seen any good flicks lately?



  • Quote of the day from Animal House

    Otter—"Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests - we did.

    But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals.
    For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system?
    And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general?
    I put it to you, Greg - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society?

    Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!"
    [Leads the Deltas out of the hearing, all humming the Star-Spangled Banner]

    absolute class.
  • Just watched 'Jacob's Ladder' Adrian Lyne.

    Watched it in 1990 at the movies, left the theatre sad, confused and convinced that if I was ever to go mad this film described what it would feel like...

    Watched it again, still feel confused and uneasy and am still not sure what the actual ending was...

    To echo our American cousins... I like 'closure' but being denied it in this film seems appropriate - Enjoyed it

    Tim Robbins was excellent, his best performance Shawshank Redemption excepted (possibly!)

    Can't believe Lyne was responsible for 9 1/2 weeks... (He must have dropped some bad acid that week!)
  • dunno i love him in Hudsucker proxy. It is so cool because he is so versatile. he can far-out and serious but also goof and fun.

    "you know, for kids.."
  • god my typing.

    *he can do far-out and serious as well as goofy and fun.
  • yeah, I see what you mean FH... My only criticism of him in 'Jacobs Ladder' is he looks about 19... but he has kids who look about 12-13.

    Still, suppose you can't help how you look.

    I'm going to see 'Good Night and Good luck' tomorrow at the Tyneside Cinema.
  • enjoy I still havent seen the second half mate.

  • Animal House.
    <moo sheds a little tear of nostalgia>
    I remember seeing it at the movies in Cambridge, Mass- er when it was first released, followed by a frat party at, it wasn't a toga party :)

    Any of you remember that other delicacy directed by John Landis, "Kentucky Fried Movie"? Particularly, the "A fistful of Yen" sketch :)

    I didn't watch a single movie all weekend, I'm on "Midsomer" at the moment :)
  • Ha Ha... I'm staying dry till the film finishes.

    Just been looking at the programme... they're showing the original 'Godzilla' and 'Blade Runner' next week... afternoon though,

    I can feel a sickie about to happen.
  • I liked Kentucky Fried movie... fist full of yen was very very funny
  • Can't you tape them, if on tv?
  • At the Tyneside Cinema Moomoo... I've never seen either larger than TV
  • Ok, I seeme to be making a habit of not watching a movie all the way through in one sitting, still haven't finished watching Shinobi yet. Duets, enjoyable movie with some nice tunes. Really suprised at Huey Lewis and the duet between Paul Giamatti & Andre Braugher is really really good. Nice performance from Gwyneth Paltrow as well. Not taxing, just some nice light entertainment.
  • Bladerunner at the movies....where?
  • Tyneside Cinema Newcastle part of the AV festival 4th-11th March.
  • He just said Tyneside :D

    Duets is being made into a TV series, apparently.
  • "Autotelematic spider bots"? :)
    Sounds interesting.
  • Tyneside, is that near London?

    Into a TV Series, what the States or here?

    there goes another writing idea out the window, bu??er!

    'Blade Runner' is showing on 10th
  • Sorry, maybe no reason to panic yet. Only reference so far on IMDB, except you have to be a member of the "Professional" sub to access it. It could be something else.
    Except I vaguely remember something of this sort on MTV a while back?
  • midsomer nooooooooooooooooooooo

  • :( I'm away.
  • Night Kids!
    And finally, before I catch some zzzzzzzz's:

    Steve Martin:
    For sincere advice and the correct time, call any number at random at 3:00 am.

    Rodney Dangerfield:
    Always look out for number one and be careful not to step in number two.

    George Carlin:
    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.

    Sally Berger:
    More people will get out of your way if you say "I'm about to puke" than if you say "Excuse me". :))
  • "You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."
