I watched some Australian film from 1982 called Starstruck which was almost fun but ran out of spunk a bit halfway through. It gave you the impression it was gonna be a tad better than it was but it's certainly so visually 80's that i didn't feel i wasted my time because i have a pathological obsession with early to mid 80's films and i'll essentially watch anything at all made in that era. And it being Australian is a nice change. The lead, one Jo Kennedy, has a nice energy about her. It's just a basic story about some young girl who wants to be a pop star. It's a bit of a musical comedy, there's some choreogaphies (one in water!) and nobody ever uses a mic to sing.

Here's a trailer


This is basically just pre-Cyndi Lauper and Madonna but her look would make you think it isn't. Even if i'm aware these two didn't really invent anything. the director ended up making the Little Women with Wynona Ryder 12 years later. Bit disappointing trajectory, but she's mostly made movies about women at least.

Way Down East (1920)- D.W. Griffith
First Griffith I've seen and I loved it. Lillian Gish was amazing as usual, and the blizzard scene was unreal.

I never really watched the Disney movies that came out after like... idk... Aladdin ? and I've been watching some of them with my kid

Image

The Emperor's New Groove is a really confounding relic of... the year 2000??? with david spade voicing South American emperor. it's a really weird one to me, most of the times closer to being a full length Looney Tunes than that era of Disney.... and the number of gags that involve characters falling is really a lot. falling down hills, into MULTIPLE ravines, out of towers, just falling down all the fucking time.

and ANGEL/DEVIL shoulder bits!

Image

actually warburton is definitely the best thing here.

and this movie's title doesn't make any fucking sense.

Hercules does not seem to be a very accurate telling of Greek mythology, but on the other hand they do have Danny DeVito sing a song so it's not a total loss

of the post-2nd golden age Disneys, i think Treasure Planet and Atlantis are both undersung. neither is perfect, but both are really fun adventure movies (& better than like, Tarzan or Pocahontas imo -- but i liked Titan AE more than average too, which i'd compare them to, so ymmv). Lilo & Stitch is the best, and Home on the Range is probably the worst (even if you include the early CG movies).

Communion (1989) - aka Christopher Walken gets an anal probe. Favorite thing I've watched recently. It's the filming of an alien(?) abduction book that the author still claims is real. He went on to write five or six more! Only thing is that the director certainly doesn't treat it like fact. All through the movie there's all these crazy paintings and statues that seem to suggest your enviroment informs your dreams or hallucinations. It would also explain why the alien effects totally suck. At some point Walken is sat next to some props! Really good mood movie with shots of nighttime New York and a sick soundtrack featuring Eric Clapton.


That’s too bad the alien effects suck because this screen grab is incredibly scary

That scene is pretty scary and it's set up well, but as the movie goes along it seems more and more to be taking the piss. There's other aliens who look like they escaped from a cheap Star Wars knock-off.

This didn't used to be an Andrea Arnold board. I hope that has changed!

Image
Relaxer - As much as I love Buzzard, I don't find it that funny. Unfortunately this is almost all comedy including a bad Danny McBride rip-off and a painful scene where we see homophobia get wrecked by logic. Burge is very good so it's still worth watching. The whole thing just feels like an IFC Midnight movie from five years ago.

Image
Carnal Knowledge - Hey, no one told me this was so good! It's a weird blend of nouvelle vague, new hollywood, and kitchen sink drama so it probably seemed confused at the time, but has aged rather well. Art Garfunkel is a revelation!
