The Spectacular Now
20 Feet from Stardom
The World's End.
Don't bother if you're not British, though.
After Earth. Great job, Jaden. Xenu is SOOOO proud.
You Light Up My Life.
"This Is The End".
No kidding. Hilarious and strangely uplifting for a movie about self-absorbed actors during the apocalypse.
Why so, r6? I liked Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Paul, not so much. I think Simon Pegg and Nick Frost make a great comedy team.
We're the Millers
What happened to all of those fab political thrillers I so looked forward to experiencing?
Pacific Rim, bitches! It's got giant monsters! And giant robots!

That was good.
Loved The Conjuring.
Either Aliens or Top Gun. It's a toss up. I'm looking forward to The Fly and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home in the fall. The worst movie of the summer was definitely Cobra, fer shur.
1st: Fruitvale Station
2nd: Frances Ha
I liked Pacific Rim a lot.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
The way way back.
In a World
R16, you missed Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I saw it three times this summer!
The Spectacular Now.
R22, What a fun movie, FBDO. I really miss LOL comedies, like the Zucker Abrams Zucker ones, with their subtle political humor thrown in. Can Hollywood at least make a few political thrillers, like the ones that starred Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin? Actually the screenwriter and director makes more of a difference in the final result.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
