All great. I'd want to add City Lights, Mr. Hulot's Holiday, and The Shop Around the Corner.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

A Cure For Wellness https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4731136/
An ambitious executive is sent to the Swiss Alps to find his company's CEO and gets trapped in a mysterious and creepy health spa that is performing weird treatments on its patients.
Quite a dark movie that made me cringe in a few places, not the sort of thing I would normally watch but I did enjoy this one.

re: rewatchable comedies

i'm a big fan of Tropic Thunder, Airplane!, anything Monty Python, and many of the other films listed above, but i don't believe i've yet seen mention of Blazing Saddles (which is in my top 5)

other rewatchable films include Young Frankenstein, I Love You To Death, A Fish Called Wanda, and Clue

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Watched Gaspar Noe's 'Climax and liked it a lot. Movie seamlessly transitions from being a euphoric drug movie into a psychological horror, some cool dance sequences + long tracking shots, Noe's use of colors/lighting continues to be top notch, Noe is more restrained here and doesn't go completely off the rails like he normally does. I've always kind of enjoyed Noe's concepts but Enter The Void goes from interesting to unwatchable pretty fast but with Climax it seems like he's finally figured it out

edit// If you despised Entire The Void you probably won't like Climax, but if you thought Enter The Void was interesting then I think you'll like this.

Just saw an advance preview of Us.
Entertaining and well made, but didn't make much sense. I liked Get Out more.

Hmmm I fell asleep when I watched it guess I should revisit sooner rather than later. I love the main actress from her work in the uk show peep show but the movie didn’t grab me for some reason, probably because I was too exhausted to pay attention

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

May have to avoid Us spoilers til Monday. Cannot freaking wait. I enjoyed Get Out enough, but thought it took a steep decline in the final act. I realize I'm in the minority there. Love Peele's language of film.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

I watched Midnight Cowboy for the first time last night and thought it was great. John Voight’s raw charisma and kinetic energy is undeniable and a pleasure to watch and the movie is ridiculously edgy and seedy for a film released in the 60s.

Room In Rome https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1263750/
Two women meet on their last day on holiday in Rome and spend a passionate and emotional night together in a hotel room. What starts out as a physical encounter, the two women gradually get more intimate and form a close bond which makes parting the next morning more difficult.
A nicely paced, sensual and compelling love story.

Re: Talk About Movies: Part 4

Went to Apollo 11 last night. Very enjoyable, kind of felt like being a little on the inside with the original footage and audio. I also really liked the few times when they put data on the screen.

Then, on the way home, a nearly-full moon had just risen as I was driving eastbound, which I thought was a nice touch.

I am a little surprised that f is for fake went over well... it's slightly inaccessible for many, let alone the younger generation or without a host and a host of explanation.

I gave them some explanation of what they were going to see, so they were slightly prepared. I'm always surprised by what they find intriguing, too.
