Re: Filmimplist Conversations

A movie of sufficient gravitas to merit an entry here of its own. Let me know if this film rang your bells. I'd love to discuss it.

The Tree of Life ***00 I found it hard to rate this...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Yes, you're right, JM. We oughta write them down. However, if they are truly dire, rather than just not to our taste, then they do tend to appear in the mini-reviews!

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

It may be worth mentioning that, interspersed with the movies I've reviewed, we started and abandoned quite a number of other films offered by Sky Movies. To be frank, there probably aren't more than...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

I have since watched two animated movies: Winnie the Pooh (Disney) and Princess Mononoke (Ghibli)

I didn't think much of them:

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Over Easter, I saw again the first film I ever saw - Bambi - when I was 3 or 4. Remember, in 1945, in Edinburgh, there was no such thing as tv, so I probably thought it was real. According to my...

Just watched Zatoichi, recorded from sky arts. It's on again on Thursday at quarter after midnight (i.e. late Wednesday night). Don't miss it if you have access to Sky Arts!

Uh.. you're right, of course. The love scenes were interminable, but the nudity was fleeting.

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Despite having a Sky movie subscription, we find we are more often watching Film 4 or Channel 4 movies, and renting from LoveFilm. The Sky movie channels seem to be dominated by teen, 'seasons'...

Just saw Evita and liked it - see Filmimplists 2012 (http://palimpsest.org.uk/forum/showpost.php?p=128174&postcount=11) - but I must mention that at the end of the movie there's one of these small ...

Oh, yes. And he told me. It was like:

"What's the secret of life?"
"It's a secret."
"Oh."

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Sorry to take 3 months to respond, Bill.

"Embrace the mystery"? Fair enough. Perhaps I lack gravitas.

I see a lot of movies (see my list) and, frankly, it didn't grip me in time to enjoy it.

I seem to be having a run of lame movies right now. Can anyone tell me the point of Greenberg, A Serious Man, or Synecdoche, NY?

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Nope. I have to say that, with very few exceptions, my love of sf does not extend to the movie medium, and certainly not to the Roger Corman end of the spectrum.

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

Yes, Bergman is like that. The silent, unmoving spaces in the movie are almost more important than the action and words that separate them.

When we lived in Sweden, we rented a house very like...

Yes, a shame. Most of the top ones from A Man for All Seasons have gone. Notably, the wonderful Henry VIII - Robert Shaw who died at 51 in the 70s, Orson Welles, Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern.

Hah! And the director of that episode was Alistair Reid, with whom I was at school. He used to star in the school plays in which I was usually Props and Second Spear Carrier. More vicarious fame.

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

I make no guarantees, as I don't know how it measured up to the book, but, as a film, it was pretty raw, I must say.
