Sorry for the (semi) long update. I was nowhere near a computer last weekend.

adamat3 09/30/12 03:15 PM

I thought Jim Carey backed out of the new Dumb and Dumber.

DecemberFaded 09/30/12 03:45 PM

Saw Looper last night. Really, really well done. Anyone wondering if they should see it should definitely go see it. Don't read reviews/watch trailers--just go check it out!

Thought I'd let y'all know.

stonecoldfox 09/30/12 03:47 PM

I'm really excited to see Wreck it Ralph!

If you read the article it brings up that point.

It gives us a little hope that he still might be apart of it.
That's exciting.

Jim Carrey or not... I'm pretty sure it's gonna be awful. Farrely Brothers should have retired a decade ago.

Wreck-It Ralph posters look nice. I'm excited for The Great Gatsby.
I haven't seen The Amazing Spider-Man but from what I heard it wasn't too different from the 2002 one. Hopefully the sequel doesn't follow the same path.
On a side note, I didn't know Marc Webb directed videos for Brand New, Green Day, The Used, Jimmy Eat World and a bunch of others.

Excited about this Damon, Affleck collaboration.

Oof. Reeeally iffy on modern-day Hamlet. Seeing as the Ethan Hawke attempt was not something I ever want to watch again.

Dude, yeah! It looks amazing.

YES to the Strain series. I have been waiting and waiting for it.

They can only do it justice! If you haven't read the books I definitely suggest them. Can't wait for the show, much better than doing it as movies.
