so i guess that's the best way to do it. this weekend i saw
The OX-BOW INCIDENT
I also saw the first maybe hour of purple rain on tv but i won't count that. anyway I'll break em down to you one after the other. also cause if i don't i'll forget to do this.
this film is part of a little sub genre of sci-fi films made by studios right after star wars hoping for another big hit. Saturn 7 is a better example then this. but in both cases they made like no money cause they weren't written that well and star wars was like a good movie which is why people liked it. anyway this isn't actually that bad and I kind found it entertaining but it is a bad movie. but as a historical document of how bad a studio wanted a big hit like star wars it's great. even with a star wars sounding score. but wait there's more a cute robot and a 20011 esque ending. if you like sci fi i say see it cause you'll think it's fun. also Robert Forester does a good job and i wish people would cast him more.
The OX-BOW INCIDENT
I really knew nothing about this movie before seeing it but shit is this a good movie. I all ready want the dvd. basically the majority of the film is a mob trying to figure out if they should hang these 3 guys who may or may not have killed there friend. It's really a great movie acting everything the best it can be. the film stars Henry Fonda who of course is good and was Directed by William a Wellman. who goes way back his film wings won the first best picture oscar in 1927 and he directed the public enemy and the original star is born. also i think he witnessed the birth of christ ok maybe he's not that old but you get the point. I also want to point out at a 76 minute running time. This film is an easy film to watch right before going to bed or something.
oh and a quote from imdb triva
"When he was a child, Henry Fonda's father took him to the Omaha town square to show him the results of a lynching the night before. When young Henry asked what this had to do with them, the elder Fonda replied "Lynching is the business of any man who's around." Fonda made sure that this line (or a slight reworking of it) was inserted into the script."
I saw this one in theater and yeah i am really late seeing it. let me say despite the fact that i didn't make a top ten list for 2006 this i really think is the best film of the year. There's really a lot about it and i'm still talking to people about it. I guess that is the ultimate compliment of this film. that I've talked to people a while ago and there still debating it.
the special effects are good and the acting is just crazy good espically Sergi López who plays the captain who is bacially the villian. he is so fucking scary and creepy and wounderful. I don't know how he didn't get a nomination he was just amazing.
This isn't a kids movie but I think if your kids are 12 they would love it. it's also not a happy film. it's just ..... you know just see it. it's really alot in there it all works it's great and i really want the dvd like right now. really this is a beautiful film.
did you make it this far. may i almost didn't this post is long anyway. I heard this was cliched and the plot was predictable. I don't really know what movie they saw. I mean it isn't the best thing in the universe but it is fun. and it's good at that. so you know who cares. that's basically it. it's fun. the album idlewild doesn't have to much to do with the movie. and they even use several songs off the previous album love below but not speakerboxx. the movie works. it's just fun nothing more then that you know.
also how come no best original song nomination for outkast. dreamgirls got 3 for like the worst stuff in the movie, melissa etheridge's song sucked, and the randy newman song was just sappy shit. these were original songs made for a movie. but oh well
i guess if your an outkast fan you'll like it or if you just like a fun movie.
that's it hope you read it all see you tomorrow
