Rumpled 4 SkinAnd trailers with retro pop songs slowed down and sung in accapella by a melancholic emo female go on [img]https://s25.postimg.org/7dntsgzof/shocked.gif[/img]

This has big budget bomb stank all over it. I'm trying to recall the last trailer I watched that reminded me of this. That also had a cloying sort of smugness to it. It's like everyone involved with the movie had read the book and are looking down their nose at the ignorant masses who haven't.

The Man Who Knew Too Much - 8/10 - The 1956 version with Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day playing off each other effortlessly. Numerous iconic scenes with the Marrakech marketplace murder and the Royal Albert Hall. I had no idea this is where Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera Sera) was first featured and won an Academy Award. Maybe not as widely held a Hitchcock classic as some but still really captivating.

Thor: Ragnarok Official trailer


Looks more comic bookish than the first. And the Hulk talks?

Justice League Comic-Con Trailer

Looks somewhat brighter than the last trailer. I read somewhere Whedon was doing extensive reshooting. I wonder how much, if any, of his footage is included?

I liked the book well enough but it looks like it might be a little overwhelming onscreen.

I'll bet Whoopi Goldberg's wig is listed in the credits before Luis Guzman. Cuz that's how they do a brother. And not too many people know this but all of Goldberg's scenes were filmed inside a rental storage unit in Pomona.

Rope - 4/10 - No. Didn't like this one at all. It has a 97% Tomatometer and I'm pretty sure that's due to the technical prowess on display since this was Hitchcock's first Technicolor film. But it's a largely inaccessible movie with all the (so called) action taking place in one room and the meat of the film consisting of dialogue. I also felt that Jimmy Stewart was miscast as the abstract and perceptive Rupert. He gets to make the hero's speech at the end but it falls flat. This was a study in narcissism but it's failings are that it's not so much aloof as simply uninspired.

Thief12 I've read so many great things about Flash or Arrow or Daredevil that I wouldn't know where to start.

Never felt the need to watch the CW but do yourself a solid and give Daredevil a chance.

DaMULove that carousel setpiece, and how the mama complex comes roaring back in Psycho.

Oh yeah. Loved how that little kid wanted in on the action. But what kind of knucklehead cop starts blasting away with all those kids in the line of fire?

Damn Netflix. David Ayer directing. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton starring. They probably didn't fund this from the get-go and just outbid some other studios but still. Seeing something like this convinces me that Netflix could finally do justice to something like The Dresden Files. All they need is the right lead. I still say James Marsden would be great in the role.

May It Last: A Portait of The Avett Brothers

From longtime fans Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio and filmed with extraordinary access over the course of more than two years, MAY IT LAST is an intimate portrait of the acclaimed North Carolina band The Avett Brothers, charting their decade-and- a-half rise, while chronicling their present-day collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on the multi-Grammy- nominated album "True Sadness", which was released on American Recordings/Republic Records. With the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong bond and unique creative partnership, as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business. More than just a music documentary, MAY IT LAST is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time.

The Wound

Brimming with sex and violence, The Wound is an exploration of tradition and sexuality set amid South Africa's Xhosa culture. Every year, the tribe's young men are brought to the mountains of the Eastern Cape to participate in an ancient coming-of-age ritual. Xolani, a quiet and sensitive factory worker (played by openly gay musician Nakhane Tour), is assigned to guide Kwanda, a city boy from Johannesburg sent by his father to be toughened up, through this rite of passage into manhood.

Strangers On A Train - 9/10 - One more Hitchcock film in the bag and it's a classic. Right up there anyway. His daughter Patricia is in it too. Two guys meet on a train. One turns out to be pretty much a psychopath. Still have Rope warming up in the bullpen. Also about a half dozen others.
