Interference Random Movie Talk
 
Since this is what almost every thread eventually turns into anyway, here's an excuse not to worry about going off topic, because there is no topic. Just keep the bullshit flowing, with whatever's on your mind, whatever we just want to talk about.

I'll get discussion going:

Napoleon Dynamite in on Comedy Central right now. I still can't believe how mediocre this is given its adoring fanbase. Discuss.

It's Bottle Rocket for dummies.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:37 PM

Wow. I was just thinking that exact same thing.

Wes Anderson FTW.

It is sad that ND gave Jon Heder - who so far appears to be devoid of any discernable acting talent - a career.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:39 PM

Perfect for him to appear in Will Farrel movies then, no?

It's pure Wes Anderson, except the dialogue is some of the dumbest shit ever. The Kip-LaFawnda storyline and anything involving Uncle Rico are pretty funny though.

Blades of Glory was a piece of shit anyway, save for Jenna Fischer, Will Arnett, and Amy Poehler and I'm a huge Ferrell fan.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:40 PM

It also lacks the keen eye for colour and composition, but you're right.

There's a big difference between Heder and Ferrell. Ferrell is hilarious, and is currently the last great screwball comedic actor to come out of SNL. Heder is not.

It's true, but Ferrel has failed to do anything original in his last 3 or 4 films.

He hit a dry spell in 2005, but Elf, Old School, Anchorman, and Stranger Than Fiction are all pretty solid for me.

Check out Melinda and Melinda, he's good in that and it's a Woody Allen flick.

namkcuR 08-19-2007 12:50 PM

I think Ferrell works better when he's part of an ensemble of screwball actors than when he's the star screwball actor, Anchorman being the exception.

Look at Old School. And his cameo in Wedding Crashers was classic.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:50 PM

Haven't seen Melinda and Medlina, but all those other films were all decent, but almost all the same exact Ferrel character in each one.

But anyway, how do you guys feel about Shoot 'Em Up? Anything with Clive Owen is badass, but Giamatti as the bad guy really bugs me for some reason.

namkcuR 08-19-2007 12:52 PM

Anyway, let's put it into perspective: Heder is fucking Brando compared to Jimmy Fallon. Fallon is one of my top 10 worst actors in the history of cinemas.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:52 PM

You've got me there.

namkcuR 08-19-2007 12:54 PM

I haven't seen Shoot'Em'Up.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:54 PM

It's not out yet.

Just watch a trailer.

I think Ferrell's characters in all 4 of the movies I mentioned are different, but that's just me.

Shoot 'Em Up is going to own all types of ass, I hear Beav has a cameo as a the guy who bangs Monica Belluci.

And Jimmy Fallon's terrible, he's going to take over Late Night when Conan leaves for The Tonight Show. :|

namkcuR 08-19-2007 12:57 PM

Ok.

That reminds me....I saw Bourne Ultimatum yesterday(great, great film, far better than Supremacy), and one of the previews was for 'We Own The Night'. That piqued my interest. Mostly because of Joaquin Phoenix. I need to make a thread about him. Living in the shadow of his dead brother, he will go down as one of the most criminally underrated actors of his generation.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 12:59 PM

I'm really looking forward to We Own The Night.

Marky Mark, Joaquin Phoenix and the director of Walk The Line. The trailer was fantastic.

Lancemc 08-19-2007 01:03 PM

Also, I'm only seeing Balls of Fury because of the guy from Reno 911. I fucking love him.
