So you really liked under the skin?

I was kind of disappointed, and I was in a mood for a slow weird movie.
The ending was good, there were a few good moments, it meanders too much... it did succeeded in one thing, I want to read the book.

I loved Grand Budapest Hotel

Interstellar
And I have to respect it, it's an epic movie which covers a lot more of themes other then the, at times very annoying, love crosses all dimensions theme.

and of all the light fun blockbuster movies....Guardians Of Galaxy is far ahead of the pack.

22 jump street was the only movie I watched this year that I didn't get bored of midway through and have to finish in multiple sittings.

Grand Budapest Hotel, for sure.

Not usually into Wes Anderson films but it felt like a good mix between clean and crude comedy.

Hmm. Boyhood is almost unquestionably the best movie of the year by leaps and bounds, but I doubt that more than like MAYBE three of you have seen it?

Well, it's my nomination regardless

Yeah I've heard amazing things about it, it's been top three in most critics best of year lists. It'll probably be next year before I see it, and certainly not on anything bigger than my tv.

I'm still waiting for a Richard Linkletter film I like more than Dazed & Confused, mind.

Whiplash and 2 days 1 night are also among movies I almost certainly won't get to see until the later half of next year, despite their critical laurels.

Martin, I did enjoy Under The Skin immensely, and am so so sad I only got to see it at home. It still wasn't as weird or trippy as I expected, but then not much is when you're wearing Cookie Monster trousers and scratching your balls in the middle of a Sunday afternoon on your settee. And I feel exactly the same way as you about Interstellar. I did get to see that in the theatre, and cried like my life was totally emptying* during McConaughey's big video message watching scene. For all it's visual pop, he really gave it a grounding. But yeah, bullshit travels through dimensions too, honey.





* crying is something I do now, a lot, but I'm cool with it. At least it never happens during sex. Because I don't have sex any more.

....i'm still waiting for grand budapest hotel to show up on tv.

all of the cinemas near me seem to be turning into those eat-dinner-while-you-watch-the-movie places and they are horrifically expensive, so i don't seem to get out much any more....not that i ever did, though.


i see plays, though! anyone else see plays? ....anyone?.....

It is Obama's favorite movie, too. He's got that hipster cred thing going.

Pfft, Guardians of the Galaxy has you all beat. Your puny movies don't stand a chance.
