Judging by that director's other movies, I'd be willing to give it a chance.

Me too, exactly, just based on his previous films, even if this one seems a big change of pace. Although I do tend to be slightly Agoraphobic. (Sorry!)

I tried to go see Splice last night and the framing was all kinds of screwed up. Stretched and not even fully on the screen. I was pissed. Walked out. I'm going back today to speak with a manager because that "this theater is old" crap don't fly. >:|

I was pretty sharp with the ticket taker. Stressful week - car accidents blow.

Yikes Battie! Maybe you need something more escapist than Splice anyway. (Though actually it is kind of escapist in its way)

Meanwhile, God help me I'm going to see Get Him to the Greek with my dad (!) tomorrow, as we had to find something neither of us had seen that allowed us to kill some time in the afternoon before my future bro in law's bachelor party. Too bad we'd already seen The Hangover, but this'll do.

I actually want to see that. I like Russell Brand. Bromance doesn't move me though.

My bf wants to see "Get Him to the Greek" as well. I don't get it myself.

I am so not watching "Marmaduke" (even though I like Lee Pace, both in "Pushing Daisies" and "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day"). Not only did the trailer look lame, but the toys at Burger King sure are.

Winter's Bone looks really interesting. And the young, female star is neither a bad actress (in the trailer, anyway) nor likely to illicit instant comments about one's boner. [Thank God.] Think it hits Dallas on the 25th. :D

I know, I really want to see "Winter's Bone." Hooray for summer counter-programming, especially when the mainstream movies are crappy!

Get Him to the Greek was surprisingly good! Well done. Enough laughs to satisfy me. Jonah Hill and Brand were both terrific. It's fun to see Elisabeth Moss in a different role than Mad Men (sort of). There are dumb moments and yes the Bromantic elements ;-) but overall for the genre I'd give it an A-. It's not The Hangover but not far off...

Oh and Puff Daddy kills it! Who knew he could be that funny?

Winter's Bone is supposed to be good indeed; I was sorry I missed it at the SFIFF. Might go see "The Father of My Children" next weekend, too.

Anyone seen the Ken Loach soccer film? Speaking of the World Cup.

I'm pretty amazed and somewhat ashamed to have yet seen a movie in theaters this summer season. Then again, I think that speaks for the lack of worthwhile films this year.

Glad to hear "Get him to the Greek" was surprisingly good, though I ultimately see myself renting this one instead.

I'm kinda enticed by "Inception", even if the trailers make it basically look like a live-action anime.

"Toy Story 3" was just plain delightful, but I didn't see it in 3D, and I read that the short film "Day and Night" was fantastic in 3D.

Seeing it this weekend, can't wait! I did hear (maybe it was Roger Ebert?) that TS3 in 3D isn't really worth the extra cost. It's not as good as How to Train Your Dragon (the 3D that is). But I look forward to seeing it and the short!

What I don't get is why Burger King as "Eclipse" toys with the kids meals when the movie is rated PG-13? The toys themselves are not as lame as those for "Iron Man 2" but still not that fun (although I can't wait to get a Growlin' Jacob, whatever that is).

And, no, I'm not going to see the movie. Although I've read the series, I haven't seen any of the movies and I'm not about to either.

Eclipse is the new one in the Twilight franchise?
I'd have a bigger concern about them having toys from it than just the rating. Isn't the target audience mostly tweeny/teeny girls who are probably going through a "meat is gross" phase? And probably publicly not wanting to be lumped in with the little kids who get meals with toys?

Yes.

Which is probably why the "Eclipse" toys are not mentioned on the Burger King site (www.clubbk.com).

I saw Eclipse yesterday. I spent most of it with my headphones on, desperately wishing I hadn't let a friend talk me into watching a movie with the most godawful emo dialogue evar. >:|

But then I went to see Winter's Bone...which was awesome. The harshness of that life was written all over the characters faces. I honestly think that's probably the best drama I've seen in years. The small details of the life...like drinking water out of a reused jam jar, teaching the kids how to properly handle and use firearms, etc. And the this-is-life ending. Winter's Bone is one of those movies that uses the show-not-tell rule. It's a movie you think about afterwards. And it may be the only American movie I've seen in a decade where nothing was polished, where the actors looked like people, and not emaculately coiffed and made up. Where the dirtiness of life wasn't met with immediate use of hand sanitizer and 'eeewww.' Basically, if you don't or can't catch it in theaters, rent it when it hits dvd. Totally worth it.

And finally, a movie where violence against a woman doesn't also include sexual violence or intimidation. I was getting tired of every single criminal also being a rapist and/or child molester.

I'm with you Battie -- Winter's Bone is one of the best films I've seen so far this year. Talk about Girl power/girls overcoming the odds! She kicks Bella's ass. ;-)

Such an evocative, even chilling portrayal of rural American life, a couple of unforgettably disturbing scenes. But ultimately redemptive. It's a knockout.

Meanwhile, I can't believe there's another "Girl" movie coming out already -- Girl Who Played With Fire opens Friday. Good thing I just finished that book last week. Now reading the third and final book. I feel like the 2nd book is the best of the 3, but we'll see. Curious about the film. I reviewed the first here.

INCEPTION opens on Friday. Who's going?

Boy there's already a lot of sniping about it from various film critics and bloggers via Twitter. Kind of amusing but I'm trying to avoid that crap as long as possible 'til I see it and judge for myself.

I'm planning to see "Inception" sometime this weekend. I've been noticing mostly good buzz for it, but I don't really care whether it's too intellectual to be a summer blockbuster, as some have said.
