"Children of the Bahnhof Zoo". First movie I ever saw about drug addiction. She falls in love with a junkie and starts doing heroin to be with him. They both become prostitutes, her friend dies of an overdose, a junkie steals her fix in the ladies room and shoots himself up in the neck in front of screaming old lady, and finally has enough after watching her boyfriend getting it up the butt to pay for HER drugs. Nice David Bowie cameo, but I don't remember what song he performed.
Faithful adaptation featuring Warhol star Udo Kier. Artsy erotica.
Basically a NAMBLA wet dream for Latinophiles- unbelievable and pretty stupid on top of that. Not that I'm promoting size-ism or ageism, but this fat old guy was also ugly. But I guess it's easy for gay teenage gangsters to say "I love you" when their sugar daddy is buying their mother a refrigerator and every thing else they want.
Yikes! Passion + Obsession = DEVASTATION.
Great film in every way... Hanna Schygulla is incredible in every Fassbinder film she's done. This one was just a little boring compared to most of their collaborations, but it's still great.
Wonderful first film with decent acting by total unknowns who also went on to do nothing else. Reading about it recently, I learned that Van Sant refused to cast Walt Curtis as himself because people look down on 40 year old men lusting after teen Mexican boys. I thought that was hypocritical of Gus Van Sant. However, I thought Tim Streeter was great and he was attractive, while Curtis was gross, creepy and ugly and to be honest I wouldn't have liked this movie as much. Guess that makes me a hypocrite. On the other hand, it seems there are a lot of successful Hollywood movies where older men sleep with teenage boys (and girls) which I would have thought too disturbing for mainstream audiences. Just goes to show ya!
I really enjoyed this. Probably the best Halloween movie I've ever seen. Something for the whole family. Almost like "Tales From The Darkside" done very well.
The 3 Stooges for the 21st Century. James Franco is really good is just about every thing he is in, and I'd recommend it just because of that. It was really funny, though ridiculous (in a seemingly intended way), and it shows that you don't have to be homophobic to make jokes about homosexuality.
Beautifully filmed; this addition to the franchise met my expectations, but did not exceed them. Anton Yelchin is really going to make a name for himself, or maybe I'm just impressed with the personality he brings to all his roles. If there was any thing likable about Mel Gibson, then he would be something like Sam Worthington (meaning: Sam Worthington gives THAT kind of typecast a good name). The most interesting thing about the Terminator series is that it wasn't just a bunch of "things-go-boom" saga- it seemed like it was always on the verge of revealing some big sophisticated plot. Unfortunately, Salvation has brought it to a stale mate for the time being.
It all starts with a "Gypsy" curse... some day the Rom are going to have enough of a voice to demand that Hollywood cease and desist with their unjust and inappropriate defamation; but until then I'm just going to feel like all these greedy white "victims" deserve every curse that gets tossed at them. Too bad it's not true. Okay, jokes about "political correctness" and reverse discrimination aside... I was told that this was not as bad as it sounded. Unfortunately, it was not as good as I was told. There is some good gory fun and some good fun involving old fashion Satanic terror, but unless you have a sense of humor regarding ludicrous situations, it's just too silly to be scary. But this is Sam Raimi, right? While I enjoyed the humor of "Evil Dead II", it wasn't as funny. Worse thing is, the movie seemed like it wasn't trying to be funny, but was actually trying to be seriously scary. If you watched as many horror films as I have, you will probably find this to be unoriginal and predictable. Still, you should see it just for Lorna Raver's performance as Mrs. Ganush. She really lives up to her name! I also have to admit that this movie shows that horror films with a big enough budget could be amazing.
The most disappointing film of it's type since "Fast Food Nation". Since I already knew all this, it did nothing for me. I should probably be glad that there is a possibility that the nation at large will see it, but of course, VERY few of them will do any thing to change any thing. But the most heart breaking thing was the girl who was being fed fast food burgers and liters of soda, but her family couldn't afford to buy her a pear.
Like "Azumi" and "Death Note", parts of this movie totally fascinate me, while a fairly equal amount doesn't impress me very much. While this movie and those mentioned won't make it to my favorite list, they are still movies I'd recommend for the sake of watching at least once.
I remember being really impressed with the original when I was 12. So, this movie was disappointing.
It's hard to rate this... it was interesting but I remember being a little disappointed by it. However, I read Maxine Hong Kingston's "Tripmaster Monkey" in which a lot is said about this movie and then a day later I find a flyer saying that it is going to play in movie theaters for the first time in like 25, maybe 30 years that weekend. I really liked the short skinny cabalist who had a quetzal feather in his hat that was longer than he was! I should probably see it again.
I'll probably hate it but I have to see it all the same.
It is one of the best movie adaptations of a book I've seen. It is also one of my favorite children's tales. Oh, and the book was written by Jean Cocteau, that should be enough of a reason to watch it.
