Wait, hold up... this is haaaaaard. I gotta try this now
Oh yeah. RRR's a shit ton of fun. The story falters a bit in terms of character balance, and, personally, I think Bahubali is a better over-the-top action movie, but it's still great.
I would think it would partly depend on if you like Cyrano the story period. If that person knows what Cyrano is in the first place.
You guys got to watch 13 Lives on Amazon Prime, absolutely spectacular, the true story about the rescue of those 13 kids who we’re trapped in the cave, amazing
Another movie to see is RRR
it's on Netflix, definitely a must see
This is semi-autobiographical at most (pretty sure he never dated Madonna), but who cares? It's Weird Al.
And man, they cast Rainn Wilson as Dr. Demento.
A Gothic detective movie with Christian Bale and a young Edgar Allen Poe? I'll take it.
I’m bummed I didn’t catch this in theaters, and I’m also bummed I didn’t watch it in its native language, but I finally gave RRR a chance on Netflix after Pitch Meeting made a video of it. Such a fun movie. Gotta give more Indian movies a chance, especially those made by that director.
How long until Disney realizes they have the rights to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and tries to reboot it
Tried out Top Gun and it felt empty. Very one dimensional. Then tried out Maverick and it had a little bit more heart than the first one. Leaned in heavy on nostalgia.
Nope was cool. Not a top 5 of the year, but it was decent. Missed opportunities here and there, but I liked the performances.
I was hesitant to watch Black Phone and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Just not something I would rewatch. Weird part is that I love horror manga, but I abhor horror in film. All of my friends love it. I expect it to scare me and it doesn't. To add on to all that, the stories are generally weak.
I used to be a romantic comedy junkie, but the last 5 years have been a drought mostly. I watched Spin Me Round and I question why there aren't a ton more like it. I loved the humor and the concept was so cute to begin with.
Once I finish Shrink Next Door, i'll get to RRR.
Just watched Do Revenge, a generally well-made Netflix film starring Maya Hawke and Camilla Mendes. The first 2/3 of it is a very fun send-up of movies like John Tucker Must Die or Cruel Intentions, but there's a vicious twist late in the movie that's initially excellent but sends the movie careening to recover from. The last quarter involved a lot of hasty, unjustified character development and convenient actions and it's unfortunately apparent how much the writers were struggling to resolve everything. A real shame, since the rest of the movie was pretty good.
Is anyone looking forward to the new Borderlands movie? or do we just assume as a video game movie it will be bad
Uncle Fester is here . . .
This is looking good:
Watched the Weird Al movie. That... kind of sucked.
I went in knowing they were going to mock the standard biopic format but they played it really really straight. Yeah there's a little humor to be had by replacing key words with "accordian" or "polka party" but they overall... just played it too straight. And it's that one joke stretched for two hours.
When your entire premise is "these musical biopics are boring and tedious" and you then... follow that formula EXACTLY you end up with... a boring and tedious movie. They started exaggerating things more very late in the film like saying Michael Jackson ripped Al off, and that he had a torrid affair with Madonna... and the last 10 minutes get really bonkers and dumb because at THAT point they start doing crazy wacky things... but its two hours in and there's just no energy to it by that point... so the whacky is there at the end but not in a good way. Suppodely earlier drafts of this thing were going to involve timetravel and multiverses and... it should have had those things, and introduced them at like the 10 minute mark.
I was just hoping for something closer to UHF. Which was also dumb, but had heart and was super quotable and had something interesting happen every couple minutes.
This was funny as a five minute trailer but that was all it ever should have been if they weren't going to get really crazy with it.
So cute. Robert Downy Jr is making a documentary about his dad, Robert Downey Sr, the filmmaker:
I don't think I've watched any of his movies.
