I prefer the old fashioned contrasting colors for film. Black and white.

The movie Traffic uses this to great affect. A lot of the scenes in Washington are blue, the ones in Tijuana are yellow/orange, and then everything in San Diego is normal / non-hued.

It was meant to be more about whether people here are actually bothered by it.
I've been reading about this topic for some time now, but always considered it one of those typical overblown internet "controversies".
But lately I've seen several movies where it was so overdone, that it really got bothersome. I don't even remember what movies those were, but the blueness and orangeness really stuck in my head.

Nah, it was more along the lines of "Hey, cool, I've read that one too".

I tried watching those back when I worked at Hollywood video but I was only sort of paying attention to what was going on in Blue, got about halfway, realized I had no idea what was going on and decided it wasn't worth it to go back.

Anyways, I got baked and watched this last night



Wizards (1977)

The only other Ralph Bakshi work I've seen has been Fritz the Cat (1972) so I kind of knew what I was geting into with this, but I am still amazed this movie was only rated PG. People are getting shot with arrows, there's Nazi symbolism all over the place, a fairy pretty much has her tits out on full display, and just a bunch of other things you wouldn't expect from a PG rated film. Outside of that, what did I thinK? Eh, pretty much the same feeling from Fritz the Cat, an interesting concept and some cool imagery and themes, but not enough there to make it a full fledged classic and something I'd recommend to everyone. Still, I'm glad I saw it and I will probably watch his version of The Lord of the Rings and call it a day with his work, unless anyone has something else from him they think I absolutely need to see.

If... (1968)



Binging on Malcolm McDowell's early roles, next on the list is O Lucky Man! Can't help but notice the similarities between his early characters, which certainly isn't a bad thing, it's why I love watching him act, but holy **** do his roles in If..., A Clockwork Orange, and Caligula feel closely related. He frequently has this ambitious madness to him, always has this dangerously confident look in his eyes, eager to instigate total uninhibited chaos, regardless of whether or not it destroys him. You see it in all three films and I won't be surprised if it's in O Lucky Man!

Try checking out the late 70s flick "Time After Time" to see his totally vulnerable side.

Also cool for a very young Mary Steenburgen.

The gap between how terrible this film's idea sounds and how enjoyable it actually turns out to be, is incredible.
