    I don't know how my bro recommended Desolation of Smaug to me. If i ask him, i am sure he will say he never saw it himself, lol

    I don't even know what you are talking about ? I dont watch telly (other than tennis) and don't see the papers. My only access to the outside world is this forum -- seriously -- the O&E section is my window to the universe :)

    Furthermore, i can understand a 1500 page epic journey like LOTR being made into three movies, but how can you make so many movies out of a 10 page pamphlet like The Hobbit !!!! LOL.

    Thought Frozen was boring.

    Saw Anchor man 2. Decent. Not nearly as funny as the first movie.

    A murky muddy mess. If life back then was as bleak as this, I would have invented an afterlife too. Like a trip to the dentist, it feels like something you ought to do, not want to do.

    It was great. The guaalude scene was one of the funniest scenes I have ever seen. Geez, I only hope things were never as wild and bad as the movie portrays but I bet they were.

    The new Aussie girl is also smokin' hot.

    I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel.

    Classic Wes Anderson style and cast. Very good humor, good plot, outstanding cast.

    Bill Murray had a small but pivotal role that didn't show up until briefly in the middle of the movie (which was perfect) and when he appeared on screen, there was actually a short applause. Guy is awesome, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.


    just in case you guys didn't know. Man's a legend.

    ^^ after his success in "Lost in Translation" Murray had an open-house party at his home (a few miles from here, near Piermont, NY) and it was truly open -- ANYBODY could walk in and was made to feel welcome.

    I'm a big fan of disturbing and weird movies, just finished Irreversible.
    Was an excellent film.

    Just saw Muppets Most Wanted......and it was very very funny. The last movie that Jason Sigel did was too campy and goofy, this one was hilarious....coming from an old Muppet fan :)

    I do NOT like disturbing films.

    Out of your first list, the only one i have seen is Baby Jane. Not heard of the others. The second list has some famous names.

    If you like disturbing see Misery.

    Stephen King, iirc. The lady in it won an Academy Award for Best Supp Actress.

    Ah yes,I saw it in the cinema and I remember my jaw falling to the floor when she had that topless scene.

    Watching Napoleon Dynamite. Don't like this brand of comedy that much,but may as well see it out since it's not a long film

    Green Mile you have dropped a ton of gems. A ton. I have seen quite a few of them, but that is one of the best lists I have seen.

    And yeah - Irreversible is intense. Saw it 8 years ago and it really rattled me.

    Does the Human Centipede take the cake for weirdness or is there a further extreme? I haven't seen that many off that list but my favourite there might be Blue Velvet...

    Depends on what type of disturbing affects you the most like gore, psychological ETC.

    The sequel to Human centipede is much more darker than the first. Personally I didn't think the film was that weird, it was just the idea of it, that many people think this is right up there.

    You should watch Martyrs, my fav movie from this type of genre.

    This Hunger Games rip-off tries to say something about inter-class struggle but the message is chaotic and the acting second-rate.

    A lot of the message is lost in the difference between the book and the movie. The book was quite good, the movie was like a childrens film. Too bad.

    Let's upload somebody's mind to a supercomputer ready to become self-aware. These things never end well, do they? Engrossing and food for thought.

    Must see it.

    No way this is happening in a long time. The brain would have to be "uploaded" and that's the most complex thing we know. I am not sure it's feasible to get an exact copy of the brain.

    Lovelace. Cutting the actress into the original Phil Donahue footage was flawless.

    Captain Phillips. Amazing production and superb performances by Somalis that never acted before.

    Frozen Ground. You never know who your neighbor really is.

    All 3 based on true stories, well done.

    I watched Transcendence yesterday. It is about a guy whose brain is uploaded into the Internet before he dies.
