I also forgot to mention I watched The Great Train Robbery and Trip To The Moon on YouTube tonight. Very interesting in an odd way.


Ah those are wonderful!

There must be a rule in the film professor's handbook that implores them to make their students watch those two back to back, as I too watched them in a class in the same manner.


The scifi is the better of the two I believe. Technically and artistically.
The western is great too though.

Both of them are interesting. I thought the Melies film was rather bizarre, but that's by its nature. The version I watched had narration and my favorite line went "One of the council members violently disapproved, so the President threw his books at his head." Cheesy

and if anyone is in band (concert or other) give me call too. I wanna post a video of last year's marching band feild show. you'd like it groggy, its a middle eastern/desert theme where we play music from Laurence of Arabia, the wind and the lion, and the mummy.

You lucky beep! That is so awesome.

This year I did an Intro to Performance class and another thing I got kicked out for reasons I can't understand, but for the moment I'm done acting. The Pitt Theatre Department seems to want to screw me over. Tongue

Glad there's another theater guy around here Atlas - I feel like less of a dweeb! Afro

Hey, I actually was in a theatre group once, but we split before premiere... and now I don't have time for similar things anymore. Though maybe I'd find it if they told me they were starting again... Roll Eyes

Across the Pacific (1942) - 7/10
I think there's a rather obvious reference to this movie in OUATIA, in the opening three toughguys searching for Noodles in the Chinese theater. In this one it's a movie theater (but at least Japanese, I think) and no, Bogie isn't smoking anything stronger than tobacco but IMO the reference is obvious. That is also the best scene in this movie and the point where it gets more than moderately interesting. Before that the movie is about 6/10 but then it picks up the pace. Too bad the theater scene didn't appear an hour earlier Undecided

Metropolis (1980's re-cut of 1927 version) - 2.5/10
One of the worst piles of garbage I've had to sit through in a LONG time. Oh god, they sure butchered a superb film.

Atonement - Not sure how to rate this just yet, either a 7 (very good) or 8 (great). It's right on the threshold. The story was interesting, performances were uniformly solid and there were some great scenes, but the movie dragged in spots and some of its stylistic choices annoyed me. Still, a very entertaining movie, and one hell of a killer ending.

Blade Runner (1982) 10/10

Pure atmospheric brilliance. I haven't seen this film in awhile and I forgot just how great it is. It's absolutely amazing on all levels.

It was an old VHS tape. Don't worry, it's not out on DVD.

Get the Keno release for DVD.

Blade Runner - 8/10 - Very good movie. I won't put it on my top 25 but it's one of the best sci-fi I've seen. And for once I actually like Harrison Ford in a movie!

I've only seen bladerunner once and i have a pretty similar opinion about this film as groggy, although i have a strange urge to re-watch it. My guess is that its the kinda of movie that, on the first viewing, have you wrapped up in the visuals and on multiple viewing gets to you on a another level.
