Joy (2015)

I happened to turn this on while browsing channels, and it immediately drew me in. Not sure how I completely forgot about this movie coming out a few years ago given the cast of Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, and Bradley Cooper, but it was a well-rounded film. Based on a true story and researching shows that it didn't fabricate or fictionalize too much. A little funny, a little depressing, a little charming and inspiring. Not outstanding but certainly worth a watch.



Patriots Day (2016) (Dir. Peter Berg)



Championing America's mythologized self-conception obscuring the imperialism that fuels these attacks, Patriots Day draws upon the same scapegoats George Bush peddled in his "Why do they hate us?" speech all those years ago: It's our freedom, our multiculturalism, our democracy!

The boat Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found hiding inside of had a message scrawled inside outlining his motive for the crime: US wars in the middle east and the slaughter of the innocent as a result. Any movie purporting to interrogate terrorist acts that doesn't address the long history of US instigation is nothing but agitprop.

From Lone Survivor to Deepwater Horizon to Patriots Day, Peter Berg is Leni Riefenstahl for the American Empire, working exclusively to protect power. This is porno for boot lickers.



Whaaa.... WHAT THE?! Are you trying to take the title of King of Kinkiness from me? With these puny fetishes? Phew!

Batman Ninja

This is not the best animated Batman movie but it’s nice to see the anime style animation!

3/5



Scarface (1932)

+


It was entertaining and I'm sure I would have loved it if I saw it 85 years ago. I didn't think Paul Muni was great as Tony, but it was a fun performance. I sometimes found the movie humorous. The scene with his sister that the remake copied was a great one.



The world doesn't owe you a damn thing
Fear and Desire -


I think this Kubrick guy could really go some places.
nah, he's probably one of those one-hit-wonders that fades away, most likely





Short Circuit

It is interesting that you re-watched one of your favorite childhood movie and found out that the movie wasn't that great, though the movie still had a lot of magic in Number 5 in today's standard.

Things I didn't like:
- Poor dialogue
- Inconsistency
- Some lazy writing

One thing that totally amazed me was that Fisher Stevens acting like an Indian dude, and I absolutely got fooled, that Indian accent was so pure to me.

Final Rating:
This movie is better than The Last Jedi. Yup.

terrible, 0/5, not enough puppies.




The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966, Sergio Leone) (extended cut)


Incredible film, especially the first half, even though I think it drags a little during the "bridge" segment, and the score, while brilliant, tends to be a tad overused - and misused - at times imo (the final shootout is beautiful and epic but I think it would have been better without the bombastic music).
I still give it a perfect rating because it's so damn iconic in every other way.



You can't win an argument just by being right!
Terror. Doco on Boko Haram. Excruciatingly difficult for me to watch so I will give it a 5 out of 5 for being a really well made doco and will now try to erase the footage from my memory.





Cinderella (2015)

Enjoyed the frivolity of this only thing that irked was this use of contemporary songs, no songs were especially required 7/10.
