What DVD are you watching lately?

I have BBC's Persuasion on, but I can't really get into. I've heard thought that BBC's Sense & Sensibility is good. Of course I"ve watched the Ang Lee Emma Thompson version which is superb... I may get it this week to see  :P

"La Ceremonie" (Isabelle Huppert, Sandrine Whats-her-name, dir Chabrol). Cold-shivers time just due to the directing. Masterly sinister "what's coming now?" movie.

Yes, triple post. So shoot me.

Halloween (2007)
Rob Zombie remake. I thought it was awesome (for a horror movie)! Rob Zombie knows how to make a horror. I don't have any attachment to the original movies, so my thoughts on this are solely on its own. Long, and slightly drawn out, but good.

I guess I've only watched 19 horror movies so far in October...dunno if I'll make it to 31!

Yes! Excellent film, AC. I could've done without the rape scene, though. I hate rape scenes.

I just watched V for Vendetta. Again. Always amazing! :)

Very cool. :) Did you ever see the sequel Zombie did for Halloween? It was pretty awesome as well.

Well the Spice Voting is pretty scarey to watch, AC; you could count that....

I watched Alfred Hitchcock's "The 29 Steps" last night. Was decent. It was his first hit, from his early career, and there were lots of sparks of his talent. For an old B/W on a laptop it wasn't bad... 3/5

Also watched Snows of Kilmanjaro with Gregory Peck and Susan Hayward. Just didn't like it. There were parts that were ok, and the dialog was fantastic, with lots of Hemmingway-isms in there, but so little action, and so Hollywood-ized. 2/5

Then there was Vincent Price in The Last Man On Earth, upon which Hollywood has tried to improve not once with Charlton Heston in Omega Man, but twice with Will Smith in I Am Legend. Each had their merits and it hard to pick a fav, but I think it would be the middle one Omega Man. I didn't like the ending of The Last Name On Earth, but I thought Vincent Price did a fantastic job, almost as good as he was as the mysterious bad man in Brady Bunch Hawaii Vacation ;) 3/5

That's all for now.

Wow, I totally have to see RZ's Halloween now, after all these accolades. Love his tunes, old and new, and kinda liked Devil's Rejects. But I discounted the Halloween remakes because the originals are so cheesy now. Though I hate rape scenes as well.

So far as V for Vendetta, blew chunks! BUT Zack Galafinakus's "Between Two Ferns" interview with Natalie Portman with lines like "V For Vagina" was AWESOME!!!

Devil's Rejects is cool! I like Zombie's nods to classics like Last House on the Left, Hills Have Eyes, etc in his style of filmmaking. You can tell these are the types of films he loved and studied.

And Charlie, the original Halloween is not cheesey! It's awesome!!

Coco Before Chanel (Audrey Tautou). Excellent performances as always, though a bit slow. Tautou still says more with her eyes than her lips.

I'm sorry no one like V for Vendetta. Haha! Kidding. To each their own. But I do agree the Halloween movies by Zombie were and are great. I'm also a fan of his House of 1000 Corpses. I read somewhere, the house they used in that movie was on the same street as where The Burbs was filmed. Anyone remember that movie?

Yabbit -- Is that the fictional documentary (I don't know the term) that was just released?

I love that whole series of films!

Finished watching "Coco Before Chanel"...the end was disappointing. Not in itself but because they sort of patched on an end with no continuity. I got the feeling they had started to make a miniseries and couldn't and they just kind of ended it there. Tautou is perfect though.
Josh, it's from 2009.

I liked V for Vendetta.  What I think makes the movie good is the multitude of themes - some obvious, some are better depending on what other fiction and history books you've read.
