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.

On the subject of older movies- I watched the Bicycle Thief (an Italian movie) recently. That was a good movie.

Hadn't seen this in a while. If you haven't seen it, you should.

If you liked The Bicycle Thief, you will probably like a newer movie, Wendy and Lucy.

I do want to see that. I also watched the 400 Blows recently. It was good. Not as good as The Bicycle Thief, but good.

I think those are two of the most prominent examples of two similar eras/styles of film that stressed realism -- Italian Neorealism and the French New Wave.

The Italian neorealists were pretty serious people, not entertainers, although The Bicycle Thief certainly can be seen as entertaining. I also feel it's better than 400 Blows, but 400 Blows is remarkable. Much better than Jules and Jim, imo.

I want to see more Italian neorealism. I think it's truly worthy of admiration. It really inspired a great deal, not really about what movies should look like, but what they should be saying.

Amazing, magnificent, next-level movie. Moved me on a level only a handful of movies have. I've never seen a film where so much effort was put into every single shot. Great... everything.

I will immediately buy the blu-ray and kick myself in the ass for not seeing this in the theater.

On a 10 scale, this is a 20.
Glad you enjoyed it, saw it twice in theaters myself...it's a pretty awesome movie. I suggest reading the graphic novel or renting the graphic novel dvd as well. The GN is worth it, ive read it twice now.

I kept dreading that it would be some ****tarded Coen brothers ending that would make me want to kill everybody who recommended it, but thankfully that didn't happen.
She gets naked in everything...except this movie which i was shocked

But shit, that's what ginormous screens are for.
Wait to rent transformers, i hated it in theaters. I might enjoy it more at home honestly but not by much...too long and well stupid as hell

As I write this, knowing you, this is probably an epically stupid question, but have you seen Scorsese's documentary/commentary where he discusses keystones in Italian postwar cinema? It was like 4 or 6 hours long and aired on IFC or TCM, IIRC.
EDIT - titled Il mio viaggio in Italia

Well, the getting-bent-over-the-pool-table bit was okay.

She does it for me on every level.
