It was announced today that Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life won the Palme d’Or. It’s great news for the filmmaker, because a movie sure looks impressive with award leaves.
But a few days ago, the movie screened to some pretty mixed reviews so it does seem odd that it won the Palme d’Or. Then again, most of us still haven’t seen it so…who knows?
But what if Tree of Life was a second choice? Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia was doing well until the director started talking about Hitler (Dunst won best actress after all).
Do you think the festival could have voted against the movie in order to stay away from the whole controversy? After all, had Von Trier won, he wouldn’t have been allowed in the room.
What do you think?
Don’t get me wrong, Robert DeNiro is a great actor. In my opinion, probably one of the finest in movie history. But lately, he’s been slacking off for quite a while. How can you go from Taxi Driver to Little Fockers?
Let’s find out when he started being lazy.
Who’s the best?
What happens when your movie makes 61 millions in only a few days? You make another one! Meet the Parents 4 is inevitable because as long as it still draws an audience and that Ben Stiller shows up for the paycheck, I can’t see this stopping.
I’m not saying that it’s a good idea, but let’s imagine for fun how terrible it will be.
20 years later, it’s hard to imagine someone denying the quality of Goodfellas. It’s certainly a classic that helped to create a more realistic approach to the genre than movies The Godfather. The Sopranos, for instance, are admittedly inspired by it.
Since Scorsese made the HBO ratings explode with Boardwalk Empire, I guess that tv networks are showing a great inretest at the gangster genre on television. Especially if Scorsese is acting as producer. So it was just announced on Slashfilm that Goodfellas will be adapted as a tv show.
