What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 888

Watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles when I caught it on around Christmas. It usually plays a few times starting around Thanksgiving. One of my childhood favorites. And speaking of that, my wife doesn't understand why so many people like A Christmas Story. She's oblivious to the thrill of unwrapping a Red Ryder as a little boy at Christmas, and popping a finch off her mom's bird feeder with it.

First watch through of GWH is a feel good experience but to rewatch it is to become aware of how stilted, cringe-worthy, and trite some of the dialogue is. Don't get me wrong, there are some good scenes...but there are others where it's like a high schooler wrote the dialogue.

Yes, caught this as well over the break. Hadn't seen it for years. Good fun.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Summer storms so no voyeuristic trips to Bondi to work on my tan and sample the eye candy so saw The Revenant this afternoon.The cinematography of the environment creates a barbarous stage upon where the narrative's sheer brutality propels a journey of revenge, and maybe redemption which definitely proves that revenge is a dish best served cold.

As for female Bruin scene all I could she was a a female bruin beating the crap out of the characcter Glass and protect her cubs For the life of me I don't see how the association with beastiality arose.

A visually stunning and viscerally violent film which was immensely entertaining. Even better with $9 tickets.

Check out another Robin Williams favorite then, Toys.

When a military general inherits a toy making company and begins making war toys, his employees band together to stop him before he ruins the name of Zevo Toys forever.

Sounds interesting. Thanks.

Not films but I got into some Amazon content this week while being lazy on my last week off before class...

Watched the pilot for billions and the man in the high castle. Both looked promising.


Spotlight soon, then I'll have a good read on the oscars placings.

Billions looked good indeed. Looking forward to it.

Spotlight was really good I could see it winning. And that isn't because this hit home with me. I was too young to understand the ramifications of this at the time.

I went to catholic school and knew it was going on but not that bad.

Toys is a truly bizarre movie. It has the pacing of a comedy but there are some really violent and disturbing images of Toys being destroyed.

Probably my favourite (not that it's saying a lot) film by Zack Snyder. Some obnoxious teal/orange colour coding aside, I always thought it was a pretty good adaptation of the (brilliant) comic. Don't even hate the changes they made to the ending. 4/5

(Incidentally, looking for a poster I came across some great Watchmen portrait photography here.)




Jay's first go at Star Trek with the characters from The Original Series. Ridiculous amounts of lens flare aside (and not really invoking the feel of TOS) I still find it rather enjoyable. Much better than its sequel and slightly better than the new Star Wars. 4/5




The end lets it down a little, but otherwise worth a rewatch. 4/5




This sequel on the other hand wasn't really worth revisiting. Suffers from the lack of Vincent Cassel and the change of director. 2/5




Was a little to young to catch this when it came out in '82 (it has some pretty graphic violence near the end), but finally got that remedied. Well crafted schlock from Mark Lester (Commando). Has a young (about 20 but much younger looking) Michael J. Fox in one of his first movie parts. 3/5

Class of 1984 was great, but I prefer the sequel, Class of 1999.

Victoria - Sebastian Schipper (2015)

 

 



Made by the same person that made The English patient and Run, Lola Run.

Done in one shot, that is good direction! Feels a bit too long. Laia Costa does superb acting, the rest is so and so. Might be due to script. The scene where they are playing piano in the cafe is perfect and monumental, and it seems so fresh that I believe it is improvised.
