I remember The Ice Storm being good when I was like 14, but I never thought it would be worth rewatching. Maybe I should.

But my stars are for his synopsis of "Murmur of the Heart."

Also since he only lists two movies when he's talking about the "three mega-tradgedies" of cinema, I'm just going to assume that the third one is "The Day the Clown Cried."

Ice Storm's a nice cinematic punch in the gut. For whatever reason I didn't turn out seeing it until well into my mid-20s (I think it came out when I was 15) and I guess I sort of lumped it in there with movies like Wonderboys and Apt Pupil - good literary adaptations of Chabon and King respectively, but that's kind of why I saw them. And who was this guy who wrote the Ice Storm anyway? Oh he wrote Garden State! Whoop-de-fucking-doo. But it's beautiful and would rank it slightly lower than Lust Caution as far as Ang Lee movies are concerned.

(Whoops, Moody's Garden State was different, according to Wikipedia, as Zak Braff wrote the screenplay for that steamer.)

I could listen to Slavoj talking about movies all day. I really recommend the video where he talks about Kung Fu Panda.

I recommend the chapter of "Living In the End Times" where he talks about Kung Fu Panda.

He really likes Kung Fu Panda.

I just read this hilarious book "My Lunches with Orson" in which Orson Welles shit talks dozens of movies and actors in his inimitable fashion.

I was way late to the table with CGI films, unfairly lumping them in with the Shreks and the Toy Stories (that's right, I didn't really like Toy Story, even when I was a kid) so I missed out on some great movies like Up, Wall-E, How to Train Your Dragon, and Kung Fu Panda to name a few until very recently. In fact I only saw KFP because of Zizek. I don't know if my movieboner's as big as his for it, but it was excellent. Now let's cashgrab and make 10 sequels and a musical before it's too late!!

I've got a soft spot for the first Toy Story just because the guy who created it grew up down the street from me s to me he's the older kid down the block who always made really gory setpieces for halloween. I remember one year, maybe 6th grade, his younger brother came to the door with a pencil stuck in his throat, and then Andrew jumped out with an (empty) staple gun an clicked it like he was unloading it into my face. Experiences like that give Toy Story a different spin for me than I think most people have. I never saw the sequels.

In case you don't think motherfucker gets paid by the verbal pound, he makes 'film' a two-syllable word.

Oh OF COURSE he loves the commentary more than the movies themselves most of the time. How can he be everything shit about humanities theory 93% of the time, and just interesting enough to not be fully dismissible? Maddening.

oh I would love to hear your take on humanties theory and cultural criticism...
