Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I'm finally getting round to watching Kubrick's 'The Killing' tonight. Can't believe I've never seen it before. Opinions from anyone that has seen it?

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

^the Killing is top class, big influence on Resevoir Dogs and one of the best film noirs ever. Rawer, tighter and lower budget then your later Kubrick stuff, excellent character driven story telling, I think it was extremely violent for the time but of course its nothing now. Must mark it down for a rewatch actually, ages since Ive seen it.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Excellent, thanks. Obviously I've heard great things so looking forward to it.

Strangely, I was looking through Kubrick's filmography to check down any others of his I haven't seen, but it turns out The Killing is the only one. So this'll complete the whole Kubrick collection for me. I might make a definitive list after. We'll see.

somewhat on this topic

my gf is currently studying the Vietnam war and has somehow never seen most of the cinematic masterpieces inspired by it so im getting a list together for a blitz.
Nam was a perfect canvas for the new school of 70s and 80s directors to get political themes across, it was also the rock n roll war, when I hear the word Vietnam I instantly picture lush jungles being turned into a carpet of napalm to the sweets sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Motown and the End by the Doors. all these movies have great soundtracks. So Im thinkin...

Essentials, top tier - Full Metal Jacket, Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now

also great - Platoon, Killing Fields

flawed but worth a look - Casualties of War, Heaven and Earth, Tigerland, Born on 4th july

and then a bonus 'coming home' from war few - First Blood, Coming Home, Jacobs Ladder

Ive never seen Hamburger Hill or We Were Soldiers and cant think of any others. Would love to see a Tarantino take on the genre.

Dyer deserves some credit for somehow managing to land 3 shows where he pretends to be a hardman well versed in the underground/hooligan world of violence, all whilst making various remarks about his arsehole tightening up if things ever kick off and get 'nawty'.

Or maybe his manager/agent deserves the credit, or Bravo need shooting.


On topic: will probably try and make a habit of watching more films over the next couple of weeks. Saw Halloween last night with a mate and it was still as captivating, dramatic and engrossing as ever. The score, pacing and cinematography is just astounding in every shot we get of Michael.

Hamburger Hill is pretty average imo. It's worth a watch but nothing special.

It's a solid list you've got there. I like that you added Jacob's Ladder in there - really great film.
