Blessed Assurance
I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question but I saw in the past few months (likely on DVD) a sort of indie movie where they kept playing this old-fashioned version of the hymn "Blessed Assurance" with a high pitched, old-timey voice. I feel like it may have been used ironically or menacingly. It's driving me crazy that I can't think of it.

The only soundtrack I could find with it on was Places in the Heart but that's not the movie I was thinking of and it's not the version I'm looking for.

Hello I hope this is allowed.


I have a new community for the film Let The Right One In. Feel free to post icons, reviews, etc.

Also I don't know why I didn't join this comm before. I'm always trying to see more indie films.

King of Kong Review and Director Interview

King of Kong-Fist Full of Quarters is the good vs. evil tale of the world champions of Donkey Kong: Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe. These characters couldn't have been made up better and if they were fictional, if this weren't a documentary, the film would be unbelievable.

In 1982, Life Magazine did a story on the world's best video gamers at the time. In that picture was Billy Mitchell, the champion of Centipede, Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong Jr. It was the beginning of Billy's rise to fame. After a scandal rocked the video game world, Walter Day decided he would start Twin Galaxies, the official score keepers for video games. It also became headquarters for the Billy Mitchell Cult. The employees, even Day himself, worship Billy Mitchell with a frightening reverence. Their reverence for Billy makes them absolutely unable to verify a score when newbie Steve Wiebe shatters his record.

Rest of the Review

Seth Gordon, director of documentary film King of Kong: Fist Full of Quarters, a David vs Goliath documentary about two men competing for champion rights to the classic arcade game Donkey Kong, opened up about his new film, its process and his future.

"My favorite place is Fun Spot [arcade in King of Kong]. Family reunions were in New Hampshire. I burn in the sun, so my family would leave me at Fun Spot. It is a family place and they would give tokens for grades. I would think about it all year. I met Steve Wiebe [one of the main characters in the movie] four days after they had been in his garage. At first I thought he was too vanilla but after I met all the players, I wanted to do the project. It took a year and a half."

the press on film
I'm trying to make a list of movies that deal with the press, reporters, newsrooms, the power of the press... Newspapers.
It's for my roommate. I'm trying to bring him something beyond The Paper or I Love Trouble.
I know there are great movies on the subject and I haven't maybe given the matter much thought or research but below is the list of movies I've come up with.
Do you have any other ideas?

the press on film: a baker's dozenCollapse )

There are obviously a hundred movies I'm missing. The Insider, maybe?
He's an aspiring newspaper man and I feel like he has an appreciation for realistic depictions of newsrooms and investigative reporters and what-not. We saw Blood Diamond and it evoked from him a very compelling speech about the power to change the world with journalism.
Oh yeah. And I included La dolce vita here but I haven't yet convinced him of the error of his ways regarding his aversion to subtitled films...

ATHFCMFT - A dreadful movie could do so much for the world!
I'm not supposed to post this until Friday but I'll do it just for you! Shh. Keep it on the DL.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (ATHFCMFT) is a cinematic blessing that will surely lead to better film making in the future. Thank you writer and directors Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis for creating a movie that opens the way for the next great novel.
Wanna know how this movie makes a better world? I'll tell you.Collapse )

After The Wedding - A+ Movie

After the Wedding (Efter bylluppet) is the marvelously subtle story about the value of family, the decisions we make and the decisions people make for us. It beautifully spins a story of the lengths people will go for who they love and how four people find their worth.
Fantastic MovieCollapse )
