Re: Parasite (2019)

This was pretty damn good. Great characters, spellbinding plot with lots of unexpected turns, excellent commentary on class and what it can turn people into, and a nice mix of dark comedy and drama. There was a constant under current of tension that kept building up nicely. Really well played. I did...

Re: Joker (2019)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/09/movies/joker-movie-controversy.html Still, what struck me most is that what the film wants to say — about mental illness or class divisions in American society — is not as interesting as what it accidentally says about whiteness. For it is essentially a depiction o...

Re: Teaser/Trailer #1

Just saw this trailer before IT and I'm totally intrigued. Can't wait to see more!

Re: IT: Chapter Two (2019)

Aww, man. I really wanted this to be better than it was. It wasn't really scary. I kinda knew that it couldn't be based on the first one, which wasn't very scary either, but I think I was still hoping it would be scarier. I also think it could have been edited a bit tighter. It was a little rambly a...

Re: Let's talk about...[Insert film/person]

Since Glass hits soon... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODoe7X5Fgik 🕷 First of all, this could be a bit lengthy from my side, so bear with me :D To me the video itself was really cheesy and pretentious. It's effective, so I'm not trying to discredit whoever made it (I'm not familiar with this YouTu...

Re: Lady and the Tramp (2019)

I really wish they would stop this "live action" reanimated crap. It's terrible. Looks like National Geographic with dubbing.

Re: The Farewell (2019)

I think I really liked the lingering shots because it ties into the whole theme of time and how much we need to cherish our time with our loved ones. I also loved the way the shots were composed. It is a gorgeous looking film. I can see that. I think it just made me uncomfortable because it did for...

Re: The Farewell (2019)

This was so good. I ended up bawling a few times. I love the way they wove in humor with the poignancy of facing death of a loved one. The ending completely surprised me too, in all the best ways. Awkwafina really stood out here. So did the guy who played the older brother who moved to Japan. Fantas...

The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0FnJDhY9-0 This was an interesting movie. A lot of great commentary about the boxes we put ourselves into and the boxes we create for others, especially around race, family, and masculinity. Had some great symbolism and discussion about gentrification and property ri...

Luce (2019)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5xPoINucr8 Loved it! One of the best of the year,IMO. It challenges the audience in a way that I think many will find uncomfortable. You can tell it's based on a play. Really,makes some,powerful statements about white saviors, black respectability, and stereotyping. ...
