  • Re: Movies: New Ideas Welcome II Prequel Reboot

    Match:
    As a Juilliard professor is interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960s New York, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit.

    I'm a big fan of Patrick Stewart and Matthew Lillard. Both acted the HELL out of this movie. Intense drama, and so much worth watching. Both actors just chew their scenes like someone who has starved for a week and was then served a fine steak.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        The Debt:

        Not the Nazi one. This one, it involves a landowner, a buyer of land, and a nurse, whose lives intertwine during a bad land deal. Based in Peru. Pretty good drama, not outstanding. Took a while to put all the connections together, and it was worth the wait. A bit of a moral drama.

          Good choice for back to back. I have all 3 on DVD only because the 3rd was force fed into the package deal.

                  I, Olga Hepnarova:

                  Slavic movie, based on the true story of Olga Hepnarova who decided to drive her vehicle through a crowd of people because of the way she was treated in the past by her family/etc.

                  A little artsy with the extended shots of nothing happening, but that could be a cultural thing. Lots of lesbian scenes. Lots of them. They didn't really add anything to the plot itself. Again, could be a cultural thing. It was okay. It was about 90 minutes long, and they could have trimmed 30 minutes off of it, and not missed a thing.

                        Oblivion was... bad.

                        I do not understand the appeal of the short-legged Scientologist, but this was bad even for him.

                          I liked Cruise in Collateral (was that it? With Jamie Foxx as the cab driver).

                          A frustrated novelist finds new zest in life with the help of his imaginary superhero friend and a local teenage girl (no, not in THAT way).

                          It's about an hour and a half of awkwardness with a decent final 20 minutes. Overall, I liked the movie, I thought it was well done. The cast definitely helped: Lisa Kudrow, Jeff Daniels, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds.

                            Gotta admit though, it does give one a zest for life.

                              Cruise was good in Edge Of Tomorrow but probably only because it was such a great story.

                                This list reinforces two things for me.

                                1. "Greatest" lists should not include anything released in the last 20 years. Half the movies since 1997 on that list will drop off it by that rule.

                                2. Some Like it Hot still fools critics on pure inter-generational momentum. It's a good comedy, sure, a perfectly cromulent comedy. But for f-ck's sake it doesn't even belong in the top 50, and I LOVE Billy Wilder.

                                Annie Hall is also grossly overrated because it's a movie essentially made for film critics. It's good and my god that ending but again, not even top 50.
