Where did you watch this? I was going to buy it before I even watched it but it doesn't include subs. I kept trying to download it and they didn't have subs either. It looks like an awesome movie though.

though, i wouldn't be surprised if there are faster torrents out there, for i simply chose this one because it was the first i noticed that had english subtitles.

If anyone is a film festival type and you get a chance to see Silver Tongues, I suggest watching it. Movie fucking rules.

Red State was a pleasant surprise. I don't care for Kevin Smith at all, but it's an awesome little movie. Check it out.

unholy living dead wrote:i finished my Buñuel marathon last night. before this two weeks of watching mainly just Buñuel films i had only seen Un chien andalou and The Exterminating Angel, now i've seen probably the majority of his work, though i didn't watch a lot from the 50's. what i watched was as follows... The Young and the Damned, The Golden Age, Viridiana, Diary of a Chambermaid, Belle de jour, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Nazarin, Simon of the Desert, Ensayo de un crimen, The Young One, The Milky Way, Tristana, The Phantom of Liberty, and That Obscure Object of Desire. i'll watch more of his films from the 50's some other time. in the end i must recommend all of his films to those who haven't watched them yet.


I just saw Land Without Bread, it was great. He manages to make his documentarys surreal. Before that I had only seen Un Chien Andalou. Looks like I have quite a few more to check out.

i finally watched Melville’s' Le Deuxieme Souffle. i'm quite disappointed it took me so long to see it, especially because it's yet another great film by Meliville. i didn't look at the length of it before watching so i was surprised by how much story was in this film. Lino Ventura was unsurprisingly perfect as an older badass...
Image
the cinematography was pretty good, with a few very nice shots. also the character Orloff seems like a pre-Jef Costello, perhaps Melville was testing the idea of a cool, quite, confident gangster first in a smaller role with Orloff before writing Le Samourai with Jef Costello. overall it's a very enjoyable watch, which isn't surprising when it comes to Melville's films.


pump it up, i have only seen a couple small pieces of Land Without Bread, but i'm sure it's an interesting watch. Buñuel's films are generally quite consistently good, though some are better than other, so you might as well start from around his beginning and progress to his later films.

I'd like to throw this into the mix as well. One of my favorite films of the year. If you liked In Bruges, you'll love this.

you're very welcome. as for the .mkv file, it worked on the video player i usually use, KMPlayer, but i'm not quite sure what other video players are capable of playing .mkv videos. you might as well download the torrent, for it's a great film, and if the video player you use now doesn't work simply download KMPlayer, which is free, or something similar that can play .mkv videos.

I tested it out on VLC player and it worked great. I don't know anything about .mkv but it downloaded at over 800kb/s. I have never been over 400kb/s before, it downloaded crazy quick.

also, i love .mkv files.

the size is small, but the quality is just as good.

Also you can use VLC or Media Player Classic, which also is good if you get the right codecs.

I just got back from a screening of Surviving Hitler - A Love Story. It was a rough cut of the film (some of the audio/basic editing needs to be done) but I really enjoyed it. Very emotional, and a breath of fresh air in a sea of endless WWII documentaries. If it comes anywhere near you, I highly recommend it.

I went in with high hopes, but it never really clicked with me. The ending in particular bothered me. The one upside to it, however, was that it did for Will Ferrell what "Punch Drunk Love" did for Adam Sandler - prove he can act. I hope he'll start taking more serious roles despite Everything Must Go being a box office flop.

Just got back from "Warrior" - I'll admit, at the beginning, it seems so generic and played out. But right when it was shaping up to be "The Wrestler Pt 2", it took a turn and ended up being a great movie. I highly recommend it.

I thought it really could have done without the PBR/records/polaroid camera/melancholy indie type score. It seemed really targeted towards the urban outfitter type demographic. Also, I thought it was boring.

Watched a few movies lately

All the Gosling ones I mentioned (minus Blue Valentine, so Lars and The Real Girl, Half Nelson, The Believer and The United states of Leland) and they were all very good films. Well directed, awesome performances. No Complaints.

The Believer definitely stands out from them though. It's a very cool concept and a different kind of film you don't see very often. I liked that you could tell it wasn't made to be popular or to be a mainstream movie, and was just made as an art piece, which I can deal with.

Also watched dank. It's older but I had never seen it before so I watched it on Netflix and it wasn't what I was expecting at all. The description of it was very vague but I love Ellen Page and I like Patrick Wilson so I decided to give it a go. Very good if you like suspenseful movies without all the special fx of a hollywood blockbuster with a B script.

whatever you do, DONT watch Our Idiot Brother, fucking awful :smt011

edit: Agreed with Genu, grave encounters was terrible...I mean wasn't expecting much from it in the first place but it disappointed on a far greater scale.

i enjoyed Lilja 4-Ever when i was watching a few of Lukas Moodysson's films months ago, however, i find some of the non-diegetic music distracting, in particular the metal stuff around the beginning and end when Lilja is running around. it's still a very good, sad movie. i personally like Fucking Åmål and Together more.

as for right now, i have no idea what to watch next... any recommendation would be lovely.

I felt like shit this weekend, so I watched a few movies.

Something Borrowed may have the most unintentionally unlikable characters in any movie ever. Still, it was better than I expected.

Porky's will always be my favorite comedy film. It never gets old.

Basket Case - stupid horror fun. I love it.

I've been on a good run with movies lately. My university had a Outdoors-Cinema-festival last weekend. We had an old Projector and a screen in the centre of an old Barracks-type of setting. The Highlights were definetly Akira Kurosawas Dersu Uzala and Andrei Tarkovskis STALKER.

Also, The Tree Of Life.. Mind blown. Absolutely beautiful. Best movie-experience in awhile. But it definetly splits opinions. IMO it was probably Malick's best yet. Although The Thin Red Line is still one of the best war-movies ever made.

Drive is what would happen if Michael Mann made a slow paced Le Samourai. Great performances all around, a killer score, unusual but great pacing, and cool and clean cinematography, oh yeah and some intense violence. It is definitely in my top five of the year and I highly recommend it.
