|Jan-06-17|| ||zanzibar: Out of curiosity, <HMM>, have you ever seen this movie with Nicole?|
It's one of her earliest. You might want to pedal over there to see her red curls in full flow.
|Jan-06-17|| ||zanzibar: From humble beginnings...|
|Jan-06-17|| ||HeMateMe: um...that film looks horrible Zanz, like the kind of thing actors take to pay the bills before they find a real script. |
I think "To Die For" is her best movie. She's the centerpiece, a truly evil (but sexy!) character. She's ok in most movies, not my favorite but ok.
she loves these types of roles, does them well.
Tom Cruise is an idiot, I think we can all agree on that.
|Jan-06-17|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> yes, maybe Cruise spoiled her as an actress for me. I have to admit I've only caught a couple of her movies.|
I enjoyed <BMX Bandits>, but I saw it a long time ago, and barely remember it. I recall it being mindless fun, with an Aussie twist. To quote one imdb reviewer:
<Nonetheless, it is an old adventurous cult classic that is well worth checking out.>
BTW- Matt Dillon is a Doll too, but I really only liked him in one movie - <Drugstore Cowboy>. He was stellar in that one.
|Jan-06-17|| ||Retireborn: Yes, Nicole is excellent in "To Die For", and that has David Cronenberg in it too, right at the end.|
Another good Nicole one is "Malice", with Alec Baldwin's memorable "I am God" speech.
|Jan-06-17|| ||saffuna: Nicole Kidman left me cold in "To Die For." Too icy for my taste.|
|Jan-07-17|| ||HeMateMe: well, she was playing a hateable villainess. Some actors think those are the best parts.|
|Jan-07-17|| ||saffuna: It's a joke, if you remember the ending.|
|Jan-07-17|| ||HeMateMe: in the end doesn't she get killed by a hit man and dumped in a lake? The movie ends with the sister of the boy she had killed ice skating on the frozen lake where her body was dumped (dancing on her grave). You can see Kidman's lifeless face in the ice. I don't see any joke in it?|
|Jan-07-17|| ||zanzibar: A quote by a real doll...
...gets me a little confused from the mixed metaphors.
|Jan-07-17|| ||saffuna: <I don't see any joke in it?>|
I said she left my cold...
No more explaining.
|Jan-07-17|| ||HeMateMe: I get it now JB, thank you. Were you able to keep writing material for the Tonight Show, after Jay Leno retired? Just wondering.|
|Jan-07-17|| ||zanzibar: Arghh! <HMM> spoiled the ending for me, and that's no joke!|
|Jan-08-17|| ||Retireborn: <z> It's from the 90s....better catch up with "The Usual Suspects" before somebody spoils who Keyser Soze is for you :)|
|Jan-08-17|| ||HeMateMe: Pitt and Morgan Freeman first encounter the Kevin Spacey character in Se7en: He's quite slippery|
Spacey surrenders at the precinct:
one of the better movies of this type. You want to jump into the screen and strangle Spacey--the sign of a good performance!
|Jan-08-17|| ||Retireborn: <HMM> Hang on, what if zanzi decides to become Wrath because of all this spoiling? It'll be your head in the box :)|
|Jan-08-17|| ||zanzibar: True that - if <HMM> gives up Rosebud I turn into this guy:|
Although the symbol appears to better advantage here:
(I'd be surprised if anyone recognizes these two dolls, although, with this crowd, one never knows)
|Jan-08-17|| ||HeMateMe: I thought the head in the box scene in "Se7en" was even more potent in that they didn't actually show the severed head, as would have been done in the Freddy/Jason/Michael Myers movies. Using one's imagination makes the scene more powerful.|
|Jan-08-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: I think Seven was the most stupid movie I ever saw except Rainbow Bridge.|
|Jan-08-17|| ||HeMateMe: I bet you have no friends and hate animals and small children too, right?|
|Jan-08-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <HMM>
That's why we are on this site. I don't have bad feelings about animals or children -who are usually small, that's right- except adult humans. Call me pathetic ;)
|Jan-09-17|| ||HeMateMe: Priyanka, at the pool, from "Quantico."
|Jan-10-17|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> clearly a photo from a fake news story - nobody is even looking at her as she exits the pool!|
|Jan-10-17|| ||HeMateMe: I noticed that too. It's a still taken from some action seqance. Obviously in real life the guys would all be looking. I think in that moment she's trying to seduce some foreigner-criminal in the pool area and all of the guys in the water are FBI cadets too, so of course they're too professional to be checking out someone's butt. |
Probably a funny moment on set, the director telling all of the boys "Don't look!"
|Jan-10-17|| ||zanzibar: I'll have to ask my friend on the force about that:|
