I recently watched Man on the Moon, the Andy Kaufman biopic, for the second time and thoroughly enjoyed it for the second time.

There you found my most loathed genre. The biopic.

If you ever hear me say I don't hate one. You should probably check it out.

If I rave about one, it is probably a feat of superhuman effort.

Marvel's: The Avengers - Thought with Whedon writing and directing, he might be able to make something out of one of my least favorite genres: the Superhero Team genre. Pretty boring. Didn't care for much of anything in the film. And I keep asking, how does Gwyneth Paltrow ever get any role in film. Then I remember she is Hollywood royalty.

Downy and Ruffalo do the impossible and actually pull off performances which border on real acting. How such a thing occurs in this train wreck of boredom, I dunno. Wait till someone hands you the DVD and you have nothing else to do.
Seems rather unique among the opinions of the movie I've heard. Did the action sequences not do it for you?

I gave Moon a rewatch. I loved it once more. Sam Rockwell and Duncan Jones are fantastic.

I hear ya. The tomato says its awesome. I love Whedon.

Action? I've seen a lot of action films. There really ain't much to it after a few dozen times without a decent story or dialog or acting.

I went to the film with slight optimism. And the solution to the end of the world? Really? Deus ex machina?

Joss should at least know how to do that a little better, if he is unable to avoid it.


I suppose I too would have experienced my fill of mindless action if I'd been so fortunate as to experience the 80s. Still, dialog was typical Whedon quality, and acting was good. To each his own I guess.

I won't get into the ideology of the film, which was repugnant at best, if instructive.

You don't need the 80s, I am not sure I experienced them myself. Just get a decade or so of mindless action. Interestingly, the "bigger" and "greater" the sequences have become the less compelling they have become.

It is sorta like the last half of King Lear or so. Try pulling off a production of that easily become monotony of shrill madness. Which is one the many reasons why I think Ran is simply a work of directorial and acting genius.

The Pianist is an amazing movie; I first watched it probably five years ago, and I think I've seen it four times since then.

Did you ever get onto my recommendation of Tucker and Dale v. Evil, Asteriktos?

Just watched this.  Overall impressions...

Short: Good movie. I'll buy it on DVD at some point.

Long: I found the beginning sort of awkward, just because I wasn't sure what kind of movie it was. Then the scene at the store where Dale tries to talk to the kids and laughs happened, which was great. From then on, for about the next 45 minutes, I thought it was hilarious. Unfortunately, at some point, I did start to lose interest. I think about the time the college kids caught the dog. Or when the fingers were cut off. Somewhere in there. After that I thought it was ok, but really dragged at times. Then again I like the first half of movies more than the second half* in a ton of horror movies, even ones I really love. Still, overall, like I said, I enjoyed it enough that I'll buy it on DVD so I can watch it every once in a while.

Thanks for the recommendation! Smiley

Watched nbt - Never Been Thawed last night. It's supposed to be about people who collect tv dinners and obssess over them, and that's part of it, but a larger portion of the movie is poking fun at certain elements of Christianity in America.

I like how I can tell it's a Wes Anderson movie on the strength of seeing one preview without the words "A Wes Anderson" film being anywhere near it.

I had heard that Ted is hilarious. And it has Mila Kunis in it! But it's Seth McFarlane, so it was filled with his terrible comedy (including your fair share of self righteous religion-bashing).

I saw the director's cut of Blade Runner.

The only way to see Blade Runner is the Final Cut on Blu-Ray. Superb, it's Ridley's best film. That film is so multi-layered and deep that one viewing doesn't do it justice. It gets a little slow with the romance bit, but still love it.

BTW picked up these four tonight. Finally got Wire on DVD.



Raging Bull was $7.50
Taxi Driver was $10.00
Godfather Collection $30
Wire Season One $20

I had BB price match and two were on sale.

Awesome deals.

I desperately need Vertigo by Hitchcock on Blu-Ray. Universal is coming out with a Masterpiece collection of 14 of his films in October, but I hope to see it release individually. With both the restoration versions and not.

Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Godfather are all worthy of their acclaim. Disturbing movies that ring authentic on every level. I haven't seen The Wire, only a few brief pieces here and there. I may decide to give it a chance, but from a cursory glance it seems too cliched and spurious for my tastes. Perhaps it's because I grew up in the ATL and lived that lifestyle for so many years that I recognize the phoniness of it. But then again, I love The Sopranos, which I might think overplayed if I were Italian and grew up in New Jersey.

Dude, The Wire is the greatest TV show ever. It's not your typical crime show either. It's better than the Sopranos, and I loved the Sopranos. The first season is a little slow at first, there's just such an amazing level of detail in this show.

Just be warned it is a difficult show to follow.

It was good. Slooow, but it worked well that way. It's also the second film by Sofia Coppola that I've

Lost in Translation. Finally finished the entire film after nearly 5 years of procrastination.  Smiley
How did you like it?

The Triplets of Belleville. Pretty funny and gorgeously animated. I like to think Chuck Jones would have liked this one, especially the opening scene.

I'm definitely going to check out The Illusionist and Sylvain Chomet's other stuff once I have the scratch.

I couldn't get into "Triplets"... I found it unbearably dreary, almost soulless. I enjoyed "Illusionist" more but at the end I felt the same way.
