I've only seen the first one (a lasting experience) and am planning on watching the second film.

My 5 favourite films from this year would be:


For making me fall in love with Keanu Reeves.


For making me fall in love with River Phoenix. I wouldn't have watched this if I hadn't watched The Matrix.


This one was trippy, I tell you. Very black humour. Even more than in Trainspotting. Yeah, Danny, you dig that stuff.


This film made me realize how much I love The Edge.


I thought I'd hate it. But then again, I always thought I'd hate The Matrix. Talking about prejudices...

That was a pretty tough decision and I had to kick out "2001: A Space Odyssey". Because I watched like... 130 films this year.

Why did we never discuss this earlier? ^^ I think John Constantine was probably Keanu's best performance. Ever. From what I've seen. ^^ Even better than Neo and Scott Favor, yes. Twisted Evil

Oooooh, you liked Dorian Gray. A positive evaluation. That's cool. I still need to watch it though. Smile

Lord of the Rings... I don't know where to start... I was really into it when the films were out and the films have the most epic soundtrack ever. God bless you, Howard. Surprised

Harry Potter is just... everything. It's basically my life. Or at least a great part of it. 12 years. Long time.

Oh yes, I absolutely agree! He was just MAGNIFICENT in Constantine
He seems to be considerably improving with time, bless him

Ben is the greatest asset of that movie, I have to say
It just wouldn't be the same without him. Ben simply IS Dorian, heh
I can't honestly say that I was overwhelmed by the movie itself, but if you like Ben you'll sure enjoy it Very Happy

Oh God, I have such a bad crush on John Constantine. It's not healthy. ^^

I disagree. I loved him in his earlier films, too.

Check out "Young Again", it's on Youtube, if you haven't seen it yet. It's probably the worst film Disney has ever produced, but it contains Keanu dancing to Madonna and "Shout" by the Isley Brothers. And he's quite hilarious in the whole film. Aaaaaaahhhh, awwwww, baby Keanu. <3 <3 <3

I think I forgot to add River's Edge to the list.

Which also feature's Donovan's daughter Ione Skye.



Great film.

Yeah, Harry Potter pretty much is one of the things that shaped my life. And Oasis. (Who are playing on iTunes right now, yayay.) I cannot reject neither. Both Oasis and Harry Potter just... they just mean so much to me. After all these years. OK, Oasis are now condensed in one person, but that's ok. I love Noel. <3 <3 <3

People who have never been into Oasis don't understand it. ^^

It was love at first sight for me. 2002. Turned on the TV. "The Hindu Times" kicked in. I thought "Wow, those guys are interesting. I have never heard something like that before". What I didn't know back then and in the years to come was that I loved the guitar. More than anything else. So...... Noeeeelllll. <3


Are you wubbing about Keanu or Ione Skye Leitch? Or both? ^^ (I have to admit that I always scrutinize her face. I do see some similarities... It's the chin, I think. And the awkward grin, awhahahaha. And the nose. Probably.)

OK, here's a scene: youtube com / watch?v=XgcYVNKGUg8

And here's Keanu dancing to "Burning Up" (I know the song because of the film, that is, for half a year. XD I swear, I cannot remember ever having heard it before.) youtube com / watch?v=108OwZYsw9Q

I'm really going to struggle to limit my list to five.

My computer is k-wazy, so I can't do pictures right now. I'll come back and edit later.

1) The film that reassured me that my crazy film ideas aren't TOO crazy:
BEING JOHN MALKOVICH

2) The film that I have watched a bazillion times, and look forward to watching a bazillion more:
GHOSTBUSTERS

3) The film that made me realise how boring linear narratives are boring (thus influencing every screenplay I write):
MULHOLLAND DRIVE

4) The film that epitomiseds my ideal high school life - hot, mysterious rebellious guy and killing a bunch of bitches:
HEATHERS

5) The film that made me realised how freakin' awesome Anton Newcombe is (it's also the best rock'n'roll film ever):
DiG!

Honorary mentions must be awarded to Dead Man, Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Black Swan, Oldboy, Moon, Pan's Labyrinth, The Machinist, Labyrinth, Scream, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Re-Animator, Donnie Darko and Fight Club.

5)

Well, I like their music well enough, it's just that I rather dislike Noel's brother for those asinine things he was in the habit of saying, you know lol
Radiohead/Thom hater, grrr ;p

It's a shame really that whenever the narrative is not linear, I am immediately irritated and confused. Always. It never occurs to me that there could be non-linear narratives. Of course, I think about it in my head quite often, but in reality it's a different thing. Sure, they are more interesting films, but not good for my self worth. I cannot even say that it was a good film because always come out frustrated. I should do a course on this. I always try to get my writing to be non-linear, but it never works.

So, the film was interesting. But I could never say it was "good", if you know what I mean? There's just something so disturbing about the unlinearness, which I guess was Lynch's intended effect, but... I cannot grasp it. Maybe I simply cannot equate "confusing" with "good", which is pretty stupid, I admit that. ^^

Maybe because it so works against the way I think. I believe there are people who just get non-linear narratives and some who don't. My thinking is just too linear. Or rather... impulsive, non-structured. And non-linear narratives are much too structured in the sense that cause and effect (which I dig, personally) are more important than anything else. They're mixed up. Reversed. They are run parallel to each other. And some films just have no beginning or end.

It's completely understandable. Most non-linear narratives are confusing. They're not usually intended for mainstream audiences, for that reason. I mean, have you ever seen a chick-flick that tricks you into thinking you're watching scenes from the present, before confusing you by revealing it's actually either the future or the past, but who can be sure which?? The closest example would be The Notebook, but even that was perfectlu spelled out... plus, I don't really think flashbacks necessarily count, so perhaps that's not a valid example. My point is, non-linear films are made for people who don't mind thinking about the film, both while they're watching and after they've watched it.

Quote :

I love love LOVE it in films when the cause and effect is flipped, but not when it's too obvious. I hate it when films open with the climax, then go back to a week earlier or some other designated time in the past. I like it when the effect is subtle (not like someone sitting in jail or being shot), so when the cause is finally revealed, it doesn't necessarily jump around yelling "I AM THE REASON HE HAS A GUN POINTING TO HIS HEAD!". I'm probably not making sense.

Oh, and most films without endings are just a cop-out. If you've got a weird, twisted mystery on your hands, why ruin it with an explanation. I mean, would Donnie Darko be as interesting with a proper ending??

This movie is perfection, there's not a moment when you get bored
by the story, is just awesome, you have at least known one of the
characters in your life, i just watch it for the first time a couple of weeks ago,
and i'm planning to buy it.

Donnie Darko's a bit easier to watch because the plot itself is pretty complex, so they won't have to switch time that often.

I like non-typical endings. Now I feel like making a favourit film endings thread. ^^

OK, let's think of endings that are not that typical...

  • Inception (I bet you've seen that coming. What I liked most about the film though was the style. I don't dig Nolan's action scene ambitions that much, but I like the visual feel of the film.)
  • I'm just checking my film list (^^) and coming across "Somewhere" reminds me that Sofia's films always... they never have a proper ending. Or maybe just "The Virgin Suicides", even though that one leaves you dissatisfied.
  • American Beauty (The non-typical thing for me is that it's structured like a crime film, which I never watch.) It's pretty open.
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey Oh hai there. ^^
  • The Time Traveler's Wife
  • The Ghost Writer Because it is so unexpected. Or rather... you kind of saw it coming, but you were not completely convinced.
  • Shallow Grave
  • My Own Private Idaho It's a pretty realistic ending, which in too many films is not the case. Of course, you want to explore the means of films and if you have the opportunity to do something you couldn't do in real life, that's fine with me. But not always.
  • Brazil
  • The Devil's Advocate

Oh, The Matrix. <3

I still have to watch Lemony Snicket.

OK, um, this may sound a bit strange, but I want to watch... every film that Thomas Newman has scored.

Including "Skyfall". It will be interesting, I'm sure.

Constantine. <3 I refused to watch it for a while because I expected it to be bad, but I was positively surprised. I love Keanu Reeves in it.
