Title: What about se7en?
Post by: JoeManuel on November 17, 2006, 03:46:55 PM
I really think there's some really good riffs to be laid in David Fincher's Se7en. Just want to see Brad Pitt riffed on.

As far as Brad Pitt movies go, I'd have to say something more along the lines of The Mexican or Mr & Mrs Smith.

The Ocean's movies have a level of smugness that are calling for them both to be riffed.  Maybe that could be a two-fer release in time for next summer's Ocean's Thirteen?  Don't get me wrong, I actually enjoyed both Ocean's films.  They just seem to be ripe for riffing.

I was specifically thinking of Se7en as something that shouldn't be riffed the other day. Riffing movies that depend heavily on atmosphere is kind of unfair anyway, and there isn't a lot of cheese in that one to hold on to. It's not like there aren't some perfectly riffable Fincher movies out there anyway- Fight Club's subtle but absurd sense of humor might make it almost too easy to make fun of, but Alien3 and Panic Room would work just fine.

If there was a David Fincher movie to be riffed, it should be panic room then.

I'd say The Game would be his most riffable.

Having a disgusting reanimated corpse as your main character is just asking for it.

You can chock Se7en up as one of the few movies that will NEVER be riffed.

Far too graphic and disturbing, as Zap Rowsdower Jr. pointed out...


Oceans 11, on the other hand...  ;D

Seriously, how could you possibly make fun of a hooker being killed with a razor blade phallus.

The original with the Rat Pack was a million times better than the remake.

Ocean's 11 and Panic Room are both great ideas!

...The Mexican or Mr & Mrs Smith.

Mr & Mrs Smith is a great suggestion. this was as over the top as roadhouse. took itself wayyy to seriously, tried to be way too hip, GOOFY chemistry between pitt & jolie,popular movie so it's easily accessible, etc.

No 12 Monkeys love? Would kill two birds with one stone: a Brad Pitt movie and another Willis movie.

Somewhere on the Internets I read this very long discourse on why 12 Monkeys was the most perfect time travel movie made (to date.) They picked apart all other time travel movies on that site, but 12 Monkeys only caused one small paradox.

I'm almost sure you're talking about this site:

I ran into the same site when trying to figure out Donnie Darko.

That site is good, but it takes too many liberties when analyzing a story.  The analysis on 12 Monkeys is inaccurate because it assumes an alterable timeline when the movie specifically states that time cannot be  changed.  He has an appendum that states that an unalterable timeline is impossible since it violates the grandfather paradox.  While the time theory used is flawed, the execution and adherence to it is quite startling.  I love the movie because it's an amazing accomplishment of writing and directing.

Se7en, no, can't see it. But 12 Monkeys, yeah that could be interesting. I like both, but I just don't think Se7en would be suitable.

Come on...the original was GREAT. It didn't have to be remade.

I can't picture it, but I don't regard Gilliam art design as cheesy. It might be riffable, but I know I couldn't do it.
