His dialogue is too fast for me. I don't think I'm watching a conversation, I think I'm watching something Sorkin wrote because there's not enough space between one character finishing talking and the next starting to talk. Like it would be impossible for the second character to process and respond in the amount of time given.

Gilmore girls actually has very similar dialogue. And I enjoyed social network.

All of the Cuties stuff I have seen doesn't look any worse than the outfits little girls in dance and twirling teams wear to every fall festival in every small town in America every year. It's disturbing and always has been, but the outrage about the movie is over the top and ridiculous.

i started watching I'm Thinking of Ending Things and got about 40 minutes into the first scene and had to turn it off. the first scene was still going with no end in sight.

It isn't. There is one scene towards the end of the movie where these girls are inappropriately twerking and it's over the top, but it's supposed to be, that's the point. The people watching these girls twerk in this dance contest are visibly disgusted.

I think the people who say this glorifies children and sex are just telling on themselves.

Finally watching Alpha Dog (Netflix). Lots of late 90s/early 00s nostalgia. Never thought I’d be rooting for a Jewish fake nazi to whoop some ass.

Edit: enjoying immensely

Edit 2: eff what a dark turn. Not enjoying

Edit 3: what a buzzkill, and was the Sharon Stone fatsuit really necessary?

Edit 4: what a terrible story. Decently made movie, but why in the world make a movie about such a crap incident. Woof.

No raccoons

Followed this gem up by finally finishing Nightcrawler a few days later. WTF am I doing to myself.

What is the point of making movies that make people feel shitty when they are over?
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

I'd lump Kevin Smith, at least early stuff, had a similar dialogue.  It takes me a minute to suspend disbelief and accept the unrealistic dialogue but I generally enjoy those shows.

I saw Tenet and holy eff did I need subtitles. My head was already spinning because of how crazy the concept is, and then trying to follow the storyline on top of this crazy world Nolan built was overwhelming. Will watch again because of how much is revealed towards the middle and end of the movie, but hot damn. Still fun as eff just for the visuals and concept.

Theater in Manhattan. Including me and homeboy I saw it with, there were 10 people in the IMAX theater. Was gonna leave if it was full but obviously that wasn't the case.

Have any of you watched Uncut Gems a second time or have the urge to? If so how was the second viewing? After watching it the first time I said I'd never watch it again but hearing Blinding Lights five times a day, every day is making me reconsider watching this again.

I've put it on in the background while doing something a couple of times. It's still very intense. The ending scene still gets me.

i have no urge.  kind of like clockwork orange -- i get what they were going for, and i'm glad i watched the movie, and I think it's a good movie, but i have no desire to put myself through that again.

Is there a movie scene that automatically puts a lump in your throat? I don’t get emotional with movies, with one exception & it’s ridiculous. The only scene that does it to me is in what’s basically a Nintendo commercial.

Tonight I watched clips of The Wizard. At the end, when they’re in the dinosaur kills me every time. When Beau Bridges realizes what Jimmy’s doing, starts to tear up, and tells Jimmy “Come on” & hugs him it’s an instant lump in the throat for me.
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

I cry a lot, so there's plenty. But there's a scene in Smashed that gets me every....rough ridin'....time.
Not just lump in my throat, but full on bawling.

There's another (new) movie that I've seen over 10 times now and I still cry like a baby during a couple (A COUPLE!) scenes. I don't want to reveal it because it isn't marketed as a cryworthy movie, and I think that's what's powerful about it. But if anyone doesn't care about spoilers and/or wants to watch a cryworthy movie, message me and I'll let you know. I'm just a huge fan of walking into movies without knowing what to expect. As in, I don't even watch trailers if I can help it.

Oh don't get me started on cartoons. Zootopia, Wreck It Ralph, and basically every Pixar movie make me audibly cry.
