What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 878
My review of the movie itself is probably the same as all those above, regarding the actual roadshow version though:
Though its run is probably over by now, the 70mm version of this film is awesome. Though the full potential of Panavision 65 isn't massively utilized, as probably 90% of the movie is shot indoors, but the resolution, colour saturation, and just depth of the picture is amazing compared to digital projection. It's also awesome to have no teasers and no Coke commercials -- just the movie, with an overture and intermission. I hope this encourages more films to be shot and released like this, I'd happily pay the increased price.
It's like cliffhanger at every end, but in between it's loads and loads of biased stuff. It's just too much. The editing, the music, the phone calls, the voice over - the hype. There is a saying from the old Nordic saga, when this man is invited to the king's dinner, and the king never stops eating and it would be impolite for the guest to imply that the king is greedy since he himself was finished before the king: 'Kill me dear King, but not with porridge'. This saying came to my mind - I'm in ep 8...
The directors are as one-eyed as the police, and calling this 'a documentary' isn't making it more true - it's making it more false. I really don't believe there is such a thing as a documantary.
All is seen through someone's eyes, all is filtered, but the directors don't make that explicit. And that is not fair, and make me feel they are just as manipulative as the police they want to criticize. Had the directors stated that this is their version of what went wrong, I would fully accept it. But as it is, just poor entertainment that I'd love my layer to comment. he might have a good laugh.
I'll watch this season, but more than that I can not take.
I liked Creed as well, no idea about the scene... I think it is kind of funny that we have two movies that are about the next-generation (Creed and TFA) which are very, very much retreads of the first movies from which they are descended.
Deadwood used the F-word a lot, but they kept it classy.
Ip Man - 1/5 stars since I fell asleep 20 minutes into it
akatskuki - great avatar! Big Trouble in Little China one of the best movies ever! 5/5
I like newer Woodie Allen movie a lot, especially Match Point one of my all-time faves now - maybe super sexy Scarlet Johnanson has something to do with that too
also watched for the first time old Carpenter movies 'The Thing' which was very good and 'Escape from NY' which was mediocre imo
I see you are pretty harsh in rating movies, i'd probably give Mad Max 6 out of 10, but rate Django higher at 8 or 7. I'd agree that Mad Max was average but why do you rate Django so low?
