Re: The MOVIE Thread

As a theoretical Wiseman once said: "Star Wars died with TFA. TLJ buried it. I can only assume Episode 9 will piss on its grave." The only other hope would be the Warhammer 40k universe, and NOPE! Don't ruin it, for the love of God. Let it be, please. I'm legitimately at a loss for words right now, ...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

“I fundamentally disagree with every choice for Luke in The Last Jedi” – Mark Hamill He’s right, you know. ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is a bad joke. I hope all you professional critics out there are enjoying your Disney shekels, there’s no way you’re reviewing the film with honest integrity by hikin...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ was easily one of the most haunting films I’ve seen this year, it made me want to hide and curl into a ball. The film is based on the Greek play ‘Iphigenia at Aulis’ and takes a psychological horror spin covering themes of accountability, suffering, punishment, sacrifi...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Just watched 'Lady Bird' and it's up there with BR2049 for my 2017 favorite. A24 is on fire right now. Coming of age dramas aren’t normally my cup of tea so I was a bit skeptical about all the praise this film was getting when going in. I’ve been a fan of Greta Gerwig, notably in ‘Frances Ha’, so I ...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Thor 3 was alright, something I never thought I would say in my life but here we go: ‘Thor: Ragnarok' was, well, let’s call it interesting. I didn’t love it or hate it but do have some observations worth mentioning. Thor and Hulk both have been sort of shoved to the side in the MCU in favor of the o...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

It has a lot of nods to 1950's film tropes and style choices, a lot of the actions the characters take fall perfectly in melody of the song in the background or reflect lyrically what is happening on the screen which is kind of neat/fun. It is a gimmick however, so if you didn't like that you'll pro...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Well damn, definitely something(s) to think about. I was more along the lines of what you're saying of what Joi meant to K during my first screening but after my second watch, for me, it all comes down to that bridge scene with the pink Joi. I don’t think K’s arc works properly if Joi really did lov...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Just watched BR2049 again, the second screening was much more enjoyable and I now honestly consider the film "great". As far as loving it as a whole, I'm still a bit on the fence, the elements it gets right are easily 11/10 material but there are a couple narrative conveniences that are a little sil...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Heard that, I'm really starting to get into pure sci fi over these past few years. I honestly never grew up as a fan but I've come around to it, I generally watched the subgenre versions but pure sci fi is where it's at. Like this year I also saw 'Hard to Be a God' and that one fucked with me so har...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Nice follow up, it’s reassuring to have someone to discuss this with since I only know two other people who have seen it but they aren’t as open to discussion like you guys. One of them brings up an interesting observation that I’ll go into after talking about your points. I completely agree with th...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

Nice, glad you saw it. An honest sequel is possible in today's age, who would have thought? Sadly, we won't get something like this for another 10 years. Here was my initial response: When we think about the genre of science fiction I see it as a reflection of what makes us human, an ethical way of ...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

I watched 'Gerald's Game' today, not bad. I was digging it until the last ten minutes and idk, did I miss something there? What the hell was that epilogue all about? Also, ugh, that "hand" scene. Fuck... Also watched 'Ex Machina' again and I swear I love that film more and more every time I watch it...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

I kinda want to check that out, heard some mixed feelings on it but that always makes me more intrigued these days. 'Blade Runner 2049' was pretty good actually, I didn't "love" it but it definitely was a worthy sequel. Visually breathtaking but the story lacked a lot of clarity towards the end whic...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

recent screenings: 'The Bad Batch' sucked, I like the ambition behind the director and her decisions but this one didn't work for me. Watch 'A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night' instead. It's a Western/horror done pretty well and her debut film. 'Carol' was fucking brilliant, I gave it a pass during th...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

I'm looking forward to 'The Disaster Artist' after seeing the official trailer, holy shit James Franco nails the role perfectly, I'm actually impressed since I was very skeptical about the idea when I first heard about it. Looks like a hilarious dramedy behind 'The Room'. If you haven't heard of it,...
