100% agree.

That film seems very underrated/underappreciated
.
5-star performances from all the leads, and great dialogue. Oldman is fantastic as almost always.

The near-end scene on the WH lawn got a bit sentimental for me, but at least not over-the-top overdone; it was fine. The final speech/scene was indeed fantastic, really great.

Too bad that the actuality of what is happening this very day in that same building pales so greatly, when actuality at those levels should in fact be far greater than any film.

I actually think that not many people know about this flick. It’s so good!

#51 JUMPIN’ JACK FLASH (1986)

Straight off her first Academy Award nom for the embarrassment The Color Purple, Whoopi Goldberg decided to team up with first time director Penny Marshall to create a proper 80s film. The result is an uneven, but pretty fun and harmless thriller stuffed with That Guys. There’s her coworker, That Guy From Seventh Heaven Who Was Me Too’d, the dude who’s chasing her, John Belushi’s brother, Falken from War Games, some Saturday Night Live Alums — even the chick from Ghostbusters. Whoopi plays a bank employee who does computers. (Computers being relatively new, that’s about the extent of it). She’s contacted by someone claiming to work for British intelligence, apparently in danger. Hijinks ensue! The outcome is about as certain as the fact you’ll hear the title song in a montage, but it’s all pretty agreeable. There could have been more 80s fashion. Overall, not bad.

Great plane movie, ultimately a tender comedy with a great soundtrack and really really good casting for the young actors.

4/5

Also thought this a lot of fun, going for a female version of Superbad and doing a good job. Sadly I think it did poorly commercially despite being a lot better than most of the competition.

Watched “Joker” last night.

Some of the themes were a bit heavy handed and muddled but overall I enjoyed it. Great performance by Phoenix (and I dont consider myself a super fan) and some beautiful cinematography and score.

More of a character study than a full plot but still very well done, IMO.

The Producers 1967

Full of absurd and black humor, amazing movie one of the best I've seen. Sure it's way over the top but sort of the point, I had tons of fun.

amazing hahaha

An early contender for #menswear film of the year.

Took a while to get going, but once it did, I enjoyed it. Worth it just for lowbrow Hugh Grant with janky teeth. Probably best not to overthink the plot, though.

The book was excellent but so, so incredibly dark and depressing.

I'd love to watch the movie as it looks fantastic but I'm sure that it's also very dark and depressing.
I've never hidden my Catholicism on here and I read the book a couple years ago in Japan. An interesting coincidence: on the last day of the convention I walked out a different door and saw an interesting-looking church and popped in. It turns out it was on the site of one of the massacres referenced in the book, and my visit was before catching a train to the Tokyo Museum where the famous fumies are located.

Anyway yeah, the book was a slog and I'm semi-interested in seeing the movie because I know it will be well-portrayed but I want a bit more escapism.

Watched "Amadeus" for IIRC the third or fourth time. Such a great film......right?

Now this is what I'm talmbout. Guns, explosions, car chases, helicopter crashes, traditional morals. But I feel like they should have saved this title for the next sequel. (BAD BOYS 4 LIFE... Come on! Somebody didn't plan ahead!)
DUDE I AM ACTUALLY IN THIS MOVIE

#26 SPACE CAMP (1986)

Behold: the theatrical release that got away! Remember when movies were advertised in newspapers? (Remember newspapers?). Fridays, these ads would balloon from a mere square inch to a quarter page, a half page, a FULL PAGE AD FOR SPACE CAMP, THE MOVIE I HAD TO SEE!!!1

And who wouldn’t covet this tasty offering? Just look. It’s got a real spaceship, the hot incestuous mom from Back to the Future, that gay guy from Revenge of the Nerds, Jennifer Aniston’s boyfriend, Hot Indiana Jones woman, the naked girl from Misfits and John Travolta’s beard, Kelly Preston, and some uknown kid named Joaquin Phoenix.

These hot people are gathered at Space Camp, a program for — wait, high schoolers? Hm... — to experience, virtually, the magic of space. Through some crazy mishap, they are actually, virtually, launched into space — with only their wits and Tom Skerrit to get them back down.

It’s really not a bad family-ish movie, competently filmed, and the cast and period heighten the enjoyment.

A colored and half the cast is ladies? PC casting gone amok. Films these days just aren't made like they were 30 years ago.
