Can't wait for the Bill Cosby biopic that overlooks all of his crimes and ugliness...
You mean like the biopics on John Lennon, Jimmy Page, Miles Davis, Sid Vicious, Elvis Presley did?

Re: Knives Out (2019)

Really enjoyed this. It was engaging, intriguing, and charming. We laughed a lot, and I honestly did not see the twist coming. Very clever the way they played it by showing how the victim died early on. I thought that might ruin the suspense, but it only made the twist that much more surprising and ...

Re: Joker (2019)

A billion dollars in profit for an R rated picture, multiple awards winning, fresh rated by critics and audiences alike movie is somehow also divisive? Narrative of the minority sure is strong these days. di·vi·sive adjective tending to cause disagreement or hostility between people. Sure it made a...

Re: Joker (2019)

I loved this movie. I love real-depressing-sad stories. It just feels real I don't like happy. I don't want happy bright colorful movies. I want depressing shit, man, movies that makes me think about my own life, about how society can be toxic, about how people can be dirty and mean, about my goals...

Re: Joker (2019)

Wow, I mean... I still struggle to see how this film isn't universally seen as very one-dimensional and obvious, but... I guess I should re-watch it, maybe? I don't know. Same. and I don’t even flat out hate this movie!! It definitely has some positives going for it. I’m just bamboozled how so many...

Re: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)

I'm really, really glad I saw the documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor before seeing this movie because is not really a biopic. And that's a very good thing. It doesn't rehash what the documentary did so well. Instead of talking about Mr. Roger's accomplishments and life, it shows his impact through...

Re: Doctor Sleep (2019)

Holy shit. I can't believe they made a Stephen King movie better than the book. That's only happened like once (The Shawshank Redemption). Mike Flanagan really performed magic in the third act (where the book fell apart). He took the strongest parts of the book, and brought them to life in a really ...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Dolemite is My Name was fantastic! Funny as hell but also had a lot of depth. The film really paid homage to Moore's struggle and journey in the same way Moore would have - through humor. Even when it touched on serious issues it never lost it's undercurrent of survival and optimism. Eddie Murphy p...

Re: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)

Took my mentee to see this. We both loved it. I actually think it's better than the first one, but it's been years since I've seen the last one. Great plot, albeit predictable, but it still kept the tension going, and final battle was dope. I do hate that Chiwetel Ejiofor had to sacrifice himself li...

Re: Doctor Sleep (2019)

I have low expectations for this. The book was super disappointing. Started off really strong, and then it was like King just gave up or had a rushed deadline and stopped trying. It'd be great in the movie fixed that, but it's rare a movie improves on the book. Still looking forward to seeing what t...
