Ji-woon Kim is the reason I'll be seeing it, even if the only reason is so I can say "Well, it wasn't my fault he didn't make it in Hollywood - I paid to see his only American release!"


2013 seems to be the year when all the great Korean filmmakers try their hand at English-language features.

Ji-woon Kim with The Last Stand.

Chan-wook Park with Stoker.

Joon-ho Bong with Snowpiercer.

Of the three, Snowpiercer sounds the most interesting to me.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706620/

It will be interesting to see how all these films are received here.

Can I please get some more people to take part in the game I posted under the General Movie Discussion forums board? It's called This Rotten Month: Predicting January 2013's Major Releases. You can submit guesses anytime between now and Sunday. Please?
:D

I read on a recent Gold Derby thread that some believe Ryan Gosling may get an Oscar nomination for Gangster Squad. Too early to guess for next year, but I doubt it. Then again, 2013's Oscar contenders look kind of weak. Is it me, or does his voice in the movie trailers sound hilarious? I still haven't gotten over how Gosling spoke about two words in Drive, 2011's second best movie.

Gangster Squad would make a great video game, perhaps something from Rockstar, but as a movie, it looks like a really bad version of Grand Theft Auto set in the 1940s.

You mean like the "Mafia" series?

Certainly.

Mama looks absolutely horrible, i'll be staying FAR away from that one, Texas Chainsaw Massacre looks like OK, but i'll wait until DVD to see that one.

I'm a fan of Allen Hughes, and it's cool to Wahlberg and Crowe teaming up, so I think Broken City could be a very interesting thriller.


Just out of curiosity, why do you prefer Texas Chainsaw 3D to Mama? Neither looks particularly great, but at least Mama seems like a mildly-interesting psychological thriller. Texas Chainsaw 3D just seems like another joyless gore-fest of a sequel.

Well I find gore-fest sequels to be very joyFUL myself, so it's mostly a personal preference.(Jason X is one of my favorite horror films admittedly) if nothing else, i'm sure TCM will make for a decent watch at home.

Psychological thrillers don't usuallly do a whole lot for me though, i've sat through far too many shitty ones like "The Return" "Godsend" "Hide And Seek" and "Possession" and I don't expect Mama to be any better then those films, so I will not be wasting my time or money on it. At least I can expect TCM to deliever on the entertainment front, but films like Mama can go wrong in so many ways, usually with lame, predictable jump scares and asinine nonsensical Shyamalan-esque twist endings.

They all look horrible, but I personally prefer psychological thrillers. I enjoy all genres, but I have in no shame in admitting that horror films are my least favorite.

Chastain looks ridiculous in the movie, however. No denying that.
