    Tonight I watched David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method.

    Keira Knightley does some high quality, Capital A, acting in that film.

    The only real "youtube show on movies" thing I like is Re:View. Especially when they break new info on old classics I didn't know.

    I've got time for Movies With Mikey, if only because he finds new ways for me to appreciate movies I already like.

    I watched The Babysitter: Killer Queen last night. I didn't catch any of the actual discussion here except a comment or two implying it was bad. It is bad!

    So:
    First off, making the girl from the first one evil sucked, just all around. And they didn't even...like, bother to attempt even a little depth with it. She was just completely 2-dimensionally evil. I suspected it as soon as she made the comment about Cole being special because he's innocent and was very disappointed to be right.

    On the flip side of that...Bea's redemption felt pretty unearned. I didn't hate it because I'm a sucker for that kind of thing, but the whole Bea/Phoebe connection was super contrived and thrown into the movie with lazy exposition right at the end. The "You changed me" to Cole was a genuinely nice beat but that's about it.

    Speaking of Bea/Phoebe...so...can I make sure I'm understanding this right? Bea's entire plan hinged on Phoebe and Cole having sex? As in, it relied on Phoebe going to the lake, running into Cole and the cult, escaping with Cole, not getting murdered several times over, being alone with Cole long enough to have sex, and then both of them actually wanting to do it?

    Oh and also she swore to always protect Phoebe? So she did that by...sending her straight into a bloodbath where a group of psychopaths will attempt to brutally murder her a whole bunch, on the off chance that she'll bone this dude.
    Do I have all that right?

    Improper disposal of a body is not a crime punishable by death

    Hell, that shit's typically a misdemeanor

    I mean she gets a little slack from me being that she was alone without backup, he was a large man, he'd thrown the log at her, and he was running in a partially occupied area and if he'd escaped, could have easily hurt other people. And she didn't know how stable the frozen lake was so it would dangerous for her to pursue, even had she not been 6-7 months pregnant.

    It still feels weird that she takes shots at him, but it's a far cry from a guy minding his own business trying to get his wallet out of his pocket.

  • KalTorakKalTorak One way or another, they all end up in the Undercity.Registered User regular
    The copaganda of that scene comes mostly from how it reinforces the "just shoot 'em in the leg!" mindset which works fine in fiction but is stupid and dangerous in real life.

    yesterday i somehow found a way to watch the movie i hate the most this year (i'm thinking of ending things) and the movie i most loved (the invisible man) pretty much back to back.

    my big takeaway on the first is that charlie kauffman should not be allowed to direct anything because he is somehow simultaneously impossibly self-indulgent, yet infuriatingly callow when it comes to pulling the trigger on bringing everything together and making it mean something more. it makes so much sense after the fact that spike jonze and michele gondry, seasoned music viceo directors, were able to shape his big pile of too much everything into workable movies now.

    and that cowardice to make a point dovetailed nicely into the invisible man, which is at its heart a showcase for elisabeth moss to show off just how good of an actor she is, but is also just so fucking confident in itself. it keeps going further and further beyond where you'd expect it to; giving you so much more than you'd ever expect. i even messaged @poorochondriac about this; the mid-point pivot in this film would have been the springboard for the last twenty minutes of a lesser movie.

    and that's not even getting into just how well it played with ptsd, gaslighting, and how a support network can fail you post-crisis.

    i can't stop thinking about it.

    at the risk of derailing things into a very non-movie discussion, shooting a fleeing felon who poses a threat to those around them has basically always been considered legally justified, even if they're not actively attempting to harm the officer. Shooting a suspected murderer to prevent him from fleeing the scene of his latest murder is legally considered to be a worthwhile trade-off to the rights of the murderer, as it also protects the community's right to not get thrown into a woodchipper.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    They danced around it but they never came out and said

    I don't think they needed to come out and say it, right?
    What with the suffragette bombings and everything? Plus the reform bill that Enola ended up passing?

    I think it was pretty much there on front street.

    Fargo exclusively from Marge's perspective is an interesting thing. She has a relatively nice day while investigating a crime, has an exciting incident with a guy and a wood chipper, arrests him then goes home.

    There's an editing job in there.

    Yeah my suspicion is that
    Had the reform bill not passed, the more violent plan that Mom was planning would have gone into motion

    I want a cut of Fargo that's just from Mr. Mohra's perspective, the street-sweeping bartender guy.

    "...so then Mrs. Mohra heard about the homicides down there last week, and she thought I should call it in, so... I called it in. End o' story."

    The end.

    I thought the opening fight of The One was a pretty cool way to use bullet-time to demonstrate superspeed, and I was disappointed that it never showed up again.

    Back when The One released, my friends and I had discussed to death what a Dragonball Z live action movie should be like. I always thought it would be great to have the fights be at normal speed (obviously fast-paced martial arts), while the real world stuff around them was in slow motion. Then you could cut back and forth with the normal people reacting to crazy shit going on super fast around them. Along comes The One. I was fully convinced that whoever had directed it should be the one to direct DBZ.

    He did.

    Oops.

    The greatest scene (sequence?) in cable television is when Joe Pera hears "Baba O'Reilly" for the first time ever.

    The greatest scene in broadcast television is in NBC's "The Odyssey" starring Armand Assante, when Odysseus shoots through the axes and reveals his identity, and he and his son slaughter all the suitors in a bloody mess.

    "Telemachus... now is the right time for your anger."
