    Spring Breakers

    Harmony Korine's newest movie. I know we have some guys in here who've seen Gummo and Kids, so they know of Harmony Korine.

    Anyways, I first heard of this a few days ago before seeing any trailers and was confused. Didnt seem like a Korine movie, especially with a cast of Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez and Gucci Mane.

    But, after watching the trailer, I decided I need to see this. James Franco looks phenomenal. Movie doesn't look awesome but I'll see it for a performance alone.

    Anyone seen or even heard of it? I'd post a link to the trailer but I'm on mobile. Check it out.

    This movie's whole shtick is that 4 Disney *****es are not going to be in a Disney film. I don't think any one shows their TIIIIIIIIIITS so seems pointless.

    Have you seem a Harmony Korine movie? Have you seen the trailer or James Franco's acting?

    Also, it's seems like there's no shortage of nudity, if that's your only draw. Reviews have said Hudgens is the one that gets naked. Personally, I'm not drawn to the movie for the ****. I don't even know who those girls are besides hearing their names everywhere.

    I heard it was pretty damn good. Critics gave it a good review too.

    It's a 65 metacritic, 6.5 IMDB and 67% RT. seems pretty consistent.

    I just think it may have been mis-marketed as a teenie, party film. It's being labeled a drama and a party film is completely out of character for the director.

    From the plot details I've heard that couldn't be further from the truth.

    What are you referring to? It being a drama or party movie?

    Its a movie about girls that rob money to go on spring break........ Seriously how are people so bad at comprehending movies. I saw 1/4 of the trailer and I gathered that James Franco is a ring leader to these 4 attractive girls that rob people...

    Seriously man, some people suck at movies(this is just a general disdain for people who can't follow a ****ing movie that they watched for 2 hours, let alone a 45 second trailer)

    Are you aiming this at me?

    I'm not sure your quick synopsis is even correct.

    I haven't seen the movie but I gather that they rob someone in order to go somewhere for spring break and fall in with the wrong crowd once there. I don't think the movie is about a gang of robbers in bikinis like you're saying. Probably close, but I think it might be more of them trying to fend off danger as opposed to seeking it.

    Then again, I watched the trailer once a few days ago, so I could be wrong.

    I've read reviews that said its like Project X and Natural Born Killers combined and apparently a satire.

    This movie will blow, but not worse than Gummo.

    Might be one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

    nobody said his movies were good.

    Gummo really wasn't good. Weird as all hell too.

    I just want to see James Franco as a gangster rapper with a grill.

    C'mon man, it was soooo artsy. Maybe you just don't understand really sophisticated cinema like spaghetti, chocolate, and dirty bath water scenes and anything with Chloe Sevigny.

    I enjoyed Spring Breakers. I didn't really get anything out of it, but I thought Franco was awesome and that it was at least interesting.
