"Late Pass: O_E recommends 'MUNICH' to cure insomnia."
Fri Aug-11-06 11:02 PM by Orbit_Established

  

          

Its pathetic character development will put any sensible insomniac
directly to sleep.


I mean...wow.


What a load of shit.


It should have just taken the bait and become the action movie that it
wanted to be. Its action scenes sucked, because of the overemphasis
on all this "meaning" and "politics" and bullshit that was also poorly done.


And do we really need a Jewish Keanu Reeves?


No, thank you.


I haven't seen a more boring lead actor is a long, long, long, time.


I'm charging Steven Spielberg with failure to obey OE's request for character
development.


If your protagonist doesn't have a real character, than his/her actions are nothing
but random ass occurences, and I don't feel for him/her at all. Your film then descends
into a series of cool things happening to a crash test dummy.


Remake this shit into a 'Blown Away' type action movie, and call it a night.


No excuses, Spielberg. Granted, Tom Hanks is a much better actor, but his lead in
'Saving Private Ryan' was thrice as developed with less screen time.

but his best movie is still prolly The Goonies

Munich is like a pretentious half-assed action flick
like war of the worlds and minority report is half-assed sci-fi
Private Ryan would be a great typical WW2 movie if it was thirty of forty minutes shorter and 25% less corny

especially post-Color Purple (which IS one of the great comdies of the era, 'cept it's supposed to be a serious drama).

Problem is, he don't seem to be willing or able to take the chances that great filmamkers will take to make great films.

Ya boy constantly remakes 50's era morality plays with a lotta flash and gloss, and try and pass'em off as great. Thing is, most americans lives are very much beyond the leave it to beaver ass shit speilberg makes.

Ain't nothin wrong with being a maker of films that are great entertainment, at all. Since he ain't got the stuff to make a Godfather or Apocalypse Now or Do The Right Thing, he should just go on 'head and be good at what he good at: making pretty, 50's kitshcy action flicks.

If anything, Apocalypse Now is an example of Coppola "tryin to be a 'great' director." And just because you take chances doesn't mean you end up with a good final product.

>just go on 'head and be good at what he good at: making

With what I said still in mind, I'm not mad at this analysis at all. Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Raiders of the Lost Ark would all be in my top five Speilberg movies, if not top three, and I think they fit, more or less, your description. But Hollywood gassed him up, only really gave him serious props when he did Schindler's List, and so now he thinks he has to be that serious director to get respect. (I haven't seen Terminal though and am still holding out on the direction of the next Jurassic Park movie.)

I'm also not so sure I buy into this "he thinks he's a serious filmmaker" theory, either. One would think that if he's trying not to make those "non serious" projects anymore -- almost as if he's embarrassed by them and wishes to disassociate himself from them -- that he wouldn't even want his name to be associated with them, no? I mean, why would he put his Executive Producer name on projects such as Monster House and the Jurassic Park sequels? One could argue that if he weren't trying to be a "serious" filmmaker that he would actually DIRECT said projects, but I actually believe that he picks projects that will challenge him, not necessarily because he's trying to gain respect. Or, can it just be that making the so-called blockbusters bores him to tears?

Also, Munich was my top film of last year.

So I'm not sure where that fits in. But I think that's more of a "this story isn't compelling to me", "I don't like Leonardo Dicaprio on screen for this long" type of thing.

They make money. *insert Jewish reference here*

>can it just be that making the so-called blockbusters
>bores him to tears?

Absolutely that's possible, but they're his strength.

But when he pushes himself to touch on serious subjects he doesn't always have the ability to, as the above poster said, take real chances, avoid the sacchrine side of things, or find a balance at least.

>Also, Munich was my top film of last year.

I think the "radio scene" is a good example of him overstretching himself. Overall, I liked Munich--even the 9/11 touch at the end.

Mel, is that you? Welcome to OkayPlayer!

Seriously, though, I don't know, maybe I'm naive, but I think Steve has made enough money where, if he so desired, he could announce that he's no longer putting his name on "THOSE kinds of movies"... and he could annnounce it using a snotty British accent... that would be a fun press conference...

Eh, I'm not going to begrudge him his sentimental streak... as you say, that's one of his strengths, imo...


>>Also, Munich was my top film of last year.

I think Munich is the closest he's gotten to "balance" in his so-called "serious" movies... but I attribute that more to Tony Kushner and Eric Roth's writing than Spielberg. And again, I don't find serious fault with the way the guy infuses certain emotional things into his movies...

I'd say he took a pretty big chance w/ that sex scene towards the end of the flick. And like you mentioned earlier, doesnt always work out well & certainly didnt in this flick.

>>Also, Munich was my top film of last year.

>I think the "radio scene" is a good example of him

I liked the radio scene. I always like a few moments of subtle comic relief in a somewhat strenuous film like Munich was.

Modesty is the best policy...better than honesty, in fact.

At the end of every of one my posts, my sole goal is to be able to say:

"Orbit, you touched a life today, with your modest post game."

I'm batting 1.000.

I'm un-L-able in addition to being modest.

Hell, I got half the board scared to even mention 'Pulp Fiction' around me.

Minority Report, War of the World and Munich. I really don't believe filmmaking gets much better.

Reality check: according to the 2000 census, there were more than 31,000 black physicians and surgeons, 33,000 black lawyers. There are about 1,400 black athletes playing professional basketball, football and baseball combined.

no character development? Avram goes from gung-ho Israeli super-trooper to paranoid refusenik living in exile in Brooklyn. he becomes a completely different person as a direct result of the toll his actions take on his character.

I mean it's one thing if you don't like the actor (although Keanu comparisons are ridiculous) but I don't understand how you can come to the conclusion that his actions are nothing but random occurences that bring about no character development. that was the least of the problems with the movie.

We are defining character development differently.

OE breakdown time:

If the beginning of the Movie is (A) and the end of the movie is (Z),
I define character development as (A) - (H), such that the events that occur
in (H) through (Z), which include the climax, are intriguing.

That's what this film misses imo

which I agree the film is somewhat lacking in. I thought it did a good job with character development though.

Well...no I can't, but I'm sure there is something good.

Oh. I got it.

You could have been robbing a liquor store instead of
writing stupid replies to OE.

So I might have saved you from doing a bid.

Folks need to stop clicking and responding
with dumb shit. Just ignore my shock posts, and
it'd be all good.

When cats get they panties in a bunch about how
"Deep" Pulp Fiction was, I can tell something I said
struck a nerve. If they didn't care, wouldn't nobody respond.

I mean c'mon, I got niggaz on here tryna track me in real
life via board beefs. Sad as that is, its an ego boost
for me cuz I be in peoples' thoughts, even off the boards.

But 99% of the time I be joking.

...I fall asleep on just about every dvd I watch these days. Has nothing to do with the quality of the film.

As for "Munich", I thought it was pretty good for the most part. I wouldn't call it boring in the least. I think the ending wasn't what I thought it should have been, but overall there were some strong performances, the story was as interesting as it could have been and it was I thought the action sequences were filled with a level of tension that most movies can't conjure.

You sad that I'm changing your opinion on 'Munich'?

WAAAAAAAAA.

Go cry about it.

Your favorite movie sucks.

And to the issue of it coming out last year -- last I checked, we
discuss old movies on here all the time.
