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.

I had wanted to see American Honey for a while now, it was recently added to Netflix so I got my chance.

 

it's a very enjoyable watch, the visuals are great, it's filmed in the 4:3 aspect ratio which I didn't think I'd like but it works well, it makes it seem more personal, almost documentary like. Overall the cinematography is great, with rich visuals and the occasional use of handhelds gives a more intimate feel. 

 

Storywise I found it very engrossing, it's a slice of life type of film, more character driven than plot driven, the main character of Star is an interesting character whose personality I enjoyed seeing unfold. The emsamble cast is balanced well, besides the main characters the rest were given enough screentime so they didn't just seem like extras.

 

Newcomer Sasha Lane plays the main character, she's great, her chemistry with Shia LaBeouf is electric. All the cast were very strong. The runtime is 2 hours 40 mins, it's paced well and doesn't drag on. It's a movie I look forward to rewatching in the future.

This was also on my list for some time too. I had it in my possession at one stage but never got around to watching it.  Glad to hear it's on Netflix. I'll give it a watch.

It's well worth a watch imo. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

Holmes & Watson. Despite all the negative reviews I kinda went into it expecting it to be stupid and that's what it was, but I still enjoyed it.

 

It's ironic because it basically played out like a subtle parody of itself which is what made so hilarious if you ask me. It seems like no ones gets these type of movies anymore.

Venom (2018)-IMDb I was hesitant to watch it thinking it be a rip off of Spawn (1997)-imdb, but venom was pretty entertaining and had some good crack lines to laugh at, I ordered it off of Canadian payperview last night

A star is born.

 

Definitely a movie that is divided into two distinct acts. The first one beautiful, the second one devastating. Both tearjerkers in their own way. What made it even engaging is that the Chemistry Between lady gaga and Bradley Cooper just radiated off the screen. Plus, would be remised to mention it produced some great songs as well, not least of which, Shallow. All in all, this has to be my favourite going into the Oscars.

Very touching & emotional film. In many ways, I can relate to the main character. I just really love coming-of-age movies like this when they're done right, they always tug at the right heartstrings and have a lot to relate over.

The King Of Comedy is like Taxi Driver in many ways. It's a return of the Scorsese/DeNiro partnership with DeNiro playing a character of Rupert Pupkin, a man with some sort of mental or personality disorder that aspires to be someone else. The film was kind of ignored when it came out, apparently, and was favored more over time.  It's a strange one because I'm not sure what Scorsese is trying to say with this story. I suppose it's a critique and satire on celebrity culture and celebrity worship. I think Scorsese is really interested in the mind and how people border on insanity and how it manifests in their daily lives as they follow the American dream - think of Goodfellas and Wolf of Wall Street, Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy. They centre around extraordinary people that go to great lengths to get what they want to the detriment of themselves and everyone around them. 

 

It's kind of hard to talk about this film without spoiling it too much but if you like Scorsese and DeNiro, it's worth watching.

Weird. The last movie I watched had DeNiro in it too, but it was Dirty Grandpa.😛

The Favourite (2019)

the-favourite-review-header-thumb-700xau

 

Went to see The Favourite today. Wasn't expecting too much as I had only watched a trailer a few weeks ago and didn't know anything about it going in. To my surprise, it was a dramedy.  A quite dark and twisted dramedy but quite laugh-out-loud at times. This film is written and directed by Yorgos Lathimos (The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer) so it's wouldn't be for everyone. Those that do like something a little different and dare I say, quite original, will appreciate it.  It's one of those films that on RT, 94% of critics rated it favourably whereas 62% of the audience found it favourable.

 

The film is about a woman (Emma Stone) who lost her title of Lady as her family lost their money and status. She ends up working as a low-level maid for the Queen (Elizabeth Coleman). She quickly uses her cunning to get closer to the Queen and the Queen's right-hand lady who has the Queen's ear and can influence her decisions, especially in matters of war and politics,  played by Rachel Weisz starts to feel threatened. All sorts of madness ensues which I wont spoil. 

 

I'd recommend for those looking for something a bit different. It's full of dark, humour, a satire of the types of aristocratic people back then, with sharp, witty humour.

A few more, some older, some newer, I'll try to brief. :)

 

The Predator.

 

I cannot recommend this film to a fan of the original, sequel, and even the Adrian Brody one, it really wasn't good enough for me. It's AvP: Requiem levels of bad, IMO. Just added lots of swearing, CGI gore, that really wasn't the best, Just for the sake of it. The jokes were just crap and if anything, distract you from the simplest of plots. I really hope the new RoboCop and Terminator films don't go this far wrong!

 

And the last few moments, oh my. Genuinely terrible.

 

Mission Impossible: Fallout.

 

An awesome flick indeed. I do enjoy the series and it really hit a home run here. Good baddies, solid plot, great set pieces. A great follow up to the previous one too. Henry Cavill plays a good bad guy and does what previous Superman actors couldn't so well, shakes that 'good guy' image well. Sean Harris is an awesome bad guy too here.

 

I highly recommend this to an action movie fan.

 

Killing Gunther.

 

It's no epic for sure. To be fair, I was starting to get bored of this flick by halfway, and was disappointed by how little screen time Arnie got here. That said, he was really having fun and made me laugh out loud a good couple of times. It's a simple plot of a group of hitmen trying to take out the legend, but with today's reality TV in mind. It was ok.

 

Not too bad a film, but don't expect too much.

 

Escape Plan 2.

 

Really enjoyed the first as it's genuinely a good flick, so went in hopeful. Oops. This is terrible, don't. I really have nothing positive to say. Not even 1 star!

 

Legend.

 

Caught this on film 4 just the other day again. Had to mention it as I feel Tom Hardy was on real top form here playing duel roles. I'd seen this upon release, but it was very worth a second watch too. I've a soft spot for many English gangster/crime flicks like this, but do feel this is one of the better ones.

 

I recommend this on Hardy alone.

 

We watch plenty of movies here, I could've added a good dozen, lol. Thanks for reading, until next time... :)

A great slasher that really captures the essence of 80's slashers and has that 80's mood and style. The cinematography, the music, etc, The killer looked menacing, too.

Venom.

 

It wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t good.  Don’t really understand the motivation of the villain(s), although the action was fun.

 

Now for my nerd reaction.  Eddie Brock was not Eddie Brock.  He was whiny and not quite the character he is in the comics.  He’s supposed to be an asshole who wants to control his own little world, and gets this symbiote suit that gives him that ability.  He doesn’t have the morality of a hero, like in this movie.  And then there’s the Spider-Man animated series origin without Spider-Man, where a spaceship finds the symbiote.  I don’t hate it, but without Spider-Man to be the character who uses it for good, I get why they make Venom a hero.  Wouldn’t even call him an anti-hero.

 

I just would have rather seen Peter Parker come back from Infinity War with the symbiote suit, and we get Venom in the MCU as a villain.

 

I was rolling my eyes during the midcredits scene when Eddie is walking through San Quentin, because I knew they were going to trot out Cletus Kassidy.  But, I am in love with the idea of Woody Harrelson as Kassidy.  Excellent casting.

Bird Cage was ok for the first hour dispite John Malkavitch's poor performance.   I was tempted to skip to the end, I'm glad I didn't.  The ending is the worst part of movie.

I've been re-watching the enitre Mission Impossible franchise.

Most recent was MI: Rogue Nation (2015) which I saw on Friday.

 

Image result for Rogue Nation poster

 

I loved it a bit too much.  The last third isn't as good as the rest, but it's a blast and has some of the most unforgettable action sequences I've seen.

Plus, McQuarries snappy/smart directing is a perfect fit for the franchise.  I hope he's the one doing the next two.

 

9/10

I've recently watched the entire Austin Powers trilogy. The film trilogy is a great spoof of James Bond movies that pokes fun at the various tropes seen in those movies, and is quite hilarious, with Mike Myers as both Austin Powers and Dr. Evil. Of course, some jokes are dated (especially in the third movie, Goldmember), and in my opinion, both The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember are not quite as good as the first movie, International Man of Mystery, but the Austin Powers trilogy still holds up to this day.

Next batch. :)

 

Red Sparrow

 

Not a terrible film, but it did feel longer than it was. Did like the levels of violence that was surprising and it's a bit raunchy too. Had a satisfying end in some regards but not a big ending, think I was expecting it to be more action packed than a thriller. 6/10.

 

Venom

 

Just didn't grab me enough. It's ok and Tom Hardy is really proving to be a great actor for me, but I didn't enjoy the human bad guy and the film was a lot softer than I thought being as it's a 15 here in the UK. My son loved it a lot though, felt like a Ben 10 live action movie to me, lol. Probanly seen too many superhero flicks that rock, Avengers spoilt me, lol. 5/10.

 

Halloween (2018)

 

I liked this alot. A few flaws and certainly not an original movie but overall I really did enjoy the latest Halloween and it's left me wanting more so that's no bad thing. Gorier than expected too. Solid 8/10 for me.

 

Dread

 

And now the one I'd seen before. I love this movie, I enjoyed the Stallone one years back but this movie really is a bit of me. Proper violent stuff and the film knows it, lol. Good times. Good bad guy (well, girl), and some good set pieces too. That gun ripping apart an entire floor is just so much fun. 9/10. We need more of these flicks.

 

Thanks for reading. Until next time. Peace out. :)

Recently got through the entire Mission Impossible franchise (which is surprisingly consistently awesome!), then I watched The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) a couple days back.

 

Image result for the ballad of buster scruggs

 

I loved it.  I've always loved The Coen Brothers' style of filmmaking and this has their best on display.

It's basically 5 short stories, some are excellent and a couple are okay.  

 

Highly recommended.  Its structure also makes it perfect for watching in 15-20 minute sessons.

 

8.5/10

Yesterday I finally watched The Hateful Eight (real late to the party, I know). I loved the hell out of it. Just such a cool, kind of creepy, twisty little movie with some awesome dialogue and performances (it's Tarantino, no surprise there). And that Morricone score! 

 

And somehow, I went in not really knowing anything about it beyond "It's a Western with a bunch of scumbags holed up in a cabin in the mountains during a blizzard", which is really the best way to go into a movie like this. A couple moments had my jaw on the floor.

Fell for the hype and watched the first John Wick movie.  It was ok but it tried hard to be funny and failed.   The music score was boardering on amateurish and the on screen text throughout the movie was annoying.  This film is a good example on how to make a bad movie look good with acceptable acting.

It's been a long time since I've watched John Wick the original film but I don't remember anyone describing the score as bordering on amateurish. Don't get get me wrong, you could be right but Tyler Bates is an accomplished composer doing the scores for films like 300, Dawn of The Dead and Guardians of The Galaxy and Tarantino's/Rodriguez's Grindhouse (not really my type of films but that's beside the point). He's also done video games like Killzone and has also produced one of Marilyn Manson's albums. 

 

Don't remember it trying hard to be funny either. But could be wrong. Need to re-watch it Have you any examples?  I do remember it being self-aware. They know it's not high-brow entertainment. From what I remember it was refreshing that it wasn't pretentious or taking itself too seriously. 

 

Having said that, I enjoyed John Wick, but the second is even better. And it is what it is. It's a throwback to one-man army action films of 80's and 90's. Think Commando. Think Rambo. It's ridiculous and not to be taken too seriously. It's a popcorn action film. But I think it does the genre well. It has what all those old actions films has.
