THE PREPOSTEROUS BOLLOX OF THE SITUATION

A collection of stuff, things, nonsense, rants, raves, pretties, sillies, and gee-gaws from Rev. Hugo Nebula, Ordained Minister of the Church of the SubGenius. (And boobs. Sometimes there are boobs. Just like in real life.) Thank you for reading.

"One of the reasons we started The Culture Counter was to show people works of art we really love. This is easy when these works are universally acclaimed, but for us it is more interesting to honor works that polarized critics and audiences in the past. One of the films that split the critics the most the last couple of years was Darren Aronofsky’s 2006 film The Fountain, with a Rotten Tomato score of 51%, leaving a blot on Aronofsky’s otherwise stellar career. But is this justified?”

1. Movie you love with a passion.

  • First thought was to write in Star Wars, but it’s such an obvious answer, and - in all honesty - I’d have to say that the passion (and by God, once it was a white-hot, fiery passion) has dimmed over the last few years for reasons that should be obvious.

    So, I may have to go with something like Blade Runner or Repo Man. Or The Big Lebowski. Something that rewards in different ways each time you watch it.

    No, scrap that - The Fountain.

2. Movie you vow to never watch.

  • The Sound of Music. I’ve made it this far, it would be a shame to fail now.

3. Movie that literally left you speechless.

  • Fight Club. It had passed me by in the cinema, and I was lent it - forcefully - by a friend, in that “Man, you have got to fucking watch this!” fashion.

    What a film. I watched it twice in a row, gave it back with great thanks and then bought my own copy on DVD that same night. 

4. Movie you always recommend.

  • Gremlins. You can’t go wrong recommending Gremlins. Or Back To The Future.

5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.

  • I watched Mammoth, starring Summer Glau. For which she must also owe me dinner.

6. Actor/actress you don’t get the appeal for.

  • Robert DeNiro. I just can’t see it. He has the same tics and mannerisms for every role he plays. That’s not acting.

7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you’d love to meet.

  • Robert Mitchum.

8. Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!)

 

9. Dream cast.

  • Philip Seymour Hoffman, Penelope Cruz, Richard Dreyfuss and Winona Ryder.

10. Favorite actor pairing.

  • Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. 

11. Favorite movie setting.

  • Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.

12. Favorite decade for movies.

  • The Seventies. Before it all went wrong.

13. Chick flick or action movie?

  • Action movie, although I have been known to watch the occasional chick flick. Depends on the chick.

14. Hero, villain or anti-hero?

  • Anti-hero.

15. Black and white or color?

  • Don’t mind. Great love for black and white movies, though.
