Cinco did you know/heard about this??? http://www.independe...e-a8084356.html

Yes I did know and Plummer got nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance. I was trying to avoid the obvious joke/comment. Apologies if it missed the target.

I originally didn't have much interest in seeing All The Money In The World but replacing Spacey this quickly made me very interested. It's such a scorched earth policy on Spacey that I feel I need to support it

So was I... And I thought you didn't know what had happened with the whole Spacey replacement. Apologies for misunderstanding.

Enough .gif torture...

My 2nd pick is...


Spoiler



Oh wow ... I never saw this when it was in theaters last summer (I don't know ... "life" or whatever) despite always loving Edgar Wright, so this will correct a grievous omission in my summer movie-going. Gotta say, though ... I had no idea it was a musical.

I have nothing productive to add, except I would like to nominate this as the best gif on the interwebs.

We've always maintained a pretty loose definition of the word "Musical." Like, is The Doors a Musical? What about Walk Hard? I think this is an interesting pick because - while the characters might not break out in to song - music is integral to the storytelling. At least, that's what I've heard. I haven't seen it yet either.

No, it's not your typical musical, but the music plays a big part in the storytelling. At least in the first half. I won't go into any spoilers, but there's some wonderful "choreography" in the beginning. /wink

Seconded. That's a big part of what endeared me to the movie.

This is making it so hard to not jump the gun and already talk about the movie but that beginning was fuckin fantastic.

I apologize. I didn't know the opening song's title. Yes, "Bellbottoms" especially.

I'm excited to watch this again (I saw it in theatres) but also, just to warn you all, I have a massive crush on Jon Hamm so I feel like that'll mostly be what I'm talking about.

Though I will tell you when I saw this with my dad, his review was 'that was very silly but Jamie Foxx was good'.

I saw in theaters as well because I like Edgar Wright's movies, and also both Jon Hamm and Jon Bernthal :)
My boyfriend does love both Jons as well (he has a big man crush on Bernthal, lol).

But Bernthal wasn't in the movie very long.. I do wish his character stuck around longer (or maybe his character stayed instead of Foxx's character) but I'll get into it more next week :D
