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.

Seen a few films recently. Watched Serenity the follow-up film to the Firefly TV show.

MV5BOWE2MDAwZjEtODEyOS00ZjYyLTgzNDUtYmNi

 

Really enjoyed the film in the first half, seeing all the characters banter with each other was great as always. I also loved the long continuous shot following Malcolm briefing everyone through the ship in the beginning. It was a nice way of bringing you back to the show's world. The latter parts of the film kind of went into generic action spectacle that was a bit meh. Overall a pretty good film tho.

 

Also watched Enemy.

MV5BMTQ2NzA5NjE4N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjQ4

It's a film about a guy who watches a movie where he sees an actor who looks exactly like him then he decides to track him down. The weird concept and the fact that it was directed by Denis Villeneuve had me immediately interested and the movie didn't disappoint. It has the kind of unsettling atmosphere that I really like. I also saw Villeneuve's Prisoners some time ago and I'm not sure which movie I like more. Prisoners had more going on in terms of plot and was maybe a more satisfying experience overall, but on the other hand I really appreciate more minimal and ambiguous films like Enemy too. Both films were great, not sure what else to say.

 

Yesterday I watched Good Time.

MV5BNGQ3Y2VjNmUtMDdiMC00YTE1LWI5NmUtZDIz

 

This movie was like the opposite of Good Time. And by that I don't mean it's bad, but rather how the story is just non-stop stress and chaos. The characters just keep ending up in more and more f*cked up situations.

 

Really liked this film too. It felt more grounded than most crime thrillers I think with how unglorified the criminal life was. Robert Pattinson actually delivered a good performance too. He kinda has a stigma for being in the Twilight films, but he's not a bad actor from what I can tell.

Blade Runner 2049

 

I have never seen the original but the sequel gave enough backstory so that it wasn't confusing. The story is intriguing and allows for plenty of speculation and analysis, the film looks absolutely stunning, the cinematograpy is beautiful. I would definately recommend this.

If you'd like to watch a movie which combines absurdist black humour with beautiful animation and existential dread, then this is the movie for you.

Last movie I've seen (like a month ago) was Mission:Impossible - Fallout (2018)

 

Image result for mission impossible fallout poster

 

Not exactly what I expected, and a bit slow in some parts, but still an absolutely FANTASTIC action movie and a great time!

Plus it had some of the best IMAX shots I have ever seen!

 

8.5/10

It kind of bugs me that people just post the title of a film. Like, who cares what film you've seen if you aren't going to say something about it? May as well write down the film you watched, put on a piece of paper and scrunch it up and throw into the wind. :D 

 

Anyway, I saw BlackKlansman. It's a decent enough film. Spike Lee directed one of my favourite films (25th Hour) and I only recently watched Inside Man. 2 great films. Lee kind of doesn't go on a tangent favourable to the black struggle, although he's certainly more sympathetic to it. He kind of shows that whether you are KKK or Black Panthers, group identify politics can and does lead to extremism be it in thought or action,  and that despite all the hate for cops, there are good cops as well as bad cops and that those of us in the centre or the middle are probably in a better place. 

 

Ultimately, the Black Panthers are the lesser of the two extremists but the foundation is there for extremism that can help perpetuate violence. That's what I took from it anyway. 

 

Overall there's some laugh out loud parts but It's more like a comedy-drama. Also, I think people in the cinema felt a little awkward by the use of the word "ni**er."  It was a little difficult to watch some blatant racism but there was sufficient comic relief.  One criticism I had was that some of the editings seemed a little jarring.

 

MV5BMjUyOTE1NjI0OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTM4

 

Also the ending was bit over-the-top. It it kind of killed the mood at the end. It's like, did we not progress at all in 30 years? However, I understand it and I get it.

@Mister Pink Is it worth a watch for someone who isn't really a fan of Spike Lee's stuff?

@JaberDoe I preferred 25th hour hour and Inside Man. If you haven't seen those films you might want check them out.

 

Is BlackKlannsman worth a watch though? Yeah.. I think so. It's not the best movie I've even seen but it's definitely a curious film and if it's based on real events that makes it more worthwile. There are some more criticisms I have that I've rememberd since. I won't spoil it though in case you do want see it and I don't want to colour your view of before you even see it.

I don't know if you would call this a movie or a documovie or documentary but either way I found it absolutely amazing coming.

 

Won't You Be My Neighbor with Mr Rogers from Mr Rogers Neighborhood that iconic show we all watched as a kid and even my kids watched his shows and still do even though they are just re-runs.

 

It's now out on Demand and on DVD/Blu-Ray so check it out I promise you don't be disapointed

A feature-length documentary is what they usually say in the business. ;) ^ Seen that trailer before actually. Still have watched it yet. 

 

Last film I seen was Black 47. Started off a little slow but then turned in to a wonderful film about an Irishman that "sold out" and went to fight for the British abroad and in Africa. He went AWOL and returned to Ireland to discover his family is dead from the greed of the landlords and also a famine that struck the nation that killed an estimated 1 million people. The protagonist comes home and seeks vengeance against those who were responsible for his family's deaths. 

 

Great film if you don't mind films with an independent budget. It's a period piece of course so there's some history in it but mostly it's a good revenge flick story about a highly skilled ranger, being a lone operator, taking out people of the establishment. 

 

It's got a great cast; Stephen Rea, Hugo Weaving, Barry Keoghan, James Frecheville, Moe Dunford and Jim Broadbent.

Barry Keoghan has a bright future for definite. He was chilling in the exposition of awkwardness that was, The Killing of a Sacred Deer. 

 

I'll check that out though, Mr Pink. Even if it looks potentially schlocky there's not enough films that explore the Irish/Great Famine.

Yeah I really like him. He's a bit unusual to watch and his characters often are a little hard to figure out at first. I haven't actually watched The Killing of a Sacred Deer but have watched the other film by the same guy, The Lobster. Must get around to it sometime. 

 

I hope you enjoy it, schlocky is a great word..yoink... There's some anti-English sentiment (of course) but it shows good, solid English people too during those times which I liked - not going to spoil anything. And your right, there's not films really set during then. I thought it might be depressing and it is, a bit but only for a short time. The rest is a good revenge flick.

I just saw this:

mandy-final-digitalversion-poster-copy1.

 

It was just the kind of insane experience I hoped it would be. Incredible visuals, intense slow burn atmosphere, absurd action and dialogue as well as just general weirdness. Really simple plot, but that doesn't really matter when it's executed with so much style.

 

My only small gripes with it are that a couple of scenes lasted a bit longer than I thought was necessary and the action scenes were maybe a bit too obscured in darkness all the time to fully appreciate. Also I kinda wish we got to see a little more of Nic Cage being crazy(there's definitely some scenes where he goes full insane, but they're mostly pretty brief).

 

Overall I loved it and it's probably my favorite movie of the year. Definitely go see it at a theater if you can, the music's great too(RIP Jóhann Jóhannsson).

 

edit: Also if you're interested in watching this film, don't watch the trailer as it spoils a couple of really fun surprises from it.

Thank you Crokey, that was bugging the hell out of it. It used to say it in the topic subtitle before they were removed a few years back. 

 

A-Simple-Favor--500x760.jpg

 

The last film I watched was A Simple Favor directed by Paul Feig. I tried to enjoy this as much as I could, despite me just wanting punch Feig in the face sometimes, the film was quite enjoyable here and there. It was our second choice movie that night but got the times mixed up so we were stuck with this. It's a mixed genre film, like a murder-mystery, comedy-drama that's just outright silly at times and other times dark and mildly humorous. I wouldn't recommend paying to see it in a theatre but might watch it on Netflix if there was absolutely nothing else to choose. Performances from Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively were good. I'm talking to Anna Kendrick, I think she's a good actress but can't think of any other good movies she's in. End of Watch, maybe?

 

I read this quote by Paul Feig before the movie.. "'I got tired of seeing how women were being portrayed in movies...I’m never looking for strong female characters because I don’t like that term. It feels two-dimensional. I like women who are strong and weak and funny and vulnerable and scared.” - sigh.. I guess Feig just has a sh*t taste in movies and doesn't see ones with good female characters with all those incredibly basic human attributes. :D 

 

Paul Feig, needs to help females because they're weak (in the movies anyway), according to him,  and you got to thank him for it. Isn't he great!? He seems like a really deep guy. I hope to see more films with "strong and weak and funny and vulnerable and scared" people. Sounds like a real rollercoaster ride of complex human characteristics and emotions there.

@Mister Pink I wanted to see that movie based on the style of it!

 

---

 

I watched Paddington 2 (2017) this morning.

 

Image result for paddington 2 poster

 

I watched the first a few days before this, and I must say that the sequel is WAY better.

So much charm and wholesomeness coupled with great music and a unique (?) way of telling the story visually.

 

A great film.  A must watch. I also suggest watching the first one beforehand!

 

9/10

The Little Stranger directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank, Garage, Adam & Paul)

 

TLS-acclaim-poster-809x1024.jpg

 

Domhnail Gleeson is one of my favourite actors and also son of one of my favourite actors, Brendan Gleeson). I didn't know too much about this film other than it only had 65% RT rating. OK, that meant I had a 65% chance of liking it and that seeing as it's a mystery/suspense film and I was looking forward to a period piece, I'm probably more likely to enjoy it and I did. I think part of the lower score is that people are expecting a full-on horror film and instead they get a psychological drama (with horror elements) without all the jump-scares. Having said that, there were two moments when I was genuinely spooked. I felt that fear and suspense I got when I was kid watching horror movies I shouldn't be watching at my age at the time. The horror in this film is a bit like the violence in Drive (2011) - there isn't a lot of violence in that film but when it happens it seems more brutal and real. 

 

I heard that this film is being marketed as a horror in the US and while it has elements of horror, the story isn't really about that. For some, the story will seem like a horror and for others, they will quickly know what the true story is about. I can't say much without spoiling it. The film is "slow" and I don't think slow films are generally slow if they're intelligent enough, atmospheric enough and there's things that keep me guessing but others have described it as slow burning. That should be enough of a disclaimer to deter anyone who might find action flicks are the only types of flicks out there and anything slower than something like slower than Fast and Furious is boring.

 

The house it's set in is amazing. Every room is curious, creepy and a shadow of it's former self. I would recommend this film if you like drama/suspense/psychological horror. Just have realistic expectations going in as I already outlined and you should be able to enjoy it.

It looked promising as it had a similiar setting to District 9 (great film).   It's a terrible film, instead of focusing on SA/African talent they dicided to fill it with white boys running around with weapon skins and the acting is on par with celebrity Big Brother.  

 

Thankfuly I only paid £1 for this poor experience but lost time I will never get back.  Avoid this film at all costs.

A Star Is Born. Wow. I waited for this movie to be released for a long time so I was so excited to see the movie tonight. I think the critics were right, the movie is really good (good isn’t the right word to describe this movie, more like perfect) and the chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is truly amazing. Lady Gaga is a great actress. And the soundtrack is amazing. I am looking forward to listen to it tomorrow!

under-the-skin-poster.jpg

 

I decided to rewatch Under The Skin as it's been a couple of years since i've seen it. It's a sci-fi/horror which really stuck with me for a couple of days after my first viewing. 

 

On my second viewing it was just as good, there are several disturbing scenes which are uncomfortable to watch, the visuals and soundtrack are exceptional, they really add to the otherworldly atmosphere. This track is quite unsettling and oddly primal sounding.

 

Scarlett Johansson is great and it's interesting to watch her in such a different type of movie.

Ghostbusters for the trillionth time.  I appreciate this movie more and more as the years go by.  It’s truly the perfect combination.  The planets aligned.  The melding of geniuses.  Comedic genius, film genius, and visual effects genius.  As time goes by, it just seems more impossible for a film like this to happen again.

 

I wish I lived in a world where ghostbusters exist.  So I could be one.

Ghostbusters is one of my all-time favourite films and everything you said is absolutely true. Some films feel a little bit weaker as you get older and your knowledge of film gets more refined but to echo what you said, I can appreciate this film more and more over time. It's got that perfect Murray-esque sarcasm with deadpan delivery that doesn't take away from the suspense of what's actually going on. You got strange and brilliant character actors like Rick Moranis and New York city is like the main character in and of itself. 

 

Last film I seen was Crazy Rich Asians... My local theatre isn't that great for choice but we knew this got good reviews so we thought we'd give it watch...At first, I thought I was in for a bit of a stinker, but then the film opened up a bit more and actually got hilarious at times. It was cool to see a film mostly set in Singapore and with exotic looking beautiful Asian women (helps). There are some genuine laughs in there and it isn't too mushy (lets not forget it's a romcom). Definitely a safe bet films for couples/for her  - but enough laughs/eye-candy for the lads 😛
