Mine too, Reggie.

The only thing that gives me pause is actually Johnny Depp. Don't get me wrong, I love Depp but he's almost too big a star for me to completely shed my suspension of disbelief. I kept thinking "Jack Sparrow is The Lawnmower Man?"

I don't which excites me more: pimped out 70s Christain Bale and Bradley Cooper or sexed up 70s Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams.

Also, when did David O. Russell become one of my favorite directors?


Date night yesterday. The Missus and I got American Hustle into us and all I can say is go see it. It's just solid storytelling, pure and simple. I laid awake last night trying to figure out if it was following the stupid "Save the Cat" structure, but in the end decided I didn't care. The movie is tense and edgy without ever losing a sense of humor and heart. The trailer tells you all you need to know about the story and I'm not going to ruin anything by going into details.

Christian Bale disappears in this role. Missus RC grabbed my hand twenty minutes in and said,"Holy shit! That's Christian Bale! I thought it was Tom Cruise." Bradley Cooper is sort of turning into that guy that only does one thing, but he does it really well and it works perfect here. Louis C.K. shows up a supporting role that's hilarious. (There's another awesome cameo too.) Jeremy Renner is great.

Go for Jennifer Lawrence, but stay for Amy Adams. She's amazing on every level. Lawrence almost (but not quite) reduxes her brilliant Silver Linings Playbook role here. Make no mistake. She's still awesome, but you get a sense she needs to step away from Russel for a while. Adams meanwhile, also seems to disappear into her role which is really layered and requires her to play three(!) versions of the same character. Trust me that it all makes sense.

This movie is going to ruin me for other movies for awhile. That's how good it is.

If that's your litmus, you may be disappointed. That said, it's a very sexy movie.

Litmus... is that a new euphemism for the kids?

Yes. There are only five people in my family. Retard aunt, retard cousin, crazy gfather, writer uncle, NM cousin. You may have noticed that 90% of Greatsociety is devoted to the insane antics of three of those five for over 12 years.

So...Kickstarter brought Veronica Mars back from the dead, raising two million in a day. Geekdom is abuzz with how this is the new way to revive a series...though Whedon has already said he won't even think about touching Firefly again for another two years.

Either way...fans crowd-sourcing the revival of a show, and producing some sort of mandate, is interesting, yes? I think Veronica Mars is operating under a deal where if they raise X then Warner or whoever will respond and handle distro/marketing. So, essentially, you all make the movie/show and we'll pick it up.

This feels more exciting than the pipe dream (and ultimate sad failure) of the Netflix 2.0 revolution...

Oscar round-up:

Frozen was quite good. I actually enjoyed the updated themes (as Reggie called them a few ages back) and was surprised at how adult it skewed...

Lone Survivor is jingoistic bullshit and totally absurd... But it's also very well done and super intense. Kept me glued to my seat.

Her is idiotic Apple porn.

American Hustle is annoying as I look back on it, but it should get the sideboob Oscar. Is it a good movie? No. But I'll watch it again and again for Lawrence and Adams!

Gravity -- clearly written by a child.

12 Years a Slave: Downloading and pending...

Captain Phillips is embarrassing and terrible. I know it's based on a true story about a guy who willingly captained a ship into the pirate zone and got off scot free, but it actually steals more from the Scandinavian "A Hijacking" which is a tense and amazing movie.

The Wolf of Wall Street: Downloaded and pending...

I'm ignoring Nebraska, the Cumberbatch Collection, and that movie about the AIDs cowboy.

What others am I missing...?
