    Thor was my favorite Avenger. Didn't care much for Ultron.

    Saw it yesterday with little/no expectation which was a good thing.

    It was a love letter to Brian Wilson, by Brian Wilson. Think Private Parts with less hair. Even Pig Virus plays the pivotal role. The drink your milkshake kid and Cusack do a very good job, but the movie was just OK imo.

    Oh, Elizabeth Banks looks hot as hell in most of it. :up:

    It took me a while to get over the Cusack parts . The young Willson parts are a lot better . I would have liked to see more of that . Willson should have gone solo . The Mike Love shit always blew anyways .

    Saw it last weekend. Thought the recording sessions and young Brian losing his mind parts were better than the old Brian/Cusack parts. Giammatti played it just like pig virus. I was waiting for him to yell at Elizabeth Banks "YOU ARE THE MOTHERFUCKING ANTI CHRIST!!"

    I also dug the soundtrack and the background music, which was bits and pieces of old Beach Boys tunes.
    I thought Elizabeth Banks looked gorgeous.

    one thing i realy liked was the way the sound was in the theater. When he heard voices it moved around the room. I loved the ear ringing sound when his father wacked him also.

    I'm a big Beach Boys/Brian Wilson fan, but it's not playing at any theaters I like going to. I'm gonna have to wait for Netflix.

    :fil: Hmph. I liked his scenes, but I am a big Cusack fan. I thought the movie was really good.

    Haven't seen it, so asking from a semi-ignorant viewpoint.... I get that it's two different periods in his life, but Dano is weird-looking enough to pull off an older character w/ fat suit and makeup. Two actors just makes it odd, I'd imagine...

    I saw it last night. I'm a HUGE Brian Wilson fan, and I agree that the younger Brian scenes were great, but couldn't get over Cusak not being Cusak. Well done though, I thought.
