  • Well, as the wise and worldly John Campea once said (and continues to say every chance he can get)…the beauty of film is that it’s subjective!! (DUH).

    All I can say is that if someone had told me that Mr. Nobody was actually produced by the Onion as a parody of precious, whimsical, ‘indie’ flavoured cinema, I probably would’ve appreciated it a hell of a lot more.

  • Kurt

    Well, perhaps you could appreciate Mr. Nobody as Camp. The best kind of Camp is when the directors are deadly serious about the film, not doing a tongue-in-cheek knowing parody.

    I don’t feel this way about the film, but your mileage may vary.

  • Just talking to someone last night about Dial M in 3D. I totally forgot it played here last summer during a local theater’s “vintage 3D movies” showcase. IT played along with Towering Inferno and some others. Wish I had gotten out to a couple of those.

    As for SM2, I’ll give it another look at some point. I know the actual discs are really cheap these days. Too bad they’re not on Netflix Instant :(
