Ill post something more comprehensive later, but Caveats analysis is almost perfectly in line with how I felt about it. I'd personally give the film an 7.5/10 with Hardy earning a 10 for his stunning performance

Something short and sweet is fine, just as long as you give a rating.

i was referring more to you not even watching the movie again.

i mean, it's no big deal since you're not in the rotation.

His behavior is almost pathologically impulsive towards that direction.

Even his idea of "love" is nothing more than proximity and physical intimacy (stimulus-response).
Agreed. I kept expecting some kind of emotional connection to something, and the closest we got to that was when he was at his (new) home with his mom asking about where all his possessions were.

we should probably just kick him out if he can't get it together. 3 strikes and all that.

hypothetically, if everyone's chimed in by tomorrow, do we push up the date of the next pick?

I don't care either way, but no ones gonna watch it Sunday and probably won't watch tomorrow, so why not just keep the pick on Monday?

I say we stick to the Monday dates. Consistency is better.
