I didn't really like The Master all that much. It's in the same book as Raging Bull for me, I can recognise the achievement and the tremendous acting, I just did not enjoy watching it.

The Social Network is pretty much perfect in my mind, there's not a single superfluous scene, not a single empty shot, not a single unconvincing acting performance and not a single moment where the soundtrack does anything but add to the experience. Combine that with the topicality of the subject matter and you've got the film of the decade.

Love how this scene highlights the difference Facebook/social media has done to societal attitudes:



Hadn't really noticed that in my previous viewings.
Well, that's hard for me, considering that Raging Bull is my favourite film of all time. It has everything.

Social Network is a tremendous achievement. It's like a modern Citizen Kane. Or Network. Or something, I don't know. It's not really a modern anything, it's just its own, and that's probably what makes it brilliant.
Fincher is a modern day master. Very few filmmakers are on his level.
I should probably give Raging Bull another shot at some point.
The answer to that rhetorical question would be a definite yes.

This.

Most people I know liked it, but as you said, I genuinely think its as close to perfect a film as you can get.

The Social Network is most definitely a defining film of our era. Agree that it's practically perfect, I love it even more with each watch.

Wolf of Wall Street: how awesome is it that Scorsese -- a man 71 years old -- is still able to produce such a destructively manic, sinful ride like that? It moves like a rocket, and I love how it's basically a dagger into the heart of the American dream whilst shoving the greedy allure of it right in your face. God damn what a film.

And The Master. Rewatched it this week in light of the tragic news from last weekend and yeah, that film is so fascinating. That relationship between Freddie and Lancaster is so rich and layered, so primal and deeply human. I could probably watch it a million times more and still pick up on new themes and character moments. Phillip Seymour Hoffman was such an extraordinary actor and it's a such an enormous shame that he's gone.
Just watched Filth. Though McAvoy was good and liked how the story successively grew crazy but I didn't really like the directing.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman was such an extraordinary actor and it's a such an enormous shame that he's gone.

I'll back that statement by 100%.

Scorsese is a fucking master. Without a doubt one of the very best film directors in history.

Back on The Master, I remember when this fucking thing came out:


I would watch it like five times a day, just absolutely astonished and intrigued as to what kind of film we would get.
Phoenix' performance in that small teaser trailer (a scene that isn't even in the film) is enough for him to win the Oscar alone. Fuck Lincoln.
I was looking for and couldn't find that a while back, 'cos I was sure I remembered something that wasn't in the film. Thanks.
I want to see The Lego Movie.

Seems to be getting good reviews as well

Gravity.

Very good, though just like with Life of Pi last year I definitely feel that I missed out on much of the experience by not seeing it at a cinema.

Same here. Local cinemas only have early showings of the dubbed version planned now though, so unless they offer a late-night showing with the English audio I'll skip it.

Just watched the Oldboy remake.

What an absolute load of piss. Not surprising, obviously, but still.
No beauty, no pain, no poetry, no emotions at all. Just a fucking dumb and grim thriller.

Elizabeth Olsen is pretty good though.

I can't persuade any of my mates to come see it with me :L

I'm going to see The Lego Movie in a few hours - having younger siblings comes in handy.

I did go and see Dallas Buyer's Club last week as well and thought it was very good. It didn't blow me away but I was impressed with everything about it, especially the acting. Props to Jared Leto for playing that role and Matthew McConaughey was superb as well.
Oh man Her is just beautiful. So personal, melancholic and thoughtful.

Loved it. This start of the year has been ridiculously good.
Technically it's from 2013, but... yes..
Watched Frozen last night and it was by far and away one of the worst Disney films I've ever seen.

The only saving grace was Olaf and Sven.
I've just watched The Shawshank Redemption for the first time, amazingly. I thought it was very good although I couldn't help but feel I already knew half of the story due to how often it's referenced in modern day culture.

Glad to hear that. I love the idea. Did you see the latest season of Black Mirror? From what I've heard it's a similar sort of premise to Her, although I'm sure it's done in a very different way.

FUCK SHAWSHANK
Moonrise Kingdom.

I liked it, but perhaps not as much as I thought I would. I found it enjoyable to watch and thought all of the performances were good, but perhaps it didn't captivate me in a way I thought a Wes Anderson film would.
Watched The Hunger Games on Netflix the other night, really enjoyed it actually. Need to see the second one now which ive heard is much better so looking forward to that.

I thought it was watchable but pretty underwhelming.
Just reminded me of Battle Royale.

Thats the reason the stopped going ahead with the remake of it. They where planning it then Hunger Games come out. "Audiences would see it as just a copy of Games — most of them wouldn't know that ‘Battle Royale’ came first. It's unfair, but that's reality."

I am so pumped for the new Godzilla movie. Looks awesome.

Can't be any worse than the last Godzilla film.
After discussing The Social Network recently, seems appropriate to mention that Fincher is apparently going to team up with Aaron Sorkin again for his new Steve Jobs film.
I went to see the Lego Movie.

It was pretty good apart from the cheesy ending, but I guess thats what you expect when you go see a kids film.

EVERYTHING IS AAAAAAAAWESSSOOOOOOME xInfinity
Her.

Loved it.
