BunsenLabs film thread

We don't have one of these yet, do we?

Just saw the 1984 film version of Nineteen Eighty-Four.  I remember reading the book in high school, but all I remembered about it was the 12-vs-24-hour-clock thing, the scene with the Prole hooker, and of course "two and torture make five".  Pretty good movie.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

And a darn good book. I recently gave the book a re-read, because, well....so many parallels to between the book and what is going on in the US political front these days.

Just saw the original '1968 Night of the living dead'. And it can't get much better that this guy.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ I kinda like the View Askewniverse, but the only Kevin Smith film I actually bought was Dogma.  Had the DVD version that had a DTS audio track that rattled the windows, even with my weak home-theater-in-a-box.  (Although my VHS copy of the 1999 remake of The Haunting also rattled the windows, and that with just a 2.1 PC speaker set. yikes )

Holy crap. I'm not sure I'd last watching it in 3D, my toes would fall off from all the tingling.

I'm actually scared of heights and went to see it in part to face the demon. It helped to rationalise it e.g. you're safe in a cinema, it's a true story and no one died etc.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Recently watched this movie: Gloriously wasted, trailer. (Finnish movie; contrary to usual practice, there are far better and more comical scenes in actual movie compared to the trailer.)

This is how we European people do it ... highly recommended  cool  cool

Edit: I meant: the movie is highly recommended smile

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Anyone seen any of Jodorowsky's work?  I tried watching The Holy Mountain, but the first five minutes were so bizarre that I couldn't watch any further.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

The documentary called "Jodorovsky Dune" is excellent, which features mr. himself, but luckily is not his work.

^ Yeah, I saw that first, and that's what piqued my interest.  I find his own oeuvre completely inaccessible.

I watched Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me again today. Fun movie that one.

I love this movie, and fun it mostly is not. smile

@twoion, +1 to that list, except in all my years as a film buff I've never even heard of Leone/Morricone/De Niro 'Once Upon...' I'm looking forward to watching this! I just watched Reservoir Dogs again, man it's good.

More Leone, "My Name is Nobody".

Some of my faves not yet mentioned...

  • A Touch of Evil ('98 restoration)

  • Blade Runner

  • Seven Samarai (Japanese)

  • Tampopo (Japanese)

  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail

  • The Big Lebowski

  • La Femme Nikita (French)

  • Taxi Driver

  • Raging Bull

  • The Departed

  • The Shining

  • Full Metal Jacket

  • The Exorcist

  • Jaws

  • The Seventh Seal (Swedish)

  • Alien

  • M (German)


Some of my guilty pleasures...

  • The Omega Man

  • Enter the Dragon

  • Game of Death (from "Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey")

  • Goldfinger

  • Beetlejuice

  • The Breakfast Club

  • The Empire Strikes Back

  • 2010: The Year We Make Contact

  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture

  • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

  • Star Trek (Abrams reboot)

  • Caddyshack

  • Animal House

  • Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (Japanese), along with almost all of the early Toho films

  • Aliens

  • Terminator

  • Jon Carpenter's The Thing

  • Escape from New York

  • The Road Warrior (Mad Max 2)

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

  • On Any Sunday

Some of these are pretty bad films, and I love them. I'm trying to remember what movie mentions how movies change when you watch them over time, because the movie is the same but you've changed, but it eludes me.

I'm sure I'll think of more later.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

The Hunt for Red October, another guilty pleasure, along with the Evil Dead franchise and Hellbound: Hellraiser II

I just finished watching The Dark Knight and as much as I'd like to give this film a thumbs up, I was just cringing throughout at Zimmer and Howard's ominous, moaning, rumbling, bullcrap, make-it-stop score.

Wikipedia says Zimmer compares the score to the style of Kraftwerk. Ha!

More love for Clint. Mystic River, Unforgiven and Gran Torino. Almost everything he's ever done, I'm a sucker for In the Line of Fire, The Outlaw Jose Wales, and The Gauntlet.
