Reminscience more like Incohernece

Demoliton Man - pretty good 90s big budget sci fi. Underrated or properly related. Up there with Johnny Mnemonic

I saw Just 6.5 (2019) by Saeed Roustayi and it's the best film I've seen in months. It's an Iranian thriller about a detective chasing a druglord and it's just incredibly gripping with stellar acting and beautifully shot. I'm still shook.

Yeah it wasnt even bad enough to be good like Serenity. The premise and story arent terrible but just so poorly conceived and especially after Tenet had a similarly driven plot. Oh well guess to NoBros have a limited set of factors that can motivate a character

Prisoners of the Ghostland (Sion Sono, 2021)

I've seen uh...... let me count. 16 Siono Sono movies counting this. and this is the only one that is actually bad. and it really is thoroughly bad, unfortunately. I'm sure he's made other bad movies, but I haven't watched those ones. I even like THE VIRGIN PSYCHICS. this movie, well. it looks terrible. the very artificial sets could have worked, but the photography is flat and it just looks so bad. the whole movie seems quite like, they just showed up on the set and filmed whatever came to his mind without a plan. there was a script, supposedly, nic cage read it, but this movie has a lot of promise in its premise that never at all is met. just...really...boring. this whole thing is very strongly reminiscent of the situation with Takashi Miike's SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO which sounded great on paper.. a flashy Japanese-English western inspired movie. what a huge disappointment that was. and this too, but that's ok, he's made so many other good movies.

I also watched TRON for the first time. kind of a surprise that I managed to never catch this before.

it's a very weird movie. like... the whole thing is very austere. it doesn't make any sense at all and the whole concept is just crazy as shit but what does it matter. it looks really cool. but yeah also it's just uh kind of stupid and slow which kind of limits my enthusiasm for it.

heartburn - mike nichols

the backstory behind the movie probably overshadowed it a bit (for those who don't know its about carl bernstein's infidelity while married to nora ephron)

however

In Everything Is Copy (2015), Jacob Bernstein's documentary about his mother Nora Ephron's life and career, he reveals that contentious negotiations over the movie adaptation of her novel "Heartburn" extended his parents' divorce for several years longer than most divorces take. Eventually, their divorce agreement included a stipulation that this movie was not allowed to depict the "Mark Forman" (Carl Bernstein) character as anything but a good, loving, and conscientious father (whatever his failings as a faithful husband were), and Producer and Director Mike Nichols had to be named as a legal signatory to the divorce.


neutering mark forman probably works better because it makes his infidelity that more cataclysmic to their lives mike nichols you've done it again

the ongoing metaphor of food and love "heartburn" was amazing love the dang film

"The Herald said in 1986 of Heartburn (1986), 'all of these scenes involve food, and eating is the central metaphor here: the consumption of food and the consumption of love. The motif builds so that the climax, Streep's final gesture of defiance, is much, shall we say, tastier than it otherwise would have been.'"Toggle Spoiler

Old is maybe one of shyamalans best movies, just leaning into the dumb goofiness. It really was just a beach that makes you old I respect that. Still not a good movie but I enjoyed watching it

old is my favorite of his films now easily
I look at bluegrass music as this sort of glowing ball. The point is to relax the technique around the glowing ball of feeling.

Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain (Tsui Hark, 1983)

this movie is exactly what I"m looking for in this kind of movie. frenetic pacing, opaque mythology drenched plot that is impossible to make sense of. flying swords and flying people. mortal kombat energy blasts. etc. not quite perfect, but will probably revisit this one some day which is about as high praise as I can give to anything.

Cutter's Way (Passer, 1981)

followed up on this one that is recommended on here quite often, I liked it quite a bit. seems like it should be considered a "hollywood classic"
