Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

The Cranes are flying. One of the best directed films of all time. The travellings, the photography... Also the performances from Samoylova and Merkurev are amazing. A great film. I started watching Soy Cuba last night. First ten minutes were mesmerizing but then the audio was out of sync. So I end...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Doctor Sleep (2019) This was a fun ride, but it's not without problems. One reason why The Shining is a classic, is its subversive nature. Doctor Sleep instead chooses to tread in a familiar narrative. It's a testament to Flanagan's talent, this film flows the way it does and I'm not talking just v...

Re: Disney owns 21st Century Fox Entertainment

I don't see WB restricting the use of 35mm prints after the launch of HBO Max. It was Disney's history in context to access for screenings, which had everyone in archival circles buzzing about the Fox takeover. And their fears did come true. Also Disney+ is a moot point. There could possibly be no l...

Re: Disney owns 21st Century Fox Entertainment

Oh, poor independent theaters are going to go broke now because there is absolutely nothing else to show in this whole wide world other than a bunch of old Fox movies. Disney the evil actually dares to decide when and how they want to release what they have acquired legally. Can you believe the ner...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

The Man Who Would Be King (1975) It seems like a lot of people including critics miss the point that first and foremost, this is an allegory of the British Empire. Surprising considering how often people rush to find metaphors in movies. And I think the satirical part here comes from Kipling's text...

Re: Disney+'s The Mandalorian

Yeah, I would be shocked if they continue this by the time MCU shows are launched.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Three Women (1977) Incredible, perfect and unforgettable. This might feel Polanski in atmospherics, but the characters are singularly Altman. And I think this is the first and perhaps only Altman film where he himself has the sole screenwriting credit. Both Spacek and Duvall are also terrific. I im...

Most of all, I'm annoyed that so much of the elements that pushes the plot forward requires me to read something. Newspaper headlines, letters, medical journals. The movie is filled with lazy, uncreative writing.
Yes. And direction doesn't elevate those scenes either.

Re: Top 10 Movies of 2019... so far

Transit may not be perfect but definitely far more than an ok film. Also it's a 2018 film, though I know why Vader puts it in 2019.
