Ready Player One

If you turn off your brain, it’s enjoyable. If you turn it on however, nothing makes sense, everything is s*** and Edgar Wright was originally meant to make it.

Started watching Shape of Water on the plane, but stopped because it looked absolutely class and I wanted to watch it with proper sound and a decent screen.

The new Gotti film, what a load of s****. As someone who is interested in this s*** I was looking forward to it, especially as I love JT and thought he could pull it off. But it was some kind of performance that I can only describe as a cross between his Shapiro character from the OJ vs The People series and Don Carleone from the God Father.

I know the real Gotti is long since dead, but there is enough footage of him to tie down his mannerisms, the way he talked and how he carried himself. It seems to me he just went into it with his own idea of Gotti and went from there, that or he just turned up for the payday because it was a poor performance. Not s**** acting as such, just a poor version of the person he was playing.

Gotti was relaxed, full of smiles, charm and nowhere near as clear speaking in terms of his vocabulary, this was like an ultra tense, uptight, posh and sage Gotti. Overacting? This performance wouldn’t have looked out of place on a stage, obviously not as Gotti.

Such a shame because it could have been an epic portrayal of the man and although it was clearly a story of a father and son relationship and some bull s*** about honour and integrity, it was all over the place throughout.

It tried to be slick and fast paced with the music, but it blew over every aspect of him as a character, his family and his whole life as a member of the mafia so quickly that it didn’t touch his story at all in any detail given it no depth at all. As for the guy that played his son, he was more wooden than an elm tree and the guy that played Sammy the Bull whose part probably counted all of 5 minutes or so, he looked nowt like him. How hard can it be :lol:

The whole father and son dialogue was such bull s*** as well, Gotti is on record being anything but a wise and loving father figure and his son was considered a joke and an embarrassment to him and others.

I was so looking forward to it as well, glad I watched it online on some stream thing and not paid for it.

What was JT’s last good film btw?

Was good to see him without his hair transplant mind and he’s still one handsome b******.

Need to watch that again, such a great film and Pelham 123 was canny, more popcorn type film though. I thought, when I heard he was going to play Gotti, that he would be ideal for the role and do it justice, but it didn’t work. s*** script/dialogue and poor casting, that and JT looks like he didn’t even research the bloke or if he did, thought he could add his own slant.

The first film about Gotti was much better even though it was hammed up at times and full of inaccuracies as well.

Marketa Lazarová  (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063278/)

Reputedly the greatest Czech film ever made.
I have mixed feelings about it.
In it's depiction of the middle ages I don't think I've seen anything that can quite match it, for sheer visceral dirtiness. The plot basically involves pagan warlords warring and then getting their comeuppance.
But for all my admiration, and I have a lot of admiration for the cinematography and the cinematic poetry on offer here, I have reservations.

I gave it 8/10 because it utterly unique, although it did remind me at times of one of my favourite films Andrei Rublev which is also set in a similar period and is much better IMHO, though very different. Great film though, thoroughly recommend you watch it Andrei Rublev (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060107/?ref_=nv_sr_1)

Awesome film.

The opening scene, after watching it so many times, made me think that Landa isn't really a fanatic Nazi that you'd expect an SS colonel to be. When he compares the hostile world a Jew lives in during 1941 to one a rat lives in and asks LaPadite if a rat has caused anything to him personally to create such animosity towards him and that small speech made me think that, and that he's just one horrid sadist. Probably read too much into it but I love that film.

On the subject of The Incredibles, tried showing it to the eldest (5) over the last few days and I realised I'd forgotten how adult the general themes are. Not for young kids at all really, even though I'm sure they'd enjoy the action sequences without understanding why any of it is happening.

A fair few of the new animated films are aimed at adults as well as the kids, well a fair chunk of the content in certain films is certainly aimed at just the adults.

Incredibles 2, is much more toward the young uns, even if the overall theme isn't really, you just notice it far less than in the first movie.

Twenty minutes of Extinction. It's some Netflix produced film.

Star Wars - The Last Jedi

I've no idea how this will go down.  To the best of my knowledge it seems to be getting ripped apart, from fans anyway, but I thought this was fantastic.  A bit too jokey at times, but some of them worked.  Definitely also being a bit too over the top with the must have strong female heroes, but doesn't actually bother me, it just seems too obvious.  But great film, don't care what anyone says. 

Heard the Han Solo one is really crap though, or should I give it a shot?

I liked it alot too Bluf but it seems to be a marmite love/hate film.

Solo is very meh but the cast do a good job.

Game night. Enjoyed it, pretty funny at times. Not sure it would hold up on 2nd watch as much tho.

7/10

I don't know if this movie caught me at a good time or something, but we watched this a few weeks back and were in kinks.

The only major gripe I have with it is, it trashed the mystery of the first one.

But with that weighing in my mind, that's how good I thought the movie was, as I could accept it.  Just a bit annoying, and can definitely see why sad ass fans are getting in a twist.

Nightcrawler is a fantastic movie, one of the best i've seen in recent years.


The Last Jedi however is not, I saw it recently and it was just a mess, with a bad story and weak characters. It felt like a story created by a committee, each member wanting their own thing in there. I rate it below the prequels, even the Phantom Menace. They've got a big job of salvaging this trilogy, the first film was just average.

You need to rewatch the prequels if you think The Last Jedi is worse than them.

The prequels atleast had some lightsaber battles, some decent bad guys, and some decent good guys. I'm not even sure what's going on in these films, it seems to just be a slow chase through space involving a small group of rebels. Are we supposed to believe that if they get away they win somehow? Even though there only seems to be a couple hundred of them. Or will the woman that picked up a lightsaber and has had zero training save the day? It's absolute nonsense.

Post by: BlufPurdi on Monday 6 August 2018, 11:35:38 AM
I don't disagree with the essence of what you're saying, Kimbo.  I was sitting there almost perplexed at times watching it.  So much of it felt like a typical filler episode - Finn and Rose's little jaunt with a completely pointless, if somewhat enjoyable cameo from del Toro.  Some of the humour was great, the first bit was alright but they stretched it just too far and ended up feeling like I was watching a Spaceballs scene and it over did it with nearly every attempt. 

However, it is not worse than the prequels, and don't really accept it's s***.  They're just rejigging it all, new heroes for a new generation of kids, clearly bending what were the 'laws' of the force.  I've long stopped watching it with any sort of serious appreciation for what it once was.

Possibly cos I can never to sit through either of the decent Godfathers.

Aye, I liked the first Godfather movie but the others were not as good. Casino is probably my fave mob movie, although stylistically Goodfellas is as good as it gets.

Goodfellas is probably my favourite.  Weirdly, I rate Donnie Brasco not far behind.  I love that film, even if it isn't usually anywhere close to the conversation.

AMPAS to introduce a 'Best Popular Film' category to honour films that aren't so well received by your standard Oscar critics but deserve recognition.

Black Panther to walk this category if it is introduced in time for next year. There has been Oscar buzz around it anyway trying to repel the controversy currently around the Academy and for it's strong black message but this makes it a shoe-in imo if this new category is in place.

I've come to accept it, but I looked at the time just as they were getting in the car and thought, "must be a good 20 minutes left, they need to get this c***", then BAM, credits. :lol:

Look, I enjoyed it, and I thought he did great with what he was given with to do as Luke, but would have enjoyed seeing him flex some serious jedi muscle.  His whole performance as a failed hero was great, just saying what I would have liked to have seen.

Aye, but Jedi aren't Sith, they're the exact opposite.

Anyway, we've got the Star Wars thread for this, let's talk about Hatem (a Jedi in his own way) :lol:

Spoiler
[close]
There were very good bits in the film though.

The film would have been about 90 mins long imo if it was just that. I just don't care about the new characters at all but they are all very child friendly (just shouting like Rick Flair all the time and being dead earnest) so theres that. Didn't mind the Luke stuff, especially that one badass moment.

Watched Jumanji. Quite liked what they did with the sequel/but a reboot. Karen Gillan is mind-numbingly fit.

Solo.

I was wrong about this one. I really enjoyed it. The fact Harrelson is in it probably skewed my opinion. But I thought they got it spot on.

Took me a while to warm to the dude playing Han Solo. But towards the end, I thought he nailed it.

Upgrade - half decent. Shoddy acting in parts, but I liked the premise of it, even if it was a bit silly.

Lean on Pete - really good. Lost it’s way about an hour in. But it picked up again. The kid who played the lead role was superb and everyone loves Buscemi (not you Beten).

The Breakfast Club - first time watching it, despite it being referenced in so many things throughout my life. I can’t really put into words why I loved it, as the plot hardly makes it sound exciting. But it just worked IMO.

Paddington - Good kid fun, I suppose.  Have to say if I met a family like The Browns, I'd bury them in their garden. 

Black Panther - Sorry, can someone please explain the hype that was attached to this?  Absolute sentimentalised garbage, dressed up in diversity and little going for it.  Every character is s****.  I'm usually a bit more forgiving of Marvel s***, but this was actually meant to be good. 

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom - A bit like Star Wars for me, this.  I enjoyed it, despite it being too farcical and over the top at points, but liked the 'extinction' scene and general direction it's taken since the reboot.  It's a tired idea but at least they're not bamming about an island any longer. 

Dunkirk - I've watched this twice because I felt like I must be getting it wrong, but it felt a bit flat.  Doesn't help going in with Saving Private Ryan expectations, but it just seemed to miss a beat.  Was much better on second viewing.  Nolan fail though.

Black Panther had some great characters loved M'baku & Shuri, and the Dora Milaje   and thought Killmonger was a great antagonist.

Not really sure where it ranks in the franchise.  Miles behind the first, obviously.  I enjoyed it just as much as the second, but Predators was probably a better movie.  I don't include the AvP films, as they were just horrendous.

Guessing it wasn’t released in theaters over there? As to why it’s already on Netflix.

Meant to see it but already gone from the theaters in my area. Looked good.

Absolutely. The truth serum bit was funny. Maybe it disproportionately stood out in an otherwise poor attempt of humour throughout.

So much of the peril was stupidly unnecessary and avoidable with things like "Wait 20 minutes and we'll sort you after we've sorted her. Ok?". "Ay, fair enough."

Aye, found the odd bit funny but mostly thought it was a little out of sync with sense, even MCU sense.  Hard to believe this is going on on the very same day as the end of the the Infinity War film, which I've not seen yet but now know something's up. :tickedoff:

You did see right to the end?  Wish they wouldn't do that s***.  Missed it until reading reviews. :lol:

Whilst I agree the film wasn't very good, bar the odd joke here and there - it didn't take place at the same day as the end of Infinity War. Only the mid-credits scene took place during that. The film is set before Infinity War otherwise.

I'm always surprised to see how many people leave the cinema as the end credits start during Marvel films. Marvel films always have at least one scene by the end of the credits. You'd think after 10 years of films the majority of the audience would be aware. There's usually just a handful of people who stay to the end.

Ant Man and The Wasp - So aye, was a bit poor but there's something about Rudd that pulls me in, the prick.  f***ed the ending and knew nothing of its context anyway, so...

Avengers: Infinity War - Good stuff.  Brolin is great given he must be hidden under a layer of s**** and CGI.  But, despite the end, it's obviously never going to have happened.  I probably need to start watching these in order, as I have no idea where the start of this film ends in another.  I take it Thor: Ragnarok?  Not seen it.

Watched "The Nun" which is a wonderful film, but not for the reasons I believe the makers intended though. A few technical scares, but on the whole it's a hilarious mess and at times so stupid I was saying "oh f*** off " at the screen. A Belgian fella was playing a French Canadian who sounded like he was fresh out of Bill and Ted, it may well be the greatest piece of avant garde acting I've ever seen .

Does a particular actor having a contract guarantee a continuation of their character or is it all up to the studio? Actor can't get out of it but studio can, sort of thing?

There are many ways out of contracts, but essentially the most common way would be the studio paying up the remaining contract and not put them in any pictures, but that is a solid chunk of money going to waste even for a colossus like Marvel.

A comparison could be Game of Thrones, where everyone got signed up for six seasons at the beginning even if their character would die along the way. They'd get paid for all six seasons, but not appear in all. That way HBO protected themselves against both wage raises for six seasons and knew they could keep a character longer if they so wished.

Yes and no. There were talks of bringing him back for flashbacks many times. But think it got structured so he only got paid for one season with an option for appearances in further seasons.

He did this by sailing a wooden raft with 4 others from Peru to French’s Polynesia....I suspect the book will be better but it’s an insight to the expedition.

Watched Operation Finale on Netflix, about the capture of Adolf Eichmann. Not an amazing film but a decent effort, Oscar Isaac is really good.

Watched that last night on Netflix also, far too fast paced in terms of scenes and not as in depth about him individually as I thought it would be, some fairly obvious inaccuracies too which p*ss me off when it comes to these things as there is no need.

Watched Detroit the other night on Prime, brilliant if not sickening given it could be set in 2018 not the 60s, or any decade really. Been watching a few things about the civil rights movement in the US and what African Americans went through especially and still do. Shocking really.

Watched LA 1992 on Netflix about Rodney King and the riots recently as well, that was a hard watch.

And it's not Thor himself that's funny, it's the way he acts 'causing reactions from the surrounding characters that's funny.

Doctor Strange - Well I thought this was great.  Not sure if I just love the visuals or if it's any good, but I hate Cumberbatch so it had something going for it.

Thor: Ragnarok - Tremendous.  What a surprise too, as the others were s***.  Could watch it again tonight, p*ssed myself at so much of it. 

I really like the first Thor, the second is a flaming turd. I wasn't completely sold on 3 till a second rewatch where it clicked and I loved it.

Think his next flick might become the new favourite purely based on the insane plot summary:

"Jojo Rabbit is a young boy living during World War II. His only escapism is through his imaginary friend, an ethnically inaccurate version of Adolf Hitler, who pushes the young boy's naive patriotic beliefs."

Operation Finale - the acting from the main leads is very good, and there were a couple of strong scenes.

The film felt a little padded at times, and I wouldn't call it a super exciting film. Decent watch though. 6/10.

Downsizing has some terrible reviews but I thought it was very good and the Vietnamese lass was great.
Just watched it. It wasn't what I was expecting. It's another one of those films where the studio didn't know how to sell it so the trailer made it look like a comedy which it definitely isn't.

I thought it was okay, certainly not terrible. People probably said it was terrible as they went into it expecting laughs.

The concept was great and I get why it has a lot of acclaim, but the end is a step too far into the profound for me and really undoes a lot of what's good about the film. Without that it would probably be a solid 8 for me.

Years since I've seen it, but felt exactly the same. Thinking about it in the interveing years, alongside the rise of social media, and it's not quite so ridiculous.

It's actually the inspiration behind my idea for a film which I will never make. But would love to see.

Traditional media is dead and people turn to people like Alex Jones for their news. Jones reports on the dark states plan to reduce the global population by 95%, and inspires his supporters to mount a rebellion which is successful, only to discover thay have, whickermanlike, walked into their own destruction.

I was actually foaming after the first 5 mins due to how much I loved the first, then gave it a few more before picking up my iPad and half watching it. It had some good bits in it, but it was so laced with over the top action and stupidity I’m still f***ing p*ssed off with it 24 hours later. It was like Michael bay got his hands on it. Everything turned in to something else, transformers vs inspector gadget, would have made a good cartoon, which is basically what the villain was in her far cry meets bioshock hideout.

It's fine. Standard Marvel stuff, but the villains are better than your usual s**** from Marvel. Shame about the end bit with just two equally powered guys in cgi suits starts hitting each other. MbJ kills it as Killmonger like.

Dear God, what a piece of s****. Hoped they would have done something different with it, but it's just another Saw sequel. Guessed the twist half way through, but the worst part was that none of the characters were interesting in the slightest, not even their 'crimes' made any sense. Just a massive waste of time.

f***ing hell, what a film. Intense as hell, barely any (English) dialogue, but it's not needed. There's nothing you don't understand from just the expressions of the characters. The fight scenes are incredible, you feel every punch and kick.
Just watch it, you won't be disappointed.

A Star is Born - genuinely one of the best films i can remember seeing. It doesn't feel like you're watching people act, which i guess is about as big a compliment as you can pay a film. Both of the main stars are absolutely faultless throughout and the authenticity and timing of the music just adds to the whole thing. Go and see it!!

Murders in the Congo

(https://www.platekompaniet.no/globalassets/filmcover/2018/oktober/kongo_temp.jpg?preset=ProductPage)

For multiple reasons, I went into this flick with pre-disposed dislike. Couldn't maintain the hatred to the end of the film though. It's well made, great acting performances and doesn't shy away from the fact we still don't actually know the truth of how the murders were committed, or by whom. I fully expected it to portray French and Moland as Norwegian heroes framed by corrupt officials in a perceived "wild" African country, I was wrong :lol:

A bit of a guilty pleasure of mine but I've started to re-watch the Resident Evil films. Enjoyed the first two struggling with Extinction at the moment though, probably about a 3rd of the way through!.

Really enjoyed the new Halloween, jumps straight in at number 2 on  my favourite list for the Halloween franchise with of course the original number 1. I read an article the other day ranking the Halloween films and the list put Halloween 3 as 2nd best.... Hmmmmmm, I thought it was a steaming pile of turd!!

Also gave Scream a re-watch. absolutely loved it when was 19/20 still enjoy it now. As long as you don't take it too seriously it is an enjoyable film.

Not appropriate for this thread, yet...but...about to watch The Equalizer 2! Denzel kicking ass is always s***-hot movie gold.

See yaaaaaaa.....

Well, I got what I wanted. He kicked ass for the first 2/3.

Finished off the final 3rd in a more cliched movie way. And the whole thing was way too sentimental and bullshitty come the end.

I feel the first one had a feel of a series that could be rolled out. This one felt like a conclusion. A bullshitty conclusion of blah blah inner peace, blah blah.

f*** that! I want him p*ssed forever. I want him cooly wiping folks out.

Also bits from the trailer are missing. Seems the norm, these days.

6/10

Trailers are cut by different editors than the actual film, often far in advance of there being a lock on the film edit. It’s s***.

Finally relented and agreed to see this with my gf this weekend. Is it long as f***? I bet it's long as f***.

Ignore sewelly, it's really good, worth watching for Cooper alone imo. Couple of minor things overall that aren't perfect but it's excellent.

I think you could arguably cut some of the early stuff if anything but that sets up the later stuff so well imo.

If I had a gripe I was only really bothered by one thing. They put so much effort into the live performances, and visually it worked perfectly, but the audio was basically studio singing. Didn't sit together.

Earlier stuff was better for me, more fairy tale.

I really thought it lost its way as it went along. Badly paced and structured, so much covered yet I didn't really get any sense of his decline as a rock star. It just seemed that all of a sudden he was pathetic. Also some ridiculous scenes that were bordering on slapstick and really took me out of the film.

It was definitely worth watching, but by end I

I think that's one flaw tbh. His decline was already in full swing but that wasn't made clear enough I would say.

The early stuff set up the later stuff as I said.

You could argue they didn't explore his reasons enough but that also wasn't the focus of the film in many ways. The balance was good but probably not perfect.

Performances made the movie imo.

Sounds like the focus of the film was the performances then. Understandable with two such huge performers, and it's not necessarily a bad thing. But if the subject is music and the focus is the performance, I'd rather just listen to some music.

I vaguely remember the original, and whilst I don't know much about Gaga, I can't believe she could ever give the kind of performance that Streisand was famous for. And if I'm honest I have no need to discover for myself. If I was going to watch this I think i would re-watch the original first, and be satisfied.

Apropos of nothing, it seems like "Best Picture" winners and contenders these days tend to be almost exclusively smaller, more "niche" films. Whereas more "mainstream" films were the norm 15-20 years ago.

Would a film like Gladiator even get a nomination for Best Picture if it came out now?

Though expanding the field of nominations from 5 also cheapens it. I do suppose there's a case to be made that the pure volume of films being released now necessitates it.

Being "Oscar Nominated for Best Picture" generates sales, which is why the field was expanded. The popular category would f*** s*** up, which is why they went back on it. Would allow films like Black Panther to get a nomination, but then people will argue if it gets in Most Popular it should get in Best Picture.

When did Venom face turn, and how did he end up fighting not Venom but totally looks like Venom? I checked out somewhere near the beginning of the film. Also we've just seen not Venom make crazy s*** weapons out of his hands and traverse the side of a shuttle but you're telling me he couldn't bash his way out of that shuttle? f*** off.

Ballad of Buster Scruggs - Cohen Brothers

Another somewhat slight piece of whimsy from the Cohens rather in the vein of fluff like Hail Caesar and Burn After Reading, it's a compendium of Wild West tales. Some of which are amusing, some are diverting and some slightly less than interesting. Overall I think it's time for them to make a decent film again, high time. I can appreciate the archness, the smirk, the little bits of cleverness but none of this makes a great film in my humble opinion.

Looking back it might be No country that was the last good film, before that Fargo. For such a talented pair they have a decidedly mixed back catalog but I usually look forward to a new piece from them (I didn't see Inside..., it looked to be not something I would enjoy)

Black Panther. Generic comic book fare, adult bedtime story, hilarious CGI...surprisingly poor, thought the hype would be real like Get Out but apparently not for me. Has Forest Whittaker stopped pretending to act? He's been cack since Ghost Dog.

As for Coen Bros, most of their films aren't masterpieces but very few directors pump them out consistently anyways; especially at their rate of creating. A lot of 6-7/10 comical farces with intermingling narratives, most are pleasant at least, only really disliked A Serious Man and Burn After Reading.

Get you and agree. But if they do keep going, keep so in the same vein and style as this and make each character orientated so for example next maybe some other Autobot or Decepticon.

Was more a hark back to the original comics and story.

Speaking of Bumblebee and Hopkins.

I saw the last Transformers the other night. Holy s*** everything about that film is an absolute train wreck. I could write an essay on all of the problems with it but the one that slaps you in the face the most is the constant flicking between aspect ratios from shot to shot. Black bars appearing/disapearing/shrinking/growing at the top and bottom of the screen every 2 seconds during some scenes.

The aspect ratio changes can occur when only part of a film was shot with IMAX cameras. E.g. Filmed in IMAX then full screen is filled on a TV and non-IMAX is the 'letterbox' black bars on a TV. I've noticed that when watching e.g. 'The Dark Knight'.

Prisoners - Huge Ackman, Gyllenhaal film.  Couple of kids go missing, murders etc.  Quite well done, liked the tension and Gyllenhaal playing another cop, and doing it well. 

The Physician - Thought this was a brilliant film.  Seemed somewhat wasted as a film, lacked impact at moments I could imagine would have made some good TV, but it's a film, so I'll shut up.  It's great if you're into historical stuff, gives you a feel of what's going on elsewhere whilst we played Dark Ages.

Centurion - Romans invading Scotland, f***ing it up, then a fight for survival.  Really enjoyable, again more so if you're into the historical aspect of it, but certainly nothing special as a film. 

Extinction - Didn't know what to expect, thought it was a TV movie, but it was actually really f***ing good.  I didn't expect the twist, but won't say too much because if you have even faintest idea going into the film, you'll see the twist a mile off.

:lol: People are f***ing idiots, they like s**** films. Film reviewers pander to these idiots. Of course they have reasonable Rotten Tomatoes scores.

That new Spiderman film.

Was great :thup:

Nobody else on here seen this yet? Seems like ya'll always watching these comic book movies but this has slipped under the radar.

The animation was really absolutely breathtaking. I don't ever see films twice in the cinema but I'm genuinely tempted with this purely for the eye candy. Stylistically it seemed like something totally new as well, which is so rare when going to the cinema.

Even the animation aside, I couldn't find many faults in it. Good story, likeable characters, funny and a fantastic score/soundtrack.

can’t stand his films, saw magnolia years ago and couldn’t understand why it was lauded. Watched it twice since then and thought it was s**** still, disliked the master too. I like a lot of international cinema that some people think is pretentious because films often have subtitles but I’ve never seen anything as pretentious as Paul Thomas Anderson’s films

Think i read somewhere that in the real battle (the things that happened, happened over days not hours as the film shows)

On 21 May, in a night attack on high ground near Shuri, he remained in exposed territory while the rest of his company took cover, fearlessly risking the chance that he would be mistaken for an infiltrating Japanese and giving aid to the injured until he was himself seriously wounded in the legs by the explosion of a grenade. Rather than call another aid man from cover, he cared for his own injuries and waited five hours before litter bearers reached him and started carrying him to cover. The trio was caught in an enemy tank attack and Private First Class Doss, seeing a more critically wounded man nearby, crawled off the litter and directed the bearers to give their first attention to the other man. Awaiting the litter bearers' return, he was again struck, this time suffering a compound fracture of one arm. With magnificent fortitude he bound a rifle stock to his shattered arm as a splint and then crawled 300 yards over rough terrain to the aid station.

Mel Gibson didn't film the above as he thought it would be unrealistic  :lol:

I always watch PTA’s movies so if I can find it I’ll stick it on today but haven’t enjoyed anything he’s done really since There Will Be Blood. Inherent Vice was one of the worst cinema experiences I’ve ever had and the Master would’ve been the same if I’d not watched it at home. Enjoyed Magnolia and Punch Drunk Love was canny. Boogie Nights was good but can hardly remember much of Hard Eight.

Eternity and a Day

1998

Directed by the renowned Theo Angelopoulos, though I think I've only seen one of his previous films, and starring one of my faves Bruno Ganz as a terminal writer of some hirsute. This is an artfully told story of loneliness, loss and I guess some kind of redemption. The plot is not the thing here really. it's about spirit, identity and loss. Ganz, dubbed into Greek I though it wasn't massively noticeable, is approaching death and living partly in memories of his lost wife and their previous life but has a chance to rescue an innocent before he pops his clogs.

It's quite affecting at times. I would say you need to be in the mood for a slow art house experience and I admit I was slightly bored in patches but I think that might be more down to me than the film.

Also watched this last week and thought it was amazing. Original Finnish cinema release was 3 hours long but for some reason the international release is only 133 minutes. Was also made into a 5x50min TV series that I'll watch in the future.

Quote
The Unknown Soldier (Finnish: Tuntematon sotilas, Swedish: Okänd soldat) is a 2017 Finnish war drama independent film and the third adaption of the 1954 bestselling Finnish classic novel of the same name by Väinö Linna, a book considered part of national legacy.[5][6] Directed by Aku Louhimies, it is the first one based on the novel's manuscript version, Sotaromaani ("the war novel"). The previous two film adaptations were released in 1955 and 1985. The World War II film follows a machine gun company (Finnish: konekiväärikomppania) of the Finnish Army from a frog perspective during the Continuation War between Finland and the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1944. It was the most expensive Finnish motion picture at its release with a budget of 7 million euros.

It is engrained into parts of society over here.

I mean, it’s probably not the best example to use. As it seems about 90% of the construction industry in the UK is racist in one way or another. But when I was an apprentice, if you were pulling cables, trying to lift something heavy etc. The go-to ‘saying’ that was used on numerous sites was often “imagine you’re trying to get a black man off your mother/sister.”

I mean it’s a pretty weird thing to say in the first place. But not sure why skin colour is even mentioned?

Some of these blokes were absolute helmets and clearly massively racist t***s. Others seemed like decent enough people. Who are probably just too stupid/ignorant to realise how offensive and hurtful saying something like that is.

People need to calm down about the Liam Neeson thing -- his actual interview was about how much he abhors personal revenge and mob justice, precisely because it clouds one's judgment in time of crisis. There have been stories over the years of aggrieved black mothers wanting to kill "whitey" for assaulting/killing their kids, of white families wanting to deport "all mexicans" for the crime committed by a single illegal, etc. Neeson, from what I gather from the interview, was highlighting precisely how easily one can fall prey to irrational emotions when one's loved one is harmed. He comes out and says he's ashamed of even thinking like that. It's actually pretty brave to come out with such honesty knowing what a pile-on it will result in on social media -- as it already has. People have "cancelled" Liam Neeson. It's absurd. Every single one of us has had irrational, dark thoughts, only none of us would broadcast them in an interview, so we can all pretend to be rational beings 100% of the time.

That being said, it's of course insane to think the way he did in his time of grief, but I'm glad he's admitted that openly. Scary being a brown person to think people would think that way (as someone who's actually been at the end of vicious racism myself).

I was talking to a mate the other day, and we both agreed that humans are seemingly incapable of not being assholes to each other. Even when you take out race, a population will find something else to be prejudiced against a section of its own populace about: religion, caste, class, skin tone, etc. Humans just suck, in general. We have a long way to go to become an enlightened species -- thankfully we've made lots of progress in the last 100 years alone. Long may it continue.

People need to calm down about the Liam Neeson thing -- his actual interview was about how much he abhors personal revenge and mob justice, precisely because it clouds one's judgment in time of crisis. There have been stories over the years of aggrieved black mothers wanting to kill "whitey" for assaulting/killing their kids, of white families wanting to deport "all mexicans" for the crime committed by a single illegal, etc. Neeson, from what I gather from the interview, was highlighting precisely how easily one can fall prey to irrational emotions when one's loved one is harmed. He comes out and says he's ashamed of even thinking like that. It's actually pretty brave to come out with such honesty knowing what a pile-on it will result in on social media -- as it already has. People have "cancelled" Liam Neeson. It's absurd. Every single one of us has had irrational, dark thoughts, only none of us would broadcast them in an interview, so we can all pretend to be rational beings 100% of the time.

That being said, it's of course insane to think the way he did in his time of grief, but I'm glad he's admitted that openly. Scary being a brown person to think people would think that way (as someone who's actually been at the end of vicious racism myself).

:lol: Is it revenge when you're not killing the person responsible? He just wanted to sate some bloodlust. He shouldn't get canceled (I'm personally not f***ing with him anymore) but he shouldn't get a pass because admitting some s*** like that when you're powerful is brave, either. I want to know if he'd have been out there if she said a white guy raped her.

No, of course not, I'm not saying at all that how he thought was right.

I'm pretty sure he'd be after wanting to kill anyone who looked like the perp who'd raped her -- white, hispanic, black, etc.

I grew up in a city divided by religious sectarian violence in my early years (in India), and one of the things that invariably kicked off a week or month of bloody violence between Hindus & Muslims was mob revenge and killings of innocent people bearing the brunt of some crime committed by a Hindu or Muslim towards a member of the opposite team.

All I'm saying is, I've seen this behaviour from humans all my life, and what Neeson said lines up pretty well with this experience.

“I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black b******’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could,” another pause, “kill him.”

Neeson clearly knows what he’s saying, and how shocking it is, how appalling. “It took me a week, maybe a week and a half, to go through that. She would say, ‘Where are you going?’ and I would say, ‘I’m just going out for a walk.’ You know? ‘What’s wrong?’ ‘No no, nothing’s wrong.’”

Hahaha. Yeah, it's strange behaviour. I mean, I get it, an uneducated kid who grew up in a violent Northern Ireland harbouring racist thoughts, all of which came to a head in a rush of emotion when something truly bad happened. It's just that most people would wait and let it pass, not roam the streets with a "cosh" (whatever the heck that is) looking to nut a black person ("any black person will do, tbh").

I still give him credit for opening up, as clearly he's not that same person anymore, and has learned from it. I give props to any human willing to examine his or her own depravity to improve character. He's clearly done that.

Neeson is obviously fed up with acting, fair play to go out in a blaze of unglory.  :lol:

I mean I get what DJ is saying, and totally get what mike feels as well (as much as I can), but I just can’t get my head around why he’d even go there. Express it in a movie, direct it, write it but to come out with it, wow.

What I will say chances are if it was a white Englishman who raped her he’d react the same, but my issue is the question, what colour was he? That’s a bizarre reaction to a rape. Not what did he look like? Maybe then I’d understand the link to then go round looking for someone to take it out on however it seemed premeditated with a question like that. Oh then there the timeline, a f***ing week.

Anyway, last time we see neeson in a film.

Part of me gets Neeson's reaction, the other bit can't look past his initial questioning.

My mate's brother did near enough the same thing as Neeson when my mate was stabbed in the eye with a screwdriver. At midnight, he'd go to the park where it happened and hope to be accosted by someone. I get the primal revenge bit. The brother may have handed out disproportionate revenge to some kid who "only" tried to mug him, and didn't deserve the commensurate revenge for his little brother being stabbed. Just a sorta unlucky lightning rod.

The questioning bit is whack though. Going for colour second question when no definite ID is gleaned from question one.

Quote
The Taken star claimed he would have acted in the same way if his friend's assailant had been white.

He told ABC: "If she had said an Irish or a Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian I would - I know I would - have had the same effect. I was trying to show honour, to stand up for my dear friend in this terribly medieval fashion."

Neeson said of his actions: "It shocked me and it hurt me. I did seek help."

The actor said he went to confession, and went power walking for two hours every day, to try to work through his anger.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-47133868

"a Scot or a Brit" - no excuse for Neeson to make this mistake.

Since watching Trainspotting 2 for the second time a good few months back I’ve not only watched the first film again, but also read the book again and so the other night I gave the follow up film another chance to win me over. And win me over it did, I’ve come not only understand it better in relation to the first film, but also accept it as an important part of the whole story and each of the characters 20 years on. I’ve concluded it’s a great follow up and a great film on its own. Obviously nowhere near as good as the first film, but it’s so much better than it was to me in first and second viewing.

Nightcrawler - Holds up on second viewing. Really silly and far-fetched at times. But I guess that was the style they were going for. Gylenhaal, or however you spell it. Is really good at being a creep.

Ill Manors - great soundtrack. Pretty depressing and the plot all tied in a bit too obvioisly. But I really like Plan B and thought this was decent enough. Forgot to watch it when it came out. Didn’t realise it was like 6-7 years old.

Great film and album, harsh as hell in places. Get your point around the ending, made it feel a little more "filmy".

Watched The Hate U Give. Remember seeing the trailer for this assuming the title has some Tupac connotations and sure enough he was referenced a few times. Was a good film with a powerful message, I'm really not liking America these days.

First Man - Great, loved every minute of it, bar the sad bits with his daughter.  Shame we never went to the moon and it's a pack of lies though.  Love 'whitey's going to the moon today', sang it the rest of the night. :blush:

Aquaman - I'll get into trouble for this, but I thought it was really good.  It's a total state and looks embarrassing, but f***ing love Momoa.

Gave ‘It Follows’ another chance. Not really that into the horror genre, but I still don’t get the rave reviews? It’s well put together, I guess. The retro-futurism stuff is interesting, as is the premise of it and the message behind it. But I founf it pretty boring and not particularly scary.

Mixed bag. Can't get mad at early 90's CGI, though. Even I remember that s*** looking real when the movie came out.

Speaking of CGI, in Bohemian Rhapsody the scene at Live Aid looked so obviously CGI. But if you look back at the original performance, it looks exactly the same. So there is the problem with CGI, it doesn't look CGI enough to be realistic.

The FX were amazing then (and still now). Arnie's shotgun twirl is iconic. The spillway chase scene, also iconic. The pepsi product placement and the guy getting mowed down in the narrow hallway - hilarious. Establishing Sarah Connor as a badass and not just hapless victim being chased, also good. Kid is a kid, absolutely terrible, no question, moving on. T-1000 morphing through the bars of the cell door - amazing. Cyberdyne escape, also epic. 0 kills. Bill Paxton getting s*** on a second time by a terminator, hilarious. The ending, heartbreaking.

I haven't done the proper research but I feel like it really elevated the action genre from 91 onwards

what i liked about it, in the same way as alien/aliens is that it took a simple stripped-down idea of a movie (T1 basically a slasher/chase film) and blew it up into something else successfully

Mike's just made me realise why I've always found a perplexing sort of resemblance between my dad and Arnold Schwarzenegger, even though they couldn't look more different. I watched T2 so much as a kid that I basically assumed the role of John Connor and the dying dad emotion has somehow always pervaded. It makes so much sense but I never joined the dots until now. Thanks, Mike.

:lol: Always a pleasure, York. I don't think your experience is uncommon. They go well out of their way to make Arnold a surrogate dad for the kid. Watching them both essentially for the first time back to back is jarring. T2 is pretty much a comedy in comparison.

Genuinely chuffed for her.  Listened to the podcast she did with Tennant and she’s ridiculously grounded.  You could tell she was massively overawed by last night.

Was tempted by that the other day, but the sight of whassisface's idiot mug put me off. I've no doubt it's passable, but I think I'll wait until the world has ended and time is no longer a concern.

It'll be a nice intermission halfway through the "superhero saves the world from megalomaniac" collection.

I’ve never seen Terminator. T2 was good, pretty groundbreaking in terms of CGI at the time. One of those I don’t feel the need to watch again. That series isn’t my cup of tea.

Terminator is f***ing miles better. It's right beneath Predator, imo. It's f***ing incredible. It's 80's as f***, but it's fantastic.

It's streaming on Prime, D.

Terminator is f***ing unbelievable like. 35 years later, still watch it whenever it's on. Cannot beat the scene in Tech Noir when she knocks her drink ower and the Terminator just misses seeing her, giving Reese the time he needs. Don't know if Cameron deliberately made a comment on fate in that scene but even if accidental, I've watched that scene a thousand times  :lol:

In more recent times

The Favorite - Love Olivia Colman but by Christ I hated this film. I know it was meant to be satirical but I just found it a grubby and crude period drama with a few stars hoyed in to elevate things.

The Florida Project - Hated it. Only one sympathetic, relatable character at all came out of a typically understated performance from Willem Dafoe. The mom character Bria was just a repugnant and unrelenting pig. Rude, dirty, stupid and foul-mouthed, inevitably raising a dirty, though not stupid, foul-mouthed kid.

If Bria wasn't stealing or savagely beating a supposed friend, she was leaving a dirty maxipad on a window because someone didn't bow down to her demands (ironically the one person in the film who showed her any love at all) while exclaiming f*** every few seconds to emphasize every boring sentence. All the while, her tearaway kid is stealing, spitting on cars and setting fire to buildings. Awww, how sweet and magical.

Galveston - Love Ben Foster, but can't imagine how he got involved with this. Supposed to be about a hitman who falls in love with a pro (Elle Fanning) but for most of the movie, he acts like he can't stand her. Does have kind of a sweet, redeeming end though.

In summary - haven't seen owt good lately  :lol:

I really hope the upcoming one isn't total s****. T3 is pants but is leagues above Salvation, whilst Genisys is a complete embarrassment to the point of being insulting. Blade Runner 2049 softened my attitude towards 'unnecessary sequels,' because it proved that they can be relevant if done well. The Terminator franchise, assuming it's never going away, is begging for something like that.

I'm not wildly optimistic, however. The Deadpool director is leading it and Arnie's involved... so you can only assume he's intent on tediously elongating this unnecessary parody of what was a brilliant and earnest character.

Pretty much devoured whatever HK action I could get, then it was 60's-70's Japan Yakuza/Samurai s*** and then Korea blew up after Shiri.

Terminator is a fantastic film, and it's a shame I was too snobby to consider it back then. Cost of being a stuck up c***.

:lol: Yeah, that makes more sense. When I was young - I mean, really young - I didn't give a f*** and would watch anything. I will always remember going to the cinema to watch Jaws: The Revenge, Police Academy: The Miami Beach One etc etc. I would get the Radio Times/TV Times at Xmas before the school holidays (TV listings in the UK) and plan out my movie-watching. We didn't have cable, just three or four terrestrial channels, so there wasn't much choice, but I watched everything. This is where I developed an intimate knowledge of stuff like Cannonball Run 2, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure and every single Bond movie etc. It was only really at college when I became a pretentious dick, then I went to work in record shops and became a pretentious dick across many formats. I guess I just never became a specialist dick in a particular genre.

The Predator - The bad reviews weren't an exaggeration. It's an insult to the franchise. 'Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem' is a much better film. The tone of the film is almost comedy. The dialogue is awful. Fox must have wept when they saw the completed film. The editing makes you think loads of scenes are missing. Shane Black will probably never work again in Hollywood.

I'm in the minority and didn't actually mind it.  I mean, it was pretty bad, but I enjoyed parts of it.  The fact they want for a comedy tine was shocking, mind.  It was like they were trying to recreate the early scenes with Billy and glasses man (wasn't that Shane Black?) from the first Predator.  Just didn't really land and the fact they kept it going when there was an 8ft monster/alien thing on the rampage was just stilly.

Don't agree about AvP, mind.  They were the biggest let downs of my film watching career.  The first managed to be boring and the second was a mess.

Still blows my mind how they can get these things so wrong.  Predators was ok, I guess.

Lords of Chaos

Reinforces my position that Metal fans are absolutely the worst.

Timeline felt a bit weird to me. It felt like the film was set over the course of a decade from the way it was written and shot but I think in reality it was only like 2 or 3 at most. There were scenes where they'd decide to write an album then in the next shot they were in a studio recording it all. I know it probably helps the broader appeal of the film that you're not sat watching them write and hearing s**** metal band practice but it really threw off my concept of time in the film.

There's also some really REALLY uncomfortable gore near the start that I really struggled to get through but I do understand it's importance to the story.

I saw 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' on the day of release. 2 of the film reels were shown out of sequence (I think they said they'd been mislabeled) so the middle of the film was shown out of order (e.g. the scene where they are pulling bullets out of Arnie came before the T-1000 had even shot him). It really spoiled the film for me.

The last part is just you trying to disqualify my correcting your point. It's completely irrelevant and not something I'm in anyway saying to back-up my point. You're saying one of the highest grossing directors in the past few years won't work in Hollywood again because of a film that did well at the box office. It's an idiotic statement, and I'm pointing that out. If I worked at Lidl your statement regarding Black would be just as idiotic, and me saying so would be just as correct.

The Predator - The bad reviews weren't an exaggeration. It's an insult to the franchise. 'Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem' is a much better film. The tone of the film is almost comedy. The dialogue is awful. Fox must have wept when they saw the completed film. The editing makes you think loads of scenes are missing. Shane Black will probably never work again in Hollywood.

I mean, him having done the seventeenth highest grossing film in history, and The Predator doing well at the box office, probably gives him some leniency.

I've noticed no one is allowed to say anything about the film or TV industry without you replying to 'correct' them. "I work in the industry don't you know?"

The last part is just you trying to disqualify my correcting your point. It's completely irrelevant and not something I'm in anyway saying to back-up my point. You're saying one of the highest grossing directors in the past few years won't work in Hollywood again because of a film that did well at the box office. It's an idiotic statement, and I'm pointing that out. If I worked at Lidl your statement regarding Black would be just as idiotic, and me saying so would be just as correct.

I've been an annoying prick correcting people on here since I was 16 and in high school. Go f*** yourself if you've not noticed before now.

"Shane Black will probably never work again in Hollywood"
It's called "hyperbole". I was illustrating how s*** 'The Predator' is. Of course Shane Black will work again in Hollywood (even though he kept casting his registered sex offender friend in his films). Since when has being s*** stopped someone working in Hollywood*?

*I expect you'll list every single example of when it has.

I don't need to go and f*** myself as I had noticed before now.

Don't know if I've already mentioned this, but I recently watched 'Lost in London' with Woody Harrelson. I really enjoyed it. I can't be sure, because it was never the centre of focus, but I think it was all done in one continuous shot, which makes it even more impressive.

Aye. It's class, like. But it's infinitely more dehumanising than the worst scenes in The Pianist or Schindler's List. Not a film for the faint hearted.

Suicide Squad. 

Ugh.  Is it wrong to say it feels like there should, could even, have been a decent film in there somewhere?  Not sure about Leto's Joker either.  Is it meant to be following on from what'shsface (I genuinely can't remember even by the point of typing all this. :bong:) or his own interpretation? 

Anyway, what a mess DC's lot is.  A waste of that Batman trilogy.

fwiw, Jared Leto has refused to watch the film as they left his entire performance and character on the cutting room floor. Scenes with the Joker makes no sense. My favourite quote of his is when they'd set up a shot with kids toys in the background, to give a sense of depth and uneasiness to the character. Why are the kids toys in the room? What meaning do they have to the Joker? Did he lose a child? Is that what drove this Joker to madness?

Then he turns up to shoot the scene, and they've put a bunch of weapons in a circle on the floor, and they ask Leto to lie down and laugh maniacally in the middle of it. He asks "why" and gets told "it looks cool".

f*** outta here.

I've noticed the amount of smoking in films and TV seems to have increased. Anything set in the past, they seem to have everyone lighting up as if to prove it's the past. Maybe a lot more people smoked in the past but would anyone even notice if there was no smoking in these films and TV? Examples off the top of my head are 'Peaky Blinders', 'True Detective' season 3 and pretty much any film set in the past. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out that cigarette companies were paying the film makers (which isn't allowed).

Well I know Cillian Murphy smokes herbal cigarettes in 'Peaky Blinders' as I read an article which mentioned it. He's a non smoker.

I find it really jarring and obvious when these characters go through the cigarette lighting and smoking routine (often chainsmoking). There's no narrative need for it. If someone watches film/TV I doubt anyone would question the authenticity of a time period it's set in because everyone isn't smoking.

Everyone smoking in period pieces is bollocks though. Not everyone did smoke. Actual films made in the 1970s don't have every character smoking. Off the top of my head I don't recall any smoking in the Dirty Harry films. If they made a film now set in the 1970s they'd have everyone smoking. There's no smoking in the Indiana Jones films. They're set in the 1930s and 1940s. My point was the smoking in modern TV/films is unnecessary (apart from getting funding from cigarette firms) and they seem to glamourise it by having the main characters spend time going through the whole light up and 'enjoy' process.

The only reason for it. I remember when I was a hard lad (3 lighters a day), they were trying to ban smoking in films and on TV, and I opposed it, on artistic grounds. f***ing mental. I also thought banning it in public was a bad idea.

The Girl in the Spider's Web managed to sneak out without much noise last year. It's a bit of a mess really. 4th one of the series (the first not based on a Stieg Larsson book) and completely recast a 3rd time.

It's got some names in it (Claire Foy, LaKeith Stanfield and Stephen Merchant) and just feels so disconnected from the others. It's essentially just turned into a female Jason Bourne/James Bond film. There's a bit where Lisbeth has been drugged and beaten a minute earlier yet manages to get into a car, drive at high speed, off road, while holding a phone and in 2 taps on the screen it brings up a security camera video, rewinds, zooms in on a number plate, looks up the plate then tracks it in real time using traffic cameras for her. The whole thing is littered with insanely convenient technology and geography. The ending just takes the p*ss too.

Anyone who's a fan of the Dragon Tattoo stuff should avoid this.

Nowhere near as good as 'Get Out'. Daft movie that made little sense at times, had a few OK'ish bits and well acted I suppose, but still meh. Peele trying way too hard with the "lets take an analogy and make a psychological horror out of it" spiel. 3.5/10

Thoughts:

 2. Zachary Levi was great.
 3. I hope it gets a sequel.

It was also easily the best DCEU movie so far IMO.

Watched a few films on planes recently.

Creed 2 (7/10) enjoyed it. Predictable, but held my interest, and was never boring.

Deadpool 2 (6/10) started really well - was pretty fun at start but the plot is a whole lot of nothing. Still a decent enough watch.

A Star is Born (8/10) Lady Gaga was excellent, much better than I expected. Well directed, acting was pretty good throughout, and the singing scenes worked well. Maybe a tad too long, but it's a great watch.

I saw "Us" recently. It was fairly entertaining I suppose, but suffers from the same problems as Get Out, except on a far greater scale. Namely, nothing about the plot makes any logical sense against even minor logical scrutiny and the "twist" is laughably obvious. My wife and I both predicted it well before the midpoint of the film. Get Out was much better because the majority of the film was the buildup which was awkward, suspenseful, and funny before things were tainted by the ludicrous ending 30 minutes or so. In this one, more than half the film is essentially zombie apocalypse and the main characters are stopping to make jokes. The tone is very odd.

I am still not sure what the genre of Peele's films (Get Out/US) are meant to be. They are both seem to drift between unserious and self aware dark comedy and horror.  Fwiw, I think he would be better off just admitting that these are comedies. Neither film is scary at any point and the endings are predictable.

'Shazam!' is doing well financially and has pretty much universally good reviews (rated 90% on Rotten Tomatoes). I just didn't think it was anywhere near as funny or as good as the reviews lead me to expect.

I've not seen it yet but 'Aquaman' did really well financially. It's not like DC character films don't do decent box office, it's just the films often aren't as enjoyable as Marvel films and don't tend to do as well at the box office.

Yeah, I haven't read much DC but what I have read has always felt standalone but with an awareness of other heroes. Whereas Marvel has always had drop ins, outs and teamups throughout it's history. If Marvel hadn't connected them all, I agree we wouldn't have had 21 of them.

The two Burton Batmans were decent. The Nolan Batmans were decent too. Superman has always sort of struggled after the Christopher Reeve ones, and even half of those are poor. All of the attempted connected ones to build some sort of shared universe have been really poor. Whereas Marvel spent time building up the characters as individuals first before bringing them together, DC never really had a plan. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman, Justice League and then Aquaman. None of the films really built up any lore, which is the selling point of a shared universe. They teased a bit of Darksied in BvS, but that was it. They wasted Doomsday as a throw away threat.

BvS should have been a key event after a build up, with a Superman standalone and Batman standalone.
Doomsday should have been a key event with the Death of Superman.
Darksied should have been a key event.
Flashpoint and Infinite Worlds should have been a key event too.

That's four 'phases' right there to build a shared universe up for. During that you could have introduced Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aqua Man, Flash, Blue Beetle and Friends, Green Lantern and Lantern Corp (which would have built up towards a Phalanx huge event). Rather than take their time they shot their load before any foreplay.

Finally got round to watching Snowpiercer (it has only just now received a UK release via Netflix). I can see why it was such a marmite film.

It was so Korean - which I found quite jarring with a western cast. You also really have to shelve any pretense of realism to get something out of it.

 :thup:

Hadn't realised it was made by the same bloke too, think if I hadn't watched the documentary it'd have been even stranger tbh. I don't know if the whole point was for it to be from the perspective of Liz, but either way Bundy was so one dimensional and there wasnt a single sequence where I thought Effron nailed it. Even when they recreated actual interviews he didn't seem much like Bundy at all to me.

Lily Collins is an absolute dream mind.

Watched Us last night. A bit unfortunate that it's going to be compared to Get Out, because it doesn't hold a candle. Wasn't really sure what to make of it, was a bit weird. The twist ending was coming a mile off and didn't make that much sense in the context of the wider story; it just seemed like a convenient 'shock' which, as a result, wasn't particularly shocking. I didn't really understand the allegory either.

Ah well, was alright. Nyong'o is incredible to look at. So striking.

Awful is maybe a little harsh but I just really didn't like it. It felt like it was a good idea that started ok but just got progressively worse and key parts were just delivered horrendously. Seemed like they didn't even know what type of film they were trying to make at times.

Thought it was a bit messy and rushed in parts.  Too many characters, too much going on with the different story lines.  As if too many people had their say on the screenplay and two films have been smashed together.  And I wasn't a fan of several of the new characters - particularly the comedy duo from the carnival game.  Think they forced the comedy too much with them.  That left the original characters with little to do.  Buzz was massively wasted and the plot device "inner voice" thing was just dumb, lazy and ill fitting.  Not a bad film by any stretch, but nowhere near the level Toy Story 3 achieved.  For me, at least.

I know I'm going to be in a very small minority here.

Thought it was a bit messy and rushed in parts.  Too many characters, too much going on.  And I wasn't a fan of several of the new characters - particularly the comedy duo from the carnival game.  Think they forced the comedy too much with them.  Not a bad film by any stretch, but nowhere near the level Toy Story 3 achieved.  For me, at least.

I know I'm going to be in a very small minority here.

I can see that. You hold the others in high regard? Not a TS nut myself but have grown to like the more over the years, so open minded and just out to enjoy it with the bairn. I imagine some will scrutinise it like i would a SW film. I think this is one for me which will also grow the more I watch it.

Yeah, I guess I do.

I do think that the main message of TS 4 - about the old getting out of the way - will really resonate with me for some time.  It does have that going for it.

Only problem I have with that is I’d say Cars 3 delivers that message better. Not as subtle and as emotional, but still better. Anyway, still a good installment if the series and you can’t really criticise too much, not when we’ve seen some horror shows added to franchises recently. You just hold your breath and hope they don’t ruin things these days.

Rolling Thunder Revue

Scorsese's semi mythological take on Bob Dylan's vaguely acid test inspired 1975 troubadour tour. Fiction mixed with fact can be a bit wearing but the footage of a white faced Dylan spitting out classics like you've probably never heard them before is worth the entrance fee alone. A must see if you're a Dylan fan obviously, probably skip if not. Lots of Desire in there if you're hip to what I'm sayin' man! Too much Joan Baez though...

I didn't bother with Cars 3.  Was it Cars 2 that was a total disaster?  I think that's what put me off watching the third one.  Might give 3 a go if it is decent.

You’re not missing much. If you’ve got kids watch it, if not you’ve got no need. Better than planes.

If you haven’t watched it Coco is one of the best recent releases in the last decade imo.

Edit .l. In its genre. Tbf still holds it own in combined.

Thought it was crap, a real wasted opportunity. The idea was solid, some of the effects were really good but the plot went something like...

salt of the earth types can't have kids...alien kid crash lands 10 feet from their house, just in the nick of time before their marriage collapses...salt of the earth types raise kid in 5 minutes...kid reaches 12 and realizes he has mad powers...*writers ideas dry up*...What now? ok lets just start killing useless 2 dimensional characters nobody cares about, in a variety of increasingly disturbing ways...salt of the earth characters react like "eeeh no, couldn't have been our Stanley who just obliterated that person even though he just started acting really weird, was nearby and all other evidence points to it being exactly that".

That's basically it. The character arcs were a flatline of stupidity.

I saw previews for it months back and was really looking forward to it, then just felt so disappointed in what I saw, felt like a couple of 15 year olds wrote the screenplay and developed the plot or something.

Django Unchained, first time I’ve watched it fully. Canny enough good all-round entertainment. DiCaprio was superb as was Waltz and SLJ naturally.

I thought Foxx was a bit meh, brought nothing to the film other than his skin colour, picked for his name? His acting was wooden and didn’t bring any intensity or desperation. Waltz’ character was obviously a good guy, but look at SLJ’s character, he didn’t even need to speak to show you he trusted no-one.

Foxx could and should have showed the same demeanour towards Waltz without needing it to be part of the script/storyline, but then he’s not a very good actor IMO and this is maybe controversial but the likes of SLJ display a natural scepticism/distrust without acting because he hasn’t grown up with the same kind of privileges or more relaxed racial prejudices as Foxx as a black man in America and as a black actor in show business no doubt has.

Probably way too much analysis of what is essentially just an action film I know :lol:

I knew that would get a few bites, but honestly, thats how I feel. There is something about these movies that I just love, that get me at an emotional level, while also entertaining the hell out of me, maybe it's the man child in me, maybe I haven't watched enough movies, I don't know, but they're top top top tier for me personally. They just impact me.
