Trust nobody, because Impostor is the Greatest Movie EVER!
(And also the Worst Movie EVER!)
This movie contains:
(Er, I mean “Geneva Convention Sanctioned Interrogation Techniques.”)
Keith David Impersonators.
Big Mutherin’ Explosions.
Listening to and Hollywood talk about the differences between the short film and the theaterical version reminds me of the problems I have with the cut and Uncut versions of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. For me, it was a matter of ignorance being bliss.
I’ve just been dicked.
😦 You didn’t say it 😦
No love for Danny Boyle?
Last time I checked Trainspotting, Sunshine, Millions, and Shallow Grave were all pretty damn solid.
*intentionally left “The Beach” off the above list.
Haven’t seen Trainspotting yet. That’s the kind of film you have to be in the right mood for, if you know what I mean. I hear Sunshine is a film with a serious identity crisis and a central plot more ludicrous than The Core, so I’m not exactly dying to see that one. Given the choice between The Hell of Being Flayed Alive and watching a film like Millions, I think I’d choose the Hell of Being Flayed Alive. Shallow Grave was solid, but a bit overwrought. The Beach wasn’t that bad, although the book was considerably better. And 28 Days Later was poo. How that film managed to garner the critical buzz that it did is a mystery that eludes me to this day.
So from my limited experience with the man, Boyle’s track record ain’t so great. The nicest thing I can say is most of his films do not strike my fancy.
Yes! Paul agrees that 28 Days Later wasn’t that great. The peak of that movie was 10 minutes in when the throw-away character is macheted.
Though Sunshine isn’t perfect (it loses itself in the final half hour), it’s definitely up your alley. Easily the best mainstream sci-fi flick to hit theaters in a while.
And, I’ll argue for Millions till the day I die. You have no heart, Paul! No heart! 😉
I dunno, Ivan. Isn’t Sunshine the only mainstream sci-fi flick that’s been out recently? I can’t think of the last science fiction film I saw in the theater. And no, Resident Evil: Extinction does not count. 😦
I do not have a heart. I have a pointy chunk of black obsidian suffused with the malevolence of Hastur the Unspeakable. Heart-warming dramas make me a grumpy panda.
