CODA

Struggling to review this a little bit because it basically boils down to 'nice remake of nice film'. I feel like I'm damning it with faint praise - it's not that it isn't good, in fact I...

Parasite did very well in the Foreign Language movie countdown. Recency bias? Possibly. I feel like that will be less of an issue on the 2010s list, as everything you could possibly vote for is...

Watched this last night and it certainly had an impact. I think Yoda's point about expectations is spot on - I started watching having read the reviews and some of the outrage so wasn't expecting a...

Bros (2022)

When I saw this film it was prefaced with a little self-satisfied clip of Billy Eichner talking about how it is the first major studio gay romcom with an lgbtq+ cast... I think this...

Don't Worry Darling (2022)

Looks great and Florence Pugh is great and I have to admit I did spend a lot of time thinking about it afterwards. However, it is a lot of setup for a little payoff and...

Nightmare Alley

I saw the Guillermo del Toro version of this when it came out last year, and thought it was pretty good (with a couple of reservations about pace and characterisation).

I didn't like Shame that much when I first watched it, but I found myself thinking about it a lot afterwards and watching it again and appreciating it a lot more. Oddly, I had a similar experience...

Nights of Cabiria

I think the main reason I hadn't watched this before was that I had vaguely confused it with La Strada, which I have seen. Another reason might be that I never liked La Dolce...

I'm finding these 'best of' lists really interesting, although I can't say I agree with some of the films that keep popping up.

Here's a film that I don't think has been mentioned that much:

While watching this I was reminded quite a bit of How Green Was My Valley (for obvious reasons). But although the valleys are greener, I didn't enjoy it as much. The 1950s are not...

Re: Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame VI

The Shape of Water is a favourite of mine but I slightly wish it hadn't won the Oscar because it sets it up for a backlash and/or the weight of expectation.

I've only seen The Old Guard, but I really liked that so maybe I should check out some of the others.

Army of Shadows is brilliant. I would recommend Army of Shadows, Le Cercle Rouge and Le Samourai to everyone (although didn't specifically in this HoF!).

I don't think The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will be gbgoodies' cup of tea due to content but Spotlight, Moneyball, True Grit and Inside Out are all good shouts, I'd second those recs.
