Re: Putting your Pet down.

Yup. We're suckers for the heartbreak they bring to us when they leave us. Just have to remind ourselves of the many days of joy that they gave us while they were with us.

Sorry for your loss....

Re: Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019, D: Michael Dougherty) -- The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I'll add my vote to the vocal minority or vocal majority--whichever group thought this movie sucked.

I thought the 2014 Godzilla film was quite enjoyable and something I like rewatching...

He game a terrific performance in The Limey (as did Terrance Stamp.) Criterion needs to step up and get this released on Blu ray.

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Tarantino, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

The movie is a work of fiction, Kareem. It is not a documentary about Bruce Lee.

The scene in question is the aging stunt man's recollection of the events that occurred when he met/fought Bruce...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Tarantino, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I'm a big fan of character-driven films (and also love Neo-realistic films) so I was quite happy with OUATIH. I did think that this film had a very clear trajectory for the two main characters, but,...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Tarantino, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

To certain extent they were back in the 50s and the 60s. An entire season of a Western such as "Wanted: Dead or Alive" was thirty-six episodes. That's a lot of regurgitation and padding that's going...

Re: Miley Cyrus: Attention seeking slut? (Update: Now again NSFW)

I would respect her privacy if, indeed, she wanted privacy, but I don't think she does. Or as the title of this thread questions: "Miley Cyrus: Attention seeking slut?" My unequivocal answer is: YES!

Yes.

Hate to add to this thread, but another mass shooting. And less than 24 hours than the previous one.

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Tarantino, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I agree with this as well. Brad Pitt has the flasher role, but Leo DiCaprio's role and his outstanding portrayal of this character anchors the movie. A great acting job of being effective by not...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Tarantino, 2019) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Re: Cats (2019, D: Tom Hooper) S: Swift, McKellen, Corden, Hudson

Unfortunately, some of us have been tortured by the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Webber over the years.

Well, at least, Cats isn't Starlight Express. Wait a minute. Is that good thing or a bad thing?

Re: It's 2019: Have you seen Casablanca (1942)?

Re: It's 2019: Have you seen Casablanca (1942)?

You're missing out of some really great films from the 30s and 40s if you come into them with the mindset that most of them are overly romantic or are heavy with nostalgia.
