The 39 Steps: I had never seen it. Pretty enjoyable.

Masculin Feminin: Also had never seen. This was pretty forgettable to me.

I watched the new Avengers on a plane flight.

It was a movie. Nothing good to say so I'll confirm it is, indeed, a movie.

The Indiana Jones films finally being released in 4K

 

As with other Disney titles, if you already own these on digital, they were upgraded to 4K/Atmos today for free.

^ That's pretty awesome (the auto upgrade). Feel like lots of folks would just eff you in the A and insist you buy the upgrade. 

Caveat -   I watched this Irish horror flick because of an article that called it something like "David Lynch meets Saw." I've never actually watched SAW all the way through so can't comment on that. What I will say is, for a low budget indie horror flick, this thing delivers way harder than I expected. Excellent use of sound and tension throughout, definitely some Lynch vibes all around.

Caveats (haha):

  • Highly recommend watching this thing with headphones on, so much of the tension is in the excellent soundtrack/sound work.
  • Don't go in expecting production values of like a Hereditary or a It Follows or any of the A24. It's clearly low budget but totally understands its limits. 
  • Watch it all in one sitting (I had to break it up over 2 days because life but kind of wish I'd just powered through - it's a tight hour and a half so not long)
  • It's only available on Shudder but I'm sure enterprising internet people will be able to find it otherwheres

saint maud. this fucker burned into my mind. quality disturbing psychological horror. like an aronofsky film. 8/10 

this was tight. good use of a small budget, though that showed a bit in the brief moments of CG. effortlessly female led. pretty impressive overall for a debut film.

In The Earth.

Good fun, kinda fell apart by the end. Also every character except Shearsmith (whomst I didn't recognise until I saw his name in the closing credits) was a cardboard cutout.

Relic.

Enjoyed this. Especially when it went all House of Leaves.

The Invisible Man

Way too long and dumb af

oh yeah, I watched Relic recently also, it was deece. another small but slick female-led horror joint. Bella Heathcote's acting is kind of bland though, she doesn't have depth.

In descending order of awesomd to lame:

First two conjuring movies (main movies) are pretty great. At the end of the day, still going to be a Hollywood affair, but the direction and the acting/character building is pretty top notch. 

The second Annabelle movie (creation) also pretty good (and way better than the first).

The Annabelle Comes Home brings back in the characters from the main series of films and also pretty good. 

Feels like diminishing returns from there. The Nun has some nice bits but kind of falls flat, first Annabelle movie is pretty lame. La Lorna was very meh. 

My 2 cents

Clovehitch Killer was pretty good for what it was, the odd timeline of the storytelling was maybe a little cheap but it worked well enough here. the cliche aspects to the story sorta drained things but it could've been way worse, had some good shots and some good acting but one big plot hole that's sorta bugging me. whatevs.

      Title says it all: post a still, others guess.

      So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film).
       
      Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake.
       
      Here is a list of their films:
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris
       
      What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines...
       
      No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best)..
       
      In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc).
       
      In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems
       
      I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others.

      Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this?
       

       
      p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch).
       
      p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

      Josh Cooley has a book coming out featuring famous scenes from R-rated movies in the style of children's books. Really cool stuff!

      Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this.
       
      If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best.
       
      Thanks a lot!
       
      PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game

      Didn't see a post about this when I searched, so I thought I'd mention it. Back in October, Biosphere posted the silent film 'Man With A Movie Camera' to Youtube complete with his score and I only just found it. I have the 2cd set of Substrata that includes this, but I hadn't seen the movie with the score synced up before. It's really awesome how parts of the music act as sound for what's going on in the film. For example, the sample 'sorry to wake you' coincides with a woman waking up. And the various spectral sounds that seem like part of the music when you listen to the score by itself turn out to be foley for machines and trains when you watch the movie.
       
      There is a brief childbirth scene, so you might get a bit grossed out, but this is balanced out by the cute topless Soviet woman giving herself a mud bath. Kind of racy for 1929.
