I do love The Shining and get through that one.
OT again, but Girls (HBO show)
Ugh...where do I begin? Mumblecore, nepotism, made-for-hipster TV, the most unattractive sex scene in years. Even though I can sadly relate to some of the mid-twentysomething's problems after college, I could not stand the writing and acting from almost everyone on screen. This is basically everything that's wrong with comedy this decade.
"I would not join any club that would have someone like me for a member." - Groucho Marx
It's one of my favorite dark comedies. I think some of it is dated. It helps if you have a feel for the 1960's Cold War rhetoric.You should give Dr. Strangelove another try...IMO it was a comedy....
General "Buck" Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ratio of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn't that necessitate the abandonment of the so-called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?
Dr. Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious...service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
Ambassador de Sadesky: I must confess, you have an astonishingly good idea there, Doctor.
Oh and when Turgidson then starts screaming about a "Mine gap" he's just echoing Kennedy who ran on a "missile gap" with the Russia.
Tree Of Life - Definantly not for all, I thought it had some stunning shots but also it got boring in spots where I looked to see how much time I had left in the film. It is a beautiful shot film , and everyone gives a solid performance, it just gets a little boring at times.
"You don't understand, there was shrinkage."
Enjoyed it very much so.
