Just sat through all of Casino for the first time in a while. Always good.
You either die a hero or live long enough to watch yourself become the Berra.

^ Casino is always a good one.  You typically can't go wrong with the Scorsese + De Niro collaborations.

Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man

I still haven't felt I was ready to rewatch Blue Velvet just yet.  That shit deserves some time and with no distractions

I agree, any Lynch film for me takes like complete focus. Especially Eraserhead. That took a few tries.

try inland empire lol

Real slow, watched it once I think. Not saying focusing in on them is a bad thing, I just seems like you miss once scene you're kind of lost. Mulholland drive is a good example. I do think Blue Velvet is my favorite of his work.

who cares. it's all a matter of opinion anyway. "well-crafted"
could certainly mean a number of different things.

I always thought that "well-crafted" in this case meant that it's more of a technical achievement than an artistic one.

^ I feel the same way with Apocalypse Now. I tried to watch it a little while ago with people talking over it and me drinking so it didnt really work. Bought it the other day for 4 bucks and havent had the time to invest into it.

Yeah, I've been interested in it since I was around 14 or 15.  I'm going to school for it.

Confession: I've got my fantasies of being a filmmaker.

I think I'm too much of a coward to simply go for it though. Ironic isn't it? Film making today has never been more accessible thanks to digital cameras and editing software, but at the end of the day, that shit still takes some balls.

As to not derail this thread -

I wish I could. I really would like to maybe do something with soundtracks in film. Don't think I'm capable of writing a script or anything.

What year was that all-star game in your signature? Looks like '03, MJ's last one.

My sig is from 03'.  I'm originally from Illinois and a huge bulls fan, just thought that pic was super awesome.  As for writing scripts their is a program that is free you can download at this address: http://celtx.com/download.html called 'Celtx'.  It's really simple and almost the same as using this screenwriting program called 'final draft'.  Just start off trying to right like 10 page shorts, and gradually progress on to more and more.  The more scripts you download/read the easier and easier it will get to write.  Eventually it becomes kinda like second nature.

yeah im just starting out film making and ive found scripts to be the hardest part of it (assuming you want to write and direct). i tend to start a story that im psyched on then ditch it when i come up with a even greater idea. i have countless unfinished scripts laying around. its definitely more likely to finish a good script when you have a burning story to tell rather than just wanting to write a screenplay.

i definitely want to get off of my lazy ass and go to film school and such.
it would be kewl to write and get involved in films.

Also saw the breakfast club. I guess it was edgy for it's era? it still
was pretty unimpressive to me for a slew of reasons. there are
one or two memorable moments but the acting is such shit mostly.
And of course I was displeased with the writing, which was shit.

I will give it a 3/10

Watched both parts 1 and 2 back-to-back. About five hours total maybe (with smoke break intermission).

Che is quite good. I'm still in the midst of watching.

Amores Perros. By the same guy as 21 grams.
It is essentially the same basic plotline as 21 grams,
but nonetheless worth checking out.

Sergio, Morricone, AND Deniro? That looks like a movie I could fall in love with.

i know so many people who hate this movie but i absolutely love it. i think i might even like it more than good bad and the ugly. leone certainly knows how to take his time telling a complete story without boring me.

Mother


Japanese film about the mother of a mentally handicapped
young adult, and her desperation to keep him out of trouble.
Lots of interesting existential themes, visually captivating.
