    Dazed and Confused

    EdTV

    A Time To Kill

    Frailty - (an underrated movie)

    Amistad

    Two for the Money

    The Lincoln Lawyer

    Tropic Thunder

    BQ: Turning out to be a hell of a cast. Now we need De Niro to sign on.

    BQ2: I don't see an Oscar in his future. But I like his style. Really excited about Mud.

    BQ3:

    - 21 Jump Street 7/10 - It made me laugh. But the shoot out at the end, in the hotel room, lasted forever.

    - The Artist 8/10 - Great Movie.

    - Baghead 8/10 - Great Indie Film. A must see.

    BQ4: Next 3 Movies: (Picked These Up Today)

    - The Flowers of War

    - The Hunter

    - Machine Gun Preacher

    BQ5: Deadwood and The Wire. (In that order)

    BQ: That is Bad A*s trailer. I wanted more New York Mickey. And Scoot McNairy looks like he might pick up an award nomination. It moved up a couple of spots on my "Most Anticipated 2012".

    BQ7:

    - Possibly Jeff Nichols Next Project. http://www.deadline.com/2012/07/chernin-entertainm... . Here is the article from Popular Science. http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-02/boy-...

    Hey Donny!

    I'm not really a big Matthew McConaughey fan, but I love Dazed and Confused and Tropic Thunder.

    BQ: I don't know why but I've got a feeling that he's going to be really good in it. Like a Jonah Hill / Money Ball type deal.

    BQ2: It's kind of hard to say, he's in a lot of chick-flick's, which aren't exactly the types of films that want to showcase his acting ability. But from his serious roles he seems like a fairly decent actor. However I haven't seen The Lincoln Lawyer, which was apparently his best performance

    BQ3:

    Naked, Paris Je'Taime, The Dark Knight Rises

    BQ4:

    Deliverance, Contempt, 13 Assassins

    BQ5: Naked

    BQ6: It looks awesome, I'm really excited for this movie. I really liked The Assassination of Jesse James, and I absolutely loved Chopper!

    BQ7: Not at the moment

    The Lincoln Lawyer was pretty great, it's fairly underrated in terms of 2011 films. Of course Dazed is Confused is probably my favorite, and his role as the Texas Scout in Eastbound and Down was fun.

    Aside from that, I've never really been a fan. Most of his notable films are from this year, or are upcoming. Plus, I can't wait for True Detectives with Woody Harrelson.

    BQ: It's a cool addition. He's pretty perfect for this kind of film. Really though, it's just another solid addition to a really diverse and talented cast.

    BQ2: I don't have much of an opinion, but I love the career choices he's taking lately.

    BQ3: The Kid With A Bike, The Future, Cropsey. I also watched Drew Peterson: Untouchable recently. A bit silly and the tone was typical of a dramatic lifetime movie, but I enjoyed it enough. Mostly for Catherine Dent.

    BQ4: American Gun (Forest Whitaker), Dancer in the Dark, and The New World.

    BQ5: I'm in the middle of four shows: The Larry Sanders Show, Arrested Development, Justified, and The Chicago Code. All of them are amazing, but you've seen/are watching them all. You should probably just watch The Wire though. I haven't seen it, but I'm sure you won't regret it.

    BQ6: I'll get back to you, not really in a position to watch it right now.

    BQ7: Drew Barrymore finally decided to choose a new film to direct. It seems way too ambitious a project for her, but Whip It is one of my favorite films and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

    EDIT: I watched 'Bernie' a few days ago. His performance was overshadowed by Jack Black's, but he was great in the film.

    I have seen him in Failure to Launch and Tropic Thunder and Contact, and Lincoln Lawyer., none of them are my favorite movies, but he did make me laugh in Failure to launch. About him joining The Wolf of Wall Street, I am pretty sure Scorsese knows what he is doing. I am sure I will get thumbs down here, but I am not a fan of his. I probably need to give him a chance, so I will re watch movies of his.

    BQ3 I saw Fun House the other night it was stupid

    Cat Woman which I have never seen , with Halle Berry not bad, but I like Michelle much better

    last night I watched Escape from LA really not very good. Those are the most recent movies I have seen.

    BQ4 The Dark Knight Rises if I ever can get some time to myself, which is hard to do as of lately.

    I plan on watching Deliverance tonight it is on tv

    and Saturday is my birthday and I am watching Goodfellas

    BQ5 For you not really, you pretty much know what you want to watch. I doubt if I have movies in mind that you have not seen. I do like Dexter, have you seen that?

    BQ6. Looks interesting. I think I saw that trailer on another question today, but not sure.

    BQ7 Well only that Johnny Depp is taking a break and I was looking forward to The Thin Man remake. I bet it would be good. He was not going to play Nick Charles . He was going to play a detective. Interesting. They were going to have him be married and even have a dog, Kinda like Astre. Oh well.
