Cool!

Labofish sounds like it could be a little dirty somehow...

Lolita trailer music

That music was soooo 60's. Good match of peppy music to a tragic story.

Lists and Lolita -- Can I express how much envy I have in me, that you brought these together? While the Lolita concept might be disturbing to some, you've to hand it to Nabokov and the film adaptation for the handling .... there is no way I can't acknowledge brilliant.

As if you can't figure this out, I'm stealing this -- crediting your connective mind, mind you.

I love that movie because I think we come into it expecting to frown upon our protagonist, and he ends up being, if not sympathetic, pitiable in his weirdness. And the story goes where you do NOT expect it to.

I haven't seen the remake w/Jeremy Irons (Irons being the only thing that would influence me to see it) - but I also think that what's nice about the original is they didn't show any of the sexual relationship, but it was still completely out there for the audience to grasp. I like to think of all the old ladies and their beehives watching it gasping :-D

you know, immediately after I made that comment, I investigated that version, and I was like "huh I might eat my words." Apparently the second version tailors itself more to the book and is actually a prefered version among many Lolita fans :-D

that being said, even if it wasn't, Irons is DEFINITEly worthy enough to rent any movie :-D though he may never outdo his performance as Uncle Scar. LOL! "If I become King, what will that make you?" "A Monkey's Uncle." "You're so weird!" "You have NO IDEA."

We're reading Nabokov in my Senior Seminar class, and we're on the Lolita unit now. We're going to watch the two film versions next week and I'm so pumped because I haven't seen either one!

HAHA I thought the same thing. You can't really pull off sequined jackets and a cravat with a name like Zuchowski.

LOL. I agree. It'd be funny though, trying.

If I was a very talented impersonator guy I would totally take that as a stage name.

That's pretty awesome - I don't think "Michael Scruse" has quite the same ring to it....and Rip Torn was just genius.

I have the movie poster that says "How did they ever make a movie of Lolita" with her in the heart sunglasses w/lollipop. It's awesome.

ANd you know what I just thought of now? Didn't Urinetown have the slogan "how did they make a musical called urinetown?" LOL

In the book, Lo was 12 at the start, 14 at the end. It amuses me that they picked an actress who was clearly older. :-)

Yeah. :-) There was something similar in Clockwork Orange between the book and the movie.

Lolita takes place in the late 40's. *checks Wikipedia* 1947-1949

It's an odd book. The middle part of the book is a bit slow, and I know of a lot of people who've given up at that point. :-) But, if you can get past that part, it gets good again at the end. It's rather sad, actually. I've never seen the movie, so I don't know how close it is to the book.

Sylvester Labofish you say. Hardly the name inspiring terror as an action hero. More of a librarian or accountant.

Do you remember that clip you posted a while ago of Kate Winslet dancing around shaking her groove thing? Well, I just finished watching the movie that came from, Romance and Cigarettes. I'm not going to lie, that was a strange, strange movie.
