Doesn't Timothy Hutton in 'Ordinary People' look like Paul would've as a teenager?





He's a huge fan of that film, screening it along with 'Network' for the cast and crew of Magnolia. Now we know it's just because he's a narcissist.

apparently people who previously said that they wanted to work with trier read the script and said "no, i won't do this one"

i just hope it's better than nymphomaniac

This Year In Film / Re: Kong: Skull Island

They also injected the project with a lot of style

King Kong was colossal in terms of its cinematic imagination, i thought.

i went to the movie to have fun and i don't actually quite believe in serious movies anymore, by the way. because it's through life where you learn about life. a movie is always a lie. yes that may convey my idea that it's better to feel like a movie.

i liked the very first sequence with the swordfight in the sunset, then when they were approaching the island on the helicopters and a lightning storm happened while pilot/leader Sam L talked about his mother in a calm voice, then the entire rest of the movie.

i almost spontaneously clapped at least five times. a couple of times i felt like i was losing my shit.

when the guy pulled the two grenades he'd hold! when King Kong surprised me by eating! when i watched King Kong eat a person from a helicopter! when John C explained things!

really for the fact of John C alone it's a perfectly tuned 30s movie here in 2017. one thing to the next, that's how you do it. you're on a motorcycle in your narrative, that's the law of a fun narrative. really the question is was it rushed enough? emotional complexities are for other movies. this story was small and tuned to specific responses from characters experiencing the mania.

the final battle between King Kong and Godzilla is really a matter of movie magic, and it sounds to me like the odds are on the ape's side in terms of surprising the audience.

i've seen the trailers on tv and thought it looked silly but now i want to see this

btw i love jenkins <3

the song in the first trailer evokes feelings from my good old emo days (hey roy, i still think wearing all black is the best thing a man could do!) and the pictures itself looks pretty interesting. the discovery is the most bland title i've ever seen tho, but whatever, looking forward to this

That's a good game. Let's see:

Samuel L.
Thomas Jane
Melinda Dillon
Robert Smigel
Ciarán Hinds
Rami Malek
Joanna Newsom

I would watch the hell out of that movie. I tried to keep it to actors who have only been in their one respective movie so far (cheated a little with Tom Jane).
