no, not yet. I haven't seen much HK stuff recently, but I've got a long list to check out.
Hm okay, I just downloaded it so I'll post about it sometime tomorrow maybe. It's supposed to be pretty good.
I still don't really know which Zhang Yimou film is my favorite. I knew a guy who was kind of obsessed with him so I've seen Ju Dou, Not One Less, Shanghai Triad, To Live, Hero, The Road Home, and Raise the Red Lantern. I guess the latter is probably my fave of his due to its lush cinematography (great use of color), excellent direction, and superb acting (specifically Gong Li). yeah.
went to Saw last night- not as horrific as expected, but pretty suspenseful and enough twists to be interesting. Seven was more stomach churning, but this worked pretty well.
I watched Saw on DVD so the quality was awful, but I thougt it was somewhat interesting--the acting/dialogue was unbelievably bad, though.
I'll register my disapproval of THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW and NATIONAL TREASURE (x10) on this thread.
I just saw House of Flying Daggers and I really liked it. It seems that a lot of people think it's really bad but I'm not sure why. Movie message boards are frustrating.
Also I saw The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and I thought that was pretty good and funny. If you haven't heard of it and like crappy 50s sci fi, check the trailer here: http://www.apple.com/trailers/sony_pictures/lost_skeleton/
went to see finding neverland this weekend and...i dunno, eh. can't wait for charlie and the chocolate factory though.
did i mention that national treasure blew bonez
finding neverland was definitely better.
rented Yojimbo, but haven't finished it yet. will try tonight.
will likely rent another kurosawa one tomorrow- suggestions? only other i've seen is rashomon
Sanjuro and Yojimbo are faves, but you really can't go wrong if Toshiro Mifune is in it. Well, except for the Hidden Fortress which I thought was just mediocre.
Chupe, Ran is pretty good.
saw a used copy of the criterion version of yojimbo, and wanted to see it before buying. so far it's worth picking up.
pretty sure they had both ran and sanjuro
and i was looking at picking up house of flying daggers and read some mediocre reviews of it as well. it's fairly cheap on ebay ($10 with shipping)
Hm, let me know if you like HoFD if you decide to pick it up.
Has anyone seen Nosferatu the Vampyre?
being the Herzog version?
Yeah, the 79 one. I haven't seen the original but I just ordered the 79 one from Netflix. Seen it??
I own it!
I watched it on Halloween this year and also pre-Halloween (I think) last year. It's really good and there's some interesting permutations on the Dracula story...
I got really excited about it after I read Dracula in the summer, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Netflix rules.
last halloween chupe did a marathon of the original Nosferatu, the Herzog Nosferatu, and then Shadow of the Vampire. awesome triad.
I too endorse the Herzog Nosferatu
