RE: Last film you watched, and review


This is going back in time a bit, but Pan's Labirynth was pretentious twaddle, I thought. As for Heavenly Creatures, it had a hypnotic quality - in so far as madness is hypnotic until it becomes tedious. But - call me weird - matricide is not my bag...weirdface

The last movie I saw was Sweeney Todd. I really liked it, but I am a very big fan of musicals. It was like, the craziest, bloodiest musical I've ever seen. Plus, Johnny Depp is always good!wink.gif

The last cinema fillum I watched was St trinian's which was absolute rubbish but hugely enjoyable. Although the girl in it turned down Russell Brand, which you simply would not do. Silly person.

I'd turn down Russel Brand. You don't know where he's been. And, you do know where he's been.

And hands off Johnny, I saw him first...

I'm just watching "If" (1968 - with Malcolm McDowell). Excellent film...

And I loved "Heavenly Creatures".

Heavenly Creatures is very good. Lovely film.

I watched the South Park movie yesterday, but that's ages old. I saw Transformers last week and thought it was ok.

I know this is going to sound a bit weird but I've gone off new films, because most of them seem to be just full of celebrity actors, whizzbang effects and end with cheap sentimentality. And when it's all over, you think 'yeah that was alright' but nothing has left a mark.

So the weird bit: it's Sunday morning and there's nothing on telly except Xtian stuff. I want to just loaf because I was out on the razz last night so, this morning, I want to settle down with the fire on and a cup of tea and some toast and watch a nice film. And the only film on telly was an old (1959) B cowboy with Randolph Scott, a real old-school cowboy actor. It was called "Ride Lonesome" and that's such a naff title, I thought it was going to be doo-doo.

But it wasn't: it was a thoughtful cowboy film that moved quite slowly between the odd action scene. All the characters were mixed: the goodies were flawed and the baddies had real human sides. It did the traditional cowboy thing of 'a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do...' but it flexed so that you could see the characters changing slightly as the plot worked its way through and it ended in a nice ambiguously unsatisfactory way, like life often does.

So what am I saying? I think I'm saying if you like films, spend a bit of time catching older films too and don't dismiss them straight off because they're not instantly cool. Let yourself slip into their pace and style and don't judge them by the slight corniness or kitsch or because they're black and white.

I think, back then, Hollywood tried to give better value for money (script, acting etc) and didn't just rely on cheap pyrotechnics.

JOHNNY IS MINE. Always and forever, bitches.

It's funny- when you really, really want to see a movie, it doesn't happen. I was looking forward to Sweeney Todd so damn much, but was only able to see it last night. Finally.

I am never eating pie again. I am never getting my hair cut ever again. I have never been happier that I am a woman and do not need to shave anywhere near my throat.

Sweeney Todd is a dark, fierce, desperate film, exactly what I needed. The music is FANTASTIC (he sings! I was squeeing myself to death!), the acting is incredible, the costumes are far more than simply droolworthy (I swear, I'd kill to get Mrs. Lovett's dress from 'Not While I'm Around'), plus we get to see Johnny in a silly little stripey bathing suit and later absolutely drenched in blood. WHILE SINGING. It's perfect. And the essence of gothness, in my opinion- dark and bloody but with a whimsical side which is perfectly expressed in the songs. It's not too scary, but oh my god, blood much?!

I can't help but wonder what would have happened if Tim Burton had directed Pirates of the Caribbean. Something to dream about.

On a side note, as soon as I got home, I threw away all my silly little disposable razors and plan to buy a set of silver straight razors. Hehehe....

I really want to see Sweeney Todd, but I'll have to pile on the war paint because it's an 18...

On the subject of that, kinda, did anyone else get told that story by their relatives, in my case my gran, when they were little, like 4? Cos she did, and it proper freaked me out! I was well scared when I went to London for the first time, cos I thought he'd come and get me!

I grew up surrounded by theatre people, so I'm very familiar with the Broadway version, though I've never seen it performed live. It was hilarious seeing it with my frieds, who couldn't help but sing along with every single song.

Party Monster starring Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green.

I thought this movie was fabulous and terribly entertaining. Its a true story about Michael Alig (Culkin) who is a famous 'Club Kid' who plans extravagent partys in 90's NYC. He brags about murdering his drug dealer on television and sends his herione addicted life out of control.

It's a gorgeous, fun, alternative film that is both amazingly creative and dramatic while still being fun. I find the outfits in the film very inspiration for my own style.

Oh, and Marilyn Manson plays a woman.

The Dark Knight.

It was amazing. This may sound a little sick, but I can completely understand why Heath Ledger was so haunted by his character.
The Joker...so amazing. So amazing. I can't even express how brilliantly psychotic he was.
The laughing in the videos was actually chilling.

And the makeup/cgi on the film is incredible. I mean, 2-face. So..confusing!

I would probably never watch this film again. Not because it's bad. Its brilliant. And I wouldn't want to ruin that by over-watching it.

I went and saw 'Hellboy 2: The golden army' last week and it's awesome! So much better than the first. With this one you can sooo tell that Del Toro directed it- his use of colours is amazing and the monsters are brilliant! Can't wait to find out if they're making another one.

I miss Nuala so much. He just wanted to save his people. And he was an excellent fighter.

I want to see Hell Boy 2 but should really see Hell Boy 1 first...

The Duchess was good; I thought that Ralph played the part of an egotistical, self-interested, difficult and condescending duke rather flawlessly...

Do you think there was much acting needed from Ralph?

You should watch Hellboy, it's quite a fun little film. Watch it as soon as you can. :)

Well, there was acting needed to make the film in the first place :P

But no, he is generally sexy and I don't mind him being demanding but he was pretty horrible in the film, apart from the end of it when he looked at her the way he did as though he was sorry but it was a secret apology...

I might watch it this Friday if I have time actually.

I watched Paris, Je T'aime yesterday and loved it. Eighteen short films about Paris and love, a smattering of famous people, and international selection of directors. the Coen Brothers' section was the funniest five minutes they've ever crafted. Loved it. They're making a sequel, New York, I Love You. Which I'm assuming will have a lot less French in it...

Also re-watched The Player, about a movie exec who kills a writer. I remember seeing it when it first came out and it's still as good now as it was then.
