  • Visually the film earns the highest marks but storytelling drags down what could have been a  film of the year candidate into a sci-fi thriller that is 45 minutes too long. The plot isn’t interesting enough to justify the runtime and the twist ends the film on a flat note rather than an emotional one. Oscar nominations all around for the technical team here otherwise this film is a hard sell for your average moviegoer who needs to clear their schedule to experience Blade Runner 2049.

    President Donald Trump spent part of his Columbus Day on the golf course at Trump National in Virginia with sometime-rival Lindsey Graham. The South Carolina senator later said on Twitter that he “really enjoyed a round of golf” with Trump, praising the president for shooting a “73 in windy and wet conditions!” Graham continued on Twitter : “How bad did he beat me?

    (”Blade Runner 2049” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Some endnotes and digressions from the latest show : * We spent the first 15 minutes of the show talking about Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk trailer. If you missed it, here it is. (Friend of the show Jason O'Connell quips, "Dunkirk—the original Brexit, amirite?") * Another trailer we mention is the insanely great spot for Logan, featuring the iconic Johnny Cash cover of "Hurt." Maybe the best use of a pop song in a movie trailer, ever. It's here. * Bonus trailers? Just as we started

  • "Blade Runner 2049"
    The Sicario/Arrival director’s sequel to Blade Runner, which was set in an Asian-overrun Los Angeles in 2019, looks like La La Land the Sci-Fi Movie: in the future, apparently, white people will still make up most of the cinematically interesting Angelenos. Judging by the IMDB cast list, Edward James Olmos will be the only Chicano left in Los Angeles. By the way, Olmos’ police detective in Blade Runner was likely inspired by the Mexican-American police detective in Raymond Chandler’s 1952 novel The Long Goodbye. Olmos then went on to play the mournful Lt. Castillo in Miami Vice. (The TV show wasn’t really in gear until he was added midway through the first season.) The unhappy Mexican detective also shows up in Larry Gelbart’s fine Broadway musical tribute to L.A. noir, City of Angels. If you are going to write a spec script, think about writing a noir one, in part because it’s kind of okay to borrow stuff from the hard boiled masters, as we can see from how even a minor character from The Long Goodbye has had a terrific afterlife in a fine movie, TV show, and musical. ]]>

  • 1 - Two Great POW Movies You Might Have Missed
    (”Blade Runner 2049” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Lifestyle I have a very nasty head cold.  My laptop refuses to work (it's time to dump it); and I'm blogging on an Android tablet with considerable difficulty.  But it's Veterans Day (duly noted at my own blog, with deepest respect); and I wanted to comment for PJ Lifestyle on some favorite movies of mine that focus on servicemen.For the life of me, only two POW movies come to mind.  I know the breadth of the veteran experience cannot possibly be reflected through POW stories alone, but such stories are rife with emotions in conflict; and that can make for some very good movies.  And assuming that you've already seen The Great Escape and The Bridge on the River Kwai, I thought I'd suggest a couple of titles with which you may not be as familiar - including a 1953 classic.  Strangely enough, neither movie was directed by an American, but the lead characters in both movies are American.  Both directors are legends in their own right, too.The older movie is - well - a dramedy of sorts set in a WWII POW camp: Stalag 17, starring the inimitable William Holden with a very young Peter Graves (the original Jim Phelps from Mission: Impossible) - and even a young Donald Pleasance, (better known as Dr. Loomis on the original Halloween).  William Holden went on to win an Oscar for his work on Stalag 17.  And it was well-deserved.Stalag's plot is very much about an escape plan and keeping that plan secret; but it does have several light moments and silly characters, plus incidental comedy resulting from the Allied prisoners plotting to fool their German captors (you'll find more than one parallel with the 60's TV series Hogan's Heroes).  Director Billy Wilder, who was behind some of the most iconic American movies to come out of Hollywood despite hailing from an Austro-Hungarian town that now lies within Polish borders, co-wrote and produced.  You might have already seen several titles by Wilder.  Some Like It Hot, Sabrina, and even darker fare like Double Indemnity and Sunset Boulevard (also starring Holden) were all directed and written by Wilder.  The film is in black and white, but don't let that deter you.  There's not a thing about the movie that feels old.  And you'll love the dialogue.  They don't write them like they used to - and few people had an ear for American dialect like the immigrant Mr. Wilder.The other POW movie I'd like to recommend is a more recent title by a director with a long career: Rescue Dawn, directed by German filmmaker Werner Herzog.  I must confess this is the only movie by Herzog I've ever seen, even though I've been reading about his production exploits for years.  But with films such as Fitzcarraldo (a true story about perhaps the most determined Irish entrepreneur in history) and the documentary Grizzly Man under his belt, I can only conclude that Herzog likes to make movies about people of great passion and commitment who are not easily deterred.  Rescue Dawn is precisely that kind of movie.  And it's also based on a true story: the true adventures of German-American Vietnam vet and POW Dieter Dengler, who was shot down over Vietnam while flying a mission for the U.S. Navy in 1966.Dengler is portrayed by Christian Bale with a humanity that blends the character's vulnerability and love of freedom in a brilliant fashion.  You know that Dengler refuses to be a mere captive from the moment he gets shot down.  And you know he will do something about his capitivity, even if everyone around him dismisses his plans as impossible.  Will he succeed?  Even if he escapes, can he survive the jungle and be located by his U.S. Navy buddies?  Steve Zahn co-stars.  No Chuck Norris-led team of commandos shows up to help on this one.  These guys are on their own.You might be wondering if you can trust a German director to tell an American POW tale, but Herzog knows the material.  He directed a documentary about Dieter Dengler about a decade before this movie was finally released in the states.UPDATE: A couple of corrections: Donald Pleasance did not co-star in Stalag 17.  He was - however - part of the ensemble cast of The Great Escape.  Also, in my prior post on Blade Runner, I stated that the movie was based on the short story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick.  The source material is actually a novel.  Thanks to the commenters who brought these inaccuracies to my attention. class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2011/11/12/two-great-pow-movies-you-might-have-missed/ ]]>

  • 2 - The Scott Brothers and a Tale of Two Remakes
    (”Blade Runner 2049” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Lifestyle Because they compete in the two separate conferences that make up the NFL, Bay Area rivals the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders rarely meet in the regular season. But competitions between the two teams are a near-annual preseason event, in much the same way that exhibition games featuring intra-conference interstate rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles, and the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans are scheduled almost every year.Despite living in the same general area in Northern California, the worldviews of many 49ers/Raiders fans tend to be light years apart. Since at least the early '80s, when Bill Walsh transformed the '49ers into a Super Bowl powerhouse for the next 15 years, Niners fans were known for enjoying sushi, brie and white wine, while Raiders fans have long had a blue collar, Budweiser sort of ethic.Yes, there are exceptions to both rules of course, but you get the picture. I certainly did a decade ago, when 3Com still owned the naming rights to Candlestick Park. I was invited to a press event at the game to announce plans to equip the stadium with an early Wi-Fi system, to be announced at one of the few regular-season match-ups between the 49ers and the Raiders on October 8th, 2000. Unfortunately, once arriving at the stadium, I took a wrong turn on the way into the parking lot.  I had to traverse from the parking area of the Niners' fans to the lot dominated by the Raiders fans, before I found the press entrance. The Niners' fans would happily tell me where I needed to go to park. The Raiders' fans pounded on my car and happily told me where to go. I wasn't all that surprised -- the night before, a local sportscaster said, "It's going to be a physical game on the field -- and a physical game in the parking lot."But that was nothing compared with last night's game, which if initial press reports are true, may take some of the bloom off the effete image of the Niners' fans:In a violent night, two men were shot outside of Candlestick Park on Saturday night right after the San Francisco 49ers played the Oakland Raiders in an NFL preseason game and one man was assaulted inside a stadium restroom.The shootings happened around 8 p.m. after the 49ers’ 17-3 victory.San Francisco police said one victim, a 24-year-old man wearing a T-shirt referring to the 49ers with an obscenity, suffered life-threatening injuries and a 20-year-old man was hospitalized with less serious wounds.SFPD Sgt. Frank Harrell said that the 24-year-old was shot two to four times in the stomach. He drove his truck to a gate and stumbled to security, Harrell said.The other man was shot before that in the parking lot and had superficial face injuries, Harrell said.“We are treating it as separate shootings, but we believe they are related,” Harrell told the Associated Press.Harrell said police took a man in a Raiders jersey off a party bus before it left the stadium and were calling him a suspect.The suspect and the two victims had all attended the game, Harrell said.The shootings followed a violent incident inside of the stadium in which a 26-year-old San Rafael man was assaulted and knocked unconscious in a restroom.Police said he was hospitalized and a suspect was arrested. There was no immediate indication that it was connected to the post-game shootings.Henry Kissinger is often attributed with the saying that “Academic politics are so vicious because the stakes are so small." But unless you're actually a player competing to make the team, there's nothing with smaller stakes than a preseason football game.Ten years ago, NFL Films ran its Lost Treasures series on ESPN, streaming episodes of which are now online at Hulu. Looking at the footage NFL Films shot of mid-1960s-era games when the League's then-nascent film division were still learning their craft,  I was struck by how conservative and dignified most mid-’60s fans looked. There was little or no team merchandise available, so fans arrived to stadiums on Sunday looking like they had just come from church (which many no doubt had), rather than wearing rainbow-colored wigs, Darth Vader Helmets, or cheeseheads. No doubt, the games had their share of hecklers, but it's a safe bet that in general, fans of the past were much more subdued than today’s members of Raiders Nation, the Philadelphia Eagles’ crazed fans, or…as we've seen in recent years, the courtside fans of the NBA’s Detroit Pistons and even at L.A. Dodgers' baseball games.But somehow, and without really thinking consciously about it, society has created the notion that sports arenas are a place for fans to go almost literally insane, rather than merely observe the hometown team in person, cheer for them and then go home celebrating the win, or thinking, we'll get 'em next time.Readers, what happened to the average sports fan? class="pages"> https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2011/8/21/2-shot-1-beaten-49ers-raiders-game/ ]]>

  • Blade Runner 2049 : The Politics of Hollywood Hacks
    The highly stylized 1982 science-fiction film Blade Runner was probably an influence on 2046, Wong Kar-wai’s wondrous, poetic art-movie investigation into a science-fiction writer’s romantic history with several women. Now it appears that 2046 has, in turn, influenced the reboot of remake-crazy Hollywood’s Blade Runner, which appends a random date to its otherwise pointless title: “Blade Runner 2049.” Here, the conflict between human police and replicants (rogue robots who long to be human) gets replayed by K (Ryan Gosling), an officer whose trek into the future’s vast wastelands repeats the same mission — and the same turquoise-tinted miasma -- depicted in
