My favorite too. Maybe Badlands is good; I think I have watched it years ago but am not sure.

Although I like Terence Malick, I think this one went too far with experimentation and improvisation, to the point I found it hard to follow.
Also, although the cinematographer is one of the best, I think the camera was moving too much.

This felt like a parody of Malick tropes, like a really well made SNL skit. Some of the best cinematography I've seen in a while, though, and still more watchable than To The Wonder.

I never understood the hate for The New World. I've seen it many times and find it to be one of the most beautiful, tragic, and immersive movies I can think of. Severely underrated, and on par with Badlands and Days of Heaven.

For Malick films, I prefer early David Gordon Green...

Belatedly joined Netflix, in search of something to watch on the iPad while at home and feeling rotten with the flu, and watched this:

 

 

 

Surprisingly enjoyable and suitably escapist. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that any sequels are on the horizon, as I wouldn't mind seeing the characters again.

That's a real StyFoflick with all the suits and shades and whatnot :P

In other news...saison deux, debuted today smile.gif

Friday night bucketing down with no rugby (sigh) on so Mrs GF picked this and Indian takeaway which was washed down with a six pack of Corona.Should cross post to WDYELNFD.



Must be over 25 years since I've seen it. Think one reason is that a former Mrs GF bore a stunning resemblance to Susan Sarandon the Bond's singlet and levi's and that hair.

Great Ridley Scott film take on the road movie with strong performances from the leads and great supporting cast, Harvey Keitel, Michael Marsden and Brad Pitt amongst them.

Still think the ending sucks.

Nice. Classic flick. The end was so controversial at the time. Also Sarandon was smokin when she was younger so..well done. Lol

Brad Pitts first big IIRC

I agree nikos, knight of cups is a little out there and too try hard imo.

So many good shows on lately...night of was great. Stranger things awesome (only show I've binged ever from Netflix) im onto the killing right now great half way through the first season.

The American version of the Killing? I thought the whole first story arc (two seasons?) was really excellent; the rest wasn't bad as well.

I remember at 14 getting a lecture from my neighbor's father on the vast irresponsibility of Hollywood after he walked in catching the end of Thelma and Louise, much to her continued mortification.

what's wrong with the end of Thelma and Louise?  

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
they fly into a giant vagina!

it's not about the narrative.

post #13980 of 14436


Predictable and cliched, but the acting and directing were solid. I don't regret watching it. Shame the Cannes booing rumor doomed it from the start.
