Title: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: converse29 on August 12, 2006, 10:13:29 PM
Right now I'm checking out "Inside Man". This is Spike Lee's latest movie with Denzel Washington. Not bad but not great(I've already seen this but I'm watching it with some friends right now who haven't). I liked Mo Better Blues more. How about the rest of the crew?

I recently saw V For Vendetta, and liked it too.

Last one I saw was Talladega Nights.

Excellent movie.  Will Farrell kicks ass.  However, I found the 1st half to be much funnier than the 2nd half.  Movie halfway became serious in the 2nd half.

Definitely worth the price of admission!

kingdom of heaven... pretty good... got me reading wikipedia about the crusades and that time period, so i guess for that reason it was good.

war of the worlds (remake)... liked the production & special effects, but i gotta say that the story is weak!  really a boring storyline imo...

got charlie & the chocolate factory recording right now on HBO, so we'll see how that is.

I've seen that twice now, and I really noticed the level of improv the 2nd time around(also I read a few articles about how improv based the whole film is).  It really blows my mind how comedy improv is like music improv.  Its all about the groove  :wink:

Anything done by Christopher Guest is unbelievably funny.  For favorites, I might go in the order they were made, Waiting, Best, Mighty Wind.  Spinal tap, though not BY him, I group with his movies; and it is the top.  I hope all loved the Tap reunion in A Mighty Wind. 

Talladega was pretty funny (especially overcoming his fear of driving... awesome).  If there is any movie worth seeing in a theater, it is "The Descent." 

A horror movie about spelunking.  Gotta see it in a dark theater.  If you see it in the future, all you will say is, "Man, I wish I had seen that in a theater."

I just saw V for Vendetta, as well.  Pretty good flick.

If you like Kentucky Fried Movie, check out the Groove Tube.  It is Chevy Chase's first movie (I think).  Richard Belzer is in it, too.  Personally, I think GT is funnier than KFM, but that's just me.

KFM is awesome.  Always good to see Amazon Women on the Moon after that.

The Big Lebowski is one of my favorites.   "I just want my rug back"

Last movie I saw, Firefox.  1980, Clint Eastwood.  Was on at 5:30 the other morning on Cinemax and it was pouring so I watched it rather than going running before work.

One of the first times I got stoned, we were at my friend Jasons house watching the "Sex O' Clock News", it was from the same crew that did the Kentucky Fried Movie...and if you've ever seen it...there's this skit called "The Fed Up Express".  We kept laughing hysterically and rewinding it and watching it....for about 10 minutes.  Classic stuff.

Last movie I watched was "Sin City", classic!
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: cactusfan on August 13, 2006, 09:40:49 PM
if you're going to watch Kentucky Fried Movie-- and you should-- you should really watch Bruce Lee's Enter The Dragon first. trust me.

actually, same with Airplane! if you haven't seen that for awhile, try watching Airport '75 first, then watching Airplane! it's actually a tough call deciding which one is funnier.

speaking of those guys, Naked Gun and Top Secret are hilarious, too.


some asshead friend of mine dragged me to the new Superman. wow. what a disaster of a movie. i mean it's one thing to break the laws of physics in a superhero movie, i'm fine with that, but you can't break the rules of your superhero universe! i mean the frickin thing starts with superman flying off for five years to the remains of Krypton--- now i don't know nothin about comic books and superman and alla that shit, but come on, i thought it was our SUN that gave him his powers? how the fuck did he fly through space? and that was just the opening...

Dude. i saw that the other morning too. Funny - horrible SFX.

Last movie I watched was Office Space. it was on IFC the other day. Nice to see the uncut version. Caught most of Warren Miller's Impact last night as well. Sick snow footage.

I've been more into TV shows on DVD lately.  Yesterday I watched the Battlestar Galatica pilot miniseries (VERY good for TV Sci-Fi), and a couple episodes of Entourage.   

I highly recommend Entourage, especially if you've spent anytime in L.A.  Jeremy Piven absolutely kills in it, I love how a lot of the humor is really subtle and visual, best show I've gotten into since Sopranos.

Post by: cactusfan on August 14, 2006, 12:01:39 AM
just watched The Enigma of Kasper Hauser, '75 movie by werner herzog. it was a trip. strange and low-key. i liked it.

if perhaps you aren't familiar with herzog, you really ought to watch Aguirre, The Wrath of God. about a spanish expedition into south america to find the lost city of gold. with the insane klaus kinski. very weird and awesome movie.

Hmmm, the Wire, dunno about that, is it an HBO show? 

Hopefully it won't be too long until a Rome set comes in so I can check that out, looks pretty cool. 
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: jedifunk on August 14, 2006, 12:50:11 AM
yeah, Rome was awesome too, cant wait for season 2!

can't believe you havent at least heard of the wire... let alone seen the 1st 3 season...  yeah its on HBO, and like i said, its the best show on TV... way better than sopranos... season 4 starts the 1st weekend in september... i cant wait!

favorite tv shows:
1. wire
2. sportscenter (does that count?)
3. entourage
4. csi... all of them
5. rome

I just watched "The Butterfly Effect".

Wow.  If I had ever written a movie, I would have liked to have written that one.

It was way better than Donnie Darko, which I suspect just ripped off the entire idea.

Donnie Darko is a better MADE movie, but "The Butterfly Effect" is the better actual one.  Both endings were really good, but I think the actual screening ending made more of an emotional impact and had a better resolution than the directors ending (which I could smell coming from a mile away... and didn't make much sense, since he couldn't have actually remembered his birth, and a movie of him being born wouldn't trigger the effect deep within him.)

I did not like his reaction to having no arms (I wish he would have sucked it all up), however, the reason he went back did make sense.

I thought the explanation of the knife blackout was PHENOMENAL.

Nice DEUS EX MACHINA with the home movies... but I guess the writer had to figure a way out of that one.

I can't say enough about the movie...and I know it's not the best one ever...but it's one I relate to a lot on a personal level.

Just rented episode I of the Wire.  Never seen an episode, but I've heard it's a really good show.  Plus, I think it's filmed in Baltimore. :-D 
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: xanadux3 on August 14, 2006, 07:28:49 AM
i heard the butterfly effect got booed at sundance. I think its only because its Aston Kutcher who plays the main role. I thought the movie was really interesting and good. Never saw Donnie Darco though I never knew it had the same concept I'll have to check that one out.
I just finished watching Friday Night Lights, my wife and I were channel surfing and it was just starting so we watched it. I had seen it once before a while ago and didnt remember it. The ending is kind of a let down, not the greatest movie ever but it was alright. I think Remeber the Titans is a better football movie.

Well shoot, as long as it has the discussion has switched to TV and looking at Phan's avatar.  "Curb Your Enthusiasm."  I can almost NOT watch that show.   The situations get soooo uncomfortable on that show every once and a while.  I feel pain for him every time.... I love it.

thats why its so funny imo.  He constantly makes statements that are politcally incorrect and offensive that its just crap your pants funny.  For example, I forget the episode but he says something like, if jesus had been a jane, I would of been a christian, but a guy as a god, it's kind of gay. don't you think? Now a intelligent, good looking woman, who wouldn't be a christian?  add to the fact that the whole show is improv and I'm hooked.

The Butterfly Effect was the most shopped script in Hollywood beginning in like 99 I think?  It never would have seen production, except that somehow Ashton read the script in 2003 and atached his name as a producer.

Yeah.  I loved it.  I didn't completely love it until the ending, however.  The ending MADE the movie.

In other news, last night I finally saw THE DESCENT.

- the last kiss...... depressing movie.  also be aware, watching this movie with your significant other can be EXTREMELY uncomfortable...  it deals with things unsaid & things thought, in a relationship, and how that can kill a relationship.

Last Movie I went to see at the theater: Bobby  The 24 hours leading up to the assassination of RFK.  Pretty good movie.  I really had no idea how much people were in love with this man.  Even if it was a movie, there is only so much you can embellish.  I'll admit it, I didn't know a whole lot about the story going in, but he was portrayed as someone who had the power to really move people.  Oh, and the kids on LSD made for some great humor.  It was truly an All Star line up: Sharon Stone, Ashton Kutcher, and many others who are slipping my mind right now

Last movies I have watched at home:  Hotel Rwanda  This movie was very thought provoking and very well put together.  Kind of reminds you of Hitler Germany, in that, they were trying to erase an entire race of people.  Sad, just sad.  It also really opens your eyes as to how other nations are really unwilling to help out African countries in their time of need.

Die Hard 2  CLASSIC!!!!!!!

Robo Cop  Isn't On-Demand a wonderful thing?  I just acquired it in this last month after never having the opportunity to use it and have been loving it.  Now for the movie.  Talk about violence.  I hadn't;t seen this movie in 10 years, easy.  I had forgotten that the guy who plays "Red" Foreman in "That 70's Show" was in it.  Pretty average movie, but also a classic.

I also decided to give Netflix a try.  We'll see how it goes, but the first movie in my "queue" is Walk The Line  I am truly embarrassed to say that I never got around to seeing it.  So I'll report back when I do.

I don't even know where to start with that one...  Joan rules on that DVD, and she's amongst a small group of people who I can tolerate singing Garcia/Hunter lyrics.  She just nails Help On The Way.

strange. i liked it a lot until the golem monsters showed up. after that it kinda fell apart, could never tell who was who and didn't care, and the one survivor was hateful. great first half though.

Chinatown.

one of the greats. i hope you saw it widescreen. so beautifully shot. and written. and acted. i love the foreshadowing of dunaway getting her eye shot out. the two watches jake leaves under a car-- one broken. one tail light of the car jake kicks out. one tail light shot out. and of course when jake points to her eye seeing a 'flaw' in it. i'll say it's a flaw. it's a bullet!

love the hand-held camerawork, very unusual for this kind of movie at that time. and director roman polanski as the little crook who slices jake's nose.

My GF and I went to see the last king of Scotland, the story of Idi Amin and how he ruled in Uganda.   :-o  As one reviewer put it, "Whitaker switches from jovial teddy bear to a maniacal bull in an instant"  It was very well done, and IMO, Whitaker was great.  However, it was pretty gory in certain parts. 

EDIT: I forgot to add that it was pretty thought provoking.  We both agreed that it is a good thing that they are putting these types of movies out to the general public.  We figured that a story like this would go un-noticed by the average person.  I'll admit that I knew very little about the subject before the movie, but it def. inspired me to do some more research after the fact.  Oh, and I would recomend seeing it.   

I also watched Zoolander on sunday morning.  For whatever reason, I find this movie to be absolutely hilarious.

Apocalypse Now has been one of my favorite movies for a long time

Mine too! Well, I didn't see it until about '94 I think. I bought the VHS then. Yesterday I finally bought the DVD = widescreen, Dolby 5.1, extra scenes. It's almost like a new film.

What's your favorite line in the movie?
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: cactusfan on February 06, 2007, 02:48:47 AM
gonna get me some mangos, man...

bye tiger!

never get off the boat.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Smells like... victory.

I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. it's my nightmare.

Charlie don't surf!

Someday this war's gonna end.

You're an errand boy sent by grocery clerks to collect a bill.


a classic. i saw the redux version. the extra scenes are good in themselves, and sure it's interesting to see the other stuff they shot... but everytime one came on the screen it was like 'and we now take a break from the movie...'  Coppola worked on that movie till he went insane. it's exactly what it needs to be. sticking in new scenes just fucks it up. it's like lucas and star wars, just leave these movies alone! dvd extras are interesting, but i'm getting sick of great movies being re-edited.

if you've never seen the doc on the making of Apocalypse-- Hearts of Darkness-- you must watch it immediately. it's awesome.
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: rowjimmy on February 06, 2007, 08:14:27 AM
I love that Apocalypse Now a few dozen times. Saw the redux in the theater and I liked it but I think that, aside from the French Plantation Scene, most of the original edits were warranted. The documentary, Hearts of Darkness, imo, is almost closer to the original book than Apocalypse Now.

Favorite Lines:

Willard- every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the bush, he gets stronger.

Chef- Lance, hey Lance. What do you think?
Lance- It's beautiful.
Chef- What's the matter with you? You're acting kinda weird.
Lance- Hey, you know that last tab of acid I was saving? I dropped it.
Chef- You dropped acid? Far out.

Dennis Hopper - I'm a little man, he's a great man. I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas.

Kurtz - We train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won't allow them to write fuck on their airplanes because it's obscene.

"An Inconvenient Truth" By Al Gore

I just watched it last night.  Before watching, I had heard it was "Fairly Bipartisan".  After watching, I have NO IDEA what my friend was talking about.  Gore took every chance he got to dig at the current administration and promote himself.  HOWEVER, I really enjoyed the movie; he presented some very interesting facts backed up with graphs/pictures and shared some scary predictions made by scientists around the world.  So, in short, I think it is great what he is doing, and hopefully it will open some peoples eyes as to how bad we are actually being to mother earth.  But my only issue with the movie is that he never proposes any solutions to the growing problem.  It was more of a "we're in grave danger and if we don't do something, our kids will never know the earth as we did" 

:EDIT: And yes, I would recommend it.

yeah, i'm startin to think that the Marvel movies were better before they got so main stream hollywood...

which is a shame, because the big budjets should allow for more excellent special effects, and better actors...

though Xmen 3 was such a bummer for me... i really liked the 1st two, and they completely dropped the ball on the 3rd one... and the effects became what drove the movie.

Post by: mattstick on February 22, 2007, 05:26:23 PM

They went soft with Ghost Rider - it should've been dark and sinister but it was'nt.

For Daredevil they mis-cast most of the film and chose possibly the worst villans in the Marvel Universe.  Also, Daredevil is best when he's with Spiderman, so Spidey should've been in it too.

Elektra was pretty good though, I've watched it a few times and I kinda dug it...

My only problem with X-Men 3 was that there were too many characters, kind of unnecessary really.

I guess they won't be making any more X-Men films so they can concentrate on Wolverine...

agreed, for the most part. xmen3 for me was a total wash, i won't even get into it... in fact i hated it so much i have almost forgotten all about it.

i don't have high hopes for the Wolverine flick.  which is sad, seeing as there is so much potential. the comment about ghoost rider needing to be a more sinister take is generally how i feel about most of the marvel/comic flicks that come out. thats what made some of the batman movies so good, and the other ones bad. that series of movies should be an example as to how to make a comic book film, and how not to.

anyway, wolverine was always one of my persoanl favorite characters in the mainstream books and also graphic novels. persoanlly, i would be eternally satisfied if they just made the "Wolverine & Havoc Meltdown" graphic novels into a movie. Now THAT would be a movie... and super easy to make to.

i can still dream i guess.


Best Comic book Movies???

anyone?

off the top of my head:

-Batman 1, and the new one was nice too.
-Xmen2, then xmen 1 is good, but i def. prefer the second one.
-Sin city.

those might be my favs...

Xmen3 had issues and was def. Bogged down by its special effects. Some of those scenes (the 'death' of Xavier for example) ran too long because the effects guys were busy spooging on the film.

A friend had a book at his house tonight, showed it to ma after dinner, "the art of 300".
Basically it shows images of the comic and how they are rendered on the film along with design sketches and sets and stuff from the film. Hot stuff.

Not for the kiddies...

yeah, 300 looks cool. isn't it directed by that ass who made the dawn of the dead remake? that movie seriously sucked. i'll still check out this one, i suppose.

i watched Excalibur. from '80. i'd forgotten everything about it. and let me just say: wow. not really good in any sense of the word. but kind of fascinating. it was considered very gritty and cutting edge when it came out. now it's more like watching a bad ren faire. the director, john boorman, who once made amazing movies like Deliverance and Point Blank, also made Zardoz in the early '70s. you must all watch Zardoz if you've never seen it. one of the most original, gripping, and amazingly bad movies ever made. i guarantee you'll watch the entire thing with your jaw on the floor. and it stars sean connery! this in the '70s. not sean's best period.

also watched Woyzeck, a werner herzog movie from the '70s. very strange. very european. good, though. stars the incomparably insane klaus kinski. if you're curious about this mad and fascinating actor, check out herzog's Aguirre, The Wrath of God. great stuff. there's also a doc about their (herzog + kinski) working relationship called My Best Fiend that's very entertaining.

speaking of herzog... i doubt that anyone here would be into getting extremely stoned and watching an atmospheric, surreal, dreamlike movie with an awesome, trippy, middle eastern influenced soundtrack, but if such a person exists, they might enjoy herzog's latest, The Wild Blue Yonder. it's not normal in any sense of the word. i loved it...

The best part is that he also likes cheesy soundtracks and has his own taste. All at four. He's a raging painter. Man I love my life now. A far cry from what it once was.

My ten year old (Althea) tends to listen to poppier junk much of the time but sometimes she dips into the Phish cds or mixes that I've given her. She also listens to Keller and has been to several shows with me.

The 3yo (Piper) loves Garcia/Grisman's "Not for Kids Only", Dan Zane's "House Party" (which features Bob Weir on one tune!), Jack Johnson's Curious George sndtrk (suggested by jedifunk) and she dances to anything funky.

Piper is the one who can carry a tune. I think she has some serious musical aptitude.

The wife and I watched Stranger Than Fiction this weekend. Anybody else like that one a lot? We both thought it was great! A little artsy (in a good way) but not so much that it takes away from the comedy of it.

The guitar store scene, though brief, was my favorite part.  :lol:

Stranger Than Fiction was pretty good.  So was the Prestige, but I may have liked Illusionist a little more...hard to say, both are good, and if you like one, you'll like the other.  Last movied I -tried- to watch was Tenacious D Pick of Destiny...what a total POS....I like jack Black and tenacious d and I just could not take it...maybe I wasn't in the mood, but I couldn't get through 20 minutes of it (and I was stoned too....)

 :lol: I just watched that 2 nights ago. I saw it at the theater too. After watching the rental I said the same thing. I'll be buying that one. I think it is Scorsese's best film since Casino. Well....No Direction Home is friggin' awesome but it's a different type of film all together.

I personally don't care how many mob-type movies he makes with similar soundtracks. I'll probably really like them all.

I watched Good Fellas last night on Spike and it just wasn't the same. Pesce told the guy in the bar to go "feed" his mother.  :roll: Oh brother..... I need to buy that one too. Edited for TV just doesn't cut it.

It kinda blows - probably the silliest of the Connery Bond's, but the gay villians are rather amusing. 

Plenty O'Toole and Tiffany Case are great 70s-era Bond girls.

OMG, I laughed so hard at the Rogue Wave in that movie.

Then I heard that a rouge wave hit the coast of Newfoundland, so I guess they do exist.

Posiedon was pure hollywood garbage though.

Brazil. What a film. :-o

that is a great movie.
i saw it when it first opened, i was like a freshman in high school and it seriously blew a fuse in my brain. i had to see it many times after that.

the fight to get it released is pretty amazing, don't know if y'all are aware of what went on at the time. there's a very entertaining book called 'the battle of brazil' that tells the tale. the best part is that every chapter is named using one of the many, many alternate names the studio came up with, since they hated the name 'brazil.'
a few examples, and these are real, mind you:
If Osmosis, Who Are You?
Can Anyone Here Play The Cymbals?
Explanada Fortuna Is Not My Real Name
Lord of The Files
This Escalator Doesn't Stop At Your Station
Gnu Yak, Gnu Yak, And Other Bestial Places

brazil and time bandits are gilliam's best two movies, i'd say.

i love the scene just before the deer hunt, where john cazale has forgotten everything again, and deniro gets up in his face, holds up a bullet and says "See this? This is this. This ain't something else. THIS is THIS." i don't know why exactly, but i love that line.

  My wife was definately disturbed. Its funny, most of the movies my wife finds really disturbing are some of my favorites (Deer Hunter, Clockwork, Godfather). If she came home from a film I haven't seen and was terriby upset by it, I generally know right off that its got to be a great flick.

The Departed - probably one of the best movies in the last quarter century.  masterful from start to finish.

Stranger Than Fiction - fascinating story, and amazingly superb acting from Will Ferrell.  Dustin Hoffman's presence is only an awesome bonus.


also watched Borat (meh, the HBO series is funnier) and Pick of Destiny (which was OK, but nothing spectacular)

Watched a *ahem*   "Liberated" copy of 300 last night and thought it was pretty good.

I watched two movies last week. One of them was 300. I really enjoyed, really well done over the top violence, with a very surreal style. Not a good date movie, however.

I also saw Beufort, an Israeli movie about an Israeli base in Lebanon set in 2001 (I think). It deals with the constant shelling of the base, and the eventual evacuation of said base when Israel retreated from Lebanon in that same year. Very interesting movie, that shows a more realistic perspective on military service then, say, Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers, since the behaviour of the characters seemed to make a lot more sense to me, and made the movie feel much more real. Anyways, if you get a chance to see it somehow, I highly recommend it (english subtitles are included even in the Israeli version of the movie, so no worrys about that).

the first movie through the second set of previews, i totally agree--- fucking awesome. robert rodriguez just so completely 'gets' what a grindhouse movie is. zombies, babes, non-stop carnage. the missing reel was perfect, the faux degraded film stock, everything was great.
but i thought the tarantino movie utterly sucked. endless talking between a bunch of meaningless characters in what sounded like a dull parody of tarantino-speak. i have no idea what he was thinking. has he ever seen a grindhouse movie with an hour of chatter before there's any action? come on! there was some good car action at the end, and some funny bits, but that was like 20 minutes out of an hour and a half.
sorry to rant, it just pissed me off.
ultimately, the movie i really wanted to see was 'werewolf women of the ss.' now THAT looked like a grindhouse flick!

An Irish film - The Secret of Roan Inish.

jaimie! hide yer shame!

i love that little movie.
made by john sayles, one of the granddaddys of indy cinema.
his best movie is probably Matewan, a b/w movie about coal miners in virginia in the depression, or thereabouts.
sayles used to make lots of money writing and/or rewriting big hollywood movies, then use the money to finance his little movies. smart guy. for example, he wrote The Howling, a pretty decent werewolf movie from '81 (though not as good as the other werewolf movie of '81, An American Werewolf in London, written and directed by john landis, of Animal House and Blues Brothers fame).

i just saw a screening of Pennies from Heaven, an odd little musical from '82 starring steve martin, bernadette peters and christopher walken. it didn't do well when it came out because it's rather depressing for a musical. ths songs are all from the '30s or so, and the actors just mouth the words while doing all sorts of dance numbers, the conceit being that steve martin is imagining everyone singing and dancing. steve martin's a damn fine tap dancer. and christopher walken-- well, you may know he can dance from that fatboy slim video, but he's amazing in this movie, does some amazing tap dancing while doing a strip-tease. it's something else.

but then i have strong reactions to movies, good and bad.

i just watched About Schmidt. wow. pretty great. i mean, yes, i'm drinking an enormous glass of whiskey now, just to keep the misery at bay, but depressing or not, that's quite a movie.

and i watched Reds the other night. anyone? warren beatty, '81, really long. damn fine movie. diane keaton is just absolutely brilliant. i think that was her last great movie. she was so amazing once. oh well.

i remember as a kid when Reds was up for a best picture oscar and i couldn't understand why everyone was saying it was going to win, when it was up against Raiders of The Lost Ark, the Single Greatest Movie In All Of History (to a 10 year old, at least). it just made no sense whatsoever. of course they both lost to a movie about jogging on the beach to vangelis music. so it goes.

I really like him as Bond, and remember being excited when he got the role. I just think they weren't trying very hard with his movies, much like the Timothy Dalton years.  Another great actor, but just didn't give him good Bond roles to play.

Hot Fuzz is never as funny as the best parts of Shaun, but it didn't get boring either.

finally, insane spanish filmmaker Jodorowsky has a few movies released on DVD.

you all MUST watch The Holy Mountain. it is one of the weirdest movies you'll ever see. and that's entertainingly weird, not annoyingly weird. i saw it in a theater a few months ago and holy crap was it hilarious and bizarre and great.

jodorowsky's previous movie, El Topo, is also out, and it's also bizarre and excellent. John Lennon liked it so much he helped finance the making of Holy Mountain. (these were both made in the early '70s).

throw it in your netflix queue! i'm sure whichever will ferrell move is on tap can wait a few more days...  :wink:

The book which The Beach is based on is brilliant, so even if the movie isn't great it's still based on a cool concept.

DiCaprio is fun to watch in Catch Me If You Can, but it's not a great acting performance (unlike Tom Hanks, who is brilliant in his role).

I dunno mang, I seriously hated it, especially toward the end when DiCaprio was all manical in the jungle, pretty laughable and excruciating.

Children Of Men was OK...

I got a kick out of the Animals references. The sheep at the end kind of pulled it all together. The Battersea Power Staion is always cool to see. Something about those 4 big smoke stacks. When I saw them up close a few years ago I started getting light headed. There wasn't even a pig in sight.

Freeda People (John Lennon) fit nicely too.

It was sort of Mad Maxish in a way. I wish they would have followed that genre a little more closely though and had less unnecessary dialogue. It seemed like there was a lot of rubbish lines. It could have been more surreal if they hadn't tried to reveal so much.

Still, it was OK. I'll probably watch it again sometime.

that's odd. i thought one of its strengths was in a lack of needless expository dialogue. very little is overtly explained. but it's all laid out so well that you understand what's going on. or so i thought.

what, then, is a sci-fi movie? spaceships and laser beams? seems like taking the present, extrapolating, and setting your story in that extrapolated future time is exactly what science fiction is. how does your definition differ?

I was just thinking while all the news men were sort of narrating the beginning it might have been more enjoyable and surreal if they left us guessing a little as to what was going on instead of laying it all on the table up front in the beginning of the film. While I was watching this I was thinking about Mad Max or 12 Monkeys and thinking how cool those were in that you were figuring it out as it went along. This movie brought the story to you on a TV dinner tray table and didn't leave any room for interpretation. At least that's the way I saw it.

I'll butt in here...

Star Wars is in the past. Is that not Science Fiction?  :wink: I don't think setting a story in the future has anything to do with the definition of science fiction. This might be too generic but I think science fiction simply means that it is untrue events or technology that can not be explained or possible by modern science (ie laser beams, spaceships, time machines, beaming...and...oh yes...the schwartz).

As a genre I guess this would go in with Futuristic/Apocalyptic. Is that a real title? I don't know but I guess it fits.

well we agree to disagree on the first point, i guess. i thought the intro to Children of Men did a nice job setting up the future world realistically and briefly in discussing the youngest person on earth having died. and the point of making that clear is to show the hero's total indifference to it, whereas everyone else is in tears. the world is ending, and he doesn't give a shit.

as for sci-fi, no, star wars isn't science fiction. it's a western dressed up with a bunch of spaceships!
by your definition, the road warrior isn't sf? because there's no futuristic technology? i would say that it is sf, because it's set in a future extrapolated from our present. it's an educated guess, or a fantastical leap. either way, that's science fiction.

star wars could best be shelved under 'fantasy' in that it has no connection to anything in the here and now, aside from being about people.

same with setting sf-like movies in the past, ala jules verne. i'd call those fantasy as well. in such cases, we KNOW that stuff didn't happen. sf presents possible futures, however out there or seemingly unlikely that future might be. or however mundane it might be.

"Science fiction is a broad genre of fiction that often involves speculations based on current science or technology. It is commonly abbreviated as SF or sci-fi. Science fiction is found in books, art, television, movies, games, theater, and other media."

you could reduce many movies in the same way. bladerunner is about a fugitive who wishes he didn't have to die, and a man sent to hunt him down. setting it in the future and having the fugitive (and the hunter) be robots is merely a device to get at the notions of our very human expiration dates and the uselessness of asking our 'creator' for more life. for example.

okay, i know, this isn't worth debating. one should shelve one's dvds any way one wants.

I left some comments here and in the other thread for Spidey-3. Got shut down both times.  :samurai:

Yeah, the relationship stuff is heavy. Probably not more than the 1st two though. It sort of builds all along the way I think.

I kind of like the relationship stuff. As long as it's not so much that it's a chick flick. Kind of like in Attack Of The Clones. It needs that stuff in order for us to get that feeling of where they are coming from inside for the rest to fall into place. I guess...

never heard of it! it is now on my netflix queue.
you have seen Das Boot, i presume? one of my favorite WWII flicks.


i saw the zombie movie last night, 28 Weeks Later. definitely pales compared to the first one. some good action scenes, a nice overall metaphor going on regarding america fucking up iraq, but other than that the best part of the movie was lauging at how amazingly stupid it is. no one really does anything a real human being would do, they only do things convenient for the filmmakers. which things inevitably involve zombies and explosions, so whatever.  definitely a rental.

Cocaine Cowboys - documentary about how cocaine trade started in Miami. Crazy shit/real people and stories.

The fountain
- newest movie by daren arenofsky [sp?], same director who made pi and requiem for a dream

Seriously, watch the fountain though. CRAZY visuals throughout and supposedly all of the wildest shit is all created in a peatree dish, with a crazy chemical to record chemical interaction.
"Parks brewed chemicals and bacteria together to create reactions of which Schrecker and Dawson shot 20,000 feet worth of film in the course of eight weeks for The Fountain.[21] To create the effects, Peter Parks had taken advantage of fluid dynamics, which affected the behavior of the substances that he photographed"

So I finally got around to watching Casino Royale last night.  I thought it was great, even though I was struggling to stay awake towards the end.  It wasn't because of the movie.  Just tired in general.  I would reccomend it to others.  That first chase scene was pretty incredible.

i saw The Fountain when it came out. very cool, unique visuals, definitely. but the story was seriously weak. didn't do it for me at all. i like Pi the best of his three movies. still, i'm glad he's out there doing what he's doing. i'll see anything that looks original. i'd rather see a unique failure than damn near any of the shit hollywood cranks out.

Through A Glass Darkly
any ingmar bergman fans here? (cue crickets). swedish filmmaker, brilliant. this is from the early '60s, one of many movies he made set on little islands with just a few actors, in this case four. about a woman who goes crazy. simple yet effective. not his best by any means, but interesting.
if you feel like exploring his films, start with the most famous, The Seventh Seal (where Death famously plays chess with a dark ages knight, lampooned you may recall in Bill and Ted Go To Hell, er, i mean their Bogus Journey (the hell title was the original but they decided it was too controversial)), then try The Shame, a grim movie about war, or the surreal Hour of The Wolf. anything he did in the '60s is worth watching.

strangely enough, bergman was woody allen's biggest influence as a filmmaker. woody tried to imitate a bergman movie when he made Interiors, a serious film that came out after Annie Hall. it kind of sucked. woody wasn't meant to be grimly serious. in the '80s woody finally got to cast Max von Sydow in a movie (hannah & her sisters), Sydow being the actor who appeared in most of bergman's movies, and woody also started using bergman's genius cinematographer, Sven Nykvist, on a number of movies.

um, yeah. i could go on...

Cape Fear

the original, from '62, with gregory peck and robert mitchum, who is the personification of pure evil. it's a really twisted movie. i'm surprised scorsese remade it, it's so perfect as it is. makes the remake look like a ridiculous cartoon.


Knocked Up

some good laughs, but the plot is standard issue hollywood romatic comedy, really safe and bland. at least a lot of the jokes were good, and i like paul rudd a lot. there's a scene where he's on mushrooms in a vegas hotel that's hilarious. overall, i think i liked 40 Year Old Virgin better.

i just watched that two nights ago. the movie as a whole i thought was pretty good... but whitaker, damn. amazing. that guy is so great.

have you all seen Ghost Dog, the jarmusch movie whitaker is in? great stuff.

i also just watched Suspiria, '70s horror flick by italian dario argento. very surreal and tripped out. i think i liked it. my memories of it are hazy. must have been something i smoked.

and last night, The Claim, a western made by brits from a few years ago. very low key, takes place high up in the sierras, an interior story about a man who can't buy off the sins of his past. not great, but i liked it.

I can see where Rob Zombie got so many of the notions in House of a Thousand Corpses. They're right there in those two movies. The family of wackjobs with the semi functional member who deals with the world, the twisted underground lair...

Dennis Hopper cracks me up through that whole second movie too.

Stranger than Fiction. Pretty good movie IMHO.
agreed. 

I watched I heart Huckabee's yesterday, and that is one of my favorite movies of all time.  I love how it dissects existentialism, and at the same time it some what mocks it.

I was severely let down by it after Three Kings and Flirting with Disaster myself, esp. since Flirting with Disaster  is a modern day comedy classic.

Drop the expectations that were clearly formed by those other movies and watch it again. It is a unique and special film.

Really?  I can't get over how Huckabee's applies philosophy to each character and presents such a deep plot.  I love how it debates the two sub-schools of existentialism (theological versus Nietzsche's theory).

Sure the philosophy stuff was cool, but in terms of a movie with an interesting narrative and believable characters it just didn't cut it for me, although Marky Mark was really good.  I may check it out again at some point. 

I also think the visual of Schwartzman with his pants down may have scarred me for life . . .

i'm with you on this one. that's great that russell is putting existential philosophy in a movie, but if the movie sucks, who cares?
i didn't buy any of it. didn't like it at all.

apparently it was a rather contentious shoot, as well.
perhaps you've all seen the clips that got out a few months ago?
here's one:

moulin rouge needed to relax. that kind of spastic editing drives me crazy after a while. even in the romantic scenes with just two actors, the cutting was non-stop insane. no pacing in the movie at all.

I see the movie itself as a metaphor for how existentialism can deconstruct one's life and cause "inner chaos."  I think that if you view it as you would any other movie, your missing the point of it.  I say watch it again and look deeper into each line and the plot, and see how the philosophy is discussed and yet mocked at the same time.

Just trumped last night's viewing of Unforgiven...

Elem Klimov's "Come And See"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091251/

A mindblowing and disturbingly intense descent into WWII and the German occupation of Belarus.

Seriously the most intense war movie I've ever seen.
ten out of ten...

watched this last night.
absolutely brilliant.
i was blown away.
so intense and surreal, with all of those long, creepy close-ups.
i can't believe i'd never even heard of this movie before.
where has it been hiding?

i'm not sure why it made me think of this, but to you, rowjimmy (and everyone else, for that matter) i recommend, if you haven't already seen it, Cabeza de Vaca, a spanish movie from the early '90s.

thanks for the heads up about Come And See.

Yeah that movie still haunts me now and then... the tracking shots... the close-ups. Even the sound editing; the way it sounds for like the firat day after the attack... I hope you didn't watch it dubbed... If you did, you must rewatch it in the original Russian with subtitles.

They showed Nacho Libre on one of my flights across the Atlantic - it's even weirder without sound.

Watched Knocked Up recently - funny movie, worth watching

also watched half of 11:14 last night - not quite sure what to think of that, seemed like more of a gimmick than a film, but I did only watch half of it, I may have missed something.

i loathe dubbing, watched it with subtitles (plus i understand german, so that helped in some scenes). the sound design of the movie was really great. very subtley done,  eerie and disturbing. i loved how every now and then a low, rising hum would slowly become audible, and right at the point where you consciously realize that THAT's the sound creeping you out, the main character looks up to see it's a plane flying high above.

What would you expect not only from a movie that stars Tom Cruise as a bartender, his co-star is from the F/X movie series and the main title song is performed by the Beach Boys when Jon Stamos (the "Uncle Jesse Years") was in the band but has the "Vermont's a rotten state" lyric in it(I know it doesn't really, but it certainly sounds kinda like what they're singing  :-P).

loved the animation.
loved that it didn't involve a bunch of lame fart jokes and pop culture references.
but the story was pretty bland. i got bored.
i liked the incredibles and iron giant a whole lot better (brad bird made all three).

Kentucky Fried Movie


i love the kentucky fried movie. hilarious. the writers went on to make airplane! and top secret! and so on, and the director, john landis, went on to make animal house, blues brothers, american werewolf, trading places etc.

try watching bruce lee's enter the dragon, then watching the take-off in kentucky fried, a fistful of yen. awesome.

for that matter, try watching airport '75 and then putting on airplane! it's a toss-up as to which is funnier.

Urgh! A Music War

caught a screening of this last night, nice new print of a movie not on dvd.
shot around '79/'80, it features over 30 bands from the new wave era, one song per band (save for the police, who open and close the movie). no filler, just song after song, and really compelling.
i read on wikipedia that it's been shown on VH1 lately, but with various songs cut out and sometimes extra footage thrown in. due to the original rights/contracts/whatever being lost, it'll likely never see a dvd release. (and i just found most of the clips on youtube, of course).

some of the bands:
oingo boingo
the cramps
devo
surf punks
dead kennedys
go gos
steel pulse
gang of four
klaus nomi
wall of voodoo
x
gary numan
joan jett
xtc

and lotsa others... fun to see in a theater. live music is great shot on actual film and edited intelligently...

today was 'to hell with working, i'm seeing some movies' day.

Rescue Dawn, new movie by werner herzog, starring christian bale, based on a true story about a pilot shot down in viet nam in '65. it's very good. a simple, straightforward story, but done very well. herzog is a great director, and it shows. bale is very good, as usual. he ends up looking pretty scrawny (though not as fucked up as in 'the mechanic').

then Sunshine, new danny boyle flick (he did trainspotting and 28 days later among others). hmm... he was definitely trying for a sort of 2001/solaris/alien thing, and basically he failed at all three. some tripped out visuals that were fun, but it's the same old tired complaint about things like this-- how about some characters and a story to give a fuck about? by the end, the most random shit starts happening. i kind of threw up my hands at that point. if nothing makes a lick of sense, why am i supposed to care? because it looks trippy? whatever.

Sandra Bullock.

Then some crap called 'The Land of Women' or something.
It had Meg Ryan, the nerd from The OC, and Olympia Dukakis.

Post by: cactusfan on August 08, 2007, 10:42:27 PM
aw, heck no! manhattan is allen's best, i think, but he was just getting started with the brilliant movies.

stardust memories is a great overlooked one, also shot in glorious black and white. basically his version of a fellini movie, very 8 1/2 like.

the purple rose of cairo is great (and is in fact allen's personal favorite of his movies. he's not in it, maybe that's why).

broadway danny rose is great.

crimes and misdemeanors is the other true masterpiece. just devastating. for some reason he revisited the exact same theme in that tennis movie he just made with scarlet johansson-- um-- match point-- though that movie basically sucked. now why he's making two movies about men who murder inconvenient women and then learn to live with it is something to think about...

husbands and wives is great, with a performance by judy davis that's got to be one of the most amazing ever.

and finally, what i think is his last great movie, bullets over broadway. beautifully written. and he's not in it. that was in '94. everything since then has kind of sucked to one degree or another. he seems to just crank out movies for the sake of cranking them out. oh well. he's done enough. and he's old and nuts.
Title: Re: Last Movie You Watched.
Post by: sls.stormyrider on August 09, 2007, 05:07:47 PM
hmm. guess I forgot a few.

I was never much of a fan of stardust, but I do like the others that you mentioned. a lot.
I guess I was thinking of the few clunkers (shadows and fog, everyone I love you) and forgot the good ones.
I also liked Sweet and Lowdown. Small Time Crooks was funny for the first half, then got a little tired.
I'm also a huge fan of Banannas, Annie Hall, and Sleeper.


I guess what I'm trying to say is ignore my remark about "last great one".

Yeah, very cool "movie" although I thought of it as more of a visual art piece.  I didn't think it was depressing though, I thought it was somewhat uplifting actually.  Most depressing movie still goes to Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, that was disturbing.

You hadn't seen it before?  It's a classic for sure!  Alot of it was filmed across the bay on the eatern shore of MD.  And the woodwind(the boat that belongs to the father, Christopher Walken) hails out of my hometown.

The Bridge- saw this last night on IFC. A documentary where they took actual footage from the cameras at Golden Gate Bridge of people jumping off the bridge commiting suicide. They then find out who those people are and interview there families and loved ones.

Very surreal, but very interesting to hear who these people were and possible reasons why they did what they did.

Apocalypto

Yes Mel Gibson is a douche.

Yes the movie played a bit fast and loose with the facts.  Most notably moving the peak of the Mayan civilization about 500 years into the future to coincide with the arrival of the Spanish.

BUT, the climax in the Mayan city was truly spectacular, unlike anything I've ever seen before.

a few in-jokes--- at the end of the movie we learn that babs has gone on to be a tour guide at universal. in john landis' subsequent movies for universal, at the very end of the credits, an ad would come up for universal studios and the tour, underneath which it read: ask for babs!

we also learn that niedermeyer was killed by his own troops in vietnam. if you watch Twilight Zone: The Movie, landis directed the first part (in which actor vic morrow was killed during filming by a helicopter decapitating him), and there's a scene in vietnam that begins with some guys marching through the jungle and one says to the others:  I told you we shouldn't have killed sgt. niedermeyer!

Never knew any of that stuff, that's awesome that Landis would do that.  Also the entire movie was filmed in Eugene, OR because they were the only campus that would let them and after filming had wrapped said they would never again allow another movie to be filmed there.  I've been to Eugene a few times and although the actual frat house has been torn down many of the other buildings are still there.  Coming from a small place were NOTHING EVER HAPPENS and it just slightly to the lower left of nowhere it was kind of neat seeing those places in real life. I gonna have to watch it again tonight.

Sounds like (but worse than) what I thought when I saw Attack of the Clones (Star Wars ep2) for the first time.... It seemed like they spent a lot of time on sequences that would make great cut-scenes for the video game. everything else... like the acting, came second.

An hour and a half of chicks sitting around talking about nothing, and twenty minutes of action, WTF?!!!

tell me about it. what a piece of shit. not only is it 45 minutes of chicks bullshitting (in what sounds like someone spoofing 'tarantino-talk' it's so bad), but the four chicks you've just spent like 25 minutes with all die! then four totally interchangeable chicks show up (and seriously, it took my five minutes to realize these were four different ones) and they yammer on and on!

which is to say, even if you LIKED the first half of babbling chicks-- they all die! and a new movie starts.

the first movie of Grindhouse, the rodriguez zombie flick, kicks ass. whenever that hits video, it's the one to see. he actually understands that a trashy grindhouse movie is about absurd, non-stop, balls to the wall ZOMBIE EXPLODING ACTION!

Seconds.
brilliant.
from '66, directed by john frankenheimer, who a few years earlier made The Manchurian Candidate (also a great movie, unlike the craptacular remake).
it's one of the most deeply disturbing movies i've ever seen. not in a gory way, in a psychological way. it's shot very eerily, too. it's just totally unnerving, and it pulls no punches.
about a middle aged man given a chance at a new life.
sort of. i will say no more.
highly recommended if you like weird, freaky movies.

Watched several movies over the last few days due to traveling and bad weather.

Pump up the Volume - great old Christian Slater film. I remember seeing this in college. Great soundtrack.
I'll be home for Christmas. meh. At least it had a young Jessica Biel in it. took me a while to figure out who she was.
Chill Out Scooby Doo - the new 'doo is actually pretty good. This one didn't have phish tunes in it though like the loch ness monster one did. :phish:
Fight Club. can you believe i'd never seen this movie? great flick, total mindf*ck. not as screwy as 12 monkeys, but a good movie nonetheless.

took the day off and drove to DC yesterday to watch Blade Runner: Final Cut at the Uptown theater (biggest screen EVAR).  it looked amazing.  very little in the way of added stuff, just some extended scenes that help suck you into that world (plus you actually see Roy's thumbs poke out Tyrell's eyes).  but they totally remastered the picture and audio.  It was awesome.

"Breach," recent spy flick with Ryan Philippe, Laura Linney (great) and Chris Cooper (also great). Good work from all three, but a good--not great--movie.

PS jephrey: "eunuchs"? I don't know--I only saw part of Ice Pirates, like 20 years ago. Now I want Netflix.

time bandits. OMFG what a great movie. Mom! Dad! Don't touch it! It's EEEEEEEEEEvil!


Don't leave any, get all of it.  That's pure, concentrated, evil!

I love that part.  Great movie.  Saw that on an old Laser Disc player, before Erols had VHS and Beta.

Yes, and it wasn't digital.  The disc looked like a big, shiny, vinyl.

Time Bandits,  M.P's the Holy Grail, and Under the Rainbow were the first movies I saw, using that media format.  I was in Middle School at the time.  Man that takes me back...

And see Under the Rainbow if you can.  Funny movie, and it has little people.

Both of those movies are great entertainment.
Time Bandits has more potential to provoke thought (though thinking is not req'd) but both movies are kickass romps!

laser discs were digital. what else could they possibly be? they were the first way to actually get movies letterboxed. i remember in the '80s renting movies from the '70s on VHS and tripping out on what looked like these very weird, mechanical pans they always used. i thought it was a stylistic choice. only later did i understand that widescreen movies on VHS were cropped in the 'pan and scan' method, losing a third of the picture. i can't watch movies that way anymore. it actually hurts my brain to see the frame cut and cramped that way.

Time Bandits is brilliant. how it gets mentioned along with Ice Pirates is beyond me. that may be good trash, but Time Bandits is Gilliam's best movie! well, along with Brazil, anyway. michael palin co-wrote Time Bandits,  by the way.

Under The Rainbow. wow. i forgot that existed. it's not on DVD, is it? it was a huge bomb when it opened. chevy chase and the little people, oh man...

the leathal grass scene was pretty hot.
they said that overhead shot was supposed to somewhat resemble the loge from the series.

yeah... maybe i'm just bored today, but i dunno... i was a fan of the original liquid TV series, and ok so maybe i have the hots for charlize anyway, but regardless it wasnt BAD in the slightest bit, IMO.
in fact it was just weird enough, like the original, to keep me hooked the whole movie.
nothing mindblowing here, but definitely not  a waste of time... or maybe a good waste of time, depending on how you look at it.

why did you guys like the ending? what did the movie mean to you?

i thought it didn't work at all. who was i supposed to care about? anyone? i sure didn't care about tommy lee jones. i just about fell asleep during the dream scene with his dad and the following scene where he tells us about the dream.

i love watching coen bros movie for the moviemaking, always top notch, and for a lot of this one i was enjoying it, but it just fell apart for me at the end. i read the book awhile ago, and it did the same thing. they were certainly loyal to the book, a practice endlessly mysterious to me.

I think it all comes down to a few points...

a) The ironic words of the Deputy at the beginning of the film, "I got it under control" (he so totally didn't)

b) The discussion between Tommy Lee Jones and the Sheriff in El Paso about the tide and TLJ's line about how crime of the present (1980) is hard to measure. It's so off the traditional scale. This and the ending sequence go back to the title of the film.

c) I was especially enamored with the reveal that Moss' wife, while simple, was no dummy.

d) Javier Bardeem was amazing to watch.

The Fountain is his only other movie. pretty visuals, but disappointing after pi and requiem.

for a movie somewhat in the realm of Pi, try Primer, a super low budget sort of sci-fi movie. it never really makes sense, but it's very compelling viewing.

I guess the surprise is how far off from the book the ending really is.  In the book it goes completely the opposite direction.  Also set in San Diego rather than New York.

I Am Legend - Awesome, although wayy more intense then I expected/desired
Juno - Funny movie, nothing to write home about, good characters and a some very funny moments
National Treasure II - great combination of fact and fiction, just as good as the first one, so if you liked the first I would highly recommend it.

well now, what on earth did you make of it? this is one seriously surreal, weird-ass movie for those not familiar with it. i wouldn't say 'good,' but it sure makes for interesting viewing, especially if one has smoked enough in advance.

i watched The Lives Of Others, german, won the oscar for best foreign flick last year. really good. about a guy working for the stasi in east berlin in '84, who comes to realize the inhumanity of spying on his fellow citizens.

also, the new Futurama movie, Bender's Big Score. basically the same as the old episodes, pretty funny stuff. best part is one of the extras, a full-length episode of Everybody Loves Hypnotoad. awesome. i dare someone to watch the whole thing, as i did. then again, it's so hypnotic, maybe i should dare someone NOT to watch the whole thing...

Sweeny Todd

It was excellent. Depp was good (not the greatest voice for the role but he was good.) Helena Bonham Carter's voice was weaker than Depp's. I wish that it weren't because she had the character nailed but really didn't deliver the songs as well as a fan of the show would hope.

Yes, I've been a fan of Sweeny Todd since I was a kid. My mom turned me on to the twisted story and, in turn, I took her to see the film today for her birthday.

There Will Be Blood.

yet another overhyped 'masterpiece.'
paul thomas anderson seems to have this knack for mimicing all the appearances of a great movie: nice shots, great actors giving big performances, good soundtrack (by johnny greenwood), a feeling of gravitas to everything, long running times... yet there's no there there. there's no movie. daniel day lewis embodies this hateful character very well as always, but the character does the same thing in every scene for almost three hours. nothing changes. nothing really happens, either. there's no dramatic build, nothing that happens in one scene really affects what happens later. you could almost shuffle the scenes randomly and not change anything, aside from the progress of the oil well. and the final scene, well, whatever. it makes no sense at all, other than to say, no, REALLY, this guy is TOTALLY a bastard. okay, i get it. jesus.

i want my three hours back.

yes.
The bonus disc was interesting. Usual stuff - background stories on making the movie, mostly from Dick Lester and a little from Neil Aspinall. Some trivia-noteably Mal Evans (the road manager) was the swimmer looking for the White Cliffs of Dover. There was a scene that was cut. They don't show the scene; I suspect it doesn't exist anymore, but told the story. There was also a bit about the restoration of the movie.

I don't think the bonus disc is must have stuff. I'm not sure if the re-release is better quality video or not, though.

I've got it.
watched it multiple times.

sound is kinda shitty... but i enjoy that movie a lot, so the first few times through i didn't notice...

to me, it sounds like whomever remastered this really didn't have a full grasp on what they're doing.
there was one time i got pissed, and maybe i just got the glitched one...
but my sound dropped out for a split second.... if you're not an avid fan, you'd have not noticed.
but it's in dual layer format.. which i think might trigger a slight pause IIRC.....

the second disc is kinda fun on here... just people talking about memories about that time in the Beatles career...
Sid Bernstein talking about Carnegie hall and Shea stadium... Klaus voorman memories... one of their tailors laughing about a special fitting of the outfits from Hard Day's night... Martin's song by song of the soundtrack...lester and marton talking about production/direction of it... and i think a few other things...

now that i'm talking about it, mom wants to watch it... so i guess that'sw getting put in next....  :-)

^^^He most surely has. eXistenZ, anyone? What is it with Cronenberg and buttholes? And yes--Ang Lee's Hulk movie is better than any of the six Spidey/X-Men films. While between them, those had some truly kick-ass fight scenes, Hulk has intelligence not present in the others. I haven't seen the new Superman, so I'll reserve judgement.

I actually thought the new Superman was OK, but I was referring to the Christopher Reeve Superman, as Superman II will always be one of my favorite comic book films.

btw saw the trailer for Dark Knight yesterday and it looks seriously kick ace, not Hulk good of course, but close.   :wink:

Sweeny Todd

It was excellent. Depp was good (not the greatest voice for the role but he was good.) Helena Bonham Carter's voice was weaker than Depp's. I wish that it weren't because she had the character nailed but really didn't deliver the songs as well as a fan of the show would hope.

Yes, I've been a fan of Sweeny Todd since I was a kid. My mom turned me on to the twisted story and, in turn, I took her to see the film today for her birthday.


I will agree on Burton's drought of original ideas. Here, the 'look' was fairly predetermined but there were times when I thought Edward Scissorhands was onscreen.

thanks for posting that RJ, that trailer is sick.  I think the original is a great movie and after Shumacher destroyed the franchise the Batman Begins reset was such a breath of fresh air.  I try not to compare since there's such a time gap between it and Burton's original.  I'm not a comic buff but I know that all the series have all sorts of different story lines that sometimes contradict each other.

and I love how the new Joker looks like a filthy mental case.

Nicholson was a good Joker but he played it to the comic side.
It's the dark Joker that I like most and i think that's the goal in this film.

As for Sweeny Todd, go see it if you already like the story and music. Drag someone with you if need be.

watched the first movie by Michael Cimino, early '70s, called Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, with clint eastwood and jeff bridges. decent, not great. very of its time, and i love '70s movies. about two guys who meet randomly in montana and rob a bank. with an ending taken right out of Midnight Cowboy. movies were so damn ambiguous and/or depressing in the '70s. i love it!

Cimino next went on to make the brilliant Deer Hunter, which if you haven't seen, you really should. up there with Apocalypse Now as the best movie dealing with the vietnam war.

then he made Heaven's Gate, one of the most notorious flops in hollywood history. in fact, it pretty much put the stake in the heart of the '70s cinema i love, and brought on the nightmare of the '80s.

Those are both great films, and I know lots of vets who agree, but my old man and most of his Vietnam buddies all say Platoon is the best film about the war itself.

werd, but I thought it was way funnier than Talladega Nights which only had a couple of chuckles most of which were courtesy of Sascha Baron Cohen.

I thought the first two were alright, nothing great, but enough to keep me entertained.  The only thing that has always bothered me about them is that they're movies based on a theme park ride.  Now I have no issue with a theme park basing a ride on a movie, but the other way around I think is a little bizarre.

I preferred the Haunted Mansion.


That movie was a piece of garbage.  As far as the rides are concerned it's a tie as to which one I like better.

Too true. that movie was so completely forgettable that I forgot about it.

Remember when Eddie Murphy did good movies that didn't feature Mike Meyers as a big green dude?
Me neither.

you mean The Golden Child?


i believe he was referring to GOOD movies. so, ummm.... Trading Places, for example.

Billy Bragg & Wilco - Man in the Sand (The Making of "Mermaid Avenue")
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51AMRADSAHL._SS500_.jpg)

Cool but paid short-shrift to Wilco and completely disregards the fact that Woody Guthrie himself invited Bob Dylan to work with the un-recorded lyrics some thirty+ years earlier.

Cloverfield.

the friend i saw it with described it as '9/11 porn.'
hard to disagree.
lots of people running and screaming as new york is demolished.
the monster is kind of cool, yet not very memorable.
godzilla may have looked infinitely cheezier way back in the day, but at least he had personality.

other major problem as that all of the characters are white, 20-something yuppie pricks you hate.
well, that and story is really dumb.

Just got back, and I kinda liked it... It was nothing like any other monster movies, and while the plot was nothing special, that sort of added to the experience.  Life isn't like a movie, and they tried to make a completely unrealistic event true to the way people act without hollywood dramatization, and I thought they did a good job at that.  I don't know if anyone knows this but after the loooonnnnng-ass credits there is a backwards audio clip that says something to the effect of: 'It's still alive'.  Sequel?  I don't know how I feel about that...but it does have a sick ass monster:

First I watched "No Country for Old Men" which might be one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time.  Also watched "I am Legend" and it was alright, was super pissed about what happened to Sam however.  I hate that sort of thing, I'm a big softy and that really bothered me, although right from the get go I knew that it was going to happen and I just waiting for it.  Not to ruin it for anyone else, but that's why my wife told me never to watch a movie were the one of the main characters is an animal, because that's what always happens.  :cry:

an '80s documentary on jazz great Chet Baker. in b&w. beautifully shot. very cool doc, so unlike today's typical vh1 style music docs. lots of old footage, old recordings, and current interviews with chet and others (all made a year before he died). it was a new print at a theater... apparently it's not on dvd. so although i recommend it highly, not sure how anyone's going to see it. maybe it's floating around on vhs out there...

i just rented The Dead Zone. watched it for the first time since it came out way back in the '80s. cronenberg's first foray into hollywood movie making. it's got a nice look to it, and christopher walken is good as always. but man is there a lot of bad and/or banal dialogue.

plus the morality of the ending is for one thing never really dealt with, and then not having dealt with it, they create this absurd 'have your cake and eat it too' ending that kind of pissed me off. this is a movie that could be re-thought (sorry, stephen king) and re-made into something really fascinating and thought provoking. not that it ever will...

God damn

Never has a mainstream video turned me on like that. Not that I'm even that much into S&M. But that scene with her masturbating to thoughts of Mr Grey ... I had to pause it a few times and leave the room to re-compose myself.

whew. time for a cold shower.

I can take solace in the fact that she's too young for me....

The Business of Being Born (http://www.thebusinessofbeingborn.com/)
Saw it today with my wife. We've already decided to have a home birth this time around but, if we hadn't, that film would have convinced us. It's a documentary on the state of birthing in our country and how, through the influence of the big-business of Health Care and the misguided notion that technology can improve everything, the US has the highest infant mortality and cesarean rates in the developed world.

Excellent film.

I agree 100%...FWIW, we had a homebirth, and it was a great experience.  I can't even imagine another way.  It's so much better in every aspect, provided your pregnancy is progressing smoothly.  It's only been in the last century that births started taking place in a hospital with doctors.  My wife was a homebirth, and her brother, and when I first heard that (7 years ago) I thought that was crazy.  Since then, as I learned more about, it was the obvious choice for us, but maybe not for everyone.  Some women believe they need pain drugs, and some people feel more comfortable in a hospital setting.  We don't feel comfortable in hospital settings, so it was never a consideration that we would have our baby in one.  My co-workers and some of my family thought homebirth was nuts too, but once you read about it and see the statistics, it makes so much sense....sorry to hijack the movie thread....off to watch one now "Once"

Supermodels are beautiful girls, Will. A beautiful girl can make you dizzy, like you've been drinking Jack and Coke all morning. She can make you feel high full of the single greatest commodity known to man - promise. Promise of a better day. Promise of a greater hope. Promise of a new tomorrow. This particular aura can be found in the gait of a beautiful girl. In her smile, in her soul, the way she makes every rotten little thing about life seem like it's going to be okay. The supermodels, Willy? That's all they are. Bottled promise. Scenes from a brand new day. Hope dancing in stiletto heels.

I think you guys are forgetting a couple things... musicals always suck - they're always over-the-top and not too subtle.

My Mom said Across The Universe reminded her of the 60s.  I thought it was like "The Beatles For Dummies", I watched it in 15-20 minute chunks while falling asleep... went from hating it to liking it and back to hating it, pretty sure I slept thru most of the second half.

Watched Oceans 12 and Under Siege last night.   :-D  I enjoyed Oceans 12.  It wasn't as clever as the first, but still worth renting, IMO.  As for Under Siege, I have seen this one a few times already, but am a sucker for bad Steven Segal 90's Action movies when I'm bored.   :-D  Good Stuff.

It's ok. You see the "fall from grace" that happened to Gator. Basically, as his ego grew larger and larger, skating changed and his star fell. Then his girlfriend dumped him, and he murdered her best friend.

I think a more interesting movie would be about Christian Hosoi. Kind of the same deal except i think he got busted for smuggling heroin or some shit from Hawaii. He just got out of jail a year or so ago i think.

Super Troopers is in my all-time top five. My little sis had me watch it a few years back and I couldn't stop laughing for days. I may be a little prejudiced being a Vermonter and connaisseur of the herb... but that movie is choice. "Club Dread" was such a disappointment afterwards.

Scarlet J. was also in "The Horse Whisperer" as a child, which was a truly awful, syrupy crap-fest with a strong cast.

Its a tie between Spinal Tap and Best in Show for me.  Some of the "philosophical" musings by Nigel (Christopher Guest) are pure comic genius, and I always lose it with the "solo guitar scene" of Nigel.  The "shredding" and the outfit kill me.

some recent netflix viewings:

Across The Universe. not bad. i liked it more than i thought i would. the look of the movie is great. and i liked a lot of the songs, they definitely created unique versions. some didn't work at all, but more worked than didn't. it was too long. and whatever 'story' was there didn't make much sense or matter at all. but whatever. eddie izzard cracked me up.

Manufactured Landscapes. docu about a photographer taking photos of industrial landscapes i.e. wastelands, all in china. beautiful imagery, and appalling at the same time. movie-wise, it's not great, just kind of follows this guy around, but his photos are really stunning.

O Lucky Man!  from the early '70s, malcolm mcdowell in a surreal alegory about capitalism gone bad. considered a sort of sequel to the director's (lindsay anderson) If, also with mcdowell. this one is better, though a lot longer (almost 3 hours). also contains musical interludes. weird movie. oh ya, also features a young and very hot helen mirren.

Last night watched Bittersweet Motel and Shoot Em' Up.

Havent watched Bittersweet Motel in years. Enjoyed it, but i still think it is way too Trey heavy. But nice to look back. The scene in the shop with Trey bartering for the gun is classic. "11,000 mutherfucker!"

Shoot Em Up' sucks! Clive Owen should be ashamed. But Monica Belluci is a piece o' ass.

I saw that new movie '21' last night.
It was just ok. It wasn't quite thrilling/dramatic casino film and wasn't really entertaining like oceans 11 or something. It kind of lacked something.
The main kid in it (he was also in across the universe) was good and totally adorable  :wink: Kevin Spacey played a creeper
Kate Bosworth was sort of severe and frightening looking (I don't know why chicks think getting your lips pumped full of collagen is a good look) and my mom and I both thought it was absolutely ridiculous that we were to believe she supposedly 21.
Anyway, they used MGMT in the opening which was cool. But overall it was just kind of eh.

I Am Legend...I enjoyed it...didn't know what to expect...for me it was very much in the vein of War of the Worlds and Signs...where the movie is enjoyable, but the ending is rather abrupt and ties things up a little too nicely.

The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico...check it out...I thought it was great.  I knew nothing about it and still didn't know half way through if this guy was for real or not...but stories of hard living musicians are always good for the late night movie.

the two i like best are from the late '60s, Hour of The Wolf, very surreal, and Shame, about how war affects a married couple. Shame also stars the incomparably beautiful (and brilliant) liv ullman. pretty much everything bergman made after Seventh Seal features maybe four actors, usually on an otherwise deserted swedish isle, dealing with relationships gone awry/god's silence/madness. Hour of The Wolf plunges into some weird dream imagery. Shame actually features many actors and a mysterious, never explained war. not exactly cheerful movies, but very powerful.

"Into the Blue"?

I didn't really watch it--I was waiting for South Park to come on last night. But this mess appeared to be some sort of "Miami Vice"-throwback quasi-erotic thriller centering on the deep love between a bikini bottom and Jessica Alba's ass-crack.


Little Miss Sunshine, Hilarious. 

I liked the grandpa in this movie the best.
The scene at the convenience store with Alan Arkin & Steve Carrell is priceless.

I'm kind of nirvana geek so i had to catch this...it had some really great photography/cinematography of WA state and some good kurt sound bites, but that was about it: scenes of WA with music and some kurt interviews over it.
it had its moments, but its hard to focus on.

gotta love on-demand entertainment in BA's business class...  saw several movies on the long-hauls i was just on, best of which were:

No Country for Old Men:  just some amazing performances, very well written, shot & edited...  i can see why the Coen Brothers did so well at the Oscars.

There Will Be Blood:  Daniel Day-Lewis easily deserved the Best Actor nod for this.  long movie, but some great drama.

I Am Legend:  it was OK, nothing special.  wasn't sure exactly what to expect.  Will Smith put in a great performance, as always.

Juno:  brilliantly written, and even more brilliantly acted by Ellen Page.  one of the best feel-good/coming-of-age movies i've ever seen, with some biting humor.  plus, Rainn Wilson was hilarious.

Manda Bala- a documentary on how dangerous the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil is and how corrupt the Brazilian government is. Its ok, kind of drags at points, but beautiful country that is fucked up! Kind of makes you appreciate how not as fucked up the USA is, or just fucked up in a different way. Soundtrack is really good, lots of Jorge Ben, Tom Ze, and Tim Maia.

Charlie Wilson's War: Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman (again)- great movie.  entertaining and interesting
We OWn The Night:  Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg- decent, not great, gritty crime drama....worth a rental
There Will Be Blood:  I want to like it, but did I miss something? DD Lewis is awesome, andn it is shot well (not amazing though), and I want to say, yeah, it was incredible, but I think I'm missing something.  Still, a must see.

i really liked it.
and in the special features when it shows the older woman singing "let it be" i lost it.

Yeah I think it was just an overall metaphor for how certain things in Clayton's life, such as family and creativity or maybe even just doing things for enjoyment, had fallen by the wayside in his life.  Since he didn't read the book he missed out on yet another opportunity to bond with his son, which is highlighted by the fact that Arthur and the kid do connect when discussing the book.  Ironically the image from the book gets him out of the car, which we could see as a symbol for ambition or even being on "cruise control" and not fully being engaged with his surroundings, and literally saves his life.

i'm not sure why i did this to myself, but i just watched The Mist, based on what was actually a pretty good stephen king story, made by frank darabont who made the decent king adaptation Shawshank Redemption as well as the mind-numbingly long and awful Green Mile.

the Mist may be the worst horror movie ever made, which is saying a lot. incredibly boring, incredibly stupid. the one bright spot was the last ten minutes, which just about had me on the floor i was laughing so hard.

I watched the first one randomly on TNT with zero expectations, but ended up being happy.  It was an enjoyable movie, but yes, ultimately very cheesy.  I have been wanting to check out the next one.

i saw iron man last night.
i was really cool, though not as good as some of my friends hyped it up to be.
very solid for the most part though.

the preview for the batman movie this summer looked tight.

American Movie

pretty f'ing funny.

"I was called to the bathroom at the cemetery to take care of something. I walked in the bathroom, and in the middle toilet right there... somebody didn't shit in the toilet, somebody shat on the toilet. They shat on the wall, they shat on the floor. I had to clean it up, man, but before that, for about 10 to 15 seconds man, I just stared at somebody's shit, man. To be totally honest with you, man, it was a really, really profound moment. Cuz I was thinkin', "I'm 30 years old, and in about 10 seconds I gotta start cleaning up somebody's shit, man."

I've been watching The Tripper over the past couple nights.  With the kids, it's tough to make it all the way through a movie in one sitting, especially if it's a horror movie, since we can't watch it with them around.  This one's a horror/comedy made by David Arquette.  It was pretty stupid, but pretty funny, too.

And there was a Phish reference in there, too!

I loved Shaun of the Dead so much I ran out and got Hot Fuzz which was made by the same guys.  fucking crazy.  It's basically a send-up of every action movie ever made, but in doing so it's a fantastic action film itself--and it's hilarious of course.  They mock everything from the Bad Boys movies to the Die Hards all the way down to Point Break & Striking Distance (anyone remember that one?)  This writing team (Simon Pegg & Edgar Wright) have one more film in the pipeline and I can't wait..

i admit i am perhaps a bitter and curmudgeonly old man, but i'll never be as sad and old as harrison ford.

i saw Indy J and The Something of Whatever, and oh god was it a tired and lifeless mess. what happened to harrison? i guess i've made a point of not seeing all his horrible movies the past ten years and i kind of forgot that he gave up acting back in the '80s. it really shows. at first all i could think about was how old he was, and maybe that was it, but then i looked at john hurt in the movie, a real actor, and he was great. so no, it's just that ford doesn't give a shit. and poor karen allen. yikes. she retired from acting long ago and boy does it show.

it was all so jokey and dumb. dialogue by the worst writer in hollywood, david koepp, spielberg's go-to guy for generic blockbuster scripts. ugh.

as much humor was in Raiders, there was still actual emotion, actual fear and menace and danger. in this one it's all played for limp jokes. aliens? seriously?

there was one nice bit with a nuclear test. and some wacky action antics. and basically it just made me sad for all involved.   :cry:

It was overly digitized and too much about special effects, not enough story or character/relationship development
And the alien thing....really? So cactus, I couldn't agree with you more.

What's the deal with this new generation of horror movies (Saw, Hostile, etc.) where it's just people getting terrorized/brutalized, how is that entertainment?  At least old school horror like Nightmare on Elm Street had a sense of humor and was imaginative.  I suppose it's just another sign of our culture gradually sliding into a cesspool.   :|

What I don't get is that all of his movies flop, but the studios just keep giving him major dough to make another one.....maybe they make money, but I hear they are painful to watch.  I hear he is a great director to work for though.  My buddy worked on The Happening, and while shooting, they had a drawing every Friday for some sweet prizes.  My buddy won a 2 week trip to France, with airfare....that's dope.

he is hilariously awful. what was the movie with the aquatic chick in the swimming pool? where he cast himself as a writer who is told he will write something so grand it will bring about world peace? riiiiight....


i watched The Asphalt Jungle last night, old john huston movie with the always awesome sterling hayden (see Dr. Strangelove for his greatest performance). pretty good for a '50s heist flick. kind of a drag how back in those days criminals always have to get caught or killed, though. shot beautifully.

Terrible movie.  But any movie that has Elisha Cuthbert 1/2 naked gets the automatic 3 out of 5 stars from me.

strangely enough i really got into SITH more than before this time and decided i didnt hate the acting at all like i thought i did before.

-clones still bugged me some, and of course the first one does, but i think SIth they corrected some of the direction, maybe the writing,  and the actors matured more. all together that movie kicked some serious butt!

So I've got a Netflix-style service, and I've been ripping 'em down to MP4 then watching later... Here's what I've watched recently:

Harlem Globetrotters: The Team That Changed The World
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0482610/
- killer doc, narrated by Chuck D, discusses the cultural significance of the Trotters, and Barack Obama is in it for like 10 minutes!

Invasion U.S.A.
- terrible Chuck Norris film, Chuck saves the USA with a couple of uzi's, awesome.

Playing For Change
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0383576/
- wonderful film which follows a ton of street musicians across the US, the filmmakers also recorded a song with several of them, goodstuff.

VH1 Classic Albums: Cream - Disraeli Gears
- sick footage of Clapton, I could watch every "Classic Album"

Gotta Serve Somebody - The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1247664/
- 20+ years after Slow Train Coming and Saved, this doc explores the songs of those 2 albums and features prominent contemporary gospel artists recording an album with Dylan gospel tunes.

This is from 2003, it's only American street performers.  Pretty much the same style and feel to the film though, you'd like it.  I'm guessing they did this one then realized they could go around the world doing it too.  The Italian guitarist from NOLA is in this one as well, he's awesome.

I actually wasn't a big fan of this one.  I guess because it was really more of a character study than a plot driven movie.  Granted the acting was fantastic, but I felt like that movie had been made 100 different times.  I'd post the generic plot summary but don't want to give away any spoilers.

I guess my point is, great for the acting, but you've already seen this movie even if you haven't watched it yet.

Anyone disagree that Heath Ledger will win Best Actor Oscar for his Joker?



well...if there were any competition in films these days i might.
but its the oscars so who the f knows what they'll do...in other words, whatves.

though, IMO, i think his portrayal was excellent and classic indeed... it wasnt like the best acting ive ever seen or anything. IMO some peeps are really over-gushing praise on this one.
dont get me wrong, he rocked it all the way, but as far as best actors go, i have seen better in my time.
but probably not this year, right?!  :-)



so, i guess my answer is no i dont think he'll get it. just cause the oscars suck, not because he wont be the best of the year, or not because he doesnt deserve it in the first place.

INCREDIBLE!!!! I'm so glad I went at midnight.  I heard some interesting things about Ledger getting into the Joker character today, that he locked himself in a hotel room for a month and began a journal with "the joker's thoughts".  If that's true it would not surprise me at all if they release that or put it on display.  :evil:

all of these are highly recommended if you've not seen 'em...
We just got Being There from Netflix last week.  Haven't watched it yet, but I've heard it's very good.

Being There rules, and little unknown (maybe not) fact is that Being There is where Phish got the idea to do the funk 2001...check it out, it's a great version, and an all-time classic scene.....

yep, the way they use the funk 2001 in the movie is just perfect.

also love the scene in the limo cut with the animated video of the song Basketball Jones.


so really... no love for Shampoo? warren beatty and lots of beautiful women, written by Robert Towne of Chinatown fame, funny and subversively political with a very '70s downer ending. i love it!

I don't remember the story - I do remember LOTS of sex, including beatty's character getting head at a dinner party.

maybe I should rent that one too.

Nice double feature last night - Once and Almost Famous. Both are good flicks. I hadn't seen Once (the lead singer from the Frames is in it) but i had heard the soundtrack, and Almost Famous has such a great soundtrack and cast that it's fun to watch.

Quest for Festeroo

had some worthy lines/scenes.
worth a watch if you got the time or it's around.
les claypool wrote the whole thing and he's got some interesting viewpoints on the jam scene, tapers/engineers/fans/bands, and the recording process.

Watched it last weekend as well, more chuckle-worthy than pee your pants funny, you can tell Les and crew had a lot of fun making it though.

My favorite part was Seth Green and Matt Stone as the tapers, "But this mic is better, it's the 4B."

Two Lane Blacktop, monte hellman's car racing movie from the early '70s. with james taylor as the driver who barely says anything. in fact, no one says much of anything in the movie, aside from the always great warren oates playing a very insecure character who bullshits all the time.

very '70s, lots of silence, open spaces, and a surprising, ambiguous ending that just sort of happens all of a sudden.

not genius or anything, but i liked it.

Just got back from Clone Wars, and IMHO it was totally not worth the money I spent to see it in a theater.  The action was pretty badass, but the story was kinda weak and dialog was some of the worst garbage I've ever heard.  A character in the movie refers of Anakin as Sky Guy.   :frustrated:  It's Star Wars so it was something that I had to see and I'm sure that others here are going to feel the same way, just wait until it's released on DVD or when the series starts on whatever network that it's going to be on.

Fair enough, but the thought of that many people putting in that many hours you would think that they could have come up with something that was a little better.

The 'skyguy' bit was obnoxious but limited.
The dialogue was better than the prequel films with a couple exceptions. The silly droid banter was a bit much but still fun.

So instead I just watched "The Happening"

OK, so I'll pretty watch anything with Zooey Deschanel these days, and I really didn't expect this M. Night movie to be any good... and it wasn't.

Here's my thing with M. Night, if any of his movies were a Director's first film you would think... wow, great film - I can't wait to see what he does next...  And then he makes the same movie over and over again, and again.  and again.

As an aside, I actually haven't seen Lady In The Water, but I did like the twist in The Village.

i just watched West Side Story for the first time last night. i generally don't get into musicals, but it's pretty great. as long as you can get past a couple of gangs singing and dancing. would be good for your class. and though it's a bit racey, there's All That Jazz. but if you already showed the R rated Blues Brothers, maybe that's cool. and you really have to show Singin' In The Rain, since it's the best musical of all time.

Sure, sure but since all of the characters are engaged in war then it becomes a chicken or the egg debate.  Are they crazy because they are in the middle of a war, or was the insanity always there and was it the root cause of war in the first place?

When Platoon came out I was working in a movie theater and I saw it a lot.  A great movie to be sure.  Not long after that Full Metal Jacket came out and when I saw it I thought it blew Platoon away.  Don't get me wrong though... I still love Platoon.  8-)

Apocolypse Now is based on the book "Heart of Darkness" which focuses on the themes of the absurdity of evil, the hypocrasy of Imperialism, and the madness as a result of imperialism.   Kurtz from the novel deals with Imperialism; Kurtz from the movie deals with the US involvement in the war.

The movie uses the setting of the war to illustrate these themes, so it's not the chicken or the egg, it's just a avenue to illustrate these ideas.
Sheen's character is not "involved in the war" as his mission is to get Kurtz.  Involvment in the war along the way is another symbol of the movie.
In the novel, the Congo river is the symbol of the white man's ability to get into Africa and not be a part of the what is going on around him.  The same goes for Sheen's character who uses the river to get to places he should not be, allowing him to do so without be part of the war around him.  The struggles on the river in both the movie and the novel symbolize the struggle the main character is having with understanding Kurtz.

edit: It is still a mind blowing movie...

The movie uses the setting of the war to illustrate these themes, so it's not the chicken or the egg, it's just a avenue to illustrate these ideas.
Sheen's character is not "involved in the war" as his mission is to get Kurtz.  Involvment in the war along the way is another symbol of the movie.
In the novel, the Congo river is the symbol of the white man's ability to get into Africa and not be a part of the what is going on around him.  The same goes for Sheen's character who uses the river to get to places he should not be, allowing him to do so without be part of the war around him.  The struggles on the river in both the movie and the novel symbolize the struggle the main character is having with understanding Kurtz.

edit: It is still a mind blowing movie...



Thanks for the literature lesson, but the movie only takes the bare bones plot from the book so I think we can analyze the film on its own.

Probably the best and most accurate depiction of the Vietnam War.  Great movie.

most accurate? for all i know. best? hell no! try watching Apocalypse Now. or Full Metal Jacket.

Apocalypse Now is less about Nam and more about a complete psychopath and the man sent to kill him.  Full Metal Jacket is awesome...  no doubt about it.

Indeed Apocalypse Now just happens to be set in Nam, it's more about war and the madness it causes in general. 


It's bigger than that. It's not just about the madness of war, it's about the madness of man.

Sure, sure but since all of the characters are engaged in war then it becomes a chicken or the egg debate.  Are they crazy because they are in the middle of a war, or was the insanity always there and was it the root cause of war in the first place?

In that case, I would still argue that the movie is not about Vietnam and the struggles of war, but more of the struggles of Colonel Kurtz and his disagreement of the U.S. government and their ways.  Kurtz is doing the things he is doing because of his disillusionment of the government.  He doesn't believe the government is being effective and he has taken matters into his own hands.

Regardless of how much of the novel was used for the movie, it's the themes and symbolism that are the same.  By analyzing the themes of the movie you have also analyzed the themes of the novel.

It's not disillusionment with the government. Its the derangement of power.
It's the savage within unleashed and the greater savage rising to the top.
The journey upriver is a trip deeper into the madness and savagery of man but notice that Copolla makes a point of showing that, back in the world, things aren't quite sane. They're just constrained by regulations.

you're all forgetting when the movie was made. the vietnam war had just ended. it had been an incredibly pervasive presence for years and years. the movie doesn't just 'happen' to be set in vietnam for convenience sake. it channels the madness and anger and cultural impact of that war. how could it not?

while it may primarily be about the madness of man, it works in a brilliant way to create the feeling of that war. obviously it doesn't attempt to literally 'depict' exactly how it went down. coppola had no interest in that. but did van gogh have an interest in 'literally' showing what a starry night looked like? no. that's not what art does. van gogh painted in a way totally 'unreal' but in a way that gets at the heart of what he's depicting far more effectively, more emotionally, than someone who painted in a 'real' way.

so it is with apocalypse. the other movies mentioned do indeed give you a better sense of exactly 'what people did' and 'how people did those things' when they were actually fighting that war. but in terms of communicating the emotional and cultural resonances of the war and the people fighting it, apocalypse is far superior.

full metal jacket faced much of the same criticism, that it wasn't 'real', that it didn't really happen like that. especially since it came out about six months after the hyper-'real' Platoon. but again, full metal jacket is brilliant in communicating the hopeless madness pervasive in that conflict. or, as kubrick would certainly want you to extrapolate, in any such conflict. it's just a bunch of little kids shooting each other and singing mickey mouse songs...

like everything oliver stone touches, platoon ages like milk. not a fan.

speaking of kubrick and war movies, see Paths of Glory. it's even more subversive than Dr. Strangelove, though waaay more subtle about it.

i'm a HUGE XMEN comics fan and this movie just came to my house and shitted on my rug.
thanks.

that's funny.  I loved the first two and I've had the 3rd on DVD for a while but I can't bring myself to watch it because I know how much it sucks and I won't be able to unsee it.  Shows how important Bryan Singer's vision was to the quality of the first two.

Back to Apocalypse Now, does anybody else actually prefer the Redux?

In the original the pacing of the movie is so break-neck that when it comes to a screeching halt when Sheen reaches Kurtz that it's a bit jarring.  We've been swept through the story so rapidly that the scenes with Brando feel kinda slow to me.

In the Redux some of the extra scenes, especially the plantation sequence, do a great job of evening out the overall pacing of the movie as well as adding some more character depth.

There was a 6-hour edit of Apocalypse Now released recently.  That should change up the pacing for ya...

I do prefer the Redux, although I hate how it's split over 2 DVDs.

Aside from the scene with the playboy bunnies that was added... I think the new scenes enhance the film. The added bunny sequence seems gratuitous and does nothing for the film other than add boobies.

weird. i really don't like the redux at all. it feels like i'm watching apocalypse now and then taking a break to watch some weird scene before going back to the real movie. i find it kind of absurd to take a great movie that's existed for years and years and then to say, okay, here's some more scenes. it's too late. the movie works perfectly as is.

Wow, most people I've talked to, myself included, think that the original Apocalypse Now is a better film than the Redux...
The playboy bunny scene I never really minded, another horrifying depiction of the conditions we faced in 'nam.  The whole part with the french plantation, on the other hand, is long, superfluous and boring! imo, of course.
The original just seems more focused and better paced to me.

I really like the French plantation scene, it gives a glimpse into the human side of Sheen's character and also throws a bone of hope into the mix, suggesting that people can live peacefully and with sanity given the right conditions, and there's more boobs! 

Plus like I said before the whole reason I think it works is it slows down the movie and prepares us a bit for Brando's mumbly trainwreck of a performance at the end.

It's been a while since I've seen it but I've always put it on a shelf alongside "Cuckoo's Nest" as a victory of the individual vs. the establishment sort of film. What I didn't remember was the distinct Christian overtones in "Cool Hand Luke". Still a great movie but it just lost a peg to "Cuckoo's Nest".

Totally agree.  I think I may have to throw this on today.  Watching them perform 'Echoes' live is just intense. I only wish they would release more of their live recordings. I have a handful of bootleg DVDs that are really good but nothing compares to Pompeii.

I like how they had to prove that the movie was "genuinely funny"

Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii

One of my favorite concert/music docs. 

RIP Rick Wright.

Great showing of PF in their prime.  I show it to my History of Rock and Roll class as a great example of the band and what they really aim to do.  It's better than a live concert in front of fans.  The setting makes the whole thing phenomenal.

Totally agree.  I think I may have to throw this on today.  Watching them perform 'Echoes' live is just intense. I only wish they would release more of their live recordings. I have a handful of bootleg DVDs that are really good but nothing compares to Pompeii.

The performances are amazing, but I get the impression that the director may have been kind of a dick.  The interview segments are mostly them defending the amount of gear they have, how they don't think anybody could do what they do, how they aren't really "drug oriented" etc.  It's funny that they kind of come of as a bit defensive.

I watched snatch the other night.  How many times did everyone else have to watch that movie before they understood everything that was said?   :-D  It's a great movie that makes me laugh everytime.

Guy Ritchie has a new movie coming out soon, Rocknrolla (Maybe?) hopefully it's as good as those two.

you don't see a lot of stoner action comedies.  this is why.
