  • McAdams is smokin. I drafted her in this recent hot chick draft!

    Yesterday, I watched Love Actually and Bad Santa as Christmas movies. Bill Nighy makes the entire movie of Love Actually so awesome. Hes criminally underrated.

    And I just got back from Avatar, and holy ****, what a beautiful movie. I absolutely loved it. I found it terribly predictable, but you know what? It didnt matter. I knew what was coming, but I still had to SEE it for myself, because it just looked so god damned good. Good acting, solid story, and Ill be damned if it doesnt win every single visual effects Oscar there is. I revoke any and all complaints I made over the initial trailer looking cartoony...that was spectacular. Jimmy Cameron knows his **** and does Canada proud. Probably the most visually stimulating and impressive film I've ever seen. Absolutely stunning.

    • Bill Nighy is just one of many people that make Love, Actually awesome.

      Avatar was very good, but I can only take my praise so far. I can see these visuals, recognize their greatness, but I just don't get excited over it.

      • Also, along with Bill Nighy, Giovanni Ribisi is very underrated and is a fantastic character actor. He makes every movie he is in better.

          • Saw the trailer for Legion.... really? Angels battling with assault rifles and swords? I like Paul Bettany though.

            • Can't wait to go see Avatar. I bought my whole family tickets to Australia's only Imax cinema so it should be awesome. Still a week away though. :(

                • just watched "away we go". had low expectations but thoroughly enjoyed maya rudolph and john krasinski's comedic chemistry. the ending was too sentimental for my tastes though.

                  • Best Christmas present to self: 2-disc director's cut of Inglorius Basterds, with Tarantino commentary. So popular it's delayed a wk. in the mail, stupid Amazon sellers.... the presents you have to wait for are better, all that built-up anticipation, ya know.

                    I hope it's simultaneous comments in a marquee scroll or caption as the film progresses (as opposed to audio voiceovers) like Ridley Scott did for the Kingdom of Heaven DVD.

                    Of course a poignant review of same for my fellow posters & QT fanboys will be forthcoming.

                        I saw that a week or so ago coincidentally. I thought Kransinski was great but there was so many scenes that the movie tries to be deep and it just falls flat.

                          Avatar was stunning-spectacular-agreed it was not cartoony at all-the na'vi looked great and I enjoyed it but I would be remiss not to mention the recurring Cameron theme of depicting minorities (even ones in blue get up) in an unfavorable light. Avatar is probably his most racially friendly movie with it's theme of an indigenous people being brutalized by a market driven corporation but he couldn't resist making the Caucasian army grunt the king of the natives-i'm sure nobody ever thought to fly above that thing before.

                          The movie was incredibly entertaining and a positive story about the value of nature and courage and it could be left at that but from my perspective movies like this and countless others that reinvent the theme of the "white savior" is past cliche. Maby the wrong forum to even suggest race matters but this is the movie thread.;)

                            This looks impressive-hadn't seen a trailer yet. Thanks for the hype.

                                Good acting and solid story? I would have to disagree. I thought the acting was pretty poor all around and the predictability of the story made it a lot less entertaining. I (obviously) agree with your assessment of the visual effects - they were amazing.

                                Avatar is how video game movies need to be done. Could you imagine a motion capture Master Chief or Solid Snake doing some ridiculous things on screen? Can't wait til effects like those are the norm.
