    i kind of quickly read up on the characters in the plot and this one looks like it might be at least even kind of reflective of history? Washington is playing a real guy at least.

    Ok whew! We are getting Longlegs at my theater next week.

    Still seems odd we didn’t get Maxxxine.

    I do appreciate Pedro's commitment to just rocking that same mustache no matter what he's in lately.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Hopefully they leave Baron Munchausen alone though. That movie is perfect

    I don't think The Last Duel was slept on so much as avoided due to subject matter and presentation thereof

    Half of that film's marketing should have been showing everyone what Ben Affleck looked like in it.

    This is definitely true for a portion of the audience but there was also very much a vibe of "this looks kind of boring and Matt Damon looks dumb as hell" among audience goers even without knowing the details of the plot

    I’m watching the Legend of Lake Hollow

    Movie isn’t great but they just randomly introduced Native American magical shit and the monster is a Wendigo.

    100% unnecessary. Could have easily made the exact same movie without any of it.

    the last duel was not a very good movie and the fucked up weird anachronisms and poor messaging were real bad from a historical perspective

    Oh yeah also if you have Shudder and want a big feel-bad time, new "amazing folk horror of the year" dropped: The Devil's Bath. Based on a true story and real court records of 18th century suicide by proxy in Austria; accounts exist of depressed religious women (and occasional men) who contemplated suicide but couldn't/wouldn't go through with it out of the fear they wouldn't get to Heaven after, so they'd "go the long way about it" effectively, they'd kill a child and immediately turn themselves in for it, and the priest before their public execution would absolve them of their sins at confession. Agnes is one woman going toward that path, after having married young but having her desires from the marriage be unfulfilled, her husband neglecting, her work unsatisfying and the only other regular person in her life (her husband's mom) openly resentful of her being around
    Much like how Midsommar had the most accurate depiction of how my first panic attack felt, The Devil's Bath had the most accurate depiction of how depressive episodes looked for me during two significant life-developments (one of which, funnily enough, was that first panic attack)

    I don't ever think I'm gonna forget that confession scene that's 99% focused on Agnes' face

    Horrible and fascinating equally, just a whole old-times horror film that under the surface is about making do with what you have, while also authentically referencing a lot of real and folkloric shit from that era, including brief glimpses of
    grave-robbing, blood-drinking, kid-killing, and a closeted-queer relationship

    Haven't been able to get this out of my mind since seeing it during the holiday weekend. Wanted/needed? to give my thoughts on it and a recommendation, if the subject matter isn't an immediate turn off (completely understandable if so!), before this Thursday, when I double-feature Maxxxine and Longlegs and likely have to rewrite my entire best of the year list from scratch and forget at least 12 things that released in the process

    The no subtitles on extras bit is unfortunate for Godzilla Minus One... I wonder if the eventual regular English release will have those translated.

    I would bet they’ll just be omitted entirely.

    I think a lot about how All Star being in Shrek was a parody of just how overused it had been in prior movies through 1999-2001

    But now that opening montage of Shrek has outlived most to all cultural memory of its prior use in Mystery Men, Rat Race, Rugrats in Paris, or Digimon: The Movie (which, to be fair, Shrek straight up does it best)

    The last duel was interesting with a fun unreliable narrator perspective that you don’t see often with movies at that budget.

    But it was also a bit dour and boring.

    The Last Duel was amusing to me because of how the changing perspectives went "This guy sucks" "Oh here's another perspective maybe we'll see why wait no this guy really sucks" "Okay what's this guy's deal actually gonna be oh they both suck everybody sucks"

    The Last Duel had some major flaws, but that scene with the priest openly lamenting that all congregations are full of lying liars who lie about priests sexually assaulting children was pretty on point.

    The last two nights my partner and I have started watching the Underworld series. Last night we finished Underworld Evolution.

    These films... These films are dumb and full of leather and so unbelievably blue.

    And Scott Speedman is just a blackhole of charisma within them.

    Scott Speedman saves his charisma for important things like Felicity and Grey’s Anatomy.
