"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Beauty vs Beast: School's Out Forever

Jason fromMNPPhere with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"-- tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of Wes Anderson's filmRushmore,and so you celebrate the battle between Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) and Herman Blume (Bill Murray) we shall.This was Anderson's second film (afterBottle Rocket) and an instant cult hit - it only made 17 million dollars in theaters (itranked 97that the box office,betweenThe Big Lebowskiand54) but I was in college at the time and believe you me,us youngins loved it right out of the gate.

Now it's rightly heralded as a classic - you're not going to hear an unkind word from me on the hermetically crafted direction that Wes started taking his film-making after this (Moonrise Kingdomis my favorite of all his films,after all) butRushmoredoes feel airy in a way that he's moved far far away from (especially with the to the millimeter specificity of his animated efforts) and it might be nice to see him sample some of this looseness again?

PREVIOUSLYI'm real glad that Judith O'Dea got to beat back the zombie horde this one time withlast week'sNight of the Living Deadanniversary edition- poor Barbra has had enough to deal with.SaidNick T:

"Without getting into details,I'd say this answer was a NO BRAINER!!!Hyuk hyuk hyuk"

Beauty vs Beast: She's Got the Brainnnsssssss

Jason fromMNPPhere for another round of "Beauty vs Beast"and on a very special day at that - not only is today the first day of October,marking my favorite season of the year (the spookey season) but today is also the 50th anniversary of George A Romero's masterpieceNight of the Living Dead!There were "zombies"of a sort beforeNotLDcame out - mostly folks put under "voodoo curses"or the like - but Romero refined the monster to its modern form and created billions upon billions of dollars for entertainment executives in the process.But nothing's gonna top the stark simplicity of that original 1968 nightmare.

Facing down the horde I was torn between choosing our hero Ben (the magnificent Duane Jones) or his leading (comatose) lady Barbra (Judith O'Dea) - I went with the latter because Barbra gets a bad rap if you ask me.Ben is the hero we'd like to be - Barbra is the we we're probably gonna be.People don't like to want to think we'd go into total shock in an apocalyptic situation but you know what?Watch your sibling get eaten by a strange man in a cemetery and get back to me.

PREVIOUSLYAnd speaking of siblings (and now I'm picturing a zombie rampage at the March house)last week'sLittle Womenoffbrought the expected results,because Amy's awful,that little book burning witch,we hate her.Jo with 80-plus percent,huzzah!Saidchasm301:

"Evil finds a human form in Amy March.Only Kiki stans are voting for her.But wow I love everything about this movie.I watch it multiple times a year.Winona is perfection and the score is one of my faves."
