Just my musings about different movies. I'm mainly using this as a way to keep track of all of the movies I want to watch or have watched.
An unreal experience that rivals the best medieval folklore tales.
Every single aspect of this film is downright masterful. David Lowery's adaptation of this story is an enthralling epic that lives and breathes its source material. I found myself just captivated by this story of honor, conviction, and what it means to be a knight. It slowly lures you into the world and never lets go.
On a technical level, The Green Knight is a marvel. The sound design of…
The franchise that carries the flag of "turn your brain off action" is back in full-force. Much like the other movies, you literally don't even need to have seen the earlier ones to enjoy this.
There isn't a universe where I wouldn't find this film somewhat fun. How much fun would depend on how outlandish it got. Well, in the first hour, Dom and the gang drive a car across a rickety bridge and use the remaining rope to SWING…
Shout out to the people behind me in the theater who shouted, "Well, that sucked", directly after the movie ended. 😂
Seriously though, this movie is masterfully done and it's probably going to be my favorite to come out this year.
This is the best film Paul Schrader has made since Affliction (which came in 1997, so that's saying something). I don't know what finally enabled him to make this movie, but whatever it was, I'm glad it worked.
Powerful and extremely necessary.
Lee recontextualizes the Vietnam war through the eyes of the Black experience. It exposes two wars being waged, one on the ground in Vietnam and the other for Civil Rights. It's not subtle about its intentions, but would you expect any different from Spike Lee? You can't look away from the inhumanity of war itself. Some of the images he inserts just struck me in the most poignant way.
One of Lee's finest efforts to date.
