Rush was OK. One of the few times where I would have preferred to have not watched it in the theatre. Too loud for me. But that was to be expected. Ron Howard doesn't seem to know how to make a bad movie, and this was another good one. Not his best, but still worth watching.

Awaiting the reviews for Carrie. The trailer looks good, but you never know. It would be hard to top the original, but I'd like to see it if it gets good ratings from the critics. "Rotten Tomatoes" usually steers me in the right direction.

After all these years I finally watched Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.

Really overrated.

I watched this really terrible werewolf movie because the moon was pretty on the way back to my dorm. It's set in a combination of Romania and the Old West. Fun stuff.

East of Eden.  Still not sure what to make of it, especially the ending.

Started the Halloween / Kubrick fest.

The Shining.

Wow, didn't realize Kubrik framed everything for 1.66 although nearly everything was shown in 1.85. He evidently framed for the 1.85 as well, but was looking in 1.66.

In any case, a fantastic film. Holds up over time for sure.

Actually a pretty interesting book.

What makes Aliens for me is not the script, but the people. Because Ripley kicks some serious hiney. Because the chemistry between Ripley and Newt works wonders. Because Burke is shamefully underrated in the slimester gallery. Because Hicks is all the eye candy we girls needed. Because Bishop is all-around awesome. You couldn't get such a gathering today, neither with the original people nor with a newer generation.
I watched all of the Aliens movies in one weekend this summer. First time I had ever seen them.

I can't recall Kubrick making a bad film.

And you know the blu ray release of 2001 got the aspect ratio finally right.

I thought Eyes Wide Shut was not very good. BTW the music during the swing party ritual is basically Romanian Byzantine chant played backwards.

Also after watching Clockwork Orange in 5th grade I started singing "Singing in the Rain" while bullying kids in the playground. I'm a horrible person.

I agree. Eyes Wide Shut was subpar.

Psycho

The scene in the parlor was brilliant as was Perkins performance.

Too bad they don't make them like this anymore . . .

Actually, this film is a great example of how much of the brilliance in older cinema is simply unarticulated as well as it could have been due to the language of film not being fully understood even by some its most masterful speakers.

Watch this for the parlor scene alone.

Hey buddy, she doesn't want to change her name and she is getting married this weekend. Can you believe it?? I'd change mine in a heartbeat if I knew I was attatched to that film.

I wanted to say that when she told everbody she wasn't changing her name. Although it would have been good, I'm still saving this morsel of a fact for when I come up with something really genius.

And the only thing worse than a American woman not taking a man's name is hyphenating it and the only thing worse than that is using her maiden name as her middle name and the only thing worse than that is a man beginning to consider any of the above himself.

LOL!! Someone brought up the fact if she would hyphenate it, but she said no cause it would be too hard on her children when they go to school.

Yeah I know a teacher trying to do attendance would surely be a real nightmare...

:D

My question was going to be "Which one?" but that struck me as a bit irreverent to the original, so I edited it to "Original?"

But the remake was really very good too. :)

But seriously, orthonorm...


Have you seen Hoop Dreams yet?

Yes, my favorite piece of dialog was:

Reminded me of the project I lived in.

Just saw La grande bellezza. Saturated with Fellini.

Has one hilarious "ecumenical" scene - a congregation of bishops, cardinals, monks and nuns, Christians and Buddhists, pay homage to "La Santa" - a decrepit old nun, inspired by Mother Theresa. An Orthodox bishop approaches to kiss her hand and instantly drops dead (too much emotion, rather than God's retribution). The Saint sits high up a throne and balances her feet like a schoolgirl. After the Coptic abbuna pays his homage, one of her flip-flops drops - which everybody views like an omen.   

In another scene, a young leftist artist performs on an improvised stage next to an aqueduct: nude (except for the red flag with hammer sickle tattooed on her, well, womb), she runs and bangs her head against a wall, only to declare: Io non mi amo!   

Beautiful images from Rome and a very nice soundtrack: Pärt, Martynov, Tavener. Lots of sensuality, too - but no more than Fellini's more racy films.

Can you shop your pursing baby face with some cartoonish tears? Throw a rattle and bonnet into the mix as well.

Thanks.

Wouldn't the same effect be achieved if I wore pink fuzzy brown Nikes?
