  • I have zero interest!

    In the movie, in Soderburgh, in Tatum, or in male strippers. But I'm enjoying how much ladies are enjoying it.

    I am mildly interested in a half-naked Bomer, however, but not enough to go see it.

    • The best scenes were the corny ones where the dudes all danced together in Village People style. They could have made the whole movie that shit and I would have sat there until morning. Hee!
      Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

      • That's what my friends and I were expecting! We so should've gotten drunk before!

        • So you know how I hate quirky indie movies? I finally LOVE one. I saw Moonrise Kingdom last night and it's SO GOOD.

          I think I can forgive Wes Anderson lots of things because he creates such a lovely, specific world with adorable aesthetics (although, I didn't like Darjeeling Limited). I think he's great with larger casts, particularly odd Franny and Zooey type families. So I adored The Royal Tenenbaums and I think Rushmore is very amusing! But this might be displacing the Tenenbaums as my fave Wes Anderson movie.

          The kids are SO CUTE and look like real kids. They are awkward and weird and sad and lovable and you root for their 12-year-old love despite it being insane. I LOVED it.

          • Oh, good. We ended up doing bow chicka bow wow instead of seeing a movie on our night away, so I'm hoping to see MK this weekend at some point.

            mr.o loved Rushmore and Tennebaum's, but was kind of eh on Steve Zissou and Darjeeling. I enjoyed all of them.

            • I don't blame your husband! I like to get busy on holiday, too. Ha!

              Darjeeling is the only one I just didn't like. I forgot to mention Life Aquatic! I very much enjoyed that and this movie is close in tone and aesthetics to that one. I just adored the child actors in this. Loved the girl's desperate and tacky eye shadow. Loved the boy showing off his ranger skills! Loved her magical stories and her obsession with seeing the world through binoculars.

              • I loved Rushmore, Tennenbaums, Life Aquatic, and Fantastic Mr. Fox but for some reason, I have zero desire to see MK. I really don't know why.

                (Couldn't get through Darjeeling.)

                I was with kiddos last weekend so I saw Brave and Ice Age 4 haha.

                I was expecting more from Brave tbh but all the talk in the media of the heroine being a lesbian is RIDIC. It's not like it's a conventional love story that they subvert by having her choose to be alone; it's very much intentionally NOT a love story. Also she might only be 14 or something. That's not really clear.
                I did have an interesting talk with my nephew after though (niece was too young so it was just the two of us) about bad guys and good guys. The kid perspective is fascinating.

                • Tenenbaums is my favorite movie for quality reasons, but Rushmore was made here, so it's my sentimental favorite. In my old life, we would be going to see Dark Knight tomorrow. Bye, old life!

                  • I, too, dig most Wes Anderson movies! Rushmore is definitely my jam. I don't think I hated Darjeeling? I honestly couldn't tell you one thing about it besides "The set decor was pretty."

                    • Royal Tannenbaums had Gwyneth.

                      • Grrrr. We still never made it to MK. Ended up pricing microwaves and toasters instead because both of them decided to quit this week. Oh, but we bought hangers and washcloths and came home to watch golf. So that was an exciting date night.

                        • Saw The Dark Knight Rises and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

                          Seriously, that is one LONG movie. And it's super predictable! And have I mentioned LONG? Jeez. Loved Joseph Gorden Levitt in it--he was a real bright spot. Christian Bale is sooooo serious it's emotionally draining to me. And it wouldn't be so bad that it was predictable (what isn't in super hero movie?) except that it drags it out forever. The acting is strong, the special effects are awesome and it's all well executed. But could probably be 20-30 minutes shorter (seriously, what happened to musical montages? It pick up the pace, people!).

                          I will say that I was having Aurora shooting anxiety for the first half of the movie. There are A LOT of scenes of people being terrorized with guns and it just made me feel icky! I kept thinking of how terrified the actual people in that theater must have been and how confusing it would be to process that with the movie and all its scenes of gun-driven terrorism. Very strange to think about such a thing during a movie. But since there were like 10 different scenes like that I had plenty of time to ponder it!

                          • Oh, and I assume it was just my theater but the sound was soooo loud it hurt my hurts at many points. And I barely understood a thing the villain Bane said during the entire movie. So I didn't understand the mythology of him living in a dungeon in some faraway land.

                            • I just saw Dark Knight Rises and I actually really liked it. I did find Bane's voice really distracting. It sounded like a bad Sean Connery impression through a Darth Vader mask or something.

                              • Is Brave still now showing? Anyways, this is going to make the anti-patriarchy RAGE: http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/08/1...g-distressing/

                                'Brave' director Brenda Chapman breaks silence: Getting taken off film 'heartbreaking... devastating... distressing'

                                When Pixar’s Brave arrived in theaters in June, two directors shared full credit for the film: Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman. The project had originated with Chapman — who’d previously directed DreamWorks Animation’s The Prince of Egypt — but at the beginning of 2011, the studio took the reins from her completely and handed them to Andrews, who’d worked on The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

                                It was a surprising development to say the least, given that Chapman had been Pixar’s first female director of a feature length film, not to mention that Brave featured the studio’s first female protagonist, a fiery Scottish archer-princess named Merida (Kelly Macdonald). But other than a brief comment to the Los Angeles Times in 2011 that the split was due to “creative differences,” Chapman has remained silent on the matter. Until now.
                                In an essay for a larger New York Times feature about women’s perpetual underrepresentation in all corners of Hollywood, Chapman wrote that the past year and a half had been “a heartbreakingly hard road” for her. “When Pixar took me off of Brave — a story that came from my heart, inspired by my relationship with my daughter — it was devastating,” she writes.

                                While she still does not go into any specifics about why she was removed from the film, Chapman makes quite clear she did not agree with the decision. “Animation directors are not protected like live-action directors, who have the Directors Guild to go to battle for them,” she writes. “We are replaced on a regular basis — and that was a real issue for me. This was a story that I created, which came from a very personal place, as a woman and a mother. To have it taken away and given to someone else, and a man at that, was truly distressing on so many levels.”

                                Chapman does point out that ultimately her “vision” remained in the film, and that she remains “very proud of the movie.” But her last word on the matter (for now) would seem to suggest that after reportedly leaving Pixar to consult on an animation project for Lucasfilm, she’s not eager to return. “Sometimes women express an idea and are shot down, only to have a man express essentially the same idea and have it broadly embraced,” she writes. “Until there is a sufficient number of women executives in high places, this will continue to happen.”
                                When reached by EW, Pixar declined to comment.
