    The Babadook. Horror fans should seek this one out. Best horror movie of the year.

    Watched Life after Beth last night and I enjoyed it, it was quirky and funny as advertised, but also had a cool disaster movie element that I wasn't expecting. I'm beginning to really appreciate Dan Dehaan, but I feel sorry for that kids hairline,

    Just watched The Imposter on Netflix. Very interesting documentary and done in a way that blends real interviews and footage with dramatizations. About a 13 yr old boy who went missing in Texas and shows up three years later in Spain.
    I thought someone else had said something about this movie but I searched and nothing came up.

    I saw The Conjuring yesterday. Wife had never seen the Exorcist until Halloween, her thoughts were that the Exorcist wasn't nearly as scary as The Conjuring.

    Now I gotta see Annabelle.

    Do you seriously mean that you think Titanic is better than both The French Connection and Easy Rider?

    The spectacle part of Titanic is very, very impressive. The framing device and the acting is not so impressive but it isn't as terrible as I remembered.

    Outside of the music and Jack Nicholson's performance I can't get behind Easy Rider at all. The stuff at the hippie commune is beyond pointless.

    The French Connection feels very dated to me. The language (multiple casual uses of the n-word), the action (the famous car chase scene is really just two cars driving under the subway in NY for a couple of blocks), everything. I watched The Apartment (1960) last night and it felt timeless. French Connection? Not so much.

    Don't really understand the hate for The French Connection. Friedkin's film bleeds tension, and that final shot remains as haunting as ever.

    meh, it's disjointed, meandering, and the dialogue is vague and nearly inaudible at points.

    On a different note, I just saw Nightcrawler and it was great. A+, a top 5 film of the year for me, if not the best. Gyllenhaal is magnetic in the lead role, and it's the best of his career. The pace of the film picks up fairly quickly and never really slows down. A lot of people are comparing it to Taxi Driver, and I agree with that comparison to a point, though I honestly think that Jake Gyllenhaal is more effective in his portraying a pure sociopath. DeNiro as Travis Bickle showed some shreds of humanity for the audience to sympathize with, where Gyllenhaal is an unrelenting void. I felt like I needed a shower after the film.

    So you've seen Nightcrawler, and don't agree that Gyllenhaal was "more effective in portraying a pure sociopath" than DeNiro from Taxi Driver? That's fine. My opinion is that there have probably been a few films where sociopathic tendencies were more accurately portrayed than in Taxi Driver. That doesn't take away from Taxi Driver being a great film, or from DeNiro's acclaim for his role in it.
