If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Scrump reminded us that during our Kubrick special we were going to do other director episodes.... and we didn't. Well with Prometheus set to blow our minds in a few months we thought what a perfect time to talk about Sir Ridley Scott. A director who has dipped his finger in numerous genres. From the female empowerment of Thelma & Louise to the sublime Blade Runner, he has almost done it all.
So send us your questions.
Okay, you know this question has to be asked.... Who's films overall do you enjoy going back to watch more? Big brother Ridley, or little brother Tony?
Don't count Tony out so easily. Yes, he's made some cornball flicks, but so has Ridley, and I think Tony has AMAZING style in his films, and like his big brother, when he's on, makes films that leave a long lasting impression. (True Romance, Crimson Tide, Days of Thunder, The Last Boyscout, & I can still enjoy Top Gun as well) I'm only naming some of Tony's films as I'm sure by this point in the Pod Cast Ridley's have all been gone over.
So let's say HBO is showing a Ridley festival on one channel and a Tony festival on another, honestly, which channel are you going to watch more?
Oh, and I'm sure you already talked about it, but talk about Legend more...... Just do it you fuckers... I love that friggin flick.. :-)
Love the music:
Love the Dialog:
Love the whole friggin thing.. :-)
See? All this "Legend" talk got me wondering if there was a Blu-Ray release yet, as I already have the special edition DVD that came out in 2002.
Turns out there is:
But since Amazon has such shitty descriptions now days of the content on the discs they sell, and most of the reviews underneath are all in reference to the DVD release, and not the Blu-Ray, it got me wondering if the upgrade was worth it. So here's the review of the disc from www.thedigitalbits.com (Great fucking site by the way)
Blu-ray Disc review by Tim Salmons of The Digital Bits
To his credit, Scott has always been a director eager to tackle different genres and put his own personal stamp on them. In the case of Legend, he was interested in making a classic Brothers Grimm type fairy tale.
Ya.... I ordered it... ;-)
Now I just need to exercise some more commerce and buy a better camera so all my pictures don't look that blurry and shitty. :-)
Just watched the Theatrical Cut on Blu-Ray. Haven't watched this movie in years. I forgot how much I love the Dwarfs. Some of my favorite lines that still crack me up:
"She was still alive when they killed me."
"I'm not as old as I used to be, ya know?"
"Terrible site for a sober man."
Love this flick. :-)
Considering that Scott, one of the great visual directors of our time, started his career doing TV ads, don't you think it's rather silly that people like Bill Hicks call people who do advertisements non-artists?
Good question.... See Scrump? C is showing you up... :-)
Hey, I'm contributing to the thread!!
Just... no questions...
