Re: Knives Out (2019)

What a film :clap: An incredibly clever, funny and thematically rich script. I think this may be Rian's best one and am so absolutely delighted that this almost-impossible-to-hate film comes to the TLJ haters out there. Ana Armas just stole the film. This is completely her film. Craig was great, but...

Re: The Irishman (2019)

I just finished it and I absolutely agree The first 45 minutes is... kinda generic Scorsese-gangster stuff? I really wasn't that impressed. And the de-aging for De Niro is a bit spotty at the beginning. Maybe I just got used to it after. Anything pre-Hoffa was just not as good as the rest But it jus...

Re: HBO's Watchmen

Yeah, I thought Ep. 1-4 were too much based on mystery-box narrative, 5 & 6 were absolutely extraordinary television. Especially last night.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Gangs of New York A glorious mess. An amazing first fifteen minutes An all-timer performance from DDL Exquisite world-building and sets A solid performance by Leo despite the relative blandness of the writing Yet the film's pacing is strangely uninvolving, especially with the Diaz subplot being abs...

Re: HBO's Watchmen

Yeah I think it's my main problem with the show so far, it's extremely plot-driven.

The Westworld comparison is really spot-on. It really isn't a character-driven show like The Leftovers.

Which really puts a lot of pressure on its conclusion

Re: Untitled Star Wars Trilogy (Rian Johnson)

https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/star-wars-hiatus-bob-iger Indeed, after The Rise of Skywalker opens in December, Star Wars films will be taking a bit of a break from the big screen, per Disney CEO Bob Iger. In an earnings call with investors today (via CNET), he said the films will go "into a hiatus,...

Re: HBO's Watchmen

This is so weird and fascinating.

I really need to see the whole thing before giving it some rating as this is such a giant puzzle that it's hard to really call it great (for me anyway)

Re: Jojo Rabbit (2019)

Really good, a pure candy juggling with different tones. Great acting, especially from Scarlett, Thomasin and Roman Griffith Yet, this was much more mainstream than I was expecting. It’s a film I could show to my grandmother and my 10-year old sister. And Taika was miscast as Hitler, which was anywa...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Sunshine I've never experienced a quicker 180 on a film than this one. I knew nothing about it beforehand and realize now that it's not that controversial, but holy shit that third act twist/tonal shift is horrible I was completely in love with the film until then. And I'm really a big fan of Garla...
