What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 902

post #13516 of 14407

Finally saw Star Wars.  Drove up to Philly this afternoon and watched it at the IMAX dome at the Franklin Institute.  Grabbed a couple cheeseteaks from Pat's King of Steaks, inhaled them and then hit the road

Room   Watched it at home from Amazon.

 

Good movie...  It moves along is not too long and has some great suspense.  Jacob Tremblay plays the child and is very good.

 

If you have seen it-  Why does William Macy refuse to look at Jack?

 

Cheers,

My wife and I just watched the Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel that came out on Netflix. It was okay but nowhere near as good as the original.

A slow-burning French flick about a family who is surreptitiously surveilled by an unknown whack job… gets weirder from there. Atypical but pretty good.

Eddie Mannix is a studio fixer who is troubled by gossip, disgruntled writers, kidnapped stars and pregnant leading ladies all in a days work it appears. Eddie Mannix also wears some sharp suits and ties.

The Coen brothers latest has some very good comic moments and looks great, however I don't think its one of their best. Good thing is the cinema I saw it is offering $5 movie tickets for the next month so an enjoyable (cheap) Sunday afternoon at the movies for me and Mrs GF. 3/5

I think he didn't want to acknowledge a grandson who was a product of rape.

Saw The Witch today. I really liked it, though I am not certain I really 'got' it. Afterwards I read the Slant magazine review and I ended up even more confused.

 

I spent 4 years in Sheffield but bloody hell those Yorkshire accents were quite challenging. Might be just bad sound levels at the local Cineplex though.

 

 

Also watched that Crouching tiger sequel; oh dear. I was never a fan of the first one (for new-age wire-fu I'll take Hero over CTHD or Daggers any day) but this... this was absolute rubbish.

Yeah, I got that too.  I was thinking maybe I had missed something.  He was just a jerk and played it well.

The Danish girl - Tom Hooper (2015)

 

 



This is the story of Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda, artists in Denmark in the 20ies, Einar is the first to have man to woman surgery.

The topic is interesting and could need a better director than Hooper. This story is as flat as Denmark, and it is difficult to identify with Einar's struggle. He is more of a freak, than a suffering human. The script is too superficially and we never get under the skin of this person, Eddie Redmayne is not doing a particularly good act, and Alicia Vikander as Gerda does a better act, but then her part is more interesting.

Story is sentimental, just as his The King's Speech (2010). Clothes are not well made, and the same suits are used in too many scenes.

The visual is just too sweet, again and again it reminds med of my screensaver, too much and without any reason.

 

The so fare best movie about transsexualism is Xavier Dolan's Lawrence Anyways from 2012. He manages to capture the transformation over time and pain without being sentimental or theatrical, and he has an inspiring visual expression.

Bravo, Ennio.

At least Miller got the editing one. Vikander won for the wrong film, same as Leo.

Kind of thought Adam McKay should have won best director, because I am still amazed someone was able to turn that book into such a watchable movie. But I guess he did get the oscar for the screenplay, which might have been more integral to the movie's transformation than the actual directing.

Besides, what is Inarritu going to do with another one? Put in on a shelf and shoot a really long take of it?

Metro Manila - Sean Ellis (2013)

 

 




Quite ok movie about poverty, and the brutalized and corrupt society in Philippines, and the hardship to survive in surroundings where everybody is looting everybody.

While watching him in Earthquake recently it struck me that he was one of those people you instantly recognised without actually knowing too much about him.
