The bashing via social media from some in those sneak peek showings caught on fire and really killed their own box office showing with such a negative presence circulating for a few months before it was even released.

I love the concept, and think the movie is shot beautifully, but it has some missing pieces, but overall I think it's worth at least a watch and I know I will watch it again at some point.

As for the soundtrack- I think it's spectacular, and one of the best that I instantly identified how much I liked even early into the movie.
Yeah, I don't listen to social media for reviews. Or anyone, really. I just don't have the energy for that.

I'll see what a few are saying that I tend to agree with, but ultimately the trailer kinda is my barometer for seeing something. Now, if I hear good things about something I may not have been interested in I will give it a chance most likely.

I scour for movies enough as it is, and love independent film, so most times I'm the one giving the recommendations.

When I make it back to visit my parents I typically load them up with at least 15 - 20 or so flicks to watch over the next few months.

It's gotten a little less tedious now that I set up a roku I got them with access to all my premium pay channels, like Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. I also setup a media server and gave them a tutorial of using a shared
box.com account so I can load up stuff back in Chicago and they are able to watch it in KC.

Just randomly came to mind a movie I haven't seen in a while that's a great flick. It never got major distribution or any advertising or promotional budget, so I bet a lot of people who would really like it don't even know about the movie.

I highly recommend it, and take a look at what a great cast of soon to get rising stars it has in it.

Has anyone else seen this already around here? Again, highly recommend it! !

Watched the Act of Killing last night. It was a completely ****ed up movie, but it didn't manage to keep my attention. It seemed to just drag on and on and on. It's still pretty incredible to watch though. Stunning story with insane visuals.

The Synopsis:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Act_of_Killing
When Sukarno was overthrown by Suharto following the failed coup of the 30 September Movement in 1965, the gangsters Anwar Congo and Adi Zulkadry in Medan (North Sumatra) were promoted from selling black market movie theatre tickets to leading the most notorious death squad in North Sumatra, as part of the Indonesian killings of 1965–66. They also extorted ethnic Chinese locals, killing those who refused to pay. Anwar personally killed approximately 1,000 people, usually by strangling with wire.

Today, Anwar is revered as a founding father of the right-wing paramilitary organization Pemuda Pancasila that grew out of the death squads. The organization is so powerful that its leaders include government ministers, and they are happy to boast about everything from corruption and election rigging to genocide. A regime was founded on crimes against humanity, yet has never been held accountable.

Invited by Oppenheimer, Anwar and his friends eagerly re-enact the killings for the cameras, and make dramatic scenes depicting their memories and feelings about the killings. The scenes are produced in the style of their favorite film genres: gangster, western, and musical. Various aspects of Anwar and his friends' filmmaking process are shown, but as they begin to dramatize Anwar's own nightmares, the fiction scenes begin to take over the film's form, leading the film to become increasingly surreal and nightmarish. Oppenheimer has called the result "a documentary of the imagination".

While some of Anwar's friends realize that the killings were wrong, others worry about the consequences of the story on their public image. Younger members of Pemuda Pancasila argue that they should boast about the horror of the massacres, because their terrifying and threatening force is the basis of their power today.

Spoiler!

The World's End -- pretty hilarious. My only beef is sometimes it's ****ing hard to understand what they're saying because they speak so fast.

Runner, Runner -- pretty alright. I like JT as an actor, but this character was pretty meh.

Watching Carrie and Prisoners today at some point.

Ended up buying a 1080p digital copy of it for my ultraviolet library because I like it so much, and it was only $9, also added hd copy of Lucky Number Slevin for only $5.

I've come around on having a digital cloud movie library- definitely didn't think I would care all that much about having the option, but it's grown on me, and damn convenient.

Carrie sucked pretty hard, although the lead is smoking hot (I hope she's of age).

Prisoners was good. Not a huge fan of the ending, but I enjoyed it. I wish Terrence Howard had more of a role.
