Mobile Homes (2017)

Imogen Poots stars as Ali, a young woman with a son living with a chaotic and dangerous boyfriend. As they hustle to survive, she worries about how her son might be endangered by their lifestyle. She finds a potential way out stowing away in mobile homes. Callum Turner did a great job as Evans, an abusive delinquent boyfriend who isn't a stereotypical villain, but is actually very human. His human side adds to the dilemma of leaving him for his traumatic elements. Callum Rennie played a sympathetic role as the owner of the mobile homes who showed compassion for Ali and her son. This movie was very realistic and the ending shed me a tear of sorrowful joy.


I've been quietly impressed by Imogen Poots, even though I think it's a made up name



Warning: does not play well with others

Bergman Island(2004)

4.5/5

This film makes me want to make films. It's really inspiring. It documents a great director who's had a lifetime of success, but it has come at the cost of many personal and artistic failures. There seems to be an encouragement though through it all: "Keep working at your life and vision." "Learn from your mistakes." and "Continue to improve and better yourself."



Rebecca(1940)

4/5

I really enjoy Rebecca as a film. It's very "tightly" constructed film by the hands of Hitchcock. Even the performance by Judith Anderson as Mrs. Danvers provides enough reason to watch it. The way she holds herself. Her continual dress of "mourning." Her stern speech. Everything about her is frightening. But ultimately I found myself at odds with the narrative. I don't do well with these "class" films. Lower class woman meets upper class male; or high society films, etc. They just never really have struck much of a chord with me. I can't seem to relate to them I guess...



For All Mankind(1989)

5/5

This film is pure poetry from beginning to end. From it's soundtrack by Brian Eno. To the breathtaking footage which is masterfully captured by NASA and the astronauts. To the rhythm of these footages in the edit. To the recollections of those who came an went to the moon. This film to me illustrates cinematic poetry in motion. Beautiful, beautiful, film...

Just do yourself a favor, and don't watch #4.
I just watched the Violent S*it trilogy! Not watching stuff is WEAKNESS!
Added to my to-watch list.
Kewl. Lemme know when you watched it in like 2024.

Or it could be seen as making better use of your time?

Kewl. Lemme know when you watched it in like 2024.
If you want to know what I think of it, I can bump it up. Heck, just say the word and I'll watch it today.

Seriously? John Wick 1 and 2 are modern action masterpieces. Giving them such a low rating should be illegal.
Now you sound like a Communist dictator.

Heh, na, but I gave John Wick 1 2.5/5, so average. And the second one had considerably less plot and more unrealistic action. So I gave it half a star less, and I'll never crave mindless action enough to watch the last two. If I want action, I can just watch more Nicholas Winding Refn movies.

I Believe in Unicorns (2014)

A teenage girl fell in love with a skateboarding punk and set off on a spontaneous road trip of dreamlike romance, but it wasn't all smiles and rainbows. Natalia Dyer played the lead, Davina, a cute but sad teenager with a fondness for unicorns. When she crushed on a boy named Sterling, played by Peter Vack, the two became entwined in a bitter sweet romance. Sterling displayed some abusive signs, inherited from his abusive father, but love triumphed over their wounds, though the future was uncertain. Julia Garner played Cassidy, Davina's best friend, though her role was relatively small. She only appeared in four scenes, but they were very effective scenes. Garner has a knack for sympathetic cuteness like no other, delivering more in subtle expressions of emotion than words ever could. There was one scene that stood out above everything else in the movie, at least to me. It was about a quarter of the way into the movie, Davina had had sex for the first time with her boyfriend. She was telling her friend, Cassidy about it, and they kissed to demonstrate how good of a kisser "he" was. It was adorably naive, and awkward, and more was said with their timid glances and pursed lips than words ever could. I've never been more interested in over the shoulder dialogue shots, because half of the shots didn't include and dialogue, and they also captured both characters compositionally in an interesting way. The cinematography made great use of sloppy gritty hand held, stop motion, and montages.

H&K MP5 deserves more praise.

I liked it more than the second one.



I love Bruce Willis so I wanted to like this film, but everything felt so weak... the only positive point was Willis himself imo.

Black Moon (1975)

For some reason which I can no longer recall, this oddity by Louis Malle did make its way to my watchlist. It's a dreamlike film with no apparent plot and a ton of stuff that's either allegorical or just weird. Maybe it's about the rise of militant feminism and teenage girl's attempt to grasp what it means to be a woman (implied by the film's literal war on sexes), or maybe it's just dreams and memories of a demented old lady. I don't think it really matters.

The first comparison that comes to mind is Valerie and Her Week of Wonders which does the pudding sexuality thing much better and is also more inventive and daring in its dreaminess (also both have pretty teenage leads flashing some skin). Still, Black Moon is moderately interesting and unpredictable. Maybe this will grow with time but for now, I'm only going to give...

Chatroom (2010)

Imogen Poots played a secondary character in this movie about internet chat rooms. There was really nothing special about this movie, as the main character was a mentally disturbed individual trying to convince another unstable person to commit suicide. There was little story or plot.

Heh, heh. I wondered about that too. But evidently it's her family's name from England. I've always liked "Imogene" since the days of Imogene Coca, from the old Your Show of Shows, and scores of other roles.



⬆️ Poots’s father is not from England; rather, he is from Northern Ireland & perhaps that’s from where their surname derives.




12 ANGRY MEN
(1957)

First viewing. 63 years old but doesn't seem too outdated. Good performances by the entire cast.

SOME KIND OF HERO
(1982)

Richard Pryor in an underrated and overlooked dramatic turn as a Vietnam War veteran and POW, with Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) playing a prostitute.
