Broadway Danny Rose (1984) - 6/10

any reason for the low rating?

I love this movie, just curious to hear your thoughts.

As usual, you're nuts. The running gag with the television is hilarious. And that ending with the deer--precious beyond belief. This is kitsch raised to art (only Agnes Varda, in Le bonheur, has been able to match it).

 Shocked Yikes, Jenkins. You're one of them. Clearly, there's no hope for you. Undecided

I more or less agree with you on The Paradine Case, although my rating was a lot more generous (I think I gave it a 5 or 6). I will say that the first hour or so has some interesting moments - Peck's obsession with Alida Valli seems to pre-figure Vertigo, but then there's Ann Todd... And I like Charles Laughton. And there are some camera moves I like, the deep-focus tracking shot when Louis Jourdan enters the court-room most notably. That's about all the praise that I'm willing to dish out, except that it doesn't quite reach the Stygian depths of boredom attained by Torn Curtain.

I don't know, IMO it just isn't that great. It isn't extremely funny, eventhough it's got its funny moments, and the ending is kinda "easy". But I still enjoyed it, especially the style. I could maybe give it 7/10...

[Rec] (2007) - 5/10
Not extremely original or even scary.

********Spoilers for Broadway Danny Rose**********

I disagree with your assessment of the ending, it's perfectly tragic. He finally sticks up for himself but sacrfices his heart, optimism and a possible shot at love. I can't think of too many films that punishes the clumsy, loveable pushover for finally standing up for himelf.

Torn Curtain at least has a nice, messy on-screen murder.

The good things in TPC pre-figure similar things done better in later films. Had Selznick not screwed up the editing, this film would have made a nice trilogy, stylistically speaking, with Rope and Under Capricorn. It's not well constructed, however. The lack of any secondary plot, for example, really hurts the story. And while there are some good performances (Charles Laughton, as you say, especially while on the bench) other potentialities are simply thrown away. Having a bewigged John Williams sitting beside Gregory Peck for almost half the movie, completely mute, is such an insane waste. The sets looked good, though.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

The casting of Gregory Peck is baffling too. He is just plain wrong for the part.

I felt it to be something of a one trick pony myself but the final 10 minutes in the penthouse is really great!

6/10


I won't even bother with the American remake.

Wall-E a bit longish, still impressive, if seen at the cinema. 8\10

Paisan - 6.9/10
Now that I've finally got to see it, I'm a bit underwhelmed, but pretty good nonetheless. I'm sure the fact that it has one of the worst transfers I've ever seen doesn't help the score either.

Metallica:Some Kind of Monster 8/10

Wish they had the entire Dave Mustaine and Lars Ulrich meeting instead of the 10 minutes.

Wasn't the whole thing on the extras? I found it rather unbelievable that he still held such a grudge after all the success he had with Megadeth. Okay, being in Metallica is always something else, but still...

I dont think it would be at least 10 minutes long.I read that they go on for a while. I know thats pretty insane he still has that grudge but damn he missed out on a very important band. Not that Megadeth is less important but Metallica is fucking Metallica.

I'm not a fan of metallica nor megadeth, but megadeth are way cooler in my opinion.

anyway, last movie seen: the sword and the sorcerer
enjoyed it very much, a lot of campy fun. the only real dissapointment is that neither the sword nor the sorcerer play a big role in the story.
