I watched Blair witch last saturday (probably? what is time, right?) at an outside screening in the forest around midnight. I was so blown away by the concept of watching a horror movie filmed in a forest while actually sitting in a dark forest and then having to walk home in the dark that I completely overhyped it. I really love a good scare, and it's even better when it's a collective scare with 100+ participants. The movie was pretty atrocious, but the fact that it's seriously freezing at night in october made it a lot harder to focus properly on the movie I wasn't able to get lost in it like I sometimes do with other movies. I was painfully aware of my physical surroundings the entire time and I was shivering so badly that I spilled hot chocolate all over myself too, and then I was not only cold, but also wet and scalded. The movie itself had so little credibility to it that I was actually less scared afterwards.

I go to the cinema from time to time, mostly, feeling disappointed after watching a film.

Grown to expect this. I go for social reasons mostly, or, otherwise, find independent theaters...

Anyway, the last movie I watched was:

Deepwater Horizon directed by Mark Wahlberg.

Spoiler:
Visually entertaining. Successfully gave off the impression of being on a sinking rig with fine shots & bi-polar transitions. Sudden explosions & death, unstoppable, endless collateral damage, eerie silence, desperation, screams & cries, helplessness, emotional, intense, almost overwhelming sound effects (the girl sitting next to me was weeping)... That was the strong point, or focus, of the film, the rest was undeveloped (i.e. the characters, the introduction, which was just mindless rambling that carried on for too long)...

He depicts stereotypes quickly to get a vague idea of the whole situation: the greedy corporate man (who hastily values profit over the safety of the crew), male banter, a martyr, and a careful, responsible leader (showing the solidarity between the crew members), a romantic relationship between a male (member of the crew) and his wife (adding a dimension to the life of a crew member), as well as, and strangely enough, a romantic relationship between a female (a member of the crew) and her boyfriend, who both ride motorbikes and mustangs. I don't know if that is some sort of feminist-affirming plot that just had to be added or something, but who cares, she was a good representation of the masculine type of female (it wasn't exaggerated).

Not something I would personally watch. Still, if you're into emotional provocation, it ain't bad.

I wish they had been able to run Rogue One to an R rating, although obviously in that franchise that was not going to happen. Not necessarily for sex (because there wasn't any) nor graphic violence (although there was a lot of death and mayhem), but simply because it might have been even grittier in terms of making the characters even more morally ambiguous.

They did pull through on this movie. It has its flaws, but it might be more satisfying than TFA tbh. It's more narratively honest, and it's honest about how in war and espionage and rebellion there's some real shit that goes down even by the so-called "good guys," and yet there's some real nobility/sacrifice amid the grime.

Jones is really great -- she brings the human element to the movie. Mikkelsen of course is good in his role, Mendelsohn chews up the scenery but that was his goal and he's kind of great in that over-the-top way. K-2 is a great mix between the analytical/pessimistic C3PO and SWKOTOR's MK-47.

there are a few surprise characters, which I suppose can be commonplace nowadays if you have the budget and tech to do it.

Forgot about this thread.

Anyways, I watched Moana again today with my niece, my nephews and my little cousins. Gorgeous animations and The Rock was on point in his acting for Maui. The film got me interested in Polynesian mythology again (well who else have a goddess who has a flying vagina).

The Neon Demon ended up being little more than a glossed-up piece of shit. Just when I thought it might have something provocative to say, it went off the deep end and became unpalatable.

Elle Fanning was well-cast. Keanu Reeves sucks. It's truly a spectacle of style over substance but I suppose that was the point, wasn't it? But honestly, I didn't need an entire two-hour movie to win me over, it doesn't offer anything that you didn't already know. But if you enjoy the spectacle, then more power to you; the visuals can be mesmerizing and trance-like.

Rogue One is relatively gritty in Star Wars standards but lore-wise it actually made me appreciate the movies even more.

max steel, movie about a gay INTP transformers fan who projects his massive libido into an imaginary transformers friend, who in return sabotages all of his dates with his esfj girlfriend. the actor who plays the teenage kid is a fully grown man which adds sexual awkwardness in scenes with his mother Maria Bello comedic effect. impossible to watch a silly movie like that without thinking about something else at the same time, such as this review.

"beyond", the show. rather annoying. the protagonist is childish and everyone lies to him because apparently he cant handle the truth and the worst is that the audience is being treated the same, every other character in the show knows what is going on but we have to discover it bit by bit, along with the protagonist. and what i have discovered by episode 6 hasn't even been as fascinating as the secret of "stranger things", which is also rather meh.

"the expanse" another show, has the feel of total recall, antiquated ideas about a colony on a different plant full of crooked individuals. watched only one episode.

"sense8" also a show. the most interesting of these shows, on account of story and scenery diversity, but ultimately also meh and not memorable at all. saw 5 episodes a few days ago and can't remember much about them.


most movies i saw recently didn't excite me much. i gave a good rating (8) to 11.22.63, anthropoid, the accountant, bridge of spies, hell or high water. of those, only anthropoid was memorable. but in a painful way.

MOONLIGHT.

It's absolutely stunning and engaging. Beautiful anamorphic cinematography, a film that depicts a portrait of a character's struggle with life, via tone, mood and a You may not identify with the protagonist directly, but you will certainly relate. Highly recommend. Do NOT watch the trailer! Avoid spoilers at all cost because the film develops into something you've never seen before in a film like this; it plays your expectations like a chess grandmaster and wins each time.

Not a movie, but this for the second time

Looking forward to this once I get access to it (along with Manchester by the Sea).

I ended up watching three movies yesterday:

- The Secret Life of Pets. Meh. Jokes were rarely funny (delivery/wording problems), the plot was unfocused, and needed more focus on character. Which is a shame, I like Despicable Me stuff.

- The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Directing was great, he knows how to put together scenes to build tension/dread, and Cox/Hirsch were great. But after a great buildup, it just kind of fizzles out into tired trope. I'll watching any of the director's other movies, though, based on the talent I saw here, though. It just needed a better resolution.

- Finding Dory. Wasn't expecting much of this, but it serves as a direct counterpoint to Secret Life of Pets -- have an actual STORY with compelling characters that you care about, and then add the jokes over top of that to support story. It was much better than I had expected, after the first twenty minutes or so.

What did you think sucked about it?
What did you think of his last film, Whiplash?

Actually it looks like a number of decent movies came out near end of year. Still there was a glut of so-so in mid-year and fall.

EDIT: Three last films I watched were:

Passengers: Surprisingly had a lot of honest emotings centered around what Jim does early in the movie... but then they lost their balls by switching the focus of the plot + opted for an emotionally dishonest ending. Wish they hadn't; Lawrence nails her scenes except for the one she was misdirected on, and she and Pratt have chemistry.

The Girl on the Train: Blunt is decent as an actual female alcoholic, but movie is basically Lifetime for Women rated R. It did inspire me to rewatch Presumed Innocent (a better movie), which is a similar story format but with a male unreliable narrator.

Elle: Great acting, interesting character study + her complex response to masked rape and what her final option is. Believe it or not, Verhoeven directs and does well -- it's his first movie done in french, I think (it's subtitled for us lame-o americans).
