Yeah... because in 1958 people often had sex with dead people and rented videos, and had arguments about Star Wars.

I just watched Raising Arizona for the first time. It was a fine movie. I think it might be my favorite Coen Brothers movie. Anyone see The Ladykillers? Was that flick any good?

There's really nothing to say after you watch Do The Right Thing.

Today i watched Garden State and Kicking anc Screaming. Garden State was actually prety good. From the cover of the DVD i thought it looked stupid. Kicking and Screaming was alright it wasn't as funny as i remebered though.

garden state and eternal sunshine of the spotless mind are amazing movies... if you're in the right mood for it. the kinda spaced out high mood is probably the best.

Yeah they did! Actually I thought you'd mis-typed the year, although I couldn't see how (unless you were pissed). Jokes are usually funny (hence why mine aren't classified as "jokes") and yours wasn't. Anyway, stop making such a big deal out of nothing. CHIIILLLL OOOOUUUTTT.

Kelsey's right. A Love Song for Bobby Long was a good film. Had some of the best lines I've heard in a while.
"Yeah, they're real torn up about it. Ranks right up there with being out of vodka and cigarettes."
"Cook me some dinner and I'll go rent us a porno."
Ranman...did you write this?
If you want to discuss bad accents (i.e.: Keira's in The Jacket) though, I submit John Travolta's as exhibit A. He sounded like Tony Manero trying to order barbeque at Dreamland.

The Barkley's Of Broadway (1949) Another great Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers vehicle. I rank it as one of the better films they made together.

Brannigan (1975) It was decent primarily because it features John Wayne as a tough American cop tracking down a notorious criminal in the streets of London. And I can safely say movie audiences just weren't accustom to seeing 'the Duke' in material quite like this, and I guess that's why it works, somewhat. Although it wasn't a very good movie (weak story) it managed to keep my attention. This was Wayne's second to last film.

Happy Birthday To Me (1981) After the success of John Carpenter's low-budget independent slasher Halloween in 1978, there was a large number of young inspiring filmmakers ready to cash in on the success. In the next few years, Canada produced several modestly publicized low-budget features including Prom Night, Terror Train, and My Bloody Valentine. However, Happy Birthday To Me had the benefit of a larger budget and a veteran director named J. Lee Thompson (Cape Fear, The Guns of Navarone). But even that wasn't enough for me.

The death scenes in the film are too bizarre and corny which apparently have been mistaken to be unique, original, classic, or whatever fancy word fans of the film often use. It appears to be a psychological film as well, at least elements of it, in where we witness a seemingly normal girl that in fact has a dark secret from her past. The movie has you guessing weather or not it is actually her doing the killing. By the end of the picture I just wasn't satisfied. It's a little difficult to put my finger on what exactly I didn't like about the movie, but it has something to do with the story, how it was laid out and executed. And the ending was DUMB. BUNK. BULLSHIT.

I acknowledge its 'classic' status. The film has a certain sophisication to it, and, more or less, style. But no matter what I say about the movie I'm sure it will remain one of the better horror films of the early eighties. To be honest, the highlight of the entire movie was the song that played during the end credits. An eerie tune conveniently titled "Happy Birthday to Me" performed by someone named Syreeta.

42nd Street (1933) A very good musical with memorable musical numbers.

Bubba Ho-Tep (2003) Likeable. It has its moments of humor, but yes, weird is the right word. Oddly, a lot of toilet humor. I almost didn't like it, but I gave in. I forgot Don Coscarelli directed this movie; he made Phantasm, you know. I had no chance but to like it.

Strangers with Candy....
The TV series was my all-time favorite show (got all three seasons on DVD), but the movie was somewhat of a disappointment. It was like an unpolished episode from Season One of the show, stretched out to 90 minutes. It had its moments, but was overall just a slightly above-average comedy.

I give it 2 stars.

I watched Mean Streets. The first movie Scorsese ever did, and it was brilliant. Harvey Keitel looks like he can beat you up in Pulp Fiction, but he looks like he could make you choke on your own vomit in this movie. Last year in school i wrote a paper on how much cooler Martin Scorsese is than Ron Howard. I was supposed to be writing about the movie Into The West but that movie sucked.

Damn shame about Strangers With Candy. Jake better leave his review for a Scanner Darkly, and if that's not good i will choke a puppy.

Mean Streets is brilliant. Great movie. Good taste!

I watched a few movies these past days.

Terror Train (1980): If I ever were to create a list of the worst horror movies I've ever seen; this would be number one.

The Producers (2005): The movie got better as it went on, but it cannot be compared to the original, which is far more superior.

Prime (2005): Apparently some people believe what makes this film work is the dialogue, but if you want to hear the kind of dialogue that a child can say, this is probably the film for you. Not only do I find this movie difficult to watch, but it is also embarrassing. The relationship between Rafi and David is so dull and unlively that you wonder weather or not what they have is worth the screentime. Watching this picture it seems like all these two characters do is kiss, hold hands, and have sex. Is the dialogue in this movie supposed to be realistic? Well then, I must not get out often. Uma deserves so much better than this.

I really didn't like that movie. Not the worst in the series, but bad. It was around that time that the concept of Batman movies being a spoof really came to prominence. Once Burton stopped directing them they ceased to keep any of the true feel.

Begins is probably the best. Most true to the comics, dark and brooding and not so silly.

Sideways...good film. Not exactly what I expected (at least the naked guy running down the middle of the street) but I liked it. Well, I didn't like seeing the tow truck driver's willy, or him having sex with his chubby wife for that matter. :icon_err: I really enjoy watching Paul Giamatti act.

Just got back from Clerks II. If you're a fan of Kevin Smith you'll dig this movie. The only problem i had with it was that there were far more emotions in this one. For most of the movie i was going back and forth on whether i liked it or not, because i just wanted to see some old school Clerks. But then when i started not to like it, because of all the emotions, something awesomely ridiculous happened. It was a bitchin' film.

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (2005): I couldn't find anything really impressive in this version, except for maybe Burton's trademark vision. Depp's performance was just weird and I didn't care for it. And I will shudder at the thought if anyone says that they prefer Johnny Depp as Willa Wonka over Gene Wilder.

The Ladykillers (2004): I saw the original in what seems like ages ago, and I remember expressing good fondness for it. This version, however, I'm accepting too. I think it was because the feeling of relief when the film ended. And I don't mean that in a negative way. Behind all that profanity/vulgarity (and there were a lot from that Wayne's boy), I was thinking this movie was going to be a waste. But as the movie went on, I was satisfied.

Fun With Dick And Jane (2005): I didn't like it. It was full of clich├ęs and the same tired routine we usually get from Jim Carrey. And Carrey can be really funny providing he has good material to work with. This was just weak, and I hope the original is better.

The Glenn Miller Story (1955): I didn't even know who Glenn Miller was until I saw this movie. Great film, by the way, and truely tragic. For those who may not be too familiar, Miller was a casualty of WWII when the small plane he boarded, apparently, "went down" or was shot down over the Coast of France. According to many sources, the occupants and the plane were NEVER found. There was this whole "under mysterious circumstances" surrounding the event.

Hellboy (2004): Fun to watch. That is really all I can say about it. Funny thing is, it looked like a comic book. And that is probably why the film worked for me.

Leon: The Professional (1994): "But always at the back of my mind was the troubled thought that there was something wrong about placing a 12-year-old character in the middle of this action." -- Roger Ebert.

And that was really what I was thinking throughout the entire movie, well, almost. But I quickly dismissed that thought. I was so thoroughly enamored by everything in this movie that by the end of the picture I was left thinking that this was one of the best films ever made. Well, I loved it. It was very well-done and the performances by Natalie Portman and Jean Reno were brilliant. The last movie I saw Jean Reno was in Godzilla and I didn't think anything of him at the time. He is so badass in this movie. This film is a MUST see.
