  • Alex, I don’t think Shame has been stamped NC-17. It sure will I believe after seeing it weeks ago.

    • Jose

      It has, I read about it in EW a few weeks back since there’s apperantly a bunch of full frontal Micheal Fassbender shots. Honestly though if the movie was marketed like that I’d imagine it’d be a hit.

      And yay for Halloween on Hulu.

    Movie Quote of the day is from Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

  • Shame, if it is like one of the best movies of the year … i don’t see why Academy wont recognize it. and if they don’t just because of the content and rating then i will have just one thing to say to them ….. SHAME :(

  • I think The Rum Diary looks just plain awful. I will probably skip it altogether.
