I've really been catching up on the "movies to watch" list in my head.

Trainspotting is next.

Can someone please explain to me what the hell Pulp Fiction is? Is it comedy? Drama? Action? Thriller? Horror? Ultra-violence-for-the-sake-of-it?

And what the hell is the gimp?

I'm too scared to see it.


Has ANYONE seen The Castle?

OMFG

Love Trainspotting. Good luck, there's some tough scenes but an overall good portrayal of a very difficult addiction. Love the scene where they all get together in another attempt at kicking the habit and go to the great outdoors to walk to the top of the hill. Also, I love the ending rap. No wonder people turn to smack. (to the movie, not heroin)

The band sounds good, but what I really think is strange about this trailer is how heavily Marty is featured. Who's the subject of this thing? If you watch The Last Waltz, you can see Marty interviewing The Band, but they don't really show his face. Here, Marty was in half the shots!

I love the guy to death, but is he now a celebrity because he finally won his Oscar? Is the film about the band or about making the film about the band? Or is all this behind-the-scenes stuff just for the trailer, to set up what's going on?

I'm planning on checking this out either way. But I have a feeling this was pushed back to next spring because they were afraid of competing with the U2 3-D concert film, which would probably kick its ass all over the place.

Pulp Fiction is mainly a character drama about different sets of people (hitmen, a washed-up boxer, etc...) connected by a soulless mob boss.

It has moments of violence, but it's few and far between. Most of the movie is sharp dialogue going back in forth between two characters. It's also non-linear, which is amazing, btw.

The Gimp is some dude that two sadists keep in the basement of their shop. When Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames are captured... yeah. I don't recall seeing anything explicit, but it's all implied.

The best film of the 80s is Return of the Killer Tomatoes.

DEAL WITH IT.

Being a huge Neil Gaiman fan, I'm dying to see "Stardust" (that in Italy will only be out in October if all goes well...)...just curious to see if they were able to recreate the atmosphere of the book...I'm not expecting a masterpiece but it's nice to see Gaiman start to have a bit more credit for his talent.

Agreed. I thought it was awesome. I love it when Sick Boy and Renton pick off that pit bull and it starts attacking its owner.

While I enjoyed Trainspotting at the time, I still think it glamourizes drugs to a certain extent (even with the OD scene). While they can be fun, for a time, I don't know that you leave the film thinking "I need to stay away from that shit".

Requiem for a Dream, on the other hand, really shows the forces you're playing with when you get too deep into drug use.

One is a fun film that has memorable lines and a high re-watch factor, the latter a nightmare you won't want to live again anytime soon.
