Regarding "World On a Wire"... it was one of the "lost" Fassbinder films that aired on German TV in the 70's and was re-released last year at the New York Flm Festival. Can't wait to see it as practically everyone raves about it.

Thanks to a bed-ridding virus and torrenting, I got caught up on some recent Hollywood droppings.

Project X- Sucked, sucked, sucked, sucked. Not one single laugh, not one single original thought, in the entire movie.

21 Jump Street- Actually co-written by the guy who wrote Project X. I read his script months ago and thought it sucked, so I was surprised at how much good fun this was. Sometimes extra writers and even studio imput can improve a script, it seems.

Prometheus- So confusing, but maybe because I watched a crappy cam version (which, by the way, still made the film look impressive. Kudos to the art department, cinematographer, special effects crew). I didn't get it at all. I mean, who was the dude at the beginning who crumbles to death? It just got more bewildering after that. And a woman scientist? Please!

Dictator- A few cheap laughs throughout and a brilliantly funny speech at the end. Cohen sure loves his toilet humor, which is fine, but I thought he was sharper than that. Maybe not. And maybe he's coming dangerously close to falling into the "over-rated" bin. I dunno. Could've been better, many would have made it a lot worse.

Jeff Who Still Lives at Home- I didn't realize this was one of those thoughtful, slightly meloncholy indie flicks. I thought I wasn't too invested in the proceedings until one of the characters ends up in a life-threatening situation and I found myself caring quite a lot. Better than SIGNS.

GOD BLESS AMERICA is still the best flick of 2012 that I've seen so far.

Very fun, and creepy character study/thriller. David Hyde Pierce's performance is immaculate. I had no clue his acting chops were so sturdy. The writing does crumble a bit in the third act, however, which is a shame. But the buildup is strong, and even genuinely unnerving at times. A great "the less you know the better" type of film. Overall, I think it is most definitely worth a watch on Netflix, especially if you're as big of a Frasier fan as I am.

that dude in the beginning was prometheus the titan, he destroyed himself to eventually create humans and that is why the other guys want to destroy the humans. essentially that aspect of the plot is ridley scott's take on the greek myth regarding prometheus and the creation of man.

Before tonight I hadn't watched this since it first came out on video (1995ish?).
I was surprised how much I liked it.
 


Earlier I went to see this at the cinema:

2 years ago at my last job my boss (he has pretty good taste, he's a Deadhead) and I were discussing my love for Juliette Lewis and he asked if I had seen Kalifornia, and I hadn't so he told me to watch it. I watched it a couple weeks later, I instantly fell in love with, and just now rewatched it. He never told me David Duchovny was in it! Growing up in to 90's watching X-Files, and I had mad manlove for David, still do! So that there is a one two punch. Seems like a solid film forgotten in the waste of the 90's. Duchovny's opposite played by Michelle Forbes, seals the film as a untouchable combination of skill along side Pitt and Lewis. Pitt is one the few mainstream actors that can always cook up a great character and breathe life into them, and his white trash tailerpark trash is one best white trash tailerpark trash characters in the history of film. Lots of laughs and great dialogue between, my love, Juliette Lewis. Not such mind bending plot and anything to outlandish but its delivery is fresh, with it coming from the stellar cast makes for a really great film.

Beyond The Black Rainbow.

HIGHEST recommendation.
I saw it at a tiny 30-seat specialty theater here in town, and it was easily the best newer movie I have seen in about five years. Totally perfectly stylized genre-fuck amazement. Equal parts Altered States, Kenneth Anger, Clockwork Orange and Unarius, with a great Goblin/Tangerine Dream worshipping soundtrack. See it. See it now.

Wow, never heard of that one but your description of it presses all manner of buttons for me. Definitely one for my must see list. Awesome.

I just read a review saying it should be "avoided like the plague". I'm even more desperate to see it now.
