Bringing Up Baby - every film should have a cheetah
Deja Vu - a little less cracked-out than I like my Tony Scott, but enjoyable

milo (milo), Monday, 27 November 2006 00:08 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm halfway through both Little Children and Half Nelson. I may not finish the first one, because it's retarded. The second one is not a great movie, but I'll bite the hype on Gosling (though he was better in The Notebook).

Eric H. (Eric H.), Monday, 27 November 2006 01:00 (fifteen years ago) link

Heat
liked it a lot better the second time

dmr, Monday, 27 November 2006 04:00 (fifteen years ago) link

for your consideration - so tired of guest movies. would have liked to see the whole movie of 'home for purim' instead!

tehresa (tehresa), Monday, 27 November 2006 04:03 (fifteen years ago) link

saw this terrible bank hiest movie with my parnts staring denzel washinghton anyway it was nonsensical except for the fact that the banl robbers were dressed like big audio dynamite\
BIG
OWOWAUDIO
DYNAMITE

still relevent.

Also saw For Your Consideration. Best thing about it was the fake ET segments w/ Fred Willard & Jane Lynch. I think they took the supersize cast thing too far with this one. And I hope Catherine O'Hara didn't really get botox.

Saw and liked both Volver and the new documentary about Jonestown this weekend.

jaymc (jaymc), Monday, 27 November 2006 15:57 (fifteen years ago) link

For Your consideration - ambiguous reaction. Pacing - really weird. Fred Willard - comedy gold.

If he'd never made Best In Show, it'd be the best of his modern crop of stuff, though.

I kind of get the feeling someone was hoping Catherine O'Hara would get Oscar nominated for her part in this movie, it will be funnier when she doesn't.

oh, I'd stop Lost Highway frequently. I didn't know Manny F did that, but he IS 90 years old!

The novel Little Children ain't bad, but I'm not surprised Todd Field blew it up to Oscarbait.

I don't know where to read Mr. Film Critic these days.

infernal affairs, post-'departed'. it doesn't hold up, too much musical interlude corny bullshit.

deep space nine (deep space nine), Monday, 27 November 2006 21:15 (fifteen years ago) link

Little Children and Half Nelson will both prob be in my top 10 this year, with the latter near the very top.

jaymc (jaymc), Monday, 27 November 2006 21:23 (fifteen years ago) link

I picked up Bringing Up Baby at Tower and it's not quite as good as I remembered (or My Cousin Vinny), but maybe it's just the ownership effect. Silver City did its predictable (though rapidly diminishing) Sayles sense-of-place thing on me, and Chris Cooper's Bush impression was tiresome for as long as I resisted compartmentalizing it (not too long), but Danny Huston was novel enough, the costumes ruled most movies, and the girls were pretty in a very uncinematic way.

nuneb (nuneb), Monday, 27 November 2006 22:30 (fifteen years ago) link

is little children actually good? it looks so beyond awful.

hank s1ockli (hanks1ockli), Monday, 27 November 2006 22:38 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm a sucker for movies like that.

jaymc (jaymc), Monday, 27 November 2006 22:54 (fifteen years ago) link

speaking of beyond awful: my roommate brought home Lucky # Slevin. worth my time? worth my time....ON WEED?

grbchv! (gbx), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 00:49 (fifteen years ago) link

a good rule of thumb is to avoid any movie featuring josh hartnett.

fuck those movies!

deep space nine (deep space nine), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 01:13 (fifteen years ago) link

tho i'd probably take them over anything he's done post '99

deep space nine (deep space nine), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 01:14 (fifteen years ago) link

i'd take those movies over the da vinci code. which no one should ever have to watch. don't even start watching it and start ffwding and stopping and ffwding again to the main ian mckellan bit, which is okay b/c of him, and then ffwding again because there is nothing to ffwd to. i think it contributed to my crappy do-nothing mood of last week.

saw some good shorts at resfest on friday though (these were them - the thing about shorts is that even if they're great, they're not exactly well-advertised or well-distributed :( i guess youtube is helping though.

impermanent rrrobyn (rrrobyn), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 01:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Amelie was pretty hot whilst threatening the albino, the only not-bad thing about it aside from McKellen.

But even the movie isn't as bad as the newish pre-movie commercials they're running where Ron Howard talks about all the deep, hidden symbols they introduced into the movie, illustrated by random flashes of gold accent. Apparently one of the airline logos was meant to help you unlock the mystery of Mary's cooch.

milo (milo), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 01:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Slevin is not beyond awful but it was not good either. imo.

I'll give you Nelson, jmc, but the pool scene in Little Children was the last straw on that one.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 02:12 (fifteen years ago) link

The pool scene was masterful.

jaymc (jaymc), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 06:24 (fifteen years ago) link

When it was a shark instead of a sex pervert and it wasn't a pool at all but a beach on Amity Island, maybe.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 06:46 (fifteen years ago) link

Having finished the other half of Nelson, my take on it miraculously didn't change from before. Who says piecemeal viewing distorts one's impression?

Eric H. (Eric H.), Tuesday, 28 November 2006 08:41 (fifteen years ago) link

Too bad Gosling's long-"deserved" hype had to wait for a condescending liberal b.s. vehicle to be birthed (I'll stick with the Jewish Nazi movie & The Slaughter Rule).

I wanted to see John, the superprivileged super-snooty guy in that group of three, but he refused to show. He probably realized how badly he was coming across compared to the realer real lives of the others. I hope he shows up in 35-42-49.

He does, but [VAGUE SPOILER] he's kind of an opportunist about it.

The Sacrifice doesn't add up (I had some complicated theory about why the guy had to act anyway even if not necessary.. eh.. probably overthinking) but has a few nice set pieces.. the documentary about the making-of is neat b/c the burning house at the end didn't work on the first take and they only had one more chance to get it right. Stalker is far better but damn, does it go on and on and on..
