Some re-watches here:

 

Jackie Brown - 10/10

One of my favorite movies of all time. There's something about the chemistry between Pam Grier and Robert Forster that is so believable and ultimately sweetly melancholic.

 

Rear Window - 7/10

I know it's a mega-classic and I like a lot about it but some of it never fully clicked with me despite multiple viewings since I was a kid. I'm more into Vertigo and The Birds myself. 


Dial M for Murder was always my favorite

Currently watching the Wu-Tang show on Hulu. It's surprisingly addictive and watchable despite being pretty cheesy. My biggest issue really is that none of them even vaguely resemble the actual members visually so even on episode 4, I have a real fucking hard time knowing what's a big 'a-ha!' moment because I'm constantly fact-checking myself on who is supposed to be who. 

 

The guy playing Ghostface looks exactly like 80s Rakim and the dude playing Method Man looks so absurdly different that I keep forgetting it's supposed to be him. 

 

Another one, not to rag on it too much, but this is one of the most egregious examples of the sets often making zero sense with its supposed setting I've seen in a while. I assume it starts in the late late 80s and half the scenes have like late 90s cars, 2000s pickup trucks, modern security cameras glaringly obvious on the buildings and so on.

Kate - 5.5/10

Strong lead, some decent action, ho hum story.  You won't really care much about what's going on.

 

Never Let Go(2015) is a much better "female badass" movie than any of these recent ones(Gunpowder Milkshake, Volt, Kate, etc).

Don’t Breathe 2 - Well-done thrills, has a hard time justifying its existence as a sequel. The “twist” is hilarious.

American Movie - The fuel I needed. Wish I’d seen it earlier, but also saw it at the exact right time. We all need a Mike Schank in our lives.

Shang-Chi - Tony Leung amazing, Awkwafina works with what she’s got, butchered fights, shrug

Last Year at Marienbad - Been trying to see this for years, did not disappoint. Has an indescribable trance-like quality.

The Aviator’s Wife - Been trying to see this for years, also did not disappoint. I’m such an Anne.

Boyfriends and Girlfriends - And here, I’m totally Blanche. Rohmer has an immaculate gift of creating characters (typically women) who have one very specific trait that I identify with to a frightening degree.

A Brighter Summer Day - 4 hours in a theater flew by. Restoration looks great. Marvelous movie, glad I waited to see it like this.

Four Adventures of Reinette and Mirabelle (rewatch)- Dude made this on a lark while waiting to finish what many consider to be his magnum opus, and it’s just delightful as shit.

Clockwatchers - Parker Posey wheeling out of her cubicle and ripping up paper is, as the kids say these days, a vibe

In the Mood for Love (rewatch)- Another excellent rep screening. Much funnier than I remember. Just as heart-wrenching.

AI Artificial Intelligence (rewatch)- Brittle 35mm print kept breaking at the reel changes. Somehow very appropriate. I cried hard.

Barbara: 7/10 - This is a movie that's kind of hard to wrap your head around towards the beginning. Basically it takes place in East Germany in the 1980s and for some of us the idea of the GDR and West Germany are barely a memory. But with that in mind it's a pretty well put together film. It balances Barbara's life as she goes to work, her preparation to actually leave East Berlin and her oppression from the Stasi into a compelling tale. However, you kind of figure out what's going to happen about halfway through the movie although for what it's worth it seems to conclude in a nice way. At the same time the movie is never truly super depressive I think there is a lot of hope and positivity.

Suicide Squad (2021)

 

Vastly superior to the original not as good as GotG

 

7/10

 

 

Jungle Cruise

 

I did not like the banter between the main characters that permeated the first half of the movie, also a bit more violent than I would expect from a Disney movie.

 

5/10

 

 

Pig

 

Good but not as good as the hype made it out to be.

 

8/10

Malignant: I fucked up. I watched this at home when I should have gone to a crowded theater. I can only imagine the reactions. :lol: 


Honestly, same. I kept hearing that the movie’s greatness is held up completely by the last 30 minutes, but even then I wasn’t expecting it to go as hard as it did. I was full of glee.

6 Underground.  Signature Michael Bay written all over it, but he's made more entertaining, loud, slickly produced, disjointed, thinly plotted stuff.  After a while, this one became background noise.  I gave zero shits about what was going on.

 

I checked my watch at around the hour mark, and was like, "There's still over an hour more of this?"

Malignant - Wans high budget Troma film. This seems to be a love it or hate it and I am more in the latter group. I love dumb campy over the top horror but most of those film dont feel like that was creators intent when making them, they just turned out that way. This film feels a bit disingenuous to what it was trying to accomplish which is probably to harsh a criticism but I cant really describe it. I will say I am harsh on Wan's horror films as I find them pretty yawn inducing but atleast he was willing to try something a bit different then usual.

Also

I saw the killers origin coming from a mile away but I watch a metric shit of horror so I have seen similar origins from others films/shows. I feel the others did it better but thats a minor niggle .

I don’t see how it’s any different than what Raimi did with The Evil Dead. Maybe intentional camp just isn’t your thing I dunno. I personally had a blast!

 

I think most longtime horror fans knew what the twist would be to some extent but I don’t think anyone saw it playing out the way it did. That’s why it was so surprising for people.

I'm pretty sure I've started watching that movie at least 3 times, gotten like 20 minutes in and then realized I've already seen it. It's that forgettable.

Heaven's Lost Property: 9/10 - Another one I had wanted to see for a while even before I had the discs (sounds like a broken record for me :p ) a simple concept, a robot angel with big bobs falls from the sky and becomes the servant to some pervy guy. It reminds me of a time before things became super lewd, so this is like somewhat lewd but innocent. Most of the episodes are filled with fan service because the main character is a pervy guy who just wants to see girls in their panties all the time. It sounds kind of gross but I think it's handled well. The show is meant to be humorous so it has some good laughs and sweet moments. There is an underlying story about her actual origin and such that gets a bit dark towards the end but it's not heavy for too long.

 

I think the animation is really good. It's from AIC who've done other shows I've enjoyed as well (like Nyan Koi) and have done a bunch of Tenchi Muyo stuff in the past as well. It's bright and colorful and also very sharp and smooth animation, even for gag bits the animation quality remains high. I think this is also the only show I've seen that has a unique closing sequence animation and song for every episode, truly remarkable.

 

Also heathens into English dubs will be happy to know Brittney Karbowski does some voicework here, so the dub (which I haven't heard) is likely good.

In any case, very fun and something that exceeded my expectations. On to season 2!
