What movie would you like to see?
« on: September 04, 2010, 12:04:14 AM »
This is an offshoot of the thread about what movie have you seen.
I have never seen the Russian 3 hour (or more, depending on the version) War and Peace by Sergei Bodnarchuk  but will try to find it on DVD.  There is also a company called Criterion whose DVDs I will start buying.  Mostly film classsics like the Bicycle Thief etc etc

This is an offshoot of the thread about what movie have you seen.

I have searched and searched, but can't find that thread, so I post it here, because this is a movie you will be wanting to see!:

Yesterday at Bergen International Film Festival I saw a fantastic historic movie: 12 Meter ohne Kopf / 12 paces Without A Head. (From 2009) It's a lavish German movie about the 14/15th century pirate Klaus Störtebeker, the scourge of the Hanseatic League both in the North Sea and the Baltic. Ok, nobody knows much about the historical Störtebeker, of whom there are lots of legends, so there is little problem with the accuracy of the actual events, but the environment is so extremely well re-created, both all the dirt on land, in a medieval village, and in a sailing ship out on sea. (The only inaccuracy I could spot was that they were cooking a salmon and not a more typical salt water fish!) And the human drama is also extremely good: Love, death, friendship, loyalty, confidence, fate - all the big epic conflicts. The actors do a superb job and there is also a lot of enjoyable slap-stick comedy. Of course the film would have been perfect (but hard to understand) in Low German, but it's in High German with English subtitles.

Only the Hanseatic League figures in the movie, but because the pirates of Störtebeker's kind were engaged as maritime mercenaries in the huge political conflicts between the Hanseatic League, Queen Margrethe of Kalmar Union fame and her rival Albrecht of Mecklenburg, it also gives life and blood to this fascinating chapter of North European history, which is rather unknown in the English-speaking world. (Because England's historical and histographical focus has been almost exclusively on both sides of the Channel and not on both sides of the North Sea.)

I saw the new zombie movie Resident Evil - Afterlife, the fourth film in the video game inspired franchise and the first in 3D. last week in Sydney. This one sees Milla Jovovich turn up again as Alice and Chris - Prison Break''s
Wentworth Miller. Jovovich is highlly athletic but dreadfully wooden, but I miss Sigourney Weaver. Score 2/5  ;)

I think I would like to see Barbarella in a cinema again.  Jane Fonda at her best.

Salň – The 120 Days of Sodom.   

It is very rare to find now days and there is bootleg copies of it.    Mainly because it is a "graphic" movie based on 120 days of Sodom by Marquis de Sade.


Oh and I would love to see The Runaways with Kirsten Stewart and Dakota Fanning.   I'm not interested because of who stars in it, but the story seems very interesting of teen girls in a band and what they had to cope with to make in the industry.   Plus the music is awesome and I'm listening to it right now on my iPod.   PS Sandy West greatest Drummer EVER!
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

I just got the DVD of Grownups.  I liked it.  Of course, I'm a big Adam Sandler fan.

I think there is a big group of people who like people like Jum Carey and Adam Sandler but I am not one of them.

I would love to see Hawaii (1966) with Julie Andrews and Gene Hackman.
