My second favorite Michael Douglas role, good call! Black Rain is my favorite.

I take it you haven't seen Behind The Candelabra then?

By far and away Mr. Douglas' best rôle IMO and a superb film.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I haven't seen any anime in a long time, but today I started on the Owarimonogatari 「終物語」iteration of the Monogatari series, aired Autumn 2015, and it's just phan-tas-tic.

A recommendation for anyone who appreciates good story telling and this particular animation style. Runtime is 5⅔ hours for all 12 episodes combined, so that makes it a very long movie smile

You have got mail smile However language, secondary and tertiary word meanings, word plays and puns is one main asset of the series, so I'm afraid much enjoyment will be lost to translation.

Hmmmm yea, that's pretty well the problem with a lot of 'translations'.  Some thing just do not translate.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I watched the Coen Bros remake of True Grit again yesterday. Though by far not their worst movie (Fargo, Oh Brother Where Art Thou'), it really does nothing to improve on the original. Jeff Bridges does well, but Matt Damon is truly awful in this flick.

Score - Duke 1, Lebowski 0.5.

The Brothers Bloom

a bit like a Coen Brothers movie. touching love story.
the woman who trashes a yellow maserati a day.
the guy who has a constipated soul (she said: you have a big lump of petrified poop up your souls arsehole).

the movie poster sucks, imdb gave a superficial bs description.

My favourite Cohen brothers film big_smile

I love Ulysses (or the Odyssey if you prefer) and I think they made a decent stab of it.

EDIT: And the song is brilliant!

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

Listing some of my recent views.

Entertaining because of many things exploding and good cast but otherwise plain and conventional: Red (2010) and Red 2 (2013). Wouldn't recommend these, though.

Very nice (considering the genre): Enter the Dragon (1973), and Way of the Dragon (1972) (there's always a beautiful China Girl in Lee's films wink.

Good but not as good as Tarantino's takes at the genre: True Grit (2010).

In other news, having heard good things about it, I looked up the Japan release date of The Revenant, which is…April 22nd. Very well, apparently they do not want me to watch it.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I've seen RED - didn't know about RED 2.
Have you seen: Lucy (2014 film).  My wife dragged me to the cinema on day one.  Kinda glad she did, it was nice on the big screen.

My daughter went to Girl Scout camp last weekend.

That meant that my wife and I could see a movie together. We saw "The Martian" and we liked it.

Re: BunsenLabs film thread

I friend of mine recently gave me a tip:
Walk Hard - The Dewey Cox Story (2007) I don't know how I could have missed that one. It has become one of my favorite movies.

@Sector11: Haven't seen Lucy (2014 film) yet, but I will now smile

Thinking my recent screening of True Grit over again, it indeed seems to have nothing extraordinary about it.

hey, that was nice entertainment.
i'm always glad about european productions; they do seem to make things differently.
not that this was exceptionally sophisticated stuff, but different nevertheless.
and yes, visually it would have been nice to see it on a cinema screen...  yikes

I haven't, thanks for the tip!

I'm currently suffering from Matt Damon fatigue, I've realized he's not a very versatile actor. I'll probably watch The Martian tonight, hopefully he'll impress me again.

-edit- since we're talking cool Michael Douglas films, The Game.

^ Good soundtrack too, despite what Matt Damon's character thinks of it.

Rented (digitally) Bridge of Spies last weekend. Decent.
