    I guess I need to follow better people on twitter. I'm going Saturday 15th at 4:45pm. Got a dead center seat and am really excited since the other time I went to the dome I was off too the side and it was not as pleasant as I had heard it was.

    Samsara was pretty incredible. This won't surprise anyone but it's possibly the most visually amazing film I've seen in a theater, and that's due to some unbelievably crisp digital transferring they were able to do from 70mm. As for the merits of the film, it really treads much of the same ground that Baraka did, but does a really good job of exploring its themes and establishing a rhythm through editing. There are a couple ham-fisted moments but some really wonderful ones too. I don't feel like I need to say this but I'll reiterate - go see this if you can, preferably on the finest quality digital projection system possible.
    I saw it last night, and liked it a lot. I have to say though, definitely a substantial drop from Baraka for me. All of the nature/animals/pre-modern civilization shots in Baraka were absolutely stunning, and didn't seem to have an agenda behind them. This felt different. Not only the blatant indictments of modern America (fast food, guns), but just the more current day and age urban/city life focus this one had wasn't nearly as transcendent. It was shot beautifully, and on a technical level it's every bit the marvel that Baraka was. But I don't care what kind of music you play behind it, or what angle you shoot it from, I'm just not going to think much of a hispanic dude covered with tattoos from head to toe clutching an infant or find it appealing in any way.

    All that might sound like I didn't like the film, and I did like it quite a bit. It just didn't have nearly the same effect on me that Baraka did a few months ago.

    I got a text yesterday before the Samsara screening when I was up at USC last night and secured row GG tickets for the 8pm showing on opening night on my phone!

    Kubrick exhibition at the Eye in Amsterdam was pretty cool. One room dedicated to each movie.

    Also, It'll be in LA in Nov.

    One of the reasons it sucks where I live is never getting access to this kind of stuff.

    Watched The Raid and Porco Rosso last night. It's amazing how much more i cared about an animated pig and his would-be lover than any of the characters in The Raid. Fight scenes were cool though.

    Porco Rosso is my favorite Ghibli movie! So fun.

    I'm going to watch The Raid on my day off today.

    Cannibal Holocaust. If you are going to venture far away from home and shove yourselves in the native's faces, don't be too obnoxious about it. Or you may get fucked, butchered, and eaten.

    The scene with the tortoise. *shudders*
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    In the interest of the forum, I'm watching the Alien3 Director's Cut right now.

    My wife bullied me into watching "Lawless" yesterday. I immediately perked up when I realized it was the "The Proposition" crew - Nick Cave wrote it and the director was the same director from that earlier film, and Guy Pearce had a juicy role. "The Proposition" is an excellent and unpredictable movie Unfortunately, Lawless is not. Some great visuals and interesting sequences, but pretty much paint-by-numbers story, fueling a whole conversation about the impact Hollywood has had on *everything* - Nick Cave isn't a Hollywood kind of guy, so I'm presuming the source material (a book by the grandson of the protag) was structured like a blockbuster movie.

    They packaged Lawless with the trailer for "The Master". It sucks when the movie you want to see from the trailers is so much better than the one you're watching.

    Went to John Williams at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night and towards the end, they live scored the last entire last reel of E.T. (from the Escape on the bikes to the end of the film ). They used the brand new HD version that will be on the blu-ray, and for you old schoolers out there, yes, the guns are back in the film - no more walkie talkies held like pistols.
    Coachellas attended: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (W1), 2013 (W1)

    Supposedly they aren't even putting the 2002 version on the Blu-ray, so no need to worry.

    Troma have been quietly adding the majority of their catalog to Youtube, so if it's it been too long since you soaked in it here's your fast access to crowd favorites like Killer Condom and Dead Dudes in the House.

    I enjoyed Tree of Life. I think you have to be more patient and open to what the filmmaker is doing -- a lot of it plays out like some sort of nostalgic dream the lead character is having about his childhood, his family, and his place in the universe.
