    That image makes me feel inferior, because I am not Keanu Reeves.

    Someone mentioned Bill Paxton in the previous thread (in reference to Club Dread I think, which I haven't seen), and it reminded me of how I love him in Frailty

    So I decided to look around some Frailty stuff

    and Matthew McConaughey wears the same jacket in Interstellar that he wears in Frailty

    I am convinced it is secretly a sequel

    the anna karenina with keira knightly and kick-ass took its movie-as-play in a quite literal sort of direction. I remember liking it, though overall reception of that aspect seemed a bit tepid

    I saw pacific rim 2.

    I wandered in with very low expectations, but was actually really entertained! It isn't a great movie or anything and they definitely prioritised action over characters, and nothing particularly feels earned, but the action scenes, while lacking the neat, neon-gothic night setting of the original, had a cool energy to them.

    Up was on TV tonight, I hadn’t watched it in a few years

    That movie still hits me like a truck. We actually missed the famous opening and I was still crying long before the scrapbook scene. I’d forgotten about the “boring parts” speech and the house burning/Kevin choice (which was absolutely gut wrenching). The score, especially in moments where the main theme becomes more triumphant, was so affecting

    That’s such an incredibly well-made and emotional movie. I think a lot of times nowadays it doesn’t get the credit it deserves, I think the rest of the film is often overshadowed by the (brilliantly heartbreaking) opening scene

    Song still holds up too.

    This is so going in the 90's thread.

    I love that song, but I was pretty surprised when I heard Patrice Rushen's Forget Me Nots (which it samples) and heard how close they are:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Amzp7W0RkPA

    Like, there's borrowing a hook, and then there's just changing the lyrics...

    Anyway, saw Isle of Dogs. Thought it was entertaining, though less so than many of Wes Anderson's other films.* It also has a fair number of moments of casual brutality, which I guess is one of his trademarks. But there were a lot of small children in my theatre, and while things mostly worked out I think there were a few potentially traumatising moments.

    *(As said in the previous thread people's opinion of his work varies wildly. For a gauge of my tastes, of his movies that I've seen I'd rank them as such: Grand Budapest Hotel, Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Darjeeling Limited, Isle of Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Royal Tenenbaums.)

    So, before last Sunday, I had not seen any of Darren Aronofsky's films.

    I have now seen all of them save for Pi.

    "Things take a turn" was basically the theme for my movie watching this week.

    Also I now know why people hate 'mother!' and I get it but I don't agree with them because that movie was right up my weird weird alley.

    I saw the first hour of Jason Bourne yesterday. It gave me absolutely no interest in watching the second hour, which I was kinda surprised by considering how much I've enjoyed that franchise. The plot felt aggressively dumb (there's a hacktivist group and they namedrop Edward Snowden multiple times in a plot about surveillance and online privacy, while also having real time access to every CRT camera in the entire world) and the action was near-incomprehensible even for a film series that made its name on shaky cam action.

    I wonder if the original Bourne movies still hold up. And if mid-twenties me would have the same reaction to this film.
    That first movie definitely holds up. It's got a tone and a perspective that still feels unique and original. It's a very smart distillation of the kind of paranoid thrillers that the 1970's was full of, but it also moves the formula forward. Plus that chase with the Mini looks fantastic and is now also kind of hilarious since Paul Oakenfold, the most 2003 artist of all time, plays in the background.

    The second movie is pretty good, but it's still fucked up that they put Bryan Cox and Albert Finny in the same movie. That's just mean.

    But, yeah, that fourth movie is just. . . Man is that movie confusingly bad. I mean, fuck-- okay, this is stupid, but it ends in a fist fight in an underground run-off in Las Vegas and, like, dude. VEGAS DOESN'T HAVE BASEMENTS. It has an inadequate sewage system that floods any time it rains. I've literally known that since I was ten, how does the United 93 guy miss that? . . . But that's, like, the tenth lamest thing about it.

    Fuck, now I'm mad. Shit.

    Man, I love Noah. The only thing crazier than the movie itself is the fact that somebody gave Darren Aronofsky a hundred million dollars to make it.

    Plus, the whole back half of the movie involves whether or not the main character is going to merk a baby.

    I haven't seen the movie so I don't know exactly how they portrayed it, but, uh, Vegas is chock full of underground tunnels, actually. Hundreds of miles of them, running under the entire city.

    You should really see Pi if you liked his other stuff.

    My fav of his is The Wrestler though. Sure, it's his most grounded movie, but Rourke is just so fucking good in it.

    I think you're fine either way. The movie keeps a lot of the tone of the book while being different enough in the actual events that it won't spoil either experience.

    Boooo! Boo this person!

    I was surprised by how much I loved Bridge of Spies. It's not the most daring movie in the world, but there's just something deeply compelling about making a drama that centers around a man standing by his principles. Like, I know it's no A Man For All Seasons, but considering how many movies (especially in the Cold War and especially when taken in the context of nowadays, the War on Terror and all) revolve around action, it's really cool to see a movie that's central conflict is whether or not somebody is going to stick to their principles.

    Not that you're wrong or anything, but I found it to be a really cool, really compelling movie (that has way too much over-exposed shots, but whatever). It's an idealistic movie that doesn't come off as sappy or sentimental. It's just a decent movie about a decent person. That's really neat. I'm also a guy with an unironic Norman Rockwell print in my room so, whatever.

    Also, they're spies, dude. They're on a bridge. The fuck you want? DO YOU WANT MY BLOOD? TAKE MY BLOOD

    Hmm. Just saw Annihilation. Long, slow and sadly dumb.
    the effects of the shimmer excuses a lot, but not everything.

    I guess the book gives more reasons for why things happen. But the film has a lot "this happens then this happens" why? Because we need this to happen. Again, the effects of the shimmer accounts for some,
    But it didn't quite stretch far enough for me.
    I liked a lot of it, but not worth my time.
