Yesterday I saw Mars Attacks for the first time. Friend loved it from childhood but I'd never even heard of it despite a teenage Tim Burton phase.

Hilarious and weird, young Danny DeVito, president Jack Nicholson, Worst Bond and little Natalie Portman being cute. Has the same kind of 90s scifi cheese I love from Phantom Menace so much.

Watched The Void

I'm not huge on this type of film (lots of gore and little plot), so this was okay. I actually felt a little ill watching it, it was a little too visceral for me. I read that what made the film good was that it didn't rely on CGI, which is true. Plot was wanting, like no character development, but that's kind of what it is. And yeah, appreciated the creepiness and surrealist horror feel and all that. I would certainly recommend it to a fan of the genre.

mother!

it was okay

its not the home invasion horror film it's hilariously being marketed as

it's instead a surprisingly unsubtle, christian themed, surrealist, arthouse film with great lead performances

i love a lot of the ideas

but it's so blunt and obvious that it feels less like a movie and more like Aronofsky doing a powerpoint presentation

there's a lot to like if you're into this sort of thing

but a little more grace and subtly could have done wonders


it was, honestly, scarier than It tho

(i fully understand why mainstream audiences are loathing it. there is nothing here for that audience except maybe that first shot of Lawrence in her see-through sundress)

Aronofsky's relationship with christianity has been fascinating. i want to rewatch his stuff now






except Noah




Noah is trash

For some reason I found myself watching The Babadook last night on Chiller and it's... different.

I felt no sympathy for either leading character, tbh.

mother! was also the last thing I saw. I actually didn't see any trailers, read any reviews, or have any information about it at all beyond the posters. So I had no expectations of a traditional horror movie (and I would have probably questioned that expectation anyway, given the director).

It was fascinating to watch that allegory play out in such a small, confined setting. The first half had almost a Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf feel (and Michelle Pfeiffer is absolutely *fantastic* in it). It was an ambitious thing to try, and it worked in a lot of ways - even the traditional home invasion horror elements worked really well for me.

I will say that I didn't expect a lot of subtlety - that's not exactly what Aronofsky is known for. Some of the symbolism was absolutely ham-fisted to me, but my friend (who didn't grow up religious) didn't catch on to a good bit of it. So maybe…

…the balance is actually fine on that front.

My biggest complaint is actually nothing to do with any of that. I don't get motion-sick in movies too often, but it does/can happen. The first half to 2/3 was full of shaky-cam (not Blair Witch level, but enough), which had the desired effect, but also made me really nauseous and gave me a headache. If I'd known ahead of time, I could've taken a Dramamine. So just fair warning to anyone else.

If you plan to go see it, do yourself a favor and just avoid any/all reviews and analysis.

Yeah, I'm definitely not seeing it based on the review I listened to, then I looked up the plot. The review didn't even say it was awful or anything, just what was being described is not what I enjoy watching.

No thanks.

I also watched Mother! last night.

There was maybe 8 people in the theater.
Myself and my friend
A couple that walked out before it finished.
A gaggle of females.
Another couple.

I was the only person to understand the allegory.
I wasnt too smug though, because as mentioned above a lot of it was hamfisted.
One guy actually announced "What a crock of poo!" and then decided to call me out after overhearing a inside joke between my friend and me.

I enjoyed it. It wasn't that clever or original, but I liked the use of sound and I thought some of the scenes that could have been more chaotic to the point it didn't work actually avoided that. The camera favouring Jennifer Lawrence and tracking worked well in that respect, but they set it up by using that technique from the start.

Yeah, his use of sound editing is actually part of what made me want to see it in theaters to begin with. Sometimes he gets a little busy for me, as far as that's concerned, but this one was toned-down compared to some of his other work.

I was anamoured with how the creaking, shuffling and the slamming of doors and objects really seemed to dance in the space of this large house that was as much of a character as everyone else

BUT

The girls in front of me kept talking amongst themselves and ruining it!
I was unamused to say the least

Ugh, that sucks. I had a terrible audience for IT, but that was somewhat understandable, as it was a Thursday pre-screening. My audience for mother! was actually incredible, though. Dead silent throughout, aside from some (understandable) reactions, particularly in the last ~45m or so. It's rare that I get that lucky with a theater audience, sadly.

It isn't for everyone, for sure. I think I'll probably see it again, just to catch some things I know I missed the first time out. But I won't be recommending it to most people I know - just a few. Like KRM, I totally understand why mainstream audiences hate it. I wasn't exactly prepared for a night of surrealist religious imagery, but I can roll with that if it's where a film goes. That just isn't what everyone is looking for in a night out at the movies.

i catch hell on this website everytime i say this but the babadook is the most overrated horror movie i have ever seen and it offers absolutely nothing and it is a bad film overall. as a horror film it fails as an allegory for loss it fails as a good movie it fails.

I didn't like it, either. I hate when allegory is in my face, anyway; I like that stuff to be subtle, where you have to think about it a minute.
4 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 9/22/17 - 2:30:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
The Babadook sucks because the horrendous child who is supposed to be horrendous in the narrative is horrendous, and thus makes you struggle to watch it as a vehicle.

I don't think everything should be meta, but in producing a film the people creating it should at least know the narrative is taking place in the confines of a film people are watching.
4 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 9/22/17 - 7:08:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
I really didn't care for the babadook at all. In fact I don't see its appeal really. I liked the lovecraftian surrealism but I didn't feel the story at all. Tho I must say the mother did a really convincing job. Like uncanny convincing. But I didn't enjoy the film and at times it was too obvious.

Also I didn't like the use of use of sound effects. I can appreciate that louder sound effects thing but I felt like I was watching a claymation show with those sound effects (ie it wasn't convincing)

Oh I saw enter the dragon and it was cool and Bruce Lee is a legend

Saw the Illusionist. It was predictable but sweet

i rewatched Hell or High Water and i loved it even more the second time. there's so much to appreciate. the electricity the film seems to give off, Jeff Bridge's performance, the emergence of Chris Pine as a talent, the soundtrack, the scenery, the story. it's just so f-cking good

Has anyone tried Moviepass?

The last movie I saw was Spider-Man Homecoming. As a big Spider-Man fan, it was fantastic to see the character really shining. He's an obnoxious quip machine, but also somebody who cares about the people around him. There's a montage of him just helping out around the city that really lets that part of him shine, and it's amazing to see.

The Vulture is a goofy character in the comics, so to see them actually draw out his potential and turn him into somebody interesting was great too. Especially great was the way they used Vulture to recreate one of the most famous Spider-Man moments when he's trapped and has to rely on only himself.

Oh yeah and they finally did The Shocker, which is amazing and I hope he shows up again in the future. The Shocker is awesome.
