I watched 2 cable movies:

We die young with Jean Claude Van Damme

The Appearance a movie about witchcraft in olden days. It was pretty good. A different take on possession.

Gotti (1996)

Anyone see the Gotti with John Travolta? I'm curious as to how he was.

I was very little when Gotti was alive in Howard Beach NY. 

Anyone watch the Lifetime movie about Victoria and her dad. That woman is in real denial. lol

I only watched it because Maurice Bernard from GH played John. Otherwise, the movie was pure bullshit. Like I said Victoria is in HUGE denial when it comes to her dad.

The Salton Sea (2002) by D.J. Caruso

Cast: Val Kilmer, Vincent D'Onofrio, Peter Sarsgaard, Doug Hutchison, Anthony LaPaglia, Deborah Kara Unger, Glenn Plummer, Chandra West, Luis Guzman, Adam Goldberg, Danny Trejo

Cinematography: Amir Mokri

Music: Thomas Newman

 

Another criminally overlooked masterpiece. Brilliant acting, great story, beautifully filmed, flawless direction and music.

Like all the great movies, this one is not what it seems to be. There are many layers in this movie. Sure, it's about tweakers, but it's also about friendship, revenge, lost love. It's about looking for your place in the world. And it's fucking entertaining. And accurate.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout... for like the 5th time.

Definitely my favorite of the M:I films, but they're all great in their own way, with the last three being the best of the series. Can't wait for the next two over the next couple of years.

I watched it cuz someone on the forum mentioned it, this thread, stuck in my head, then I saw an interview with Michael Franceze and he mentioned it as one of the best mob films he's ever seen in terms of realism and i went hey thats the movie the guy on the forum was talking about, so I watched it.  So since I watched that I watched the other one he mentioned, Witness to the Mob.  Liked em both actually, they ain't the Godfather but good, entertaining enough, Gotti especially, quite good for a TV movie.

For me Armand Assante will always be Dwight Towers.

Although any suggested violence against animals generally distresses me...the pigeon re-enactment of JFK‚Äôs assassination is...well...really fucking funny. ūüė≥¬†¬†

What happened to Jeremy Renner's character? I thought it was too long and too many car chases. lol

No but it did kinda compound my lack of desire to watch it.  I just, I dunno, when I wanna watch a mob thing I wanna watch a mob thing, y'know?  I dunno about delight though, I want The Sopranos to be good, I want to be entertained, it just doesn't look like it has it.  I've never gotten on with spoofs either.  Like Don't Be a Menace, Scary Movie, Blazing Saddles, I've never even seen Blazing Saddles.  They're kinda like...I dunno, one note jokes?  I don't mind sending things up but you gotta be clever about it which I suspect The Sopranos might be so, y'know, I might give it a go.  I think there's a lot of these 'new' yank TV shows I might like but, I dunno, I'm very much a movies kid, eight seasons of some shit, thats a lot of time for me to invest in some shit for it to turn out dud.  There's some gangster shit here in England called Peaky Blinders that looks interesting too.  The Wire has Meth-Tical in it which is fuckin' reccomendation enough, I've watched some pure fuckin' bullshit just to see my man Meth' in a movie (like The Cobbler, what the fuck was that about it?  But its alright cuz its Meth' :lol:) 

But yeah, I'm a movies kinda kid, TV is like...meh, I dunno, doesn't do it for me really.  Though as per usual that shit is probably great and I'll arrive at the party 15 years late or whatever.

It really is, but it's a fun little film with some decent early Beatlesque songs in it... plus I always like films about bands, especially from that era.

I guess to a few generations thats like a dream, being in a band that makes it big.

It's been a dream of mine. Or maybe not to make it big, I don't know if I would enjoy being in a popular band, but to be succesful with my music.

What I also like about this film is the dynamics between the bandmembers. I have played in bands for a long time and it's recognizable, there is always the talented one, the one who doesn't care, the smart one, the one who is ready to leave the band at any moment. That is how this film ends, they score one big hit and then they break up... it is realistic, it's very difficult to keep a band together. I would have enjoyed it less had it ended with them being the next big band from the 60's.

I think I've seen it in the 90's a couple of times, but I'm always looking for drinking movies and then I thought of this one. It needs a lot of music, and after watching Dazed and Confused and Almost Famous a couple of billion times after getting fucked up, I needed something new... and this one worked rather well the other day.
