What is your interest in films prior to your birth?

Recommended Posts

Joey hates Wes Anderson.

I'm not a fan of Wes Anderson either. His style doesn't resonate with me, for lack of a better word.

I remember growing up watching the older AMC (the one that showed classic movies before it evolved into what it is now) and watching classics like Thief of Bagdad, The Jungle Book and The Adventures of Robin Hood. There's a certain style, unabashed imagination and passion invested into films like that... you don't see that kind of movie nowadays.

I'm also interested in early Japanese cinema. House is one of the strangest yet imaginative and funniest films I've seen, while something as controversial like In the Realm of the Senses speaks volumes about sexual obsession. Rashomon is certainly a watershed for Japanese cinema, and still holds up today.

I was born in '87, by the way.

Terminator 2 was very mediocre also. I guess he had one decent movie in him.

Did you ever see that Christian Slater movie were he played Churchill as a US soldier killed the Kraut single-handedly?

Or the 50's version of Casino Royale were James Bond was Jimmy Bond, an American spy?

Bloody yanks!

It's true, Karol. Europeans when emulating English often do so with an American twang to their accent, as if taught the language by an American teacher.

which American twang? there are only hundreds.

If you want an example of that, just check out the Sewdish versions of Smashey and Nicey, on Radio G-Fab Fuh Muh. Funny as...
