    Disagree. I thought Get Out was the best movie of 2017. At least, it was the most fun I had at the theater - similar experience to Saw in 2004. I imagine watching it on a TV by yourself would not be anywhere near as good.

    naaaa
    has nothing to do with where I watched it.
    we obviously have different tastes in films. I thought Get Out was amateurish indie horror, somewhat hackneyed acting and not too far removed from The Purge, which was cool enough for what it was but very rough round the edges.
    there where way better films at the cinema in 2017, though maybe not in the horror category.

    Street Kings (2008): Forest Whitaker was incredible, he managed it to elicit new aspects out of that generic character he impersonated and was even better at it than James Cromwell was, and way better than Denzel Washington, when both had similar parts. Chris Evans was very charismatic, too, for the little screen time he got, and made watching the film worthwhile. Since there were three writers at work, I'll call that the well-made James Ellroy part.

    Shooting and fighting scenes ranged between dumb and unnecessary, the Kurt Wimmer part I gather, and the exact same can be said about Common's idiotic Walter E. Kurtz parody -- flat and amateurish, to put it politely, but that's what you get when studio policies are enforced. Anyway, all in all an ok'ish experience, but Whitaker's screen-charisma and acting skills made it an accomplished one.

    When I was 5, living in exile in France along with the rest of the foreign scum, my first fancy dress party I went as Arafat. Had a wooden gun and everything. I was just another olive skinned person back in England and France, here in Argentina I am by contrast pretty white

    Green Room (2016)

    Intense thriller/drama about a hardcore punk band who get trapped in an isolated barn/club after playing a gig for a few quick bugs and witnessing a murder by one of the local Neo-Nazi skinheads. Patrick Stewart is surprising as the leader of the pack but acts the role perfectly. Really suspenseful and realistic. Directed by the guy who did the equally intense Blue Ruin.

    Such a great little movie, I had a blast seeing it in an almost empty theater back when it came out with some friends (shortly before it's star was killed in a freak accident no less). I hear most people who mention the movie online talking about how intense it is, but it didn't really have me on the edge of my seat or anything, it plays out like an old Sam Peckinpah movie or something and is just a really great genre exercise. Efficiently made and lean and mean and ugly, my kind of movie.

    Well written movie that explored redemption and persistence. The main character, Mildred, represented persistence. Some of the other characters, who seemed like shitty people, took their chance at redemption.

    The movie didn't unwind the way I expected it to, which was unusual, because I can typically fill in the blanks for 80 minutes if you give me the first 10. The movie has the element of mystery, but with some humor. A lot of interesting characters. Fargo-ish? But not as dark.

    Gone with the Wind (1939) -- I'm not smart enough to pour joy from a D. W. Griffith, and not nerdy enough to do the usual Star Wars run. This Selznick is perfect, though.

    so the movie didn't have a typical ending or one you'd expect?, interesting. but this movie is on my list. just by the trailer i got a bit of a hell or high water vibe from it. a huge fan movies that are based around the southern states.

    I've seen it not too long ago. After all the good things I've heard about it prior to watching it, I was expecting more. It's only one level above the run of the mill slashers, where teens get picked off one by one. Not that it's a bad movie, or that it's not entertaining. I just feel the praise isn't really justified in this case. And I really liked Blue Ruin.

    Solaris (remake)

    I had seen Solaris in the theater, and had the original at some time. I recall falling asleep watching the original.
    Two things on Solaris, one George Clooney basically commits suicide at the end (spoiler). Also in one of the flashbacks, Clooney is in the bookstore with Dr Quinn and when Clooney is talking you can see his head move around. I think that is his normal movements but it is weird.

    Another thing about Solaris, it was on DVD and I have noticed this before. But there is some sort of teating that happens on some DVDs when a person's face is shown, half of their face will move up slightly and the other half doesn't. Or it is out of sync. I do not know what the cause of this is, but this is one of those movies where it happens.

    dude, you're awful at this, you didn't even tried.

    Tarkovski's original was beautiful for its time, but right now it feels like it isn't paced that well. That's my personal opinion on the original Solaris. I have not seen the remake yet and don't really plan to.

    here is another Russian sci fi from the early 80s. It's a far cry from Solaris in terms of filmmaking, but something about the style really hits a nerve with me.




    here is Tarkovski's original

    I've tried, three times, to get through The Cloverfield Paradox. It's so bad. More than anything it's just so boring. And what is the deal with Zhang Ziyi only speaking Chinese to everyone, but obviously understanding all of the English that they speak to her? The conversations between her speaking Chinese and the other person (or people) speaking English are ridiculous.

    It brings up an interesting point about whether we will logically all speak english eventually, and tribal languages will die out, as they should, or if we will illogically train people to all understand all languages, because all tribal cultures matter.

    And before anyone tries to jump on me for saying mandarin is just a tribal language, well, all of these languages were, but mandarin more than any other language, next to Spanish or French, has benefited at the obliteration of other dominated cultures and identities. So fuck that language in its sideways vagina.

    Entirely likely. Just played weird on screen without providing context. And as dumb as the rest of that script is, that might be way more credit than the writers deserve.

    I watched The Eyes of My Mother. Pretty out there. Probably the closest an American movie has come to evoking the feel of the French horror movies, which is a compliment. Kika Magalh„es was great in what was only her second role.

    Half off at the Criterion official shop.

    I'd like to pick up Solaris and Eyes Without a Face, but I'm tapped out. I can wait until the B&N sale at the end of the year.

    The Ritual - builds up a really strong sense of foreboding through the first hour or more, then fumbles the ending. Strong acting. Everything but the ending is solid, but the ending, man, just feels like everyone went hmm, no idea what to do here. I know it's based on a novel and maybe that's how the novel ends, but damn, change it to make it halfway watchable.

    Not recommended.
