I liked The Road. Didn't think it was as powerful as the book (which may be my favorite book), but Viggo was great in it. While the world is bleak, I found it very uplifting.

Saw 12 years a slave. I can see this being sort of the schindler's list for slavery.

I'm having trouble watching father/son stories. They are wreaking havoc on my emotions. In a way that makes them even better. I should read Pet Semetary again....

Enough Said is very good and very funny. Great performances from Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini.

The Hunger Games was pretty good. I might read the books now.

I liked the Road a lot. Aside from the setting, the movie wasn't really depressing to me.

Suggested place beyond the Pines tonight & the wife wants to go with the heat. I have a really bad feeling about this.

Place beyond the Pines is good but slow to develop and slow at other points in the film.

the heat was ok, wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I don't think Melissa Mcarthy is very funny and she's extremely obnoxious in about 95% of this movie.

I thought of a great special effects film from last weeks discussion: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

What they did without computers was really amazing. Scenes like the nightclub scene involved so many practical effects to tie the animated characters together. Thats definitely a movie to watch with the commentary track on.

I thought 'All Is Lost' was decent. I just couldn't really get into like I'd have hoped to.

Mark Wahlberg blasts Hollywood privilege at 'Lone Survivor' premiere: 'I'm sorry for losing my sh-t'
Even so, at the premiere of Lone Survivor at the AFI Fest Tuesday night in Los Angeles, the veteran actor and producer shocked the audience with his candor about his role in Lone Survivor, an adaptation of Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell’s account of his Navy SEALS mission in Afghanistan in July of 2005, which director Peter Berg recreates with harrowing, explicit, and relentless precision.

When Wahlberg took the stage with Berg and Petty Officer Luttrell after the credits rolled for a brief Q&A, he looked distraught and distracted. After Luttrell explained how he and Berg teamed up for the film, the moderator, Festival Director Jacqueline Lyanga, turned to Wahlberg to ask about his rigorous training and the rough shoot. Wahlberg looked visibly pained by the question and started on what would become an almost five-minute monologue. “For actors to sit there and talk about ‘oh I went to SEAL training’? I don’t give a f-ck what you did. You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f-cking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours,” Wahlberg said.




My favorite story about actor 'boot camp' was from "Black Hawk Down". At the end of the two weeks 'training' with the Rangers, the actors went to their bunks on their last night at Fort Benning. When they awoke, all of them had letters slid under their doors during the night. The letter basically said, "We were real men who lived real lives. You have a duty; don't eff this up." And it was 'signed' by the 17 or 18 KIAs from the Battle of Mogadishu.

I think Wahlberg is having "issues". He is going to be the next star to crack up.

While I don't disagree with the sentiment, I do kinda feel like the poor emcee took the brunt.

Saw Wahlberg at a red carpet movie premiere event maybe 10 years ago, signing autographs outside the theater. He told everyone he had to go inside for a few minutes, but he'd be back out to get the people he'd missed. Sure enough, about 15 minutes later he reappeared - for a much thinned out crowd - and signed every last autograph. I thought that was really cool.

Looks pretty damn good to me. Wonder how Aronofsky's head butting with the studio over the ending is going.

He's definitely right. I like Wahlberg. Seems like a good, fairly normal dude. Also exciting is that the movie is getting pretty good reviews. The story deserves it.

Exactly how does Aronofsky want it to end? I mean...it either ends with a rainbow and an olive branch or it ends with them getting off the boat...
