I think I'm going to join into this because even getting close to finishing the 50 book challenge is completely out of question for me, lol.

This is actually the intention of the thread.

I saw Drive the other day with Ryan Gosling, honestly one of the best films I've seen in a while, although it was terribly graphic i still thought he played the character absolutely wonderfully and he really deserved an Oscar Nomination for his role in Drive.

Here are some other suggestions, these are some of my favorites of all time so I'm sure everyone else will enjoy them immensely...

How To Steal A Million (1966)
A Single Man (2009)
Saturday Night Fever (1977)
Drive (2011)
Annie Leibovitz : Life Through A Lens (Documentary)
Sex And The City : The Movie (2008)
Black Swan (2010)
Cabaret (1972)
Mannequin (1987)
The Birds (1963)
Love Actually (2003)
Pretty Woman (1990)
Avatar (2009)
The Piano (1993)

I don't really love rating or reviewing movies either. I like talking about movies, but I am just terrible at reviewing things.

23. The Seventh Victim (1943)
24. I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
25. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000)
26. Albert Nobbs (2011)

001. A Dangerous Method (David Cronenberg)
002. Submarine (Richard Ayoade)
003. Rosemary's Baby (Roman Polanski)
004. Lolita (Adrian Lyne)
005. Stay (Marc Forster)
006. Take Shelter (Jeff Nichols)
007. J.Edgar (Clint Eastwood)


Take Shelter is definitely worth watching. It blew me away, and Michael Shannon is perfect, there's no other word. What a performance!

1. Bee Movie (2007)
2. Clash of the Titans (2010)
3. I'm Still Here (2010)
4. Frost/Nixon (2008)
5. Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008)
6. Mary and Max (2009)
7. 50 First Dates (2004)
8. Revolutionary Road (2008)



Revolutionary Road
(2008)
A story that takes place in the 1950s about a married couple (Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet) that was once dreamers.
Now they are stuck in an unsatisfied life in the suburbs of Connecticut.

The movie keeps it's focus on Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's characters, with few but well cast supporting characters
such as Kathy Bates and especially Michael Shannon.

It's a good movie, no doubt about that; I just feel it was missing something before it was a great movie. But I am unable to
put my finger on it. I am considering that it's because I'm not at the right point in my life to fully connect with the story and
the emotions of the characters.

I feel it's a movie that will be good to rewatch after a couple of months.

I do recommend you watch this movie, you should just know that it is a slow paced movie.

Yeah, you should watch it. Don't expect a catastrophe film though, it's really about the main character and what's going on in his head, his apocalyptic visions. The rhythm of the film is very calm. but that's the strength of the movie.

Mistique, I thought that Revolutionary Road was perfect. But maybe that's because I can relate to their story somehow. But even apart from that, I thought the distress of the characters was really well shown, you can feel how much they suffer from this life, not being able to do anything but accept it. Dicaprio and Winslet make a great screen couple. Dicaprio literally (well, not literally) broke my heart. One of his best performance as an actor, IMO.

You should watch this deleted scene from the movie : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F077iTfC0wk
It gets me everytime.

watched this one yesterday as well and found it incredibly cathartic; nothing like a graphic LA heist movie with minimal dialogue and a brooding swashbuckler to purge the rage away

my only trouble with awards movies like these is that by the time i get to watch the film itself i find that it always comes short of the excessive hype it garnered, despite how great it actually is even The Artist managed to come off short, and out of all the movies i watched i enjoyed Our Idiot Brother the most, possibly due to my low expectations perhaps i should just shut myself off the internet altogether by the time awards season comes along, to stop spoiling myself
