Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

im doing a semi-QT fest and let me just say kill bill is, in fact, good. the house of blue leaves is one of the greatest set pieces of all time, but watching it makes me wish Inglourious Basterds, which I love, had a stronger sense of sweep and cinematic style. A distractingly large chunk of that mo...

Re: The Eternals (2020)

Depends on the religion and who you're around. When you're surrounded by the people you trust and care most about telling you a lifestyle is wrong, regardless of whether it even affects you or anyone else, your brain inclines to align with what you're told. It's scary stuff. That being said, I'm al...

Re: The Eternals (2020)

here's the thing i don't get. even back when i was a super religious bigoted guy, my whole thing was who gives a flying fuck if somebody's gay or not, whether that's in the media or in real life. it affects your life 0% other than exposure to someone different from you.

Re: The Lion King (2019)

Probably a lot of people here? It's pretty relevant to a movie forum to see how average movie goers feel about different types of projects.

Re: John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019)

Those are all the things people love about the first two movies, both the audience and the folks who make them, so of course they doubled down on it in three. Sorry it didn't work for you man.

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

again i'm not dissing it, but there's something missing that's keeping it from being anyone's top tarantino film despite the craft being so good, which i theorize is a lack of emotional through line probably correct about that i also don't think all sections are as tight or as well written as they ...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

the empty feeling is probably more the fatalism of the ending, no?

tarantino implicates basically all tribes in the fucked up-ness of our current society and the roles we play, whether we're active agents or ignorant assholes

Re: Top 10 Movies of 2019... so far

Hollywood has been horrible, but international cinema has been decent in the first half. Hate to sound snobbish, but Americans just have to watch more movies (and read subtitles). don't disagree, but even so this is a weaker year all around for film. lots of 'neat' movies, not so many 'love' movies...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

His dumb voice over and Tatum are glaring flaws. i love the former and don't mind the latter. the most glaring flaw is that the film has no main character, so the whole thing feels detached & observational Tatum's weird casting and performance felt like half the point, it's an affectation. i actual...
