One other cool note that you likely missed is the jazz club in the film, The Greenmill, is quite famous, even having it's own Wikipedia page.

Oh, that club seems pretty important historically and culturally, so yeah, I understand. Thanks for mentioning this, always cool to know these things.

GaijinPunch funfactoid: had an internet date there when I was new to Chicago. Chick was only 45 minutes late. It didn't really go too far, but she was pretty cool. Didn't really date guys, but did inflict pain on them for a living. So, it was a breath of fresh air from the other boring shit on Tinder.

Glad to see people enjoying Miracle Mile, an all time favorite of mine which I saw back in elementary school. A friend's mom rented it for us and we figured it was just another action movie :lol:

I probably recommend this every time I post in this thread, but since we're on the Tangerine Dream wagon, go check out Near Dark.

Breakfast at Tiffany's - I'd be lying if I said nearly ever word that came from Hepburn's lips weren't mesmerizing. Besides the hilariously racist character, and without having seen any of her other movies, I can still say I understand why this is the most famous of her movies. I'm not sure I've seen an actress deliver lines so direct and with as much character as Ms Golightly did in this classic. If you replaced Hepburn with Monroe (originally sought after for the role) and took out the song Moon River, this film would have been likely turned into complete garbage. Instead we have one of the most recognized films of all time.

Near Dark is pretty rad. Watched that again last year in memory of good ol' Paxton; he really steals the show in it.

If you liked Breakfast, check out Roman Holiday. I think that's her best.

e.


Not sure if it's authentic, but the top review on the amazon page is interesting. :)

Oh, it's definitely him. He's active on Facebook.

Friedkin also used to have a review up for the Sorcerer DVD and how it was butchered and a different restoration than the Bluray.

Yeah I've seen most of their stuff now. I binged the Key & Peele sketches a while back and have seen a few of them multiple times. Lil Homie, Negrotown, Continental Breakfast, zombies that won't eat black people - those guys are great. :)

God help any person I meet named Jacqueline, Blake, Denise, or Aaron.

If you like them, perhaps Children's Hospital is worth checking out. Hilarious, and Jordan Peele has a recurring role around season 2 (or 3). They are short and sweet.

Straight Time (1978)

I feel like we all got our periods synched up! Upon the feedback here, I loaded this one up. Can't really add too much to what has been said. Honestly had never heard of it before this thread. Hoffman's performance obviously good, but catching Gary Busey (and his son) pre train wreck was quite a sight. Kathy Bates as well... has she ever had a good hair cut?

It made me want to be in LA in the late 70's... not only for all sorts of aesthetically cool shit but the amazingly cheap food.

Son of Frankenstein (1939)
Wow, I read everywhere this movie was the best sequel the original movie had, and that it could stand on his own just fine, and I agree! Great scenario backgrounds, similar to the German Expressionism style of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari", and amazing performances by that outstanding trio that is Lugosi, Karloff and Rathbone.
I see this is where "Young Frankenstein" got the inspector with the weird artificial arm and silly mannerisms. :)
Fun fact, the little kid who played Rathbone's son provided the voice for Bambi.

Glad you liked it, it's not the sort of film to hit you over the head wth anything amazing but it has a rhythm that sort if absorbs you. It really does put you in late 70's America.

One other thing, I love the scene where
Spoiler: show
Harry Dean and Hoffman are giggling crossing the road after the bank job. I think I would be giggling too. Busey is good, but maybe he was cast as type. I mean, the guy is a fuck up these days. Plus M Emmet Walsh chained to a fence. This recent watch I only realised that he was probably just driving Hoffman around to get information rather than releasing him.


As for the Thief OST, I really like listening to it but in the film it doesn't really work. The break in is pretty good from what I remember, but "beach scene" is awful.

Northwest Passage: A Twin Peaks Fanedit
Not that the Black Lodge stuff is crap, but this is a quite nice fanedit that turns the Laura Palmer mystery into a 4+ hour movie spread over 2 parts. Good editing and some folks are pretty much completely gone if they don't really serve a purpose in the actual mystery, but its nicely done. No filler is quite nice, but a couple of the edit points could be done better, though I recommend it still.

This sounds pretty good, actually... I do like the original series but I find rewatching a bit tough. I am going through the return for the second time now though.

Saw Black Panther. Was pretty okay, but had a few glaring flaws.

Spoiler: show
like, did I miss something, or was Black Panther basically just invincible the entire movie, except during the two fights for the throne [where he doesn't have his powers or suit] and the final fight against Killmonger [where they cancel the suit's effects]? Even if he wasn't, the movie didn't even seem to try to make it seem like there was any credible threat to him.

there were other issues [in particular, Marvel still has no idea how to film a hand-to-hand fight, an issue so glaring that my sixty year old mother noticed it on her own], but I can't be arsed to list them

I saw Black Panther too. 3/5

I liked the Korea showdown the most. That bald chick and the guy in the gorilla mask in Wakanda was the characters I enjoyed the most. The guy from Get Out felt like a bad casting for such a beta male role.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) - Rian Johnson

Well God Almighty!
You live long enough, you see some shit!

I guess this review is for Star Wars fans.

Take a deep breath. Take a step back. Exhale. Now, look again. This is not Star Wars.
Proceed

This is a horribly uninteresting film but I am not going to review it in that sense.

Forget the distractions - Disney - forced diversity - clashing director ego/visions - forced purging of the "Hero" - new beginning for and generation of, Star Wars fans (whatever the fuck that means)
and whatever other excuses are floated.

Up front, I will say that as with all Star Wars films, my main interest is whether or not it works as a Star Wars film.
Does the tale plumb the unconscious and bring back up to the surface the mythological characters that Lucas intended and achieved in the 1977 original? TLJ emphatically, does not.
It has no archetypal power and therefore has no soul. TLY and indeed, TFA, have that dreadful "no plan - make it up as you go along-ness".
Because of this, they scream that non-authentic meaninglessness of bad fiction.
The only way "Disney Star Wars" works, is in the way Kathleen Kennedy has always intended it to "work", that is to say, as a desecration of Star Wars.
Profit takes a back seat to this. If you have not copped onto that by now, I don't know what to tell you.

Anyway, onwards.
Just like any Star Trek fan would know a "non -Spock" line written for Spock, would not be something that Spock would ever say, every Star Wars fan knows that Luke does not kill apprentice children.

I predicted here, over year ago, that Luke would have to be debased . . . and so it is.
Spoiler: show
It was not enough to needlessly bring him back and have him die in front of us.

He had to be morally destroyed.

I would like to add here, that Mark Hamill, like George Lucas, got precisely what he deserved. As their ilk is so fond of saying "actions have consequences".
Yes Mark, they do and yours have led to a path of you having to play Luke "fiercely" drinking alien tit milk, forsaking his friends and assassinating children.
"Disney Star Wars", is part of the world you helped create, Mark.
Kathleen Kennedy is only getting started with the prostate pounding, so stop your half-arsed public protests and let "The Force Is Female" Queen-bitch, purge Male Hero's and saviours from the Stars Wars universe, à la TLJ.

In the end Kathleen Kennedy will of course, fail.
Why? If you consider that there has only ever been one Star Wars, the 1977 epic, you will perhaps understand why Kennedy could never win.
To quote "King Beowulf"; "Do you know why you can not kill me, my friend? Because I died many, many years ago. When I was young."

If any Star Wars fan needs to know where the 1977 story arc inevitable would lead if Lucas had the heart and the talent, watch this clip from the much maligned Beowulf (2007) - Robert Zemeckis.
The more observant should also recognise the debasement that seems to inevitably befall Luke, in King Beowulf's musings at the beginning of the clip.
Pay attention also to "the challenger".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0fFI0ziCs8 This clip is superior to and more "Star Wars" than, everything since the original.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) - Rian Johnson
I'm trying to imagine, if this pounding to pulp of the Hero, Gender, and Myth that kids today are being fed takes root, what a sad world we will have.

Holy shit, I just realized what's been going on ever since Zen got into posting unnecessary reaction gifs and peppering his posts with obscure references for the sake of referencing.

He's channeling Dennis Miller.

Bap-bap-bap!

Huh... Oh well.

Star Wars The Last Jedi (2017)
Some subplots were absolutely unnecessary, and only to extend the bloody LONG length of the movie. Maybe I'm dumb, but I felt that some things didn't make any sense at all, and many more were left unexplained. Daisy Ridley is a very weak actress, and Kylo Ren is STILL a teenager in a grown man's body. The Resistance spent the whole movie in a grim, slow death, at least until the end, fucking Christ. :(
I loved the fact they didn't use CG for a certain character that appeared shortly, you know who. :wink:
Don't know what to expect for the third movie, but I can honestly say that so far, despite it's many flaws, these sequels aren't faring as bad as the prequels.

That's why I think Thor: Ragnarok had the right idea.

Take these indestructible characters and instead of putting them in some sort of dark, gritty, serious story, put them in a live action looney tunes cartoon.

Also holy shit is Tessa Thompson hot in that movie.

I was not aware they've got a 4th trilogy planned, meaning there's still at least five Star Wars franchise movies coming.

Hey man, different strokes for different folks.

I was into Tessa Thompson in that movie. You were into Jeff Goldblum.

It's all cool!

Just saw Annihilation. Literally the only bad thing about the movie was the generic af title. I hope the director (whose name escapes me) continues to make great movies. I'd love to see him expand upon the Annihilation universe, but I won't count on it.

I gotta say though, he really loves those intense moments and loud af heavy music. I honestly can't recommend this movie enough.

Very lovely colours, great acting from Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman, and a great story too.

He directed Dredd and Ex Machina too. The latter was a much better Terminator prequel than whatever the hell Genisys was supposed to be.
