Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance (Toshiya Fujita, 1974)

These movies are pretty excellent at being specifically what they are. Yeah it's not as good as the first one and I like the idea of a political plot but it all eventually runs through a kind of weak supporting character so eh. Good atmosphere and some nice shooting.

The Old Dark House (Whale, 1932)

Unfortunately I thought this stunk. I can see why people would be a fan of this like, progenitor of campy horror comedy but very little of what was going on here worked for me, except the guy offering people potatoes.

Aquaman (Wan, 2018)

I have no interest at all in the DC universe shit that's been churned out but this seemed like it would work OK for me and maybe not traumatize my child. I loved it, truly, I thought it was a perfectly executed comic book movie. I knew this was My Kinda Fuckin Movie when they went into the underwater battle arena and there was an octopus playing drums but it just keeps moving the dial the whole movie toward "yeah, fuck it" until a dude in an underwater space marine armor riding a giant alligator is charging to attack a bunch of giant crab people shooting lava mortars and Blade Runner 2049 can go to hell, Aquaman is a modern masterpiece.

Depeche Mode's It's no good is in this movie. In a scene where black manta is making is new gear. It seemed so random to me i can't help but mention it every time someone mentions this film even if clearly nobody cares

Leave Her To Heaven (1945)- John M. Stahl
Really liked this. Gene Tierney was excellent in this.
Image
Leon Morin, Priest (1961)- Jean-Pierre Melville
This ruled.
Image
Libeled Lady (1936)- Jack Conway
This was quite enjoyable, with solid performances from the main cast, especially Harlow and Loy.
Image
Lonely Are The Brave (1962)- David Miller
This was good for the performances.
Image
Lonesome (1928)- Paul Fejos
This was amazing.
Image
Long Day's Journey Into Night (1962)- Sidney Lumet
What a masterpiece, though it isn't hard to see why. Contains breathtakingly riveting performances from Hepburn, Richardson, Robards, and Stockwell.

Raging Bull (1980): I can't decide whether this should go in Action Movies or Old Movies or what. It doesn't fit neatly into any of our threads. I want to talk about it but I don't know exactly what I want to say, beyond that I think the biggest tragedy of the movie is Cathy Moriarty's (lack of) career.

The King of Comedy (1983): just absolutely bizarre. Does this movie exist without the Hinckley shooting? I don't know, but its relationship to that (presumably) inciting event is perplexing.

Sandra Bernhard has maybe the most disturbing face I've ever seen. I find it just viscerally upsetting. The shape of her mouth, the perpetual belligerent sneer. Perfect for this role, but what is it like to live in that.

i have to begrudgingly give credit to the mcu for their role in giving me back my agency to unabashedly talk about how great martin scorsese films are without having someone call me a bro intellectual

I really can’t say I’ve liked the recent films of his I’ve seen, but I do like Taxi Driver and Goodfellas a lot and Casino to some extent too. I really need to fill in the gaps though.

rewatched half of love exposure tonight. with some friends i love to watch movies with but haven't for a good while, felt really good. instantly became one of my favorite movies when I watched it like 5 years ago, but I don't think I really understood why, it just knocked me out emotionally. my blindspots and lack of reflexive thinking are really funny to me now, and it's easy for me to see why I was so moved by the protagonist and the movie now. that fighting scene at the end of the exposition still makes me cry, two yearning young people gleefully fighting with the basic sympathy of a shared enemy, the emotional catharsis of the kiss and the tragedy of the impossible. i can't think of another action scene in a movie that's made me weepy.

remember reading sono saying he hates family dramas and that japanese movies need more poison and being like "word" but now the critique seems a lot more obvious and direct to me - he hates family dramas cause he hates families and the conspiracy of the world, and "poison" is basically just subversive content. the exploitation stuff and gore is always in service of characters joyfully breaking from the world. "sin" enables the protagonist to have friendships, and I love how friendship is always depicted as purely good. i like how the characters are flawed but still righteous in their breaking from the world. i dunno, im having trouble writing about this, maybe in another 5 years. oh and also it's just so fucking funny

i watched Kill List last night and that was pretty dumb. has that f*cked horror thing where it's like incrimentally more fucked up in a shock way, but you see that pattern and kind of bored with it and wondering "well, what could be worse than that." i dunno it's a remarkable punchline movie. felt like the music/dread was a little eh. i dunno i've avoided ben wheatley but this was ok i might have to try another

Scorsese doesn’t do much for me generally but yeah Taxi Driver is actually great and I liked King of Comedy. But all those movies where it’s Rocco and His Brothers with a cool soundtrack, I feel like the world only needed one or maybe two of those.

the deposition scenes are fantastic and it's got a great back-and-forth rhythm that a more staid mafia movie would probably never do
