Re: Spike Lee Attacks Hollywood

Well, this is a loooong thread, but I like it and I'm a postin' in. Lessee . . .

Yeah, sure. "People who look different"=diversity=quality. Look! There's one with slanted eyes! And over, there,...

Re: New 007: "Guys, give me a chance!"

Of course it may all look different in the movie, BUT --

No matter how tailored his tux or close his shave, Craig to me has this ineradicable look of a soccer hooligan. In every still, the guy...

Re: Trailer and Synopsis for Scorsese's "The Departed"

Marty's a yawner. Rent the DVD and watch it while you're ironing clothes or playing Scrabble.

Re: Pirates of the Carribean 2

Well, that makes sense. I often go to the movies just to get out of the house, but I agree it also makes sense to shell out money on things you like.

Didn't you see a huge difference, though,...

Re: Pirates of the Carribean 2

Yes. Read my post. I go to a movie once a week no matter what. (I planned all along to see this movie regardless of the reviews.) I thought the bad ones were justified. I slept through parts of POTC2...

Re: Babel

It looks sort of like Crash international, which isn't a compliment. I'll probably go see it anyway. I'm a sucker for international settings.

Re: Pirates of the Carribean 2

Well, ylekot43 is in a minority of two, at any rate.

I agree that this crummy movie fell back on the goodwill of the first. If it had come on its own -- even if the plot were rejiggered so it could...

Re: Full trailer of Darren Aronofosky's 'The Fountain'

"Take this ring. It is a symbol of your pledge to find the Elixir of Immortality."

Narrator intones:

Re: Dracula as Hero?

Revisionism -- yet another way to endlessly milk an oft-filmed story. It goes to show how a society's morals are undercut by certain of its own elements -- in this case the "entertainment" industry.

Re: A$$hole!: How I Got Rich by not giving a F@#$!

I like it.

If it's well executed, there will be tons of hilarious gotchas with an utterly predictable character arc. Chicken soup -- spiked.

Re: The use of "DIARIES" as a device in films?

Hi, indie

To answer your original question, The Bridges of Madison County. Sadly, I can barely think of a film where a diary was a successful dramatic device.

But your scene sounds kind of...

Re: Hollywood BO vs. Middle East

Hollywood films do indeed get tons of play in the Middle East, but most of it is through piracy.

Re: Boondock II: All Saint's Day

I'm another one who can't get enough of Troy Duffy's story. If I knew where he hung out I'd probably sneak in and stare at him a little bit.

Anyway, Boondock II is now off imdb, and Troy Duffy's...

Re: Interesting Spec Script Sale

Groan, this is so been-there-done-that, but if it MUST be made . . .

Re: good nite & good luck

This has been fun.

First, I said Clooney is an intellectual drop-out, not a college drop-out. There's a difference.

Second, what is "controversial" about this film? Is there some controversy as...

Re: good nite & good luck

That quote illustrates that he lacks 1) intellectual rigor and 2) facts. However, he seems to have found a place where none of this matters.

I don't support intellectual drop-outs or their...
