great. dunno why it took so long for me to see it. & damn, that Dolby Atmos soundtrack is rich. hopefully more small films explore the possibilities of dense sound design

Seconding the disappointment with can you ever forgive me, which is such a bummer because diary of a teenage girl was one of the best surprises I’ve had with movies in a while. So many different avenues to explore with forgery, and all it really goes with is, “look at these charming assholes.” And like, grant and mccarthy are charming, sure, but it just ends up feeling really dull.

fascinating

the whole point of this movie is to accumulate global box office and definitely plays to a low common denominator but somehow i'm not mad at its lack of respect for me there's a weird art to its clinical approach and i appreciated it more than the mcu's openly smarmy way of ripping people off

and it definitely created a world i would have loved to explore more or at least taken even a few seconds every once in a while to let me digest

on the official sgp scorecard 'the wandering earth' gets 5.5 Sweet Gregory Pectins out of 10

there's a 5-10 minute stretch that is set in your deranged dreams after you eat too much red meat watch demolition man, the super marios bros movie, and blade runner at the same time and immediately pass out

i actually liked it more than the first one. it still spent way too much time with chris pratts insufferably boring character, but the music was much better and tiffany haddish's queen was better than anything in the first movie.

Watched Burning, and was liking it a lot until that ending. :? I was feeling like “finally, someone got the feel of Murakami right. The three main actors are great, and it got the main characters right. The protagonist was kind of bland as he should be, and the girl was super charming. Loved her miming eating the orange and her African dance. Then suddenly it’s turned into a bleak murder revenge flick, which I was not expecting only because it seemed like the filmmakers would be too smart for it. I guess they got me!Toggle Spoiler

Alien 3 (Assembly Cut) - This movie is so underrated. I don't get why people hate it. I mean, I do get it but there's a ton of great stuff in this, especially in the Assembly version which I hadn't seen before. Honestly think I like this better than Aliens, which I find cheesy in a lot of ways. The setup and the last 20 minutes of Aliens is amazing but I feel like it drags in the middle and the Marines kind of annoy me. The story in 3 is more intriguing and there's a lot of great character work. I especially love Charles Dance's performance. 8.5/10.

It's always weird when I remember that's Fincher's first film. I've only ever seen ALien, I should fix that.

Felt really uninspired. I kept looking at the time on my phone and was feeling antsy to leave for the last hour of the movie. Probably didn’t help being relatively drunk in a kid’s movie.

Also saw the Joni Mitchell 75th Birthday tribute concert last week. Was a little too long but there were some inspired covers. Seal brought the house down.

Alien Resurrection (1997) - I had only seen parts of this before, never watched the whole thing. This film is...odd. I didn't dislike it as much as I thought I would. It's definitely not a great Alien movie, but it's reasonably entertaining and there's some nice shots and set pieces. The choice of director is really weird and I don't think he was a good fit for the franchise but it's kind of a mildly enjoyable oddity. 6.5/10.

All seen over the past week
Water & Power - Pat O'neill
Image
This didn't exactly stick with me too hard but I was pretty enraptured by the imagery the whole time. My experience watching this was fairly similar to my experience with The Grand Bizarre in that I was continually enthralled with the imagery and mostly annoyed with the soundtrack - and since the sound design is so tightly embedded into the visual structure of both films I was unable to get fully on board with either one.

The Man Who Stole the Sun - Kazuhiko Hasegawa
Image
Image
The real knockout film I watched this week. Deeply charming, alternatively a dead serious thriller about a lone madman with a nuclear bomb, a very silly character driven action film with a rock star in the lead role and some marvelous musical montages, and a broadish political satire of social mores. The production history and talent involved (kiyoshi kurosawa and shinji somai were both asst directors for this) make it a precursor/harbinger for Japanese cinema of the 90s and beyond. The way it handles tone and genre is striking and inspiring. Just a fantastic unabashed blockbuster of a movie.

Gilsoddeum - Im Kwon-Taek
Image
Really great. A powerful and straightforward recitation of deeply tragic events punctuated by a killer soundtrack and some very tasteful cinematography.

A Summer at Grandpa's - Hou Hsiao-Hsien
Image
I'm making a project to watch all of Hou Hsiao-Hsien (and more Taiwanese film in general) this year. I feel like HHH's magical eye for framing and sense of rhythm was fully developed by this stage, but the story is frankly boring and the tone is all over the damn place in an unpleasant way (the fucking hemorrhoids joke??). The best is yet to come (I hope).

I somehow had a poster for Alien Resurrection in my room in high school, I assume because it was one of two posters I had acquired (I got a big Wowee Zowee poster later).

There’s a sequence in AR that’s similar to a sequence in Deep Blue Sea and I feel like calling AR the Deep Blue Sea of the Alien movies is accurate. It’s reasonably enjoyable and I like the Jeunot regulars.

I watched Overlord last night. The first half was slower than I expected, starts out like Band of Brothers then comes closer to parts of Inglourious Basterds before the horror stuff kicks in. Not necessarily complaining about the pace, but it’s a long 1:50. Wyatt Russell has some percentage of his dad’s charisma and that helps.

Yeah I thought of Deep Blue Sea during that part too. It's ironic because I think Renny Harlin was signed on to direct Alien 3 at one point. Then they got an even more eccentric Euro weirdo to direct AR.
