best movie soundtrack ever :)
more 4 now.
my sister's just put this on. I love the film but I hate rewatching things over and over again.
just watch it for the choons man :)
actally i think i may try and record the sound :)
It's either that or Blues Brothers, anyway...
I'd rather sellotape my eyeballs to the sun than watch that yawning, plodding, self-congratulating pap-fest that is Lost In Translation. Oh look, all the japanese guys are short and the american is bored of trying to understand them!! HAHAHAH!!! Oh look, a girls bum!! HAHA Oh look, MBV!! Wow, SOFIA ISS OSSSOO DEEEPPP AND POIGNATTNt
actual film isnt up to much, and is very much overrated, ...but the music man!
But i'd rather listen to the Local Hero soundtrack or something else that doesn't try so hard.
still, good soudtrack. too bad the film is bland.
fact that she is gonna play Courtney Love is the new Kurt Cobain movie... thats a fucking joke...
like me getting brad pitt to play myself in a movie of my life...
i actually look more like him... :)
but... they should have got ewan megregor to play cobain (when he was young) ....think about it....
She should be good-looking in theory but she actually exudes absolutely no sex appeal to me whatsoever.
but a bit overrated. thats her charm though i think, she could be the girl next door but can be glamorous when needed. gives us girls hope.
Or that she has a lot of charm. She strikes me as being very bland and unappealing.
It's weird 'cos I remember watching Ghostworld before she was famous and, although she's more conventionally good-looking than Thora Birch, Thora Birch is way sexier and way more apppealing.
guess its down to personal taste.
the most attractive woman on screen i had seen in a long while was the lead female in "das leben der anderen" (the lives of others) -
absolutely amazing film...
Although the most attractive woman I've seen in a film for a long while was Nora Zephron ( if that's her name) in Brick.
Scarlett playing Courtney? No way will see pull that off. Just like Kirsten Dunst won't pull off Debby Harry in the new film
she pull it off though? i mean kirsten dunst hasnt anything on back in the day debbie harry, but courtney love? man, ive seen hotter greyhounds... or great danes in fact...
doesn't look like Courtney, and I don't think she could pull her off characte rwise
she was actually rather attractive back in the day.
they should get Britney Spears in to play her... that might be rather amusing
She was gorgeous. Just cos she isn't now, doesn't mean she wasn't.
Scarlett Johannson is a goddess. Lost In Translation is utter weep, but yeah :)
I mean I can see how she's so good looking but I just don't fancy her an iota.
It's her charming, girl-next-door thing that people like, methinks.
I really liek the charming girl-next-door thing. I've never seen her as having it.
Maybe it was Ghost World... I dunno.
So we'll just agree to disagree.
Still, on the bright side for you, if you ever get stuck in a lift with me and Scarlett Johansson, at least you'll have an entirely free run at chatting her up...
sings the Sex Pistols song in a karaoke bar
and it's pretty much the last time Scarlett Johansson has been any good in a film.
And yeah, fucking great film. And great soundtrack.
I knew it was love or hate, but apparently it's hate or hate.
*I* love it. I don't think it's trying to be especially deep, or anything. It's just really simple. I enjoyed every minute.
because it has 'western audience' written all over it's boring face.
great soundtrack and it's visually stunning. Although as Sofia Coppola films go I think I marginally prefer The Virgin Suicides, which just has this aching beauty coursing through it.
the depiction of the Japanese was a bit "haha, they're weird!" at the start, which I guess might be the first impression on bored visitors - but then as they went through the story, and started actually exploring Tokyo, they found some proper Japanese friends, and got past that.
was the stuff they didn't say that was so obvious that it doesn't count as being under the surface. I like how simple it us.
In your very wrong opinion.
possibly the worst film i've ever seen
Film is harmless.
that's the problem
Everyone calm down.
Soundtrack is equal.
The Virgin Suicide has none of the poignancy or emotional draw of Lost in translation.
what the hell is wrong with your brain?!?!?!
yeah, the virgin suicides film has nowhere near the draw of the book but lost in translation is just sooooo fucking empty
give me the life aquatic any day
Then watch La Fille Sur Le Pont. Vanessa Paradis is suicidal and jumps off bridge. Daniel Auteil saves her and convinces her to be his glamourous assistant. He's a knife thrower. She's got nothing to lose. They have a relationship, but don't. It's all in black and white. The soundtrack isn't as good but it's a much better film.
For me it just gets more points for being in French. I'm not a massive fan of LIT but I reckon it wants to be in French too.
recently, and really liked it, though it's not on a par with LiT.
I realise LiT can divide opinion easily, because it isn't based around plot, but I love it for, as someone has mentioned, the mood, and the relationship between the two characters.
i'd rather watch clerks
but dont go too far!
i love murray and johanson (sp?) but it's just ridiculously empty. they've both done better and it disappoints me a great deal
I've heard it's pretty infantile.
I haven't fought my case very well, but it's hard because I think the film is fundamentally good.
thats why I dont like Clerks. Its so far up its own arse it hurts (??). But really, Kevin Smith writes some of the most pretentious and jarring dialogue in the world.
I haven't seen the film, I've just heard the film is pretty shoddy, and I'm not really a big fan of that whole 'real life' dialogue that someone like Tarantino peddles.
I don't care that nothing happens. I don't want anything to happen. I just like watching the way Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson interact, and the incredible sense of loneliness which is conveyed through the cinematography and direction. That said, I got bored watching it a second time. But the first time was cool.
its one of my favourites.
beyond words, but it hasn't half spawned and influenced a lot of crap:
You, me and everything we know
Broken flowers (which was ok apart from the ending)
I'd like to think lost in translation could happen
It's beautifully filmed, well soundtracked and well acted. I don't really care if nothing happens, it's genuinely sweet.
