Hows that line go, the only performance that makes it is the one that goes all the way? 

It is utter masturbation. The only bit I like is Jagger's teddy boy and gangster scenes, gelled back hair.

Its not a great film, don't get me wrong...but it has its charms.  I think principally the charm is Jagger and the idea of these like...corrupt bohemian fuckin' queero's, it plays on the worst fears of its era and their concerns about this fuckin' rock n roll generation of weirdoes, which Jagger sort of embodies.  It has decent imagery attached to it, its like one of those cinematic anomolies (i spelt that wrong) that like...you feel like it'd inspire something great but isn't so great in and of itself.  It sort of touches upon the latent homosexual tendencies inherent in the typical masculinity of the day, which is an interesting thing to explore, even if they didn't do it so well.  I just love the idea of Jagger as this weird subterranean satanic art freak living in a basement, they sort of create this other world inside London, somewhere in the recesses  of these big victorian townhouses and I love a bit of that, scratching beneath the surface for the grime.

I suspect Jagger is a bit embarrassed by it these days. Jagger is embarrassed by how subversive and grungy he actually was. Stuff like the film Cocksucker Blues he'd like to obliterate. I remember him speaking about how he couldn't write ''Brown Sugar'' now because it is so crude. 

Not quite the image for a knight of the realm sitting in the Lord's Long Room olde boy.

Do you really think so?  The embarassed bit I mean?  I would’ve thought that Cocksucker Blues, quite apart from anything else, was too artsy and actually just made their lives look kinda grim, though I’m sure the sniff and groupies shit played a part.  

They sort of thrive on their subversive bohemian reputation of old if you think about it, I mean just look at a docu like Stones in Exile and all the talk in that of kids used as drug mules etc.  
 

Brown Sugar, tasty as fuck those lyrics, he wrote em while in Oz filming Ned Kelly if I’m not mistaken.  I’ve never seen that y’know, despite owning it on DVD for years, I think I might watch it tonight.

He’s always seemed sort of embarassed about Performance, even from the 70s, I think he just thinks its a crap film.

I love it personally, The Happy Mondays sample it extensively on their first album, sampled it by sticking a tape recorder up to the telly, very Northern :lol:

His Australian accent is hilarious haha.

You can tell Jagger doesn't really like Exile, and thinks the whole world is off its head for eulogising such an unpolished ''Keefy'' hit-less mess. He struggles to hide it on that documentary.

Yeah, he's sort of talking through gritted teeth a bit, isn't he? :lol:  He's probably thinking 'is this how off my radar is?  No wonder my solo albums were shit' :lol:

They actually made 2 endings for it, one more apocalyptic and the other with Ralph Meeker getting away with his bird.  If you get the DVD they have both endings through the extras.

wow only saw the one where it blew up. Cool. A lot of movies had different endings.

Halloween 2 had the EMT guy with curly living, but most of the time he's dead.

also Jaws 4 with Michael Caine, had Mario Van Pebbles dying in one and another ending he lived. I guess alot of movies have two different endings to see what people like most.

Most of the time the original ending is way better.

The Eternal  A British movie from either the 80's or 90's. anyway, it was about a family and an ancient Druid witch. Christopher Walken had a small part. It was pretty good. A different horror movie.

Pet Cemetery 2

Darkness Falls  It's a horror movie about a very bad tooth fairy.

I've always been intrigued but for some reason I've never gotten around to actually watching it.

Lunch Meat (1987)

PLOT: Six high school seniors on a camping trip are ambushed by killer rednecks who kill their victims & sell the remains to a local hamburger joint.

It's "almost" a rip off of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's really low budget (shot on 16mm film) and it does tend to drag on in parts plus the acting is kind of corny but it's one of those films that has that certain type of charm to it. I enjoyed it nonetheless. 3 out of 5

...and here it is :)

there's always someone who will rip off a good movie and make a shit one. lol

Did you ever see "Midnight Meat Train" with Bradley Cooper and Vinnie Jones. That was an awesome movie! It was made before Brad was popular.

It's based on a Clive Barker story

A Madea Family Funeral

I think this is the best Madea movie and she went out in style!

Ghoulies 2

Finally got around to watching Joker, I really liked it. But it had one ending too many, should've ended with him dancing on the police car.

I have this on my dvr. Still hadn't watched it yet. Will try this weekend. I think I have to be in the mood for this movie. lol

Cool, I won't spoil it for you. I understand the ending and what it was trying to say but it just seemed extraneous.  But I don't have a big problem with it because Phoenix's performance makes the movie.

Saints wither in the shadow of Paul Muni.  Not really the same movie/direction though.  This one kinda shows an aging decrepit man shitting his pants and dribbling after strokes, having all kinds of weird paranoid dreams and hallucinations in Florida as advanced neuro-syphillis rots his reason and turns it into madness.  Its been absolutely slated in the review but its not half bad y’know.

Who wants to see a film about Capone shitting his pants? Sounds like Dazey The Movie to be honest.

Lifetime movie: engaged to a psycho

Miss leading title because the psycho was not the guy. lol

Not bad, but I did guess who the crazy person was and the reason behind it.

Yeah, I know Phoenix's performance was oscar worthy. I will watch it this weekend.
