I want to catch up on some of the TV series that I never saw because I don't have cable.Is LOST season 1 out yet?Also, should I get Dave Chapelle? I never saw it. What season is better, 1 or 2?Ali G? Curb Your Enthusiasm?Not into 6 Feet Under.What else is good?I don't think I can do 24. I liked the first season but it's a little much I think. Also, what movies are suggested?I like anything really. So far in my queqe are the following. Serpico, Blood Simple and Evil Dead 2 are the ones that I've seen already, but wifey has not. Sleepy Hollow Blood Simple SerpicoRumble Fish Rosemary's Baby Crimes and Misdemeanors The Battle of Algiers M Rashomon The Wild Bunch Solaris Summer of Sam Badlands It's All Gone Pete Tong Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

    I don't know what that means, dude.

    Hey, was Ken Burns "Civil War" any good?

    I'm not a fan of dude but still...

    Sleepy Hollow

    Blood Simple

    Serpico

    Rumble Fish

    Rosemary's Baby

    Crimes and Misdemeanors

    The Battle of Algiers

    M

    Rashomon

    The Wild Bunch

    Solaris

    Summer of Sam

    Badlands

    It's All Gone Pete Tong

    Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn

    I haven't seen Pete Tong - and I'm not a Woody Allen fan - but that's a wicked list.
    Try HBO's Carnivale. Moss turned me on to it and Bam can back it up - it's wicked. Sexy, smart, creepy, beautiful to look at and great characters and story-telling.

    they've made an almost myspacish section of netflix where you can sign up friends and look at their queues and send recommendations and what have you. go to the site and click the friends tab.

    Oh yeah I just sent it over to you. The name that it's coming from isn't mine though, it will be p******n@shu.edu - my lady's name. Or it may be from S***** P*** okay?

  • touki bouki just got released on dvd. dope senegalese film about youth on the run from the law. kinda like badlands and most godard jammies but set in dakar. i highly recommend it.

    Cool.

    What's the OG movie that they based "Brasil" after?

  • CosmoCosmo 9,767 Posts
    I just reserved "Spirited Away" even though I'm not really big on cartoons. Also I got "Brian's Song" the OG cause that's my shit.

  • Also, should I get Dave Chapelle? I never saw it. What season is better, 1 or 2?

    Hell yeah. I like the one where Dave tests his theory that white people love electric guitar, black people love drums and spanish people like "electric piano with gibberish yelled on top of it". Charlie Murphy's Rick James stories are also great.

    I just got 'The Thing With Two Heads'. If you're into incredibly long and silly motorcycle chases involving guys with two heads and bongo-raer soundtrack, I highly recommend it.

  • What season is better, 1 or 2?

    hmm, not sure. I saw it after the fact via netflix so it's all a jumble in between the windmills of my mind.

  • Cool.

    What's the OG movie that they based "Brasil" after?

    i didnt realize there was one. maybe youre thinking of another gilliam flick 12 monkeys which was based on chris marker's la jetee?

  • CosmoCosmo 9,767 Posts
    Nah, like Deltaland or something like that...

  • Companeros
    The Great Silence (Corbucci)
    Diabolik

    ...Battle Of Algiers is sooo great.

  • I just reserved "Spirited Away" even though I'm not really big on cartoons. Also I got "Brian's Song" the OG cause that's my shit.



    I dig most of the director's, Miyazaki, work. I just picked up "Porko Rosso" on DVD, which is a funny tale about a flying pig in post-W.W.I. Italy.



    On the TV tip, you might want to try the HBO series "Entourage," which is lite, popcorn fare that is not laugh-out-loud funny, but good nonetheless.



    My last Netflix movies, a few classics and one that I have never seen before:



    1.) Born on the Fourth of July,

    2.) Godfather Part II

    3.) Sword of Doom



    Incoming:



    Twin Peaks, Season 1, Disc 2.

  • i just got Brown Bunny in the mail through my netflix...word to the wise don't waste yout time.

    This movie was absolutley awful...and I've been a fan of Vincent Gallo. I don't know what was going through his head, but this seemed as if it was intentionally bad.

    check out "Kontroll"

  • i just watched michael mann's first movie 'thief' and james caan is a bad ass in it.

    sopranos season 5 finally came out on dvd

    curb yr enthusiasm season 4 as well

    does deadwood live up to the hype? i thought 6 feet under was boring.

    born into brothels

    muppet show

    no direction home scorsese bob dylan movie (or you can tune in tonight on pbs)

    Bad ass is right. Great film.

    sopranos season 5 finally came out on dvd

    Saw it on TV.



    does deadwood live up to the hype? i thought 6 feet under was boring.

    Me too. I couldn't get into Deadwood, even with ODub's recommendation.



    muppet show


    NOW WE'RE TALKING...

  • as i too celebrate michael mann's entire catalog, now's a good time to mention miami vice season 1 & 2 which i think mann directed a bunch of. also check for dude's dad, anthony mann, who directed a bunch of westerns and a few film noirs which are also very good.

  • What season is better, 1 or 2?
    Go with 2.

    he really didn't get what he deserved at the end - but what a great movie.

  • Is it safe?

    dentist visits have never been the same since i saw this

    I watched One Nite in Mong Kok recently, so that's one that comes to mind. Really surprised me because most hk flicks nowadays are rubbish. Great cinematography and pacing.

  • bassiebassie 11,710 Posts
    dustin hoffman hasn't been the same either. his whole straight time, midnight cowboy, dog day afternoon, marathon man, kramer vs kramer era was so amazing
