The transformation scene in Lewis' Nutty Professor used to scare the living daylights out of me as a youngster. What strikes me most about the film now is the fantastic use of colors in each scene.


 


Scream.

Still just as mediocre as I remember it being.

hmm...i definitely understand that the characters motivations/emotions were a bit vague (a common criticism of his films), but i didnt think it was without depth or development. as a whole, i love anderson right now cause he's a new discovery for me, but i can see his charm wearing a bit thin after a while.

.

Yes, I noticed that, too! Also the sight/sound gags are perfect. In one scene where the students are filing out of the classroom in the background, they file out endlessly for a good two minutes, like the classroom never really empties. If you watch the background it's the same 10 or so kids over and over again.

Frost/Nixon

not bad ad all, a little simplistic, but it was directed with a nice touch, something I wouldn't expect by Ron Howard (never liked his movies from a "technical" pov). And Rockwell, well, rocks.

The Happening

UTTER CRAP, even Zooey was annoying. 1 good scene in the first 10 mins is all you'll get from it.

Are you serious?? God, I think the first one is great! (ps, do you have the VHS? The VHS is actually the only way to get the unrated version. the box says R, but it ain't R)

fuckit, it was sad... truly a disturbed person.
i'm of the impression that the rape drove her nuts, and that her "gangbangs" were some sort of ritualistic attempts at controlling the events that had so scarred her. the rest (the "theory", the "feminism",the "empowerment", the "research", the endless razionalizations, the delusion of control) was bullshit. but this is not discussed in the documentary and it's left to the viewer to connect the dots. that poor woman may have been smart, but had serious mental issues which she acted out in painfully self-destructive ways. i hope she eventually got treatment.

anyway, an interesting cultural artifact that i first found in this cesspool-- i forgot who recommended it.

i watched simple men.
im not sure what to think on hal hartley. ive seen one other film of his (trust) and i dont know.
simple men is defiantly a good moon. and it defiantly has the cool facotr. and the scene with kool thing is one of the better dance scenes in cinema. but i dont know. those dialogues (which are his trademark) can get really annoying at times.
so i dont know

8.5/10
The story initially smells of timelife movie shitfest, but the acting is just perfect, and the movie is well made. I was quite pleased, hard to say I enjoyed it because it isn't necessarily meant to be enjoyable, but still damn good.

that's funny (funny peculiar not funny ha ha) cuz i love hartley's dialogues above most else in his films. they are always slightly insane and very theatrical-- the characters definitely do no speak "like real life". i think hartley might have come out of playwriting. if you don't believe me watch david mamet's "house of games" & notice the commonalities of that movies' dialogue with hartley's-- mamet of course is a playwriter above anything else. but the dialogue is always fucking great!

let me do a little digging: he actually studied painting in art school. but the theatricality of his dialogue is very clear to me.

hm... his resume lists only 1 stage play

anyway, im rambling at this point...

No, I borrowed a friend's DVD. The revelation of the killer's identity was pretty clever and all the "How to survive a horror movie" and in-jokes were amusing, but the flick as a whole just feels kind of flat to me. Perhaps a little bit too much of Arquette and Cox googly-eyeing each other?

I think Scream was really brilliant for a mainstream horror film in 1996. Clever little film. Basically revived the horror genre, though most of the knockoffs and horror films since then have sucked. It is a bit flat now, but it was my favorite film when I was 10 (!) so I guess I just have fond memories. Oh, and the opening scene is amazing!

had you seen it before? It sounds like you hadn't. When it came out, at that time during that film-landscape it was like ABOUT FUCKING TIME!

Hells to the yeah. Scream is still on my handful of "comfort films"... ones that I've seen so many times that I put on when I can't sleep. American Psycho, Rules Of Attraction, and Wet Hot American Summer are also on that list.

Actually in 3D... Paramount finally got off their lazy asses and released the 3D cut. (it seems they're slowly going thru the films and releasing them uncut/deluxe/etc... which is great, but also means I'll be buying them all for the 3rd time now)

 


Pretty good. Entertaining anyway. No new info if you've seen the boxset documentary, or the documentary on Jason X bonus, or if you have the Crystal Lake Memories book.
