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.

I got lucky that Austin's showing this. Saw the first portion of Wang Bing's "Dead Souls" last week, catching the rest in weekly installments. So far, it's a masterpiece (I doubt the rest will change that status), and a necessary document about a piece of history woefully unknown. Not an easy watch by any means, but certainly a rewarding one.

Specifically, this film deals with the internment of "rightists" at the Jiabiangou and Mingshui labor camps in Northwestern China in the late 50's. Comparable to Lanzmann's "Shoah", or books such as Solzhenitsyn's "The Gulag Archipelago" series or Dostoevsky's "The House of the Dead".

Vagabond is a really great film; its on mubi right now along as part of their Agnes Varda retrospective.  As with her documentary shorts, Varda was masterful at pacing and creating a compelling narrative from a realistic subject.

Also, even though they are  different, the format of this film must have influenced Twin Peaks..

Agreed. The "wine dregs" festival is a real thing and a lot of that scene wasn't acting. Supposedly Sandrine Bonnaire was terrified. 

I always liked the structure of the film, with the tracking shots as a narrative framing device. Varda always had a knack for creative and interesting framing devices (time markers in Cleo from 5 to 7, color markers in La Bonheur, etc.).

guys the twilight guy is a pretty good actor, i love him since he did cronenberg's cosmopolis, besides everybody hating that movie... he's pretty great! and then he did that end of the world movie and the psychedelic one with his retarded brother, he's solid... give him a chance...

wow this was really good. damiano was a master of adult cinema and this is one of those films that cemented his position as a true auteur.

the film is broken up into six vignettes that showcase different couple's relationships in all their tawdry details.

i'd go into more details but let's just say there's too much action and anything would pretty much be a spoiler.

9.5/10

There was a yogurt-weaving hippy rumour, many many moons ago, about a lady with a clit, in her throat.

Seems anatomically spurious.
