Hey my 1000 post



Yay!


On the subject of Scorsese, I was so thrilled when I watched Hugo at the cinema recently. I'm a massive Georges Méliès fan and have seen as much of his work as my little fingers can search for on YouTube. I cried (I'm not ashamed to say) a few times throughout the film and all in all found it to be a truly "magical" experience. I had never watched a film in 3D at the cinema before and I'm glad it was a positive experience to start with (I had opted for Tintin in 2D previously). Scorsese (IMO) hasn't disappointed.

I'd recommend reading "Conversations With Scorsese" by Richard Schickel; a really interesting conversation with the man himself and all of his intimate thoughts about each of his movies. What a brilliant director.


I absolutely 100% agree with you there, his passion for film inspires me, it really does. There's a four hour documentary that he did about American cinema, I really do want to track it down someday, I've only seen segments on Youtube



Here it is, I rewatch it every 12 months or so, such a great doc. His recent film on Elia Kazan was great too.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Personal-Journey-Scorsese-Through-American/dp/B00004TBTF/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325197513&sr=8-1

Funnily enough I was bought Conversations With Scorsese for Xmas, it's a great book, very readable and nice and up to date.

I want to see Hugo soooooooooo bad It doesn't come out in Aus until January 12th apparently which depresses me to no end. And I agree, I'm yet to see a 3D film at the cinema but I'm definitely keen on seeing Hugo or Tintin in 3D. He hasn't disappointed me yet either, some people hate his last few (minus Hugo), but I adore The Departed and I liked Shutter Island. My favourite is still probably Goodfellas which I watched for the first time at the ripe old age of 9

Cheers and oh nice, I didn't know he made a doco on Kazan, I'll get onto that too. And also Conversations as well Let's be honest, it doesn't matter if it's a book or a movie, if it has something to do with Scorsese I'm there

Well, it's something to look forward to then. Definitely worth seeing Hugo in 3D IMO. I preferred to see Tintin in 2D which was equally as ace as viewing Hugo in 3D but different strokes for different folks and all. The effects in Tintin film are just awesome.

But but but I want it now *stomps up and down like a kid* But that's true I spose, I can count it as a 2012 movie in my Best Of 2012 list I spose and that's fair enough, I could take it in either dimension to be honest as long as I get to bloody see it And so I've heard, I was going to see TT the other day but didn't get the chance

There's a few New Years resolutions for you to keep then. Happy watching!

It goes on the list with watching the fourth season of Breaking Bad and Mad Men, the second season of Boardwalk Empire and watching silent movies for my 20's list and cheers

Fair play to Marty for acceptance to the Fellowship of BAFTA last night, well deserved.

Just stumbled across this behind-the-scenes look at them filming the final scene in Hugo: http://www.wimp.com/longsteadicam/

Pretty cool!

I just watched After Hours. Another brilliant Scorsese movie, who woulda' thunk it?

So, I'm pretty much decided now that he's the best American director ever. I can't think of anyone who's got as many truly great films as him.

Taxi Driver
Goodfellas
Raging Bull
Casino
The Departed
Mean Streets
King Of Comedy
After Hours
Bringing Out The Dead

All absolutely brilliant films, and Taxi Driver is one of the best films ever made. Still some I need to see as well; Last Temptation Of Christ, Kundun, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore just to name a couple that are on my 'must watch' list.

After Hours is a superb film! I remember watching it all those years ago on TV one night, and it stayed with me. Its a comedy of errors and really brilliantly told. Not to mention a great cameo by the master himself.

You really need to watch The Last Temptation of Christ; its one of my favourite Scorsese films. Everything about it is superb. The music, the cinematography, editing, and Defoe is excellent in it, as the tortured, self doubting Christ. Harvey Keitel also puts in a great performance as the sympathetic Judas aswell as Harry Dean Stanton who plays Paul/ Saul. Scorsese knows his actors well and always chooses the best ones for each role, whether supporting, or main.

I just love the last act in that film. Oh just go and watch it!

I have to still to watch Kundun too. Aswell as Boxcar Bertha one of his earlier fares.

Scorsese truly is the greatest American director in film, bar none.

What do you all think of his style, his movies, his love for The Rolling Stones??


Who doesn't love the rolling stones. Taxi Driver is my favourite film and is the greatest film ever made. Scorsese is an overlooked genius. People tend to perfer Spielberg because his films are not as difficult as Scorsese's. The man is God.

I wouldn't be so sure of that. Spielberg is one of my favourite directors and I cannot tell you how much shit I get for that. Trust me, Scorsese is the more popular of the two
