A lot of it in general was trolling. Things like the little shit Eugene talking about how he "gets chased by n****ers in LA," that was not trolling. Darby using the term "wet back," that was trolling. At least, according to the Lexicon Devil book about the Germs. Darby claimed he said stuff like that occasionally not because he was racist, but only because it offended people. 9 times out of 10 when you see a punk wearing a swastika, it wasn't because they believed in nazism. It was because they got their kicks seeing "old people" get offended and freak out. Exactly. I had regularly recurring sexual fantasies about my 7th grade teacher. She was at least 26. She might have been as old as 30, I never knew her age. I'd say her attractiveness rating would be about on par with Spacey in those old photos Cookie LA posted. She wasn't particularly attractive, no one in their right mind would have described her as "hot," but I wanted her to use me as her own personal sex toy and I would have been over the moon if she'd ever actually tried to put any moves on me. I was ready and willing and raring to go at that age. And she wasn't the only older woman I knew personally and fantasized about. She was great in terms of being a snarky abrasive creep you couldn't wait to see dead at the end. A little disappointing, but she'll get hers in the next one. <blockquote>Also.... The Element of Crime.</blockquote> Oh my god, thank you. I've been going crazy trying to remember the title of that movie, the director, who starred in it... I recently re-watched Paris, Texas for the first time in 25 years and for some reason it reminded of it, I must have originally seen them both around the same time. I kept thinking they were both Wim Wenders. It was bugging me for weeks and I'd given up, thank you... Personally I loved it, which I attribute to my ability to ignore weak/cliche stories as long as the eye candy is worth looking at. (i.e. I have no problem enjoying stuff like Tron Legacy, Prometheus, etc.) This movie delivers visually to the point where that's more than enough. The story isn't bad or weak, really. It's just very simple and nothing new. I don't recall ever seeing it, but I checked to see if Shelley Long ever did a teen sex farce in the early 80s, and she did one called Losin' It in 1983. Sure enough, Cruise was in it. The crabs/pool scene is definitely from Last American Virgin, though. That'd be hilarious if another movie ripped it off a year later. <blockquote>If the writer and director happens to read your post, they'll be very happy. Anytime a story or scene can have such an impact is a major victory for the writer or director.</blockquote> Somewhere I heard/read that the story is very much autobiographical on the part of the writer/director himself, so if that's true I imagine his reaction would be "You think it was cruel to show it in a movie? Consider how cruel it was to actually be the kid driving the car." "We don't have the book to refer to when watching the movie. A movie must stand on its own." I wasn't a huge fan of the movie myself, I thought many shots of nothing happening just went on far too long. Literally a waste of time. But piss off with these "laws" you think movies have to obey just to please you, or any other viewer. A movie or a book or a song or any other creative work can be precisely as vague and ambiguous as its creator chooses. Yes it is hilarious that the people who wrote the book Colossus and made the movie The Forbin Project were ignorant of Moore's Law. Ha ha ha ha. Eric Braeden told a story in an interview, about working on Titanic. At the end of Braeden's scene, after saying "cut," James Cameron said, "Never!" Braeden thought it was a bizarre non-sequitur and assumed it was Cameron's odd way of saying he blew the scene. He was about to get pissed off, but the look on his face must have indicated that he was a little confused." Cameron said, "The last line in Colossus." And then Braeden got that he was being complimented. Best part of the story is that it confirms the obvious assumption that Cameron was well familiar with this movie before he came up with the Skynet concept. (For all I know he's been very open about it, no idea) View all replies >
