Maybe she'll pull you up on stage like Courtney Cox in Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark video.

The compositions aren't up to the epic standards of the Lucas-directed installments, and doesn't have the claustrophobic intimacy of Kershner's Empire, either.

I don't get the "have to watch Jedi after Empire" or the "Jedi is the most easily-watchable" thing. Watching Jedi after Empire is like eating a shit sundae for dessert after a great meal at a French restaurant. And as for rewatchable, I still think it's the first one...or Clones (which to me is the most flat-out entertaining of the saga, despite the clunky Naboo scenes).

Let it also be noted that I had nothing to do with hijacking this thread yet AGAIN with Star Wars material.
I'm gonna sit down one day and write a treatment/outline for what Jedi should've been and it will be awesome.

Did anyone happen to catch Martin Scorsese's documentary on Val Lewton last night, on Turner Classic Movies? I wish I had heard about this earlier or I would have warned everyone in advance.

Lewton was responsible for a horror division of RKO Pictures after Orson Welles had nearly financially ruined the studio with Kane and Ambersons. These films were given preposterous, pulpy titles and miniscule budgets (compared to the Universal Monsters classics), yet were revolutionary in the way they showed less and suggested more. Very atmospheric, at times almost dream-like photography. Lewton fostered the careers of directors Jacques Tourneur, Robert Wise, and Mark Robson with these films.

Anyway, I don't know if TCM is even airing the doc, or the films (they had a complete festival last night as well) again this month, but it's something to keep an eye out for, or perhaps download. The thing is called Val Lewton: The Man in the Shadows.

There was actually a boxed set released about a year and a half ago that had all the films, many with commentary, and a different documentary on Lewton. It is very much worth the purchase, or at least a rental, and all run less than 90 minutes.

Here is the complete list:

Cat People (Tourneur)
I Walked With A Zombie (Tourneur)
The Leopard Man (Tourneur)
The Seventh Victim (Robson)
Curse of the Cat People (Wise)
Ghost Ship (Robson)
Isle of the Dead (Robson)
The Body Snatcher (Wise)
Bedlam (Robson)

I'd also like to add that the last three films star, and breathed new life into the career of none other than Boris Karloff.

So, I decided to rewatch The Terminator tonight. I haven't seen it in 10-12 years, but I had a amazing realization within the first 5 minutes of watching.

Bill Paxton is the most SIGNIFICANT actor of our time. Simply put, having Paxton in your movie will not make it a blockbuster, but you cannot have a blockbuster without Paxton in your movie.

Can you imagine if Bill Paxton, Clint Howard, and Danny Trejo were all in the same movie?

It would probably disrupt the space/time continuum.

I wonder if everyone of Danny Trejo characters is called "Dangerous Mexican" on IMDB. Talk about being typecast.

Do you think that James Cameron was already planning The Titanic when he emasculated the Terminator?

Yeah, I'll never understand the love for Terminator 2, which is a bit of a bitch-out, if you ask me.

They should have retitled that film 'The Kneecapper' for all the Happy Meal-friendly violence Arnie dished out.

Holy Shit, Batman! Eddie Furlong grew up to be one of my high school gym teachers.



I wish I could say that was a compliment, but my gym teacher was not a nice woman.
