Last movie you watched



  • 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.



  • @ezekiel Have you seen Queen Rock Montreal?

    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



  • I watched Terminator: Dark Fade and I found it okay. Since every Terminator movie (except Salvation) is basically just a variation of the same movie, I enjoyed it and …. well nothing much to be angry about. Also Mackenzie Davis has an awesome physique.



  • 21 Bridges, good cop movie, but too straightforward when it could have more drama and mystery. Chadwick Boseman has earned his badge.

    P.S.: In the meantime, I also watched Knives Out, Rian Johnson's first movie about the detective Benoit Blanc. I liked it, interesting way of framing the mystery, even though I guessed some of the ending before the middle (maybe I have read and watched too many detective stories). For a moment I wondered that I'd like a Professor Layton movie with a cast like this.



  • Queen Rock Montreal

    As someone who barely knows Queen at all, I thought this ninety minutes was pretty nice. The band is so well synchronized, it sounds like an album.

    This Blu-ray has some disgusting grain management, though. The grain swarms around the performers, follows them, as they move.
