I was thinking of leaving Mandy until New Year's Eve; usually watch a film or two in the evening to see the new year through.

I'm an hour through Mandy and I think judging by what just happened in the toilet that this thing is about to ante up.

Great stuff. Weird as shit.

The Front Runner - 7/10

It was just ok. I'm not really sure who the intended audience for it is, or what it was trying to say. There was potential for a good film, but it ended up being just ok instead. Story arcs set up (daughter & mistress) that didn't get any payoff.

I think if you're going to present the idea that Gary Hart was a good guy who made a mistake...repeatedly...and often then you should probably spend more time showing Gary being a 'good guy' instead of having other characters say it.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) - 10/10

Oh my gosh, so good. :-) Very beautiful and "haunting" and funny. Usually forget like 95% of 95% of movies I watch after a couple of months but this one will def "stick with me."

(New Coen Brothers movie. Six short segments rather than one "full" movie. It was released on Netflix.)

Triple A, what was your initial thought of the twist at the end? I'll be honest, it took me out of it and I didn't really care much for the film afterwards despite liking everything to that point.

Bohemian Rhapsody - 4/5. Good, enjoyable film. Very historically inaccurate, but I went to see a Hollywood film and not a documantatry.

Mandy - 3.5/4

The words "heavy metal acid revenge thriller" may look like a late 90's attempt at optimising search results on an amateur website, but in the right hands they also form a perfect description of a film which gives back to Grindhouse more than Tarantino could ever dream of.
The plot is perfectly straightforward revenge thriller and ultimately twist-free but the act progression is expertly timed, the transitions are well presented and the climax is hands down the most enjoyable use of Nicolas Cage since Bad Lieutenant nearly a decade ago. The dialogue is sparingly given to anybody other than the chief antagonist(an obvious charicature of Charles Manson).The bad dude's motivations are clear and simple, the path Nic Cage chooses to take in response is the only way in or out of the movie and so you sit and absorb a film which follows a simple formula up to a point and which in it's last 1/3rd it rewards you by allowing Nic Cage to let loose, completely unbound by the director in a finale that can only really be described as fucking spectacular.

There is almost no exposition in the film, just about zero other than the character Carothers who pops up to explain something almost as a favour to the viewer for getting so far without asking for directions.

So overall it is excellent and if you like films that bulldoze through tropes and formulas rather than trying to avoid them, you will like Mandy.
An axe shaped like an axe is Nic Cage's ouroboros and when you see it you too will believe in infinity.

Watching "Eastern Promises" and I am not sure if I can overcome the two major obstacles that present themselves immediately.

1. Naomi Watts doing a middle class English accent.
2. Naomi Watts looking dreadful for some reason.

Also the dialogue is so contrived it's very hard to get into. It seems like the sort of supposedly intelligent dialogue you find in literature everybody has heard of but nobody has actually read. The sort of idealised, forced wistfulness over arbitrary non-issues as the world moves around them. It's the sort of thing that kills on Broadway when adapted from a best selling novelist but bares no relation to the coarse hum drum of real life. Every line out of Watts mouth so far just sounds like an actress trying to fit into a pre-existing, moving landscape.
I have to say it's a stark contrast to the other side of the film where Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel feel far more at home, natural apex predators in a world of fierce creatures.

It's always a shame when an actor thinks they are better than they are and I've always thought that was Naomi Watts' biggest flaw. She isn't much of a personality and unless she has her top off there's no charisma.

The narration is mind blowingly bad to the extent that it drives you back out of the movie that Cassel and Mortensen keep pulling you into. Armin Mueller Stahl keeps drawing me into contemplative thoughts about the nature of an ageing career criminal only for the voice over or Naomi Watts and her dreadful mother to haul me right back to the reality of jarring and painful juxtaposition between the sublime and the dreadful.

Trying to think of a performance where she uses an accent besides generic American that doesn't suck ass. She nearly ruined every scene she was in in St Vincent.
I think I went off her when she walked out on Simon Mayo during her promo for that film Diana but I only heard the clip a year or two ago...

I was about to add that there was a complete lack of face melting violence in this Cronenberg picture but then some face melting violence happened and put paid to that idea. Still, when the master finally decides to show his most popular party trick, he does not disappoint. The blood flows quickly and impactfully in a pleasingly kinetic yet realistically sloppy style. This is sort of like watching trained martial artists fight in oil. It's not the grim, graphic but unavoidably cool violence of A History Of Violence, it's actually more like how that choreography should have been done. There's no luck involved, just hard earned honest bloodshed.

I am conflicted by the brilliance of 50% of this film and the infuriatingly abject remainder.

Just watched this. I generally agree with Trips. Movies like this terrify me because everything is so out of control but looks so close to real life. Another example would be Brazil. Just gives me this terrible feeling that everything is fucked and there's nothing to be done. So, other than furthering my current state of existential crisis,

Tried to watch the puppet movie with Melissa McCarthy (Rosie O' Donell 2.0) and I couldn't. The start of the movie seemed like it could be decent but it went to shit pretty quick and somehow kept getting worse.

I'm not a huge Gilliam fan but to remake his most appreciated work would take foolhardy lack of awareness. Only a glutton for punishment would dare.

Creed II - 8/10 maybe. I wasn't thinking that high to begin with, probably not even in the middle of the movie, but then it "picked up" and I actually want to see more of the Drago family's story now.....

Mandy visually was similar to Only God Forgives and The Cell... I'd like to see more films committing to a colour scheme. The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover is a fine example of a colour scheme shifting with the mood of a film.

Crimes of Grindelwald - 8/10

I really liked it. It wouldn't make any sense to someone who hasn't seen the first film and maybe a HP film or two. It's definitely a middle-quel, but it sets up lots of things for future films and the twists were rather unexpected. Also, possibly the most visually impressive of all Potterverse films, which is quite an accomplishment.

Sicario 2 Soldado - 3/4

Everybody says it's not as good as the first film and I'd agree. It has less of a focused plot and a lack of characters to relate to, it's guilty of using action sequences too often despite them being very well done and ultimately it becomes slightly predictable. I guessed the ending a mile off but I will avoid spoiling it for those that have yet to see it. With that said the action is still hard and violent and although not as polished or as well placed and paced as the original you can tell it's written by Taylor Sheridan because the characters feel exactly the same. The only downside is the complete lack of Blunt whom you vicariously live through in the first Sicario.
Ultimately I enjoyed it a lot more than some sequels and at least the two leads stayed as committed to their parts as they were in the first film.

Escape Plan 2 was actually good. The score was one long, perfect John Carpenter impression and I loved it. The plot was completely predictable, the acting more restrained than camp but they made up for it with copious one-liners that had to be written by children for a competition.
I don't know why a critic would review it so badly, it's more fun than the original and it's basically a sci-fi film that embraces cliches and macho stereotypes.
It's ham and cheese and I can always go for that.

For all of it's failings as a comic adaptation and as a piece of entertainment in general, 2004's "Punisher" movie has one of the most entertainingly choreographed fight scenes in it. A fight scene with Kevin Nash.
It's not exactly The RAID 2 but it has kept me watching Punisher any time it's on TV for the last fourteen years.

Ralph Breaks the Internet-8/10

Can't say if it's better or not than that first film as they went a completely different direction. Lots of focus on one's purpose in life and wanting more and another's inability to let go and being self destructive emotionally. It's funny, the internet gags are great, that Disney princesses scenes are hilarious and the focus on the characters and not the gags made it a fun for me and my little one.
