Last Movie You've Seen

Crokey

Please post more than just the title. 

 

We don't need a War and Peace essay on the film, but at least give a couple of sentences of good and bad points and even throw in a rating if you want to, as long as you give some rationale.

The Deer Hunter, again a very long movie but the Vietnam-segment and the mountain scenery are amazing. Also the Russian roulette-scene is one of the best scenes ever.

Molly's Game, 2018

 

Great film (based on a true story) about an American Olympic skier, Molly Bloom who ended up running legal then illegal high-stakes poker games in Hollywood and New York involving politicians, celebrities and then eventually the Russian Mob. She earned millions from these games and then the FBI went after her and caught her. This film came a good time for me as I'm really into poker but what I find fascinating is that after watching I, Tonya and now this, that there are great films out there with incredible stories about female characters with very unusual lives and it makes for a nice change. I'm no feminist and despise forcing equality of outcome (not to be mistaken for equal opportunity) but I'm definitely on-board with genuinely good films with strong female leads, as opposed something cynical like the Ghostbusters debacle.

 

Molly Bloom is played by Jessica Chastain who nails the role. First noticed her from A Most Violent Year, a film I've harped on about enough here. Idris Elba plays her legal aid, a very likable, virtuous lawyer and Michael Cera plays the role of "Player X" which for presumably legal terms couldn't use the real Hollywood actors name whom I looked it up as is apparently supposed to be Tobey Maguire who's a total poker shark. Kevin Costner plays Molly Bloom's psychologist father. Great to see him in good role in a good film. Also, Chris O'Dowd makes a great appearance.

 

It's written and directed by Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The Social Network, Moneyball).

A Most Violent Year is really slick. I watched it like a month ago and I still think about it sometimes because it is such a great, nuanced and unusual gangster film. I think it might be the only gangster film i'v seen where no one actually gets whacked or any of those tropes are in play - it's just a very good story about a man is willing to do for success and how we define ourselves through materialism in modern day society.

 

ALSO has a bunch of Boardwalk Empire actors so +1

Boardwalk is one of my favourite shows. I'm glad you seemed to enjoy AMVY it as much as I did.

 

Last film I seen was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

 

This is probably the best film I've seen in the last 12 months. Martin McDonagh is one of my favourite writer/directors from 6 Shooter, the short he won an Oscar for to In Bruges, also love his brother's films too like (The Guard, Calvary).

 

Where to start, it's got veteran acting legend Frances McDormand as well as Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell. Sam Rockwell's character steals the show though. His character development is really the jewel in this film. Although you might think it's about Frances McDormand's character, and it is, it's really about Sam Rockwell. He's a really despicable character that really grows on you. McDonagh's trademark tragic-comedy is all over this film. One minute you might be really moved by the gravity of scene and the next, you could be laughing your head off but the comedy never takes away from the drama. It's always there as a nice balance to the dark and disturbing tones.

 

I found the film to be pretty unpredictable too. There was definite surprises. Overall I think it's just a smart film with sharp writing from a man that started off as a playwright then moved in to film with practically acting royalty or at least acting veterans with a boss appearance from Clarke Peters who plays Lester Freemon in The Wire.

Good Time

 

Pattinson hits it outta the park with his role as the relentlessly pragmatic swindler, Connie Nikas. Everyone he crosses is seen as an convenience to saving his mentally disabled brother from penitentiary.

A throwback to 70s urban cinema most noticeably Taxi Driver with visuals and soundtrack are as pulpy and unforgiving as Connie's nature. Grungy claustrophobic streets brimming with racial discrimination and a people displaced by their system yet still accommodating; all these, assets to Connie.

Another A24 film. Goodtime looks great. I remember seeing the trailer in the cinema and just being kind of moved. You've definitely sold me on though.

Superb film.

 

I watched this recently, it might tickle your fancy, I know you are studying film? Am I right? This has similar themes/setting as No Country. It's a completely different film, mind you but might be of interest. Written by the guy that wrote Sicario.

Hell or High Water isn't as engaging as No Country but it's a good movie. Mainly for the performances, powerful stuff from all the cast.

yeah i think i actually like this one after giving it another chance. It is just so undeniably attractive in it's setting and aesthetics and while I do still think that it has some issues between balancing the surreal and its commitment to telling a story, it just clicked more the second time around.

ace-ventura.png

 

This one of my all time favourite comedies along with When Nature Calls. Now apparently there are plans to reboot it and I can see that being a disaster waiting to happen. I never saw that Ace Ventura Jr movie because I've never heard a good word about it. To me movies like this are untouchable. It works because of Jim Carrey's wild, eccentric and over the top performance as Ace. I mean I don't even think Carrey himself would be able to rekindle the magic of the original it's so of its time..

 

i just wish classics like these would be left alone. There's no need to reboot/remake them.

Ace Ventura doesn't get old. It's just pure classic comedy.

 

Tonight I watched, Good Time.

good_time_dvd_2d.png

 

Stars Robert Pattinson in a kind of neo-noir thriller. I enjoyed it. It was quite harrowing to watch at times. I was just thinking how poisonous Pattison's character is, how he manipulates people, is like a classic sign of a pure narcissist and/or sociopath. I went on IMDB to find out who made the score. I saw a bunch of 1 star reviews. I don't know, IMDB has some stupid, moronic people. I don't think I would ever give a film 1 star out of 10. But then again, I sometimes wish that everyone had to try make one film in their life before they review them and see how hard it is. I mean, This film actually seems to make people angry. Of course none of them backed up their claims with any evidence or reference, so I never trust those reviews or those type of people in general. They seem to have a lot of feelings about things but can't seem to back it up with any evidence. Anyway, I don't mind if anyone dislikes a film, that's perfectly fine, just don't thrash it and not explain why.

 

I think the film is definitely worth a watch. I really enjoyed the score. People complained it was too loud or that it didn't suit some of the action. I thought they nailed it. It think's really jarring and suiting to whats going on. It's also got that 80's retrowave inspired buzz about it but it's way more manic. Sorry, this "review" is all over the place. Not sure what more I can say about it.

It’s hard picking a favourite because both movies are just gold. Although When Nature Calls reuses alot of the same gags it still manages to feel unique. My favourite part is when he’s stuck inside the mechanical Rhino and he tries to get out.:lol:

Ah man, it's been about 10 years since I last watched them. Definitely going on the rewatch list. :)

Legend of the Witches (1970)

CVDJBwNWUAAqLY_.jpg

 

An unusual film i stumbled upon on television one day, it's a documentary about witchcraft in the UK, giving the history of it's pre-christian roots up to more modern times. It features recreations of witch induction practices and a black mass.

 

The witchcraft musuem in Cornwall was quite interesting, there they collected voodoo dolls and explained the process of creating one. For every stitch when making one the creator would say "hate, hate, hate." One doll was in a soldiers uniform, somebody didn't like the officer in command evidently.

You should give The Neon Demon a watch if you haven't. It's from the same director and it's just as enchanting in its atmosphere. It also kinda suffers from similar issues tho.

 

On topic: I watched the original Cloverfield recently. I do enjoy these types of monster films where they focus on the carnage and destruction from a human perspective. I think Godzilla 2014 did a good job with that as well. I did also love Pacific Rim tho which was all about robots and monsters just smacking each other.

 

Pretty good film tho not as good as 10 Cloverfield Lane imo which might be one of my favorite psychological thrillers. Dunno if I wanna watch the new one since I've heard so many bad things about it and parts of it have already been spoiled for me.
