The film is available on HBO Go (at least it was about two months ago when I watched it).

Love all those you mentioned. Take Me to Your Leader may just have DOOM's best beats. Although I wish he would rap more on it - he's probably my favorite MC when things like flow, delivery and lyrics are considered. For Public Enemy I think I'll always go with It Takes a Nation... which I feel has their strongest songs, even though Fear is kind of a bigger album in scope. If I have one minor complaint about Enemy it would be that Chuck D, while a great lyricist, kind of falls short as a rapper for me. I think his rhymes are kind of rudimentary and rarely keep me interested. Maybe he thought that was necessary for the message to be properly understood, but I'd much rather listen to Rakim out of his contemporaries (even Ice Cube) who runs circles around Chuck. Not to mention the 90s rappers who took MC-ing to a new level.

I've been playing Pete Townshend's Empty Glass a lot lately. Beautiful forgotten record. Kind of Who by Numbers Vol. 2.

Either is dull.

Mari, that's just plain rude. It says more about you than it does about Ovi's films.      

Yeah, I'll take negative criticism if the person actually takes the time to point out ways in which I could improve. But short, dismissive lines like that is something that I have no use for. Life is too short to actually pay attention to things like that.

Mari, that's just plain rude. It says more about you than it does about Ovi's films. But thanks for alerting me to this new one. I managed to miss it for some reason.

I don't think it's dull at all! Less is more might be a better way of describing it. It's slow-moving but that's a positive quality that fits the story-line. I can't relate to that directly but I can relate to the changing moods of Dreams. The music is cool too--and well-chosen. And any film with Revolution in the Head in it is OK by me. Tongue  (I believe I also saw my favourite Genesis album in there too.) There's not much I can add to what commenter Jeff A says--he sums it up to perfection.

Kudos, Ovi. This deserves a wider audience. I'll link it at my "hobby" forum and at PSF when I get back. Oh, and I can link it at Hoffman too. Keep up the good work!  Smiley      

Thanks, man! I was curious about what you were gonna say about it. Your comment has put a smile on my face.  Grin

I wonder whether Ovi still looks in here from time to time?

JK, have you listened to anything by OutKast? Been playing them a lot since I last posted here. Andre 3000 and Big Boi kind of remind me of Lennon and McCartney in the way they kind of have opposing personalities - Andre is the erratic, artsy one and Big Boi the old-school gangsta, though technically brilliant . Of course you must include some overlap in that generalization. But at their best, before they grew apart they really seemed to complement each other and made some masterpiece albums that went beyond what people thought hip-hop to be at the time. Here are some songs:

Great idea!

Here's one of my favourite moments in a film. The video is good quality except for the sounds of someone turning up the volume in the first fifteen seconds:

Thanks, Choc. Smiley

That's one brilliant sequence there! 

Masterpiece of a movie. Really, really blew me away.

11  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: What are you watching now?/Favourite Movie of the Moment on: December 21, 2018, 03:32:51 AM
Alfonso Cuaron's Roma which has been making waves this year. I found it tedious and boring, despite a few really nice moments. Sorry, don't get the hype.

Very old thread I know, but a new biopic about Nico called Nico, 1988 came out last year. I found it great.
20  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Jazz on: December 06, 2018, 11:44:24 AM
Do you jazz fans think that the genre can be enjoyed as much without a musical theory knowledge?
21  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Songs you are obsessing over. on: December 03, 2018, 06:01:01 AM
All the songs on The Monkees' Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. What a perfect album. As each song comes on I keep thinking "this is definitely the best one on the album".
22  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Jazz on: December 03, 2018, 05:59:27 AM
Got into Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity and it just blew me away. One of the most intense albums I've ever heard.

I listened to it last night and contrary to expectations thoroughly enjoyed it. Some brilliant playing, particularly Gary Peacock on bass. Wow. Thanks for the tip, Ovi. Smiley

Glad you liked it, man.
23  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Drummers on: December 03, 2018, 05:58:09 AM
+1 for Stewart Copeland. Been playing all the Police albums a lot lately.

Got into Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity and it just blew me away. One of the most intense albums I've ever heard. And Art Blakey's Moanin' is another great one.
25  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / The Sandbox / Re: So what did we all do today? on: August 05, 2018, 10:11:47 AM
Saw Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Awful.

sh*t, wrong thread. Meant to post this in the films one.
