    Come, come, Mr. Bond, you derive as much pleasure from killing as I do.

    The serialised TV version has bit more in it.

    Ex Machina obviously Asimov's three laws were ignored in the making of this film. Manipulative bitch, women can't trust them can you . Does it prove consciousness will seek to survive, no matter what the cost to other life?

    And the Singularity thought that horse had been flogged to death ages ago. Aside from that not a bad film 3/5, however too much moral ambiguity for my taste.

    In her own words, from the documentary on the DVD:

    You know, the Marnie character... is totally against all men; she screams if one of them comes near her. I don't care how much of a man hater you are, how negatively you feel about men, you take one look at Sean Connery and I mean... Oh, come on Hitch, how am I going to do this part?

    Hitchcock's reply?

    It's called acting, my dear.

    Hilarious. And she is just an average actress.

    But she wears some quite nice outfits from the legendary Edith Head; so often used by Hitchcock. Elegant, stylish and contemporary.

    The Breakfast Club - John Hughes (1985)

    [​IMG]


    It took me 30 years to see this, and I understand why. It's oldfashion both in the story and the filming. The camera is like a reminiscence from the 70-ties, without any interesting pictures and all the camerawork is made in sleep. The manuscript is unbelievable, and lacks both sting and humor. The characters are cliches and not people; no youth or grown ups behave like that. For a minute, some place in there, I thought maybe this is the 80-ies answer to the 50-ies 'Rebel without a cause', but it isn't. It's most of all a flirtation with some prejudices that juveniles have about life.

    understood… but…


    This. :nodding: At one point during the late elementary/early jr. high years, my cousin and I had whole scenes of dialogue memorized…. "I don't think I need to sit with you fucking dildos anymore!"
    "Is that CLEAR Bender?!"
    "Crystal... sir."

    (and no it was not the 80's :happy: … I'm younger)

    Last night on cable haven't seen it in years Al Pacino at his best in a 1970's police drama about entrenched police corruption in NYC and an honest mans crusade against it. The clothes alone at times are incredible, a great film 5/5

    Honest cop finds out every body is on the take then undertakes prolonged futile departmental drive for corruption to be investigated, Finally goes to NYT and shit hits the fan. In between leads an unconventional life as undercover cop living in Greenwich Village in the late 60's and early 70's.

    I'm pretty sure if my teenage daughter and her friends were to watch Rebel Without A Cause they'd find the dialogue, cinematography, and wardrobe absurdly dated and the characters unbelievable. Jim Stark's just as much of a cliche as John Bender -- pretty much the same cliche as Prince of Denmark kid.

    I hated that movie from when I first watched it. The students are all shit people, the principal is a shit person, the janitor is shit. The world would have been a better place if they all got killed by meteorites. The whole time I was wishing they would be invaded by Russians - Red Dawn style - and all lined up against the wall and shot to death. Garbage human beings.

    Regarding teenage cult movies, I liked neither The Breakfast Club nor Rebel without a Cause.

    I think I liked American Graffiti and Ferris Bueller's Day Off better.

    But I haven't seen any of them in a while, and I tend to avoid those sort of films.

    I did see Serpico a few months ago - it is really good. Might have mentioned it in this thread. Prince of the City is a similar film (takes place around the same time as Serpico and is also directed by Lumet), but the main character is a dirty cop.
