Rate The Last Movie You Saw

Tools    





Just watched News of the World. So simplistic in its story, and not in a good way. It's predictable and something that has probably been done before. It seems like it had a decent budget as well, so it's surprising how something so ordinary was allowed to be made, and how someone like Hanks agreed to it (maybe because he had worked with the director before).








Collectiv (2019) - 9/10. Saw this last month. Well all of my recent posts are of movies I have watched in the past two months. And I have to say, this is one of the best documentary I have seen. The level of fraud and the human impact was laid bare. I have to wholeheartedly say this is a recommended watch. The incident which sparked it all off seems trivial in the grand scheme of things, but the story is so much more! It might just win the best foreign film or best documentary this year, depending on which category it lands.

A masochist Iroquois huh? I found it interesting but too clever-clever. Certainly a 1 time watch.

Yikes. Been looking forward to this, since it's Kaufman and all. Still gonna have to see for myself, but that's a bummer to hear.



Yeah I will watch it too I guess. But probably not tonight! Switched to Onibaba!



I thought I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS was great. *shrug*
All about opinions my fellow, fellowess I did think it was a great bit of film-making but the story was rather slight.



I would definetely recommend it, and The Mandalorian too, if you haven't seen it
Yeah the Mandalorian season 1 was great, I’ll watch season 2 soon have to get Disney plus back, literally the only thing I use that site for. Dark wing duck series I have a soft spot for too haha. I most recently watched the ‘Chernobyl’ series which I enjoyed but way overrated for me.

I just thought I'd pipe in given the relative dog pile the film was getting.

I do think a film like ITOET demands a paradigm shift away from plot/story and more emphasis should be paid to the themes, idea and execution that it's presenting.



❤️Dominic Sherwood+Katherine McNamara❤️
Agreed.

is thouroughly embarrassed of this old username.
Thunderball (Terence Young, 1965)
Big step up from Goldfinger in terms of visuals and just feeling like a spy movie and I can't believe how hype all the underwater stuff managed to be. Shooting to build tension and actually using the wonderful music they had access to are probably the biggest boons to the film but the plot and set pieces are all fun too. There's definitely still some jank though (the quick turn-around on these film taking its effect) with some bad ADR and rough edits and unfortunately Bond still out here "Baby, It's Cold Outside"-ing people but at least it doesn't heroically save the day this time around. Overall this is the perfect middle ground between the (relative) elegance of From Russia with Love and the silly concepts of Goldfinger and I'm about it.


You Only Live Twice (Lewis Gilbert, 1967)
At its peak its probably the best looking Bond film up to this point. Lots of absolutely stunning wides and some genuinely inspired shots but there's unfortunately also an over-reliance on terrible looking composite shots, which are present throughout the series but never this often and this poor, and as the film goes on (and on) those nice shots appear less and less. The story has the same overall arc the camerawork does as it just gets more embarrassing as it goes (not dropping spoilers but there's some real yikes moments) but at least there's some beautiful new additions to the score.



Current Bond rankings:
01. From Russia with Love
02. Thunderball
03. Dr. No
04. You Only Live Twice
05. Goldfinger



Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, 2nd watch (D)

This is the least lazy of the series, and that's its biggest strength. The movie moves a lot, even though it has stupidly long bouts of nothing every now and then, but it moves. The biggest problem is that it revolves around a teenage douchebag that is never actually made sympathetic to the audience. They have bad stuff happen to him, but he's a douche all the way. It expands on the plot behind everything else in the series, which is good. There's some good stuff to learn here. It plays nearly no role up to now, but hey, meat.

All in all, an unremarkable found-footage movie with a very unlikable protagonist.

Yeah, it was unwavering in it's method in that sense, I do applaud it. Interesting that you say "the idea". I didn't really get a theme or idea that was original apart from regret.
