    Well seeing Juno Temple's tits was nice.

    Don't know what else to say about that film.
    What would you give it out of 10?

    For me, the plot was just really thin (I know it was a character driven film but still), annoyed that I didn't enjoy it more.

    I totally agree, I really thought the plot was stupid and that the characters were the more important aspect. And I have really come to appreciate Matthew McCounoughy recently.

    But didn't make up for it. 6/10 maybe 7 if I look more at the performances.

    edit: yea just checked I got it at 6 on IMDB

    Just watched Killer Joe, have any of you seen it and if you have what did you think?

    It was underwhelming for me, I went in with pretty high expectations admittedly and the only thing that stood out for me were the performances, I would give it a 7/10 at a push. Everyone one of my housemates completely hated it though. And that scene near the end has got to be one of the most ****ed up things I've seen.
    I thought it was pretty good actually. Certainly 8/10 for me. Most of all for the astonishing revelation that Matthew Mahogany can do more than merely drippy romcom characters. He acts his socks off in this and is genuinely scary.


    In other news, saw Killing Them Softly last night. Boy oh boy, what a dark and seedy take on the gangster movie. Never before have I seen such an un-glamorised view of the criminal underworld. Just about everyone in it is stupid, scummy and pathetic. A very long way from the gloss of say Goodfellas.

    I read a book about the guy this is based on a few years ago and Michael Shannon is exactly the kind of creepy needed for it.

    You are right, I remember seeing him in some movie and he was such a total creep. Don't remember which one though.

    Is Allison (Kay Panabaker) in Little Birds gay?

    Watching it right now and somehow she likes Lily just a little too much.

    I do the same with Zooey Deschanel, going as far as to suffer through the abominable film, 'Your Highness'. I've watched the pilot for New Girl too, though not gone any further into that show, I've heard it's terrible.
    Mehh. It's pretty standard fare for an American sitcom. There's nothing particularly special about it, but in comparison to its contemporary equivalents, it's not all that bad. If you're looking for intelligent, sharp humour obviously 'New Girl' isn't going to cut it but as a brainless watch it can be alright. If 'Two and a Half Men' is a 1996 Fiat Punto and 'Fresh Meat' is a 2010 BMW M5, I'd say 'New Girl' is a 2000 Ford Fiesta.

    I'd say New Girl is a Nissan Figaro - loved by hipsters for its aesthetic, but it's so cynically targeted at its demographic in such a soulless fashion that it ends up a bit bland.

    Seriously, who cares, Schmidt is hilarious and Cece is hot. If you're bored for 20 minutes, watch it.

    You're not? What changed?
    Most news we've heard about it is promising, I'd feared it'd never get round to being made!

    Well Quentin Tarantino won't be special guest directing this one, which is a shame. Plus there's loads of actors/actresses who won't be in it, such as Clive Owen, Michael Clarke Duncan, Devon Aoki etc. who I thought were all exceptional in their roles within the first one. Those are just some of the reasons, anyway...

    Just saw Silver Linings Playbook. I really loved it, the two performances were amazing.

    But, was Tiffany really 'crazy'?

    Not crazy in my opinion, just suffering from depression.

    Tarantino only directed one scene (the car with Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro) in the first, so that's hardly a reason not to see it to me.

    Yeah it's kinda sad there won't be some returning faces but I'm still super excited for it.

    According to Wikipedia (ye) it'll feature both Josh Brolin AND Clive Owen playing pre and post Dwight but we'll see.

    That's what I thought, and why Pat says "to meet my crazy you had to do something crazy yourself".

    That's my favourite scene, tbh.
