Blade Runner (2019): The Final Cut (again)
Someday I hope to see the sequel...
Wonder Woman, and that was at the theater. We don't watch many movies - mostly TV series. A LOT of TV series.
Pretty good adaption of one my favorite books (and i usually don't like horror books or movies). Slightly modernized (the original story takes place in the 50s) and some things have been changed (mainly due to budget reasons i hear) but the overall feel of the story, the friendships in The Loser's Club and the horror of Pennywise was very well captured (especially Pennywise.. kudos to the actor for coming up with his own brilliant version instead or recreating Tim Curry).
Stil can't say I understand it, but today I ordered the OST ... Badalamenti at his best
ETA: It's gonna cost me a fortune and be en route for at least a month, I was informed.
Just saw Happy Death Day.. for the second time. I highly recommend.
At home where I'm the only lolly: "Mars Attacks!"
In the theater along with the other suckers: "Star Wars The Force Awakens"
I saw Thor Ragnarok with my son last Friday. Good fun!
Dusted off a 'classic' from the video archive last night ....
Basically a good flick. Lots of good humor.
Last weekend Monkey Business, the week before that Animal Crackers.
I'm making my way through The Marx Brothers Silver Screen Collection blu-ray set.
If you like the Marx Brothers, both Groucho and Harpo wrote autobiographies that I really recommend. They were both very enlightening about them, their upbringing and their personal lives. Groucho wrote a few more books that are pretty funny, too.
Harpo Speaks! ? I definitely have considered finding a copy.
They really were an amazing family. And VERY intelligent.
And talented. I wished we could've somehow had Harpo on harp, Chico in piano and Larry Fine on violin. That woulda been a nice, if odd, trio.
I've been on a Lynch runthrough (including S1-3 of Twin Peaks) and MD holds up beautifully I think. I believe it would have made a fantastic TV show if it had been given the chance. It's utterly remarkable that Lynch was able to re-edit and shoot 40 minutes more material to make it "complete".
Like it all of his stuff it's as much about how it makes you feel as what is "going on", plus in this case a fascinating indictment of the Hollywood system to boot. Badalamenti's score is a huge piece of the MD puzzle, and combined with Lynch's sound design, makes for something haunting, creepy and beautiful.
I've only got Inland Empire left on rewatch. I recall seeing it at the cinema on opening day here in the UK and deeming it the creepiest film I'd ever seen, with its endless creeping dread. Didn't understand a jot of it but was mesmerized by it.
Enjoy the score!
The funny thing is Harpo never learned how to properly play the harp. He did it his own way. Chico also did his own thing on the piano. At one point before their fame, he got a job playing piano in a place, but only new one song, so he had to keep playing it over and over again.
At a cinema: Rogue One
At home: The Equalizer
