    Keaton needs to come back for a Dark Knight Returns style standalone film.

    Escape Plan (2013) These kind of action flicks are not really my cup of tea, but I had nothing else to do, and it was on the tube. (read:no motivation). Okay as far as these things go. Plot is thin, but Sly and Arnold are thick and Jim Caviezel is alright as a psychopath. Sam Neil seems as lost and out of place as the doctor he plays. Climax was somewhat effective. Most of the acting was just tolerable. Ending weak. 2/4

    The Official Pop and Rock Music thread

    Hmm, don't know how I forgot, but today (the 21st) was Rich Mullins' birthday. He would have been 63. Singular man and singular singer-songwriter, a definite poetic and musical talent. My favorite popular music artist, although he really was at the uneasy edge of popular music and art music. Here's a playlist if any are interested, focusing on some of my favorite works of his from a poetry angle.

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    General consensus was that it was a bit underwhelming. Jay thought so too, but he might have become a bit more positive about it after another listen.
  7. I rather like this thread. Completely missed it.

    Well, Hamlet is about as dark as plays come and Shakespeare put in some of the same kind of odd, kind of creepy, humor there. I do not find Schindler's List or Hamlet "funny." All the elements just seem to play off each other, bringing each other into focus for a full human picture. The focus of the movie is, indeed, on Schindler. But that is because Spielberg seems primarily interested in exploring the psyche of non-Jews in the situation, with the symbolism of the girl in red for example. Why was this done? Why did some not go along with it? Why did they not do more? Spielberg's magnum opus in my book.
  10. Why do these YouTube videos seem to always have an image of the presenter on the bottom right, making some sort of quizzical face?

    Yes, the car chase after the Mercedes with a stop at the mobile home ain't that bad at all. And, the scene where Riggs' car gets hit from behind onto the train tracks, that one quite effectively shatters a calm atmosphere, and yet, you kind of think back and realize you should have seen it coming. Best kind of surprise. Hmmm, I might try to watch 4 again completely on its own, maybe I'll come round to giving it a 3/4. No. 2. The best of the bunch, to me at least.

    Lethal Weapon 2 Very good, but Riggs should have died at the end. 4/4 Lethal Weapon 3 Not so very good. Does not have nearly as much emotional impact as the first two. Direction is a bit half-hearted. Cheesy at times. I don't feel Riggs' romance here. 2/4 Lethal Weapon 4 Entertaining enough. Some nice parts, but nothing to really go into at length. 2.5/4
