I can't imagine seeing a movie more.

Hoffman is greatness, every time. Dude's won a Best Actor Oscar, shouldn't he have had higher billing than Phoenix?

High hopes for this.

People say this movie is career suicide for Anderson, but if Trey Parker and Matt Stone are still working after that Scientology episode of South Park, which even mentioned Xenu by name, I don't think he's in too much danger.

As it's been the case with Paul Thomas Anderson's other works, I am soooooooo looking forward to this.

This will be a film experience and a HALF.
 
2012-07-20 09:29:31 PM
I am going to see the f*cking sh*t out of this movie.

You know, unlike some of the other directors who made their name around the same time he did (I'm looking at you, Wes Anderson, and you too, Kevin Smith), Paul Thomas Anderson's really broken out of the directorial habits he was developing early on, and has been doing some daring, really creative new stuff. He's on track to being one of the truly great directors of all time.

/still don't like Punch-Drunk Love though
//didn't see what was so groundbreaking about Adam Sandler playing a nerd with anger issues

Indeed. He continues to impress and innovate.

Hell, I thought he had the Best Picture/Director Oscars locked up until No Country for Old Men nabbed up all the buzz.

The Wild Palms miniseries already did this in 1993.

I'd be more worried about the Hollywood suicide angle if I were him. The kid with the funny hair from that 70s show ain't gonna like this one bit.
 
2012-07-21 12:48:29 AM
Finally a movie named after the villian! I wonder if he is going to get a companion. Or is that just a Doctor thing.

THIS

After seeing that trailer, I don't care what's about -- it just looks like a good movie.
 
2012-07-21 01:09:58 AM
Oh is this the movie about M. Don Gubbard?
 
2012-07-21 01:45:39 AM
And the Church of Scientology is totally not going to still try and bring a ridiculous lawsuit *wink*

Boogie Nights - great
Magnolia - great
Punch Drunk Love - good
There Will Be Blood - meh

He's going downhill with each film, so I'm not expecting much from this.

There Will Be Blood

I think it's a distinct possibility.

If the movie is half as good as this trailer, give it all the awards.

That said, Magnolia was still terrible.

You need to seriously recalibrate your "Terrible Meter". I'm not saying that it's the greatest thing ever, but terrible it is not.

I'd be surprised if Scientology doesn't implode within the next 10 years. Five years, even. That little wacko leader (not Cruise, the other guy) has higher-ups defecting on him left and right. Oh, and his wife hasn't been seen since 2006. And their actual membership is estimated to be at most 40,000 people, not millions or tens of millions like they claim. Whole house of cards is going to come crashing down sometime soon.

I miss the Scilons in sailor suits down in Clearwater, FL headquarters from a few years back.

I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings.

Every time I see his name I have to remember he's the one I like, not Wes Anderson.

Really? I had always heard the actual number being something in the six figure range. Have their numbers really declined that much?

andrewagill: Really? I had always heard the actual number being something in the six figure range. Have their numbers really declined that much?


According real statistics from last year their number is estimated at around 40,000.

the scientologists add to their count everyone they send their mail publications to so according to them i'm also on the list. The guy who lived in my apartment sign up for some kind of Scientology newsletter they send as a joke so i was still getting it from time to time. It's some hilarious read, the most blatant ridiculous attempt to make you pay for their bullshiat "tech".
 
2012-07-21 07:09:41 AM
Every movie he has made is fantastic, including Magnolia and Punch Drunk Love, and Hoffman is my favorite actor, so I think I'll probably be seeing this one :P

Just US or worldwide? Adherents says 500K, thought I seem to remember something like 200K.

/But that might have been Zoroastrianism.

40,000 worldwide.
Scientology claims millions of members worldwide.

Like i said, according to Scientology's count method i'm an honest to Xenu Scientologist. In a nutshell: they are full of shiat.

Came here to say this. Best film of these four that are mentioned, IMHO.

Someone gave me a copy of that and told me it's great and I'll love it, so I watched it. About a month after my father died from cancer. It was a good film but I don't think I'll ever watch it again.

I read somewhere once that Scientology targets actors not necessarily because of their publiic profile, but also because compared to those in other professions actors and actresses very frequently have that unique combination of narcissism, naïvité, and deep pockets. People who believe that they can change the world with the help of Scientology and are willing to dig deep to get rid of all of their thetans like Elron said they could.
 
2012-07-21 09:51:03 AM
As a large-format cinema fan, I can't wait for the first totally 70mm film since Branagh's Hamlet. The whole thing was apparently filmed in Panavision System 65, & it looks amazing from that trailer!

That may be the case, but they always targeted actors and "celebrities". They opened the first Celebrity Centre in LA in 1955.

Billing is all about box office, and Phoenix was in Gladiator and a number of other high-grossing films.

Hoffman is one of the best actors of his generation, but he's not (yet) a huge draw; he can't "open" a movie.

Word? Consider my ass signed up! IMAX feels too large to me sometimes, everything no matter what it is becomes about landscape. With 70mm, you get the large scope, but the option to include the characters.

That was a farking great movie. The cast was extraordinary. Also it was the last time I actually had an intermission in a major movie theater.
