Oh my word. I just saw Tom Hooper's new Les Mis...
WTF. I mean, I don't really get into that particular musical to begin with, but the film version is just hilariously bad. Laughable. What were any of them thinking? Especially the leading three - it was like they were having a competition to see who could act and sing the worst.

Spy Game - Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. (I was watching the Golden Globes but quickly lost interest.)

I watched Melancholia, and my God, why do disaster movies like The Day After Tomorrow, Armageddon, and 2012 get pounded for their scientific implausibility and this one gets a free pass? And to top it all off, it was really boring.

Scarface with Al Pacino as the unforgettable Tony Montana, which I’ve seen before. Set in 80s Miami, the film follows a Cuban refugee’s rise to power in the underworld from the time he steps off the boat. It’s a fiesta of gangsters, guns, profuse usage of the f-word and coke. And when you fuck with Tony Montana, you are fucking with the best. He proves it at the end, when it takes at least a hundred bullets to bring him down.

Django. Enjoyed it a lot. I am surprised this film was made though. 8/10

I thought it was rather good, but very N, so not for everyone.
It isn't the "scientific implausibility" that makes 2012 or Prometheus poor movies. It is the absence of anything approaching heart. It is inauthenticity of feeling, not action, that leaves us feeling uninspired.
I can understand why a fan of the disaster movie would be "bored" by an art-house movie. These genres have different audiences. It was typically subversive of von Trier to attempt a movie that would straddle that middle ground, and ultimately satisfy no one.

It wasn't that I was more "bored" by Melancholia than 2012 (good Lord, I couldn't even make it through 2012 because it was headache-inducing), it's that Melancholia was extremely stupid and pretentious. One needs no comparison films to come to that conclusion.Artes, Scientia, Veritasiness
