I bet she discreetly donated something wonderful somewhere but just to be sure it's a real charity, she's currently hiding somewhere in the shipment with a knife, a calculator, and a bottle of water. She'll figure it out.

the leaner & meaner jodie a la panic room doesn't thrill me that much. isn't that why we have ashley judd? the last movie i really liked was little man tate. although i did like contact too.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 15:18 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm impressed with the way she has reinvented herself as an action hero at an age when many women would be complaining that they can't get good roles anymore. Not that I liked Flightplan one bit, but Panic Room was pretty good.

Contact was okay until the end. The end was awful.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Saturday, 8 April 2006 15:20 (fifteen years ago) link

My husband wuvs her. I'm kind of meh about her, myself.

I liked Panic Room, but I don't think her involvement made it any better/worse than it would have been with anyone else similar. Much the same as most of the rest of her films, really.

BUTT IS THE LONELIEST NUMBER (Adrian Langston), Saturday, 8 April 2006 15:37 (fifteen years ago) link

I loved Contact. There are lots of movies I haven't seen on that list.
In Panic Room I never understood why she didn't fit her mouth to that littlwe hole in the outside wall and scream nonstop. I guess because Jodie DOESN'T SCREAM.

We just saw Inside Man in the most uncomfortable theater in the world. People, if you're wondering why you can't fill the seats, TRY SITTING IN THEM YOURSELVES.
Great movie, though.

I find J.F's face, with her fine bones and tense jaw, so totally watchable, and Sigourney Weaver's not. Strange, because they have a similar affect. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Alien movies, so it's not across-the-board Sigourney-hate. And there's that one where she's the agoraphobic profiler, and Harry Connick is EVIL. So scary!
Off-topic. I'm sure there's a Sigourney thread. SORRY, hall-monitors!

Beth Parker (Beth Parker), Saturday, 8 April 2006 15:39 (fifteen years ago) link

maria said last night that her feelings for jodie when she was a kid were "confusing". i told her this was common for lots of boys and girls cuz she had unisex appeal. she was such an iconic tomboy.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:09 (fifteen years ago) link

Jackie Earl Haley was the yin to Jodie's yang.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:13 (fifteen years ago) link

Beth, I hated that film (Copycat), but do remember thinking how it would be great if there was a good film where Sigourney Weaver and Holly Hunter teamed up to FIGHT CRIME.

Now I think I'd like to see Holly Hunter and Jodie Foster team up to FIGHT CRIME, and Sigourney Weaver could be their cigar-chomping, waistcoat-wearing, rule-layin'-down, no-shit-takin' superior.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:20 (fifteen years ago) link

I looked up Tatum O'Neal and I could only come up with a POV:

Paper Moon
The Bad News Bears
Nickelodeon
International Velvet
Little Darlings


after Little Darlings she just went...poof! (she did start raising a family in the 80's though)

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:35 (fifteen years ago) link

Meanwhile, with Kristy McNichol I can almost make ten:


The Pinballs
The End
Summer Of My German Soldier
Little Darlings
The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia
White Dog
Only When I Laugh
The Pirate Movie
Her role as "Buddy" on Family


so so close...

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:39 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, Holly Hunter's got that tense-jaw thing, too. I'm a little bugged by her shushy speech...mannerism? Impediment? So needless to say, The Piano is the only role I've really liked her in!
The three of them in the same movie would bring the tomboyishness to a rollicking boil. To counterbalance the hardgals there would have to be a complement of squishy/swishy men. Richard E Grant, Tim Roth, Johnny Depp, etc.

Beth Parker (Beth Parker), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:39 (fifteen years ago) link

Matt Dillon is too easy:


Over The Edge (My favorite movie of all time)
Little Darlings
My Bodyguard
Tex
The Outsiders
Rumble Fish
Drugstore Cowboy
To Die For
Wild Things
Beautiful Girls


Matt & Jodie should really get together for something.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 16:47 (fifteen years ago) link

"I'm a little bugged by her shushy speech...mannerism?"

this was perfection in Raising Arizona, but, yeah, it can be inadvertently hilarious in more serious roles where she ends up sounding like a cross between Bugs Bunny and the Original Cast Recording of Lil' Abner.

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 8 April 2006 17:28 (fifteen years ago) link

I saw Holly Hunter on Jonathan Ross' show when The Incredibles came out, and she looked terrifyingly skeletal. Her face looked like the Alien, with those big tendon things in her jaws just working away there.

Plus she came across as a humour-free zone, which put me off her completely.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Saturday, 8 April 2006 18:13 (fifteen years ago) link

i forgot the accused...and though her performance was amazing (and betrayed her status as child actor, as foster was never a child) i keep being confused about the continued status of taxi driver.

is it the pyschotic as loveable hero, the new york in forever decay of the 70s, the almost explicit misogyny, the excuse to enjoy watching women as victims, or something else?

anthony easton (anthony), Saturday, 8 April 2006 18:21 (fifteen years ago) link

i like taxi driver's strange fever-dream quality. and new york probably is the best character in it. the misogyny is creepy, yeah, i dunno, those dudes had issues. scorsese's role in the movie is probably my least favorite part.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 18:30 (fifteen years ago) link

has anyone ever written a book about the women in Scorsese movies? someone should. get cracking, anthony.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 18:43 (fifteen years ago) link

scott, im too busy writing about women in country, i dont like scorese enough

anthony easton (anthony), Saturday, 8 April 2006 18:50 (fifteen years ago) link

plus, wasn't Paul Schrader living in a car when he wrote Taxi Driver? Dudes who live in their car almost always have issues with women.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 19:16 (fifteen years ago) link

Foxes sports a great Giorgio Moroder soundtrack and Cherie Curry of the Runaways, but I tip my hat to Paul Schrader for giving Joan Jett of the Runaways her greatest role and giving us TWO even BETTER Moroder soundtracks with Cat People and American Gigolo. Neither of those films featured Jodie Foster, however.

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 19:19 (fifteen years ago) link

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Saturday, 8 April 2006 20:47 (fifteen years ago) link

light sleeper has what is possibly the WORST music/score/soundtrack that i have EVER heard in a movie. thus, i could only watch it once. and that's why i can't list it. plus, it's not that great. but that music!! Ugghhhh!

scott seward (scott seward), Saturday, 8 April 2006 20:47 (fifteen years ago) link

Light Of Day is great! Rent it!

I finally sat down with it the other night as well. Really amazing 70s game show-style cast (in addition to Ballard & Buzzi, we get John Astin, Dick Van Patten, Sorrell Booke, Charlene Tilton, and a bunch of "Oh, that guy!" character actors).

From some reason I was really ticked by the scene at Astin's with Foster giving the stinkeye to his glamorous but increasingly frumpy secretary​.

I also rescreened Blues Brothers and was struck by the similarities in the climatic car chases, mainly in regards to smashing up cop cars and the use of landmarks (part of the FF chase goes through the LA River).

Fritz feld (band teacher) popped his mouth! like he had since sound came in.

Harris gave a great slapstick performance, as advertised.

Foster's interview on the Freaky DVD (which seems to date from the FF remake era, 2003) is a little more in-depth than you might expect from Disney. She reminisces at length about all the films she did for them, getting bitten by a lion and falling into the studio toilet.

Also she was still under a binding Disney contract when she auditioned to play Leia in Star Wars (at age 14). Her mom decided to honor it, and the galaxy was never the same.

tot worth it! JF is fine, but she agrees that Harris walked off with the movie. The two of them also sing the opening-titles song.

oh yeah -- in a celebratory baseball scene an 8-year-old boy swats Harris on the butt and yells "ALLLRIIIIGHT!"

The opening credits song plays over a charming cartoon animated in a 70s claustrophobic caricature style.
