I read that differently and got very scared for a moment...
 
2013-01-22 09:03:22 AM
I find it ironic that Robert Redford, the man who was out-acted by the trees behind him in "Jeremiah Johnson", is knocking Paris Hilton for what he is known for: A pretty face, but not much acting ability in his youth.
 
2013-01-22 09:12:35 AM
Psssst....Robert, I live in Utah. We common folk can't watch the news or listen to the radio without hearing someone talk about what celebrities they've seen or what events they've attended. It's not just Paris that's raining on your parade, the media hype the hell out of that aspect of the festival.
 
2013-01-22 09:17:27 AM
Yeah...not a fan of Brit by any stretch of the imagination. But if she wants to go party in Utah there's nothing ol' man Redford can do about it.

\It ain't his lawn.

Paris, I mean. It's too early...and it's snowing like a mofo.

"There are too many people who come to the festival to leverage their own self-interest."

Oh you mean like every single person there? Christ, Redford, your film festival has been a joke for so long, South Park made fun of it in Season 2!

"She didn't have anything to do with the films," he said. "What movie is she in? She and her hard-partying, swag-grabbing cohorts have made the festival not much fun.

Redford still has more coolness and credibility than 99-percent of Hollywood.

Cut the man some slack everyone. Robert Redford is seventy-six years old. He's definitely at the 'Get Off My Lawn' stage of his life.

Sounds like someone did not get a BJ from Miss Hilton at Sundance.

CSB - Went to Sundance a few years ago with my then BF, and it was a surreal experience. We manged to score this AMAZING condo to rent on Main Street, would call in late and get these unreal reservations...got a welcome basket delivered to our door, as well as invites to parties/screenings that we had no clue how we managed to hit those radars...I couldn't understand what people were saying Sundance would be a pain in the ass.

Now is probably when I should mention that my BF's legal name is also that of a well known star and producer. (last name is spelled one letter differently, but otherwise, same thing.) We figured out that people must be thinking he was THAT guy, and not dull old VV from the midwest. It was awesome watching people's faces when we'd show up for the reservations, whipping out the ID, and they'd be all crestfallen that we weren't THAT guy and his date.

I have mad love for RR and all, but he's kidding no one if the thinks the whole celebrity watching thing isn't a strong draw of Sundance now. And, given that we were getting thrown invites/gifties just on the name alone, it certainly seems like Sundance, as an institute, didn't mind what they assumed would be publicity from a 'famous' attendee.

/Much prefer SxSW - warmer, better food, and much easier locations to get to, film-wise. Even if it is in Texas.

If you want to survive in the mountains, it's best to let the trees out act you.

He doesn't want to see his fest turned into a burning man (BM) before he's passed on.

REO-Weedwagon: Redford still has more coolness and credibility than 99-percent of Hollywood.

your average octegenarian.

So you need to be in a movie just to go to and appreciate Sundance?  He's being extremely pretentious about his own endeavors.  And ripping on Paris Hilton?  Way to stay relevant there -- if it was 5 or 10 years ago.  He needs to go tighten his onion belt and get into lawn care.  If he doesn't wise up he's going to have a Clint Eastwood/chair moment very soon.

If you can find a room, the week of Sundance is the best time to go skiing there. The slopes are empty.

I did see her in her movie debut and I think she was killed off in about 5 minutes. The killer got her first and that made the movie better then the cheesy B rated movie it was. Sadly, I can not remember what the movie was because I saw it on channel Thrillers.
 
2013-01-22 11:04:52 AM
Also, Sundance sucks as an independent film festival at this point.

Anyone can have a Film Festival these days.

Nantucket Film Festival. I'd fire up the boat and go back if Bobcat shows up. The man is a legend on the island.
Woods Hole Film Festival. Conspicuous Conservation Commission.
Martha's Vineyard Film Festival. Pretentious.
Martha's Vineyard International film Festival. Slow down there.
Martha's Vineyard African-America Film Festival. You're trying too hard now.
Provincetown Film Festival. OK, I'd like a photo with John Waters. Drag Races on Commercial Street.

Hyannis Port Film Festival. I have some 8mm film of Jackie Kennedy drinking and smoking on my Grandfather's boat. Highest bid over a million $.

Oh, I love that movie. Just watched it the other day. And other than a couple of other minor issues related to the guns*, his acting is the worse part of it.

*A .30 caliber Hawken didn't exist, to my knowledge, and it would have been a squirrel rifle if it did. Also, I shoot a larger caliber gun than Hatchet Jack's gun (mine is a .54 caliber, bigger than a .50), and they don't kick like that.

I generally like Robert Redford... i'm not a Liberal, but i respect the guy who really 'believes' in his causes... He knows the facts, and comes to his own conclusions... He's not just a Liberal because its trendy. And then he puts those ideals in his work in hopes of educating the rest of us. I don't claim to know everything, and so if someone is going to preach to me whats wrong with our country, i don't mind hearing it from someone like Redford

Could it be that Paris Hilton and her entourage of swag grabbing sycophants actually are being such incredibly disruptive assholes that they deserve to be called out for it? I, for one, would not be surprised. Hilton is one of the biggest attention whores on the planet, after all. Since Redford has singled her out for her behavior (out of all the celebrities and attention whores that attend Sundance) I would give him the benefit of the doubt. You cannot seriously question Redford's sincerity or his valuable contributions to the movie industry.
 
2013-01-22 03:00:40 PM
Redford founded the festival, which originally took place in Salt Lake City, but now happens in Park City, Utah, in 1978.

Actually, plenty of events still happen in SLC. I think at least half of the movies screen here, due to limited screen space in Snootville sorry, Park City...
And unfortunately, Redford is a victim of his own success, if he is bothered by no-talents like Hilton showing up just to be seen...

I'm not surprised that you are on Hilton's side, considering your own persistent attention whoring behavior. Hilton *did* make a movie, a rather poorly filmed short of her giving a blow job. Hence the term "attention whore".

2013-01-22 04:11:59 PM
I bought my gal a .30. twern't a Hawkin.
But it's a .30.
I got a 30 and a 40 pistol.
No kick.
Just pure fun.

I was showing her how to shoot it, and had a cap go off, but no boom.[ there was supposed to be a boom. ] I swung it across my lap and pointed it at a hillside and she said now what?
I said, well, the sound of a cap and no boom should signal black powder tech support. Any minute now, some old timer with wire rimmed glasses and a pocket full of quills is going to come out of the bush over there, and ask me if I've tried unloading it and reloading it. Then he's going to ask me if the powder was wet or dry, and whether or not I used a #11 cap or a golldanged musket cap on it, and he's going to ask if the wadding was oiled a lot or a little or not at all, and then, after he considers my answers, he's finally going to ask me if I have a ball puller on me.

Do you have a ball puller? She asks me.

Hell no, woman, I don't even have a goll durned nipple wrench, I says, and she actually thought that was funny.

Then we set it on a rock and covered it with a blanket and drove down the road to the local store and picked up a nipple wrench and a ball puller.

The good folks of Austin mostly GTFO of town when SXSW comes along. The reality is, your idea of what Austin is "like" is about as far away from reality as what RR thinks Sundance is "like". Sure it was fun for the first 15 or so years, but having 200,00 people come and use your city for a toilet for 2 weeks gets real farking old. I did sound for it for a few years, but it's really not worth it, and if it went away, not many of the old guard would care too much......
