Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Escape From New York is fantastic. Been too long since I last saw it. If it ever got released on DVD I need to nab it.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Carpenter's last great movie that I saw was In the Mouth of Madness. Pretty big fan of him. Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Thing, Escape from New York, STARMAN, In the Mouth of Madness. Great stuff. Then you a few good action comedies like They Live and Big Trouble in Little China.

But really its kind of a lame movie which isn't surprising because Chris Klein is in it, but he dies 2/3rds in. Mel was pretty decent in it though, otherwise you aren't missing much.

There is a scene in that movie though, the way its cut with Barry Pepper taking pictures intercut with troops dying and shit that fucking makes me laugh pretty hard though and i'm pretty sure thats not what they were going for.
yeah that shit almost had me in tears from laughter. It's so out of place and so badly edited and the music just puts it over the top into sheer unintentional hilarity. The rest of the movie is top notch.

Have never seen all the way through but indeed is great, especially Ganz.

I'm on WWE's press list for DVDs and currently working on nabbing some screeners of WWE Studios' films.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I said I was going to watch Escape From New York and god fucking damn it I did.

It was really good. Not one of Carpenters best, but it's loads of fun and Russell is boss as usual.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Thanks for the comments i will be talking about Escape from New York after this Elvis and then The Fog. If i'm honest i remember liking Escape from LA more than New York, i'm a fan of the mirror structure from New York, plus BUSCEMI

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Escape from New York is one of his best. That was a really ambitious film for back then. Carpenter pulled it off pretty brilliantly. That was when he was at his best, late 70s to early 80s.

Plus it had Lee Van Cleef and TOM ATKINS. Come on.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Not seen LA, but I've heard it's almost a satire on the genre.

Also, Pacific Rim poster I just saw which is pretty awesome...

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I always though Carpenter took a big dip after They Live, should probably give his later films another look sometime, i do have a soft spot for the silliness of Ghosts Of Mars though.

more music than movies but, anyone who likes Carpenters early soundtracks as well as 70s Italian horror s/t's in general should check out Umberto, electronic artist who does a straight homage to that stuff but does it spot on, one of my favourite albums
