Besides this fucking awesome site full of Sergio Leone fans, what are some your favorite sites to go to?

This probably my favorite site because of its simplicity.

Off-Topic Discussion / Southland Tales (2006)
« on: September 14, 2008, 04:03:29 PM »

In Los Angeles, a city on the brink of chaos overshadowed by the growth of the underground Neo-Marxist movement, we follow the criss-crossed destinies of Boxer Santaros (Dwayne Johnson), an action film actor stricken with amnesia; Krysta Now (Sarah Michelle Gellar), ex-porn star in the midst of creating a reality tv show; and twin brothers Roland and Ronald Taverner (both played by Seann William Scott), whose destinies – on one evening – become intertwined with that of all mankind.

Heres The Trailer:

The movie is just so strange and bizarre.Its a science fiction film about the end of the world.It felt as though it was like a modern version of Dr.Strangelove when i was watching it. I thought it was a great and I need to rewatch it to get some stuff that i missed.

Probably the best scene.

Off-Topic Discussion / The Greats of Roth
« on: February 12, 2008, 10:16:18 PM »
To all my Los Angeles friends...

My film festival The Greats of Roth starts this Sunday at the New Beverly Cinema. I posted a blog about it, but just in case you missed it the lineup's below. The owner of the theater died very suddenly last fall, and Edgar Wright, myself, and a few other directors volunteered to program 2 weeks each to help keep the cinema alive. Many of these films are not on DVD (or are heavily edited) and are rarely, if ever, screened publicly. Also if you are a blogger if you could mention the festival it would really help the theater out. Between the Silent Movie Theater and the New Beverly Cinema there's an amazing revival scene happening in Los Angeles and we want as many fans as possible to know there's an alternative to the multiplex every night of the week.

We've already got Lloyd Kaufman, director of "Mother's Day" confirmed for a Q&A after the screening, as well as P.J. Soles for the "Carrie" screening, and many others will be joining us as well. I'll announce guests as we get closer to the dates...
See you there!


Here's the lineup:

february 17, 18, 19
The Hacksaw/Chainsaw double bill! These films are next to impossible to find uncut on DVD in the U.S. and are rarely ever shown on the big screen. And they're both fucking awesome films that never cut away from the good stuff.

First up, Sergio Martino's giallo masterpiece
TORSO (1973) (a.k.a. Carnal Violence)
Sun: 3:50 & 7:30; Mon/Tue: 7:30

Followed by J.P. Simon's Chainsaw Trashterpiece
PIECES (1982)
Sun: 5:40 & 9:20; Mon/Tue: 9:20

february 20, 21
A Holiday Slasher/ Horror Anthology double bill...
The film I showed at my Bar Mitzvah instead of having a dance because I wasn't friends with any girls. One of my all time favorite slasher films. Charles Kaufman's brilliant

George Romero & Stephen King's criminally underrated ode to E.C. comics

PLUS: A special surprise short after Creepshow...

february 22, 23
DePalma's King adaptation of
CARRIE (1976)
Fri: 7:30; Sat: 3:30 & 7:30

followed by the brilliant Scott Baio-Willie Aames-Heather Thomas-Scatman Crothers telekensis SCENE-FOR-FUCKING-SCENE-REMAKE of Carrie...
ZAPPED! (1982)
Fri: 9:30; Sat: 5:30 & 9:30

I shit you not. I have always wanted to see these films back to back. Sissy Spacek uses her telekinetic powers to get revenge on the kids at school, and Scott Baio uses it to take off Heather Thomas' clothes. See where the "Charles and Charge" magic of Baio and Aames all began. It's also the next film that Scatman Crothers made right after the Shining. You can feel the Kubrickian influence in every moment of his performance. If you've never seen this film, you've never seen an animated sequence of Scatman Crothers' wife chasing him in a Ben-Hur chariot, firing animated salamis. Fucking sublime.

february 24, 25, 26
All Hail one of the greatest low budget futuristic musicals of all time:
THE APPLE (1980)
Sun: TBA; Mon/Tue: 7:30

Followed by a screening of the ultimate in Stunts and Rock...
Sun: TBA; Mon/Tue: 9:20

There will be some sort of sing along, but not on Oscar night, because Diablo Cody would kill me if I did it without her. Probably on the 25th.

february 27
Original? Remake? Ripoff? Or brilliant use of a similar technique? You be the judge! I have not seen "Blair Witch" since it came out in the theater, and have always wanted to see it back to back with the film that created the "found footage" movie. How do either of them compare to "Cloverfield?" Fuck I can't wait to see...


Ruggero Deodato's cannibal classic - the mother of all cannibal films -

And...because we only have the Cannibal Holocaust print for one night, we are switching it up for the next night and showing...

february 28
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Umberto Lenzi's grindhouse cannibal masterpiece
Umberto Lenzi and Ruggero Deodato got into a cannibal movie pissing contest back in the day. Lenzi did the first cannibal scene in his film "Man from Deep River" in 1972, but then Deodato made "Last Cannibal World" in 1976 and stole Lenzi's thunder. Then Deodato outdid himself with "Cannibal Holocaust," which became a sensation all over the world. Lenzi was so irritated that he made "Eaten Alive" to try to out-do Deodato, but people said it wasn't as grueling and nasty as "Cannibal Holocaust." So then he made "Cannibal Ferox" to show he could make the nastiest cannibal film of all time. Did it work? Decide for yourself! Lenzi also cast a lot of the same actors that Deodato used, just to make it even more confusing. It worked! I can barely keep track of which film is which, but they're both awesome and have lots of graphic violence that got them banned in many countries.

Oscar winning (or should have won) duo... Tom Hanks in his greatest performance ever...

Fri: 7:30; Sat: 3:25 & 7:30
And yet ANOTHER movie Bill Murray should have gotten the Oscar for...
Fri: 9:35; Sat: 5:30 & 9:35

Special thanks to the New Beverly for putting this together, and to Bob Murowski, the Silent Movie theater, and Quentin Tarantino for coming through with some of the hardest prints to find. Come geek out with us starting the 17th. I'll see which people from the films are still alive or not in prison but we'll definitely have some special guests and surprises all through the festival. See you there!
And here are some drawings I did in 2nd grade, now that we're in a trailer mood. My teacher really had no idea what to make of this. I was supposed to be writing a book, but got bored after a few chapters and started drawing these...

Coen Brothers to Make Spaghetti Western
Filmmaking siblings Joel and Ethan Coen are set to make their goriest film ever - a Spaghetti Western featuring scenes of primitive torture methods. The brothers, whose notoriously gory new film No Country for Old Men has been tipped for Oscar glory, are desperate to make a film about the days of cowboys and Indians battling it out in the Wild West of America. But - as Joel warns - it won't be one for the faint-hearted. He says, "We've written a western with a lot of violence in it. There's scalping and hanging ... it's good. Indians torturing people with ants, cutting their eyelids off." Ethan adds, "It's a proper western, a real western, set in the 1870s. It's got a scene that no one will ever forget because of one particular chicken."

I have mixed feelings on this :-\
