Terrance Malick Dir., a good road picture based on a late 50's killing spree through South Dakota, Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek, Warren Oats.

With a haunting score using Schulwerk's "Gassengauer" from "Musica Poetica" preformed by Carl Orff. Speaking of which this has been used in a commercial (I think for insurance), very recently and you'll recognize it when you hear it.

Sounds like a xylophone but I don't think it is.

Yes I've been to all three badlands the most famous one in South Dakota and the Theodore Roosevelt National Memorial Park Badlands  North & South Units in in North Dakota.

However the film never uses the Badlands, its mostly all shot on the high plains and cottonwood bottoms.

never knew there was anything more than just the South Dakota Badlands.

did you happen to stop by the "World famous" Corn Palace while you were in the area?
wow what a tourist trap that place is.

yeah I stopped by wall drug. I tried some of there famous ...(ready?)...water! Grin

there ice cream is nice though especially in the desert heat. Cool

as for Corn Palace...I would imagine the one in Mitchel? I dont think there is another.
Its a complete waste of time. You go in there and its just a flea market. it used to be a hockey arena for whatever reason.
Its like those tourist side attraction you see along the desert rodes every now and again. like...

"see IT!"

ever find this one? Its near California if I remember correctly. then again I'm sure there are more "IT"s to be found.

I was really excited to see this film... but after seeing the thin red line and the new world Terrence Malick has slipped to the top(or bottom depending on how you look at it) of my short list of most hated directors, the guy is like a big baby, I should say writer/director, because his direction isn't what i have a problem with, he just writes the sh***iest movies out there and then decides to direct them. the thin red line is honestly the worst film I've ever seen, I'm all for an anti-war movie, but all that spiritual bull**** and horrendous dialogue I just couldn't take it anymore, I had to laugh at how stupid and pointless it was... not to mention it's the only movie I've ever seen where I wouldn't argue against someone complaining that it was anti-american(I can't say I'd argue any movie really is, but this is the one movie I wouldn't defend)... but that is besides the point, it will be a while before I recover enough from malick's other movies to see badlands... even though it looked interesting before I expected the worst.

Well, gramps, I think you might like Badlands anyway. It was made by Terry Malick, a less pretentious guy than Terrence (he started using the long form of his name when he jumped himself up from screen writer to director). He hung the name "Terrence" on Badlands only after he'd completed it, and thence began his decline....

Yes, Malick's decline into being one of the world's greatest film makers has certainly been alarming.

He shines largely because those about him are so dull.

I'm not, by any means, saying it's a great movie, but I enjoyed it every time I watched it (about 5 times so far). Its flaws are visible to anyone who watches it, yet it also has something that captivates the attention of the viewer with sort of a raw, undefined, unpretentious aroma. The best thing is that it never tries to figure out any protagonist, nor judge it, yet everything worth knowing about character psychology creeps alone out of the picture.


7.5/10

This is very true, appart from the "unpretentious" part. It's only unpretentious compared wiith Malick's following works; but by that standard, everything in the world in unpretentious.
