Last movie you watched



  • 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.

    Great show.

    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.

    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.

    I would be low key scared to meet him haha

    @Ezekiel

    I think what is interesting about Stop Making Sense is that it is a concert film where the intended media is for the concert to be filmed. The staging, costumes, everything was all for the camera and the audience was extra. Whereas most concert films are just live shows that are filmed. This was the other way around and it shows.



  • I'm real bad about getting around to watching movies. Finally got around to watching Joker. Despite being nothing like it, it reminded me of The Wrestler in a way. I guess I just like seeing stories about broken people. I doubt I'd have anything more to say about it that hasn't been said a thousand times in this thread or elsewhere but basically it's really, really good and I recommend checking it out if you haven't.

    After watching Blond Ambition Tour again just now, I've decided it's my favorite concert film. Such a fun two hours. Really wish Madonna produced remasters of those early concert films. The quality doesn't detract from my enjoyment in a big way, but it's not good.

    Still waiting for my copy of Prince's Sign o' the Times (which is also my favorite Prince album) to ship from the UK. Released last month. Don't know what the freaking holdup is.



  • Shazam
    Pretty dumb but I had few laughs. Honestly been awhile since I enjoyed a DC movie. 7/10



  • Edge of Darkness, with Mel Gibson - detective Tom Craven, a lone wolf with a mysterious past, seeks retribution for the cold-blooded murder of his daughter. I liked it, but I should warn that it's utterly cliché.



  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
    Bad movie 3/10
    The Terminal
    Haven't seen it in a while. Mostly a good feel movie. 6.5/10
