I really liked it but I can never take Denzel Washington seriously as a bad guy. Ethan Hawke is fantastic though.

I have a soft spot for Donovan's Reef, too, even if I don't think it's a particularly good film. But I love the locations and, as you mention, the quite lighthearted feel to it all. It's the kind of film I'll happily have playing in the background so I can occasionally look away from whatever I'm doing to see the nice beaches, Dorothy Lamour, etc..

Watched Django Unchained with my wife the other day. I give it a 6/10. The first hour and a half had us involved and expecting greatness, and then the last hour or so just deflated everything, and became disjointed.

I think Tarantino and his writing buddy had good ideas to start everything but ran out of plot. The last hour was just boring and predictable.

Planet Terror

I still hate the whole Grindhouse thing Tarantino and Rodriguez were trying to do but I enjoyed watching this again far more than I did the first time. Probably just saw it in the right mood this time. I'm worried now, that I might stick Death Proof on and find myself liking it, too.

a dangerous method

 


cronenberg rules! this is probably his less-cronenbergian movie i've seen (except maybe for some very remote parallel with dead ringers, as you might guess from the poster), but anyway, it's great! a little heavy on the theory, so you gotta know a bit to catch all the insider nuances of the dialogue, but no, not dry abstraction like cosmopolis.

anyway, all good. as for keira knightley, if you thought she was just a pretty face, you wuz wrong!

 


her freakouts are great, and really ugly! i love her for daring to look positively horrendous-- much respect. and yes, she can act!

 


you gotta catch that in motion to fully appreciate though.

anyway, like all cronenberg, not for everyone, and it might not be for cronenberg fans either, more like a merchant-ivory with nerds fucking, but there it is.

LA Takedown

Not as good as Heat but, for a TV movie, this is amazing.

Purely out of interest, do you like Cronenberg's early horror stuff? Rabid, Shivers, stuff like that. Just that I love those but can't stand his more recent stuff so I'm wondering if it's a vice versa thing for people who like what he's doing now.

oh, damn, i love his early stuff, i've even watched stuff he did for canadian tv and found it excellent ("the italian machine"), and would watch his stuff from the 60s if i could but it's hard to find.

the first thing of his i didn't like was "spider"--- i even fell asleep i think. maybe i didn't understand what he was mumbling or something. but anyway, that's my only "wtf?" experience with his work.

the thing that rabid, the brood, scanners or videodrome had in common is that they were a) cheaply made, and b) written by cronenberg himself. so you're watching cronenberg by cronenberg and the productions have this sort of guerrilla feel that tells you "hey, outsiders can make movies too." it's kind of punk in this sense. but he's just gotten so good at it now that you can't tell his french/german films from his hollywood work. he still works very cheaply, his crew is amazing that way, and it's the same crew since the 80s.

i like that he's not afraid of using other people's material though, which he has done more as he got older. any writer has obsessions that get repeated over and over (many painters too), so i don't want to watch cronenberg make 20 versions of the same movie, like the guy in that wim wenders movie who can't stop watching his own dreams.

opening up to other writers has bproduced great work and has made him continuously interesting for me. he can hide his own obsessions behind other people's, and this adds more layers instead of being always the same shit (which is good shit, just, doesn't have to always be the same). it's like cloning yourself vs. having children-- yes, the children all are different, and some take after their mother, or their father, or are an even mix, but none are the same.

i don't see his progressive refinement as a bad thing or a betrayal of his principles-- yes he's no longer 30 and he doesn't have to make movies on a shoestring, but he does what he can with what he has and is very conscious about every detail of his work. to me he's one of the few people who has made time their ally and keeps getting better with age. his level of craft is simply extraordinary. in a world of hacks who do things for all the wrong reasons, he remains a true artist.

Me and the wifey were killing time until the new Mad men yesterday and so we watched this
 


It was a lot different from how it was marketed. I remember in 1992 this was being sold as a laugh a minute romp with Joe Pesci, but it is a lot more serious and heavy than that. I give it 7/10. My wife said it seemed like a tribute to a lot of good actors who were no longer getting quality roles in '92. That is a good way to describe it. Not bad though.

You make too good a case for me to even attempt any kind of counter argument. I suppose it's just a prejudice on my part. I like Cronenberg's earlier stuff because I have a soft spot for those kinds of movies generally, so it's probably less about liking one Cronenberg era over another. And he's certainly a filmmaker I respect (perhaps more now than ever - for reasons you cover) even if I'm not really into what he's currently doing.

 


3:10 to Yuma (orig)

I think I mentioned this earlier on the thread but just rewatched it. A simple but brilliant Western. Far better than the recent remake.
