Marathons / 1SO vs. All the Directors - Alex Proyas

#314 Alex Proyas Ranked List

After The Crow and Dark City, I was all ready for great things from Proyas. The Crow remains one of the best comic book movies ever made. I don't know what happened. It's years between features and from what I hear, he's increasingly unwatchable.

I'm going to find out for myself by watching Knowing (2009), and if I can find it I'm going back to the beginning to watch Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds (1987).

The version I watched has the "prolonged scene of unsimulated sex", so I'm guessing I watched the original cut.

How I Live Now (2002)
★ ★
Saoirse Ronan is American, Tom Holland gets to be British and George MacKay is the dreamboat cousin. A sexual relationship between cousins isnít the weirdest part of this movie. War breaks out in the background, and these characters are in it like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. That may work in a book, but as a movie, war is too inherently cinematic to work as background.

Also, this paragraph is so you. I think you told me once that when you see something you want to make, you say, "I can figure out how to do that" or, "If they can do it, so can I" and then you do.

How many humans have done a thing? I'm a typical human... so in theory I should posses the basic requirements to also do the thing. Not the best version of a thing perhaps. If I wanted to make a wedding cake I would not imagine it will be the highest level, but could I achieve 85%? I have hands, and eyes and if I spend some money I would have the tools. If I watched a few hours of things on youtube I would have the knowledge. Could I manage a cake that would be respectable? I imagine so.

Sometimes things seem like art, and then you see tools that were used to create the thing and it's like, oh well... I could probably do that. :))

I'll be watching Ken Park (2002)

do you know which cut you will watch? 

Big fan of Kids and Bully and liked Another Day in Paradise.  Wassup Rockers was mostly forgetful for me. I think Ken Park may be more difficult but only remember  the uncut version was extremely difficult to find back in the 2000ís and 2010ía as the movie had been banned in so many places. There seemed to be an uncut Russian version bootleg but most versions I could find were all censored.

Think the the re-release/update of Mario 3D World has co-op. Any of the big Nintendo staples like Mario Kart and Smash Brothers are good.
