And here: lukeprog's scoreboard.

nice to see a good rating of Jumanji, i expected that to get bad ratings, i myslef love it but i know it has got bad press. Robin williams is great in everything he is in

Hmm...yes. I've probably given such a good rating, because of Robin Williams.
He surely had his two greatest parts in Mrs. Doubtfire and especially Dead Poets Society.

Have you seen Awakenings? That is probably my favorite role for Robin.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

No, unfortunately not.
And he was really better in this movie than in Dead Poets Society (where I think he was almost perfect)?

Yep, in my opinion.

He plays a shy, painfully reserved individual, which is quite a stretch for Mr. Williams.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Williams in a shy and reserved role? Wow, now I really want to see that movie.

yeah i want to see Awakenings i also have "What dreams may come" on my screenselect list.
"good morning Vietnam" is amazing also

And two other films I haven't yet seen. Hmmm...way to go.

I would most definitely not qualify In The Mouth of Madness as disappointing... I found that movie well-thought, written and played... the references to the horror book craze added to the atmosphere... the only weakness in my view would be that the places and events depicted in the movie are supposed to allude to Stephen King's works when it's actually much more of a nod to the classic Chtulhu tales of HP Lovecraft

Actually I liked the film at the beginning, but then it unfortunately became increasingly dumb. The end is interesting though.

please, your views on Sideways? i'm trying like Crazy to find a UK cinema thats running it!

I've seen it today, after having waited a LONG time for it. I was definetly NOT disappointed. It is a 'small', very human comedy about 2... losers, who become increasingly likeable through the whole film. Actually it is not a comedy like Airplane! or The Naked Gun where you laugh aloud. It is very decent and subtle. The actors are all in all phenomenally great. I think you'll enjoy these 2 hours.

hey mate. just wondering how your movie watching is going so far? have you seen more than you thought or set out to so far? seen less? i was thinking of doing this but then i already had my "Seen Aug04 - Aug05" to deal with :)are there any movies still on your to see list? also i justt saw the first UK advert for life aquatic today! yay!

Till now I'm rather satisfied with what I have seen for this year, even though there is quite a lot of crap in this list. Yet I'm very happy that I have finally seen Giant. This was the last one of the three major James Dean-films I still had to watch.
Movies I really want to see at the moment are The Godfather, Part II (well, I've ordered the DVD Box at amazon), African Queen, High Noon, The Seven Samurai, The Deer Hunter, Midnight Cowboy and Annie Hall. A more recent film I just have to see is Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby.
For The Life Aquatic: The Luxembourg-release is set for the 26th of february, but I'm not really interested in that one. Of course, the cast is great, but I still haven't forgotten how much The Royal Tenenbaums disappointed me (even though I'm already thinking of giving it the notorious second chance)...

you haven't Seen Midnight cowboy, man your in for a treat, the best 60s movie. Here is my rating of those movies you mentioned

(Out of 5)
The Deer Hunter = *** 1/2
Midnight Cowboy = *****
Annie Hal = ****
Godfather Part II = ** 2/2

Thanks for your ratings. After having seen Marathon Man (by John Schlesinger too, and also starring Dustin Hoffman), I'm really curious about Midnight Cowboy.

trust me you wont be let down. its alot like Taxi Driver in some respects but better in my view. its Dustin's best performance and like i said..the 60s best offering

PS: I'm off to see The Aviator on Saturday

Better than Taxi Driver? Wow, then I can expect quite a lot.
The Aviator is definetly a great film, a superb direction and excellent actors. I think it is very different from the 'classic' Scorsese-films (if such a thing exists!).

did you watch The Godfather twice in one day??

Oh no, no. That would have been a matter of nearly 6 hours! Actually I watched it twice in february.

P.S.: I watched Don't Look Now twice in one day. Impressive and astonishing.

Seems you're from Germany. Nice to meet a countryman. Mistake me if I'm wrong (who else would watch the newest otto-film).

No, sorry, I'm not from Germany. I'm from Luxembourg, so not that far away. You see... you Germans are not the only one to watch Otto...

Wow, Otto in Luxembourg...
Wouldn't have expected he's famous internationally.

Internationally? Well, OK, let us say Europe-wide (or at least in the German-speaking region). I have got serious doubts whether anyone else here has already heart of Otto Waalkes... :-)

Who knows...
Bully's Schuh des Manitu was distributed internationally, but I don't think it was a success :-)

Really? Wow. Well, I gave it a 5 out of 10. I have seen by far worse films, but it remains stupid however.

BTW, in Luxembourg it was quite a big success too.

april 11's The Naked Gun + La Strada has to be the strangest double feature ever.

Yeah, two very similar films, eh?

Today I've rewatched Citizen Kane and tonight I'm gonna rewatch Plan 9 From Outer Space... :D

Glad to see you liked "The Color of Money." I often get the feeling it kind of is easily dismissed as just a little piece of entertainment. Have you seen "The Hustler"? Probably even better, imho. :)

Nope, haven't seen "The Hustler", but want to see it some day. Scorsese is great, as usual.

Star Wars still got it's power then? as you know it's my least favourite of the ORIGINAL series but i guess maybe i'll watch it again, maybe before i see Revenge of the sith

Yesterday I rewatched that film for the 600th-time or sth. and it never loses its magic. It strikes me again and again with its characters, memorable quotes and scenes and the marvellous Alec Guinness. Wonderful!!!

cool, you've now seen The deer hunter, your thoughts?

Frankly I'm slightly disappointed. OK, the acting is great (especially Meryl Streep) and the film's message strong. Yet I feel Cimino could have made more out of this. The Russian roulette scenes are intense, but I think that another director, like Coppola, would have made them even more striking. Another problem are the movie's epic dimensions. A 'smaller' film with clearer transitions between the different parts is in this case more appropriate. The action is unfocussed, and should have been more concentrated on one single character. Oh well, De Niro's Mike is certainly the protagonist, but somehow it is this character who lacks psychological depth. Apart from these drawbacks, I still like the film, because of some great moments and its strong visual qualities.

fair enough. some good popints there. lol i feel bad now for recommending it :-( i hope Midnight cowboy is more of a success.

You don't have to apologize. It was not a bad movie at all (and by re-reading my comment I think it probably gives that impression). I liked it but with these reservations. And I'd have watched it anyway, also because it is on the American Film Institute's list which i wish to complete.

Angels in America, whats this? and how come you watched it like 10 times??!!

10 times? Lord, no. Angels in America is a TV series of 6 episodes (the numbers in parantheses behind the title indicate the episode/ the title in majuscules giving the rating for the whole thing.). It is about homosexuality and AIDS in the mid-80s. It got 11 Emmys and 5 Golden Globes, and Al Pacino and Meryl Streep star in this. Director is Mike Nichols ("The Graduate"). I was looking forward to it very much, but it let me down. The acting is great, but as a whole (350 min.) it doesn't stick together very well.

ah i see now. i think i got the rating of the film confused with the episodes. i don't think it has aired in the UK yet, the cast sounds great. shame it wasn't very good though, even with the director of the graduate! :-)

Well, if you get the chance, watch it. Considering the imdb-rating of 8.2 and the excellent critics in general, I begin to think that I am maybe the only one, and that my opinion is not very reliable in this case. Probably you'll like it.

So dog day afternoon meet expectations?

Yup, I liked it quite a lot. The film's atmosphere has got sth. that caught me. Thx for recommending it.

it's funny, not long ago you had seen no Scorsese movies, but now he's your fave director it looks like. Me, like with Wes Anderson, i need to find something about the movies of that person that connects with me or that i find different to others around, but sadly IMO Scorsese didn't have that. Scorsese is actually a huge fan of wes anderson, which is funny because there styles are different. Scorsese is more traditional, on the other hand Wes is more of a modern director. Though what i do like alot about Scorsese, is his character study. The characters are very "Rich" and "deep", with focus on Travis Bickle. he had many levels, as did Scorsese's take on Howard hughes. I really wan't to see "Mean Streets" thats on my too see list. I think i should give Scorsese another chance because i am really just basing it on raging bull. Goodfellas is great and so is The Aviator. Taxi Driver is more towards raging bull for me, too dark and depressive.

What are your views on Scorsese? what is it you like about his work.

cya mate!

For a long time (and reasons unknown!) I avoided his films where I just could. But now 16 movies, just this year (with rep. view. of course)...

Today I realized that I had actually seen the beginning of Cape Fear (till the dog is poisoned) many years ago, but I cannot remember the rest of the movie.

My favourite of his remains Taxi Driver, mainly because it is such a complex and fascinating film experience.
Scorsese belongs to a movement I really like: New Hollywood (other directors would be Coppola, Bogdanovich or Spielberg).

However my opinion on Raging Bull is still growing. Believe me, it is NOT dull. Give it another chance. In fact, I don't find it (especially in the end) "pessimistic" or "dark". The direction, the acting, the editing, the screenplay, the cinematography, etc. are all flawless and absolutely fantastic.

Who's That Knocking at My Door?: Scorsese's first "long" film, and IMO very characteristic for his style and way of directing. Yet, this one is rather depressive.

Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore: Lighter than most of Scorsese's usual work, but one recognizes a certain routine (in a positive way) in the direction.

New York, New York: Pretty underrated, but memorable in almost every scene.

After Hours: I still go on recommending this. A dark comedy, a typical Scorsese. Both funny and gritty.

The Color of Money: See Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Paul Newman is really fantastic.

Goodfellas: Great, but overrated, as many people relate to this as Scorsese's best work, which is not true.

Cape Fear: A very interesting mixture of a more classical Hollywood thriller of the late 80s/ early 90s and of Scorsese's personal style.

The Age of Innocence: To date the only film by Scorsese which I didn't like. It is not bad, but overlong. I'll give it most definetly another chance.

Casino: NOT just a simple copy of Goodfellas, but a complex and thrilling film on itself.

Il mio viaggio in Italia: Scorsese really awakened my interest in the Italian neo-realistic film, such as Roma, città aperta or Ladri di biciclett.

The Aviator: By far not as good as Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby (which I highly, highly recommend), but all in all great.

There is one short film (The Big Shave) by Scorsese which I really want to see, as it represents all the two main motives you can find in practically all of his movies: the mirror and the blood.

So, what I like about Martin Scorsese is that he has got his personal style, which is very strongly developped. I also enjoy how he combines certain imagery (religious, historical) with realistic stories set in the 20th-century. I have read quite a lot about his work, and found out that (especially for Taxi Driver or Raging Bull) almost every scene is important and symbolic in his movies. While watching them, you feel this, but it doesn't seem to be 'imposed' or 'forced'.

You'll probably have noticed another change in my mind. It's that about Clint Eastwood. After having seen Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby, I try to see as many of his movies as possible.

So yeah, I guess he is my favourite director, just as Wes Anderson is yours (I hope I'm sure when I say that). In an interview, Scorsese was asked who would be the next Scorsese, and he replied: "Wes Anderson."

The only film I have seen by Wes Anderson is The Royal Tenenbaums (which I did not really like, as you know). And really I cannot find any similarities between The Royal Tenenbaums or Raging Bull. But, perhaps at a second view...

I hope this post was not too long or too boring, but once I am asked about Scorsese, I can't stop talking/ writing. So, thanks for asking.

I don't mind pessimistic or dark films, but I would disagree with the screenplay being called flawless. Didn't you get tired of seeing scene after scene that characterized De Niro as insanely jealous? I could go for some subtlety, myself. However, I do think that Scorsese's contribution to the film was masterful. It was a brilliantly directed movie.

Tired? Really? Raging Bull? Oh no. I think Scorsese/Schrader just chose the best possible way to illustrate LaMotta's jealousy. Subtlety? Well, but LaMotta is really not a subtle guy, isn't he?

No, but I think he could have been portrayed with more subtlety. I'm sure there's more to his character than the film shows, especially because out of the ring, nearly every scene is the same.

I've always had a hard time knowing how to feel about The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Would you mind sharing your thoughts on it?

I think that The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is very typical for the German expressionism. I liked the gritty atmosphere, the original screenplay and decoration, the interesting use of colour and many other 'small' ideas. However I prefer Murnau's Nosferatu all the way, because the story itself is here more elaborated and complex. Also, the characters of Dr. Caligari were pretty one-dimensional. I also read that Dr. Caligari actually represents the almighty rulers/ leaders and Cesare those who obey them without thinking (probably hypnotized, or sth.).
On the rating scale, it would pend between 7 and 8, but I felt that 7 would be too low. (probably I should also think of some changes in my rating system).

I discovered on the Dr. Caligari-DVD that there is a second film by Wiene (a featurette, called Genuine, which lasts 43 minutes). It is the condensed version (the only version currently available). On the one hand, it is a unique occasion (as I'll have to give it back to library very soon), on the other side, I don't know if I'll really bear another 43 minutes of pure German expressionism (and once more, a horror film!).

It was you who liked Murnau's The Last Laugh, right? I just saw that it will be on TV on July 30. So I'll try to catch it.

P.S.: Damn, this rating system is really getting on my nerves. I had the same problem with my rating for Born on the Fourth of July. I was torn between a 5/10 or a 6/10...

Yes, I grossly overrated The Last Laugh when I first saw it, but it's still an incredible film and far better than Nosferatu and right up there with Sunrise.

Did you ever catch The Last Laugh?

No, not yet, but I still have it on tape. So sooner or later I'll watch it.

Ah, Alien is one of my top films of all time; anything less than a "ten" and we may have had words...

;)

Johnny Waco

Yup, plus I saw it this time at midnight, so the atmosphere was just perfect.

BTW, have you seen the director's cut, which came out last year?

No, I haven't seen the director's cut, so now I'm jealous as well! What are some of the changes Scott made to the film?

Johnny Waco

The dream dance sequence was quite a surprise....

There was also a romantic subplot between Ash and a toaster oven.

Haha, that subplot sounds interesting.

But I found Ian Holm pretty scary, as I had never seen him in the role of a bad guy before.

No reason to be jealous as I haven't seen it either. I hoped they'd show the director's cut, but unfortunately they didn't.
