Can’t wait for Human Condition! As for MM + MO Double Bill, i’m gonna skip out on Obsession. Cause my screener for it should be arriving soon, unless I’m tempted for a second viewing.
Most anticipated for Zerkalo though.
Go out and Vote movie Dorks!!!!
It took me more than two weeks to find a poppy… But I have one now!
I’ll see you guys at the Part II screening at 4 PM this afternoon. Work makes it so that I’m not hardcore enough. :(
Myra I’m burning your copy of Notre Musique now~
can’t wait to do this! (human condition, that is)
Just so you guys know…
The fact that you’re going to see The Human Condition Trilogy in theatres made me so jealous I had to spend my last $40 on it in the Barnes & Nobles 1/2 off sale. You guys are contributing to my poverty.
Kurt, bringing you Magnificent Ambersons.
Myra, it’s okay. I know you’re tough.
This is gonna be pretty great.
And Col. Dax, sometimes we win sometimes we lose.
I’m bringing a Powerbar.
This is going to be a breeze.
AGH. Me jealous. Me not see film till Christmas. Film be broken up by annoying family.
Bad Lieutenant Meet up TIME!
Nicholas Cage & Xzibit? Sounds like a real winner! (imagine me saying that with as much sarcasm as humanly possible).
I’m sorry to the herzog fans, but this film looks terrible.
OK. Marko isn’t invited to anything ever.
SHOOT HIM AGAIN ADAM. His soul is still dancing.
Bad Lieutenant was a sub-par movie, I doubt Herzog’s remake with Nic Cage could be any better.
Yeah, you’ve got a point. I mean all it has is a better director who wants to go in a more interesting direction with more than one good actor (No, Cage is not included).
theres a guy in this thread who thinks Ferrera’s Bed Lieutenant is a masterpiece.
What can I say, the original left me with no intention to see it or its ilk again. Herzog is a fantastic director with an incredible strive and I figure if anyone could make it better, it’d be him. Maybe with enough positive (and hopefully, seemingly unbiased reviews) I may see it. I guess I should have reworded my sentence to something more like “I doubt Herzog will improve it enough for me to warrant a return.” I can, and have, been proven wrong before.
I don’t remember if we actually discussed it Walker but I did tell you what I think its main flaw is (I think I did anyways). Keitel is very good in it though, it just missed the mark for me. I see why others like it but I do not.
I don’t know, I’m now of the mind that remakes have absolutely nothing to do with the original. Like Maltese Falcon. Those first efforts were pretty poor, yet the third one is a masterpiece. Or The Fly. There is no indication that a remake of that would be anything but terrible, and yet Cronenberg’s is brilliant. I guess my point is this: never say never.
@ Joshua finally someone admits it, although I admit sometime remakes are as bad as the original or worse
Did everyone go to Tinseltown in Vancouver? Or is there another theatre playing it? I’m curious cause the only theatre I could find it at was Tinseltown but I wanna see it again somewhere else…
Pavel, people have far too many prejudices when it comes to recycling movie ideas.
And yeah, I went to Tinseltown. I liked it except for the awful crowd, but that should dissipate in the coming weeks, at least enough to justify a second viewing.
Bad Lieutenant opens at Esplanade theatre on friday.
Anyone interested in going to 35 Shots of Rum at Vancity on saturday?
I plan on watching 35 Shots of Rum sometime that weekend I think, but I also want to watch Lee Isaac Chung’s Munyurangabo. Does anyone feel like doing both? (No?)
I’m really happy to see Vancity playing Yilmaz Güney’s Yol on December 1st. I would go to that had I not just seen it recently. :(
Oh to be in Vancouver right now… keen on seeing both 35 Shots of Rum AND Munyurangabo! Believe me, almost nobody would join me in seeing the latter!
Kurt, Myra and Adam, I might be in Vancouver in June next year (my parents were married in Vancouver, next year is their 20th anniversary). Anything on then?
I’m sure there will be something of worth playing at our two cinematheques. If not we could always organize a house screening. We’ll have to keep in touch on this possibility!
Myra I’m game for being dragged to films i’ve never heard of, as long as we fit in 35 Ruhms!
Law – In my experience the cinematheque usually packs a bunch of really neat, esoteric stuff in the months leading up to August which is their film noir festival which basically makes them enough money to keep running the rest of the year. So June should be pretty good timing.
:O There are actually takers on Chung’s Munyurangabo? Excellent.
Is this still happening on Saturday?
Will be at 35 Shots of Rum tonight. Can’t wait, the film is one of the best films of 09!
