I got a deal on the 4K Bluray of The Mummy a while back. I was too tired to watch the whole thing but so far it looks amazing. Obviously the effects are still a bit dated but the rest of the film is native 4k. The Mummy itself actually looks pretty cool imo. It’s the scarab beetles that look the worst. (The Dwayne Johnson Scorpion King doesn’t show up till the next movie)

I started watching it, then bailed out after the first half hour, skimming a bit forward just to see if it got better (did not). And frankly, I thought it was so terribly lame. I get it, in an “action movie” you can’t expect award winning acting, but man… it was crap. Pratt is always the same person in every movie he does. But in any case, the screenplay is so banal & mundane with production showing over-saturated and overused CGI. And really, the premise is just plain DUMB.

But there was Amazon promoting it over & over & over & over…

Chris Pratt earned a lot of good will for his portrayal of Starlord with me and other viewers, but he’s burning through it fast. There have been several actors over the years who played the same character in nearly every movie (John Wayne for example). But for that to work, the single character must be iconic and charismatic; they need to be larger than life. Chris Pratt in this movie comes off as…emasculated.

I had someone tell me that the movie was good and they listed the special effects as one form of evidence. Good special effects does not a good movie make, but apparently I’m out of touch with the wider audience that thinks otherwise. Tired

I like Sci-Fi and time travel a lot so I was patient with it. But I probably should have bailed 20 min in.

Murphy’s War.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy%27s_War

since today, August 2, is Peter O’Toole’s birthday,
we watched one of his movies. it is “fair”.
in our opinion, he overacts in this one.
but, for a free rental, it was good enough.

Still got time, so definitely catch “Creator“, a great POT flick.

I caught it like 0300 on a Saturnday night / Sunday morning, caught like the first few minutes of it, and stayed up ‘til dawn to watch the rest of it. It’s funny, sad, feelgood, dramatic, everything good wrapped into one movie burrito.

“Son of a bitch!!” LOL

Say it loud, say it proud!

I Am Not A Serial Killer – 2016, Has Christopher Lloyd in it

One of the more unique horror/thriller movies I have seen. I can see myself watching it again some day.

It agree it’s on the slower side but I thought they used the time well overall.

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

This Dreamworks movie doesn’t get talked about much and it’s easy to see why after watching it and the making-of featurette. This movie seems like it wanted a PG-13 or R rating; I think the creators forgot they were making a kids movie at times. Even in the featurette you can hear them talking about characters being sensual and sexy.

Here are a few observations:

  • Enough innuendos made it into the movie to piss off parents, but the dialogue is still very much kids-movie level
  • The CGI and 2D animation are blended somewhat less effectively than Treasure Planet, but the movie still manages to look really good at times due to the imagination behind the world design.
  • This movie has the most MacGuffiny MacGuffin that ever was or will be.
  • Brad Pit, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Michelle Pfeiffer all star in this movie.
  • Bloodless PG action scenes are surprisingly well choreographed

I think the concept of a swashbuckler film about Sinbad was massively held back due to being made for kids. This could have been amazing. Unfortunately, it’s just a mediocre movie with hints of greatness and is probably best to watch buzzed on alcohol.

I hope someone else takes a stab at a Sinbad swashbuckler whether it is animated or live-action. We don’t get enough swashbucklers these days.

Yea, I loved all those Harryhausen movies. I actually ran into him unexpectedly a few years before he passed away when I was wandering around one of the back hallways of Comic-Con in the early days. One of my more unforgettable moments Smile

Centigrade – slow and boring – great if you need something to put you to sleep.

Watched Nobody the other night https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7888964/

Definitly worth a watch, especially if you like Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul)

He had a small heart attack while filming the last series of Better Call Saul but is ok.

Terrific, brilliant movie with superb Albrecht Schuch acting.
Best spent 3 hours. 9/10 strongly recommend.
Berlin Alexanderplatz

The Suicide Squad

I….liked it far more than I thought I would. It’s not a movie to be taken seriously but it’s a hell of a lot of fun. Violent, irrelevant & absurd.

I actually saw this in the theater before The Matrix (which was released a couple of months earlier). It’s a personal favorite.

I thought Suicide Squad was pretty good for a DC superhero movie.  :BEER:

We’re talking about the one that just came out and not the first one? I liked the first one quite a bit, this one much less…

….Better than Dawn of Justice though

I was talking about the 2016 movie.

I didn't even know about the 2021 movie.

The Suicide Squad (2021)

If there is another Suicide Squad movie after this one, you won’t catch me watching it. Polka Dot Man is PeNgU1N oF d00m levels of “random” and Harley Quinn continues to make mental illness look like a superpower. The biggest problem is that I was just kinda bored through the whole thing. I never worried about any of the characters, partly because they aren’t that likeable and partly because the stakes never felt real. Finally, there is just something missing from the action choreography in this.

This movie is heavy and shocking. Reality was even more shocking than a movie based on that story.

Based on the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name, The Girl Next Door follows the unspeakable torture and abuses committed on a teenage girl in the care of her aunt…and the boys who witness and fail to report the crime.

The Big Lebowski (1998)

This movie always makes me laugh. John Goodman and Jeff Bridges kill it in this movie. Everyone does, really.

If you have a 4K bluray player, I highly recommend the 4K disk. This movie looks absolutely stellar in native 4k.

That is a real movie classic. LOVE it. I downloaded a 4K version of it for the permanent collection. Cool

So, I know this is the movie thread… but in case anyone here is also into serial productions, “The Blacklist” is simply amazing. James Spader outdoes himself. He has that low key snarky wit you see in many other works of his (particularly “Boston Legal”) but he takes it to a new level here in BL. I feel like I need to go back over it and record his best quotes. They are THAT good.
