That Film You Slept Through Lately, What Was It?

Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast

After fighting with the cat to move from in front of my computer screen, I settled down to watch this yesterday afternoon. It's a good rendition of the story, but I think Fairy Tale Theater so ripped this version for their hour show. It was black and white, subtitled (it was in FRENCH), and very good. I enjoyed the moving heads in the fire place (the statues were alive).

Unfaithful

The one thing I don't get in Unfaithful...

spoiler (highlight to read):
How on earth did the husband manage to kill the lover with a snowglobe and NOT break the glass?

Analyze That
Analyze This
A Knight Tale
Passion of the Christ
Vertigo

For the record, A Knight's Tale sucked. The plot was weak and the music they were playing didn't fit the movie at all. It just annoyed the hell out of me. Vertigo is still one of my favorite films. And Passion of the Christ is still an alright movie but forget the movie 'cause Mel Gibson is CRAZY!

And surprisingly, the Analyze movies were actually funny. Especially watching Robert DeNiro sing songs from West Side Story.
Peace.

A Knight's Tale was attempting to do something different. I enjoyed that movie a lot.

Shopgirl
How this is a comedy I'm not sure, but it makes for an EXCELLENT drama/love story. Totally worth watching it because it keeps you on the edge. When I talk to the screen (i.e. asking a character "What's wrong?"), it's a good movie. Intense and emotional. Steve Martin is brilliant.

Truth. I love european culture and Knights and what have you, but A Knights Tale left me a little dry. And yes the music was way out of place.

I also watched Memoirs of a Geisha recently. Honestly, it was awful and the "hey look most americans are to stupid to tell the differnece" Asian cast was kind of insulting. For a movie set in japan, the cast itselft wasn't. I think there was a total of what 3 japanese actors. I mean yeah Zhang Ziyi is obviously a Japanese name.

While I agree with you on the Knight's Tale front, is that why you thought "Memoirs" sucked? Because basically the cast members were from every part of Asia, except Japan?

I'm just curious is all.

Also I forgot but I also saw Hook. Is it bad? Yeah, pretty much. But I have to be one of the last standing that enjoys this movie.

And I'll keep standing for it.
Peace.

QFT.

Some movies seriously should carry a small sticker that asks "PLEASE REMOVE STICK FROM ANUS BEFORE WATCHING".

No but it's a big reason. I thought the actting was weak, boring, and like I said, it really insults your Intelligence. Oh and for the record, the book was weak as well.

2001: A Space Odyessy
Downfall
Inside Man

With only like 40 minutes of dialogue, 2001 kicked ass and is really great filmmaking. I can't get enough of the ending and of that weird as you know what Jupiter, space and beyond sequence. Kurbrick, ftw.

Downfall is one of the best movies I've seen in a while. Its about the last 10 days of the Third Reich during WWII and Bruno Ganz KILLS it as Adolf Hitler. Where the hell was his Oscar?! And also there's this one girl who played the lead, Alexandra Maria Lara, that looks exactly like Natalie Portman (a tad older probably not nothing to noticeable). In fact, Lara is what Portman would be... if she was only able to act. Amazing movie and so many suicides left and right, you will lose count.

Also, Inside Man was alright. Look to see how the robbers planned everything at the end although it predictable at a point. It had a very cool Lupin feel to it too, which I was feeling. And oh, Jodie Foster looked good. Big Grin
Peace.

Inside Man: Ummm. yeah, this movie was ok for the most part but one has to wonder if Spike Lee is really that good of a writer when he simply uses the "f-word" everyother word.

Metalocalypse: It's nice too see that someone at AS has good taste in music. This is a fun show, with great music.

"Now I'm gonna hit myself with road flares." Hobgoblins is one of the best Mike era episodes.

I still can't decide whether I prefered "Manos: Hands of Fate" to it. Its really hard to beat a movie where Mike and the bots run out of things to say and wind up repeating the title.

Off topic thought: Can anyone imagine Tom or Crow as a Megadeus?

Funny thing is I just got done watching that episode. Mano's is spanish for hands so the movie is really called Hands: hands of fate. It's a classic because they had to dub the voices as it was shot on a camera that had no sound.
