I still haven't seen first man but I just saw bohemian rhapsody in the theater and I thought it was really good. the ending concert felt like it really dragged on and on though...

Watched Nobi (Fires on the Plain) by Kon Ichikawa.
It made me think of this passage from the Apology:
"Perhaps you think that I was convicted for lack of such words as might have convinced you, if I though I should say or do all I could to avoid my sentence. Far from it. I was convicted because I lacked not words but boldness and shamelessness and the willingness to say to you what you would most gladly have heard from me, lamentations and tears and my saying and doing many things that I say are unworthy of me but that you are accustomed to hear from others. I did not think then that the danger I ran should make me do anything low, nor do I regret the nature of my defense. I would much rather die after this kind of defense than live after making the other kind. Neither I nor any other man should, on trial or in war, contrive to avoid death at any cost. Indeed it is often obvious in battle that one could escape death by throwing away one's weapons and by turning to supplicate one's pursuers, and there are many ways to avoid death in every kind of danger if one will venture to do or say anything to avoid it. It is not difficult to avoid death, gentleman; it is much more difficult to avoid wickedness, for it runs faster than death."

Just finished The Usual Suspects!
It was really good! The mystery around Keyser Söze kept the movie interesting although unfortunately I figured out his identity before the big reveal which was a bit disappointing...

I didn't really know what the movie was going to be about so it shocked me a bit. I thought it was just going to be a normal ww2 movie kind of like captain america with some supernatural nazi stuff

I watched Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!
It was a real trip! I think it accurately captured the feeling of being on psychedelic drugs! I'm a little shocked that it's supposedly somewhat autobiographical... Maybe I'll give the book a read if I have the time!

Just finished watching MOON!
Probably one of the best sci-fi movies I've ever watched, GERTY was my favourite character! The soundtrack was great too!

I saw Outlaw King. The story is not the best and they take quite a few liberties but the costumes and locations are really nice and mostly quite accurate.

I watched Oldboy today!
The story was super dark and there weren't as many fighting scenes as I expected but it was very enjoyable and had me hooked until the end! The plot takes a lot of turns and I had the feeling that I never quite knew what was really going on until the very end! I'd recommend it to any fans of violent mystery thrillers!

 No.28656

I liked Oldboy.
Also, that painting was by James Ensor, I recommend checking him out if you thought that one was interesting.

I heard they're giving the movie a wider release since it did so well on the two days of screening! They say it's showing in 25 markets starting on February 1st so you may still get your chance.

I watched The Prestige today!
It's a movie about magicians with lots of twists and mysteries! I'm sure almost everyone has seen it by now but if you haven't I'd highly recommend it!

 No.29409

I've been watching Schitt's Creek. I really like Daniel Levy's character and his scenes with Emily Hampshire

 No.29974

Just saw alita battle angel and it was a really fun ride! It was in 3d for no extra price which was nice, since they didn't do any cheesy 3d effects, it just made the movie look like it had depth. Maybe I'll think about reading the source material

I rewatched Police Story yesterday. It's still one of my favorite martial arts movies and I especially like the end fight in the department store. The three camera shots for they used for "that" scene is really cool and I like the behind the scenes stuff that plays during the credit scroll.

I'm a big fan of Jackie Chan's movies, but seeing some of the stunts he pulled has me seriously wondering if he had a deathwish. My favourite film of his is probably "The Young Master" as there is a good balance of action and comedy, especially in the fight where Jackie picks up a man's prized pipe to defend himself, so while the man wants to hit Jackie, he also has to avoid breaking the pipe Jackie is holding.

His drunken boxing in "Drunken Master" is mesmerising to watch, it's just a shame that there are so few occasions where he uses the drunken boxing style to fight.

It's been a while since I last watched any martial arts films, so I might have to go on another binge soon.

 No.30178

>>30171
I'm surprised at how hardy he seems to be too. There's a scene in Police Story 2 where Jackie is tied up and stripped to the waste and the villains throw firecrackers that pop when they hit him. You can definitely tell that he isn't faking the pain.

I forgot just how much Jackie Chan likes to dress up as a woman. Do girls make the best martial artists?

For anyone wondering, this scene is from his 1979 film Fearless Hyena

>>30178
I suppose if his hands survived sliding down the pole in the first Police Story, then he can handle anything. He actually got second degree burns on his hands from that slide. I can't believe he didn't quit making movies then and there.

It was perfect!

 No.30541

I watched Enter the Void today!
And here I thought watching Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was trippy, this whole movie felt like you're on drugs from start to finish... Definitely don't watch it if you're epileptic!
I think the story itself was a bit weak but the visuals and camera work were amazing! It was an interesting experience, I've definitely never watched anything like it before!

 No.30543

I saw Us last week which was pretty confusing but still really god. I'm not really sure what the director was trying to say, I think Get Out was a lot easier to understand the symbolism and stuff. Maybe I'll rewatch it when it comes out on ブルーレイ and it'll make more sense then

>>30541
Oh that looks really cool, I really liked seeing Fear and Loathing.

Just watched Pandorum!
It was actually really spooky and had some interesting plot twists! It kind of reminded me of Event Horizon but better!
Definitely one of the best sci-fi horror movies I've watched!

I love this movie, the elliptical intro with the stylized font is one my favourite cinematic entrances. Camera work was really good and I loved the 1st person PoV scenes. Other Gasper Noe works are good with the elliptical scenes that I adore, it's hard to find other work that creates scenes like these. It really captures the drug vibe and the city atmosphere makes it unqiue. The story is a little loose but I think it's fun to discuss.
