I'd been looking for this for a while but it wasn't under the foreign section at the video place - it was under independent. I found it while looking for something else in the indie section and recognized the cover shot. There were times where the dialogue made me scratch my head, but that could hav...

Charlotte Sometimes

Anyone else seen this? It was on AZN a few months ago.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0284478/

Its story was a little thin but it's worth a watch for those who like subtle dramas, which is likely most of you.

It's occurred to me...

...that maybe I've seen this movie too much when I'm sitting at work and singing/reciting the sound effects from the arcade scene verbatim in my head.

:?

Both. You can select the audio and subtitle tracks just like any other DVD.

Japanese DVD and Soundtrack

My girlfriend gave me both of these for my birthday yesterday. I know it's been brought up in other threads how vastly superior they are as compared to the US versions, but I don't recall seeing any images or details. I haven't had a whole lot of time to go through them yet but here's a quick run do...

There were people in the theater when I went, but I went there alone. It really wasn't until I watched it after buying the DVD though that the full effect of the movie really hit...that viewing was alone too, as were the 10 or so after that in the week that followed. I've watched it a couple times w...

Anniversary Simul-View

So we haven't done one of these in a long time, and of course we no longer have the chat function anyway. But how about we try and make it a yearly thing to do a simul-view on the release date of the movie, October 3 (or the closest weekend to it). Bob could send out an email to all the users remind...

Other than the blinking lights and a little bit of movement on the street in one of the corners it's pretty stationary so I don't know how well that would work as a 'screen saver'.

That said, I think it's a really good idea and I'd use it. :)

in that david lynch way. anyway, highly recommended. It was Darren Aronofsky (pi, Requiem for a Dream) that wrote/directed, not David Lynch.

Mark Willms

aka the 'Woohoo Guy' I really like his rendition of So Into You, for obvious reasons, so I wanted to see if there was an actual full recording of it somewhere. A google search of his name brought up his website: markwillms.com. So I wrote him an email asking him if he perhaps had it on one of his al...

Bittersweet is always the word I use to describe it. The ending is sad...take your pick of reasons: friendship ending, saying goodbye, going back to their spouses/lives - whatever. But the last individual shots we see of Bob and Charlotte, they're both smiling, if only slightly. So you're sad for th...
