I liked this movie,
I really don't care how many people make fun of it. I know it's pretentious
& probably filled with allegories I missed, but so are a lot of things.
My biggest complaint is about the hitchhiking scene being a little too
porny, but whatever....
Joe Versus the Volcano
I was scared to watch
this again. It was one of my favorite movies six years ago &
I watched it a lot then, but haven't seen it since. I was scared
it was going to bleak & almost unwatchable because I only really remembered
the first portion before Joe Banks quits his job; like when his boss says,
"You don't feel good? Nobody feels good. After childhood it's a fact
of life." I don't know what my point is, but I still like it &
my girlfriend actually called it a good movie & I'll buy it on DVD
when it comes out even though I don't own a DVD player.
Little Big Man
This might be my favorite
western, it's pretty funny & crazy. There's some term for what
this movie is about, maybe a captive narrative? Dustin Hoffman is
captured & raised by indians & then has some crazy adventures that
could be plots from Bugs Bunny.
Planet of the Apes
This movie made me
realize something, there aren't any directors I can trust to make good
movies. There's no reason to pan this movie because it's just too
easy. Rent the original Planet of the Apes or Conquest
of the Planet of the Apes & spend your time better.
Saturday Night Fever
It's been five years
since the last time I saw this & all I remembered was the brother giving
up the priesthood & the friend who kills himself because his girlfriend
is pregnant. So I'm thinking it's fairly artistic & cool &
proto-Gen-X. Then I rent it & it ends up the 75% of the film
I forgot actually is about disco dancing just like everyone told me....
I only really wanted
to see this movie because I heard that Kurt Russell movie Soldier
was based on it. I guess it was plot wise, but this doesn't have
anywhere near the character development. You just sit around waiting
an hour for the gunfight to happen.
