    well, my g/f got me to watch "a walk to remember" starring mandy moore last night and i couldn't get into the movie so i started commenting on the editing and film techniques that were good/bad... it was then that i realise that i don't look at movies the way i used to...

    Yeah film school ruined my tollerence for shitty movies. I can't watch something like that and not think "Now how would Kurosawa have shot that scene."

    though it wasn't the first movie to have a person's alter ego exist as another character, its certainly one of the more poignant...

    did anybody watch scrubs last night? they kinda did the same thing with brandon frasier as that doctor's brother... its a really cool effect...

    i enjoy bad movies, they're an art unto their own

    bad boys 2, or tomb raider for example

    they were bad, but they were deliberately bad

    which makes them good :)

    I reccemend "Gerry" to those who like camera work and/or minimal dialogue and just let the atmosphere of the surroundings capture them...Matt Damon/casey affleck have an great repore with one another(im sure they're friends) but that def. helps a script like this that requires believability to get the dialogue...there's one scene where damon tries to make a "sand blanket" so that affleck can jump off a high rock so he doesn't break his ankle...if you're patient it's well worth it:)

    Word. Going to the screening of Starsky & Hutch tomorrow.... I will let you know how it goes.

    Also is City of God out on DVD?

    I THINK it is actually...in the right places...could be wrong though, GOOGLE that shit!

    let me know about S & H...looks decent
     
  15. It was supposed to be out last week.

    Then Miramax decided with the Oscar nominations that it's going to be put back into the theatres. The DVD won't be out until at least June now.

    I'm still catching up on last year's Oscar nominees/winners...just saw The Hours and Frida...was bored by the former and felt like I missed the point, thought the latter was quite interesting and enjoyable. Was more impressed by Salma than Nicole.

    i've yet to see what the big deal is with Nicole Kidman.
     
  18. Dead Calm?
    Moulin Rouge? (an actor that can sing AND act AND dance is a rare thing these days)
    To Die For?
    Cold Mountain?

    dead Calm was a good flick, however, i don't really think she was all that good in it...Billy Zane was far more impressive...nod to Sam Neill too.

    Haven't seen TO DIE FOR...heard she was good in it.

    Don't care for Moulin Rouge or Cold Mountain...can't really handle Renee Zellweger either.

    One thing i did see her in a long time ago was BANGKOK HILTON...she was decent in that.

    But this current 'OMG NICOLE KIDMAN' craze is way overhyped.
     
  20. I'll go with that.

    i think its hard to see how good an actor she is because her facial features are so flawless/doll-like... i almost think she'd get more recognition if she was less attractive...

    to die for = excellent.

    but there was a little aussie flick that was really good, too... one where she plays a russian mail order bride... i forget the name... she really stood out for me there.

    also, "the others"...
     
  22. Birthday Girl. And it was British :)

    what do you guys think of the new Dawn of the Dead? looks like a horror movie I might actually want to see.

    pros
    sarah polley - surprised to see her in it. not her typical fair.
    promising trailer - nice shots, good music http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/dawnofthedead/

    cons
    first time director (Zack Snyder)
    screenwriter james gunn - most notable scripts are Scooby-Doo 1 & 2

    it has a '28 days later' vibe to it. afterall it is a zombie movie. Will be fun to try to spot the locations as it was shot all over ontario, in Ashbridge's Bay, Toronto, brampton, caledon, and thornhill. hopefully they can pull it off.
     
  25. Zack walked away from S.W.A.T. when he was told he'd have to stay within a PG-13 guideline, saying that he wanted a darker, grittier and nastier feel to the movie, and not quite what we saw last summer.

    He fought tooth and nail to keep all the gore and nastiness on the screen and keeping the product endorsements on board (despite having their logos plastered in blood in some shots). I think that's a pretty encouraging sign :)
