Saw Seven Psychopaths and loved it. Smart, witty, and fun. It's has Colin Farrell as a struggling screen writing whose surrounded by psychopaths and writing a movie about psychopaths. It's a colorful movie that has laughs as well as some serious moments. Kinda like a Tarantino movie in it's style. Tremendous performances by Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell and great performances by Woody Harrelson and Tom Waits.

I'm on the fence about Looper. Is it really worth seeing in the theater? The trailer didn't really grab me but I do like Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

I don't like JGL. I guess just because everyone is gaga over him lately and I didn't like him in TDR, felt like they just put him in there because he was in inception.

Cube is good though, and so is hypercube from a quantum mechanics perspective, and I like anything about 4th dimensional space, which is almost never done in movies and could be really cool.

I also really like time travel stories, but most of the movies aren't very good. Looper sounds kind of stupid because right off the bat you know that it's going to be about closed time loops which is a lazy mechanic in writing and in science to not have to breach the problems of causality in time travel.

I just saw Transformers: RotF in IMAX, and I am blown away.

Great plot, good actions, mind-blowing graphics... The only things I have against it is that they introduced WAY too much new characters, and the old characters were almost non-existent, and they got a little bit too carried away in some parts with the language and sexual humor, but it was about as much as the first one, maybe a tad bit more.

Overall, I give it about a 8/10, a definite go-see.


Saw this early in the thread... What the hell was I smoking?

Had a Ewan MacGregor marathon on Friday. And, as previously discussed, by a marathon I simply mean two movies. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, which was actually a very cute and fluffy film I quite enjoyed. And The Ghost Writer, an excellent political thriller. Both marvelous performances by Ewan MacGregor, as always. I recommend both films. Smile

Well it was the 4th of July, and who knows what people put in their fireworks down here... Laughing

But seriously, that's why I'll usually wait a day or two after I see a movie until I review it. I gotta let my mind fall back to Earth again, Confused

I've seen Ghost Writer, but not Salmon Fishing yet.

Mara, have you ever seen Little Voice? It's a much earlier Ewan movie, but it's one of my favorites.

Salmon fishing was a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.

I'm sorry, you did an Ewan MacGregor marathon and didn't include Moulin Rouge?
