I thaught it was decent, but really just rent the Spanish Prisoner (another Mamet movie)

 

"There are those out there who criticize director David Mamet's style because of its reliance on zombified performances and overlapping dialogue, but it is this that makes "The Spanish Prisoner" a fantastic and underrated movie. A short description of the film as The Game meets The Usual Suspects is appropriate, with the constant deception and paranoia of the former meeting the intricate plot and mystery of the latter. "

I hought it was alright, but they tried to stuff every single possible plot twist in the last 30 minutes, and it all went to hell. The shooting scene was the icing on the shit cake. Beer,

so true ilove"2"hate..

is it just me or is this place crawling with

the most cynical aggro assholes lately?

 

zesto..haven't read it.

 

the worst possible line from that movie was:

 

"i'm gonna be as quiet as an ant pissing on cotton."

 

to which gene replied:

 

"i don't even want you thinking about being as

quiet as an ant pissing on cotton."

you gotta laugh. hilarious in the most lame sense which is

actually almost good. whatever that means.

 

another one was something like(said by devito):

 

"we all need money, that's why it's called money."

 

? i don't get it..am i just 1/4th retard ?

and danny devito is the worst bad guy.

but in the end at least this movie made me chuckle.

plus gene is always dapper.

is he a bad guy in it?

i don't know..i realized from

this movie that i'm not really

big on devito..

even though he's been in so

much shit i've seen over the

years..i never gave any thought

to him...

but....he gets massive ass props

for being apart of 'matilda'.

he's actually playing the smart, reserved and respectable character.

(which is about as rare as him playing the bad guy!)

I highly recomend it.

 

It turns out my new roomate is a movie junkie.

She'll buy 10 previously viewed movies a week.

The collection is getting HUGE!

 

recent additions:

 

The count of monte cristo

The man who wasn't there

Hiest

Lock, Stock...

Monsters Inc.

A beautiful mind

Sopranos third season

 

Wan Wilder will be my next guilty pleasure!

that's such a fucking doofus line.

browner or zesto, either of you seen amores perros? i've gotten a couple of recommendations for it and i've paid like 17 balls in late fees on it without ever seeing it...

training day

swordfish

MIB II

haha give me stupid hollywood...

i hate hollywood, but if you're gonna do it, do it up... i saw blue crush (long story, but i have a crush on michelle rodriguez) and please believe i'm seeing barbershop with my man james tomorrow... haha...

i liked heist, but thought it was reminiscent of the score which is reminiscent of other movies...

i cant say i was shocked when hacman or deniro got away with it. but how about hackman being 71? shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. i hope i am in as good of shape at 71. or 61. or 51. and that foolio had 3 movies out at that time. the royal tennenbaums being one, and i forget the other.

 

 

king bling- you are so right. the spanish prisoner was very underrated. i like seeing comedy guys try the straight role, a-la robin williams last 3. i like to see if they can pull it off. martin did in that one, IMO.

 

and i likeded minority report.

here's a few my recent Thumbs-Ups*

 

(*as in a good movie, not the phony blockbuster gleam)

 

Wit Based on a Play about a very smart woman's deal with cancer.

It's just so well acted and scripted. I almost cried at the end.

 

Murder by Death A classic take-off of the murder mystery genere

starring Peter Falk, Peter Sellers, Truman Capote and other comedy legends.

It was written by Neil Simon... hence brilliant!

 

and on my must-see list...

 

Dogtown and Z-boys

Red Dragon (please be good!)

Night of the Hunter (Robert Mitchum is the original gangsta)

from a recent review...

 

This delicious screenplay was adapted from the Isak Denisson (pen name for Karen Blixen) short story originally published in the Ladies Home Journal.

 

need I say more?

here's another pick...

 

The Connection

 

A bunch of jazz junkies play 'Waiting for Godot', except Godot is their heroin fix.

It was shot in '61 so it still has that beat flavour without getting all preachy.

 

and baraka if you haven't already seen it.
