Jojo Rabbit (2019)



I was expecting Life is Beautiful I ended up getting Au revoir les enfants and I'm very happy about that. This is one of those films that walks that fine line of being a movie for all-ages but also a comedy. I didn't see the third act twist coming and the way they handled it I was impressed. You've got this great balance between these unknown child actors and known character actors and they all do a great job.

Would you say you liked it more than Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?



The Hunting Party (1971)

Someone could say there's a trend in my western choices of late. In other words, this one's yet another ultra-violent western following in the footsteps of The Wild Bunch and Soldier Blue. It's not as nihilistic as Peckinpah's work but it's bleaker in its tragedy.

Very good looking for an American western and solid cast (Candice Bergen sure picked herself some bloody films at the time). Hackman's sadistic millionaire reminds me of the Reverend from Brimstone (much more than Mitchum in The Night of the Hunter). Violence is quite brutal and the killer with his sniper rifle is almost horror-like, as inescapable as your average monster or a crazed serial killer. Definitely good film.

Modernisation of Hansel and Gretel tale by Francois Ozon. Plenty of shocks too.

Enjoyed the film references to vampire movies. Didn't really have much else.

The last movie i saw was Pet Cementry
I rate it 8/10



Damn, I LOVE that movie, why did you not like it? I watched it with my Dad and he said there was too much campiness.
Campiness doesn't bother me I just didn't think it was funny. The premise isn't something I can get into (Tootsie is the exception) plus I have an issue, in general, with comedies from the 40's and 50's. Once they got to Florida it was a little better but that first hour was a drag.

Give the sequels a shot
I've heard comparatively good things about the second one, so maybe. Even so...

Cold Pursuit -


about time the "Liam Neeson movie" got a deconstruction, such as it is




Dumbo (2019)

Ugh, way to dark and stressful for a Disney family movie. Very little was touching or uplifting and the darker violent scenes were too scary for smaller kids. The little girl was one of the most annoying kids I've seen in a Disney movie. At least Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito were good and the big Dream World amusement park was done very well.

The hand that rocks the cradle (1992)



First re-watch since when it was first out (given my memory, that means first!). Decent story about a psychopathic revenge cuckoo with good all round performances (the husband is a bit wet but I suspect that's the idea). A beguiling Rebecca De Mornay does her best to look calculated and mad (and sexy!). It's a bit one paced and the "shocks" seem so tame now but still decent.
