I finally got around to seeing Moonrise Kingdom. It's very easily my favorite film of 2012 so far. I place it grudgingly above The Cabin in the Woods. I say grudgingly not because it's a close call, but mainly because I enjoyed Cabin so much.
Think Cabin comes out in the next few on blu. Honestly, I am looking forward to testing the rewatchability of that flick. Sometimes when a movie has that big of a gotcha(Identity/Scream) it loses something once the cat's out. Really hoping that CITW retains its wonder.
Black Sunday is AWESOME!!
I don't know what it was about Subconscious but it scared the hell out of me. One of the better shaky-camera films I've seen.
Regarding the Skin I Live In: Diehard's version is the way I saw it, too. Watched the film over the weekend and also had the impression that she freaked out when Vicente didn't stop as soon as she wanted to stop. From Ledgard's perspective, I don't blame him for not believing Vicente... but damn.
Anyone seen Compliance yet?
(edit) never mind, i got off my 'internet ass' and read the thread. Thanks KQ and JD

Finally saw Goon and it was AWESOME! Hysterical. Up there with Slap Shot.
Also took the girls to see ParaNorman and it was okay at best. Expected more.
The subject matter is fascinating and I spent two hours after the film googling the real-life cast of characters (and even had a dream about it), but the film itself while chilling and gruesome enough was a snoozer. Tremendously bleak (which is fine) but PAINFULLY slow and one-paced, and for the first hour I had no idea who the **** all these people were. It also had subtitles that were poorly done and distracting. It's saving grace was the acting which was actually pretty good, and the lead who played John Bunting carried the film with a genuinely disturbing presence.
