Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Just watched The Hunt which I found to be extremely entertaining and action packed. Basically a different version of the Deadliest Prey. But in the end its the age old story of the wrestler versus the boxer.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Uncut too uncontrolled for me.
The Hunt is on my watchlist. Sounds entertaining.

Well I just watched a "generational" movie which featured acting by either the son or the grandsons of each of these super stars:
Alan Alda
Richard Attenborough
Clint Eastwood
Mel Gibson and
Mick Jagger!
Good movie. Eastwood's son shined. Let you guys figure out the name.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

The Old Guard is a helluva concept with a boring execution. If it was a pilot for a TV show, it'd be a great start, but as a stand-alone movie - it's too much set-up and not enough engaging story.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I thought The Hunt was pretty terrible tbh. And Gilpin kept doing this thing where it looked like she was having a stroke. I dunno what the deal with that was, but it was weird.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - The most reassuring actor in Hollywood (Tom Hanks) plays the most reassuring person ever (Mr Rogers). The focus is more on the semi-real, cynical journalist who interviews Mr Rogers and is bowled over by his kindness. Heartwarming without being treacly sentimental.

Can certainly understand & respect that response; but, it was the lack of control - the chaos generated by & surrounding Ratner - that pulled me in like an eddy dragging me down into a degenerative world.

Talk About Movies: Part 4

Richard Jewell was very strong all around. Rockwell is skyrocketing up my underrated list. Same with the lead. I was 12 when the bombing happened and remember it vividly because my cousins had just moved to ATL. Wild story. I was shocked this only had 75% on RT. Much closer to the 96% audience score.

One of the soldiers that participated in the actual battle plays himself in the movie along with all those actor progeny mentioned earlier. (No rap music here but some other music and even some dancing.)

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

^ ^ Rockwell has been one of my favorite actors forever, I like seeing him get his due. For a somewhat under-the-radar top-5 Rockwell performance (as well as one of my favorite sci-fi movies ever) check out Moon.

Donnie Brasco - Somehow had never seen it. I thought it was pretty good. I forgot how good Depp can be, and the flawed characters play off each other well despite all being well-trodden mafia stereotypes. The score annoyed me for some reason.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I first became a fan of Rockwell when he played a red shirt character in the best Star Trek movie of all time.

I loved The Invisible Man. Moss is just astounding. Very original take that is well-executed. This film is not what you're expecting, and that's a good thing.

Yeh my wife and I both liked that a lot. And Iím not a horror guy. Cool idea and few better actresses for the role than Moss. Probably relatively cheap to make too.

I agree Moon was great and opened my eyes to the potential of sci-fi.

Arizona Dream now on Criterion. Dom mentioned this a few years ago. I've only seen Kusturica's Underground, which is terrific.

I fell asleep about half way through last night but yeah, the concept is really great. The marine soldier bugs me though so I am not sure how I will like the rest of the movie. Charlize Theron is so damn good looking.

I haven't seen it since the 90s, but it may be the perfect movie for these lunatic times.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Arizona Dream is a shaggy dog of a movie...Kusterica's first English language movie and he goes for magic realism that doesn't always work. It's not a good movie, per se, but it is a memorable and entertaining movie.

I see that the original release was shorter and cut by the studio, but the restored version is almost two hours long...I wonder which I saw back in the day? Going to watch it this week.

Johnny Depp
Faye Dunaway
Michael J. Pollard
Lili Taylor
Paulina Porizcova
Vincent Gallo

And oh yeah, Jerry Lewis!

And a flying fish. And eskimos!

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I think Uncut Gems might be a good movie. I've only watched part of it. It causes me to feel such anxiety that I have to stop watching it. I've done that twice and I'll try to finish it eventually but I can't remember a movie making me feel this way. Good Time is an example but I don't recall it making me feel so nervous like this one does.
