half-ass watched Galaxy of Terror (1981) last night, it was surprisingly competent for something obv riding the coattails of Alien. few cool shots and ideas but also some terrible ones (alien slug-worm raping one of the characters to death), would've been better if i'd been drunk

I also donated money to the altar of rampant capitalism, but I thought endgame was a slog. I'm not going to bother to explain further, it's a dumb 3 hour superhero retcon where nothing of interest happens, and unfortunately it takes itself way too seriously.

 

Edit: or maybe it's just that the jokes all fall flat.

Edit edit because why not: currently watching the Wandering Earth. Earth is going to crash into Jupiter for some reason, so they put big rock powered engines on earth to fly it 4000 light years to another sun. Unfortunately something happens on the way, and it plays out mostly like the Day After Tomorrow. There's also a bit trying to ape Gravity where they've even gone all out and made a lacklustre copy of the gravity soundtrack. Just don't. It is the worst, and somehow it's getting decent reviews, next big thing my ass.

I think they're trying to go to another solar system, then something bad happens, which is why they're going to crash into jupiter, so this guy tries to shoot jupiter:

Went to see the new Avengers.  Little bit hung-over might've affected this but I walked out (first time i've done that in many years).  God that movie was nauseating.  It was so boring i couldn't take it anymore.   I know action was going to eventually start but I wasn't invested enough to give a shit.  

 

 

Spoiler

Fucking time travel?  Really?  I feel like an 8 year old wrote this movie.

The guy shooting Jupiter was definitely a highlight.

Endgame: great escapism. Anyone who expects more from a superhero movie is an idiot.

Just don’t watch superhero movies and space out when people start talking about them.

I thoroughly enjoyed Suspiria (2018). I didn't think I would like it all tbh. I love when that happens.

You weren’t entertained? There were spaceships, lasers, aliens, backflips, fat gods of thunder, mountains and more. It was like everything that makes up IDM and more.

Yeah I panned it a page or so back, but I gave it a second go in the last week and it is a really good film. Probably needs an adjustment viewing for adoring fans of the original, but watching Johnson during the 2nd viewing is a lot of fun, and the coven company/outside context stuff worked better this time around for me. Likely less divisive with more viewings I'd imagine.

Last night I finally dug an MCU film:

I'd gladly trade in the rest of MCU for another entry of Ant-Man's quality. Disgraceful that this isn't widely regarded as the ideal, a perfection of formula that isn't just about a good act here or a good act there, but a fully effective execution overflowing with characters, action and humour you actually like.

I'm just thrilled to actually like an MCU film! Thanks Ant-Man! The rest of those Avengers should be bowing down to you.

PS - It took me about 1.5 seconds to realise he was yelling "Ant-hony" instead of "Taxi!", given that either line suits the circumstances.

If I could I would force you to watch Transformers movies the rest of your life.

 No gods of thunder and no backflips if I recall. That said, I’ve been entertained by several of the Transformers movies, because my expectations going in are nil.  

for mass consumption media, the marvel movies are very well done, and are, for the most part, entertaining. It’s like complaining that you shouldn’t enjoy chocolate because you already know what you’re going to get.

O, I agree. People should expect the worst when going to a movie which is engineered to grab a billion in its opening weekend. Lowest common denominator committee trash made by our capitalist overlords. 🙂

huh.. I skipped out on this completely I think because I saw the twilight guy. gotta check my subconscious bias'. Juliette Binoche is maybe my favourite actress, didn't realise she was in it.

endwar was way better than i expected it to be. i've been basically bored by every marvel movie except captain america 2 and the first iron man. usually fall asleep in them. as bloated and convoluted as it was, somehow managed to be damn near enjoyable. didn't fall asleep for a second. wouldn't've paid to see it though

I did not know what to make of it tbh. Some strong Tarkovsky feelings - particularly the flashback stuff.
