What do tigers dream of, when they take a little tiger snooze? Do they dream of mauling zebras, or Halle Berry in her catwoman suit? Don't you worry your pretty striped head we're gonna get you back to Tyson and your cozy tiger bed. And then we're gonna find our bestfriend Doug and then we're gonna give him a bestfriend hug.

Doug, Doug, Oh, Doug Dougie Dougie Doug Doug

But if he's been murdered by crystal meth tweekers, well then we're shit out of luck.

No, it's actually a very common practice in satire to blow the thing you want to satirize out of proportion and through this point out its absurdity. I've already hinted at why the film itself is clearly aware of its satirical element, and I don't have to read too much into it to do that. There is a lot of dialogue that supports this interpretation, they are literally telling the viewer how to watch the movie. When there is a close-up on Baby Doll's heels in that first fight with the samurais, the audience always laughs (I've seen the film twice so far). The film tells you it is a satire and it works like a satire, you just have to connect the dots to see the whole picture.

You guys aren't even giving any arguments as to why Sucker Punch doesn't work like a satire, it seems to me you refuse to accept the most basic premise - that Hollywood movies can be more than what they're advertised as.

Man, just read my posts: You're not even arguing about the same thing- We're not talking about what movies are advertised as, we're talking about how they TURN OUT. You're talking about how they're INTENDED to be... what they're intended to be is completely irrelivant, as a number of people have pointed out, so stop talking about that. You're the one talking about how the films are advertised, jacking off to the intellectual premises of films which never even made it into the finished product.

Once again in case you don't get it (again)- we're not talking about what the ads say, or what the director wanted to make the film about- That's you. We're talking about the end result, about the literal content of the film.

Hahaha, what?!

I'm giving you direct examples of scenes from the movie, from the actual product, that support my interpretation which was then confirmed by the director as a possible reading.

You're the one making utterly unsubstantiated claims and you're disagreeing with me on a movie you probably haven't even watched.

I find it deeply ironic that you're imploring him to "just read your posts" when it's very obvious you're not reading his.

Try Deep Water! Like I said not as exciting but it has a eerie vibe to it.

I watched The Twilight Samurai the other night. I may need some more time to digest, but from where I stand now I rank it among my favorite movies. The movie takes place during a time when the Samurai were becoming less important in Japanese culture, seeming to slowly fade out of favor in the increasingly modern world. It was the same time period Kurosawa set The Seven Samurai in. The acting was fantastic, and the story-telling was even stronger. An attentive viewer should become aware of a good deal of symbolism and foreshadowing. All of it was so incredibly subtle though and it's that exact subtly that's totally lacking in most movies today.

Every character in the movie served a real purpose. Even the senile grandmother who spoke in "who are you"s and "I remember you"s added so much depth.

Yowza. Rated it 10/10 on imdb


Bit of a thunderstorm here tonight, though the thunder has abated. Calls for a scary movie! I'm putting on Trick r Treat for the first time - hope it's not too bad


//Trick r Treat was actually gooooooood. I wish they made more horror movies like that.

Do you mean an anthology-style horror film? If so, check out Twilight Zone: The Movie, Tales From The Darkside: The Movie, Creepshow I & II, Body Bags, and Tales From The Hood.

I will
I've seen Twilight Zone and Tales From The Hood.
I didn't really mean anthology-style films, thought I liked that aspect of it as well.
What I liked about it was how it did so well with the spirit of the holiday and wasn't just some random slasher/etc. A Halloween horror flick that doesn't involve a dude in a mask with a knife or girls locked in their room with a ouija board. Now we're talking!

*facepalm*


Brandon Lee's been in the ground for 15 minutes and they're already going to remake, of all things, "The Crow"!? Starring Bradley Cooper!? What the hell is going on in Hollywood... seriously.




quote:


Bradley Cooper is in early negotiations to star in Relativity’s remake of The Crow, being directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

In the adaptation of the gritty black-and-white indie comic by artist James O'Barr, Cooper will play a rock musician who is murdered while trying to save his fiancée from thugs. He is resurrected by supernatural forces and seeks revenge. The role was originally played by Brandon Lee, who was killed by a freak accident during production in 1993.

EDIT: Twilight is bad enough with the emo crowd... if they remake The Crow I can't imagine what the movie theater audiences will look like.
