Big laugh when I saw the shared story credit with James Frey. Also the shit like this, which I'm just reading now, kinda makes a lot of sense! https://twitter.com/haaniyah_/status/1200319747126177792

Oh and to get into gear before I go full Grinch-mode in December, I also saw A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (no picture provided) and who gives a shit about journalists? Fuck off with this, please. Honestly mystified that anyone is saying this is better or even as good as Can You Ever Forgive Me?

The Man Who Cheated Himself (1950)- Felix E. Feist
It was ok.

The Mortal Storm (1940)- Frank Borzage
I loved this so damn much.

The Naked City (1948)- Jules Dassin
Really liked this, especially Barry Fitzgerald's performance. But I found the constant narration grating.

The River's Edge (1957)- Allan Dwan
Loved this.

The Scapegoat (1959)- Robert Hamer
It was ok. Guinness was great as always though.

This ruled.

is anyone saying this? I thought this was fine, but the Junod piece is a lot better.

Quite a few people I follow on Twitter expressed that opinion about the Heller movies. I was very fond of Can You Ever Forgive Me? but yeah I thought it was in a different league to A Beautiful Day etc.

I am rooting for that film to fail for committing the cardinal sin of not casting joaquin phoenix as junod

if this had just been a glossy, magazine style procedural of the subject matter presented matter of factly and with a strong lead performance from adam driver then i would've thought "fine, cool, i enjoyed those two hours" but instead it ends on the weirdest, most tone deaf possible note since adam mckay's dick cheney movie. this movie sucks. stop casting jon hamm too while you're at it, he sucks!

just finished this. Is the ending note you're referencing Jon Hamm's speech or the McCain clip?

watching The Decade lists and so forth day 5: Suspiria (2018)

I actually liked this quite a bit. it's not perfect, it's got that stupid frame dropping camera effect that I hate a few times near the end. but as far as a "remake" can be something interesting this has to be one of the most successful. and Ingrid Caven is in it!

Frame dropping? What does that mean? Is that what's happening in part of A Woman Under the Influence to make it look so weird?

I always call it the SKULL ISLAND effect cause theres a scene in King Kong (2005) that uses it in a ridiculous way that always stuck with me

I like it a lot in his movies.

And yeah, that's basically my take on Casino too. The live burialToggle Spoiler scene near the end is good though.

It's Scorsese so of course there are good parts in it. The opening/title sequence, the helicopter shot of Vegas at night surrounded by the darkness of the desert, the back and forth narration of De Niro/Pesci, Sharon Stone is great in the earlier scenes, most of the arguments between Pesci and De Niro in the back half etc etc, but the whole thing felt exhausting and I got detached somewhere around the second hour.

I watched this actually fairly good anime from 2001 called Jin-Roh and i was developing this theory as i was watching it that this was a very subtle anti-patriarchy and anti toxic masculinity movie until the ending destroyed this theory. Anyway, it's one of those anime that doesn't have any anime tropes. Nobody ever screamed in the film. And someone cried once. The pace is slow and deliberate. The style is very interesting, just bleak tones, grays, beiges, browns, subdued colors,, very beautiful animation too. I didn't get the setup at the beginning so i thought it was supposed to be modern day but with everything looking like this the 50's but no actually it is the 50's but alternate history. I suppose it's just decent, the story is fairly basic, but it has a vibe i enjoyed. Need to watch more anime like this. I mean i have said on this forum that i don't generally dig anime. Not even the miyazaki stuff (well i mean i like them more than others but i'm still just not that into it) If anyone can recommend anime that play out more like traditional movies/dramas. I know i should get around to watching Grave of the Fireflies which apparently just wrecks viewers.


edit: Oh i guess there's a Korean live-action of this made in 2018. Interesting. I have no idea if it's actually known, since i know nothing much about anime. But i suppose if it has a live action remake it's probably known

i hate this effect too, it looks super amateurish but i can't put my finger on why. maybe it looks like footage frm when indie filmmakers were trying to use fake 24p "cinematic" effects a decade ago. idk. it's all over this Gangs of New York battle sequence, which...I haven't seen the film, only this youtube clip, and I was stunned it wasn't a recut. it just looks awful
