Chopper

Post by Rick Cave »

I enjoyed this movie.
Never knew Bana was this good.

The only thing I heard of this movie before was Mick Harvey's score.
I'd just like to hear the Aussie's opinion of it.
Are his books worth reading?
Do you like someone like him being a bestselling author?

I took that while watching it.
Loved that scene.

Loved the movie. David Field is one of my favourite actors.
The real Chopper would be a pain in the arse to be around though. Watch the dvd extras and you'll know what i mean.

Idiot Box is another goodun'.

I would probably advise against reading the books. The speech Chop makes at the end in the TV interview at the end is completely on the mark. He can't write at all. It's one of Melbourne's great little things that pretty much everyone has at least one semi-funny anecdote after running into the guy.

So many great lines in this film. The "No cash" scene is pretty much recanted word for word every time my mates and I play poker/go-to-the-football/do-anything.

Handy tip if you ever come to our sunny shores, Rickuardo. Any time someone is in the news for beating up his significant other, it's known as "upsetting your mother".

Gentleman, I feel a kindred spirit with you all now.
I watched the movie twice. Once in the evening and again the next day.
I liked it that much.

The only film Noise I've seen is the shitbox one with Michael Keaton.
Which one are you talking about, Mick?
There are about 8 movies called Noise.

You guys seen Eric Bana's comedy stuff?
The stuff he did before going into movies?
Any good?

I still look on with affection to spoon who had a visceral debate with me over the genre assignment of Chopper. I still say Black Comedy. Drama ney!

That's what I want to see. Badly.
I love Guinness more than a bog Irish motherless bastard.

I've seen scenes. But that's hardly enough.

The Australian one... Guy on a train pointing a gun? You commented on my facebook to that pic

He's comedy has aged quite a bit...and he always paled in comparison to Micallef

Oh and, great movie - I love Eric Bana.

Chopper seems like a bit of a cock though.
