Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Has 30 Days Of Night been mentioned in the vampire talk? Need to watch that again but I remember liking it.

It really isn't. Or what I do happen to recall as best as possible, felt like a run of the mill poor Eurosleaze Horror, and not very dreamy like the vast majority of what Rollin tends to apply among his films. Could have easily just been a paycheck piece for him.

Like I think of this, then compare to say so many other Italian Zombie films and it's just a big case of what could have been, than what actually is.

@Arya Dark ; @Obfuscation ;

San Francisco's Castro Theatre tomorrow night:

Gloria by John Cassavetes and Jackie Brown by Quentin Tarantino.

Castro Theatre the next evening:

Bande part by Jean-Luc Godard and Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

Think I know where I will be Thursday and Friday nights.
MrMister and Arya Dark like this.

Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Jackie Brown & a Godard film would have been my ideal combo there.

I'm still kind of thinking of when The Graduate was shown in theaters here some months ago. I own it on blu ray, but I mean, a theater showing for that favorite would be kind of cool. Especially if I was one of the few people that actually was in there. Oh gosh, if I had it all to myself, that'll be the ticket.

Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

The one film I want to see more than any on the big screen is Blade Runner.

Gloria and Jackie Brown is an awesome double bill, probably even more than Bande a part and Pulp Fiction. Although Bande a part might be the one I'd love to see the most just for the cafe scene.

Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Haven't liked anything by Bong Joon-ho thus far, so I'm lukewarm.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire is the Cannes specific film I'm wanting to see most. (say, excluding some variables by directors I'm already a fan of; Jarmusch, Malick, Dolan)

Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Actually went into it blind, and it completely blew me away. The eccentric undertones are always there, but the way it transitions from something so grounded at first to WAIT WHAT THE FUCK over the course of two hours is fucking beautiful. Legit went from laughing out loud at the randomest moments to being on the edge of my seat right after. Also for a black comedy (hard to even categorize it as just that tbh), this took me back to In Bruges in terms of how tight the plot and its pacing was. And the striking use of architecture, infact the cinematography of it as a whole really, really made me wish we got some of these films at the movies here.

Probably my favorite film this year so far.
