Not a bad film, interesting if one likes Woody Allen's style I guess.
Good acting overall, especially from Elisabeth Moss and Jonathan Pryce.
Philip is a very unlikable character.
Yeah. A bit weird at times but overall quite enjoyable.

Exactly. In this condition the only part that is totally ridiculous is the cross-train shootout from window to window... otherwise it makes perfect sense… perfectly stoned sense.

Dunno I enjoyed it.

^ Snowpiercer? Me too.

Some guilty pleasures from the dvd shelf (well, one of them from its aluminum attaché case box set):



One of Moore's better Bonds. Heavy on the sexual innuendo, safari jacket and flared trousers. Barbara Back can't act, looks great. The amphibious Lotus is still cool, but the ending drags a bit with boring shootouts and explosions in the villains lair, with all his henchmen running around in matching red jump suits, dragging the overall enjoyment down to a 3/5

(Side note: Back then, the end credits announced the next Bond movie. In this one it's Bond will return in 'For Your Eyes Only', which of course turned out to be wrong. Due to the success of Star Wars from the same year, the next one instead sent Bond to outer space in Moonraker.)




One of Renny Harlin's few good movies (I liked his Die Hard 2 as well - at least more than McTiernan's return for the third one). Noteworthy for turning the classic actioner opening sequence (the hero's in a tight spot, succeeds, setting the tone and expectations for the rest of the movie) on its head. Also nice how it just ends the exact moment the bad guy is dealt with. Lean and tight, 4/5




Had recently re (re-re-re) visited the two seasons of Rome, so it felt natural to re visit this as well. One of my favourite Ridley Scott movies, along with his first three. 5/5

Two decent flicks I watched recently.

 

 

A rugby star seemingly has everything...and nothing. A fine flick about the disillusioned "angry young men" and kitchen sink realism in 1950-60s Britain where a man is desperately searching for meaning in his life while everyone else just drudges on with the monotony of it all.

 

 

Michael Mann's debut filled with lots of his visual trademarks. It's amazing from that POV (similar feeling I had with Le Samourai). Thief wants out of his criminal life to just live happily ever after with a wife and kids. But this is new territory for him and missteps follow.

Thief is a cool flick.

 

You have interesting tastes, bm.

Thanks lefty. As I watch more films though, I know that means I'm eventually going to find fewer films I want to watch. If that happens, I don't know what I'll do. It's a troubling thought.

Cliffhanger is awesome. It did the opening to Dark Knight Rises 15 years beforehand. Also I always had a thing for that chick who was in that Alaskan show. The show was shit, but she was hot in both.

So the new batman vs superman plot Is basically irrelevant. 15-30! Mins squawking over their two powers and we got nowhere

Janine Turner, from "Northern Exposure"? Yep, she was very nice.

Great video essay on Snowpiercer.

This is such a brilliant film with such a twist at the end been years since i've seen it but still entertaining with such a great cast and story. No hesitation 5/5

Been a while but never stopped watching movies, lot's of garbage and uninteresting movies but a couple of good ones (full disclosure on my filmaffinity user page, basically is a web where you rate movies and check what you're friends are watching):

The garden of earthly delights by Lech Majewski 9/10. Beautiful and touching story with Venice as background, very good acting and very interesting if you're an art lover.

Youth by Paolo Sorrentino 7/10. Good movie with good acting but less impressive than his previous movie, harvey keitel has aged very well (#jelly)

Swingers by Doug Liman 6/10, nice comedy.

Spectre by Sam Mendes, saw this on the theater which made the experience more enjoyable, 6/10, on par with other Bond movies starring Daniel Craig. This one is more enjoyable because of my huge crush with Lea Seydoux since I saw her on Blue is the warmest color (10/10).

Bob the Gambler by Melville, solid flick about a down on the luck robber, Roger Duchesne acting is very good and his dandy looks...7/10.

Vengance is mine by Imamura 7/10. Good flick by a fine filmmaker although Imamura is a kinda of Hit or miss (at least my experience).

Sicario by Dennis Villeneuve, saw this on theater too, I did like it...7/10, perhaps this combined with Narcos (the netflix series) and the book Cartel by Don Wislow has kept the fond memory of the movie, anyway Villeneuve is at the moment my favorite Canadian filmmaker (position previously held by Deny Arcand).

Which film version of Les Miserables is the best?
post #12870 of 14434
the Russell Crowe/ Hathaway was good I thought. But it's nothing like watching it live. A few years ago I grabbed a last minute ticket at the queens theatre in London. Story and performance along with live music was breathtaking; was moved to tears. Glad I got to experience it in a theatre before watching the film.

The film is good but it didn't move me
