STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS is a fucking blast! It's just as entertaining, action-packed, thrilling, and witty as 2009's STAR TREK. With INTO DARKNESS, director J.J. Abrams has crafted a loving homage to the beloved sci-fi franchise's magnum opus (figure that one out for yourself), all while retaining the energy, spectacle, and freshness of the 2009 reboot. This is the first great summer blockbuster of the year, and it will please fans and non-fans of Star Trek alike. One more thing: Benedict Cumberbatch owns this film, delivering a commanding performance that evokes the work of the legendary Alan Rickman. Go see INTO DARKNESS now!

The general consensus of the critics on THE GREAT GATSBY is that it's "style over substance," to which my response is: It's Baz Luhrmann, for fuck's sake! All his films are "style over substance"! When I pay to see a Baz Luhrmann film, I pay to be dazzled and entertained (with exception of AUSTRALIA, which bored me to tears), and that's it! With that said, THE GREAT GATSBY still may not be a good film, but that's something I'll determine after seeing it for myself. Even if I don't like it, I'm not going to bitch and moan about it being "style over substance," especially when that's the director's area of cinematic expertise.

The Great Gatsby was a substantial book first. Perhaps, that truth is what to which critics react. But, as you point-out, people should have perhaps adjusted their expectations of the 2013 adaptation of the source material.

I just saw an interview where Baz said at one of the premieres a lady had travelled there from quite a ways away and revealed herself to him as the granddaughter of the book's author. She said Baz's film was the best adaptation of the book she had ever seen, and loved that he did the book but added his own thing to it as well. He said that was an incredible experience and didn't care about what anyone else thought of the film after that, and I don't blame him. Just thought I'd share that.

I don't think the book is nearly as deep or wonderful as everyone else seems to think anyway.

Hell fucking yes!!! Fox is planning a 24 return to primetime television! Jack Bauer is coming back to kick more terrorist ass! The only downside is that Fox only wants to do 13 episodes (which will affect 24's real-time format), but this is still THE NEWS OF THE FUCKING YEAR!

Heard about it. Fucking excited about the idea. If they writers can get together and write a solid series even if it's not the usual 24 eps then I fucking down. Also no Kim Bauer please

I though was the new 24 show. Every episode had 24 cast members

I'm seeing JAWS and 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY on the big screen tonight!!! It's going to be one hell of a double feature!

I was able to see both in a theater too, JAWS last summer and 2001 earlier this year. But both on the same night? Awesome!

Shane Black's IRON MAN 3 is the worst installment in the trilogy. I'd give it a 4/10, but since it's very funny, I'll bump it up to a 5/10. Despite witty humor, awesome special effects, and another effortless performance by RDJ, the script is a mess, rarely engaging and unnecessarily convoluted. Also, I absolutely hated what they did with The Mandarin in this film! It brought back horrible memories of what Sam Raimi did to Venom in SPIDER-MAN 3. Bottom line: IRON MAN 3 is half-assed, but obviously Disney and Marvel don't give a fuck, because they know everyone in the world will flock to the theater to see it, making them millions, possibly billions of dollars. I'm afraid the curse of the "threequel" is very much alive, my friends.

I heard the same thing, in regards to the Mandarin's character.
I'm also not surprised about the "humor" part, it's becoming Marvel's trademark and I think it's becoming the center piece of their movies. Instead of Action/Comedy, I see it as Comedy/Action flick.
But I will see it even though, because it's a good summer popcorn flick.

Tonight: Terrence Malick's latest directorial effort, TO THE WONDER. Has anyone seen it yet? Any thoughts? As a huge fan of Malick, this is my most anticipated film of the entire year, so I can't fucking wait!!! I will report back later tonight or sometime tomorrow!

I've seen it. It's not bad. Probably his most Malicky...if that makes sense lol

That makes perfect sense. I know exactly what you mean. The critics haven't liked or appreciated this film very much, but some compared it to DAYS OF HEAVEN, and that's exciting to hear because I love that film.

Watched LAWLESS a couple days ago. Despite its cliched and formulaic narrative, LAWLESS is a solid, entertaining crime drama, featuring a great ensemble cast (Guy Pearce steals the show with a terrific scene-chewing performance) and exceptional direction by John Hillcoat. Also, I loved the score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis and the soundtrack. And did I mention that the absolutely gorgeous Jessica Chastain gets naked? That's enough reason to watch the film! Haha! :D

huh I really did not find the narrative to be that formulaic or cliche filled at all myself but in any case good to hear you enjoyed it!

Agreed.

Very fine points made, especially the last one. ;)

I'm about to watch LAWLESS. For some reason, I missed this one in theaters. I hope Shia La-whatever doesn't ruin it for me. Who saw it? Any thoughts?

Who's ready for the two-hour season premiere of MAD MEN tonight?! This is one of my absolute favorite shows currently on television, so I'm pumped! Tonight's premiere also gives me an excuse to drink relentlessly like the characters. Not that I ever need an excuse. Haha!

Fede Alvarez's EVIL DEAD is its own breed of horror, all while paying homage (and offering plenty of affectionate nods and winks) to Sam Raimi's beloved original, and most importantly, it's a bloody good time! As delightfully gory as it is, EVIL DEAD's true highlight is Jane Levy, delivering a shockingly impressive performance as Mia. For being a young comedic actress, I didn't expect her to pull off a role like this, but she did and then some. EVIL DEAD is a remake that actually works, something which is quite rare in today's remake-obsessed film industry, and it's the best of its kind since Zack Snyder's DAWN OF THE DEAD. Looking forward to seeing it again and a sequel! I give EVIL DEAD a solid 7/10.

Haha good, I saw a matinee and most people left the theater right away. I agree with you about the original trilogy being superior, and I hope that the plans for more of them as well as a final film combining the new and old end up happening.

Getting ready to watch EVIL DEAD II right now. On the front side of its DVD cover, there's 3 stars with Roger Ebert's name underneath, and on the back side, there's a quote from Ebert's review: "Manic, inspired genius. A great time!" This made me very happy and very sad simultaneously.

Anyone watching THE AMERICANS? It's such a good show -- well-acted, smart, sexy, intricately plotted, and thought-provoking. The "protagonists" are not really the heroes, and the "antagonists" are not really the villains, and it blurs the lines between the two, which is probably its greatest strength. Worth checking out!
