What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 538
Y N Y - have the The Great Beauty on my watchlist. Don't know that I prefer LDV to those, but have fond memories of watching it for the first time ~3 years ago with the in-laws. Started it around 11:30 pm and while most of them left/fell asleep her mother stayed up to watch the whole thing. Still don't know if she actually enjoyed it or was just being polite.
A few other semi-recent:
2 where the actual story is more interesting than the depiction:
reversal of fortune - irons was excellent
compliance - not worth your time
3 uncomfortable flicks:
terri - surprised i didn't enjoy this, but the majority of scenes were gratuitous and went nowhere
shame - well done. made mental note to never again watch pornography
we need to talk about kevin - gripping. tilda swinson was excellent
Fun ones to watch after the above:
bourne supremacy - pleasantly surprised - not a huge fan of the bourne movies, but thought this was a standout
wreck it ralph - good, not to the level of pixar standouts
robot & frank - feel good cat burglar / robot movie of the year for sure
heartbreaker - watched again - one of the few romantic comedies i would reccommend
And a few I finally found time to watch:
argo - i saw argo
stoker - i will watch any movie with nicole kidman. found this a little predictable and the closing music ridiculous, but engaging. last tony scott movie
a lonely place to die - uneven, but an entertaining suspense movie about a kidnapping in the highlands
killing them softly - a little disappointing, but enjoyable
headhunters - again excellent. one of the more entertaining movies i've seen in a long time. definitely worth a watch
the housemaid - scenes will stay with you.
have a few qued up:
only god forgives
four lions (thanks to this thread)
Love that film.
Looking forward to watching Barbara, which is now on Netflix. I'd like to see how it represents East Germany compared to The Lives of Others which, based on my admittedly limited knowledge, does it brilliantly.
Completely agree. I really liked this movie. What'd you think of the controversial sex scene?
Also, I caught the matinee showing of Inside Llewyn Davis yesterday. I hear a lot of people hating on it (including the people I saw it with) but I thought it was good.
scenes. I thought they were well shot and very intense but not out of keeping with the thrust and significance of the plot; young gilr's first sexual and emotional bonding. The fling with the guy didn't seem to hit the spot for her; Emma certainly did, and it deserved to be honestly represented. The scene when they first met after the bar and sat on the park bench, each unsure if the other was going to make a move was, I found, absolutely electrifying.
