In this amazing film you will see some footage from the 70’s of the mountaineer who climbed all the 8000 plus metre peaks (which took almost his lifetime). Compare that footage to this crystal clear, razor sharp, super high definition film of the surrounding skies of these mountain kingdoms. Totally mind blowing stuff. Tip top bunch of guys as well.

I agree, every minute of it is precious. It does pick up in the second episode. I'm at the bit where they discover Magic Alex's custom built studio sounds like a telephone.

 

Never been a fan of The Velvet Underground and never will be, but they were interesting and important apparently. This film does a good job of explaining why that may be. Lou Reed =insufferable dickhead.

I love the velvet underground but something was missing from this documentary. Good stylistically but empty. 

 

If I wasn't suffering from serious mental issues Id be combing over the Get Back film in total rapture. I downloaded the highest quality rips I could find for the future when I feel better.

Lynch's Dune just popped up on Netflix so I'm going in. Not seen it for ages.

Totally forgot Lynch had a cameo in it. 

Jack Nance, Everett McGill.... It's a twin peaks pre party

Some afterthoughts..... It didn't feel like as much of a cluster fuck as I remember. Maybe I've got spice tinted glasses, or the story is fresh in my head, but I'm now excited for Villeneuve part 2. The messing with Lynch's production is more obvious in the latter parts of the film where so much story is rammed in, for a while if feels like it's not far off the pacing of the new movie. Then bam... Acceleration. Such a shame it was butchered this way as otherwise it's not so bad.

If you want to stay on the dystopian rollerskate genre, try this one, lol

Amazing film. Haim rivals The Deer Hunter era De Niro, in this prescient piece of social commentary. A scathing surgical analysis of America's inevitable  cultural collapse, set against a backdrop of designer drugs, and rollerblading white supremacists.

watched this because i'm a big fan of the original and tbh, it's not a bad tribute/remake or whatever, but it's somewhat confused about "how to make a good b-movie" as this clearly is trying to be a parody of the slasher genre whilst simultaneously being a cheesy horror film

The original Slumber Party Massacre introduced my wife to Pony trainers. I think the sports coach was wearing some that caught her eye. She now has multiple pairs of Pony high tops.

Did a watch of the extended cut on Netflix, good stuff, but one thing bugged me: blood stains. Tarantino is usually good about being detail oriented, and we saw he knows about cleaning up blood in Pulp Fiction, but this was a plot hole. During the flashback, we see volumes of blood spilled and brains splattered as the residents of the haberdashery are slaughtered, on untreated wooden plank floors. Yet, 2 hours later those floors seem spotless, and they didn’t use rugs on furs to cover the massive blood spills, they’re just gone.

The Green Knight  - Wow. After I watched this the first thing that came to mind is that this is one of those rare beasts, what I would consider a "perfect" film. I don't mean that it is the "best" film I've ever seen or even "favorite" film (though, probably my most favorite film I've watched in some time), but that it perfectly executes on every level the thing that it is supposed to be: cinematography, sound design, direction, action, script, plot. There is not a thing I would add or take away. It is by turns lyrical, phantasmagoric, tender, lewd, terrifying, funny, morose, and liberating. It reminds me of a Romantic poem (and by that I mean something written by the Romantic poets, Keats, Coleridge, Blake, etc.) where each word is both carefully placed but also feels naturalistic, with both emotional overtones and subtleties that belie a very thoughtful underpinning. What a weird, beautiful, strange thing. I loved it.

this was amazing. i'm not kidding. imagine if roman polanski adapted this story for lifetime television and not given final cut and forced to cast tori spelling. forget this film and watch this instead.

Watching The Beatles films. Well sort of.

Firstly I’ve never been a huge fan of them, in fact when I was younger I actively despised them. Just because of  a misguided youthful rebellion thing. As I got older I mellowed towards them and could see slightly what all the fuss was about and enjoyed some of their music especially Magical Mystery Tour and parts of The White Album. Anyway here we are, with this new film that everyone is talking about. 

I kind of yawned through the first half hour, then after a few days went back and leapfrogged through the next 2 hours (?) watching 5 minutes then skipping a bit and watching another 5 minutes. Things finally got a bit interesting when George Harrison (easy peasy my favourite of the bunch) told them all politely to fuck off (because as far as I could see they were patronising him, almost mocking him) and got up and left the band. If anything watching this cemented my past dislike of them. I think if you hero worship The Beatles then you’ll like it, because that’s the nature of an obsessive fan, no problem sucking it all up. Whereas I couldn’t give a flying fig about them. 

Doubt I will watch any more of it. Just bored me to tears.

Paul McCartney is basically the most boring person to ever be married to the person who invented vegetarianism FACT

I saw Venom and it was horrible! Mistakenly thought it was a Scarlett Johanson flick. It is not. For the people who follow this Marvel nonsense that would have been obvious. For me, not so much. But hey, for a Marvel movie I thought it was awful. So that sure should sound positive to the Marvels out there. For anyone hoping for some in depth comments about why it sucked: FU! Don't waste your time even trying.

Score: Waste of money and should be burned to the ground.

That’s Sony’s mess, lol. But the MCU movies this year have also been crap.
