Cruel Story of Youth


i come and go on his films but man they are fun to watch
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 3:58 am
 
Just got Killer of Sheep in the mail today from netflix. I"ll watch it tomorrow. Will this be the best movie i've seen all year? That's my expectation.

I saw that Godard movie the other day with Jack Palance, Fritz Lang and Bardot's bare ass. So far that's the best movie I've seen all year.
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 4:54 am

The next films I want to see are "Boy" and "Diary of a Shinjuku Thief". Also, "Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence". I don't know much about it except that it has a very interesting cast; Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi Kitano, Yuya Uchida and Kan Mikami.
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 5:41 pm
 
Did I miss the remake of Funy Games or has it not come out yet?

If I missed it, I don't care. Without seeing it, it's on the list.
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 9:35 pm

Posted: Dec 16, 2007 11:39 pm
 
i'm surprised so many of you think Superbad is one of the best movies you've seen in a year. i was so deeply disappointed in that movie.
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 11:48 pm
 
Superbad was funny, but not a top movie

Trailer Park Boys
Killer Of Sheep
Rescue Dawn
A Face in the Crowd
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 11:57 pm
 
A Face in the Crowd


if i saw that this year, it was THE BEST movie I saw. If last year, it was the best movie i saw in '06. just can't remember when i saw it.
Posted: Dec 16, 2007 11:58 pm

yes

Trailer Park Boys
Killer Of Sheep
Rescue Dawn

Rescue Dawn


you gotta be fucking kidding me. what a lame faggot ass hollywood feel good ending. it was good until that part, but that part alone killed it.

YES! - I also just saw this for the first time this year - what a badass film!...

speaking of greatness (no not bill in bed)

there'a a helen mirren prime suspect on tonight at 9 PBS

those are the best tv programs i have seen since lecarre and alec guinness smiley stuff in 80's
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 2:19 am
 
O! Lucky Man

- speaking of Helen Mirren
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 2:53 am
 
I don't now about the BEST, but the WORST movie I saw this year was for sure "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry". The only funny part was when the gay son did some stupid dance move and punched a bully in the balls. I laughed out loud to that (and the rednecks in the theater just stared at me).
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 3:02 am
 
Oh shit, I forgot Zodiac was 07 too, it came out so long ago. Loved that. Special Edition DVD is out in a couple of weeks.

I also saw the first two Bourne movies on DVD this year and liked 'em good. Waiting for the new one from Netflix.
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 3:33 am

no foolin'? that was a great one! really made up for that other version from '05 sucking so bad.
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 5:38 am | Edited by: SSSSSSS
 
I guess I gotta add Bourne Ultimatum and Children of Men, just to throw in some recent releases. I had great hopes for Djarleeling Ltd., which was great up until shortly after they got off the train, then went sharply downhill.

O! Lucky Man was the best I've seen this year, had it on my netflix list for a long time, and got super excited when the dvd release date was announced. I hadn't seen it since the late eighties!

I'm starting to think I'm turning into a female, cuz tonight I've watched "Raising Helen" and cried like a baby, and now I'm watching "The Wedding Planner" and found myself crying a couple of times so far.
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 5:46 am
 
Right before the kids in the canal scene, that's precisely when Darjeeling Ltd. went crappy.
Posted: Dec 17, 2007 9:52 am
 
BEST: Children of Men by far. I also thought that Seraphim Falls was great for the first three fourths.

Old movies I saw for the first time that blew my mind: Dersu Uzala and the Deerhunter.

Old movie I though was gonna be good but sucked: the OG 3:10 To Yuma. The remake was way better.

Really wanna see Eastern Promises and Killer of Sheep and Wind That Shakes the Barely. Bourne movies (esp 2 + 3) are great. Sorta looking forward to/dreading Sweeney Todd.

Atonement was such a shitty a book I'll never see the movie.

Zodiac and No Country both seemed like they were less than the sum of their parts.

Rescue Dawn sucked. Anyone see that made for TV movie with Jeremy Davies as Manson? Well, if you missed it, you can catch a repeat during Rescue Dawn. Steve Zahn was great though.

I think I need to see the movie that is my screenname again! It's one of the finest! Well, that and the Pumpkinhead flicks.

helen mirren prime suspect

watched that
like the way she folded her samich then took a chunk out and washed it down with a brew

kinda reminded me a photo of lunch time for steel workers erecting the Empire State bldg. It musta been hot work cause they all had bottles of Schaffers and lots of sweat as they rested on the sidewalk for their break.

maybe Hellen Levit took that shot

Just watched this again last night. Rescue Dawn ain't got nothin' on this. Pure fucking horror and tragedy.

i'm surprised so many of you think Superbad is one of the best movies you've seen in a year. i was so deeply disappointed in that movie.

I went expecting absolutely nothing & was pleasently surprised. Sure, you gotta buy into it, but don't you have to do that with any fictional movie?

Simpsons Movie
Pan's Labyrinth (I swear is saw this in 2007, besides, it was only released on a limited basis on Dec. 29, 2006.)
Superbad


Best stuff I've dug out this year & watched:

Brother's Keeper
Fishing With Jim
The Shop On Main Street
Beales of Grey Gardens
Devil's Playground
You're Gonna Miss Me
The Devil & Daniel Johnston
Posted: Dec 18, 2007 5:00 am
 
Fishing With Jim
do you mean fishing with John, i takr it you do, that shit is funny- early 90s

Superbad was really funny, Knocked up less so, Simpsons not funny
Posted: Dec 18, 2007 10:54 am
 
Best film of the year: FF Coppola's Youth without Youth

This is England was pretty neat too.
Posted: Dec 18, 2007 3:27 pm
 
recently watched:

Night Tide (1961)
(Dennis Hopper's first starring role - falls in love with a girl who may or may not be a mermaid - really awesome!)

Jigoku (1960)
(IMDB explains it a little better than I could: "This controversial, ground-breaking film set in in 1960's Tokyo, tracks a handsome student in love with his theology professor's daughter. After attending his teacher's vivid lecture on Hell in various religions, the sensitive collegian's life spirals downward. Riding with an irresponsible fellow student, they run down a drunken yakuza, staggering on a dark side road, but keep going. The yakuza's mother and his b-girl moll swear vengeance.")

RECOMMENDED!

correction, that movie is "choice".
Posted: Dec 18, 2007 7:00 pm
 
"choice"

True! I remember seeing it a long time ago and being so shocked when they sacrificed that girl.

A clip from this movie is playing on the tv in one of my other favorite movies...The Burbs!

Yeah, Kevin, those were oversights on my part.

Nope. I ain't even writing the old stuff. I think I swiped that line from Byron Coley from an old Forced Exposure. Did you see his review of the Connells?

"Compared favorable to Television by people who know less than shit."

Last night I watched the original "Scarface" for the first time and was stunned more than a few times...the incest was actually more insinuated in the old one than it was insinuated in the dePalma one. And there were close--if not equal--amounts of automatic gunfire. Not the blood though, of course, but there was a bit!
Posted: Dec 20, 2007 12:22 am
 
I just watched the Simpsons movie and hated it. Nothing clever about it, just bad slapstick and Homer being dumb beyond the point of it being funny.

Posted: Dec 20, 2007 8:19 am
 
Watched this with the kids a couple time the past couple of weeks. It was the most over the top and therefore bad ass Godzilla move I have ever seen.

Look at the cast of monsters alone!
Posted: Dec 20, 2007 5:36 pm
 
Children of Men has my vote for best movie of the 21st century so far.

Brick is a close second.

Memphians produced 4 great movies this year:
Team Picture
The Book of Noah
Black Snake Moan
OMG/hahaha


Other standouts:
Ratatouille should get nominated for Best Picture if there is any justice
Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
Grindhouse
The Conversation
(I had read about it a lot, but never seen it. It's better than The Godfather!)
Pan's Labarynth
The Simpson's Movie


I still haven't see No Country for Old Men or Zodiac.

Oh, I forgot that I watched "Gojira" this year also; the whole way through, for the first time. That was also one of the best of this year.

Hot Fuzz, Transformers, TPB, and Superbad were all really good and/or funny. I can't even think of another movie I saw this year...maybe those are the only ones I saw. I just saw Superbad last night and wasn't expecting much, but I laughed my fuckin ass off. Transformers I really wasn't expecting much, but I thought it was incredible (although the love story was a little cheesy at times).
Posted: Dec 25, 2007 9:20 am
 
Anyone saw Persepolis in the US yet? I think it just came out, it's pretty great.
Posted: Dec 25, 2007 6:53 pm
 
i did not like that superbad. but i don't smoke-a the pot.

dale- that godzilla movie looks incredible!
Posted: Dec 26, 2007 3:12 pm
 
Sweeney Todd, only OK. No COuntry for Old Men, better than OK, less than great.
I liked Black Snake Moan (yeah, I know that is a rip off of MS hill country music, etc) and Grindhouse (yeah, I know that is an expensive cynical ripp off of B movies) in 2007.
Posted: Dec 26, 2007 4:43 pm
 
Eat the Document, The Host, Linda Linda Linda (cameo by the Ramones?!?!?!!), Death Proof, FUNKY FOREST: THE FIRST CONTACT, Superbad, Roky movie, Daniel Johnston movie, The Nomi Song...

I didn't like Godzilla Final Wars as much as some of the other new ones (like Godzilla v. Mechagodzilla or especially Giant Monster All-Out Attack), but seeing the real Godzilla whip the American version's ass is priceless!
Posted: Dec 26, 2007 4:53 pm
 
Oh yeah, I watched "Danger Diabolik" last night for the first time in forever, and I forgot how fucking perfect that movie is. The greatest comic adaptation of all time????

Can someone who liked Zodiac please explain why this film is supposedly so amazing? I walked the fuck out. I thought Robert Downey Jr was great, but I felt this one did not hit the mark it supposedly hit. It tried to be about 10 different things and the whole "You see, the reason you walked out was the same reason it is SO GOOD!" argument just makes me do a big ol' eye roll.

Help me out. I am listening. Convince me.

I just watched Snake Woman by the same director, also recommended. We have a trilogy of pinky violence films by him yet to watch.

My list:
-- Linda Linda Linda
-- the whole four films in the Sergio Leone box set (Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Duck You Sucker) -- I don't think I had seen any in their entireties (sp?) before.
-- Black Sheep (not the Spade/Farley one but the New Zealand Zombie sheep one!)
-- Hot Fuzz (took a long time to see it but was worth the wait)

We watch a shitload of movies so I'm sure there are more.
Posted: Dec 30, 2007 7:13 pm | Edited by: Miss Faye
 
We see so many that come out I can't recall, but here are a few standouts from '07 in no particular order:

Grindhouse
Pan's Labyrinth
Children of Men ('06?)
Knocked Up
Shoot 'Em Up
Who Killed the Electric Car
Juno

Some stinkers:
Rocky Balboa (duh)
In the Shadow of the Moon (surprisingly rotten)
National Treasure 2
Walk Hard

Some ho-hums in there too.

It was amazing! I almost didn't go but my friend was volunteering at Tribeca and got me in for free.

It's on dvd now and I just ordered it from Amazon UK, but it set me back nearly 40 bucks

Taxidermia


Great film indeed. G.Palfi's previous movie Hukkle is less disturbing but maybe even more bizzare. Taxidermia is better though.

I watched Tideland at my parent's house recently. It's awesome in H.D. but a lil' discomforting at times.

The trailer for Tripwire looks rad. Saw it during the previews for Nasty Hero.

Also everyone should watch The Proposition. It's a Nick Cave movie so yeah it's dark. uhhhhh....

I forgot about The Proposition. That was awesome too. I seem to remember liking the soundtrack.

Saw Children of Men over Xmass. Made the mistake of watching the special features, all the anti-globalization, late-capitalism critique totally bummed me out. Slavoj Zizek is pretty funny though, for a Marxist...

If you need it explained to you, it ain't worth explainin'.


So I suppose my original opinion was correct...it ain't worth "explainin'". THANKS!

Zodiac reminded me of Oliver Stone's JFK takes on Forensic Files.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Runnin' Down a Dream was also outstanding.

I finally saw Underdog last night. That was seriously one of the funniest movies ever (dog joke after dog joke after joke = brilliant), not to mention it had the best and simplest life lessons and messeges you could ever hope a child would see on the big screen. AND... it was EXACTLY like the cartoon, except not animated. A+++ would definately see again.

Anyone saw Persepolis in the US yet?

I've been planning on it. Just checked the paper & it's still running so hopefully soon.

Otherwise:

Control
Ratatouille
The Simpsons
Zodiac

Our video store never has You're Gonna Miss Me, so I need to buy it.
Older flicks that I saw for the 1st time, that were pretty great
The Wickerman (1973 original) & Riot on Sunset Strip.
