kirsten dunst is gonna be in the new lars von trier movie
saying its "vision of the future and the relation between man and its destiny is pushing the frontier of cinema as an art". He was critical of the "brutality and low acting skills", but nevertheless impressed by this film
hes pretty much of a badass i guess
(My favourite film ever, if I had to choose)
i like james stewart better than cary grant but cary grants irl name was archibald leach
they're so fine
if you like your Hitch with a flavour of Jimmy Stewart
The 39 steps
strangers on a train
iirc i think you told me which ones were good to see that i hadnt already but idk
the wild bunch
are any of the other ones good
which is one of the very best westerns i've ever seen. love it.
I probably said bring me the head of alfredo garcia & the ballad of cable hogue & cross of iron
Assuming you've seen the wild bunch & ride the high country & the getaway & pat garret & Straw dogs.
If not: them too.
Convoy's the best tho
i like the idea of it... i'll probably see it anyway
i have GOT to see Convoy, even if he was so drunk and high at the time he barely did any of the directing
not as much as Natalie Portman, but more than Scarlett Johansson
since I saw Leon when I was 13 and like FELL IN LOVE WITH HER.
I watched Home Alone 3 (with my nephew, I hasten to add) the other day and was totally surprised to see that it featured a 13 year old Scarlett Johansson. Her voice was just as husky then as it is now.
but i guess the main guy wasnt as good as tobey maguire as spiderman
it was a fun movie tho and i liked all the ironical making fun of the audience stuff so who knows
Oh man, THAT's two celebrity disappointments right there. Oh Natalie. I must still think of her as jailbait with a lollipop and a gun.
you definitely need to listen to the song she did with the Lonely Island ("Natalie's rap").
i liked chloe it was pretty funny i didnt know waht it was gonna be about when i saw it so was kinda surprised by how it unfolded
i liked the ghost but probably it was just cos it was a fun alternative history and the ending was pretty cool
idk why they cast kim cattrall in it tho
Death Wish II soundtrack is cool
it was one of the funniest things i've ever seen.
the other Death Wishes are shit though.
i'm fascinated by how overtly fascist they are
the way the gang members look like more West Side Story than Mean Streets, the fact that Charles Bronson is in his 60s (and looking much older), the unadulterated mass murder by machine gun...
that bit where the guy breaks into that flat only to be stabbed in the head by a Home Alone style booby trap.
it's what the phrase 'amazing scenes' was invented for.
they all have that sorta thing
plus Jeff Goldblum is a rapist in the first one
i suppose after the second one it's kinda impossible to believe that one man could experience so much tragedy in his personal life and not have something to do with it too
and by the end of the 5th one he must've killed about 100 men with no comeuppance or international infamy
i know this because at a night i run we play a game where everyone guesses how many people die in a particular film, and then we play an edited version of the film showing all the deaths in comedy style, with the number at the end. whoever picked the closest number wins a shitty prize.
we did Predator, Commando and Flash Gordon too. gonna put 'em on Youtube when i get round to it.
It's equal parts hilarious and boring for me, like most of the other Death Wish films I've seen. Winner: ridiculous.
BRuTAl stuff. Falls apart in the last 20 minutes or so.
Another round of wide-eyed incredulous slebrity actor types telling outrageous Von Trier anecdotes on late night sofa chat shows will be very welcome.
And I've liked Kirsten Dunst in over 3 of her films.
"(Charlotte) Gainsbourg takes a supporting role in Melancholia, alongside a lineup that also includes Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling and Stellan Skarsgaard.
The $7m (£4.6m) production is due to shoot this summer in Sweden and is rumoured to deal with an impending global apocalypse. Producer Peter Aalbaek Jensen has promised that the film will be "romantic, in a Lord Byron sort of way". Von Tier, meanwhile, has restricted his comments to a terse, four-word statement. "No more happy endings," he said."
this sounds fucking awesome. hoping for 2012 with some teeth.
before thinking "This is fucking stupid" and deleting it from the Sky+ box. Also: I really like 'Crazy/Beautiful'.
I was just about to post that I watched 'Funny Ha Ha' again last night and how much I still love it. Mitch is one of my favourite film characters.
The US indie film cycle of making-film/showing-film-about-once-at-month-at-obscure-film-festivals/finally-releasing-DVD-2-years-later is very frustrating. Lord knows how long I'll have to wait until 'Sorry, Thanks' comes out (and whether it'll even be worth the wait).
I'd like to watch I Am Love and Dogtooth.
I watched Bad Lieutenant-it's hilarious.
Dogtooth does sound really good, if not a little disturbing. The chances of it being shown at any cinema near me (i.e. the Hatfield Odeon) are about zero though.
I don't think I was really in the mood. And I needed to clear some space on the Sky+ box.
If you're not in the mood for it it probably comes across a bit clunky and self-absorbed. Even for me, in the first 10-15 minutes there are moments that feel a bit "We're acting in a film" and self-aware (e.g. the scene in the car on the way to dinner).
(I think I mean 'self-concious' rather than 'self-aware')
