Woody really is on the upswing. His work in True Detective parallels Matthew McConaghey. (sp?)
Bought Frozen yesterday as a surprise... Let's just say I'm the coolest ever...for about 3 days.
Has anyone seen that 'Oldboy' Spike Lee remake?
Yep, watched it on the plane on the way to Turks & Caicos for Spring Break. I'm not a big Spike fan, but I thought is was his best movie since 4 Little Girls. Very worth watching.
Curious, did you see the original?
No, I didn't even realize it was a remake until I went to rent it and saw both versions. I had just remembered seeing the previews and wanted to check it out. It didn't get very good reviews, but I liked.
Movie 7.5 out of 10
Actors 9 out of 10
Draft Day - There is no doubt this is primarily a commercial for the NFL. The stories they put in this movie are so very contrived, and the draft happenings absurd. 4/10.
I want to see it, but it looked like a wait for Netflix type movie.
The previews look really bad. I won't be seeing this movie until it makes its way to network television.
I wonder how many of the bad reviews were from people who had seen the original.
The original was, and still is, a really good movie and it is a big shocker (don't ruin it for others) when the twist is revealed so if you already know what it is going in to the remake it might not be as good.
I was looking forward to seeing this. Thanks for the heads up.
The friend of mine who clued me in to the original Oldboy saw it and told me it was just horrible.
Saw the first Hunger Games on DVD. Was very good.
Made me a Jennifer Lawrence fan. Girl was bad. Woody is a cool hispter boozer too.
A dark movie. An enjoyable watch.
I watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. I never thought I'd like a romantic comedy i always thought they were predictable and a blubbery mess, but this is one of the best movies i have ever seen, 9/10
How'd you see it? Doesn't come out until April 11.
There were advance screenings for it on Thursday.
