Yesterday I watched Risky Business for the first time in about 30 years. Now it's my new obsession. Basically all I remembered was Tom Cruise dancing and Curtis Armstrong yelling about Guido the killer pimp, so I was expecting a cheesy teen comedy. Which it is, and it does have some good funny moments, but it's also run through with darker undercurrents, themes of Reagan-era capitalism, sexual and romantic fixation/fascination, a dream girl like none other, and a transifxing electronic score that pulls you into a heightened state of expectation. The balance of tones is weird and wonderful. The director's original ending is also so much better than the theatrical version.

I'm really surprised how great it is.

I don't think so. I watched the version on Prime, which has the theatrical ending. The only place I've seen the original is on YouTube:



Someone posted it in this thread a while ago (last year maybe?), which is actually what made me interested in watching the movie again.

Risky Business is great, esp if all you know going in are parodies of the dance scene

God damn this movie ruled. Such a light touch and entertaining throughout. No idea how this became an afterthought.

Master and Commander is a perfect movie.

I've been on the boat they filmed with :) It (was?) harbored in San Diego and is a maritime museum (they also have a russian submarine)

ok yeah master and commander was a blast

Also they should’ve made a TNG movie with basically the same plot and it would’ve been fantastic

Alexander Nevsky (Eisenstein and Vasilyev, 1938)

man there's so much singing in this. it's a musical comedy, mostly. I've had this on a watch list for years and I expected it to be better tbh. there's some nice and striking images and a few nice bits of score but also a lot of filler material and way too much intrusive propaganda. stalin sure made movies suck.

Image
A Taxing Woman (Juzo Itami, 1987)

mostly good to great movie. most of the screenshots on GIS are awful so just enjoy this really nice poster. very purple, got some nice shades.

Image
7 Men From Now (Boetticher, 1958)

really loved 7 MEN FROM NOW. the opening scene is all time great. very early sound flick. simple, tense, a dude walks out of the rain and the situation presents itself. idk, it just keeps kicking ass the whole time really. the romantic subplot is a little uh weird but so it goes.

I generally love Eisenstein, but Alexander Nevsky felt bland compared to how explosive most of his movies are. I'm all about Ivan the Terrible Part II.

This movie was sick ass. It might be my favorite movie I've seen this year. A dude gets buried while sitting on his motorcycle then bursts out of the grave on his bike. It's sick as hell.

The Mortal Engines

I kinda loved this? The concept is great, haven't read the books but wish I did as a kid. The characters are fun. It goes through the plot a bit quick in the last half. But just felt like thrilling escapism, a nicely built fantasy world to look at

Watched Desperate Living tonight, I liked it! Waters 's horniest movie so far, lot of sex and dicks. Was interesting to have a break from Divine still in his trash movie era

had this on the watchlist for literally decades and was finally able to carve out enough time and mental fortitude to sit down with it. the movie is absolutely mindblowing and undoubtedly a genuine masterpiece. it does things i have never seen another movie do. it's complex and difficult (i will have to rewatch it tbh) but never less than a riveting, glacial, sculpture in time. how lucky we are that things like this exist. it's peaks like this that justify all the rest.

I watched

Image
The Devil's Advocate (Hackford, 1997)

I kind of skipped the whole 90s millenial panic devil movies at the time. I watched this because I saw it on netflix or whatever and was like yeah sure I wanna see Pacino be the devil, let's go. he's good in it, could use some more screen time given the length here. bonus fun to watch a Canadian born in Lebanon and a South African doing Floridian deep south accents. it's not exactly a great movie but it's a nice 90's execution of the classic hollywood Moral Tale outline, right down the fucking ending.

and also

Image
City on Fire (Ringo Lam, 1987)

very well done HK action flick, could maybe use a little more flair, but other times it really works and surprises. I often don't really latch on to undercover cop stories though. there's some good ones but when played straight they can get very samey.

Safety Last! (1923)

Image

they've got a bunch of harold lloyd stuff on hbomax. i'd never seen anything of his and watched it with my family and we all loved it. absolutely hysterical, i particularly loved all his scenes as a fabric salesman with awful customers.makes me really want to see his other stuff. gotta say i dug his sassy vibe over the melodrama of chaplin and keaton.
