Star Trek into Darkness

I am pretty sure a lot of people didn't care for this at all, so perhaps i was ready to be underwhelmed. I didn't know much of anything about what to expect in regards to the plot, so I was pleasantly surprised by how they turned the Wrath of Khan upside-down.
It was fun for me, not sure how any of the re-boot would play with people unfamiliar with the old series though.

The Machine

Really good movie. One could even call it something of a prequel to Blade Runner.

I saw MP in the movie theatre when it came out. It was just something that every kid went to see.

Now that I think of it: I have a vague memory of going to a drive-in with the family to see Mary Poppins, but I think I fell asleep long before anything interesting started happening, so I must have seen dancing penguins and chimney sweeps only during later TV viewings.
The Silence of the Lambs. I don't understand the hype behind it. Seemed to me both Foster and Hopkins overacted. A bit cartoonish actually. The TV series played up the twisted evilness better.

I think it was very fresh and bold at the time, but spawned so many pop-culture tropes that they now feel like cliches.

102 minutes that changed the world

caught it last night, couldn't take my eyes away ... no narration, no interviews, no music, nothing; they just put together footage starting with the first plane hitting until the second tower collapsing

really transported me back to that day, and even after all these years it still feels so damn unreal to me

There are some days I never want to relive.

That day is definitely one of them.

Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure. Saw it in the theater back in '89 and thought it was the stupidest thing I'd ever seen. Gave it another chance last night and laughed my ass off.

for about the millionth time ... still a freaking classic, i notice something clever on each viewing (this time it was the realization of the rarely-used multiple narrators)

I gave The Internship a shot, but i just couldn't get into it.
OK, it's not a movie but I'm posting this here.

Garfunkel and Oates, a limited series on IFC. I came across it while channel surfing. You may seen their music video of "The Loophole".

The comedic music duo are playing something of a variant of themselves where they are sharing a house/apartment (not yet clear to me which) in LA and going about their supposed daily lives. I think each of the 8 episodes of this series deals with a topic for each of them, so in "Eggs", episode 7, (which is the only episode I've seen so far) Garfunkel (Riki Lindhome) is worrying about her biological time-clock and Oates (Kate Micucci) is questioning whether or not she is suffering from "Peter Pan" syndrome. While earlier in this thread I did call sit-coms "stupid and insufferable", I found that I like the social commentary that the duo and their writers bring. And how can you NOT like a show that calls a "Make-A-Wish" kid "an uncouth individual"?

The series is ending with episode 8 this coming Thursday (at 10pm locally), but if you check around through the upcoming week on IFC you can find all 7 of the previously aired episodes along with a binge-watching session starting at 3pm or so on Thursday.

EDIT: I should add that each episode is 30 minutes with commercial breaks.

Copying Beethoven

Nice little flick. I haven't seen much portraying him as a person and Ed Harris does his usual stellar job. I caught barely a hint of Virgil in his performance.

So it's a movie with Ed Harris pretending to be a St. Bernard? :P

Yeah.

"him" refers to Beethoven.

Not true. I'd say there's a little in the beginning, and a little at the end of the first half that keeps building up. IMHO, it's directed and edited right, so it never gets boring. A lot better than the previous american Godzilla movie.

I had heard the same "nothing happens until the end". After seeing it, I'd never describe it that way.

And there were a couple of rather pleasing surprises I didn't expect.

Thanks for letting me know!
Quicksilver (1986)

Bad. Bacon-bad, Giorgio Moroder-bad, Gertz-bad.

Why, in a film ostensibly about bike couriers, is there a music and dance scene in a warehouse apartment? A producer thought "Flashdance!" so we need a chick in leotards?

Have a drinking game where you take a shot every time Bacon runs his hands through his hair. Fun-bad.

They might come from the Sumerian version of the myth or one of the dozens of other versions from the region.
