The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. Bloody hell, I forgot we'd done Sky Captain for Pulp Diction! NB) We're also not doing Sky Captain
  2. Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 82, our subject will be Angelina Jolie. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review by Friday 25 June so get your ideas in before then!  NB) We won't be covering Girl, Interrupted or Wanted.
  3. Blade Runner. Both films offer fascinating insights into humanity from a sci-fi POV. But Blade Runner has a plot and characters to drive along the story, with a career-defining performance from Rutger Hauer. 2001 is just the wrong side of pretentious, although everything I said above rings true for it - I use it as a gateway on my Flickchart. If a film is very good to me, but has no ambition, subtext or something else that makes it stand out, it cannot surpass 2001.
  4. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vs The Sound of Music
  5. I'm refusing to get *too* carried away by the news as the smart money is on him signing a part time deal with WWE for huge money as he plays out the autumnal years of his career. The sliver of hope I do hold is that the wrestler in him is itching to have some dream matches outside of WWE before he retires, which doesn't neccessarily means he signs for New Japan or AEW, but has some kind of farewell indie tour.
  6. I'll debrief you next time we talk. And it's Flickchart Forums, you heathen - do not blaspheme against my religion....
  7. Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 81, our subject will be Laurence Fishburne. Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review by Saturday 1 May so get your ideas in before then!  NB) We won't be covering The Matrix, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice or Ant-Man and The Wasp.
  8. Ramis: No. Hudson: Borderline.
  9. I've said before - in the Nolan Flickchart Forum if memory serves, so you were there - that 2001 is pretentious wank. And whilst I stand by that, it is also a hugely layered film and I can see why it's so influential and revered. The lack of dialogue helps & hinders it, but it's the ending that gets my goat over everything else. But I'd give it props for quality, soul, or legacy. Wizard of Oz, well, the podcast will be edited later this week. Don't get me wrong; I don't slate it, but I was less impressed with this most recent viewing.
  10. 2001: A Space Odyssey vs The Wizard of Oz
  11. I was on BITD's call-in episode, and spoke with Derrick separately on Skype one other time. A very erudite, knowledgable man. RIP
  12. Deffo eligible - it'd take us up to 4 cast members certainly.
  13. I think the closest we get is Ghostbusters, as we've had episodes on Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. Oh, no, I'm wrong - Nolan Bat films. Begins: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Rutger Hauer. TDK: Same, but substitute Hauer for Heath Ledger. Then again, HAA was never going to cover either film due to The Dark Knight Discussions series, so probably still Ghostbusters.
  14. So there's this urban legend about Richard Gere involving a gerbil. Also, 'The Death Camp of Tolerance' is a South Park episode. Mutually exclusive, but when combined, it forms the basis of what we were going for.
