Audition
? I see a number of movies with that title on IMDb.

i was thinking of the 1999 takashi miike film. it's become something of a cult favourite over the years. i haven't watched it in a good length time, but i remember it having one of the biggest shifts in tone i've ever seen in a movie. it started out as a rather breezy, lighthearted comedy about a lonely guy, then went dark. really dark. i really loved it a lot, and ought to revisit it to see how well it holds up to my memory...


Thanks!

Logan (2016)

Easily the best film of the X-Men franchise, and one of the better superhero films of any era.

unleashed - 3/5 a single woman's cat & dog are turned into perfect men during a 'cosmic' event and compete to date her, causing her to re-evaluate her outlook on love after being betrayed by her last boyfriend.

this is definitely the best 'woman's pets become people and they date' movie i've ever seen.

I saw yesterday Death Note original Netflix film, what a mess, is an awful film. Takes away everything that was great about the anime. The only great thing about it was Ryuk, it was identical to the Ryuk in the anime. 1.5/5

It's time for Rate The Last Movie You Watched - Hauling Ass From A Hurricane edition!

I'm not going to rehash everything that's happened re: Hurricane Harvey so far. Suffice to say that it's been a catastrophe for Houston, TX and lots of other Texas towns. And it's not over yet.

Despite MUCH objection, I was able to convince the womenfolk that we were Hauling Ass. And Haul Ass we did. We left Houston Friday afternoon, took a lot of backroads, and wheeled into Dallas around 8:30 PM. At that point, I was 1 - 0 in Arguments Of Coherence. But it wasn't the last Argument Of Coherence to be had. Sad to say that by lunch time my Argument Of Coherence record was 1 - 1. I was unable to get the ladies to continue on to our mountain house/office complex in northern New Mexico. Instead, they wanted to go to Hot Springs, Arkansas. Bad move, but sometimes you have to pick your battles.

JUMP TO THE FUTURE: Hurricane Harvey was far worse than the ladies thought it would be, but it was EXACTLY what I feared it would be. So going to Hot Springs was a mistake, and the ladies agreed this morning that NOW we had to get to New Mexico. Upshot of it all is that basically we drove from Dallas to Hot Springs to eat dinner. We never got to go to any of the hot springs.

BACK TO THE PRESENT: For the drive from Dallas to Hot Springs, I decided to fire up my computer and watch another Coen Brothers movie. But this time I wanted to see "Miller's Crossing". Here's why!

There's this guy named Drew Magary. He writes mainly for a funny sports website named Deadspin. If you read any of his stuff, I think you'll agree that (1) he's funny; and (2) it's mainly because he writes just like me! Here, see for yourself: http://deadspin.com/tag/drew-magary

Since I like myself just fine, I also like Drew Magary and his writing. Since I'm older than Drew Magary, I'm going to say that he writes like me, and not the other way around. Since he's a successful writer and I'm not, I expect success is just around the corner for me!

Magary has a feature during the NFL season called "NFL Funbag!" or something like that. He streams-of-consciousnesses about games; throws in jokes; and towards the end of each Funbag he throws in a Gratuitous Quote From "Miller's Crossing". Every quote was awesome! I told myself, "Self, sooner or later you have to watch this movie!"

Holy Moley, is this a great movie! I watched it literally on the road, laptop literally in my lap. I can only imagine what an orgasm of coolness this thing would have been on a big screen.

SPOILER ALERT - Floyd Mayweather scored a TKO in the 10th round and beat Conor McGregor. Honestly, there were no winners in that fight as neither guy was wortth rooting for.

ANOTHER SPOILER ALERT - Gabrielle Byrne was really cool and I'm going to tell you everything he did - starting with my new favorite question of all time: "What's the rumpus?"

What's the rumpus? I'll tell you what the rumpus is! The rumpus is that Byrne works for Leo, the Big Crime Boss. A guy named Caspar is bummed out that another dude named Bernie is betting on Caspar's fixed matches with Caspar's own inside information. To Caspar this is an egregious breach of ethics so naturally, being an ethical man, Caspar wants permission to kill Bernie. But Leo says no. This enrages Caspar, who declares a gangland war on Leo.

Bryne is doing the following things: (1) working for Leo; (2) losing a lot of money on every bet he makes; (3) boinking Leo's girlfriend, who is also Bernie's sister; and (4) getting the hell beat out of him about every 15 minutes. Miraculously, none of this affects his ability to walk, talk or shoot a gun.

Byrne confesses to Leo that he's been boinking Leo's girlfriend. This makes Leo only mad enough to have Byrne beat up (get in line! Everyone beats up Byrne in this movie), but he does not kill Byrne. So naturally, Byrne goes to work for Caspar.

At this point you are probably asking, what's the rumpus? I'll tell you what the rumpus is!

Bernie's partner is Mink, played by Steve Buscemi. Buscemi has now played Mink and Mr. Pink! What other "-ink" characters might he play in the future? The mind boggles! "FAMILY GUY" reference - remember the time that Peter used Steve Buscemi's picture on his drivers license and Lois said, "Oh my God, you look like a human cigarette"? Classic! Now, back to the rumpus.

Byrne tell Buscemi that Caspar knows he and Bernie are stealing information on boxing match fixes and betting outrageously. This concerns Steve Buscemi, and it also ultimately ends in Buscemi getting his head blown off - by his friend Bernie!

See, Bernie is the REAL bad guy here. After Byrne switches teams and joins Caspar, as a teste of loyalty he is tasked with walking Bernie out to Miller's Crossing in the woods and blbowing his brains out. Byrne walks Bernie out there but is not in a brains-blowing-out mood, and tells Bernie that now the rumpus is that he has to amscray. Bernie is very thankful - for about five seconds, and then he realizes he has something on Byrne because if Caspar ever learns that Bernie is still alive. Caspar will kill Byrne. But Bryne, like Homey D. Clown, don't play that.

All kinds of rumpus follows, and pretty much everyone except Byrne and Leo end up dead. Since all Leo's competition is now pushing up daisies, Leo is now the Big Crime Boss again. He sees Byrne at Bernie's funeral, and incredibly thinks this whole rumpus was nothing more than a play by Byrne to ultimately get Caspar out of Leo's life. That's some rumpus!

If you haven't seen "Miller's Crossing", you should! It is one HECK of a rumpus! I give it 5 rumpuses out of 5 rumpuses.

Thanks!

I had told an old girlfriend that she reminded me of the girl in a movie called AUDITION....

Of course... I wound up lending it to her (along with Cinema Paradiso)....and of course..never got it back....

that's easily in the top of Takashii Miike's films... some of his just got too bizarre for me. I haven't seen any of his in a while. Always a fan of this and THE HAPPINESS OF THE KATAKURIS.... that shit is HILL A REE OUS

A Dog's Purpose 2.5/5 I was disappointed, even after all the foolish that happened about this movie. I thought this would truly be from the dog's perspective, some of it was but it pretty much was about a bunch of depressed people and random throw-ins of the dog's perspective for a punchline. A dog's purpose, to help depressed people not feel so lonely in life.

good time 3.75/5 hopelessly incompetent criminal futilely & sometimes hilariously tries to free his mentally handicapped brother from jail after a botched bank robbery. has a raw, almost punkish, propulsive energy that i really enjoyed a great deal, though it perhaps loses a touch of that vitality towards the end.

Are you talking about a movie? I'm talking about a movie. My pic didn't show. Hopefully this one will.

Passanger - Waaaaaay better than I had been led to believe. I'll admit I'm a sci-fi nerd who is pre-disposed to liking/wanting to like sci-fi movies. Also, my rating is as much about the entertainment factor as it is about strictly being a "good movie". I still hate the pool scene - the physics make zero sense. Same with the tethered jumps off the outside of a MASSIVE hybernation barge moving through space at HIGH SPEED into a postcard pretty spacescape. But generally speaking, I enjoyed this one. At least a three, probably something in between a 3.0 and a 3.5 out of 5. I would have gone even higher if not for the super lame ending with the grown forest and birds flying around (barf).


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - These movies defy all logic. I don't even care why I like them so much. But damn if both the GOTG movies haven't left me completely satisfied and near misty eyed by the end. Also, this movie may have the best end credits sequence I've ever seen. 4.8/5


I know I'm late on both of these, but I just got around to them. Complete coincedence that they're both Chris Pratt movies, too. I'm always watching movies - I need to remember to come here and write something when I see a good one that everybody on planet Earth doesn't already know about. lol

Is there a TV thread? I'm binge watching Narcos right now, which has had some great moments, and some slow ones. Almost done with season one, though, and it's been worth the time thus far. Figured I'd jump in now since season three is premiering in a few days.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)

Still say the ending takes too long. I can never sit through it without taking a break at the two hour mark. Action scenes are exciting, Xenophobia is uncomfortable. Refreshing comedy that isn't 90% sex jokes. 8.3/10

kumiko, the treasure hunter - 3.5/5 a sad, lonely, young japanese woman finds a vhs copy of fargo, comes to believe it's an authentic documentation of a crime & travels to minnesota to find the red windshield scraper & briefcase full of treasure. you could say this has the feel of coen brothers fan fiction, but it's really good fan fiction. not as great as its inspiration, but how many films are as great as fargo?

We just watched "Snatched". I drank a lot of wine. I will sum "Snatched" up thusly:

There is not enough wine in the world to make Amy Schumer funny.

That was one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen. Normally, the worse the movie, the longer my review. But for this turkey?

I'm bailing out right here and right now.

Don't ever watch this movie, unless you need some proof to convince yourself that you, too, could be a Hollywood screenwriter.

Zero exposed boobs out of oh-my-God-I-saw-one-of-Amy-Schumer's-boobs-and-now-I'm-blind exposed boobs.


NEXT DAY EDIT!

I've slept on it, and my conclusion is that this review did not make me laugh. That means it's just like "Snatched" and dang it! I'm better than "Snatched"! So, I'll now tear down this monstrosity of a movie with as much humor as possible.

Let's start with the one and only funny joke in the entire movie. It has to do with whale sperm. Upon arrival at the Ecuadorian hotel (and seriously - no offense to the country of Ecuador, but what Millenial with little to no money chooses Ecuador for their only vacation?), each guest is given a tropical drink and greeted with a person saying "Welcome" with a very Spanish accent. It comes out "Wail comb". Goldie Hawn is given her drink, takes a sip and spits it out when the host says "Wail comb!" Her response is, "Whale what?!?" AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That's it for the humor in this movie.

Back to the beginning. Schumer plays a completely unlikeable and completely unfunny loser who works at a clothing store. In other words, she plays herself. Naturally, she gets fired but what does she care? She's going on an Ecuadorian vacation with her butt-ugly boyfriend!

But, problem! Her butt-ugly boyfriend plays in a "rock" band (I'm sure they sucked, even though none of their music was ever played) that is "blowing up" and now gets to go "on tour". Schumer is mad! Her ticket to Ecuador is non-refundable! I guess his is too, but that's one of those little things call "facts" which the screenwriter was unable to address. The butt-ugly boyfriend explains to Schumer that he's dumping her because on this "tour" there is going to be a lot of that thing that Prince spelled out in "New Position". Schumer replies that she has one of those too, but the butt-ugly now-ex-boyfriend has uncomplimentary things to say about her lady parts. AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Schumer tries to get some of her friends to go with her but in a bit brazenly stolen from that other crappy movie, "The Circle", her friends reply on-screen with various responses such as "Can I bring my kids?" and "WTF? You owe me $300!" AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

So Schumer does the only sensible thing - she goes home to mother. In this case, to Goldie Hawn. Goldie is basically a shut-in with a son who is also a shut-in. Goldie's husband left her some years ago and all she's done since then is get cats. She also creates Match.com profiles but in the movie's only sensible act, she deletes them. Good move! I firmly believe it's about impossible to find love by swiping right. Or is it swiping left? How would I know? I met my wife the old-fashioned way - at a funeral.

Schumer and her brother hate each other. But let's be honest - you would hate both of them, too. No one in this movie is likeable. The brother is a nerd shut-in who speaks Klingon and refers to his mother as "ma-MA". That's supposed to be funny. It's not. No AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! for this.

Despite her status as a shut-in, it turns out that Goldie Hawn was actually quite a party girl when she was young. Schumer discovers a scrapbook with all kinds of pictures of young Goldie, partying it up with David Bowie and Thin Lizzy. No doubt these are actual photos from the youth of the real Goldie Hawn. And I bet these are the TAME pictures, too! Which reminds me - my Summer Of Kurt Russell has been an abject failure. Perhaps I can still salvage it though, if I squeeze in a Kurt Russell movie or two. I bet the womenfolk will let me too, because believe it or not "Snatched" was the best selection we had from the 1990-era Dish TV system we have.

So Schumer convinces Hawn to channel her inner self, and go to Ecuador. She does. I've spent way too much on the first part of this unfunny movie but then again, it doesn't get anny funnier so does it really matter what part I focus on? I think not.

Fast forward to Ecuador. A good-looking, smart and funny British guy inexplicably puts the moves on Amy Schumer. For some other inexplicable reason, he's recently gotten a tattoo of Groucho Marx on his forearm. This encourages Schumer to lift her dress and show him her tramp stamp. "Ouch!" he says. "That is really bad. Is it finished?" To which Schumer replies, "Well, it gets finished ON". AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I hate this movie.

It turns out the guy - James is his name - is part of a Colombian ring of kidnappers. Never mind the fact that James is an Englishman. Apparently, Colombian drug lords have a thing for Englishmen? I don't know. This is clearly a fact that was too complex for the screenwriter, who I am now going to dox.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Katie Dippold:


MV5BMGQ2YTFjNjYtMGM4Yi00N2Y5LWI5ZmUtYzBiMGQxNzFkZWY1XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNDI2NzEwOQ@@._V1_UY317_CR54,0,214,317_AL_.jpg


She doesn't look like an untalented, out of touch, confused woman, does she? I mean, this is a woman who was a writer for one of the best sitcoms of the last twenty years, "Parks and Recreation". She can't be THAT dumb, can she?

Well............................

She also wrote "The Heat", one of a long line of horrible movies that cast Melissa McCarthy as an unlikeable character. She also wrote the 2016 version of "Ghostbusters", which was unnecessary and apparently a dud (I never saw it, but I have not heard one good word about it from anyone). And her work on "Parks and Recreation" was mainly as a story editor/executive story editor. She only wrote 7 episodes but at least a couple of them were funny. And consider this fair warning: "The Heat 2" is coming your way.

James kidnaps Schumer and Goldie this way: First, he spends a night taking Schumer to a really cool locals party out in the woods. Then he takes her home and does not boink her; rather, he kisses her hand. He makes a date for the next morning to take Schumer and Goldie on an "adventure". The "adventure" consists of driving through a bad part of Ecuador where their car gets rammed by some dudes in a white van. This knocks out Schumer and Hawn, and there's no way James escaped from that crash without getting hurt. WTH? Why go to all that trouble? Why not just stop the car, tell Schumer and Hawn to get out, and tie them up? Why total a van AND a rental car, AND injure one of your co-conspirators? Completely stupid, and completely in line with the plot of this movie.

Oh, I forgot something. Hopefully I will forget EVERYTHING about this flick, but that's for later/many bottles of wine. What I forgot was that prior to meeting James, Schumer meets Wanda Sykes at the hotel pool. Not even Wanda Sykes can be funny in this movie. Her "platonic" parter is Joan Cusak. We all know how I feel about Cusaks, don't we? Well, I have some good news! In this movie, Joan Cusak plays a retired "special ops" person who has cut out her own tongue so that she can never be tortured to give up all the vital national secrets she knows. As Schumer points out, this doesn't stop a bad person from torturing Joan Cusak and getting her to write down all the vital national secrets she knows. But who cares? All that matters is that Joan Cusak cannot talk in this movie! AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Back to the kidnapping. Schumer and Hawn end up in a cell, where Hawn is reading a porn magazine and pretending it's an edition of People or something. AHHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Schumer and Goldie are put in the back of a 1973 Dodge Charger Brougham. It is a GREAT car. Without a doubt, it's the best part of the movie. Here's what it looks like:


57dbd6e3b7a71e7a939b9810eefdb5e3.jpg

This is exactly like the car in the movie. It might even be that car, for all I know. Isn't it awesome? You bet it is! It has everything - big engine, cool wheels, fat tires, boss window louvers, and a giant, wide trunk. You know what it doesn't have?

A wire in the trunk that you can pull on and pop the trunk open from inside. But Goldie says there IS such a wire - she read it in a magazine. I call bull corn! Having owned two 1970 Mopars, I can absolutely assure you there is no such wire in that car. I even Googled "Can you open a 1973 Charger trunk from the inside" and the answer is - Only with a bunch of time and tools. There is no such wire, or magazine article, or anything else that would allow Schumer and Goldie to pop that trunk. So you know what? I'm just going to post another picture of a 1973 Dodge Challenger Brougham. It's one of the cars that I one day want to own. About ten years ago I actually saw the one I would have wanted on the road, right by my home! I figured I'd see it again some and would be able to talk to the owner about selling it to me but I never saw that car again. Sad! Here's what it looked like (except it had a white interior):


6fd78dc1de039515453fb1a1e4cb8fb2.jpg

OK, I've spent enough bandwidth trying to make you happy with pictures of cool cars. Heavens knows that writing about this movie won't improve anyone's disposition! So let's just end this as best as we can.

Through many incredible and unfunny maneuvers, Schumer and Goldie are able to outwit the Colombian drug lords. The United States State Department official is of no help, despite the shut-in brother's ineffective threats. But everyone ends up in Colombia anyway - Schumer, the shut-in brother, the State Department Anti-Kidnapping Team O' Badasses, and Wanda Sykes/mute Joan Cusak. However, Goldie is still being held by the bad guy.

But Schumer, Sykes and mute Joan Cusak find her. Sykes and mute Joan Cusak get driven off while hiding on the top of a truck and unfortunately, we do get to see them again. In the meantime, Schumer uses her Ecuadorian dancing skills to free Goldie AND beat up the bad guy. Yes, that's not a misprint. It was Ecuadorian dancing skills that saved the day.

The movie ends with Schumer and Goldie on a vacation a year later in Kuala Lumpor. A nice guy tries to hit up Schumer but she rebuffs him, preferring instead to dance with her "m*****f***ing bada** mom". In a complete and final metaphor for how dumb this movie is, Schumer and Goldie use every "dancing like a white girl" move to Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself". Since they are dancing with each other, neither is actually dancing with their self. A perfectly dumb ending for a perfectly dumb movie.

I hope you enjoyed my excursion back into a movie that has absolutely only one redeeming quality, and that is a car you get to see for two minutes. The other 95 minutes of this movie are a complete waste of time.

We just watched "Snatched". I drank a lot of wine. I will sum "Snatched" up thusly:

There is not enough wine in the world to make Amy Schumer funny.

That was one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen. Normally, the worse the movie, the longer my review. But for this turkey?

I'm bailing out right here and right now.

Don't ever watch this movie, unless you need some proof to convince yourself that you, too, could be a Hollywood screenwriter.

Zero exposed boobs out of oh-my-God-I-saw-one-of-Amy-Schumer's-boobs-and-now-I'm-blind exposed boobs.

Fuck that shit, you don't need it now. Don't watch 30 Days of Night either; worst zombie movie ever. In a bad way. Instead, watch Shaun of the Dead, if you haven't seen it. 10 stars out of 10 for a great zombie movie.

I've been considering starting a "Rate the Last TV Series You Watched" thread. Maybe now is the time.

i've been a little worried over your absence here. is all your time going to tv these days?


TV and gigs have taken up most of my free time this year, yes. I was also without a big screen TV for a few months and refused to watch any movies at home on my small replacement set until I found the HD model I wanted. I'm going to be in big trouble when Oscar season arrives.

Ingrid Goes West (2017) - An unhinged social media stalker moves to LA and insinuates herself into the life of an Instagram star.

I should have liked this more as it's a great showcase for Aubrey Plaza and it's a little twisted. I'm also thankful the final scene--or final shot to be more specific--was not the cliché I feared. I did think O'Shea Jackson Jr.'s character was a chump though. I would have steered clear of Ingrid at the first sign of trouble. 3/5

A Dog's Purpose 2.5/5 I was disappointed, even after all the foolish that happened about this movie. I thought this would truly be from the dog's perspective, some of it was but it pretty much was about a bunch of depressed people and random throw-ins of the dog's perspective for a punchline. A dog's purpose, to help depressed people not feel so lonely in life.

yes... same with cats.

with the exception that dogs are sycophantic ass kissing, dirty, stupid bastards that only function well when being TOLD what to do.

(this doesn't apply to Wild/Feral dogs/wolves)

You are the only ass kissing, dirty stupid bastard here.

i caught this myself earlier this week. i think i might have liked it a bit more than you, but i couldn't help but feel that it could have been a bit more than what it was. there were all sorts of elements that were hinted at that could have been fleshed out more. i certainly could have used more straight satire like the flakey restaurant that asks you what your deepest emotional scar is before they let you order, for example. but i think aubrey plaza is pure gold, and overall i thought this was a pretty good movie that didn't quite fulfill its potental. 3.5/5
