Hardy is quite an other type of actor. I don't compare them. That's not fair.

Mel plays a character not unlike Martin Riggs from Lethal Weapon (suicidal Nam vet living in a trailer) in this pretty efficient, tight thriller. And as much as I like Tom Hardy, I couldn't help thinking throughout how much more I would've liked to see Mel as Max in the latest Mad Max movie.

Agree about Mel as Max again would've been much better!

 

I have only watched four episodes yet, but this feels like a perfect spy series so far, feels very Le Carré. Game Set and Match, based on the novels by Len Deighton

^ Game Set and Match looks interesting; I could watch that for Ian Holm alone.




Cute. Not as good as Midnight in Paris but way better than To Rome with Love, which I believe were the last two of his that I've seen.

BBC's War & Peace.

Two hours in, six left to go. Very good stuff. Makes me want to read the book.

Anyone seen the BP oil spill movie? I just looked at rotten tomatoes and it somehow has an 83%. I thought for sure it would be a total bomb.

Almost a feel good movie.  We enjoyed it.  Without the movie, I would not have known about Phiona.

Why is living in such poor conditions so beautiful to photograph?

BTW, we were the only two in a 400+ seat theater until well into the movie, when another couple came in and sat in the front row.

Cheers

I quite enjoyed it. Few more people in my theater, although it was a very small one.

Saw it with my GF and some of her friends, all of whom spent time living in Uganda...they quite enjoyed it and found it pretty accurate.

Rather cumbersome, too long and a bit schizophrenic, with its shifting focus on portraying an extremely bleak Soviet era Russia and the actual murder mystery, never really succeeding in combining the two to a greater whole. Strong cast, also in minor roles. Not great, but I liked it better than most reviews I've seen. Got banned in Russia by their culture ministry.

Louder than bombs - Joachim Trier (2016)

 

 

 

A family tries to connects after mother commits suicide, but everybody have secrets and tell lies. 

Very moving and good movie about coping with loss and the need for protection and love.

Yes, Norway can make movies - just not so often.

Saw this when it came out and enjoyed it. Will have to seek it out again.

Based on the tv-series Spooks, which I don't believe I've seen. It's slightly entertaining but mostly forgettable. Feels like a made-for-tv film.
Spooks was a great show. You should check it out.

This is such a great film, superb cast,script & direction. Visually full of incredible and amusing tropes, loved the Odessa steps homarge. I haven't seen it since it came out at the cinema.

Terry Gilliam is such a remarkable film maker. Have to get a copy of the Fisher King wore out a VHS copy of it.

Cosy afternoon flick with impressive cast, even though I much prefer David Suchet's Poirot. Interestingly, Anthony Perkins appeared to still have mommy issues.

Kenneth Branagh is doing a remake for next year (with himself as Poirot), that strangely doesn't have Benedict Cumberbatch in the cast and which seem largely unnecessary.

Actual quote from this one:

Still Alice - Richard Glatzer & Wash Westmoreland ( 2014)

 

 



Family bonds are strengthen when mother gets Alzheimer's.

Semi-sentimental movie that is unbelievable. It's one part lecture in neurology and one part sugar.

The best movie about losing someone in dementia is Haneke's Amour from 2012.

Didn't find this as bad as the reviews indicate. It's obviously nowhere near as good as the first two, but if you can ignore the silly time jumping story-line, it's at times actually a pretty fun remix of those first two films. Also had better effects than expected and J.K. Simmons is hilarious in his sadly too small role. Not something I'll ever see again, but I'm not sorry I did (I'm also not sorry that it seemingly won't turn out to be the first of a trilogy, due to the reception of this one).




This, on the other hand, was as bad as the reviews claim. The introduction of the many characters is much too long (but paradoxically also too short to make us care about any of them) and the baddies lack both personality and motivation. Margot Robbie is fine.

'Something funny happened on the way to Mars.'



This made quite the impact when I watched it as a kid in the 70's (though in my memory, those helicopters were black), so I was glad to see it hold up so well. Still efficiently suspenseful and with one greatly written dialogue after the other, it's one of the most satisfying movies I've seen in a while. It goes well with Pakula's 'Paranoia Trilogy'.

'I can't believe we spent 4 billion dollars to put crazy people into space.'

'It keeps us off the streets.'
