It's Hollywoodian in spirit.

And yes; duh.

The French film machine is it's own thing. I don't think this particular film got much from Hollywood if anything. Jeunet is an ideas man.

But check out Irma Vep for some good in-jokes on the subject, vis-à-vis French filmmaking and Hollywood influences on popular culture in France.

I just watched The Wild Bunch for the first time.
A young El Guapo is in it.

I also enjoyed the movie.
If I ever shoot a movie there will be slow motion death falling off buildings.

I was going to make a 9/11 joke then, but I didn't. True story.

Almost 7 years later and I still don't find the humor in 9/11.

I don't see why it should be such a sacred cow.

I dont think its sacred. Its just not funny. Starving kids in africa are much funnier, because of the swollen stomachs. They look pregnant.

ROFL!

Sure you do. You wouldn't know much about people if you couldn't see why some people don't find it funny.

That sucked pretty hard. Bjork's acting was terrible.
A few of the songs are good (but I've already heard/own them)
The final song was good and quite shocking though. :lol:

Wholeheartedly agreed. However, Irma Vep has Maggie Cheung squeaking aroung in a bondage outfit.

The Mist - A perfectly crap film ruined by a laughable script which has given it some authentic and undeserved comedy value.

American Gangster - Very enjoyable. How come Washington is only watchable in a negative role, like this and Training Days?
