Muldoon At Fantastic Fest 2010: RED HILL And BUNRAKU...

Merrick here...
We've published a number of Muldoon's reviews in the past - he's now at Fantastic Fest sending along thoughts about some of the films he's checking out this year. First up? RED HILL and BUNRAKU...

RED HILL

I’ll try to stay as spoiler free as possible, so don’t expect a play by play. Today my mind was blown. The film kicks off with Shane Cooper [TRUE BLOOD’s RYAN KWANTEN] reporting to his new job with the local police department after transferring into a new small town. His first day gets “complicated” when an infamous murderer escapes from jail. When the gun-toting outlaw arrives in town, he makes his presence known as he begins to pick off the local cops one by one. Each kill is smart, well paced, and just fucking cool. As the body count rises, the film’s protagonist, Cooper, struggles to keep up as everyone around him either gets knocked off or cowers in the town’s shadows. Not everything seems Over the course of this cat and mouse game, Cooper begins to question the killer’s motives after outlaw “Jimmy,” played by the legendary Tommy Lewis [THE PROPOSITION] spares his life after a tense run in. He soon unravels a sinister connection between Jimmy and the town’s past… Director Patrick Hughes has undoubtedly created one of the most distinct western heroes on film to date. As a first time director, Hughes seems to really have an eye for creating striking visuals, intense action , and the ability to pack it all into a fast paced exciting movie that demands it’s place in the Cowboy Hall of fame. It’s obvious the man clearly loves, understands, and has what it takes to bring the Cowboy western back to the theater. HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER, HIGH NOON , and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN all clearly inspired this movie, yet at no point did this film feel anything but fresh and fun. I don’t watch TRUE BLOOD, but RYAN KWANTEN shows his chops and clearly has some skills. I walked into RED HILL knowing nothing at all about the film. Not only did I walk out wanting to catch up on all the old Eastwood flicks, but wishing they’d screen the movie again directly after. If you want a real balls to the wall western movie, this is it.



BUNRAKU

Okay, so I had just gotten out of HATCHET 2 (which is everything you could ask for from popcorn slasher flick) and saw BUNRAKU was seating. I randomly chose a ticket to the film the day before based only on the name. While I don't live under a rock, I had no clue this film existed. Only later did I find out our very own Quint got to check out the set a while back. As I sat in one of the nearest rows to the screen (it was that packed when I went in) I was shocked to find so many people in the audience, namely an entire row of teenage girls giggling like little school girls. The thing sold out and I still had no fucking clue what the film was about. Then came up to the front, director Guy Moshe who introduced two of the film's leads Kevin McKidd, and Josh Hartnett. Now I understood why there were so many females in the audience... The film starts out with an incredibly theatrical fight scene, though there wasn't much of a fight since McKidd's character, "Killer 2" pretty much obliterated an entire gang. The narrator provided us with the basic setup - there is a complete badass, "Nicola" played by none other than Ron Fucking Perlman who runs the town from his house overlooking the city. He has with him a gang of ten killers as his bodyguards/ successors. McKidd's character, Killer 2, is the villain we get to know the best throughout the film, and he kicks the flick off with an amazingly well crafted "How dare you even think to fuck with me" beat down. The city is over run by Nicola's peons, think classy Foot Soldiers dressed in all red. The city is in a stronghold by this crime lord who just so happens to have the Mayor and the Chief of police over as regulars at his exclusive poker games. It's an understatement to say the city is in a shitty spot until Hartnett's "Drifter" character shows up demanding to find Nicola. Hartnett is given a few amazing fight scenes early on to establish the degree of his badassness and make sure we know he's no one to mess with. Meanwhile, "Yoshi" a samurai-esque badass played by Japanese pop star Gackt strolls into town. The bulk of the second act is spent establishing the Drifter and Yoshi's quests to locate Nicola and their eventual teaming up. Together the two form an incredible team called "The Gangbusters" as coined by their newly found bartender mentor played by Woody Harrelson. The two cut their way through the legions of punks, thugs, and mercenaries until they find themselves face to face with Nicola where we discover the true reasons why they fought so hard to get to him. This film is by far the best film I've seen this year. I know I have different taste than most anyone else at Ain't It Cool, but this movie kicked my ass. The style is something all of it's own. Films like WATCHMEN, 300, MOULIN ROUGE, THE MATRIX, and SIN CITY came to mind throughout the film, though nothing felt lifted off any of them. Guy Moshe is someone to watch out for. I can't wait to see whatever the hell he's got up his sleeve for his next flick. I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around the film. It's got a deep, thick, colorful world filled with interesting and crazy characters. This movie flat out blew me away. Trying to not spoil anything here, but Hartnett beats the hell out of a Cirque De Sole guy on a safety net, there's a car chase or two, hundreds of gallons of blood (real and digital) splat everywhere, and the story's damn fun. The idea of fighting levels of baddies in this film is in no way new, (THE GAME OF DEATH, KILL BILL, etc...) but it feels incredibly fresh. This movie's got it all, Woody Harrelson, Ron Perlman, hot chicks, explosions, insane fight scenes, and... The list could go on forever. If it's not incredibly obvious, I fucking loved this movie. After the film screened, the three men took back the stage for a little Q and A. While a large chunk of them were from ladies to Hartnett, go figure, there weren't really than many questions asked to Guy Moshe. Personally, my mind was so blown, I was still trying to piece together the awesomeness that just happened. I'd give my left arm for a look inside Guy's head. His visual style with this film was just absolutely incredible and like nothing I've seen before. So for walking into a movie that was not even remotely on my radar, I absolutely walked out of the theater with my jaw dragging on the floor. Go see this movie. -Muldoon

    About Bunraku...

    by nico_laos

    This film was actually made years ago... but the studio has been unsure what to do with it. Also, the budget for post-production has experienced some issues. And Moshe had to actually buy back the script from the studio, after realizing that they were probably never going to shoot it. All this led to many to assume the film was just unwatchable. I'm glad to see some positive stuff about it. And about those giggling teenage girls, Hartnett may have had something to do with that, but you'd be surprised at the amount of fangirls Gackt has in the US. Especially amongst the type of girls that go to film festivals.

    Boardwalk Empire was again very good last night.

    by ColonelFatheart

    There were some genuinely surprising moments, and lots of boobage. This show promises to bring the boobage weekly.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:25 p.m. CST

    OMG Colonel

    by rogueleader66

    Red Bull and Bukakke are both vomit inducing.....gross.<P>Still nothing will spoil my appetite, as Mrs Rogue is making her Beef Stew tonight....cannot wait. Pretzel Chicken saturday, macaroni and beef last night, ans stew tonight.<P>I may not have much money, or stuff, or much of anything for that matter, but thank god I gots me a good woman who can cook in the kitchen as well as the bedroom ;) and who is equally excellent in both places!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Is RED HILL the prequel to RED CLIFF?

    by ColonelFatheart

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:26 p.m. CST

    Oh man, we had some homemade beef stew last night.

    by ColonelFatheart

    I'm proud to say I helped a little by slicing the onions!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:26 p.m. CST

    Oh my point was actually.....

    by rogueleader66

    That I may not have much but damn I sure as hell eat good! Between the two of us, we are always eating good.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:28 p.m. CST

    I should add that I helped more than that, too.

    by ColonelFatheart

    I bought the damned food.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:29 p.m. CST

    Last night i took some plain old buttermilk biscuit mix

    by rogueleader66

    And made it into something very similar to the biscuits you get at Red Lobster...yum!<P>Whoooo hoooooo!!!! Colonel sliced some onions! Way to go!!!<P>Colonel should I assume you are not much of a culinary dabbler?

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:32 p.m. CST

    I can cook enough.

    by ColonelFatheart

    I can get by, and I'd be able to do it every night if I needed to. I'm just not too creative. <p>I can make a mean, well-seasoned burger, though, and it appears I have very minimal grilling skills.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:39 p.m. CST

    Colonel

    by rogueleader66

    You must remedy that. All men are required to know how to grill. Look it up, it's somewhere on your birth certificate. You can barely be a regular cook, and that's acceptable. But you must know how to grill. It takes a little time, but you can do it. Not that tough, because you are a man, grilling is in your blood.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:40 p.m. CST

    I wasn't all that creative either.

    by rogueleader66

    But you watch enough cooking shows, or get tips from those who know, and you become creative. That's what happened to me, just became more daring as time went on. Of course if you dont care to cook, it's a different story, but it can be a lot of fun.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:42 p.m. CST

    Well, the work day is at an end, finally.

    by rogueleader66

    So I am off to home to my DF and some awesome stew. Will talk at you fellers later<P>Peace out, keep that chicken greased up!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:42 p.m. CST

    Rogue, sorry I was unclear.

    by ColonelFatheart

    What I meant to say is that I was surprised to learn I had minimal grilling skills. I was forced into BBQing by default at a party in August, and I took to it naturally, like it's in my genes and shit.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 3:43 p.m. CST

    Peace and chicken grease!

    by ColonelFatheart

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5 p.m. CST

    He's a shitty comedian! Although he is no Carlos Mencia.

    by ColonelFatheart

    That guy's the woist.

    He's gotta talk show

    I like George Lopez's sitcom

    by rogueleader66

    Never seen him do stand up though.<P>Colonel....see I knew it, bbq'ing is a male inherited trait, even if you cant boil water right, you can grill. You are a man, you grill. Period. The more you do it, the better you will get at it. <P>Keep it up!! Make us proud!<P>Just waiting on the home made biscuits to get done and it is beef stew time baby!!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:53 p.m. CST

    Hey, Col, what do you think of DARK TOWER so far?...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...say you mention it in GRITback.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST

    Just read The Gunslinger so far.

    by ColonelFatheart

    I liked it, but I can't help but feel that there's something so much bigger beyond this point, and I'm sure there is. It was an enjoyable, quick read until Roland finally met the Man in Black. Then it became GREAT.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:56 p.m. CST

    I'm waiting on Drawing of the Three.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Fucker better mail it soon. Till then, I'm reading Del Toro's The Strain.

    Ah, gotta go.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Keep fuckin' that chicken, foax.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:59 p.m. CST

    DRAWING OF THREE is one of my favorites...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...it's interesting to see him as such a young, raw writer in the first one. I missed some of that in the later books.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 5:59 p.m. CST

    Dammit! Just missed him!

    by TedKordLives

    Later Col.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6 p.m. CST

    ...fuckoff, Col!

    by FlickaPoo

    Heya gang.

    by TedKordLives

    Wanted to see what Colon-El's DG thought of The Strain. Well, if he's gonna read it then I guess she's digging it.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:02 p.m. CST

    Evening, Ted.

    by FlickaPoo

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:05 p.m. CST

    Reading King's Under the Dome right now.

    by TedKordLives

    First King I've read since the last Dark Tower book kicked me in the face, spit on me and called my mother bad names. <P> But Under the Dome is vintage King, albeit updated to modern times. Some of the younger character's voices are a bit off, but the dude's old, so I'll give him a break on that.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:08 p.m. CST

    Did I miss anything?

    by TedKordLives

    The computer had my internet in a sleeper hold all day, and I was too embarassed to call IT about it.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:12 p.m. CST

    Oh it is ON.

    by TedKordLives

    Pikachu Girl confirms: Final fitting next monday! Fina-fucking-lly!

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:19 p.m. CST

    I gave up on UNDER THE DOME...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...I rarely do that, but it didn't grab me...didn't feel like there was enough there.<P> I think I'm one of the few people who didn't mind the end of DARK TOWER. Not the strongest moment of the series, but the series is all over the place in quality anyway. Overall I thought the journey was well worth taking...especially if you have a badly sprained ankle.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:22 p.m. CST

    ...when she finally gets the crotch fit just right...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...she's going to be overcome with Beetlemania. Better make sure you're in a relatively private place and have at least 45 minutes at your disposal.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:26 p.m. CST

    ...hope she doesn't tear the new suit apart in her...

    I don't see how she'll be able to resist, except at the thought of having to actually redo the whole costume.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:35 p.m. CST

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 6:36 p.m. CST

    I hear you on Under the Dome, tho.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 7:34 p.m. CST

    sorry Ted, spaced for a few.

    by Hi5Effect

    No one questions the Beetle's sexuality, is it still gay if you're on top? Is it still gay if you're an insect? Hardly HOMOsexuality, Entosexuality, maybe...

    Saw the new RESIDENT EVIL yesterday.

    by TedKordLives

    Buddy bought my ticket as a late birthday present. Visually, the movie's great. Good 3-D and FX. But there are a few long, boooorrrring stretches that really take the fun out of it. Likewise, Milla & Ali are fun to look at, but neither is even adequate in the acting deptartment. The guy playing Wesker had exactly two facial expressions, and one was just the other with one side of his mouth turned up. There are some pretty ridiculous plot holes and lots of stuff is left to the imagination. <P> There's so much slo-mo at the climax I wanted to run screaming from the theater. Overall, I'll be generous and give it a 2.5/5.

  • Sept. 27, 2010, 8:09 p.m. CST

    Just kidding, guys.

    by TedKordLives

    About forgetting my name. I hope you all know that already, but I feel like I should clarify, just to be certain. <P> I haven't forgotten the face of my father, either.

You could tell the actors and director just didn't how to do it.<p>There is ONE good fight scene in the entire thing, and that's towards the end before the final boss. <p>SPOILER: the best fight scene is with a black guy on a trampoline.<p>But honestly, the movie is fucking boring. It's supposed to be a comedy and I only heard someone chuckle ONCE. There's a reason why the studio doesn't know what to do with it - it's S H I T E

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:38 p.m. CST

    Bay understands lighting. That's all.

    by ColonelFatheart

    His movies are all over the place. if he knew how to frame a shot properly, his movies wouldn't be so confusing to watch. He has no sense of spatial relationships, and it doesn't hurt that his movies appear to be edited by a chimp with cerebral palsy.

    Still completely disagree

    by D.Vader

    He does know lighting, I give you that. But he composes many of his shots like he's taking a still or making a painting. Your confusion comes not from his framing, but from his editing.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:48 p.m. CST

    His direction essentially consists of sticking two people

    by ColonelFatheart

    in a location and then swirling the camera around, even when people are just talking. His editing sure is shitty, yes, but that carelessness goes back to when he's planning his shots. If he's a storyboarder, he's awful. If he shoots on the fly, then he has no feel for rhythm. Part of that is framing and blocking. He doesn't have to keep the camera still, but can he demonstrate at least an awareness of where the action will be moving? It's chaotic for all the wrong reasons.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:51 p.m. CST

    are two different animals, unless said director is trying to evoke stationary moments through framing, mise en scene, etc.

    by D.Vader

    But I'm more interested in the GREAT MOVIES WE SHOULD ALL BE WATCHING THIS MONTH topic than the merits and weaknesses of Bay at the moment.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:53 p.m. CST

    Bay is an insecure visualist, at least when it comes to film.

    by ColonelFatheart

    If he'd be patient and have a little confidence in what he's obviously taking the time to light in an interesting way, then maybe he'd string together shots that not only make sense in sequence but in and of themselves.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 12:55 p.m. CST

    Why the hell did Choppah and RPLocke get banned?

    by D.Vader

    What did they do while I was gone? Those two are fucking HARMLESS compared to other *real* trolls. Give me a break, AICN. Jeez. <p> Unless they went off the deep end while I was at the store and started calling everyone n-word this, f-word that. But I don't see those two doing that at all.

    Oh, Beaks is gonna ban pple for being off-topic?

    by D.Vader

    In the Menkeback? Cheeses H Rice, take a fucking chill pill, Beaks. Off-topic posts are completely harmless.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Yeah, I can understand somewhat.

    by ColonelFatheart

    But that's a little much. Do they see what offensive posts go up day in and day out???

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:35 p.m. CST

    I hope Beaks doesn't ban me

    by D.Vader

    That would be really and truly unfair and just fucking mean. But then again, you really never know with the guy. This place has banned people for far far worse. It never makes much sense.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:44 p.m. CST

    That's fucking bullshit if he does.

    by ColonelFatheart

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:44 p.m. CST

    It just doesn't make any sense to me Colonel

    by D.Vader

    Harry allows people to say whatever the hell they like in a Roman Polanski talkback, but when Sally Menke dies, Beaks decides anyone who posts off-topic, even to say "Right on Beaks! Ban those jerks!" or to say "That's a bit harsh Beaks!", gets banned? WTF? There's such a level of disconnect there. I mean, he actually says "Please do not respond to this post, either to support or complain. Thank you." Doesn't that just seem weird to the rest of you?

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:46 p.m. CST

    Hey Vades: You up at the new Shelter yet?

    by ColonelFatheart

    Go to the original one for the link, man. <p>As for Beaks' post, it DOES sound weird to me, and damn it if it isn't off-topic itself.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 3:56 p.m. CST

    Yeah, I think it's utter bullshit.

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    I know that Beaks is likely upset and in no mood for frivolity, but once people start getting banned merely because an angry school marmish moderator is having a shitty day, AICN is sunk.<BR><BR>Bad show, Beaks.

    I come to mourn a great Pedalbacker: D Vader

    by ColonelFatheart

    D Vader was one of the most valuable Talkbackers on this site. He had been here a long time, and he always had something SMART and THOUGHTFUL to contribute to a conversation. Even when he disagreed with you, he did so respectfully, therefore commanding the same respect from you. <p> This place is overrun with trolls and spammers, but D Vader gets the boot for merely questioning Beaks' arbitrary banning policy? Pardon my French, but what a load of shit. Vader deserved better than that. <p> Goodbye for now, Vader. You are a wise Talkbacker, a helluva Pedalbacker, and a loyal friend. I hope you will be back soon. <p> Beaks, if you have any appreciation for fairness, you will reinstate D Vader. I call on all of you who laughed or argued with Vades over the years to join me in imploring Beaks to undo his grave error. It is time to fix this, sir.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 5:48 p.m. CST

    SDB, you said it. Beaks has gone ga ga with his stance in the MenkeBack. He must have known her personally or something... I dont really care..<p> What I do care about is DVader getting banned because i CANNOT BELIEVE he would've written anything insulting in an obit.<p> I'd like to see the post that got him banned because im betting it was a TOTAL OVER REACTION by Beaks the bastard.<p> Did anyone see what DVader posted before it got erased.<p> FUCK man. All those posts gone forever.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 6:09 p.m. CST

    Cobes, all Vades said that it was unfair how

    by ColonelFatheart

    Beaks could just ban people arbitrarily for going off topic. He pointed out the hypocrisy of banning relatively harmless "trolls" like The Choppah and RPLocke when there are people who troll a lot harder day in and day out. He apologized for going off topic and mentioned his sadness at Menke's death, too. He said NOTHING offensive; he just violated the "rules" that Beaks established on the spot.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 6:18 p.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    Col, yep that sounds like DVader.<p> He has a strong sense of justice (and injustice). But if you cant question without getting banned then... all that's left to say really is...<p> BEAKS YOU MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In every talkback that bears his name. We'll belittle him. We'll irritate him. We'll destroy any tiny shred of credibility he has left.<p> Project Beaks Apocalypse begins when you return.<p> BEAKS YOU MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mac: Beaks banned Vader.

    by ColonelFatheart

    There's a thread up for Sally Menke's (Tarantino's editor) obit, and Beaks through up some warning that ANY post off-topic would result in a banning. Well, stupid ass Choppah and RPLocke got themselves banned, so Vader questioned Beaks for his arbitrary banning policy, especially when there are all kinds of asshole trolls who get away with a lot worse shit. Needless to say, Vader went "off topic" and got banned.

  • Sept. 28, 2010, 6:48 p.m. CST

    by Fuzzyjefe

    no, will take to long. I sum up. And then I go to bed. <p> In the Sally Manke obit tb, Beaks posted that any nasty or OFF-TOPIC posters would get immediate banning. D.Vader posted very respectfully, asking if that was just a bit heavy handed. Beaks bans D.Vader. <p> Now, all major talkbacks are rallying for the return of our comrade. THE_CHOPPAH has also been banned, but he has returned (I think) under 2, maybe 3 different aliases. RPLocke....banned. A few others. It's been a banhammer day, and Beaks has appointed himself Thor.

    by ScaryWaitress

    If we start hijacking all his threads, he's just going to ban us all. I think the most effective thing would be for EVERYONE who is pissed about this to boycott AICN for a week. That's the only way Harry himself might take notice and get involved.

    by ColonelFatheart

    I wonder if Harry notices anything anymore, really. <p>I think you might be on to something about a full-on AICN boycott though. I'm just not sure how effective it can be beyond the Pedalback. So maybe if we deprive them of PB hits for a week, that could work. Thoughts? Suggestions? <p>Until we decide whether to do that, though, I'm all for peaceful agitation and reminding everyone of how D.Vader was fucked over. I'm going to avoid Beaks TBs, though.

    by Le Vicious Fishus

    If we all get banned, who gets hurt? We have the shelter.

    by ColonelFatheart

    Perhaps we should pair the boycott with an email to Harry explaining what we're doing and why, mentioning the value the Pedalback adds to his site. And we should also announce it publicly in other threads to encourage others to take similar action.

  • Sept. 29, 2010, 7:53 a.m. CST

    Take the action to them on the forums, continue to agitate, write Harry an email, etc.

    Yeah, Scary's suggestion is a great one

    by ColonelFatheart

    Let's try to get all of them out today. Let's be as respectful and polite as possible, but make it clear how angry we are, and make sure to point why banning Vader was so egregious. <p>Then, if there is no response from Harry for two days, if we don't see Vader back or Harry hasn't written back, then we go ahead and announce our weeklong Pedalback boycott in as many threads as possible while encouraging others to take similar action.

    by rogueleader66

    I have sent harry emails before with zero recognition, not that I expect one. But if we all send him an email (I think it is worth a try) and he does not respond to any of us at all, then we know he does not give a shit. But if he was telling Ted the truth and he appreciates the traffic we produce, then he should, at the very least, look into this. Beaks is a big pussy who got on some kind of power trip and went banhammer crazy, for no good reason at all. Ban the real trolls, not Vades, he is a great contributor to the TB's, and to our group. Total bullshit.

    flicka, cheers. Im with you on the whole regeneration thing. If or when i get banned i dont think i'd return. Not so much losing the name, its losing all my old posts that would bother me. I know that may sound meaningless cos old threads are like last weeks newspapers... But its kinda nice knowing all the nonsense ive spouted on here over the years is preserved...<p> its a harsh fate that its not just the 'offending' post that gets erased, its EVERY post you ever contributed.

    Memories of D.Vader...part 1

    by STLost

    Colonel Fatheart<P> by D.Vader Jul 15th, 2010 07:08:32 AM<P> John Williams only composed the scores for Harry Potter 1, 2, and 3. 4 was by Patrick Doyle and includes some wonderful pieces (the best being "Harry in Winter"- I highly advise you check it out). <P> Harry Potter 2 was actually, I think, kind of composed and conducted by someone else. I think Williams was extremely busy that year and wrote some new themes for Fawkes the Phoenix and Professor Lockheart, but I feel like it was someone else who put it all together.

    Posts that got D.Vader banned:

    by ColonelFatheart

    (Provided by Vader himself, BTW): <p>1. Was CHOPPAH and RPLocke banned for something in this Talkback?<br>Did they say something in here that caused them to be banned? What happened? <p>2. Just saw Beaks' comment. Off-topic posts get banned?<br>That seems a bit fascist, doesn't it? Offensive and mean-spirited posts I can understand getting *deleted*, but to outright BAN someone for posting something other than "RIP, she will be missed"? That just seems really unfair. Really, let's ease up on the BANHAMMER and let people be off-topic. That's what makes the AICN talkbacks GREAT, the fact that we can start on one cinematic topic and it leads us to another different but wonderful conversation on something else. Relax. <br>But just to be on topic and cover my bases, it really is a shame we lost a great editor so early in her life. Yeah, the 50's are early. <p>3. I hope that doesn't get me banned<br>Honestly, I don't read every comment before I make my own. Didn't see Beaks' comment until after I first posted. <br>And seriously, she did such a great job editing all of Tarantino's time-shifting narratives. She will be missed in all of his future endeavors.

The posts that resulted in the banning and more to the point, Beaks SHITTY response, have driven me to change my mind. I am on board a full boycott of AICN, pending a response from Harry. Give him 2 days.<p>I think Beaks' response should be wallpapered from top to bottom on this site so EVERYONE know whate he really thinks of this readership. <p>Beaks got one thing right though, his obit along with pretty much all his other contributions are inadequate. That includes his appreciation for the people who BOTHER to cast a single blink at one of his fucking articles.<p>Yeah....I'll email Harry. For everyone's sake I'll stick with the form letter. I don't trust myself at this point.<p>Die from anally contracted AIDS, Beaks, or the dick sword from Se7en. Was that enough of a movie fan reference for you?

    Buscemi does a teriffic gangster with a gleam of humanity. There are intriguing subplots and stunningly good visuals strung throughout the proceedings.

Met a girl who was slipping pictures of naked old men into copies of Twilight in the Wal-Mart book aisle.

    Not near as bad as I was thinking it would be based on the trailers. It had some pretty outstanding visuals, and good WWII with owls story. The Owl City montage was highly distracting though. I've rarely seen a more blatant case of studio manipulation. <p> Side note, they opened the movie with a lousy CG Wile E. Coyote/Roadrunner cartoon in 3D in which it seemed like the people who made it had never really seen an old Looney Tune before. It stuck to one gadget and had a drastic reduction in the level of mayhem that Wile undergoes. I love the idea of more cartoons before the feature, but that was a waste.

    Ninety (90) days, it is, gentlemen!!!

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    I'm gonna repost this in a few other talkbacks. Please be kind enough to help me out. In honor of D.Vader and in response to Harry Knowles's email in which Harry threatened to permanently ban D. Vader if **WE** became annoying in our protests ("Chris will have a 90 day ban, unless he and his friends get annoying, in which case his ban will become perm.") Ain't it cool, guys? Threatening to ban someone for a protest initiated by OTHERS? And remember - this is from the fat liberal protest-worshiping toad himself! Guess "peace" and "love" and "power to the people" ain't exactly all that when it's directed at the capricious whims of you, your contributors and your site. For purposes of solidarity and protest, I'm taking Ain't It Cool out of my drop down menu, set my Outlook Reminder, and am avoiding this site for ninety (90) days - I'll return 12/28/10. If Vader's back, cool. If not, well, like others have said, there are plenty of OTHER sites to get this shit from. The one redeeming grace of this site has been the talkbacks and the people (smart, stupid, crazy, fun, insane, wild, angry people) in the talkbacks. But it looks like Harry et al. have decided to behave in a dictatorial and willfully impulsive manner, alienating many talkbackers. I'm done. See you in ninety!

    Valhalla is a wittier place with you both there, may its rivers run with the blood of the chopped, may its bravest warriors bow before your glory hole, and may its tall, strong, tow-headed females hang from your very nuts by their delicate Nordic lips.

    We're not taking new recruits. We're just rescuing PBers.

    ...but I do quite like the idea of being Sgt. Elias left on the ground. But in this alternate version he's gunning down all the gooks and Adagio For Strings is replaced by the Benny Hill music.

    ps. sorry if gooks is offensive.<p> But this is 'nam and that's what Elias would have said.

    pps. couldn't you even leave Waitress here to keep me company? <p>It would be purely plutonic. I promise (hides crossed fingers behind back).<p>

    i respect these pebrews desicions

    by MacReady452

    But it twists my sack to leave behind a brother like cobes. I know flick is indifferent and we haven't heard from cheeses yet. We said 2 days. Maybe we hang in there another day or take it til friday and see what happens. We waged a decent campaign for ONE DAY. <p>honestly, im torn. Is Vades down with dissolving the PB? Did we even ask? I get it. I do, but this is drastic. I really dug the mayhem, and rukus we were stirring up. <p>SCREAM, AIM, and FIRE!<p> That's what i say.

  • Sept. 29, 2010, 6:36 p.m. CST

    Nobody's dissolving anything.

    by anonymoose

    We're continuing the tradition elsewhere is all. After the bullshit that has happened, do we we really want to continue putting money in AICN's pockets?

    Mac, Cobes

    by ColonelFatheart

    Vader's posting over at the Shelter. As long as he's not allowed here, sixies, a good deal of the others and I have decided not to post here until the 90 days is up. And, shit, never know, the new place might just be THE place.

    I'm not d.vader

    by dvaderclone1

    But I liked him, and I think it's wrong that he of all people got banned by someone with power who was obviously in a poor mood. That guy's been on here as long as me, which is as long as this site's been around. So how about it: band with me and all the other supporters of our friend on this forum and, in d.vader's way, politely speak up. Make your own d.vaderclone2, 3 etc. handle, copy and paste this message, and protest his banning in a civil manner. Let him back in now!

    I understand your feelings, Mac...

    by Cheeses_of_Nazareth

    I am torn...I want to burn this place to the ground along with every other disgruntled TBer right now...I would like nothing better than for the Pedalback to pull a Butch and Sundance on this bitch...<p>But, there is another solution that i think will hurt this site more than that...<p>Check the site and let me know what you think...

    Could the last person here...

    Bunraku

    by Greydawn

    I'm pretty sure most of the girls watching BUNRAKU weren't there for Harnett or McKidd, but instead for GACKT. He has quite the fanbase around the world and anyone even somewhat connected to Asian music will have heard of him. His DEARS (the name for GACKT fans) are very supportive and I've come across other reviews mentioning the mindblowing amount of fans waiting for him.
