    Saw it yesterday in IMAX before Godzilla came on. Godzilla is amazing, especially in IMAX. Great trailer, didn't see any Matt Damon or Hathaway footage apart from like a second.
    Is a rather large ensemble cast though!

    I love how they got theoretical physicist Kip Thorne as Exec producer, so you know this is the real deal.

    I see what you did there, unintentionally perhaps.

    THEORETICAL physics and REAL...okay. they can be as fictional as a Harry Potter book. Theorising about things that are unproveable from their basements.
    Lol

    But should be good to add some theoretical possibilities ie. creativity to the movie

    I'm so addicted to Mubi right now - anyone else use it? It's pretty fun every day waking up to a new film that you would otherwise find difficult to locate. The Bird With the Crystal Plummage, Memories of Underdevelopment and Grey Gardens are on there right now which are marvellous films.

    I really loved the Robert Redford side but the hitting each other bit... Nyah. It felt like a lot of the themes touched upon were just that, and needed much more development.

    I think this is the case with films and art in general! :p:

    Ugh tell me about it. Did just manage to catch City of Pirates though and alas there was no pirates or frankly, cities but instead a women who meets a child who killed his family, who she gets engaged to but is also sort of her current fiance who they kill and possibly the man with multiple personalities of his whole family whom she marries the daughter persona. It is also possible that she may be the boy. It also contains a scene where she gets food from her trunk that is mostly cabbage, raddishes, chicken legs and this guy's head which emits a red light when read poetry too aaaand one where she starts sleep walking very briskly down the road and into the ocean (where a sleep walking male figure appears out of the water) to which her father starts cheering saying she's finally going to kill herself before she abruptly turns the other way. Oh and the policemen are cultists who worship and murder for the boy.

    French films, eh? There's probably a point to it all somewhere but it's pretty impenetrable and requires knowledge of literary and historic references that nearly nobody will get. It's a lot of stuff thrown together without it but it works as a dark take on Peter Pan and the weird sexual elements to a lot of children's tales and it's clearly the director having a good time. Iconography is pretty lush and the whole thing feels like a massive identity crisis.

    I saw it purely for Daniel Radcliffe.
    It was quite sweet in a predictable, hipster way.

    Certainly seems that way. Quite 500 Days of Summer-ish. Hopefully I'll see it soon.

    Dracula Untold and Gone Girl haven't been released yet.

    I've seen A Walk Among the Tombstones. A fairly average thriller to be honest, worth seeing if you like Liam Neeson, that's the only reason I saw it.

    Cool. I do like a bit of Neeson.

    I did say about to/have so I was really asking for the two that were out.

    Fair enough

    I've already booked my ticket for Gone Girl, can't wait, should be one of the best films of the year. Saw the trailer for Dracula Untold yesterday and I don't think I'll bother with it TBH. I'll get round to seeing A Most Wanted Man eventually.

    I'm thinking I might go and see The Riot Club for a second time, it was very good.
