Sht, the kid was a good actor. But you could do anything with that story, put in a trained dog, a hot grampa trophy wife. The theme does lend itself to endlessly funny public scenarios. He could travel in an RV across America.

 

It was never as good as Borat(ever) but had a chance to be, that's why I rated it so low. It made $142 million, so what do I know?

 

Borat coast em $18 million to make and grossed $261 million.

wow that is one  heck of a movie xD good for both of them... sheesh!

3 Women (1977) - 9

 

Willie, Millie, Pinky.
Willie is asocial and bitter, a misterious woman who runs a bar where Millie and Pinky hang out with cops. She spends most of her time alienated in her intriguing and unsettling mural paintings which seem to fascinate Pinky. Willie is pregnant.
Millie is a fullfilled young woman working at an health spa for the elderly and living in a small apartment rented to Willie. She is extremelly confident of her attractiveness towards men and is strangely outgoing and communicative despite the fact that others severely neglect her.
Pinky resembles a teenager, she displays almost childlike naivety and impulsiveness. Admitted as a new worker in the spa, she develops a very strong affection for Millie as the older employee guides Pinky through her new job. Pinky willingly  becomes Millie's roommate.
The roles and relationships between these three women will undergo a metamorphosis as the events unravel and a final hierarchy will be reached. Reality will change as well, a certain degree of abnormality is visible in human relations. Hilarious, heartbreaking and disturbing social dichotomies coexist with all naturality, things that hardly fit within the frame of a real and concrete world. The absurdist aura omnipresent since the beginning intensifies until the movie truly assumes it's dreamy or surrealist nature that leaves us perplexed in the end. The thing is, the relationship between the three women is the reality of the film.
The naturalist and bleak landscape of a small desert city somewhere in California can either morph into a poeticaly beautifull window or into a raw and crude stage of a surreal psychological Thriller/Drama of great emotional power.
Top notch (in large part improvised!) interpretations from Shelley Duvall (the director's muse) and Sissy Spacek, as good as the brilliant camera, photography and sound work.
This fascinating and misterious movie was literaly born from a Robert Altman dream and it shows the talent of this great master of cinema.
A beautiful cult film, I think it deserves more attention.
I loved it and highly recommend it!

Tried Red ad headweb got a free coupon. Kind of annoying when I realize I seen it before. But I forgot so much it felt really fresh anyway I didn´t know what would happen... Gold fish memory is great sometimes :)

 

Really enjoyed it solid 8/10. Now Red 2 or 2guns?

I think this, Lynch's Mulholland Dr., and Bergman's Persona would make for an *excellent* triple feature.

Absolutely, those two movies came up to my mind after watching 3 Women.

I'm onto get some decent quality bluray rips of both, haven't seen them in a while and I miss them.

I, Frankenstein.  6/10.  If you're not a fan of the Underworld series, anticipate a rating of 4/10. Watched this flick on my lunch extended lunch break, and one needs to pretty much erase all ties to the Mary Shelly's book, or one will rant to no end on this Hollywood flick.  

 

First, IMO, Eckhart is too handsome and talented to play such a role and script, and Otto is too pretty to play a Gargoyle queen.  The role for Frankenstein should have gone to someone like Ron Perlman or even Mickey Rourke.  Who ever was in charge of the makeup for Eckhart should have been fired.

 

Second, during the preview I saw a film that I'm looking forward to watching, "Transcendence."

I've never been much of a racing fan - especially NASCAR - but I always love learning about the back stories of athletes and their rivalries. This film appears to have been based on true events and I found it very interesting and entertaining. Acting was solid and the racing scenes - although not as many as I anticipated - looked and sounded great. 

 

 

"Rush" - 8.3/10

I might have to look into that, I HATE Nascar, but I do enjoy the Eurpoean Racing Circuit, and the Drift matches we have now

 

 

happy to hear it was a solid flick!

Glad to know there are others who don't like nascar...I have tried to get into it, I just can't...

 

But yeah, some of the Euro cars and tracks are pretty fun to watch...seems like there is more skill involved than  just going around in a circle for three hours.

2001: A Space Odyssey ( 1968)

 

Decided to give it a try for the first time. If I was asked to describe this film in one word I would say that it is geekish. It can bore and confuse an average person ( elitist attitude), puzzle a philosopher but it can excite a geek because it develops all themes which geeks love - technology and science fiction. 

 

I'm judging Kubrick's film after I've watched and appreciated Tarkovsky's Solaris and Stalker, i.e. from the soviet director's perspective. Tarkovsky's films are also elitist but they can inspire a philosopher and underwhelm a geek. They are not proper sci-fi movies, they are philosophical meditations disguised as sci-fi films. Kubrick's movie is a pure science fiction which pretends to be philosophical or pretends to have a grand philosophical meaning though, for example, the transformation into Star child  was visually epic but still I couldn't interpret the meaning and have doubts that there could be any basis for serious analysis ( if only we consider those black noisy blocks in purely symbolical sense). 

 

Why Tarkovsky wasn't satisfied with his Solaris because there was a lot of Kubrick in it, i.e. sci-fi element compromised his ideas. Therefore he made Stalker and he made Soviet sci-fi writers Strugatsky brothers to get rid of science fiction elements in the script as much as possible ( the Strugatskies were stressed but they decided to rewrite the story according to Tarkovsky's demands).

I loved Tchaikovsky's Solaris so much as to seek out the ultra rare Russian 2 disc set which has the movie dubbed in English. I know many may think that seeing Solaris without the original Russian is cheesy, but it makes the movie seem more real for me anyway, to not have to read subtitles. Seeing what Criterion did with the restoration is also amazing. The perfect version (IMO) would be making a Criterion restoration with an English soundtrack.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 80

Space Shuttle photograph of the Black Knight asteroid

 

The 2001: A Space Odyssey Monoliths I think are inspired by the Black Knight asteroid which has been circling earth first discovered in the 1960s. Many folks believe the documentation of radio waves being emitted from the object when it was first to be found existing in our atmosphere. Having very little scientific knowledge passed around about the Black Knight makes stuff like 2001 seem that much more cool.

 

Science fiction has always seemed philosophical and reading the novel for 2001: A Space Odyssey is even more so. It starts to even border on showing a possible spirituality for mankind. Once again we can see the genre of Science Fiction becoming a close parallel to religion but not completely changing into it like Scientology did.

 

Reading 2001 has Arthur C Clark going into tremendous detail about the Monoliths mental transformation transference into early man. Where if I remember right the movie left a lot for the viewer come to their own conclusions, like abstract art. I will have to see the movie again.

I don't think that Sci-fi has inherent philosophical value at all.

Personally I don't much care about this genre and it's not the reason why I love 2001: A Space Odyssey.

When I see this movie I don't feel like I'm watching sci-fi at all.

 

Man I managed to download Stalker and Solaris rips since days ago, but haven't got the time to see them yet, I'm major curious.
