Re: IT: Chapter Two (2019)

Aww, man. I really wanted this to be better than it was. It wasn't really scary. I kinda knew that it couldn't be based on the first one, which wasn't very scary either, but I think I was still hoping it would be scarier. I also think it could have been edited a bit tighter. It was a little rambly a...

Re: Let's talk about...[Insert film/person]

Since Glass hits soon... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODoe7X5Fgik 🕷 First of all, this could be a bit lengthy from my side, so bear with me :D To me the video itself was really cheesy and pretentious. It's effective, so I'm not trying to discredit whoever made it (I'm not familiar with this YouTu...

Re: Lady and the Tramp (2019)

I really wish they would stop this "live action" reanimated crap. It's terrible. Looks like National Geographic with dubbing.

Re: The Farewell (2019)

I think I really liked the lingering shots because it ties into the whole theme of time and how much we need to cherish our time with our loved ones. I also loved the way the shots were composed. It is a gorgeous looking film. I can see that. I think it just made me uncomfortable because it did for...

Re: The Farewell (2019)

This was so good. I ended up bawling a few times. I love the way they wove in humor with the poignancy of facing death of a loved one. The ending completely surprised me too, in all the best ways. Awkwafina really stood out here. So did the guy who played the older brother who moved to Japan. Fantas...

The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0FnJDhY9-0 This was an interesting movie. A lot of great commentary about the boxes we put ourselves into and the boxes we create for others, especially around race, family, and masculinity. Had some great symbolism and discussion about gentrification and property ri...

Luce (2019)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5xPoINucr8 Loved it! One of the best of the year,IMO. It challenges the audience in a way that I think many will find uncomfortable. You can tell it's based on a play. Really,makes some,powerful statements about white saviors, black respectability, and stereotyping. ...

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

It was OK. There were some truly funny and brilliant moments, but as usual with QT, I had trouble sinking into the story because QT always makes you painfully aware that you are watching a movie. He never allows the viewer to just lose themselves in the story because he wants you to remember he's ma...

Re: Docu-fucking-mentaries: The Thread

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8sUwXTWb4M Just saw this. Toni Morrison's The Pieces I am. It was pretty good. Toni Morrison has no humility though LOL. Which was kinda refreshing. The documentary explains why she probably shouldn't have any considering how her work was regarded when she first came...
