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...

Saw GOTG2 again. I liked it more this time. Its flaws weren't as glaring.

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...

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

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

ALIEN COVENANT I don't know if I liked it, and I'm not sure it was a good movie, but I appreciated the hell out of so many choices. Here you have probably a $200 million budget for a film in one of the most beloved franchises of all time, and it manages to have some unique images and take some very ...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

I really enjoyed COLOSSAL! Well acted. And for whatever reason I was really into the blocking and camera staging. Wasn't anything unique, but just solid. However... SPOILERISH I really didn't like the way the antagonist was defeated. Even though he was a dick, he was someone who was obviously in pai...

SLEIGHT

Not bad. Did a decent job of hiding its low budget. Better performances could've saved the weak dialogue, or vice versa, but nothing terrible. Ummmmm yeah it was okay. B.

DISNEY'S MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOLUME 2

It was okay. Coulda pulled back a bit in the jokes and the spectacle. Totally lacked momentum. But also the most emotional of any Marvel film so far.
Overall I'd put this in the lower half of their library.

KONG: SKULL ISLAND was a lot of fun.
If they had leaned just a liiiittle harder on character it would've been even better but alas. Vogt-Roberts is talented dude and one to watch.
