    I have zero problem separating the art from the artist. The way I see it, people like Polanski and (allegedly) Allen are only the ones who have been caught/publicly accused. We'd likely be appalled by several of our favorite musicians/filmmakers if we were privy to all of their actions. That said, this top photo totally creeps me out now haha.

    Last night I went to a screening of Our Robocop Remake, a project organized by Dave Seger from Channel 101, in which roughly 60 teams of filmmakers took on 60 scenes from the original Robocop. It is one of the funniest, strangest, and incredible things I have ever seen. I was dying the entire time.



    I imagine it will be available to watch in its entirety online in the near future, and I cannot recommend it enough.

    And here is a photo with me and some friends the incredible ED-209 costume/puppet from one of the scenes.

    Has anyone seen All is Lost? I hadn't heard anything about it whatsoever, but I saw it tonight on a whim. It stars Robert Redford as a man who appears to be a well-to-do retired solo sailor in a nice, modest yacht. He wakes up one morning to find his ship punctured by a shipping container adrift at sea. He has to fix a hole and bail out the yacht, and things continue from there. Redford is the only face on-screen the whole time, and he only speaks, at most, ten lines over the course of the film. He does an excellent job of embodying this old, obviously skilled sailor. The bare-bones plot was forgiven, for my, by his strong performance and the spare film-making. There were some gorgeous shots of the ocean and a really desolate atmosphere created by the vast amounts of space it provides. I enjoyed the hell out of it.

    Yeah, I liked that one ok. Surprisingly captivating for something with zero dialogue and only one actor for 90 minutes.

    Speaking of which, enjoyed Polanski’s Knife in the Water as it really stirred the loins without having to resort to a bunch of nudity. All the playful teasing and power struggles was enough. Did beat off.

    Anyone in LA/Hollywood area been to the Chinese theater since TCL redid with IMAX? There's a number of contradicting reviews about it on yelp saying its smaller then a real imax screen but then others saying its the 3rd largest in the US? Pretty much deciding between seeing the rerelease of Gravity 3D in the Dome at Arclight hollywood or TCL chinese IMAX. Thoughts appreciated.

    The issue is that it's being billed at the third largest "commercial" screen, so not as large as what you'll find at museums, but the issue with that is that there are screen like the Edwards in Irvine and the AMC at Universal, that play both kinds of films, so they're not technically included in that list. The reported dimensions of it definitely make it a real IMAX though, and definitely bigger than the Dome.

    Ugh, might as well go to the Rave18 IMAX, great great experiences there. Thanks for info. I think it may be worth it for the IMAX sound standards, also there seem to be good comments about the 3d glasses at the Chinese theater, plus stadium seating which has been a downfall at the Dome in some of my experiences on crowded nights there.

    I found it really hard to see anything else happening in it past the extreme gore and honest portrayal of how injured those men got. Far too much for my liking. The Explosions in the Sky score was nice, and the performances were good not great. The grandiose "men who have fallen" montage of pictures was banging you over the head by the end of you already being assaulted. But obviously it struck a chord with the old man bawling next to me and the gaggle of woman trying to remedy their tears with some off-putting laughs...

    One note though, DAT SOUND DESIGN. MY GOD.

    If you want to stick around the area that day, assuming you aren't watching the game, Wolf of Wall Street in the dome would be fantastic. That movie will command anyones attention for 3 hours, the big dome screen would be icing. Her is in the dome right after Gravity, a beautiful looking movie as well. Her would be nice post Gravity. Or catch a regular screened time of Inside Llewyn Davis to wine down-- not getting enough sadly. Heartbreaking movie. There's some good shit in theaters! Enjoy Gravity!

    David Cronenberg's Shivers is a damn masterpiece. That's the second in as many films of his that I've seen that aren't as well known that I've liked more than some of his bigger titles (the other being The Brood a few months ago). So good. I enjoyed both of those two over Dead Ringers and even The Fly. Videodrome and Crash remain the two best I've seen of his at this point.

    After watching about 15 minute of Paolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty on my laptop yesterday, it became apparent that I needed to see it on the largest screen possible. So I bolted up to the Laemmle in Santa Monica for what I was under the impression was going to be a wonderful experience, and I really didn't like what I saw. The film gets somewhat of a pass for how incredible the camera work was...it really was something to take in at times, and that aspect of it was really good. But I'm not sure I've ever seen a film so up its own ass before. Imagine The Wolf of Wall Street, but without Scorsese's sense of humor. It hints at wanting to be an art film without any kind of follow through at all, making the more abstract elements come off as completely arbitrary. I'm sure there's a way to make a good film that depicts the empty lives of pretentious Roman socialites, but Sorrentino didn't do it here. Instead, he let their vapid ways become his style instead of his subject.

    Speaking of characters' vapid ways becoming the style instead of the subject, I watched The Canyons last night and it was a total disaster. Paul Schrader took a fairly interesting concept - the death of cinema via usurpation by talentless, vapid, social media-obsessed hacks - and runs it into the ground with bad acting, amateurish (intentionally?) direction and a dull, one-note script. One might argue that that is the film's entire point, but I wasn't buying it at all.

    I didn't love it, but I was really happy with the accuracy. I like the actors (Alpha Dog reunion FTW!) a lot and generally enjoy military flicks. That said, it doesn't rank up there with the likes of "Glory" of "Platoon" for me, or my other fave military movies (and I love Edward Zwick's style). It was a great effort that could have used some time shifting and a little compression.... which is to say by the end I was ready for it to be over. But seeing the ridiculousness of being shot more times than a target range and rolling down mountains multiple times.... Ffffff. Those guys were hardcore.

    I'm not a fan of armed conflict at all, but if you're going to engage in it, you should have some of the toughest, most well trained soldiers on the planet. This movie was a reflection of that, no matter where you side on the war/peace issue.

    Yes! I loved that movie, especially the shots of the younger girl musing over love on the park bench and drifting in in the ocean. Also really loved the bar scene when they met and the scene when they met up after they broke up. The two actresses had such amazing chemistry.

It's a really beautiful film for being a small coming of age story.
    Just watched this. I expected quirky and somewhat overly cutesy characters. Based on the trailer, I even expected it to be as well shot as it was. What I didn't expect was it to be so laugh out loud hilarious. The hardest I've laughed in a long time. Really liked it.

    LOL. Really? That was just about the most credibly stuff in the entire doc, and really the only part that had any substantive evidence backing it.

    If you're analyzing the film in terms of whether the narrators readings of the film are "correct" or not, I think you're a missing the larger theme that the movie was trying to express.

    Default Re: Schoolio's Movie Corner

    Kvnty - get your head out of your [Filipino rent boy's] ass. In what alternate universe do Nebraska and Philomena have a better chance at Best picture than American Hustle or Wolf of Wall Street? This isn't the Independent Spirit Awards. And if McConaughey is going to be upset by anyone in the Best Actor race, it's going to be Chiwetel Ejiofor, not the (no doubt, respectable) Bruce Dern. Also, what's up with your gross "darkie vote" comment, dude? Jesus.


    Saw Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen in Hollywood a couple of weeks ago. Hadn't seen the film (on any screen size) since I was a kid and it was a rare treat to see such a well made, big, lavish Hollywood epic. BTW, if you can find Peter O'Toole interviews in which he discusses filming the big ensemble scenes with hundreds of extras and wildly unpredictable camels, it sounds like a miracle that he and Omar Sharif survived the filming.
