Boogie Nights, 1997 Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Heather Graham, John C.Reilly, Don Cheadle, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Drama/Indie. In San Fernando Valley in 1977, teenage busboy Eddie Adams (Wahlberg) gets discovered by porn director Jack Horner (Reynolds), who transforms him into adult-film sensation Dirk Diggler. Brought into a supportive circle of friends, including fellow actors Amber Waves, (Moore) Rollergirl (Graham), Reed Rothchild (Reilly) Dirk fully all his ambitions, but a toxic combination of drugs and egotism threatens to take him back down.
I love this film. I've watched it many times since its been released. Nichole Ari Parker who plays Becky Barnett is absolutely gorgeous with her sassy, chatty attitude. I I can't take my eyes of her when shes on screen. Anyway, this movie is very entertaining and the cast is just full of some my favorite actors. You sometimes don't know how bizarre it's going to be from scene to scene. Many subplots keep this film interesting and although the out come is somewhat predictable it's worth it when get there and you find it all comes full circle at the end. A v

It was a cool movie and was surprise it was funded by Steven's Amblin while the F/X was LucasArts.

If anything to nitpick, they should have shifted to Count Dracula's point of view from time to time, to show how he suffers if he doesn't feed for example, or even as he stalked his next meal. That instead of keeping him in the dark shadows all the time.

Image (1981)

Very loosely based on Greek Mythology. Ray Harryhaussen was an effects artist specializing in stop motion, since the early 1950's. Most of his films were low budget schlock, but were fondly remembered. Some even influential. By 1981, ILM had revolutionized the FX industry and Ray was out of a job. So, he was given a proper sendoff with a properly funded film, and an all-star cast. Its the best stop-motion animation he'd ever done.


Trailer

All of the elements are there, for this to be something really special. But it's a flawed, though well-meaning, film. The effects clearly were a labor of love, but were often very awkward. Living actors and animals were interchangeable with their stop-motion doubles and it's jarring, at times. Some of the story, though easy to follow, is clunky and odd. But the production values were top notch. Very professional. Again, its heart is in the right place, and if I didn't love mythology so much, there's no telling how I'd rate this film. Corn Gold, probably. Classy and cheesy, all at the same time ...


Bubo Talk

Bubo, the robot owl, is perceived as an R2-D2 callback. I thought enough of it to name my pet cockatiel after him, though. My Bubo was less my feathered friend and more a feathered prick! Little bastard didn't appreciate anything I did for him, and I do miss him. But the original Bubo is owned by a godess played by Mick Fleetwood's late sister, Susan Fleetwood. Very charming, and a lovely presence in the film ...

At the time I worked at Media Play it was located in my downtown city shopping mall, the mall was on its last legs standing. Our store usually was dead and a lot people that would come in just wanted to rob the place. We the staff were the security. We were young and it was fun, but man you couldn't get away the stuff we did then nowadays. We're lucky we didn't get stabbed or shot.

I re-watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes over the weekend. I love the movie, but wow--some of the CGI doesn't look so great now.
Not quite as bad as the monkey in Jumanji, but still.....pretty bad. I had to remind myself a couple of times not to let it distract me.

Then yesterday I re-watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the effects were much better. I guess big advancements had been made in the 3 years from 2011-2014.

Not entirely related but I really wish Matt Reeves had directed all three movies.

Absolutely love Dawn and War, but tend to skip Rise more often than not. Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson, in particular, were stupid good in War.

War is excellent.
I had hoped to re-watch all 3 over the weekend, but didn't make it. Now I wish I'd watched them in reverse order.
None of this "saving the best for last" BS! When I try to do things that way, I never get to 'the best'!

But yes...hopefully I'll get to see War again in the next day or two.

We are the league. A documentary about Anti-Nowhere League, a band made famous by Metallica covering their song "So What?" I had no idea they lasted that long and had contacts with Stewart Copeland and Robert Plant. Thought they were just one of the early 80s punk bands that went nowhere. Surprisingly well done talking heads doc given the subject matter. It's up on youtube by the way.

I saw, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3", tonight! It's a good movie though maybe they should have called it, "My First Greek Family Reunion", instead as the wedding couple isn't even the focus! The bride Stephanie Nur, is hot!

It's basically a Hallmark channel movie with a naughty apron and nude beach scene thrown in.

Finished Das Boot (1981) last night, the 3+ hour version. It was quite an experience. First time watching the movie, after seeing the music video all the time on local mtv back in the day. They don't make movies like these anymore.

💎 DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (1971) on Image

First James Bond film I ever saw, seen during its original theatrical run. I recall from that experience, my Father being obviously overtly tense as it was only a matter of time before he'd be deploying to ‘Yankee Station’, on yet another ‘combat cruise’; in supporting the government's latest objectives (& ‘Operation Linebacker II’), in the Vietnam War. In being a child, I was rather overly amused ‘Tiffany Case’ wound herself overboard (off-the-side of an oilrig platform & into the ocean); in a failed attempt to cover for OO7 with a spread of machinegun fire. Just as nearly the rest of our shared audience itself did, but not my Father; in making a point it wasn't funny, not only that, vowing to eventually rectify my ignorantly poor perception, someday. In retrospectively making it, the most important movie I'd ever attend in my entire life; in that, it would perhaps lend itself into even saving my own life. A handful of years later, he'd be teaching me the importance of learning to properly defend myself; whether I liked it or not, even with a wide variety of firearms, including ‘automatic weapons’. And like as he'd a frontline solider, yet in reality, his one n’ only daughter; in spite of all my fierce objections.

Outside that, there are all kinds of details that'd trigger sentimentalism; in concerning this particular entry. A time capsule snapshot of a Las Vegas of times past, even the stuffed animal dog ‘Tiffany Case’ won at ‘Circus, Circus’; I once won myself playing a different game (before the film was made). My (late ‘70s to early ‘80s) open-relationship boyfriend coincidentally owned a nearly identical ‘Ford Mustang MACH I’, with the same paint (onscreen it was a ‘71 model); just for a couple examples. Its theme song was a memorable one; a Shirley Bassey/“Goldfinger” encore. Casting-wise, I thought Jill St. John made for one of the better ‘Bond Girls’; she'd have herself a romantic fling with Sean Connery, during principal photography. Just as a cheating Lana Wood playing ‘Plenty O'Toole’ at the beginning of the production briefly did, with whoever else that'd opportunistically throw themselves at Sean.

A trivia tidbit I found oddly Southern: Sean kept calling its screenwriter ‘boyo’. Also, according to its screenwriter, he had Paul Williams in mind to play one of the ‘gay couple’ assassins. Paul was so offended, suspecting they only wanted him for the novelty he was ‘little people’; disparagingly, made his character a homosexual on-top of it. A retrospective onscreen response supposedly can be heard spoken, in Brian De Palma's “Phantom of the Paradise”. In preaching to the choir, I'd too ‘ill-manneredly’ offended Paul myself (as a teen); drunkenly informing him, he was my favorite munchkin seen-on-TV.

The final time Sean Connery would reprise his role, for the founders of Eon Productions, Albert & Harry. Sean would only once more play OO7; in the roguishly unofficial remake of “Thunderball”, in “Never Say Never Again”. He'd trail behind Roger's “Octopussy” in a 1983 ‘Battle of the Bonds’. Jill St. John marked the inaugural portrayal of an ‘American actress’ as a lead ‘Bond Girl’; one characterized stereotypically American. Sean's Eon swan song was the first time a screen actor commanded n’ bestowed ‘a million bucks’ (1.25-mil.); in appearing, in what would become known as a franchise film.

Regardless of its weak points, also at least one glaringly unforgivable failure at suspending disbelief, along at common sense; it’s a chord that vibrates eternally. ‘Bond films’ have been reflectively representative of sparkles of my life; since the unbroken theatrical tradition began for me, back in ‘72.

My Beautiful Laundrette, 1986 Daniel Day-Lewis, Gordon Warnecke, Rita Wolf, Saeed Jeffrey. Romance/Drama. In a seedy corner of London, Omar (Warnecke) a young Pakistani, is given a rundown laundromat by his Uncle (Jeffrey), who hopes to turn it into a successful business. Soon after, Omar is attacked by a group of racist punks, but defuses the situation when he realizes their leader is his former lover, Johnny (Day-Lewis), the men resume their relationship and rehabilitate the laundromat together, but various social forces threaten to compromise their success.
This is a fantastic film. It has so much going on and is very fast paced, energetic and exciting. The subplots are sad and funny with certain characters. The film is about not going for stereotypes and living the way you are and making the most of your situation and learning the most you can about others faults and hang ups. Hanif Kureishi was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay. Daniel Day-Lewis received the award for Best supporting actor from the US National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

I just got in from seeing, "Blue Beetle", tonight! Really, very good movie to go check out!

Surprised, Journey didn't score the sountrack for this, so hopefully they do the next one!

And I mean New Music, not rehashed old stuff!

Bruna Marquezine, who plays Jenny Kord, also auditioned for the part of Supergirl in "The Flash".

Opps, Forgot to mention, "Blue Beetle", as two End Credits scenes.

The first one reveals something of major significance. The other is obvisiously a nod to, "The Puppetoons", movies from the 1930's-40's, but I'm not sure of the significance yet.

Great cast, genuinely funny and the kids in it aren't annoying (unless they're purposefully meant to be).

F/X 2 (1991). What a lousy sequel to such a great movie. There are action/suspense scenes, which are great, if a little silly. And then there's the rest of the movie with a hard to follow plot and new characters that keep falling into it. The way the original ends pretty much eliminates any possibility of the main characters coming back to their previous lives in the States, yet there they are, back in New York, with slightly altered professions - Bryan Brown doing expensive techno toys instead of movie special effects and Brian Dennehy becoming a PI - all after stealing a bunch of money from a mafia informant and department of justice supervisor that they stole themselves and killing a bunch of people in the process. It's directed by the Australian king of sequels Richard Franklin. He directed better sequels. I think it's purely on the screenplay, it's not very well thought out. It appears that everybody tried to make the best of it.

The Keep 1983

A dreamlike supernatural horror flick written and directed by Michael Mann. Soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Very cool flick.

Has many poor reviews from imbeciles who don’t know dick from shit.

Manhunter is really good, highly recommended if you haven’t already seen it. There’s multiple cuts, which makes it fun for the cult following.

Agreed. Prefer to Silence actually. Cox is better than Hopkins.

Same. I agree—he’s more believable, not so comical.

The soundtrack isn’t too shabby either.

Yes. Love that kind of music. Same with Thief and Tangerine Dream.

Watched this and X a couple of days ago. Nothing to write home about, but definitely a lot of fun. I like X a little bit more than Pearl.
The last scene of Pearl holding that smile through the credits was one of the more uncomfortable things I'd seen in quite some time.

So, do you think she’s hot or not?

Sorry, I meant Mann's film Thief and the soundtrack by Tangerine Dream.

Oh damn, I was all set to watch that not too long ago but ended up crashing out and ultimately forgot. Thanks for reminding me! Hopefully it’s still streaming. I’m one of those people who has to own a physical copy, so I might as well just buy it because I love pretty much everything I’ve seen from Mann.

Yeah, me and my wife were trying to figure out if she’s hot or not. Kind of weird. No eyebrows. She looks pretty good riding that dude in X, tho.

Might be Mann's best film actually. I am sure you can buy cheap and you will not be disappointed. I hope his new film delivers.

Had no idea he was making a new flick. Thanks for the heads up.

Fitzcarraldo by Werner Herzog with Klaus Kinski. This movie is like Friedkin's Sorcerer only with a boat and opera instead of trucks and dynamite. Great movie. I'm gonna have to check out other non-documentaries of Herzog from back then.
