Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

Blade Runner 2049 is by the far the best movie I've seen this year. Think the story kind of falls apart in the last third of the movie but the story was the last thing I cared about. The visuals, the sound and the way Villeneueve sets up scenes were all amazing, dude is a master of ambiance. While some people might be bothered with the slow pacing of the movie I really dig slow burn type movies/ tv shows and despite the movie nearly three hours I never really felt bored because there were so many things to look at on screen. Can't wait to go back and see it again in IMAX a few more times.

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

apparently bjork has accused talentless hack and part-time nazi lars von trier of sexual harassment during the filming of dancer in the dark

to compound the story, she basically says that his next movie Dogville, a movie where Kidman's character gets raped a bunch (and the worst movie I've ever seen) was made as a reaction to Lars Von Trier being repeatedly rejected by her.

this makes me perversely happy, because the people who praised it looked like gullible simpletons. the man clearly hates women, and depravity and humiliation for the sake of it isn't art. hopefully his reputation and oeuvre get shipped off to the garbage bin....probably unlikely.

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

I've seen two Lars von Trier movies

Breaking the Waves >>>> Melancholia

I saw enough of Nymphomaniac to know that I hate it.

Dancer in the Dark seems like it might be good though. I'm conflicted - I really like Bjork, but don't want to support the Nazi who harassed her. You'd think that she'd want people to see it, but she's definitely not predictable, so who knows?

domer, did you see that one? You didn't like Breaking the Waves?

Von Trier films are great. He is a genius.

If he sexually harassed Bjork he should be in jail but it has nothing to do with the quality of his films.

Melancholia was very good. Nymphomaniac was much ado about nothing. Havent seen Dancer in the Dark or Breaking the Waves. Remember liking Dogville but dont remember as much about it.

I didn't hate Melancholia. Like 6.5/10 or something. I liked Breaking the Waves a lot, but it was 21 years ago and I don't really remember it that well.

Re: Movies: Talk About What You've Seen Lately--Part 3

Watched the Spielberg documentary on HBO. A little long but well worth watching if you're a fan of his films. 7/10

Also watched an indy movie called Blue Jay with Marc Duplass and Sarah Paulson. Very small-scale, 2-character movie. Interesting film about regret and nostalgia and choices made when we're young. Duplass is not my favorite but he was pretty good in this. Paulson was fantastic and really carries the movie. It's on Netflix, worth checking out, 7/10.

von Trier's Antichrist was very good.
