Re: Last Movie you watched, and what you thought about it?

I watched green street the other night for the first time in years. Forgot what a great film it was.

Re: Last Movie you watched, and what you thought about it?

The last film I watched "The Salesman". It was very good. If you like "A Separation", or perhaps "Caché" ("Hidden") by Michael Haneke, you need to see this one.

CBA with critical analysis. Been watching a lot of 1960s British films lately. There are some good ones: Ken Russell, Ken Loach. A few Kens. Looking into seeing some more folk horror films over the next few weeks — very keen to watch "Fenda's Pen". My gal is a big fan of Alan Clarke, and I know very little about him (once saw Made in Britain), so this could be a good meeting point for the two of us — completely new territory for both, but from completely different contexts! A good levelling field, anyway, after we recently watched "Song of Summer" by Ken Russell together — she'd seen none of his films before, whereas I'm quite well acquainted with his films by now (by no means an expert, but enough to realise how different that one is from most of his films).

7.5 to IT is too harsh, I'd give around 8.5, despite the fact 1st half of the movie being much better.

Dolores Claiborne.

New IT is coming September and this one will focus solo on the kids (1958).
Well apart from Tim Curry's superb performance I think the acting is quite mediocre, even TV movie standards.

I'll definitely watch the new IT!

The Fog (2005 remake) 5/10 - not as bad as I feared it was going to be, but I kept on wanting to laugh at inappropriate moments. Mixture of good and bad SPFX.

Dolores Claiborne (1995) - 9/10
IT (1990) - 7.5/10
David Brent: Life on the Road (2016) - 6/10

I'm spending way more time with TV series rather than film these days.

Lion (2016) - 8.5/10 - Biggest surprise among the Best Picture's nominations for me. One of those movies I wasn't expecting much, but ended up liking it. But...
 
why all that Google merchandise in the movie? I don't know the true story, but I guess it wasn't exactly like that. Also, I'm not an expert in India, but I believe there are a lot of cities or places starting with Ganesh, so spending a year analyzing routes and places and them all of a sudden discovering Ganestalay was actualy Ganesh Talai was kinda bizarre. I guess it it was that easy, an expert in indian things would give him the tip as soon as he mention the word "ganestalai".


Poison Ivy (1992) - 6.2/10 - Someone posted a clip in one of those BSG games with images of this movie. Young and hot Drew Barrymore caught my attention and I decided to give it a go. Not great, but decent crime movie. Since it only 90 min, worth it.

Rings (2017) - 4.8/10 - Not entirely bad, but quite unnecessary third movie of the saga. The first one is a classic.

I Went Down (1997)



7.5/10

So a dude in Ireland get's out of prison, and suffice to say in defending a friend with a gambling problem takes out the eye ofsome low level stooge who is the nephew of a local gangster's . So to "get square" with the Gangster boss he has to drive out of town and pick up the associate of this boss and bring him back to Dublin. He is accompanied by another gangster( ably played by Brendan Gleeson). On paper this sounds a lot more interesting then it ends up being, as it tries being a road trip comedy and a charecter driven gangster film and doesn't fully excel at both. That said the dialogue and performances are enough to overcome the films flaws,and I enjoyed it more then most of the Gangster Comedies from UK/Ireland like Lock Stock.. that came in the decade or so after this.

Moonlight - 6.6/10 - How this won the Oscar for Best Picture? Seriously, not bad, but not great either, average to good movie. Actually the 2 liner resume in IMDB is perfect: "A chronicle of the childhood, adolescence and burgeoning adulthood of a young, African-American, gay man growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami"; since I felt like I was watching some reboot of Boyhood.

Manchester by the Sea - 6.7/10 - Another pretty average to good movie. Kinda boring in some parts, sad in others. Why Michelle Williams got a nomination for this? I understand it was for supporting role, but I wouldn't even call the role she played as supporting, she appears like 3 times (and like 5 minutes combined) in a movie of 147 minutes.

Nocturnal Animals - 8.0/10 - Best movie I watched this week, I thought I would like it, since I pretty much like every Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. Kinda cruel ending to Susan though.

Lights Out (2016) - 7.5/10 - Thanks @TheBigFourFTW . I don't think it was better than Hush and Don't Breathe, but still a very good horror movie. Diana scared the hell out of me. Btw, that actress who played Rebecca's role is Mark Webber's wife, no?

Fences (2016) - 6.0/10 - Despite Denzel's acting being superb as usual, I found this movie very average. So far, the worst of the 4 best picture nominations I watched.

The Discovery (2017) - IMDb 6,3/10
Split (2016) - IMDb 7,4/10
Mine (2016) - IMDb 6,1/10

I recommend all 3 of them. Great story in all 3 of them, I won't say much, so I don't spoil your watching.
