pioneers of independent film , but it also applies in their feature films , a recipe known for her literary results : defamiliarizarea . You even say that their films are unique history and postmodern American cinema : take recognizable elements - the western, film noir , romantic comedy or even the thriller - and reassembles them into productions that are also parodies and tributes to a certain kind of film. But ask in significant filmography brothers , what is accessible local cinema lover ?
Who to blame for this failure ? Coen brothers to come who want to convert to Hollywood? If you listen to them , in a recent interview at Cannes , saying that he wanted to be " general audience " in the first ( ? ) . Or fault of co - writers - Robert Ramsey and Matthew Stone - which is a major change for the Coen brothers , before fully responsible for their scenarios . However , the signature Coen 's almost invisible in this film.

Re: “Peter Jackson's latest Hobbit installment puts everyone on Smaug alert

Distribution is excellent one. Martin Freeman is a fantastic Bilbo, Richard Armitage surprised me very pleasantly interpreting it to Thorin and Sir Ian McKellen is always a pleasure to see him again in the role of Gandalf sage. Directed by Peter Jackson is usual bus, with a special eye for detail and show New Zealand's landscapes are sublime and great cinematography.
Howard Shore agreements remain faithful previous trilogy with some more Celtic influences this time, the visuals and sound are impeccably crafted by the folks at Weta, Still further, I recommend a good movie to see with the whole family

Re: “Celebrating George Kuchar, the movies' poet of outrageous camp delirium

That was a blast! Not only were the films great — the best overheated pulp dialogue this side of Russ Meyer (dig that extended "egg metaphor" conversation!), plus direction way more artful than Kuchar's often given credit for — but the intros by James Cathcart and Jason Shawhan were performance art in themselves, and the pre/post-show mixtapes by Ben Swank were like being inside Scorsese's jukebox.

Pretty amazing this was happening in Nashville — but you hear that a lot these days.

Re: “Gatsby eludes Baz Luhrmann's ginormous grasp, but dazzling DiCaprio is an undeniable pleasure

A stunning film , colorful , extravagant , which impresses from the first stage. Baz Luhrmann's approach , which has been condemned by many , is one of the original as possible , managing to put this version of the "Great Gatsby " among my favorite films . Although I would have liked to hear some more jazz to me in the mood of the '20s , the music chosen not gave me the feeling that it would be wrong , on the contrary it brings a great addition of the entire film ( Lana's voice is - downright mesmerizing ) .
Peincipal character Nick ( Leonaro DiCaprio ) sets and costumes definitely deserves an Oscar - brilliant , learned exactly in that period . Parties ( a bit exaggerated and vulgar ) , the people , the whole atmosphere , make the viewer to empathize with Nick and taste with him the American dream and the magic of New York and '20s .
Performance is largely flawless actors actor Leonardo DiCaprio makes entry easy ( "You see ... I'm Gatsby " ) , but its role is far from simple.
"The Great Gatsby " I left a good impression , although I did not expect . It's a beautiful film , thanks to impressive scenery extravagant original in approach necessarily seen

Re: “From favorites to fight-starters, die-hard Nashville movie lovers discuss the film year 2013

Mr. Pink said: "Good luck with avoiding CGI mass destruction."

One way to avoid it: stick to the Belcourt's offerings (except for the blockbuster sequel showings).

Re: “From favorites to fight-starters, die-hard Nashville movie lovers discuss the film year 2013

Good stuff, gang. Always enjoy your year-end film discussion.

I agree with James about the midnight movies. I wish people would take a chance on some of these lesser known films now and again. I think my favorite Belcourt midnight movie was POSSESSION a couple of years ago. There wasn't a big crowd, but the people in attendance had the experience of a lifetime. I've rarely seen so many dazed looks on faces following a film. I'm still a bit discombobulated myself.


My "off the radar" discovery of the year was THE HISTORY OF FUTURE FOLK at the Nashville Film Festival. As much as I enjoyed the ridiculous humor of THIS IS THE END and ANCHORMAN 2, I think seeing FUTURE FOLK on the big screen with a lively crowd was the best time I had at the movies this year.
