Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Very decent film. Gripping in places and well written, remarkably so for someone as young as Chazelle at the time.

Fun Fact: Andrew's shirts go from light colour in earlier scenes, gradually to...

I think it's something like:

Jake Gyllenhall's character ends up surviving, in real world, yet he helped stop a bomb going off in a simulation. Been years since I watched it though.

I don't agree. Maybe most of the movies that you watch cost millions. But of all the hundreds of thousands of films made every year, a minimal percentage will be costing 'millions'.

Source Code is good but I remember feeling they totally botched the ending via a massive plot hole, but now I can't remember why.

Re: Abandoned films that you think they should have been made

The answer to this is always 'A Topiary', by Shane Carruth.
