I can agree with that.

I hate the payoff though. Why does these annoying bitches have to beat him at his own game? It would have been better if he took them all out.

He needed to NOT fucking cry the whole last 15 minutes of the film though. It was bullshit. Kurt Russell does not fucking cry from getting shot. He was in THE THING for god dammit...

Everybody with a mind and penis thought the same thing in my theatre.
At least, I would hope so.

Yeah. I actually seen it with a packed house at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and the whole crowd was cheering all throughout. I guess crowd to crowd varies?

Rescue Dawn (2006) - 8.5/10
A bit Hollywoodanized but still very good. Now I just must see Grizzly Man.

Another Les Mis version, this time:

1982, directed by Robert Hossein. 10/10

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084340/

And - yes! Finally, a masterpiece. Well, I knew I can trust Hossein. This movie is a dark, beautiful and surreal version. It's very book-accurate, has great actors and wonderful cinematography. Rain and fog all the time like in a Kurosawa movie. And slow-motion battle scene. And faces you'll remember. Sowhow they seem really 19th centurian, really poor and not just hollywoodian statists... Plus the movie is French, and it uses some stuff from the original version of the musical, which was also directed by Hossein.

Lino Ventura is Jean Valjean, and when I say IS, I mean he doesn't play. He's great. You can believe he was really a criminal, and I couldn't help myself but think: "He should've played in an SW!" Well, he had the face for an outlaw! He could have been a member of the Wild Bunch.

Michel Bouquet is Javert. And I fell in love with his voice! He is one of the old-fashioned actors who actually can TALK. Beautifully. And he grabs the character perfectly - he isn't evil. Always cold, always honest, never mean, and very strict. Like a samurai.

The movie is even darker than the book, and the ending is even more sad. I don't want to spoil it, watch this, it worths! I don't know if it exists with English subs, I watched it without subs and understood pretty good, although I don't speak French. So if you know the book well, you can risk it.


Bravo Hossein! And bravo boys.

Paths of Glory (1957)
I can't give it a rating, anyway not now, 10 minutes after finishing it. Very different from Kubrick's later movies: whereas they usually make a simple statement, this has actually something to say.

Great movie. I love the opening credit sequence with the perspective from the airplane.

Yeah, I loved it too. Hypnotizing. If I was on my sarcastic mood, I'd say Herzog (as an old documentarist) put that archive material there just to compensate the use of CGI in the other flying scenes  Wink

Yeah, I hated the CGI used in the plane crash. No need for it. However, it's still a great film and the usage of CGI wasn't overage if you ask me.

Well, I think the CGI was very much needed. Yes, Herzog had a ship towed over a hill once but crashing a real plane would have been total madness. But as you said, it wasn't overdone.

It would be total madness...but in his prime, Herzog would have done that.

Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
- 8.5/10
One of the better movies of its decade.

Una Giornata particolare "A Special Day" (1977) - 8/10
Plot summary taken from IMDb: "The film is set during the late 1930s: the occasion is the first meeting between Mussolini and Hitler. Left alone in her tenement home when her fascist husband runs off to attend the historic event, Sophia Loren strikes up a friendship with her homosexual neighbor Mastroianni. As the day segues into night, Loreon and Mastroianni develop a very special relationship that will radically alter both of their outlooks on life." Great cast of Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. The only movie I had seen from Scola previously was Brutti sporchi e cattivi so I was surprised how gentle this movie is. Some might call this stagy because it's spans one day and is set into a couple of apartments but it didn't bother me.
