Haven't been on here in a while, but I have seen a couple movies worth mentioning- and a few worth NOT! The latter I'll leave out for the most part, and get to the few good ones...

Extracted 2012: VERY good film. Low budget, but excellent storyline and characters that you actually feel for, and connect to. It's psychological and has been compared to "Inception", although I think it is WAY better (I didn't really like Inception).

Don't Look Now 1973: Oldie but goodie. Very slow moving, so don't expect a lot of adventure but if you like creepy- you'll dig this. The cinematography is excellent as is the filming, and direction. I'll take a movie like this over most modern horror films, although I'm not even sure this should be classified as horror, ??

A Band Called Death 2012: This is a documentary about the 3 black brothers who formed a Detroit punk band in 1974- and their music remained totally unknown until a few years ago. I can NOT say enough good things about this film! I LOVED it because it isn't just about the band and/or music- it is about family, integrity, and...just watch it, it is wonderful. AND the music kicks ass!

Lords of Salem 2012: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS! I have little to say other than that. This movie is contrived shite. And I like Rob Zombie's other films.

And Akhenaton: The tale you mentioned, "Turn of the Screw" is excellent, and has been adapted several times to film. My favorite is "The Innocents" from 1961, and it is VERY creepy, and leaves you totally wondering...I don't want to give anything away, but let's just say that this is a film that lends itself to much thought about what OR *who* is really the true evil?? A good one to check out! But it's moody and slow. It is very atmospheric; mood and PLOT driven film. I've tried showing this to certain friends and they lose interest. Seems that some people can't remain interested in something if stuff doesn't blow up every two seconds...

Well, I think that's about all for now, as for fairly recently seen films that are on my mind. Twisted Evil

Thanks for the info!- I had not heard of The Innocents until now. So now I have something good to check out- I watch films from that era as much as anything else. Just because the technology now allows filmmakers the opportunity to do things that they couldn't do at that time does not mean that there are not other (& arguably more important) qualities with which previous filmmakers were superior. Now I know that the novella Turn Of The Screw has this special chilly creepo atmosphere, so if a film can evoke that it is at least halfway successful. There is also not alot of "action" in the book, in the way a modern audience might understand the word, but this is not to say that "nothing happens". Looking forward to seeing what they did with it!

Just got through with "Only God Forgives." I am a huge fan of Nicolas Winding Refn and thought this one stylistically was kind of an amalgamation of all his previous work balled into one and kicked up to eleven. I'm gonna have to give it another watch or two to determine whether it's as good as I thought it was first go round. I only picked up on some of the hints of what the movie was really trying to say, and wasn't sure the nuances I picked up on were really there. I gotta say, it's a tough watch and being so, it might take a little while for me to watch it again which fortunately (or unfortunately) the movie demands.

I watched a movie the other night called "Lawless", set during the period of Prohibition, here in the States. I'd recommend it.

The movie is about some brothers who are bootleggers. I particularly enjoyed the feel of the movie, though the plot is predictable.

And, it features Jessica Chastain. So there's that.

After hearing/reading the name Twin Peaks for a couple decades, I finally watched the pilot episode (which plays like a Film- being by David Lynch) to see what all the fuss was about... & then proceeded to watch the next 29 episodes. All in all, I fucking Loved it- & even though the quality took a dive in the 2nd season- it comes around in the end. Yeah, I know that this is a TV show in the the "movie" column, but I think that I can stretch it & not thread-necro "what TV shows are you watching?" so that I can also tie into this....

GalaxiGrrrl68: I watched The Innocents & was impressed. You were right! There are some things that you can do with film that a book cannot (& vice versa) & I think that having a scriptwriter of the calibre of Truman Capote who could realise that & change the story to suit the screen is what makes it a great adaptation. The cinematography is the next Ace- so many gorgeous & inventive shots through what must have been the best cameras available at the time- so crisp. Thank you for recommending it to me Smile

I'm humbled that you took my recommendation, and I am SO glad you enjoyed the film! I was hoping you would. It's one of my favorites. Twisted Evil

Looking forward to watching the new Thor this evening after my youngest goes to sleep. Aside from this...been on a month long trip down Hong Kong films of the 80's and 90's, the Golden Age as it's referred to. No one still can beat Wong Kar-Wai's ability to pull every fathomable emotion out of you in just under 2 hrs, and with a budget smaller than a Hollywood action films catering allotment.

Perfect examples: As Tears Go By and Fallen Angels.

Weekend before last, we watched "The LEGO Movie." That is the stage of life that we currently are in.
