What up? Secondary profile for Cleckley.

The idea here is simple: Flickchart has been wearing thin for some time now. I've found intermittent entertainment value from some MA flicking and conversations with a handful of people here, but, yeah, the site's wearing thin.

This is my attempt to create a new list by porting every movie listed under my 'Cleckley' chart over and ranking each film one by one. So that's a little under 2700 movies, and all to be ranked by title. The hope is to create a precise list because, quite frankly, my other list is garbage. Already the ordering seems more accurate, but naturally I'm having to constantly choose between films of similar entertainment value.

Could be an arduous journey even if I manage to add 100 films a day. Ultimately, this is the beginning of the end.

The user name is intended to be whimsical and, by the grace of God, not prophetic.

Good, at least you'll still be here, even if it's limited. I really, really want them to get their TV and music sites up and running. I remember someone (Nathan, I think) saying earlier this year that it was going to happen sometime in the near future. I just wonder when. It'd be fun to find friends from here on the new sites and start all over again. Anything you can think of other than discussion that would make this place exciting again?

And what's the deal with your start-up? You not doing it anymore?

Adult life ain't all it's cracked up to be. But since I can't lounge around in Power Ranger undies and watch Jackie Chan movies for the rest of my life (wait, yes, I can), I'm going to college and working at a convenience store. I haven't been to school in a year because, well, I fucking hate school, but I'll be back. Majoring in film, but I hate most of the other guys in my major. Some serious stick-up-assage there. What a bunch of douchebags, most of them are.

I guess I'm with you on television. I mostly stick to the Travel Channel and sitcoms, but there's plenty of stuff I grew up on or that I've been meaning to watch that I could rank. But, like for you, it's a matter of investment. Too much time, and if it sucks, I'm screwed. Music would probably be more fun, but I'm nowhere as into either as I am movies.

There's not much I'd change here. Just that it takes shorts and a few other things longer to get added than others. But really, I just appreciate having a site like this to mess around on.

And good luck with the start-up.You're a more adventurous man than I.

When I was growing up I wasn't allowed to watch r rated movies. The only 2 r rated vhs that were in the house (my dad's) were Hard to Kill and Road House. I can't tell you how many times I watched those movies when my parents were asleep or out of the house.
I am not a Steven Seagal fan but I will not apologize for liking that movie.
As far as Bruce Lee. I understand that he was groundbreaking and all but their have been many greats to come along since that have made his movies look decidedly weak in comparison.

The Matrix? Nah, that doesn't sound right. Blade Runner would make for a better comparison. It's got a lived-in feel that works well and the morality's a little murky. I don't get where The Matrix comparison would come from, at all. Incredible movie, anyway.

Miike, by-design? He's really spontaneous IMO. Like in Ley Lines, he couldn't get a permit to film, so he just kinda improvised the drug deal scenes with the crew when the streets were fairly clear, stuff like that. His style is very collaborative and natural, enough so to fit any genre handed to him.

Scorsese, well... Actually, I never really noticed my theme of criticizing "cynical" or self-aware films, but I guess I do. Scorsese (and Bergman, and Tarkovsky, and a bunch of other "big" directors I admire) could be deliberate, sometimes calculated, but I don't think cynical. I never feel like they're talking down to me like I'm a teenager (or that they presume to know what my inner teenager likes), like I feel Zombieland, TDK, Fight Club, etc. do.

I'm not totally allergic to self-awareness, I just hate "market" mentality. Those movies feel too MTV, that's the best way I can express it.

Anyway, I'm not a dogmatic thinker, I try to engage things on their own terms. If my writing ever has an air of fundamentalism it's just because I'm loudmouthed by nature.

"So, I take it you throw The Godfather in with the other "Market" movies?"

No not really. I do think it's overpraised and it's not very important to me, but I'm just trolling when I talk shit about it.

Hmm. If you're looking for quick stimulation, the triad trilogy might not be the best way to go, but I do recommend them 100% of the time. Shinjuku is the closest to Ichi in terms of grotesque comic excesses, but it's got a more brutal realist slant.

Rainy Dog is a chilly, slowish, no-spectacle neonoir, but it's got a lot of substance. It's also very honest and morally grey (hell, all three are). I remember you complaining about prepackaged values, monogamy, that sort of thing--these movies exist in another world from that kind of thing. Ley Lines is like that too, although it's ultimately the most conventional one, sort of a coming-of-age drama that ends on a one-liner.

All three are low budget and not-too-action-packed, fair warning. Best to put on your film festival hat.

And rago vs pomo... I'm sure a lot of his weirdness is lifted from Lynch, but IMO uses it in a much different way. In one of his movies (not saying which one so as not to spoil it) a character randomly pulls out a rocket launcher in the final scene. I heard that the actor asked "why does my character pull out a bazooka here?" Miike replied "why not?" There's certainly some pomo, but it's second-hand pomo in a sea of rago.

The line between "art" and trash is very blurry in Japanese cinema. We were like that in the 70s, but now everything is packed into neat little boxes, with the occasional rare exception (Coen brothers stuff, Drive, etc). It seems like the japs are philosophically stuck in that decade, which is fine by me.

I'm too much of a realist to really agree with you on the monogamy thing (humans are wired for jealousy and crazy drama, I think) but I can see what you're saying.
"Occidentals, man, we're a little silly with the way we love to indulge in seediness, but somehow still consider that Disney/Hallmark/death do us part crap to be an ideal worth hoisting up on a plinth."
Unless you think of it this way: raunchiness can be a form of escapism from the safe, romanticized standard, or maybe vice-versa. One extreme is boring/mundane without the other one hanging around to give it some contrast.

Trier (von Trier? How do European names work) is a hack and Antichrist is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I'm not too into Lynch, I've really only seen Eraserhead. I keep putting his stuff off. Eh, some day.

Ah well, what isn't to some extent a negotiation between basic impulses and weird arbitrary social mores

I think I agree with you in the sense that it's harmful to look at it in this sanctified sort of way, like biology doesn't even enter the equation. That's what made sexdeathviolenceetc. all so taboo in the first place, which is part of why we have this unhealthy relationship with it where we pretend to be repulsed but we're actually obsessed. (I don't think this is necessarily bad 100% of the time--a repressed society has some interesting quirks, because so much overflows.)

We're a generation of narcissistic nihilists though, so ironically (I think) that's why we like keeping those hoary "til death do us part" cliches around to fall back on once we get all the rebellion out of our systems. We're too savvy--we laugh at the idea of "meaning" in life unless it's some idyllic abstraction phoned in from another universe. But some day we realize fairytales like that are no less laughable than the social tokens we spend our lives collecting to appear important, unique, etc. So then out of fear, the trendy hip "radical" buys into the popular narrative and starts a family and gets a gross car and starts putting up signs around election time or whatever.

Sorry if none of that made sense

I've heard a few good things about All About Lily Chou-Chou. You think I'd like it?

Also, serious question: "I'm pretty much a narcissistic nihilist so (un-ironically) I have no interest in causes and ideals. I just like to make myself happy. Hedonism, I guess."

I know you like movies about male bonding and you get nostalgic about your old pals and your brothers - do you/did you just like having them around to make yourself happy or is it like the more traditional "Stand by Me" sort of thing?

You're right. The only reason you ever make friends with someone to begin with is because they make you happy. I suppose what I was asking was whether or not that was the only reason or if there was a "deeper" one. You answered that part anyway (and then some :) ) so it's all good.

I think everyone does the "serve your purpose" thing to a degree, though. We've all got that work friend or that guy you talk to at the record store but you have no intention of hanging out with outside of that context. I tend to do it less than most, I think, but it's definitely normal.

And people ARE stupid. Most people are surprised to hear me say that, 'cause they think I'm such a nice guy (and I am), but people are fucking stupid. Especially people our age. Fuck Facebook. Fuck the stupid pictures. I don't get it, personally. I know you hate a lot of that shit too. I'm curious to find out if it's for similar reasons.

"...I don't know that this generation is any dumber than the previous ones."

I can't prove that they're any dumber as we're all the same age and I haven't been around any longer than they have, but Christ, are these people stupid. I refuse to believe that the people my folks hung around with were just as stupid.

I mean, I have a Facebook page, but I'm rarely on the damn thing. What bugs me about it, and people our age, in general, is the inflated sense of self-worth you were talking about. It's all way too "look at me". I might be talking to the wrong guy about that sort of thing (HA!), but you're obviously an intelligent guy. You've got some shit to say. These people have absolutely nothing of value to say, and yet I get the sense that these people think they're writing the sequel to the Bible. And you've got people who have your phone number or people who see you on a daily basis leaving you public messages. Not because they actually have anything to say, they just want people to comment on their pages. I KNOW you. You live 20 minutes away. Why are we communicating through Facebook? It's all nonsense. Sometimes I feel like I'M the crazy one. I dunno. Maybe I'm being too hard on them, but "irrational" seems a bit nice, on your part.

I just re-watched Taxi Driver again for the second time, and it definitely confirmed it's status as a masterpiece. I guess my main reason for loving this film is because for me Travis was a very relatable character.

Maybe he's a little misguided, but he's not a bad guy. Some of his qualities reflect the innocence of a young child, but others reflect the attributes of a disturbed individual. He does have a hatred for how society operates, but this isn't necessarily wrong.

When he comes back from Vietnam, and sees the corruption of the city he had a right to be judgmental. His problem is he can't connect or communicate with anybody; he just can't. He's sees how little effort people have to put in social relationships to make them work, and it disgusts him. He also seems to be disgusted by the other people around him. For example when he goes to the bar with the other cab drivers, and there all talking about fucking women; he just sits there, repulsed.

I think the reason he seems to be addicted to the porno films is because he can't connect with women, but he deeply wants to. I don't think sexuality drives Travis at all. I think he just wants a satisfying relationship.

I also think the reason he saved Iris was not because he wanted to protect her as much as he wanted himself to be a hero. In a way it was a somewhat selfish action. She asked to get the police involved, but he said that he would do it himself.

It also shows how our culture glorifies acts of violence, and how violent acts can make people heroes. And no I do not think the ending was a dream.

Leo was fucking hilarious, dude. Hilarious and vicious when he needed to be. The movie's a little slow in places and could've used some trimming, but it was damn good. Foxx is probably going to be a little underappreciated in the grand scheme of things 'cause his part isn't as flashy as the other two. And it was nice to finally see Tarantino tackle a full-blown shootout.

The no-nonsense approach was fine. Some of it was a bit too, I dunno, cheesy(?), but the tone wasn't what bothered me. No-nonsense only works if you've got the action to back it up. And, other than the gatling gun scene and the stuff with the corrupt Judges, I can't remember a single action scene. It was all look and feel with no bite.

Eeeeh, Michael, I'm a little iffy about. I'm the kind of guy who'll write you off in a heartbeat if you do something like what he was accused of doing. But I honestly think the guy was just an emotionally-stunted, asexual weirdo. There's no way in hell I'd let one of my kids (if I had any) sleep in a bed with a grown man, but I don't think he was actually doing anything with them. If I did, I'd stop listening to his music like *that*. And I'll never see a Polanski film because of what he did. Not worth it.

I'm a dork when it comes to love and being in love, so the idea of somebody cheating on someone they supposedly love is a disgusting one to me, but I'm not going to skip Terminator 5 because of what Arnold did.

It's not about money, just principles. And in some cases, but not all, I'm sure my enjoyment would be derailed. I don't know that I could concentrate during a Polanski film, for instance. I'd just be focused on what he did.

As for missing out on his shit, I'm in the middle of an extended break from school. (Some would say I've dropped out and I don't want to admit it, but to-may-to, to-mah-to.) I've spent most of my time getting the shit I dread out of the way. Ya know, shit that has absolutely nothing to do with what I'm studying. As such, before I started this *ahem* break, I hadn't really taken a whole lot of film classes. Not for a film student, anyway. Mostly stuff on Chinese/Taiwanese film, pop culture, etc. Take my scholastic boredom (before this *ahem* break, I'd been in some form of school for about, hmm...20 years) and combine it with the energy-suckage that comes with having a job, and you've probably gotten to the core of why I haven't been back.

Um, I honestly don't know. I'm just gonna be straight-up. I'm an intelligent/semi-intelligent fuck-up who hates and always will hate school. Absolutely hate it. My folks wanted me to go, I understood and still understand the importance, but I didn't want to be there. I want to be a screenwriter (and a director, in a perfect world, but realistically, neither one's likely to happen) and I didn't want to hate every second I spent there, so I majored in film. It's the only thing I really want to do and I know it's not the best idea, but like I said, I'm a fuck-up. I dunno.

I'm doing some spring-cleaning here, getting rid of stuff I can't remember and "movies" that aren't really movies, and I wanted your opinion on something. Grindhouse...split it in two, and you get Planet Terror and Death Proof. They ARE kinda-sorta two movies thrown together, but Grindhouse was meant to be watched in one sitting, as one movie. Should I keep all three or get rid of the halves and just keep the whole? Having all three feels kind of silly but it also feels justifiable.

Yeah, believe me, I'm aware that the longer I wait, the less likely I am to go back. And I've always hated school. It's gotten worse as I've gotten older, but I've always hated it. I don't like my "colleagues", but it's mostly just me being sick of school. We'll see.

And I ended up dropping the two halves. There was something, I dunno...wrong about having all three on my list. Felt like cheating.

I've always wondered how different the game would be today had Bruce lived on. Would the Three Brothers still have had their chance to shine? What movies would Bruce have made and would he still be making them today? Would he be a bigger deal today or not (I doubt it)?

And I wouldn't say I'm breaking away from the site. I love it. Just personal stuff...as a result, I imagine I'll be spending less time here. I could be wrong. But I will be watching fewer movies. I'm just going to try to stick to the ones I think I'm gonna like. You get burned a few too many times and you start to stick to what you know.

Kind of related note - old movies can be really boring. I know I'm not "supposed" to say that, but it's true. 60's are cool. The 70's were fantastic...the height of things, probably. But I dunno. I can't fuck with some of the older stuff. Sue me, ya know?

Oh yeah, Waking Life. I was hanging out with Spider-Man's girlfriend when I gave that one a watch. I wanted to love it, but some of it just felt like wankery. I need to look at it when my head's not in the clouds. Probably shouldn't be *that* low on my list, but I like to give everything some breathing room to move.

Mary Jane again. I need to watch it again 'cause I think it (The Graduate) should be bumped down a bit. Even still, yeah, I really enjoyed it. Loved Hoffman. God forgive me, I loved the Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack. Hoffman's relationship with Mrs. Robinson - both the sexual and emotional aspects. I can be pretty directionless, in general, so his post-college blues were something I identified with. You seem to be stronger-willed than I am and I'm more of a sap than you are, so I can see why I'd dig the movie a lot more than you would. And I loved the bittersweet ending. It feels like a personal win for the both of them at first, and then reality sets in and you're not so sure. And neither are they. Hoffman's just this lost loser kid who's getting some from an older lady. Dude doesn't know what else to do with himself and she's just in it for a good dicking. And then he goes off and falls in love with the lady's kid. And I appreciated how well-rounded Mrs. Robinson was as a character when they didn't have put as much effort into it as they did. Or maybe most of the effort was on Bancroft's part. Memory's hazy (HA!). I dunno, dude. Personally, I thought it was compelling stuff. But yeah, I'm the sappy, romantic dude. I can be pretty emotional and I'm not the coolest dude in the world. I like to think I have my moments, though. And I guess my compadres do too.

Spooky Encounters was a blast. Solid, solid 80's HK fun. Take Sammo's usual and throw in some Raimi-esque shit...yeah, I can dig it. The ending had me simultaneously enthralled and on the floor laughing. Childish of me to laugh at the shit that was going down, I know, but I think anybody who EVER laughs at anything Jackie or Sammo do has to be a little childish. Just really fun shit I can see myself re-visiting on more than one occasion.

Oh yeah, agree with you on Bruce (even if I don't love him quite as much as you do - if you're about Fu, you're about Bruce). And I most definitely need to watch Waking Life again. "Waiting for something to happen" (which is kind of odd, considering what I was doing while I was watching it) was probably not the best state of mind to be in. Listening to people throw and trade philosophical jabs is something I'd probably find entertaining if I went in with the right mindset.

No worries. I don't care about formatting. I mean, I really don't give a shit.

I hated it. HATED it. White's always a plus, I'll give you that. I'm very pro-underdog, but I'll root for a winner under the right circumstances. These guys were just meatheads. Boring, douche-tastic meatheads. The Justin guy actually bothered me. I'm fine with him being the villain, but it was odd of them to go out of their way to make the weird guy the villain...because he was weird. The lead cat was totally uninteresting and the boxer was a prick. Throw in some eye-rolling softcore porn, shitty dialogue with the wooden acting to match it, and some uninspired action (other than a fight scene or two), and you've got one bored Tory. No, wait - "bored" isn't the right word. Not "bored". I was borderline irate. Couldn't find one redeeming quality, as hard as I tried to find one. Just a hot, steaming stew of shit. A greenish-brown shit-stew of a movie.

Oh, and I want to say the idea of occasionally disagreeing with someone I like is an attractive one. I can't tell you how absolutely bored I would be talking to someone who agrees with me 100% of the time on everything. I HAVE to argue sometimes. It's not a good quality, but it's one I've noticed I possess. I like talking to people who I'm kind of 50-50 with. Keeps things interesting, ya know?

Did you ever hear the acting advice Marlon Brando gave Ron Perlman? Perlman asked how Brando knew he was doing fine in a scene- Brando replied 'check your arsehole' if it's tight, you have to do it again, if it's loose, you did fine'. Interesting......

I heard Kev on a podcast saying that Jeff Anderson is concerned that Jay may have 'too much to do' in the film. And unless this means a massive View-Askewniverse orgy in which Jay in on top of the two angels from Dogma, it probably mean's that he won't be *That Jay* anymore. Maybe he'll be more stoic and religious or something, I dunno. It'd be a reasonable transition considering his 'Got Christ' role in Clerks 2. But still funny, of course.

Okay, so, my participation here has been next to nonexistent here for the past, like, half-a-year. But I'm back (I think). I've just been using the site to keep track of what I watch for the most part. Discussion's gone so far downhill, I had to bail for a minute. Anyway, I hope you're still posting here. I went through my comments and noticed I'd completely forgotten to respond to something you wrote (which was a response to something *I* wrote - HAHAHA, I'm such an asshole!).

Have you written anything yet? If you have, I will TOTALLY read it. And as long as we're talking sex/social comedies, did you see Don Jon? I could go heads or tails on whether or not you'd like it. I loved it, personally.

I've got a few things I want to write, actually. My first problem is picking one out of the 3 or 4 I'd like to write. Another problem I've got is having too many places to go as opposed to not having enough. And tone. I tend to like movies that jump around tonally, but that's not always the case with everyone else.

Oh, yeah, Linklater. I've only seen the first. But I loved it. It's hard to hook me with a romance, or any sort of drama, really. They're all so same-y. But that one got me. I figure I'll put a few years in between the other two, because what would be the point in rushing through them?

The rest of my top ten - I'm fucking with it. Seeing what looks right. Trainspotting really doesn't feel right out of the number one spot, but I dunno. You ever wonder why your favorite movie's your favorite movie? Or if it's even your favorite movie?

Amusing to hear that you're tied down? I dunno. It's just funny, dude.

With me? Umm, I'm actually writing now. So that's cool. I get distracted from one thing wanting to writer another, though. And I'm getting promoted to what's essentially "assistant manager" at the j-o-b. Mo' money, mo' hours. Hopefully, not mo' problems.

And I'm having, like, an existential movie crisis. I don't know what my top 10's gonna look like in a month. I think I value some of these other movies more than I give them credit for.

Let me see, what have you been watching lately? Ness is pretty cool, no? Dialogue's a little iffy at the beginning, but their choreography's getting better and better. So's the cinematography and the editing. - I liked Bad Grandpa more than you did, but I also saw it with my friend's kid. The whole thing's funnier when you've got a middle-school kid with you. - Gotta hear what you thought of Wolf of Wall Street and The Ides of March. And Les Misérables just for shits and giggles. And how was Justice League: War? I've been enjoying those things lately.

Thank you, sir. All for the love of money.

Les Mis is garbage? That's what I figured/was hoping you would say. :) Yeah, no, I don't normally go for musicals and I KNOW you don't.

I felt about the same with Ides. Great dialogue and Gosling's my boy. Political theater...yeah, we've certainly got plenty of that.

Wolf's only overrated in comparison to Goodfellas. It was pretty high up there on the entertainment scale. It only goes down a few pegs when you start thinking about how good Scorsese REALLY is. And I don't really miss the malevolence. It's a comedy, so it wouldn't have really been appropriate. Unless we're just talking preference, then yeah, absolutely.

I guess I'll be jumping on that Justice League then.

Re: re: Stunt People - Contour is goofy as a pair of sloppy fake titties, but the action's there. Not as sophisticated as the stuff they're putting out now, but I think you'd appreciate it.

Check out The Hidden if you're in the mood for some 80's stuff. It's totally fucking nuts. Got a Walter Hill/Terminator mixed with Grand Theft Auto sort of vibe going on. Ninja 2. Have I already recommended that? If I have, I'm doing it again. AWESOME movie. If you like the Undisputed's...Christ, you'll like this one. I don't know if you like the Wright/Pegg/Frost movies, but The World's End was fantastic. Probably my favorite movie of the year. And that's all I've really got. Most of the action-oriented stuff I've watched lately has been disappointing.

Oh, do yourself a favor and watch this deleted scene. It's from Berandal. Contextually, there's not much going on, so no spoilers. Just give it a look. Call it a teaser if you want. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKMZtC1SYvg

I did a month-long Halloween thing. That's some geeky-ass shit to do, but it was fun. Audition was suitably fucked up. I'd never seen Candyman before, which blows my mind 'cause I grew up watching that shit. Dead Snow 2 was everything you could want from a horror comedy. Maybe the best splatstick movie of the 21st century. And I'm going to continue dick-riding Adam Wingard because The Guest was nice.

I saw Interstellar yesterday and it's not "best movie ever" it'll probably be labeled by some of the dudes here, but it's good enough. I think Nolan needs to scale back, a little. On the plus side, I got to see trailers for Furious 7 and Age of Ultron. Furious 7 looks like a fucking BLAST. Vin Diesel vs. Jason Statham? Say whaaat!? 13-year-old me would've shat his pants had he seen that. And Age of Ultron's got me excited. "There are no strings on me."

Oh, and I re-watched Eastern Condors, and you were totally right. Other than the ending, it's really not the classic I remember it being.
