Very solid. Nothing ground breaking but worth a watch. Jeff bridges killed it. Well put together flick.

Did someone Steve Harvey the Oscars last night? I saw on my news feed they had to apologize for naming the wrong movie for best picture. Oops.

Someone gave Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the wrong card to read for Best Picture.

Moonlight actually won, but he announced La La Land. He was given Emma Stone's card for winning Best Actress for La La Land.

La La Land's cast was up there, one guy was saying his acceptance speech then goes "Well nevermind, we actually lost!"

One of the Oscar goons walks up to the mic, and tells the Moonlight cast/crew to come up. They won BP and he had to tell them it wasn't a joke.

Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.

Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I'm certainly no expert.. but it seems like if you knew you were giving an award for Best Picture and the card said "Emma Stone", you'd think something was up..

unless, of course, there was a movie called "Emma Stone" up for Best Picture - in which case, chaos would reign supreme.

According to the internet reports, Leo messed the cards up. There were TWO Emma Stone Best Actress cards for some reason.

Another Oscar 2017 gaffe.

Oscars: Australian Producer Jan Chapman Devastated by Mistaken In-Memoriam Photo

Leading Australian producer, Jan Chapman was “devastated” by another mistake in the Oscars telecast.

Janet Patterson, an Australian costume designer and four-time Oscar nominee (“The Piano,” “Portrait of a Lady,” “Oscar and Lucinda” and “Bright Star”) passed away in October 2015.

Her name and occupation were correct in the montage, but the photo used was of Jan Chapman, a still-living Australian film producer.

Oops.

So, I'm fucking jacked for Kong: Skull Island next week.

I loved the new Godzilla reboot, and have always been a fan of monster movies (Jurassic Park is one of my all-time favs, if not number one).

I saw the leaked after-credits scene online, and it shows what people thought anyways: Kong and Godzilla are in the same universe. It also showed Mothra, Ghidorah, etc.

SOOO pumped!

Does that include kids movies? My wife and I never go to the movies, just the two of us. I could count on one hand the number of movies we've been to without my daughter, in the nearly 11 years since she was born. Not that we couldn't if we want to, but we'd usually rather see something we can all watch. Fortunately, the last few years that choice has expanded as she's gotten older. Prior to having a kid, we would see almost everything (BIL worked in a theater, so we'd never pay a dime).

Now I see ads for movies that look interesting, but not appropriate for a kid, and I try to make a mental note to watch it when it's on video or HBO...and then I usually forget that mental note and never think of them again.

Hah! You're right about the kids. I've seen Moana, and my wife has seen Trolls. I'm not sure how many times Minions has played in our house, at least Hotel Transylvania 2 is something new. I did get to see SW: Rogue One, which I really liked, I think the last movie we saw was SW:A Force Awakens, although I did go one night to see Deadpool, if that came out last year.
We rent a lot from RedBox, if there's anything worth watching.

My daughter's at that age where she still likes the animated movies, but likes a lot of adventure/action movies, as well.  We won't let her see R movies yet, though, regardless of why it's R, and we evaluate PG-13 movies on a case-by-case basis, usually after googling "imdb parents guide <movie name>" and reading why it's PG-13.  

Parenthood has made me wish that the studios would release DVDs with the TV versions of movies.  The versions with certain bits edited for regular TV.  I used to watch movies like Airplane and Caddyshack all the time as a kid, and never knew until I was in high school that they've got bouncing boobies and other things not suited for kids that were cut out when they were shown on TV.  I know my daughter would love those (the edited versions of movies, not the bouncing boobies - NTTAWWT).

Logan was A-W-E-S-O-M-E.

One of the best superhero movies ever made. It didn't really feel like a superhero film.

First time I've felt that way since The Dark Knight.

Whatever I don't feel great about America after watching this. Show me the story of the guy who married his sweetheart, but then died during the war and this country told his spouse that they don't give a Fuck about their kids and left them in poverty you a life of crime.

Video Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast (No spoilers)

Post by gHost Spartan on 2017-03-19, 16:01

Just got back from Beauty and the Beast (3D) and I gotta say, it was a wonderful film. Emma Watson wasn't the Belle that I had envisioned when I first saw the animal picture, and she was really the only issue I had with the film's casting. But Luke Evans knocked it out of the park as the narcissistic Gaston and the animated characters were very well done and interacted quite nicely with the live cast. The film stayed very true to the original animated feature film and many extra songs seemed to be included, which added to the film's temp. Overall, I'd rate this film a solid 8/10 stars and highly recommend it. Unfortunately my almost 4 year old daughter fell asleep during the middle but woke up in the end which is a good thing (I don't want to include any spoilers).

If you dig good TV and can handle subtitles, Walter Presents just became available in the US. Streaming service that has been available in the U.K. for a couple years, it specializes in International television. $6.99 a month.

I've seen some of the shows currently available through WP and would recommend...

Spin - French political thriller.

Trouble in The Water - Scandinavian Bloodline-like thriller.

Magnifica 70 - crazy Brazilian drama.

XX, an anthology of female driven horror movie segments by four women.

20 minute vinettes. Kind of weird but was different.

Rented it last night with the wife, we gave it a thumbs sideways.

Started watching Iron Fist on Netflix with my 11 year-old. He's really into it but my god can it be stupid at times. This dude is supposed to be some super hero warrior and he acts like he has the mental capacity of an 8 year-old. Also the show is roughly 80% of him running his family business and its associated affairs.
A typical episode is roughly 45 minutes exploring this guy's business ventures and 10 minutes of kung fu action. I cannot recommend it but I can see the appeal as to why some people like it.

gHost Spartan wrote:Just got back from Beauty and the Beast (3D) and I gotta say, it was a wonderful film. Emma Watson wasn't the Belle that I had envisioned when I first saw the animal picture, and she was really the only issue I had with the film's casting. But Luke Evans knocked it out of the park as the narcissistic Gaston and the animated characters were very well done and interacted quite nicely with the live cast. The film stayed very true to the original animated feature film and many extra songs seemed to be included, which added to the film's temp. Overall, I'd rate this film a solid 8/10 stars and highly recommend it. Unfortunately my almost 4 year old daughter fell asleep during the middle but woke up in the end which is a good thing (I don't want to include any spoilers).

We took my daughter Sunday afternoon before the MSU game, and I pretty much agree. I was kind of meh on Emma Watson going in (I don't mind her, but am not a big fan, maybe because I was a little old for the Harry Potter phenomenon, where boys grew up loving her), but she did well, and sang better than I expected. Gaston was good, as was the Beast. Didn't realize until the end that Ewan McGregor was the candlestick and Ian McKellen was the clock. So kind of funny that among the 5-6 most major characters they had the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars franchises represented.

At the risk of hurting whatever Swill street cred I may have, I will admit that the cartoon version of Beauty and The Beast is probably the only Disney princess movie that I always liked. Maybe it's good memories of watching it college a couple of times with a great girl, but I remember thinking that the Beast was pretty bad ass, it had some decent action and the songs were really well done. Never minded watching that with my daughter when she was younger. So I thought this was a very nice live-action re-make. As gHost said, it stayed pretty true to the animated version.

I still very much enjoy plenty of blood and guts, shoot em up action movies and shows, so don't knock my Swill cred down too much.

The Accountant should have won picture of the year, best actor and best supporting actor.

Just got done watching the new Chapelle comedy special on Netflix. I think he is an anti-vaxxer which made me go, "What the fuck dude?" But it was mostly pretty funny.

If anyone else here has been watching HBO's Big Little Lies, does it suck or am I missing something? Aside from the 3-4 times that Nicole Kidman's rack has been featured, I've found it pretty boring. There's some big payoff coming, but meh.

Based on how many times I've seen a promo for this new Jenna Elfman sitcom I think it's safe to say it will be bad. Very bad.

Seemed like a chick flick to me. Never watched one minute of it. When does the new season Silicon Valley start?

It is a chick flick show. GF watches it when I don't have anything to watch on the big TV.

It is so fucking boring and so dumb.

Although I did get her hooked on Leftovers....:rockon:

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Pylon, Silicon Valley starts April 23 at 10PM, after Leftovers.

Leftovers premieres the week before.

I figured it was going to be some homicide thing.  It's going to happen, but damn is it taking a long, boring circuitous route.  Only question is how many and who.
