Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|03.23.06||Terror Thursday|| It's now officially a major pain to stop playing Oblivion long enough to see a movie. Serious clash of the geek-outs happening in my apartment... the video game nerd in me keeps saying to forget about the outside world and just play a few more minutes while the movie geek in me urges with the incessant thought: "but it's STREET TRASH!" so the movie geek won... tonight.|
I liked it. I loved the use of shocking blue and orange mixed with the blood and gunk whenever a guy melts or blows up or bleeds out of her nipples or anything like that. Nice unnatural splashes of color thrown in there... this movie has some great gore for sure... I think if the 80s horror is known for anything it's some over the top awesome gore.
I also liked the 'nam crazy dude seeing a plane in the sky and yelling "air support!!!" to no one in particular. good movie.
Tim's intro mentioned that the director is now a very successful steadicam operator even though he only directed this one gem of cinema. Knowing that going in, it's painfully apparent that even with the freedom to do whatever he wants, he really really loves his steadicam. I think there were maybe a half dozen shots in this film that weren't steadicam.
still though, the video game nerd in me kept gnawing at the back of my brain. having to look for parking, the 9:45 Open Screen night going long, people around me talking during the previews... i could've been home alone sitting in the dark playing Oblivion. It actually put me in kind of a bad mood to have to go out. Signs like this usually means that i have a problem, as in I'm addicted. Well I totally am. I'm thinking I might give in to a week-long bender and hope that I don't OD. So don't expect too many updates this week... ok back to the game.
