    As for the conflict between the two of them....my feelings toward that have only gotten worse since I typed that up last night.

    [SPOILERS REDACTED]

    I really hate to do the Randy thing where I shit all over a movie for choosing to be something other than what I think it should be. But why raise any of these ideas about a person's past haunting/helping them in the future if you're just going to end the movie with a thoughtless set piece?


    I actually thought about this while watching the movie, that idea of connecting them wasn't fully realized. When the movie finally brought them together again I thought they would have some sort of simultaneous epiphany and resolve the conflict. As it is we just got something weirdly Heroes-y. Also there's a weird tension in the film's message: can people escape what kind of people they are?



    SPOILERS I GUESS

    Joe Joe (thanks for that one) seems to thinks HE can't, but that the kid can. I stopped thinking about the connection problem but this one stuck with me.

    A new short film that I made with my brother and our friend Merne.

    Now, I specifically waited until after my birthday to post it here because I don't want any gift reviews. We sort of made this movie up as we shot and cut it, and while I think there are some really interesting/cool ideas beneath it, I don't think they really came through. I think most people will see this as little more than a camera test, but I want to know what (if anything) you get out of it. You know, if you care enough to spend nine and a half minutes watching it in the first place.

    I felt this was a look at the daily life of SoulDischarge.

    What were your tools for the job? During production and post (FCP/AVID/Premiere). I take it a friend scored it?

    Shot on a 5D Mark II, edited (including what little sound editing took place) in FCP 5. I'm pretty satisfied with how the image quality came out considering how little planning/resources went into it, so I would imagine I'll be using them again on my next, hopefully better-conceived project.

    Default lens for the 5D? or do you have a tasty selection? I ask as some shots seemed a bit richer in color than others, or did you color correct a little?

    Default lens. The only color correction was on the black and white / sepia sequences. Which shots did you think were beefed up?

    Cocteau's The Blood of a Poet is maybe the most befuddling film I've ever watch for school. No idea.

    I actually thought about that one after I said that and almost made an amendment to my original statement. That is a genuinely good movie.

    I actually like a lot of the Besson written/produced movies, even if they are dumb/trashy. The Transporter series, Crimson Rivers, Wasabi, and District B13 are all a blast.

    I watched Basic Instinct for the first time tonight. i had never imagined that it was such a paul verhoeven film, in every sense. I guess i didn't know what it was beyond the infamous moment. This is such a trashy, schlocky, sleazy, ridiculous bit of fun nonsense. i laughed out loud several times and loved every single fucking bit of it. I was kind of flabbergasted at the absolutely outrageous amount of extremely graphic, gratuitous sex and nudity in it (and both Tripplehorn and Stone look AMAZING in this), but the dialogue is insanely stupid and funny, the car chases come out of nowhere, the murders are as violent and bloody as possible, Jerry Goldsmith's score is so out of place...just so much good stuff. it's kind of like a film noir movie, and kind of a movie about '80s excess (even though it came out in 1993), but the plot gets so unnecessarily convoluted and full of dumb tangents and revelations, that ultimately it's about Michael Douglas grimacing and acting like a psychopath and Sharon Stone being naked and/or extremely clever and/or bitchy. And I'm okay with that. Somehow Verhoeven is able to make terrible movie that completely transcend what a bad movie is and end up being immensely enjoyable, because I honestly can't wait to watch this again. The ending is especially incredible.

    I just watched Prometheus last night, funny enough. Was alright. Flawed and the characters are pretty impossible to care about - what a massive fucking waste of Charlize Theron and Idris Elba - but still, I enjoyed it. Didn't hold up to much thought, but it tipped along at a decent pace and had a strong look. I think mebbe I've gotten less demanding in my old age.

    The look of Prometheus, the story behind it, and Michael Fassbender's performance make that movie for me. I love it.

    It seems that anyone who actually likes Prometheus should probably avoid every piece of writing on it and every single part of the DVD/BD release except for the movie itself. Ridley appears hell-bent on destroying anything interesting about it via the press.
