Ken Loach is a go-to for slice of life dramas (the only others on the same level are the brothers Dardenne). By now, he must have tackled every permutation of the working class struggle. The octogenarian Loach reverses his retirement w/ Sorry We Missed You. It sees good people defeated by circumstances... and, most notably, the system. It's extremely engaging and immersive - you are dropped into their lives, fly-on-the-wall style. It's reminiscent of Raining Stones, w/o the criminal element. There are a few hokey moments near the end, but it doesn't detract from the overall tense experience. 8/10.

When every moment in my life I was lost in imagination, it pretty much played out exactly like this wonderful film does. The internalized destruction & invincibility, smashing things & building them up at will. Probably not with the slapstick timing/kinetic energy of the Raimi/Campbell combo, but still sooooo very close. Such an indescribable feeling. An excellent trilogy at work here.

Interesting crime/gangster thriller with a studded cast. Never heard of it until i picked it up in Arrow's BOGOF blu ray sale. Christopher Walken is in the lead role and does an excellent job as a ever so slightly crazed crime boss who's come out of klinkto retain his power. The supporting cast is good to look through too as it features Wesley Snipes, David Caruso, Laurence Fishburne and Steve Buscemi in roles before they hit big.

Ready Player One

The first half was blah. If I ever decide to try watching it again I will let you know about the second half.

To be fair I am sure it is a decent enough movie. The problem is I read the book first. They totally butchered it. I do not read a lot but this is the worst book to movie I have seen since World War Z. People complain about remakes and reboots, and often with good reason, but to me the biggest evil in Hollywood is buying an existing product like the rights to a book, basically rewriting the whole thing while only keeping a few key pieces here and there then cash in off the books name. We need truth in advertising for movies. If the movie is like less than 80% or maybe 70% like the book the movie needs a different title and can use the line "inspired by the <book name> book". Screw you Hollywood.

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

Child's Play (2019)
Mark Hamill does a great job with his voice. There are differences between this and the original, such as the implementation of modern AI technology. It has some light hearted comedic moments, but I really don't like those cheap jump scares where all they do is tap someone on the shoulder and then there's a big booming sound behind it, or when someone walks by and then there's a startling sound that accompanies what is basically nothing to the characters on screen, but to the audience, it's meant to startle them. 5/10

A classic british horror movie. Full of atmosphere and charm that keeps you glued to the screen throughout. It has a superb balance of light and shadows and it's all shot so well for something that's low bugdet in nature. Just a tremendously captivating film.

Re: The Last Movie You Watched Thread

Because I am interested in seeing Hobbbs and Shaw later this summer, I decided to finally dive in and watch all the Fast and the Furious movies. Its amazing that its taken me this long to finally dive in and watch these films, but here we are.

I started with the first one today.

Holy shit this thing is dated as fuck! lol. The music and song choice really took me back to High School...the time in my life when I hated music the most.

Its an overly macho adrenaline rush with (at best) middle of the road acting, some bizarre editing, but some wild action sequences. It is the type of movie I'd probably expect to be a direct to video/streaming nowadays, but I guess back then it was more of a trendsetter. It was also weirdly refreshing to see an action movie before a time when CGI took over everything. Every stunt in this film looked real and like the characters were in danger, which added to the excitement.

It is also kind of fun to compare it to Point Break.

Not my favorite movie by any stretch, but enjoyable enough and it kind of serves as a fun time capsule to what cinema was like in the early 2000s.

6/10

Re: The Last Movie You Watched Thread

Lord of the Rings Trilogy: Extended Editions.

A+

These movies still hold well. I love them and I don't mind some of the changes from the book considering the movies would be even longer without them (only a had full of people like people could sit through three five hour movies). Great acting, great live actions sequences, great locations, great costumes, and the cgi serves the story and is not a distraction. After watch it none of the live action scenes in GOT top the ones in the Trilogy. These movies are still emotionally moving for me (as a fan of the books) after all these years.

WCW fans who can't let go of the past are killing pro-wrestling today. There I said it.
