2005 Oscars Blow By Blow
Topic: Movies 3:01 pm EST, Mar  1, 2005

After seeing this, I want to watch again and compare. Lovely zingers like--

]Billy Bush is a little too chipper about "the genocide of civil war." ]It's "Hotel Rwanda," not "Bringing Down the House."

I, ROBOT / ** (PG-13)

] As for the robots, they function like the giant insects
] in "Starship Troopers," as video game targets. You can't
] even be mad at them, since they're only programs.
] Although, come to think of it, you can be mad at
] programs; Microsoft Word has inspired me to rage far
] beyond anything these robots engender.

Going to a movie for free because you're a reviewer? Cool.
Having to sit through crap, but maybe a good popcorn movie? Ok
Getting to slam Microsoft in a movie review? Priceless.

There's some things money can't buy, for everything else, I accept cash.

Moore: pirate my film, no problem - [Sunday Herald]
Topic: Movies 5:39 pm EDT, Jul  9, 2004

] The activist, author and director told the Sunday Herald
] that, as long as pirated copies of his film were not
] being sold, he had no problem with it being downloaded.
] "I don't agree with the copyright laws and I
] don't have a problem with people downloading the
] movie and sharing it with people as long as they're
] not trying to make a profit off my labour. I would oppose
] that," he said.
] "I do well enough already and I made this film
] because I want the world, to change. The more people who
] see it the better, so I'm happy this is
] happening."
] Defenders of Moore’s position include Pulp Fiction
] director Quentin Tarantino, who earlier this year
] encouraged audiences in countries where his films are
] not legally available to obtain counterfeit copies.
] Valenti said: “Nobody can allow their rights to be
] stolen because, if you can’t retrieve your investment,
] you’re out of the movie business,
] "I don't think there's really a single
] actor or director in the world who does not believe that
] if you don't combat piracy, it will devour you in
] the future."

Jack Valenti, meet Mr. Moore and Mr. Tarentino. Both had had
movies at the top of the box office charts now, maybe you've
heard of them? While there is a nuance to what you say that
would let you weasel out a defensible position, it doesn't look
good. Moore and Tarentino's views are both influenced based ON
MPAA policies (ratings, getting the word out for the first,
market/region encoding in the second) not because they are
disinterested in money or hate the movie industry.

Go Michael! Tell Jack Valenti to kiss your pretty damn expansive white ass! LOL

a few short movie reviews
Topic: Movies 1:36 am EDT, Jul 24, 2003

Phonebooth - Well acted, nice cast, stupid movie.

Shanghai Knights - Fun with Jackie Chan. Lots of bad jokes and screwy historical references. Watchable.

Gangs of New York - Daniel Day Lewis is amazing. Even Leo and Cameron Diaz can't ruin this movie. Watch it.

Basic - Travolta and Jackson doing an odd version of Rashomon. Watched it twice because it was realy weird. Watch this too.

The Recruit - More Colin Farrell with the exception that this one is good unlike Phonebooth. Worth watching but see the other two first.

More to come later!
