infinite zest - 2015-08-04 So it's Snowpiercer but with John Voight? I'm sold!!!!! Speaking of overlooked holiday pictures starring John Vogiht I recently watched Convict Cowboy and it was pretty good! I'm not sure if it was a sequel to Midnight Cowboy or not but it's got hollywood hotstuff Kyle Chaldner and if you're into horse=
chumbucket - 2015-08-05 Yeah I wouldn't stoop it to Snowpiercer levels, but it is a great film.
Old_Zircon - 2015-08-05 I haven't seen Snowpeircer yet but I've seen enough to know that the art direction and cinematography in Runaway Train is way better.
chumbucket - 2015-08-05 For me, Snowpiercer ended up just a big disappointment, which is probably an unfair personal emotional bias against it. The cast, story and early action in the film had me hoping it was going to punch through the typical sci-fi-pocalypse genre. In the end, it just didn't do much for me at all. Maybe I need to give it another watch, but overall it felt poorly paced and predictable.
Old_Zircon - 2015-08-05 It didn't look interesting to me but the Red Letter Media guys seem to like it so I'll give it a shot at some point.
Lurchi - 2015-08-05 Ebert is 100% correct here, this movie is perfection. Super homo-erotic too. Konchalovsky went on to direct Tango and Cash.
Old_Zircon - 2015-08-05 I didn't catch that he did Tango and Cash!
Siskel is kind of right about the dispatch office scenes not being up to the same level but I don't mind that much. I'd still put this movie in the same class as Serpico and The French Connection.
