    "Mason & Dixon is my favourite Pynchon, I love that book. Again though I dunno how successful or worthwhile a film of it could be really"
    Lost my copy of that book while drunk. What happens after the second time they set off from England?

    @VV Yeah, Temple of Doom looks very different to me now compared to when I first watched it at the age of 7. It's best when they just stick to Indy vs Nazis.

    Ghostbusters generally works even after the 20th time of watching. Failsafe. Even #2 is far from bad. Kill Bill 1 and 2 are another easygoing (well...) pair that don't get tired.

    go with the first back to the future. or the second one.

    or try something more recent like that ryan gosling film with emma stone and steve carrel.

    im worried that i cant think of too many positive and happy films to recommend. apart from pixar stuff or cartoons. i liked rio!

    This is the least surprising rape accusation in the history of mankind right here. I'm sorry.

    I concur. There isn't exactly gonna be anyone saying "He seemed like such a nice guy, kept himself to himself..." - he pretty much claimed he had an affair with Natassja (sp) until she threatened to sue him. Total cunt through and through.

    I enjoyed this article a lot

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/13/ma...anted=all&_r=0

    I'm also looking forward to the film a lot - Paul Schrader and Brett Easton Ellis making a noir pastiche with a porn star on a micro-budget and a troubled set. It's got all the makings of some kind of beautiful mess. Sometimes I think that noir pastiche is my favourite kind of film.

    that does sound good! never realised Paul Schrader was so down on his luck, is that really the case?

    I dunno. And how can Brett Easton Ellis be anything than a multimillionaire? I wonder if those aspects were played down somehow.

    The dude who made Primer has got a new film coming out. It debuted at Sundance, and will be playing at the O2 when Sundance comes to London. It's called Upstream Color.

    this looks interesting -

    THE REP reveals that the passion for a cinematic experience is still alive. The question is, will a greater audience recognize their cultural value before it’s too late?

    The film follows the lives of three uber film geeks during the first year of operations of a single-screen repertory cinema. Dubbed ‘The Underground Cinema’ by its gang of misfits, Alex, Charlie and Nigel will stop at nothing to see their theatre succeed. In the face of strong competition from big box theatres, local cinematheques and home video, it’s a constant struggle to stay afloat. Throw in 12-hour workdays, having no semblance of a personal life and all the normal stresses of working day in/day out with the same people… things couldn’t be much more of an uphill battle.

    THE REP also takes a broader look at the world of repertory cinema in North America. Currently being devalued by studios, corporate theatres and patrons themselves, movies have become less of an experience and more of an activity. Watching a film is something you just do to pass the time, rather than the event and spectacle they once were. Repertory cinema is an ever-shrinking but ever-passionate world of film lovers trying to keep the experience of cinema alive.

    The film features interviews with theatres such as Film Forum in NYC, The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, The New Beverly Cinema in L.A., The Hollywood Theatre in Portland, The Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene and Blue Sunshine in Montreal. It also features celebrity commentary from Kevin Smith, John Waters, Atom Egoyan, George A. Romero and many more.

    Has anybody got a copy of Angus MacKinnon's 'Apocalypse Now' review from NME December 1979, by any chance?

    The Diana film looks like an all-time classic of bad cinema, from the initial reviews. A straight-to-DVD release might have been more fitting.
