That would be Warren Beatty's Reds, from 1981 (newly available on DVD in a fantasic 2-disc edition!). Beatty, Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Paul Sorvino, etc. Fucking epic.

Rounding out the 5 are The English Patient and Once Upon a Time in America.

I'm a pretty big Gilliam Fan, though Fear and Loathing is, to me, not one of his better films. I like the idea of the film, and the execution of the adaptation is about as good as one could expect, but it's a mess. As I guess it should be. But it's a difficult film to watch.

Ha.

But how fucking old is that movie now?

Bastard, I did not see The Weatherman, but heard it sucked. Never saw National Treasure.

The Weather Man was pretty bad, but I'm a Cage fan so I sat through it. Same goes for National Treasure, though I absolutely refuge to see its sequel...and Ghost Rider...and Next, etx.


Lord of War was a good movie.

I met Terry Gilliam at a screening of "Brazil" at LACMA a few years ago. I rarely, if ever, approach celebrities, but he actually sat behind me before the film started, so I turned around and spoke to him for a few before the film started. Odd to have a director of a film sitting behind you as you watch that film. I should have asked him if he thought he'd enjoy Nic Cage playing the title character in an adaptation of the comic "Ghost Rider".

That's cool.

I was considering a Brazil / Fisher King / Fear and Loathing threesome, but seems like too much Gilliam, even if they all turn out to be stellar films. 12 Monkeys is in my Top 100 though.

Nicholas Cage: Face/Off totally pwns, though strangely I thought Travolta did a better job impersonating Cage than the other way around. Loved him in Matchstick Men and Honeymoon in Vegas (extremely underrated. "Get your ticket and MOVE ON!" "What are you gonna do? You gonna put me in AIRPORT JAIL?")

Lance: No comment on Apocalypse aside from a simple Original > Redux remark? I'd love to hear your reasoning.

12 Monkeys is WAY high on my all-time list. You really need to see it again after watching Vertigo, which is playing in the old theatre Willis & Stowe go into, and the two films have much in common. You'll love it even more.

Time Bandits is also on the queue, but I might bunch that up with Meaning of Life and Life of Brian.

I get some perverse pleasure in making good Netflix threesomes, it kind of adds to the whole experience for me I guess.

That's really cool, I should probably do that. I love Brad Pitt's mentally retarded Tyler Durden character.

To be fair, I haven't seen the Redux since my Senior year of high school some time, so I really wouldn't like to get too deep into my preference without seeing it again.

And there really isn't much to be said about the film itself that hasn't been said a million times already. It's a masterpiece, and easily my favorite war film, unless you count Dr. Strangelove or a more tangential film like that.

Not everyone likes Time Bandits, but I love it. There is a scene with Robin Hood, played by John Cleese, that I fucking worship.

As Laz says, 12 Monkeys is great. Do watch it.

Well, I'm glad you don't experience them, too.

That's comedy.
