I went to see Black Widow over the weekend. My first time in a theater since January 2020 (when I saw Ford vs. Ferrari).

This movie should have been released as a sequel to Civil War. But now, considering the end to End Game, I don't see the point of this movie existing at all.

Ma (2019): skippable

The usual bad horror tropes. Decent cast, dumb script, everything else is forgettable.

Saw Midsommar. Thought I wouldn't like it because I wasn't the biggest fan of Hereditary. Instead loved it.

Watched There Will Be Blood the other night. Don't know why I hadn't seen it already. The first time Daniel Plainview is in church looking around at the whole farce of it all clearly thinking this is bullshit is so relatable.

i loved midsommar, though i also loved hereditary - midsommar is the better film, though, really tickles my love of folk horror

looking forward to his new one

The lead character of Midsommar plays Black Widow's "sister"

The lead character or the lead actress? Kinda messed up if it's the lead character. :shock:

Midsommar is more uneven, but it's got its visual moments, like toward the end, a small gesture when propping up what's left of Mark's body in the fire temple... still haunts me almost two years later.

Quiet Place 2 (2020): skipable

Cast is good. Monsters are ok. Script sucks... inexplicable life choices and lazy tropes, even a Chekhov's gun. Pacing issues. Sunday afternoon popcorn flick, otherwise nah.

Also watched The Suicide Squad. Somehow utterly boring.

wallowing in Austialiana ...reading the Silver Brumby series ...12 books and watching this which wears quite well as melodramatic as it is. Some very good horse riding and photography. Was in the Snowy RIver area earlier in the year so nice to see more of it on screen

Sequel teed up. Just incredible horsemanship. Brian Dennehy not a bad rider either

Pretty sure partly set in Bungle Bungles. Enjoyed it.

Hunter Hunter (2020): wtf was this

#24579  Postby arugula2 » Aug 29, 2021 5:51 am

Image Hunter Hunter (2020)

(Hulu) I had lingering questions after a certain scene with corpses. The disjointedness of it is to the movie's credit... it fooled me, but in retrospect it wasn't telling me the story I thought it was. Unless I'm forgetting some details, the script is quite honest.* Low-budget; the Canadian wilderness compensates (a family of fur trappers is contemplating the harshness of their lifestyle, when a wolf shows up). It works because the story is internally cohesive, the dialogue is... perfect(?), and scenes are expertly stitched together. Good cast. Shudderful ending.

(* It's a slight stretch, but Anne convinced those leg wounds are from a wolf follows from her earlier encounter & fixation with said wolf & the psychological fallout.)

^Actually, it still makes me think. It’s lingering, which is my favorite quality in a movie. Mind you, there’s nothing extraordinary story-wise - I just dig how it was put together, and how unostentatious it is. I’d like to think it’s a small-time director with bigger projects ahead of them... but I’m too lazy to look into it.
