I thought Chris Cooper was really good in it.
I know it was innovative and all that, but I don't understand why the saga is held in such high regard. There's only like one great movie (Empire) and the rest range from fun to dire.
Shitty news that Harold Ramis has died.
You're a toilet.
Purely for the storyline.
Mann’s most cohesive film. No weak areas. The domestic drama works. He’s able to produce thrill and suspense to great effect without the heist sequences, gunfights, car chases and the like.
BEST LEAD PERFORMANCE:
Russell Crowe, The Insider
I just realized that I didn’t touch on Crowe’s performance in the review of The Insider. Russell Crowe was a surprise in his nuanced and controlled performance.. He captured the rollercoaster of emotions caused by all the internal turmoil that Wigand had to go through in the story.
BEST SUPPORTING PERFORMANCE:
Brian Cox, Manhunter
Simply stole every scene he was in.
McCauley & Hanna in the Diner, Heat
Quoting from my review: ” (Heat) can maintain tension even in its quiet moments, and has one of the most electric scenes you can ever have between two people talking in a diner.” — This is that scene.
BEST STYLIZED ACTION SEQUENCE:
The Second Heist, Thief
It was either this or the downtown shootout from Heat. This heist scene just impressed me more because of how meticulously detailed and believably authentic it was.
Was it better thanGasmask Knifeman?
But things got off to a bad start just 10 minutes into the press conference, when 27-year-old LaBeouf was asked his first question, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The question was about LaBeouf’s decision to star in a movie with so many sex scenes.
He enigmatically replied: “When the seagulls follow the trawler, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.
"Thank you very much.”
To the surprise of fellow panellists Christian Slater, Stacy Martin, Stellan Skarsgard, Uma Thurman and producer Louise Vesth, he then stormed out.
~600 votes on imdb is nothing. I'll wait two weeks to see where it actually goes.
I've seen mention of a semi-rumour going around that this might be coming out now because the Weinsteins pushed for it to happen to dirty Woody's Oscar chances. Just a rumour, and a very extreme one.
Although, not beyond the realms of possibility.
Just hook them both up to lie detector's and be done with it.
Hence statute of limitations law. My point is that why assume that she's lying or something when you should make no assumptions and admit that there's no way to definitively find out what really happened? Which is sort of what you're doing, except you're somehow attacking the character of people "blindly believing accusations" when really it's about sympathizing with someone who was actually damaged by this.
Btw, SO glad The Hunt made it a little more okay for people to blindly dispel rape accusations.
We've all heard of the Hunt.
Every time I stumble upon this topic on the internet, it seems the people who are most outraged are also the most ignorant of the facts. Following are the top ten misconceptions, followed by my response in italics:
#1: Soon-Yi was Woody’s daughter. False.
#2: Soon-Yi was Woody’s step-daughter. False.
#3: Soon-Yi was Woody and Mia’s adopted daughter. False. Soon-Yi was the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and André Previn. Her full name was Soon-Yi Farrow Previn.
#4: Woody and Mia were married. False.
#5: Woody and Mia lived together. False. Woody lived in his apartment on Fifth Ave. Mia and her kids lived on Central Park West. In fact, Woody never once stayed over night at Mia’s apartment in 12 years.
#6: Woody and Mia had a common-law marriage. False. New York State does not recognize common law marriage. Even in states that do, a couple has to cohabitate for a certain number of years.
#7: Soon-Yi viewed Woody as a father figure. False. Soon-Yi saw Woody as her mother’s boyfriend. Her father figure was her adoptive father, André Previn.
#8: Soon-Yi was underage when she and Woody started having relations. False. She was either 19 or 21. (Her year of birth in Korea was undocumented, but believed to be either 1970 or ’72.)
#9: Soon-Yi was borderline ******ed. Ha! She’s smart as a whip, has a degree from Columbia University and speaks more languages than you.
#10: Woody was grooming Soon-Yi from an early age to be his child bride. Oh, come on! According to court documents and Mia’s own memoir, until 1990 (when Soon-Yi was 18 or 20), Woody “had little to do with any of the Previn children, (but) had the least to do with Soon-Yi” so Mia encouraged him to spend more time with her. Woody started taking her to basketball games, and the rest is tabloid history. So he hardly “had his eye on her” from the time she was a child.
Let me add this: If anyone is creeped out by the notion of a 55-year old man becoming involved with his girlfriend’s 19-year old adopted daughter, I understand. That makes perfect sense. But why not get the facts straight? If the actual facts are so repugnant to you, then why embellish them?
I don't get watching films with a recently passed away actor, it'd just be too sad.
