Yes, my favorite piece of dialog was:

Quote
Rhonda Deane: All I care about is getting out of the Vista View apartments, because there ain't no "vista", there ain't no "view", and there certainly ain't no vista of no view.

Reminded me of the project I lived in.


Wonderful documentary. One of the best ever.

so the modernist Jesuit  Priest who went to medical school didnt believe in demonic possession. But there are two or three scenes of him praying over the Eucharist... So did he believe in the real presence of the Lord or not? And if he did believe in the real presence how was it so hard to beleive in the existence of demons ?.............. Just saying

TBH it can be argued that Hoop Dreams isn't a doc in the truest sense. It really transcends into a different genre completely.

Probably the same with the other two I mentioned. Have you seen either of them?

I'm a huge Ali fan, so yes. Since you reminded me of MOW, I'll see if Netflix has it otherwise I'll just rent it from amazon.com

I've heard of it throughout the years but never seen it. So this and Bob Roberts tomorrow, nice.

Hey norm, I'm gonna watch that conservative mockumentary tonight but since I was reading something Zizek wrote recently...

Do you think he is more of a real conservative than these American cons?

I think he is at heart especially when it comes to relationships and dating IMO.

Maybe I'm off the mark.

He can be entertaining in his own clownish manner when he performs live - more so than when writing. I figure Relationships & Dating would be the next best thing in his Pervert's trilogy, after Cinema and Ideology. Since he's into marketing himself and all that.

lol this stupid Yahoo article talking about James Cameron being spread too thin on the Avatar universe, by writing three screenplays for the sequels and directing.

Tough? The original script for Avatar could be written by a 4th grader. He could knock back 3 scripts in a few weeks.

Cameron is an egomaniac. His failed marriages and personality on set have proven how insufferable he is.

Aliens truly a terrible film. Eye-rolling. Cringed the whole way through.

Titanic had just the right balance, and the film I thought was brilliantly storyboarded, it just had a natural arc to it.

As much as I deride Avatar, and as much as I chuckle at my signature, I still found much pleasure in the film. It is overly smooth yes, but credit to Cameron for transporting me to Pandora. Even on Blu-Ray.

I don't know how Cameron dodged the uncanny valley when it came to the alien love affair, it worked.

He has a designer's eye for sure, just doesn't have the writing chops to match. Presentation wise I can't think of anyone better, especially on such a huge budget. Avatar could have been so overwrought, but it wasn't. I don't think Cameron has the competency to do so, but we are left thankfully with some restraint that doesn't become pretentious.

Once Bitten

Haven't seen this in years. Cornier than I remember, which I mean in the best possible way. The people who put the blurb on Netflix regarding what the movie is about got the plot wrong, but you can't really expect them to watch a movie they're describing, right?  Roll Eyes  Anyway, an enjoyable way to avoid going to sleep...

Extracted, on Netflix. Sci-fi thing about a guy who can inhabit the memories of another person... and saying anything else I guess would be spoiling it. Some negative reviews at Rotten Tomatoes; some positive reviews at the wiki page. A couple times I considered turning it off early on, but stuck with it, and ended up enjoying it.

The book is better, enough said.

Movie adaptations of books are not supposed to replace the books, any more than illustrations in a book are supposed to replaced the text. Imagine someone reading an illuminated gospel and saying, "the illuminations are cool, but I like the text better."

A good movie can capture the essence of a book, Ender's game doesn't. I understand you can't film everything, so you either make it into two movies (which i think might have worked out better for Ender's game) or don't film it at all.

Fill the Void

"Fill the Void was written and directed by Rama Burshtein, who, in the course of its production, became the first Orthodox Jewish woman to direct a film intended to be viewed outside of the Orthodox community."
