Quote of the Century, from Roger Corman:


“It’s not easy to take a computer-generated shark that can walk on a beach with octopus legs and make it seem believable.â€

I haven't been inside a theater in eight years. Wow

I saw "True Grit" at an Imax theater, at Tyson's Corner 'n' Lunar Landing Pad. Sitting in that place is like sitting in the upper deck at a baseball stadium — with better chairs.

^The best scene from Wicker Man involved Britt Ekland in the '73 original.

Recommended.

Stayed up very late to watch The Treasure of the Sierra Madre for the umpteenth time last night, to me the best movie ever. John Huston makes one of his signature cameo appearances, dressed in an off-white linen suit, white shirt, yellow tie, and superb Panama, smoking a cigar. Sartorial perfection!

Another. Stayed up late to watch Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan a couple nights ago, a very underrated movie, featuring the great Ralph Richardson in one of the best portrayals ever of an aging English aristocrat. At one point, preparing to shave, attended by his valet, he gestures for his coffee cup, plunges his shaving brush into it, and proceeds to lather up his soap. More grooming than drss, but I had remembered that cinematic moment since I first saw it about 25 years ago.

Inspired by Cardinals5 list of Japanese exploitation films (in a thread I can't find now) I fired up School of the Holy Beast the other night. Appalling, and pretty much everything you'd want in your basic "girl checks into the convent where her mother died mysteriously and makes interesting new friends" flick.

Real classic cinema, eh? Surprisingly, or not considering Japanese pop culture, School of the Holy Beast is considered a cult classic.

^ It's the rose scene. The tubby film critic in the DVD extra was enthusiastic about it.

The Cardinals5 Japanese flick list lead me to this bizarre bit of imagery and sniffing of boiling rice

But don'tcha just have to love Japanese filmmakers like Suzuki. For more contemporary fun stuff, check out the works of Takashi Miike (more blood and violence than Suzuki).

The best cigarette action scene you'll ever see (from Dead or Alive 2)

I have now watched all four of the "Pinky Violence" films, although I wonder if I should admit it.

The Japanese do weird very well.

Whenever I watch a weird Japanese movie and someone catches me, I exclaim: "I'm exploring Freud's concept of the uncanny." Confusing enough to get plenty of blank stares. If someone know's what Freud's uncanny means I philosophize on cognative dissonance and the authenticity of the postmodern sublime, which usually fixes their wagons. I don't know what it means either, but it's fun to say.
