Hahaha, what?!

I'm giving you direct examples of scenes from the movie, from the actual product, that support my interpretation which was then confirmed by the director as a possible reading.

You're the one making utterly unsubstantiated claims and you're disagreeing with me on a movie you probably haven't even watched.

You're the one talking about how the films are advertised, jacking off to the intellectual premises of films which never even made it into the finished product.

Once again in case you don't get it (again)- we're not talking about what the ads say, or what the director wanted to make the film about- That's you. We're talking about the end result, about the literal content of the film.


I find it deeply ironic that you're imploring him to "just read your posts" when it's very obvious you're not reading his.

Try Deep Water! Like I said not as exciting but it has a eerie vibe to it.

I watched The Twilight Samurai the other night. I may need some more time to digest, but from where I stand now I rank it among my favorite movies. The movie takes place during a time when the Samurai were becoming less important in Japanese culture, seeming to slowly fade out of favor in the increasingly modern world. It was the same time period Kurosawa set The Seven Samurai in. The acting was fantastic, and the story-telling was even stronger. An attentive viewer should become aware of a good deal of symbolism and foreshadowing. All of it was so incredibly subtle though and it's that exact subtly that's totally lacking in most movies today.

Every character in the movie served a real purpose. Even the senile grandmother who spoke in "who are you"s and "I remember you"s added so much depth.

Yowza. Rated it 10/10 on imdb


Bit of a thunderstorm here tonight, though the thunder has abated. Calls for a scary movie! I'm putting on Trick r Treat for the first time - hope it's not too bad


//Trick r Treat was actually gooooooood. I wish they made more horror movies like that.

Do you mean an anthology-style horror film? If so, check out Twilight Zone: The Movie, Tales From The Darkside: The Movie, Creepshow I & II, Body Bags, and Tales From The Hood.


Posted by LAdazeNYnights on Apr-13-2011 18:54:

I will
I've seen Twilight Zone and Tales From The Hood.
I didn't really mean anthology-style films, thought I liked that aspect of it as well.
What I liked about it was how it did so well with the spirit of the holiday and wasn't just some random slasher/etc. A Halloween horror flick that doesn't involve a dude in a mask with a knife or girls locked in their room with a ouija board. Now we're talking!

Brandon Lee's been in the ground for 15 minutes and they're already going to remake, of all things, "The Crow"!? Starring Bradley Cooper!? What the hell is going on in Hollywood... seriously.

Bradley Cooper is in early negotiations to star in Relativity’s remake of The Crow, being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

In the adaptation of the gritty black-and-white indie comic by artist James O'Barr, Cooper will play a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancée from thugs. He is resurrected by supernatural forces and seeks revenge. The role was originally played by Brandon Lee, who was killed by a freak accident during production in 1993.

EDIT: Twilight is bad enough with the emo crowd... if they remake The Crow I can't imagine what the movie theater audiences will look like.

Eight years = 15 mins? Maybe on Fox time

yep

But also, they already made sequels without him like straight after he died... that was way worse--

the main bad thing if they make the new one is that lead- that guy is fucking SHIT lol


Posted by The17sss on Apr-14-2011 07:43:

Next thing you know, they'll be announcing a remake of Goodfellas starring Tony Danza, Ray Romano, Joey Buttafuco, and Andrew Dice Clay.

Saw Dogville last night for the first time. It was a long movie, but by the time I thought I'd be thinking "this is sort of dragging on..." I was sort of just "wow"ing and "wtf"ing. Initially I disliked the technique of it being shot on a stage, but by the end I couldn't really imagine it any other way. Really didn't see the ending coming at all, that totally made it for me.


Posted by The17sss on Apr-20-2011 21:16:

Watched Source Code 2 nights ago, thanks to my wife dragging me there. It was like The Matrix meets Groundhog Day. Silly and boring, with an ending that was dumb. I couldn't believe the theater was packed. Don't waste your time and $$$ on this one.


Posted by WittyHandle on Apr-20-2011 21:23:

I liked it alright, although not as much as most people seem to. I thought the love story at the end was tacked on, but I bet the studio forced it on them. The repetition was handled well, much better than Groundhog Day. Jake Gyllenhaal always looks like a startled monkey to me though.

This.


And yes, excellent comparison with a startled monkey.


Posted by LAdazeNYnights on Apr-28-2011 08:22:

Recently saw Of Gods and Men. I didn't think it was particularly spectacular, but it really drew me in. There were no real stand-out scenes, aside from one (maybe). It wasn't that type of movie. Instead, everything sort of meshed together, giving it a sort of ethereal tone. Initially, I found that to be mesmerizing but by the end it was very disquieting. In an early scene a joke was made that also foreshadowed the events that would conclude the movie. It was really well done.

I also saw The House of the Devil as per the recommendation of a good friend. I can't stand Greta Gerwig, so I was quite pleased to find that her roll was a minor one. I thought the lead actress did a really great job, while the husband and wife in the house were fucking awesome in their roles. I loved the way the introductory credits were filmed -- sweet music, white-washed/diluted colors, freeze-frames. It evoked the 80s vibe so well. The movie had potential to be really fuckin' phenomenal but wayyy too much happened wayyy too fast in the final act. The pacing up until then had been really effective. If a longer version exists I'd really like to see it - I think that if they had drawn out that final act, given the absolute terror of it all time to breathe, to set in, then the movie would have been elevated from 'pretty good horror movie' to 'top-notch horror movie'.

probably has been mentioned but "the fall" great flick


Posted by The17sss on Apr-29-2011 04:22:

I saw "Win Win" tonight with Paul Giamatti, Jeffery Tambor, and Amy Ryan. Really really really liked it. Slightly serious movie with plenty of comic relief mixed in.


Posted by Silky Johnson on Apr-29-2011 04:25:

I watched Troll 2 last night, and it truly is THE WORST movie ever made. It was like watching an hour and a half long episode of Goosebumps - the acting was so terrible. I wouldn't recommend watching this movie without also watching the documentary made by the child star of Troll 2: 'The Best Worst Movie'. Then you can't help but love this piece of shit.

Love that movie. Such great visual design, and it looks like barely any of it is CGI. I don't get why it isn't more popular, but I suppose that adds to its allure a bit.



Until I just brought that up, I didn't realize it was rated R. Strange, as it's kind of a child fantasy movie.


Posted by Taipan on Apr-29-2011 04:47:

^^ Love that movie too.

Has anybody seen "Inside Job"? It's a really cool documentary that simplifies and helps you visualize the factors that caused the 2008 financial crisis.

the more i think about it, as much as i like "The Fall", i am starting to think "The Cell" with Jennifer Lopez was better than the Fall. very underrated movie.


Posted by WittyHandle on Apr-29-2011 05:08:

I was just looking at the IMDB page for The Fall and saw that Tarsem also was involved in The Cell. Just started DLing it. Looking forward to it.


Posted by LeopoldStotch on Apr-29-2011 05:58:

speaking of Tarsem, his new movie Immortals is coming out in November of this year.



i'm kind of backing off of this movie, because it looks like so many past movies cut and pasted together into one movie. we'll see how it goes. with tarsem's name slapped on the bill, i'm psyched about it.

Has anyone on here seen Casino? If so, can you recommend anything similar?

I assume you've seen Goodfellas?
