Bill Dawes on the Evil Dead remake.
Los Angeles Plays Itself - Fascinating documentary about how films tend to portray LA.
Nah no thanks
Really good movie, Shia LaBeouf was good so was Tom Hardy
Woah, now that last one was getting pretty wordy.
WALL OF TEXT
Didn't mean to sound condescending. Apologies if it came off that way.
Probably not a whole lot of people like this movie, but i liked it
Spider, a 2002 David Cronenberg film. Stars Ralph Fiennes and Miranda Richardson. Very good movie.
Interestingly, Howard Shore composed the score and Peter Suschitzky (of ESB fame) did the cinematography.
It's a slower film, though, but very worthwhile. I'd recommend checking it out if you can get a hold of it.
It was campy and ridiculously bloody. I loved every minute of it.
See it only if you want to see Hilary Duff stuff a scorpion down her pants.
Hell, yes I want to see that.
I've always been meaning to see that. I've only seen two Cronenberg movies. Easter Promises and A History of Violence.
You need to stop what you're doing and see "Naked Lunch." Seriously. Now. It's got Robocop and Bilbo Baggins in it.
Aaaah I've always meant to see that one too! I have too many movies to see! I haven't seen a new movie since March 30th!!
Rachel Getting Married
It was good.
Not THAT kind of scorpion.....
Oh, well. It was just a thought...
I don't know how to describe this mess. If Tom Cruise wants to make the ultimate intellectually gauche science fiction film,
why doesn't he just dress up like a lizard and produce Enemy Mine II?
Oblivion, After Earth, Pacific Rim, Elysium, Ender's Game
The sci fi genre really needs a couple of these movies to succeed.
Watching the Addams Family Movie. So great.
Oblivion- Pretty good. 70's bleak hard-ish scifi by way of 80's scifi spectacle and synth-ish score.
The drones were particularly brutal given the rating. Jaime Lannister seemed extraneous though- and the movie would have been better if we hadn't known Miogan Freeman was in it ahead of time (but that would have been impossible to market...).
Overall, a nice change of pace. The one larger twist is easy to anticipate but there's another significant twist that's still a surprise.
I often describe the senses evoked by Tron Legacy as noble and nostalgic. While Oblivion has a thread of nostalgia also (of honoring the loss of the past versus Legacy's restoring the past/fighting what that past has become), it's more about an odd mix of yearning and contentment.
However I can't be the only one who thought the director had probably hoped to bring Olivia Wilde over to this movie after Tron Legacy, given the female lead resemblance...
The D is silent, hillbilly.
'The Town That Dreaded Sundown', a low budget 70's drive in flick about a hooded serial killer who stalks his prey in Texarkana. It owes a great deal to the far superior 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' as it tries to emulate it's docudrama tone to not much success. It has some great moments because the killings are genuinely frightening but the plot has no coherence and the acting is bad even for a film like this.
Bit of a departure for Dawn Wells from Gilligan's Island to The Town that Dreaded Sundown, isn't it.
One of the best movies if you ask me. Definitely my favorite first contact with aliens movie.
