ha haa haaa... yes! in the end i liked avengers more because i love whedon's snappy dialogue. but could i say it's "better"? dark night has a much deeper plot and character development, so.. yes, you're completely right.

I saw this sci-fi film called Monsters. It was pretty good. I've yet to see The Dark Knight Rises : (

I thought The Avengers was very cliched myself, and felt more like a gimmick, rather than something I could actually become invested in. I'll admit it's a decent film and I had fun the first time, but it isn't the kind of thing that would hold up for me.

I was fascinated by that Bane character. The first time a villain has overpowered the protagonist to this extent in a superhero film. He exemplified a great sense of where to hit... knowing the right places to attack to strike fear and pain into his targets. He nearly killed Batman, but decided not to only because he wanted his punishment to be "more severe". The whole Knightfall relation with him snapping Batman's back was cool too. I have to agree however about some parts in the beginning feeling a bit dry. I really enjoyed the scene with the little boy singing the national anthem while it was clear to the audience that a bunch of chaos would ensue... and there is a "playful" comment from Bane right before he pushes the button to make the entire field cave in, "what a lovely lovely voice!". The soundtrack was excellent as well, and I was delighted to see the return of the batcave.

Please keep the discourse going in my thread. You have a lot of good insights.

I was impressed and even a little unsettled by the Bane fight scene (pt. 1). You're right that it was a first. For once, our hero was not on control at all, and that made for a tense and even hard to watch viewing experience.

I wouldn't refer to him as my personal favorite from what I've seen, but it is admittedly brilliant, all three of those that I mentioned.

Thanks! Kitano is such an amazing man. Sonatine is a perfect film, I like it just a little bit better than Hana-Bi (Fireworks). I haven't seen A Scene at the Sea but its on my watch list! I'd like recommend his most challenging, unique and strange endeavour in film, Takeshis. The story is wild trip into Kitano's mind of delusions and abstract dreams. Stars Kitano as himself and as Akihiro Miwa and blonde lookalike trying to make his way in the film industry. People in this world are are extremely downtrodden on this lookalike, and finally he's had his fill, violence, death, and lots of laughter ensues.


Recently been on a French film trip...

 

Amélie.
I know its nothing new or original to absolutely love this film. But I fucking love this film. Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Audery Tautou own my heart. Bought it on Blu-Ray for $5.99. *hugs*

 

Breathless
Somebody watched this film recently on here I think, well... Jean Seberg looks just jumped out at me, she was way ahead of her time, a look many talented actors and actresses in the 60's had, a certain charisma and fashion that just make the individual pop out from the picture and people around them. People like, Marcello Mastroianni in Fellini's 8˝, and Monica Vitti in the Antonioni's films, these people were ahead of there time in the scope of being sexy and cool. Its a shame and disgusting to think that a wonderful woman like Jean Seberg was a target of FBI lies and illegal activities all stemming from her activities and support for the NAACP and various other civil rights groups, that probably lead to 'apparent' suicide. Fuck them.

 

La Haine
The end... with the closing scene I was like "Yep. This film is amazing". A great snapshot of slice of life in the everyday French ghetto circa the early 90's. Adventure through the streets of France of how to put a loaded .44 magnum to good use. Also awesome use of Beastie Boys tracks will always go a long ways in my books! Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, who plays Amélie's long lost love! Just made that connection! I love finding links between great material... film, music, and art.

Mulholland Drive with a friend. We didn't know what the fuck was going on so we just stopped watching and played video games.

All Lynch really prefers is that his audience figures it all out themselves... not in a manipulative manner, but to experience it and conjure what it means to you. Not everything we consume has to make sense right away, or ever for that matter... Mulholland Drive is simply one of the greatest dreamlike films of all time. Naomi Watts gives my favorite performance from an actress, just brilliant.

And Ghostchase, thanks a lot for the recommendation. Your description sounds very intriguing without giving too much away. I'll look into it soon. Also if you're into French cinema, go after some of Robert Bresson's films, if you haven't already. Pickpocket is the one I always recommend

Oh? Well I'll give it a second try then. Thanks.

Paul Metzger's old band TVBC did a great soundtrack for that film; got to see them perform it twice. They released it a few years back. Great film.

The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant.

Even by Fassbinder's standards this is full on gayness. Paul Morrissey with a professional cast. It's basically a remake of All About Eve and there's a bit when Margit Carstensen tries to walk across the screen in an impossibly tight dress that I swear is one of my favourite moments in film ever. My cultural life would be so much more straightforward if I had a thing for cock.

Ken Park

Lots of penis. Majority of penises are erect.

Much better than KIDS.

Leaves one with that warm, special, "What the fuck did I just watch?" feeling.

Has anyone else seen it? Or was it all a dream?

Unfortunately, I've seen it. I do respect the seismic cultural change that Larry Clark's film "kids" had on cinema, but I just don't like his work. "ken park" is more of the same.... white kid suburban anomie with shock cuts and little sympathy for anyone. And yes, with the erect cocks and minor-on-milf-sex, it's no surprise this film will probably never see the light of day outside of bootleg versions.

The first Godard I watched, I found it at the same time horribly pretentious and visually amazing. The Raymond Devos scene is great.

Today I watched Dark Knight Rises and Total Recall back to back. DKR was really good, might be the best of the three. As for Total Recall, well, it's pretty sad when an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie is more profound and thought provoking.

Hey gang.... I need some help. I'm working on a blog article about bit torrent sites like KG, CG etc and am looking for some personal experiences. I write freelance and have been wanting to write about my (limited) experiences for awhile now.

I wouldn't use any names, screenames etc. Just curious in asking some questions. Email me at Henryhill51@aol.com and put in the subject line "sonic youth" if interested.
