Pretty shameful that I haven't seen the last three Cronenberg movies yet.
Like, I own Eastern Promises, what's my inability to pop that in?

It's fine, but weirdly flat. Like you're just kind of watching it, then eventually it's over.

Pretty much.

Some really gorgeous shots though, if you go for that kinda thing.

oh yeah he kills it.

if you have an ongoing joke about Keira Knightley's underbite then there are good laughs to be had too.

it's fun, worth watching.

kind of reminded me of dead ringers but more subdued. fassbender is good, keira knightley's accent is really horrible/distracting
Do you think anyone but the most pretentious aristocrats could have felt that way before we trapped music in vinyl? I doubt it.

well, a response like this just indicates your ignorance of the subject and that you missed the point entirely.

this sort of glib, unthoughtful dismissal ("huh huh huh yeah like we should stop using money guys lol") is embarrassing to witness, like john stewart's glib, unthoughtful dismissal of the trillion dollar coin.
