Its a long long time that I found that so many very good movies were shown in theaters at the same time as right now is the case.

I have seen Django unchained yesterday - a fantastic film, and the best Tarantino has created, only rivalled by "pulp Fiction". Christoph Waltz is awesome as Dr. Schulz, better even than his Oscar-winning Nazi officer a few years ago. Di Caprio also fantastic as the evil plantation owner. Some historical inaccuracies are in the movie, but I rarely did care less for it than here.
Saw "Cloud Atlas" last week, also worth seeing.
Next week it´ll be "Lincoln".
Have still to see "Life of Pi", "Les Miserables", "Flight", "Beasts of the Southern Wild", "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty".

Zero dark Thirty I saw the other day and thought it was ok, quite brutal in parts and probably could've been condensed into a 2 hr film rather than nearly 3 hrs.

Django, just fantastic! DiCaprio was sensational as was Foxx, Waltz and Washington. It's certainly one I cannot wait to put into the DVD collection.

Looking forward to seeing, I give it a year, The Impossible, Lincoln, and possibly Flight.

Django was great, but I found Cloud Atlas to be a snore fest. I know I was not the only one to think so. My collegue who joined me thought the same. Also, when the movie was over someone shouted "wake up everyone, it's over".

I saw it yesterday and enjoyed it immensely; it was a bit on the long side, admittedly, but I certainly enjoyed it. It builds very well to its conclusion. (Spoiler alert: they get him).

Lincoln: an absolute masterpiece; DDL is superb as Abe. Coincidentally, I'm actually reading Doris Goodwins's "Team of Rivals", on which the film is based; it helps to read this and know some of the personalities involvved. I enjoyed it thoroughly; DDL is a shoe-in for the Oscar.

Les Mis: was looking fwd to this for over a year and was not disappointed; brilliant performances all around and a worthy tribute to this superb musical.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Hitchcock movie. As for others ... Django was certainly a most enjoyable movie, with superb performances all around; Waltz, Foxx and DiCaprio were very good, but for me, Samuel L. Jackson was one of the best.; he's that class of actor that can steal a movie with even a relatively small role.

I enjoyed Life of Pi; it was thought provoking visually superb ... though unlike some of the longer movies, I did find myself looking at my watch at certain times. Still, a very good and enjoyable movie.

Argo - sadly missed this in my local cinema, but will certainly get it out on DVD when it comes (if we have anywhere left to rent or buy DVDs at the rate things are going - with Blockbuster and HMV on the way out!!)

So, certainly a bumper crop of movies to get us through those horrid, cold winter months!

I thought it was ok, but no more than that really. It was definitely not living up to the hype, particularly the trailer on TV the other day claiming it was a 'masterpiece'. There was really nothing too original about the film, other than it being about Bin Laden.

Django Unchained was good, very good even, but I don't rate it higher than Pulp Fiction.

I thought Flight was also pretty good, for what it was.

It is. Like all Tarantino films however, it's all style and no real substance... Not that that's a bad thing, but it's not very deep. Brilliant entertainment and a great 2 hrs 30.

Lincoln

Fantastic film... best Spielberg in years.

Quoting na (Thread starter):
Life of Pi

A nice film, well done, and with lots of heart. A little preachy but the message isn't too in-your-face.

I loved it too, but it was pretty simple story, though very well told. No twists or turns or any great surprises, which, I suppose was a surprise in itself. Martin McDonagh's films and plays are similar to Tarantino's (convoluted plots and rich in dialogue) so if you want a similar treat check out Seven Psychopaths.

Life of Pi was okay, though visually superb. Les Miz was a treat from start to finish, and I also loved Argo, so we have similar tastes!
