Is there like a club for Avatar haters or is it just the done thing to rip on it? Just asking for a friend.Did not have you pegged as a Cameron fan. I'm trying not to imagine you framing Terminator 2 in the Marxist dialectic.
I'm not sure I'd even consider T2 the best Cameron action film of all time with, to my mind, the space marine hokum of Aliens being superior.
Oh...and feck Avatar.
Persona worth a watch as well.The Seventh Seal
My first Bergman movie! Might as well start with his most(?) famous film.
It was enjoyable enough, though I guess it's one of those films that can be analyzed to death(no pun intended). I really liked the protagonist and the guy playing Death. The humor was also surprisingly good.
Of Bergmans the only i would watch again are Persona, Winter Light, Autumn Sonata and maybe Through a Glass Darkly.Noted.
I try to watch at least 3 movies from all the big directors. 'Persona' and 'Fanny and Alexander' will be my next two Bergman films then
Kaufman is infinitely better when he has an optimistic director (Jonze/Gondry etc) to level him out ... left to his own devices he’s still very good, but niche and inaccessible... not to mention incredibly depressingI liked it. Probably is a bit pretentious but thats Kaufman really isn't it.
Niche, inaccessible and depressing are all fair criticisms of the movie but thought it was one of his better ones in a fair while despite that. Found it kind of relatable despite everything. The exaggerated aging of his parents kind of hit quite hard for me, due in part to timing. If I tried to tease a rational narrative out of them scenes I'd struggle but it felt pretty easy to understand all the same.Kaufman is infinitely better when he has an optimistic director (Jonze/Gondry etc) to level him out ... left to his own devices he’s still very good, but niche and inaccessible... not to mention incredibly depressing
Attack of the Unknown
A SWAT team transporting a vicious crime syndicate boss must fight their way out of a county detention center during a catastrophic alien invasion.
WTF have I just watch? The acting was bad, the story was worse, well there was no real story, gang leader gets caught, aliens land destroy a few cities and leave, the special effects, well there was none.
Avery poor attempt at a Sci-Fi action film.
You're on a roll this weekendBreach
On the cusp of fatherhood, a junior mechanic aboard an interstellar ark to New Earth must outwit a malevolent cosmic terror intent on using the spaceship as a weapon.
I only watched this because it has Bruce Willis in, but even he could not save this utter shite of a horror film, FFS he must have needed the money badly to be in this.
An all-round dreadful film, with an ending that you saw coming a mile off
Glad someone else had the same experience. Expected it to be total trash, but was actually a decent movie.Watched Greenland yesterday. A disaster movie starring Gerard Butler had all the makings of a terrible movie, but it's actually quite good. I don't think the film had a huge budget because the focus is more on the family as opposed to the special effects-laden destruction that you typically get with this type of movie. And to the film's credit, it actually works. I liked the characters and was genuinely rooting for them. There are a few absurd moments and some parts are very contrived, but on the whole, it was a genuine surprise considering I went in with very low expectations.
Can you fly Berba? Can't belive it took you 34 years.Robocop
Finally saw it. Spoilt by the fact that I've seen/heard about all the famous scenes, and also knew the main themes and basic plot. Still it was fun 8/10.
Virtuosity (1995): (Spoilers!)
The villain of the movie is a liquid metal terminator, who is from a Matrix-style immersive program, and is an AI built using the personalities of Hitler, Charles Manson, and a fictional left-wing terrorist. It's a 1995 movie about cyberspace. Given the premise, I wanted something sillier than it was. Unlike Johnny Mnemonic, the nonsense doesn't escalate. 6/10.
Disagree with your overall score, but absolutely with the mix. His muddy dialogue thing is annoying, because that's the one thing he shouldn't take for granted (that the audience can guess what's being said: see Interstellar for more gregarious examples, obviously).Tenet
Overly complicated and mess of a narrative which can be boiled down to: a group of people must use time travel to stop some baddies getting their hands on a device that can cause the end of the world. Some impressive action scenes aside, there wasn't much to enjoy here. Doesn't help that half the time, I couldn't make out what anyone was saying 3/10
I think he's forgotten that we're not in the thick of the action, we're watching a movie and want to know what's going onDisagree with your overall score, but absolutely with the mix.
