Police Academy 6/10

I've seen all the bad sequels at some point, but never the original film. I'm not quite sure how this film managed to spawn an entire series. Kim Cattrall was ridiculously cute in the 80s, though.

Todos Los Saben-8/10

Everybody Knows on Netflix. Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz star. A small scale crime thriller where a kidnapping takes place in the middle of a wedding reception in a small village in Spain. Some family secrets and true feelings spill, a family's loyalty to itself is challenged, and a sense of revenge is had.

Scoob-5/10

Meh. Mediocre animation, mediocre writing, and a mediocre story starring a smorgasbord of Hannah-Barbera characters to flank and fill passable but forgettable Scooby Doo movie that might get a few chuckles out of you.

Watching "The Platform".
How the Hell does this pile of crap have a decent rating?

The acting is atrocious.
The plot is already razor thin and the development is infuriatingly mundane.

Repetition might be a form of comedy, but it makes for extremely lazy dialogue.
It's also guilty of shoe horning in a very dreary and childish political ideology which is likely the root cause of its rating.
A damning indictment of any critic would be any acknowledgement of this as a positive in their review.

It was Communist propaganda dressed up as a parody of Communist propaganda.

I'm currently watching Uncut Gems.
Very early on it sets up a lot of connected situations to be anxious about as the film progresses.
I don't gamble and I don't trust people with my money so this film is torturous.

I am enjoying the performances, I just can't see any way it ends happily.

Actually I drank 2 tall cans of Relentless energy drink and nearly had a fucking panic attack. That isn't a joke.
That film is a painful exercise in the unparalleled pace of the highs and lows of high roller gambling addiction.

I saw a Mark Kermode review that said it invoked Bad Lieutenant the old Abel Ferrara film and I would agree if not for the fact that the newer Bad Lieutenant is actually more frenetic and a better example of addiction as a whole.

Uncut Gems was an incredible film though, one I will not forget anytime soon. No matter who says what, that ending was world class. Completely perfect as a story, the realism could cause every viewer to hate themselves a little more.

As for performances it was all beautiful. Not one aspect was misused or misappropriated in any way. The absurdity of it was so close to real life I would bet good money that a substantial amount of improvisation was allowed.

Adam Sandler is one of my heroes. I realise how unpopular that opinion is and I totally understand it. I just see the world class actor hiding in between silly comedies and I imagine how much more he has to offer.

I honestly think he will win an Oscar one day. He has it in him.

I forgot to say how good the woman that played his girlfriend was, Julia Fox.
She was about as realistic as a person can be on camera and her contribution made the whole film much more upsetting in so many ways.

I hope she gets to work with more directors that actually know what acting looks like. She was equal to Sandler in this.

I think the Safdie brothers are reinventing what thrillers actually are.
I bet their magnum opus kills people.

I'm finally watching my copy of Seven Samurai. I bought it last year and it has sat there intimidating me ever since. Three and a half hours is a long time.

Anyway I'm 75 minutes in and so far it's very funny. I wasn't expecting the comic element to be so prevalent and it has worked a charm in warming me up to the Samurai themselves.

This opening act is the archetype for all films that build teams early on by introducing each member individually.
It's sets the social/political climate in rural Japan firmly against the Samurai as a preferred defence and establishes a "hero we need rather than the hero we want" attitude to the townspeople.

It's extremely enjoyable storytelling at its heart. The aspect I am most enamoured with is how easily the tone adapts as the imagery flits from sombre stoicism to jovial comedy and immaculate violence.

This is shaping up to be every bit the classic I was promised.

The second act is the Seven Samurai preparing the farming village to defend themselves against the bandits.
It's around an hour of more intense, revealing social commentary driven by the Samurai's integration with the villagers who's perceptions of them are at odds with their reasons for being there.

It's all moving along nicely, the wit and charm are still in full effect though there are a couple of scenes involving women that are vividly unsettling and I still don't understand one of them in the slightest.
It threw me off.

There's the world famous solo mission trope where a character proposes an insanely daring act of war and them re-emerges later after cutting a swathe of unseen destruction.

Respect for keeping it realistic though. It wasn't one against a hundred and nothing blew up.

That's where Hollywood goes wrong with the adaptations. It tries to one up common sense too often. You can see this film was written not to be like 300. It's not the story of insurmountable odds, it's the story of a carefully plotted strategic defence.
You're getting a whole hour to resolve this issue where nowadays it's all told in an epic final showdown.

If you take anything from this it's that bamboo spears actually look scary as shit when wielded even by the caring hand of a film extra told not to poke anybody important.

The villagers in this are ruthless and well coordinated. Everyone is much more defenceless in Hollywood. These guys catch a bandit coming off his horse? 20 different bamboo poles go up his ass.

There's a bloke in this with a sword almost as big as he is. In battle it should leave him comically unbalanced, much as his mind is, however he is an artist with that big bastard.

He's also fucking hilarious.

Seven Samurai - 4/4

This film is rightfully a treasure trove from which film makers still take the shiniest pieces.
It's extremely reassuring to see a film with a perfect score that actually deserves it.

A Hidden Life 8/10

A film about Austrian conscientious objector, Franz Jägerstätter, and his refusal to swear an oath to Hitler.

It is a (very) slow, quiet and intimate film; full of Austrian scenery porn. If you are looking for action, you will not find it here, but for the patient it is a lovely (wrong word to use), if sad, experience.



I'm probably going to watch some other films by Terrence Malick.

I sincerely hope Sophie Turner retires to pump out bairns for Harpo Jonas or whatever his name is.
She has had more than a fair chance at acting and she can't do it.

The lad Joffrey was the one we wanted to become a star. Now he's a dentist or something.
