    Madonna: Ciao, Italia! - Live from Italy (1988)
    alt text

    Very nice representation of that era of her music, her first three albums. I loved hearing the band just jam out on some of those tunes, expanding on them more than in the album versions. She has so much fun on stage. Her energy, dancing and playful theatrics with the other performers make it so much more entertaining than if it was just a singer standing around. The crowd, evidently proud of her Italian ancestry (which she exploited by speaking to them in Italian at times and mentioning her family there), was crazy for her. What a showman! Would watch it again. I'd post the YouTube version, but it has much less clarity and pop than the DVD version and its 1536 kbps PCM track.

    Army of Darkness - 6/10

    I liked The Evil Dead and, to a lesser extent, Evil Dead 2, more, for not being as slapstick, and the first especially for still being a horror movie. I just didn't find this funny or clever.



  • Finally saw Parasite, and... wow. I'm not gonna be able to say anything about it that thousands of people haven't said already, but damn it was good. One of my favorite third acts in film. I was able to see it alongside a live orchestra (which was introduced by Bong Joon Ho himself) which added to the experience immensely. I don't think I like it as much as Memories of Murder, but it's very close. I'll have my year-end list up after I see it again.

    On a side-note, I saw Cameron Monaghan there, who played Cal Kestis in Jedi Fallen Order! LA is pretty rad sometimes.

    I'm so jealous you got to go to that.



  • @tokyoslim Bong said that we were the first people to see this, which makes me thing the show is gonna go on the road. You may still have a chance.



  • so you're saying there's a chance dot gif



  • I join the club and praise Parasite now finally. Man, that's a refreshing film! A unique story with a really nice mix of dark comedy and suspense. Loved the characters. And the directing and cinematography were also really pleasant to the eye, well chosen camera angles that kept the film exciting and made you feel involved. The house was a great setting for everything.

    The audience even got cool dramatic posters as gifts here, it was the premiere night here in Finland (finally).



  • Despite the movie looking like hot garbage, I kinda gotta see Aladdin because A) The actress who plays Jasmine is really damn attractive, and B) despite how much people shit on Guy Ritchie films, I seem to like the ones everybody hates the most.

    The actress who plays Jasmine

    She was also great in the new Charlie's Angels

    Michael Jackson Live in Bucharest (1992) on DVD.

    So many Romanians passed out, holy crap. Cool entrance and exit, plenty of awesome moments in between, some of my favorites being the live gravity lean and crane ride.

    No, I haven't.



  • @ezekiel if you're into concert footage, it's my favorite.



  • I went to see Stop Making Sense with my ex in the theatre in 2016 and it was the best date of my life. People underestimate how great concert films can be.

    I watched Rush "All The Worlds A Stage" in memory of Neil Peart last month. RIP

    Also last year I watched The Prodigy "World's On Fire" in memory of Keith Flint in early 2019.

    @tokyoslim Added to my Amazon list.

    Watched Madonna: Blond Ambition Tour (1990) on DVD, which I think is a bootleg of the laser disc. Paid 30 bucks for this after hearing it's the best Madonna concert film. I've seen three previously and can understand why it's so liked. Best number was probably Vogue.

    Youtube Video

    Or maybe Like a Prayer, can't decide.

    Stop Making Sense is one of the all-time greats. Haven't seen The Prodigy one, but I did run into Keith Flint once at the Burbank Airport about 5 or 6 years ago.



  • Stop Making Sense is the best pure concert movie hands down. For a concert movie with interviews mixed in, check out The Last Waltz. Used to be on repeat in my house when I was growing up.





  • I highly recommend that everyone stop what they're doing and watch The Velocipastor on Amazon Prime

    Added, added. Was thinking about Stop Making Sense anyway, as I like Talking Heads.
