8MM is one creepy film, but I guess that was the point.

8mm 2 has no connection at all to 8mm. When 8mm found success they stamped "8mm 2" on a project they has already completed that had to do with a sex tape. Fair warning.

I dildn't really know too much about Jodorowsky, not seeing any of his insane cult movies, but this guy is nuts (in a good way) and I could watch him talk about movies for hours. Highly recommend. His version of Dune influenced so many movies (star wars, alien, indy jones, matrix, etc) to follow, just an amazing story.


Did you ever read Jodorowsky's and Moebius' (Jean Giraud) comic John Difool? Classic stuff.

I did not, but after watching this, I started digging around and found "The Incal: classic collection" (which I think consists of Difool?) and "The Metabarons: Ultimate Collection". I just need to actually get them now, they look great and have a lot pulled from his Dune story.

The Incal is the good stuff, yes. I've never read The Metabarons and only heard things about it, actually. But who knows, might be worth checking out, too. I'd suggest checking out other Moebius stuff instead, though.

'Alan Smithee' is actually the Directors Guild of America pseudonym for films with which a director felt they did not have sufficient creative control. It hasn't been used for a while now, and you had do demonstrate to a DGA panel that studio or other external influence was so great that you actually did not 'direct' the film.

I don't know that it's so much that it 'influenced' so many other films, as much as it was that there were so many insanely talented designers working on that project who then went on to work on those other films. It's not like Chris Foss' work with Jodorworsky influenced Chris Foss' work on 'Alien'; it was the same guy doing broadly the same stuff. I will concede that Jodoworsky's Dune was critically important for the film 'Alien', because it put O'Bannon in contact with Giger. Then again, maybe I'm not giving it its due.

However, if you look at the design work for 'Prometheus', there are some overt references to Giger's work with Jodorwosky.

Probably the biggest example, here's a side-by-side image that shows the Engineer 'temple' from Prometheus next to Giger's design for Harkonnen's Castle for Dune:

Giger's original temple design for Alien (for a different storyline than it was used for in Prometheus) was roughly similar in profile, but it looked so much like a boob that I'm not comfortable posting an image on the board. :wink:

Anyone else seen Diggstown? I remember watching this movie all the time in my teen years. It's a really good boxing movie with Lou Gosset Jr. and James Woods.

I keep seeing it praised as being "smart", but the political stuff was just so heavy handed. Plus I'm pretty sure Tilda Swinton's character couldn't possibly exist outside of a cartoon.

I enjoyed Stoker, for what it is.

watched winters tale last night. There is a cool story in there somewhere (I will seek out the novel), but man, what a mess of a movie. Akiva Goldsmith is either really well liked or he called in some favors for this one. When Will Smith shows up, I just said f*** it. I'm very scared with the Dark Tower in this guys hands.

I saw Believer with Ryan Gossling. It's from 2003 iirc and it's about a neo-nazi Jew. It had an American History X feel but it's not the same kind of movie. Very dark (obviously) and a very interesting look at the Jewish culture in America. I grew up in that culture and agree with a lot of what both sides had to say about it. Don't start labeling me as an anti-semite before you watch the movie. Hopefully that statement makes more sense afterward. There isn't a whole lot of violence in the movie. Thankfully they focused more on the internal struggle of the main character more than his actions.

Gossling has some acting chops. He did a really great job with the character.

Watched The Way Way Back, very enjoyable coming of age story. Sam Rockwell is hilarious in that movie. Steve Carell does an excellent job playing an a-hole.
