Re: Guns Akimbo

I'm kind of looking forward this even though I didn't much care for the director's last movie and this looks like it has the potential to turn into the next Crank or Wanted at any second (and I don't...

Re: What do you think of the movie Parasite (2019)?

I'd say that, while it shifts tones and modes a whole lot, it's fundamentally a satire and therefore a comedy.

Re: 1917 (2019)

Not to mention how

there's a scene about halfway through where the main character is knocked out during the daytime, the film cuts to black and when he wakes up it's nighttime.

Re: An unnerving question but someone's gotta ask it.

Eh, classic films age badly all the time. I'm pretty sure there was a sub-section of critics/viewers who did consider it pretentious nonsense at the time, though it was more likely to be directed at...
