Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Bubz, my Argo review is up.

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Because I call first dibs on this.

@ SCJ, Cool stuff . Sounds great and I can't wait to see it. Affleck is becoming one of the American directors to watch.

A masterpiece, and it still remains so much better than anything to try and emulate it's style since. I also think I'm in love with Jean Seberg in this. The end gave me chills. Seriously thinking this has just gone straight into my top 5 films ever, it's that good.

The other was Band Of Outsiders (1964), which was great, but nowhere near the level of Breathless, and probably not as good as some of the Melville stuff I've seen. Still really great, and again the end was brilliant.
You need to see as soon as possible "Vivre Sa Vie", "Contempt" and "Pierrot Le Fou", The work of Godard from the 60's is something out of this world.

His later work is amazing aswell but is even more radical and difficult to get, specially because there is no narrative in him

And IMO Anna Karina>>>> Jean Seberg. Even with the beauty that Seberg is in Breathless

Sadly for Lumet he was part from an era of great directors, his generation was probably the last in Hollywood that were really interested in the experimental side of things, primarly because of the influence from the Nouvelle Vague. And that was one of the reasons for most of that movies to bomb in the Box Office.

Oh man, I'd actually kill for that, hell I'd kill for John Carpenter to go on a roll of amazing movies like he did in the 70s and 80s.

I've actually been on a John Carpenter binge the last few weeks, whilst he's not gonna make the most acclaimed movies of all time or anything I can't think of another director who I could just stick on one of his movies (Apart from Christine, Ghost Of Mars, Vampires and that fucking Chevy Chase film) and enjoy it the same as I enjoyed it the first time.

I know that The Thing and Halloween are well known but I wish that something like of Prince Of Darkness was at least heard of by the majority of people



I've never found a friend who can watch any of his films apart from The Thing, most say they're too slow (Which I can... kinda get if someone's been raised on pure action movies or shitty horror films), but that's part of the charm, something like They Live, you get a real feel for Roddy Piper's character, you get a sense of what his life is like and then the sunglasses come into play.

I should seriously search out some of the Lumet films I've never saw, does anyone know if his version of Murder On The Orient Express (the one with Albert Finney and Sean Connery) is any good?

HOLY MOTHER OF SHIT, looking on IMDB Lumet directed a TV Movie adaption of Rashomon (FUCKING RASHOMON) in 1960, sadly it doesn't appear to have been recorded, I would have done horrific things to see that.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Murder On The Orient is not something i will call classic or excellent but is good in his own merits, like the majority of Lumet's work

I'm one of the few people who believe that the work of Carpenter from the 90's is on par with his work in the 80's, in fact i love Vampires, Escape From L.A., In The Mouth Of Madness (probably the greatest horror movies from the 90's) and Prince Of Darkness.

Most of his work is just Westerns with the aspect of an horror or a fantastic movie and boy the man knows how to end a fucking film.

The Thing is probably the most well known and recognized from his movies, with all the Justice, but i have never understand why They Live, Big Troubles in Little China, In The Mouth Of Madness, The Fog, Prince Of Darkness or my favorite Assault On Precinct 13 can get the same fame and critical aclaim that Halloween or Escape From New York specially when all of them are similar movies, I can't see too much differences between Characters like Napoleon Wilson or Snake Plissken.

Also, the man is a fucking music genius

Nic Cage is really good in Leaving Las Vegas. It's not a movie I think I'll be watching over again anytime soon as it's a pretty depressing movie.

Mariska Hargitay is in it, too.

I'm not a huge Will Ferrell fan (Anchorman is the most OVERRATED fucking movie ever, come at me) but I loved The Other Guys. The constant badgering of Eva Mendes being married to Ferrell by Wahlberg, the TLC stuff with Keaton/the scene at Bed, Bath & Beyond about the rapist and Rock/SLJ on the roof especially had me laughing for like 5 minutes straight.

Nic Cage can do crazy and get high praise. Nic cage can do any other role and get a lot of money for it. that sums up Nic Cage.

Leaving Las Vegas, Adaptation, Bad Lieutenant, Kickass, Matchstick Men, Snake eyes, all his craziest and best roles I felt. he has other good movies, yes, but I liked him in these.

I take pleasure in gutting you BOY!
