Re: Joker (2019)

If you don't like a movie's politics fine, go ahead and make that clear in your review, though. You should still try to attempt to critic/judge the film on whether the plot and actions of the characters work within the world of the constructed film. You don't have to agree with it's message but tha...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

I second Touch Of Evil, and Maltese Falcon.

Also White Heat, which for me is the smartest police/criminal movie ever made.
Melville's The Red Circle, and Second Breath. And Anthony Mann's T-Men.

Re: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Why go through the trouble of making a satire only to turn around and sprinkle it with sentimentality and sanctimoniousness?

Re: Netflix's Mindhunter

You mean Brian? No no it's not at all contrived, rather the fallout from that incident feels very organic. It's only towards the end of the season it falls into a huge cliche territory which I mentioned in the spoiler tag of my last post. How can you view the fallout from Brian's situation as natur...

Re: What Was the Last Episode of TV You Watched

Getting through The Expanse is becoming a real slog; the most unexceptional show I've probably seen. One positive is that I'll get to see David Strathairn soon, and hope he will lively up the show. EDIT: I may have been a bit impatient; season 3 is kicking ass so far. And I have not yet even seen Da...

Re: HBO's Succession

Returns tonight, and apparently this season is masterful. Currently has 89 on metacritic.

Eh.

Does not hold a candle to Watchmen or even Super in that subgenre

I bailed in the middle of the second episode.

Re: Avengers: Endgame (2019)

Kind of late to this but I found Endgame a bit of a letdown compared to Infinity War (which I should confess really exceeded my expectations). I mean I don't know what the consensus is on the two of them.

Re: Trumpocalypse Now

It was nice watching Warren and Sanders combining to swat down the DINOs on stage today. Of course, as the field eventually narrows down, they'll be forced to differentiate themselves from each other, and their unofficial detente will break down - and you're damn right the media will make sure of it.
