Good call. The first one is among my all-time faves but the sequel is sooooo underrated. The Breakfast Club on a boat.

I've finally caught up with the Batman films and I like some of them a lot but of the rest of the comic adaptations, I probably like the Iron Man ones the most, although I do think a massive part of their appeal is down to Robert Downey Jnr. I imagine he's making an absolute fortune out of agreeing to do Iron Man 3. I can't imagine anyone being accepted in that role after him.

It's a strong argument although I'd say a stronger one might be that it's Robert DeNiro's best moment. I'll still stick with Mean Streets when it comes to Scorsese but for DeNiro, Raging Bull might well be his crowning achievement. Although he's obviously spectacularly good in Taxi Driver and The Deer Hunter, too.

That's a great point re DeNiro's La Motta and Zampano. I'd never thought of it before. I'm sure Scorsese is a big Fellini fan so even if it isn't directly inspired, I'm sure it's in there somewhere.

I've seen all the batman movies now, I think. I watched them all in quite quick succession so they've sort of blurred into one but my faves were the first two (with Michael Keaton) and the last two (with Christian Bale). I know everyone raves about Bale's Batman and he is great but I just loved Michael Keaton in the first two. But then I'm increasingly becoming a big Michael Keaton fan in general.

I wasn't that into Val Kilmer's one, or George Clooney's but I did quite like Jim Carey's Riddler in Batman Forever and Uma Thurman's Poison Ivy in Batman and Robin. Although, overall, I'd say that was the movie I liked the least.

Fave Batman: Keaton
Fave Villain: Danny DeVito's Penguin (gives the film a quite dark, almost Dickensian, Christmas feel where the others tend to be played primarily just for laughs)
Worst Batman: Val Kilmer (Clooney's film is worse but on paper he might not have been a bad choice. Val Kilmer just doesn't work at all for me, either as an idea or in the film itself)
Worst Villain: Arnie's Mr Freeze.

The one thing I'll say about all the movies, though, is that I never liked any of their Alfreds. They all seem to up the 'father figure' thing a bit too much. I much preferred the more straightforwardly arch Alfred played by Alan Napier in the 60s TV show.

 


Oh, and yes, I believe Michael Chapman did cinematography for Jaws, although I suppose the real camera heroes in that film were Ron and Valerie Taylor who did all the underwater stuff.

In fear of sounding like an even bigger geek than usual, an interesting fact about Murder on the Orient Express is that the script wasn't in reality written by Lumet at all but by an uncredited Anthony Schaeffer, who's more famous for writing the original The Wicker Man and Sleuth but who also did most of the big 70s Agatha Christie adaptations, like Death on the Nile, usually without credit. He's also sometimes credited with writing Equus but that was his twin brother, Peter, making the Schaeffers a pretty talented family, I'm sure you'd agree. Nothing against Lumet but in my opinion, as outright screenwriters, the Schaeffers really were in a league of their own. It's interesting watching something like The Wicker Man or Sleuth now, knowing what else Schaeffer did; you get a far greater sense of his obsession with playing games with audience's heads. It's therefore no surprise that on returning to England to make Frenzy, Hitchcock's screenwriter of choice was Anthony Schaeffer.

The cool thing about Lumet is that he'd probably say the same thing about the people he has worked with. He's directed some pretty big movies with well known actors (Pacino, Brando, Connery, Newman etc.) and yet in that book I mentioned, he constantly praised his peers and apparently listened carefully to what the writers of his films were going for. It's definitely a shame the guy passed away. Not only talented and prolific but seemingly down to earth as well. I never did see his final feature, the one with Hoffman... but a friend told me not to watch it before going to bed because "it's nuts" or something. I'm not sure what she meant by that but whatever.

Haha, I've not seen the movie Hoffman did with Lumet but I always thought it was a comedy. Now I'm intrigued. Lumet is definitely a big favourite of mine, especially Dog Day Afternoon. I've not read much about him but I really should. Anyway, I don't think there was any skullduggery going on with Shaffer's uncredited script. Probably just studio politics. Either way, hoped you liked Murder on the Orient Express. It's a bit of fluff, really, but I have a soft spot for those multi-star Agatha Christie adaptations. I went through a phase a couple of years ago of watching them one after the other. If you liked Orient Express, definitely give Death on the Nile a go, or Evil Under the Sun. Again, nothing amazing, just really enjoyable and well done and, for me, the best of the bunch. And definitely try and see anything scripted by Anthony Shaffer, whatever it is.

I would argue there is a reason why that scene where Loki is taken down works, (and I'll be vague so as not to totally ruin it) is to show that ALL villains are physically no match for their own over-inflated ego.

The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms.

Coming a year before Godzilla, this had to have been an influence. Especially the second half. Excellent effects by Ray Harryhausen and a great climax, when the monster attacks Coney Island amusement park. Not my favourite 50s monster movie but definitely one of them.

I mention Godzilla as a warning because I picked up an enormous boxset and plan to slowly work my way through the whole lot. So any haters of all things Godzilla, now would be a good time to put me on ignore.

The thing that put me off The Joker in Burton's first film was Jack Nicholson. He was perfectly cast but I just find him so irritating. But I agree about Burton's films being quite otherworldy. Like you, I'm not generally a fan of his but I love how he gave a kind of fairy tale feel to the first two films.

Anyway, prior to starting my Godzilla marathon, just caught this on TV:

 


Con-Air

There's really nothing good about this movie but I found myself enjoying it nonetheless.

A surprisingly dull film that proves that just because you have an excellent cast, doesn't mean you're automatically going to have memorable characters if the script, nor director are up to par. Smash Cut is chock full of nods to the 70's schlock of yore but fails to stand up on its own two feet and present itself as something worthwhile.

Watch only if you're a die-hard fan of David Hess, Sasha Grey or H.G. Lewis. Be warned though, even then you'll probably be disappointed.

You honestly prefer Kill Bill to Pulp Fiction?

 


It! The Terror From Beyond Space.

This is probably most famous for being a major influence on Alien but isn't up to much and certainly not as good as Alien.

 


Godzilla (1954)

This really is a masterpiece. Compared with where the Hollywood B-Movie was at the same time, Godzilla was light years ahead: relatively complex plot and some innovative camerawork; it's about as close to the Arthouse as any monster movie has got.

I've not seen it but your review confirmed what I'd assumed. It all seems like it's trying a bit too hard.

Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

Sequel to the original that's more action packed but nowhere near as interesting or exciting.

I've always thought that if Kill Bill were released as it was originally intended, with both parts 1 & 2 as a single film - that it'd probably be QT's masterpiece.

A 6/10 does seem kinda low for Pulp Fiction, however. But what do I know, my favorite QT associated movies are Natural Born Killers, and From Dusk Till Dawn. Out of the flicks he directed - I think I'd have to go with Jackie Brown as my fav. Ooooh, or Four Rooms if that counts!

Has anyone seen this??

 


I passed it up on VHS once, and now sincerely regret it.
