OH MAN SO GOOD. holy shit. we can have long discussions about it, but uh, keep it spoiler free i suppose?

    I'd like to see it, but I don't think it's showing anywhere around me. I'll probably just wait for the DVD.

    I'm not such a huge fan of blue.

    I prefer green.

    You should change your name to Green is Beautiful.

    well okay then


    (man, they censored the shit out of Raising Arizona on CMT. Like, not even cleverly adding new words, they'd just cut the tape and splice it right after the swear. They even cut out the word "ass" so Nathan Arizona said "And if a frog had wings, it wouldn't bu/ahoppin". It was pretty craptacular.)

    you know

    i was talking with a pal about this the other day, and i think king films get a bad rap

    sure there's a couple bad ones like night flier and dreamcatcher

    but

    needful things, carrie, creepshow, the shining, firestarter, stand by me, the running man, it, misery, green mile, etc.

    there are a damn shitpile of awesome king films

    I love you rank but you don't know your head from a donkey dick on this one

    besides which 1408 was pretty good

    and the director was behind the shawshank redemption AND the green mile

    two very good stephen king films

    It was directed by Frank Darabont, who also made The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, both great movies based on Stephen King stories.

    running man had nothing to do with king, it was absolutely nothing like the book

    green mile was hokey as sin

    firestarter I never saw

    and yeah, shining and stand by me and misery were great, IT was awesome for a TV movie but didn't age real well

    but god damn, he's got some terrible fucking movies out there

    the for-tv remake of the shining

    the tommyknockers

    the langoliers

    that abortion he made for TV that was supposed to be The Stand

    1408

    that ridiculous fucking johnny depp one from a few years back, whatever it was called

    fucking every other goddamn thing he's done

    its a shame, really, because he really is one hell of a good writer when he's got good inspiration

    the stand is one of my favorite fucking books of all goddamn time

    but the dude's best movies are the ones where he really has no involvement in them whatsoever, or when they actually rewrite the story enough to make it work on film

    SHawshank Redemption is a notable exception, though. That movie is just perfect from start to finish, and damn accurate to the original story.

    yeah, and tuturro is almost always amazing, and depp can do great work when he's got a good script and director

    but holy damn that movie was overboiled turds

    yea the bad guy, Javier Bardem, has been amazing in everything he's been in. think of him as the spanish Kevin Spacey.

    i mean when you watch the movie or if you've seen it already, would you think that motherfucker was spanish?


    i've seen this movie like 3 times because people keep going and i just go with them. it's that good. there's a lot of little coen things in it. they like to show off how good they are writing/directing, but it doesn't take away from it.

    it's like everyone in this movie is just in there to be badass or to be badassed upon.
