And, what's wrong with Little Big Man?

In the vein of comedies and black comedies:

Harold and Maude
The Loved One
Where's Poppa?
Mother
The Graduate
Home for the Holidays

Oh I liked Little Big Man (Forrest Gump of the 70's) D's pick is just that much better.

Krakauer's writing is ok. From the reviews I should rent the movie. Speaking of books to become movies, I'm looking forward to C. McCarthy's The road.

All is well on the home front. Cousin Issi still has a small melon.

Cheers all

Well, tell Cousin Issi congrats! ;)

The Road looks very interesting and looking forward to it. They are trying to compare it to 2012. Two completely different animals in my opinion.

I love Jeremiah Johnson but also love LBM. Again, two completely different genres.

It does not bode well if there is ANYTHING similar in 2012 and The Road. "The Road" being a post apocalyptic nightmare. and 2012 just being a piece of digital junkfood with no logic to speak of. Following the same formula as every other piece of crap, including several people driving in the back of a speeding pickup truck in below zero temps and not only not noticing the cold, but not breathing vapor. Killing a decent character who is someone's husband, but because he is just fodder, being forgotten in the wrap up. Just garbage.

Little Big Man and Jeremiah Johnson have nothing in common other than that they take place in the 1800s and my soon-to-travel brother mentioned them.

Anyone seen that movie ONCE? That was a great movie, I thought.

Tell Issi not to faint at the gym anymore.

Careful PLOT SPOILER alert for the most horrible film 2012!!

2012 ... ah yes pure popcorn flick, eye candy crap. I liked how such a small item is capable of grinding to a halt massive gear driven loading bay door, then they float around for 10 minutes yet take on very little water. I was against 2nd husband, his fate made me smile. Too bad the annoying twins mad it through.

JJ and LBN:
ok they are not that similar, although sprawling picturesque sagas set out west during the 1800's, chronicling the life and times of men in tune with nature, oh and gun fights.

I've not seen Once, looks good and has a Czech gal in it. Any flower pot scenes D ?

My favourite movie seen this month, although it came out last year, the Reader.

just the mention of the flower pots in relation to Czech people makes me laugh...But, sadly, no. Good music though, and very true to life...I love that movie since it was made on the cheap by a non filmmaking bandmember and comes out so real and terrific...Sadly, I watched it ten times and so cannot watch it again and enjoy it....I hate that part of human nature.

Favorite spy film of all time...Three Days of The Condor...Yep...Pretty old. Man am I surprised they haven;t tried to remake it.

I hear they are coming out with a Prisoner movie.

Anyone seen 2012? What an utter, complete. absolute load of total tosh. I'll sit down now.

I just saw Coco before Chanel- what a lovely movie...very visually-pleasing (for the lack of better word) I loved the dresses, the hair, the make-up. Beautifully done.
Another favourite I saw recently was a quirky little film called Sunshine Cleaning- anyone seen that? I think it's by the same guy who did Little Miss Sunshine. Maybe he's going for a Sunshine Trilogy?
