You've really been going for it. I agree with a fair amount of your ratings, but I totally disagree with Beetlejuice. What an absolute classic. How you find it annoying is beyond me?

my name is bruce - i really loved the idea of bruce campbell playing a fictional version of himself, where he's asked to fight a demon on the strenght of his b-movie roles alone. but as much as the idea is amusing, you really need to write some story and really good jokes to make the 75 minutes interesting. meh/10

Jeff Who Lives At Home - 7.4/10 Damn good. Jeff's day out from his mum's basement, goes out and reconnects and meets his destiny.

This Means War - 4/10 Worse than the reviews would have you believe, the film had too many lame elements across the spectrum.

Pusher (2012) - 6/10 Delivered just what I expected. Pretty entertaining. Worth a watch. The original was a grimey tale of despair, this is a bit more upbeat (the colours are brighter).

network - 8/10

ed wood - 8/10

yes and yes. Fucking great films. I'd probably give Network a 10 for the writing alone.

 

Anyone here seen The Master? I'm watching it tonight. Also, I really want to watch Enter the Void.

Looper - 7/10

 

Fun movie. Not much more.

I was terrified of seeing a train wreck knowing Joseph GL was basically going to be doing a Bruce Willis impersonation for 2 hours, but it surprisingly kinda worked.

We could debate holes on the script, but whatever. The blood made up for it. Plus, it was a time travel movie. There are almost always going to be issues.

V/H/S

 

garbage

 

Looper

 

Pretty fucking good, actually. The makeup on Joseph Gordon Levitt was kinda odd, but I was surprised at how good the acting was. The middle portion at the farmhouse was like a totally different film (in a good way). I liked that they actually created a filthy future. You don't see that enough in films dealing with futuristic settings.

I just got back from Looper and yeah, it was totally party.

The Fountain - 8/10

 

Enjoyed it, very pleasing on the eyes - you gotta have an open mind to watch it though. just think of it as eye candy. It doesn't have a complex storyline or anything.

bit quirky. didn't personally like the actor that plays the wife but that's just me

      Title says it all: post a still, others guess.

      So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film).
       
      Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake.
       
      Here is a list of their films:
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris
       
      What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines...
       
      No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best)..
       
      In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc).
       
      In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems
       
      I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others.

      Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this?
       

       
      p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch).
       
      p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

      Josh Cooley has a book coming out featuring famous scenes from R-rated movies in the style of children's books. Really cool stuff!

      Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this.
       
      If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best.
       
      Thanks a lot!
       
      PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game

      Didn't see a post about this when I searched, so I thought I'd mention it. Back in October, Biosphere posted the silent film 'Man With A Movie Camera' to Youtube complete with his score and I only just found it. I have the 2cd set of Substrata that includes this, but I hadn't seen the movie with the score synced up before. It's really awesome how parts of the music act as sound for what's going on in the film. For example, the sample 'sorry to wake you' coincides with a woman waking up. And the various spectral sounds that seem like part of the music when you listen to the score by itself turn out to be foley for machines and trains when you watch the movie.
       
      There is a brief childbirth scene, so you might get a bit grossed out, but this is balanced out by the cute topless Soviet woman giving herself a mud bath. Kind of racy for 1929.
