Oscars, Shmoscars; I just want a great Nat Turner movie that gets him known more in terms of American history.

Give me a John Brown movie after that.


To do his life justice, you'd have to make it in at least 2 parts otherwise the backstory might have too many flashbacks and get confusing or get brushed aside to make him an action hero. John Brown's life was too complicated to neatly fit in a 3 hour film.

Birth of a Nation sold at Sundance for a record $17.5 million to Fox Searchlight. Highest buying price ever for any film at any festival.

Brace yourself for the "BUT HE KILLED WHITE BABIES!!!!!!" tears. If only it had been a more polite, socially acceptable slave rebellion.

how did it take this long for someone to make a movie titled birth of a nation that is basically opposite of the original?

also, has anyone seen the original? what an infuriating piece of horsefeathers that was

Yeah, it's incredibly stressful to watch. Sure, it's important historically, but it's a big pile of horsefeathers and you just sit there getting angrier and angrier at it.

Mostly comedies, from Keaton and Chaplin and Lloyd and the like. But also some dramas, like the first two, plus Nosferatu, Battleship Potemkin, Greed, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,The Thief of Bagdad, The President, Blackmail, Downhill, The Big Parade, The Man Who Laughs, Faust, Intolerance and Sunrise.

Yeah, I think comedies are certainly the easiest films to portray on the silent screen for obvious reasons.

Hey mojo, I was looking for a movie to watch and since I own basically everything, I was really struggling. Until I found the criterion bluray of "the killing," which I've never seen before.

Are we friends now or

Heck yes. Let's go get in a big bar brawl that inexplicably turns into a shirtless wrasslin' match.

and ends in one steamy sweaty exhausted embrace

the killing is great, but no street cred given until you watch the film historian commentary all the way through

so umm, has anyone here seen tiptoes? i didn't even know this movie existed and when i saw the trailer today, i was convinced the trailer was some sort of fake movie from another movie. yet, it's real. it features gary oldman in the role of a lifetime



horsefeathers i might have to buy this movie

Tiptoes is a horsefeathering nightmare. I remember seeing the trailer in the early 00's and then finally checking it out after it started getting ripped apart on various bad movie sites and podcasts. It's...not a fun watch. I mean, there's the initial "what the horsefeathers?!?" of Gary Oldman playing a little person by either getting on his knees Dorf-style and wearing a giant coat or sitting on couches with fake tiny legs sticking out, plus Peter Dinklage as an anarchist with a ridiculous French accent, but the movie itself is just this bizarre, split personality slog. Clearly the filmmaker intended it to be this big, serious drama, but along the way they tried to switch it up and make it more lighthearted and romantic comedy-like after the director was fired. It ends up careening back and forth between wacky horsefeathers like David Allen Grier banging a dwarf porn star on a table in the middle of a party and Matthew McConaughey screaming at (and ultimately straight up abandoning!) his pregnant wife about how he's "A horsefeathering DWARF" because Gary Oldman is his brother and their parents are dwarves, too. Nevermind that dwarfism DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY, but whatever.

It's kind of not worth watching outside of the trailer or YouTube clips. It feels like it's way too long and it's genuinely unpleasant and rarely ever fun-bad, IMO.
