I loved how there was no hesitation, he just shot people and the double tap to the heads were awesome. I also really like the whole coin thing, and getting a dinner reservation.

@@Synyster The world-building in the film is really cool and makes you want to revisit the world of hitmen and assassins, especially The Continental.

Taking away the few lame fight scenes and below average acting, this movie could have great instead of just meh.

 

Makes me want to have a small hidden room with a box full of school things like guns and coins n shit.

 

Now I want to get some fancy coins for my close friends that we'll do nothing with, ha.

Few lame fight scenes?! *gasp* I think the one at the very end was unnecessary but it has some of the best framed action scenes in recent American cinema. You can understand where everyone is at, the cohesion, very little cuts.

 

Keanu knows...gun-fu. He deserves a resurgence, his life is mired with tragedy. :(

Re-watch the film, a lot of the up close fist fights were way too choreographed and not realistic. Other wise, a lot of the fight scenes were great, they were using actual BJJ which was awesome to see and I'd say almost all of the gun scenes were on point.

Wild screener is available.

 

@@Synyster I respectfully disagree, but yeah I thoroughly enjoyed the gunplay. Also appreciated that they had a lot of "Hey it's that guy!" actors in the film in minor roles. I'm expecting a sequel with Nicolas Cage as the main villain.

Finally!!! Thank you.

 

Speaking of realistic gunplay > gun-fu? I HIGHLY disagree. A movie with Keanu needs gun fu.

Maybe I just wasn't in the mood but I thought Nightcrawler and Foxcatcher were just ok. Didn't really pull me in, even though I liked all the actors involved.

Just watched Nightcrawler. I liked it but I thought there was going to be some crazy twist at the end.

Gyllenhaal not even nominated for best actor? I also think that Gone Girl or Nightcrawler could have gone over American Sniper for best picture.

 

Hoping that Birdman and Whiplash sweep the show.

That's what I'm saying! Gyllenhaal was fantastic in Nightcrawler. 

 

 

LOL at American Sniper being in there so many times, someone's getting paid off.

What do you think of the state of movies today? Do you feel like the complaints about American filmmaking being nothing but superhero movies. . .

Ah, that's such a fucking crock of shit. I can't remember a year in recent memory where there were less complaints about the quality of movies. And what's wrong with superhero movies, you know? I don't know. You're talking to someone that enjoys watching those films. People need to get a life if they're having that discussion [laughs]. Those movies get a bad rap.

 

@@Synyster not really a twist when it comes to that character's progression for wanting the best footage worth shooting. He was a sociopath from the start.

Nightcrawler

 

 

 

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I did not see the way he killed his partner with last major crash scene coming, at all. That to me was the huge twist in the end.

That really wasn't that big of a twist. It just amplified him being a huge sociopath. You also could see it coming from a mile away.

He lied to his partner about the suspect being dead after the car flipped over and then the suspect shot him. Not a twist *IMO) after the partner tried to blackmail him prior to the car chase for knowing that Gyllenhaal lied to the police; he also demanded a better raise.

I didn't see it coming, so, I saw it as a twist. I had an idea things would get worse for his partner after the money altercation but I didn't see it coming the way he did die. I mean, the guy still being alive, basically baiting him into the shot and then getting the whole thing on film, like what?

 

Talking about now though doesn't seem so surprising after you take into account everything else he'd done before that.

I didn't see him doing that either, but I could clearly see he was getting fed up with the guy. That quote "Its not that I don't understand people, I just don't like them" did it for me. Sure it was surprising, but its not like it was this major plot twist. That's all I'm saying

As long as Whiplash wins and American Snipers gets 1 Oscar (anything but BP) at most I'll be happy.
