    This isn't a movie it's a 14 y/o boy's wet dream.

    Um... ok.

    So instead of saying that you think the movie doesn't look like your cup of tea, you decide to portray anyone who's taste in movies differs from yours as immature?

    That's a sophisticated, adult viewpoint if I've ever seen one.

    Now then, tell me a movie that you are interested in seeing. So that I can fling a sloppily written, underhanded insult in your direction...

    Casino Royale. Not because I like Bond films (although they are cheesy fun.)

    The reason is I like Daniel Craig. This guy is very, very stylish, in my opinion. Anyone seen Layer Cake?

    He is pretty brave but generally pulls it off.

    I make no pretensions about my maturity level and, as you probably already know, the comment was mostly in jest.

    Still, judging from the trailer, you gotta admit this movie is aimed at the teen boy in you (or me if I ever decide to check it out, doesn't seem like my cup of tea but you never know...). Heroic speeches, video clip editing, badasses with piercings and mean, caricatural looks, evil lesbians, big rock music blaring, based on a comic book, over the top violence, characters speaking in "quotes", etc.

    BTW here are the next 15 movies on my ziplist (online rental), I'm sure there's plenty of material to fling an insult in my direction, feel free to indulge:


    C.R.A.Z.Y. (Crazy) NR



    Kings and Queen NR



    Hoop Dreams (Criterion) NR



    Lady From Shanghai E



    Buffet Froid NR



    Ranma 1/2: OAV Series Disc 2 NR



    Stavisky



    Lawrence Of Arabia (Special Edition) PG



    The Decalogue Disc 1 14



    Big Heat, The 18



    The Hunger R



    Farewell My Lovely



    The Narrow Margin NR



    Ranma 1/2: OAV Series Disc 3 NR



    D.O.A. (1950) PG

    Yeah, I'm a fan of Daniel Craig, thus far. I think he plays it too cool at times, such as Layer Cake, but I liked the movie. Then again, we saw Kung Fu Hustle just beforehand, so in comparison Layer Cake felt like Shakespeare.

    Saw the trailer for A Nightmare Before Christmas 3D last night before the Departed. Can't wait for that, I don't think that I have ever seen a 3D movie before, and A Nightmare Before Christmas seems like the perfect movie to see it in.

    I was in a snarky mood when I wrote that scathing retort. But I figured you were sort-of kidding. Thus the smile at the end of my post. I was mostly-serious, which is a close relative.

    Sounds like just another day in the life of Tokyo Slim to me... but maybe you just live a boring life.


    RACIST!!!

    Just kidding. Its really long, but good.


    Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, and a young(er) Susan Sarandon as Vampires! You and I will now be the only two people to ever see this movie. I rented it in HS. (coincidentally, from the video store that J used to work at, but it was before I knew him)

    Saw it. I don't remember it very well (except, of course, for "that scene"), but I do remember being kind of underwhelmed (except, of course, for "that scene"). On the other hand, an argument can be made that it had a hand in paving the way vampires are often depicted today (club going, vaguely Euro dressing, techno dancing, etc.).

    Yeah I really like Laurence of Arabia, in fact I like it so much I want to make sure the rental company has access to it in case their disc breaks so I'm going to do a backup of the movie, free of charge, and keep it home. That way if their warehouse burns they won't have lost everything. I'm such a nice guy I'm sure Valenti would be proud of me.

    anybody know anything about the Idi Amin movie with Forrest Whittaker? "The Last King of Scotland" or something. I saw an ad in the paper. Too lazy to look for a trailer.

    Just saw the Departed. An immolation of fine acting, confusion, violence, profanity, and gore. Rating: four aspirins.

    Last night - me, the mrs, our exchange student, and his date. Decision time: The Departed, or Man of the Year? We went with Man of the Year (I hate getting out-voted).

    Man of the Year was surprisingly good, although the writing got sloppy at times. RW seemed to ad-lib and prove that he was still funny (very funny in places). We all liked it, but are still looking forward to the Departed.

    Also - The Good Shepherd. Anxiously awaiting.

    Hi Thomas,

    I'll be interested to hear your opinion, of The Departed. A byzantine profusion of profanity, incomprehensible plot twists and murder, presented with an air of 'scumbag entitlement.' If you see the movie, perhaps you can tell me what it's about.


    I'm waiting now, to see Marie Antoinette.[​IMG]

    The entrance of Deneuve, and Bowie in sunglasses, and Alaia leather couture with Bauhaus playing was one of the chicest begininngs of any film.

    I'll glad to holler as soon as I see it.
    Thank God Borat doesn't drop until November. It opened in Iceland already and our student's friends have all seen it. He is bummed out by this and wants to see it forthwith.
