I'm hopefully seeing that this Friday, or some time this week! Heard nothing but great things about that movie yet.

Someone I know saw it and was freaking out for ages not only because McConaughey is their favorite actor and he was apparently really, really exceptional in it, but because it was a great experience overall. I heard the same of Gravity, and agree after seeing it in 3D while in theatres. I'm guessing explorations/crises in space are back in style... Armageddon 2, anyone?

I heard it's a rip-off of a anime. McConaughey is likely not a good actor anyway since he seems to be in heaps of romcom crap.

a) what anime
b) I can almost assure you it's not
c) I wouldn't base your opinion on an actor on the quality of the movies they've been on. plus, from the way you phrased that it didn't sound like you'd seen him in anything so who are you to judge m8.

a)Gunbuster
c) Yeah I haven't. I take it he was just typecast in a lot of bad movies.

up until about two years ago I'd have agreed with you, but with him having prominent roles in stuff like True Detective, Wolf of Wall Street, Dallas Buyers Club, Mud, this, etc I think that his "legitimacy" (which in itself is a bogus measurement) as an actor is on the rise.

His only good 1990 - 2010 role seems to be Dazed and Confused. I seen wolf of wall street but I don't remember who he plays. I think I also saw a bit of EDtv years ago.

he plays the guy in the beginning who gets DiCaprio into the business, he does the weird thing with his chest at the restaurant and a lot of other stuff. he's only in the first 30 minutes but if I remember correctly he got an Oscar nomination for it. still need to give Dazed and Confused a watch.

Ahh. His acting in dazed is likely not that good but the film likely doesn't need that.

eh contact is a pretty good movie
probably his last significant role (that i can remember) before the onslaught of rom-coms

SOOOO... has anyone been keeping up with American Horror Story? Last week was the best episode so far just because something actually happened. It's rare for me to have grown bored of AHS mid-season, but I think it's picking up again. If this week's episode is as groundbreaking and moves as fast as the past two weeks, it has nothing to worry about. I was worried for my retention, but it's getting GOOOD.

Spoiler:
DANDY KILLING HIS MOM WAS ****ED UP. That boy is my favorite AHS character ever right now, but he really has some screwball intentions. I can't wait to see him go on a killing spree, but I know it'll lead to his inevitable death so that depresses me. Maybe we can see him shirtless again... Anyway, I didn't expect Frances Conroy to die so soon but I think it had to happen. I think that was the last functioning cog in Dandy's head and now that it's gone, he's going to go absolutely BAT****.

so we're gonna experiment

since the DCC is active once every month or two, I'm going to close it. if you find something, even a very minor something, you want to discuss, just make a thread. if this method of discussion doesn't work, I'll reopen this as the catch all, but I think it'll be fine.

let's go
