Gotcha.

I happen to think there's some variety in Bergman, but I'm probably overthinking it. There is certainly something called "Bergmanesque."

But then, Kubrick's cold, detached uber-intellectual approach never changed much either, even if he did play with different genres.

And the more I think of it, Kubrick really did suck with characters, Kirk Douglas' stuff being a good exception. For example, I can't think of any memorable female characters at all. The women serve to push or frustrate the men's desires, and that's about it.

And 2001? The only interesting character in that is a fucking computer.

By the way, has anyone watched 2001 on acid? Was it a good trip or a total bummer?

Spartacus is shit. Kubrick disowned it, and with good reason, and afterwards left Hollywood for England.

This was a production of egomaniac ham Kirk Douglas. That movie is an atrocity. Well Douglas knew what he was doing I suppose because they broke box office records. But as a Kubrick film, it's complete shit. When I watched it I couldn't believe it. 5/5 vomits.

Spartacus the TV series on the other hand is my guilty pleasure. Ultra violence, ultra sex, lines like "by Jupiter's cock", show rules.

skyfall

waaaaay better than i expected it to be.

one thing i noted through the movie (look at the poster) was that he carries a tiny gun. 9mm short! okay for a gun of last resort/at close quarters i suppose, but had he carried something that packs more wallop he would have avoided many of the unnecessary headaches he encountered in the movie, like people running away from him. ha!

 


but anyway, sam mendes, not bad... not bad at all...

ah ha ha ha. either haven't seen or don't remember QoS, but in this movie bond keeps shooting at people and nothing happens to them. i'm like "larger caliber, longer barrel, asshole!"

but "action logic" aside (it's always absurd anyway), the choreographies were excellent (e.g. the fight w/ the sniper), and they did nice things with the character i thought. shamelessly batmanesque, but it works.

Gomorrah

While I still prefer the book, this gets better the more times I watch it.

Give it a go. It's pretty good. It gets better after watching it a few times and even then isn't amazing but still worth two hours of your time. Be prepared, though, for any romantic ideas you might have about Naples to be well and truly quashed.

Plenty of this ...

 


Not much of this ...

oh yeah ha ha i have no illusions

i once watched a documentary about some poor family from the naples slums. i forget about the rest of them but the husband was a serious cutter-- wherever the "blood built up" he'd slash his chest and had to be taken to the emergency. fucking horrible. they lived in what looked like a bombed-out slum.

Was sick yesterday. watched this in bed, cuz I am a trek nerd. not too great but neat enough as a trek history lesson.


Then I saw this one
 



which was cool, like a history lesson on bond. not too awesome, but cool for a fan.

Although I'm not a Trek nerd the phenomenon does fascinate me. I'll look out for that documentary.
