      And the new Where the Wild Things Are trailer is online and awesome.
      I can't find the new trailer :(

      ...but I did find this:

      • i just came back from 500 days, i really liked it. it was humorous, but at the same time it was ******* depressing. i might have liked it more, because they used downtown LA, and made it a part of the film, also the references to the kind of music that i like.

        i'm in love with zooey, but her character is very true to life, so it makes you hate her for a second or 2.

              • Jackie Brown & Reservoir Dogs

                Jackie Brown is a 5 yrs. later Tarantino ('97) vintage so it s/b better. JB is a polished thriller storyline with distinctly drawn characters brilliantly performed, while Reservoir Dogs is a raw ensemble cast crime story/whodunit from Tarantino when he was still young & right out of that LA video store.

                The cohesion of the team in RD is more important than the individuals, & with no love among thieves, the stress between all those in the interplay between the ensemble after the robbery really makes it a compelling dramatic & worthwhile film, I've never heard anyone say anything negative about Jackie BrownRD is also a more performance-driven too, relatively young actors like Roth & Madsen at the time mixed with grizzled vets like Keitel made a great cast, you're just transfixed by these performances on a bare bones minimal stage. RD had a better hook too - --(SPOILER ALERT --> hook = who's the mole among the Dogs, & oh yeah there's torture scene set to pop music that is only topped by Bale/Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, maybe that's where they got the idea originally). It has a classic Temptations/Motown soundtrack too

                Nobody writes better crime characters than Elmore Leonard, though Ellroy & Crumley came close among post-mod crime fictionalists IMO, the film Jackie Brown is so very razoredge close to Leonard's original text. It's well cast, Robert Forster & Pam Grier give career performances, & Sam L. Jackson established the role model for the badass lethal ************ character in Odell that he would do in a variation for Tarantino later in Pulp Fiction -- Odell is still nightmare-scary in his own right, one of the best stone killers ever done in filmdom. Hell yeah, it's one of my personal faves, I give it 4 stars ****. Rent it asap if you havent seen it.

                • I'm thinking about going to see Funny People tonight. Is it worth paying $8.50 for?

                      I really enjoyed it after people here tempered my excitement. I enjoyed all parts of the movie. It got awkward and weird, but that was part of the point.

                      Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                        Unless it's some rare showing, no movie is ever worth that.

                        • If you're coming to the point where you're asking whether it's worth the money or not, it's not worth it. And personally, I don't think it is.

                          • Reservoir Dogs I think is better than Jackie Brown. Raw and Low Budge, but more classic and there are a lot of lines in that movie that are more memorable. I don't tip.

                            • Reservoir Dogs is head and shoulders above Jackie Brown.
