Im crawling back under my rock where Star Wars wasn't milked not only to death, but the corpse was fed upon.

shallow grave - what a bunch of dicks! the movie was okay.

 


coriolanus - cool as fuck! yes yes, shakespeare with modern weapons has been done before and it may be a cliché of college theatres but in this case it works really well i thought

 


we are the best - 3 swedish girls in the 80s start a punk band. nice movie, at times a little sad, most times hilarious.

 


transporter 2 - good cartoon. cheesy and absurd but good martial arts, flying cars, and psycho gun-toting chicks in lingerie. one thing i learned from this movie is that if someone is shooting at you just turn away!. better than some stallone movie though because there wasn't any evident plastic surgery and the guy doesn't wax his chest.

When I woke up this early afternoon, Mildred Pierce (1945) was coming on. To be honest, I didn't know a thing about the movie, but wanted to watch some because of the SY song......didn't realize Joan Crawford was in it.

oh, hey, there was a pretty good hbo miniseries of this done a few years ago-- better than the original movie in several ways. todd haynes directed it (there's another SY connection, as he directed some of their videos [eta: disappearer])

I don't know. I liked the miniseries but Crawford is so perfect in the original that any attempt to remake it without her would be struggling to compete.She defined tht character, almost like an alter-ego.

i liked the movie a lot too but when i meant better in several ways (not every way) i was thinking for example of the detailed period reconstruction and the muted color of the cinematography and the detailed novel-like narrative and all kinds of attention to detail in the todd haynes version. more naturalistic, less melodramatic (there's that word again).

both definitely have their merits and i wasn't really declaring the new one better than the original-- but to have remade such a classic, i thought the hbo series justified its existence well-- it wasn't a superfluous piece of work and i think it's better tailored to our audiences today. works kinda like "mad men" looks at the 60s but looking at the 30s, whereas the original didn't need to add a sense of historical perspective because the great depression was a recent thing and everything was sort of a given.

but what the hell is chicken and waffles anyway? i've never eaten that stuff in my life (separate yes, together no).

I agree. In turning it into a miniseries they were at least able to concentrate and expand on things the movie couldn't. It's always gonna be difficult when someone's already given such an iconic performance but to Haynes' credit he never even tried to compete on that level. Saying that, while I generally like Kate Winslet I do think she was wrong in that role. Not just cos she wasn't Crawford, it needed someone like ... I dunno ... I was about to say Julianne Moore ... but that'd be me falling into the very trap Haynes did well to avoid, by not trying to find an equivalent to Crawford. Still, Winslet never quite worked for me.

oh i hear that. i sort of have a crush on winslet so i can forgive her pretty much anything ha ha ha (but still i won't watch titanic). still i though she was fantastic in this one if you don't think of crawford. my iconic/imprinted vision of crawford is vienna in "johnny guitar" so she didn't interfere with my imagination in that sense. maybe i saw the series first and that helped? but anyway i love kate winslet--imperfect and adorable. awwww....

 


just read the wikipedia article and it turns out (i didn't know) the movie had to change from the original novel due to the production code whereas the todd haynes version follows the novel very closely. i find veda's fate in the first movie more satisfying though ha ha ha ha ha.

-----------

anyway, last night watched

 


la grande illusion - what a movie!!! (don't watch any trailers because old trailers ruin everything. ) i have no words right now to say how good it was, but it was...! the criterion disc did a great transfer.

The Production Code was great. It made directors really work to smuggle their message in, under its radar. That was where Lang was so fantastic

Yeah, brilliant film. Too many great scenes but I love the bit when the POWs spontaneously start to sing La Marseillaise, and when Erich Von Stroheim talks to the French general about their class affinities. Brilliant film by a brilliant filmmaker. Have you seen La regle du jeu?

hell yes. i know the words to la marseillese since they made us sing it in school (long story). so of course i was singing along with the prisoners ha ha ha ha. a touching detail is i thought the man who requests la marseillese is supposed to be english, right? i loved that.

most haunting though musically was the children's song they play with the flutes and sing later... "il était un petit navire..." fucking brilliant. and it works with that scene in the mountains. check the lyrics here- all kinds of disturbing and awesome: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_était_un_petit_navire

that song is stuck in my head since last night.

one of the remarkable things outside the story for me is that jean gabin had such a strange face-- almost flat, no crevices, looks like carved in rock or something. plus it was a gigantic head. then i realized he had a strong resemblance to john wayne (not so evident in the poster). then teh woman's face is the same type as his.

i have seen la regle du jeu and i remember images from it (wide shots of a large estate and a ballroom and people outside etc) but strangely enough i can't recall a thing about the story! (i must have watched it drunk, ha ha, and i'll have to rewatch it soon).

A good friends wife was checking in to a Paris hotel when Joan Crawford walked up to the counter. According to her, Crawford is still living like the alter-ego.

We don't pay for HBO, but will try and watch the mini-series......my wife loves Kate Winslet.

I'm assuming by 'is' you mean 'was', cos she's been dead since the 70s.

Watched Fire In The Sky last.night and I thoroughly enjoyed.it.. I liked how the drama of the first half of the.movie.is the tensions between the main charaters.and the town's people who dont believe their encounter story. The central.plot it the potential murder.case theyre all facing and worse being lynched. They saved all the kick ass alien freak out shit for the end.. of course the ending kinda sucked, rather melodramatic and rushed.. its like, why is Mike more disturbed than Travis and how did Travis miraculously bounce back when it looked like he was facing being institutionalized!

yes you should! it's most excellent.

anyway, recently saw:

 


"blackboard jungle" (1955) - originally i looked this up purely on anthropological grounds: i had been listening to broadcast a lot and figuring out the lyrics "your father was a teddy boy" i found about about some teddy boy riots (and other youth riots) which were caused by this film. turns out it's pretty awesome! yes a bit of 50s cheesiness is inevitable but overall great.

 


"parfait amour!" aka "a perfect love" (1996) - aka "quel dull!!" ha ha. i generally like catherine breillat's movies and her unflinching look at sex and relationships, but this one was sooo boring!!! since i was already caught in the story i had to watch it at double speed in order to finish-- still a chore. in retrospective yes, there were some interesting ideas there, but just terrible execution for my taste.
