One of my favorite movies of all time. In my top ten depending on what day you ask me. I can't even use enough adjectives to describe just how much I love this movie and what it means to me. Moore's performance in my opinion is iconic. I've seen many others play drunk, but none as endearing as Moore's Arthur. Gielgud's Oscar winning performance will always put this movie on cinephiles radar, but there is so much more to this…
Jettisoning all sequels and reboots, this direct sequel to the classic 1978 original is a good effort, but not exactly the world beater many hoped for. A pretty solid kill count and another return from Curtis are big pluses. I also love the nods and homages to the now noncanonon films. The original maybe one of the greatest slasher horror films ever made, but its no where near my favorite franchise. I mean honestly I still think 1 and 3…
The film should be called, Jason Takes a Boat to Vancouver. This film is utter rubbish, totally terrible, nonsensical and dumb. It also happens to be a lot of fun and hilarious, both intentionally and unintentionally. I like to say with horror films, don't pull strings, but here there are no strings to pull, as the film is a 100 minute hot mess. Jason is now capable of teleportation and apparently there is a massive amount of toxic waste pouring…
Wow, even better than I remembered. So utterly brutal, just like Scene From a Marriage. Liv and Ingrid toe to toe in an epic battle of out of this world acting skills. Watch something like Cries and Whispers and see how Liv is cruel and seductive, then to Autumn Sonata where she spends so much of it meek and passive. Watch Gaslight to see Ingrid vulnerable to this, where she is cold and callus. Just two utterly outstanding performances.
Fantastic, loved it, Joon-ho nails this one, perfect mixture of suspense, terror and comedy. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is how much of the movie was telegraphed. But still a great ride.
This has to be the best year for Oscar nominated best picture.
Best picture nom order.
1. Marriage Story
2. The Irishman
3. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
4. Little Women
5. JoJo Rabbit
7. Ford vs Ferrari
4-6 are interchangeable.
