    only a mental midget would think that i was trying to get a response out of you with that post ... or even the first one you responded to. So you can just go right ahead and fuck off Mr. "i dont care about what they say but i care about what they think" :lol:

    I heard Phoenix won an award for Joker, is that true? Gotta celebrate if it is.

    The question was not wondering why he cannot "admit success" but rather think it's a top10 film if not higher. that's what the link had. very fascinating to see Zodiac on the same level as Fargo and some other gems, which I already forgot

    Listened to his podcast with Conan O'Brien and I think I hate Jesse more
    Gotta see I Know The Devil again, but Burning that high is a bummer, what a let down. Poetry/Parasite 1-2 is going to be the common opinion though. Yellow Sea was fantatsic, definitely recommend seeing that one.


    Just finished Pain and Glory, and I guess I don't understand why the film didn't end around it's more satisfying climax around 70 minutes in rather than 110, but came off as Banderas doing the Oscar bait thing.

    Saw 1917 as well, glad it didn't win more oscars but also the director couldn't help demonstrating the same old tired trope of good guy westerners and bad guys not as west-westerners. Pretty lame film, and probably demonstrates why WWI lacks a prominent footprint in film

    Re-watched Parasite after it's victory and I still think the Dad slowly transforms into a more widespread figure rather than his character throughout. Makes me happy I still enjoyed it the 2nd time around and through first viewing, I remember thinking the family was more like a parasite, when in reality -- they are not. Great stuff

    Free morning so I'm squeezing a VHS in:

    Same director as Battletruck, noticeably better film, bigger names in the cast. Still carsploitation madness though!

    I forgot how violent that was. The gang shootings in that last segment are nasty. Amazing squib work. "Welcome to Hell, muthafuckas!"

    Zodiac is no Memories of Murder, but it's an excellent film and Fincher's finest work. It blends the darkness of the subject matter with an offbeat humor that's difficult to express, its procedural elements are enticing, and the killings/attempted killings are depicted in an unrelenting light (I still cringe during the stabbing scene at the lake). On top of that, it features well-developed characters portrayed by fantastic actors. There aren't many flaws in it, from a formal standpoint. I think it occasionally drags, but then it recovers by drawing viewers back in with another turn of the screw.

    I also think Zodiac occupies a unique place in Fincher's development as a director. From Alien 3 until Fight Club, his films had a grainy, grimy feel--an appropriate look, but it could be argued stylistically overbearing. By the time he hit The Social Network, his films exhibited a sleekness that was almost too clean--again, appropriate but possibly overbearing. Zodiac occupies a fascinating middle ground between a flawed but compelling entry (Panic Room) and a mediocre entry (Benjamin Button). It's where he started to develop his sleeker style but before he turned to more pop-culture subject matter.

    At any rate, I wouldn't fret about a top-notch director including it in their top ten list.

    Saw the new Jumanji yesterday.
    It was okay with a few laughs thrown in but there wasn't really anything new or exciting in it.

    Apparently this new Batman film will focus more on his early detective work and less on the larger-than-life superhero stuff. At least that's what I heard.
