    I like Creepy Cronenberg too, chk out Naked Lunch. Videodrome is a cult classic, James Woods puts the VHS tape into his abdomen, good times. Creepier than John Carpenter.
    my sig = videodrome :)

    I enjoy Cronenberg too, but prefer Lynch's style. Dune is probably on the bottom of the list for me, behind Erasherhead, Blue Velvet, Elephant Man, Mulholland Dr and even Inland Empire. I guess i am a fan of weird, and movies where you have to drop your guard, which Brent is too cool for.

    • Is Prince of Persia gonna be any good? I don't know why, but I can't watch Jake Gyllenhal without thinking emo Donnie Darko, or homosexual Brokeback Mountain...

          Off topic, but Brokeback Mountain is a really good movie. I think I'm going to watch it tonight or tomorrow

            The NPR review of Antichrist earlier today was awesome. And Chaos...reigns might be my favorite scene of the year.

            • People either hate Antichrist or love it, I'll make up my own mind tonight.

              Here's what Ebert said:

              The performances by Dafoe and Gainsbourg are heroic and fearless...And if you can think beyond what he shows to what he implies, it's depth are frightening...

                I admit it, I never got Inland Empire or U-Turn. Got p/o Mulholland Drive, the film that introed Nicole Kidman's HS BF Naomi Watts to Hollywood. Lynch's strobe lights always gives viewers a migraines. Ever notice all his films have a closeup shot of a cigarette being lit by a match in slomo?

                Eraserhead & Elephant Man benefited greatly from the b&w for creepy atmosphere. Dune featured his stock retinue of actors, incl. Grace Zabriskie, Kyle MacLachlan, the late Jack Vance (title role in Eraserhead), Sherilyn Fenn, like in Wild At Heart & of course the top of the Lynch heap, sorry I forgot it b/c it's a TV series, Twin Peaks, & the sequel film Fire Walk With Me, with Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer who looked great naked. Loved me some One-Eyed Jacks, the Owl Cave, the backwards-speaking dwarf & the Log Lady. Twin Peaks became an overnight cult classic.

                The Dennis Hopper villain in Blue Velvet is modern cinema evil classic character, sucking on that cylinder of gas, all sneering intimidation.

                Just loved Nicholas Cage as Sailor in Wild at Heart: This whole world is wild at heart & crazy on top!

                  I too thought Stewart's Oscar ceremonies were funny, but the Academy disagreed, they prefer Jay Leno/Letterman-type bellylaugh pedestrian humor.

                  Note that most Academy voting members are very very old, explains why Clint ******* Eastwood keeps getting anointed as a "genius" & winning Best Picture while Scorsese or The Dark Knight gets screwed. Or Bollywood extravaganzas like Slumdog, hey to win an Oscar it has to be box office-bankable, to hell with the content, it's all about the benjamins

                  I would like a Ben Stiller-hosted Oscars too, Adam Baldwin, Joel McHale, even Stephen Colbert, but never Adam Sandler. I agree with APS, Bill Murray is the only surviving SNL member who should host the Oscars.
                  Was that a shot at Slumdog? It was an amazing movie that totally deserved all it has won.

                  • Slumdog was a great movie, was overrated however.

                      Indeed. I dont even think I had it in my top 5 from last year. Just one of those classic underdog stories that gets really hyped as it grows from limited release to national release. That said, it was a great movie. But In Bruges, Synechdoche, New York, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button were all head and shoulders better, and I had a few other movies rated just as good if not better then Slumdog. Im a huge Boyle fan, but that wasnt even his best movie IMO.

                      • Slumdog was my 2nd favorite movie last year so I had no problem with it winning. Would have preferred TDK but that's okay.


                        RIP TheManInBlack

                        • In burges was such an enjoyable movie. Didnt get around to finishing Button but very well done as well. I actually thought TDK was better than Slumdog, but thats just because I'm a batman fan.

                            • Really late, but I just saw the trailer for Gentleman Bronco. Hated both Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite, but the cast in GB alone may persuade me to at least give it a shot.

                                It got absolutely atrocious reviews. I dont think I heard a single good thing about it. I was kinda looking forward to it as well, as a huge FOTC fan and obviously Sam Rockwell.
