BlacKkKlansman (2018)






Not quite the Soderbergh movie the trailer presented.












Eye in the sky (2015)



Disappointing claustrophobic thriller that was probably trying to make "BIG POLITICS" about the uses of UAVs in any war. The technical side interested me more than the people sadly. Great cast but not a very strong film. 4/10.

Man on Fire (2004)

I personally enjoyed the emotional load that Denzel Washigton and Dakota Fanning managed to transpose in this film. A tormented man who believed that no one could or should love him fond redemption in a small girl.


I use to adore this film. A recent re-watch made me change my mind a bit. The distorted, shaky, blur cuts were part of what I use to love, now it is probably what I dislike the most.

Regardless of any of that, Denzel is still a badass. The Equalizer pales in comparison to this.



Shell (2012)





Grim story about a Dad and girl (well, 17) living and working in a remote Petrol Station in the Scottish Highlands (unspecified). There seems to be a sexual undercurrent between them both but mostly it seems he's a sad man who has nurtured Shell and home-taught her and knows he cant keep her forever. It seems she is the only person who knows about his epilepsy and theres the rub. Great performances from Joseph Mawle and Chloe Pirrrie. 7/10.



That was the first time I watched Denzel Washington in a full film and I was really impressed. Maybe I wouldn't have been as enthused about The Equalizer had I not seen Man on Fire. To date they're the only films of his I've seen .
Training Day for propa Denzel bad-assness!



Young Mr. Lincoln (1939)

+


John Ford and Henry Fonda together will make me really look forward to a movie. Ford always creates a beautiful aura and Fonda is a soothing actor to watch. That was the case here but overall I thought it was pretty average.







But urgh, Margot Robbie's CGI head stuck on the body during the ice skating sequences was really weird and distracting...

Yikes:



(for some reason the video of this sequence isn't working/allowed by the video owner..., just search - I, Tonya - Sleeping Bag Skating Scene - if interested in seeing it.)



All About Steve >> 6/10 (funny s**t)

The manchurian candidate is another top performance of his imo.

Edit: just had a quick look at his imdb page other great performancess: bone collector, Philadelphia...havenít seen Malcomís x but itís no my list.



The sheltering sky (Bernardo Bertolucci, 1990) -



Well, it was not a lot of fun, but I'm sort of glad to have started with this long-postponed director. This is an existential drama about routine and relationship dynamics quite badly disguised as an adventure, and while the concept is interesting and the movie appears to know at least superficially what it tries to reach, I think it doesn't fully understand, or show to understand, the mechanisms to reach it. The structure is arbitrary and disperse, it seems that the movie just wanders throughout, and way too often the reflection is not clearly aligned to the narration or the emotion of the moment. Still, it has beautiful scenery and a cinematography that at the very least looks unconventional, and there are some very intense sections in the movie, which with its flaws and the lack of a single effective and cohesive view, is interesting and engaging due to the themes it suggests and the somewhat unique flavor the movie has.



Maverick. Mel Gibson is a fast talking card-sharp trying to get enough cash together to enter a high stakes poker game, but someone seems determined to keep him out. Jodie Foster and James Garner co-star in this entertaining mid 90s tongue in cheek Western that doesn't reinvent the wheel, but is amusing and likeable throughout. There's a great cameo from Danny Glover as a bank robber who seems to - almost - recognise Gibson, to the strains of the Lethal Weapon music. "I'm getting too old for this s**t!"



Slow West
(2015)
3.5/5




Decent western but I have seen better come out within the past 5 years.





Beetlejuice (1988) - 81/100

It loses its steam towards the end, but for the most part, it's a fun and original movie. I especially like the stopmotion special effects, partly because I like Burton's art style, partly because I like stopmotion in and of itself.

Favourite line: I've seen the Exorcist 167 times! And it keeps getting funnier every single time I see it!

Yeah, I felt that had dated a lot when I saw some of it again recently.

Dude We have an Atlanta thread, best show. And yes Teddy Perkins is incredible and Darius is the best character. Love how in the next episode he calms down the girl having a panic attack, that's when i realized he was my favourite.

Yeah, at the Drake party, that was another good episode. Have to say, I could watch Van all day long!!
