The Grey was great.

Also really excited for Game of Thrones.

Rough week for Nicolas Winding Refn... Drive got shafted so bad by the Academy. On that note, I am excited to purchase it on Blu-Ray on Tuesday.

Spencer Control 01/29/12 01:06 PM

Really want to see The Grey.

claw38 01/29/12 01:15 PM

They really have some balls to re-release The Grey for Academy season...it doesn't look that great, so I'll be surprised if it gets anything.

New True Blood sneak peek is gonna drive me crazy til summer though.

Chuck series finale happened Friday.

Probably one of the best series finales I've ever seen. Love that show. Will miss.

Jamos4184 01/29/12 01:56 PM

I still can't believe Bore Horse got a Best Picture nomination.

A lot of the films at Sundance this year seem interesting. I don't know how it works, but do these films usually get theatrical releases after Sundance?

*CHUCK SPOILER ALERT*

Do you think the magical kiss worked?

I don't think it worked in the sense that she immediately remembered everything, but I think it worked in the sense that Chuck was trying to get her back. Everything about those last couple of scenes spelled out a happy ending. Also, with the little hints throughout the episode, it seems she will eventually recover everything, slowly but surely.

stoked for more sons of anarchy

Chrisj182 01/29/12 08:12 PM

It's all about the Game of Thrones trailer, wow.

CarouselBoy 01/29/12 10:23 PM

Aronofsky's take on Noah has me really interested. The article mentioned a biblical themed movie Steven Spielberg is doing. Any one know what that's about?
