Man, Steve McQueen was the King of Cool.
Watched John Carpenter's Dark Star last night. I think I last saw it at a midnight matinee around 1977. Lowest of the low budget sci-fi films. It's fun to watch again just to see what they used for set decorations and props; i.e. upside down plastic ice cube trays and viewmaster reels for control panel buttons, vacuum cleaner hoses, and a duct tape spacesuit with a plastic corn-popper dome for a helmet.

I heard he made it in film school, but I don't know for sure.
Still good for a few laughs.

I saw this the other night too. Great is a little strong imo, but it was entertaining and Heath Ledger's performance was worthy of the hype.

KSC02 - is this your first time watching this movie? strange gives the feeling that you didn't enjoy this. I thought, and think, that this is a great, great movie. if you didn't hate it, wait a few months and watch it again. I come away thinking that this could solve a lot of our world's problems (the fighting part, not the anarchy and getting rid of credit and government).

A movie well ahead of its time, and a fantastic soundtrack by Vangelis.
Yep. I like the Director's Cut, with the exception of the "daydreaming about unicorns" part. Makes the issue of whether Deckert is a replicant less ambiguous.
I watched Pekinpah's the Wild Bunch last night. I thought it was a fabulous movie up until the final shootout which was kind of anticlimactic.

What? Only 2.5 stars? Shocking! A mainstream movie with a character named Pussy Galore has gotta be worth another 1/2 star or more Wink

And besides, where else are you going to find such colorful dialogue such as, "No, Mr. Bond, I don't expect you to talk; I expect you to die!"

Yeah, but some good acting by De Niro and a helluva car chase scene or two... wouldn't you agree?
Tonight, one of my three favorite movies of the year (although I think they all actually came out last year):

Children of Men

The other two: Pan's Labyrinth, Juno

Not a 'bad' movie, just not my style of movie.
I would be willing to give it a second go again, in the future.

The 'twist' of it all was interesting. Just a bit disturbing I suppose.
