Worth a watch.

Watched Contact on Netflix last night. Great movie. Must have seen it ten times since it came out almost 20 years ago.

Had nothing to do, ended up watching Zootopia. Surprisingly mature-minded for a Disney movie, moreso the Portuguese dub, heh.

That was almost 2 months ago, just so you can see how much of a “cinema buff” I am Silly

I just saw Dead Calm (1989).

Most of the movie is slow and very frustrating.

I would not recommend it.

Just watched “Kite” (“A Kaito”) last night.

Dunno if it qualifies as a “movie”, as it’s actually a car2n (“mangia”, which I think is Italian for “eat! eat!”). Rather graphic, but fun.

Originally got a butchered version that didn’t match the subs at all, so went a-looking online and found other versions that were dubbed instead of subbed. Eh, whatever works…

 

The day before was “Den Skyldige” (“The Guilty”) which I mentioned in the other thread. Great flick… ain’t gonna spoil it. If you liked “Locke”, you’ll love this one.

 

Losing a lotta OTA channels lately, can’t watch my stories, so am finally getting the chance to hit the movie-bin…

Nice, family cinema. History of loving father ready to sacrifice anything to support family.

It’s actually a pretty good flick.

Decades ago I used to love foreign films.

Now I watch movies that are mostly or completely in English.

I usually watch them at home, with subtitles on, so I can read and listen along.

Maybe I should watch more foreign films...

Depends on the movie. One that’s heavy in rapidfire dialogue wouldn’t do well with subtitles unless you’re a speedreader.

Those that are fairly sparse (eg, “Big Bad Wolves”) are perfectly doable. BBW in fact was so dialogue-sparse that you could just glance at the subs and go back to watching facial expressions and the like.

Most of the spaghetti westerns were all in Italian except for the anglos’ parts (Eastwood, Van Cleef, etc.), and most people hardly even notice.

Dubs can be pretty good or laughably bad, depending.

I just see what’s coming down the pipe and decide whether/not I’d be interested, sometimes based on imdb reviews.

Lotta times, though, “reviews” are a mix of 1s and 10s. Usually 10s from the friends’n‘families of those who were involved in the movie, and 1s from those who just want people to read their intentionally negative tirades. Sometimes they’re actually helpful, though.

Anyway…

I watch too many movies to waste everyone’s time so I’ll just stick to cinema experiences.

We just saw the new “live action” Aladdin and we all pretty much agreed that it’s a mixed bag. The new songs (2) are good. The old genie was far better at everything.

I put “live action” in quotes for a reason, the genie, despite looking like Wil Smith is CG. So here’s my big issue with it, Wil Smith is a pretty good actor. I’ve enjoyed him in everything he’s done that I can recall. His voice over is flat and the CG version of him just looks a little odd. The genie is a MAJOR character but he kinda stinks in this movie. Without giving anything away, there are a few points in the film where Wil Smith is actually present and those parts are good, great even. The rest of the movie is 2/3 as good as it could be.

We watched the old Aladdin when we got home just to get the almost good version out of our heads. I think my daughter has watched the old one 3 or 4 times since then and passed on the chance to watch the new one with her friends a few days ago.

Pass on this one and stream it when it’s available.

Also, just based on this experience I’ll pass on the “live action” Lion King coming out soon. Not likely to be worth it if it’s like this one.

The two most recent movies I’ve seen:

Stalker, Andrei Tarkovsky’s famous film; and
A Star Is Born (new version, directed by Bradley Cooper)

Stalker, like Tarkovsky’s other famous film “Solyaris,” shows that it is possible to make an innovative movie and sustain some narrative tension with a very low budget. For me personally, I think the story is filled out and sustained in a more interesting way in the novel “Roadside Picnic” (Boris and Arkady Strugatsky), upon which Stalker is based, although the Strugatsky’s also wrote the screenplay for the movie. That doesn’t mean Stalker is not worth seeing, for movie fans. It is a classic for a reason, and very well done for a very low budget film that tries to get at a lot of philosophical issues about life, work, art and other topics, in the context of a science fiction story. Solyaris, which is based on a novel by Polish author Stanislaw Lem, had more emotional impact for me, but that of course might not be the case for everyone.

I admire the way A Star is Born is put together. Bradley Cooper did a great job of directing, especially for his first major movie directing job. I thought the last few scenes were particularly well done. Lady Gaga was terrific, as was Cooper, in the main acting roles. I think Sam Elliott and Andrew Dice Clay also added a lot to the movie. Elliott in particular deserves a lot of credit he probably won’t get, for his performance. I don’t think this version of the movie adds anything substantive to the story or themes of the previous versions, but it was very well done. A bonus for me in the movie is the introduction of Lady Gaga’s character as she belts out “La Vie En Rose” at a bar, which is a song Edith Piaf made famous.

Good to know. I really owe Stalker a watch, especially since I like the vidya derivative so much.

Age of Adeline (Blake Lively is beautiful.) To bad she is married to Ryan Reynolds, Lucky fella. Harrison Ford played a decent role.

Something Wicked This Way Comes – I hadn’t seen it in years and had forgotten that Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow from GoT) played Mr. Black. His exchanges with Jason Robards are fantastic.

I just caught “Ronin” on teevee again last night. Almost as convoluted if not incomprehensible as “To Live And Die In LA” unless you watch ‘em like 30 times to try to figure out (with scorecard) wotnahell’s going on.

Excellent car-chase scenes, though.

I watched Ronin last night also, it’s one of those movies if I’m at home by myself I watch it if the rest of family there no.
