Movie Stars You Remember

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-10-10

This looks fucking fantastic. I am genuinely excited over this.

Clooney's hairstyle finally pays off.

John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-10-10

I've always wanted someone to make a behind-the-scenes surreal Cohen Bros style movie about the making of Kolberg


duck&cover - 2015-10-16

From what I've read, that movie helped win the war for the Allies.

Are the Cohen Brothers still as good as they used to be? I haven't bothered to check out anything they've done since O Brother Where Art Thou (which was decent as a movie but a big disappointment as a Cohen Brothers movie and the first hing they did that I had absolutely no desire to see a second time).

Inside Llewllyn Davis is probably the best thing they've done in a long time, but I think all their stuff is great for the most part. (No Country For Old men and Burn After Reading strike me as must-sees if you seriously haven't seen any of their stuff after O Brother)

I really liked Inside Llewyn Davis.

memedumpster - 2015-10-10

Their remake of True Grit would not have passed a community college film credit. Completely failed as filmmaking. All medium shots, all blue filter, inconsistent characters, complete waste of actors, none of anything that made the novella (a comedy) or the original movie (a comedy) fantastic, like jokes, establishing shots, panning, sound editing, a point for its existence.

Worst remake ever by people I respect.

See my comment above. It doesn't look bad but it's clearly another hollywood metaphor movie, which Birdman last year kinda nailed into the ground. The Coen Brothers' Barton Fink was one of the earliest examples I can think of that did the "live and die in LA" thing, so sure! Do it again with more money. But I was reminded of O Brother when I watched this, which was a clever Campbellian take on Homer's poem The Odyssey (I'm sure y'all know this) and just came off as a nostalgic piece of "pretty good movie, funny cameos and I wonder if John Goodman's going to show up wait there he is.."

After O Brother I kind of stopped caring. The Ladykillers remake was dumb and unnecessary and Burn After Reading was just dumb, and I didn't even bother with the Bob Dylan one. True Grit was also pretty dumb because it wasn't done any differently from the original, but No Country for Old Men was surprisingly good, better than the book even. I think that one was in the middle of those three. So I dunno, I'll definitely see this but I'm not expecting Miller's Crossing or anything.

True Grit the remake was fucking great. I loved every minute of it. It was way better than The King's Speech, which was a snoozefest. But A Serious Man was brilliance on a level you rarely see in film, and I think that one will be hard to beat. I would definitely describe it as an absolute masterpiece of filmmaking.

Usually it's every other Cohen movie that's worth seeing.

Anaxagoras - 2015-10-10

How can you not like Dapper Dan and the Soggy Bottom Boys?

cognitivedissonance - 2015-10-10

The Man Who Wasn't There is potentially my #3 runner for Greatest Noir Ever Made (after Double Indemnity and Chinatown).

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-10-10

The Man Who Wasn't There was filmed where I live. It's a fucking brilliant movie as well. I love spotting the various locations in that film I've been to or walk past frequently. (fun fact, the furniture store is downtown and the parking lot outside it was filmed at a separate location)

So far my favorite Coen brothers films are as follows

1. Barton Fink
2. A Serious Man
3. The Man Who Wasn't There
4. True Grit
5. Fargo

I don't really care that much about No Country for Old Men but it did somewhat scare the crap out of me. It's unnerving like few films are.

Anyone who hasn't seen Barton Fink needs to, John Goodman and John Turturro are basically representing Germany and Jews to the backdrop of Hollywood right as WWII erupts and it's one of the most bizarrely wonderful things you'll ever watch.

infinite zest - 2015-10-10

Oh yeah forgot about Man Who Wasn't There! Hudsucker Proxy's really good too. I was going to write out my own list but realized there's too many good movies, with only a few duds, which by today's standards are still genius.

I might need to revisit True Grit. I have bad memories of that movie because I was on an acid trip after a date that didn't go so well, and ran into my friends., we sat alone up in the balcony and ate red licorice. I mostly remember having the themesong to StarMan in my head the whole time and very little about the movie.

HarrietTubmanPI - 2015-10-10

Don't forget Raising Arizona.

Hooker - 2015-10-10

I can see why you might quit after O Brother, as the next two were Intollerable Cruelty and The Ladykillers, but they did rebound pretty strongly after that. Burn After Reading, in particular, is terrific.

Inside Llewllyn Davis was a complete fantasy. Good review of it here by wife of Dave Van Ronk, Terri Thal:

http://www.villagevoice.com/music/dave-van-ronks-ex-wife-takes -us-inside-inside-llewyn-davis-6650942

I think their last great film was True Grit, which was a true depiction of the novel, unlike the John Wayne version.

Hooker - 2015-10-12

So... their last great film was their second-to-last?

hammsangwich - 2015-10-12

No Country for Old Men was amazing. I don't even know why I liked it so much. I saw it twice in theaters and then never again. I don't think I could watch it on my TV. It was creepy as fuck and great on the big screen.

GQ, you beat me to it.

I will watch any movie with Tilda Swinton in it.
