Get Out (second viewing) 10

wanted sweety watch it; got real high. Interesting to re watch all the interactions. I think the best was the old white lady asking about Chris' dick in front of her husband.

Worship of filmmakers is so stupid… Anyone who ever heard a name is willing to tell you what they've done. They often leave it up in the air, and talk about influences and such. All that said, I love this scene

early BO tracking says it's going to tank, so we can all just pretend it doesn't exist.

I'm pretty savvy with VR portrayals in media and all that, but when the IRL nerd's avatar showed up looking like some final fantasy character in hi-def, I had NO idea it was supposed to be him. bad work, trailer.

Three Billboards - 5/10

Pretty damn good for an hour, then halfway through the movie, a pretty interesting premise and moral issue gets tossed over the shoulder for pointless, meandering (and mostly uninteresting) absurdity that led nowhere worth going.

mother! - :what: /10
feels like it would be unfair to rate this film in a traditional way. I thought it was intense as fuck (especially towards the end) and I enjoyed the allegorical aspects (and Jennifer Lawrence's bosom, tbqh), although I'm not necessarily a fan of cryptic films that defy explanation since too often directors, without a sense of restraint, make films that feel self-indulgent just for the sake of it.

My personal take, for anyone that cares: Lawrence's character is Bardem's muse, the baby is his new book, which explains the cyclical nature of the whole thing. All the shit that happens in the film depicts the painful process of creating art and also mirrors how the public cannibalizes your work.


A Cure for Wellness - 7/10
A bit sloggish in places, but still a good gothic horror film. The main villain was great, Jason Isaacs is pretty awesome in the new Star Trek series as well.


Silence (Scorsese) - 6/10
I like watching films that take place in historical Japan, and Silence even delivers some torture and executions Tokugawa-style. then again, it has endless scenes of a puppy-eyed Andrew Garfield feeling anguish about shit that is honestly not relevant to most viewers today, unless you're a hardcore Catholic and still see people as being in desperate need of salvation from eternal hell. Then, the film takes a pleasant turn for the better, when the main character decides that maybe, acting like a person with a conscience and saving people might be more Christian in spirit than letting them suffer and die just so they can still call themselves Catholics. Still, it's over two and a half hours long... took me two sittings. Cinematography is good though.


The VVitch - 7/10
Reading all the rave reviews, I somehow expected more... it's a good no nonsense horror film with excellent sound design (although it sometimes piles it on too thick; case in point: scene early in the film, when the main characters are sitting on their carriage moving away from the camera in a long shot - the soundtrack goes nuts at this point, and I was asking myself why the hell I'm supposed to feel that nervous at that point in the film), but not the intense masterpiece some people say it is IMHO. Maybe I just failed to see its greatness...


Don't Kill It - 4/10
Dolph was cool as usual, some gore effects were alright, that's it. Film fealt cheap/ as if it was made by a spirited, but talentless amateur.


Next up: Bong Joon-Ho's Mother.

use the VPN to watch annihilation on Netflix

8.7

Simultaneously good but underwhelming… There is a great scene

I can't imagine why they figured this wasn't theater ready… It pretty much rules. A guy said the soundtrack was much Reduced outside of cinema, and that actually makes sense

Still, it's good. Natalie Portman is a great actress
