^ ah and spanish subs. Thanks eddie Laughing
Not a good decision, Jagger
I'd rather be an actor in an Herzog film than record a Rolling Stones album Razz


Did I read somewhere something about Fitzcarraldo, bees and Jagger's crotch? Suspect alien

I need to see more Herzog too.

So far, I have seen:

Nosferatu the Vampyre
Woyzeck
Fitzcarraldo
Rescue Dawn
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
My Best Fiend
Grizzly Man
Encounters at the End of the World
On Death Row

... All I have enjoyed. I might have to track a few more down.

I really like Jason Robards, but for the quality of 'Fitzarraldo' it is lucky he got ill, therefore leading to stopping filming with Jagger.... 'My Best Fiend' shows a comparison of the two seperate films that shows how much better Kinski's version was.

A funny clip of Herzog being shot but not being particulary bothered about it

He knew the risks. bounce

I remember that lots of the kids in my neighborhood had air rifles (there were no laws regulating purchase or ownership).

Parents used to tell the boys to be careful not to hit anyone in the eye. pirat

I just saw Dark Shadows starring Woo, or Johnny Depp.

Johnny and Helena play the characters they played in Sweeny Todd, but without singing:



The film also pays homage to The Adams Family and The Munsters:



The ending seems to set it up for a sequel, but I don't think that would be the best use of Tim Burton's time.

I just saw Hysteria, a very informative film about the invention of the electromechanical vibrator (one of the earliest electrical appliances to be mass marketed in the 19th century).

All the women in the theater seemed thoroughly delighted during the film.

And I think the men learned a great deal. Shocked Embarassed Razz

I just saw a very informative film about Abraham Lincoln directed by a Kazakh--Timur Bekmambetov.

History tells us that Lincoln was very good with an axe:




But history neglected to tell us what all he did with it:




The film is dead serious--no tongue in cheek. The message seems to be that being Lincoln was much harder than we care to imagine:




I wonder if there will be any more films with Lincoln as an action hero vampire slayer?



One reviewer said that he always knew that Mrs. Lincoln was nutty in her latter years, but that now he understands how she got that way.

I think that I like the Lincoln movie because the author of the original book seems to work the same way that I write screenplays, which is to say, he sticks to the facts.

Like me, he has connected the dots and filled in some of the details that were left out of the historical record, but these additional events and details are actually quite obvious if one diligently collects all of the known facts and examines them closely. study

This is in contrast to many successful screenwriters nowadays who just fabricate nonsensical events that never actually happened. bounce

Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, and Edward Norton all did good.

And the kids were OK, too, for kids.

Just saw Prometheus.

It needed better exposition and less FX:




Nice shots of Iceland at the beginning:

Hadn't seen it before... pity I didn't catch it from the beginning, very good.
Did it get widely known in England?

The latest Batman movie got a great review in the Washington Post, so I was expecting it to be much better than it was.

For some reason--even with all his high-tech gadgets--batman always insists on fighting the super villains hand-to-hand:

I didn't see the others either, but in order to understand the vengeful behavior of the villians, you have to know that in the first film batman killed Liam Neeson:

Hope Springs, starring Meryl and Tommy Lee.

It's about a problem that is afflicting baby boomers more and more as time goes on.

There are many cringe-worthy scenes

Beasts of the Southern Wild

I liked this one better--although it's "message" was a bit flakey.

I just saw this one--about a writer who makes up a girl for a book he's writing, and then she comes to life. The screenplay was written by the girl that plays the lead.

The problem is that after she comes to life, he keeps doing rewrites and screws everything up.

The author tacked a happy ending on--but it's not a perfect fit to the rest of the story.

The better to be pedantic on the innernet, I've been catching up on the features at the local art houses. geek

So I just saw "Les adieux a la reine"

Marie Antoinette is played by a German, which might be sort of right (although the ethnicity of those Habsburgian Austro-Hungarian Alsace-Lorrainians is a bit confusing).

The movie is very interesting and possibly even educational, but the characters are mostly not very likeable.

The protagonist is a servant, who tends to have a sullen attitude:



The most likeable character is Jacob Nicolas Moreau, the King's archivist:

Did I mention that I just saw The Robot and Frank?

I can relate--I bet Eddie would also, it has library closures:
