Wild Things this is not, but queer girl trash is still watchable trash. It's not even so much the overly twisty nature of things that throw it off, but rather, its sterile look & feel throughout that makes it not quite as slinky/fun as it should be. Jamie Babitt's But I'm A Cheerleader is one of the most beautiful, colorful, beloved films I've seen, with no grand budget itself, then there's this and it's somehow the most olive/beige film around. I wonder why they opted for that, and not having a single note of color. Then the framing in certain scenes is just straight up bush league, it's a bummer. But hey, Madeline Zima can be a (darkly askew) manic pixie dream girl in any film she wants; she's the only thing about this that feels higher than the rest of the content. No regrets though, could be better in enough ways, that ol story. Still, happy Pride month.

Re: The Last Movie You Watched Thread

I went and saw two movies at the theater Tuesday seeing they were only $5.25 each and I could walk out of one theater and into the other about 10 minutes or so before the second one started.

Brighburn

A good popcorn movie. As the commercials showed it is a retelling of the Superman origin. Names changed to protect the innocent. In this case it asks what would happen if as a child Superman was a bit of a brat and had some anger issues. Plus the possibility of he comes from a less peaceful race. What the commercials only partly hinted at, at least to me, is that this movie has a horror movie vibe. It all works to create a fun movie. It is hinted in a credits scene that this could be part of a shared universe with other warped DC heroes including a warped Batman via Rainn Wilson's The Crimson Bolt from Super.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Better than I expected. The monster scenes were cool as I expected but the human dialog was much better. From the commercials I expected a ton of cheesy jokes and lines but really the only ones for the most part were in the commercials. For the most part character development was decent. Since this is a Godzilla movie that is minor thing to me.

The story including the history of the monsters was well done. I saw quite a few nods to past Japanese Godzilla movies. I loved they keep the roar and also a touch of the old music. Based on some things said in the movie and also in the first credits bonus scenes I see how they are setting up Godzilla vs King Kong. Should be good stuff.


On a side note, there was a scene in Godzilla that was similar to one in Brightburn that stood out due to seeing them back to back.

Beat me, if you can. Survive, if I let you!

Mediocre, I heard so much about this, I'm really disappointed.

Cursed entity Jason earns more surrealistic pathos in this piece. This is probably less new of a note from my first review, but it's such a fine point to the film that I have to give it some more shine. The powers are now at an all time high, the killing is bountiful and focused, and yet, we're seeing the tortured self radiate through the damp, goopy, constantly wet mangled reanimated body. There's a pain there that will never fade. Killing is cathartic or addicted, maybe both to Jason Voorhees. Time to rest until resurrection again.

Love it forever.

Booksmart - 2019

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1489887/

Quote:
On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
This is fantastic, hilarious, and great performances by the two leads. Olivia Wilde shows tremendous ability as a director as well. It's just a great buddy comedy movie.

It's just highly enjoyable and what I really liked is it resists the familiar tropes that tend to go along with 'nerds go to big popular party at the end of school etc' type teen movies.

I'd recommend this to anyone. Easily one of the best movies I've seen this year.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

"He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

"Covfefe"

Escape Room - 7/10

Combines the concept behind the Cube and Saw movies, but without much gore. Watchable if not ground breaking. Could have done without the last 5 mins or so completely exposing the organisation behind the "games" and their processes.
