Rate The Last Movie You Saw

Tools    





2001 Monolith spotted at McDonald's Drive Thru
Sausage Party 6/10.
If you're offended by racial stereotypes you probably should stay away from this one. Lots of sexual innuendo and metaphysical questions. Probably best not to read too deeply into it. Fans of Seth Rogan and "Borat" will like this one.

Don't Breathe 7/10
Good suspense. Some of it was not believable, particularly near the climax.



The Fountain -


Criminally underrated sci/fi flick that only gets better with time.


Jason Bourne -


Damon should have left the series on a high note. This is more in line with Legacy than the others, which are mediocre at best.





Triple 9 (2016)




Nothing good comes from staying with normal people
The french connection (1971)




Good performance from both Hackman and Schider, but Fernando Rey takes the cake as Frog one for me completly because of a seven minute foot chase between Rey and Hackman, ending in a game of 'in or out' on a subway platform and Rey waving to Hackman as he leaves. Otherwise the movie draged a bit, too much survailence, too much time spent in a car watching someone eat. Basically a good movie, but it didn't grip me.

Hobgoblins (1988) - 2.7/10




Amazing puppetry in this movie...

Supposed to be one of the worst ever - most of the reviews for this thing are filled with intense hatred. It's a really bad movie, but I laughed a few too many times to despise it that much.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?


Ugetsu Monogatari (Japan 1954)
++ Quite the fairy tale in its execution. The husbands irritated me and made it hard to watch, unfortunately.



The Poughkeepsie Tapes - John Erick Dowdle


- This as to be the most brutal, disturbing and realistic Serial Killer movie ever made.... you litteraly travel in the head of a psychopath with this movie and it's weird as f*ck. This was also a rewatch and I think I even find it more disturbing than the first time. I really realize how much this movie is pure sickness. I'm a fan of this kind of stuff and extreme cinema weirdos sh*t and it was probably the best of them all. If you like Extreme movie and realistic disturbing things you'll LOVE this flick. (Cricket I'm talking to you right here)

but I'd be interested in hearing more about how the motivation and resolution surrounding the villain cheat the movie's message.
A day late, but I do want to answer this.
WARNING: "Kubo Spoilers" spoilers below
WARNING: spoilers below
Lying to the grandfather in an attempt to redeem him goes against everything that the movie had set up to that point. The film is clearly about memories and storytelling, and how memories of the dead live on through the stories told by the living. In the beginning, when Kubo's mother struggles to remember her husband, it is meant to be sad. When Kubo's father has his memories taken away, it is seen as a tragedy by every character. The Moon King robbing them of their memories and stories is such a horrible thing that it initially motivates Kubo, both in his decision to become the town storyteller as well as his decision to trust the Beetle warrior. But at the end, Kubo and the townspeople essentially steal the memories of the grandfather, denying him his story as well as the story of his children, and the audience is supposed to think that this is a cause for celebration. It can't go both ways. By performing the same action as the villain at the beginning of the movie's timeframe, Kubo has literally become what he quested to defeat.

Non-spoiler version/TLDR: When the villain does something to a supporting hero, it's an evil action that motivates the story. When Kubo does the same thing to the villain, it's a happy resolution. "evil" and "happy" are polar opposites, as are "motivation" and "resolution". The thematic inconsistency means that one of those events must nullify the other.

The guy who directed such classics as Quarantine and Devil directed the most disturbing film ever made?

I don't believe you.

Ight, I'll add it to Netflix! Cool.



Frankenstein (1931)



This was better than I expected, but I thought the part about giving the monster an abnormal brain was kind of unnecessary because the monster wasn't really a murderer. In most cases, when he killed, he either didn't realize what he was doing or he was defending himself. That made him a very sympathetic character.






Bride of Frankenstein (1935)



Not bad, but not as good as the first movie. I expected the Bride to be in more of the movie, and when we finally do see her, it's kind of a letdown. Also, the monster loses some of his sympathy in this movie.






The Mummy (1932)



This movie was just okay, but not because it's a horror movie. I think the whole Mummy concept just isn't my thing. I found most of it kind of boring.

OPEN FLOOR.



There's an unintentionally funny scene in Frankenstein that I always laugh at.
The creature enters Elizabeth's bridal suite and when he sees her he lets out a "Raaorrr!"
But it comes off like in the old days when guys would make a growling noise to express their attraction to a woman (kind of like "hubba hubba!")
Karloff was supposed to sound like an angry monster, but he comes off sounding like, "Whoa! I just found myself a hottie! Raorrrr!"



In the Heart of the Sea (2015)

I enjoyed this fictionalized account of Herman Melville receiving the inspiration for his novel Moby Dick from the youngest survivor (now aged) of the whaling ship Essex, which in real life was struck and sank by a sperm whale. The first mate wrote an account of the disaster, which greatly inspired Melville. But that was not the only inspiration for the book. Melville, as a young man had served aboard a whaling vessel for a time, and there was also an account of a white whale that had attacked many ships, usually off the coast of Chile. He took these various accounts and molded his own tale into a novel. The youngest survivor did not give Melville an account as depicted in the movie. Why the filmmakers decided to go with the youngest survivor tale instead of just telling the tale, I don't know but it's still an enthralling movie. I guess by the time he wrote the tale, a younger crew member would be the only one still living, but I don't know.

Anyway, the cast is excellent, led by Liam Hemsworth as the first mate, Cillian Murphy as his best friend, Benjamin Walker as the captain of the Essex, the awesome Brendan Gleeson as the now-old crew member telling Melville his tale, Ben Whishaw as Melville, and Tom Holland as the younger version of Brendan Gleeson. They all mesh together great, and director Ron Howard makes this "based-on" true life story compelling all the way through. The sea-going scenes are fine and the attacks by the white whale are realistic. Besides the whale attack, there are several other disasters and setbacks that prey on the men. A well-done movie that I wouldn't mind seeing again.
