    The screening of God Bless America was wonderful, I encourage EVERYONE on this board to see it.

    Don't know if you guys have discussed it yet, but I loved the new Whit Stillman. I had forgotten that it always takes about a half hour or so to get submerged in the dialogue of his characters, but once I fully locked in, it was some great stuff.

    I watched Deconstructing Henry last night, under the impression that it was one of the more laugh-packed Woody Allen comedies. I didn't find it to be that uproarious, but it was still pretty enjoyable.

    Definitely not one of his "most laughed-packed" comedies. That would probably go to Bananas or even Sleepers, for just plain slapstick comedy. Even Sweet & Lowdown and Small Time Crooks would be better straight-forward "comedies." I guess what i'm saying is you got bad advice.

    Yeah, Deconstructing Harry gets downright depressing as the movie goes on. I do always get a kick out of the kid naming his penis after John Dillinger. I need to rewatch that movie.

    Thinking about taking in ‘John Carter’ at the $3 place up the street this weekend, as it seems like it might be decent, but then again it’s also Disney and don’t want just a ‘Prince of Persia on Mars’ or something.

    I know plenty of people that enjoyed John Carter, but I was not one of them. It may have been that it was more enjoyable in 3D? For $3 though you could do worse.

    This is awesome...

    Deconstructing Harry was one of the first Woody Allen films I saw and I've always been kind of fond of it. It's got some of his darkest humor.


    I re-watched Johnny Guitar for the first time in probably 10 years on a bus yesterday. It's definitely one of the oddest old school Westerns out there, all subversive sexual politics and impressionistic colors. While Sterling Hayden's character gets claim to the film's title, there's no question that the whole show belongs to Joan Crawford. Instead of your typical hyper masculine cowboy hero worship, the women drive all the action in this one, regardless of whether the men realize it or not. Pretty much all the townsfolk are totally subservient to Crawford's rival, played by Mercedes McCambridge. It's possible to read some homoerotic subtext in their rivalry. Plus there's some pretty ripe verbal sparring as loaded as anything this side of a Howard Hawks film, especially between Hayden and Crawford. You also get a ton of great character actors in supporting roles, including Ernest Borgnine. And how many Westerns are there out there that let the costume design tell half the story?



    All in all, a odd somewhat overlooked classic well worth hunting down. And check the IMDB trivia facts: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047136/trivia


    Also watched Princess Mononoke for the first time, which was simply stunning. Might be the most impressive Miyazaki I've seen thus far, but I could probably stand to re-watch all of them. It definitely seemed to be one of his most mature films anyway, in both content (I was surprised at how violent/gory it was) and thematically.

    If you haven't seen Miyazaki's Nausicaa you should. It's the most similar to Mononoke in terms of tone. Everyone should try getting their hands on the Nausicaa manga too, it's insane, stunning, and heartbreaking. The movie gets to very little of the whole story.

    Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur is a bleak and wonderful meditation on (as I read it) the personal cost of anger. Peter Mullan is one of those rare actors who can elevate any film (even something lame like On a Clear Day), so when he's able to find a project that matches his talent it's a rare treat. Mullan does a slow burn like nobody's business, and in this movie he practically implodes on himself with barely-contained rage. You spend the entire movie thinking, "This is not going to end well," and that inevitability makes it a disquieting watch. It's pretty great, in other words. And as a longtime fan of Paddy Considine, it's gratifying to see that he's every bit as talented a writer and director as he is an actor. This is on Netflix Instant if you'd like to spend the evening feeling depressed and uncomfortable.

    Prometheus has Alien/Blade Runner ties story-wise?! That's pretty neat if it's true.



    I wonder how the new Total Recall is going to turn out.

    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.
    Loved The Apartment. Jack Lemmon is gold, and it was fun watching Shirley MacLaine as a young, desirable lady. The first time I watched it I was just taking Roger Ebert's "great movies" essays as my personal watch list. I think that was just after "The Conversation". Sometimes critics have value!

    Been on a big Woody Allen kick lately. Watched Manhattan, Midnight in Paris, and Hannah and her Sisters. Loved Midnight in Paris. Hannah I found a bit overrated, although it had good performances.

    Yeah man, Jones really impressed me seeing how his media buildup was "Hey David Bowie's kid happens to be a director."

    I loved that movie and need to revisit. You should seek out his other feature Source Code. Really great.

    According to wikipedia It's supposed to take place in the same universe as Alien, but isn't directly related to the Alien story. I haven't read anything that suggests it has anything to do with Blade Runner.

    I believe Weyland Corporation is supposed to be featured in the movie -- I'm thinking it also features replicants or something.

    why in the fuck would they waste a couple million dollars for a replicant cat just to have it dick around on a shitty space freighter? I still don't understand how people are saying that one universe has anything to do with the other besides both having androids

    Where have you read/heard this at? I felt a very evil presence from that cat in Alien, especially when it watched the demise of the crew member.

    It is incredibly, obviously part of the Alien universe, and it's even officially been placed into a timeline where it takes place before the other films. Have you not read anything about the movie? The idea that it somehow has anything to do with Blade Runner is silly, especially when Scott has already said that he's probably going to do either a sequel or prequel to Blade Runner.

    I caught another Bresson double-header at the Aero last night. Au Hasard Balthazar was even more harrowing on second take, to the point that I wanted the lights to stay down during the break between films and just sit in the dark. Mouchette, which I had not seen before, came next. There are a couple bits of abstraction (namely, the final beat) that I didn't entirely get, but overall I thought it was terrific. I was deeply impressed by the emotional authenticity with which the film threw its young heroine into adult circumstances that were well beyond her ability to understand, and apart from Balthazar, I would consider this to be the most visually poetic films in the Bresson canon-that-I've-seen. I'm totally looking forward to The Devil, Probably on Thursday and Lancelot of the Lake & The Trial of Joan of Arc next Sunday.

    Any familiarity at all with the franchise should have made this obvious to him even without Scott's commentary. There has also been marketing up the wazoo too including Weyland's "TED talk" and the website. Don't waste keystrokes with this guy.
