 Post subject: The Television and Movie Recommendation/Discussion Thread!
PostPosted: Sat Mar 30, 2002 1:24 am 
This is the all purpose, tv, movie discussion threads. The shows and the movies need not be GLBT in nature as those are on topic and can have their own threads.

Well.... I haven't seen many (*snif*), but I'd recommend 'Bound'...

Also, in case you're also interested in animation movies, I would recommend the 'Shoujo Kakumei Utena' movie. It's pretty cool.

If you can find them, which I don't know since they were originally cable movies, I'd look out for:

If These Walls Could Talk Part 2 (originally on HBO I think)
The Truth About Jane (Lifetime)

Both are really good.

As for other movies, I'd recommend Gia, But I'm a Cheerleader, and Better Than Chocolate.

Well, one that I like is a made-for-tv movie that airs on Lifetime T.V. called The Truth About Jane. It talks about what it's like to fall in love with a girl, and "come out" to your parents at 16 (or maybe it's 15). Don't want to give away to much, but I think some of the high-school age kittens could maybe relate.

Willow: Maybe, maybe that way.
Tara: We looked that way. And this way, and the other way. She's not out here.
Willow: Where would you go? If you felt lost and alone? Where would you go?
Tara: To you.

Hey all, the new movie "Resident Evil" sounds like it's a good film. Any kittens seen it yet? The reviews seem pretty positive so far.
And the thought of the two girls, Milla Jovovich (yum) and Michelle Rodriguez (yum), kicking monster-butt together, sounds strangely appealing, to me at least....
(really, I don't know what's come over me lately )

Anyway, Michelle is a pretty good actress. (Click here for a pic). She was also in the film 'Girlfight', for those who don't know her.
And I know this is just gossip, but there's been some news about her today. Apparently she's been charged with minor assault following an altercation with the woman she was 'living' with. The article is here at eonline.

And I know this is worse gossip, but reading that article, I couldn't help wondering why a (presumably) rich hollywood star like Michelle would need to share a flat with another chick. Unless...
unless I'm just speculating way too much?

(And yeah, I do know she dated Vin Diesel last year. But Vin is sooo 'last year' )

Actually Michelle isn't that big but anyways alot of young actors/actresses share apartment with someone. I remember Jason Biggs saying he did, and I know a couple times I watch Celebritiy Homes I have seen young actors/actresses share places.

But I'm a Cheerleader - Just generally a cute funny movie.
Better Than Chocolate - Okay I admit there is some things wrong with this movie as Xita pointed out to me one time but I really enjoy it. Also I love Christina Cox, since then I have seen her in every episode of F/X: The Series and she is just so cute with her facial expressions and everything.
Lost and Delirious - Sad movie, I cried but love it, I taped it off and I'm so glad. Plus Piper and Jessica [drool], since then I have bought the movie Stardom cause Jessica Pare is in it.
GIA - I really think Jolie did a great job with her performance and I enjoyed the movie.
Foxfire - I seen it many many years ago and I really love it, Jolie is awesome. Since then I have bought the book by Joyce Carol Oates, it's a very good read and somewhat different from the movie.

Show Me Love - Showcase showed this movie a month ago and I taped it off, I love this movie sooo much. It has subtitles but it's so worth watching I tell all my friends about it. It's realistic and just an amazing movie.

Dear lord, I just read the 'Blade' review, and am still laughing. Is that guy on speed or something?And plus...'chicks stay away from this film'? Puh-lease! I happened to love the blood and gore on the first Blade almost as much as I loved Wesley's abs... (getting hormones under control now).

Interesting recs, and I'll definetly see some of them (my video club is tragic in its lack of variety). I'll add my own 'loved it!' to 'The amazing adventure of two girls in love'.When it came out I saw it twice in the same week.

I can't think of any specifically 'lesbian films' that haven't been mentionned, but I think both "Boys on the Side" and "the color Purple" are worth a look. Yes, I'm a Whoopi fan!

If you are looking for a website that caters exclusively to gay and lesbain themed films, is the place to go..They have a wonderful collection of movies..I liked Whats Cooking that someone mentioned, but needed more Kyra Sedgewick and Julianna Margolis..Would have liked to have seen some steamy love scenes with those two

There is also Losing Chase, with I believe Helen Mirren and Kyra Sedgewick..Kind of bittersweet though.Its funny someone else described Everythings Relative as a lesbian Big Chill lol, thats exactly what it is..

Off topic just a bit, but it is regarding movies..Did anyone see Donnie Darko and can they explain this movie to me lol..I really liked it but just couldnt figure out what happened..Thanks..


 Post subject: Re: All4W/T
PostPosted: Sat Mar 30, 2002 1:53 am 
There is also a movie called Everythings Relative, a sort of lesbian Big Chill...

oh, i loved that movie! it was shot all around smith college (i think), and the great, iconic, queer-friendly massachusetts town of northampton...

I guess the only lesbian movie I've seen is "but i'm a cheerleader." I've seen plenty of feminist movies in french, and I'm told that there's a blistering lesbian sex scene in Mulholland Drive. Of course, there's a world of difference between lesbian sex and "girl-on-girl action." I think you know what I'm talking about.

I'd really like to see Aimee and Jaguar, but the corner video store doesn't carry anything that would be considered queer by any stretch of the imagination. In San Francisco. *scoffs at the irony*

and why am I no longer registered?

PostPosted: Sat Mar 30, 2002 12:00 pm 
Aww. Maybe they're holding back to push future sales of an uncut version on DVD? Sounds like a money making scheme to me.

But, heh. SMG's liplocked with a few more girls than Selma. Remember Grosse Point? Truely hilarious.

Speaking of Cruel Intentions [like the lead in? ;) ], has anyone seen the clip of Aly making fun of SMG's and Selma's Kiss? Priceless. MTV I think.

As for flicks, Boy's Don't Cry and Gia would have to top my list, although High Art had me reaching for the tissues more than once. Radha Mitchell, squee!

It is great to see an overwhelming interest in lesbian flicks......

I have seen most of the ones mentioned and agree to all the comments.....

a couple of films that I don't think have been mentioned are:

-Live Nude Girls...(not a porno)

-Even Cowgirls Get The Blues(Uma Thurman)

-Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her (Calista Flockheart)

-The Other Sister (though no real lesbian action, and not focussed on the issue, still a really good flick)

-The Monkeys Mask

Wolfe Video has a great selectoin, although $30 or $40 per DVD is a lot of money for me. I guess it's worth it for movies like Fucking Amal which I've been looking for forever. I'm thinking about subscribing to one of those DVD rental services where you pay $20/month for all the movies you want. Does anybody have any experience with these kind of places? It seems like a good deal if you rent lots of videos. I don't know how extensive their catalog is, though.

PostPosted: Mon Apr 01, 2002 3:07 am 
Eye of the Beholder. I know, I know. Everybody thinks this movie is terrible. But it is not that bad. And there is an interesting lesbian subtext between Ashley Judd and Genevieve Bujold.

It isn't just a subtext. They are lovers in the original book. And the Joanna Eris character has a another female lover called Becky.

There is another movie version called Mortelle randonnee. Isabelle Adjani played the reading role.

Going through my lesbotheque again (I've got an impressive collection if I may say so myself, and it’s growing almost by the week). Anybody ever seen "Bar Girls" ? Haaaaate it! Or "Go Fish" ? ditto! But there are some really good ones around, like the unsurpassed “Desert Hearts”. Maybe the movie “Orlando” doesn’t really qualify as a lesbian movie, but there are definitely gay elements and it’s one of my favorite movies. Oh, an oldie but goldie would be: “The Killing of Sister George” I know it’s basically awful and full of cliche but always good for a laugh. Sad ending though. That’s the difference I think between the “older” lesbo-movies and the more recent ones; the latter tend to have (not always, I know) a happy ending whereas these oldies invariably show how gays/lesbians/trans/bi’s etc. should be punished for what they are. The movie “The Fox” comes to mind. I like this thread because I like, correction, I love movies and I could go on till the cows come home. Oh, and Marlene Dietrich kissing a woman full on the lips in the movie “Morocco” can’t beat that! Alright, stopping now. (Garfield: I only saw your reply re ‘incredible adventures....’ today. I was transferred to prison cell block H in case you were wondering :grin ). Really stopping now.

It's not so much that I'm always right, it's just that I'm never wrong.....

 Post subject: Kissing Jessica Stein
PostPosted: Mon Apr 01, 2002 2:23 pm 
I think there used to be a thread about this but I can’t find it. So apologies for any redundancy…

I just saw Kissing Jessica Stein this weekend. Which I recommend. Funny, cute, neurotically endearing. Much like the title character. If you want full on lesbian action and riding off into the sunset, perhaps not your movie. But it’s a interesting look at female friendship and self discovery. And VERY well done for a first film. I mean, as much as I loved it for its content, “Go Fish” is a perfect example of a clumsy first film… this is much more professional.

Anyway. Other fantastic lesbian films (not an oxymoron, I swear):

When Night is Falling

All Over Me

High Art

The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love

I just saw "Blow Dry" this weekend and thought that was a cute movie. Natasha Richardson was pretty good I thought!

My all time favourite is "When Night is Falling" mostly because it's such a beautiful movie. The cinematography was amazing!

Um, we went to Panic Room this weekend because, um, well it did have Jodie Foster flouncing around in a revealing tank top for the majority of the film.

Wait no. We saw it for the plot. That's it.

Oooh. I want to see Panic Room (cause, Jodie, yum). But I’m torn cause I’m a big wuss and I already think every bump in the night is someone breaking in to the apartment…

But I might overcome my fears if the tank top flouncing is really really good.

Well, it is tense but not as scary scary as I'd feared. And the flouncing is pretty good. Fincher has a few nice breast cam shots in there as well. Not that I noticed. I was watching it for the acting.

The art house theatres are playing "Kissing Jessica Stein" now and I highly recommend it. There are some incredibly sexy scenes and the film keeps you laughing too. Great flick!

 Post subject: I've got a good one
PostPosted: Mon Apr 01, 2002 4:00 pm 
Okay, so it's not gay at all, but it's a great movie. Donnie Darko. It's out on DVD... but I don't know if it's rentable or not.

I saw it in theaters and bought it as soon as it came out. :)

I can't really say anything else about it, a summary wouldn't do it justice.

Blade II is coming here this weekend! So it looks like I'll get to see it soon. I'm looking forward to it. There is just something about action movies that I absolutely love!

oh, you're gonna love blade II then. actions sequences galore.

After watching it, you wonder though why buffy doesn't retire mr pointy. i'm pretty sure willow could come up with all those gadget thingies like blade uses if she wanted to.
