This made me laugh so fucking hard.

 

I watched about half of it before I gave up. It's a miserable experience. I knew nothing about him before the documentary. After watching what I was able to endure, the only thing I know about him is that he might say "fuck" more than I do...barely. I was shocked to learn that someone in his position used that kind of language.  Oh, and like you said, I also learned that his conferences cost an insane about of money.

Old episodes of Bob Ross are now on Netflix. SOOOO relaxing.

They're Watching is up. Kind of slow but the ending is a ton of fun.

Finally got around to Ip Man 3. The first movie is one of my favorite, modern martial arts films. Hell, it's one of my favorite martial art films period. The second one had some interesting choreography and it was watchable, but it was a far cry from the first film. I'm not sure what to say about Ip Man 3. The cheese factor has been dialed up, the choreography is uninspired and hollow, the wire work is horrid, and Tyson is worse than I expected.

 

Thankfully Donnie Yen is a charisma making machine, or I'd have given up. Dammit.

I haven't seen the third movie yet. I loved the first one. Who does this one propagandize against?
post #5207 of 5820

Watch:

 

The_Two_Faces_of_January_film_poster.jpg

 

A exciting, erotic Patricia Highsmith adaptation with a exceptional cast. Not quite RIPLEY, but still a riveting Hitchcock-ian exercise.

This one is a little smaller in that regard. Sort of just a heroic journey scenario which is admirable. It's just a shame it falls victim to frustrating kung fu movie tropes.

I've tried watching it twice now and have fallen asleep each time about 15 mins in. The best review I can give.

Oh, I hated this.

I'm an enormous Highsmith fan, but I found this adaptation to be agonizingly dull.
post #5211 of 5820

I would say to watch Ip Man 3 for the fight between Yen and the Mui Thai fighter in the elevator and stairs and the final fight against the other Wing Chun fighter.

 

The fight against Tyson is fine if you ignore Tyson's goofy comments. Tyson and that little girl are just silly.

 

I'm a nerd for martial arts films, so mileage may vary.

 It does start slow, but it starts to pick up later.

Watched SLC Punk 2. I didn't absolutely hate it as much as I expected, but it was about as pointless as sequels get. It had some creative editing and a a nice moment or two, but yikes.

Yeah, no Stevo, but Bob, Sean, John the Mod, Eddie and Trish (recast horribly) are back...

Not Netflix, but I just learned that The Changeling is on YouTube for free. This is one of those classics I've never seen. Time to change that!

What the shit? There's an SLC2? Original cast? Hot damn! I just about wore the VHS tape of the original out in the mid (late?) 90s.


Edit: read the rest of this thread. No Lillard and recast Trish? No to this movie.

So theres a documentary called Bridgend on Netflix. 99 people, mostly young people have hanged themselves over the span of 5 years, all in this little UK town called Bridgend. Sad stuff but very interesting as they explore why the hell this is happening. Really is the stuff of horror films. Like if it was a movie they would find that 150 years ago a witch hanged herself and her spirit blah blah. Anyway watch it.

11 Good Movies to Watch on Hulu in September 2016

Bronson. Bronson! BRONSON!

 

https://filmschoolrejects.com/good-movies-to-watch-on-hulu-september-2016-6b78cc827f57#.ygo7u1o80

 

 

At Close Range (1986)

 

"Two brothers (Sean Penn, Chris Penn) spend their days in Pennsylvania with booze, drugs, and other sketchy antics, but when their criminal father (Christopher Walken) comes back to town their lives take a dark turn. The brothers and their friends find themselves pulled slowly under the charismatic thief’s wing with tragic results. Based on a true story, the film captures the bleak reality of the poverty and lack of morality that led to it all. Penn is fantastic here, and Walken doesn’t let the seriousness of the tale get in the way of him delivering a handful of pure Walken moments. I’d be remiss if I didn’t also point out that this is prime short-haired Mary Stuart Masterson material, and honestly that alone is some kind of wonderful."

REALLY great documentary on Netflix called Holy Hell. It's about this cult that I had never heard of before but it's SO in depth. 

post #5227 of 5820
Ooh, didn't know that was already on Netflix. Been curious about it

Another good cult doc to watch is The Source Family. I was surprised by how much I liked it.


And I'd probably be the only person in these parts to do so, but I'd highly recommend the Hulu series The Path as well for a modern fictional take.

I'm pretty sure London Has Fallen was originally written as Team America 2.

Jaws is my favorite movie of all time. I have not seen 2-4 since I was a wee lad. Now is my chance to watch them again. I expect exponential diminishing returns.

I've intentionally kept myself in the dark on High-Rise for a fresh viewing experience because I loved Kill List after having watched it blind. My ladyfriend wants to watch High-Rise with me, but she's squeamish when it comes to sexual violence and blood-n-guts. Should I take the plunge with her or hold off till I'm alone?

Yeah, this was really good. At first I wanted to choke the cult members and yell "What are you thinking?!?", but their shame is so palpable that I just felt bad for them.

High-Rise is a J.G. Ballard adaptation, first and foremost. It isn't fun sexy Tom Hiddleston time, like some of the marketing indicates.

 

Ballard's main characters tend to be cyphers. It's more about the environment of grotesque chaos.

 

Sexual violence and blood n' guts...yeah, that's all in there.

Well that's the thing, at first I completely understood it. At first it was them all hanging out supporting each other. Even "the knowing" was oddly innocent and harmless because they seemed so happy. Of course it HAD to go somewhere darker eventually. The tragedy isn't just the what happened to the guys, it's the loss of this community that was actually kind of great. 

post #5238 of 5820

Finished Holy Hell this morning. What the fuck? I am highly suspicious of cults and people drawn to them, so I couldn't even sympathize with these people from the start. It was interesting though because I could not shake that the cult leader reminded me a lot of Khan Noonien Singh. Not just because of he sounded and looked like Montalban, but also the way people were drawn to him.

 

Watching High Rise right now. I have very little history with Wheatley (maybe ABCs of Death?), and I know nothing about the book. I just know the movie has mixed reception, is considered controversial, and the trailer looked neat. I am about 40 minutes in and I am captivated so far.

That RAIDERS! doc about the making of the fan film is now up.

I'm well aware it wouldn't be a Hiddleston romantic romp, and I'm familiar with Ballard's work. I just didn't know how extreme it got. Thanks for the heads-up.

This was an extremely solid little sci-fi film. Thanks for recommendation. I doubt I would have considered it otherwise.

Thanks for the heads up, had been putting off rewatching these forever, managed to get it done just before NF took them off. Great fun.
