Didn't like this as much as Life Aquatic of Rushmore but still classic Wes Anderson, very funny.



For me...

Rushmore > The Royal Tenenbaums > The Life Aquatic


But The Life Aquatic soundtrack makes up for any bit of disappointment the movie might have left me with (and I didn't hate it whatsoever).

And now, some highlights from the last week or so of Insomniac Theater:

Pretty spectacular all around, and shames Ray in just about every significant category. Can't believe this got squeezed out by effing Crash for a nomination.

Holy Shit! has anyone else seen the Special Edition of this movie? It's totally different from the mainstream release. There is a full half hour tacked on to the end of the film. It blew me away.


Love "The Abyss". I take it the extra half hour gives more insight into the aliens?

Right on, slackie my boy. I was either tapping my feet or choking back tears through most of this. I think Joaquin wins in many other years- especially over Foxx last year.

I've disagreed with that in several other places already. I saw all the Oscar nominated live-action shorts this afternoon. The National Archives had a free screening, which was cool. Cashback, Our Time is Up (with Kevin Pollack!) and the Icelandic one were great. Six shooter is woeful nihilistic British gun porn and the german one must have somehow been lost in translation because it didn't make no god damn sense.

Hell yes, more than I expected. You get a completely different movie with the extra footage. I won't tell ya, cuz it'll spoil the whole thing. But if you ever get the urge to revisit this film, please rent the special edition. The original cut left something to be desired at the end. This one has resolution, albeit an outlandish one.

Check out Jean Pierre Melville's films if you like the crime and heist genre at all. He was pre new wave, but a master of his own style, more mature than many of the subsequent French auteurs. This one and Le Cercle Rouge (the Red Circle) are both really good. Criterion is doing a great job reissuing these.

He was a prime influence on the New Wave. Godard gave him a small part in Breathless.

I just IMDB'd Alain Delon's (actor in Le Samourai) Bio and it says he's the one on the cover of The Smith's Queen is Dead. That doesn't look a thing like him.

an hour and a half though this, pretty good so far, not the best acting though.

I love Scarlett... and clearly Bill Murray too

Just picked this up, expecting good things. Focus features doesn't let me down that often.

holy crap--i just watched this yesterday. Some pretty phenomenal storytelling and filmmaking early on, but kinda falls apart about 2/3's in. Really loved the split screen sequence.

i tivo'd it last week and finished it yesterday. the movie picked up when victor was describing his trip to europe, then quickly fizzled again. oh well. not a bad way to spend two hours.

I don't know why I'm bothering to mention this thing at all much less why I stayed up watching it last night. It's not really good nor would I describe it as being valid for anything except Joan Cusack has a couple of good lines in it.

With the whole 2 jobs thing, I really haven't had much time to sit and watch much of anything except episodes of:

Mock me if you must, but Mr. Roark is a total badass. I want that suit.

And I can't believe the people associated with the 80's Twilight Zone. Not just in front of the camera, but the talent behind the scenes is unreal. There's oodles of commentaries by Wes Craven, Harlan Ellison and more - which is cool with me. And even tho the episodes could be hit or miss, they're almost always centered around a truly fascinating concept, which sparks some fascinating conversations with my friends and family after the credits roll.
