Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Finally saw THE BIG SICK and it was so fucking good!
Brilliant script, and Michael Showalter was a perfect choice for a director to avoid cliches while retaining sentimentality. And I was blown away by the supporting cast, particularly Khamil's family.

One of my favorites of the year.

I know with every film someone makes the joke of a 'Cinematic Universe' but I'd love to see a shared world group of WWII films with the same actors playing the same roles across different projects, like how Michael Gambon has played George V in several projects.
That... actually sounds awesome.

Saw LOGAN LUCKY.

Liked it a lot. Think the small budget kept it from playing up how big the race actually was, which I think would've helped. Increase the scale a bit.

It's both the most Edgar Wright-ish of his films and the least.
Yes! I think in the broad sense it's the most, and in the small sense it's the least. The idea is totally something he would do, but it's the least kinetic and manic.

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

COLUMBUS. Strange movie. Pretentious as hell. The way the actors were directed and the random cutaways made it feel like watching an anime.
But I still dug it.

WIND RIVER. Holy geez! This was pretty great. Recommended.

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #33 - The Big Short

Boy there were some ugly shots in this movie. How do you shoot a goddess like Margot Robbie and have a bunch of shadows going across her face? Amateur.
Otherwise pretty good flick.

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

VALERIAN AND THE BLAH BLAH Oof yeah this sucked. It literally felt like a three-hour-long movie and was blown away to realize only two hours and ten minutes had passed. Some fun world-building but they just kept throwing new concepts at you until nearly the very end -- too much. It's also clear that...

ATOMIC BLONDE

Meh. Heavy on plot, light on story. Tried so hard to be stylish but didn't earn it. Theron's English accent was shit.

Another BABY DRIVER foreshadowing:











Pretty sure when talking about Queen, Buddy tells Baby "C'mon, let's hear that killer track." Later, the same song is playing when Buddy is killed by Baby.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

I dunno. They did sooo many things right. And nailed the character. I just think it didn't all come together thematically. Or dramatically.

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Loved BABY DRIVER! Jamie Foxx stole every scene he was in. I'd watch a whole movie just about him. Lily James gave a subtle performance I thought was even better the second time viewing. Kevin Spacey nailed it and really knows how to give a performance for cinema. Ansel Elgort still should've been H...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Watched LIVE AND LET DIE today. Embarrassed to admit I've never actually seen any of the pre-Brosnan Bonds all the way through. Was fun. Dated obviously but I'm usually capable of letting that stuff slide. Lots of action scenes that would've benefited by having music. Often I felt like I could imagi...

Re: The Hell With This Podcast #24 - Better Luck Tomorrow

Do you guys think the title is a bit of a play on words of "The Joy Luck Club"? Or am I reaching here?
