Iron Man 2

I liked the first one mainly for its humour, which is still in evidence here, but the whole thing seems like an excuse to shoehorn even more slumming big name stars into silly roles. I think I'm gonna give up on seeing anymore superhero movies for a while.

And happy birthday Sonic Sphere! I couldn't find an appropriately birthday-like image so here's a motivation poster of Peter Cushing.

Thanks for the recommendations. It's weird that I've still not seen a single Batman film. It's not that I've been avoiding them, just that I never seem to be around when they're on or ever feel motivated enough to seek them out, but I really do need to see at least a few.

7/10

despite the rating, I sort of have a strong connection to this film. It has its dull moments, but I love the "dreamlike" quality it has. The opening shot of the dead body floating in the pool is still one of my favorite images. And William Holden.. how many great movies has he been in? everything I've seen him in so far has been good/great. Stalag 17, Network, Dark Past, Sunset Boulevard. This has often been mentioned as one of David Lynch's favorite movies.

I have a real fascination with that whole Hollywood gothic thing and I'd say Sunset Boulevard and Mullholland Dr as perhaps its two most perfect expressions. The dreamlike quality you mention is spot on, and seems to tie in with a sense held both by Wilder and Lynch of Hollywood as an idea or state of mind, as much as a place. Never having been to Hollywood myself, I can really relate to that whole 'Hollywood state of mind' thing. It's street names, etc, have a real mystery for me that obviously transcend their actual reality. But it's not simply a rose tinted mystique. It's hard to explain. More like a massively bittersweet and perverse affection for a place I only know about through watching movies and reading books about it. I see you're from Death Valley, so I imagine you must have a slightly more grounded take on the whole thing.

Something I find fascinating about the whole 'Hollywood as a state of mind' thing is its sense of people reinventing themselves or fading away in a kind of reclusive luxury. I love that idea, for some reason.

As for Billy Wilder, yes I like pretty much all that I've seen by him but have a certain love/hate relationship with his dialogue, which I sometimes find comes across as being perhaps a bit too clever for its own good. But when it works (or I'm in the right mood for it) I love it. I don't know what you've seen but alongside Sunset Boulevard, I'd definitely recommend Some Like it Hot and Double Indemnity.

yeah, some like it hot, sunset BLVD and double indemnity are all amazing. i really like Ace in the Hole as Well, very great film. a Foreign Affair wasn't so great though.

and i recently saw the black power mixtape which was very good:


and halloween II which was also good, but for completely different reasons.

I've always wanted to check this one out. I hope Netflix has it.

It actually served a purpose and wasn't merely thrown in there for the sake of it. I just love the look of the film and its compelling atmosphere. The shots of both angels drifting above the city scapes nearly brought tears to my eyes. This may sound silly to some of you, but it exemplifies what I love about cinema so I don't care. Wim Wenders is one of my absolute favorites. I recommend it.

Yes, I loved it too. Now you need to see Faraway, So Close!

We watched Faraway, So Near last night. We both thought it was awful. What a boring load of crap.

Blank City

I'm sure plenty here have already seen it. Great documentary. Even if you're not into the films, the archive footage of the No Wave scene and general 70s NY nastiness is priceless.

Inspired me to stick this on again ...

 


Fingered

Easily my favourite Richard Kern movie. I just love everything about this film.

Followed by ...

 


The Right Side of My Brain

Easily my second favourite Richard Kern movie. I just love everything about this film.

I want to like Altman more than I do. I love Nashville but I think that has more to do with me liking the subject matter than anything to do with the film itself. I've not seen 4 Women, though, so can't comment on that. I do like Short Cuts, though.

High Art

Last night on netflix.

First time for the gf, my 2nd time.

Meh, it's all right. A little pretentious, but kind of fascinating nonetheless.

Better than Faraway, So Close, anyway. We needed something to recover from that bummer.
