Great news guys! there might come a Howard The Duck sequel/remake. Lea Thompson who played in the original movie would like to direct it.


Sev, you remind me of my nephew who got to watch E.T. when he was too young. He didn't sleep for a month or so, maybe even more

ah, finally was able to catch LADY BIRD

 


which is on prime video of all places! who knew?

this movie was supersuperfun. not a single boring moment i thought. continuous action and good writing and hilarious dialogue and just so well fucking done.

why people don’t spend pages and pages writing about this movie and discussing it? i have no idea. there is no spandex or cgi i guess. and it’s not about dudes, by dudes, for dudes. lmao.

anyway. this movie was great. this is probably like what pretty in pink should have been if it would have been done correct. but instead it was written by a dude about a girl the way he imagined her. so we have that. this is not it at all. this is a real non-dumb girl being real.

i was looking at this movie and thinking there was way too much detail about “sacramento” not to be autobiographical. so afterwards i went and scanned greta gerwigs page and sure enough, there are some clear parallels, it’s not i think a “true story” but it’s highly inspired, obviously, clearly. and it’s so fucking good.

when i think about scorsese writing and directing mean streets, and how it was also autobiographical, not literally but you know, inspired/formed by/ whatever, i keep thinking, sure this lacks the drama of being torn up between god and violence, but it’s sure a livelier and happier take on everyday life in THIS century.

hey! not everybody can grow up asthmatic in a tenement.

but oh my point was i expect more great things from her. looking forward to whatever project she’s working on next.

but anyway. this was very good. better than frances ha. better MADE. less homage to the french new wave, more smart incorporation of its lessons. it’s all so well made, the cast is great, the story is great, the characters are great, and yeah, you don’t have to be miserable to enjoy a good well-made movie. it’s also accessible! like so many greatest hits lololol. but srsly.

sacramento! who knew?

anyway, props for all this. also: nobody here has unlimited resources or x-ray vision. so extra plus points for that. made for 10 million bucks! high maybe for an indie but still on the cheap considering its success.

ah, fuck, sweet and good movie, i swear. it’s rare that you get both things in one package. this is proof that you don’t have to be cynical or depressed to be intelligent. i want more catholics! yeah. the best art is by catholics lololol. but srsly.

well. ok. bye i guess.

Also something nightmarish about it. I have thankfully forgotten *specificaly* what that nightmarish element was, but it was there. Of all the movies of my young life, this fucker made me cry and gave me nightmares. The only other one that did that so early was ďMonster Squad,Ē and thatís only because ... FRANKENSTEINíS MONSTER WAS A GOOD GUY, WHY DID HE HAVE TO GET SUCKED INTO THE DIMENSIONAL PORTAL AND DIE EITH DRACULA?!

That is not great news.
ET had some moments that were creepy, like, first time around, but once you realized what the deal was it was more bittersweet than anything else.

Howard the Duck is fucking horror porn, far as Iím concerned. Itís fucking hentai bestiality. Or the closest thing to it. NO.

i forgot to mention i guess how so well acted it is, especially by the 2 main characters. this is important not just for believability but there are so many great lines in this movie their delivery is crucial. a bit sorkinian maybe? something. good lines! very good lines.

think ima rewatch it tonite just for the lines since i already know the ending.

I've just finished watching all four documentaries that VICE produced last year. Fascinating!

'Outsider - A Look At The World's Most Insane Movies'


 


Laz Rojas was my favorite one by far, followed by the one about Miami Connection. Truly emotional and hilarious.


Trash films have always fascinated me. They are often made by filmmakers with a lot of dedication, persistence and a love for the art form.
I have collected many over the years and a few others that spring to mind... with slightly higher budgets are:

Thundercrack! (1975) by Curt McDowell


 


Dark Star (1974)


 


Even Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers (2009) has its place in this area of film making for me. I'm sure some of you would disagree.


 


Be sure to check out Severin Films if you are into this kind of beautiful trash.

Please share your recommendations. I'm always looking for more to add to my collection.


Had to think of our old friend...

Top notch noir. Otto Preminger at his most cynical. Gene Tierney at her most beautiful. Dialogue you could cut diamonds with.

this thread suddenly got very very good again

so much to see!

thanks



as it is, have little to contribute today. i (finally) saw “stargate’ yesterday and thought it was shit. lots of spectacle and cgi and very little of interest happens. i was just curious to find out what it was all about since i had never seen it or the many tv shows it forever spawned. anyway. interesting only for historical purposes otherwise highly skippable. as a movie anyway. for the mythology, just read a synopsis?

A few you may check into:

1) Jim VanBebber's "Deadbeat At Dawn", or really any of VanBebber's stuff.

2) Christiane F.- very disturbing teen prostitution/drug addict German film from the 80's. One can feel the degradation and filth falling off the screen.

3) I don't think he's making trash cinema, but anything by Sion Sono (especially "Tokyo Tribe", which is an epic musical/Walter Hill Warriors rip off) is pretty off the rails.

4) Anything by Jorg Buttgereit. "Nekromantic" or "Schraam".

Oh man, donít recommend Christians F. Yikes. Oof. Never need to see that one again. Also, I donít think it falls into quite the same trash-film category as some of these. Pretty serious business if I recall, and based on a true story of course. With David Bowie! But nah... never again.

I got Amazon Prime this week, so far I've watched
Lady Bird- A really nice surprise. Really liked it. Very well written.
The Disaster Artist- So damn funny.
and just watched Spectre. I enjoyed Spcetre, as I've enjoyed all the Daniel Craig Bond movies. The best action in the newer Bonds are whenever Craig's Bond gets into those knockdown fist fights. The one he has on the train in Spectre is some good action.

Oh, the last movie I watched was “I, Tonya.”

It was good... fellas... on ice.
It was GoodFellas on ice. Totally ripped off Scorcese’s pacing and style and mixed it with some ice skating. It was still good, but it could have been better. David O. Russell is better at ripping off Scorsese than whatshisname who directed this, and Scorsese himself probably would have had fun with it.

Props to Margot Robbie — who looks nothing like Tonya Harding apart from being blond, but damn well learned to skate like a motherfucker for this! — and whatshisname from the Captain America movies. Sebastian Stan? Think so.

Lots of domestic violence, kinda glossed over and rephramed as a black comedy. And domestic violence doth not a comedy make, really.

Anyway, good not great.

Some nice picks.

Some more suggestions at the ultra-trashy end ...

Russ Meyer and early (ie pre-Hairspray) John Waters are the gold standard, along with Paul Morrissey's films for Andy Warhol, although some people find those deadly-boring. Ditto Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures. Also at the more underground end is The Kuchar Brothers Hold Me While I'm Naked and Ken Jacob's Blonde Cobra.

More mainstream (relatively speaking) ...

Blood Feast - 60s no-budget gore-fest from H.G. Lewis. If The Cramps had made movies instead of music, they'd have probably looked a lot like Blood Feast.

The Astro-Zombies - The director TV Mikels earned the nickname '1 shot' because he refused to shoot any scene more than once. The films are grindhouse to the core and Astro-Zombies even feautures trash legend Tura Satana.

 


Death Race 2000 - Paul Bartel's 70s original is a must-see. Avoid the remakes and the recent 'sequel' though.

Basket Case - Perhaps more sleazy than trashy, but even so. One of my favourite films, period.

Return of the Living Dead - Essentially a spoof cash-in on Romero's zombie films but an 80s trash classic in its own right.

 


Hobo With a Shotgun - One of the better examples (alongside Planet Terror) of those post-Tarantino homages to trashy 70s-80s grindhouse films.

 


EDIT:

Some other honourable mentions:

Rat Ffink a Boo Boo - A 60s attempt at making a superhero film without a budget or a script.

 


Funhouse - Tobe Hooper's next film after Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I'm amazed Rob Zombie hasn't tried to remake this.

Piranha 3DD - Essentially Girls Gone Wild meets Roger Corman with a cameo from David Hasselhoff.

I could keep adding to this list forever so I'll stop now. ... or at least try to.
