I read the books and saw all the movies as well. I really like the Swedish films. I thought Fincher's film was okay but just something missing from it though. It didn't help that it was a basic...

Too flat and dry (straight forward) without all of his stylistic treatments. Social Network was good. TGWTDT was a bit dull.

I thought the mini-series Dune was pretty decent especially compared to that awfulness David Lynch did.

I haven't looked through this entire thread but the late Adrienne Shelly's first few movies, The Unbelievable Truth and Trust are worthwhile cult movies.

Plenty of better movies in the style you thought the movie was like the original Sleuth, No Country for Old Men (which was too nihlistic for me) or A Simple Plan. This was just an attempt to throw...

Do Snow Piercer and Runaway Train count?

Edit: Snow Piercer is mentioned in the article but Runaway Train is even better.

A bit surprised to hear how much you liked it. I really didn't like it much at all. Felt the "twists" were the machinations of a 14 year old's view of the legal system. Nothing was surprising to me...

As mentioned earlier, The Player has a 7+ minute opening tracking shot that introduces every major subplot and character as they pass by talking to each other that is also self-referential starting...

Amen. Man this show has no superego whatsosever. It goes for the jugular (figuratively and literally) and doesn't drag anything out. Man, oh, man.

Despite some posters' problems with the show, I still like it a lot and more than the Flash. Arrow has better fleshed out characters and is still (somewhat) grounded in what mortals can do as opposed...

I was wondering that myself about police just standing there and doing nothing. Also (to repeat) Flash is so fast that he can just unarm them before they know what happened. The show really has to...

This is a show I consistently enjoy. Good characters and basically no rules so very little predictability. It just goes everywhere and is a fun ride.

I liked it well enough to see the next ep. I always thought that Gilliam's movie was very good although I didn't see the original source. What I liked best was that there wasn't the usual tease...

I liked it as always. Turning up the bad gal quotient big-time. I really liked and was surprised at the new opening -- as one reviewer put it perfectly a mashup of Breaking Bad and Fight Club.

I thought they did this last year as well with the zombie bit. I did think the pacing of the show was back where it needs to be. Move it along. Move it along. Enough to make me want to see what's...

I think we pretty much agree. My problem is too many shows and which to stay with. This one just didn't make the cut.

I agree but the problem is more the writing, not the acting. Just a lot of introducing things and not going anywhere. Lots of sloppy writing such as Barbara saying how she can't be in the...
