Jodorowsky's Dune

first and foremost....i am so happy i got a chance to see this in the theater

an empty theater at that.....there was one other person at the beginning of the film and he walk about 10 minutes into it...perhaps he thought it actually was the movie

a documentary about the pre-production of what could have been one of the greatest films of all time....obviously written and directed by the crazy acid head surrealist Alejandro Jodorowsky....set and character designs by H.R. Giger, Dan O'Bannon, and Jean "Moebius" Giraud....set to star in it were David Carradine, Mic Jager, Salvador Dali, Orson Wells....with a soundtrack by both pink Floyd and Magma

what the hell could go wrong?

it's a real shame that this film was never made....as i'm sure it would have been amazing....just watching a documentary about made me feel like i was on acid

the good news is that Jodorowsky has said that he feels the VERY* detailed storyboards should and most likely will be turned into an animated feature....still really only a glimmer of what could have been

obviously a great film for fans of sci fi, the film making process, and fucking insane hippies who are trying to make a movie that is seriously 40 years out of time

highly suggest this one

*literally every shot he planned has it's own story board....this guy took "ambitious" to a whole new level

Oculus was excellent! Really refreshing directing for a horror movie, and it was really successful at remaining genuinely unsettling throughout.

Was it really? I am worried to see it because I have been hearing negative things about it. I'm always up for supernatural thrillers though.

So I may still give it a go.
Fame, fortune, power, titties. People say these are the most crucial things in life, but you can have a pocket full o' gold and it doesn't mean sh*t if you don't have someone to share that gold with. Seems simple. Yet it's an important lesson to learn. Even lone wolves run in packs sometimes.

What about Toshiro Mifune? He's a great actor.

Been watching some cable recently (HBO) catching up on all the movies i've missed.

Now you see me

Entertaining flick but also incredibly stupid.
Midway through the movie i had already figured out the plot twist in the end but it was interesting to internally weed out the suspects but ofc it was the detective.. he was the biggest misdirection in the act.


42 is a movie about Jack Robinson the first negro player to be accepted in the MLB.
It's based on a true story that's not so true cause the dialogue in that movie is too modern.
Yea they deal with racism and illustrate the ignorance of it but it's done through the mindset we have now.

it's like the main characters on the movie are in on the joke, they simply know too much.

instead of showing what really happened they showed what is ideally supposed to happen to plug some anti-racism message.

It's been a few years since I saw a Kirosawa movie, so I don't particularly remember how good he may or may not have been, but old movie dialogue generally turns me off (cheesy and hammy), good acting or not, so I may be biased against him just because of that.

The last movie I've seen was My Little Princess Eva Ionesco. The best advantage of this movie is that it is autobiographical.

Violetta is raised by her grandmother. Her mother Hanna tries to make a living on taking photographs and concentrates on her dreams to become a famous artist. In order to succeed as an artist she doesn't worry about dating men of questionable reputation. Only every now and then her mother visits her daughter but during these occasions it occurs to her that her daughter could be a potential model. She starts exploiting her daughter who by transforming into a kind of Lolita becomes increasingly alienated from other children of her age. At school she is eventually frequently insulted and rejected.Then Mamie dies and Hannah's photographs are about to unequivocally overstep the line of acceptability. Hanna even coerces Violetta mercilessly into cooperation by withholding her food in case she doesn't agree to pose for increasingly daring photographs.
