I'll probably take the family the weekend that it opens. 12/14-15. Not sure on IMAX 3D, 3D or regular. (I prefer regular).

And, a theater just renovated and has leather recliners and reserved seating.

Other than that, pretty good movie, but I don't really get the hype.

Inception a sound track is only one song.


Excatly. It was either the loud "BOMMMMMMMMMM" or it was that 4-chord progression used during the "dramatic thought-provoking" scenes, like at the end of the movie, etc.

It's the latter that just appears throughout 12 Years a Slave on a regular basis. It's the same chord progression, same tempo, same everything (even the same key). I think one note was changed -- the third note was moved an octave higher in 12 years. That's it -- that's the only difference, if you can call it that. So, personally it took me out of the movie a bit.

90s-style comedy with Aubrey Plaza. Apparently it was pretty funny? Let me know if you ever watch it.

And The Way Way Back was solid. Sam Rockwell steals the show in that one.

I think it's just such an amazing true story. I guess i'm a little surprised this guy isn't more known. I took a lot of early american history classes in college and never heard of him.


Well yeah. Of course, with any story adapted to a movie, you have to take it with a grain of salt. Especially when they're adapting it from his personal diary basically. With any movie based on a true story, I'm never evaluating the movie on the actual events, per se, but how well it's all presented (direction, editing, pacing, etc.).

really liked the way way back. had a bit of a tough time seeing Steve Carell playing such a dick, but overall thought it was really great. I find Jim Rash (Dean from community) and Nat Faxon both incredibly smart and funny.

Sam Rockwell definitely stole the movie, he was hilarious, one of my favorite actors.

Echoing the previous discussion in this thread, I think this movie actually looks pretty good. Takes the basic idea but appears to have changed enough to make it its own animal. Good cast as well. Of course, they can (usually) make any movie look good in a trailer, so I guess time will tell.

Is there a movie called Binge that I can watch before the Purge?

Yeah, I'm all in for this. :thumb:

But I do have one reservation. In the original, it took some time for his human characteristics to begin reasserting themselves over his cybernetic additions. In this update, they seem 'Murphy' be Murphy from the outset. Not sure how that will impact the storytelling, because that device was the central core of the movie; the idea that humankind cannot ever be dominated by machinery. If RoboCop starts out already being mostly human and in full possession of his memories and whatnot..... not sure where they go with that.

So I'm watching Angel Eyes with Jim Caviezel an JLo

I never knew this movie existed but I've grown to like Jim Caviezel since watching him on Person of Interest.

Not a bad movie.

while you guys were watching good movies, my fiance insisted on going to the hunger games: catching fire. she's a huge fan of the books and first movie, and even she thought it sucked badly.

The Purge. Eh. Dissapoint. Great concept, solid acting, but the rest of the story and action couldn't keep up.
