    oh no the awards themselves are silly

    but the show
    I mean

    It'll probably be pretty good?

    Like I can't really think of any awards show bits that have really made me go OH WOW WHAT A SHOW outside of that one Conan musical number or one of the Emmys things where they actually filmed stuff with the casts of various shows with the hosts running through them

    That was pretty great.

    Would This is England be middle England? I remember it being "midlands" at the very least, but my grasp on english geography is pretty bad.

    At any rate, it's one of my favourite films, and a pretty goddam good one.

    Did people really go into this not knowing it was a vampire movie?

    I didn't know it was a vampire movie

    This was years and years ago though, and it became obvious pretty quickly

    Middle English the language of the middle ages. So Chaucer pretty much. It'd be really cool to see a historical film that actually uses the language of the time.

    It's the mid point between Old English and Modern English. So it's both familiar and alien. You can read it fairly easily.

    An Old English film would be great too. But it would be more difficult to do.

    I think he means Middle English as in, the language of Chaucer and his contemporaries

    I'm planning on having a sci-fi/horror (space mostly) movie marathon for Halloween and I've come up this preliminary list:

    Moon
    Event Horizon
    Alien
    Aliens
    Pacific Rim
    The Thing
    Sunshine
    Pitch Black
    Attack the Block

    Maybe:
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    District 9
    Blade Runner (my roommate hasn't seen it)

    Anything else I should consider?

    I feel like Dusk till Dawn is great up until the Vampire twist, not because the twist itself is ridiculous, but because the action after that point is so lazy and half-assed. It comes off as less "there was a monster moving hiding in this film all along!" and more "um, throw some vampires in and film lots and lots of quick action cuts which disorient the viewer into thinking something badass is happening, when it really isnt"

    Also I enjoyed the Evil Dead remake better than the original, it has a kick ass ending and although the tree rape scene is still in there, its toned down and less film-ruining because of (maybe spoilers)
    the main character being a twist, where instead of the strapping level-headed white guy its the flawed but badass junkie chick who ends up ass-kicking

    wasn't dusk to dawn a slapstick comedy

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    Guh.

    I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm not opposed to older variants of English. Shakespeare is my jam and all that.

    But Chaucer...

    That was English in Alpha. Maybe pre-alpha. English before it was ready for the viewing public.

    Early access English.

    Like, I wasn't even joking. I own the collected editions and everything.

    Mostly for nostalgia purposes, but yes, I will agree, it turns to poop 2/3rds of the way through.

    I still love it though.

    By the way, I got to see a free early-screening of John Wick.

    It was incredibly brutal and it is so enjoyable watching Keanue Reeves headshot his way through a river of Russian mobsters in heated pursuit of Theon Greyjoy.

    It is really good and also this is because he's on a lot of school curriculums if only for students to memorize the first passage of the tales. But if your high school didn't do it then it's not likely you'd ever read him.

  • GvzbgulGvzbgul Registered User regular
    I didn't do Chaucer til university.
