Title: time between Mag DVD and PDL announcement?
Post by: tpfkabi on February 29, 2004, 10:36:33 PM
i was wondering how soon after Magnolia and/or the DVD that we heard about what would become Punch-Drunk Love??

pretty much all we know is that Jon Brion is involved with his next film's score, right?

*does Barry Egan supermarket dance*

ok. let's see.
Sydney / Hard Eight = 1.5 words
Boogie Nights          = 2 words
Magnolia = 1 word
PUnch-Drunk Love = tricky, i'm guessing hypenation counts as one = 2

6.5 / 4 = 1.625.......rounding to
after much calculation and scientific thought and pontification
i have come to this........

2 words......the title will have 2 words..

:roll:

From the locked thread right above this one about PTA's next project:
Quote from: Onomatopoeia
I think it may have been a bad idea reopening this thread. All it's going to do is lead to more speculation, and it's really silly and stupid watching some people speculate. Just look at all the threads in this forum dedicated to it. There are a few certain things we know about possibilities for PTA's next project:

* He said he'd like to do a musical.
* He said he'd like to do some sort of crazy action/adventure film. This one seems most likely, from what I remember.
* He said he'd like to do something in the vein of Baraka and/or try to get totally away from dialogue and tell a story with music and visuals.
* The Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius rumor is so old now. I hope you're joking, Walrus.

Correct me if I'm wrong or have left anything out. The bottom line is, there is no new information now. Not since the Xixax.com Q&A when he said his next film would be coming around "sooner than you think." So why not lock this, spell it out for people, and wait for there to be something real to report on?

well, the sole reason for the thread was to find out how soon after Magnolia that we heard about PDL or what became it, but it morphed when someone claimed they knew the title.

but we do know that Jon Brion is doing the score and that's not mentioned.....i believe i read somewhere that Paul asked him to do it already

It's almost two years after PDL (sorta).  WHEN will we hear about another project?!

And no one has posted on this board since the 21st.  That's pathetic!

Dude, whenever anyone brings up the idea of PTA's next project anywhere on here all hell seems to break loose. I admit people creating a new thread asking the same question over and over again is pretty annoying and those threads should maybe be locked IF it gets out of hand. But if the subject of his next film is casually brought up in another thread it's not like it's the end of the world or anything. I'd like it if the subject is brought ever few weeks or so even if there's nothing new to discuss just so it will get people talking again. I'm alwasy like that with my favorite directors.

Oh, and just for the record, I kind of have a feeling that PTA will end up going into Kubrick territory time wise. I don't know why, just a hunch. Tarantino will probably end up doing the same thing.

Okay, on a semirelated topic:  is anyone else bothered by the line "Business is very food?"  Because I am!  I can understand "This is Back."  But "food" and "good" aren't even pronounced the same!  What the heck?  It was a cheap line!  PTA couldn't think of anything better?!  Goodness.

Anywho, it makes me love the line even more.

i always wondered that too.
maybe he was only thinking of it visually......and from the look of his films, i believe he is a visual person........as am I
Title: time between Mag DVD and PDL announcement?
Post by: AntiDumbFrogQuestion on June 09, 2004, 11:29:34 PM
maybe Barry was thinking 'these words are spelled the same...but are pronounced different....spelled the same....pronounced different....spelled....different' and it just became something he kept on thinking about and then he said it wrong because he was thinking of the word's look instead of what he was actually saying

fuckit i'm tired of waxing over a fictional character for the day

I think it's just a case of saying something while having something else on your mind.  He is looking at the food, and while he is going through the normal conversation (how are you? how is business? etc).  He really is just looking at the food, uninterested in the social interactions.

I see.  So the true theme of PDL is: Hunger.   :wink:

I do the same thing sometimes.  I just happen to hate and love this one at the same time.
Title: time between Mag DVD and PDL announcement?
Post by: eward on June 16, 2004, 02:00:46 PM
then how do you explain "this is back..."
Title: time between Mag DVD and PDL announcement?
Post by: Link on June 29, 2004, 12:29:31 AM
Well, obviously, Barry had his mind on phone sex and who would be on the other line.  he must have been thinking "I hope this baby's got some back, and I'd like to take a bite out of it" (hence the Hunger theme), and just as he was thinking about a chick's "back," he picks up, and bickety bam, "This is Back."

isn't it frustrating that we hear about every film Darren Aronofsky, Christopher Nolan & Richard Kelly even THINK about directing and not a single word from PTA?

come on.....a title.......a loose plot description........possible cast.........what is the need to be so secretive about it?
Title: time between Mag DVD and PDL announcement?
Post by: AntiDumbFrogQuestion on July 24, 2004, 11:56:35 PM
next year me & my chronies will be trying to make a short film (and VERY short at that) every weekend....I imagine my PTA obsession will make its way into it....
but, so far, thats the closest i'm getting to anything new from him.
A fan's half-assed semi-ripoff.

unless we get that 6-year hiatus we got w/ his buddy Quentin, this here cat still cant wait til a new announcement on PTA   :-D
