Rate The Last Movie You Saw

Midsommar (2019)

Saw this in theaters and gave it a 3, but I kept thinking about certain pieces and wanting to see this again. It's a shocking movie that I love telling people about, and it's just as eerie and tense the second time. Upping the rating




Oren Moverman, 2014


Richard Gere, New York city homeless for ten years with dementia looking for someone. Beautifully filmed this movie, stationary camera, behind city objects, like if only the city were watching a homeless and no one else, gives you the impression of New York city like most movies don't, and it's hard to film NY, the city became a cliche, it's immensely photogenic. The author respected the time, this means the movie is slow. There is not evident plot, everything appears as we go, the point is to show events, or the lack of them, that is the life of a homeless. A very indie kind of film, the character is not romanticized in any way, nothing is romanticized, a very noncommercial movie, maybe that's why they had so many delays and setbacks, having Richard Gere in such a film I believe would not be easy. Anyway, this was considered a failure by the critics, I believe this is one of those movie I'd like to see more often, where the directors do what they want, not what we want them to do, I like that, that's why I re-watched it last night. Only one person recognized Richard Gere while he was begging for money, that's New York, and I wouldn't change it, that's it's beauty and I believe Oren's made a great job showing some of that.






After hearing a little about Uncut Gems I decided to look up the directors previous films. This was available to stream so I checked it out and it's pretty solid. First time seeing Robert Pattinson in anything and he was really good.



❤️Dominic Sherwood+Katherine McNamara❤️
Alien Resurrection (1997) im huge fan of alien movie trilogy for long time and i saw this movie long time ago and saw it again tonight so i gave it 10/10

Man, this film is all over the place. If youíve ever seen a Bunuel film, youíll understand what I mean.
Still, the dream within dreams and constant spectre of death Permeates this film. Itís actually really good. Wonít go into it much as itís without a doubt one of those films you must see for yourself!

4 *ís
Itís a classic of cinema.

The Adventures of Captain Fabien - A fairly good drama starring Errol Flynn and the ever watchable Vincent Price.

Halfway House - An enjoyable enough ghost drama starring Mervyn Johns.



The trick is not minding

Itís amazing the more I think back to it.



The Godfather (1972)

After failing to finish The Irishman I had to ensure that a long mob epic can still be good. It's not perfect (I kinda dislike both Brando and Pacino here; too much time is spent at weddings, funerals, and baptisms; Sonny beating his brother-in-law is almost as bad as de Niro beating the shopkeeper) but surely one of the best mafia films.

Noi Albinoi left me basking in the impact of it's final scene long after the movie credits ran out. It gave me similar vibes to Lilya 4-ever and Show Me Love. I loved it.





Martin Scorsese, 2019


A beautiful box with nothing inside. Only a handful of authors would be able to make such a movie, the cinematography, the screenplay, the story telling, the details, everything is stop on, that's why I'm not rating it lower, but then what? I'm not a Scorcese Goodfellas, Casino or The Departed, I'm a Scorcese Taxi Driver, New York Stories, or even Silence which I didn't like the point he was trying to make, but I appreciate the courage. One of the actors whose career I have the at most respect, Harvey Keitel was placed there just to be shown in the posters. And what the f*ck did they do to De Niro's face? Jesus Almighty. Anyway, this is purely a commercial movie, a very well made one, but I'm always hoping for something different, with content, I don't think this one had, one thing he definitively had, a lot of political speculation.

Stalker (1979)

For the most part, it's beautiful to look at but I don't find its attempt at the philosophy that interesting. It's almost like the story (the journey and sparse discussions) is just an excuse to put the images on film. The audio was terrible and (perhaps partly because of that) the acting wasn't too good either. Guess I'll have to be an iconoclast again.

Especial de Natal: Se Beber, N„o Ceie (2018)

A Brazilian short film about The Last Supper. Delightfully distasteful parody of Christ and his apostles. There are few weak jokes in its 40 minutes but for the most part, it's laugh-out-loud good. Best comedy I've seen in a long time.

Holy ****! hehehe
Eu discordo fundamentalmente de ambos. Detesto Porta dos Fundos e tudo que vem deles; amo tudo que existe sobre Tarkovsky, Stalker ť O meu filme favorito.

The Godfather: Part II (1974)

Continuing the Corleone saga. It's pretty equal to the first film (half of the film I'm thinking it's slightly worse but the other is the opposite). Lead actors are better on this (Pacino gets better as Michael becomes viler and de Niro is an upgrade from Brando). Coppola could have held back with the festivities again as half of the film seems to take place at some party. Maybe it could have been edited down to three hours even though it went moderately quickly as it is.
