Well supposedly ghostboi was inspired by blocking out scenes with Willow figures.

So, yeah, Willow

Hopefully this will be his first film that I like.

The guy hasn't missed yet, for my money.

I love some of his films more than others, but they're all solid (in my opinion).

A Ghost Story did nothing for me. That dinner party monologue was the worst. The other 2 were fine but forgettable IMO.

St. Nick isn't some Dirk Diggler Story or My Best Friend's Birthday scenario. it's a legitimate movie of his

Quote
Lowery's first feature film, St. Nick, which follows two runaway children abandoned by their guardians, premiered at the 2009 South by Southwest festival

this conversation is hot air and it's not the only conversation that leaves St. Nick out but about that I'm like whatever

Haven't seen St. Nick, but I'm keen to. Not sure it's available in the UK but will track it down.

A Ghost Story is his best film yet in my opinion. A low-key masterpiece. Agree to disagree I guess. It feels like The Green Knight might be a return to that vein of more personal filmmaking. Insomuch that it's probably nothing like what people are expecting.

For those who missed the Sundance Collab event that was mentioned earlier - you can watch the recording of the event (you need an account but it's free to sign up). I'm maybe stating the obvious here, but I'm doing so because it was an inspiring session and worth watching:

What a swell fella.

I am really looking forward to this and must make it my first trip back to the big screen.

Miss you movies. Thank you GB.

And thank you J!

it's a lot of fun to read. totally worth it. as something of a literary person myself, you know, when I heard about this, I was like okay nice. if I were permitted to daydream aloud in the same way I'd like to do The Golden Ass. deadpan anything happens act natural. it's cool

it pretty much can't not work. this can't miss, for a certain crowd I suppose. open eyes/open heart/culture people. what I'll next learn is the tone of the movie, which maybe the trailer demonstrates, but I haven't watched the trailer. I look forward to encountering the pitch of the movie

talked about this today and can chat about a specific thing that relates to the entire narrative, so it's in spoiler

Spoiler: ShowHide
this is the general story: King Arthur and his round table are the dopest thing anyone has heard of since the romans, so a green knight shows up to challenge their manhood. they can't be too afraid to accept it so Sir Gawain beheads the knight who picks up his head and leaves, the condition being that Sir Gawain will be beheaded within a year. Sir Gawain asks the green knight who he is and he is the Green Chapel Knight, come find him when the time is right. the time becomes right so Sir Gawain goes in search of him, undergoing severe trails along his way that are easy for him because he's Sir Fucking Gawain, no big deal. except when he sees a castle he's like, okay nice, better stop here. he's in the castle for three days and the lord of the castle is nice and goes hunting, leaves Sir Gawain behind with his wife who tries to seduce him. she is unable to fully seduce him but he does accept her girdle because she says that no one will kill him if he wears it. Sir Gawain goes to the nearby chapel on the appropriate day and, surprise, the lord of the castle and the green knight are the same, and this whole thing was cooked by the lady, Morgan Le Fey, "Morgan the goddess," who knows some of Merlin's skills. because Sir Gawain was tricked into wearing the girdle he failed a little, and everyone is human

Morgan Le Fey is the mastermind of the operation, which Lowery refers to, and her revelation comes at the end of the story, Lowery makes it sound as if he wishes he had shaped the movie around that fact. but I'm still not sure what the movie will be like and Lowery is essentially self-critical in his foreward

Regal Crown Club News sent out an e-mail this week purely to announce Tickets were on sale, so that was pretty cool. I haven't been to the theater since I saw Sonic the Hedgehog/Harley Quinn.

All You Shall See Is Green
The Game Begins July 30
An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend. The Green Knight, from visionary filmmaker David Lowery, is a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table. Tickets now on sale.
