IDK, I feel like I should work on being more rounded. And while I may be all pretentious about my music taste (I'm the only person at my school who knew about '34 Ghosts IV' before 'Old Town Road'), I still love grossout humour.

I thanked my dad for never being that guy. Also laughed at the 1999 broadcast porn.

Just checking. I remember having to "sneak watch" the first American Pie back when it came out and the hype around it. I was like 16 or so and like any good parents, they didn't really approve of it at the time.

today’s criterion double feature

albert brooks’ “mother” (1996)
 


slightly weird comedy that feels like it belongs in a more mainstream channel with very 80s music and production values except it’s about a middle aged man who after his second divorce tries to solve his women problems by moving back with his mom. which is hilarious and creepy at times. but mostly funny. yeah.

for the main course the forever glorious TAMPOPO (Juzo Itami, 1985).

 

 


i fucking love this movie and always go back to it every few years whenever possible. it’s all about eating, and at the core of it there’s a kung-fu western about ramen. but around it there are all sorts of vignettes about life, death, sex, love, fetishes, crime, power, and so forth, all centered around food.

as food movies go this one beats babette’s feast or big night, in my book. i love all three of them, and it’s hard to pick favorites, but this one manages to be at once ridiculous and sublime, hilarious and a tearjerker, and in that it covers the greater ground.

it’s just incredible, for my taste. no pun. but you must love food to empathize with the whole premise, otherwise it might not work for you.

if you don’t love food, start with babette’s feast, then big night, then tampopo for the apotheosis.

here's a food movie I watched earlier this week


 



or at least tried to watch it, thinking/hoping it would be a child-friendly animation movie like Shrek. Well, it isn't really like that

so I aborted mission about halfway, the stupid jokes were getting too annoying. In essence, the story line is cool though

At least, the first two-thirds of it. Why is Mr Greenwood getting us to watch this? It's meant to be part of Australian stories, but what the hell? Couldn't we have watched The Castle or something?

Layer Cake, pretty good. Movies like this and early Guy Ritchie movies are a lot of fun, it sucks they don't really make these type of movies anymore.

They don't because Tarantino did it already ten years before Ritchie.....and far better.

Are there similarities? Sure, but I would hardly dismiss Matthew Vaughen and Guy Ritchie as simply Tarantino knock offs. Those two have a English sense of humor that Tarantino just doesn't have, being not English.

Good movie. I feel like its super artsy sequences sometimes detract from the coherence of the film as a whole, but there’s a goddamn awesome movie in there, and Hardy can act his ass off.

Very Kubrick-esque at some times.
Hilarious and terrifying and weird as all hell, too.

Probably my second favorite of Refn’s films (behind Drive, obviously)

I agree about the artsy segments, Bronson is a kind of performance artist but that's implicit in the story anyway so didn't need to be flagged by those sections.

On one hand, Charles Bronson is a dream role for any actor but Tom Hardy still does an incredible job of pulling together the artsy + brutal sides of his personality.

Winding-Refn's probably my favourite current director. Even when his films don't quite come off he's always pushing in the right direction. Can't wait for his new one, The Avenging Silence.

Anyway, just watched ...

 


The Black Dahlia

This ranks as one of the worst adaptations I've ever seen. Admittedly I am a huge fan of the novel, which I'd just finished re-reading, but I'm not just pushing the cliched 'books-are-always-better-than-the-films' line; this really is a travesty. Not just for how it butcher's Ellroy's novel but as a film in its own right. I try to find positives in any movie I watch, even if I generally don't like it, but I can't find anything here. Terrible (and I mean TERRIBLE) casting, dreadful writing, cliched cinematography. If only I could unsee it.
