That's how I feel about most "modern" movies now. The abuse of CGI and "loudness" have made movies disorienting. Its like, "Can we bring back actual make-up, costumes, set building, actors please?"

As usual, it was actually a fairly terrible movie, yet Chris Walken somehow mad it excellent. His dead-panning was superb, and Woody almost beat him out! This movie was totally stupid, but I loved it for no reason in particular. Maybe because it evolved from a murder movie to a stoner comedy?

They're on a Brian De Palma spree on tv.
I watched Blow Out and eventually liked it more than the dubbed version I remembered (I'd keep thinking I was hearing Gérard Depardieu's voice whenever Travolta spoke, and Nancy Allen's French voice harmed her acting).
So I decided to give Obsession another try - I hadn't liked it at all some 20 years ago.
I thought then that Cliff Robertson was terrible.
Three years ago maybe I saw him in Samuel Fuller's Underground USA; the film was grrrrreat and Robertson was no stranger to that.
Today's verdict on Obsession: terrible with glimpses of wow; Bernard Herrmann's music is too present, the light doesn't seem to fit the story, there's no tempo, the plot is ludicrous, a camera move reminding me of Contempt is out of place, Robertson doesn't play at all, John Lithgow's sudden impulse to reveal too much is cretinous... and yet... Geneviève Bujold is brilliant, the little girl part is splendid, the scales work, and Cliff Robertson's last (long) shot is truly great, as he delivers something quite astounding.

Expectation has everything to do with how I watch a movie. Probably a bad thing.

SALO: I heard it was REALLY fucked-up. I found it only mildly fucked-up, so I was actually kinda bored by it.

2012: I heard it was a worthless piece of shit, so I ended up enjoying it a lot because it doesn't entirely suck. Great special effects, HUGE death count.

Seriously, I'd rather watch 2012 again than Salo.

What is sad is how for a large part from 1988-1995 in certain parts of Los Angeles, this terrible B-minus made-for-TV style after school special movie was a true fucking story

Gimme The Loot, 7 or maybe 8 out of 10. A good teenage adventure movie, in the sense that it's the kind of adventure only teenagers have, roaming the streets semi-aimlessly trying to get to a place/get something done and not really having your plans come to fruition but having a more important experience in the process.

Really interesting film, I've never seen the original, just heard things about it, but so many movie sites horror based and otherwise have praised this.

I actually enjoyed Nighthawks, its like one of the
few decent Stallone movies,but he doesn't have
to talk much, has a kick ass beard, and we didn't
have to watch Gene Hackman slaughter the French Connection
theme with a terrible French Connection III as this was
originally scripted to be until Gene turned it down. And who
can hate on Billy Dee Williams?

 


Also watched some Charles Bronson movies
not worth mentioning. Funny thing about Bronson movies
they are every bit as B-minus, bad casting, made-for-tv
produced as most Chris Walken movies, yet, Walken
himself makes these movies become epic, yet Bronson
leaves them as shallow and lame as they actually are.

Bronson is like a wooden statue.

hard to believe he was the only one of the dirty 12 that survived.

The funny part, is they try to act like he had all this pimpness and swag with the ladiez, yet, he always came across as somebodies genteel grandfather, not some kind of sex symbol, rather somebody just too damned nice to have sex with people. The chicks always falling for him seemed so damned arbitrarily written into the plot that the movie was over before it began, even with all the shit casting and production. How did this guy have some kind of career? Making Clint Eastwood parody flicks? The 1980s are almost worse than the 1990s in regards to giving shit actors star careers. Almost worse than the 1990s..

watched linklater's "before midnight" the other day.

had lots of fun watching it, good dialogue, and probably the best marital argument i've ever seen on the screen. (yes, they are not "married" but they are married all they same-- they have a nest & offspring).

one thing that bugged me after the fact though was the céline character talked too much like an american-- i don't mean just julie delpy's accent which obviously has to sound american since she's spent a long time in hollywood, but rather the content of the dialoge-- e.g., the way she humorlessly tries to hang the guy on a pike in front of everybody else at the table, or her annoying preoccupation with her "fat ass." the former is an established american tradition, the latter strikes me as a highly anglosaxon worry, not so much french. am i wrong here? jesse on the other hand is a tried and true american teenager, from the rocket in his pocket to his time machine story.

thing is though, it doesn't matter that the characters are highly imperfect or culturally accurate-- it was the argument itself that had us cackling and saying "oh hell yes, this shit is true life." highly watchable.
