Is the documentary itself worth a watch, in your eyes?

Oh absolutely. You really get to see the passion coming from that man, and the dissapointment he felt when everything fell through. My comment was if I was a hypthetical producer and Jodorowsky came to me, I would have to refuse, even though I like what I see.

I think that they should use digital magic to have Willem Defoe reprise all his roles but as the Green Goblin and composite him into the movies over himself. He’s the socially awkward detective in American Psycho, but it’s the Green Goblin. He’s Sgt. Elias dying in a hail of gunfire and betrayal, but it’s the Green Goblin. He has Madonna bound and tied and he’s raping her but she’s enjoying it, and he’s the Green Goblin. He’s in Antichrist smashing his own testicles with a hammer, but it’s the Green Goblin.

This is the only future for cinema. Otherwise filmmaking is obsolete and the feature film is a dead art.

hahahahaha exactly my response as well. I think Willem Dafoe is great in everything he is in honestly but I especially love him in the Spider-Man movies. Having that character appear in all of his other films would be just too great for all the wrong reasons. If they did it, I would watch it. An underrated Dafoe movie I watched recently too was "The Hunter." Willem Dafoe played a hunter who was searching for a thought to be extinct species in the wilderness. The plot sounds dull but there is a lot of great character drama and the acting is really solid.

View Original PostFreakyFilmFan4ever wrote:I saw Warner Brothers' Mowgli on Netflix. It was a pretty solid flick. I haven't seen Disney's live-action Jungle Book, mostly because I wanted to see Andy Serkis direct a version with a clean palette. The CGI wasn't as photorealistic as I've seen other attempts at CGI animals, but I actually liked how stylized the animals were better than what little footage I saw from the Disney version's trailers. The more they roughed up the faces of the animals, the better I think the CGI played out, whereas the cleaner looking animals never looked as good. Benedict Cumberbatch killed it as Shere Khan, and Cate Blanchett was mesmerizing as Kaa. I loved Andy Serkis' performance as Baloo. My only real complaint is that the scenes in the Man Village were all boring to look at. The cinematography was never able to visually compensate for not having fantastical-looking animals on screen, and it didn't seem like a creative decision either. It was more like they shot the village scenes in the same way they shot the jungle scenes, but they simply weren't as interesting to look at because the cool animals were replaced with boring people. But other than that, the rest of the movie is pretty good, and the musical score was great too.

Now I feel I can watch the Disney version, but I have to say, I don't know if I'll be as entertained with a completely photorealistic, authentic looking bear as I was with Andy Serkis' more definable visual character aesthetic. It's just a shame that this movie was "dumped" onto Netflix rather than given a proper theatrical release. It also doesn't help that Warner Brothers seems to look like it's constantly crapping the bed with their Disney competitors. DC sucked (it's sucked since MoS), and now Mowgli has a hard time performing as well as it should what with Disney making live-action version of their entire old library, which are rarely ever creative looking at all. (I've only seen their LA Beauty and the Beast, and it was an unimaginative and tedious chore to sit through.)


Yeah this is just how I felt about the village scenes they felt hollow and tacked on, also though the book is dark and the movie nails this and gets that the whole deal that Mowgli showing fire to Shere khan is in reality the first half of the story the village fight with him is the only interesting thing in the second half and changing Mowgli human father figure (Who was Indian in the book and believed Mowgli was his long lost dead son) to a white British hunter is really problematic.

Like its on the nose message about why trophy hunting was wrong in this time period and that the white hunter was an issue but in a modern movie it feels so out of place and does nothing but slow and drag Mowgli's story and means he never develops interesting relationships with the villages like the novel as the key point of that was they never got him ether as being from both worlds means he's never fully taken in by both sides.

My only other nit pick with this film is I wish it had just been lighter in places as the constant darkness is leaning on grim dark territory and hurts the narrative as it makes a second watch hard.

Speed

Still a good one! Popcorn action flick that hits all the right notes of seriousness and levity. Dennis Hopper is a superb villain.

Seeing the girl from Transporter 1 kicking ass on tons of men and one duel with a female equal is all sorts of excellent. Bonus points for the scene of her and the male gangster grinding due to her taking over him driving the car down a flight of stairs. :tongue:

Men and Chicken- 8/10
Very absurd black comedy from Denmark, starring Mads Mikkelsen. One critic described it as the Three Stooges visit the Island of Dr Moreau, which is pretty bang-on. Go into it fresh without any prior knowledge. I'd highly recommend if you like weird, almost uncomfortable comedy like The Lobster.
