There are just so many good movies out right now that I need to see.

 

Saw Lone Survivor last week. Great movie.

 

Also want to see American Hustle, Her, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Saw the new Jack Ryan movie.  Was decent but they probably could have fleshed the plot out a tad bit more.

I didn't say she's the only one.  But you gotta have one classy, mature woman on the list.

Helen Mirren is more my speed in that demographic.

American Hustle is fantastic IMO. Bale was very De Niro like I thought.

You're right and the movie was very Goodfellas-like. 

 

I love Goodfellas but thats why I'm not crazy about AH. I enjoyed it, the cast did great work and it was entertaining but it lacked an original voice. Bale was De Niro and the movie felt like Goodfellas. Which is ironic because Russell has a unique way about his movies.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Funny you mention it, I watched a movie last night that was a mafia movie made by Scorsese, but it was an action/comedy called The Family. Had De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, Michelle Pfeifer and had quite a few Goodfellas references. It was surprisingly good as a lighter take on a mafia movie.

Did Scorcese produce The Family? I know he didn't direct it.

Yeah produced by Scorsese and directed by Luc Besson. I kept laughing at how it almost seemed like a love story to Goodfellas in a way, and then I saw the credits and said OOOOHHHHH that makes sense.

Yeah, I remember when that came out. Seemed interesting.

Captain Phillips, yet another great 2013 film. Greengrass is so good at these true story thrillers. 9/10

Captain Phillips is probably the best movie from 2013 I've seen.

 

I've still been underwhelmed though.

 

Top 5 is 

 

1. Captain Phillips

2. Wolf of Wall Street

3. Gravity

4. Fruitvale Station

5. American Hustle

Forgot about Mud. I did like that.

Still need to see 12YAS, Her and Philomena.

I really like the "Before" series, especially the second one, but this third one I just found myself wanting to slap both of them and tell them to shut up. I did think it was a good movie but it really made these characters annoying and unlikeable. Maybe they were all along.

Linklater's next movie, Boyhood, is getting raves at Sundance. Shot over 12 years with the same actors following a boy from 6-18. Sounds like the dedication paid off. I'm with you on Before Midnight it was just so well done and rang so true.

It was only in theaters for a few weeks, small release. But it's great.

Is that the one with Ethan Hawke?  I remember seeing that on IMDB like 5 or 6 years ago on Hawk's page as "The Untitled 12 Year Project"
