Capping the night with "Superman Doomsday", and so far, it's pretty terrible.

I wanna support the comeback of Sizemore as much as I can, I guess just not as much as BobClark.
Not the worst thing I've ever seen, by far. But my spare time is precious these days. If I'm going to devote it to a shitty horror movie I expect the star power to keep it interesting. Is this the movie Sizemore made while they were filming his reality show? I feel like the next time he goes through the 12 step program he's gonna owe me an apology.

Well for Sizemore, the action is the juice.

400 Blows - last night.

I've got M for next time I get a chance. Both for the first time.
post #106 of 12659
I've got "Kentucky Fried Movie" coming tonight form Netflix- worth it?
post #107 of 12659
When I was a kid I loved it. Silly as fuck. Don´t know if it still holds up though. I would give it a shot again if I will get my hands on it.
post #108 of 12659
I love it, but I wonder how many of the gags will makes sense to someone who didn't grow up in the '70s.
post #109 of 12659
For possibly tonight or Saturday I am going to watch El Topo for the first time.
post #110 of 12659
Wow El Topo for the first time? It's the original WTF? movie. Stayed in my head for weeks after and never really left. That being said I passed it on to a lot of my friends who just didn't get it. Big yes from me on it though. Enjoy.
post #111 of 12659
Pass the bong, Mental Weapon.
post #112 of 12659
I'm about to watch to 2 screener dvds which both contain an episode of "Masters of Horror", yay or nay?

Yes, well, worth the 15 bucks I paid for it...have you seen Top secret? if not check it out as well..good stuff. I have yet to see the Fountain, how good is it? and damn what about the work print of Blade Runner? anyone? anyone?

Depends on the episodes. Stuart Gordon's are decent, with his Black Cat being the best of the bunch.
post #115 of 12659
Watching Angel Heart later.

Boo or Huzzah?!

The episodes are: THE WASHINGTONIANS & WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.
post #117 of 12659
Didn't see The Washingtonians, but is Peter Medak really a "Master of Horror"?
post #118 of 12659
Didn't Medak direct one of the Species movies?

Holy Mountain is better, I think.
post #119 of 12659
I'm hoping my DVR will be up again (we've had like 30 inches of snow in the last week and it's knocked my dish out). I've got a four day weekend and a ton of stuff on the DVR. Highlights include Killer of Sheep, Skiddo, Stalag 17, a couple of war movies from the 40s, The War of the Roses, and 3 Days of the Condor. I also have The Hours borrowed from a friend.

A bit of both. I didn't really like it much, but it's got it's merits. It's a supernatural detective story, but it's only scary in fits and starts, and it's not entirely engaging as a mystery. Mickey Rourke is pretty good in it, but don't look for a lot of De Niro- he only has a couple of scenes.

Netflix, what the fuck? Running three days late on Kentucky Fried Movie. I do love Top Secret, hoping for more of the same here. And I think you'll love the shit out of The Fountain, I've seen it twenty times and I never tire of it.

I went into The Fountain with several rave reviews echoing in my ears and found it underwhelming. It has some really cool bits though and Rachel Weisz is a vision.

The Blade Runner workprint is my favorite version, although its impact has been lessened over time. When I first saw it, there were no other versions without the voice-over.
post #122 of 12659
I haven't gotten around to watching the workprint without the commentary yet. I'd rather just watch the big chunk of alternate takes/deleted scenes again, personally.

I'm about to watch Carlito's Way dubbed in Spanish, without the subtitles, and I don't even know Spanish. Just for the hell of it.
post #123 of 12659
Watching Confessions of a Superhero right now. Holy shit, this movie is depressing.

No, but it already sounds tempting.

I can vouch for The Matrix Reloaded being a fucking riot in espanol.

¡Senor Anderson!

Try it some time.
post #127 of 12659
I just watched Hitman and regret it.
I'm about to watch 30 days of night.

Opinions?

You won't regret it, but you'll both rue and lament it.
post #129 of 12659
Its ruined by some truly idiotic moments and decisions. Looks good though.
post #130 of 12659
I am about to watch Once that I just bought due to the chewers. Listen, I m going in with a mind more open than Lindey Lohan's legs, but consider me not a big fan of slow accoustic guitar music. It is not that I hate it, just that I am indifferent to it and never get a chance to listen to it. I don't mind if it is good though. I do need a chance to mellow out and let my heart be touched by moving music. This is due to being a devoted listener of underground hip-hop (MF Doom, J Dilla, Jedi Mind, Wu-Tang, Aesop Rock, Cannibus, MF Grimm, Danger Doom, Jemini), and equally of absolutely insane death, black, doom, and viking metal (Mastodon, Amon Amarth, Decapitated, Cannibal Corpse, Nile,Psycroptic), with a thirst for Classical (Mozart ,Beethoven etc.) as well as techno, house, punk, classic rock (beetles, the who, rolling stones), Soul, Blues, R&B,Funk, world/ethnic (Nusrat Fateh Ali-Khan) music, religious music (not Christian rock, but gregorian chant, sufi music, buddhist chant).

I am ready to indulge in more forms of music. Will I enjoy this movie as the music is half of it? I know you are thinking, all this and not much slow guitar music? I have not gotten to it!!

I also have to watch Chinatown for the first time, and Army of Shadows.

Is the 400 blows worth watching?
post #131 of 12659
Got a sunday all to myself so Im thinking of giving Kairo (Pulse) a shot. Recommended to me by some chewers in chat actually...they kinda sorta almost warned me about watching it, as if it was dangerous or something. Hoping my sunday wont bummer out on me.
post #132 of 12659
You should watch Chinatown right now.

Anyway, I just watched Little Miss Sunshine, and I was surprised I liked it as much as I did. Definitely a "watch on cable a lot" movie.

Trying to debate right now about starting up Das Boot Director's Cut, Woodstock DC, or Jackie Brown.
post #133 of 12659
I had a real urge to watch Jackie Brown just last night- go with that one.
post #134 of 12659
I saw that someone had already mentioned El Topo and Holy Mountain. I had seen El Topo late last year, but I am really curious about Holy Mountain now, as it is sitting in its box next to me, silently judging my hesitation.

How balls-out crazy is it? I am guessing a one billion kiloton explosion of lunacy.

Wooooooooooo boy.

Just pop it in. Don't listen to a word we say.

My night got 200% more interesting. Con Air on cable.
post #138 of 12659
For anyone interested, TCM is giving Lawrence of Arabia at 1:00 PM on Sunday March 2nd.

Love how TCM throws in the Overture & Intermission when they play that - they did the same with Dr. Zhivago last week...
post #140 of 12659
Big Nothing (2006) Simon Pegg's on the cover holding a big fucking gun, looking crazy as hell. I was thinking of renting it. Does it bring the funny?
post #141 of 12659
Ok, AVP-R

Wish me luck!

I came very close to watching that - it was on here too, but Die Hard was also on at the same time, so that won out.

Going to be re-watching The Dead Pool when I get home tonight.
post #143 of 12659
Watching "Brainscan", then segueway into Monte Hellman's "The Shooting".
post #144 of 12659
Which three hour opus should I watch first, Das Boot Director's Cut or Woodstock Director's Cut? Keep in mind that I don't currently have any drugs.

The other options are rewatching Adaptation or Casablanca, neither of which I've seen for a while. And the first season of the Sopranos.
post #145 of 12659
Tati, Don't do it...AVP-R is so horrible that it makes AVP seem like an Acadamy Award Winner. I think AVP-3 should feature the Aliens and Predators teaming up to hunt the Fox Executives who gave the greenlight to the Aliens VS Predator: Requiem Script.

Oh god, Tati, I'm so, so sorry. Did you make it through in one piece?
post #147 of 12659
Rath, watch Das Boot if you haven't seen it before in any version, just because it's so great. Watch Woodstock if you're in the mood for some great rock or just feeling hippy-ish. If you have no idea, I suggest Woodstock, for the Scorsese touch.
post #148 of 12659
I'm probably going to watch "The Hours" tonight, which I haven't seen.

Tomorrow from Netflix, I have Z, Brute Force (Jules Dassin goes to prison!), Midnight Run, Alien Nation, The Long Goodbye, Night Moves, and The Times of Harvey Milk coming. Any votes on which one of those should take top priority?
post #149 of 12659
Baring a fuck-up from the mailman, I'm going to watch Heart of Darkness after waiting who knows how many months from Netflix.
post #150 of 12659
Midnight Run is the most fun. Long Goodbye is probably the best overall.
