An interesting failure

5 years ago at Feb 7 16:28
Back in 1997, Gus Van Sant scored his biggest box-office hit with ‘Good Will Hunting’. Not only was this movie a success for Van Sant, it meant at last a major breakthrough for Matt Damon and Ben Affleck who are pretty much Hollywood royalties nowadays (ok, the journey was pretty tortuous for Affleck but he got there eventually, didn’t he?). Anyway, 5 years later, Gus Van Sant and Matt Damo... read more

I really, really wanted to like this movie, but holy hell, it was wrist-slicingly boring. I only gave it 1/2 a star because I like Casey Affleck.

Film Review of Gerry (2002)

1 year, 8 months ago at Jun 16 10:34
A pair of young male friends, who've travelled from the city, set out upon a long hiking trip through the desert in the goal of reaching a certain destination, only to find that their trip has gradually prolonged itself, realizing they've become completely lost, devoid of physical energy, and on the verge of death.

"April 4 "But we didn't see anything that looked the same and we could have just Gerried off in all these different directions." "Yeah, but we could have bailed early, you know, we could have just bai... we ma... we... I mean, there were so many just different Gerries along the way..." *Sigh* I never learn my lesson with these kind of movies do I? I hate movies where nothing of substance happens, but somehow I keep watching them anyways. The only reason I watched this is because Gus Van Sant "

Film Review of Gerry (2002)

“A pair of young male friends, who've travelled from the city, set out upon a long hiking trip through the desert in the goal of reaching a certain destination, only to find that their trip has gradually prolonged itself, realizing they've become completely lost, devoid of physical energy, and on the verge of death.

Gerry is certainly not for everybody. It features a slow pace, very little dialogue, heaps of consistent, almost endless long-take shots, and highly atmospheric music. Gus Van Sant's direction is also greatly apparent judging from the overall visual look of the film. On a stylistic level, the film is incredibly experimental, whereas thematically, it's rich in ambiguity and encourages personal interpretation from the audience.

Therefore the film's intent is n” read more

30 Movies That'll Never Be Remade (30 movies items)

"Why It’ll Never Be Remade: As a film with one of the most commercially-unfriendly premises you could imagine, we’re guessing there aren’t many studios clamouring to revisit this one. As occasionally striking as the scenery is in Gus Van Sant’s desert-set walkabout, not a lot happens over quite a lot of time! Even if you were patient enough to see it through the first time around, surely there wouldn’t be many punters up for a second go! If They Have To Do It: They should cast even big"

underrated & overrated movies from 2000 to 2011 (24 movies items)

"It's not an easy film, and it's not for everybody, I'll give you that! But "Gerry" is my favorite movie in Gus Van Sant 'time-stretching' trilogy (that includes the extremely - but not THAT - good "Elephant", and the horrible "Last Days"). This is a psycho-philosophical journey, if you stick with it, it is capable of literally absorbing you. Nothing's left to chances, not even the alienating ending, that I found perfect (but that's, for sure, very conceptual, like the all movie is). Again: not"

Interesting failures (25 movies items)

" Note: The whole movie you just have Matt Damon and Casey Affleck wandering in a desert, talking about everyday stuff. It may sound lame but I found it rather fascinating. Too bad, the ending didn't work for me at all... Why should you watch it anyway? Come one! Matt Damon and Casey Affleck are 2 of the most exciting actors right now and Gus van Sant knows how to direct a movie. If you don't mind when a movie goes experimental, you should definitely check this one out."

An interesting failure

“Back in 1997, Gus Van Sant scored his biggest box-office hit with ‘Good Will Hunting’. Not only was this movie a success for Van Sant, it meant at last a major breakthrough for Matt Damon and Ben Affleck who are pretty much Hollywood royalties nowadays (ok, the journey was pretty tortuous for Affleck but he got there eventually, didn’t he?). Anyway, 5 years later, Gus Van Sant and Matt Damon were reunited and this time, Ben’s little brother, Casey Affleck, joined the party. Personally, I never really cared for Van Sant’s more commercial outings but this flick definitely belonged to his more experimental work and that was most welcome. Indeed, in the whole movie, you just have Matt Damon and Casey Affleck wandering in a desert, talking about everyday stuff. It may sound lame but ” read more
