The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible
Quantum of Solace (Marc Forster, 2008)

Craig is a solid Bond and the some of the action scenes are pretty good but the rest is a disgrace. Weak villains, the plot is a mess, the pacing is horrible... I felt bored watching a Bond movie, that shouldn't happen.





I wasn't in a mood to discuss anything yesterday, that's why my opinions were really unclear and I said things that had nothing to do with the film itself, but more a random personal opinion; like war is stupid.

I. Don't. Like. Saving Private Ryan. That's all I need to say here. The end. And because I'm not in a mental state at the moment to go any further with that, without coming across as ignorant, stupid or whatever y'all think I am, then I better keep it at that.
It's no Stalingrad that's for sure.



Gangster Rap is Shakespeare for the Future
Der blaue Engel The Blue Angel (Josef von Sternberg, 1930) -


Started out great but struggled in its second half. Marlene Dietrich and Emil Jannings are excellent.

Iron Sky (Timo Vuorensola, 2012) -
+

Very solid from a technical standpoint but poorly written.
Probably their worst performances in a Sternberg. You should see Jannings in The Last Command and Dietrich in The Scarlett Empress.

The Boy-

I was hoping that this would be laughably bad, which it looked like it could be from the trailers. I wanted The Boy to be terrible, because that would give it a value to me. Alas, my honest rating is mediocre. There's not a lot of good things about it, but nothing is that bad, save for a few dumb lines and overeliance on dream sequences. The acting is fine, the scares are not good but not terrible, the twist sure is a twist, and while it is ridiculous, I can't say that it hurts the movie in any way. I think I like it less than The Forest, but objectively this is a better made film. Worth a rent if you're into doll horror, even.



Hobson's Choice (1954)




What little hope I had of liking this movie stemmed from Charles Laughton and director David Lean. It's a romantic comedy, and it turned out to be a nice surprise. The rest of the cast is terrific, and it's a very funny, charming, and endearing movie.

Thor


Enjoyed this a hell of a lot more than i expected too. I've never read a Thor comic so i didn't know what to expect exactly, i think that was probably for the best. Not much to say about this, some good action, decent plot, acceptable acting. I especially enjoyed Tom Hiddlestone as Loki and Hemsworth was alright as Thor i suppose. The big shock for me was Natalie Portman who i thought was pretty terrible i cringed through most of her scenes like the one where Thor gives her book back; she just didn't seem interested at all.
ET was in Thor? Damn I'll need to go back and rewatch it, I've never noticed him before

Anyway I'm glad to see you enjoyed it Camo. Yes it's cheesy, and camp, and silly. But it's for those reasons I love it. I find it really charming. Hiddleston is a slimy delight as the scheming Loki and I find Hemsworth really likeable and endearing. He's got some good comic timing as well; "I need a horse!"



Man i swear you near blew my brain up there with that ET thing for a minute haha.

Yeah, my favourite part of the movie was possibly when Thor just comes to earth, was pretty hilarious would have liked that to have lasted a bit longer.





The Jungle Book (2016)

Wow, I had a feeling that this was gonna be good and it did not disappoint. Definitely the best of the live-action Disney reboots so far (even though this isn't really "live action" since Mowgli is the only one that isn't CGI) This is movie just looks fantastic, and has a very good balance of both the original Kipling tales and the 60's animated version.

Gravity (2013)

While Gravity is lacking in plot depth and its runtime is too short (something I rarely say about movies), it definitely deserves credit for its spectacular visuals and great soundtrack.

Zootopia (2016)

2016 so far has been a fairly lackluster year in terms of new movie releases, so Zootopia being as great as it is was very refreshing with it's likable characters, great animation, and important messages.

I love that movie. I'd say the visuals are more than "decent." Also loved The Fall, though not as much.
Yeah, well, I have different standards for what constitute good visuals, and even then they only do so much in the context of an otherwise mediocre psychological thriller. The Fall definitely sounds more interesting, though.

Thor is good fun.





That's the stuff, 6 minutes of pure gold.



Great art but bland story and world building: just the usual stuff.

The Great Beauty -


Pretty good, but it feels like I should have seen this before seeing Youth because they do seem to cover a fair bit of the same ground but Youth does a more interesting (and shorter) job of it.
