Because I'm like that.
for really good but shame about the Stooges/Melvins/Herschell Gordon Lewis references?
Oh, what a way to die
Oh, the humiliation
Ultimate sugar rush
Tooth rotting devastation
Wave of sugar
Fifteen foot wave
Buckling girders of steel
It's a sticky nightmare
Coming up the pavement
Rushing down the highstreet
Clogging up the sewers
Burying the people
Million tonnes of treacle
Out the pavement
Down the highstreet
Up the sewers
It's a sticky nightmare.
Napoleon Dynamite trying a bit too hard to be indie and failing on so many levels, instead being a hollywood movie that pays some artists to draw over the shoereel.
keep comparing any new low budget indie flick to Napoleon Dynamite? It's nothing like it!
The closest film, in themes, characters etc that I can think of (and what came to my mind within the first minute) was Rushmore.
Actually, reading your description, you've basically just described Eagle vs Shark.
I really loved it. But then I have a real weakness for any films in that vein and will basically fall in love with them regardless of how cliched and full of themselves they are (and boy is Juno cliched and full of itself).
Also, seeing Michael Cera and Jason Bateman again, IN THE SAME FILM, made the Arrested Development fanboy in me very happy. Especially as Cera' character pretty much was George Michael.
what a nightmare.
E Vs S wasn't a Hollywood film.
I meant the watery Napoleon Dynamite bit.
trying very, very hard to mimic the awkward American indie type film.
I liked it, but Jemaine Clement's character really was a massive ripoff of NP.
I just mean that they're films about very similar themes and people, if we're going to be comparing films.
actually the opening sequence of Juno is very Napoleon Dynamite.
Been trying to post for 10 minutes.
But the cinematography and 'feel' of the film is very Wes Anderson, which is what prompted the Rushmore comparison.
Surely if the film was enjoyable and worked, it should be judged on that?
but indie kids are annoying like that.
indie peoples film taste really bugs me, people seem so desperate to seem like they have superior taste, I dont care if it was trying to hard because most of the time it worked and I suspect people are trying too hard to dislike it for indie cred
YOU ARE A BORING, BORING PERSON.
THANKYOU. THAT IS ALL.
Do you want a flake in that bitterness?
how anyone can compared the 2 is beyond me.
Just that they were both indie films trying TOO hard to be indie and quirky, which I agree with.
my apologies then.
with the tic tacs
he is one of the best people ever for the following reasons
1) arrested development
2)he really likes the microphones
3) I have no more reasons
both the show and the band
but his character in Juno was painful
"She calls it a mayon-egg."
not an amazing film but pretty pleasant and quite amusing at times too.
plus Michael Cera was about ten times better in Superbad!
his a.d. character. yes he was far better in superbad. and yes, ellen page is hell's spawn.
I like the name Ellen.
Just broadcasting my ignorance. Having read the thread I'm still unaware of what SYRUP means, something in the film I guess.
so so so lazy.
No meaning save the obvious one: I thought the film was sickly sweet when over exposed to it... too much...
typo? Looks awful - imagine it in black and white.
