I watched it. You do good work. Somehow I missed that my usual found footage critic watched this and recommended it. Weird story. I kept thinking it'd go a certain way and then it didn't and then it did but the other did didn't. If you know what I mean.

Can't beleive I have never seen this. :what: ....remastered comes across well and incredible cast. Yet I saw all The Man with No Name as they came out starting 1966 which was two years earlier. :scratch:
I guess focused on Uni that year and the cheap passes from the film course deal let me see any movie for $2

Damn , Henry Fonda, Jason Robarts, Bronson, Keenan Wynne, Claudia Cardinale and all of Sergio Leones techniques with eyes, music and building tension :coffee:

I was actually thinking it was How the West Was Won which yes I saw on release making me forever old. :waah:

Bit too much scmaltz but hey I see why it's in movie technique courses. Prefer Clint's trilogy tho. :coffee:

Margin Call pretty sure I've seen it but terrrific cast and I understand more now. :popcorn:

Demi Moore a bit light weight. I find it amusing they use the musical chair analogy. Pacing is terrific :thumbup: :coffee:

I tried watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and didn't make it past maybe 10 or 15 minutes. I hated DiCaprio's accent for some reason. Couldn't stand it. Intentional? I don't know, but I switched off. Hollywood actors playing caricatures of Hollywood actors. Was that the boring part? I'm not sure.

Terminator: Dark Fate was, surprisingly, half decent. Great action scenes and commendable computer graphics. I wasn't at all offended by any of the supposed feminism and politically-correct propaganda. Can I say, Mackenzie Davis as Grace was really good? The whole situation with Arnie and his life decisions as a Terminator were weird and funny, but eh, entertaining, I guess. Not so bad. Not so bad.

Quite well scripted and whilst I fell asleep towards the conclusion was watcheable.

Just re-watching Dead Calm and thinking how fortunate it is that the death count of men might might resolve the demographic imbalance brought about by Chinas one child policy. Just can't swallow it though. Too audacious.

Joker (2019): Ees okay

#23877  Postby arugula2 » Mar 07, 2020 7:11 pm

Image Joker (2019)

Two drawbacks: the supporting cast was entirely forgettable and the dialogue is only sometimes interesting. So it threatened being overindulgent or overdependent on the main guy. Phoenix is pretty great, the performance on its own, but also for saving the movie from its deficiencies. His Joker seemed complex enough to stave off the feeling of self-absorbed writing, which is probably hard to do when the whole point of the character is that he's caught in a loop of self-absorption with no way out. Soundtrack is delicious, and usually it worked, sometimes didn't, with what was on screen. I'd want to revisit the longer takes with Phoenix, and ignore the bulk of the movie. I wish it were a better movie, because I suspect he nailed this character in a way probably no one else could.

I watched Reservoir Dogs yesterday and it was fine. It was OK. If I'm going to be completely honest, I can see why certain people find it to be pretentious, indulgent, and overrated in that very Tarantino way. I think the acting is what makes it work. Other than that, the dialogue and story are pretty flat, in my opinion. I can appreciate its simplicity, though. It's barebones in a way that modern films cannot hope to be (not if they want to make their money back). The soundtrack was interesting in the way that Tarantino soundtracks are interesting.

I found this more to be theatre than cinema. Perhaps that's what Tarantino was going for. Heck, I'd even watch this as a musical.

Dealt (2017): Yesh!

#23879  Postby arugula2 » Mar 08, 2020 3:27 am

Image Dealt (2017)

Haunting documentary, not because it's about a consumate card mechanic, Richard Turner, who's blind and would rather that not be part of his act, although that's astounding too. Like any great doc, it reveals layers of its subject, and they're well worth revealing. But it also presents us his beautiful, ordinary acquaintances; and when you have multiple enigmatic characters in the same space, just being themselves, there's a quiet magic. I finished the movie not quite feeling as though I knew these people, but deeply wishing I'd had the chance to. There's also a juxtaposition between Richard's painful insularity - which is without a doubt genuine - and the voyeuristic act of exposing his life to the camera. That insularity is the quiet center of the doc, but it's never underlined, and that's what haunted me. It lingered as a barely acknowledged theme until the end, when I was finally aware of its importance. It's like Richard only let me know what he was really about when he was saying goodbye.

Noah in his element, namely the South African context. I only ever found him funny when he's tapping into his personal experience, or at least talking about what he feels like talking about. Also, his life's pretty interesting, and this is a documentary about his life.
