The Warriors had to high-tail-it back to Coney (without weapons and with a few obstacles that lie in their way ... for one ... every gang was out to get them ... they had absolutely no place to hide) The classic part was at the end of the movie ... the 'big showdown' between the gang member Luther, who was actually the one responsible for shooting Cyrus, and The Warriors fight against him and his gang.



"Warriors ... come out to play"

"Warriors ... come out to play"

"WARRIORS ... COME OUT TO PLAY"



This movie was gang fighting at it's BEST !!

For those of you who have seen this movie ... you might remember the actor who played Luther (David Patrick Kelly) ... he was also in the movie 48 Hrs (with the same character name ... Luther).
I'm a HUGE Warriors fan but I find it funny that you're cool with this movie, but find Fast Times at Ridgemont High an inaccurate portrayal of teen life and a bad film for kids to watch. Would you say that the Warriors portrays how all of NY was in the 70's and that it's a nice little film for children to watch?

The movie still kicks all sorts of ass, though.

Escape from New York is an accurate portrayal of New York in the year 1997, you know.

Anyway, this film placed character well and truly above anything else, with the plot not kicking in for a good half hour and even then it almost feels incidental to the main leads.

The style and tone of the film is similar to Memento and a more downbeat Out of Sight and if you liked them then this is definitely worth a look, as is anything else featuring Mr Levitt (Killshot certainly looks promising).
Ironically:

Brick.

Borrowed it from a friend last week, and, really liked it, especially Levitt's performance. Not sure if I've ever seen film noir done with High School as the backdrop. I'd give it a solid 7.5.

3:10 to Yuma with Russel Crow and Christian Bale.

Excellent film and the acting is top notch.

It kind of drags a bit in the middle but towards the end it really picks up and gets intense.

Buffalo 66

I revisited this film and then kicked myself for not having bought it right when I saw it. It's one of those films that is just perfect in every way, it's funny, touching, smart, sometimes cruel, but always stellar. Every sentence, song, scene, camera angle is gold..solid gold. Vincent Gallo is a motherfuckin genius, at least in b66.

10/10

The Prestige
7/10

Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale did fine jobs with their roles, but I think a movie about magic should be more fun. This was dark, dreary and a bit on the tedious side.



The Science of Sleep
8/10

This was a fun, odd and quirky movie. Really nice performances by Gael Garcia Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg. I didn't find it to be too substantial of a film, but it kept me entertained. But boy, does that boy Stephane have issues! (Didn't realize this was directed by Michel Gondry of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind until after viewing -- that explains some of the quirkiness!)

There were preview screenings this weekend, but wide release is Sept. 7th.

I really want to see this and Jesse James, they might be rentals for me though.

unfortunately most movies end up being rentals since it's hard to convince my friends to watch the films i like. they're a bit much into chick flicks and and things that are normally crap.

but at the same time, as sad as it sounds, i much enjoy watching films by myself on dvd. it wasn't always the case but i've come to enjoy my own company, really. i don't have to worry if anyone is getting bored or if anyone is gonna complain after the movie and i can rewind etc..

the only person i usually go to the movies to watch anything good is my boyfriend and it's quite nice because i have someone to be enthusiatic about a film with and we can discuss it for the rest of the evening. unfortunately, he'e away at school half of the year.

Glad you enjoyed it. To be honest I'm not sure what my critical rating of it would be but it was my absolute favourite film of last year, one I'd been itching to see that didn't disappoint me at all. Levitt really is a terrific actor, he holds both Brick and The Lookout together so well and his turn in Mysterious Skin is powerful too.

Also, elevation2u, Buffalo '66 is a great little film. Credit must go to Christina Ricci as well, she more than holds her own while Gallo dominates the film.

No doubt about Ricci, but I meant Gallo was genius for writing/directing/acting in the movie.

Saw "Flushed Away" and really enjoyed it. It's cute and clever and made me actually feel a fondness toward slugs.

Lean On Me - 6/10

True story about the hell of Eastern High in Paterson NJ in the 80s. Absolutely dripping in 80's cheese, complete with synthy montages and "Welcome to the Jungle". It definitely had its moments, but it felt more like a made-for-school film about tolerance. And more than that, it was merely a vessel for Morgan Freeman to give as many as 8 roaring speeches. Christ almighty, a little originality goes a long way.

High Fidelity - 8/10

This movie still kicks ass sorts of ass. That's all

Sydney [aka Hard Eight] - 8.5/10

PTA's debut feature-length, Sydney is a slow and prodding character study, with little plot, and brilliant everything else...

Philip Baker Hall absolutely dominated this film with his turn as the title character, and the rest of the cast supports like they should. The always-amazing Philip Seymour Hoffman steals his one scene though, unsurprisingly. And I'm not ashamed to say a get a little teared up during the pivotal scene as well.

I love watching movies alone because too many people talk through the whole goddamn thing and ask me what they missed. Fuck that.
