Brazil

Brazil

I try to see this movie at least once a year, as I grow older Brazil seems to make more and more sense - it is prophetic, and gives a great sense of perspective about the absurdities of our bizarre social norms. Personally, I think this is one of De Niro's most endearing roles...he's so NOT De Niro, but my absolute favorite perormance/character/message in the whole film is Katherine Helmond's (a la Who's The Boss) role as Ms. Ida Lowry. This movie is a classic for sure, and so very very Beep.

  • Pop in this dvd to refresh yourself on the story of Alice In Wonderland, so you will be better prepared for the new Tim Burton movie that's coming out!

  • AWESOME movie. I still love this, simply because David Bowie plays the Goblin King. One of those weird, dark kid's movies that probably scared you more than you wanted to admit. Oh, and Jennifer Connelly's in it too.

Another undervalued show. This one's about a pie maker/detective who as a child finds out he has a mysterious talent of bringing the dead back to life with one touch, but he only has 60 seconds to keep them alive before he has to touch them again. Except he accidentally comes across his childhood love on one of his investigations and can't kill her again... so the lovers can't touch, which makes for an interesting show.

Thats what happened with Carnivale. A classic story, literally, between good and evii set against the backdrop of the Depression and a travelling circus troupe. Just when our hero and antihero (the Antichrist) are about to meet finally in the same town, the show gets cancelled. BAH!!!!! Anyway, the 2 seasons are REALLY worth watching. Check it out.

Such was the case with Terry Gilliam's fantasy film Baron Munchausen. This was a wonderful movie that I enjoyed as a child and still holds up as a spectacular movie today.

He's an eccentric visionary. Some people say he's cursed. With nearly every film, some uncanny occurrance almost brings him to a halt. (Heath Ledger died during the making of his latest film) Lost in La Mancha is a documentary of a Terry Gilliam movie that was shot but we will never see it. Why? It went over budget for many, many reasons and the financiers took possession of it. The fantasy film was based on the story Don Quixote and starred Johnny Depp. This documentary gives a great behind the scenes look at the nightmare of movie production. It also gives you the only sneak peek of what I believe would have been an awesome movie. Unfortunately it will sit in some vault somewhere forever. Sigh.

  • Screenwriters rarely develop a distinctive voice that can be recognized from movie to movie, but the ornate imagination of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) has made him a unique and much-needed cinematic presence... Screenwriters rarely develop a distinctive voice that can be recognized from movie to movie, but the ornate imagination of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) has made him a unique and much-needed cinematic presence. In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a guy decides to have the memories of his ex-girlfriend erased after she's had him erased from her own memory--but midway through the procedure, he changes his mind and struggles to hang on to their experiences together. In other hands, the premise of memory-erasing would become a trashy science-fiction thriller; Kaufman, along with director Michel Gondry, spins this idea into a funny, sad, structurally complex, and simply enthralling love story that juggles morality, identity, and heartbreak with confident skill. The entire cast--Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, and more--give superb performances, carefully pitched so that cleverness never trumps feeling. A great movie. --Bret Fetzer

Watch the French version - it's virtually a silent film anyway - and allow yourself to be immersed into the odd whimsy of this movie. A boy named Champion is raised by his loving grandmother, Madame Souza and grows into a massively-thighed Tour de France competitor. However, during the race, he and a number of other cyclists are kidnapped by thugs and Madame Souza accompanied by her faithful, fat and flatulent dog Bruno chase after them to the metropolis of Belleville. Lost and confused in the city, she meets the mysterious Belleville Triplettes, in their youth a glamourous performing act who now subsist by bomb-fishing for frogs and performing as an odd jazz combo. Madame Souza joins them and soon discovers where Champion is being held and hatches a plan to rescue him. Bewilderingly creative, truly original and fascinating is the world of Les Triplettes de Belleville. See for yourself!

Kids are suppose to be ugly and awkward. Then they blossom. Sorry, I'm still mad at China over that whole thing... Anyway, there are ugly children in this movie. They sing songs. They dance and make pouty sour faces until MARY POPPPPINSSS (Oprah voice) flies into town to sprinkle their lives with magic! This movie is evidence that EVERYONE was high in the 60's.

  • One of the best science-fiction series ever on television, this show was cut too short. The series is MUCH better than the movie, and lots of fun. Kind of like Star Trek, but with more humor.
