Most of all, I'm annoyed that so much of the elements that pushes the plot forward requires me to read something. Newspaper headlines, letters, medical journals. The movie is filled with lazy, uncreative writing.
Yes. And direction doesn't elevate those scenes either.

Transit may not be perfect but definitely far more than an ok film. Also it's a 2018 film, though I know why Vader puts it in 2019.

Re: Joker (2019)

I found the score sort of overbearing and it was used excessively. Probably a different director could have utilized her better.

Re: Joker (2019)

This is an empty movie. There's nothing here. But it's watchable for what it's worth. How did Martel let it win at Venice, I mean she just made Zama.

Re: Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House

Two episodes into this show and I'm about a hundred pages into the book (the show and book are not alike at all). Just wait for 6th. Still can't believe they pulled off something like that so wonderfully. Also, since the next season is Haunting of Bly Manor, I should mention that a Turn of the Scre...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Johnny Guitar is easily my favorite Ray for now and I really love Rebel and Lonely Place. I'm curious about Bitter Victory as that's Godard's favorite Ray I think. Casino (1995) The only fault of this movie is it exists in a post Goodfellas world. Calling it a replica would be an understatement. But...

Re: Joker (2019)

Was all this chaos talked about when TDK was released? Help me to recollect it's obviously different when it's a main character where you're supposed to empathize with to one extent or another. It's closer to movies like godfather, goodfellas, taxi driver, wolf, thief, raging bull, nightcrawler, th...
