I also like Leo and I think that he has overcome his inability to play more mature roles in the past few years. Yes, ALL of his roles still rely on some sense of boyish charm, but an in all I think that Leo has better avoided type-casting and stuck in the same character as has Depp. Again, I still think that Brad Pitt is the gold standard in variety of good acting in the past 20 years. What is hilarious is the all these 1990s teeny-bop heart throbs have all evolved into more serious acting careers than I think anyone would have expected twenty years ago. I mean, its not like Freddy Prinze Jr or Jonathan Taylor Thomas ever evolved into legitimate films

I'd convinced myself that I didn't like this and I can't work out why.

I just really admire Woody Allen, even if his recent films are dull.


 


Some of his recent films are up there with his best. There different sure, nut I like that. I like to see a director actually evolve and change. In fact I'd say the only rough period he really went through was the late 90's early 00's. Once he did Melinda and Melinda he found his mojo again I think.

And if you disagree with me I will tell you to suck my big, fat one and I will storm off and never come back here again.

This is the big difference between old Woody and new Woody:

He always took chances. Only they used to pay off.

His eighties work is golden, classic after classic.

The whole decade starts off with STARDUST MEMORIES. Love it or hate it, it was a risky film to make.

Then there's:

MIDSUMMER
ZELIG
B DAN ROSE
PURPLE
HANNAH
RADIO
SEPT
ANOTHER WOMAN
CRIMES

(Add some seventies work, and HUSBANDS and BULLETS from the 90s, and it's pretty obvious how damn good the guy really is when he tries.)

It's hard to think of another director who banged out so many great films year after year. For a decade. At least. Amazing.

And they are all what I would call "original."

He still has good ideas: "What if we tell the same story as a comedy and then as a tragedy?"

But Old Woody would've made a great flick out of this concept. New Woody is happy enough to have come up with concept, but can't be bothered to really explore it or squeeze out the potential. I think that explains my frustration with his past two decades of crap-to-mediocre stuff.

And by the way, I wouldn't be so upset at the decline in quality if I didn't love his work so much, if it wasn't so important to me when I was growing up surrounded by wasps and gentiles. He used to be a hero, and it hurts when heroes fall.

3:10 to Yuma

A solid Western but I'm never sure how seriously I can take Glenn Ford when he plays a villain; he just seems like one of those inherently likeable people. Although in fairness the movie ends up playing on that very thing. Some great dialogue, too - as you'd expect with Leonard's connection.

- "Safe! Who knows what's safe? I knew a man dropped dead from lookin' at his wife. My own grandmother fought the Indians for sixty years... then choked to death on lemon pie."

Curious to see the remake, now.

 


Super Fly

Probably the best of the Blaxploitation stuff I've seen so far.

Not sure how many knew but Hulu was making several films from the Criterion Collection available to stream for free over the weekend. I heard about it but then didn't end up watching anything until tonight. I bypassed all the international films and ended up just watching "Jubilee" cause I had never seen it before and I wanted to see another movie featuring Nell (Columbia) Campbell.

Agreed. I suppose Mon Oncle is the better film but I love the overall feel of the more laid back, almost sleepy Vacances. It's a film I'd quite happily live in.

 


Speaking of France, last night watched ...

 


French Connection II

Some nice scenes showing the seediness of Marseille but overall this is one of those totally unnecessary sequels.

@demonyo

yes vacances is delicious, and hilarious, but the social satire in mon oncle is what takes it to another level i think.

haven't seen FC2. thanks for the warning.

and did you or did you not finish the wire??

Network

Really good film - that's the second Sidney Lumet I've seen, with Dog Day Afternoon being the other. I've enjoyed both, gonna seek out some more! The acting in Network is amazing all round.

I'm still only on Season 3 of the Wire. I'm slowly trying to work my way through all of them but I get stuff sent randomly from a list so it can take ages.

And agree about Mon Oncle. Vacances is less ambitious but because of that it's a perfect feet up Sunday afternoon film. I could happily kill two hours watching either, though.

You mean because of Treme? Yeah, that got some getting used to.

Watched last night:

 


Summer of Sam

On paper it should be impossible to fuck this movie up but Spike Lee was totally the wrong person to make it.

 


Boys In Company C

I'm amazed Quentin Tarantino hasn't tried to remake this.
