    Now I feel bad, I've never even heard of Phantom of the Paradise.

    It was out around the same time as Rocky Horror. Pretty much the same cult status yet an nth as well known. Great songs by Paul Williams and arguably DePalma's best work, you know...before he became a **** merchant. Sorry, but I cannot put into words how angry and abused I felt watching Snake Eyes/Mission to Mars in a movie theater. I do not walk out of movies so I forced myself to stay and take my medicine. And brother that was one nasty medicine teaspoon.

    There is nothing wrong with your feeling that way and you do not need to apologize for hating the man responsible for such horror having been unleashed on the moviegoing world.

    But Phantom Of The Paradise is great and I maintain that Carrie is as well.

    The Believers - Martin Sheen is a widower who runs afoul of some voodoo guys while helping investigate a series of grisly child murders. It was ok. Some intense sequences that I liked, and the bad guy is pretty creepy, but the whole thing was also kind of silly, I thought. Worth a watch, though.



    Where The Buffalo Roam - Watching Bill Murray as Hunter S. Thompson and Peter Boyle as Oscar Zarate was a very surreal experience. They both did a really good job, but it was very difficult not to compare them to Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Toro's portrayals, which I liked a lot better. This movie had some really funny bits, mostly in Hunter's dialogue, but as far as the story goes it seemed really uneven. An interesting watch.

    Reading Cloud Atlas so close before watching the movie turned out to be a mistake. The inexorable intrusion of the book in my mind during the movie prevented me from being able to ingest the film viscerally. Subsequently, I walked away less with a strong feeling about the film in any direction, and more with some kind of mechanical diagnosis of the effectiveness of various cogs and sprockets in the machine.

    If you feel like you must both read the book and watch the film, I'd say watch the film first. Either way, there will be a few spoilers, a few major ones, mostly minor, though. However, I would think the book could more easily withstand the giveaways, especially since you will not know right away which events are the same in both and which differ until you pass by.

    All things considered, I did not like it on the whole, but I would encourage most people to see it and judge for themselves. Hm. I will at least post my list of reasons to see/not see this movie in either this or another thread. I can't do it right now, though.

    I have Green Street Hooligans on tap. I checked out a preview. I don't know how I'm gonna watch this and not get distracted and bothered by Charlie Hunnam's shoddy attempt at a Cockney accent.

    I'm usually not the subtitle kind of person, but netflix keeps suggesting movies that have em.




    First I watched The Good, The Bad and the Wierd. I think some of you guys were talking about this movie a while back. I thought it was a pretty good movie. A solid action filled adventure.




    Second I watched Ip Man. Wow this was a pretty great movie. The fight scenes were bad ass. I didnt realize till the end that it was based on a real person


    Edit: Oh yeah I also watched Bunraku. Did not like.
