Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood I actually haven’t been following this film prior to seeing it, so I was a bit surprised by Tarantino using the Manson’s family as merely a backdrop in the film. They were more notable in the press to the lead-up film's release. This is a story about a fading star and ...

Re: What's the last book you've read?

I just finished reading Metabolism in Architecture by Kisho Kurokawa. Oh, and my 5 favourite English books are probably, as of now, * East of Eden - John Steinbeck * Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut * Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson * Vanity Fair - William Makepeace Thackeray * The Grapes of Wrath - John S...

Re: John David Washington leads the cast

I thought this would sorta be cool to revisit, JDW (very briefly) mentioned Nolan back in 2018. He said he wanted to work with him: After a string of indies, would you want to do a studio blockbuster? If the studios will have me! For me, it's really about filmmak­ers. Christopher Nolan is one of the...

Re: Untitled Black Panther Sequel (2022)

The only Marvel film I'm excited for. I don’t really care for any others. I'm probably the only person left that still hasn’t seen the last two Avengers films, lol.

Re: Netflix's Mindhunter

Manson and the Son of Sam interviews were pretty eerie but kinda riveting. The Atlanta murders was executed pretty well, very horrid and heart wrenching. I was kinda annoyed how Dr Carr was the only one relegated by a romance arc — Holden and Bill had big personal drama but also worked on cases. She...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Would you further expound upon how they portrayed the Middle East or Arabic world in a stereotypical, inaccurate manner? I haven't seen the original Aladdin in over a decade or this most recent rendition of it. What are some of the things that are problematic? Barely any major spoilers but regardle...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Sorry to Bother You Boots Riley is one of my favourite artists just because he is quite explicitly a hard leftist and he made his music about that. I found out last year out of nowhere that the man is releasing a film and I thought that sounds really odd but so fucking cool. The first Coup song I e...

I’ve seen it three times already. My daughter is in love with the series, lol.

Never thought it was possible for Pixar to continue the golden streak. Such a great film. Forky was such a great addition, dude was making me laugh hella hard.

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

None of the debate moderators pressed the candidates on their foreign policy. I don’t think foreign policy should be taken lightly when people all over the world are impacted by US wars, US-led harsh economic sanctions, drone strikes, the US weapon industry and proxy battles. I’ll never understand h...
