Just got around to Tarantino's latest film (The Hateful Eight, was damn good but not great) and I'm looking for Scorsese's "Silence". 5 shrooms to the kind sir who can locate it. 2016, Martin Scorsese, "Silence". Thx guys you roll.

My favorite movies of all time:

Waking Life (haven't watched it in a few years but I've watched it so many times and speaks right to my core)
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (especially in my drug fueled days, such a great movie)

Stepbrothers.. my guilty pleasure movie. I think it's one of the greatest comedies of all time, up there with Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin.. don't judge

What are your thoughts about this? I might have something to say, but I'd like to hear your perspective first.

It's not that I don't enjoy the 2nd half of the movie, it's just that for me, it's a little generic and forgettable.  Which are two words that are rarely, if ever, used to describe a Kubrick film.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I love Full Metal Jacket, but I have always been bothered by the second half for several reasons. One, the first half (with Lee Ermey and Vincent D'Onofrio) is so fucking good that the second half seems to fall a little flat in comparison. Two, Kubrick shot the movie in England, and it shows. It really does not look like tropical Indochina. He shipped in a lot of palm trees from Spain, but that doesn't really cut it for me. Three, my Dad is a Vietnam vet. He served in the 101st Airborne Division at Foo Bai and was in the Jag corps at Nha Trang, Da Nang, and Saigon. He doesn't like Full Metal Jacket. He says that, first of all, it doesn't look realistic. That is not what it looked and felt like. Also, FMJ depicts a city battle -- in Hue -- and the Vietnam war was anything but a city war. It was a brutal jungle war.

His favorite Vietnam movie, he says by far, is Apocalypse Now. He says it's realistic, and the surreality of it is very close to the mark. He said the bridge scene at night, towards the end, is a mirror image of situations like that that he saw in country. I am not a veteran, but I happen to agree that AN is the best Vietnam movie, and one of the best war movies ever made.

But FMJ, as you say, is a Kubrick film, and I do like it a lot. I think things would be very different if he shot it on location, in the Philippines or something. He should not have let his fear of flying or being far from home affect the quality of his filmmaking. Not that that would have addressed all of my points. Philosophically and thematically, it's a great movie. But it is deeply flawed.

I watched Malick's The New World yesterday. It's great. The ending is a gut punch.

Oh, don't get me wrong, it's a good and quite possibly great movie. Maybe I exaggerated when I said "way better," but as an artistic piece exploring the ambiguities and surrealism of war, I think TRL is superior. No, SPR is one of the best produced movies I've ever seen, and it's intensely realistic, amazingly so. I think the D-Day storming of Omaha beach is what the veterans appreciate so much -- one of the best war sequences probably ever. But the story is rather conventional and predictable, and I gotta say, those close-ups of the American flag at the end are a real turn-off for me.




I saw the Thin Red Line in the theatre back in '99 and did'nt like it very much.  Ov course i was 14-15 at the time and did not have the comprehension and appreciation ov film that i now possess, so i would doubtless view it in a different light.  SPR was very good.  My favorite war(or anti-war if you'd like) movie remains to be Sam Peckinpah's Cross of Iron(1977), a WWII movie from the German perspective on the Russian front filmed in then-Yugoslavia with porn money.



My extensive favorite movie list would be dominated by the works ov Derek Jarman, Gregg Araki, Emir Kusturica, and Sam Peckinpah.  I also have a heavy bias towards movies from the periods '69-'74 and '85-'95.  If i had to narrow it down to 10 right now, they would probably be:

Caravaggio
The Living End
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
The Last of England
Edward II
El Topo
Totally Fucked Up
Dust Devil
The Wild Bunch
Black Cat, White Cat

Into the Wild is one of my favorite movies, I'm trying to think of more but I guess I don't watch movies often. How I Met Your Mother is a 10/10 TV show though.
