I'm thinking of deleting like ten of my past posts on this thread; that'll roll this back to only 999 pages and make all of you look stupid to future readers of this thread  Evil

El Cristo del Oceano 1971

I managed to catch this religious film over easter on one of the spanish channels....A bit hokey I know, where a local kid bumps into friend thats meant or not meant to be Jesus..but this features the hot actress Pilar Velázquez, and also features the soundtrack of Bruno Nicolai, which I believe to be one of his finest..
The final track of the film (for the "tearjerker") is very reminiscent to the style of 'Buona Fortuna Jack' from MNiN or 'Jill's Theme' from OUTitWest.

6/10

or 8/10 for just for the soundtrack

Yes, but then someone will write the next time the 1.000 is reached about the 1.000th post, then you can delete another 10 or 20 posts, then the next time ... then you ... then ...

The Killing Fields (1984) - 7/10. Ostensibly an account of the genocide in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, it actually takes 90 minutes to get to the fields of the title. That's because this film is really about Sydney Schanberg (Sam Waterson) and his feelings of guilt for having left his Cambodian interpreter behind when the foreign press corps was bounced out of the country. When we finally get to the red-meat part of the tale, we still can't focus on it because we keep cutting away to what Sydney is doing back in New York. This could have been so. much. better. Some of the photography is nice, though. Mike Oldfield's largely electronic score is annoying at times, but the ditty that plays over the end credits is nice.

The triumphalism at the end is entirely about the successful reboot of the series. No one in the production gave 2 fucks about the story.

Considering the next one is way over budget (around 300+ millions), even this triumphalism may be ill-advised:

From the article linked to above:
Quote
studio chiefs wanted to cut costs by using fewer trains in a dramatic fight scene, according to leaked emails
Which leads me to ask: just how many trains will that scene contain?

Why is it that this is starting to feel like The Lone Ranger of recent memory?

UPDATE: Not only does this post bring us to page #1001 (a perfect palindrome), it's also reply #15000 for the thread. Carol Merrill . . . where's my brand new car??

In another article that I read in December, from what I understood, they were talking about reducing the number of train cars (4 to 3 or 3 to 2) instead of trains. The article features actual quotes from the stolen emails. It's a shame I cannot find it back.

FUCK YOU n_l, I wanted to see that even 15,000!!!!

HBO's Scientology Documentary (going...going something? Going Clear I think?) - 8/10
Nothing new in terms of documentary style or presentation and not particularly challenging in its ambitions, but a really interesting documentary with a focus on the evils and delusions of Scientology.

I agree, but that 7/10 seems remarkably generous. Who are you, Groggy?

I think I am the only one who sometimes uses these boards on a cellphone (not a smartphone, btw, but a cellphone - yes, it does have a full keyboard Wink You can tell which posts I make on phone, like this post, cuz it has a little phone icon on the top left corner of the post. And on cellphone posts, I use capitals when writing the name of a movie, cuz I can't use italics on cellphone.)
Anyway, when viewing the site on my phone's mobile web, the pages are smaller; (I guess it is like 3 pages for every computer page, cuz) at the same time this thread hit 1,000 computer pages and 15,000 posts, it also hit 3,000 mobile-web pages. So that's another milestone Smiley
