  • Finally got to see it. Didnt think it would live up to the Oscar's hype. But I loved it. Great flick.

    Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert Deniro... all amazing. Even really loved Chris Tucker.

  • GREAT acting (best I've seen from DeNiro in ages). Thought the storyline was a bit of a stretch though. They were obviously falling in love as time went on so let it happen naturally rather than the "sudden" thing at the end. I know, dramatic effect and all but with that kind of movie I thought it uneccessary and forced. Otherwise very good though I thought Argo was better.

    Argo was a really good movie, but a bit boring, imo. I think the best movie I saw this year was Django Unchained.

    Really good but a bit boring??? Send mixed messages much? Can you be more wishy washy? Way to ride the fence.

    I'm watching it tonight.

    Not wishy washy at all. Really good movie making. Really good acting. Really good directing. All that technical stuff. Just not a real entertaining movie. I'm glad I saw it but its not one that i'll rent again or buy and watch multiple times.

    So it was a really good movie, but a bit boring.

  • Pretty much any movie with Jennifer Lawrence is automatically amazing. That said, I still need to watch this movie.

  • I enjoyed this film quite a bit. And I agree, Chris Tucker played a nice role in it.

    And Jennifer Lawrence? Yum.

  • I thought it was pretty good, not amazing but a good watch.

    Argo was boring to me.

    Django rocked.

  • Watched Silver Linings last night. It was okay but I don't understand what all the hype was about. It was better than Argo which I found to be plain bad.

  • Dajngo was good for my money, but not great. I'm not a huge Tarentino fan.

  • Django was one of the better movies I have seen in a fairly long while. O thought it was very good. I'm going to say something bold and expect backlash. That's Tarentinos best film. Yeah I said it.

    Completely agree with Django being his best.

    I'd go 1. Django 2. Inglorious Basterds 3. Pulp Fiction 4. Reservoir Dogs

    That's close to my order. Swap Jackie Brown for Dogs. Had Basterds had better editing (cut shorter) it might be closer.

  • Just unrealistic. OCD NFL who's been banned from the stadium? Another dude ends up in a nut hut and whiny over some dumb broad? That guy seemingly has trouble find him, when he does eventually go to a game?

    Fairy tale stuff.

  • Great movie. One of my favorites in a long time. Bradley Cooper is phenomenal. Jennifer Lawrence is whatever word is better than phenomenal. Definitely gonna give it another watch before the weekend's up.

    Side note: If you're into dialogue driven awkward situations and such, I ran across a movie the other night called It's A Disaster with David Cross and Julia Stiles (coincidentally enough, haven't seen her in a few years and she just pops up twice in the same week? weird) and a bunch of other hot chicks. I'd never heard of it and I was perusing movie trailers and it stuck out for some reason. Glad I gave it a chance. Not quite Silver Linings good but it's a fun watch and I highly recommend it.
