So they were rerunning all of the star wars movies this past week. And because I hate myself or something I watched attack of the clones and revenge of the sith.

Ian McDiarmid and Ewan McGregor were at least trying. And of course Christopher Lee is always cool. But I sorta wish the movies had just been Palpatine and Obi Wan.

They somehow made Samuel L Jackson with a lightsaber boring. I'm not even sure how you do that but they found a way.

A movie I really like that is overlooked or just not talked about much:

Event Horizon

Lots of people mention the "where we're going we don't need eyes to see" meme. Good part of the movie sure. But my favorite is the scene where Alan Grant/Sam Neill sees his wife. I just love how he's so happy to see her that he doesn't seem to react much to the fact she's obviously god damned dead. And the scene where Cowboy Curtis/Fishburne is crawling through the vents is scary as hell.

The sets were amazing, the idea of a portal to hell being opened in space wasn't an original idea but it was the only media that made it work. Yes, I'm saying Doom's narrative sucks and I'm glad I can say that now.

How Paul W.S. Anderson went from that to...every single other movie before and afterwords is a mystery to me.

I mean, this guys career somehow went from a movie where a critical plot point is translating latin to 'borderline experimental' slow mo cgi dogs. It's all over the damn map.

Quote by Struggler:
I love the movie. It represents a more accurate tale of Dracula. It's beautiful really.


I really don't remember the novel, I think I read it once as a kid. But it might be, yes, more accurate in one sense. I feel like Coppola was going more for (and I think he's even admitted this) the idea of Dracula as sort of a creature preying or utilizing or embodying the concept of desire and the id. And there have been several interpretations of that novel predicated on that. There's also a little more of a gothic romance element to the gothic horror in it.

And I don't...really know if that had quite been seized on before that adaptation? I mean, it's been adapted so many times. But that's what I remember as the prominent take focusing on that aspect. The hammer films didn't really focus on it, nosferatu was more like the mythological concept of a vampire being a risen ghoul type thing, and it was like unauthorized so it was 'count orlok', the Lugosi one didn't reeeeally touch on that.
