Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

I think this is the worst possible idea ever proposed for a Star Wars film, even more so than Rogue One, and that's saying something. The whole nostalgia train thing going on with these big budget films just ain't doing it for me.

Re: Rank the films of Quentin Tarantino

I've been working through QT's arsenal again as of recent, and am now convinced he's getting better with age. I also notice a pattern of 'trilogies', in that Reservoir Dogs through Jackie Brown are so similar in execution, as are Kill Bill and Death Proof , Inglorious through Hateful Eight . I guess...

He's the best director working today, and second to Kubrick imo.

Unnecessary sequel but will give benefit of the doubt.

Because he excels at it compared to say, TDKR.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

mother! Possibly one of the most ambitious and original movies I've ever seen. On a technical level, this is absolutely brilliant. Javier and Lawrence killed it, which is weird to say because I really do not like JLaw. Overall? Wow. What an experience. The only JLaw performance I can stand. For me ...

Re: Nolan's next film after Dunkirk

I believe, with the exception of The Dark Knight , Nolan's strengths are put to better use when the budget is tighter and the story is more confined. The Prestige, Memento , and Dunkirk are good examples of this. I'd like to see something like The Prestige , something period-piece. I don't think he'...

Re: All the Money in the World (2017)

Ridley's decision to reshoot and maintain a tight schedule is no nonsense, old-school filmmaking at its best. The real dark horse of the year, that's for sure. I'm likening this a lot to American Gangster in that it will surely be underrated and overlooked by the large majority of audiences, it'll l...
