Deadwood down under.


The pace is a bit slow but I really liked this movie. Written by Nick Cave of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

I enjoyed it, though I don't think it's quite at the level of Oldboy. Then again, what is?

I like how Park Chan-Wook uses many of the same actors in his films, even if only for a cameo.

Have you seen Sympathy For Mr Vengence?
It's another Park Chan-Wook movie. I'd rank it right up there w/Oldboy

I'd rank it near Oldboy, but I really hate the last 10 minutes. I was surprised I ended up thinking Oldboy was flawless after Mr. Vengeance.

chronicles of narnia: the lion, the witch & the waredrobe

As much as I was lead to believe the christian right were shoveling the uber-funds into pressing
some mass conversion with the release of this film (ex. I loved it. It was better than 'CATS'. I'm going to see it again and again..) I was downright befuddled by just how meaningful this could really possibly be.

Thus far it seems that the CGI effects are up to par and while this rides on the coat tails of two other successful series. I can't say it was foul nor beating me over the head into submission.
Merely entertaining but hardly that impressive in comparison to the other recent fantasy epics.

I was hoping to find some Michael Medved quote from a review but I don't even know if he reviews movies anymore. I'm sure he would object to the sharp sticks.. :rolleyes:

Supposedly the producers are going to make a trilogy to complete the true arc of C.S. Lewis' story. Stay tuned for more metaphorical Christianity.

Trilogy? They're going to mashup the other six books into two films?

Yeah, I rented that after seeing Oldboy earlier this year. I enjoyed it -- maybe moreso than Lady Vengeance -- but not nearly as much as Oldboy.

Not a rental-- it was on WYCC last night, and since I'd never seen it, I watched it. Pretty cornball stuff, but entertaining. Never knew you could kill a man from 200 yards just by flicking a handgun and firing a blank.

Never seen this one either. Good times. Welles is a little over the top when he says "Old Man" and "Dear Fellow" when he addresses Joesph Cotton but that's the way it goes. The ending shot is gorgeous.

Haha. I love that "old man" shit.

Went to our Landmark theater here with a coworker. I had a personal first. I was heckled.

One of my bad habits is that I tend to laugh during movies at inappropriate times, usually at stuff I think is ridiculously cheeseball (ex. Steve Martin pouring out his heart for the 27th time in Shop Girl). Typically, I just get dirty looks on the way out from people who were taking the movie seriously.

But not this time.

When Ed Norton calls in a gang of identical Chinese magicians as backup, yeah, that crap is so bad it's hilarious. I swear to God that like a half dozen cookie cutter dudes come sweeping out of a wagon and into the back of his theater. ANCIENT CHINESE SECRET...LIKE CALGONE! Oh man, I just busted up. And then 30 seconds later this dude behind us starts mocking my laugh to impress the women he's with. Ed Norton was avenged. Then I see him after the movie and it's not a teenager but a 40 year old frumpy dude. Haha. It's just like the movie's tag line sez. NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS!

Even Paul Giamatti couldn't save this one. Ed Norton is so over. The other ridiculous thing is that the movie takes great pains to point to scientific explanations for the movie's magic tricks. But the stupid things are all made with CGI.

Love that film. The best of its kind.

The scene where the bomb goes off in the ocean - and winds up being a bigger blast than anyone anticipated - is awesome.

Wanna see something even scarier? Watch how the American Government sold the idea of the bomb to the American Public thru a fantastic propaganda machine in:

Posted Image

What's so damn scary about this is the fact that for all it's obviousness, for all it's blatant understating of the dangers of the bomb - it worked. People believed in "duck and cover" thinking. And the pop culture jumped on board with some of the most bizarre lyrics ever recorded (Bill Haley singing about being the only guy left in a town after the war, surrounded by 13 women is my personal favorite).

Check it out. I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this one.
