[film] newsUnlimited reports on the film of L. Ron Hubbard’s Battlefield Earth. “His conclusion was “the one thing that could dent the armour-plated cause of Scientology is the sound of global derision.” Indeed, the only subliminal voice I could detect came about 10 minutes into this 121-minute film and it seemed to be saying “Leeeaaave thisssss cinemmmaaa nooo””

[film] filmUnlimited on trailers being released on the internet. Mat Snow, former editor of the mature gentleman’s rock monthly Mojo, once explained how he had fully enjoyed Godzilla without ever having seen the film. For the months of build-up beforehand, he had the pleasure of getting excited about the film, imagining the monster and the movie in his head, getting off on the hype. By the time the film actually came out, he had been reliably informed that it stank. So he didn’t go to see it. But he didn’t feel cheated – he had had four months of enjoyable anticipation at no cost.

[films] filmUnlimited reports on the state of the British gangster movie. There lies the key difference between gangster flicks new and old: they used to be fully rounded thrillers which, due to the nature of their setting, would inevitably involve elements of violence and black comedy.

[movies] Interview in the Guardian with Oliver Stone.“There’s a few things I’ve been. Hedonist. Moralist. Conspiracist. Misogynist – which I hate because, God, I love women.” Here’s a list of Mr Stone’s Films. Great stuff — my personal favourite is JFK, by the way. However, I don’t believe in any of the conspiracy theories! Okay?

[movies] BBC News confirms that Speilberg’s next project will be AI — Stanley Kubrick’s unfinished (unstarted?) film about artificial intelligence. I love Kubrick films but Eyes Wide Shut was just awful…. sorry Stanley!! AI has been 30 years in the making… hopefully Speilberg can do justice to Kubrick’s vision — whatever that was.

I also watched Bullitt and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Last Night. Movie trivia: Robert Duvall has a role as a very grumpy looking Taxi Driver in Bullit. It was weird seeing him look so young…
