Re: HBO's Watchmen

Extraordinary. Just extraordinary.

And I thought the Dr. Manhattan birth sequence was iconic in the Snyder film.

And the ending

This show is amazing.

I do have one (technical) problem with the episode
The Dr. Manhattan CGI effects felt a little cheap...no?

Re: Best Films of the Decade 2010-2019

I feel comfortable with this these 12. Not in order except the top 2 which are all-time great masterpieces in my opinion. I think about them most days Inside Llewyn Davis Annihilation The Social Network Whiplash Birdman Arrival Blade Runner 2049 Phantom Thread Roma The Lighthouse The Irishman Parasite

Re: HBO's Watchmen

That twist came out of nowhere The most interesting thing about it is Angela being in on this whole thing. A big WTF. Next episode will be huge to judge if what they did was clever or random. Also the Veidt story needs to fucking move on. I like the scenes on their own but I feel like this week's sc...

Re: Knives Out (2019)

I'm seeing haters on Twitter deplore that Johnson ''subverts expections...AGAIN!''

In. A. Whodunnit.

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Genuinely surprised the conclusion to the massive Skywalker saga does not have a longer running time. It’s about 10 mins shorter than Last Jedi. Bacon believed Johnson has left too much stuff for Abrams to handle in the final chapter. Seems like Abrams himself doesn't agree. I do agree with James B...

Re: Knives Out (2019)

What a film :clap: An incredibly clever, funny and thematically rich script. I think this may be Rian's best one and am so absolutely delighted that this almost-impossible-to-hate film comes to the TLJ haters out there. Ana Armas just stole the film. This is completely her film. Craig was great, but...

Re: The Irishman (2019)

I just finished it and I absolutely agree The first 45 minutes is... kinda generic Scorsese-gangster stuff? I really wasn't that impressed. And the de-aging for De Niro is a bit spotty at the beginning. Maybe I just got used to it after. Anything pre-Hoffa was just not as good as the rest But it jus...

Re: HBO's Watchmen

Yeah, I thought Ep. 1-4 were too much based on mystery-box narrative, 5 & 6 were absolutely extraordinary television. Especially last night.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Gangs of New York A glorious mess. An amazing first fifteen minutes An all-timer performance from DDL Exquisite world-building and sets A solid performance by Leo despite the relative blandness of the writing Yet the film's pacing is strangely uninvolving, especially with the Diaz subplot being abs...

Re: HBO's Watchmen

Yeah I think it's my main problem with the show so far, it's extremely plot-driven.

The Westworld comparison is really spot-on. It really isn't a character-driven show like The Leftovers.

Which really puts a lot of pressure on its conclusion
