Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (up there with PA)
High Tech Soul: The Creation of Techno Music (great geography of music documentary)
I Bet You
Marie Antoinette (still one of my favorite directors)
The Might Boosh (almost as good as what I imagine megaman would make)
The Sopranos: Season 6
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (yay multimillion dollar tone poems)
Hot Fuzz (did I not not tag this properly last time?)
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (seriously, student film bad)
Waitress (super glad I brought my ipod)
My gf and her folks love the Mighty Boosh. They watch it all the time; it's hilarious!
My housemates and I HATED Marie Antoinette. It was like one big music video screensaver to us.
Yeah, I don't really know what's up with her stuff.
Like my taste isn't that different from most people, but even with Virgin Suicides, I've kinda felt like I'm watching another film.
I think it has do with my preoccupation with tone, nuance, yadda yadda.
I support Sophia Coppalla because there aren't that many female directors out there but....I often wonder if she would be even making films if she wasn't the daughter of a much much better director than she can ever hope to be. Have you read 'Virgin Suicides'? The book is f-ing brilliant and you realise how the movie doesn't even begin to represent its darkness. Well, that's just my opinion.
No, she probably wouldn't. We can't all come from the streets.
I should say that I've never enjoyed watching any of her dad's stuff after many tries. I certainly respect him, but I've come to feel like I'm from Mars when it comes to this family.
Yeah, I haven't read the book, but I would say the film is reasonably dark.
Goblet of Fire isn't that bad.
There are great design elements. Student life is shown more realistically than ever (the first Harry Potter movie directed by a British director, one who knows what British boarding school is like). There's a lot of things that I really like.
I do have to admit that it's overwhelmingly fast-paced.
And, yeah, Order of the Phoenix really puts it to shame, but I still wouldn't call it bad.
