Just finished watching Under The Skin. This is a movie people will either love or hate and I would guess many will not make it past the first 30 minutes. I was teetering but found myself being drawn into it as the movie progressed. Not much in the way of dialogue but an almost eerie ambient soundtrack with very original and almost stunning visuals. I for one enjoyed the movie and the originality and would recommend giving it a watch for something off the beat and path.
Now I'm getting impatient for my copy to arrive

One more thing…Scarlett Johanson like you've never seen her before! I'll leave it at that.

broke down and rented Snowpiercer on Vudu since I had been given some VUDU credit... All I can say is that it's every bit as good as it's hyped to be

well written movie with some fresh takes on the dystopian future. It seems to be the new genre Hollywood is running with. If someone in that town had any sense they'd snatch the director/writer for a contract.I thought Chris Evans was great for such a dark roll, not use to seeing him play that part. Nice to see something different

Looking forward to watching it.

Just stay with it because at some point early on you're going to want to hit the eject button.

I liked Under The Skin too. This is not a typical Hollywood kind of movie at all. It doesn't look like it's a sci fi movie on the surface, which is interesting. It has a 70's sci fi vibe that kinda reminds me of Kubrick. With the slow pace (think 2001 A Space Odyssey, Europa Report, and Valhalla Rising) and the genuinely creepy, disturbing, and uncomfortable moments make it a love or hate it film. I really like the visual look along with the music during the seduction sequences.

So what did you think of my description of the movie JBRAX ??? Was I pretty much right on, except no one will really understand unless they watch it?

You were pretty much dead on as far as uniqueness and style but personally I enjoyed it after all was said and done. Did you watch the extras in particular casting of the film. The guy had a vision on what he wanted.
