    Looking forward to a couple movies with DiCaprio this year- The Great Gatsby and also The Wolf of Wall Street. The second one is directed by Scorsese, who I absolutely love. The man is a true genius and a master of his craft

    I've recently watched Perks of Being a Wallflower (decent but kinda meh), Take This Waltz (holy balls, Sarah Polley has some directing chops), and Everything Is Illuminated (same goes for Shreiber).

    I still need to watch The Master... PT Anderson is probably my favorite director right now. I also need to see Zero Dark Thirty to see how it matches up with Point Break after the disappointment that was The Hurt Locker.

    Also going to watch The Hobbit again to see if it pisses me off as much the second time around.

    Also Dave I'd like to hear your take on Spring Breakers, assuming you were being serious when you listed it here

    Oh I was being serious, I really dug the movie. Visually it was simply amazing and James Franco was downright awesome in the role...plus really, really funny. It def had a Natural Born Killers vibe and the girls who were the "leads" did a fantastic job, the social satire was spot on, and plus it had all sorts of sex, drugs, violence and rock and roll (well I guess it was Skrillex) throughout, overall an extremely fun movie that had a ton of underlying themes.

    Keep in mind this is the same director that wrote Kids and Trash Humpers, I think a lot of people went into it thinking it was the next Super Bad or Project X, those people would be very dissapointed. Also if people are sensitive to watching 19 year olds doing drugs off one another while getting it on, I would probably say they should avoid it as well.

    If you can possibly watch it at one of those movies that serves booze or food, see it there.

    I was intrigued by the movie for the simple reason that it'd be interesting to see the Disney girls involved in a more "adult" role.
