Casino (1995)

Still an incredible movie despite Vegas kicking my ass when I was there a couple months ago.

Saw Good Boys! Pretty funny movie! 6/10

this has aged all kinds of badly
I really just want you all angry and confused the whole time.

Steamboat Bill Jr. (Charles Reisner & Buster Keaton, 1928)

Sadly just didn't float my boat that much
Pre-1930 Countdown

Almost famous for having nailed Madonna once

with all the creativity, all they could muster up is time travel, the oldest movie trick in a movie.
It depends on the story but I think time travel as the solution often feels weak (Star Trek had this a lot, with poor time travel logic). I've still not seen X-Men: Days of Future Past in full but it alienated me from the franchise because of the sway towards science fiction (my genre!), the amount of characters, and the time travel link up with the original cast. To be fair the method of time travel there is very believable and interesting – I'd compare it to Quantum Leap.

The Hateful Eight

Been on a Tarrantino kick lately, they do seem to get better on second watch and Hateful Eight might be the fastest three hour film in the history of cinema.

The Counseleor (2013)

Rather under-whelming drama about a cartel counselor that decides to take a walk on the wild side and become involved in the real high earning end part of his every-day life. Considering the cast, director and writer it's quite pallid and can't decide what it wants to be. A talky, contemplative film (McCarthy), or a multi-character quick-cut film (Scott). Ultimately I don't think the source material, director or actors produced anything memorable at all.

Happiness (1998) was pretty great

Pretty messed up, pretty great nonetheless!!!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2018, B)

Committed and affectionate collage of the late 60s à la Inherent Vice, The Long Goodbye etc., using the three stars as indicators of up and downs in the industry hurtling towards a cultural shock. But what if...the shock never happened?? For once, Tarantino's blatant indulgences come across well and immerse us in the period, but simultaneously show off his weak spots. Are the hippies just too idiotic?

Captive (1986)

Probably made as a bit of an exploitative effort but this has it's qualities. Clear parallels make it a "version" of the Patty Hearst story (I don't think it would go even as far as "unauthorised" or "based on fact"). There's an eerie, sensual feel to the cinematography which I don't have a problem with. Another thing that makes this stand out is the music by Dave Evans...The Edge of U2 fame. Moody and considered.

Murder! (1930) - 5.5/10.

Hitchcock in his formative years. He was a bit all over the place really with this one. A nice watch, but nothing to remember fondly. Audio in those days was so new that a background score or a radio playing can turn dialogues off almost! Fun but nothing special!

Possession - 6/10
I've been trying to watch a movie, and this was the first one in a long time I didn't turn off, only because it was a bit different. Not great, but I still appreciated watching a movie.
