Sunday night was a kick-ass night for movie watching for me. First it occured to me that, even though I had had the video for quite some time, I'd never seen Schindler's List - so I decided to set aside 3 hours. Wow! I have never seen a film SO powerful! After A.I. two weeks ago, (which was absolutely unbelievably awesome), and now this: Spielberg IS a genius. This is his best film ever! I wasn't planning to watch anything else, but the moment I stopped the tape to rewind it, the default TV station popped back onto the screen to show me the title The Ice Storm, which was just starting, and I had also never seen. And... DAMN, is that an interesting movie. Every performance was incredible - it was such a simple story, but allowed for so much complex emotion.Easily one of the most thought provoking movies I've seen (aside from the earlier film!). After this one I had more than enough to think about, but I remembered that Alien: Resurrection was showing on Channel 4, and I'd ALSO never seen that one. So I missed the first 35 or so minutes, but from what I'd heard it was a pile of crap anyway. My recollection wasn't wrong! Boy that movie is lame! And one of the main problems is that Winona Ryder is SOOOOOOOO wrong for this movie. It took a long time to get to that didn't it! Anyway, another thing that occured to me, is that Alien 3 was considered as inferior to the films that preceeded it, as Godfather Part 3. Now, in the light of Alien: Resurrection, Alien 3 is (to my knowledge) much more highly regarded (which I realise in part is due to the fact that Fincher is now an established film-maker and not a Hollywood rookie as he was then). So, if Coppola wanted to increase the standing of Part 3, all he has to do is make an even worse Part 4! Interesting theory, no? ------------------ "The Kid is HOT!"
