Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Vertigo The fancy theater downtown was doing a midnight showing of this so I thought I'd go. I was kind of underwhelmed by this? Like the premise is pretty great and I loved Kim Novak and James Stewart in their roles. And Barbara Del Geddes was cute but I felt like her character never really went a...

Re: NolanFans - the official 10 year anniversary thread

I was in such horrifically bad health in my earlier years that all of my pre-2016 posts should be considered inadmissible.

Re: Controversial Opinions About Movies Part II

I still think Memento does more telling than showing, which is why I rate it lower than most Nolan films, but that just may be because the story it's trying to tell and the concept it's trying to convey is just difficult to show. At the same time I think Nolan's best is The Prestige but even that h...

Re: Controversial Opinions About Movies Part II

I probably got riled up over it because as a Hitchcock lover Spellbound is one of, if not, the weakest of the dozen films of his that I've seen. I don't reflexively dismiss all attempts at pop psychoanalysis but this was so ham handed that everyone involved must have been so up their own asses that ...

Re: Controversial Opinions About Movies Part II

I would if it didn't keep my brain up at night. Now I want to go watch something and I'll be dead all day tomorrow/today.

Re: Controversial Opinions About Movies Part II

I thought that Interstellar over Dunkirk would be controversial given the critical reactions to both films. Dunkirk was best picture worthy, its just not as good as most of Nolan's filmography and sadly I think critical opinion has had too much of an influence on all of us. According to the academy...

Re: Controversial Opinions About Movies Part II

i love Interstellar (I called it a masterpiece on first viewing), but it's undeniably a bullishly erratic movie in tone, pace and style so I can hardly fault critics, who tend to look for formal skill and control before anything else. But if it makes you feel better, a bunch of major critics have w...
