"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"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: Love Among the Dino Droppings

Jason fromMNPPhere - before I sawCall Me By Your Namein theaters 18 times this past winter the movie that held my personal record of "seen the most times seen in the theater"wasJurassic Park,which I saw in the theater 15 times in 1993.Meaning I can place where I was exactly 25 years ago today,since today's the 25th anniversary.I can also place where I was tomorrow 25 years ago,and the day after that 25 years ago,and the day after that 25 years ago...I saw it every single night for a straight week.It was myStar Wars.

Every progressive sequel's dulled the impact a bit more but that first movie,man I can still feel the tingle up my spine the first time the camera panned up that brachiosaurus and John Williams' music swelled and Spielberg cut to the distant dinos bathing themselves in the sparkling sunlight...it was like the four walls of the house my imagination lived inside of were kicked down all at once.Utter movie magic.Every kid that ever smashed their little dino figures together felt it.And yet the human characters kick ass too.With actors like this around...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sInterview with the Vampireracestayed tight and vacillated often but it was Tom Cruise's Lestat who crawled out of the swamp and unto victory over Brad Pitt's Louis at the end.SaidJaragon:

"Lestat is a lot more fun and he gets the last bite."

Beauty vs Beast: Queens of the Night

Happy Tuesday,Jason fromMNPPhere with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"fun - the year of movies in focus for June is the year 1994 thanks to the Smackdown (Nat justintroduced you to the panelists) and so I'm going to take you back to a movie of 1994 for this week's poll...namely Neil Jordan'sInterview With the Vampire,which starred Tom Cruise as Lestat and Brad Pitt as his blood heir Louis locked in a battle of diabolical foppery from the story by Anne Rice.

Handily this is also a film that works thematically for Gay Pride Month too,although lord knows it should've been far,far gayer - no doubt the forthcoming TV series rights that wrong.But whose side will you take today?The unrepentant and giddy evildoer,or the sad romantic that looks like Brad Pitt in 1994?As Lestat says,"Don't be afraid,I'm going to give you the choice I never had..."

PREVIOUSLYMost of expressed feeling bad that you were voting against Christina Ricci inourOpposite of Sexpoll from two weeks backbut that sure didn't stop you - Lisa Kudrow's Lucia trounced her with almost 80% of the vote.SaidJames From Ames:

"Have to give it to Lucia.They've both overbearing as hell,but at least Lucia's comes from a messed-up sense of protectiveness,right?One of my favorite movies of all time,and Ricci's best performance in my opinion.I don't remember when exactly I first saw it -- but I never was the same again after that summer."

Throwback Fun: Favorites of 1994?

Tuesday's revisit to the essential and apparently sorely underseenQueen Margot(1994) and the comments thereafter had me thinking about favorite films from 1994.This website wasn't around back then of course (I think the internet was just in listserv mode at that point?) butIwas already making lists.So what would I have nominated had our Film Bitch Awards been around back then?What would you have nominated had you had an Oscar ballot?

The answers (fluid as they are should rewatching ever occur) areafter the jump...

Twins: "Drunk on brandywine...a thimbleful!"

While we're in Gemini,twins!Daily @ 2:22 pm

Don't be angry with me.When I saw them I knew they were for you.Drunk on brandywine...a thimbleful."

Kirsten Dunst is so thoughtful of her co-stars.She gave Vampire Tom Cruise little boy twins to drink as an apologia for stealing his 1994 would be franchiseInterview with the Vampireright out from under his blue veined intensity.

What a gift.Lestat (Tom) tells little Claudia (Kiki) that she's outdone herselfbut he doesn't know how right he is...
