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.

Been a while, seen a few too. Some highlights...

 

Avengers: Endgame 

 

Absolutely magic. There's not much to add really, just an awesome rollercoaster ride that's much deeper than a rollercoaster ride should be, lol. This flick is up there with Superman (Christopher Reeve) and The Dark Knight. It's a real yardstick of how good a comic book film, and a long term cinematic build can pay off. Josh Brolin is such a great actor for me and here as Thanos in Avengers, perfectly cast. He's like John Goodman in The Flintstones movie, no-one else I can think of would suit the role better. 10/10.

 

It Chapter Two

 

I loved it, I mean I really love both parts to this remake of one of my all time favourite movies ever. (Ok, TV show, lol). I've read criticism of the length and lacking character development, and I just never had those vibes when watching. I was thoroughly entertained by the second chapter and it had some very memorable set pieces that will stick in mind. I lived the drama of these films and the young actors really nailed their roles, enjoyed see in Bill Hader play a more straight laced role too. Pennywise was great fun and though no Tim Curry, he did a great job of making it his own I felt. I have the odd complaint, but hey, it's a horror flick, I have at least one for evey horror movie I've seen, lol. 9/10.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody

 

Take away the noticeable factual errors, and the tame telling of the man's at times, wild tale, the movie is pretty decent. Really enjoyed Rami Malek in The Pacific, and Joe Mazzello from the same show who plays John Deacon here, but this movie was a real showcase for Rami here. Couldn't help but smile at a line or two from Mike Myers, it's a good Sunday movie but could have been more and would have been nice to have more development of the other band members too. Cracking music though. 7/10

 

A few others but these are the one's I expected/hoped would deliver and largely I'm more than pleased. Good times. :)

I've just watched 'Between Two Ferns'. I'm disappointed, I was hoping more from Zach Galif., I didn't laughed much through the movie, the Interviews were not really funny here, and the few Drama bits were actually "cringe". The outtakes in the end were a little bit better, but they alone don't save the movie unfortunately.

Hey, i just got home from watching PROMARE in the theater. it's an absolute banger of a movie and you absolutely should go to a theatrical showing if there are any left near you. otherwise blu ray or streaming are probably also pretty good ways to watch it

Child's Play (2019) - IMDb not very scary  a bit corny at times, I liked the old voice better of Brad Dourif from the 1988 child's play and sequel's, the doll looks aren't as scary as the original either, don't waste any money  on this if you can!..

Funnily enough I just got done watching this too. Been meaning to see it for a while and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I agree it wasn't that "scary", but honestly the original movies weren't either. "Slashers" are rarely scary IMO.

 

Personally I thought Mark Hamill done a pretty good job with the voice acting and I liked the whole A.I becoming self aware and "learning" angle as it's more relevant to modern times than the Voodoo stuff of the 80s Child's Play.. Aesthetically I think the new "Chucky" looks more realistic in the sense it doesn't try to hide its animatronics as much. There were times I was thinking "I wouldn't like having that in my room if I was still a kid".

 

Anyway I wasn't expecting a masterpiece, but was pretty good for 90 minutes or so of some cheap gore.

Got this beast on blu ray for £2.  I wasn't expecting it to be great but was pleasantly surprised.   It had a lot of bad reviews and is definatly worth a watch on a lazy Sunday.   Probably best to steer clear of this one if you are not a sci fi fan.

Last night I went to see Ad Astra with Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga and Liv Tyler.

 

ad-astra-spry-film-review-1.jpg

 

Quote

Thirty years ago, Clifford McBride led a voyage into deep space, but the ship and crew were never heard from again. Now his son -- a fearless astronaut -- must embark on a daring mission to Neptune to uncover the truth about his missing father and a mysterious power surge that threatens the stability of the universe.

 

This sounds like a great story and it is but I felt let down by the story at the same time. Visually, the film is stunning and I thoroughly enjoyed it in the IMAX but the story, I felt, let me down. I didn't care much for any of the characters and I understand the story about making it human and universal and then bring it to space but it just wasn't really doing anything for me. 

 

The universal relationships in the story, the father/son element will be timeless. Also the fact that everything seemed a bit more grounded in reality when it comes to sci-fi. We didn't see anything that looked too ridiculous and that it might be very plausible looking in the future. I don't think the film will date badly and should be the same film in 20 years. But again, the story was dull for me. 

 

Major plot spoilers, don't click if don't want it to be spoiled.

When he meets his father eventually, his father just basically says, he wanted to be out in space and continue doing the mission. We're offered no explanation of how he would want to be so far removed from society that dispite the mutiny and the crew wanting to go home, he wanted to complete the mission. OK, he said there was nothing on Earth for him and he'd rather die out in space than go home but still, it offers nothing about building his character. Some poetic reason to help me identify or have compassion for the the father would have been nice. But nothing.

Just back from Joker. 

 

joker__2019____fan_poster_by_camw1n_dco6

 

I enjoyed it. Beautifully shot. Excellent casting. If you don't want to be spoiled who's acting in it, stop reading now... 

 

Actor that plays George Remus in Boardwalk Empire (Glenn Fleshler) plays co-worker of Joker. His character in Boardwalk was definitely an inspired decision to cast him in Joker. Another actor from Boardwalk Empire, Shea Wingham who plays as Country Sheriff Eli Thompson in the show, plays as a detective in Joke. Again, I think Phillips is a fan of the show which is produced by Scorsese and Todd Phillips said he was inspired by Scorsese for this film.  All this, aside from the obvious excellent casting of Phoenix, makes it a good film.

@Mister Pink.

 

I've pretty much always enjoyed Shea Wingham since Broadwalk in what I've caught with him so far, from that tough role of Eli which he grew into so well I thought, and he's quite good to bounce jokes off in the F&F flicks he was in as a more loveable character too, lol.

 

Also a fairly reliable director for me that's delivered some quality laughs over the years in some funny stuff like Road Trip, Due Date and The Hangover movies, so a change of genre/style could be interesting to see. I look forward to this movie for a few reasons which is cool. The director is set to Direct a Hulk Hogan movie with Thor as Hulk in future, as a WWF/E fan, that caught my eye. Could be fun.

Absolutely. I think those films can be perceived as a bit silly but comedy is so hard make and I think Phillips excelled in that genre. I really enjoyed those films, I remember owning Road Trip on DVD. And as my older, more-serious-when-it-comes -to-film-self got around to The Hangover, I thought it was going to be just another ridiculous comedy - and it is, but a quality one.   Actually, when you look at his filmography and you think of the casting, I think he's genius as casting the right people for the roles. 

 

One critic tried to shun him and in her article for Time she says in a tone kind of like "well, this is guy that brought us Road Trip and The Hangover." Well, he also produced A Star Is Born and Cooper, not known for his directing, I'm sure Phillips had a huge say in how that film was made. He also has a screenwriting credit for Borat. OK, Baron Cohen is the real genius there but I'm sure it was Phillips that made pranks into a semi-coherent feature length story, not as easy as it looks. But yeah, it's intersting to see a film thats dark in tone. If Scorsese was his inspiration and we know he has what it takes to write/produce and direct, I think, why not? 

 

Also that Hulk project sounds interesting. Sounds like he might be taking a mid-career turn and doing in to more serious work other than goofy comedies.

@Mister Pink. The funny thing is, Old School is on BBC one right now, lol. Always good to have a good laugh at something not so serious, and plenty of talent on show.

 

I'm yet to see A Star is Born but heard good and it's on the list. I like Bradley Cooper after The Hangover as he's shown to be a great actor, American Sniper left an impression, and Lady GaGa isn't the worst at all.

I always wanted a teacher like Miss Honey when I was younger. I still love this film a lot. Trunchbull used to scare the crap out of me when I was a kid, I used to think those scenes were so scary. It's really weird watching it with adult eyes, as I legitimately haven't watched it since I was younger. It takes me right back to those days. I feel like it's hard not to love a charming film like this.

Alita is a great movie for all ages.   It is geared towards teenagers but don't let small spoiler put you off seeing it.  Great story, special effects and acting is spot on for a heavily animated film.

In The Shadow of The Moon

 

Probably the best Netflix film I've seen. Love the visuals, the storyline was compelling, and the cast for the most part was very solid. I do think the film gets weaker towards the end, but that's only because the beginning is so good and the the rest of the film has a hard time keeping up. The 1988 scenes were my favourite. I loved the gritty and dark scenes, the rain, the crime scenes and the chase scene. They were all very good. The mystery of the film is good enough, and definitely made me want to keep watching to see how it unfolds.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot 

 

Incredibly weird title, incredibly weird film. I'll be honest, I didn't like this very much. I managed to finish it, but only barely. It's one of those movies that tries too hard to be some sort of masterpiece. The acting was pretty good, but I feel like the budget showed in a lot of scenes. The movie just feels sloppy. It mixes flashback and current scenes together in an odd fashion and it's quite easy to lose track of what you're supposed to be watching. I also found the movie to just be way too slow, depressing and moody, I can enjoy a slow film, but I felt like this was just way too slow in most areas. I just didn't feel invested in anything. The Bigfoot scenes were really bad, I'll be honest. It totally took me out of the film (and I wasn't really in it to begin with).

 

Would rate it a 4/10. Wouldn't recommend unless you really like character study films and a really slow pace.

With so many great films I've seen this year, some ain't gonna hit a home run...

 

3 From Hell

 

Been waiting for this title since I learned of it being made. I had mixed expectations here also as I knew this movie was never gonna be an Oscar contender. But equally, it is Rob Zombie and I know what to expect. Couldn't wait to get home and pop this bad boy on...

 

There's some stuff that I really did enjoy, the way they created many montage or documentary like elements was great. Not enough Captain Spaulding, but fully understandable and very glad he did manage to add to this. Richard Brake is a good addition, though it felt he was on auto-pilot a bit, but a good actor can phone it in on this type of flick and still stand out, lol.

 

Some of the CGI was poor and there was too much of it (I watched the making of, blimey there was loads) some of the new actors to the franchise are awful, but William Forsythe was a hard act to follow from the previous flick, so intense compared. The authority types here were very poor indeed. The story was ok, about what I expected really. The movie didn't have that raw edge The Devil's Rejects had either (which of the 2 movies prior, this is trying to be more Devil's than House of 1000). Music wasn't as memorable and the last act was pretty lame.

 

A real missed opportunity IMHO. House of 1000 offers curiosity and for a cheap flick, good fun with good atmosphere and it's a dirty feeling film. 'Reject's' was just grim set piece after grim set piece with glorious lines and a savage wit, a real nasty road movie. This, this is just meh. It felt too safe and too same without once feeling it would 'go there' 4/10. Bollocks!!!

Joker

 

They absolutely killed it. Atmosphere, tension, gritty, pace, story. I could gush over this movie all night. Joaquin Phoenix was an excellent casting, he put so much passion in to the role and it shows. Movie didn't drag one bit, and I couldn't pull my eyes away. I don't enjoy going to the Cinema, but this movie reminded me of how fun it can be. Thankfully no annoying people either, just everybody enjoying a really good film and being totally silent and immersed. Which goes to show how good this is actually. Would highly recommend people see this film on the big screen if they can. If not, it will be DEFINITELY worth watching on Blu-Ray. I'm buying it, even after seeing it, just for a totally different experience next time.

 

9/10 rating from me. Very close to a flawless film IMO. It's one of the best DC movies out there, and one of the best movies I've ever seen.

Batman (1989).

 

I've been feeling the Gotham Itch (😛) since seeing Joker and it's been years since I saw this one, but I loved it as a kid. Don't get me wrong Ledger's and Phoenix's "Jokers" are brilliant, but there's something about Jack Nicholson's I've always liked.

 

Admittedly the goofy plastic surgery "smile" hasn't aged very well, but whereas the latter portrayals are much darker and more disturbing I like how Nicholson just goes with it to be as eccentric as possible lol.

Terminator: Dark Fate.

 

I was nervous to see it because the combat looked a bit too fluid and 'detached' in the trailer for my liking. That it would take me out of the moment by looking obviously CGI. Although I thought it was mostly solid - liked some parts, some character relationships, the humour, and felt disappointed at other parts of the plot. Hopefully there'll be sequels to explore the characters and new Terminator threat in more depth.

Watched both Happy Death Day and Happy Death Day 2U.

 

Horror comedy done right, and a sequel that was actually enjoyable to boot. Plus Jessica Rothe is a babe so that helps things as well. Solid 8/10 for me.

Terminator: Dark Fate

 

What can I say? I'm obviously a fan of the Terminator series. And, like most others, 1 and 2 are my favorites. However, I did get some value from 3, Salvation and didn't really like Genisys at all. So what about Terminator: Dark Fate? Well, I have to say I think I enjoyed it more than 3, Salvation and Genisys. 

 

What I liked about it is the fact that the narrative moves along like Terminators 1 and 2. Actually, its quite fast paced. There's not much drama and quiet moments like in T2 but that didn't bother me. I was in the cinema for thrill. Sarah Connor is brilliant in this film. And I genuinely wasn't feeling like this was a film just tacked on in the series. It feels like a genuine Terminator story, more closer to the first 2 films. The CGI was mixed. Other times it was painfully obvious and other times it was superb but mostly OK, especially T-800 and the Rev 9. They looked great. 

 

The film has flaws but as a fan of the series, I'm excited for the direction it can go but I'm worried it wont be liked enough that they'll continue on and we'll get no more Terminator films.  I think it helps to go in knowing this is a sequel to T2 and now we have a nice trilogy. But this films opens opportunity for new story with Dani.

Dolemite Is My Name

 

 

Staring Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes, this is a decent look at Rudy Ray Moore's foray in to stand-up and the making of his first of a series of Blaxploitation films. Eddie Murphy is always engaging in what he does but Wesley Snipes performance is actually amazing. What a odd man. Strange to see him in movies again. It's a bizarre, curious, film about a bizarre and curious man, going in to one of the more stranger sub-genres of films.

I actually really like these type of movies.

 

On the outset you think they wouldn't work too well, but I think the emphasis on dialogue really works well. If you haven't seen it I urge you to see Buried. It stars Ryan Reynolds as a truck driver in the Middle East buried in the ground (duh 😛) in a wooden box and all he has is a phone.

 

It's even more minimalistic than Phone Booth since he's pretty much the only person seen on screen, but it's a pretty powerful thriller IMO especially if you're claustrophobic and have a fear of being buried alive.

King of Comedy is just so relevant today. Only watched it recently myself. It's quite underrated and overlooked.
