Ladder 49

It was hard to get good seats as a lot of people were there and the theater had reserved seating for the local fire department.

If the local fire fighters were all together watching the movie who was responding to the fires? :)

I'm watching The Positive-Negative Man episode of The Avengers right now. I did, however, watch Fahrenheight 9/11 for the first time on DVD yesterday evening before I caught the debate on NBC (must plug the network I work for every now and then :)). The special features on the disc are an eye-opener for sure.

Just saw Hero with Jet Li and Quetin Tarantino wrote I think the script, the first 1 and half hours I was like...wha?? And the last half hour just blew me away, incredible film filled with great dialogue and symbolism. Tied well and written well in the end.

Actually, Tarantino didn't write the script. In fact, he had no creative role whatsoever in the film. He simply "presents" it, in other words he likes HERO and is happy for Miramax to use his name to promote it. That's it. HERO was a finished film (and a smash hit in Asia) long before it became associated with Tarantino.

I recently watched Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca. It seems like I'm in a little Hitch film frenzy or so, but I've been checking his moves out alot lately, and this one was absolutely outstanding. For being his only to win the award, it definitely shows. From the very beginning even, it knows where it's going and has a definite style.

Probably his best with Selznick IMO. I recommend it to everyone.

Just saw Tamahori's 'Along Came A Spider'. It was okay. Interestingly, it is followed by Spottiswoode's 'Shoot to Kill'. :)

Watched Farenheit 9/11 on DVD last night. What a piece of anti-Bush propaganda. I was only too happy to return that to Netflix just as fast as I got it. Tonight we'll watch more of Alias-Season 3 on DVD.

Surprisingly, I haven't watched any new films lately...even though I work at the theatre. I'm surprised also that "Ladder 49" is getting some good notices; I thought it was going to be another Travolta dud.

The last movie I saw was "Resident Evil: Apocalypse". As video game-movies go, it's Oscar-worthy. :) But the film as a whole is a bad headache. Only hyper-minded video-gamers will enjoy this silly, shotgun to the head movie. It's only highlights is its inspired production, and some scares here and there.

Grade: C-

The Great Escape - Again. Love it more each time I see it. A classic that leaves you burning with pride by the movies end, and proves that mens spirits can overcome awesome odds. And I don't care what anyone says, there has NEVER been anyone cooler (king :)) then Steve McQueen.

TO THE FIFTY!

I, too, have been itching to see Collateral. I just love watching Tom C. play bad (it beats the cocky, angry young man bit that he's been milking to death from ALL THE RIGHT MOves to TOP GUNK to the MI testosterobe overload movies). Too bad he's about as tall as my legs.

Today, I saw SHAUN of the DEAD. If you have not seen it, see it now. It's more of a comedy with a dash of horror. Those Brits sure crack me up. Of course, the other Americans at work are completely befuddled by it. That's what happens when your worship George Bush. :)

MEOW.

Hi,

I watched "Laws of Attraction" last evening, and I have to say it was pretty awful. False comedy combined with a lack of any chemistry between Pierce and Julianne Moore made this move so cheesy, and Mrs Doubtfiresque comedy without the talent of Robin Williams.

As soon as it reached Ireland, this movie really took a nosedive, and the production filmed some of the worst parts of Ireland.

I have to admit thought that Pierce looked better in this one than in any of his James Bond films because he was allowed to look like himself and was quite natural. In need of a haircut and not too slicked back as it is Bond.

Now, this is when I like Pierce, he's not the silly hero shooting the brown sauce out of every villain, he's got a normal job and lives almost like anyone else. He seems to fit the 'everyday man' better than a superhero.

I would say ( although not a Brosnan lover ) he could easily do another Bond flick because he's starting to look mature, and less 'pretty'. OK, he still act's like he did in Mrs Doubtfire and every movie since, but I feel he's getting a little more depth in his roles now. He looks almost as young as Connery did in Goldfinger. :)

Cheers,


Athena.....er....Ian :) :)

Although not a movie I saw "Bowling For Columbine" for the first time last night - it was the Asian TV premier. Don't think it was ever released in any other format around here.

Amazing docco! I knew beforehand the whole gun issue in Amaerica (who doesn't around the world), but the Canadian comparison utterly surprised me - it isn't an issue there at all is it? Why isn't half of America living there then to get away from the cronic gun issue?

Chris Rock proposed there shouldn't be gun control but a bullet control - make them $5,000 each to buy. Pretty funny piece considering the sobbering content of the docco. Made me think of Scaramanga too actually.

Charlton Heston is a sad pathetic individual. Didn't do his side of the gun issue an favours.

There were numerous misleading things in Bowling, and I'll try and remember to go into it when it isn't 3am. Michael Moore may do deceitful things at times I do think it's a case of the ends justifying the means so I have a lot of respect for him in that department.

Well, he was preaching to the converted anyway because I see no reason why anyone should be allowed to have a gun - an urban home owner or a criminal. Either not having one cancels out any rise of "a gun issue" at all.

I DO fully understand the need for guns to country property owners to control vermin/stock.

Just saw Resident Evil: Apocalypse. A slickly directed piece of nonsense, even if it's all a reworking of elements from other movies, and there's enough action to drive it along.
