The trick is not minding
Oh yeah, I was watching Pinocchio. I forgot. I guess that counts for this thread because its been days and I'm probably not going back to it.
Del Toroís Pinocchio? Or the also recent Garrone? Or do you mean, by some odd chance mean Benigni?

I presume del Toro, but I could be wrong.

del Toro.


I know people like him, and maybe I do to a tiny bit....but he's such a bore.

I havenít seen his early films before Blade 2, yet, nor his last two films (Nightmare Alley, Pinocchio) but Iíd have to agree with you, outside of Panís Labyrinth, I havenít ďlovedĒ his other films. I will say he has a nice visual style, often.

I hope to watch Cronos and The Devilís Backbone at some point this year.

They're all good movies. He makes good movies (except Shape of Water). But I am always only just barely interested.





Very stressful weekend. So not in the mood for this yesterday.

I watched this about a year or so ago.
I remember seeing commercials for it when it first came out and thinking it was some kind of head-trip or sci-fi movie! (mostly because they featured dream sequences in the commercials).

But I never saw it until recently.

It's probably dated by today's standards, but since it featured a contemporary (I was around the same age as MJ Fox) parts of it were interesting. Plus it had Phoebe Cates (but as a kind of unlikable character)!
There are some good performances and some good and bad casting, but the story is unfocused and I never really bought Michael J Fox playing the bad boy.





So mad at the Times & The New Yorker. They both creamed themselves about this movie - a masterpiece, wonderful, blah, blah, blah. Itís none of these things!



Cheapskate Sean Penn involved in a 2021 movie that has no subtitles. Who does that these days! It got terrible reviews (though his daughter was kindly looked upon) so I didnít miss anything.





Huge effort went into this, but just not my cuppa tea. Even Brad Pitt couldnít make me finish it.



Ana de Armas is very good as Marilyn Monroe, but I canít watch this for 3 hours. Probably improved when Bobby Cannavale appears as Joe DiMaggio, but I couldnít wait that long.




Huge fan of everyone involved here from the director to the actors, but couldnít make heads or tails of it.

Has anyone else seen this movie?






Got halfway through & lost the plot. I really liked the first Knives Out movie, but this one was very different. Great cast, but I got mighty confused with what was going on.

That might mean I'd like it as I really disliked the first Knives Out movie.





Seriously, I couldn't get to the 40min mark. I don't know what I was expecting really, I hated the first one.

The Force is Favreau


Two strong leads & a good director, but this movie is a hot mess.

In the context of the poster image, this makes it sound... ...intriguing.
