I already went once, but my life has floundered directionless for so long, maybe I do need to go back. I've made such a mess sitting on my ass like millennials do. God, I have to figure something out.

Sorry. In a long overdue contemplative mood.

Obviously you love to watch movies and talk about them hence your detailed reviews. If that's a line of work that interests you, then you should seriously make an effort to get there. Like going back to school and studying TV/Film and getting a good internship (and possibly getting the hell out of Michigan) Stop wasting your time feeling sorry for yourself. Pushing shopping carts and working in retail isn't going to get you to where you really want to be.

Re: Last movie you watched

Little Deaths - 3/5

British horror anthology of 3 twisted stories in which the interconnecting themes are sex and death. Pretty good acting and filmmaking technique for a low budget film. The first story which is more horror is IMO is the best while the others were ok. The second has more elements of sci-fi and the third is more psychological. Worth watching but it does have some moments that can be disturbing.

Yeah, I've just wasted so much time, I'm not sure where to pick up the pieces and go from here. Getting the hell out of here would probably be a good start. I should really find a therapist of some kind. Have to figure something out.

Anyway....

The Five Man Army- Middling Magnificent Seven knockoff Spaghetti Western from TV-bred director Don Taylor. There's a whole nearly wordless set piece which goes on for quite some time which might've been incredible in the hands of someone like Leone, but as it is, the film feel competent but unspectacular. The politics feel pretty half-hearted, and it doesn't get a lot of mileage out of the premise or the characters, including a silent samurai who's in the old west for God-knows what reason. Serviceable, but even as a cheap exploitation movie, could've been more fun.

Twilight's Last Gleaming - 4.5/5

Edge of your seat thriller from Robert Aldrich about a former Air Force general who returns from Vietnam and tries to expose his government's dirty laundry. In order to silence him he is framed for a crime and sent to prison for life. He escapes from prison with three others and takes over a missile silo. If the government refuses to reveal secret files to the public about Vietnam he will launch the missiles to their intended targets. Angry 70's political thriller (they don't make them like this any more) with tight direction and marvelous use of split screen.

Just watched Before Sunrise for the first time. Liked it, but the improvised dialogue was awkward at times. Will start Before Sunset tomorrow.

Guardians of the Galaxy, which, for me, exceeded the hype.

Sunshine A fantastic sci-fi movie starring Chris Evans and Cillian Murphy. Kind of goes of the rails in the last act but was enjoyable enough up to that point.

Sarandon, not so much. Not a big fan of that boyish hair. Deneuve, I'd fuck her still, and even change her diaper after.

Along with True Romance I consider it Tony Scott's best film.

Yeah, I was very impressed with it. The Bauhaus didn't hurt either.

Re: Last movie you watched



This movie is so close to being perfect, but there are a couple of annoying problems that could have so easily been fixed. First, sped-up footage is never a good idea. There are only about 30 seconds of it here, but that's 30 seconds too much. It jumps out and distracts with its awfulness. Second, there's some amazingly bad editing in the climactic chase scene; at one point Max's tanker truck veers off the road and there's a jump cut to it cruising right along on the highway.

Other than that, it's golden. It's pretty slow going up until the third act, but once it hits, it's fucking relentless. The actors are perfect, the writing is perfect, the direction is perfect. It's just the editor who needed a smack.

Hanger (2009)

Has all the gore & tastelessness we come to expect from Ryan Nicholson. The pacing though is absolutely grueling and this would have benefited greatly by being a short film.

Torched (2004)

Nutty way to spend 45 minutes. Has some of Ryan Nicholson's best gore gags to date, which is funny seeing as it was his first film.

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)

1st & final acts were hilarious. Everything else in-between? Not so much. I'm surprised at how many random 'celebrities' they got to pop in this film.
