Big yes on Elephant.

Last Days started off well for me, but took a big dip in the middle. Lost interest during it.

Well, I blame the Director for undertaking a project that was doomed from the start. I mean, there were some subtle changes like Norman Bates masterbating while he's peeping through the hole, was that really necessary? This falls more on whoever was in charge of casting, but Gus should've known that Vince Vaughn was a HORRIBLE choice. If you're going to remake something shot for shot, at least make sure that the remake has potential to outdo the original, or at the very least have a purpose for making it outside of a quick cash grab. At least when Michael Haneke remade Funny Games, it had the goal of introducing his movie to a Western audience. The Psycho remake was rendered completely pointless.

When it comes to the Death Trilogy, I wasn't a fan of all 3 films. The steadicam visual and slow burn approach gave the movies a distinctive feel, and the overall message was powerful, but I found the movies dull rather than engaging.

haha Lars Von Tier has made some shit films, and the man himself is a bit of a prick. Breaking the Waves is probably his best film, and I loved Antichrist despite the film getting mixed reviews. Probably not a popular opinion, but Lars is a capable director, and one that's developed a massive following for his 00s work alone.

Funny Games is just great, both the original and the remake. You just don't see that kind of stuff done in mainstream cinema. I know a lot of people hated the american version because it was marketed as this generic horror film when of course it was anything but that.

Funny Games has always been a mixed bag for me. I was never a fan of the "breaking the fourth wall" element, but both movies had capable actor and there was an undeniable unerving tension throughout as the movie built towards it's climax. I thought that the little boy they cast in the U.S remake was absolutely BRILLIANT. Go back to the scene where he escapes, enters a house and gets caught by Michael Pitt's character. His reaction and facial expression is one of the greatest performances i've ever seen coming from a kid that age.

Beyond the Mat?

I know its well over a decade old now but I watched it for the first time the other day really enjoyed it thought it was well produced (Apart from trying to provoke an emotion with the Stand by Me song for Foley) and Vince coming off as a jerk off with "HE'S GONNA PUKE!" really good insight albeit 14 years out of date.

I've seen BTM at least twice. First time on a shitty rental VHS with skipping audio, but even at that I loved it. Need to get it on DVD one day.

Am I a bad person if some part of me really wants to see Hansel & Gretel? With a pack of beer, obviously. Ever since only the title and synopsis came out I've been intrigued by it. Something about classic fairy tales getting the gritty adult touch with FUCKING SHIT UP. Also something about Jeremy Renner. Really like the guy.

No you're not. I'm dying to see that. Then again, I'm probably in the minority when it comes to loving Van Helsing along with being only interested in the Lincoln film where he's killing vampires.

Yeah good call about the boy, I went back and watched that scene again and that truly is superb.

Just looked him up, his name's Devon Gearhart. Not really been in anything else, but he was in Changeling which I thought was a great film. (The 2008 one with Angelina Jolie, not the 1980 horror film. Although that is good as well).
