Goes to show how out of touch the Oscars are/were/will always be.



I threw my remote at the TV when they announced that fuck head Sean Penn won for one of the most over fucking glorified bloated movies in years!

Penn always rubbed me the wrong way and that night, (which I think he made the smarmy remarke back to Chris Rock about his joke about Jude Law being in like every movie that was out at the time.. that just irked me even more) he just made me out right dislike him.. Where the fuck dose spicoli get off!

I lost even more respect for the academy that year. ( I lost respect for them when they awarded Gladiator the best pic of the year when I thought it wasnt, and Giving the best oscar to Denzel for fucking training day!) and that Murray will probably not be nominated again.

Shame, shame indeed

I was very disappointed with this Oscar result as well. I was really praying for Murray, I thought he was brilliant in Translation.

I remember reading some article about the 2004 (?) Oscars, and the writer said something along the lines of "Bill Murray sets back women's progress by referring to Sofia Coppola as a girl." See, I don't think he meant anything bad by it, it's just his sort of frank (and I guess not PC) way of speaking.


I love Murray. The thing with "Lost in translation" is that I see the movie as being a Sofia Coppola biopic... She's in Japan with husband Jonze, he's busy with the Jackass guys making the Jackass movie, she bumps into Bill "fucking" Murray. So, calling her a girl was a continuation of thier little story...

For me Bill "Fucking" Murray was at his best in "Broken Flowers", THAT was the movie he should have won an oscar for.

I'm sure he's got plenty of years left in him yet, and "The Life Aquatic" was made tolerable solely for his presence alone.

He really is the man, Peter Venkman, indeed any of the "Ghostbusters" are such finely written and performed characters that the film may as well as been some kind of pychiatry of man movie.

I actually liked The Life Aquatic more than Rushmore or The Royal Tannenbaums. But that's just me.

And yes, his performance in Broken Flowers was amazing.

Well again, why do I constantly say that I modelled myself on Bill Murray AND the movie character that deep down I honestly feel like I am, or WAS, is Peter Venkman?

Well, it's more a personal film I think. This is a journey of one man's self destructiveness, obsession, and loneliness. It may seem to tangent, but this is a rare time in a film that I would agree that the off route journeys that seem to happen here, do actually echo such off directions that we people do take when we go on similar journeys, oddyses, searches. Well I do anyway. I mean, if you think I'm talking sh*t, why do you think that MY Shark movies are still not finished after 4 years working on them!?!??!

I mean, what the heck am I doing here with you lot?

Kinda got me thinking... I wonder what "About Schmidt" would have been like with Murray instead of Nicholson. I love Nicholson in it all ready and wouldn't change it for the world, but hell, it makes for a great "what if?". Ah... for a parallel universe machine...

I dug on The Razor's Edge, Kirk.

In it's own way, the roll fited apon him as well as any other he's had, I think.

From the impression you build of people of the years, it's actually how I kinda imagine him to be in reality, to a degree...

It's probably nothing remotely close, but there you go.


I remember most the images of him on the boat in India, or crossing over the bridge framed by a golden Tibet, with him in the crumpled, linen suit...

For me at least, just as abiding as the Ghostbusters protonpack, Quick Change clown get up, the Team Zisou beanie, Lost in translation whisky and silk dressing gow, or the Broken Flowers tracksuit.

I felt at times, it kinda rushed through the "journey" aspects, but it would have been hard to dwell apon them, in retrospect. It was a journey afterall, one that took years to live through, and had to be distilled in the telling.

In essence, I think it was much me wanting to spend more time with the the character/Murray and the nature of the story itself, too. With these kind of esoteric films, even despite myself, I sometimes find there's always that vague illusion that there's something (an answer to Life the Universe and Everything?), just around the corner for me, too...

It's kinda what invests you in them, I think.

Overall, I liked the atmohsphere of the thing very much, felt like it got made with some of that leftover 70's existentialist money that must of been lying around before everyone starting buying cartoon toys and cell phones and crap.

Interesting that the films of his career, in sentiment at least, bookend eachother the way they do.

Makes you wonder if he really wanted to make all those that he made inbetween, at all... how invested he is/was in those characters, as exquisately played as some of them are...


EDIT:
And randomly, I'm an easy for mark for such things, but reading up, I saw the book jacket and it just kinda made me smile a Kitschy smile...

I started to watch 'What About Bob' last night but I had to cut it short as I was heading out the door. I found it rather entertaining. Richard Dreyfuss plays a psychiatrist on vacation with his family. Murray, one of his patients, follows his Dr. to his vacation home.

Anyone else seen this flick? I'm likely gonna add it to my movie queue as I want to see how it ends.

Maybe all you guys already know about this, but it's news to me and I didn't hear it from any of you.

Wow, I thought that was going to turn out to be a joke video, like the ones with the ghosts popping out and screaming at the end. But nope, it seems legit, and the line makes sense. Coppola could have turned up the volume and it still would have been a perfectly poignant scene. I like it.

WOW! What an ear or eye or even can opener that was!!!!

I thought it was gonna be some kinda joke too! But man, it all sorta makes sense doesn't it? To be frank, they could still be putting any kind of line in there and if I wasn't so open minded I'd believe them 100%, but still, I'll go along with the interpretation to an extent. The last line I can actually make out the clearest though, anything before that, I still can't make out that well, subtitles or not.


So, the line after all our speculation on what it could be, IS satisfactory. It is poignant, it is important, and it is the hopeful one that we would all have liked or imagined. So it sorta lives up to our imaginations then, which is nice.

On the other hand is this....

1. Should it have just been allowed to be heard by us and not muffled as it was?

2. Do we STILL, at the end of the day, prefer the line to remain a mystery, and let our own minds come up with the story, meaning and interpretation of it?

3. Even if we did, are you guys still happy with this line? Does it top what you thought it was? Or not? Or is on a par with what you speculated or concluded?

I thought the ending was sophomoric. Bad end to an otherwise good film.
On the other hand...It would've been less talked about had she been heard.
But that could just be the hype talking.

I like that you can't really hear what Bill Murray is saying, but at the same time I would like to think that Coppola didn't just put an unintelligible whisper because she couldn't think of a good line to end the movie with. The movie hasn't changed at all for me, now that there is a line to go with that moment. Bill could pretty much say anything and I'd think its gold. He just cannot deliver a flat line. He could tell Scarlett that he's looking forward to looking at her vag, and I'd still think it poignant.

Seeing as I just looked at the Batman thread and then at this one, it reminded me of a vague rumour that I SWORE I heard for real.....





When the first Burton Batman was being planned, I SWEAR they suggest Bill Murray for Bruce Wayne. Anyone know of this rumour?

Also another casting rumour I heard.... Bill Murray was considered or even APPROACHED to star in Philedelphia - in Denzel Washington's part - but he turned it down.

Anyone comment on these stories?!

I believe the Batman rumur is true and that Bill Murray was Burton's first choice for the role. And people thought it was weird with Keaton in the role... just imagine how different it would have been with Nicholson vs Murray?

I am trying to visualize this scenario, and keep coming up with Venkman trying to get in chick's pants with his 'crime fighting' tales. I just can't get Ghostbusters out of my damned head:

BatMurray: The Movie wrote:Alfred: I have worked in the private sector, Mr. Wayne; they expect results. And how do you propose we pay for all of this"

Bruce Wayne: I don't know (swigs from whiskey bottle, slowly shaking his head). I don't know

The Murray/Batman thing has now fuckled me for life; every time I see Bill in a movie, I will not be able to follow the plot. Rather, I will be picturing him delivering his lines in Adam West's Bat-Suit.

On the other side of the coin, I know I will be trying to focus on TDK, and will be mentally replacing Bale with Murray throughout the film.

Oh, dear lord, so many things have been hilariously ruined by this premise. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Burton and Murray should do a DKR-era standalone flick. It would be a rare circumstance where fans would embrace a return to the Burton/Schumacher universe. Get Sam Hamm to write the script. Make it in the vein of ROCKY BALBOA, RAMBO, LFODH, or CRYSTAL SKULL, but mainly ROCKY BALBOA: revisiting a great character years after a failed sequel for one last hurrah and a chance at redemption.

Woeful. Looks more like sloth than Bill Murray!

I think someone has been playing a game of pin the eye on the funnyman.


That is bad.

I do not understand why TBS is not playing this all day like they do A Christmas Story. That would be very funny...

That would make one hell of a final project in a CGI class. Kaga, make it happen.

I'll bet Cha-Ka could do it in an hour.

I said the same thing out loud when this was on at my apartment last night!

Come to think of it, I say the same thing every year... :shock:

who would have thought 30 yrs ago that Murray would the one to come out of the SNL bunch and go on to not only make the most successful comedies, outdo any of his peers from the show as a "serious' actor AND become the icon that he is today.

BATMAN

Postby TheButcher on Wed Oct 22, 2008 7:59 am

From yahoo: Murray missed out on Batman role
Hollywood star Bill Murray missed out on the chance to play Batman in the 1989 original superhero movie - when he was snubbed in favour of Michael Keaton.
The Groundhog Day actor was one of the frontrunners to play the Caped Crusader, when movie bosses wanted to create a big screen replica of the camp 1960s TV version starring Adam West.

But Murray was sidelined once gothic director Tim Burton took the helm of the movie - and brought in his Beetlejuice charge Keaton.

However, Murray concedes he's not angry about the move, because he's a huge fan of Keaton's portrayal of the billionaire crimefighter.

He tells MTV.com, "I would have been a fine Batman. You know, there have been a number of Batmen. I like them... I thought Mike Keaton did a great job as Batman. It's obviously - it's a great role."

Other actors to play the part since Keaton include Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale.

So I'm watching The Man Who Knew Too Little on TV right now.

Such hilarious chuckles! Shows one of the Bill Murray appeals is hat he can be a total moron or a simpleton who just has no idea or personal involvement in the crap that goes on around him, but just seems to coast through life or a situation and get away with it. Check this and Peter Venkman, even Groundhog Day on certain levels.

This is him being refreshing and angst relief. Maybe we all should lighten up and try being like these guys for a day, see what happens.

Imagine if John Belushi were still alive? how much difference would one have made on the other's career? Maybe none by now, but before? I think Murray took some parts that Belushi would otherwise have had? Like Peter Venkman? Who would you have preferred?

Also going back to Batman, I think Murray was also offered the part of Denzel Washington's role in Philidelphia? Anyone confirm all this? I swear there were other roles that he was up for but didn't get for whatever reason. Can't remember what they were now.
