Tully, It's All Gone Pete Tong, Just Friends. About to watch Just Like Heaven. And I wanna see Keane and Capote.

Diamonds on tv right now. Kirk Douglas plays a stupid old retard which is the only reason I'm waching it.
Posted: Mar 18, 2006 6:11 pm
 
Mirrormask just arrived. I'll probably watch it tomorrow. The thought of McKean animating is very exciting. I've heard the story is archetypal and predictable, but Gaiman is great at crafting subtle details anyway so who cares.

"Be Here to Love Me" The Townes Van Zandt documentary.

Started Dario Argento's Deep Red last night and finished it this morning. It's really funky and there's sick gore but it also goes into cheap comedic gags that seem like it's a whole diferent movie! Plus there was a Goblin interview in the special features.
Posted: Mar 18, 2006 6:23 pm
 
And Enter The Dragon just started on cable. And we're going to see this 3D Deap Sea movie at the local IMAX this afternoon. I scored last night so it should be really fishy.

I just watched Please Don't Eat the Daisies w/ Doris Day on TMC and coming up next is Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House w/ Cary Grant. I'm gonna watch that one too since I looked it up and it's supposed to be rather good.
Posted: Mar 31, 2006 2:35 pm
 
History of Violence, Squid and the Whale, Good Night and Good Luck....I enjoyed them all.

I've got Style Wars on deck for ths weekend! (No, it's not about models, it's about NYC/1983/graffiti/MCs)

I also saw House of 1,000 Corpses recently and enjoyed it - I LOVE to be scared, but most scarey movies suck these days. Dwight from The Office was in it, too.

I think that's the same one we got this weekend. We saw Ingmar Bergman's "Persona" the other night and it was jazzy as hell. Any other Bergman recommends?

watched Private Lessons for the first time last week. so great.

yeah, Persona is probably my favorite movie right now. if you liked that you should like Hour of the Wolf, The Silence, Wild Strawberries, Seventh Seal... the list goes on and on.

never saw The Hotel New Hampshire until a couple days ago. it's my new favorite movie.
Posted: Mar 31, 2006 5:36 pm
 
'The Stuff.
Isn't that the one with the yellow goo, and the black guy that was on the original Saturday Night Live?
Posted: Mar 31, 2006 5:39 pm
 
I saw Buffalo 66 last night, I liked it. The girl in it is hot! I like the stupid bit where she dances in the bowling alley. 'The Stuff' is a great film!

I've seen Angel Dust and Electric Dragon 80,000 Volts. Electric Dragon is badass and I would love to see his earlier films.

True. I have a shitty copy w/ french subtitles - but it's delicious eye candy all the same.

I just watched Prime Cut. I can't believe Sissy Spacek's boobs were so big for how tiny & skinny she was. HAWT!

next rental: prime cut. big fan of badlands...
Posted: Apr 1, 2006 8:33 am
 
point black (with lee marvin) sucked so i never saw prime cut. i know ebert really digs it though 'cause he gave it glowing reviewing when they re-released it about 9 months ago on ebert and roeper.

point blank is great. prime cut is less "stylish" so if thats why you thought it sucked then you might like it.

Battle Royale 1 and 2 are my favourite movies of all time. Burst city and Electric Dragon are great!
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 2:45 am
 
BR 2 was pretty shitty. big letdown considering how great 1 was. check out some of Fukasaku's other movies. one of the best directrors ever. Graveyard Of Honor is tits.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 5:41 pm
 
Battle Royale 1 and 2 are my favourite movies of all time

I think Fireworks, Bad Cop and Sonatine are WAY better movies... besides fireworks, they all have gratuitous violence if you like it.

Totally. Fireworks is in my all-time top 10. It's fucking incredible.

I loved BR 1 coz I thought it did a great job of capturing what teenagers might do if they were actually thrust into such a fucked up situation. '

BR2 put me to sleep. Yuck.

i think you mean "violent cop", if you are talking about the beat takeshi movie.

and yeah, BR2 was a huge disappointment.

Crash I thought it was surprisingly good.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 9:50 pm
 
Battle Royale 2 is great!
Yeah, it's not as good as the first, but no movie is.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 9:52 pm
 
Lamps "Night of the Living Dead" dvd with optional drunken commentary turned on. Yup.

Crash I thought it was surprisingly good.

You know what? I really liked it too.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 10:14 pm
 
""i think you mean "violent cop""

oops, yeah you're right...it's been a while since I saw it...


I've heard lots of crap about Crash...we'll see, it's 2nd on Netflix right now.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 11:39 pm
 
any beat takeshi fans seen Kikujiro? its actually one of my fave movies of his. i like seeing his comedic side.

i saw Crash this weekend. thought i would hate it but it was actually pretty good. well made and good acting. but the whole "dont be racist" message was pretty annoying.

Cronenberg's Crash is way better. and speaking of Cronenberg also saw History Of Violence which i also thought was really good.

might watch Grizzly Man tonight.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 11:43 pm
 
Yeah, I liked Kikujiro too... the worst film he's done was probably the one with Omar Epps...was it called "Brother"?

History of Violence was good, did you notice Viggo Mortensen's tail when he was doing his wife on the stairs? that was my favorite part.
Posted: Apr 5, 2006 11:49 pm
 
Crash I thought it was surprisingly good.

The new Crash sucks balls!!! BORING, SIMPLISTIC, MORALIZING PIECE OF TRASH!!!

You want an actually GOOD movie that's about cops and takes place in L.A.?

BLUE THUNDER!!! It's about this secret super-helicopter developed by government bad guys to kill Mexicans in the Barrios and then a "Good Cop" figures out the plan and steals "Blue Thunder" and uses it AGAINST the very bad guys that created it! Starring Roy Scheider, Malcom McDowell and Warren Oates!

Or Colors. That's also really good.

saw Crash this weekend. It's a total pile.

Entertaining for a minute of two but ultimately if the Chappelle Show
were a drama, this would be it. I don't need racism fed back to me in a serious/dramatic/'shame on you' fashion (unless it's documentary footage). Seen it. Lived it. Don't need it. Mining laughter from racism however (debatable as it is) is a more admirable feat in my opinion

...and the forced 'tying together of loose ends?' Stick a fork in it.

Death Wish 4: The Crackdown. Bronson takes on the entire Los Angeles cocaine industry. ****

Squirm: Man-eating earthworms terrorize a southern town. Features two average looking girls who turn me on because they a) have fake southern accents, b) play sisters, c) have 70's hairdos. ***

Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid. Boy, that was one hell of a big snake! **

I watched Grizzley Man this morning. Pretty good although the tape where you hear Timothy and his girlfriend being killed by the bear isn't included. I wanted to hear those ghoulish death screams.

Posted: Apr 6, 2006 7:34 pm
 
KIKUJIRO was great too. I love all the goofing off in movies like Fireworks and Sonatine & Kikujiro was pretty much just that for the whole movie. That shit w/ the car was HILARIOUS.
Posted: Apr 6, 2006 7:37 pm
 
Oh, and I dug History of Violence a lot too.

Cronenberg's Crash was a fucking blast to see in a theatre in Dallas. People started walking out right from the start. As more kinkier/weirder shit would happen, another pack of Dallasites would leave - until the dude's started making out and then it was like someone had yelled "FIRE". Priceless.
Posted: Apr 6, 2006 7:40 pm
 
I like Cronenberg's Crash too. I saw it with my "feminist" roommate and she hated it and was sure it was offensive but couldn't tell me why... People are into freaky shit, so what!?!

"feminist" roommate

rod the bod is a girl AND a feminist??????
Posted: Apr 7, 2006 3:30 pm
 
The other day I watched Private Lessons. Didn't enjoy that one. I liked the fat kid though. They should have made a movie about him because he was the best part of that cold movie.

I also have some Netflix titles I got the other day sitting around, Lovely & Amazing, Ossessione, The Hotel New Hampshire. Then coming in the mail is Career Opportunities and The Man Who Copied.
Posted: Apr 7, 2006 8:51 pm
 
Has anyone seen "Deathrace 2000"? It has Udo Kier and a bunch of weird stars in well a death race... very funny. Haven't seen it in a couple of years.

I agree the new Crash was a bit over the top with the moral heavy-handedness and some of it was pretty hard to buy (like the Terence Stamp character not getting shot up or telling the cops there was a carjacker in his front seat!)
Posted: Apr 7, 2006 8:52 pm
 
History of Violence
We just watched this one too... very good. The guy is a badass!
Posted: Apr 7, 2006 8:58 pm
 
Everyone should see Orson Welle's F For Fake. It's definately one of the greatest movies of all time.
Posted: Apr 7, 2006 9:12 pm
 
Terence Stamp

man, was there anyone hotter than Terence Stamp in about 1967???

but i think you're talking about Terence Howard...right...or is he in it too?
Posted: Apr 10, 2006 4:32 pm
 
I watched Crash this weekend... it may be the worst movie ever made!

It's amazing how a sort of "slice of life in post 9/11 LA" could end up following the lives of the 10 most unlucky people alive...AND all of them just happen to be of different races! how neat! I was totally insulted by this movie...not because of it's naive view of race...but because of how fucking lame and actually sort of condescending it was towards the audience. SO THERE.
Posted: Apr 10, 2006 5:39 pm
 
Well said LisaLisa!


In other so-dumb-it's-insulting movie news, I saw Lucky Number Slevin this weekend. I'm not sure why I went to this in the first place, for Josh Hartnett is probably the worst actor ever. And I knew that, so, I guess it's my own fault.

I'll just say this: you know a movie's bad when less than half way through it random audience members start snoring really loudly. I wish I was joking.
Posted: Apr 10, 2006 8:58 pm
 
Terence Howard...right...or is he in it too?[/i]
The dude that was in Hustle and Flow... you are probably right. I guess the more I think about the new 'Crash,' the more I agree with you guys. All the characters were so despicable in their own ways.
Posted: Apr 10, 2006 11:07 pm
 
OK, so Lovely & Amzing is fucking great. 4 stars for that one. Ossessione, The Hotel New Hampshire are really good. 3 stars for those. Career Opportunities didn't have hardly any plot and dragged along way too much. 2 stars for that. The Man Who Copied is fucking ruling. 4 stars for that. So I recommend Lovely & Amazing and The Man Who Copied, HIGHLY.

speaking of New York Dolls - we just watched "New York Doll" -- the doc about Arthur Kane.....pretty good...kinda sad though...you can see it inhis eyes that he thinks that the reunion is gonna go all the way....he died like 2 weeks later or something...2 hours after being diagnosed with lukemia...

i saw BRICK a couple days ago. loved it!

at first i didn't know what to make of the highschool element, but as the movie progressed the film noir/highschool match became more and more clear. some great comic moments mixed in, too. i really liked this movie.

This movie was SO TOTALLY AWFUL! Noir has been done to death and this didn't add anything, and it was annoying, and the lead actor (3rd rock loser) is so ugly I threw up in my mouth like 7 times during the movie. My god I hated it!

Both of these are avilable on Netflix. I suggest you just get a subscription.

that wasn't randy quaid.
but the guy was a good psycho.
that movie was so-so.
ok for a the director's first time, it was made well, and had some creepy parts and good gore.

Yeah, I saw it, it was ok to pretty good... but thinking about it I can hardly remember what even happened...so not very memorable.

I watched most of the 1987 documentary on Jerry Lee called "I Am What I Am" last night. Excellent interview footage -- it's amazing how young everyone looks! Also, great live stuff -- "Whole Lotta Shakin'" on the Steve Allen Show was insane.

I've been trying to watch as much of the public library's VHS collection before it disappears. I'm bummed because a short while ago I checked out a bunch of Les Blank's documentaries like "Garlic Is As Good As Ten Mothers" and that documentary on Lightnin' Hopkins but now they're gone. Up next: a PBS American Experience episode on Bascom Lamar Lunsford.

Daniel Johnston, for sure. Bettie Page has been getting lukewarm to bad reviews. Daniel Johnston flick is a winner. My only complaint is that they didn't spend any time on his obsession with Casper, Frankenstein, Captain America, et al. That was always my favorite thing about him, the whole world he created out of those characters.

that wasn't randy quaid.


well, i was wrong again. that guy who i thought was randy q. still made the fuckin movie, scared the shit outta me! once the action started i LOVED that movie. i didn't like the victims too, but i didn't think they acted too retarded at all - but maybe thats just because i saw "hostel" right before that one....and hostel fuckin sucked. don't know who lets that idiot director do one shitty movie after another.

'if a man answers.' it's an old sandra dee movie. first i've seen by her and it's terriffic. 'good morning, night.' this is really good. it's about the kidnapping and killing of the president of italy by some student terrorists in the late 70s. it's a true story too. 'ice harvest.' that movie's crap pretty much so avoid that. i have black christmas and shopgirl rented but haven't watched either. black christmas looks amazing from the preview though.

Ebola Syndrome. Skipped this in favor of Biozombie several years back. Anthony Wong (from Untold Story) plays a similarly deranged fellow. Sex, disease, and scuzzy moistness from Hong Kong.

yep, that was terrible.
other crap movies to avoid:
"2001 maniacs", a crap "re-telling" of the herschell gordon lewis classic "2000 maniacs"
"kill devil", a crap "battle royale" rip-off.

Turkish Delight looks so damn good--where did you find it?

Oh and Lisalisa, my grandmom claimed to adore her electroshock. Seriously. She always said it was "better than the pills". Whoa. There was a lot of sadness there and she was completely bipolar when they had no idea what to do with it.

"Good Morning, Night" is going on the Netflix, stat.

Yes - City of God was incredible.

Sympathy for Mr. Vengance was totally bleak, but really engaging. Agree that it's not as good as Oldboy - I doubt Park will ever top that movie. Looking forward to the Lady Vengance conclusion.

I've never seen the Grifters despite being a pretty big Jim Thompson fan, I'll put that fucker in the que.

THRILLER aka "They Call Her One Eye"

About a chick who goes mute from being in shock and is gievn heroin for a week till she gets hooked and the dude who was forcfully pumping her full of drugs made her then whore herself for the drugs he had...Great concept. This film was a huge inspiration for Tarantino's KILL BILL. Tarantino aside, great movie.

>I've never seen the Grifters despite being a pretty big Jim Thompson fan, I'll put that fucker in the que.

Grifters is rad - probably the best Thompson adaptation. I fuckin' hate THRILLER though, despite the dirty butthole porn inserts. Super sloooooooow-moooooootion fight scenes and it just doesn't make any damn sense. Why is the heroin sex slave allowed to have the afternoons off to practice stunt driving and survival tactics? Who knows. I like trash, and I know I'm "supposed" to like it, but man that flick blows.

Good news is Tokyo Shock just released two more '70s Female Convict Scorpion movies, so I'm all over that....

Actually, it was directed by Alexandre Aja, the French dude who just did the Hills Have Eyes remake. The story twist didn't make any sense, but I loved it anyway.

Fashions of 1934 with William Powell on tv yesterday afternoon. That shit was great. Oldboy killed. The Unbelievable Truth was a real gem. Rented that without really knowing about it and it turned out be be a great indie film from the 80s. Liked that a lot. Rent it if you have Netflix.

Spetters real good. Johnny Firecloud/Bummer! (this is a Something Weird double feature) really blew. The Fourth Man was junk.

I just watched War of the Worlds. Pretty good, if you put Tom Cruises real life outta your head. Mostly action and suspense.

Also, Surviving Christmas was on HBO, not bad. A rainy day kinda movie.

And Monster-in-Law is cute. Of course it's a chick flick.

We watched "Over the Edge" a couple of days ago. I'd never heard of it before reading on this board about the DVD coming out. Awesome flick, thanks to everyone who raved about it enough to pique my interest.

yeah i saw "nightwatch." it was decent. pretty good special effects. story was kind of silly. it's the first part of 3. sort of a matrix vampire movie self conscious of itself.

'New World' was incredible. It looked amazing on the big screen. Hopefully it'll be as powerful on dvd.

I just watched Stacy Peralta's surf documentary 'Riding Giants' -- good way to kick off the summer.

Also saw 'Art School Confidential' a couple weeks ago. The first half-hour or so was dark & funny ... then it got more serious and started to suck and by the end it was a total waste.

Check out the new Criterion Collection release of Louis Malle's 'Murmur of the Heart' ... great movie.

TANUKI GOTEN!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot praise this movie enough. I worship at the altar of Seijun Suzuki's 50's/60's work such as "Underworld Beauty and "Branded to Kill" and "Tokyo Drifter", but I gotta believe that THIS one is his masterpiece. Which is wild considering the guy's like 82 and this is the first movie he's ever wrote AND directed. A psychedelic mix of music, Japanese stage plays, CGI, and Zhang Ziyi. Never seen a film quite like it.

Also, the Criterion release of "Night and the City". A noir about controlling wrestling in London! Pretty cool!!!
Posted: Jun 13, 2006 3:23 pm
 
Dear, Wendy. It was written by Lars Von Triers. It's kind of a psychedelic western about a group of gun obsessed pacificist teenagers. The music of the Zombies plays a pivotol plot role. Really great.

I thought the same thing! At first I thought the whole thing might be some sort of pisstake - just too ridiculous to be true. But I did some research, and everything I checked seems to be true. But man, coroners out in the wilderness....do they have that innate level of storytelling?

I thought most of the people in the theater would be Nick Cave fans like me, but it was almost completely old people who like westerns. There were these three older ladies next to us, and during one bloody scene I heard her whisper to her friend, "I thought this was a movie about AUSTRALIA!" Priceless.

That's the same reaction I had. More movies should be under an hour and a half like this one. The trend of 2 hours plus has gotten out of control.

I also went and saw the Al Gore movie, Inconvenient Truth, because I had free tickets. I thought I might be bored shitless since I'd heard it was more or less just a powerpoint presentation, but I liked it. I guess you could consider it propaganda but it's engaging and kind of terrifying.
