THE SNOWMAN is sure to be the hottest (MORE LIKE COLDEST) movie of the season that features a script where 15% of it wasn't shot, entire scenes rephrased in ADR, and TWO alcoholic cops who don't play by the rules

I'm sure other movies are coming out, but why would anyone compete with this juggernaut

    I was at a short film festival where a really weird thing happened and all of them were really good? Usually at short film fests, there are at least a couple of clunkers. But this one was all good-to-great, which was very cool!

    One of my favorites was this Chan-wook Park (in Sympathy for Lady Vengeance mode) riff about siblings and crimes, and it was gross and funny and sad and all shot in subtitled Korean even though it was filmed in Burbank. It ain't online yet, but I'll probably post it if/when it is - it was a treat. It was called "Lost Dogs," and that team is gonna do some cool-ass shit if they keep on the rise. Trailer for it's here:


    On the more overtly comedic side, there was "Groundhog Day for a Black Man," which plays the very smart card of offloading its whole premise right there in the title. So it gets into the jokes immediately, no long setup or over-explanation. Immaculately cut, well-shot and well-acted, funny as hell. Good stuff.


    Another favorite was a bittersweet high school romance vignette, "Pop Rox." Dynamite lead performance, quietly heartbreaking without any outsized tragedy, warmly funny - lovely piece. Full thing isn't online, but there's a trailer:


    Short film festivals are cool! I'm not just saying that because this one had an open bar!

    Groundhog Day for a Black Man was excellent.

    And Pop Rox looks solid. If Kimia Behpoornia doesn't end up way more shit, it'll be a tragedy. I haven't seen her in that many things, but she's always the best part.

    I saw American Made yesterday and it was a lot of fun

    Doug Liman knows how to frame it so Tom Cruise's usual charms feel desperate (in a good way, that serves the character)

    and I'm glad that it doesn't shy away from how fucked the things America was doing were

    It, like all good things set in the 80s, ends up with the ultimate villain being Reagan

    I'll probably see Snowman even though I know it's going to be bad and that I liked Happy Death Day last week more than it and I'll like Jigsaw next week more than it

    Also it's opening against both Madea Halloween and Geostorm

    Just a real bad month for it imo

    http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2017/10/19/val_kilmer_s_appearance_in_the_snowman_is_incredibly_bizarre.html
    The first intimation that The Snowman is going to be a cataclysm of truly epic proportions comes when Val Kilmer enters the picture as a detective investigating the same killer’s crimes in the city of Bergen nine years earlier. Kilmer’s Gert Rafto sits silent as a man tells him about his missing wife, and when it’s his turn to speak, the film cuts abruptly to a shot from behind Kilmer’s head so he’s only visible as a silhouette. His shoulders jerk as he talks, like a puppet being operated by an unseen hand. It’s only subtly disorienting at first, but then you realize that the voice that’s purportedly coming out of Kilmer’s mouth doesn’t sound like him at all, and when the film finally cuts to his face on his third (of three total) lines, it’s clear Kilmer’s lines have been redubbed by another actor.

    This, uh, continues

    Alright, I'm going to find a way to watch The Snowman and Geostorm back to back at one of the local theaters with booze. This weekend is too busy, but next weekend is probably doable. It will fill the Camp Counseling void.

    Inspired by @Poorochondriac I decided to take stock of my favourite short films I've seen this year. So far, this one comes out on top easily. It's about a bunch of fourteen year old girls who get bored and put 400 goldfish in a swimming pool. It's called "And So We Put Goldfish In The Pool". Also, it won Short Film Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year.

    He plays the sophisticated & very reasonable villain to Will Forte's sociopathic "hero."

    one of those articles mentioned Kilmer said at some point during production that he was "healing from cancer," and maybe it was interfering with his speech maybe?

    MacGrubber is funny as hell so yeah watch it.

    As for Kilmer being dubbed over. I can completely understand it. I saw him recently and his voice is jacked up. He blamed it on a cold but videos I've seen since and before then kinda hint at it not being the case. Cancer has done a number on him for sure.

    Another problem is this: snowmen aren’t scary, and when you try too hard to make them scary, you just make it worse. The movie is strewn with camera pans from innocent-looking street scenes to … THREATENING SNOWMAN FACE, and the effect is very Dramatic Chipmunk, only less dynamic. To top off all of the ineffective weirdness, the movie ends on a tone-deaf “got a sequel if you want it” note. I do believe, and I’m sorry for this, that it’ll be a cold day in hell before any such thing materializes.

    Yeah

    So, Tarantino says he knew about several incidents with Weinstein and didn't come forward.
    “I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino tells The New York Times in a new interview. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things. I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”
    Tarantino says "everyone who was close to Harvey had heard of at least one of [these] incidents” and encourages the men who know more details about Weinstein to come forward and be honest.

    Variety wrote:
    The “Inglourious Basterds” director said that although he was aware of those instances, he didn’t put them together into an overall pattern of behavior by Weinstein, and continued to make films with him — which Tarantino said he now regrets.

    “What I did was marginalize the incidents,” he recalled. “Anything I say now will sound like a crappy excuse.”
