Too much footage ends up looking like it could have been filmed by anyone with a HD videocamera. CM excelled at doing weird things with ''Jam'' for sure. I think the two approaches to filming should find some distance from each other again, if there ever was one in the first place I don't really know. Anyway, most enjoyable and I am a big Chris Morris fan, if only because he always does the right thing for me.




There's that moment when that fellow is running in a field with a bomb and he falls and explodes, taking out a few sheep with him. The others try to pick up his pieces, but bits of sheep end up in the pile as well. In other words, the dude is equated with sheep. It's a funny-but-sad moment, and that's when I knew this was a very special movie.

Something about this documentary just failed to come together. Its a compelling story, but by the end of it I didn't feel connected to what I was being told of. Also, it was overridingly depressing, which doesn't really work when you can't feel for the people you're hearing about.
I'm glad I watched it, but it wasn't what it should have been.

Well it is converted 3D, so inherently, I say no. I'll only pay the extra money if that's how the movie was conceived and made. Because yes, the scenes they didn't convert look like crap in those fucking glasses

Watched it last week in NY at Jonas Mekas' Anthology Film Archive. One of my life's ambitions finally fulfilled. Life is sweet. Needless to say, the movie itself is one of my faves.

Thanks. Just got back yesterday. Had a fantastic time. I also saw the new Avengers movie. Really good but, as has been mentioned already, the 3D ultimately gets in the way. Plus there's not enough Iron Man. The final half hour is nuts. (In a good way.)

I was never a huge fan of the Iron Man comics but Robert Downey Jnr has to be the best thing to have ever happened to the Marvel movie franchise. The guy's just perfect in that role.

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.
