Harry's DVD PICKS & PEEKS: 3rd wk of Aug 2010: A Juggalo Western, Coppola's CONVERSATION, Miley Cyrus' LAST SONG (we wish)!!!

Hey folks, Harry here… and looky, it is on time! Well, you can thank the rather limited options I had to choose from this week. Last week and our next week are pretty damn strong, but this week – aside from a few releases… well… you’ll see. I didn’t put the latest season of DEXTER on here, because I feel very inadequate talking about that show – as I know it deserves an enthusiastic HARRY – but I haven’t really gotten caught up in DEXTER and that would show horribly, but it is a series that enough friends are badgering me to watch in its entirety – so one day, I hope to be in love with the show… I’m just not there yet. As usual, the images and titles link to AMAZON – where you can learn more or purchase the item – which would be awfully nice of ya, as a portion of that price goes to help support this column. So thank you in advance. Now – go buy a copy of THE CONVERSATION, you’ve been waiting forever for that one, trust me! Here ya go… Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

BLACK ORPHEUS (Criterion Blu)
Here’s another vintage WOW from Criterion Blu – so far my favorite company putting vintage Blus out. This won Best Foreign Film back in its day – and helped bring a latin beat to the United States in 1952. And yes, this is an adaptation of that great Greek Myth – and takes it somewhere amazingly colorful and musical. Criterion does their standard brilliance on this disc – in particular watching this is another way of showing folks just how amazing films from half a century ago look on Blu. The cinematography on this film is one for the records. Stunning stunning colors. The single greatest release of this week! New, restored high-definition digital transfer Uncompressed monaural soundtrack Optional English-dubbed soundtrack Archival interviews with director Marcel Camus and actress Marpessa Dawn New video interviews with Robert Stam, Gary Giddins, and Ruy Castro A la recherche d' "Orfeu negro," a feature-length documentary Theatrical trailer PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film critic Michael Atkinson

I can’t wait for Craig Brewer’s FOOTLOOSE. In all the ways that this is a soulless piece of spoonfed drivel, that film will live and soar. THE LAST SONG is the latest teen porn from the author of THE NOTEBOOK. Oh sure – there’s no actual sex in the film, there’s not even any skin beyond the 27 ab squares above Liam Hemsworth’s KEN-Doll nub. This film literally sent Yoko running to go to sleep the other night. I stuck with it I’m sorry to say – and ya know – Greg Kinnear wanted to be in a good movie. I can see it in his performance. The only problem? Miley Cyrus and the other actors of her generation on display here are about as real as sitcom kids ever get. Which is, not at all. Or maybe they’re exactly correct, and that’s why SCOTT PILGRIM didn’t make giant money this weekend. Because this is a crazy majority of a certain part of youth culture today. This is a film about losing one’s virginity the summer where that wouldn’t be her greatest loss. The problems facing her are mainly concerning gossip and class struggles. That said, it is an incredibly ‘safe world’ – where everyone goes to church, dad makes stained glass windows for the church, and she’s a brilliantly talented musical talent that just doesn’t want to be what everyone expects her to be. So, ya know it’s hard. This is the fantasy where you can scuba dive with your boyfriend in the multimillion dollar aquarium – and that’s the reason Miley made the movie, to swim in that Aquarium and to soak up some class from Greg, which doesn’t really work, it just makes her seem all the more vinyl. And not the groovy kind. It’d be easy to be dismissive of this, but this pap made two and a half times what SCOTT PILGRIM did – and that’s a very real reason to fret about American youth. Seriously. At what point will this particular audience Rock? Or will Miley own them to the grave? Will Nicholas Sparks be this audience’s John Hughes – god, that got me to cough up some bile. It is a sickening thought – it’s just kind of sad.

I suppose at some level this is supposed to be funny. Thankfully, I seem to be immune. So instead I watched this with the same dumbstruck frat boy trying to run 50 yards with a hot dog weiner squeezed between his ass cheeks – a disgusted feeling of being exploited every second that it was on. This is a truly staggeringly inept work. And continues to make GODS AND MONSTERS seem like a miracle.

A show created by one of AICN’s fondest past writers – and I watch every week amazed that Kevin is able to be as filthy as he is on a Disney show that is oddly subversive and funny. I just have to celebrate the release of a dear friend’s first created TV Series, you go Kevin! But I do prefer SCRUBS – the show he worked on prior to this. And I miss reading his reviews.

If you love MST3K – this is a film made intentially for you. Now the problem is this. With a little more effort, for this same kind of budget and acting – they could intentionally attempt to make a very good movie. Something like MONOLITH MONSTERS or FIEND WITHOUT A FACE – and that would make me so much happier than intentionally hammy acting. I know I’m supposed to just have fun with it, but I have a very strong love and appreciation for the films of the 40’s through mid-60’s that a film like this is kinda riffing on. I keep wondering if someone with a retro-love will attempt to make a film as good as the classics of the genre. And do it for real. Best to watch this with friends and have fun having fun with it. By yourself, it’s easy to be a grump about it.

Feels like Dinner Theater caught on film. Made by the same folks that were behind LOST SKELETON OF CADAVERA and the above sequel. Here they’re doing that Old Dark House type of thing, but if OLD DARK HOUSE were tone-deaf. This just isn’t for me. I just respect the genre and prefer a straighter take on all of this. But then, I’m not a MST3Ker either.

HAMLET (Blu-Book)
Amongst my favorite Charlton Heston performances is contained in Branagh’s HAMLET – a gorgeous treasure of a film. That said, the film seemed oddly flat on Blu Ray. I don’t think that is a problem with the transfer so much as my 70mm memory which shows the limits of 1080p easily. I know many of you have never been lucky enough to see a 70mm film. But to see a film like HAMLET or DR ZHIVAGO or 2001 in its native 70mm… it’s just unforgettable. It is a portal to another realm. That said, the opulence of this release is clearly on display, I just hope Warners keeps high quality 70mm prints available for the venues that can play them – as a film like this truly can reveal the beauty of the best that film can look. I hope this version of Branagh shows up for THOR. I hope.

Moriarty’s quote whoring aside, this film really is ridiculous fun. This is a film that will increase your pulse rate and make you believe in a hyper-real cinematic universe that is many times cooler than our own. THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD is just one of those films that is just amazing to watch. Some of the stunts are truly jaw-dropping in a kind of Errol Flynn wow kinda way. Just… they went for it, ya know? Probably the single most fun Korean film I’ve ever seen. It is pretty devoid of incest and those other dark subject matters usually found in Korean films. Well – other than PRIVATE EYE… but that awesome film still doesn’t have a US distributor. Brilliant film though. Just awesome!

I really hope we get a Blu Ray release of the whole of season one… but I’m betting we’re screwed. They’re also being real bad on this particular series doing 3 tiny releases out of this season, then a first half of the season – then we’ll get a second half of the season, then a full season – and then maybe if we’re all good lil sheep we’ll get a Blu Ray. Personally, I’d hold off. Unless you can’t. In which case… you don’t really need my advice, you’ve made a decision – the show is way fucking cool and you know that. Good stuff here, just half as much as I wanted.

Is it true? Is this really the first time this has come to DVD? I suppose it is ludicrous of me to expect a Blu-Ray anytime soon… so I’ll just continue to treasure my 16mm print – of this, my very favorite Gene Hackman performance ever. I know I’m supposed to say Popeye Doyle and THE FRENCH CONNECTION – but I think when I bought my 16mm print of THE CONVERSATION… back before this film was available on VHS… and I was the one guy that anyone knew that could watch THE CONVERSATION on demand… it became MY GENE HACKMAN movie – and I showed it to folks repeatedly. Watching not just the nuance of Hackman’s brilliant HARRY Caul… yeah, his character name is Harry. I don’t mind admitting that I love that. I love what a prick Harrison Ford is in the film. I love “Shirley” in the film – and this side of THE DION BROTHERS, Frederic Forrest hasn’t been better. But the pure staggering genius of this film is Coppola’s direction & writing – and the BRILLIANT sound design by Walter Murch. So much of this film is about SOUND. A brilliant double feature with BLOW OUT, watch THE CONVERSATION first though. Remember that. If you’ve never seen THE CONVERSATION, and I’m betting a majority of those that read this column have probably never had the opportunity to – this is a major victory for this brilliant film. Now – Coppola… call Criterion and let’s get the great release that this underseen masterpiece deserves. Hell – do a remaster and get it out in theaters. Give people a chance to see this the right way. This is easily one of the top films of the 70s. A towering decade of cinema. Discover Harry Caul. You’ll be very glad you did. If you love this and BLOW OUT. Let me recommend KLUTE, THE PARALLAX VIEW and 3 DAYS OF THE CONDOR. But THE CONVERSATION is king.

I’m buying this. Because this could be some strange existential form of genius – if nothing else – support it for their attempt to end the reality embarrassment of Tila Tequila. Have you seen the trailer for this yet? Here… behold…

How is that not the greatest curiousity train wreck of awesome you’ve seen since MIRACLES? I mean. This exists. Can you imagine everything else in this movie? I mean… they’re evil old west clown thugs. It could very well be the scariest most ridiculous thing ever shat from the minds of humans. I can’t wait to wipe it up. I seriously might write up a full on review when I see it. I’m drawn to it like a fly to shit. I can’t wait.

L’ENFANCE NUE (Criterion Collection)
I would recommend before ever adopting a near teenage child with a troubled history, to watch this film. Pialat’s film captures almost exactly what I’ve heard many experiences with this type of adoption. I wouldn’t call it harrowing, but it is a slap to the face. It wakes you up to some very harsh realities about this type of experience. Brilliant film. Amazingly powerful. L'amour existe, director Maurice Pialat's 1960 short film Choses vues, autour de "L'enfance nue," a fifty-minute documentary Excerpts from a 1973 French television interview with Pialat New visual essay by critic Kent Jones Video interview with Pialat collaborators New and improved English subtitle translation A booklet featuring an essay by critic Phillip Lopate

This is a softcore sex comedy that kinda reminds me of Robert Altman’s THE PLAYER, but more cynical – and less accomplished (obviously) – but I really enjoyed this crazy film. But this is good seventies softcore sex comedy work. And this is how Hollywood is run. Seriously. Well, maybe not too seriously. Heh.
Like I said, this week was pretty weak. But next week… you get the final season of LOST, the 13th season of THE SIMPSONS, TIME BANDITS on Blu, George Romero’s SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD, DORIAN GRAY, SHOGUN ASSASSIN (Blu), Three Silent Classics by Josef Von Sternberg, THE SQUARE on Blu, MACHINE GUN MCCAIN on Blu, WITHNAIL AND I on Blu, AJAMI, MONA LISA on Blu, THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY on Blu, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: REANIMATED, NINJAS VS ZOMBIES… that’s right, I said NINJAS VS ZOMBIES – did your mind just ejaculate snot out your nose? Cuz that phrase made my brain drool too. Sadly, the grown up that is tied firmly to the rocking horse keeps whispering that it probably definitely sucks. I’ll be finding out soon enough – it’s on the top of the stack next to the computer. Yup, I dare to dream. Only way to be.

    It is brilliant. And I have you to thank for showing it to me in my impressionable teen years. Respect to the Godfathers, but The Conversation is a little higher on my personal preference list.<BR><BR>There was a DVD before this put out by Paramount.

    Because I've always loved young love stories, though I hate the Miley efforts thus far. There's a blandness that just wasn't there in my Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick attempts when I was that age growing up. The disparity of quality is truly mind-numbing and something concerning when thinking about a generation growing up with this shit.

    The Conversation Sandwich Triple Feature

    by BGDAWES

    Harry, I'm so damn jealous of you that you actually have a 16 mm print of The Conversation! <br> <br> You mentioned a good double feature to pair The Conversation with but let me add another title to make the trifecta: <br> <br> Blowup <br> The Conversation <br> Blow Out <br> <br> Three of my favorite films of all time with the later two inspired by the first. Great column Harold, thanks for keeping up. <br> <br> "Listen, my name is Harry Caul. Can you hear me? Don't be afraid. I know you don't know who I am, but I know you. There isn't much to say about myself. I - was very sick when I was a boy. I was paralyzed in my left arm and my left leg. I couldn't walk for six months. One doctor said that I'd probably never walk again. My mother used to lower me into a hot bath - it was therapy. One time the doorbell rang and she went down to answer it. I started sliding down. I could feel the water starting to come up to my chin, up to my nose, and when I woke up, my body was all greasy from the holy oil she put on my body. I remember being disappointed I survived. When I was five, my father introduced me to a friend of his, and for no reason at all, I hit him right in the stomach with all my strength. He died a year later. He'll kill ya if he gets the chance. I'm not afraid of death but I am afraid of murder."

    That BIG MONEY RUSTLAS thing is not intended to be in the least bit serious. It's from this whole big Insane Clown Posse cult kinda thing. Gangsta rap, hardcore deathmatch wrestling... Personally I don't think anything they're ever done should be taken too seriously, and I feel no shame in admitting some of their albums are so sick and hostile they're hilarious. I wouldn't watch this movie, though. I'm guessing it's a sequel to their other movie, BIG MONEY HUSTLAS? Well anyway, this whole big ICP cult refer to themselves as "Juggalos". And if you really want to see some wild shit, go to Youtube and track down any kind of IWA-Mid South wrestling..that's what ICP are all about. The 'Tequila Deathmatch' is a personal fave. Well, now I'm proud. I have truly contributed something great to the AICN talkbacks. Ugh, just kidding. I loved HAMLET and admired that it was a much more complete version than Franco/Mel's version. And HEY!!! When do we finally get our NIGHTBREED remaster/special edition?

    I resent the implication that MST3K fans aren't classic film fans or don't have respect for the material they spoof. MST3K is my favorite series. However, from a very young age, I've been a fan of Old Hollywood films from the 20's through the 60's. I watch those more than I watch modern films. I also recognize that most if not all of them were made more for the sake of commerce and not necessarily art. There's nothing wrong with pointing out the ridiculous and having fun with film. Nothing is sacred.

    What a blast from the past! I hope there are some extras. The dvd I have is pretty bare. In the closing credits I have always noticed someone playing "Horseflesh", a bandit referred to in the film but never seen. Can we get some deleted footage perhaps? New Gilliam commentary? Where is a really golden shiny BARON MUCHAUSEN special edition? We need that! And a fucking NIGHTBREED director's cut. And I'm pleased to see I'm not the only one who feels that way about Miley. I agree with Bodacious_Crumb, I think she'll start with Maxim. Either that or one of those "artistic" black and white Playboy shoots, where she's all naked on a beach and nude and most of the time just uses a handbra. But WHAT THE HELL: handbras rock!

    You've GOT to get going on Dexter. It's an excellent show. S1 was awesome, S2 even better. S3 was a bit of a dropoff, but still good thanks to Jimmy Smits. But S4 that came out today is a masterpiece. John Lithgow's Trinity killer is incredibly creepy, switching from teacher to family man to abuser to raving lunatic with such effortlessness, if he doesn't win the Emmy for it it's a sham! Seriously, oh ginger one, even if you don't watch the other seasons watch S4 for Lithgow. And the ending of the season is one of the more shocking, unexpected turns I've seen on TV in a while. <p>It's gold, Jerry! GOLD!

    Yes, if you've just got it sitting there then don't hesitate to pop that bad boy in! I recommend getting seriously wasted first though. Caligula is not a great movie by any stretch, but it is probably the closest thing to how fucked up the Romans were ever put on film. Plus it has great performances by Malcom MacDowell, Helen Mirren and Peter O'Toole. Also, Tinto Brass is a very underrated director and one of the best Euro softcore filmmakers out there. Especially if you're an ass man. And if nothing else, Caligula delvers in the sex and skin depravity department.

    The Conversation on DVD

    by THX1968

    Indeed, The Conversation was released on DVD years ago and it was a very good transfer. I believe it was the same week I got McQueen and Pekinpah's The Getaway. I can't believe The Conversation is such an under seen flick. I guess I assumed most people were as consumed by it's brilliance as I am. Hackman is so good in this film. He isn't particularly likable, but it is facinating watching extreme paranioa take hold of his Harry Caul. He actually reprised the role (in spirit) in Enemy of the State, with Will Smith. Those with keen eyes will spot Hackman as Harry Caul in a CIA database photo. But I digress. People must see The Conversation. It is Coppola's first truly classic film. Total brilliance.

    it's one thing if you just don't dig the show... but to leave it off the list entirely, and then give some lame cop-out about how you're not "enthusiastic" enough and "caught up in it" enough to include it in the list. i guess this means you were more caught up in and enthusiastic about Furry Vengeance? seriously, you could put it in the list and then talk shit all about it and how you don't feel qualified to discuss it there, but at least you'd still have one of your amazon-pimping links to go along with it. why do you want to keep people from buying Dexter, while helping them buy shitty tv shows like Cougar Town and movies like Furry Vengeance? do you really think your readers would be more interested in those DVDs than in Dexter? if for nothing else, at least give john lithgow props for his amazing performance last season. seriously, which of the Dexter producers pissed in your guys cornflakes to earn this kind of shitty treatment?

    Conversation is overated

    by denirogator1

    I watched the Conversation about 18 years ago with a fellow film geek, and we hated it. We couldn't believe how much talent was wasted in the most dull movie of all time. It's absurdly praised, yet it's absurdly boring. It's one of those films where it seems people like to say how good it is, because it makes them feel smarter to say that. Many of those 70's flix that everyone hails as brilliant are really dull (chinatown, five easy pieces, klute, etc). It's possible to make a smart movie that is also highly entertaining. But, I will watch the conversation again just to see if I feel the same way I did back then.

    John_McClanes_Vest, with Caligula you need

    by jim

    to know what you're getting into. Not a "film for the whole family", nor is it one you want to screen for your History class on ancient Rome. Graphic sex and graphic violence are the hallmarks of this film. On the other hand, while the sex is graphic, it's not what one might call "sexy". There's a scene at a banquet where the feaster are gorging themselves, puke, then continue to eat. The sex comes across in much the same way. It's consumption due to availability and addictive compulsion, not desire or even need. However, it works as the sex scenes simply heightened the sense of depravity and despair that Caligula's reign was known for.<p>Not a movie I've ever felt comfortable recommending to anyone but one that is worth a viewing to anyone who feels they can handle it. If you're not easily offended or grossed out, give it a look. It does have some great performances and is interesting in how the film itself is something of a celebration of the excesses and depravity that Caligula was known for.

And let's not even get into the new 12 thousand frames a second modes that make wheeling out of the spaceship at the beginning of Avatar look more real than I remember IMAX 3D.

His wife went to bed halfway through The Last Song, therefore it's a bad movie (not because it really probably is a shitty movie). If his wife had been blowing him while he was watching it, he would have waxed lyrical about what a charming little love story it is and how promising a young actress Miley is. <p> P.S.

My guess is that maybe the new DVD has better picture since the Paramount one came out in 2000, but who knows. I do know by that point Paramount was doing anamorphic and putting more effort into their releases.

    The curent one (which is out of print) is bare bones. I think it's one of the few De Palma movies on DVD that doesn't have a documentary on it.

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    I'm in Houston and, according to the locations I went to, none of the Best Buy's or the Fry's in the area received any. They all show it as releasing today, but no one got them nor show them as coming. Both places told me that usually means it was delayed. Do you know if it actually came out today?

    Random Thoughts

    by Wrath4771

    Miley will not rule for long. There was a time we feared Brittney and N'Sync. Cougartown was arguably my favorite new show last year - it flips back and forht with Modern Family, but bottom line - good, good, good show.

    Local Fury After Memorial Desecrated By Cyrus

    by Stuntcock Mike

    Veterans have demanded a woman be jailed later this week after she was caught urinating on a war memorial, and then performing a sex act <p> Miley Cyrus was branded "Britain's most disgusting person" after admitting outraging public decency at Blackpool Magistrates' Court. <p> Old soldiers formed a "guard of dishonour" when she appeared, hours late, for the hearing before JPs. <p> Veterans believe she should be put behind bars to set an example to others. <p> Drunken Cyrus, 17, of Nashville, Tennessee, was seen relieving herself on the town's Cenotaph by CCTV operators in June. <p> When police arrived they found her performing a sex act on a man sitting on the memorial. As she put it, "I'm almost not underage anymore. Super wet. Fuck, I CANNOT BE TAYYYYYYEMD!!!!!!!!!" <p> Conservative councillor Julian Mineur, a former soldier and an organiser of Shop for Heroes, set up to help veterans in the resort, said: "The veterans community are outraged at this sort of action, particularly by a foreigner, taking place on a consecrated piece of ground. <p> "We feel a strong message has to be sent out this sort of thing should not be tolerated and is despicable. <p> "The Cenotaph is sacrosanct. There is a huge amount of public outrage on this in the town and across the country." <p> Cyrus' case was adjourned on Friday for the preparation of pre-sentence reports. She is now scheduled to be sentenced this Friday.

    Quint's Movie A Day got me to watch "The Cowboys"

    by jim

    It supplanted "The Searchers" as my favourite John Wayne movie (which now is fourth, being bumped down by "The Quiet Man" and "The Shootist").<p><br>"Entertainment Weekly ran a talk back asking people for their most overrated films of all time. I actually expected to see Chinatown, but it wasn't there. What was there, The Godfather, Lawrence of Arabia, Dr Zhivago, Bridge on the River Kwai(people really hate Lean)"<p>That, and I think they hate 3-hour movies. I guess the rule is, if the movie runs longer than your laptop or portable DVD player or phone's battery charge, it's too long and therefore overrated.

    I'd like this DVD page to go in depth...

    by andrew coleman

    Instead of just listing titles that are out. I can look that up easily, I'd like to know which has the best special features. I do like that he posts movies I would never know about that does help. But putting on big time releases and with little information about them I find pointless. I'm with Harry on sometimes being upset that some movies make more than others but in the end who gives a shit? The movies you like you can buy and watch forever if you like. The shitty one's that come out and make millions upon millions a lot of the time are forgotten about. I brought up the second Transformers movie with some friends to talk about how horrible movies can get. And my friend goes "They made a second one?... Oh that's right I totally forgot about it" As did other people in the group. That movie came out last summer. So who gives a shit if Miley's movie made more than Pilgrim it just proves what we all know already: That there are more idiots out there than smart people.

    Actually, depending on your opinion of the movie, he was quite good in The Mummy. The first. Only the first. And he was good in his short role on Scrubs. In fact, he should go the Charlie Sheen route and try TV. Sheen's made a shitload of cash, and Fraser couldn't do worse than Furry Vengence.

    Blamire is a freakin' genius...

    by Dasinfogod

    The guy isn't making fun of classic genre movies nor does he share much in common with MST3K sensibilities. The Bantam Street Blamire Things are deeply affectionate riffs on a style, not pointed satire or parody.<p>The players (yes, a stagy stock company!) are utterly serious and never winking at the audience because the cast are PLAYING actors acting in a genre movie. The actors are in on the joke, but not the actors they are portraying.<p>Something like last year's ALIEN TRESPASS tried and failed miserably because of the framing device of the "found movie" telegraphed the movie-within-a-movie ham-handely; it also lacked Blamire's wit and wordplay.<p>I know Harry is very sensitive about classic genre films being picked on by snarky hipsters, but SKELETON and STORMY are not flame jobs. And they are certainly light years better than most dinner theatre. Hey, if Bob Burns can don his gorilla suit and run around the Blamire's mansion set, that's about as ringing an endorsement as I can think of. Kogar rules!

    Harry Knowles & Christopher Hitchens

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    What do they have in common. <p> With Hitchens there would be no one on earth that agrees with every one of his beliefs, you can't pigeon hole him into being a liberal or conservative, his beliefs are a mix i.e. he is a proponent of Karl Marx whilst fully supporting the Iraq War, he has been described as a contrarian maybe thats his label. <p> Reading Harry's movie reviews I feel the same, surely there would not be a single person alive that has a very similar taste to Harry, with someone like Ebert or Travers (even the likes of Beaks and Capone on this site) I find a level of consistency in their reviews, what they like, what they appreciate, what is important to them, I can almost guess based on other reviews how Ebert and Travers will see a movie. With Harry I have no idea, the cynic in me and with many people may say that he appreciates movies that appeals to 14 year old boys (i.e. Expendables, Nightmare on Elm Street, Speed Racer), but then in this DVD column we see how he appreciates classic movies like The Coversation. <p> We all have differing tastes I loved Inception, whilst at the same time had a lot of fun with Kick Ass, but to my point don't think there would be too many people with such different taste, almost random as with the case with Harry.

    Brendan Fraser is great in:

    by palimpsest

    GODS AND MONSTERS, THE PASSION OF DARKLY NOON, THE MUMMY and he gets a pass for appearing in KIDS IN THE HALL: BRAIN CANDY and THE QUIET AMERICAN (tho he got acted off the screen by Michael Caine there). He's one of all too many actors who's only as good as his material. Maybe someone will take a chance on him and save him from sliding into Martin Lawrence / Eddie Murphy territory...

    The whole ICP thing

    by liljuniorbrown

    Why would you attend something to be entertained and then throw shit at every act? It wasn't just Tila Tequila.They threw shit at Method Man, and the wrestlers that the ICP hired to entertain their fucking fanbase. I bet you anything because of the lawsuits there will not be another "gathering" for a long ass time if ever at all. Tila Tequila had no business perfoming at this or any event.She's not a good singer and should stick to stripping or modeling or what ever it is she got famous for to begin with. If you want to youtube the group "wrestling",try looking up where a 6'9 300 pound wrestler named Mike Awesome beat the shit out of them so bad they quit the company as fast as they could and tried legal action. It's funny, Harry you have no problem with violence against women and enjoy sick shit in movies like graphic rape and torture yet you ban someone for calling you out on some dumb shit. Grow a set man.

Throw in punk rock music from London, the clothes, NYC and those cities before they cleaned up their image, music videos still in their infancy, groups like the cars and others bringing a new sound to the airwaves. You know it was good to be young at that time. Debbie Harry and Pat were the bad girls you had at high school that you lusted after but the crowd they hung with scared the shit out of you. Album covers were great. But again that sound killed disco (yeah) and taped into a generation ready to step up and shake up the music industry. And thats always a good thing.

    Hannah Montana was a good image

    by leo54304

    for the girls that it was targeted to. Think about it, Hannah the singing pop star everybody loved is something most girls daydream about (Much like boys do about pro athletes). She loved her dad, had best friend she shared everything with, when she got in trouble she learned a lesson. And now Miley is trying to shed that image, I understand. Its time to move on but not to that of a pole dancer look. Want to be treated like an adult then look and act like one. Dressing like a skank and pretending to kiss another girl onstage in a sleazy choreography dance routine aint the way to go. Miley, I wish you the best but honey this isnt the route to take.

    by leo54304

    Thing is Katy first was introduced to us with "I kissed a girl" song and had the whole Betty Page look going. Miley as you've posted has been forced to keep that young teenager look and now wants to move on. Wish she'd just tone down the sexuality a bit. However, she hasn't gone down the Lohan road of destruction and want her to succeed. Although with her vocals being of limited talent, advise she move to movies but right now thats now much better.

    either alone or with each other. My stepsister and her friend used to do it all the time in her room. Too bad door was shut and locked, so no telling just what went on in there. Was a lot of giggling though. Guess you can just add the poledancing bit as part of the routine. Tell ya though, I wouldn't mind having a look at Miley working it. One of my girlfriends gave me a private dance at my place and it may not have been professional but we had fun. We also were doing stripper/customer roleplaying which really made it hotter.

Perhaps Zooey can fly in for Thanksgiving; I'll have the turkey baster out of the cupboard already anyway<p> Katie Perry is another one of those whore-singers I don't get. Her music appeals to WOMEN, yet she dresses like a slut for GUYS (or lesbians) and therefore must expect us (the guys) to objectify her. Why set yourself up? We'll never like your music.

    THE CONVERSATION is just one of the top best movie ever made in the 70s. Many are more spectacular, but very few are better.<br><br>Keneth Branagh's HAMLET is an excelent movie, in it's full 240 minutes version. Avoid any shorted versions which are pure bastardizations. It's the only film version of the play so far that contains the whole play. Branagh himself even inserved a whole new line of dialogue which consists of the one word "Attack!".<br><br>I have been lucky enough to have seen Branagh's HAMLET and 2001: A SPACE ODDYSSEY in the theater and in 70mmm. Harry is absolutly right, you don't really know those movies until you have seen them in thr silver screen in it's proper format. Specialy 2001. Watching 2001 in a theater projected in 70mm is like watching the movie in IMAX. It's total immertion. No blu-ray can even begin to compare, no matter how much ,high definitionyour big room TV is and how many kilowatts of sound power of your sound system. Nothing compares, nothing!<br><br>THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD is pure total fun wrapped around in a damn good movie. It's the best hommage to THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE VILLAIN i ever seen while still working as a movie on it's own right. And as usual, Song Kang-ho steals the show. He is fast becoming one of my top favorite actors.<br><br>SCOTT PILGRIM is the boy's version of a TWILIGHT movie. It's though shit that the female TWILIGH-like movies make gangbuster busienss while their male conterpart don't. Well, seems that there's a bigger market made of frustrated housewives past their prime and stupidly over-romantic dumb teen girls then there is for sexually frustrated nerdboys. Such is life.

    Cougar Town season 1

    by leo54304

    First episode had Courtney going out with her much younger assistant and friend out for a night on the town. Start getting snapshots of her and friends partying to the tune of Beyonces "Should have put a ring on it". photos get more wild as Courtney and friends drunker. Including her peeing in a guys john and grabbing a cops gun. Very funny show with "intersting" characters. Another funny scene is when she trys to show her son and his girlfriend how condoms can break using a balloon as an example and failing.

  • Aug. 20, 2010, 9:09 a.m. CST


    by AsimovLives

    Everybody involved in WILD WILD WEST wished they had 1/10th of the talent of the people who made THE GOOD THE BAD THE WEIRD. GOOD THE BAD THE WEIRD is so good, that 5 minutes into the movie you stop discussing the logic of a western movie set in pre-WWII Manchuria. The movie makes Japan-conquered Manchuria look like 19th century Texas or Mexico, and yet you don't evne bother to discuss the logic of the thing. anbd Harry is right, the stunts in display in the movie are phenomenal, it's all do-it-in-camera style, no CGI in sight. The stunts are notorious in 3 sequences, an early action scene set in a moving train, a huge shoot-out in a huge shantytown, and a chase that involves the 3 lead characters and a whole battalion of japanese cavalry while they get heavily bombed by heavy artillery. One has to see it to believe! Truly, GOOD THE BAD THE WEIRD is the kind of movie that is no second to anything made in Hollywood while done on a 1/10th of the usual blockbuster pricetag. And it's direced by the guy who made the brillant A TALE OF TWO SISTERS and the equally brillant A BITTERSWEET LIFE. This guy's talent has no bounds.
