I know, Bond earlier in UK than everywhere else, but come on, where is your Back to the Future homage article?

I thought you love films, those classics especially <sadface>.

Unsung Heroes #1: the midwife from Willow
Lesson is: had it been difficult - it would have taken 12 years for him to guess. Or 1 Linklater.

The 7 saddest details on the IMDb page for John Travolta's new movie
I just found 'I'm a Gummy Bear' song on Youtube.
It has over 500 fucking million views. OH, HUMANITY, WHY??

A part of me just died now.

JK goes mental and yeah, when he starts, there is no going back.

I saw the movie the other day and must admit - JK is my new hero, making verbal abuse a real art.

OMG, when I thought Limitless is bad....

Seriously, Limitless is Citizen Kane in comparison to Lucy - a film so dull and full of bullshit that when power went down somewhere around 1h of its running time - I just said 'Thanks Heavens, it must be a sign'.
So yeah - a rare case of film I could not even watch till the end. Not that I wanted or will want.
I don't mind stupid movies, I just cannot stand a dumb movie that pretends it is actually clever.

A sidenote - never saw Citizen Kane - but heard it is some kind of a masterpiece.

We're running out of Batman titles
When one starts to think the world went crazy, you just need to get here to read your article Ali, and everything gets back to normal.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past
Just seen it. Awesome stuff.

Singer nailed it like in old days.
Also, he basically rebooted the franchise, which is cool cause it allows for completely new shit to happen. Unless Bryan is put in jail for his wrongdoings, hopefully allegations will turn out to be made up.

Watched it the other night. Expected it to be worse than it actually was. Kinda watchable. Liked special effects, most of them were pretty good. Maybe some shaky cam could be removed. The biggest problem for me was the fact that the film didn't know what is its main theme - dumb action or philosophical issues of what means to be a human, existential questions, etc. Too much of a mix for my liking, it should stick to either of those, otherwise I'm confused as to what I am supposed to feel while watching. Or maybe I stick too much to internal directives.

Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014)
Great actor, indeed. One of those from the First League Forever.

Thanks for this article Ali.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Even after reading this 5 star review I cannot find anything 'classic' in the movie. Nothing new that has been already shown. Shouting Leo - check, fat Hill behaving like he's retarded - check, drug abuse - check, nudity - check.
A story told from Jordan's perspective (based on his own book) doesn't give a crap about people he tricked, and now we are tricked into buying tickets to see his 'career' proving that being a prick getting wealthy does really pay off. A few years in a prison and you can even write a book and then get some more money. And now it's getting Oscars as well.

PS. The funniest moment:
During plane flight, it turns out that our lovable criminals having no issues with cheating, drug abusing, screwing all that breathes and has vagina - they in fact are afraid of only one thing - saying out loud a word 'nigger'.
