Monsters

Anyone else watched this? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1470827/ It's billed as a sci-fi/horror type movie - just look at the poster - and I went in expecting that but got something completely different. Sort of like how LiT was branded as a comedy. It is set against a sci-fi backdrop (aliens on earth...

Welcome. Glad you found us (better late than never). It's a bit quiet around here lately but there's always room for more. I've also been extremely grateful for this venue to discuss the movie with others who feel as passionate.

I've been on a real kick lately, watching at least some of it most nights. It's been almost 10 years and I've probably watched it hundreds of times by now, but somehow it always seems to fit my mood. If I can't sleep and want to clear my head, or if I just want to relax with a drink and enjoy the sc...

The Bling Ring

Sofia's new movie The Bling Ring comes out in June:

Doesn't really seem like something I'd be interested in, but who knows.

I almost always watch it in the dark with headphones on and the volume somewhat high. The ambient noise and music are both great in this movie and I feel more immersed. And I agree that it's more of an emotional event - not a just a simple movie viewing. I usually have to be in that state of tired r...

George Clooney and Natalie Portman? Prior to Up in the Air I would never have considered Clooney, but that was actually a similar role which I rather liked. I now think he could have fit into the role of Bob very well. Charlotte is harder for me...I can't really think of another actress who can do ...

They've expanded it even further - check it out if it wasn't already playing in your city: http://www.focusfeatures.com/somewhere/theatres The theater was quite full when I saw it, maybe 100 people. I saw it with my fiancee who said of the opening scenes, "They wore on so long I couldn't stand it, b...

There's now a bit wider release with new theaters listed on the official site. I saw it this afternoon. Honestly I wasn't impressed. I get where she was going with the film but it missed the mark in my opinion. On the other hand it wasn't until my second viewing of LIT, alone and at home, that it re...

I just now realized this is only a limited release in the US, and not in my city.

Has anyone heard any information about a wider release? The official website doesn't mention anything.

I've played it twice now and there's no visible scratching, even on the small print and pictures on side B. My turntable is low quality and very old, but it does have a newer needle.

I imagine that with repeated playings it would begin to show damage just like any record.

I also ordered from this seller and mine came today so thank you for pointing it out. I'm probably ruining it right now by actually listening to it on my ancient turntable but I couldn't resist.

While Charlotte was clearly angry I think Ebert's use of "startled" is a good one, and I think I know where he is coming from. Bob and Charlotte's relationship wasn't about sex. Yet Bob's infidelity came out of nowhere. I remember thinking when I first saw the movie how sudden and unexpected it was....

Fantastic photos. Thanks so much for sharing them. It's awesome to see the locations from the movie in a different way, as well as some new ones.
