International Eye Candy: SAMURAI PRINCESS, ONECHANBARA, MOTHER And Much More!

International Eye Candy April 15th, 2009 It may have only been two weeks since the last installment of International Eye Candy, but what a two weeks. There have been enough major films releasing trailers to fill a regular year, so much so that it's no wonder there are rumblings out of Cannes that programmers are afraid they're going to have to turn away some major names simply because there's not enough room. Two of the weeks biggest - Johnnie To's VENGEANCE and Lars Von Trier's ANTICHRIST have already drawn the attention of Harry and Co on the main page here but there's more. Oh, yes. There's more. Park Chan-Wook! Bong Joon-Ho! Nicolas Refn! The latest from the director of TOKYO GORE POLICE! There's a whole lot going opn out there and now is the time for our regular trawl through the pages of Twitch for a look at the best of it. What the hell, let's start with the pulp and work our way up to the serious stuff. And when it comes to pulp nobody does it better - or more - than the Japanese. The original ONECHANBARA - adapted from a video game of the same name - was built around a simple premise: Put a hot girl in a bikini (and cowboy hat), give her a sword, and put her to work battling zombie hordes and geeky men will pay good money to watch. Which is exactly what happened. And enough geeky men paid enough money to justify the making of a sequel and so ONECHANBARA VORTEX is now on the way. More zombies. More splatter. And, most importantly, more bikini. Check the ONECHANBARA VORTEX trailer here As pulpy as ONECHANBARA may be, however, when it comes to Japanese splatter Yoshi Nishimura is the undisputed king. He did the effects work on MACHINE GIRL. He directed and did the effects for TOKYO GORE POLICE. And now he's producing - and doing effects - for SAMURAI PRINCESS, the directorial debut of his TOKYO GORE screen writer. What's he got up his sleeve this time? Scissor legs, flying chainsaws, breast grenades and a guy punched so hard that his skeleton pops right out of his body. And what would a Nishimura film be without gallon after gallon of blood? Check the SAMURAI PRINCESS trailer here For our final piece of pulp we move a little closer to home with Canuck writer-director Lee Demarbre's tribute to the films of Herschell Gordon Lewis, SMASH CUT. Lewis himself has a significant role in this one, horror icon David Hess plays the lead, Michael Berryman has a key support role and porn starlet Sasha Grey stars in what I believe is her first non-porn role. This is all bright colors, extreme angles and wildly over the top camp. Find the SMASH CUT trailer here We now call and end to our non-stop string of films starring women known for the propensity for nudity - yes, the female leads in both of the Japanese films share the same career path as Sasha Grey - and instead present to you Scandinavian semen. All class here at International Eye Candy. All class. You may not know director Peder Pederson by name but I can virtually guarantee that you've seen his work thanks to a string of high profile television commercials, Indiana Jones adventures animated in Lego and a music video resume that includes Aqua's Barbie Girl. This? A feature length sex comedy whose title translates to WHITE GOLD. You can work it out from there. Find the WHITE GOLD here And now we leave the sex behind entirely - I think - and head to Mexico for a film that I might actually be able to watch with my mother. New from the director of THE CRIME OF FATHER AMARO is BACKYARD, a thriller based on a true south-of-the-border serial killer case. Jimmy Smits plays a key role - surprised he hasn't featured in more recent Mexican film, actually - but the real star here is the oppressive environment created by director Carlos Carrera. Very creepy. Very real. Very effective. Find the BACKYARD trailer here People have been declaring independent Japanese animator Makoto Shinkai (THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS) the next Miyazaki pretty much from the day he appeared on the scene and I hereby declare CENCOROLL director Atsuya Uki the next Makoto Shinkai. Here's the story. A few years back Uki published a one-shot manga titled AMON GAME, the story of a boy with a giant pet monster, that went one to win some significant manga awards in Japan. And Uki decided that he liked the story so much that he wanted to make an animated version of it, so that's what he did. All. By. Himself. This is a one man show here and it is DAMN impressive. Find a pair of CENCOROLL trailers here From the unknown to the rising star, we move on now to Mamoru Hosoda and his upcoming feature SUMMER WARS. Who is Hosoda? He's the guy who, a few years ago, directed THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME and had the stones to release it head to head with Studio Ghibli's A WIZARD OF EARTHSEA - a film with a monstrous publicity budget, directed by the son of legendary director Hayao Miyazaki. Observers figured that Hosoda's film was destined to die an ignoble death, trampled into the ground by the Ghibli juggernaut, but the exact opposite happened. GIRL built a huge buzz via word of mouth, audiences grew steadily, and by the time all was said and done Hosoda's film came out of the head to head combat as the clear winner. And a new star was born. SUMMER WARS reunites all the kep minds behind THE GIRL WHO LEAPT THROUGH TIME and gives them better resources to acheive their goals. Details are sketchy - it's some sort of magical adventure story but little else has been said - but very clearly Hosoda's stuff. Only two films in and the man's already got a clear, distinct style. Impressive. Find the SUMMER WARS trailer here One more from Japan here - this being a very Asian-focused edition of the IEC - in the form of Miki Satoshi's INSTANT NUMA. Miki is a hugely popular television director in Japan who has been steadily pushing into the feature film world over the past several years with his most recent film - ADRIFT IN TOKYO, starring Jo Odagiri - ranking in my mind as an absolute masterpiece. It's full of gently absurd humor and detailed characer work and seems to me to be the work of a man who has just figured out exactly who he is and what he's good at and has the good sense to cast good actors and let them do their jobs. And this new one looks like more of the same. It's the story of a laid off office worker who inherits an antique warehouse and while the synopsis doesn't sound like much I need only remind myself that ADRIFT is nothing more than the story of two men going for a very long walk to realize plot isn't the point when Miki's on his game. The road is more important than the destination and the just-released trailer for this looks totally in line with his best stuff. Find the INSTANT NUMA trailer here Vikings. Refn. I am sooooooo there. The film is VALHALLA RISING, the new viking epic from Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of the stunning PUSHER films and recent Sundance hit BRONSON. It stars Mads Mikkelsen, probably the best character actor of his generation. And, somehow, despite being worlds removed from the urban grit of PUSHER, and every other film he's ever made, this looks to be instantly recognizable, vintage Refn. Which is to say genius. Find the VALHALLA RISING trailer here Somehow it has taken only three feature films for Korea's Bong Joon-Ho to firmly establish himself in my mind as one of the very best film makers in the entire world today. You probably know him as the director of hit monster picture THE HOST but his prior work - true crime picture MEMORIES OF MURDER and black comedy BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE - are every bit as impressive. And with his upcoming film - titled simply MOTHER - Bong seems to be taking a quick breather, a return to "small film" territory after the massive production of THE HOST and before the even bigger SNOW TRAIN which he'll direct with OLDBOY's Park Chan-Wook producing. Like MEMORIES this is a crime thriller from an unusual perspective, in this case the story of a woman well past middle age struggling to prove that her mentally disabled son did not commit the crime he was pressured into confessing to. We've run an early - and very scanty when it comes to footage - teaser for this one before but now the first proper trailer has come out with a first proper look at proceedings. Film of the year? Might be ... Find the MOTHER trailer here If Bong's new film fails to dominate the Korean box office this year the most likely candidate to keep it from doing so is this: future collaborator Park Chan-Wook's vampire picture THIRST. The first trailer for this one was a solid tease, a tease followed soon after by a leaked trailer that seemed a little muddled and was followed wherever it went witha flurry of cease and desist notices requiring people to take it down. Whoopsie! Turns out that one was an unfinished piece, prepared for internal use and not at all ready to be let out in to public. The one they released a few days later? That was the finished, public version and DAMN does it look good. Disappointed by Park's foray into romantic comedy with I'M A CYBORG AND THAT'S OKAY? Well, the master's back, kids. The master's back. Find the new THIRST trailer here

    This is a good episode of Twitch

    by D.Vader

    Bong Joon Jo, Park Chan Wook, a sex film called "White Gold", a Japanese flick called "Samurai Princess"? Awesome. <p> I watched "Machine Girl" finally a few months ago after it sat on my shelf for months. I wasn't as impressed as I'd hoped I'd be. It'd be better if I wasn't alone and sober.

  • April 15, 2009, 11:12 p.m. CST

    And VIKINGS!

    by D.Vader

    Totally forgot about that. Valhalla Rising sounds awesome. Trailer didn't do as much for me as the synopsis did, but I'm excited for it. I'd rather the vikings be, ya know, followers of Odin instead of what looks to be Crusaders heading for Jerusalem. But ah well. <p> We can't have our vikings always fighting native americans or werewolves.

    "Thirst" trailer music

    by D.Vader

    Anyone know where that music is from? Damn Chan Wook Park, he knows how to pick good music, whether its classical or from his composer. I love the strings composition in "OldBoy". Don't know what was original and what wasn't. <p> But I really like the music in the trailer for "Thirst". I'd love to know if its from the movie or if its something previously released. TWITCH! Can you help? Do you know or have any idea how to find out?

    Valhalla Rising should be spectacular

    by StraightToHell

    Refn is really one of the best directors of his generation working today. The Pusher trilogy knocked me on my ass the first time I watched it. Really, a remarkable piece of work. Like a genius child of Scorsese and Michael Mann. Especially Mann. Visually, the second and third Pusher movies owe a great deal to Mann’s unique visual style, but Refn completely makes it his own without simply copying Mann. This is what great art should be. Borrowing something from older masters and taking it to new heights. I think that the whole wedding “celebration” scene in the second Pusher film, where Mikkelsen is watching in horror as his family cuts lose while an infant sleeps on the floor, is astonishing both visually and emotionally. I also loved Bleeder and Fear X is an odd little gem. So far Refn hasn’t made a misstep. Dying to see Bronson and Valhalla Rising. I highly recommend The Gambler, the documentary on the making of the second and third Pusher films, that’s included on the DVD set of the trilogy. It’s really right up there with Burden of Dreams and Hearts of Darkness, as one of the best documentaries about an artist teetering on the edge of a personal and financial abyss, only to snatch greatness from the jaws of defeat.

    Toasted cheese sandwiches are indeed addictive. <p>I've just spent an hour standing on a fucking tube platform staring at the back of some pricks head. Fuck london. Fuck the tube. Incompetent bastards.

    I watched The Uninvited last night

    by Droid

    Not very good. And there's a 'twist' thats fucking stupid. Remember 'Adaptation' and the screeplay that Donald Kaufman wrote? Well, that's essentially the 'twist', but it's a girl instead of a cop. It was a joke in Adaptation and it's a fucking joke in this. <p>I do have a thing for Elizabeth Banks though. <p>And Hollywood really needs to stop remaking japanese horror flicks. They ALL turn out shithouse.

  • April 17, 2009, 4:27 a.m. CST

    Also watched 24

    by Droid

    And it finally provided the twist I have been waiting for all season. It's been a bit hit and miss this year, but I think the last 6 episodes are going to be pretty good.

    Hey, droid

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Maybe you know this, but I will pass it on as a hard earned lesson anyway: Do not put chopped onion into your toasted cheese sandwiches. I tried this the other day (for a little variety) and it turns out chooped onions become hotter than the sun after a particularly hot day in the sun when toasted. And those little fuckers will leap free from your sandwich and burn the shit out of your chin area. They don't care, they just burn!

Oh, well. He's probably ill (he's usually ill). Get well soon, Jarv.<p>Cheers, droid. Enjoy your weekend.

    by Mavra Chang

    That film rocked! I want to see "Thirst" more than ever now, but no dissing on "I'm a Cyborg and That's OK". C'mon, man! Im Su-jeong did a fantastic job in that movie. <p> Unbelievable! Next he'll be dissing "Machine Girl". <p> To battle! <p> Ha ha!

    Hi Wolf

    by Mavra Chang

    I think it was the over-the-top gore and action that made me love it so much. Could be a female thing, since we don't get a lot of good movies like that (I don't count Jolie's stuff...I'm neutral on her work). I loaned the movie to some of my friends. The guys were unimpressed and the women loved it.

  • April 17, 2009, 7:25 a.m. CST

    I dunno, I like the idea of 2 movies

    by D.Vader

    Sure, it changes the intent of the Hobbit, making it no longer just about Bilbo by expanding the universe and placing the story in its larger context as far as LOTR is concerned. <p> I for one applaud this idea far more than I did the idea of movie 2 being a made-up link between films. <p> Also, I really like the idea of getting to see the White Council (including Radagast the Brown!!!) and Gandalf going into the dungeons of Dol Goldur. I once had a dream about that neglected story of "the Hobbit", Gandalf going to Dol Goldur and finding Ringwraiths and evidence of Sauron's return. It was a very creepy dream, but I thought it felt pretty cinematic. <p> I look forward to it. More Gandalf the Grey action can't be bad.

    Michel Gondry is a very creative artist/director

    by D.Vader

    Having directed "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Be Kind, Rewind" recently. Also famous for directing crazy music videos, like White Stripes' "Hardest Button to Button" and Bjork's "Human Nature".

  • April 17, 2009, 6:22 p.m. CST

    I'm not saying...

    by ThereWolf

    The Hobbit as 2 films won't work. I trust the film makers to do a good job. The book, though, is only slight and can easily fit into one movie. I guess I'm just worried they're going to overcook a very simple story.<p>Doing 2 also gives them time to get Smaug right. Presumably he won't appear till the second movie.

    Nothing wrong with this week's Lost. But I rarely dislike an episode, so... <p> DON'T care about the Hobbit, but I'll probably watch it anyway. Isn't The Lovely Bones supposed to be coming out soon? Good chance I won't bother with that one, but only because I found the book kind of annoying. Effective (read: wringing the cat's neck), but annoying...Only sort of interested to see how they'd pull the story off on film. <p> DO care about Antichrist. I want to see Michel Gondry draw a portrait of that. Alas, I am far too broke to get a drawing of myself. Would make a pretty sweet gift for a friend, though.

    I actually liked Dairy of the Dead? Is that just me? I also really like Redacted, with the Myspace/Youtube videos. Anyone seen that? <P> Don't care about the Hobbit, yeah I'll see it but really do with it what you will. <P> Glad to see DANNYGLOVERS didn't like Be Kind Rewind. I saw it getting WAY too much love around it. It was an ok movie I didn't hate it but save to the Sewing what ever and the fact that they did fucking put the Gondrys Sew of the movie trailer as an extra feature on the DVD was weak WAY weak. Really fucking pissed me off actually. <P> Also bought that Star Trek Comic today. Hopefully its as good as this site has been hyping it to be. I realized that a year ago I was going to watch all the Star Trek movies (the original cast)and I got up to 4 but I accidentally rented 6 (i fucked up my roman numerals) and never went back to watch 4 and 5. So 4 should be here tomorrow and 5 next week, kind of a best and worst my lady friend gets to see before she sees the new one. Luckily Boston Legal has been kind to Shatner so she actually likes him now. Too bad JJ wasn't smart enough to surprise the shit out of everyone and have a secret Shatner cameo, pretty fucking stupid. I don't care how good the movie is, William is right, he fucking is Star Trek. I mean Ben Stiller pulled a secret Tom Cruise cameo the JJ hype machine pisses me off. Because it goes no where.

    Be Kind Rewind was extremely dull and uninspired.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    It felt like Michel wanted to make an ordinary movie and the studio pressured him into doing his signature style with the Swedes. They were very half ass. Everything clever was shown in the trailer. The story itself sucked. Mos Def was annoying. He was much better in Hitchhiker's Guide.

    Toadkiller, darlin'

    by Mavra Chang

    1.I can't damage Xiphos in any way shape or form. Good lord, man! He's needed to replace me if I ever get fired from the other website. He's too valuable to risk for lecherous purposes. <p> 2. I would never hurt ThereWolf. If he's volunteering for anything, then I don't need any weapons. I'm perfectly willing to trade in the excitement of hunting for other types of excitement. <p> 3. You seem to be fortifying yourself rather nicely while protesting quite a bit about the possibility that you would not longer be desirable to me. Must you continue to tempt me with such fascinating details and descriptions? <p> Mr. Toadkillerdog, you're trying to seduce me!

    Dairy of the Dead....Zombie Cows Gone Wild!

    by Mavra Chang

    The virus transmitted through milk...children eat Captain Crunch then crunch their parents... Elsie the Cow becomes a new symbol of the Antichrist.

    To clarify re Diary Of The Dead

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Although fuck knows why I'm bothering on a Saturday. Shit, I hate being out of the loop.<p>Anyway, those camcorder films just don't work for me. I did a double bill of Redacted and Diary, and that confirmed it for me. The more you try to make your camcorder bullshit appear 'real' while also telling a story, the more phoney you end up making it all seem. It's like the camcorder gimmick draws attention to how fake and staged everything is. Also, the film made me feel like George A Romero had battered me about the head with a cardboard tube that had PEOPLE USE CAMERAS TO DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THEIR LIVES! written on the side of it in black marker pen.<p>Maybe the Wank review was a little too strong, though. I did like the bit where the zombie's head melted in.

    "Haaaaaapy traaaaaails... toooo yoooooou!"

    The one realistic part of the film, imho

    by Mavra Chang

    Was the woman screaming at the guy to put the camera down and help her. Sad that people actually do that sort of crap. <p> How are you doing this morning?

  • April 18, 2009, 6:35 a.m. CST

    If I accomplish nothing else today

    by Mavra Chang

    I at least want to put us up above Harry Potter. Shouldn't be too difficult.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:36 a.m. CST

    By the way...

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Butters becoming a lame vampire and running about hissing at people - hilarious.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Hi, Mavra.<p>I can't stay long, but clambering up over Harry Potter should be do-able.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:38 a.m. CST

    What film was that, Franklin?

    by Mavra Chang

  • April 18, 2009, 6:38 a.m. CST

    Awesome!

    Tag teaming is good fun. Thanks!

    Down you go.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:42 a.m. CST

    I liked Land Of The Dead, too

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Not a great one, and not as good as Night, Dawn or Day, but I enjoyed it.<p>Sorry, that's not much of fight... um... you bitch.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    They're having a dig at that whole Twilight business, I think. Kids who think they're vampires and whatnot. It's a funny episode.

    LMFAO

    by Mavra Chang

    You don't get nearly as riled up as some of these other guys. <p> I just read on Horror Movies & Stuff.com that a new zombie movie called "Bong of the Dead" has been made. <p> Also films called "Easter Bunny Kill Kill" and "Bloodsucka Jones". Sound like our sorts of movies!

  • April 18, 2009, 6:51 a.m. CST

    Transformers 2 also hits the deck!

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Check out those douchebag blurry robots, they've pissed themselves!

  • April 18, 2009, 6:51 a.m. CST

    Poor pathetic Potter. Tough luck, kiddo.

    by Mavra Chang

    I've never watched South Park. I bet that is funny, though.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:53 a.m. CST

    Silent Night, Zombie Night is also coming out.

    by Mavra Chang

    And Romero is going to write zombie novels. Wow!

    "Bong of the Dead"

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Is that any relation to "Evil Bong"? That film was actually pretty funny. Tommy Chong fights an evil bong with a chainsaw in it.

    Elisabeth Shue Confirmed For Piranha 3-D

    by Mavra Chang

    Lots of movie news today over there.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:56 a.m. CST

    This is what it says:

    by Mavra Chang

    A new zombie/comedy is coming soon from the indie horror circuit called The Bong Of The Dead. The film, which we learned about this AM stars Simone Bailly, Jy Harris, and Mark Wynn. In the movie, which was directed by Thomas Newman...Tommy and Edwin are a couple of potheads who happen to survive a mass zombie outbreak. Since they are alone in the world they spend most of their time partying and smoking weed. One day they discover that by using zombie brains as fertilizer, they are able to grow some super potent pot! Problem is since the government has cleared out all the zombies in their city they have to go on a road trip in order to find more zombies. It is an action adventure road trip movie from hell with plenty of pot smoking and many laughs! There will be bud!

  • April 18, 2009, 6:57 a.m. CST

    Tommy Chong probably did that quite often.

    by Mavra Chang

    Did the bong win?

  • April 18, 2009, 6:58 a.m. CST

    Elisabeth Shue Confirmed For Piranha 3-D?

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    What? Didn't she win an Oscar?<p>In other news, Philip Seymour Hoffman confirmed for Astro Lesbians Vs Werewolves On The Moon (possibly).<p>Anyway, got to run. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Mavra. Cheers!

  • April 18, 2009, 6:59 a.m. CST

    About that article on Bong of the Dead

    by Mavra Chang

    If the two guys are alone in the world, what government cleared out the zombies? <p> I'm overthinking this already.

  • April 18, 2009, 7 a.m. CST

    Bye Franklin. Thanks for the chat.

    by Mavra Chang

    And now we have some new topics for everyone to toss about.

  • April 18, 2009, 7:03 a.m. CST

    This is what they say about that Pirahna movie:

    by Mavra Chang

    Veteran actress Elisabeth Shue will indeed topline Dimension Films upcoming 3-D remake of Piranha, according to Moviehole, who report the actress is quote..."playing the role of Sherrif Julie Forester, a take-charge authority figure in the community of Lake Victoria - where the action/ankle-biting takes place. She's the mother of Jake (one of the central characters in the film - the shy teenager who gets to prove his worth when human-eating fish threaten his family and friends), Laura and Zane." The redo, which is being directed by Alex Aja...is slated to hit cinemas next year. In the film...they're back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Havasu explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend - the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem.

  • April 18, 2009, 7:04 a.m. CST

    Piranha, Pirahna, as long as the fish have fangs.

    by ThereWolf

  • April 18, 2009, 6:29 p.m. CST

    It was from Horror Movies & Stuff.com

    by Mavra Chang

    This was what the article said: <p> A new indie horror film is coming our way with a blaxploitation edge to it. The pic is called Bloodsucka Jones, and it stars Maria Canapino. Canapino will be playing the title character's trusty (and sexy) sidekick. The movie tells the story of Dave King. He was just dumped by his girlfriend but it is okay because he meets the girl of his dreams who turns out to be a vampire. Her vampire friends and family want Dave dead but she loves him. So Dave enlists the help of Tony a bumbling wannabe vampire hunter and his favorite comic book hero Bloodsucka Jones to save the day. Wacky superbitchin' Hi Jinks ensue. The movie is set to go in front of cameras in Orange County later this month.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:31 p.m. CST

    I get email updates from them every week.

    The woman who subs for me on my one night off

    by Mavra Chang

    Isn't very good at the job. She burns things and covers them with frosting. I haven't trusted her with Sunday morning stuff. <p> Also, I haven't been able to afford to take my vacation time. They make us take 40 hours if we do it, but only pay for 20. I just work through and take the unused cash as a Christmas bonus. <p> Next year though, I am taking vacation, even if I lose some pay for it. I'm planning on going to the Grand Canyon. Been wanting to do that for a long time.

  • April 18, 2009, 6:54 p.m. CST

    Top or bottom. You can raft or fish in the river, so I hear. You can take mule rides or you can hike. <p> I'm joining a gym on Monday so I can get in shape for hiking the trails. <p> It's also on $12 to get into the park (as it's a state park and they have low-priced set fees nationwide). <p> I could poossibly have gone this year, if I stayed in a tent, but a friend might go with me and would prefer a hotel room. That means I need more time to save up for it. I needed the extra time to prepare for the trails anyhow.

    by kungfuhustler84

    Was most definitely not uncreative or lacking in spirit. He remade like 20 movies with far more creativity and interesting techniques than Hollywood has in years. People hate on this film for no reason other than it's just not their humor. you can't blame something for lacking in creativity when like 80% of it is showing people how to make an okay movie with little to no money. It's a beautiful movie about the creation and passion for movies. It deserves all the love it gets. No question. And it's boring seeing it get hated on for reasons that really have no ground.

    Be Kind Rewind

    by Series7

    Was just meh overall. I think Gondry had an idea of what he wanted and then saw how involved the neighborhood wanted to get with the movie. And he kind of let the movie get away from him. I mean he wrote that book about his experience on this movie. I actually like it better then the Science of Sleep. I mean its just there was a lot of expectation going into it and it was a much smaller simpler movie that Gondry wanted to do. And it just came off dull, Danny's right the coolest parts where in the trailer, save for maybe the electrocution scene. That was pretty crazy.

  • April 18, 2009, 10:31 p.m. CST

    Science of Sleep

    by kungfuhustler84

    yeah, definitely my least favorite of all his stuff.<p>And Be Kind Rewind may have gotten away from him, but it grew and developed into something that is about more than just simple movie-making. It's the good parts of community and friendship. It's a quaint film to be sure, but a charming one that I have yet to be disappointed with in the numerous times I have re-visited it. Haha okay to be honest, I understand that I have substantial more love for this movie than most people. It just struck a cord with me I guess. I saw it the first time with my mom to on a trip with just her and me up the west coast to celebrate her cancer remission, so there's probably a bit of sentimental value there as well. It's no problem of mine if you don't like it, but I seriously don't think you can knock the movie for not being creative. Like what about printing the negatives of their faces so they could film the night shots? Have you ever just thought of doing that? It's clever and funny right?

  • April 19, 2009, 3:29 a.m. CST

    Its weird. I think I like Gondry a lot....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    .....but then I think about it-- and I really just like Eternal Sunshine and his music videos. So do I really like him as a filmmaker? I dunno. I kinda more like the idea of him. I wish he made more films I truly loved. Science had some cool shit in it, but the romance was flat and it felt like it had no heart, though it was trying very hard to.

  • April 19, 2009, 4:34 a.m. CST

    Danny, I'm with you on Eternal Sunshine

    by kungfuhustler84

    And Science of Sleep was WAY too awkward. One of my favorite things is the White Stripes video of Hardest Button to Button.<p>http://tinyurl.com/cmr4ft<p>I'm sure Gondry can direct a good movie if he gets a really good script. Kaufman wrote Sunshine, and it shows I think.

I should never have given you that much to drink. <p> Toad, I PROMISE that I will not tell anyone what you did or what you said (or what you sang...never took you for a fan of THAT singer, though...very interesting and kind of creepy). <p> That does it. I actually feel ashamed of myself, for the moment. But while I am in non-evil mode (sunrise, you know), I do hereby pledge to stop taking advantage of what is obviously the weaker sex. You guys aren't nearly as tough as you claim to be. <p> Oh yeah... Sorry about the tattoo. It seemed funny at the time. Bet that's gonna sting when you wake up. I wouldn't try seeing the whole thing for a couple of days. Better give that a rest until it heals.

    That was the first Gondry thing I ever saw'd. I actually really like that film. It was written by Kaufman. Hahah Fu I just looked up Kaufman's resume and he did an episode of Moral Orel. I need to go back and watch that one. I need to go watch that whole series again. <P> I want to see Dave Chapelles Bloc Party and Toykyo!. Also I think my favorite White Stripes is still the first thing I ever saw about them before they were huge, that Lego Video, Fell in Love With a Girl. I think Gondry directs all of their videos.

    by Mavra Chang

    Yesterday we learned that there'd be a "Ju-On" (The Grudge) video game coming. Since the "Saw" films have a game coming out this fall, I guess it's only natural a "Ju-On" game would happen. At any rate, today, we got some new details which we were awaiting on the forthcoming game. The game is being made specifically for the Nintendo Wii console, and players will be required to use the Wii-remote tool as a flashlight in the game, which ties in to making you experience fear within the game, as well as acting as a barometer for your character's health in the game.

    More news: <p> With it being previously announced that IFC Midnight will release the Canadian horror pic Pontypool to VOD and in NYC and L.A. cinemas on May 29th, and the Norwegian zombie pic Dead Snow in similar capacity on June 12th, now they've released future release details for two other horror films. One being Pablo Proenza's Dark Mirror, which stars Lisa Vidal, David Chisum, Joshua Pelegrin, Lupe Ontiveros, Christine Lakin, David Farkas, John Newton, and Jim Storm. IFC Midnight will send the film into limited cinemas and on VOD beginning on May 6th through August 4th. The film follows a photographer who moves her family into a strange old house, where she discovers an alternate reality reflected in the glass...a dark reality that is closing in on her. Lastly, IFC Midnight will send the Korean horror film Cadaver into cinemas and to VOD beginning on May 20th and running through August 18th. "Cadaver" centers on a group of medical students who embark upon their first autopsy in a cursed medical department.

    Oh, yes your legendary tracking skills allowed you to locate me in my inebriated state in my West Virginia hidey hole. And yes it is true that I was curled up in a fetal position - bucket naked, and you stood over top of me with hands on hips and a triumphant look on your face. But that was your downfall. You were overconfident. You thought you could sashay into my toadkiller lair and take control. Hah! I am the Toadkillerdog born! It was a trap from my very first alcohol fueled post. A ruse. A base canard. I played with your weakness for all things toadkiller, and your over-confidence in your tracking abilities. Yes, I had to drink copious amounts of Scottish Dirty Bastard Ale (9% alcohol). And it did slow my reflexes somewhat, but I had ace in the hole. A little known pill that produces instant soberness. Once I took that pill, I turned the tables and it was you who were trapped! The look of horror on your face, when you awoke from from your fainting spell, and saw a fully operational Toadkiller is one I will treasure. <p> And the only tattooing that happened that night was the picture of a toad tattooed under your left breast with the words "Toad Ho". <p> You have been bested and exposed. Because you forgot that a Toad never makes the same mistake twice. <p> Poor obsessed and tattooed Mavra!

  • April 20, 2009, 12:19 a.m. CST

    SOOOOOOOOOOOO I do have something to confess

    by Series7

    I saw Paul Blart: Mall Cop. And my bigest concern is why the fuck do dollar theaters have like the newest movie trivia questions before the show? This is only my second time to a Dollar theater in like as far as I can remember, no knock on Dollar theaters but the only other time was for Ong Bak, only way to see it. But I wasn't going to pay top dollar for the PBMC. But it has become this long running joke between me and the lady friend so if fucking finally just got to Dollar theaters last week and we were all set to go. So color me surprised when I saw Trivia questions for movies that just came out or weren't even out yet? Same thing before Ong Bak? I don't get it. <P> But anyways all I want to say is that I am going to wait for Observe And Report when it hits $1 theaters and maybe make some sort of ven diagram between the two. See overall I snuck in some brewskies into the show which is a must do for anyone making plans to catch the PBMC. I like Kevin James I think he is genuinely funny and he seems like a really nice guy, he's just funny to laugh at and very likable. The movie is just fucking terrible I mean this really was a tour de force on James, they didn't even bother trying to make anyone else funny besides him. I mean how this money made that much money is something no one will know, its gotta be James' personality. I laughed, its stupid and silly and fun and I think about 3/4 through they gave up on an actual score and settled for a guy on a sweet Yamaha. I can't wait for OAR to hit the $1 theaters, because first off the term Observe and Report is a moto in PBMC and the two female leads look like fucking twins. This is worse then the Antz/Bugs Life debacle, its probably more like the Madagascar/The Wild mishap because both those movies were god fucking awful and only one of them were hits. See both Bugs and Antz were hits and very good. Unless OAR turns out to be the subliminal genius that I keep hearing about from that director that didn't really see in the Foot Way First (you know what its called). I enjoyed PBMC while intoxicated, its harmless fun and I want Kevin to go on and make better movies, a star was born in that garbage but at least it was better then Madagascar. <P> I do have two questions though: 1). I wonder what the companies that turned down getting free publicity in this film think now, there is a Sharper Image plug (which may have been too little too late) but other then that and Vectroia Secret? for a mall very little stores where mentioned. 2). I wonder why there wasn't a Rob Schnider or Adam Sandler cameo in this, was that a smart decision on James' part or did neither of them think this movie was going to be worth a damn?

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Seriously-- I think Crank2 is the funniest movie I've ever seen. I was having a few drinks (spiked my soda) during the movie, but I don't think I've ever laughed harder during a film. It was like non-stop. I can't judge how that will hold up on repeat viewings. But its fucking funny.

    by Lost Jarv

    Now I'm back in the saddle I have to clarify this nonsense about it bot being abominable. <P>Diary is a wretched festering pile of wank that tries to be postmodern but fails singularly because of the fact that it's about as subtle as being booted in the nuts. Not to mention the fact that the characters in it are such fucking unbelievable douchbags. <P>I also do not like that hand held camera aesthetic, but it's bad for many other reasons.

    by Lost Jarv

    The Zombie Diaries is the film you're thinking of. And it's about 100 times better than Diary of the Dead. <P>The problem with diary is that there is only so many times you can hear various characters scream at the prick to put the camera down before you've got an irreversible urge to jam it up his ass. Especially when his mate is running away from the zombies begging him to help and he's just standing there like a spare prick at a lesbian wedding filming the fucking thing.

    Some are just entertaining to watch and others aren't. I grew up playing cricket, basketball, aussie rules football, golf, tennis and a little bit of soccer and baseball.

    True to some extent

    by Lost Jarv

    but all of them have more variety to watch and play than golf. If you want to reduce them to the absolute bare minimum then yes, they are more repetitive. <P>They are also competitive- Golf isn't. I'm not explaining this properly, but Golf is an individual sport. In essence it's one person attempting to get into the hole in as few shots as possible- it doesn't matter if he's doing it on his tod or in a queue of 15 million others to go on a leaderboard. I suppose if you're playing it then it may be more fun.<P>It's mind-numbing.

    Good morning my lil Toad Ho. So the green stained toad juice wore off? No matter, there is a lot more where that came from. How the fuck did you sneak that camera into the Toadlair? Apparently those sobriety pills are not instantaneous, or they produce an amnesia effect, because I damn sure do not remember doing the Toadkiller dance for you - but there I was on film. Still it produced the desired effect and made you my Toad Ho for life. It buried sub-conscious and subliminal effects into your psyche that can only be triggered by the Toadkillerdog born. For now and forever more, unless I release you, you will be subject to my every whim. Dance Mavra, dance!

    Hellboy 2 was good

    by Droid

    He hasn't made a flick I've disliked. Just good or great. I have a lot of love for Devils Backbone though. Moreso than Pans. Probably because Pans got hyped, while Devils was under the radar.

    HBII sucked potash

    by toadkillerdog

    Ok, maybe not that bad. But it was derivative(can you saw MIB and harry Potter - I think you can). It was repetitive (can you say recycled Pans designs - I think you can). It was heartless (can you say compared to original HB - i think you can). It was unimaginative. And the villain (really?) was a fucking pansy assed fairy. <p> yeah it sucked.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    But after 5 days of being in the hospital and having my joints ruined by those uncomfortable chairs, sitting at my desk is actually an improvement.<p>Did manage to watch a few movies on my laptop though. Flash of Genius and Doubt are highly recommended and Admiral, while flawed, is the best Russian movie I've seen yet.

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Hopefully he'll be released today. Don't know how much more of the hospital I can take.<p>Doubt was a collection of just unbelievable acting/writing. Not only is the scene with Streep and Davis an acting tour de force, but that scene in the principal's office where Streep and Adams confront Philip Seymour was just about the best thing in a movie I've seen all year.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:17 a.m. CST

    All I've seen since the last update...

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    ...is Death Sentence, a JPT recommendation. It was good. Not up there with my favourite entry into the Middle-Aged Vengeance genre - Man On Fire - but I enjoyed it. That Kevin Bacon is a good actor, and they did a great job of showing his transformation from regular guy to fucked up badass.<p>Thanks, JPT.<p>That puts me at 140.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Lesbian hulk midgets are an endangered species, you know. I actually spend all my free time (well, whatever is left after drinking and watching films) protecting them and educating the world about their plight.<p>I'm like that Grizzly Man man, but with lesbian hulk midgets instead of bears (also, I have to be mauled to death).

  • April 20, 2009, 8:19 a.m. CST

    Yeah, I liked Death Sentence

    by toadkillerdog

    I highly recommend Punisher War Zone for sheer fun and violence! <p> Man on Fire is a great flick. Under rated. Proof of Life is also vastly under rated

    How goes the job search?<p>Yes, Flash of Genius has Lauren Graham.<p>I have not seen the Scottish Ale among the Stone Brewery stuff yet. I had a shot of the scotch ThereWolf sent me when I returned home from the hospital the other night and it actually made my joints feel better. Booze is delightful.<p>Speaking of Hellboy 2, that's on a list of movies from last year I was disappointed with that I want to revisit.<p>While in the hospital I also finished watching Ken Burns' "The War" docu-series. David Keith David does such a great job narrating what is easily the best footage ever put together of the war.

    I've been watching Smallville lately

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    (extra time on my hands and whatnot)<p>It seems to me, every second of that show that is not devoted to Lois Lane is like the crackly empty spaces you used to get between songs on vinyl albums. If it were up to me, I would retitle that show LOISVILLE, and every episode would involve Lois Lane doing household chores in her underwear.<p>She's doing the vacuuming now... in her underwear. Nice.<p>And now she's washing the windows. Look at that, some soap suds are dripping down into her cleavage. Oh my.<p>P.S. It's possible I've been single too long. I need to get a girlfriend, or at least borrow someone else's for an hour.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:33 a.m. CST

    You know, I really hated Death Sentence

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    It was an OK movie except for the part where Kevin Bacon doesn't send away his family to some undisclosed location far far away from the violent gang members threatening his life. As a father and husband, I found that plot point particularly offensive and retarded. Had it not been for that, it would have been a much better flick.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:37 a.m. CST

    On a plus side, Franklin

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Being out of work, you should be home when your replacement package arrives.<p>Glad you were able to see The Warlords.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:40 a.m. CST

    HOD

    by toadkillerdog

    I remember reading that argument about the flick, and agreeing with whoever wrote it before i saw the movie. Now, It aint a great flick, but the violence when unleashed is fantastic. But al that notwithstanding, having seen the movie I was not as put out about him not sending his family away as you were. yes, it would have made more sense, but then again, he had round the clock police protection. Who thinks common thugs will kill police just to get at him for mere revenge - ok, other than in Baltimore or Texas. <p> I mean you can defend what he did or did not do based upon his belief that the police would protect him. Now, after the police protection was lifted, then yes, send the family away.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:44 a.m. CST

    That's a fair point about Death Sentence

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    But for me the film was about how going after revenge pretty much ruined the guy's life, so it made sense it that context. He was naive, he killed the first guy thinking that would probably be the end of it, and it turned out to have nasty consequences. That was my take on it, anyway.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:47 a.m. CST

    Well, even with police protection, I'd still send my child away

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I've seen enough movies and horrific news in my life to realize that posted sentries always get whacked.<p>The gunfight at the end was well done and the scene at the parking garage was thrilling. I mean, it really tried to be an above average revenge movie.

  • April 20, 2009, 8:47 a.m. CST

    Forgot one.

    I was just looking at the list of films and I put little reminders next to them to help me remember after the other day when I couldn't remember Dawson v Squid. <P>My favourite one is next to The Animal: "Rob Schneider is a cunt". That's not particularly helpful in identifying the movie, but fuck it's really funny.

    Fred sneaking in a quick post or three. No one around. Hawaiian Organ Donor. Fred is happy to hear that your Father is doing better. Also, Fred would be more than willing to pay for postage and handling of package. That is the least Fred could do. <p> Franklin T Marmoset - Fred hopes that your job search is swift and productive. Otherwise you are liable to put on lots of weight and be unable to protect the Lesbian Hulk Midget ladies from whatever could endanger a Lesbian Hulk Midget - which Fred shudders to even contemplate. <p> Toadkillerdog, Dirk wanted me to warn you about the slippery slope you are on with regards to his chick, Mavra Chang. While she may have renounced his, in his words 'sweet, sweet Amoeba love' that does not mean he is done with her. Amoebas are very territorial.

    South Park

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Every year, people say it's in decline; and every year I don't know what the hell they mean. I fucking love South Park and as far as I'm concerned the new stuff holds up just as well as the old. The Coon was hilarious (especially Cartman's inability to maintain his Batman voice), the one about the financial crisis was great, and I just got through laughing my ass off at the Kanye West one. It was moving when he accepted his true nature at the end.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Hey, Frankies here!

    by Droid

    I totally agree with your South Park sentiments. Ever since about the fourth bloody season they've said it's 'lost it'. Fuck that. Every episode finds a way to make me laugh and also make very true statements about the world we live in. A recent example is the Disney/Jonas Brothers episode. Now, I have no fucking idea what a Jonas Brother is, but that fucking episode is genius. Especially Mickey Mouse kicking the shit out of the JB's and Cartmans comment that the most diseased place on the planet is an american females mouth. <p>I love South Park.

    Oddly enough, I think American Dad is generally brilliant

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Very underrated show in my humble opinion. Family Guy relies too much on a gimmick to be consistently funny. And even though I enjoy American Dad, I agree with Xiphos that McFarlane deserves to be punched in the throat.<p>And I don't think I've ever watched more than 5 episodes of South Park. Stone and Parker annoy me because they seem to have become all that they mock. So I'd be happy to punch them in the throat too.

    Ballard on Empire of the Sun Premiere

    by menstrual_blitz

    "A wonderful night for any novelist, and a reminder of the limits of the printed word," he wrote in 2006. "Sitting with the sober British contingent, surrounded by everyone from Dolly Parton to Sean Connery, I thought Spielberg's film would be drowned by the shimmer of mink and the diamond glitter. <p> "But once the curtains parted the audience was gripped. Chevy Chase, sitting next to me, seemed to think he was watching a newsreel, crying: 'Oh, oh . . . !' and leaping out of his seat as if ready to rush the screen in defense of young Bale."

    You thought HB 2 was Heartless and sucked but HB 1 was amazing?????? WHHHAAAAAAAA??? I fucking hated Hellboy 1 the plot sucked there were no characters let alone character development. Plus that whole Meyers guy was stupid.

    Chuckster=Charles Barkley

    by Xiphos_2

    Chuck being a nick name for Charles. Charles Barkley is refered to as Chuck or the Chuckster.

    Neither HB movies were all that good

    by Series7

    I disagree. HellBoy 2 was amazing. The sets and costumes and makeup can't be beat. I was much better then Ironman.

  • April 21, 2009, 12:03 a.m. CST

    What does iron man have to do with anything?

    by Xiphos_2

    Hellboy two looked just the same as 1 what was the difference? The gay hippie elf? Isn't that a direct rip off from the that gay midget travel movie with the ring? The golden army was dumb and look like shit.

  • April 21, 2009, 12:42 a.m. CST

    Ironman has everything to do with it.

    by Series7

    How does HB 1 and 2 look exactly the same? HB 1 was a lot of CG where 2 was practical effects. Plus HB 1 didn't make any sense. There just is no pleasing you is there.

  • April 21, 2009, 1:31 a.m. CST

    I'm gonna watch Hellboy II right now

    by kungfuhustler84

    What an amazing sequel to a lukewarm first movie.

  • April 21, 2009, 1:41 a.m. CST

    Hellboy 2 was fucking great

    by odo19

    One of my favorite movies from last year. I was completely entertained from start to finish. I cant remember a movie doing that to me in a very long time. I was totally invested in the story and the characters, it had a badass sympathetic villain, and it was a visual feast. Nothing more needs to be said. <P> Xi you really need to give either HB 1 or 2 another look. They look nothing alike. HB 2 is way more Pans Labyrin-thy than HB 1, which looked almost like any generic comic book movie.

  • April 21, 2009, 1:42 a.m. CST

    lol I guess I did need to say more afterall.

    by odo19

  • April 21, 2009, 1:48 a.m. CST

    I'd say and the Hellboy 2

    by Series7

    Has it.

  • April 21, 2009, 1:48 a.m. CST

    Saw Crank 2 tonight

    by odo19

    Never seen so many walk outs in my life. The crowd turned against the movie almost at once. I myself fucking hated it. Stupid piece of shit that seems like it was made by 12 year olds for 12 year olds. The Stath was badass as usual but fuck.....it was so awful. The only sort of good things in the movie were Staham boning his chick on the racetrack in front of everyone and the very end where a severed head comes into play. Lets hope they just put those scenes on youtube or something.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:17 a.m. CST

    HB IS a generic funnybook movie

    by Xiphos_2

    like most funny book movies. That's how the genre is defined in cinema.<p> Once again, how does Ironman have anyhthing to do with this? Just by stating that it does not prove anything. Could you perhaps come up with an example?<p>I'm pleased by things that are good, interesting or entertaining. All of which HB 1 and 2 proved not to be upon further viewings.<p>One other thing, The golden Army was practical and not cgi? You might want to get your eyes checked.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:21 a.m. CST

    Hellboy 2

    by Lost Jarv

    I'm with the detractors on this to a point. Hellboy 2 was not great and the Golden Army did indeed look like shit. The gay hippie elf with the weird bond with his sister was also shit as was the goblin thingy with no legs. And don't get me started on Mcfartland's gay german smoke monster. <P>I did like the Troll Market, and Perlman is excellent as Hellboy, but it just leaves me cold.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:23 a.m. CST

    Iron Man

    by Lost Jarv

    was OK. Would have been a festering bag of arse without downey. But luckliy for us, it had downey.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:25 a.m. CST

    Funnily enough,

    by Lost Jarv

    I don't think HB 2 is a generic comic book movie as such- it's more fantasy than funny book-y.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:27 a.m. CST

    I'm kind of lost on Iron Man myself

    by odo19

    Not sure what it has to do with anything. IM was okay btw.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:32 a.m. CST

    Jarv

    by kungfuhustler84

    I'm with you on McFarlane. Fuck do I hate that guy. His voice completely pulled me out of the movie.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:35 a.m. CST

    Yes- what has Iron Man got to do with Hellboy?

    by Lost Jarv

    It has more in common with TDK.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:51 a.m. CST

    Last Night I watched T2 again

    by Lost Jarv

    and I'm coming round to Danny's thinking about it. It's a shit film with a wince inducing script elevated by a few stunning set pieces and some genuinly brilliant effects. <P>I'd forgotten precisely how embarrasing Furlong is in it and some of the dialogue is just atrocious.

  • April 21, 2009, 2:51 a.m. CST

    Jarv

    by kungfuhustler84

    They're both just big summer comic movies. Neither is very heavy or dramatic, and both are pretty well done. Damn, what a dumb question.

    J G Ballard

    by Lost Jarv

    I am honestly not that much of a fan. I loved Empire of The Sun, but loathed it's sequel. Loathed Cocaine NIghts and Super Cannes and am totally indifferent to crash. <P>Hmmm....

  • April 21, 2009, 3 a.m. CST

    How is it a dumb question?

    by Lost Jarv

    I get that they are both summer movies based on comics, and that they are both professionally done, but I'd argue that HB2 is tonally, visually and thematically miles away from Iron Man. <P>You can argue that Iron Man is Sci-Fi and HB Fantasy to a certain extent.

  • April 21, 2009, 3 a.m. CST

    Let's play a guessing game

    by kungfuhustler84

    Which movie doesn't Jarv hate?

  • April 21, 2009, 3:04 a.m. CST

    Of course

    by kungfuhustler84

    Comic books have many different genres, from noir to superhero to soap opera, so it makes sense for comic book movies to do the same thing. He was obviously speaking of their shared more lighthearted tone and lack of a more hard R rating like say, Watchmen, 300 or Sin City, all of which are comic movies. But Iron Man is a lot more like Hellboy than it is something like Sin City, which is much more experimental visually. There's all kinds of ways to look at it. So it's a dumb question because there are so many obvious answers.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:10 a.m. CST

    I FINALLY saw Evil Dead for the first time

    by kungfuhustler84

    I've been a fan of the two sequels for years. I like it okay. Evil Dead 2 is still the best. It was a good little horror flick though. It's the first horror movie I have seen and actually liked since The Strangers.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:11 a.m. CST

    Loads of movies- Every time I watch one I post what I think of i

    by Lost Jarv

    And so far this year I've seen more I liked than hated. That's a totally inaccurate way to represent me. <P>Anyway, I didn't hate HB2. It's a fully blown "meh" for me.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:15 a.m. CST

    It's not a dumb question at all

    by Lost Jarv

    because they have less than fuck all in common. If you want to be a dick, then fine, but you're ignoring the fact that aside from the Comic book they are tonally, thematically and visually light years apart. <P>I'm not weighing in on funny books- it's a statement of the fucking obvious.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:17 a.m. CST

    Evil Dead

    by Lost Jarv

    top fucking movie- and arguably the only "pure" horror film of the 3 of them. <P>I'm torn over whether or not I want to see an Evil Dead 4.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:53 a.m. CST

    I'm not in a mood

    by kungfuhustler84

    I'm just kind of a snarky bastard. Dumb questions are dumb questions. Of course they're different. One's about a demon man and the other is about a millionaire that builds a robot rocket suit. Not the same you say?<p>Okay, redundant arguments over. I'm watching In Bruges now. It's completely different from what I expected, which is great.

  • April 21, 2009, 3:54 a.m. CST

    HB2 is completely unrelated to IM

    by Droid

    I have rewatched both and HB2 holds up and IM doesn't. I was bored rewatching IM, but HB2 held my attention to the end. The troll market is an amazing scene. I liked the Golden Army. And the german guy was the dude from Family Guy? Fuck me. Well, he amused me too.

    Fuck's sake

    by Lost Jarv

    it isn't a fucking dumb question- they've fuck all in common aside from the fact that they're both based on comic books. <P>It's like comparing Pride and Prejudice to Fight Club as they're both based on fucking novels. <P>Anyway, enough is enough especially seeing as it wasn't even my question to begin with.

  • April 21, 2009, 5:41 a.m. CST

    It changes a lot

    by Lost Jarv

    There's s few mainstays, about six of them, but I flutter over the others depending on mood. <P>In no particular order: Alien, The Thing, The Exorcist, Requiem For A Dream (I know, I know), Raiders of The Lost Ark, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid. <P>Today I'm feeling love for The Lives of Others, Goodfellas, The Princess Bride, and Trainspotting (because I'm re-reading the book at the moment).

  • April 21, 2009, 5:49 a.m. CST

    Good list

    by Droid

    My only mainstay is Back to the Future. <p>It'd be hard for me to pin down a definitive Top 10. <p>I'd go The Sting over Butch and Sundance. Jaws would be in there. Raiders. Cool Hand Luke. The Naked Gun. Planes, Trains. Groundhog Day. <p>Requiem is awesome, but not top 10. Hell, most of those are awesome and would be around the mark. I haven't seen The Lives of Others. Not a fan of Trainspotting. I'd need to rewatch it since I saw it in high school. Fuck that was a long time ago.

    but I used to have it on video and knew every line in it- Film 4 are showing it at the moment, but I want to finish the book again first.<P>I'm the same, there's a pool of about 20-25 films that I draw from: Airplane Fistfull of Dollars, La Haine etc but I've always got Alien, The Thing etc in it.

    Top 25 ish

    In no particular order: <P>Alien, The Thing, The Exorcist, Requiem For A Dream (I know, I know), Raiders of The Lost Ark, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid,The Lives of Others, Goodfellas, The Princess Bride, City of God, La Haine, Fistfull Of Dollars, One of the Star Wars Films (probably ESB), Trainspotting, Airplane, Back To The Future, Godfather, Jaws, Terminator, Blade Runner, Apocalypse Now, Ghostbusters, Flash Gordon (hehehehehehe), Battle Royale.

  • April 21, 2009, 6:27 a.m. CST

    I agree quite a few of those

    by Droid

    1. Back to the Future <p>2-25 ish... The Sting, Jaws, Raiders, Cool Hand Luke, The Naked Gun, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Groundhog Day, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Goodfellas, Midnight Run, Empire Strikes Back, Shawshank, Major League (any flick I can watch over 20 times and still love like I’m seeing it for the first time has to be in there), Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Terminator, The Abyss, Alien, Aliens, Adaptation, Say Anything, Heat, The Godfather, JFK. <p>Those are probably interchangable with another 25 flicks that I haven't though of.

  • April 21, 2009, 6:34 a.m. CST

    That's the thing

    by Lost Jarv

    thinking about it, I can probably spout off another 25 films I absolutely love and wouldn't be ashamed to mention as the ones I did- You've got several of them- <P>Lists are fun. <P>Bottom 10?- <P>Shrooms, Forrest Gump, American Beauty, Titanic, Lust Caution, Pearl Harbour, Gigli, Jersey Girl, Cold Mountain, Half Light. <P>Lust Caution and Shrooms are recent additions and have bumped G.I.Jane and Attack of The Clones off the list.

    by D.Vader

    Look at that "Wolverine Teaser" story. He pretty much disregards all Gambit and Deadpool fans and their criticisms of how the movie destroys those characters, only to go on and BLAST FOX for "fucking up" the Emma Frost character by giving her a "diamond skin" power. Then he rants about how they don't give a fuck about characters, yadda yadda yadda... without doing one shred of research to back his claims. <p> Then he does look it up. Ooops. Turns out, Emma Frost DOES have that diamond skin power from the comics. So all that vitriol wasted bc of his own IGNORANCE. He's like a 6 yr old kid with a mental disorder sometimes.

    and is one of the most tedious, insutingly stupid, predictable, half assed, wretched, irritating pieces of shit ever to crawl it's way on to screen. <P>I fucking hate Meet Joe Black, Hannibal, Deuce Bigalow, Spawn. They are all serious contenders.

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Um...<p>Southland Tales, In The Name Of The King, Children Of The Living Dead, Blues Brothers 2000, Rollerball (remake), Transformers.<p>Shit, that's only 6. Please insert 4 Paul Walker films to make up the numbers.

  • April 21, 2009, 7:17 a.m. CST

    Yeah that is strange

    by Lost Jarv

    If you think about it, nobody can really deny that Blade Runner and Alien are out and out classics, but Hannibal and G.I.Jane are fucking stinkingly bad. <P>Is there anyone more inconsistent than Scott? <P>I did toy with putting in The Lost World and Hook in the bottom 10, but I remember that I hated other films more.

  • April 21, 2009, 7:19 a.m. CST

    Shit, I should have put Spawn on there

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I annoyed two different girlfriends with that one. Once when I dragged one along to see it at the cinema, and once about a year later when I thought I'd give it another go on video with a different girlfriend and it was still shit.<p>So, that's only 3 Paul Walker films needed to pad the list.

  • April 21, 2009, 7:23 a.m. CST

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, The Big Lebowski, Cool Hand Luke, Die Hard, Aliens, Annie Hall, Big Trouble In Little China, Spinal Tap, Apocalypse Now, Memento.

  • April 21, 2009, 7:23 a.m. CST

    The Lost World

    by Droid

    had a few good set pieces, like the trailer hangin over the cliff, so that's enough to get it a pass. Overall it was shit though. Just not Bottom 10 shit. <p>Southland Tales and Rollerball remake are worthy contenders. I don't remember Hook at all, which indicates it was shit. Just how shit, i don't remember.

    by ThereWolf

    can't make up me mind. I know Alien is Number 1. Then Blade Runner, The Thing and The Abyss are thereabouts. I just don't know. So many films...<p>In the bottom - AvP, AvP:R, House Of Wax (remake) and ET.

    by Droid

    for the first time this year. I've tried twice before to watch BR but it was so fucking boring I turned it off. First the theatrical then the directors cut version. I watched the latest, eighteenth version Scott released and while it was visually spectacular, it left me cold. And bored. Not a fan. But I suppose I can see why some people are. If only the story and characters lived up to the visuals. <p>The Thing on the other hand was just fucking awesome from start to finish.

    Watching it again recently (the final cut) confirmed that for me. It's a beautiful film to look at, and I really like the story and the characters. A lot of people complain that it's boring, but I've never been bored by it in all the times I've seen it.

  • April 21, 2009, 7:42 a.m. CST

I remember talking to someone during Christmas about the Festivus episode, which made me go and buy the season 9 dvd set. I think it was you. If so, cheers for that.

    Ironman is at the heart of the different between HB 1 and 2

    by Series7

    See Fu is right in saying that HB 1 and Ironman are in the same category of comic book movies that is what they are. Generic takes on a comic with obviously a lot of studio involvement. Hellboy 2 on the other GDT had a lot more breathing room and did a lot with it. I mean the main character is this like 500 pound beast devil the fact that you care for it at all should say something. I mean I don't really know what you expect going into a movie like Hellboy but Hellboy 2 fucking delivered and in a big way. Yes I realize that a lot of the Golden Army was CG but the entirety of it was not CG like I barely remember the monster in the first one but there was not a part of that monster that wasn't CG. <P> I'm starting to think maybe movies like Hellboy 2 are lost on some of you older blokes.

    Series

    by toadkillerdog

    I loved the first Hellboy. To me the character's where rich and real. The interaction between HB and his father and his friends was warm and very well written and acted. The action was outstanding. HBII on the other hand, was the same old 'bigger is better' BS. The characterizations were totally false. The forced camaraderie was of the drunk scene was embarrassing. The forced tension between HB and his woman, was laughable. The recycled Pans designs were lazy. The Opening scne of the movie was a total rip off of MIB. Not too mention the glasses that see monsters. The Troll alley thing evoked Diagon alley with more thingies. The villain was just pathetic. Gay, weak, talky and with truly idiotic excuse for revenge. <p> On the plus side, the plant fight thingie was decent, and Perlman was very good - even though saddled with bad dialogue. I did not hate it. I just did not like it. <p> And Fu and Series, what does Iron Man have to do with it?

    by D.Vader

    Aside from the awesome set pieces (trailer over the cliff scene, tent ambush scene, compy attack scene, raptor scene), the camerawork is fun and playful- something you don't always see from Spielberg. See how he moves the camera and cuts between close following shots as Peter Stormare falls down the hill. Also note the long take following Richard Shiff (Eddie) as he tries to tie up the trailer and throw a rope to the dangling survivors during the cliff scene. The camera goes from outside to into the trailer to peering down the hole without much notice. <p> I could go on, but its late, I've had some scotch, and I'll start repeating my adjectives.

    by Lost Jarv

    Interestingly, is written by Charlie Brooker (who did the singly funniest thing I saw on TV in 2008), and it's at it's sharpest when skewering Big Brother (which I despise). The zombie action is a bit meh, and the supporting non BB characters are a bit whiny. <P>It also rips off 28 days later heavily. <P>As I say, it's worth a look, and is only 5 25 minute episodes so isn't too much of a trial.

    All three of them have been average at best, but none of them have been shit. I like Jackman, and Wolvie looks like fun. And my sister wants to see it so I'll go with her.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:13 a.m. CST

    I was thinking the other day that the only superhero flick...

    by Droid

    that's truly stood the test of time has been Donner's Superman (and 2). Burtons Batman (although I love Returns) hasn't. I rewatched Spiderman late last year and that's already showing signs of age. Iron Man doesn't hold up to repeat viewings. Hulk does! *pokes Jarv with a stick* The Incredible Hulk doesn't. The new Batmans look like they might, but time will tell. <p>What am I saying? Who the fuck knows. Probably just appreciating how good Supes is.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:13 a.m. CST

    I think I like the first one the most

    by Lost Jarv

    and really despise the third one (aside from Blue Frasier Crane), the second one bores me to tears. <P>After Turdmen/Voldefilm I'm right off comic book adaptations

    Fuck's sake

    by Lost Jarv

    a 3rd DaVinci code movie? Fuck's sake. The first one was bad enough, and it's one of the most atrocious books I've read in a long time.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:22 a.m. CST

    Yeah, funny books are way overexposed right now

    by Droid

    And every second flick that I read about getting made is some sort of funny book adaptation. It's bullshit.

    by Lost Jarv

    really can't stand it. I think I like The Incredibles the best. <P>Although Wall-E is delightful.

    by Lost Jarv

    but I suspect that it won't stand up.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:35 a.m. CST

    Finding Nemo is awesome

    by Droid

    I really don't know how you can dislike it. But each to their own. I was channel hopping a few weeks ago and came across it just as it started. I sat there glued to to fucking tv for the entire movie. It's brilliant. <p>The Incredibles is my favorite. In fact that'd definitely be in my Top 25. I can't really differentiate between the others since they are all so good. Except Cars. That blows.

    Top Ten list

    by odo19

    I don't think I've ever made one before. It does change alot so please be gentle.<P> 1. 2001: A Space Odyssey<P> 2. Taxi Driver <P> 3. Once Upon a Time in the West <P> 4. Robocop <P> 5. Blue velvet <P> 6. The Shining <P> 7. Sin City <P> 8. Silence of the Lambs <P> 9. Mulholland Drive <P> 10. Being John Malkovich <P> No room left but ANG LEES' Hulk(sorry Jarv) and Silent Running are sometimes on there as well.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:39 a.m. CST

    The problem with Cars...

    by Droid

    is that it felt like something fucking Dreamworks would pump out. A soulless celebrity voices pandering shitfest like Shrek, Madagascar or Shark Tale. Maybe not that bad, but it was comparable.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:45 a.m. CST

    The problem with Cars

    by Lost Jarv

    is that it's a low rent shitty remake of Doc Hollywood without a single redeeming feature. <P>Soulless is the perfect description of it.

    Mulholland Drive?

    by Droid

    Fuck I hate that flick. Replace that with Hulk! STAT! Otherwise good list. Most of those, with the exception of maybe Blue Velvet and Sin City would be around the mark of a Top 25 berth.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:51 a.m. CST

    Wouldn't have Silence of The Lambs either

    by Lost Jarv

    Like Blue Velvet and Sin City- swap MD for Elephant Man and weirdly I've never really liked 2001.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:51 a.m. CST

    Gotta agree. Hulk is genius. BUT...

    by Droid

    Not Top 10 material for me. It would sneak into a Top 50. The ending is just too insane. And not in a good way.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:52 a.m. CST

    Silence of the Lambs is brilliant

    by Droid

    As is Manhunter.

  • April 22, 2009, 4:54 a.m. CST

    Hulk is NOT genius

    by Lost Jarv

    He looks constipated, Hulk Dogs, shitty ending, wretched Nolte performance, idiotic comic strip filming, pretentious script. <P>It's risible.

    by Lost Jarv

    just a wee bit overrated.

    Yes.

    by Lost Jarv

    Great little film.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:02 a.m. CST

    Agree, if only for Cox as Lecter. But both are brilliant.

    by Droid

    Hulk Dogs - Creepy and brutal. Great scene. <p>Shitty ending - Have to agree. <p>Wretched Nolte performance - Greatest Nolte performance of all time. <p>Idiotic comic strip filming - Brilliant editing. Love the comic book design. <p>Pretentious script - Actually trying to give depth to a grunting, idiotic monster and asking a little more from an audience than morononic monosyllabic characters = Pretentious?

  • April 22, 2009, 5:03 a.m. CST

    "morononic"

    by Droid

    On that note, I'm off for a smoke in the sun.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:06 a.m. CST

    From the top

    by Lost Jarv

    Pretentious= Actors studio shit at end. <P>Hulk Dogs= not creepy and lame. Not to mention dumbassed <P>Nolte chews more scenery than even in U-Turn. <P>Agree, though, that Hulk is a moronic monosyllabic monster, so therefore any film with him in it should be fun. Slave Labour Hulk is not fun.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:08 a.m. CST

    Hate the comic strip design

    by Lost Jarv

    idiotic choice. It just highlights the limitations of Funny books as source material.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:10 a.m. CST

    In fact, now I think about it

    by Lost Jarv

    I think that the Comic book thing is what I hate most about it. <P>I suspect that if it wasn't made by Ang Lee then nobody would try to pretend that it's good.

    by Droid

  • April 22, 2009, 5:44 a.m. CST

    I had more fun with ding dongs Hulk than...

    by Droid

    cheese eating surrender monkeys Hulk. And the action in Hulk is far far better than TIH. And in TIH he really is a big, dumb monster. In Hulk he at least excudes some personality, even if it's just how pissed off he gets at those annoying bullets and tank shells.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:55 a.m. CST

    I like The Frighteners

    by D.Vader

    I remember being so excited to see it when I was younger, having no clue who Peter Jackson was. When its on tv, I try to catch it. Need to show it to my girlfriend sometime. <p> But when its on network tv, I HATE how they edit Jeffrey Combs' death scene. Instead of seeing his head disappear (due to shotgun blast), yet have his "Ghost Head" remain in place with a quizzical look on his face- something I don't recall being that graphic- we just see him blasted backward into a wall. Very lame. Ruins the whole ghost angle.

  • April 22, 2009, 5:57 a.m. CST

    by D.Vader

    Are you really a famous SAG actor and you're not telling us?

  • April 22, 2009, 6:03 a.m. CST

    I really Ang Lee

    by Droid

    Which why I pimp Hulk very much. <p>Nah, over here theres a cinema chain that has a pay monthly unlimited card. It's 15 quid and you can go to as many times as you want. I hadn't used it for ages until last week when I saw three flicks. Being that they are about 8 or 9 quid each over here, it's worth it.

    Question: Who wrote this post?

    by Droid

    UFOs Are Real by ????????????? <p> Who or what is flying them is up for debate...but these craft are real...and the governments of the world feel a need to cover-up the truth about them. You know something is up when the U.S. government creates a law that states that you cannot broadcast a invitation to alien species into outer space, for fear of attracting an invasion force of aliens. There is an actual law on the books that states this, I am not kidding about it. That should tell you all you need to know about this subject matter. <p>Take a wild fucking guess?

    by just pillow talk

    Watched Sudden Death last night. I'm feeling a bit mixed about it since they kind of toned him down in terms of kicking ass. I mean every bad guy he fought gave him a bit of a tussle, even Powers Boothe! It was watching either that or Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, which I watched bits of since the Brandon Lee connection was there. Man, it's a real shame what happened to him.

    Jarv is now a contributor?

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    Excellent.<p>I decided recently that I don't think I can have a top ten list. There are a few movies that will probably always make the cut regardless of the mood I'm in (Strangelove, Raiders, ESB, BTTF) but I find that my list varies wildly depending on my current life situation and the time of year.<p>If I'm in the mood where I want to smash someone in the face with a shovel knocking them into a chipper, then Die Hard might make the cut. If it's a lovely spring day and my daughter gives me a hug before I drive off to the place that destroys chunks of my soul every time I walk through the door, then maybe I'll lean towards Say Anything.<p>Van Damme proved he can act in JCVD. Are Series and I the only ones who saw it?<p>I'm so goddamn broke I had to settle for drinking Coke with my cigar last night. Not even enough money for one of those $5 bottles of port the supplier distills in the back of his minivan.<p>So right now I'm processing paperwork for an employee who died of morbid obesity. Seriously, I can't believe the death certificate says that's the cause of death. Well, at least the widow has a conversation killer for parties when people ask her how her husband died.<p>I did give you Outlander, right Jarv? I'd be a right prick if I didn't.

  • April 22, 2009, 8:16 a.m. CST

    by Droid

    Funny. <p>Nortons Banner was a whiny bitch. I wouldn't have noticed Tyler was even in it if they didn't have a scene with her in the rain, where coincidentally, Banner is running away like a little bitch. <p>Flashback Daddy issues may suck (in your opinion), but at least they had the balls to try and create a character, provide motivation and explain the source of his rage. Which is what effects his transformation into the Hulk. Pepé Le Pew's Hulk is just a meathead who has no idea what he's doing. <p>But since HOD has brought in the chipper and we are never going to settle this, I'll give it a rest.

    watched longest day, crucible and stand by me

    by chipps

    great movies all. some of the battle scences in longest day were excelent, particularly the one where the 82nd paracuted into the town. i'd say the d-day landing was better than saving private ryan with one cavet. decpections of individual soldiering wasn't so crash hot. there are scences of dude stroling up the beech under fire. if that were me id be busting my ass up the beech looking for a firing position. id personally be runing faster than i had ever run before not pausing, having a bit of a sticky beak than strolling toward the enemy. crucibal was excellent. never been a huge 'wino forever' fan but she was excellent in this. stand by me was awesome as well. perhaps the greatest kid cast ever, even minor roles were filled by dudes who went on to be stars, like john cusack. anyway, keep it real beeches.

    Preferred Norton Hulk to Bana Hulk.

    by Sal_Bando

    The Xmen flicks have been okay, the second one was the best of course. But I don't really plan on seeing this latest one, whatever you wanna call it. <p> And I like the Terminator flick coming up as it has Giant Robots and Bats in it both. you can't go wrong there.

It's not like Rothman there stands a chance w/ this site anyways, and as far's the Wolvie flick-I'm not gonna bother.

    Worst zombie movie

    by toadkillerdog

    Weekend at Bernies 2 - Bernie reanimated by voodoo. Just bad. It may not be the all time worst but it is very bad.

  • April 22, 2009, 11:33 p.m. CST

    Worst Zombie movie, but best "Bernie's" movie?

    by D.Vader

    I remember enjoying Weekend at Bernie's II IMMENSELY as a kid. I need to rewatch it and see how it stands up. <p> Come on! He gets shot through the head with a harpoon while carrying a treasure chest underwater! Genius!

    Bad Zombie movie

    Last Night

    by Lost Jarv

    I was walking past Morrisons on my way home and I swung in to get some beer. <P>As I was queueing to pay I noticed that there was an Arnie box set on sale for £5. Obviously, that had to be bought. <P>And there was Big Trouble in Little China for £3. <P>Score- so last night I watched Raw Deal. Which I'd never seen before and quite enjoyed, and Walking Tall. Which was funny, but poo.

  • April 23, 2009, 2:49 a.m. CST

    Anyway, so that's 150 in 4 months

    by Lost Jarv

    I've got 7 days left so 160 should not be out of the question. Which makes 500 for the year a totally feasible goal.

  • April 23, 2009, 2:51 a.m. CST

    Raw Deal

    by Lost Jarv

    not Arnold's best. Rely's far too much on his acting (which isn't his strong point). <P>Still, good for some chuckles.

    MWA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!

    by Droid

    Last night I watched.... <p>HULK!!! <p>*pokes Jarv with a stick* <p>Now, I won't harp on too much and I don't want to start another flamewar but... <p>It's fucking good. And also, it really doesn't go pear shaped until the last five minutes when Nolte turns into a gigantic water bubble of energy. <p>And the epilogue is shitty, with a shitty fake beard and the shitty use of 'You won't like me when I'm angry'. In spanish as well. So I'll concede that. <p>But the rest of the flick is awesome. I love the way it takes it's time to build and then the second hour is just an action fest of Hulk destruction. <p>And that's really all I'll say about it, because we really don't need Hulk convo #392,374,189. <p>Morning all.

    Xi

    by chipps

    thanks for the kind offer but i'm just joking (sort of - the cops did chase after me last year but i was too quick) <p>yeah, that was a great scence, all through the eyes of one doomed paratrooper, watching over the bedlam. great scence. no, i think in general as the troops got off the carriers on the beach they didnt haul ass, or put much effort into seeking cover. also there was a lot of officers standing at the front on the beach waving their arms and going 'come on boys' while walking up the beach. again. when you are under heavy fire, and you are totally exposed and the only cover is up ahead, i rather doubt you need some redundant arsehole yelling 'come on boys' to motivate you to get up the beach, but these guys get off their transports and are just standing around. the scences were massive and impressive, but forget about training and experience, just plain common sence would suggest you take cover. what was kinda funny was i backed this one up with 'stand by me' which had corey fieldman constantly yelling 'my dad stormed the beaches at normandy!'

  • April 23, 2009, 3:40 a.m. CST

    Raw Deal

    by Droid

    I haven't seen that for AGES. Probably about 15 years. Doesn't it have Sharon Stone in it? Or am I mistaken. I remember his wife being a young hot blonde who bitched, moaned and whined. She sorely needed a swift taste of the backhand from Arnie. Other than that I don't really remember it. Something about drugs, and Arnies a cop or FBI or something. It requires a revisit.

  • April 23, 2009, 3:44 a.m. CST

    Hmph

    by Lost Jarv

    No it isn't. <P>I've got schlock reviews to write and it's all overcast and shitty today.

  • April 23, 2009, 3:47 a.m. CST

    Stand By Me is a classic

    by Droid

    I just watched that a few weeks ago as well. For the hundredth time. Great, great movie. <p>Reiner has a string of about five or six great movies in a row. <p>I saw The Crucible a the cinema when it came out. I remember it being really good. Day Lewis was great. The moment at the end when he yells "But it's my name!" or something. Damn good. And Noni! She was at her most fuckable in that one, with the exception of Dracula.

  • April 23, 2009, 3:56 a.m. CST

    the crucible:

    by chipps

    so good it earned a marlyn monroe blow job. many in fact.

  • April 23, 2009, 3:58 a.m. CST

    She looks like Sharon Stone

    by Lost Jarv

    and she certainly is annoying, but she gets points for whipping her dress of in a restaurant and walking out in her neglige. <P>He's an ex Fed undercover.

  • April 23, 2009, 3:59 a.m. CST

    i loved that too

    by chipps

    'but it my name!' awesome movie. that was the bit where i drunkenly said to my lady friend 'if that kinda shit ever goes down around here i'm just gonna kill everyone. i'll sneak into the judge's house with a shovel, and that's it, problem solved' great movie, great ending. when the two wise old women look at him, and one says 'not you too john'. excellent movie.

  • April 23, 2009, 4 a.m. CST

    Heathers.

    by Lost Jarv

    Hells yeah. <P>The Crucible is too stagey (unsurprising seeing as it is a play). I seem to remember a lot of great performances in it.

    It's more difficult than you think

    by Droid

    Writing a good review. I sat there writing them and at first found it difficult to get beyond the instinctive 'it was good/bad' and actually thinking about WHY it was good/bad and putting it into words.

    by Lost Jarv

    which is likely, because as Droid says it's quite hard and I haven't written anything critical in 7 years (eek), can you let me know and I'll rewrite it. <P>I've sworn a lot, including calling the kid in Troll 2 a motherfucker.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:15 a.m. CST

    Got it!

    by Mavra Chang

    Any special instructions for them?

    Love the Vault pic, btw.

    by Mavra Chang

  • April 23, 2009, 5:17 a.m. CST

    Further on that-

    by Lost Jarv

    I've really skimmed over the plot as I think a bad review tends to be 300 words telling you the whole fucking film. Rather I've picked bits out that are funny, and ranted about them. Especially Dark Angel. I'll get better- it's been years and I'm hella ring rusty.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:18 a.m. CST

    I see the note now.

    by Mavra Chang

    I'm a little slow. Sorry.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:19 a.m. CST

    by Lost Jarv

    Nope- no instructions, I bow to your better judgement.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:23 a.m. CST

    but I'm kind of looking forward to it.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:31 a.m. CST

    Yup. Doing Disturbance

    by Lost Jarv

    I can't find any quotes from it. I'm sure there must be some somewhere. I also need the synopsis from the cover for it- because that's a big part of the review- just how wrong it is.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:34 a.m. CST

    Jarv

    by Mavra Chang

    If I resize that vault pic to make it larger, it's going to be a little blurry. <p> Is it ok in the original size or do you have a bigger version?

  • April 23, 2009, 5:42 a.m. CST

    Because it isn't called Disturbance

    by Lost Jarv

    despite what it says on the DVD case- it's called either Choker or B.E.I.N.G. WHich is a lame rip off of A*L*I*E*N*S

  • April 23, 2009, 5:47 a.m. CST

    I'll go ahead and post it and let you decide.

    by Mavra Chang

    If you think it needs to be bigger, we can always exchange it.

  • April 23, 2009, 5:51 a.m. CST

    I'll get one

    by Lost Jarv

    I had to cut a large chunk out of the poster. I didn't think about that- do you want the URL of the poster?

  • April 23, 2009, 6:08 a.m. CST

    Well, I have then both up now. They don't look bad at all.

    by Mavra Chang

    Check them and see what you think. <p> I oopsed and did the Dark Angel one first, but then again, that put Troll 2 on top, which really makes sense (if people read downwards).

  • April 23, 2009, 6:10 a.m. CST

    And one more thing.

    by Mavra Chang

    It says posted by Herb because I had to go into the site to upload the vault pic. His is the default name. If there are mistakes, they are mine.

  • April 23, 2009, 6:20 a.m. CST

    so is Herb really not Herb?

    by just pillow talk

    And he got stuck with Herb by default? <p>Nothing was on last night, so I flipping the channels and decide to give a turd a chance: Bulletproof, with Damon Wayans and Sandler. Fuck, I only caught probably the last half hour or so, but that was bad. Real bad.

  • April 23, 2009, 6:25 a.m. CST

    That's the same as me with Star Trek

    My interest went from zero to slightly interested on the strength of the trailers. But since all the whores on this site lined up to swallow JJ's semen it's losing any appeal it had.

    Jarv, awesome reviews over at Mav's site. Whats next? <P> Worst zombie movie? Easy, C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the Chud. Wow, how I hated that movie. And yes, the basic premise was zombies which totally has nothing to do with the original, and also not so good, Chud.

  • April 23, 2009, 7:42 a.m. CST

    The other thing about writing reviews

    Still don't care about Star Trek

    I didn't care to begin with, then I found out it was a prequel, and that managed to make me care even less, the trailer took me back to indifferent, but the sucking off is just woeful.

    Kevin MacDonald has got a couple of...

    by Droid

    interesting flicks in the works. "Eagle of the Ninth," a second-century Roman military drama, and "The End of Eternity," based on the 1955 Isaac Asimov novel, described thusly. Futuristic tale concerns a ruling class called Eternity whose members can manipulate time and alter history. <p>Last King of Scotland was good. I'll probably see State of Play in the next couple of days. I also need to see Entering the Void. Apparently its awesome. One Day in September was great as well.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:03 a.m. CST

    I agree

    it is easier to write about Bad movies that are fun, because it gives you endless mileage to explain why it's fun.

    Max Payne is shit unfortunately

    by Droid

    I was hoping for the best. A Punisher style action-fest, but it's PG13 rubbish. The only thing of note in it is Chris O'Donnell. I didn't realise that bloke was still alive.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:06 a.m. CST

    Eagle of The NInth?

    by Lost Jarv

    I've read that. It's crap

  • April 23, 2009, 8:07 a.m. CST

    One of the ultimate guilty pleasures stars O'Donnell

    by Droid

    VERTICAL LIMIT <p>Fuck I love that stupid flick. It's so shit. So cliched. So dumb. And I love every second of it. Especially Scott Glenns nubs.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:08 a.m. CST

    Last King of Scotland

    by Lost Jarv

    I've seen it twice and first time it was great, but diminishing returns kicked in badly second time out.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:10 a.m. CST

    I've never heard of Eagle of the Ninth

    That's all they seem to post as news these days. It's bullshit.

    There's a DC of Hard Target?

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    With footage that was taken out to avoid an NC-17 rating?????<p>Must. Get. Hands. On. This.<p>I talked with guys who actually landed at Normandy who desperately wanted to run up the beach but were so seasick, exhausted and drenched, they couldn't muster up the energy for anything more than walking speed, which was worrisome as hell because of the wall of hot lead pouring down on them.

  • April 23, 2009, 8:42 a.m. CST

    It's what they fail to report on that's so fucking annoying

    no Outlander, no LVK, no Let The Right One In, <P>Fucking load of bollocks.

    I need to see it NOW!

    "The film runs twenty-two minutes longer (bringing it up to 116 minutes), with a majority of that time being composed of nonstop bloodshed."

  • April 23, 2009, 9:05 a.m. CST

    Maybe I'm not being fair and the

    standard of genre movies has dropped, but this endless masturbation over shit that just isn't for here is annoying.

    I read that description too, Droid

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I was sold at "bloodshed."<p>Jarv, I love the Schlock Vault.<p>Did Harry put up any reviews for Punisher War Zone? Any why does he refuse to cover stories on European/overseas productions and their reviews?<p>Who around here gives a shit about the new director of Twilight? I'd rather learn that Yoko and Harry fucked for 10 straight hours.

  • April 23, 2009, 10:18 a.m. CST

    No, he didn't- because he's a cunt.

    by Lost Jarv

    I've just finished the disturbance review. I've been very rude about it.

    He's just completely lost the plot

    by Lost Jarv

    seriously, fucking twilight, letting his wife have a column that turns out to be poo, GONE, Scriptgirl, that idiotic Emma Frost rant. <P>This is almost as bad as fucking IMDB nowadays.

    Here's the thing with amphibious assault

    by Xiphos_2

    Granted I never have engaged in one but I've trained to, alot, is this. Once the landing ramp goes down the natural tendency is run like a mad man but you can't do that. You have to stay in your squad fromation and not spread out so you can hit enemy postitions with the maximun assault force.<p>The other problem with Amphibious assaults is that beaches tend to be open with very little if no cover or concealment. That's a bad, bad thing.<p>Large scale Airborne operations are even worse. Static line jump operatins, by thier very nature, jumping out of a moving aircraft spreads out the sticks. Free fall jumps are much better, you can stay tight during the fall.

    So I was at Mecca this morning

    by Series7

    And I noticed in the bargain bin dvd troff that they had two dvds with Twitch tag lines on them. Invisible Target and Zombie Diaries? Anyone heard of them? Should I take the chance? Or should I blow more money on Deadpool toys?

  • April 23, 2009, 10:47 a.m. CST

    I've seen both

    by Lost Jarv

    Invisible target is excellent. <P>Zombie Diaries is ropy. It's about 1,000,000 times better than Diary of the Dead and there are some nice touches in it. If it's only a couple of dollars, then buy it.

    I remember seeing CHUD 2 as a kid on a saturday afternoon

    by D.Vader

    Completely ridiculous. I seem to remember it being sorta, I dunno, light and campy, like a family zombie film? And I thought "Wasn't CHUD supposed to be scary? What is this crap?"

    Afternoon, employed types

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    On the plus side, I have spent the day listening to Muddy Waters and re-reading The Corner by David Simon and Edward Burns (the good Edward Burns, not that smug dick actor guy). It goes nicely with all The Wire I'm watching lately.<p>On the negative side, I do not have a job.

  • April 23, 2009, 10:57 a.m. CST

    I see... Herb's post is gone?

    by D.Vader

    So confused.

    Who has alternate names they use to fuck around with?

    by D.Vader

    I found that idea to be, I dunno, a bit of a waste of time. At least here on AICN. Unless all you wanted to do was really insult someone proper who deserved it, I'd rather just use my own name and let people make conclusions about me based on my wide range of behaviors.

    In film-related news

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Did two double features recently.<p>The double feature of films with Elisha Cuthbert and the word 'Quiet' in the title - The Quiet, which was solid but forgettable, and He Was A Quiet Man, which I liked until it got all serious at the end.<p>Then there was the double feature of old-school buddy cop melarkey - Dark Angel, which was pretty good, and Red Heat, which was just okay.<p>That'll be 147 for the year. I think I'm behind schedule to make 500, so I may clear a day next week and find a bunch of something to watch. Fuck knows what, though.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:01 a.m. CST

    Punisher War Zone

    by Series7

    Man that was an awesome movie. Too bad Max Payne won't be as good. But I saw Punisher, sober and in the middle of the day and loved the shit out of it. He fucking punches through a dudes face, how awesome is that.

    by D.Vader

    I think he saw Danny was Egg and then got angry at himself for reacting/and responding. Like "Oh Danny you DICK! You fooled me, you bastard!"

    Doesn't he race cars or somesuch? What job were you doing? I know that name from somewhere, but for some reason all I'm coming up with is King Of The Hill. Fuck knows why.<p>Job search has only started this week, so not much to report. I'm in first gear at the moment because the weather's nice, I've got enough money to last me a few months, and I'm really enjoying loafing about and reading and whatnot.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:21 a.m. CST

    I'm not too sure about awesome, Jarv

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Pretty good, and enjoyable in the 80s way a lot of action films were back then with all the enormous fireballs and cars flipping over and whatnot, but it didn't live up to my memory of it. And those were some lame aliens.<p>And I was thinking, was Sam Raimi the first guy to do that shot where the camera follows the flying spinny thing? I've seen it ripped off loads of times, and I always think of that as being a Raimi shot, but did anyone else do it before Crimewave?

  • April 23, 2009, 11:25 a.m. CST

    I thought it was Raimi

    by Lost Jarv

    I can't think of where I've seen it before that.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:27 a.m. CST

    It's a very Raimi type of shot

    by Lost Jarv

    it also reminded me of the opening to Naked Gun with the cop car.

    ITV4 are circling back around on themselves

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    They've been a pretty dependable source of trashy action stuff, but I've noticed lately they['re starting to show a bunch of films I've already seen this year.<p>Those bastards. Don't they realise I'm lagging behind schedule in the 500 films challenge?

  • April 23, 2009, 11:32 a.m. CST

    ITV 2 are doing the same as are 5US

    by Lost Jarv

    they were 3 channels that I was pretty guaranteed to get a film I hadn't seen this year off. It's making it hard.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:33 a.m. CST

    Danny DeVito ripped it off twice

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Once in War Of The Roses, then again - years later, when he thought no one would notice - in Death To Smoochy. Thieving little bastard.<p>I should watch Crimewave again. I know Raimi hates it, but I always liked that goofy mix of elements it had.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:34 a.m. CST

    I'm on 150 and need to be on about 160

  • April 23, 2009, 11:41 a.m. CST

    See what I don't get is

    by Series7

    That I probably have the most free time here seeing that I only work three days a week because I can't find a real job. But I'm like 100 movies behind. But I think at the same time I'm way ahead when it comes to TV. I've been thinking about doing more TV at Mavras, the problem is that you can't really review TV unless you see it before hand. Like giving a positive review after the fact seems moot.

  • April 23, 2009, 11:42 a.m. CST

    I just read your Dark Angel review

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    Pretty funny. When you describe it like that, I forget that I've only just seen it and wasn't too impressed. You make it sound like a film I would like to see again, but I've already deleted it. That's a shame.<p>Fuck, it's all going on over at Mavra's. I resolve to finish my epic Rocky review this weekend and send it over to Mavra on Monday.
