I need to see this. The Hubby saw it and loved it.

American Hustle (2013)

I didn't realize it when I first came out of the movie, but I totally agree with EC. I honestly didn't care much about the story but I adored all of the characters and had a blast just watching the actors - Jennifer Lawrence was a SCENE. STEALER. Honestly, just a joy to watch.

LOVED the movie.

Maniac - This is one of the better remakes I've seen.I felt the POV immersed the viewer in Franks fractured psyche perfectly,it was quite unnerving when you caught glimpses of his face in reflective surfaces (Including a neat nod to the original).Belting soundtrack too,it really worked well with the vibe of the film. 8/10

She definitely had some great scenes. Don't think I'd let her near my "science oven"

Cliched story for the most part but the dialogue was tight and the cast had no deadweight whatsoever. An enjoyable watch for sure.

Yeah man. I thought this film was gunna be good, but damn is it good. And if you feel this way then don't read the comments on netflix. Its like a tug of war between haters and lovers down there. However I never did get to watching the original. Should I try after seeing this or will it just disappoint with my skewed standards?

Personally I think the original is a classic and Joe Spinell is outstanding.

One of the best performances in horror period. That film is right up there for me.
