The Buddy Holly Story (1978)

Love it. Busey was amazing, I know some people didn't like his singing in it but he sang everything live and I thought it added depth.

Yeah, it was Busey before he was Busey so he kinda sinks into the role well.  I actually never watched it for years because I remember The Real Buddy Holly docu produced by Paul McCartney which was made as a reaction to this in regards to inaccuracies in it.  Stupid fuckin’ reason not to watch a movie but I guess I just took ‘inaccuracies’ to mean its a load of shit but its really not.  

Absolutely love Buddy Holly too, I think he was fantastic, That’ll Be The Day has to be like...top fuckin’ 5 best rock n roll songs ever, along with the original Long Tall Sally its almost impossible to tire of.  They were just so unique, Buddy I think was the first guy to play a Strat, or the first big guy, that clean ringing tone to it and those rolling drum sounds, so thin its almost like its being done on cardboard but with a kind of deep echo, its so weird to explain but The Crickets sound unlike any band before or since, they’re fuckin’ brilliant.  Thats all I really ask of a band, just fuckin’ do something different, be you, they were rock n roll but they were pure Texas too.

Buddys immortalised in those show shots as this speccy nerd but he was a bad motherfucker behind closed doors according to the stories.

And of course everyone else knows Peggy Sue etc but Rave On, shit, that song is pure fuckin’ rocker

No doubt, he was ahead of his time not only as a musician but in production and studio engineering.  I think if he had lived he would've become a music executive tycoon.

Training Day is one intense movie. The acting in the scene when they have the shotgun on him in the bathtub is worth watching the whole movie for.

I've actually never watched The Buddy Holly Story, which is odd. I love music history, I love his music and I love music biopics. On top of that, I've always heard good things about the movie. Maybe I need to finally break down and watch it.

Leaving Las Vegas (1995)

(Apparently Nicolas Cage wanted to be drunk throughout the entire shooting of the film but the director didn't allow it, so he ended up only being really drunk in one scene.)

Great movie and performance made even more disturbing by what happened to the writer, John O'Brien. Yeah, a lot of actors have tried the "being drunk to play drunk" thing and it usually doesn't work. Robert Shaw tried the Indianapolis monologue in Jaws when he was sloshed and it was disastrous. He came back sober, apologized to Spielberg, and absolutely nailed it.

Edit: Do you know what scene Cage was really drunk in? Just curious.

It's the scene in the casino where he goes crazy and security comes to throw him out. He doesn't have many lines, and I imagine most is improvised, so I guess that is why Mike Figgis agreed that he could be drunk for that one.

What Cage had in mind was that he would wear an earpiece and someone would tell him his lines on the spot and he could repeat it, but I can see why Figgis wouldn't go for that.

Another trivia fact, I've seen this movie several times before but I never noticed that Julian Lennon plays a bartender in one of the scenes until I watched it last night!

Didn't he win an oscar for this movie. It was so sad.

I did get to meet Gary at another Texas Frightmare. He was in Silver Bullet, what a cool movie it was. Gary is a very eccentric guy. His son Jake was there but had to leave early as his wife was having a baby. Anyway, it was the year he was on the Celebrity Apprentice. I thought he was pretty good on that show. I told him he had a lot of heart and should have won.

La Bamba was another good movie but also sad. Richie and Buddy were on the same plane.

Busey was a Best Actor nominee, Jon Voigt won it for his role in Coming Home. Yeah, Silver Bullet is awesome. Everett McGill was really good in his priest/werewolf role.
