Movies to Watch

Robert “Mariachi” Rodriguez’s new movie and, from last year, a really exciting project featuring 15 gods of cinema directing 10 minutes each. There’s Kaurismaki, Herzog, Jarmusch (genius. see all his films!) Wenders, Spike Lee, Schlondorff, Claire Denis and … drumroll …. GODARD!

Ten minutes older. I don’t think the DVD is out though, what a waste.

a….a………”Once Upon a Time In Mexico”….?
ever noticed why Salma Hayek had the same scream repeated thrice in the trailer?…. hmmmmm

Think my best movie is still “City Of God” by Katia Lund and Fernando Meirelles!

hihi, its me again….

I was actually wondering, how does a designer keep track of local design trends in Singapore? I mean trends come and go and there’s no fix designer that has his own style influenced by other countires all the time…..

So my question is how do a designer actually trace out design trends in S’pore?

*scratch head Gabra*…

P.S. Sorry to turn your blog into a “forum” like thingy… hehehe

Posted by: Gabby at September 19, 2003 11:41 PM

personally i feel it’s not as important to keep track of trends then to know what’s going on.

know who the players are, what they’re doing, the kind of projects they’re up to etc.

not just the local companies, but the international ones as well. read the mags, visit sites like designinteract etc etc. Or just visit the links on this blog!

Posted by: jimmy at September 22, 2003 11:02 PM

I think some kind of discussion and exchange is important for designers. Especially if you’re working in a smallish firm, it’s important to exchange ideas with other designer. That’s why I think forums are important. And in a while, I’ll post some links to designer forums.

On a separate note, do you guys know that we have a forum app on the Manic server too? Lenny set it up a while ago.

But the most important thing to do, IMHO, is to surf!

The Rolling Stone says: “At the risk of understatement, The Matrix Revolutions sucks.”

Ouch.

Posted by: jimmy at November 5, 2003 11:59 PM

Can I watch the matrix revolution please?
I really want to take the red pill

Posted by: Scotch at November 6, 2003 12:11 AM

This is the quandary of the Matrix non-fan: I dun want to pay $8 to watch special effects and bad acting, but I do want to know how they tie up the whole series.

The solution? Find spoilers on the WWW! Some guys in the States who have watched it have already posted the whole movie’s description. So … i know how it ends! And I can wait for the DVD!

hahaha

Posted by: jimmy at November 6, 2003 01:29 AM

This is one I’m really looking forward to: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

The official website is not up yet, but you can view the trailer at rotten tomatoes.

Directed by Michel Gondry, one of the most creative music video directors ever. The movie stars Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Elijah Wood and Kirsten Dunst and will be released in March 2004.

Posted by: jimmy at November 9, 2003 10:57 PM

Watched Love Actually yesterday. It felt rather empty, actually.

Posted by: Karen at December 15, 2003 05:12 PM

MONSTER, starring charlize Theron has got the critics raving.

apparently, its a given that the best actress oscar is going her way next March.

Take a gorgeous star, make her unglamourous, “normal”, and/or heavier by 20 pounds, and give her either a controversial role - and you’ve got an oscar performance.

Think Halle Berry (2001) and Julia Roberts in 2000 (to a lesser extent, but she was “normal” in erin brockovich).

Posted by: jimmy at December 24, 2003 12:28 AM

watched love me if you dare (jeux d’enfants). karen prefers it to amelie but im not so sure. I thought the director was a little gimmicky, and I found out today that he’s an animator turned film director.

Posted by: jimmy at January 27, 2004 12:31 AM

Another reason to watch Lost In Translation - Just Like Honey by the Jesus & Mary Chain is on the soundtrack!!!!

They played it several times during the Golden Globes when Sofia Copolla went up to collect the awards.

Awesome.

Posted by: jimmy at January 27, 2004 12:35 AM

I thought the lead actress was edgier and more real than Audrey Tatou. And I liked the story too. I like the long, self-imposed separations.

Posted by: Karen at January 27, 2004 12:43 AM

Caught Lost in Translation. Disappointed.

Think Sofia did a much better job with Virgin Suicides, probably becos it wasnt her script. LIT is filled with comic cliches - every japanese says R as L, the commercial director talks and talks but gets a one-line translation, bad karaoke … i was almost too embarassed to laugh most of the time.

The show isnt bad, it just isnt that good. I think Sofia’s script is not strong enough, and halfway through the story starts to meander. And visually, it’s all cliched as well. Tokyo … karaoke, video games arcade, pachinko parlour, neon lights, ikebana, buddhist temple. Expect the expected.

What was worst in the movie: Characters were one-dimensional. Middle aged, has-been actor, complete with boring wife and crying kids. Young, Yale philosophy graduate complete with rock star photographer husband who’d rather hang out with movie stars then discuss Descartes with her. Excuse me, but that’s just too easy.

There were some nice touches though. My favourite part was at the end when he whispers in her ear at a crucial moment of the plot. We get to decide how the story will continue for these 2.

To be honest, I’ve been baffled by the hype surrounding Sofia Copolla. Years ago, she made a very average music video for the Chemical Brothers and it won awards and rave reviews. Virgin Suicides was good, but LIT confuses me. I guess who your father is does matter.

For once Jimmy writes something that I totally agree with. But the punctuation! Ouch.

Since we’re talking films on a type blog, did anyone see & notice the typography in Kill Bill?

For some reason it made me angry. I wonder if that was the intent? I think for people who don’t pay much attention to type, it would just make them feel a little uneasy, though they wouldn’t be able to tell you why. The titles between scenes could have been a moment for the audience to catch their breath and reflect on what they’d seen. Instead it seemed to be another psychological tool to keep the audience mentally off balance for the next sucker punch. If that was the intent, I think it was successful.

Maybe it was just supposed to be “edgy”. Either way it was certainly original.

If you’re a type nut, you should see it just for the titles. They’re so unconvential, they’re remarkable if only for that reason.

Posted by: Dave Combs at March 2, 2004 04:03 AM

Did anyone see Kill Bill? The typography was so unconventional it’s remarkable if only for its peculiarity.

Is it some design movement that I slept through in class?

Was it done by a film student who just discovered there are more fonts than Helvetica installed on his/her Mac?

Was it another of Tarantino’s ingenious innovations that won’t be appreciated for at least 20 years?

Surely someone else saw it and can enlighten me.

Please.

For anyone who’s ever wondered about the fantastic actress who played the 600 pound Momma in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, here’s a little story about Darlene Cates.

Posted by: jimmy at April 9, 2004 02:39 AM

I saw “Love me if you dare” (Jeux d’enfants) a couple days ago and absolutely loved it, if only because I’m still naive enough to empathize with the main characters and not worry about what’s going on in their environment.

the end had me going through a loop but I still loved it… not sure if I would say it’s better then Amelie… despite small similarities i would say that they are hugely different in mood (though perhaps not in tone)

absolutely loved it

Posted by: olivia at June 12, 2004 01:56 AM

if you’ve watched “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, you’ve think it beats “Love Me If You Dare” hands down in terms of the concept of love and the creativity. Really, you’ll love it… go watch “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” before the screening ends soon.

(And i’m eagarly waiting for the soundtrack of “Eternal Sunshine”. It’s out of stock both in HMV and Borders!!!)

Jimmy, have you watched the “Eternal” yet?

Posted by: ckexpress at June 13, 2004 02:59 PM

I think the world of Michel Gondry, but didnt catch Eternal at the cinema. Guess i’ll watch it on dvd.

Movies i’m looking forward to:
PIXAR’s latest - The Incredibles

M Night’s The Village

Posted by: jimmy at July 10, 2004 12:51 AM

Just watched Tim Burton’s Big Fish. I like.

Gothika is so bad not even Matthieu Kassovitz, a truly talented director, could save it.

Posted by: jimmy at September 1, 2004 12:18 AM

Marty’s back!

Posted by: jimmy at December 11, 2004 01:14 AM

And wow, the early reviews are phenomenal. Apparently it’s Marty’s best since Goodfellas and Leonardo’s best work yet.

Several critics are calling it best pic of the year. Could 2005 finally be Marty’s Oscar year?

There’s also Cate Blanchett as Katherine Hepburn and Kate Beckinsdale as Ava Gardner. Wow.

Forget Danny Ocean, I want to watch this!

Posted by: jimmy at December 11, 2004 01:42 AM

OK, saw the Aviator. Awesome but still some way behind Goodfellas and Raging Bull. Guess it isnt too fair to keep comparing Scorsese’s work to these 2 films.

Posted by: jimmy at January 13, 2005 11:42 PM

Hi guys, I’m new to this whole blogging thing, but I really like movies and y’all sounded like a fun group to join. So, has anybody seen Million Dollar Baby?? I like Clint Eastwood as a director and Morgan Freeman is awesome. I really liked the movie, it was deep, emotional, some awesome fight scenes (boxing that is) and there were some dry funny parts too. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend it, and if you have, let me know what you think.

Posted by: sarah at January 27, 2005 07:05 AM

unfortunately, Million Dollar Baby will only be in Singapore in middle to late Feb.

Never been a fan of Clint Eastwood as a director (i’m thinking Unforgiven and Mystic River) but I’m looking forward to this one though.

Posted by: jimmy at January 27, 2005 03:23 PM

Sideways was very cool. If you happen to be ambivalent about wine, be prepared to no longer be after seeing it!

hhp

Posted by: Hrant at February 2, 2005 06:52 AM

We finally caught Sideways last night. Been a long time since I watched a movie with so much heart, and with so much great acting. Perfectly casted. Reminds me to put American Splendour on the top of my must watch list, just to see Paul Giamatti all over again.

Posted by: jimmy at March 8, 2005 12:02 AM

Sin City, the movie everyone’s waiting for. Before Star Wars arrives in May, that is.

Posted by: jimmy at March 8, 2005 12:22 AM

OK, the 3.5 dvds that we watched over the extremely hot long weekend (this is the hottest month in God knows how many years) were…

Donnie Darko (Liked it until I watched the director’s commentary. How strange.)
Wait Until Dark (Liked this one. Hee hee, so funny to watch the retro melodramatic acting.)
Maria Full of Grace (This one’s alright)
Kiki’s Delivery Service (halfway through)

Btw, Ocean’s Twelve sucked BIG TIME. We watched this one weekend ago.

Posted by: Karen at May 5, 2005 11:00 AM

Really? Quite sure you were half asleep by the time the director’s commentary came on. :)

“Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?”

“That’s what’s so illogical about being a Smurf. What’s the point of living if you don’t have a dick?”

Nasa says this will be the hottest year in hundreds of years.

Posted by: Hrant at May 6, 2005 01:45 AM

What luck! They’ve just shown High Fidelity on TV! Been wanting to see it for some time now. It’s pretty good. But there are some bits I don’t remember from the book.

Posted by: Karen at May 8, 2005 01:30 AM

We caught Closer on DVD over the weekend. I liked it quite a bit, especially Clive Owen, who was an acting behemoth in the show.

I loved it when he hissed at Julia Roberts, who had just admitted cheating on him, “That’s the spirit, thanks for your honesty. Now F*** off and die, you F***ed up slag.”

Apparently he played the same role on the London stage before he did the movie, so perhaps thats why he’s so convincing.

Posted by: jimmy at May 9, 2005 09:59 PM

Sin City is supposed to be released on 26th of May but as far as my memory goes, I’ve not seen a single trailer or a single poster for the movie, as opposed to Star Wars, which is everywhere. Someone at Hardware Zone claimed ST said it was going to be released on 21st July. Either way, there should be at least some promotional material at this stage… Or have I not been going to the movies enough?

Oh Karen, Ocean’s 12 was a fantastic show, all the way until the ending when you think to youself, “Did I just sit through 2 hours for that crap?”

Posted by: Randy at May 10, 2005 08:58 PM

Finally, I saw the posters for Sin City at Bugis. It says “Opening 26th May”. Fantastic. And Jessica Alba is oh-so-hot.

Posted by: Randy at May 12, 2005 11:45 PM

OK, so we just finished watching Revenge of The Sith about an hour ago at the preview, 3 days before the worldwide release!

Courtesy of young Randy’s generous gift, which he so selflessly gave up, Jedi-like.

(Warning: Slight spoilers ahead)

It’s far better than Ep II. Less mushiness and more action, 4 very good light sabre duels (Anakin/Obi-wan vs Dooku, Anakin vs General Grevious, Yoda vs Sidious, Anakin vs Obi-Wan).

Because ROTS ties everything together, there are some amazing plot jumps. We also get to see Yoda’s toes (i’m not a big star wars fan but im quite sure we havent seen these before), what he looks like without his robe and why we dont get to see him at all in Ep 4.

There’s also a reference to Qui-Gon Jinn at the end of the movie i did not quite understand. I dont remember him mentioned at all in Ep 4, 5 or 6.

Also, if I recall correctly, it was Obi-Wan who gave young Luke in Ep 4 his father’s light sabre. And in the fight scene at the end of ROTS, Obi-Wan clearly did not retrieve Anakin’s LS.

Oh well, Star Wars was never about plot, or a good script, or great acting. And in so many ways, Ep 3 is much much better than Ep 1 and 2.

Posted by: jimmy at May 17, 2005 12:30 AM
…it was Obi-Wan who gave young Luke in Ep 4 his father’s light sabre. And in the fight scene at the end of ROTS, Obi-Wan clearly did not retrieve Anakin’s LS.

Maybe, after meeting young Luke, Obi-wan went to buy an Anakin Light Sabre® from a Darth Mall.

*hur hur hur*

Posted by: jaffry at May 18, 2005 12:06 AM

This thread is messy!

WTF! It’s true! They’re using Comic Sans on the Sin City Posters! So insanely ridiculous.

Thankfully, they are using Anime Ace on the website..

It’s nice, when professional type designers give away useful fonts for free. And it’s also nice to see a freebie being used well. It’s like, “You don’t have to be rich to be clever.”

Posted by: Karen at May 18, 2005 12:40 AM

Woo hoo. Now we can have anchors in the comments! Esp for never-ending threads like this.

Posted by: Karen at May 18, 2005 01:16 AM

Well at least comic sans was used appropriately this time, in relation to comics.

Posted by: Ernest at May 18, 2005 01:44 AM

It’s not as bad as Marriott using Comic Sans on all their toiletries, in gold ink, no less. :) I got a pix.

Posted by: Karen at May 18, 2005 09:37 AM

jimmy: i just watched RotS and…

There’s also a reference to Qui-Gon Jinn at the end of the movie i did not quite understand. I dont remember him mentioned at all in Ep 4, 5 or 6.

i remember obi-wan talking to nobody in particular in his cave in ep 4 or 5… he probably was on the line with qui-gon, and we now know how/why.

Also, if I recall correctly, it was Obi-Wan who gave young Luke in Ep 4 his father’s light sabre. And in the fight scene at the end of ROTS, Obi-Wan clearly did not retrieve Anakin’s LS.

after reading this, i watched that scene really closely, and he does pick up anakin’s light sabre. anyway, i can confirm it all over again for you cos i’m catching it once more (in d-i-g-i-t-a-l) tomorrow. haha.

(the digital version apparently contains 3 extra minutes of footage.)

Posted by: jaffry at May 19, 2005 12:40 AM

I can’t wait to see ROTS, mostly because it might erase the bad taste from Ep1&2… BTW, don’t forget to take this quiz:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4509737.stm
I got 13/14 correct. May the force be with me. :->

And Karen, share those pix, please!!
That’s a mûst, as Cartier would say… in Comic Sans.

hhp

Posted by: Hrant at May 19, 2005 12:44 AM

AH. Just got back from Ep 3 and I can’t stop making lightsabre sounds. WEOWWW. Ep 3 was def. THE best among 1, 2 and 3, but not like we didn’t know that already.

Anyway, it’s confirmed - Obi Wan DID retrieve Anakin’s sabre after the fight, I specifically watched out for that. And the last part really was a cheap shot by Lucas to tie lose ends up, about being one with the force and explaning why Obi Wan was talking to himself.

BUT REALLY WHO CARES? I think it was a great movie, with loads of action.

Oh and I have to agree with you, Jimmy, Mace Windu is an idiot. Ho ho, I want to be a jedi.

Posted by: Randy at May 19, 2005 10:30 PM

Now to buy the 6 set DVD box set.

Up next, Sin City.

Posted by: Ernest at May 19, 2005 11:11 PM

is there really 3 min of extra footage in digital? did i watch the digital or non-digital? oh, the questions .. !

there must be at least 20 years between ep 3 and ep 4. i dont buy the theory of obi-wan talking to QGJ from the “nether world” at all.

maybe Hrant, with 13/14, can clarify. i only got 8 right.

Posted by: jimmy at May 20, 2005 12:06 AM

> i dont buy the theory of obi-wan talking
> to QGJ from the “nether world” at all.

But the concept of The Force is just fine? :-)

Gimme time to actually see Ep3…

Posted by: Hrant at May 20, 2005 02:28 AM

Watched Zoolander last weekend along with World without Thieves. Zoolander was funny, but you have to be in a happy mood to watch it, otherwise it’s just stupid.

Posted by: Karen at June 1, 2005 02:17 PM

Magnum!

Anyone caught Sin City yet? Thinking of watching it on the imax screen. It’s apprently the same price as normal screens.

Posted by: Randy at June 1, 2005 08:08 PM

Watched Fatal Attraction for the first time last night. Distracted the whole time by Glenn Close’s high forehead and poodle hairstyle.

Posted by: Karen at June 19, 2005 04:30 PM

Just watched Batman Begins. I finally saw the new DC logo. But that aside, it was a kick ass movie. I’d rate it almost up there with ROTS. I really love the way they potrayed the dark side of Batman, and how he became the caped crusader he was. And for once, the villians actually look scary.

Also, with Liam Neeson acting, I could half imagine him drawing his lightsabre :P

Posted by: Randy at June 21, 2005 10:37 PM

So I just finally caught Episode 3. Amazing movie, one of the best I’ve seen - much better than I expected. No stupid comic relief - very intense, both in emotion and action - reminds nicely of the original long, long ago, in a state of youth far, far away. I especially liked the little things, like catching a glimpse of the young Grand Moff Tarkin on the sidelines.

BTW, Jimmy, I don’t get the problem with the QGJ thing. What does the gap in years have to do with anything? And sure, we don’t see any of it in Episode 4, but we do see that sort of thing in Episodes 4, 5 and 6. Remember the sappy “family photo” at the very end? Or maybe I’m not getting your drift.

hhp

Posted by: Hrant at July 8, 2005 09:53 AM

What I didnt quite get when I watched it was why Yoda told Obi-Wan that he had contacted QGJ and had spoken to him. I dont quite see how that ties up with anything in EP 4-6. He didnt say what QGJ said, so I presumed the act of contacting QGJ is more the point than what was said. But why do we need to know that QGJ is contactable?

Hrant, you’re right, time has nothing to do with it since we’re dealing with the Force.

And speaking of family photo at the very end, why wasnt QGJ there? If im not wrong, it was YODA, Anakin and Obi Wan.

As you can tell, I’m no SW afficionado, so i’m probably missing something here.

Posted by: Jimmy at July 11, 2005 11:56 PM

Jimmy, don’t get me wrong, I think those are good questions - and I’m only guessing at answers. I would remind you of something though: this is all still Hollywood.

> why Yoda told Obi-Wan that he had contacted QGJ and had spoken to him.

Maybe just to cheer him up? Obi-Wan was pretty distraut from Anakin’s turning, and when he heard about QGJ’s ghost he was beaming, remember? And Yoda is old enough to realize the need for psychology. More to the point, from a movie-making perspective I would say that Lucas is doing to us what Yoda does to Obi-Wan: cheer us up. Obi-Wan, after all, was the [positive] hero of Episode 3 (to me at least). Plus this was the last movie, and you can’t end it on too much of a down note… at least not it THIS town.

> why wasnt QGJ there?

Because Liam Neeson was too young? :->
How should I know, man! :-)

hhp

Posted by: Hrant at July 12, 2005 03:53 AM

Hrant - thats a nice spin on things :)

I did read somewhere that Yoda contacting QGJ meant that QGJ had become one with the Force or something like that. Some even say that he had become a stronger Jedi than Yoda.

Also, Lucas apparently toyed with the idea of digitally adding QGJ into the family photo at the end of Ep 6 but didnt go ahead with it.

Posted by: Jimmy at July 12, 2005 11:07 AM

> QGJ had become one with the Force

If I were him I’d rather have become one with Aayla Secura (the nicest dead Jedi this side of the Outer Rim). Ouch.
