anybody get a chance to watch Where God Left His Shoes? I thought this one would ring true for a lot of people that had fallen on hardship over the last 4 years. I was never in a rut as bad as Johnny L's character, but I felt his pain.

Kieran Culkin was the best part of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

Definitely, agreed.

I'd definitely agree with you on that. He was funny as hell in that role. Before seeing him in Igby Goes Down, I would just think of him as "the brother" and didn't give him much of chance. Glad to say I was completely wrong on that count and in that mindset. Kid has chops'.

I'm pretty sure the best part was Mary Elizabeth Winstead

So, we're both definitively agreeable to that statement.

Except you beat me to it, bastard - lol.

I never heard of this. John Leguizamo is awesome though, so I'm sure it's good.

Speaking of shoes, I highly recommend Dead Man's Shoes

haha i will see any movie that involves kevin smith (jersey girl doesnt count). havent seen it since it was in theaters, but it was pretty funny.

fun fact: the original title for this was "a couple of dicks", but the MMPA was not a fan

Speaking of Somebody Culkin, The Chumscrubber, is a really cool movie.

Speaking of Leguizamo, Spun is a great movie of meth cookery and drug psychosis. Also stars Mickey Rourke, Jason Schwartzman, and the late Brittany Murphy.

The amazon page says that's Rory Culkin. Unless Kieran is in a supporting role.

nevermind then.

Still a cool movie though.

That's cool, man. I like to collect some movie posters myself, although I don't have an Igby Goes Down one. Did you get it around the time when the movie was released? My favorite one that I own is a vintage 'Mean Streets' poster signed by Scorsese. That's my precious.

i got it maybe 2 or 3 years ago. my girlfriend is a big indie movie fan, and we have been collecting posters over the years for our house. when we were at our apartment, they were just sitting around because there was no space for them. we moved this summer and our walls are starting to get covered.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:45:49 AM PST
oh man! i've seen that one!!! Right after the buzz of "requiem for a dream" died down (pun intended), we watched "Spun." Movie is nuts!

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 16, 2013 11:48:33 AM PST
it's a "stop and make you thankful for what you've got/making due with what you don't" type of movie. Takes place around Christmas, so I watch it in the winter from time to time.

That's awesome, Driz.

We're going to be moving soon (this spring/summer) back to New York, so once we find a place then I'll have to figure out some space for my movie posters once we're all settled in.

Another movie that hit and was gone again was RocknRolla. I thought it was a great movie and heard that there was the makings of a sequel, but nothing more than that.

The Jacket

I thought it was good anyway, not sure how many people have seen it.....

Posted on Jan 16, 2013 12:00:12 PM PST
Street Kings, Dr Horrible, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Kingdom of Heaven, Office Space (although this is a questionable choice....I'm just not sure how well received it was by the masses).
However, top 3 all time movies are Office Space, Aliens, Anchorman.

I have that one. It's a pretty different take on a time travel movie. Decent, but a bit forgettable.

AmbientGreen says:
Kingdom of Heaven is friggin' epic. I'm not an Orlando Bloom fan, but he was really good in that one, along with Neeson and Irons.

Always loved me some Ron Burgundy and Peter Gibbons, as well.

The one that popped into my head first was Winters Bone. It got a fair amount of critical praise and a couple of oscar nominations and people may pay more attention to it now because it stars Jennifer Lawrence but at the time I didn't really know anyone who had seen it. Jennifer and John Hawkes were brilliant in that movie.
