I actually don't mind the puffy down-and-outer that he is in essentially everything, when it's a light hearted Owen Wilson-featuring joke around or something.

but this isn't that.

edit: not saying that the movies aren't crap, btw. I just don't mind watching crap movies now and then.

Finally finished this the other day...stupid wifey didn't like it so was always having to find time to watch it when she was out/asleep/gagged and tied up.

Nothing short of brilliance! So well done with everything, the story, the pacing, the acting, the cin-tog...A fucking plus plus

I know it's gone down in history as a turd, but I still have a soft spot for it. I thought the way it portrayed the world inside a damaged mind was fucking excellent. J-Lo and the waking world plot, not so great.

Don't bother watching if not high though.

So we have Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly.

Big on paper. Will be interesting to see if they can reach the height of S1.

Oh, and I like Rachel. TD now with added candy...

So if any of you wanted to know more about Carcosa and the Yellow King, this is the source material those names were drawn from. It doesn't really explain anything, but it's interesting reading and gives some insight into the tone that the writers were going for.

Cool looks great. Colin Farrell looks suitably fucked up and I'm glad it's the kind of show that resists tarting up the gals.

You can tell that with no dialogue, a few looks, a push and a grimace?

Not saying it doesn't look awesome, but let's wait until we see him in action hey?

Um, acting isn't just about speaking dialogue dude. My comment was about as informed as anyone elses who saif that TD2 looks good from the trailer. But I do realise I can't say for sure.

Swingers? Return to Paradise? Clay Pigeons? Into the Wild? Even The Break-Up I thought he was pretty good in.

Been so long since seeing Swingers, I remember the movies as a whole is good, but can't say about Vaughan specifically...haven't seen the other two, but The Break Up?!?! :blurgh: That was so fucking shit, as a movie, how can you judge someone as being good when the movie is so turd-tastic?

So, you can't really say he hasn't brought an A game to a movie if basically all you've seen of him is the dreck he has produced in the last 10 years. Into The Wild was the last good performance I've watched of his. That was in 2007. The Break-Up was 2006. I agree the film was pretty shit but a film being shit doesn't necessarily mean the acting was the reason. That movie didn't know what it wanted to be tonally which I think had more to do with the writing and the directing than the performances.

Swingers he is awesome in but he's probably only playing a version of himself. In Clay Pigeons he plays a serial killer and from memory he was quite authentically creepy. I haven't seen it recently to know if the movie has aged or not but I remember him being quite good. And Return to Paradise he was pretty good too in a dramatic role. Those last 3 roles were all mid-to-late 90s though.

I'm not saying the dude has ever produced a Jake La Motta (De Niro in Raging Bull) or a Michael Corleone (Pacino in The Godfather) or a Harry Caul (Gene Hackman in The Conversation) type performance, I'm just saying he can act but has chosen to spend the last 5-10 years playing the same one-note character. True Detective looks like showing the world once more that he can produce the goods with the right material.

edit: You should watch Swingers once a year otherwise you're not really a dude .

The direction was lacking I felt, but that was to be expected when you get Justin Lin to direct.

Apart from that I really enjoyed it.

Seeing Colin Farrell stare at that skeleton with the crown got my hopes up for more occult stuff.

Really? I thought it was fucking awesome end to end. The way the ep went from day to night and shit got real for each of the characters was amazing. Huge thumbs up from me.

I like how it was based in Los Santos.

Also, how is Taylor Kitsch still booking jobs?
He is terrible at acting.

yeah i enjoyed it.. huge shoes to fill after season 1, but there were some good signs in that episode.


Most of the critics, bloggers etc seem to be hanging shit all over it though.. slagging off good quality TV seems to be the thing to do at the moment in that world.

Yeah I saw some of that, half of them are just ridiculous.

One actually criticised that they spent most of the first episode on establishing characters.

I liked it, very different feel from the first but with one main theme that seems to be constant, cops with fucked up lives!

keen to see where they take it.
