S.Leeper, what are your favorite time travel movies? i'm a huge fan of em, i liked Looper quite a bit and Primer is one of my favorites. seen the usual ones..time bandits, 12 monkeys, etc.

watched Moonrise Kingdom. typical Wes Anderson fare, if you're a fan. didn't like it as much as The Royal Tennenbaums or This Aquatic Life but i'll probably watch it again.

watching Argo tonight. then i have The Fantastic Mr. Fox on que for more Wes Anderson nuttiness.

btw, thanks to Reilly for recommending The Fall. it's been on my radar for a while but i'd forgotten about it. i watched it recently and really loved it. the little girl who played Alexandria was awesome, as were all the sets.

I thought Looper was pretty damn good. But Im not a ime travel snob. ;)

Prometheus was good, but lots of unanswered and unexplained questions linger. The story didn't feel complete.

Ah, "Mystery Train." Jarmusch's first actually good film in my opinion. I could only sit through "Stranger Than Paradise" once. I liked all three sets of characters, but especially Joe Strummer of course. Screamin' Jay Hawkins is a great bonus. And we know what Elvis is up to! I have a copy of "Dead Man," which is my favorite from Jarmusch although I also liked "Broken Flowers."

Got "Looper" from the library last night. It was my second viewing since the theatrical release. Still loved it and forgot some of the plot twists. Great film that will stand up over time I think.
Damn this looks high

Evel Knievel, 1971. Classic George Hamilton movie.

I guess I should have just said that I'm not much of a fan of time travel movies. I couldn't get past J Levitt's makeup in Looper and the plot wasn't very compelling for me, I know I'm in the minority.

Cant wait to see Argo!

Any opinions on "The master"?

s.leeper, i hear you on the plot with Looper. nothing groundbreaking but there are movies i love with weakish plots (ie, Drive) JGL's makeup was pretty realistic in the movie but i can see how it would get in the way of the film. overall, i think Looper went above and beyond as far as your typical summer blockbuster action movies go.

i had a hard time with The Master. i didn't connect with it like i did with There Will Be Blood.

watching True Grit right now

sure weezy, looper had some strong points and was better than it needed to be, just not my cup of tea.

Funny, we have opposite opinions on there might be blood.

I liked butterfly effect for time travel... and eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is a bit timetravel-esque.-well I loved that movie either way.

eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is one of those movies you probably should or shouldn't watch as you're ending a multi-year relationship. charlie kaufman writes some great stuff.

i watched McCabe and Mrs. Miller last night.

So I watched The Master. This is just my take... and keep in mind i do LOVE Joaqiun Phoenix. I thought the acting was excellent, high caliber. But the plot, the movie itself, just didn't speak to me. I didn't relate to the characters, or I just... I don't know, it just wasn't a captivating plot (to me). But Joaquin & Phillip Seymour Hoffman, they are fantastic actors! So it's worth a watch in that respect/perhaps others will think differently than i, it has gotten high critical acclaim...

Anyway, here is an interesting read:

And so now I will watch zero dark thirty, it's next on the list.

Not a movie, but an interview with Kim Novak on TCM great stuff 100 percent lucid. Is she not nearly 80 years old? A true survivor and wow did the camera love her.
