Das Boot 1981 (Director's Cut)
D: Wolfgang Petersen

A serious favourite of mine. Seen it so many times and never fails to impress. As an enthusiast of the history of the German U-boats and their operations, I'm continually amazed by the incredible attention to detail and authenticity portrayed in so many areas. They did an incredible job. Some scenes are a bit overly dramatic in certain respects but still amazing overall. I wouldn't change a thing. Direction, photography, creative camera work, editing, acting, soundtrack, use of scale models... Just love it all.

From the opening credits:

40,000 German sailors served on U-boats during World War II.
30,000 never returned.


Says it all.
10/10

Das Boot 1981 (Director's Cut)
D: Wolfgang Petersen

10/10
I concur, a true classic. I'm still looking for the full length version though. I know there are a few versions, and I think I watched the middle length one.

Erwin Leder was such a beast in this.

Casino Royale (1967)

What did I just watch ? A comedy Bond that obv influenced Austin Powers etc. Clunky, puerile but in places chucklesome (incredible cameos). On the Wiki page it has 6 directors listed .........WTF, one of them being John Huston. Would like to see the "pitch" for this and the reaction to the preview screenings as it is a total unmitigated mess.

I don't see how you can rate this movie so low. It's a solid comedy.

Woody Allen as James Bond's nephew, gets caught in Cuba and taken to the firing squad. "My doctor says bullets are not to enter my body at any time. I have a very low tolerance for death."

Same here. I've seen the shorter movie version in addition to this but I really need to see the longer 'uncut' one.

I'd rate it even lower. Maybe one of the most excruciating movies I've ever seen.

And just to throw that into even greater perspective...

Don's Plum -


in which Leonardo DiCaprio shows how good he would've been at playing Randal from Clerks

Funny Games (1997) - 6.8/10. It is good film. The plot is set up and executed nicely. The acting is okay-ish. Enjoyed it very much!

Just watched Baahubali: The Conclusion tonight. It is honestly the only movie that I cried and got goosebumps while watching.



Savage Streets (1984)

An 80s rape and revenge film starring Linda Blair and Linnea Quickley. I remembered not liking this too much as a kid and the situation certainly hasn't changed. On a positive note, it has lots of nudity just for the sake of it and the soundtrack is rather good. The script is terrible (filled with filler scenes in high school), acting is horrendous (hard to imagine that Blair once was an Oscar nominee) and the whole is just damn boring.

The Lovebirds (2020)


I had high hopes for this one after seeing the trailer simply because of the chemistry these two seem to give off. I think their acting manages to keep this relatively watchable, but there are several scenes with punchlines that don't land for me. Reminds me of Stuber (also with Kumail Nanjiani) where the two main characters play well off each other, but the script doesn't seem to take good enough advantage of it.

Okay, but why?

I think to be fair you have to at least give it 2.5/5. It's an average movie. It has some very funny scenes, and mostly it's just okay, but there's nothing "bad" about it. Why would you rate it so low?

Hmmm, that's funny?. Not my speed I guess



Warning: does not play well with others


The Invisible
(2007)
3.5/5
When this first came out, my 14-year-old daughter requested to see this. The same as it was back in 2007. I would love to see the original but I know its impossible to find unless I'm somewhere in Europe.



Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love (2019)

A sweet and lovely portrait of Marianne Ihlen and Leonard Cohen and their relationship. 4/5

Fair's got nothing to do with it. I went in knowing it was going to be a silly parody but that didn't guarantee I was actually going to find it funny - I just found it obnoxious more than anything else. Even catching part of it on TV recently only reminded me of what grating nonsense it is. I am under no obligation to "at least give it 2.5/5" and I would think that a self-styled elitist such as yourself would understand that.

Don't worry, I understand, but I still think it deserves a 2.5 rating. Of course, you're welcome to rate it however you please. It's a reflection of what you think and how you feel about the movie, and that's all good. I guess you were being fair in your own way, and objective in your standards. So, I'm satisfied. All I wanted was to know the truth, and now I do.

Overall, most of the movie I found just okay. But, I'm curious, what did you think of Woody Allen's scenes? His scenes were the best in my opinion, and genuinely funny. Did you not think even those few scenes were funny? The firing squad, and the ending where he has the girl on the slab?



Welcome to the human race...
I'm not a fan of Allen in general, much less in this movie.

Not even old Allen, like Bananas, Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Love and Death?



Motel Acacia (2019)

A Filipino horror that would best be described as a mess. It's an incoherent mix of Alien, The Thing, Filipino folklore, and a critique of immigration policies. Technically it's rather decent, but writing is just too much all over the place. It's a boring pile of just about everything.
