    For those who would love to see Cronenberg return to the super-freaky-deeky Videodrome/Brood/The Fly type stuff - this one is for you! (Croney's son helms this one!).

    A clever stab at today's culture of celebrity-obsessed sheeple.
    A kick square in the balls to the TMZ-obsessed types.
    What TMZ fan wouldn't pay to be infected with Kim Kardashian's herpes or fry up a meatloaf made from Megan Fox' cellular regenerated DNA for dinner..

    It's disgusting, disturbing fun - and it's so nice to know we have more old school Cronenberg stuff coming our way over the next few years..

    Is Thirty Dark Zero any good?

    Yes. Just remember it is a movie and not an accurate film portrayal of actual events... Like Argo.

    Finally saw Silver Linings Playbook.

    Damn good movie. It's nice to see De Niro do something worth a damn... it's been a long, long time since he's been in anything worthwhile.

    Saw The Great Gatsby

    Good movie, pretty long but still good. Toby Maguire actually had a good performance.

    Idk if I want to see The Great Gatsby because it looks way too over the top. It's done by the same director of Romeo+Juliet and Moulin Rouge. Not looking promising.

    I feel like I'd be one of the few straight men in the theater.

    I'm a huge Leo fan... when it comes to his more recent movies, but still I have my doubts. It's also been years since I've read that book (probably 9th or 10th grade). I'd probably want to read it again before I see the movie.

    Sorry this story (Gatsby) is about a specific bygone era. Why the hell would you have freakin rap music as the score for the trailer?
    Yet another LCD aspect..
