Late late night and also, via Hulu. Oh to have someone in the White House who is actually, intelligent.

Just listened to Drew's podcast where they discuss Zodiac. Makes sense to put it on

Going for something on the side of lighthearted and sometimes, goofy and the least like Coen Brothers film (maybe?)...I always enjoy watching this and think Jones and Clooney had great chemistry. I really hoped to see them together  in another rom com.

Cage-A-Thon:

post #11714 of 11783

I still haven't seen a non-comedy David Gorden Green production. Should I bump Joe up the watch list? I'm always up for a good Cage role.

 

True Story: Seeing 'Bringing Out The Dead' in the theater with your mom when you're 13 and it's a school night is weird. I couldn't quite figure out if it was a good movie or not after, but it sure was something.

post #11715 of 11783

JOE: Nic Cage is absolutely brilliant.

 

My thoughts after first viewing:

 

"I can't stop thinking about this film. David Gordon Green captures the feel and experience of the rural south better than any other modern filmmaker. This might be my favorite Nic Cage performance, and I've been down since VALLEY GIRL. This is an achingingly emotional powerhouse character study. It'll stay with you. My second favorite -right behind MUD, another rural South character piece- film of 2013.

 

Green found this homeless man living on the streets of Austin, Gary Poulter, and cast him in the pivotal role of the alcoholic, abusive father of the boy Cage befriends. What should've been stunt casting gone awry, makes this film feel alive and authentic. And Poulter brings a real sense of danger: there's nothing fake about the hard life lived you see on the screen; and you get the sense of a soul lost and thrown away. He shables and slurs like a man who hasn't been sober for most of his life; who has completely given into the demon bottle; with a coldness behind the eyes that says he no longer feels any human connection. When he kills, you believe it.

 

After the film wrapped Poulter went back to the streets and his own demons, and was found dead in a shallow body of water in September 2013 before the film was ever released.  Producers had worried casting Poulter in the film would be a risk, with Poulter's lack of sobriety, however, Green stayed committed to having him in the film. And what he got was a performance that holds its own against a shining never better Academy Award winning actor in Cage.

 

Writing for RogerEbert.com, Peter Sobczynski called Poulter's performance "stunning" and "one of the great one-shot performances in the history of the cinema"."

Re-watching; especially the finale, "Everyone's Waiting"

 

post #11719 of 11783
Watching Armageddon right now for some reason. I haven't seen this since VHS. Seeing it now makes me realize how incoherent this was in pan and scan.

Every Michael Bay movie I watch, I think to myself "this is the most Bay-est, most obscenely shameless of all his movies" but this one really might be. Some of it's enjoyable but maaaaan, it's so annoyingly 'Murica!! and dumber'n shit to boot. Looks pretty. Somehow, characters keep finding themselves in front of giant American flags whenever they have something poignant to say. Sheesh..
post #11720 of 11783


Just watched.

Ok...I didn't really hate Armageddon when I watched it last night. What the fuck is wrong with me?!

I havent watched that since the theatre.

Maybe I should check it out again..
post #11723 of 11783
I used to despise it. But I just found myself rolling with it's over the top nonsense.

I swear this is all Independence Day 2's fault. I hated that shit pile so much that it's made a bunch of similar movies look pretty fucking rosy by comparison. That's the honest to god truth..

I dunno if I can go that far.

I'll meet ya halfway and watch Moonraker instead. How bout that?
post #11726 of 11783
NO COMPROMISE
post #11727 of 11783
I just cannot watch that one. My opinion on it will never change. There's literally nothing about it for me to latch onto in any way. Nothing to like. Not one part to look forward to. It's the Tom Cruise movie that makes me understand how he annoys some people so bad. I'd rather watch his loony Scientology video. Hell, they use the same music.

Right now though, I'm gonna re-watch Spielberg's most underrated movie. I'll leave that up to y'all to wonder which one I'm referring to..

I saw the vast majority of it on TV at my Mom's house last year. It was excruciating. There's nothing to be gained from my giving it ANOTHER chance..

ARMY OF ONE: classic level Cage hilarity and eccentricity. He's so funny film gets by dreadful miscasting of Brand as God. (Almost any living actor or comedian would've been better fit) Cage going full on goofball is always a blast. He really goes for it here. Verdict: big thumbs up

On again, now. I just click it on, accidentally and it just stays on. This movie's charm is so strong...

 

post #11736 of 11783

I love that Nicolas Cage had Raising Arizona out the same year as Moonstruck.

I love it.  I prefer Meg and Billy over Meg and Tom.   The chemistry is off the charts in WHMS.

Completely  agree with you.  And the only movie where there was an ounce of chemistry between them (Meg and Tom) was Joe Versus the Volcano.

I'm finally getting around to watching this.

After reading that Savage Stack article on BMD I realized it had been too long.

post #11742 of 11783

Deadfall: Huh, Michael Biehn and Nicolas Cage together. That alone would've gotten me to rent it if I came across it on the video shelf 20 years ago. I'm surprised I've never seen it or heard of it. I've got a lot of Cage work to do.

 

Haven't even seen The Rock or Con Air since VHS, either. Fuck! My Cage levels are flatlining...

post #11743 of 11783

The movie itself isn't very good, but Cage is AMAZING.

That 3D blu is great. I've only watched it it once but I remember the fantastic detail in the sets.
post #11747 of 11783
Can't bring myself to ever hate that movie, despite it's shortcomings. Best looking Scott movie since Black Rain.

Which is why I feel like I'll be the only one on CHUD who ends up liking Covenant..

I dunno about that.

You think it's prettier than 1492?
post #11749 of 11783
Yes I do. I'd put Hannibal above 1492 as well.

Though Hannibal the movie pales in comparison to Hannibal the TV show in every way possible...but that's a different discussion for a different thread..

It is quite gorgeous. I actually feel like I've never seen this version before even though I've owned it since its release.
