    O Brother Where Art Thou?

    Discussion started by Sonik3000 - Nov 26, 2001

    I'd just like to begin a tribute thread.
    This movie rocked.
    The soundtrack was all the old-timey stuff I was brought up on as a little kid.
    And it's based on the Odyssey.
    I know the Odyssey backwards and forwards.
    Ulysses too, and there's even a few tips of the hat in there to it.
    And crime. Let's not forget crime.
    So thanks Coen Brothers.
    That movie rocked.

    I loved that movie,
    The replacement of torturo by a frog after he meets the 'sirens' made me laugh to tears for some reason.
    Coen brothers really have a sense of humor and a very extraordinary view on life.
    I really enjoyed their latest film as well.
    Homer is the man, you should read the original:)

    yeah, that movie made my year. i doubt anyone would say differently, unless they're trying to contradict the thread like a smart ass.

    the soundtrack is a gem too.

    two big, swolen thumbs up for Raising Arizona aswell.

    my favorite music in that movie was the dude who sold his soul to the devil so he could play the guitar.

    amazing movie. Something about the colors of that movie will always stick with me. Very vibrant.

    "The Man That Wasn't There" is going to be amazing too

    me and the girl probably spent over $70 trying to watch it. we would rent it, not get a chance to watch it, put it somewhere to return it and forget for like a month. we idid this on at least 4 occasions, no joke. we finally got to watch it the other weekend and both loved it. too bad we coulda bought it cheaper...
    good stuff though

    back in december I was going through boxes of my music shit and found an old book of folk songs, it was my dad's in the 60's and somehow I copped it, maybe when I stole his Mickey Baker book, but anyway, most of the songs were kinda beat up, but there was this one... it really caught my eye and then my ear... I was almost to the point of having it all worked out and suddenly that movie came out and 'I am a Man of Constant Sorrow' was all on the radio and tv... I was so pissed, they stole my thunder so I dropped the song... I guess I'm still bitter...

    You're in the US?
    Its not on theaters yet?
    I've seen the film its DOPE, very different from 'oh brother' or 'Lebowski'
    but very good film, it reminded me Jarmuch's "Dead Man"

    That movie was great. The haunting little ditty that the Sirens were singing was my favorite song...

    DOUBTLESS!!!! Also Flatt & Scruggs, Earl Flatt got his start with Doc Watson, but he and Lester are best known for the theme to the Beverly Hillbillies...
