Silence Of The Lambs - 1991

Movie was on AMC last night. I've seen the movie before but not in a really long ass time and mostly just bits and pieces. I'm not sure if I'd ever watched the whole thing with a more mature movie perspective then I have now. I'd seen the end with Jodie Foster many times though.

Take aways:
-Anthony Hopkins is way too good at this role. Iconic turn.
-Jodie Foster was great as well, both deserved their Oscar
-A clinic in horror. Doesn't have to be gory cheap jump scares. Just need tension.
-The end scene in Bill's house is so damn good.
-Might crack my top 100 if I revisit it down the road. Close if not.
-I just think of Joe Dirt when Bill is telling her to put the lotion on . "Dang man, say it don't spray it!"




Iconic film. Superb. Definitely in my top 100.

Marnie - 7/10
Not the best paced for a Hitchcock movie. In the first half, I kept saying to myself, "On with it!", but I was still intrigued, especially with the theme, considering it's bizarre for any time period.



Warning: does not play well with others



The Lodge
(2019)
3.75/5

Never heard of this, but Prime has it for streaming so itís now in my watchlist.
Prime is where I watched it. The documentary takes you down the dark hole that Michael fell into that he apparently couldn't get out of. I always likened him to Jim Morrison from The Doors, but just less controversial. His stage presence and sensuality to be specific are an exact mimic of Morrison's. It makes sense that Oliver Stone actually considered him for the part of Jim in the 1991 biopic before landing on Val Kilmer.

Yeah, I finally saw this for the first time a couple of years ago, it was actually better than I expected it to be.



Queen & Slim (2019)

+


Lovers on the run is a familiar storyline and one that I typically like. This one has a different than usual cultural vibe and that's probably the best part of the movie. The two leads are quite good, as is the music and look. There are some tense moments but overall I didn't find it particularly memorable. Worth a watch for sure.







Snooze factor = Zzz



[Snooze Factor Ratings]:
Z = didn't nod off at all
Zz = nearly nodded off but managed to stay alert
Zzz = nodded off and missed some of the film but went back to watch what I missed
Zzzz = nodded off and missed some of the film but went back to watch what I missed but nodded off again at the same point and therefore needed to go back a number of times before I got through it...
Zzzzz = nodded off and missed some or the rest of the film but was not interested enough to go back over it



Scary Movie 2 (2001)


A guilty pleasure of sorts. Saw it with a bunch of friends when I was younger, so there are jokes in here that still persist today. Definitely the best of the series.



Rise Of The Footsoldier 3: The Pat Tate Story

Changeling (2008)



Involving story about murders of children carried out in California (1920s). It also tells of the way the police tried to get around their poor efforts to locate a missing boy by believing the store or a "cuckoo" for some good press. The performances are brilliant (Jolie and Malkovic) and the real-life story itself is pretty jaw-dropping.




H&K MP5 deserves more praise.

The memories of watching this with friends when I was younger are so funny. We still laugh about the day we watched this film together. But I honestly can't remember much. I'll check it again with the same friends, 'cause now that I saw the picture of the butler I got nostalgic - that cake scene and the last scene of the movie...

Dazed and Confused (1993)



Great film. Terrific ensemble cast. Epic soundtrack. Unlike a lot teen movies it's not so much a coming of age story or a film where there's lots of crazy adventures; it's more just a snapshot of teen life in 1976, which I found very refreshing. The focus is on the characters, the music and capturing the essence of life at that age in the 1970s. I thoroughly enjoyed spending 90 minutes in the company of these characters, in this setting with such a killer soundtrack.


4/5 Stars
