I had never heard of the first one but now after seeing the ads for RED2 I want to see it.

edit: On TNT tonite!

Damn, was that Borgnine's last movie?
Aw, he's no fun, he fell right over.

You should watch "The Thick of It". Capaldi plays his Malcolm Tucker character in a brit-com series about inept ministers and the even more inept opposition. The finale of the last season where everyone is called before an inquiry is even darker than "In The Loop".

No. But if he'd lived a little longer, RED2 would have been... they wrote an extended part for him that was retooled after he passed.

Hey, have you been feeling that many recent movies feel like they have been stamped out of a machine? Well, there's a reason for that.

I can just see the studio execs insisting on screenwriters using that book out of fear of losing.

I watched Dead Zone and Interview With The Vampire last night. I went back and forth between the 2, since i've seen them both before many times. As dated as they are, they're still great flicks.

Or, worse, they will tell editors to arbitrarily edit movies to fit the formula.

Bonnie & Clyde 1967

We missed the first five minutes or so, but it's a fun enough movie, and it is cool to see something that was something of an industry game-changer.
It's definitely a glamorized depiction, but well told story.
Faye Dunoway is gorgeous, as are the cars.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Warren Beatty was the best Clyde ever. But they did choose likable actors to play the parts. The studios like to romanticize villains, as do authors.

Dunaway's great. Check her out in Network. Sharon Stone was her successor but now who follows her?

Hitchcock. Good fun with Hopkins and Mirren and Scarlet Johannson slimmed down as Janet Leigh. I wish they'd shown more of the actor playing Anthony perkins. He was dead on.

Watched Gran Torino last night. Not bad. Hard to really enjoy a film when you spend 3/4s of it hating the main character because he's a bigoted uncouth individual fuckhead.

But I spotted where it was going as soon as I realized how annoying his kids and grandkids were, so I hung in there for a happy ending.

Redemption? Martyrdom? Dying on his terms vs. being eaten alive by cancer, and having a death that meant something and helped someone?

Look, I have 82 year old grandparents. To them, a "happy ending" is dying in their sleep before the other one does. Everything's relative.

I don't really see him as redeemed, just as redeemed as he was going to get. He was still full of hate and bigotry, just not quite as much as before.

Okay, movie marathon last night. Saw "Snitch" and "Gangster Squad."

I definitely liked the second one better.

Last night I was laying in bed, and Young Frankenstein was on. I've seen it before, but I watched it again, for probably the fifteenth time.

It is still funny.

One of the joys in my life are hearing my two children (6 and 8) quoting lines from that movie to each other and laughing their heads off.

They have also seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail (I forward through the Castle Anthrax part).
I can't think of any funnier movies that I can let them watch at this age.

Yeah. Though we talk to the kids frequently about bigotry and race issues, were holding off on Blazing Saddles for the time being.
I need to see History of the World Pt 1 again.

High Anxiety is mostly safe, IIRC. History is extremely bawdy. It's got a dance of the seven veils scene and the whole Queen of France gangbang scene. Not for kids.

I loved Marty Feldman's The Last Remake of Beau Geste at that age, though I'm sure I didn't get half of the jokes.

Gene Wilder as Sherlock Holme's Smarter Brother is funny and mostly safe. Marty Feldman as well. I think anything with Marty Feldman had me in stitches as a kid.

Part of the censorship of the time. You couldn't show the flick if the bad guys weren't made to be totally despicable.

Yeesh. I went to see History in the theatre with my dad. Still in my teens and young enough for that seven veils scene to throughly embarrass me.

Disaster movie

It's a disaster.

Con: Kim Kardashian is in it.

Pro: Kim Kardashian gets crushed by a meteorite.

Smoke a joint before and another one during and you may enjoy this movie. Not that I hated it, but it is BAD.

High Anxiety is one of our favorites--I don't know why I thought they wouldn't get into it. I'll give that one a whirl.

It's been years since I have seen HistoryPt1--so I forgot about the bawdiness.


Mel Brooks is one of those guys who I think is really dependent on his cast--if the cast is great, it';s a great movie, when he doesn't have the talented cast, his bad jokes fall flat.

Egggh. Men in Tights was exactly what was on my mind, bad cast. I also thing Spaceballs was pretty lousy. Slightly more talented cast than MiT, but not buy much.

I did love Brook's TV show based on Robin Hood : When Things Were Rotten.
