    That was a very strange cameo hahaha

    In other news, i finally got around to Attack the Block last night, and while i was never very excited about any trailers, it truly did live up to every bit of hype it got! What a fucking fantastic movie! it starts right off with a bang and never lets go, and the ending is just phenomenal! Those shots with Moses running through halls of the block with the aliens stampeding after him were breathtaking! The kids were extremely well cast and believable, the action was great, the humor sci fi, and horror/thriller elements all blended very seamlessly, and the logic formed at the end about what the aliens wanted didn't seem too forced. i really enjoyed the score a lot too! Awesome movie. it also helped that there was absolutely no fat - this thing just moves and wastes no time whatsoever, which is refreshing in a time with overly-long action films that spend a lot of time building stuff up.

    EDIT: I'd also like to mention the really smart design of the monsters - obviously very simple, but done is way they are still pretty scary, and the lack of detail/color lent themselves to a smaller budget very well.

    EDIT 2: I just discovered that the score was done by 2 of the guys from Basement Jaxx, which makes a lot of sense.

    Why is everyone skeptical about this movie? Its fucking amazing, probably my favorite or one of my favorite comedies. Highly recommended to anyone that enjoys laughing

    I, too, caught the Avengers. Really cool stuff, and was what I was hoping for. Nothing earth-shaking, but something that was fun, in every sense of the word, and in a way that most movies of this kind haven't been for awhile.

    Also, watched "Escape From New York" on TCM of all places. Hadn't seen it in awhile, and it's still one of Carpenter's best.

    And who knew there'd be a link between these two movies?

    Avengers was fun, but I feel like I need some good, sappy chick flicks to wash the testoterone out of my mouth. Or maybe a really slow-paced Kubrick movie to off-set the insane rollercoaster action. I loved Whedon's snappy dialogue, hated Scar-Jo's delivery. Can they find a new hot action-girl starlet please? One who can act...somewhat?

    Which means it's really on the fence and not a strong R (not that it really needs to be). Scott fought really hard to get a PG-13, all this means is that they really let him not cut what he didn't want to.

    EDIT: I just would not expect the extremely casual swearing of the first 4 films, which greatly attributed to their ratings.

    If you don't recognize "the guy who played John Lennon", it's hard to imagine you've seen enough Apatow movies to even form a sense of skepticism.

    My Avengers-free movie weekend:

    Robocop - This was all sorts of ridiculous fun. I'm not one of these people who thinks Paul Verhoeven is a subversive mastermind; there's way too much straight B-movie in his work (his American work, at least) for me to properly credit him as a brilliant satirist. Still, if one is in the mood for a hyper-violent action film, it's nice to have one that at least attempts to poke fun at some of the cancerous forces in our culture.

    The Apartment - This was my first Billy Wilder film, and it was terrific all around. A nice blend of funny, sad and sharp - I rather enjoyed the absurd early scene where Lemmon's character frantically shuffles around "meetings" between the four horsemen. I was also quite pleased to find that Wilder's visual style was often just as striking as his hallowed writing; the production design of both the office and the apartment were uncommonly expressive, and the photography was well above grade for what I've come to expect out of even high caliber studio romantic comedies.

    Autumn Almanac - A color-drenched outlier in the filmography of Bela Tarr. A web of intimate conspiracies between flatmates, Autumn Almanac has much of Tarr's latter philosophy on its mind (and some fresh ones, as the film's narrative seems to suggest a somewhat-vague critique of Socialism in practice), but it's largely rendered in close-quarters dialogue between two of the five characters at a time. It's not nearly as absorbing as the films that would follow - the physical and existential scope is simply too minute for this to register as one of Tarr's masterworks - but for what feels like a formal exercise (perhaps incorrectly so, in retrospect), it's still plenty compelling and expressive.

    As one of the few who loved World's Greatest Dad, I'm gonna try hard to get into this. And if not this one, then maybe the screening at UCLA on Thursday.

    Beyond the obvious recommendations (Some Like it Hot, Sunset Blvd.), The Lost Weekend is one to watch. Just for the fact that it dealt with some serious issues like alcoholism, and a man on a self-destructive path back in 1945.

    B-movie and well executed satire are not mutually exclusive.

    Robocop is one of those movies I cannot watch enough. I watch i multiple times a year; I've seen it easily over 300 times since I was very young (I am pretty sure I was allowed to watch it as early as 7 years old, as my wonderful mother took me to see the sequel in the theater, which of course horrified me), and it still brings new things to the table with each viewing. it becomes more entertaining when you can literally quote the entire script as it happens on the screen. I'm also very happy they held on to the whole X-rated cut and eventually released it, because the amount of blood is just wonderful.
