Hah, you know what I meant. But anyway, surprised how similiar a lot of my stuff is to his, I mean... considering I'd never seen any of it before.

As far as experimental films go, he's the real deal imo, some of that shit is just so mindboggling, how he'd set up these really really elaborate shots for about less than 1 second of screen time. Never having a chance to rest my eyes at all. Just insane.

Jeff Keen is a genius, full stop. That DVD is brilliant. His stuff was impossible to get hold of for so long.

It's funny, I ordered it off of ebay, the seller told me it was region 0, it ended up being region 2, but he let me keep the dvd, and he refunded my money ($50). I burnt the discs to actual region 0 discs and then sold the dvd to a friend who only watches movies on his laptop anyway. So, I got the dvd's, and made a profit off of them.

My favorite stuff is the home movie shit, with the 4 screens. Everything he does is so.. extreme. I love it.

Just realized no one has mentioned Miller's Crossing. I love that movie, great crime drama. I think Gabriel Byrne has to be one of the best, and coolest, actors to never get an Oscar nom.

I put Miller's Crossing

love that flick

so much double and triple crossing!

atsonicpark 04.09.2010 05:58 PM

Gabriel Byrne, ugh. GOTHIC is one of the worst films ever made, he's so terrible in it that it's hilarious. Miller's Crossing is good but it gets old to me.

Yeah, I like Millers Crossing a lot. And yeah, it's weird if its true that Gabriel Byrne has never received even an oscar nomination. Another weird oscar thing, has 'Best Film' ever gone to a foreign language film?

Don't think so.

atsonicpark 04.09.2010 07:47 PM

I can't even that of that many that were nominated for "Best film" instead of "Best foreign film"... cries and whispers comes to mind..

demonrail666 04.10.2010 03:17 AM

maybe there's something within the academy rules stating best film has to be english language. I just took a look through the winners and nominations for the sixties and saw no mention of any movies by Godard, Fellini, Antonioni or Bergman in ther 'best film' category, so I'm guessing it has to be. It does cheapen the award somewhat though. Was Tom Jones really a better movie than 8 1/2?

chicka 04.10.2010 11:31 AM

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Life is Beautiful also come to mind but neither won the best picture Oscar both deserved it. CTHD lost to Gladiator
and LIB lost to Shakespeare in Love. Both good but inferior imo.

Shutter Island

demonrail666 04.10.2010 08:13 PM

 


Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers. 3/10. For me this is Russ Meyer's worst film.

kaitlynmazur 04.11.2010 12:01 AM

Let's see here...
Jumanji
The Breakfast Club
The Mighty Ducks
D2: The Mighty Ducks
Pineapple Express
The Replacements

Yeah, it's been a shitty week at home with nothing to do.

I usually enjoy all of those except Pineapple Epxress which I haven't bothered with.

My last two have been: The Great Muppet Caper, Muppets Take Manhattan
