Re: Disney+'s The Mandalorian

This is very good, surprisingly so.

Loved how lithe it was. Doesn't need an hour.

Re: Fantastic Beasts 3 (2021)

Yates is typically as good as his cinematographer.

Which is to say, get Delbonnel back and you might have something. The problem is Delbonnel won't come back.

Rousselot hasn't done anything impressive since maybe 2005.

Re: The King (2019)

i dug that the fighting turned into primal brawls after .05 seconds - like, i've seen enough sexy medieval fighting give me the rEaLIsm It's not quite as good as Branagh's Kurosawa-infused Agincourt, but it is probably closest anyone has come to putting us there, in the battle itself. Before they r...

Re: The King (2019)

Feeble as drama, woeful as history, misguided as adaptation. I'm really staggered by the arrogance of some choices that are distinctly less dramatic. Not only than Shakespeare, but history as well, particularly the fate of Thomas, the Duke of Clarence. In spite of all this it's OK! A good allegory a...

Hella entertaining. This is also the third Frederic March film I've seen and I still don't see "Frederic March." Mark of a good actor. Veronica Lake is truly *chefs kiss.*
March deserves to be as revered as Stewart, Fonda, Brando, etc.

Superb actor, superb career.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Lol, Driver's screentime is half as much as Ridley. So much for being co lead. Ridley in TFA probably has the highest percentage of screentime of any actor in a SW film ever. But Driver was a bigger name beforehand and a much bigger name now so...? EDIT: Apologies; it is of course Ehrenreich as Sol...

I agree with it in some cases and other I don’t. I don’t agree with it in TLJ. However, I’m sure Scorsese, Coppola feel this way about almost all Disney product, and for the most part...it’s true.
Given they've both made Disney product, I wouldn't be sure.
