Jeff Bridges double feature. Hell or High Water and The Little Prince - 7.5/10

Both quite good for different reasons, it's a shame neither saw a wider theatrical release.

The animation for TLP was stunning at times, but while the story was good, I felt it needed a tighter focus.


Edit - Just looked it up, and appears HOHW got a decent sized release, somehow it flew below my radar and I never heard of it until its video release.

I just finished it today. The green screen was definitely a style choice in this case. Not from lack of budget. I personally didn't mind it, it reminded me of The Grand Budapest Hotel. I could see how it may offset some peope though.

Silence 6.5/10 based on the 1966 novel by Shusaku Endo.. interesting story about christian faith and Jesuit's in Japan in the 1600's.Some very good acting but this film is too long.Not as brutal or as good as The Mission from 1986 about Jesuit's in the Amazon.

Completely separate. But you have to go into this one with a clean slate.
Don't expect any relation to the first movie because there is none.

This movie has it's issues, but I think a big problem is that they used the name "Cloverfield" in it's title, and naturally, people will look for how it relates to the story of the first movie.

It probably wouldn't have gotten made without "Cloverfield" being in the title, unfortunately.

The Accountant: 6/10

Good performances, good cinematography and all that but... twas predictable and kinda boring. I was expecting more. As far as recent action flicks go, John Wick remains the best. I get that this flick was leaning more towards the drama side, but eh. The worldbuilding was minimal (compared to John Wick, with the underground assassin hotel), the flashbacks were too short to really invest in the protagonist, and the secondary characters were bland. Good performances considering the material, but still, pretty bland.

I thought it was a good movie, but that was the issue I had with it as well. It's a cool concept, but how does learning a language give you time manipulation abilities?

Blade Runner (the Final Cut): 8/10

Every few years I watch this one again, and it's a funny movie that has a different kind of effect on me every time I see it. In terms of the visuals, the effects, character design, and the universe that is created, you can't hardly top it. Same could be said for the way that the story develops, and for the way that the behaviors and personality characteristics of characters are explored. Two of the most effective films I've ever seen at creating mood--The Thing and Blade Runner--both came out in the same summer of '82. I also love the ambiguous ending, and the fact that there are no simple solutions to be found, and that the future is portrayed as a believably overpopulated, grungy, corporate dystopia. But there is a cold, intellectual approach to the film-making that keeps the audience at arms length from becoming really emotionally invested like you can be with other films. Sometimes that's more appealing to me than it is at others, but it is something that keeps it from reaching that top rung of films, like Alien for example, that provides this on top of doing everything else so well.

I am extremely curious to see what the sequel brings--good, bad, or other.

Although i have seen the teaser for Blade Runner 2049, it came on as a trailer for xXx, after seeing it on the theater I was crying like a *****, it was emotional, the soundtrack for that shot teaser sound way better than I could Imagine, i felt that future in that short amount of time. To me Blade Runner is my favorite sci-fi movie of all time behind Dark City. What gets me its the oriental influenced future, LA Is culturally diverse in it the movie and what makes this over the top is the soundtrack to make you feel digested in it. Vangelis did an outstanding job making you feel the future.

I am not having any expectations and I am sad its not based on the actual sequel of Blade Runner 2: Edge of human for now, but i cant honestly decide if I like the Directors cut or the final Cut of this movie.

I watched a month or so ago, and yeah, he's absolutely despicable in it. Just vile. It's what Red Skull should be in an R-Rated WW2 Cap film. Agreed on the uniforms as well. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Say what you will about the Nazis (and there a whole lot of things to say), but they had top-notch fashion sense. It's just shame such a style will never come back, because, well, Nazis.

For the last 10 or so years he's had these really cheesy twists in a lot of his movies. I completely expected to be let down. This is nothing like that. I had goose bumps after. It's such a big ending that it will definitely be all over the internet next week.

If you're a fan of his early work this is a much watch, before you get spoiled.

Pretty nice looking movie and it aged well, but holy **** was Arnie a huge miscast, I suppose there was no one else to play Conan, but Arnie sure ain't Conan, no agility of a panther, no quick wit, which was a waste because Arnie is charismatic, but in this? Conan is a dumb brute and mostly a nodding mute, not only that, Arnie's too aryan looking to play Conan :lol I haven't seen Momoa's movie either, but I have a hunch if it was Momoa in this movie, movie would've been better, at least Momoa looks like Conan more.

I would've ignored all that if the movie was a bit better though, in the script department.

I suppose it was a nice amalgam of various stories told serviceably at best, since I think it failed to capture that Hyborian age mystique that Robert E. Howard describes so well, I did appreciate that Belit moment in the final battle, I kept thinking how the girl kinda reminded me of her :lol and this scene at the beginning and the outro, among others, like I said, it is a nice looking movie. And the music was fantastic.

Momoa does look more like Conan, and there's more blood and gore, but... the rest is painfully cheesy, boring and just... bland. I saw it once in the theater, once on tv, and it was actually playing yesterday (I wasn't really looking at it though, as I had my Physics Final today).

Let's hope his Aquaman is good enough that one is willing to overlook that, unlike Arnie's Conan.

I was talking about...his body :lol

Actually, I read an interview he did with a fitness magazine where he talks about his body and workouts for several of his films.

In the first Conan he was very bulky with no muscle definition because the director felt that a real barbarian wouldn't spend time working out and getting muscle definition. He wanted a more natural look, so Arnold gained weight and mass and "he let himself go to 12% body fat" ...as if that was bad :lol

In the second Conan for whatever reason, he was leaner and had a lot more definition, hence why I say he was in better shape. Not bigger, just more athletic and in better overall shape.

Black Mass. 9/10. Just great. Well-acted. Solid story. Kinda like The Departed ... but truer.

The Master. 5/10. Somebody recommended this as a semi-bio of complete weirdo L. Ron Hubbard. It's not horrific. Hoffman was pretty good. But, too much of it follows around Joaquin Phoenix playing an uncomfortably degenerate moron. He wasn't even the kind of degenerate that's fun to watch (like most of the characters in Black Mass, above) ... but the kind of disgusting pervert that makes your skin crawl. Not sure how close this is to Hubbard's start of the Scientology hoax, but it really wasn't worth the time. An actual bio of Hubbard would be entertaining as hell, though ... provided the Scientologists don't burn the studio to the ground. That guy was a loon.

Seven Five. 9/10. Documentary about a corrupt police precinct in Brooklyn in the 70s. Had interviews with the actual criminals, which was something. Enlightening. Entertaining. They ought to make a movie.

I absolutely love Conan the Barbarian.

If you mean the 1982 version, so do I:

Conan the Barbarian (1982): 8/10

Conan the Destroyer (1984): 5/10

The first one for me I love for a few reasons. The musical score of Basil Poledouris being a big one. Crafting a composition that really does feel as if it had been made from a time that predates Recorded History. Indeed, that soundtrack does a fantastic job of reeling me in, and keeping me invested in this movie.

James Earl Jones (who along with Max Von Syndow was one of the few chosen for acting ability over athletic capability) pretty much nailed it as the Cult Leader Thulsa Doom for me. The whole becoming a Snake thing working for me as it not only gave him a means of escape, but served to highlight how little value he placed on his followers, having left the Princess Yasimina where she lay despite her worth (as a means of securing her father's throne) to him with barely a look while he was readying himself for said escape.

Arnie's accent was an issue, hence why this Conan was a man of few words (with even those few lines requiring intensive voice coaching plus extra help from JEJ), but his athletic ability made him work in the role as it was designed. In fact, he was required to Tone Down during training, as his muscles were said to be keeping him from wielding his sword properly.

The setting I recall made keeping the fantasy elements low-key (for the most part), which for me is one reason why it's aged pretty well over the years.


CtD on the other hand, despite having a bigger budget, feels as if it had been made for half the money.

Khev
01-24-2017, 11:44 AM
If you mean the 1982 version, so do I:

Yep. The unbelievable score, costumes, sets, and location shooting make it a timeless film that will never feel dated, ever. Valeria is the weak link acting wise but as you mention JEJ and Sydow more than make up for her.

But his athletic ability made him work in the role as it was designed. In fact, he was required to Tone Down during training, as his muscles were said to be keeping him from wielding his sword properly.
This is the only thing I disagree with, there was absolutely no athletic ability from Arnie, none at all, he looked awkward, clumsy and slow, the farthest thing from the cat-like poetic flow Conan is supposed to have, but I don't fault Arnie, I don't expect any more from a body builder whose only physical skill is to lift with proper technique, but not to put those muscles to other uses, that's why body builders look funny even when they run.

Still the combat managed to be quite good, I credit that to the choreographer, director and editor, that despite Arnie's clumsiness the action managed to be somewhat exciting.

I don't know how bad Momoa's Conan movie is, I will see it soon, but I have seen a few scenes of him wielding a sword in the movie and THAT is athleticism, he really moved like a natural and skilled warrior/swordsman.

https://68.media.tumblr.com/44b0c1f6f355c32a28cf2fd8bfc464ef/tumblr_ogynoiePRh1ta0sgeo1_500.gif

Arnie gets a pass in this movie for being Arnie, the movie is good, and I don't fault the makers for having cast him, since he was probably the only one at the time to cast for the role, but his role in the movie aged badly to the point of being one of the weaknesses of the movie.

Is it really so hard to get Conan and the Hyborian age right without turning it into a generic fantasy try-hard knock off? Even the 1982 movie had a nice pulpy Sword and Sorcery feel, this was just dry and dull.

I'm thinking Conan would work better as a Netflix anthology series, unrelated short stories, with no overarching plot, no muh father revenge nonsense, just a barbarian wandering through the ancient supercontinent, only character moments, action and mystery, and try to emulate the aesthetic of Frazetta's covers.

Just one reason I didn't like this Conan at all. It could be argued that these types of movies, are only as strong as the villains cast in them. And if you look at the three Conan Movies made, there is some evidence to support this.

1982: Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) - Compelling Villain. Phenomenal Acting. Conan has a Direct, Clear Reason for wishing Ill on him. Can compel his own followers (which must number in the thousands) to commit suicide with little more than a few gentle words of persuasion. Almost succeeds in killing Conan and does kill Valeria.

1984: Queen Taramis. Generic Villain for a generic movie.

2011: Umm........who was the villain again...?



Is it really so hard to get Conan and the Hyborian age right without turning it into a generic fantasy try-hard knock off? Even the 1982 movie had a nice pulpy Sword and Sorcery feel, this was just dry and dull.

It would appear to be the case. It might be that they're trying too hard to expand the audience appeal, but in doing so, they not only fail to bring any new viewers in, but put off the existing fans. This could well be why the 2011 CtB Bombed at the Box Office, failing to even make what it cost.



I'm thinking Conan would work better as a Netflix anthology series, unrelated short stories, with no overarching plot, no muh father revenge nonsense, just a barbarian wandering through the ancient supercontinent, only character moments, action and mystery, and try to emulate the aesthetic of Frazetta's covers.

Not a bad idea. Movies tend to require a clear plot that can be covered over their duration to work (hence "You Killed my Mother! You Killed my Father! You Butchered my People! You took my Father's Sword, AGH!")

As an anthology, you get a lot more time to explore the world, see how it's made, how the people live there. And once a story is concluded, you can move right to the next one.

Actually, this is something I think I'd like to see. :)

Well, Conan himself should be a mesmerizing character, in fact he's always more interesting than his villains, he is the sole focus of the stories, man at his most raw, yet more cunning and sense than civilized men.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. 8/10. As chick flicks go ... top notch. I have a theory that the best romantic comedies are the ones that cast a guy's-guy in the male lead. Men can relate to McConaughey. Or Mel Gibson. Or Gerard Butler. Not Hugh Grant or Ryan Gosling.

Ghostbroads. Good Lord/10. My hostility was not misplaced. I refused to pay to see this thing ... but watched most of it on Starz last night. Not a funny line in this whole travesty. Bad director. Bad casting. Bad script. Bad story. Bad jokes. Just lousy from top-to-bottom. Zero redeeming qualities.

Enchanted. 8/10. Watched it with my daughter. Shockingly good. Clever. Entertaining. Not annoying. Worth a watch.

Looks like it was a chick-flick week or two for me. Never let it be said that I didn't do the least I could do.

Looper 8/10.

I was sick first time I saw this, and fel asleep...more from the cold med's than anything else. Stayed up to watch it all the way though.

What a great flick......some issues with continuity , which is inevitable with time travel.....but really well done...

Feels like Blade Runner at times, and Inception at others....

Split (2017) - 7.5/10

A return to form of sorts for M. Night Shyamalan but I was let down by certain elements of the ending. Very riveting throughout though. Not quite on the level of last year's thrillers The VVitch, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and The Shallows but I'd still recommend it. James McAvoy and Anya Taylor Joy were great.

Figured..

Don't get me wrong, it wasa nice flick, and a great departure from the usual sci-fi plots, but it just wasn't all that grant as they made it out to be. I may have some problems with Interstellar, but at least that was an experience worthy of all the hype. Arrival was good, but ultimately a tad silly and not the second coming of sci-fi flicks. A bit more could've been done with the concept, and the "twist" could've been a tad different and more well-defined.

Moonlight 6.5/10 for the film it was.10/10 for the film it could have been.. great content but too afraid to really get into the real story of the main characters Homosexuality so feels incomplete.

Up for Best Picture shouldn't be.Mahershala Ali up for best supporting actor shouldn't be..only in first 3rd of film he was good but nothing special.Naomie Harris up for best supporting actress "Yes" very dynamic memorable performance.

Shout out to Janelle Monae loved seeing her Band about 8 years ago she's becoming an actress to watch.Alex Hibbert and Ashton Sanders both excellent as Little and Cheron.

There was one good Ezri centered episode. Other than that she was a terrible character. Everyone became horny and wanted her, Worf than had sex with her, then they broke, then she and Bashir are in love... I mean, you kill awesome and cool Jadzia only to ruin everyone's memory of her with this dull whore.

Dukat was wasted. The "Emissary of the Pah-wraiths" storyline was boring and generic. The part where he was possing as Bajoran was absurd. There was no mention of Ziyal or his craziness, which is stupid considerin' that they were the starting point of the whole thing.

As George Lucas once said "A special effect without a story is a pretty boring thing." And the same can be said with regard to the other elements listed above. Sure Drive has those things in spades, and presents them very well, but like Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut before it ultimately falls flat without a more captivating story and characters.

Good movie. I appreciated the simplicity of the story - especially since I've caught the GoT fever and started binge-watching all the seasons - but at times the scenes felt like the actors were caught in molasses. Long pauses in dialogue coupled with slow head movements for added effect only works for so many times; it shouldn't be used for the whole movie! Samuel Jackson's character salvaged my interest for this movie.

Lost in Space (1998) - 5.5/10

I totally forgot that this movie had a "bullet time" scene (when they engage the warp drive) a full year before The Matrix. Some of the effects still hold up today, others (like the little monkey guy) are just atrocious. It's clear that (like The Fifth Element) they were trying to steal the thunder from the imminent return of Star Wars but were only able to succeed in making a marginal "Sunday afternoon" movie.

The Graduate (1967) - 7.5/10

Weird to watch this film and realize that I'm 6 years older than the cougar in the movie. Though I know that the 36 year old Bancroft was supposed to be playing a woman in her 40's. Very watchable from beginning to end, though Hoffman's Benjamin did come across quite creepy by the end of the film.

Its lost something over the years......very much a story about nothing.....like its a bunch a good scenes stitched together...even Jokers story arc is kinda predictable.

Love the Parris Island stuff.....

You could very well do that since they are great stories, but the novels on which Kubrick based his movies that I've read, are all better than the movie version.

His cinematography tells a story of its own though. Take Eyes Wide Shut for instance, that one got him killed for exposing the secrets of the reptilian elite, it's so obvious.

His best work was obviously the moon landing.











I'm kidding he he......... Or am I?

Eh, I'd rate the whole thing 10/10.
There's not enough films with just two acts.
The second one is great exactly because of how different it is, plus the finale is provocative.
