    The Brawler

    Chuck Wepner, basically a nobody, gets a shot at Ali, who was currently the heavyweight champ, in 1975.

    Aside from Zack McGowan, who portrayed Wepner, the acting was PUTRID. McGowan did awesome, reminded me a lot of Liev Schreiber. The story was good, made you feel for Wepner yet be disappointed in him as well. It definitely connected you with the person. It's worth a look-see, I suppose, just for the story.

    Gilda:
    A small-time gambler hired to work in a Buenos Aires casino learns that his ex-lover is married to his employer.

    Rita Hayworth (obligatory hummina hummina hummina) plays her part to perfection. I really dug this movie. Deceit, love, subplots...highly recommend.

    12 Angry Men is a rare classic that gets even better when viewed through a 21st century lens. Most movies lose a bit of their shine in modern context, particularly when you consider the sexual norms of the day (Connery Bond forcing himself on anything in a skirt, for instance).

    Speaking as someone who likes all the Terminator films in some capacity (and obviously to various levels) this looks good. I think people need to calm down about how this looks so much better than the other films based on this trailer...it looks exactly like them outside of having Hamilton in it and Cameron listed as producer.

    I am in for it.

    I literally could not disagree more. This is exactly, exactly wrong.

    One of the greatest values of older movies is they're a window onto a different mindset. They are one of the precious few chances we have to escape the bleak conformity of currentism. Even in reading old books we plow most of the sense under, rewriting it with the plodding sameness of our Weltanschauung. There is nothing more boring and soul-destroying than the anesthetic gas of our values and norms that surrounds us and is so unconscious and unexamined we're not even aware of it.

    A contemporary director has to be a genius to actually look at the world differently than the universal brainwashing of the times. An archaic director only needs to have captured their own age succinctly. The irritation and the feeling of being akilter when viewing these movies can be generated by even a marginally decent film. Think of just how f-cking weird something like King Kong is to us. It's as far from the lowest common denomination of our culture as German Expressionism was from it. That's part of what makes it so interesting. It's anthropology.

    It's important to remember that everything we think is just a phase. In 50 or 100 years people will view our artifacts and be offput by how weird and screwed up we seem compared to them -- not because they're better but just because the reroll of the cultural die has generated new seed values.

    It is all just hemlines.
