    Agreed, although the opening scene of Ryan is maybe the best scene I've ever... well, seen.

    I'm currently filling out my KSR movie bracket, and decided to watch, "There will be blood" great movie.
    [​IMG]

    The rule is; is you haven't seen it, you can't vote. I hadn't seen "There will be blood"

    Piss intermission is over.

    Just watched Tombstone last night, what a classic.

    Anyone watch Better Call Saul and/or Fargo?

    My mom put Fargo right up with The Wire and Game of Thrones, which is pretty high praise.

    I watched the first season of Saul, and it was GREAT. But with work and the kids and wifes work, haven't watched any more:(

    Never seen the Shawshank Redemption but I have a hard time putting any movies above SPR. I can think of maybe one or two off the top of my head that I enjoy more.

    I don't see Philadelphia in that bracket. It won T. Hanks an Oscar. Great movie.

    Oh shit, you have a treat ahead of you. As a devotee of SPR, and as someone who has watched BoB maybe... I don't know, a thousand times...? and considers it the finest piece of media ever produced... I have a hard time putting ANYTHING about Shawshank. It is just a perfect, quiet, powerful movie.

    BTW, not sure I will be able to handle The Mighty Eighth, the new BoB of the air campaign, also from Hanks and Spielberg. The air war was really f'ing horrible, and I'm not sure how much "fun" it will be to watch (not that BoB was fun, but...) Budget of a half a billion dollars. Yikes.

    The one I have been waiting a lifetime for is the HBO Napoleon series. Apparently Spielberg is doing it, with the director from the first season of True Detective directing. Holy shitballs... show me the Old Guard advancing using modern film tech and I'll die a happy man.

    Fargo is very high up in my list of shows, as well. Great acting, great storylines, great cinematography (camera work), just great overall.

    Saul is a great show as well. Especially as they piece together some of the background that ends up happening in Breaking Bad.

    Shawshank beat the Departed in OT to make the FF for me.

    SPR lost to the 8-seed in round 2 for me. Like Schindler's List, SPR is a very important film to see... once. After that, I find both so heavy-handed that they just don't rank well with me.

    Wait, so you can't vote on a particular match-up or you can't vote at all? There were 3 I haven't seen on the whole bracket. They all would have faced one of my E8 or FF movies in the next round anyway.

    Fair enough. SPR is one of those movies for me that if its on TV, I'm watching from that point on. I'm a huge Hanks fan. But yea, definitely need to see Shawshank when I have some time. I hear so many good things about it. Schindler's List is a fantastic film as well. Very powerful.

    That was just the rules they were playing with. I'm using the sheet as a way to get ideas for movies I've never saw. I've tried watching Schindler's list 3 times and fell asleep all three times. IDK if I'm going to try again. My wife loved it.

    I am loving the new seasons of Fargo and BCS. Billions was good this season, and Silicon Valley IMO is by far the best comedy on tv right now.

    I'm a King nerd and am fully aware that the movie is going way off from the books but I'm still pretty stoked.

    In that bracket deal I've never seen 'Wolf of Wall Street', 'Gangs of New York', 'Gone Girl', 'Nightcrawler' (saw part of it but thought it was kind of dull), 'Do The Right Thing', and 'Schindler's List'.

    I've heard as much. Just haven't got around to seeing them. Two movies I would add to the brackets would be 'Snatch' and 'The Usual Suspects'. Actually, there are a number of horror movies (Wicker Man, The Shining, The Thing, etc...) I would add but I know those don't fly in things like this.

    I've heard this supposed to be set after the last book, sort of Roland's last chance. Supposedly if it does well they will make all the books as prequels to this movie.

    Yeah, sort of I think. It is supposed to be sort of a reset. Since he has the Horn of Eld in some of the pictures it is thought Roland is on a different quest now, since he perpetually gets reset somewhere after going to the top of the tower. This is one of the later quests after the last book then. It is also a bit different as in 'there are other worlds than these' so is kind of just a different take on it. King has kind of said this at least.

    Honest, a literal take on the books would have been difficult since I'm not sure what the starting point would be. Going chronologically it would have started as something way different than what it becomes as the time line progresses, which would have been hard for Hollywood to gauge in terms. Then of course there was the idea of a number of movies with several TV miniseries in between. Honestly, HBO doing a series with it would have been absolutely ideal but that was never going to happen.

    The story is definitely considerably different from the book but as long as the 'constant reader' accepts that they should enjoy it.

    The Usual Suspects is the 8-seed in the MW (my FF pick from that region). The Shining is the 3-seed in the MW (taken out by 11-seed Karate Kid in the second round).

    Saw an early screening of Guardians 2 last night....if you liked the first one, you will love this one. A genuinely incredibly entertaining movie. Not one bit that I didn't enjoy. Hope you all see it and enjoy it.

    Have heard good things, that it has a lot of heart (which is important!) Also heard it was a bit overboard with the music and action, but what can you do...

    The music is a big part of the movie, as it should be, imo. The music is really all Quill has left of his mother. How can you have too much action in a comic book movie?

    That would be like having too much Darth Vador in a Star Wars movie. Impossible.

    I'm going to check it out in 3D as early as tonight (viewing last night was making sure that the file downloaded properly before showing it to the paying public, so we only watched the 2D version). It was an orgy for the eyes in some parts, incredible.

    My wife hated it. This morning, I watched docs Oklahoma City, American Anarchist (about the author of Anarchist cookbook), and Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press. All were well done.

    Oh yeah, NOT a movie for wives. My wife asked if she would like it... I was like HELL no. It was pretty wild to finally see Wolverine doing the damage he would actually do with those claws... it was almost stunningly violent, to me... I think I was still expecting SOME sort of comic book movie, you know? I am trying to get her to watch Deadpool, though... funny ass movie, and Reynolds is just awesome in that role.

    And the fact that they played Man In Black over the credits made me about as happy as anything could ever make me.

    I'm really glad Thrasher Magazine's "King of the Road" has went from ~ an hour long release to full seasons on Viceland.

    Season 02 is hilariously awesome.
