Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

One of Scorsese's most underrated films, I think. Maybe because it's one of his least typical (besides Kundun, obviously (which I quite like) and New York New York (which I don't)). It feels more like something Cassavetes might've done. Very much an actors film I think, if that makes sense. One of those films where good acting takes precedent over everything else, like American Beauty, or anything that involves Meryl Streep. The story feels like it could've been adapted from a Dolly Parton or Reba McEntire song. It's Scorsese's most woman-centric film, which kept making me think of Jackie Brown (probably because of Genteel Death's post), which I also think is Tarantino''s most underrated movie.

I think Inglorious Bastards helped him quite a bit with the eye rollers, but it still didn't make up for the damage Kill Bill inflicted. I love Kill Bill, but it was too iconic and bombastic and kitschy for all the film school types, who would prefer iconoclastic and intentionally challenging films.

Bastards being 50% foreign language and 3+ hours long definitely helped, but it's nothing like it was in '94 with Pulp Fiction turning "Cannes" into a household word, and Reservoir Dogs being praised for its screenplay. I agree, those days are over. I love all of his films (Jackie Brown included, and Kill Bill possibly most of all!) but yeah name dropping Tarantino is always met with kind of a "oh, come on" look in most social situations.

Kill Bill was what, ahem, killed it for me. I was with him all the way from RD to PF but thought he needed to underplay his obsessions with his next one, Jackie Brown, and was really pleased when I saw that that was precisely what he'd done. And not just that, but made a really great movie in the process. In that respect, Kill Bill still seems like a massive step backwards that I still don't think he's really recovered from. In my opinion, obviously.

I might've found the film itself to be more interesting than entertaining. It's basically a film about human nature... but the way it's filmed really illustrates a cautious and detailed approach from Tati. The dialogue can barely be heard throughout the film and focuses a lot simply on the behavior of everyone at the resort. The "comical" parts are mostly amusing to me rather than laugh out loud funny. That's fine with me, as it usually takes something really specific to make me genuinely laugh. But I still appreciated his unique demonstration of the impulsive behavior of the characters.

"Play Time" may be the best I've seen from Jacques Tati. I really admired those sets he created for the film in the hotel. I loved the greyness to them and futuristic aspect. All things considered, it might very well be his boldest film.

Mr. Hulot's Holiday, despite what I said above... has a special place in my heart.

I think you sum it up in your last sentence. It's not the funniest film but it has a certain charm to it. Was the soundtrack of the version you watched in English or French? I ask because the French one has these excellent sound-based comedy moments, like the squeaky door in the hotel restaurant, which aren't in the English one. But regardless of language, the tennis scene is brilliant.

Women in Revolt

Another of those 'Warhol' films that's actually made by Paul Morrissey. This one's a kind of piss-take of the women's lib movement and features three of my favourite 'superstars' (Candy Darling, Jackie Curtis and Holly Woodlawn). It'll appeal to fans of early John Waters and Pedro Almodovar (and Paul Morrissey, obviously) so obviously isn't for everyone but if you like this kind of thing (which I do) it's pretty much essential.

Prometheus, and it was god damned incredible. I think I enjoyed it even more than the Avengers, or Cabin in the Woods (shhhh... don't tell Joss Whedon). See it in 3-D if you get the chance.

What's up with all the good movies coming out this year? Last year was like a ghost town for quality blockbusters, aside from Scream 4, of course.

Flawed and not particularly original on anythe surface level, but actually very good and very realistic. Unnervingly so in some instances.

not really all that familiar with the director but this one is recommended.

Wow. I'd never even heard of this one. I'm a big Fassbinder fan, making it all the more weird. Definitely something I'd love to see.

hated the Avengers, maybe i just wasn't in the mood but the beginning made me fall asleep, then i left the theater. Cabin in the Woods was awesome though, i convinced my friends to watch it (due to your & NR's recommendations) and they had to thank me later!

Prometheus seems epic. it's definitely the next one i'm going to see.

Scream 4 was my fav movie of the past year, along with Drive & the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

like Murmer, the Dark Knight Rises is pretty much my most anticipated thing of all-time.

Apocalypse Now

I find it almost impossible to have an opinion on this anymore. I wasn't watching it closely this time, just had it on in the background, only really concentrating when my favourite scenes turned up. I was thinking though how much it seemed like a Hollywoodised Werner Herzog film, especially Aguirre Wrath of God. It all seems obvious now and I'm sure most of you noticed it long ago but it's the first time I'd picked up on it. I'll be noticing similarities between Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the Stone, next.

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.
