Your icon may console you for this discrepancy.
I don't know how they failed to market Incredibles into a huge franchise the way they are doing with other ones.
The Decline Of Western Civilization (part II, and parts I & III two weeks later) are screening at the Bing Theater, thanks to the Academy. Penelope Spheeris will be in attendance.
Coachellas attended: 2007-present
The excellent Kathleen Hanna doc The Punk Singer is now up on Netflix Instant, as is The Grandmaster.
Noah is garbage. It's a garbage film with garbage writing.
The Raid 2 is fantastic!
Saw Nymphomaniac last night and really liked it. Like tallguy said before I'm also not too fond of how they split the movie into two parts because the first part doesn't really feel like it can stand on its own. So thats annoying, but other then that the movie is actually really good so far. The acting is good, the dialogue is actually really entertaining. It's also great seeing a film that has so much sex but in a way that isn't really necessarily sexual at all. It simply serves the purpose of the story. Another random thing though is I've always been really bugged by Von Trier's constant moving/zooming in and out camera but I think its actually works out well with this film for some reason. I'll definitely be back next week for part II.
link rather than c+p.
Has anyone noticed all the smut shops and theaters in Hill Valley at the beginning of Back to the Future?
I finally got around to The Counselor tonight. The dialogue definitely makes it obvious to have been written by a novelist, but it's a criminally overlooked film. It's a thriller that is enough unlike other thrillers that it's really worth everybody's time.
I realize I'm only about a month late on this, but I went to go see The Grand Budapest Hotel this past weekend, and generally found it lovely. All of the painted set miniatures and candy-colored architecture was charming, as were the montages of M. Gustave's many lady friends and (especially) the Society of the Crossed Keys.
However, in some ways, I thought Anderson went to a place a little darker than normal with TGBH: racial profiling at border crossings, a military occupation evocative of Nazi history, and more than one bloody severed body part turned gag. And I'm not really sure how I feel about that. I'm all for Anderson using his trademark whimsy to touch on themes of family drama, romance, or personal discovery. I'm not sure if I'm as comfortable with him coating a referenced history of political oppression in a dusting of pastel pink powdered sugar.
Oh man, just saw Noah. You guys weren't lying...
Four Lions is one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile. Leave it to the British to make a film about suicide bombers that is both side-splitting and on point in more than one way. Expiring in a few days on Netflix if you haven't seen it.
Sssssooooo I watched The Three Colors Trilogy again while I'm on spring break and it's still the best shit ever if you had forgotten. Red may be a top 10 film for me, I love it so.
Red is amazin!
Also, I was never over the moon with White but after another watch and checking out some of supplements on the Criterion discs I'm beginning to realize its perhaps the most nuanced of the three and the biggest reflection of Kieślowski himself.
I am seeing Under The Skin tonight at the Arclight and Very excited for it!
