What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 626

post #9376 of 9412

Recently watched "Possession" starring Sam Neill and Isabella Adjani.  Very difficult to categorize and surreal.  Some reviews call it a metaphor for how a child sees his parents' separation, others call it a horror, and yet others a suspenseful drama.  The film has a bizarre ending - making is a cult-classic for some folks - but, in all, it didn't do anything for me.

I need to order this too! So many fond memories of renting the VHS from the public library for a dime during the summers. We'd watch when it was rainy out.

It had an interesting style from the trailer, I'll check it out over the week. I typically hate "horror" movies but I can tell this is probably one of the ones I won't mind. Doesn't even look scary. Probably more disturbing.

Ordered Snowpiercer ondemand a few nights ago. Great stuff. Over the top but a lot of fun. Kind of depressing ending.

Rewatched City of God last night. Love every minute of that movie. Despite 90% of the characters being shitty people, they're all compelling. The movie very serious but at the same time totally enjoyable.

One of the reasons i had no intentions of going to brazil for the wc this year...Russia not looking much better for 2018, and qatar better be lenient about alcohol in 2022 or I wont go then either...


Looks like HBO has been playing a few more wes anderson movies lately...I know if was brought up a little earlier. For those who havent seen them id suggest checking them out I know at least 3 are on...djeerling/moonrise/rushmore

That's available on demand?  Might have to try and track that down.

It's an interesting movie that didn't quite work for me. Either it needed a bigger script or the existing script needed a bigger movie.

Had some nice, long one-shot sequences, though. IIRC.

I really wanted this to be great. It seems I'm alone as the picture is universally loved.
