Re: Movie/Cinema Musuems in Europe?

Deutsche Kinematek's Museum of Film and Television (https://www.deutsche-kinemathek.de/en) in Berlin is well worth visiting, if your trip takes you to that corner of the continent. If my memory...

Re: Favorite Akira Kurosawa Crime Film?

I think you could call it a crime film, although its interests lie beyond individual crime and are rather in the domain of wider business and political corruption. It is a revenge drama of sorts,...

Re: Favorite Akira Kurosawa Crime Film?

My favourite Kurosawa crime film is probably High and Low. It may actually be his best film, although I could easily spend a day or two arguing with myself about this.

Both After the Rain and The...

Re: New Tears for Fears album (early 2014)

Thanks for the heads-up!

Re: OK seriously...what was going on in MJ's head in the second part of the B&W vid?

Interesting reading your reactions. I have always simply seen it as a brilliant way for Michael to showcase his dancing skills and the new, edgier style that he develop for Dangerous. I was totally...

Re: Sam Cooke: 1931-1964

For years, I have thought that someone should make a Sam Cooke film that would concentrate on his last 24 hours by doing a Rashomon-like exploration of the various theories of what really happened at...

Re: Actors who turned directior for one film only

Toshiro Mifune directed Legacy of the 500,000 (1963), and nothing else.

Re: Are there any deliberately gay pop songs?

I don't think so. The song rather seems to be about a man's jealousy over the fact that although he and his girlfriend are in a romantic relationship, she nevertheless remains closer to her female...

Re: News for Prince fans: The Family and The Time are back

I'm sorry to hear that Jesse Johnson has left. While I didn't really like his latest album (thanks for the recommendation though hdtv00!), I think he is an important part of the Time/7ven sound. I...

Re: News for Prince fans: The Family and The Time are back

I certainly see where you guys are coming from, and I'm not sure if I agree with Prince's decision, either. But I think that I can understand it.

I obviously cannot speak for the man himself (and...

Re: News for Prince fans: The Family and The Time are back

I can kind of understand his (possible) reasoning here.

The Time albums (apart from the last one) and The Family album were practically Prince albums with only vocal overdubs from the "actual"...

Re: News for Prince fans: The Family and The Time are back

Prince owns all rights to the original names, and wouldn't allow them to be used.

Re: News for Prince fans: The Family and The Time are back

Re: Dersu Uzala - Remastered DVD (Akira Kurosawa, 1975) Artificial Eye

I can sort of confirm this -- that is, Artificial Eye wanting to keep the release a secret. I run a fairly popular Akira Kurosawa website (well, the only English one regularly updated), and tried to...

Re: The Original 7ven (Formerly The Time) "Condensate"

I must offer a differing view here, as I really like Condensate. It's a varied but cohesive album, and I can't find a weak track here.

I'm also happy that they didn't try to do a straight "80s...

Re: Splendent Media acquires rights to around 60 of Kurosawa's works.

My Japanese is shaky, but there have been a couple of articles (http://www.cinematoday.jp/page/N0034845) in the past day which seem to suggest that Kurosawa Production, the production company that...

Re: David Bowie keyboardist Mike Garson releases Bowie-related album

I've been looking forward to this one. I have some of Garson's albums, and really love what he's done with Bowie over the years. The free song that they offer, Let's Dance, is an interesting one. I...

Re: Akira Kurosawa's top 100 films.

Unless my memory fails me, this list was actually put together by Kurosawa's daughter Kazuo after his death, and was based on her discussions with Kurosawa. It includes only one film per director and...

Re: Prince & The Revolution the glory years for Prince?

Re: Those Who Make Tomorrow by Akira Kurosawa?

Well, the status of "Those Who Make Tomorrow" is debatable. He did, after all, work on it. But then again, he worked on quite a number of other films as well that aren't usually considered part of...

Re: Those Who Make Tomorrow by Akira Kurosawa?

Those Who Make Tomorrow wasn't really a Kurosawa film. His studio Toho practically forced him into taking part in the making of the labour union film, and he directed one third of it (the other parts...

Re: most common Movie Forum in the USA?

Actually, it is a plural form of "forum". "Forums" is equally valid in English (cf. Merriam-Webster (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/forum)). Funny things, languages.
