    i'm just curious if i'm the only person who thought "bomb the system" was the biggest piece of shit movie. i thought it was bubble gum bullshit, and the whole MTV quality was fucking annoying. i rented the movie, with high expectations, but was let the fuck down big time. then i was reading a thread, and people were saying they loved it. how? it was so fucking gay, it made richard simmons look like conan the barbarian. the acting was pathetic, the fucking script was pathetic. the fucking ending --fucking gayer than butt sex. who the fuck is going to paint the brooklyn bridge in the rain --i don't care who just got killed. did anyone tell the director that painting in the rain is pretty much useless?

    stupid fucking movie, stupid fucking attempt. there were aspects that were dead on, but the final product was corny. i hear the guy who wrote it, pretty much wasn't even a writer. he just went off stories some guy he worked with told him.

    i won't even get started on that movie "the graffiti artist." don't even attempt to watch that one, unless you like dude on dude love.

    if you haven't heard of bomb the system:

    http://imdb.com/title/tt0337585/

    i'm just opening this up for conversational purposes. if anyone has seen any good narratives, based on graff, let me know. i'm talking recent films, not beat street and wild style.

    i'll have to look for "whole car." is it a narrative or a documentary? i love the german scene's style, so either way i'm sure i'll like it. as for "piece by piece" --i've been dying to see that since i heard about it. there have been a few docs put out in the last few years, which i'm dying to see. "dithers" and that upper playground doc are two i've got on my list.

    some of the visuals weren't bad, i'll agree. if they took all that bullshit soap opera shit out, the movie might have been monumental in a way. someone needs to write a script that isn't trying to fucking hard to feed into the marc ecko/mtv media machine. people need to stop raping hip hop in the ass.

    delonemonkey, i guess i'll have to out myself and admit i liked "the graffiti artist" pre-balloon knot bandit days. the whole opening scene worked well. it just followed him, no real dialogue, no real drama. just following him around doing what he does. then he gets down to burnside (skatepark) and sees that dude. that's when it started to get shady. i remember thinking, this can't be a gay dude. then he sees the dude in seattle, and i said it again --this can't be a gay dude. but it just got gayer and gayer by the minute. he went from tagging walls, to eating pizza, to tagging dirtstars in a half an hour. i don't care how homophobic i sound, and people can say whatever they want --that fucking movie was the biggest piece of false advertising i've ever seen. the back of the box makes it sound like some kind of existential self finding plot. but you start watching it, and it becomes a fucking gay high school kid's wet dream. that movie was more of a let down than bomb the system.

    I liked The Graffiti Artist, the gay part was probably the most unneeded thing but the movie wasn't all that bad. My favorite line is when they get into the argument outside of the record shop and the dude with the curly hair says
    "why don't you get a fucking job"
    and the other dude responds
    "naw, fuck that, I'm not gonna get taken advantage of."

    i didn't watch the gay part. i went to the next chapter, and back peddled to where the gay part ends. so i don't exactly know how "gay" they got. maybe they just did each other's nails, i don't know. i thought the whole love story, broken heart bullshit was corny as hell though. if you took out the boy on boy love/drama in that movie, it could have worked. to me though, it was just written for old art fags to jerk off and cry too.

    there was a french flick called "IP5." i always wonder if the dude who wrote "graffiti artist" was inspired by it. it's about a writer in france who writes IP5. he falls in love with this house call nurse, but she basically disses him for who he is. then the kid gets his blackbook taken by some skinheads, who hold it randsom while he runs drugs to a different town. anyways, the dude turns his back on the skinheads and his blackbook, and sets out to find this chick. by his side the whole movie, is a young kid who he's watching out for. if you liked "the graffiti artist" you'll probably like "IP5." i haven't seen it in years --probably came out in 92 or 93.
