    Just rewatched CLoud Atlas streaming online
    I'll get it on Bluray this month and watch it again.
    Was better even the second time, now that I could pay attention to details and the scene transitions/edits.

    I could also better track all the people throughout the narrative and see the parallels among the lives involving various characters. Karma is even more apparent, and self-betterment; Zachary in particular had the most mottled life of everyone but in the end seems to come out ahead because of an act of bravery on his part, setting aside the known in the face of fear of the unknown. Other characters (especially Hugh Grant and Hugo Weaving's characters) seem to just end up in a worse and worse place.

    As a bizarre parallel, Frobisher and SixSmith both have the exact same kind of experience with firearms. But there are numerous parallels throughout the movie that get lost on first pass.

    My iconoclastic side appreciated the particular twist you are describing, but at the same time I'm not sure it added anything useful to the movie tone-wise and might have trivialized it a bit.

    Still, it was pretty funny.

    And, as a general point overall, I would like to state for the record that Ben Kingsley is an awesome guy.



    Overall, I thought Iron Man 3 had the weakest villain, where Iron Man 2 had the villain with the most potential (but man, did they drop the ball with him).
    Not sure what I think, but I understand what you would view it that way.

    it was to see Rebecca Hall. I've loved her ever since The Prestige.

    Another thing I liked about it was how it reminded me of '80s action movies, and why wouldn't it? Lethal Weapon and Iron Man 3 had the same writer.

    One thing I couldn't stand though was

    I just saw "Iron Man 3" as well. I literally think that I cried in the movie theater when I saw what they did with the Mandarin. It just didn't do him justice. I did like the movie overall though. I would give it about a 7.5 out of 10.

    In the After Earth trailer, Will Smith calls it Earth, and not Earf.

    I was never much of a comic book reader. And with books I have read, I tend not to compare them to the movies. And in many cases, I think the changes made in movies work better, such as Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. I thought giving him the ability to biologically produce a web was a much better idea than inventing a device...because I think it made him more of a spider/man than just simply climbing the walls.

    But I knew next to nothing about Iron Man before the movie came out. And even if I did, I don't think that I would've cared about the character changes that much. I liked Iron Man 3 as a movie, overall.

    The Cabin in The Woods: I totally forgot it was a Joss Wheadon film, but i got really excited watching the beginning credits. I'm 19 minutes in but I like it so far, kinda creepy, but creepy in a cool way.

    The Great Gatsby. The only things that kept me awake were the production values, the occasionally catchy soundtrack, and the fact that I didn't downright hate it the way I did Moulin Rouge. It was also decent enough of director Baz Luhrmann to chill the fuck out with his rapid cuts so that the average shot is now increased to about a second long, which is no doubt an improvement (a few times, the shots are long enough that we actually get a chance to enjoy the lavish production design).

    i'm actually entertained.
    watching the whole playlist.
    wtf is wrong with me.

    The contrast between then & now is stark. (there are modern ads playing between each new volume)
    Older commercials seem more.. personal. More.. effort? Catchier jingles. Hilarious narration (even when it's unintentional). Different camera angles..

    Silver linings playbook was surprisingly charming and fresh. Stamped with approval!
