Lazarus - apropo of nothing, are you a David Lynch fan?

I'm curious how Craig (dare I say it the first Bond that can, you know, act?) will do once Q and the gadgets come back and the movies will look more Bond-ish and not as much will rely on his tough performance and the action scenes.

This is true, but I think Craig's the first to match the toughness and coolness of Bond accurately. Sean Connery's still my favorite, but I think of him bagging Pussy Galore over any action scene, you know?

Interesting stuff about Hitchcock, one of my favorite things about Rear Window was the fact that it was on such a controlled location as I probably said earlier.

And NSFW, yeah, if I can't watch a movie more than once, I rate it low. Whether it be something like Schindler's List or even Zoolander, if it's not worth a second viewing, what's the point?

I have a question for the experts on Bond: are the following things I read on the internet elsewhere true ?

- Ian Fleming initially disliked Connery, but later turned out so impressed he gave Bond a partial Scottish origin. (I know Bond has some Scottish origins from that Lazenby Bond movie, but I never knew Connery inspired that bit)

- Ian Fleming preferred Moore over Connery. (really?)

- Dalton/Craig is the actor that got the closest to the book version of Bond. (which is it?)

Partially. I think his best films are The Elephant Man & Mulholland Dr. I enjoyed Twin Peaks: The Series, but thought the film was a piece of crap. I thought Lost Highway was one of the biggest wank-offs I've ever seen in my life.

Have yet to see Inland Empire but am worried it's more of the same.

The guy's immensely talented but has the tendency to disappear up his own asshole, and what's worse are the legions of fans who think they actually have explanations for what are likely often his masturbatory fantasies that have no point (like Lost Highway).

Kind of like a super-existential Terry Gilliam?

The short film prelude to Wes Anderson's new flick The Darjeeling Limited, Hotel Chevalier, is up for free on iTunes if you guys are interested.

I'm diggin' it so far.

I'm digging Natalie Portman's, err, commitment to the role.

I wouldn't mind booking a room at that hotel myself, if you know what I mean.

I'd order more than a grilled cheese sandwich.

Just watched it.

Very pretty, and very Anderson-esque if a bit meaningless. Though I'm sure it will carry a lot more weight once I've seen Darjeeling.

No, still haven't gotten around to it. It's one of those films I'm sure I'd appreciate but not one that I was ever dying to see.

It played for free on the Fox lot back when I worked there, so I saw it and enjoyed it. Hard to believe it was a Lynch film. My favorite Lynch film is Mullholland Drive, but I have a strong affinity for the mess that is Dune. It's a movie that I know is bad, but still is hypnotic to me. My love of the book(s) helps, I'm sure. Very much enjoyed the Twin Peaks TV series, especially season 1.

Eraserhead looks like the craziest shit ever, yet I'm still interested in it because of its influence on my fave Coen Bros. movie, Barton Fink.

So how about "There Will Be Blood" getting some of the most rave early reviews I've ever seen a film get?

Pretty badazz if you ask me.
