Rooney Mara was in the U.S. version.

Noomi Rapace was in the original version.

Noomi Rapace was in Prometheus, which is what I think Bratboy is referring to.

I know that, but both of their posts seemed to indicate that they thought the same actress had been in both versions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

I was referring to the way the character was represented, not the specific actress.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Hiding Out was on tv last night. It's still one of my favorite comedies. :)

Beyond the Lighted Stage

Yeah haters, the Rush documentary!

It's actually entertaining as hell. I think even people who hate their music could actually find less to hate about them. I was nuts about them in Jr High and High school, they are kind of low key and private, so it was fun to get a clearer picture of who they are, what they think, etc.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

An excellent doc. By the time you get to the end, you almost feel like you went to jr high with them.

If you want to read a great book, pick up Ghost Rider, by Neil Peart.

Noah.

You have to give it room for it's artistic interpretation of the story. Not bad, a couple parts dragged on but over all enjoyable. Huge A+ for supporting my thought on Genesis supporting evolution. It can wait for rental. Not a must see on big screen.

La Jetée

It's a french short sci fi film, and the inspiration for 12 Monkeys. Very cool little film! It's almost a graphic novel in film, and it has a very literary style.

The Station Agent

After watching Game of Thrones, I wanted to see Peter Dinklage again in this movie.

Such an odd flick. Nothing much really happens in it. Explores some of Peter's dwarf angst.
He inherits a train station and, despite himself, makes some friends.
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

Winter Soldier.

It was good. Dunno why they released it so early in the season, it has summer blockbuster written all over it.

Apparently RoboCop sucked - it's already out of theaters. Otherwise I'd be buying a ticket now.

Because summer blockbusters rarely get nominated for an academy award?

It was good, but I don't see Winter Soldier winning a lot of academy awards. (Best VFX maybe.)

Pitch Perfect. There are some comedies i can watch over and over, and this is one of them.

The last movie that I saw is an appropriate response to two of the current discussions in this forum.

It didn't feel dated. It's understandable why so many people think so highly of it.

Blazing Saddles.

I loved Young Frankenstein, and really liked Spaceballs. Blazing Saddles was okay, but I've seen better Mel Brooks movies.

It was made post-civil rights. More a movie of it's time. The ending was a train wreck.

I have a fondness for it because it was one of the rare movies that my family attended (dad considered them expensive).

I've never seen these movies that I've been watching over the last several months. I just know that people commonly reference them, and I wanted to get all of the references. I still have a lot more to watch.

I had an interesting experience with Office Space.

When I was just wrapping up my sophomore year of college, I was offered an opportunity to do a co-op at the nuclear power plant (Arkansas Nuclear One). Naturally, I jumped on that, and it was a great experience. I worked in their design engineering office for two 6-month stints, and was even allowed to work outage jobs in the plant. Moreover, I had a real working experience in an office, with all that entails - specifically, cubical life.

Fast forward, and my buddies and I rent Office Space. Everyone else in the room is just staring at each other saying "What's so funny about that?", while I was curled on the floor rolling. They thought I was nuts. (okay, a small amount of alcohol may have been involved...)

tl;dr - Office Space is meaningless if you haven't worked in an office, especially one with cubicles. If you have, then it's the funniest movie you are likely to ever see.

Man Of The Year with Robin Williams. Confused film making. The few times Williams gets to riff he's his usual self. Otherwise plodding with an awkward conspiracy angle that fails.

Kill Bill Vol.I I dislike Tarantino's stuff and film violence in general but since this is so over the top I give it a grudging pass. I'll watch Vol. II later but there better be a pay off.

Volume One was better than Volume Two.
