genuinely don't think a single day has passed in the last 5 or 6 years (maybe more) where I've not at least watched part of a DVD.
but was ultimately disappointed by the chaotic never-ending narrative that was the end product, not for me.
Today I am in the process of watching Brave for the first time - seems good so far.
so yeah, AGREED
absolutely fucking astonishing, put together so well
the trajectory of that film mirrors the trajectory of the eponymous journey....starts high and then just fucking nose dives.
the actual flight was brilliantly done. but then everything else.
special mention to the absurdly jarring shift in tone near the end where they try to sober him up for the hearing.
i guess don cheadle being present and taking place in a nice hotel, they must have thought it was a scene from an ocean's film, so they gave it that extra bit of sparkle.
'UH-OH...HE'S ONLY DONE IT AGAIN. WE NEED A SNAPPY SOLUTION'
enter sharp music and someone swaggering along with purpose to give their cool and zingy solution to the problem at hand.
they could have been a really tragic moment if handled differently, instead they pussied out and tried to have a bit of fun.
I just believe it made money at the box office. I need to do more with my life than just stick random titles onto my LoveFilm list.
if out of the thousands available, you're guided to pick that one.
I went on the list of The BFI's Top 100 Films and put loads of ones I haven't seen but got sent that rubbish. I did request it the same as certain classics and so I can only blame myself.
but it was quite wonderful. "Sara moves back into her dorm and moves the extra bed out of her room with the help of her boyfriend Stephen, proclaiming that she does not want a roommate for a while."
It was really really good
Fucking brilliant film!
Fuck you that's my name!
Really enjoyed it
The Hunt For Margaret
Margaret The Hunted
Good stuff, and confirms that Goodman always gets the best parts.
Fargo or Annie Hall. I'm thinking Fargo due to some apparent similarities with Twin Peaks.
Not seen it in donkey's years: still quite a spectacle. Although the notorious Tree Rape scene was conspicuously absent. I lost count of the number of badly constructed bookcases that Bruce Campbell was thrown into.
I enjoyed it. It's the first film I've watched with Sidney Poitier in it. The man had/has real presence.
is it a sign?
I hear this is a detective film? Is it sort of noir-esque, in any way? Because that is an atmosphere that I dig.
I'd describe the atmosphere as "sweltering", I guess. It's a detective/mystery film, but it hinges as much on racial tensions in the Southern United States in '67 as much as the crime. I recommend it.
'try to watch before the 29th of June' list, haha
Mr Virgil Tibbs. Hero
I'm not that familiar with Malick's work so this was quite an eye opener, it didn't blow me away but the cinematography was sublime and I was quite impressed by how well the mood of the film was sustained over it's duration.
best of the three - I would say Rouge > Bia?y > Bleu - and I think I might watch it again next chance I get. felt a bit distracted, need to just sit back and lose myself in it.
in two parts because the laptop overheated last night.
Really enjoyed it; first time I've seen a PT Anderson film and this seemed like a good place to start. Interesting how (as has been said billions of times) it takes these elements from romantic comedies and sort of farcical elements and incorporates them into this setting where actions have more bleakly sort of 'realistic' consequences.
The chaos of the protagonist's life situation was presented so damn well at a number of points, too.
hearing about the Master's what got me interested in inwestigating them there films he done makes
Excellent and powerful.
Like sex with your mum.
