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

Roma - about the trials and tribulations of a maid for a Mexican family in the early 1970s. The first 20 minutes are a bit slow but it steadily becomes more absorbing even though there are few extraordinary events. The unusual developments that take place are stunningly directed and stick in the mind.

This film struck a chord with my parents (we're of sub-continentental origin) who grew up with servants who practically become part of the family. I don't feel quite as strongly about it because I didn't feel any great affection for any of the characters, but there's no doubt that this is a well-crafted movie.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping


Quote:
Childhood friends Conner (Andy Samberg), Owen (Jorma Taccone) and Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer) found fame and fortune after forming the hip-hop group the Style Boyz. Owen and Lawrence faded into the background when frontman Conner left the band to launch a successful solo career. Now, the egotistical singer decides to film a documentary about his life while he's still on top. When his second album flops, the camera is there to capture his world come crashing down.
I had heard that this was a good comedy that didn't get its due at the box office so I went in expecting to be surprised. Unfortunately I wasn't. If you've heard a Lonely Island song, you've heard all the white boy pop rap songs in the movie and the plot was completely predictable. Sometimes the jokes can carry a predictable movie but there were only a few that I genuinely laughed at. They mostly fell a bit flat or were weak. I'd give it an *shrug emoji*, not terrible but nothing I'd tell my friends about.

Sorry, the movie was too exciting for me to take notes. The best flick of 2018 -- I hope it can find an audience. Be sure to check it out.

Red Sox looking rather amazing, and up 3-1. Brewers in the dumps and the vile LA Dodgers in full control. Some great baseball.

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

First Man... slightly disappointing.
superb acting (Ryan is amazing), true story, well made film, funky results.

I really don't think of Neil Armstrong as a great inspiration for a character study movie. While Neil was far from boring, his personality isn't flashy or exciting... he's merely extremely remarkable.

I understand that the movie was not a moon landing movie but a movie about Neil (which is why I said what I did above), but to completely gloss over the technical and engineering aspects of such a feat of that era is really almost miss construing the historical events that surround such a task.

Neil was a great man, and a historical figure for generations to come... this is just not a great movie.

Re: The Autumn LC Thread: Embrace the Ephemeral.

This is so cool-ish. At the new job, I'm supposed to create a playlist that will be played during my first day.

The list is supposed to be at least 21 songs. I'm currently at 41 and still adding more. It has classical, rap, rock, EDM, punk, and more. Mostly hidden gems most people never heard...

It's tempting to add some of my own music to it, but that feels a little egotistical.

Yep. It's going to be played in the office.

Asking me to share music is just asking for it, lol.

Trying for more uptempo stuff like this:

Not sure what's going on here. Is this still the movie thread? Well, here's my review for:

I'm not sure what's going on either. Something seems screwed up.

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

First Man was quite good....I think what people forget in this age of Star Wars and other space movies, just how difficult and dangerous the Apollo program was.

The Gemini 8 flight reenactment was superb, and completely filmed from the POV of Armstrong and Scott...it was nerve-wracking.

I could not watch the Apollo 1 fire sequence. I had to close my eyes. That's still a horrible, horrible event.

When Apollo 11 lifts off, I loved how they show the pure violence and insanity of sitting on those rockets. Watching the moon landing again was great....

IMO, this is still the most remarkable achievement in the history of mankind.

The moon landing, not this movie.
