The Mosquito Coast 8/10

An arrogant, know-it-all inventor (Harrison Ford) with a desire to get away from the "American way of life" decides to uproot his family and start a new community in the South American jungle, whereupon his arrogance turns to tyranny and then madness, which eventually leads to his ruin.

I found it captivating to watch and Ford makes a thoroughly unlikeable individual watchable; Helen Mirren as "mother" is given very little to do.

A good film for those looking for a story, rather than action or suspense.

Godzilla v Kong-7/10

Fun movie with action scenes focused on the monsters instead of people running away from the chaos they’re causing.

Beverly Hills Cop 7/10

I think previously I had only ever seen parts of the sequels, never the original. It was entertaining enough; I think I mostly watched it for Lisa Eilbacher than anything else. I might watch the second film tomorrow.

Heat and Dust 7/10

A Merchant Ivory production, which has two intertwining stories in two timeframes: one set in the 1920s and the other in the 1980s. The 1920s story is about a newly married English woman, Olivia, who joins her husband in India, and eventually has an affair with the local nawab and runs off with him. The 1980s story revolves around the great-niece of Olivia, who is retracing the steps of her great-aunt to find out what became of her.

I could have done without the 1980s story, which I think takes away from the other part of the film and doesn't really add anything. Overall, it is not up there with Howards End and The Remains of the Day, but it is still a solid outing.

Red Sonja 9/10

It's considered as the "other conan the barbarian" film just under a different name for whatever reason. Kalidor is basically Conan without the name title and he does what conan does played by Arnold who plays Conan. Story is fun and enjoyable but just really short film. I noticed Ernie Reyes Jr (Keno from TMNT2). Really cool to see Ernie in such a unique role. I didn't even notice at first but i eventually noticed; really awesome stuff. All I could think of whenever he left the scene ("Later Keno Dude"---hence TMNT 2)

The Mule 7/10
Clint Eastwood holding a film together that doesn't do much; Eastwood's screen presence (even at his old age) makes it watchable and more than it is.

Shutter Island 8/10
I should have seen the ending coming from a mile away, but it snuck past me.

Rambo Day:

Rambo: First Blood Part I 8/10
Rambo: First Blood Part II 7.5/10
Rambo III 7/10

I'd seen the first Rambo film before, but I'd never seen the other original two sequels (at least in their entirety). The first film is the best; the subsequent films up the body count and explosions and not much else, though they are enjoyable to watch. I feel they missed an opportunity to really explore the Rambo character in First Blood Part II, with his return to Vietnam, and the impact of his experiences during the Vietnam War.

I'm not sure if I want to watch Rambo and Rambo: Last Blood; part of me feels I should leave it there.

"Rambo" is worth watching just because of how completely fucking mental it is.
"Last Blood" rapes the franchise to death in front of the handful of remaining fans. It's awful.

I might watch "Rambo" again because it really is a spectacular bloodbath.
It's the most violent film I can think of.

The Island 7/10

Regular Michael Bay fare; watchable and action-packed, though it takes a while to get going and it is probably 30 mins too long.

Scarlet Johansson is at peak hotness as well, which is always worth watching.

Escape from Alcatraz 7.5/10

Prime Clint Eastwood. I don't think there is any music or dialogue for the first 5-10 mins; I feel this is something Hollywood should embrace again: let the imagery set the scene and slowly let the mood soak in, rather than trying to immediately grab people's attention and distract them.

Chaos Walking 7/10

Sci-fi, I think mainly aimed at "young adults," with Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley and an underused Mads Mikkelsen.

I haven't read the books that the film is based upon, so I can't judge it against them, but I found it watchable and it didn't drag. Outside of Marvel, I find Tom Holland to be a largely naff actor, and Daisy Ridley is not much better; but the film did not suffer as a result of them.

Amistad 7/10

It is about 30 mins too long and Spielberg piles on the schmaltz, but it is a decent film. I always get the feeling that Djimon Hounsou should be a bigger star than he is; I assume he just keeps himself low-key.

movies I have watched since last posting in this thread

Judas and the Black Messiah (2021) - 9/10 - Really good and a surprising portrayal of Fred Hampton's true politics. Was wondering if it was going to be "liberal-washed" since it's a major studio movie about a communist, but was surprisingly good

Memories of Murder (2003) - 8/10 - Really good, second best Bong Joon Ho movie I've seen (Parasite)

The Present (2020) - 9/10 - Oscar nominated short film that's on Netflix now about a Palestinian man trying to buy a gift for his wife and dealing with scum Israeli soldiers... Very good...

Bad Trip (2021) - 9/10 - Eric Andre movie. Funny........ Made me laugh more than any other comedy movie in like 10 years maybe. It's a purposefully cliche buddy movie but every scene is a prank on real people

The Departed (2006) - 9/10 - Freaking sweet... idk why I never watched this before

Shutter Island (2010) - 8/10 - Cool...

Heat (1995) - 9/10 - Freaking great... Watched it while working at a video store in like 2002 and didn't like it much then cause I was half paying attention. Glad I rewatched. Love Al Pacino!!! the best...

Seven Samurai (1954) - 8/10 - Rewatched it since I first saw it in like 2002 and liked it way more this time

Scanners (1981) - 3/10 - shitty and insanely boring... like 2 good scenes in the entire movie and the rest is mind-numbingly boring

John Wick (2014) - 6/10 - Whatever... was fine but like a standard action movie... was expecting something different because of how much ppl seem to like it

RoboCop (1987) - 8/10 - Rewatched for the first time since I was a lil kid prob... very good and funny/campy

Starship Troopers (1997) - 6/10 - Fine...

Zodiac (2007) - 7/10 - Good actually... maybe 8/10

Mayor (2020) - 7/10 - Documentary about the mayor of Ramallah, Palestine... pretty good / fine

The Big Short (2015) - 5/10 - Didn't like it... every character was annoying to me

Re-Animator (1985) - 7/10 - Good... Very "over the top" to where it became v funny

Can't Get You Out of My Head (2021) - 7/10 - Adam Curtis documentary... really enjoyed watching it tbh and it's done in a mesmerizing way... politics in it are "pretty good" and it's worth watching but somewhat annoying in parts... he seems like a zionist maybe . . . . .

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) - 6/10 - Some funny parts but felt like a bunch of "liberal bullshit" + not nearly as funny as the other movie and show . . . . don't need Borat telling me to "vote"

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) - 3/10 - rubbish . . . just wanted 2 see them fight . . . too much boring/dumb shit!!!

I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) - 6/10 - Charlie Kaufman movie... feel like I really loved like half of the movie but the other half felt "mind-numbing" and annoying... had a very strange reaction to this movie... so much of it was amazing but feel like so much was also pissing me off... idk... thinking back I kinda wanna rate it higher because I'm mostly remembering the really good parts

Don't want to overhype it... If you like the Eric Andre Show you will like it though

Also don't remember the last really funny comedy movie I watched, so was good to finally see one I liked...

I've never seen his show but so far the film is pretty funny.
I like the escaped convict bit, the guy with the vest was a gift for a hidden camera sketch. He looked so confused.

True, but I still enjoyed the remake. I wouldn't bother with Wrath of the Titans. That one is trash.

The opening scene was the most interesting part. After that it’s pretty meh. Gloriously violent but woefully uninteresting.

Café Society: 7/10


ive never seen a Woody Allen film so i decided to give this a go


its a very fine film. Allen excels in scenario. the plot is compelling and the major story beats are strong. though he falters with intimate dialogue.

the dialogue isnt bad save for a few scenes but those scenes are so critical that their inferioty stands out glaringly.

cinematography is very nice.

score is good.

Eisinberg, doing a Woody Allen impersonation for 90 min, while initially grating, he really won me over.

over all i liked it well enough though i did end up wondering if it would have been better if Allen sold this premise to a better writer and let a studio put another director over it.

Tequila Sunrise 7/10

Crime drama with Mel Gibson, as a possibly reformed drug dealer, and Kurt Russell, as a narcotics cop and Gibson's friend, who is trying to find out whether Gibson is still involved in his old ways whilst at the same time protecting him from a DEA agent that is out to get him. Caught between them is Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays the love interest.

Not much seems to really happen in the film, and is largely driven by the charisma of both Gibson and Russell, which makes it watchable (and Michelle Pfeiffer also makes the film very watchable).

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train - 8/10

I haven't been to a movie theater since New Mutants so I really wanted to go. Since I can watch Mortal Kombat on HBOMax I decided to see Demon Slayer to see what all the talk was about since it's now the highest grossing film in Japan's history. I've never seen the anime before so parts of the story were a little tough for me to figure out - at first - but I understood everything by the end. While I don't think it was better than Spirited Away, the previous box office champ and an amazing film, I did think this was a good movie. Animation was really pretty and fight scenes were intense. Again, not being familiar with the show, but I'd say it was both comedic and dark in tone, changing back and forth between both. I *might* watch the first season of the show on Netflix at some point now since I enjoyed the movie.

Favorite characters were the main villain and the good guy who wears a Boar's head all the time and is a big oaf.
