Film Thread

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

The old film thread got deleted so let's get the snobbery going again.
I'm currently sitting on a cool stack of Criterion films snagged from my birthday/the Criterion sale so I'm excited to work through all of those.
What are you sons of bitches watching?

i always hate when these threads get deleted; it's we the regular posters of these threads who are at fault for not contributing to it to keep it from getting deleted. so here's to hoping this one will flourish.

i wish i had the money to buy any kind of dvd/blu-rays, but especially Criterion ones. the only Criterion i have is The 400 Blows on blu-ray.

tonight i watched Modern Times. one of Chaplin's most popular films that took me far too long to get around to watching. unsurprisingly, it was lovely. Chaplin is hilarious and Paulette Goddard was gorgeous. also the story is great. highly recommended if one is in the mood for comedy and social commentary.

Jean-Paul Belmondo was a good actor and such a handsome dude.

The only thing I have to report is that Captain America was boring.

Haven't been watching much, although I'd like to sit down and do The Godfather trilogy again.

Also, to the guy who was looking for Win Win in the last film thread, it's hit the torrent sites. Highly recommended. Great little dark comedy.

Is Criterion still on Netflix or have they moved it to Hulu+ yet?

I can't remember ever seeing a superhero movie (since I was a kid) that was actually good.

The Believer is an awesome movie.

Just saw Horrible Bosses, walked out after about 45 minutes.

yesterday i watched Paper Man and Hesher. Paper Man was your basic indie character study, pretty mediocre. Hesher has elements of being a basic indie but then it turns around and completely fucks your notion of what you think is going to happen, i loved it

so today i finally watched Midnight in Paris. i adore Woody Allen, though, i haven't seen many of his modern films, but this one was quite enjoyable. the story is somewhat similar to The Purple Rose of Cairo, which i enjoyed as well, but this one has a significantly more upbeat ending. i was quite surprised how well Owen Wilson fit as a Woody Allen protagonist. i also really loved seeing everyone from Hemingway to Dalí interact with Gil. in the end i liked the message and had a lovely time. my favourite moment was when Gil explains the plot of The Exterminating Angel to Buñuel and he just completely doesn't understand the premise of why the guests can't leave.

I finally saw this for the first time and loved every minute of it. I definitely want to rewatch it though, as I think I'd understand it better the more I watch it. I'm pretty into Lynch's works. Blue Velvet being another one of my favorites, I've also seen Lost Highway, Wild At Heart, and of course Eraserhead.

I just saw Another Earth in theaters the other day and was completely surprised by it. I went in expecting it to be good, but then it took it to another level completely for me.

Lastly, been watching a lot of Jean Luc Godard and Fellini films.

This was my favorite part as well, his reaction is so great. I feel like I could see Midnight In Paris again and again and not get sick of it.

I definitely get on Godard kicks where I only want to watch his films and no others and then Ill go a while without watching a single Godard film. All of my favorite Godard films are starring Anna Karina, naturally.
In regards to Fellini, I really like Amarcord and Divorce: Italian Style but loathe La Dolce Vita. I've tried watching it a few times but I can never bring myself to finish it. I wanted to get into it, finish it and, hell, even like it, but no dice.
I dont know, its weird cuz its not a film I wasnt into and then just disregarded- I put in a lot of time, thought and effort trying to enjoy the damn thing. What do you guys think about it? After this long-winded post I'm probably going to give it another shot some time.

kickassddl blogspot.com has WIN WIN good rip on file share. I'm pretty excited to see it but I feel like it wont be as good as the other two mccarthy films.

I still have Jules and Jim from netflix, I just can't really get into it.

i personally like Godard much more than Fellini. of the Fellini films i have seen i like Amarcord, Nights of Cabiria, I Vitelloni, and 8½. i unfortunatly went into watching La Strada with far too high of expectations, not to say i think it's a bad film or anything, Giulietta Masina is delightful to watch, i should try to rewatch it again. i kind of have a rule for myself to watch films in their entirety - even in the case of films i'm not into, for example: Tokyo Drifter. and so i watched all of La Dolce Vita, but wasn't really impressed with it either. the cinematography is pretty nice at times, but that's about it. i probably should rewatch it again as well, though.

a few friends and I had a movie marathon recently.

watched Happiness by Todd Solondz and the pedophilia shit definitely made for a hilariously uncomfortable viewing session.
Also watched Transcendent Man and has some interesting and contrary discussions about the future of technology. A math major friend of mine was really pissed at all the use of "the exponential" to explain away everything. He linked me to some mathy shit I don't understand.

aaaaaand we watched one called Frequently Asked Questions about Time Travel that was a lighter british comedy. Thought it was cheesy as all fuck but enjoyed some of the humor. Had the cop-dude from Bridesmaids and Anna Farris.

Someone chose Uwe Boll's Postal and even though I'm usually alright with horrifically shitty movies this one started around 10 hours into the marathon and almost gave me an ulcer. If this shithead can fund a movie I sure as hell can at some point.

Fell asleep during Joon-ho Bong's Mother because I'd seen it already, but that is a really amazing film.

8 1/2 will always be my favorite Fellini film. That film is so fucking cool.

I havent but I remember it came out in the late 70's/early 80's and had John Travolta in it and it was something about a sound guy who records a murder and people come after him or something like that

I actually re-watched Mulhulland Dr. on Saturday. I enjoyed it a lot more the second time around, the Silenco scene is amazing. I'm going to try to tackle Inland Empire again this weekend, but I have a stack of Criterion's that I haven't watched yet. (The Wages of Fear, House and Shock Corridor)

I reluctantly picked up Blow Out during the Criterion sale and, good god, was I impressed. I was in awe at the end. My eyes and mind just stood still during the credits and I just stared at the DVD menu for a while afterward. I went to bed in a weird, melancholic mood afterward, too. I dunno, I guess I got pretty involved in that film because when I watch a movie, I usually just take the disc out and go do something else without just stewing like I did with Blow Out.

I just watched Life During Wartime, I had been looking to seeing it for a while. It had some funny/uncomfortable moments, but I definitely like Happiness a lot more.

Saw Captain America, :smt015.

Last night I watched Peter Jackson's Meet the Feebles. It was pretty bizarre, had lots of pervy puppet sex/puppets doing drugs, pretty much the x rated version of the muppets. It cracks me up that the guy responsible for one of the highest grossing trilogy's of all time is the mastermind behind Bad Taste/Dead Alive/Meet the Feebles.

I just saw this:
http://www.vbs.tv/watch/umshini-wam--2/umshini-wam
and thought it was fucking hilarious.
That inspired me to re-watch Mr. Lonely, I liked it a lot more than I remembered.

I dont get it. I always see people posting while watching a movie and I always see someone's picture taken with a webcam that someone's uploaded with the caption saying something to the effect of, "Just hangin & watchin _________."
Are you browsing the internet while watching this movie or what? Ill never have any clue as to how people can do this and not have any idea what's going on.

when I'm a good amount into the movie and its not that great, i start browsing while watching it.

Dog Day Afternoon was great, so many great movies during that era. I've been wanting to the see the conversation for awhile but its always hard for me to commit to 2 hour movies :smt012

I saw Win Win today, its not a bad movie by any means but nothing special.

tonight i watched In a Lonely Place. i love film noirs so very much. Bogart was unsurprisingly great, and Gloria Grahame was stunning.

The World Is My Fuse, i, too, don't understand how people can half watch movies while doing other things. though, i presume these multitasking viewers have movies playing purely for entertainment and nothing more. personally, when at home, i watch films by myself, with as little light in the room as possible, and when i'm watching a film on my computer i use my headphones so i can hear even the slightest details in the audio.

also, rafael1188, i feel the same way about Win Win. it's not bad, but far from great.

My eyes and mind just stood still during the credits and I just stared at the DVD menu for a while afterward. I went to bed in a weird, melancholic mood afterward, too. I dunno, I guess I got pretty involved in that film because when I watch a movie, I usually just take the disc out and go do something else without just stewing like I did with Blow Out.

I was pretty shocked at the ending too actually. The whole movie is just one great big paranoia film, and it rules.

Wow, how fucking pretentious could you possibly get? If this is the kind of attitude that's perpetuated by this revival of the film thread then count me out.

On a more horror-related note, I saw Fulci's "New York Ripper" today. Can't say I really loved it, although it has some very gruesome deaths and awkward sex scenes. Typical Italian horror. I'd say 3/5.

Seeing "The Guard" tonight, which looks promising. I'll have a short review up tomorrow.
