Man, I thought we were gonna get a live action Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law

Yeah. The problem I have with this movie is that it's about a washed up actor, not a superhero lawyer.

That term doesn't bode well in my opinion. Most black comedies are comedic in my opinion.

It bodes well in mine. It's a nice change of pace from the constant flow of unfunny crap like "A Millions Ways to Die in the West" and "22 Jump Street."

I can agree with a Million ways, but if you didn't find 22 jump street funny, frankly I'm not sure your even Human.

I wouldn't waste my time with it after the first one.

Now I have no friggin' clue what this is about. That trailer could just as well have been from a total re-write/re-shoot. That is---not at all what I thought based on the first teaser.

So, please give a synopsis about what it's about. As the last trailer I saw gave me the impression that he's having a mental breakdown and is hallucinating most of the events in the movie.

All I gotta say is, damn good film, this and The Babadook were complete surprises for me this year, I'll definitely be adding both Blurays to my collection when they release.

I think the only movie I liked recently more than Birdman was Whiplash, my main question is when is Keaton giving us another Beetlejuice?

Good question. I remember first seeing Michael Keaton in Ron Howard's Night Shift (yes, I'm that old) and really enjoyed his movies back in the 1980s but his career went into a nose dive after Batman Returns. I don't get what happened to him, bad agent perhaps? Anyways, I hadn't seen Birdman yet but I'm glad he is making a comeback of sorts. Another Ron Howard classic starring Michael Keaton is Gung Ho.

On a side note I did want to see Birdman last week but only had time for one film and that was American Sniper. Great movie and I'm surprised we don't have a thread on it, should I start one??

I guess so. Funny enough last Saturday was controversy movie day for me. First with American Sniper at the theater then The Interview that evening on Netflix :)

Overall I really enjoyed the movie and the cast was superb, Michael Keaton is such a great actor, Ed Norton was awesome!

The only real issue I had about the movie as I knew next to nothing about it based only on the trailers, I thought Keaton's character was going to go from being a washed up Broadway actor and return as Birdman, maybe use those super powers, fight some evil, save the day, etc. I enjoyed the film and story that was presented & the way it was filmed, its just not exactly what I expected as the Super Hero part never really happened.

I lasted 20 minutes into this flick. We had just finished watching "A million ways to die in the west", though, so maybe that was a factor.

I was surprised to see "The Interview" on Netflix. Great movie for nights spent in the nothing zone.

Night Shift is on HBO this month! Pretty hard to get past the early 1980s style at first but its cool because the film also stars The Fonz!
