Hi all, I'm proposing a new game for the Showbiz tab since it's always dead here. Basically it's a screen cap contest. We post a screen cap of a scene in a movie, it can be any film (except X-rated), we have to guess what film it is. Only the winner gets to post the next cap though. We can do themes based on holidays or seasons etc.


Anybody interested?

I hate it when I watch a movie like Close Encounters of the Third Kind that I have watched many times before and I just get my mind totally blown.

Tonight I did a really annoying chick thing and insisted on watching some (subtitled) Bollywood musical that was on tv (I swear there was nothing else on). I was keen to see some Indian dancing, only 20 minutes passed before we were both shouting DURKADURKADURKA at the tv and venting the kind of rage that only builds up after hundreds of drunken cab rides.

Funny, I was talking about Hollywood escapism and how the amount of it reflects current economic trends with a friend last night. The basic gist of the conversation is that we aren't to the point that India is where it needs an industry completely devoted to ripping off the choreography in Janet Jackson videos from the 90s but that we're not a few years off of Transformers: the Musical.

I think this was a product of watching a metric ass ton of 50s and 60s sci fi movies recently. Taken in the context that it completely explodes the ideas established in those movies, Close Encounters is just an amazing film.

I am starting to think that the Auteurs weren't just full of bullshiat and themselves (more bullshiat).

I was so high last night that I couldn't muster the motivation to find the remote in order that I might not watch "What Women Want". God damn you Mel Gibson, for being so bumblingly charming. Disregard the fact that Helen Hunt has a forehead you can show a drive-in movie on, and you almost make me want to give up chauvinism for good. Almost.

"THE GIRL WITH THE FILES! WHERE THE F*CK IS THAT GIRL WITH THE FILES?! SHE'S GOING TO F*CKING KILL HERSELF! I HAVE TO BREAK INTO HER HOUSE NOW! I'M DOING THE RIGHT GODDAMN THING YOU STUPID C*NT!"

He wasn't charming, women want a sensitive guy wearing a powder blue suit in their gay friends not their boyfriends/husbands. What they want is the original character's personae but only dedicated to them.

My mom dragged me to that film and I can't remember anything about it except for my mother's all-consuming bad taste in movies and the subsequent rage it gives me.
I love how quick Australians are to point out that Mel Gibson is American. Nobody wants to claim his crazy ass anymore.

One of the negative aspects of the internet is that the internet's ability to beat a joke into the ground can dilute a comedy movie.

Take Dodgeball for example:
1. Pirates
2. Chuck Norris
3. William Shatner
4. Overly enthusiastic people earnestly defining their aesthetic in the face of an unfriendly context
5. Ben Stiller

All four of those at one point were chuckle inducing with even rarer creative points that made them interesting but thanks to the internet the line "farking Chuck Norris" falls flat.

In conclusion, if Shakespeare were alive today he'd be really, really old. Thank you for your time.

Having watched Wayne's World again the other day, I can finally understand what bothered me so much about the movie when I was growing up. The movie never sat right with me because Cassandra's band was so ridiculously LA and the world of Wayne and Garth was one where Aerosmith was considered ok to listen to. The band played "rockin'" covers of lame-ass 80s songs and it was all about the LOOK of a band that could catch your eye while channel surfing rather than one that had any talent.

The dual aims of the movie was trying to save a down home cable access show from being exploited into this glitzy advertising machine moving units while in the same breath trying to find a place for Cassandra in the machine of major label marketing.

At no one point did the movie reconcile these two goals and they remain at cross purposes.

Is he a mage or is he a fighter? He's FIGHTERMAGE!!
 
  2008-02-10 02:45:38 AM
Little know and largely lost to history were the Gifts of the FighterMagi that enabled Jesus to gain his freedome from the slavepits of Rome and re-establish the Republic.

The Gifts of the FighterMagi were:
-a shiney shield
-a clockwork owl
-a sword that could cut through anything

Memorize this. There will be a test.
 
  2008-02-10 05:04:55 AM
I promise i will bring my uber-powerful sword with me to hollywood. :)

Roger Ebert was right, Robert Altman's McCabe and Mrs. Miller is one of the few perfect movies ever made.

Consider it an anti-Western. Watch some big dick swinging contest starring John Wayne and then pop this movie in. The ending doesn't take place under high noon and McCabe doesn't have everything under control. He's scared and out of his depth and he knows it.
 
  2008-02-20 02:27:30 AM
wow, this is a busy forum!

"The Great Space Coaster" was a brilliant show. I mean, gno gnews may very well be good gnews, but I'll be damned if that show didn't have everything.

I just found out that Jeff Bridges was in The Last Picture Show

I had previously been amazed at his VO acting in The Last Unicorn but that he was in such an important and groundbreaking movie is just amazing. I bet that man could do anything like pull an engine and refurb it.
 
  2008-02-22 01:24:54 AM
I cannot stress enough how amazingly awesome the commentary by John Waters is for Mommy Dearest.

He makes fun of Christina Crawford mercilessly.

It was nice seeing Tupac's sensitive side in "Poetic Justice". It was also nice re-living a period of time when Janet Jackson was actually hot. It was also nice seeing how easy it is for black people to show up at a family reunion, eat their food (I THINK THAT IS BARBECUE!), start a fight, then leave in a mail truck, completely unhindered.

Maya Angelou's cameo, while unexpected, was also nice. I could really use an omniscient, sassy black grandmother.

Commando was on tv last night at 11.30pm. I was really tempted to stay up and indulge in some bad 80's Ah-nold nostalgia.

"Vantage Point" has one of the most ludicrously unbelievable car chases in the history of cinema. Dennis Quaid, despite his rugged handsomeness and gravelly voice, simply cannot remain no more than three car lengths behind the bad guys after plowing through that many cheap European automobiles. Also, there's a really hot Spanish chick in that movie.

Did anyone watching Law and Order get the impression that McCoy slept with Dr. Olivett after Claire's death?

HOLY shiat BUFFY TEH VAMPIRE SLAYER iS A HOMO!!!LOL

farking creatively bankrupt franchises and their shiatty writers.

Yeah, that includes Rowling, too. You people should be ashamed of the shiat you digest and they should put a maximum age restriction on all sci fi of 14 for how intelligent any of it is any more.

so this is where all the degenerates have been lurking.

I wanna see Vantage Point. Worth the rent or nay?
 
  2008-03-10 12:40:22 AM
olapbill: I wanna see Vantage Point. Worth the rent or nay?

It's certainly entertaining. You have to suspend your disbelief a bit for the generic ZOMG TERR'ISTS back story and aforementioned car chase, but the way the story unfolds is pretty cool, if not a bit repetitive at first. Dennis Quaid is either totally bad-ass, a PTSS head case, laughably stone-faced (imagine Steven Segal meets Leslie Nielsen), or some bizarre combination of all three.

The hot Spanish chick is also worth another mention. Nobody ever runs out of bullets, either, so that's pretty cool too.

i'd totally run out of bullets with a hot spanish chick.

but I think thats more of a TFD thread

Two questions regarding Battlestar Galactica:

1. Does anyone know where I can find a listing of episodes on each disc? I stopped watching after "Rapture" and want to rent off Netflix. Not sure which discs I need to get.

2. Is it OK to watch Razor without having watched all of season 3 or should I finish off the season first?

Thanks for the help.

FYI: when Boomer has her helmet on she looks just like William Hung.

Why are you trying to ruin the show for me? Boomer/Athena was my favorite and now I'm going to think of that every episode.

Is it because you're a blond so you favor Starbuck?

I guess there isn't much chance of my question being answered, but is the Daily Show running reruns every other week, or is Comedy Network (the Canadian version of Comedy Central) being stupid and not getting access to the shows?

I gave up my TV years ago, living a blissfully ad-free life like the hippie I am.

However, sometimes I come across shows that get me all excited.

I think between this and Donna bumping into Rose on Doctor Who have been two of the best "WTF?" moments I've seen on TV.
