Re: Doctor Sleep (2019)

Holy shit. I can't believe they made a Stephen King movie better than the book. That's only happened like once (The Shawshank Redemption). Mike Flanagan really performed magic in the third act (where the book fell apart). He took the strongest parts of the book, and brought them to life in a really ...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Dolemite is My Name was fantastic! Funny as hell but also had a lot of depth. The film really paid homage to Moore's struggle and journey in the same way Moore would have - through humor. Even when it touched on serious issues it never lost it's undercurrent of survival and optimism. Eddie Murphy p...

Re: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

Took my mentee to see this. We both loved it. I actually think it's better than the first one, but it's been years since I've seen the last one. Great plot, albeit predictable, but it still kept the tension going, and final battle was dope. I do hate that Chiwetel Ejiofor had to sacrifice himself li...

Re: Doctor Sleep (2019)

I have low expectations for this. The book was super disappointing. Started off really strong, and then it was like King just gave up or had a rushed deadline and stopped trying. It'd be great in the movie fixed that, but it's rare a movie improves on the book. Still looking forward to seeing what t...

Re: Parasite (2019)

This was pretty damn good. Great characters, spellbinding plot with lots of unexpected turns, excellent commentary on class and what it can turn people into, and a nice mix of dark comedy and drama. There was a constant under current of tension that kept building up nicely. Really well played. I did...

Re: Joker (2019)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/09/movies/joker-movie-controversy.html Still, what struck me most is that what the film wants to say — about mental illness or class divisions in American society — is not as interesting as what it accidentally says about whiteness. For it is essentially a depiction o...

Re: IT: Chapter Two (2019)

Aww, man. I really wanted this to be better than it was. It wasn't really scary. I kinda knew that it couldn't be based on the first one, which wasn't very scary either, but I think I was still hoping it would be scarier. I also think it could have been edited a bit tighter. It was a little rambly a...

Re: Let's talk about...[Insert film/person]

Since Glass hits soon... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODoe7X5Fgik 🕷 First of all, this could be a bit lengthy from my side, so bear with me :D To me the video itself was really cheesy and pretentious. It's effective, so I'm not trying to discredit whoever made it (I'm not familiar with this YouTu...

Re: Lady and the Tramp (2019)

I really wish they would stop this "live action" reanimated crap. It's terrible. Looks like National Geographic with dubbing.
