    This thing is heavily rigged.

  2. Ivan says:

    Hahahaha… the best indie movie of the summer finished last! It makes you wonder what is the point, doesn’t it?

  3. JKill says:

    Okay so the question is:

    How many times did Steven Kaye vote for MIDNIGHT IN PARIS? And is there an anti-SK faction voting against it?

    The plot thickens…

    Are there actually enough posters here who have seen all these films to make the poll meaningful? Or are people just ranking the titles even if they haven’t seen all of them?

    the question should be how much would you pay to see all these movies … my guess is 25 bucks. thats like 2 bucks a movie. amazing deal. hollywood get to it and lower the prices.

    the movie studios should buy full page ads in newspapers – watch the tree of life for 2 bucks!!!! – 2 weeks only. huge lineups and every screen would be full .. sure they don’t make that much money but people to get see small indie films …some with big huge megastars like that Brad Pitt .

    they should try 2 bucks for the last twilight movie – even people who totally hate twilight will go and then
    some of those people will buy the twilight dvds ..
    Kristen and Rob don’t need the money.

“Well, actually, of that whole group that I call the post-60s anti-authority auteurs, a lot of them came from television. Peckinpah’s the only one whose television work represents his feature work. I mean, like the only one. Mark Rydell can direct a really good episode of ‘Gunsmoke’ and Michael Ritchie can direct a really good episode of ‘The Big Valley,’ but they don’t necessarily look like The Candidate. But Peckinpah’s stuff, even the scripts he wrote that he didn’t even direct, have a Peckinpah feel – the way I think there’s a Corbucci West – suggest a Peckinpah West. That even in his random episodes that he wrote for ‘Gunsmoke’ – it’s right there.”
~ Quentin Tarantino

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.
