    I'm not a Wes Anderson fanboy. I've probably liked about half of his movies. What are your thoughts on his other films?

    For me, it was one of those "makes you smile" kind of movies. The quirk humor worked, I thought Ed Norton and Bill Murray played hilarious characters, the cinematography and costumes were vivid and colorful, the children characters felt geniune to me, it was just so unique. That was my take...

    Premium Rush doesn't "kind of suck."

    Fun, well-made chase film.

    Killer Joe is pretty good, but not as good as the hype out there about the movie.

    The lead acting is solid and there are some exciting chase scenes, but the supporting cast is weak, much of the dialogue and plot holes made me cringe, and some of the stylistic effects looked dated (this all coming from a self-proffesed JGL and Michael Shannon fanboy)...

    Seriously? I've held off b/c of the subject matter but sounds like I need to give it a try...

    Not in the theater though.

    I adore Michael Shannon's performance in this movie and Gordon-Levitt is always solid... allowed me to overlook the rough edges.

    Skyfall (7/10)
    Lincoln (7/10)

    Haywire (4/10)

    Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (4/10)
    Premium Rush (4/10)

    They Sucked:
    Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (3/10)
    Mansome (3/10)
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2/10)

    I Wasn't Smart Enough To Watch And Had To Turn It Off After 10 Minutes:
    Coriolanus

    Still Eagerly Anticipating:
    Zero Dark Thirty
    Killer Joe
    End of Watch
    The Imposter
    Detropia
    21 Jump Street

    Wouldn't Mind Seeing:
    The Cabin in the Woods
    We Need to Talk About Kevin
    Chronicle
    Rampart
    Project X
    Casa de Mi Padre
    The Pirates! Band of Misfits
    Your Sister's Sister
    To Rome with Love
    Cosmopolis
    Dredd
    Cloud Atlas
    Flight
    This Is 40
    If the ones I've seen, this is a pretty good list. I'd bump up Killing Them Softly and DKR. And I'd drop Savages to They Sucked.

    Killer Joe and Cabin in the Woods were really good.

    I'd also agree that Looper was the best of all.

    Just finished watching Looper and it is definitely worth a look.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I watched a really cool doc last night called "Searching for Sugarman" about a singer songwriter from the 60s and 70s named Rodriguez. I don't want to give away the story, but it was really really good.

    Has anyone seen that documentary about those tiles that have been popping up all over the world? Can't remember the title, I'm sure someone here knows what I'm talking about...

    Really odd but pretty fascinating...

    That was a documentary? I thought that was a NyQuil hallucination I had.
