another word on this from slurm guy and bobby and i'll ban them too. It's called the "alert" button. It's also known as "email one of the mods." You both ought to know better.

ps-I don't really feel like deleting those posts. I think I will leave them up.

Bandits

Ii saw this yesterday. It's a nice, entertaining movie. Maybe a little too long, but I found it quite surprising and well constructed. The performances were very good (especially Cate Blancett and Billy Bob Thornton). Recommended at least for a rental.

Horns and Halos

I watched this documentary yesterday on TV and I found it excellent. It's about the release of the book "Fortunate Son", a book telling all the secrets and lies about George W. Bush. The only problem of the documentary is that it ends up focusing on the author of the book, insted of focusing in the book. But it's very interesting, and there are some peculiar characters along the way (the editor of the book lives in a tiny apartment in New York and is the janitor of the building he lives in).

Better and funnier than I expected. It was much better than Brignin' Down The House. Steve Martin sure can do some crazy stuff for a man his age. That's about all I can say about that.

I watched "I Capture the Castle" last night. It's def. a chick movie (it had a vibe similar to "Little Women" except with less dead sisters) but it wasn't bad. It's about a family that is poor because the father hasn't worked in 12 years. Some men come to collect the overdue rent and the daughters try to marry them as a way to save their family. The trite ending was annoying. There's some nudity and a lot of british people and a castle though.

Zombie
1979
Directed by Lucio Fulci


A gritty gore-fest, and could be mistaken for an italian rip-off of Dawn of the Dead (though the latter does have somewhat of a storyline as opposed to Zombie).

Halirous dubbing and the eye-gouging scene will be a stain in your mind forever. The somewhat of a plot is that its set in New York and an abandoned ship arriving with a flesh-eating zombie as cargo - a skin eating feast follows.

Though this film is not all bad, it does have its highs, such as an underwater scene with a zombie vs. a shark. The widescreen version is great, and it certainly looks better than the vhs version released around that time.  no no

Big Fish

Once again, Tim Burton is a genius. After watching it, it is currently my favorite movie. It really combines all the elements that makes a good movie, contrary to what the critics say. Extremely funny at times, extremely sad in others, yet all the way you are sucked in. The acting was incredible, Steve Buscemi was hilarious. Overall, I give it an A++ and suggest you go see it.

Cheaper By The Dozen

I HATE this movie. Is it a problem that the outtakes are funnier than the WHOLE 98 agonizing minutes of the film? Everyone was a B*TCH in this film. Everyone hated, well...everyone. I hate this film!

Scarface
1983
Directed by Brian De Palma


My god! What a movie! Not enough time to write a thorough review of this gangster flick, but Al Pacino puts on such a strong performance in this film. He even adopted an Cuban accent 6 months before shooting.

Scarface is proberly one of the most quoted films ever from the 80s. Also with the 'say hello to my lil' friend' shooting scene, that is film-history right there.

Scarface was good, but not as good as I expected it to be.
I also saw a cameo of Richard (?) Belzer as a stan-up comedian. Has he done this before? It's because he was also in this Bill Hicks video I saw.

I agree with Zeej on this one. I found Scarface to be good, but not "great." In the genre of gangster films, there are much better choices.

As posted by evan, I too thought Scarface was good - but not great. I tend to lean towards more of praising a film than to make a bad comment of it. Though I mainly review films that I like more often than I hate (who wants to see their film that they've worked so hard on - to see its been bad mouthed on the internet), I thought Scarface was good from what I've seen in the gangster-genre films (which is hardly any).

And with ZombieJesus's query on Richard Belzar, maybe you'll find your answer here.

I thought that Big Fish totally kicked ass. Ewan McGregor is one hell of an actor and Tim Burton is a genius. To me, it was kinda like a cracked out Forrest Gump. This movie is, hands down, the best movie I've seen all year!

i enjoyed Big Fish. Except for the ending. The imaginary ending i mean, not the real ending. People in the theater were crying but i was laughing my ass off at how outlandish it was. But for the most part it was cute, however i do wish the son had been able to get some truths from his dad. He deserved them but the dad never delivered.

Zombie is a sort of unofficial sequel to Dawn of the Dead.  In Italy, Dawn (which had been re-edited by Dario Argento) was called Zombi, and this movie was Zombi 2.  Apparently they shot some footage specially to link the two movies.

I recently saw Чеповек с Киноаппаратом (Man with a Movie Camera), a groundbreaking movie made in the Soviet Union in the late 1920s.  Very basically, it shows the events of one day in a city.  It just shows normal things, like people getting up, riding the bus, doing their jobs, exercising, swimming, and so forth.  That's it.  What makes it fascinating is the vast number of techniques used to show these activities: split screen, stills, variable speeds, etc.  The editing is amazing, and there's so much stuff in the movie that it's also amazing that they were able to edit it at all.  Interestingly, the titular man with the camera also appears on camera, so it feels as if the movie is folding back on itself -- at one point you see a close-up of the camera lens, and in the lens you can see the reflection of the other camera's lens.  Anyway, this is a must if you're interested in the history of movies, and even though it might not make you want to run out and get the DVD, it's worth seeing.

I've heard of that quite awhile ago, though I werent sure it was true until you brung it back up. Thanks.

Also, the sequel to 'Zombie' or 'Zombi 2' (also called 'Zombie Flesh Eaters' in Europe), Zombi 3 (also called 'Burial Ground) was not the greatest in my view - if you've never seen it, its best to leave it as that.   frown

it's a movie for guys though so it makes sense that even at the end they still haven't learned to communicate.

Can yis believe I just saw Donnie Darko a couple days ago?  It was the midnight movie at the good theater in town.  Anyway, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about because so many people, not least PEELers, were so vocal on the subject.  Well, don't worry, I liked it. More than I expected to, given that the theater was full of loud insane undergraduates and I'd never seen a good movie about insanity before.  The education business was great, too; pleasantly reminded me of one of my favourite films of all time, "If..."

Edited because "midnight" has an "n" in it.

Johnny English

The most obvious comedy I've seen since Meet the Parents.  Ie, our hero sees an imposter of important person has a tatoo on his bum, so I wonder if the real important person will be forced to moon a mass crowd of people by our hero?  Our hero has some highly powerful muscle relaxent, I wonder if he'll accidently take it himself?  There's a giant hole in the floor, I wonder if our hero will fall in it before he notices it?

Still, for all it's lack of surprise, I wouldn't say I didn't have a good time.  Having seen the movie, I never have to see it again, but I' not sorry I rented it (the fact that I used a free rental helps, too).

Wasn't there something a lot like that in the second Naked Gun movie?  The real guy has a birthmark, but Leslie Neilson thinks he's the impostor, so he pulls down the guy's pants to prove to the crowd that it is the impostor, then tries to remove the "fake" birthmark.

I hate that film, it looked worthwhile in the advert, but, well...

The Shawshank Redemption was a great film (Reached #2 on the Top 100 Films after Star-Wars). Bought the DVD for 5 in the sales! Deserves a full 10/10

Just watched Bowling For Columbine, i didn't know what to expect from it. A well done documentary, definately worth getting.

Kentucky Fried Movie

Has anyone else seen this? It should date from the early 1980's.  It's a satire/parody on many American commercials and movie genres, (among which Enter the Dragon with Bruce Lee.) with slapstick humour.

Guess who I spotted: Avery Brooks. That's right, captain Sisko, in his early twenties. It's in this sketch where he has to seduce his girlfriend. The couple is assisted by an educational step-by-step audio guide on LP.

I sensed a certain influence, the same influence as in movies like Airplane. Perhaps it was the same director.

I hope someone else can comment and elaborate.

Something else: I don't know why, but I bet Speli would love this movie.

I don't know if you're misquoting the title, or if it's different where you are but in North America it's called Kentucky Fried Movie.

And it was the same writers as Airplane! (Zucker/Abrahms/Zucker, or ZAZ).  They used to be a sketch comedy troupe (Kentucky Fried Theater), and John Landis did this movie of some sketches they wrote.  There's also a sequel (kinda-not-really), called Amazon Women on the Moon.

Saw Peter Pan with my parents and little brother. It's more like the stage play apparently (haven't seen it) than the singing dancing Mary Martin version. Most of the reviews I've seen lament the loss of the songs but I liked it much better without. Some of the camera work reminded me of Moulin Rouge but "Peter Pan" is not as over the top. The preteen romance was a bit weird compared to "modern" teen sexuality but I liked how this movie actually deals with emotions and motivations (and doesn't have a blonde Tiger Lilly) which is something I'm not used to seeing in other versions of the story.
