This makes me mad, like, serious, red-faced, ranting mad. Do you realize just how lazy this is? This is a franchise that fucking prides itself on how unoriginal and campy it is. They could have taken the plot from the film, gave it a new name and NO ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE WISER. At most, people would've thought, "Huh, this seems familiar." and OF COURSE IT DOES! Because I Know What You Did Last Summer is one of the most generic teen slasher films of all time. That's what's so fun about it. It doesn't even try. You can just sit back, relax, and turn that shit on and know that you aren't going to see anything good or original...just some good, ole fashioned jump scares and boogeymen.

This is just cheap and it pisses me off...sooooooo much.

See it? I'm living it, brother.




 
Yes, great film. Not sure if I liked it more than Tinker, Tailor though.

I fucking loved it. But, yeah, if we're comparing to Tinker Tailor, not sure about that....

Wait, what? They're doing what? That's just incredibly silly.

Speaking of movies from 1997, I just finished watching Grosse Pointe Blank, because it's on Netflix and occupies the #4 spot of my top 5 favorite movies.

So I've been meaning to watch 3 Women for a while now, and tonight could be the night (Song For Someone reference, motherfuckers!). But I'm feeling a little anxious, since Persona is a favorite and I'm afraid I might not be able to watch 3 Women without drawing unnecessary comparisons, and end up labeling it as a poor man's Persona.

Reverse Shot is doing a "symposium" of Scorsese's entire filmography:

Symposiums - Reverse Shot


Hopefully Lance will read these and see the error of his ways, stop praying to false deities like De Palma.

Lance is letting you know you're a moron with the "It's...". An "It's" without the ellipses means you have a valid fear but it's unfounded.

Happy to help out here.

Ah, well ... thanks, Lance. That was very... kind of you.

Having seen Scarface, The Untouchables and Carrie...well...assuming those are among his best films, I'm not sure what the big deal is about the guy. All decent films, sure, but his style just doesn't move me at all. And I haven't even watched any of his films that get heavily criticized.

I will give Carlito's Way a fair shot though, that one sounds promising.

He has more standout films than that. But he has a history of lifting quite shamelessly from directors, particularly Hitchcock on multiple occasions, or Eisenstein in the Untouchables' famous "baby carriage" scene.

A good shotmaker but hardly an important artist.

Sisters is well worth a watch, and The Fury and Obsession for cheap thrills.
