The Game is lots of fun.

Fincher easily makes my top 5 living directors list, I find all of his stuff very (re)watchable.

+1

of course the plot is ludicrous and full of galaxy sized holes but man it looks great and is lots of fun he just has such a fantastic style you always know you're watching a Fincher film.

I remember leaving the theater pissed off after seeing The Game due to the aforementioned issues. I've rewatched it a couple times and enjoyed it, knowing to suspend my disbelief

Plus we get Tense Michael Douglas, I don’t think it’s possible to dislike any movie starring Tense MD

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Stumbled upon an interview with Fiona Apple who said the reason she quit cocaine was because she got stuck in a private movie theater with PT Anderson (who she used to date) and Quentin Tarantino. “Every addict should just get locked in a private movie theatre with Q.T. and P.T.A. on coke, and they’ll never want to do it again.”

Pretty funny mental picture

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Rewatched Last of the Mohicans for the first time in years.

I used to always try to quality movies as ‘the best’ or ‘one of the best’, and although I find that harder to do now, for what it is, LOTM has always been and apparently always will be one of my favorite movies of all time. The stereotypes are a bit cringeworthy for me at this juncture but the cinematography, the battle scenes, the characters, the score, the completely believable white-hot fireworks between DDL and Stowe, and the (all-time great) last 25 minutes make it a movie I will never get tired of rewatching.

Those Who Wish Me Dead is in post production, for those looking forward to some more Sheridan

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

You had me at "more Sheridan" but Those Who Wish Me Dead sounds sooooo good.

Also enjoyed Hell or High Water over Wind River, but that's purely personal preference.

Great review. The representation of the French and Natives (and consequently, putting the English on a pedestal) always tilted the shyt out of me, but man the production, the music score are lead actors are amazing af

Love this movie, it’s maybe a bit overly melodramatic but I don’t care I love it. Great musical score and cinematography.

Also one of the best one liners:

“In case your aim is better than your judgment.”

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Finally got around to watching Jojo Rabbit. We loved it. Not at all what I expected but I guess I didn't really know what to expect.

I know it has been discussed here a bunch but I'm super late on the Sam Rockwell fanboy train. He knocked it out of the park here.

We usually watch tv in bed for a bit and I switched it to The Green Mile Hadn't seen it in a while and I was delighted to again see Rockwell. I had forgotten much of the move including him.

The guy is just phenomenal.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

what was truly horrible was the new Charlie's Angels. So boring.

Richard Jewel was also pretty boring

It's wrong in so many ways. The only character you give a f*ck about is Jena Malone's, and that's owing to Jena's magnetism - and has nothing to do with writing or direction.

There's that 1 aberrant vampire scene that just comes and goes. I couldn't finish the flick, made it like 4/5ths the way through somehow( being slightly phased on weed didn't even make it fun lol)

the director is a total pretender. He sets up that scene, wherein the 13-year-old in the adjacent room is likely getting raped, so he can pan-out from that ear-pressed-against-the-wall silhouette, and it's old af after the 1st 3 seconds.

he's a horrid 'artist' holy christ

even gave Bronson a chance, just to be thorough, and it lasted 60 secoinds - whatever that hipster opening was lmao, total garbage.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

there's zero mood as well, absolutely none, despite all his trickster bullsh*t

lol panther or some crap in her hotel room... it's desultory junk

that one pulse scene at the club early was alright, but it was just another transient, superficial scene
