They're staring to show the trailer for this, and I can't wait until it's out!! Should be sometime in Feb. 2016. Looks like another great, quirky movie with Clooney hamming it up like he did in O Brother, Where Art Thou? Set in 1950's Hollywood, packed with stars… can't wait! IMDB and Official website

I can't make heads or tails of this movie. I am not sure if I'll see it or not. It looks rather weird, even for the Coen brothers' standards.

The Coens are hit and miss. Their movies are either instant classics and go immediately and my favorites list, or they are an almost complete waste of time. I'm hoping this will be one of the good ones.

The Coen Brothers are on my list of directors who I'll see at the theater. After watching season 1 and season 2 of Fargo, and their influence on several episodes, and with season 3 not slated until 2017 - I'll need a fix in a hurry.

I loved Blood Simple. And Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, The Big Lebowski 1987 - 1998? Are you kidding me? That's 29 ★s right there. I haven't seen Intolerable Cruelty or The Ladykillers, but O Brother, Where Art Thou? and The Man Who Wasn't There were both winners. No Country, Burn After Reading, A Serious Man, True Grit, Inside Llewyn Davis? All winners.

I made it through The Man Who Wasn't There once. Once. That movie should have been called The Story That Wasn't There.

The Ladykillers is painfully bad. The Coen Brothers only true stinker.

Raising Arizona is fun but really over-rated.

the rest of their work is all really, really good.

The Coen brothers started off on the wrong foot with me. I had read that Raising Arizona was a movie that treated the kidnapping of a baby as a comedy - and it had Nicolas Cage in it - so I never saw it.

Over the years I've seen a few of their movies Fargo, No Country for Old Men, Barton Fink, Oh Brother Where art Thou. I haven't liked any of them ( I think I may have liked Barton Fink somewhat - its been a while). Oh I recently saw Inside Llewlen Davis and really disliked that one for the typical reasons - a protagonist you don't like, weird stuff in poor taste.

I didn't like O Brother, but I'd still go to this in a heartbeat.
