Keystone Comedies DVD

A collection of Keystone shorts that I picked up out of curiosity. I was most interested in seeing some Keystone Cops footage but they actually don't feature much. Comedy wise it's really not that funny.

I really need to start picking a better time to watch a movie. 5 in the morning. I figured I'd throw my thoughts on this film here as I'm not tired. I hardly find conversing on the internet or in person desirable at this point since others and myself are rarely ever on the same page about anything. Goodnight you lifeless, rotting, insufferable parasitic debris incubating message board. I have dreadful tasks ahead of me and must continue to illustrate my inadequacy. Enjoy your movies.

Definitely the weirdest I've seen James Mason act in a movie. He's hysterical.

 


Parents is a nice bizarre kind of picture. The sets and decor are amazing. I love the furniture. The acting is pretty great on all parts, though at times I was bummed out that Randy Quaid and Sandy Dennis were in the film. Not because they were bad, but because I recognized them that it took me out of the moment of it trying to maintain that 60's vibe.

Also, I'm a meat eater through and through, love steaks, burgers, and all that stuff. But man, could this movie make eating meat look gross. Which I thought was pretty cool.

The Wild Beasts (1984) Uncut

When PCP gets into the water supply of a large zoo in Frankfurt, Germany, it soon becomes blood and gore galore as the zoo animals go crazy, break out of their cages, and go on a homicidal, nigh time rampage through the city killing any person they see starting with sewer rats killing a number of strangers, then tigers, cheetahs, lions and even elephants join in the killing spree. Zoo veterinarian Rupert Berner, his scientist girlfriend Laura, along with a local police officer, Inspector Braun, try to find a way to control the murderous animals and stop them before they decimate the entire city in this "nature strikes back" horror film.

Recently watched:

The Innkeepers- another terrific little low fi horror experiment from Ti West

The Silence of the Sea- Jean Pierre Melville debut film, a chamber piece about a morally conflicted Nazi Lieutenant. Features the hallmarks of later Melville such as economic editing and quick cuts to fleeting glances and eyes. Man I love this guy's films so much.

The Night of the Generals- HUGELY underrated late 60's drama with Omar Sharif investigating a serial killer among the ranks of the Nazi elite. This and "The Silence of the Sea" would make for a great double bill!

All the President's Men (Blu Ray)- One of my top ten faves of all time. I was a bit disappointed in the Hi-def transfer though.

5 stars for the poster! But Netflix gives the movie a rating of only 2.5. Sorry.

Kim Gordon is in it but I'd probably agree with Netflix's rating. It wasn't great...

Married to the Mob.

Jonathan Demme used Q Lazzarus' Goodbye Horses in that film too, and I couldn't help thinking of the Buffalo Bill dance in Silence of the Lambs, which has become quite a big movie in my book, as it doesn't falter in making an impression, no matter how many times I've seen it.

Unbreakable, for like the tenth time!

Still great, but a little simple. Needs expansion. That movie could have used another hour, easy.

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

I caught this on TV. I dunno. Even by Michael Bay's standards it's pretty bad. Although there's one bit when Isabel Lucas goes a bit Legend of the Overfiend. I was hoping that might be a sign of things to come but it seems that even when Bay gets things right, he fucks up by not realising. She's killed in the very next scene. Twat.

Me too. Although I'm really more about trying to avoid Michael Bay. It's a cliche to cast him as the great villain of the modern blockbuster but the more I see of his stuff the more I think he is that villain.

Quote:
also watched one of Woody Allens earliest films. Take the Money and Run. Kind of average. I will admit that I laughed a few times. He didn't do a great job at sticking with the "documentary" approach either.

That's probably my favourite of his early (ie pre Annie Hall) movies but like all his early stuff I think it's a bit hit and miss.

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.

It is a bit hard to recommend some to you because I'm not sure what you've seen up to this point. I'd say all three spiderman films are worth a watch... even though I'm not particularly a fan myself. I've enjoyed every batman to some degree with the exception of Batman & Robin (truly one of the worse films ever made). Usually I'm more patient with a movie, but I couldn't finish this one. I could've... but I knew halfway into it that I'd think it's shit either way.

my main quarrel with superhero movies is that majority seem to aim for the same thing. A very mundane and typical illustration about how the main character became the "hero" he's supposed to be... for what? more than half of the movie! filled with misplaced action sequences that strictly attempt to appeal to the masses rather than trying to do something fresh. The art direction in a lot of the batman films cannot be touched by anything when it comes to this genre. Compelling atmosphere, best group of characters, best writing (again... not so much with schumacher). And with Nolan's recent films... despite being overdone (I remember seeing it in theaters and thinking the film would never end and that it'd just be filled with more sub plots), it's actually really impressive to consider how some of the action scenes were pulled off without relying heavily on computer animation. The scene with the joker driving the giant truck and having the entire thing flip over from the back side of it straight forward was actually done in real life... though obviously not entirely the way you see it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1vqx...eature=related He's usually challenging himself to go beyond the stuff he's done previously. That's why I like him a lot and his work.
Hopefully he successfully executes with The Dark Knight Rises

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.
