TRIVIA: The Crazy Random Interview about Movies

by Joe & Ray

Terrence Malick - The Tree of Life (2011)
Semuanya berawal dari SMS Ray yang mengomentari “The Tree of Life” Palm d’Or Cannes 2011. As people say: you never know when the craziness start, kita berdua juga ngga nyangka SMS itu bakal berlanjut jadi semacam quiz ngaco tentang film.

Tentang “The Tree of Life” yang disanjung-sanjung di Cannes kemarin...
Ray: Kuat dari banyak segi. Bikin speechless.
Joe: Err, belom nonton tuh. Tapi kayaknya bagus. I mean, it’s Terrence Malick! Hampir jadi mirip James Cameron, bikin film 10 taon sekali tapi hasilnya... BANG!

Emang ceritanya tentang apa? (berhubung Joe belom nonton, maka Ray yang akan ngejelasin)
Ray: Sebenarnya filmnya nda rumit (rupanya ybs menolak untuk jadi spoiler). Intinya tentang nilai kehidupan dilihat dari 2 sisi, Cuma gaya penceritaannya itu... MAMAMIA!

Di Hollywood ada joke: You could win Oscar only if you dare to be naked in front of the camera. Comment?
Ray: Disagree. Ada yang ngga bugil tapi tetep bisa dapet Oscar. Meryl Streep on Doubt (as a nun. Certainly can’t be nude!). Besides Oscar means dedications. Bentuk dedikasi bermacam-macam, bukan Cuma bugil.
Joe: Relatif. Bugil memang salah satu bentuk dedikasi yang boleh dibilang “paling diminati” meski yes, titik beratnya tetep pada act. Nude without purpose means PORN!

Kate Winslet 6 kali dinominasikan Oscar. Baru dapet pas di The Reader (yg mana dia bugil parah disitu). Comment?
Ray: Hanna Schmidt bukan Cuma soal bugil. She’s honest, vulnerable, passionate, smua sukses dibawakan Kate Winslet. Dan memang nominees lain nda ada yang bisa menandingi.
Joe: She was like WOW on that movie. Enam nominasi sebelumnya mungkin bikin dia gerah dan dia beneran total. She’s a bit picky on playing a role, so Hanna Schmidt must be challenging enough for her.

Sutradara cewek Cuma bisa bikin film drama, fairy-tale like movies or another plastic type movies. Comment?
Ray: Totally disagree! Cathy siapa tuh – yg ex-wifenya James Cameron bisa menyutradarai The Hurt Locker (dan diganjar Oscar).Sofia Coppola juga punya track record beberapa film berbau politik.
Joe: (to Ray) You mean Catherine Bigalow. Dude, The Hurt Locker genre is drama! (to the motion) Not-so-disagree. Sayangnya memang ngga banyak woman directors: Coppola, Bigelow, Hardwicke, Norah Ephron dan memang sebagian memilih untuk stay di jalur romantic comedy.

Ray: (to Joe) Ada action-nya juga, coy... Adegan menjinakan bom dan baku tembak?
Joe: (reply to Ray) Oh, I didn’t say it’s bad after all. Still hard to believe such that testoteronic movie was directed by a woman!

Film-film musikal yang sukses cuma berasal dari Broadway atau adaptasinya. Di luar itu, no fucking chance. Comment?
Ray: I have to agree with this. No further comment.
Joe: Definetely. The fact is, they were all started as successful Broadway shows before adapted into movie versions. Sample of non-Broadway-adaptation musical failure: Barbra’s movies on 1980’s.

Film-film yang diadaptasi dari game yang sukses cuma Resident Evil franchise – which is about to fall too due to over-too-much episodes...
Ray: Totally disagree! Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia tergolong sukses kok...
Joe: Disagree. Sadly but true, lots of game-adapted movies are CRAPS! And worse, producer never learn from this experiences.

Hollywood’s new hobby: REMAKE. Tanda-tanda kehabisan ide?
Ray: Mereka bukannya kehabisan ide, tapi sekarang memang lagi tren film adaptasi n film sequel. Just like music biz. It’s bleak.
Joe: Honestly, I don’t really like this fashion. Tapi gw berharap bakal ada remake yg much better for Harry Potter franchise!
Ray: AMEN!

Transformers franchise are all like car showroom: to show off purposelessly...
Ray: Agree! Plus for show off sex bombs. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a bitch.
Joe: Without real stories, all us audience want to see is the transformation-into-robots scences. Salute for Industrial Light & Magic (not Michael Bay. Oops!)

Film animasi Dreamworks selalu sukses dan pasti dibikin sequel. Kungfu Panda 3?
Ray: Ehm, no comment. Kurang referensi. Xixixi....
Joe: Kalo diliat dari franchise Shrek, Madagascar sama Kungfu Panda, kayaknya sih iya. Tapi tetep masih harus bersaing ketat sama Disney – Pixar, that’s obvious.

Brain, beauty and behaviour – mantra for becoming a successful actress in present Hollywood
Ray: Oh, ya jelas sesuai. Contoh nyata: Angelina Jolie.
Joe: Ehm, gw punya versi gw sendiri: A-B-C. A for Acting. B for both Beauty and Behaviour. C for Charisma.

Best movie ever? (Top 5)
Ray: 1) Gone with The Wind  2) Se7en  3) Inception  4) Titanic  5) Chicago
Joe: 1) The Sound of Music 2) The Shawsank Redemption  3)Doubt  4) 500 Days of Summer  5) Chicago

Movie you don’t wanna see twice?
Ray: The Day The Earth Stood Still (remake). TRASH!
Joe: All romatic comedy with common story. Something Borrowed like. Oh, ya, dan satu lagi: The Bounty Hunter.

Actor & Actress who should never be on frame?
Ray: Actor – Taylor Lautner. Sucks. Actress – Tipikal dumb blondes like Brittany Snow (Hairspray) yang cuma numpang lewat di film-film teenlit.
Joe: Actor – Sylvester Stallone. He can’t even speak up his lines clearly! Actress – Pamela Anderson. A hooker get caught by camera.

You laugh till cry when watching...
Ray: Bruno!
Joe: Bridget Jones Diary

Movie that make you wanna cum...
Ray: American Pie Series.
Joe: Ashton Kutcher’s Spread. LORD HAVE MERCY!

Good/Bad movie title start with the first letter of your name...
Ray: Ray! Bad movie: Rrrrr.....
Joe: Umm... Jarhead?

Movie that tells you about friendship?
Ray: Sex and The City!
Joe: You bet, Charlotte!

That's all for today fellas. Sampai jumpa di interview konyol berikutnya. Ciao!
