  • One of the greatest films ever made...

  • Catbus FTW.

  • There's as much happening in My Neighbour Totoro as there is in Die Hard. The perspective is different.

    If you want Japanese films where really not much happens, try Ozu.

  • It wasn't a complaint, I loved the whole experience.

  • On a similar but different note, we watched 'How to Train Your Dragon'. Made me smile.

    Reminds me to re watch kung fu panda and rango.

  • Went to see the Lighthouse last night - fantastic. If you liked the Witch then you'll probably love this and my friend who thought the Witch was a bit meh also enjoyed the film last night.

    The only slightly annoying thing was that as we were entering the entire audience from the 6pm preview screening of Parasite came out doing the whole spoiler thing.

  • Just read up on this. Going to give it a go.

  • I specifically avoid telling people who are yet to see Midsommar that it's like the Wicker Man, mostly because it's true.

  • Fail.
    I've not seen Midsommar yet.
    Love Nic Cage in Wikan Man tho

  • Also seen Lighthouse in cinema today (luckily in my hometown for holiday, so seen it with Czech subtitles).

    Reached my expectations and loved every single second of the movie.
    Everything about it.

    Gonna rewatch whenever first I can.

  • So I watched Dark Waters last night...
    Great film, and the story is just crazy. The amount of damage they knew they were doing, but completely swept under the carpet. The impact that choice has made to the entire planet... Just insane.
    Massive respect for Rob Bilott to put the amount of work and passion that he did into uncovering the truth and holding them accountable.

  • Parasite really is great fun

  • Another big ol yes for the Lighthouse. Such a perfect expression of everything I love about cinema. The aspect ratio choice is great too, really locks you in to every little detail. I can't wait to see where Eggers goes next, the mastery of atmosphere and writing I think is unparalleled at the moment

  • Just came here to say Once upon a time in Hollywood and The Irishman both too long, boring, self indulgent and shit

    Walked out of the Irishman to have a pint and came back half hour later, couldn't believe it was still chuntering on

  • ^ yes!

  • Finally got round to watching 1917 on Sunday. A lot of mixed reviews had lowered my expectations enough for me to really enjoy it. Thought the single shot would wear thin but it worked and i thought all the cinematic trimmings added to the film rather than detracted from the story.

    Also...

    Booksmart, an adults wet dream about how cool and woke kids are these days. Saying that, once i got past the relentless soundtrack and extreme privilege there was a lot to enjoy. Strong lead performances and a refreshing take on a story told too many times already.

    Dragged across concrete, crap, but my kind of crap. Gibson and Vaughn proving they have more than enough charisma to carry a dodgy plot.

    If Beale St could talk, love Regina King but hate films that remind me of perfume adverts. Gave up after 20 minutes, if anyone has seen it let me know if i should give it another go.

    And not sure if it's on Netflix yet but Princess Mononoke is a phenomenal film.

    March 1st...

    Felt the same, but it's well worth watching til the end

  • Princess Mononoke

    The Ghibli one? Eh?

  • All studio Ghibli films will be on netflix by the beginning of April.

    Already 6 on there...

    Next load on March 1st.

  • ah right see, ta

  • 1917; why all the talk of a 'single shot' when there are edit points all over the place and even one moment where the screen fades entirely to black? That said, it's very clever, technically. But the dialogue is woeful, every scene involving a senior officer is a cliche and what started out as a persuasive depiction of the horror of the trenches drifts off in to bog standard adventure peril that would sit easily in a 007 film. As would all the men with guns chasing the hero who conveniently can't shoot for toffee.
    Feeling the need to slather everything in sentiment and cinema with a capital C is more of an insult to the soldiers than a tribute.

  • Yeah definitely felt all that too. Didn't expect anything different TBH

  • British film industry seems to have been pandering to UKIP-style patriotic sentiment for some years now.

  • Finally got round to watching this last night. Enjoyed it a lot! It was no Twilight but not bad.
