PostSubject: Stellan movies   Fri 23 Jun - 6:30

Hey everyone,

I've posted an intro message in the relevant part of the forum with a list of Stellan's films I've seen but I thought I'd post them here too in case anyone has any questions about any of them that they were thinking of buying/renting. Or I'd love to discuss any of them that others have seen. Maybe some of you have the few I'm missing too. Here's the films:

Dominion: prequel to the exorcist, exorcist: the beginning, king arthur, eiffeltornet, dogville, helen of troy, city of ghosts, no good deed, the glass house, taking sides, powder keg, aberdeen, dancer in the dark, timecode, signs and wonders, passion of mind, kiss kiss (bang bang), deep blue sea, ronin, glasblåsarns barn, good will hunting, my son the fanatic, insomnia, breaking the waves, harry och sonja, jönssonligans största kupp, kådisbellan, wind, S/Y Glädjen...

Ha det så bra, as Stellan would say...

Jen

As is said before, your movie-list is really impressive. Actually I'm thinking about expanting my movie-list a little bit.

So I would like to know your opinion about the following movies and whether I should buy them or not:
Wind
Ronin
Helen of Troy

That's it.

Thanks.

Well, I recommend buying Ronin if you like Hollywood action-type films. Stellan has a supporting role as part of a team of people after a mysterious package wanted by other international organisations. The film has what is considered to be the best car chase scene in film history and a fast paced storyline with some good lines and acting from De Niro. It's not one of those filsm where you're going to get any classic acting scenes from Stellan as the film is obviously focussed mainly around De Niro but still a recommended buy. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Haven't seen it for a fair while actually, must watch it again!

I didn't think that Wind would be particularly interesting as it's about boat racing and I only bought it because I found it very cheap. The story revolves around Will Parker (Matthew Modine) who is determined to win the America's Cup after a painful failure in a previous race. He enlists the help of his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend (played by Stellan). There is some interesting tension in the film due to this situation with the two men but it is obviously very heavily centered around boat racing so could be a bit boring for non-enthusiasts. I myself am no fan of boats but enjoyed the acting from Stellan so it was worth buying cheap. Wouldn't be top of my list though, it depends how keen you are to see all of Stellan's work!

As for Helen of Troy I have to admit I have not seen it for quite some time so can't offer many insightful comments about it. I know it wouldn't be top of my list as again Stellan has a fairly minor role in a big supporting cast. I'll have to dig it out and get back to you.

The problem with a lot of stellan's films is that the easiest ones to get hold of are the Hollywood ones where Stellan only has minor roles and they're your typical hollywood fair. The best films which revolve around Stellan and really showcase his acting talent are unfortunately more difficult to get hold of. I recommend looking on ebay or amazon to find some of his greatest work such as Aberdeen, Breaking the Waves, Taking Sides, Insomnia etc.

I know that problem very well. Crying or Very sad

It's really hard to get the good movies, because they are sadly never realeased in my country. That sucks.

I really try my best to get some poor-quality copies from time to time. (sometimes on vhs as well).

Im really glad that I've managed to get a copy of Aberdeen and Insomnia. Although both movies aren't available where I live. And you are right, this movies are really masterpieces.

What really sucks is, that I can't get a copy of kiss kiss bang bang cause I really would like to have this film.

Somewhere in the middle of europa. English movies usually don't make is this far, if they aren't transalated. And usually only blockbusters get dubbed. Sad

sunny I guess this is the right Sunshine (Sunny) smilie for me. By the way, thanks very much for that nice smilie! Smile sunny

I counted my number of Stellan movies and I counted 16. I will get 3 more movies in the next 2 or 3 weeks so that`s great.

At the moment my 4 favourite movies are Dominion/The Exorcist, Ronin and Good Will Hunting. However, that may change once Iīll have seen a couple of more movies. flower

I really understand that you are happy of getting more and more films.
My favorite ones are: Oxen, Aberdeen, Den Demokratiske Terroristen and The Glass House.
But all the movies are great. Sometimes I donīt like that Stellan has so little roles to play (Savior).

I guess my favourite movie is God afton, Herr Wallenberg. I really loved this movie.

Although I also like the other movies both of you mentioned.

Cool Hi Wiki,

God afton, Herr Wallenberg was on TV here the other day and I loved it very much though the movie is so sad which is why I probably wouldnīt watch it very often.
But itīs a brilliant film and I love it when Stellan speaks German. Smile

Hi.

Yeah, often there's beauty in sadness, i think. Of course, I don't watch "God afton, Herr Wallenberg" every day, but the movie really impressed me. And yes, I kind of like sad movies (from time to time).

As far as I remember, Stellan spoke a few sentences German in "Taking Sides" and "the democratic terrorist" as well. At least the last movie is also set in Germany.

By the way, "Der demokratische Terrorist" will be released in december in germany. But I'm not sure, that the release the DVD with the original audio-language. The movie was originally shot in english, sometime they actors talk swedish or a littel bit german. I'm quite sure that the germans dubed the movie.

I havenīt seen Taking Sides yet but it should be in the mail this week.
I havenīt seen "The democratic terrorist" as well. Thank you for the information about the DVD. Yes, Iīm sure the movie will be dubbed but when itīs available on DVD the film can usually be watched in the original language as well. Letīs hope that this is the case here.

I watched The Glass House the other day and Iīm quite impressed. Iīm sure that I will watch the movie a lot more times. flower

It's quite a long time since I watched "The glass house", but the I remember, but it's a pretty cool movie. I guess I have to watch the DVD again. Stellan really gives a terrific performance in this movie. But that wasn't the only reason I liked "the glass house".

I'm quite excited about your opinion about "Taking Sides". Because it's a very theater like movie. As far as I know, the movie is even based on some theatrical play.

I will let you know my opinion as soon as I watched Taking Sides. I hope it arrives till the end of next week and then I can watch it straight away.

Yes, The Glass House is a great movie. Iīm happy that I have it on DVD now.
I also think that Stellan looks absolutely gorgeous in this movie. (not only in The Glass House but always, of course! Very Happy )

Itīs great that you will get “Taking Sides” during the next week, Sunshine.
And donīt worry about “Den Demokratiske Terroristen”. When you get it from me, itīs in english – just the version in which the movie was shot. I hope you donīt get crazy about the swedish subtitles. With them you can also learn a little bit.

I think we have now a little private forum, just Wiki, Sunshine and me. But itīs better when few people are writing than no one.

Have a nive evening

Cool Thatīs very nice of you, Sabrina. I usually hate German subtitles when you are watching a movie in English and you canīt remove them. I donīt know though if the same applies to any other languages.

It is good to see a few people posting here and Iīm sure weīll become a few more members soon.
Iīm also used to very small and private forums where only a few people are posting so I donīt mind that here as well. flower

I like German subtitles, but I donīt have so many DVDs with them. Most of my DVDs have now swedish or english subtitles.

And I just had only one DVD where I couldnīt remove the subtitles.

The forum is hard to find, I think. I just discovered it by luck. So I donīt think that many new mebers will join (and write something). You know, most people donīt write, they only read what the others have to say, sadly…

Nice evening to you and Wiki.

You keep posting and posting... I canīt continue writing my story with Stellan. Maybe tomorrow.

Thatīs really bad when the subtitles canīt be removed. The swedish subtitles canīt be removed, either. But thatīs not so bad. You can learn a lot with them.

Yes, itīs a good thing to learn from subtitles. You can also do it, when you get the DVD.

And to the story: Just wait a little time, then youīll get it. Maybe on the weekend. I will do my best to make you happy.

Tack så mycket. I donīt know what to say. I think my stories are not so good because itīs always the same. Nice adventure, accident and then help from the friend/wife. But I appreciate that you like my stories. That makes me proud and I will do my best to finish the story in the next days.
