The concept there is brilliant I have to say. Its...the execution. That's the problem for me. Something about it interests me, I watch it, and it falls flat.
Haha I did notice that and resisted the urge to comment back with some verbal abuse. Nah, I'm kidding. I guess the thing I love most about The Crow is the atmosphere it creates throughout, and The Crow himself is just a downright cool character. I always thought of the film as a sort of horror Batman, though it's not really a horror but it was definitely darker than the Batman films were at the time. Proyas probably took a little influence from Burton's Batman though.

The "Wicker" stuff seemed to turn people off from it based on some reviews i've seen, but if you pay attention to the symbolism from the start, it builds up to that and makes alot of sense. This is one of those movies that makes you want to watch it a second time, not just due to the confusion, but to see how everything connects once you know the outcome.
Thanks, I totally agree about a second viewing. I love films that ask questions but don't necessarily give you direct answers and almost force you to go back and sift through everything again to try and piece it all together. Even if the answers are given, going back through the film and seeing those points where you now realize how everything is connected. That's definitely something to be found it re-watches of Kill List.

It was a comic too. Connection is logical. Draven falls under that anti-hero role Batman has shown himself. Only this hero (Crow) has the full intent on killing as his only goal. Well, that and reuniting a family together. I'm willing to give it one more chance and maybe I'll warm back up to it. I hate not liking the movie much but being interested in the character & premise so much. It's weird being on both sides of the fence.

Yeah never got around to reading the comic for some reason. I think the Crow character is one of the main reasons people are drawn to the film like you suggested, he's got that unique look especially. The plot itself is nothing particularly unique but it's more about the themes and symbolism really. I actually didn't really like the film the first time I watched it either, though that was when I was about 8 years old after I was a huge Sting fan during the end of WCW. When I found out his look was modeled on The Crow I sought it out and watched it but was clearly too young to appreciate it properly. After re-watching it years later and more it obviously grew on me big time.

And those thread title names are awesome.

Look is iconic, tbhayley. You know The Crow - you know the look. I was a bit of the opposite: enjoyed it as a kid, didn't so much when I got older. To be fair, I did watch it last while with friends. That could have taken me out of it to appreciate some portions of the flick. Doesn't matter. At this point I'm totally going to view it again. Form that final opinion on it and such. Get a grasp of the symbolism for it truly speaks to. Not so much everything just on the surface.

I remember liking Sting more than usual in '96 - '97 b/c he was taking a page from The Crow's book.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part III

Just saw the trailer for Simon Pegg's and Nick Frosts new movie The Worlds End, Looks great. Both Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz were brilliant movies.

I remember watching a review of that movie by the Nostalgia Critic at a friends house, it just looked so bad. So he downloaded it and we watched it that same night. Since then I've seen it three more times(Don't ask!). It literally is amazing how bad it is, how any one gave the guy money to make it I'll never know.

I actually enjoy Few Dollars... more than the other two. Clint and Cleef teaming up is just a dream come true, nothing beats it for me. But I agree with Die Hard 3 being better than 2. The first and third are my favourite, don't care about 2 or 4. Also think the third BttF is better than the second, doesn't try and chuck as much in as the second does. Also Last Crusade is better than Temple of Doom even though I loved that movie as a kid.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part III

I've seen people say they like For a Few Dollars More the best out of the trilogy, and I just in no way can agree with that personally. GBU is just an immense mix of characters, tension, drama, music, cinematography, editing and sound. Everything is incredible in that film and it all just works perfectly. Honestly consider it to be a top 3 movie ever, that's how much I love it.
