Once upon a time in the west - Sergio Leone (1968.

 

 

 

If nothing this is too long. The luxury to dwell is long gone in movies.

Interesting use of zoom, sometimes I think this is make for tv.

But too many characters, and too obscure motivation for many of them. Think this movie is important as a forerunner to something else  or an end of a genre. 

The use of wide screen is sometimes pure beauty like in the outdoor scenes, but in house it's just messy.

When it comes to Leone, Once upon a time in America is my all time favourite. Maybe the best gangster movie, second to Godfather

This is a very entertaining and funny film. It has its moments of character pathos but overall its a 'hoot' laughed from beginning to end. Excellent sartorially inspired comedy.

Revenant

 

It seemed too long.  I think the survival/betrayal part of the movie was well done.  They could have done more development of the American/French/indian and trapper/soldier/indian underlying plots and history.  That would have added context.

 

Oscar worthy?  I expect more...

 

Cheers,

I really enjoyed this … not even sure why exactly, but somehow it drew me in.

I loved it. It's pure sadistic comedy, and all the performances except for Madsen were good. Also doesn't have that much of the typical Tarantino dialogue.

Crime wave 1985, I enjoyed this, not perfect but pretty funny, feels a bit like a David Lynch inspired student picture, in a good way

This was an ok comedy/adventure, James Garner is usually pretty good imo. Support Your Local Sheriff and Rockford were favourites growing up...

 

And 3 aussies

Vietnam movie, ok but I wouldn't recommend

 

The Square 2008. This was almost very good imo, but I could see people finding it very good. Smart script, good acting

 

TV, but my favourite thing watched the last couple of months. Lot's of silly cheap jokes and slapstick, highly recomended.

 

"This is friars hut, named after the man who built it. Fred Hut"

Rewatched this. Still an enjoyable film. Nice location shots and Jerry Goldsmith does another great job on the soundtrack. McQueen with perhaps his best acting job as well.

 

 

Rewatched this film too. The plot is a little crazy, but fairly similar to something you might expect from an Indiana Jones film - not meant to be taken seriously as it's pretty much a Boy's Own story on the big screen with Burton and Eastwood. Still lots of fun watching Burton as the only character knowing what the full scope of the mission and Eastwood just being Eastwood with probably fewer than 10 lines of dialogue in the entire film. Certainly must have been an influence on Tarantino.

 

 

The 2 leads do a great acting job here. Father deals in illegal immigrants and uses his son as his right-hand man. When one of the immigrants dies the son feels guilty and wants to help the widow, but his father acts as if nothing happened.

Polish political/spy thriller about Colonel Kukliński, a Polish Army officer who motivated by his horror of the Russians Cold War tactic of wanting to turn Poland into a nuclear waste land and deeply affected by events in Gdansk in 1970 decides that personal morality and patriotism is the best course of action against nuclear madness. A man of ethics he never acted for money.

A tight tense intelligent film with solid acting and a lot of bad 1970's and 1980's fashion. The opening sequence is medieval in its brutality. Highly recommended.

Every seventh wave...

 

Papillon is a great movie.

McQueen's best role may have been Thomas Crown.  If nothing else, it was perfect casting.

This is a deeply disturbing film that also showcases what was great about the 4th Estate. Excellent ensemble cast and performances. A solid piece of historical drama which is still resonating today.

Hm will have to give this a 2nd chance. I tried watching it a month or so back and could barely follow what was going on (falling asleep probably didn't help)

Kinda weird … a western with troglodyte/alien/cannibal "Indians"?
post #13439 of 14472

^ Really liked that.

 

Had forgotten how good this movie was. (94% on RT.)  Don't think I've seen it since its release.

Bone Tomahawk was solid. Plenty of reversals of traditional Western tropes. Have not felt squeamish watching a film for quite a long time, but this definitely made me cringe.

 

Watched Kung Fu Panda 3 last weekend. It's OK, lots of visual flair (the jade form of the masters is quite funny, with the whole stop-motion movement) but I hope it's the last one, the baddies just get progressively less and less interesting. Nothing as cool as the prison escape/bridge fight from the first one, or as funny as the city chase from the second one.
