I loved Bubba Ho-Tep... actually, I pretty much like anything Bruce has been in.

This is awesome news, hopefully it's enough to convince Bruce to commit to the film.

Great actor. I honestly know nothing about this film other than the Bruce Campbell involvement, but if Paul Giamatti's in it, I'm there. I've been a fan since he played Pig Vomit in Private Parts. He was even great in The Negotiator (Don't be sayin' "no" no more, motherfarker!).

If I had a 90 minute looped video of the opening scene from Sideways where he's squatting on the toilet, I'd grab a bowl of popcorn and watch every minute of it. Gotta respect any movie that opens with just the word "f**k".

It looks to me like self-aware camp. That, plus my man-crush on Clive Owen, compels me to see it.

I liked Sideways a lot, that scene where he runs into the tasting and just starts pouring wine all over himself was pretty good. I thought it was a little depressing, but maybe that's just me. I loved him in Cinderella Man though

Actually, I know exactly who Bruce Campbell is, I'm just not in his legion of devoted fans who follow his every move. I think he was the only good thing about Spider-Man 3, and I enjoy him in "Burn Notice".

However, YOU'RE a douche for using "your" incorrectly when trying to insult someone else. Douche.

I really liked Bubba Ho-Tep, but I have to say I'm not very excited about Bubba Nosferatu. Bubba Ho-Tep was one of those weird independent films that was fun to watch, different, and showcased that Bruce Campbell has a little bit of range as an actor.

Bubba Nosferatu just seems like "HA HA BRUCE CAMPBELL KILLS THE UNDEAD! HE IS IN B-MOVIES HA HA!"

Bruce Campbell is filling a large void that was left by John Agar.
 
2007-08-23 09:49:52 AM  
yeah, I think Bubba Ho-tep is better off as a one off thing. If you want more Bruce Campbell, watch Burn Notice. Keep the ratings up, keep it on the air.

I hate this culture where you are judged cool or uncool for what movies you like/dislike. Just watch whatever you want, like whatever you like, and tell anyone who judges you on it to fark off.

I think Bruce Campbell kicks ass, but I don't always care for every movie or TV show he's been in. Just like any actor, he's had some great projects, and he's had some horrible train wrecks.

How about we judge the film on its own merits when it comes out?

I don't know if I had a point to this ramble...I'll reread it after I take my medication.

I, for one, like Bruce Campbell a lot. But even that can't get me to watch Xena. Or Brisco County, Jr. For that matter.

I liked Sideways because, to me, it's more of a "true story" type of movie than a super-scripted shoot-em-up "okay more explosions... NOW" type of movie. An actor hanging on to the small accolades of his past and not doing much anymore, about to enter into the domestic life, and an oenophile wanna-be writer who never really made it and is still not quite getting over his divorce. Quite the depressing pair, but the movie is ostensibly about the choices they are making and how they're reacting to them. I believe it's mostly about acceptance with how the past is gone than about wine or other things.

I'm not trying to convince anyone to see it, but I agree that the general vibe from a lot of the fans of the movie is definitely that of snobbery, which interestingly enough, is something that Paul Giamatti used in his characterizations of his wine-loving persona: the annoying foibles of the hyper-educated in a niche area of interest. The wine is really an ongoing metaphor/analogy throughout.

Overall it's not a feel-good movie, or a seven-hanky chick flick, or (definitely not) a Michael Bay testosterone-masturbation movie, but rather one to watch and be a bit uncomfortable as you can see the parts of these very flawed people mirrored in yourself, and realize that there's maybe a bit of hope for everyone.

I think it's more polite to say that they're "living and unwitting inspirations." At least the ones who go in expecting a huge intellectual treatise on life, wine and a validation of their own mental capabilities or lives.

Watching it as an intellectual exercise is boring. Watching it as a sly (and partly depressing) mirror is more entertaining, and will probably make people think moreso than if they go in expecting to do so. Like I said, it's uncomfortable how many of the negative qualities the characters have that one may be able to recognize in themselves.

I also loved Paul Giamatti in "American Splendor." He looks nothing like Harvey Pekar, but absolutely nailed Pekar. Giamatti seems to excel in making dislikeable people sympathetic, if not likeable.

It was the Illusionist.. Definately an actors movie. Giamatti made every scene he was in 10x better and Rufus Sewell was great as well. Rufus is very underutilized in an industry that has a lot of similar actors(Ewan MacGregor, sort of Clive Owen, etc). Jessica Beil was actually okay too.

So has anyone else read Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way? I picked it up in the bargain bin and it was one of the most amusing books I've read in a long time. Lots of laugh your drink through your nose comedy. Actually reminded me a lot of Douglas Adams with his writing wit.. not on the same level, but he's got something there that he could use to make money as his zombiekilling days diminish

I'm in the middle of reading it now. The pictures are a nice touch, even if 90% of them are just his face photoshopped onto something. I love how he mentions so many roles that he lost to other people.

Jack31081: are you kidding me? It's called "Shoot 'Em Up" for chrissakes. You know exactly what you're getting.



Of course I know what I'm getting. Believe me, I'm a complete realist. But just because I know what I'm getting into, that doesn't mean it can't suck.

I loved Sideways and after I saw American Splendor, Giamatti became one of my favorite actors, probably because he excels at playing a miserable prick, which I can completely relate to. Some of his mannerisms and facial expressions are ones that I catch myself making every day.

I understand how some people, who haven't even SEEN the movie, will get the "snobby" vibe from Sideways. But you really need to just watch it, there are some hilarious moments (naked running guy, car meets tree, etc). It's not for everyone, and I know it's not because everyone I recommended it to disliked it or didn't care to watch it, which is why I'm such a loner douchebag.

(Note: People who come out of that movie criticizing various wine concepts and preferences in the film are missing the point completely. The movie isn't about goddamn wine. And if you think it is, then Scarface is about cocaine and Passenger 57 is about airline safety).

Oh, and Lady in the Water sucked all kinds of rhinoceros cock.

I guess I'm glad I didn't pay attention to the marketing behind it, then. I basically saw that it had Paul Giamatti going to a wine country so I thought it would be good to go see, and saw it at a University theater (go free!). As I didn't have any expectations of it making me laugh, I wasn't disappointed.

That's probably one of the best arguments for not paying attention to too much marketing behind movies. Go in expecting nothing and let it sit or stand on its own merits.

It's not just OnDemand...Sideways is found in the comedy section of the rental store and says it's a comedy on the DVD cover.

but that's all beside the point...if Bruce Campbell isn't in Bubba-Nosferatu I won't even steal it.
