I really liked "Badlands" especially Martin Sheen portraying the ever iconic James Dean. I liked this movie because of all the action I mean almost everywhere Kit went he killed at least one person it was great! I wish the ending was a little better I didn't like how subtle it was compared to the rest of the movie. Anyway it was still pretty good.

I think this movie was very similar to Bonnie & Clyde because it was like the same plot girls meet boys and fall into their criminal passages . They just decide that they are going to follow that boy and do what they say .. the only difference to me is being that holly was so young minded she hadn't really had the chance grow into an adult she was always lead by her father so once kit killed her father its like he assumed that role . Although I think she shouldn't have went off with him to begin with ... over all I think the movie was pretty good . I wish it wasn't so close to bonnie & Clyde I would like to pull away from that .

Bonnie and Clyde Arthur Penn dir.
- Warren Beatty as Clyde Barrow
- Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker
- Gene Hackman as Buck Barrow
- Estelle parsons
movie background - Clyde was never a "lover boy" .... he says "no lover boy, never saw the percentage in it "
Bonnie was more of a dreamer , they both just wanted to be known and famous; no matter what way that it happened ... they were in love with each other and robbed banks together.
Both Clyde and Buck were crazy, had been to jail and were rebels, but Clyde cared about people. His intention was never to hurt anyone. He just wanted the money; he even let an innocent keep his money because it belonged to him and not the bank.
You could tell that Buck's wife Blanche was more of a church girl because she didn't like all of this robbing like everyone else did. She felt bad about it and mentioned that in the car alone with CW Moss... they got CW from the gas station, and he was in it because he felt like Bonnie and Clyde were his personal heroes. He wanted to get known just as much as they did . Bonnie and Blanche did not get along well and had a few situations; Blanche ended up being the group snitch after Buck died, and she was shot in the eye and could no longer see.
This is also how media affected Bonnie and Clyde's actions; they wanted everyone to see and they wanted to get known for what they were doing. When they died they wanted their names to be carried on and for someone to know what they were about. They are and were famous.The media kept their adrenaline pumping , even when they caught a cop they handcuffed him and there was a whole situation. They did it for the media. They looked forward to being in the papers etc. They took pictures with the cop and Bonnie even kissed the cop , then the cop went back and talked about the situation. They all loved being the Barrow gang .. maybe except for Blanche.. !!

I think the line that sums up the whole film is Roxie's line when she performs her musical number titled "Roxie"
"Mmmmmmmm, I'm a star! And the audience loves me.
And I love them. And they love me for loving them, And I love them for loving me. And
We love each other. That's because none of us
Got enough love in our childhoods.
And that's showbiz...
This line sums up the movie because its all about starting or getting back on the stage getting that desired attention that these woman yearned for their entire lives. As the finale, they go through this metamorphosis where they achieve their goals and become stars!

touch of evil :
- crooked cops
- Janet was married and innocent
- her husband was a good cop
- starring Janet Leigh
- black and white
- somebody crazy
- criminal activity
- questionable characters
- both movies clearly connect to their title inn my opinion
- in this movie Janet plays the bad guy at first , her character wasn't as innocent as she was in the movie "Touch of Evil"
- the protagonist changes
- Marian has a secret affair with Sam but in this scene there's irony because she's wearing a white bra which symbolizes purity or innocence because of the color

Tomorrow, anyone interested in extra-credit (or just seeing a darn good creepy movie) should attend the film club's screening of Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining (2:15 in the Lecture Hall).
Please use this post to thread comments regarding these masterworks.

The movie has gotten way more interesting now because they keep sneaking in to the world trade centers an keep bringing supplies to help figure out how they will go across. They needed to figure out how to send the rope across over 200 feet an tested many different ways. His friends are now very cautious because a security guard walks around at night an its funny because they get so scared. They help him practice to walk better by shaking the rope for practice so just in case a wind comes he will be able to handle that an when the towers sway. They finally get ready for the walk an everyone on the ground is watching in astonishment. No one cane believe a man would risk his life to do that. All the viewers thought it was beautiful an it was different an they liked that. They went about their lives everyday an that was so plain but they seen something that would never happen again. Then he got arrested but they didn't know what to charge him with an I found that funny . He knew was just a step away from death but he conquered the towers an showed the world anything is possible and to never let anyone stop you. I enjoyed the movie but the beginning was just a little weird but once u get into it its good.
