Bill Murray birthday thread.

The place where no good punk-asses and aimless hipsters come to discuss a rather lousy comic.

Oh, I thought you were moving. Hope you're feeling better.

Uh... I mean, Go Bill Murray!

I got that to contend with to, but the actual move is not till next week. Don't know how much updating I'm gonna get to, but we'll see.

I'm always amazed with how quiet that movie is. Coppolla is like Anderson in that she has wonderful soundtracks, but she uses music to a minimum here, letting the scenes speak for themselves. It's almost objective. Bill Murray performs much the same way, with great restraint. When I become rich and famous and old I'll probably be much the same way.

I think that's everyone's hope.

Get old and refined then hit on hot twenty year olds. :D

Ms. Coppalla does have great soundtracks. She knows how weave everything together into sensory experience, and she also knows how to get the right musicians involved.

The objectivity of the movie is what makes it so engrossing. It's very natural script with situations people can relate to, and that draws people in. The audience can believe that the characters are real and can live that fantasy through them.

Kind of belated, but here's a bad photoshop of Bill with some cheesecake.

Also I think his performance in KingPin deserves a mention. He doesn't play many villians.

He was quite amazing in Kingpin. Was that before or after Rushmore?

I hate Kingpin. Maybe I need to see it again with new eyes.

You kind of have to be in the mood for it. It's pretty mean.

Well, I was much younger when I first saw it, and I was also doing Bio homework at the same time. Now that I think about that awful fight scene in the parking lot, I think I may actually like it. I'll give it another go sometime in the near future.

I make no promises, but it's pretty fucking hilarious. Woody Harrelson's such a skeezy scumbag and Bill Murray's such an asshole.

I guess I'll try it again. The drinking of bull semen from a bucket was a huge turn off. But that fight scene in the parking lot seems funnier and funnier, every single time I think about it.

That is one of the lower jokes in the movie, but the rest pretty funny.

"Sometimes a bowler just has to face the music."
Roy and Ernie open the doors to the car with Roy getting out.
"And it looks like that bowler is going to be you Roy."
Ernie closes his door and drives off leaving Roy to get beaten up by the angry crowd.
