Well I watched him a few weeks ago in Once Upon a Time in the West and thought he was great.

Something I actually like about The Fog (and Carpenter generally) is that it serves it to you straight, with little regard for the kind of campiness that's done so much to ruin the genre in recent years (IMO).

Quote:
Carpenter makes The Fog into a morality play on hypocrisy within Christianity, particularly the Catholic Church, as he has in several of his movies, but in this instance, it seems like NONE of the plot developed or enhanced or even built up to this. It was like some kind of "surprise" ending, but the movie itself was not credible enough to sustain it. If you just saw the final 30 minutes, it'd be a better movie in my opinion.

Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, Prince of Darkness, In the Mouth of Madness, these are great fucking movies, but The Fog I think is a miss. Just meandered too much..

I've never read that much into Carpenter's plots. I always took the Fog as using the kind of 'town with a secret' idea that gets used in plenty of horror films. He's a stylist first and foremost and while I agree the film does meander a bit it still has some of my very favourite Carpenter scenes in it, as well as one of his best soundtracks.

I may have been too harsh on The Fog because its low points don't compare with the usual John Carpenter standards. However, its few highs aren't too bad, so I'd say about 40% of the movie is good spliced in between 60% of otherwise unwatchable movie. Those 40% are indeed solid Carpenter.

To be fair you're not on your own. I know a few big Carpenter fans who aren't that into it. I remember reading that Carpenter himself didn't like the way it turned out, so you're in decent company.

sometimes you just gotta watch something a bit harder then normal

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkopahcU3sQ

so, not safe for work
but it's kinda funny to just listen to when not watching the video
especially when you've seen it somewhere around 100 times or more?

The plot is terribly soppy.

i finally watched glengarry glenross. after having seen that speech on youtube a lot lately.

i didn't know it was originally a david mamet play-- but that shows through in the rest of the movie. of course! good shit. pretty great script actually, and good acting. the production itself looks a bit claustrophobic, but hey, it's a filmed play. excellent performances by all!

 


to judge it just by the alec baldwin speech is a huge misunderstanding. check out the whole of it.

GlennGary Glenn Ross is a great piece of male despair.

My wife hated it because it hurts her to see old men broken down.

finally watching these.....pretty much thte same as the manga(and '97? anime)But the 3rd movie goes beyond the anime and they've done a pretty awesome job sticking to the manga. ANYWAYS...I HOPE THEY AT LEAST FINISH THE FUCKING MANGA SOMETIME SOON OR ELSE IT'LL TAKE 15 YEARS TO MAKE ALL OF IT INTO FUCKING MOVIES.


also....3D and 2D animation mixed is shit.

Was actually pretty good, surprisingly. Could have been
better, but of all Sam Jackson's bad-to-sort-of-ok movies
this was definitely the better. I'm starting to realize that
Sam Jackson is like Chris Walken, he makes all is movies better,
even those that aren't particularly good.


 


What is wild about this movie, is Bruce Willis has played
"softer" roles and yet, in this one, they didn't tone
down the "action" Bruce Willis one bit, instead, they
emphasized it. So we have this juxtaposition between
the somber, quiet life of an autistic boy and the literally
exploding in peoples' faces intensity that is Bruce Willis.
Another surprisingly good bad movie.

Had to take a look at Sam Jackson's IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000168/

153 total acting credits?
Filming FOUR movies currently?

Even if IMDB is way off, Sam's still the hardest working man in Hollywood.

Sam Jack likes money, and he is old enough to know you work while you can, until no one wants you any more.


Danny Trejo has 260 acting credits in IMDB. He says if you got $25,000 a day to pay him, he will be in your movie.

Sounds like a smart smart man.

He comes cheap. Bruce Willis gets one million. the last few parts I've seen him do, he give new meaning to the expression "phoning in his parts".
