Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Nothing to be sorry about. Everybody has their likes and dislikes. It works for me. Maybe it's because I've never taken a film class?

It's a cliche with some truth in my case..."I don't know art, but I know what I like".

Of course I'm one of those freaks that liked the end to 2001, so I know I'm a little off.

I know FMB will put a hit out on me when I admit to this, but I've never seen Chinatown. I know I should, but I just never got around to it.

IMO, it's worth a rental though it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea.

Just watched something that really impressed me. It was a made for HBO film called "Conspiracy". The script was almost entirely translated from the minutes of the Wannsee Conference. Kenneth Branagh plays Heydrich and Stanley Tucci is Eichmann. The whole film basically takes place around the conference table, and it is one of the most chilling things I've ever seen.

Your wife got excited. She crossed her legs a little too quick. Do you understand what I mean, pal?

Most people never have to face the fact that, at the right time and the right place, they're capable of anything.

In 1979 I was walking through University Mall in Pensacola, Florida and a TV store had movie posters of "Chinatown" in the window.

This was at a time when only Sony Betamax VCR's were available, and they were expensive and were primary used to record from television since there was little or no theatrical films yet available.

I asked the man what's with the "Chinatown" poster, he said we've got the new RCA video-disc player for $499.00, you can play movies at home on your television. I said do you have "Chinatown"? He said yes, it's $24.99, I said I'll take one video player and one "Chinatown" video-disc.

It's neo-noir. . . the same vein as L.A. Confidential.

Chinatown is one of my favorites. Apologize, and do three Hail Marys and an Our Father for those who don't like it.

How could you hate "Chinatown"?

It's based on a real character and real happenings. William Mulray based in part on the real William Mullholland, who designed waterways, reservoirs (like the one just behind my home - Lake Hollywood) and is responsible for the largest engineering tragedy in US history (a dam in Santa Clara he designed immediately broke and killed 450 people). The California Water Wars were real and that very same water led to the growth and population spurt of Southern California.

Throw in some intrigue, incest, Jack Nicholson and John Huston - what's not to like?

Boring. As. Hell.

Lame dialogue. Lame pace (exceptionally slow). Lame acting outside Jack.

I was amused when I read that a script for a sequel (Cloverleaf) mutated into "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".

Yay! You liked the movie and it got a lot of awards

He didn't like the movie and found it to be a waste of time.

Good for you.
