Game Night - HBO. I had been waiting to see this and it was worth the wait.

Malevolent - Netflix. Usually not a horror fan but this was a good film and I agree with lots of other reviewers that Florence Pugh deserves all the stardom coming to her as she is phenomenal.

Under the Skin (2013)

VERY slow and contemplative intellectual sci-fi film set in Scotland. A space-vamp (sex-oozing Johansen) picks-up lone men to bring back to her base of operation in order to 'melt' them for use by her breathren. But in the process she becomes more and more humanized.
Second time seeing this. Love the pace and the very very very subtle script where almost nothing is explained. The visuals (pool of black space goo, Scotland, Scarlet naked) are also mind-blowing. I do realize that its a film that will please a very small public - of which I am - and that most will find it long and boring.

Johnny Handsome (1989)

So-so thriller by Walter Hill about an Elephant-man-like disfigured hoodlum (Rourke) who goes to jail and gets a major face lift and a second chance. But its hard to take the jungle out of the tiger. Especially with cynical cop (Morgan Freeman) on his tail waiting for Johnny to stumble...

Highlander (1986)

An old favorite that I like rewatching every few years. This time convinced my girlfriend to give it a go. She agreed that with all its fault it is still a scifi/fantasy classic. No matter all the cheese and pompous (and sometimes awful) music, the cliches and the bad acting by Lambert, its still a very pleasing and well constructed story. And I just learned that the script was a school-project from a film-student who sold it for 200000$!

I just wish they would release the film with all the extra cut scenes instead of repeatedly releasing a shorter montage. Director cut or not.

Other than the nudity I couldn't sit through this. I know I'm shallow but I need more happening to keep my interest.

It doesn't mean you're shallow. We all have different tastes and things that make us vibrate. Some people can't feel the thrill of sitting on a rock and watch the sun setting for ten minutes. They'd rather go around thrwowing sticks in the forest or fooling around or talking non-stop. I don't think one is better than the other. Just different personalities and different tastes.

It was slow and not a lot of dialogue.




Not really missing anything if you have not seen it

I watched Out Cold tonight. It's good, stupid fun with a good late 90's early 2000's soundtrack. 2.75/5

Snowpiercer (2013)
Can't say the plot is wonderful, but setting is quite unusual for anti utopia. Also I loved the cast.

Unfriended (2014) — Had a couple hilariously bad funny moments but otherwise just a waste of time. *clicks unfriend* 1.5/5

Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) — Dumb but not as dumb as the first, though I do have a prejudice against paranormal movies (with few exceptions like The Exorcist or the original Amityville Horror) and found footage-like films. Some decent twists so it's watchable. 2.75/5

I watched two good movies today.


I watched Measure of a Man this morning and I really enjoyed it. It's a coming of age story about an overweight boy in the 70's. 4/5



I also watched A Star is Born this afternoon and I loved it. I'm going to have to be really, really, really impressed by another movie to remove this as my front-runner for all the major Academy Awards. 5/5

22 July. The movie that was just released on Netflix, about the Norwegian Massacre that happened several years ago. Written and Directed by Paul Greengrass (based on a really, really great non-fiction book). As others have said, Greengrass uses a minimal use of his usual shaky-cam technique, which I was grately for, as I find that really annoying. Difficult film to watch at times, but it's generally tastefully done. Minor spoiler...

Spoiler:
As others have said, the bulk of the film really focuses on the aftermath of the attack, whether it be the survivors and their recoveries or the actual trial.


The actor playing the killer did a very good job (I don't really recognize him from any other movies or television shows). The actor that played his lawyer was also really good, as he was great at playing such a conflicted character.

The movie might be a little bit long, but overall it was worth watching. And if you like the movie, I'd highly recommend reading the book it was based on (it's obviously able to delve into much greater detail, and makes for a very harrowing read).

I watched Eighth Grade today. It's a really well made film that gives an raw and unflinching look at adolescence today. 4/5

Miles Teller back in 2010 before he became a star





It was better than what I expected and that is saying a lot coming from a Bruckheimer production.

The Favourite (2018)

Fantastic performances from Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz & Emma Stone.

Probably Yorgos Lanthimos' most accessible film, which isn't a surprise considering he didn't write the script.

Last Shift (2014)

A bit predictable but the Assault On Precinct 13( by way of the Paranormal) approach is very enjoyable.

Fantastic imagery and solid scares.

We Go On (2016)

The film's base concepts are continually fascinating, even if it doesn't stay as eerie as its initial scare.

Ash Is Purest White (2018)

Fantastic performance by Zhao Tao.

Though I appreciate the commentary on the rapidly changing environment in China, the film plays at its strongest when it isn't meandering, focusing on loyalty to love and the Jianghu Underworld.

The Comancheros (1961)

Later day John Wayne film directed by Michael - Casablanca - Curtiz. The usual western for aging Duke where he plays an aging cowboy guiding a younger one in life. Here, as he's bringing back a wanted criminal, he strikes a friendship with the sympathetical lad (who's not really a criminal of course!) who helps him defeat a bunch of thieves. They both fall in love in the process...
Watchable and some amusing scenes but we're far from JOhn Ford and Wayne at their prime.

Marlene May Marcy Martha (2012)

Nice slow psychological drama about a young woman who runs away from a commune she lived in and where she was under the influence of a dominating leader. She ends up at her sister's summer house and tries to 'deprogram' herself from the pernicious teachings of the guru. Well acted by Olsen.

I Love You Alice B Toklas (1968)

Typical and not very funny Paul Mazursky-written film of social clash between 'squares' and the new hippies in L.A. Peter Sellers plays a jewish lawyer about to get married who while going to meet his hippy brother on the beach in LA falls in love with 'groovy' chick. He decides to turn his life around and become 'free'. His castrating mother and ex-bride-to-be all try to bring him back into 'proper' society.
Very dated, like overrated 'The Party' with same Sellers.

The Big Short (2016)

Superb and quirkily funny film about (and explaining in layman's terms) the 2008 economical crisis. Based on a book retracing the Mortgage bubble and blatant corruption of Wall street and al.
Very informative and extremely depressing! Seeing all the stupidity, greed and crookedness of most of the institutions (and people) that make the self-righteous capitalism supposedly work and how in the end it's always the taxpayers that get screwed is rather shocking. Not that I didn't know it.
But worst is seeing how these institutions all got away with it and are back doing the same old same old with NO social nor enviromental vision for years to come.
Still, great film, should be required viewing to all Americans and all others who think that economic system is the way to go!
