I just read that Tarsem Singh is making a film version of Snow White. It should be amazing. He hasn't made very many movies, only The Fall and The Cell, but his visuals are absolutely stunning. He makes commercials in Europe and he made the video for REM's Losing My Religion. The Cell had some very beautiful and interesting moments but the story was lousy. It was a studio film and Tarsem didn't write it so I don't hold that against him. But The Fall... The Fall is possibly my most favoritist movie of all time. The cinematography is unbelievable. Literally. It was shot in over 20 countries all over the world using no CGI. It is so breathtakingly beautiful that it can't possibly be real. But it is! A swimming elephant, an island shaped like a flutterby, and a staircase that looks like it was taken from an M.C. Escher picture. All real! I was in awe when I first saw it. I had to watch it several times and it just got better. I can't say enough about it. Oh, and the story is good too. :D And now Snow White. I can't wait. The man truly has a gift for visual art.

(Oops!  :shock:  Probably should have put this in the movies thread. Sorry!):BigB:


Yeah, The Fall was great. I caught that on Netflix and wasn't expecting much because user reviews were sort of "meh". I was very pleasantly surprised by how wonderfully crafted it was. Had me pretty choked up too. I love visually brilliant surrealist type films like that. The Cell did suffer from a poor storyline, but was wonderful to look at. Proves that you can't make a successful film with lots of flash and little substance. Mirrormask was a bit of the same. So imaginative. So beautiful to look at, but suffers from lack of engaging storyline.

What, you didn't like 'Videodrome' ?  Long live the New Flesh !  :2567:

Oh, no Videodrome is a big time favorite. I borrowed the Criterion Collection version of that film from a friend and never gave it back (I gotta give it back, now I feel bad), but haven't actually seen it in years. I should pop it in one of these nights to refresh my memory. No, the Cronenberg films I'm not that big a fan of include M Butterfly, Spider, and believe it or not... A History of Violence. I think I was expecting something else with that one. He more than made up in my opinion with Eastern Promises. I've heard talk of a sequel to that. I hope he does that one too.

Oh, btw, Jeremy Irons DOES actually have a sense of humor, who knew? I saw a hysterical UK show comedy snippet where he parodied Alan Rickman's version of 'Snape', right down to the wig and outfit,  and it was hilarious. If Rickman ever had turned down one of the films, Irons would have had the part, hands down.


That's great. I've only seen a couple of the Harry Potter films, and wasn't a big fan of them. I never read the books... I was 22 or 23 and working in a bookstore when the first one came out and wasn't really interested in reading them at the time, though they were flying off the shelf. I saw the first film and I think the second one, and thought to myself that, for a movie based on a kids book it had an extremely complicated plot. I found the first one a bit hard to follow and I think fell asleep watching it at one point. At any rate, I'd love to see Jeremy Irons take on Snape. Its gotta be hilarious. I wonder if its on Youtube.

Eastern Promises was so good. I generally don't care for sequals but I'm willing to make an exception. :D I thought I would really like A History of Violence, but... eh. Haven't seen Spider and M Butterfly was not what I expected. I really like Cronenberg's more surreal films. Lately his projects have been a little more mainstream. Still good, but more mainstream.

Yeah, you have to be friended on Facebook, but it only takes a minute. If you send me the request, I'll OK it. It's set that way for privacy.

Ok, I opened up the Photos for non-members, try it again.

I concur with all of that. Social networking is bleh, except for this, of course. For me, all things Lexx-related are the exception. Ah, the complexities of the human mind. :D
