I love Souther settings, especially Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha county


Well....in book form. Pretty sure I have not seen a Faulkner novel turned into a movie

There are just some tastes I will never understand, no matter how hard I try.

I'm not a huge fan of prison movies.  There, I said it!

So... I take it you're not into movies about Turkish prisons? Do you like movies about Gladiators?

I can enjoy a southern setting, but the film really has to talk me into it. My gut reaction to a film set in the deep south is to avoid at all costs. (I liked O' Brother, though) Same deal with westerns.

Watched Naked Kiss last night (not the band, the movie!). This is considered a bad movie by some but I thought it pretty freaky and it had some interesting subtext. I'd recommend it if you're into weird-o late noir.

So it's title is less misleading than Naked Lunch?

Naked Kiss is considered a bad movie? It's a film noir by Sam Fuller that got a release on Criterion.  It has some funky moments, but it's pretty great nonetheless.

I think it's the Razzie guy who has it on his 100 worst list. But, yeah, I thought it was pretty great, I'm liking it more and more as I think about it.

The Razzies kind of bug me.  I don't know why they have categories.  They just pick 5 movies and dump on them in every category.  They also pick on things that have reputations for being bad, but aren't actually the worst.

You're not the only one. The Razzies are a joke, and not the good kind.

I get what you are saying, but I always found calling something that attempts to be humourous "a joke", sends me mixed messages.  Still, not a big fan of the razzies.  If anything, an anti-awards show could be used to comment on trends in film making and of the self-congratulatory nature of Hollywood, but from what I see, it is really just saying "wasn't that dumb?"  But yeah, based on the article, it really seems to have more of an internet comment board approach rather than a deeply thought or reasoned approach.

Personally, this is only kind of on topic, but I really like the podcast "How Did This Get Made?"  Yeah, they are comedians mocking bad movies, but often they spend time trying to think what they were going for and June Diane Rafael is often surprisingly defensive in trying to find explanations (though those often, to Hermes "Raises further questions", especially in the Sleepaway Camp episode).  They make distinctions between so-bad-it's good, just plain painful and crazy as fuck but somehow also good (Crank 2, Road House).  They also sometimes have filmmakers and people involved with the movies to politely talk about them (there was a good one with the director of Skyline) and listen to what they were going for, which I like.
