Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I only went looking because I wanted to watch it again.  An excellent film.
I also enjoyed: 6 Reasons Why 2001: A Space Odyssey is the Most Important Sci-Fi Movie of All-Time
I ended up Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.  sad  No I didn't watch it.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

oh, terry gilliam films! nice.

i just watched dark shadows - johnny depp & tim burton, always a nice combination - i was surprised that there was one i hadn't seen yet.
anyhow, nice movie. there's not much to say about tim burton movies, or johnny depp as a vampire a lá edward scissorhands, but this had some extra zest with the early 70s theme and the best witch ever.

Speaking of cycling movies, I really want to see Premium Rush someday.

Yes, sounds like a typical Friday rush hour to me lol

But seriously, I have nothing but respect for those pushbike couriers -- the only time I can keep up with the experienced ones in town is if they deign to stop for the lights...

Yes.

The pushbikes have a width (or rather narowness) advantage but I have a greater delta-v capability, the two tend to average out across the City and the West End.

it's amazing how much faster you are on a bicycle, in a city.
and let's face it: if there was no cars, no-one would have to respect the lights, it would still be a lot safer than it is. and cleaner, and quieter...

i did that for a short while - it was a good job.
the biggest menace were taxi drivers that came at me on the wrong side of the road, on purpose.
if we got a ticket from the police, the company paid half of it.

I can see a movie here ... who do we know in Elstree Studios?  I know Ted, but he's not talking anymore. Says Paddington Bear shunned him.  sad

Ooooooooo that's not good! Times like that you need an Uzi machine pistol, just blanks, or a "powderless" grenade to toss in the window.  PANIC!

Of course I'm kidding!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Oh that's good too, like this ABUS

I just checked out your link - I think I've seen that ... the trailer looks familiar. Would be good to see it again for the first time. Yea yea, that sounds bad but like I said, it looks familiar ... smile

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

^ Nah, they were just your basic shackle locks on what appeared to be 0-gauge welded link chains.  Everyone at the courier company used them, even the non-combative riders.

Saw the film.  The "premium rush" service call was essentially a framing device for a human interest story.  Typical jerk cop with anger management issues and a gambling problem, clearly written to be a "hate sink".  Not a bad film; too much focus on social media and GPS product placement.

One thing I found unconvincing was the condition of the streets, which were completely clear of debris, cracks, and potholes like the kind I'm constantly dodging.  Are the streets of New York City really that well maintained?

I've watched Hannah Arendt the day before yesterday. Barbara Sukowa couldn't be any better and made me feel like I knew Hannah personally during those 120minutes. The subject of banality of evil, however, is an ever growing pressing issue these days... sad

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

@ pvsage

Well, I hadn't even seen the trailer when I posted that "lock" ... but I saw what you meant.
There is definitely a 'touch' {cough cough} Hollywood stretching things a tad with the way they ride.  never picked up on the conditions of the streets though, you might well have a point.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Tonight's moving picture was Donnie Brasco (1997).

I find more and more reasons to think that Al Pacino is one of the best actors of our time. One of my most favourite actors in any case. Every character he plays becomes so expressive and memorable, the film just falls into place around him. I saw Dog Day Afternoon (1975) the other day; now I'm collecting his movies big_smile

^I've recommended Serpico earlier in this thread. A must-see.

I've been quoting "Scent of a Woman" a lot recently. Mostly "... I'd take a FLAMETHROWER TO THIS PLACE!!!" Also, "... I'm too old, I'm too tired, I'm too fuckin' blind."

Tangerine (2015 film, apparently shot on iPhones, about transgender hookers)

I wanted to challenge myself with a film about a subculture I have no experience with or interest in.  I quit about 45 minutes into the film.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Just watched old B&W film
"The Thing from another world" (1951)  surprisingly good, and old 1950's films are also funny at the same time.
The guys are incredibly sexist.

Tonight's moving picture was Falling Down (1993).

I'm giving it 9/10, which is a rare grade. The IMDB summary is none; it's completely inaccurate.

Almost forgot this one. On of my favorites! That scene in the fastfood place was awesome.

Just watched "The Hateful Eight" last night. a new favorite. Highly recommend if you're okay with blood and violence in movies.

I can't wait to see the new Tarantino, however the release date here is February 27th (moronic choice, still doing geographically distributed releases), so I'll get to see it then…unless it hits the wire before that, of course. No spoilers please >_<
