I think the subject is pretty self-explanatory. Since there's one of these for songs, I thought I would take the initiative - grab the bull by the nuts, so to speak - and do a seperate one for movies. It can be something you saw at the cinema, something you really like, or, as in my case, whatever you rented recently. Here's a list of what I got this week:

Snake Eyes - Nicolas Cage, Gary Sinise
Jackie Brown - Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson
House on Haunted Hill - Geoffrey Rush, Famke Jannsen
The Haunting - Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones
Stir of Echoes - Kevin Bacon
Zoolander - Ben Stiller
Down Periscope - Kelsey Grammer
High Society - Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra
Take Me Out to the Ball Game - Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly
Oedo 808: Virtual Death --\
Oedo 808: Psychic Trooper - Anime
Oedo 808: Blood Lust -----/
Royal Space Force - Anime

the best to crank and listen to
while surfing in the dark
and haunting the forums on.

I remembered this one just now:

Schindlers List.

Was that a brilliant film or was that a brilliant film?

Isis Kaldara
08-23-2002, 08:13 AM
I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. Brilliant, but the fact that my Social Studies teacher fastforwarded through all the good scenes, like the little girl in red, made it bite.

08-23-2002, 09:18 AM
Why not hire it out?

Darth Eggplant

if you liked Schindlers List.
then you would like
Varians War
with William Hurt.

William Hurt plays american
Varian who under the assistance
and support of Elanor Roosevelt
and the intellectual crowd
raise money so he could go to
occupied france and save as many
of the great painters, poets,
writers and musicians that they
could from being taken out by
the Natzi's. One of the famous
ones they saved was Marc Chegal.
The movie featured one of his trips
I believe he made a couple.

the movie is great cause he
is not a soldier or a spy
and yet he acts so bumbling
that no one but the underground
resistance takes him serious
and he gets away with it.

great movie but one of those
made straight for HBO or video types
so almost no one has ever seen or heard
of it.

*a different type of movie
but a fav of mine;
Haunted Summer
it is about Shelly and Byron
hanging out together in 1816
or whatever the date was
and it was about the contest
which Mary Shelly penned

being an ex-photolab tech,
and still having friends
in the industry,
we all can not wait to go see
1 HOUR PHOTO next friday.

all I can say is I wish I had stock
in Digital Cameras cause if this film
freaks people like I think it will,
loads of folk are going to buy digital
cameras for X-mas and the holiday season.

we as a group of lab people are
most likely going to book a movie
vip room, cause we will be way to
rowdy watching this flick.

anyhow think of me,
creepy as it sounds
and the character
Robin Williams is playing
won't seem so far fetched.;)

Blade Runner which version
do you prefer?

09-08-2002, 02:24 PM
Directors' cut, blade runner. old music...new moulin rouge almost made me believe in love...almost.

this friday the media is saying
'Red Dragon' is the first chapter
in the Hannibal Lector story,
but another movie called
was made years ago,
and it had a different actor
but he played hannibal long before
Anthony Hopkins immortalized the role.
this movie is playing on
the movie network this month
and they are saying it is
the first chapter in hannibal's saga.
I am not so familiar with the author
who wrote the stories,
if anyone out there is,
please help set the record straight.

Harry Potter
and the Chamber of Secrets
is out in the UK very soon.
in mid November here in Canada,
I can't wait to see it.

*I am aware I might get abuse
and flack over such a statement
but what can I tell you,
I am a JK Rowling fan.
I am anxiously waiting
for Book 5
and the movie.

abuse already

I knew It would come,
if it helps any I also
go to the official Harry Potter
website, I enrolled at Hogwarts
the sorting hat put me in Huffle Puff
my friends think that is
sad, wildly innacurate, and odd.

John Waters and Ed Wood
get special mention.


also no mention of George Lucas
on a Lucas forum (gasp!) :)
what about John Hughes?
and what about famous japenese guy
Fuakawa or something?

10-05-2002, 04:29 AM
John Hughs? Sure a few good films but he's basically the entire impact on all those crap teen movies we see these days.

George Lucas? I'm not gonna diss him on his company's forum. But he's just another Hollywood guy. Very Speilberg. All money and no creativity. THK 31 was cool though.

I've never heard of Fuakawa

Now tell me your problem with Shyamalan, Nolan, and especially Tykwer. Maybe some don't understand Tykwer, but Nolan? Watch Memento. As for Shyamalan, he is the present Hitch****, and as well very original.

Now I am not judging your opinion, just please explain what you don't like about these directors. I'll get a better understanding.

10-05-2002, 02:48 PM
Kind of ambivalous on the subject myself, but I do agree with what you say about George Lucas. Go ahead and diss him all you want, this website has nothing to do with his company as far as I know.
