First thread >>2278

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

Just watched pretty woman for the first time. Pretty insane movie were a rich guy gets a hooker who acts child like. He, I guess fell in love with her? The actor did well but he played the ridiculously rich guy almost villain like. The whole time it felt the other shoe would drop and Julia Roberts character was going to end up at an eyes wide shut party or being hunted most dangerous game style. Obviously that didn't happen, and they end up together. Very weird movie and interesting to watch. My favorite part is when Julia Roberts(the hooker) was picked up by hotel security the hotel manager gave her a cover story as their clients niece to cover for the guy. Who later on told the staff "no she's a hooker, get her whatever she wants". Flagrantly breaking the law in front of all these high end establishments and paying them absurd amounts of money to grovel and serve her. Which he seemed more amused by than hanging with Julia Roberts. Really weird movie, recommed watching it with a GF or wife. There's some soft sex scenes and you got a good chance at getting laid after suggesting a classic romcom.

Watched the Johnny Got His Gun movie finally, read the novel a long while back and it scared the shit out of me. Both the movie and the book are like my nightmare scenario, like a bad dream you can't wake up from, but that just makes them the perfect anti-war propaganda. Dalton Trumbo, who wrote both the book and directed the film, was a gommie, and it shows.
I would say the book is better, the movie felt wayyyy too fast, but I liked that they did their best portraying the surreal nature of the book. Also, Jesus Christ shows up and he's the coolest dudebro

aren't anamorphic lenses like notoriously difficult to stay focused? but the images they produce are also like, flatter and wider; which is why they've always been a favorite by certain filmmakers. I think Solaris is a beautiful film, but I agree with your general criticism; Tarkovsky is a romantic.

The Northman. Its good and yet very disappointing, in a way that almost feels intentional. Like there is next to no story (it is a proto-Hamlet), it starts with evil uncle killing protagonists father and taking the kingdom. But uncle looses the kingdom off screen, so most of the movie takes place on shitty farm where he now resides. There is a scene near the beginning of the movie that just serves to establish our protagonist as neigh-invincible and unlikable, thus defusing any tension or relatability. Characters act with no rhyme or reason to them, other than requirements of the plot. Why is Anya Taylor Joy helping Amlet? Why are they in love now? Why does 44 year old actor play a character who clearly should be in his early to mid 20s? The whole movie is schizophrenically split between serious historical drama and exciting fantastical scenes (highlights of the movie imho).

 No.24882

Starts off alright, shows a bunch of scenes from a bunch of different cities, and a few of the people in them (they're usually unemployed and in their 20s), then suddenly veers into nazi race war documentary #3985724023 about a third of the way through. It makes the subculture come across as gang-like and tight-knit. The producer/narrator also seems like a pseud and is clearly exploiting a lot of the subjects (he meets with some leftist skinheads in Chicago but they back out once they realize he also interviewed neo-Nazis). All in all, just a boring documentary exploiting a fascination of the time when it came out with a bunch of nonsense intellectual language about "globalization" or whatever narrated on top of it.

Haven't seen DR Strange yet and the more clips I see the less I seek to. Just saw the Black Bolt scene that has "the smartest man" tell Wand BB's ability and they do the Matrix mouth seal scene before his power blows his brain out in a gut-churning disgusting way. This scene is beyond retarded. BB literally trained to keep completely silent at all times and has the experience NOT to panic like a retard. Moreover his power shoulda just blown his mouth open, but the visible gore'd make it not PG enough. Honestly annoying as fuck and a perfect example of this movie's retarded nature.

Anyways just saw Everything Everywhere All At Once and it's a real masterpiece. Perfect blend between humor and tragedy, characters feel real, movie is wacky but authentic at the same time.

Imagine being such a fucking hack that you can't make a rebuttal that doesn't use pure strawmen. The point isn't that "hurr he's uber-communist cuz he survived Stalingrad" it's that he lived through hell and high water and its experiences shaped him as a man. People aren't divided into "le based commies" and "le stoopid libs" you terminally-online dichotomist.
>regularly battled with soviet authorities throughout his career
And? Soviet bureaucracy hardly was perfect and anyone that lived then can attest to that, even hardline communists.
>as a fan of perestroika
Citation? Also even assuming this, you have no comprehension of the Perestroika and the support of it. People thought it'd be a return to Lenin's ideals and supported it because Soviet Bureaucracy had become too heavy and essentially took power from the people, and they sought change. This isn't an excuse for Gorbachev and Yeltsin's betrayals, but it is an explanation as to the support of it. Hindsight is 20:20
>that's just the context of the director anyways
Yes, it has NO bearing on the film at all. A literal Belorus Partisan had been the inspiration and advisor of the film and so it had been made close to reality, nothing lib about it.

>In 1986, fresh from the success of Come and See, and with the changes brought by perestroika in the air, Klimov was chosen by his colleagues to be the First Secretary of the Filmmakers' Union following the V Congress of the Soviet Filmmakers. During the congress all previous heads of the Filmmakers' Union — including Lev Kulidzhanov, Sergei Bondarchuk, Stanislav Rostotsky and others — were overthrown in favor of "liberal" activists. According to some critics and filmmakers, the congress was conducted by Alexander Yakovlev, one of the grey cardinals of Perestroika who was unofficially presented there, consulting the activists from time to time.
>Klimov's leadership saw the belated release of many of the previously banned films and the reinstatement of several directors who had fallen out of political favor. This period is widely considered as the start of decline of Soviet cinema and the rise of the so-called "chernukha", namely artists and journalists, who, freed by glasnost, exposed Soviet reality in the most pessimistic possible light.
keep coping
like I said, it's still an impressive movie, but it is aggressively apolitical about the Eastern Front and is largely indifferent to the Soviet opposition. it opts instead for long mystical almost religious sequences and atrocity porn that seek to instill a general feeling of vague pie-in-the-sky humanism, it's very much influenced by Tarkovsky's similar stuff, and there's a good chance it was more of a commentary on the Soviet-Afghan War using the more politically correct "Great Patriotic War"

Over what, you demented ideologue? I don't care about his political ideology because it has no real impact on the film. The creator the 28 Panfilovits film is a Russian Nationalist, yet his politics have ZERO influence on the film because it is divorced from his personal politics and in films that do have the creators insert their political ideologies it is blatantly obvious. The main and only influence from Klimov isn't his bureaucratic life but his personal experience of the terror and hurt that war carries, that is all that matters.
>it is aggressively apolitical
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
1) That's a goddamn contradiction, it not going into politics is just apolitical, it doesn't attack political messages at all, it just doesn't go into them.
2) The only aggressive part of the film is the brutality of the Nazis and their Nazi ideology
>largely indifferent to the Soviet opposition
It's not a film depicting the heroic struggle but the horrors of the war for people from the perspective of the veterans. They do not feel glory trying to fight nazis, they are just fighting, surviving and struggling Не на жизень а насмерть. Films glorifying Soviet troops in the war are for the people that did not fight or had not seen it to recognize and commemorate the heroic struggle, but this film is about the perspective of the actual war - glory has no place in this, because that is not the point of the film
>long mystical almost religious sequences and atrocity porn
<Artform symbolism contrasted to harsh realistic depiction of the realities is 'religious' and 'atrocity porn'
Блять англо-саксонская мышленость это просто полный Ахтунг
>seek to instill a general feeling of vague pie-in-the-sky humanism
No, no it doesn't you fucking clod. It is a film, a visual medium of depiction, it's not supposed to be a philosophical essay deconstructing an ideology, it is a presentation of concepts and emotions through a story. There term "Drama" is a poor translation of the term "Художествтвиный Фильм" the term used for such a film in Soviet and Russian film circles. The humanism is not defined in exact terms because that's not needed, you understand it all just by seeing it, as if you are experiencing its horror and grimness from the side, and see the main character - a child for all real intents and purposes struggle to hold on to sanity and humanity in a dehumanizing meatgrinder, and despite it all he and his allies do no stoop to the level of his torturers in their struggle.
>a good chance it was more of a commentary on the Soviet-Afghan War
You have no evidence to that and given that in that VERY SAME Perestroika there existed SEVERAL films directly depicting the harsh realities of that conflict - most notably Афганский излом and the director did not even mention Afghanistan as even a remote reason for his film, you´re just finding inane and irrelevant reasons or speculations to put down the film.

I watched "Old" (2021). It was pretty mediocre. Not abysmal, but just not good - M. Night Shyamalan might be one of the few directors who gets worse over time. Unlike his other movies, there was no typical twist, that revelation in the end can barely called anything like that, because you can see it from a mile coming.

The concept of aging rapidly isn't new per se, and not bad per se, but he didn't really know what to do with it. The only classical trope was lady obsessed with her own beauty going mad over aging, and then died in a horrific twisted way - that was the only really creepy scene. Other than that, the movie was surprisingly PG-13, they wouldn't even show a skeleton. Also, the main characters that escape will not be okay, imagine you are a 6 year old in the body of a 50 year old - you'd be diagnosed as clinically infantile and get a warden. The dialog was rather awkward and the ending felt weirdly anticlimatic - so they are doing those super secret experiments, but don't even have security?

If you have nothing else to watch you can give it a try. It's not bad but is just really kinda there, it doesn't really do anything with its premise.

 No.25311

If you are ever in the mood for a modern but classic gothic horror movie with a decent budget, beautiful gothic cinematography, evil landlords and dead peasant daughters, gipsy folklore and "tell don't show" creepy scenes that still come with decent effects and gore and body horror - give this one a try.

All-around good, classic horror movie. It doesn't really have a deeper meaning I think, but it is really good at what it does.

His movies were always about how mobsters are scumbags who kill and get killed over nothing. Probably the most famous example is the "funny guy" scene (RIP Ray Liotta). Mobster movies are usually just romanticizing these people (since their origin involves the actual mob getting involved in film production to make the movies more propagandistic in their favor). Scorsese would usually show that these people actually suck. But the problem with doing this in hollywood is that actors are supposed to be able to give a compelling performance and have some kind of magnetism to them, so when you have these cool dudes playing these assholes it makes them seem cool, however insecure and psychotic you write them to be. I love watching these guys do their work but if I'm being honest, having charismatic and talented actors play these roles is a mistake for what Scorsese is trying to convey.

New Fantastic Beasts. Becoming even less surprised at JK Rowling being a reactionary TERF. This is literally like Queer-Coded Villain: The Franchise. Sure, Dumbledore is gay, but who does his love interest end up being? The fucking predecessor to Voldemort. There’s a clear subtext here that his love is a regretful sickness that makes him amoral and selfish. Voldemort/Tom Riddle himself was kind of cast as an asexual or some kind of libertine, which is purposefully atypical in a narrative where all of the Good characters end up in an unnecessary heterosexual monogamous romance or the other. There’s also some orientalism in this and the previous movie. Overall, just a dumb look into the mind palace of some rich conservative British woman.

What do you think of Schindler's List? It's a very well-done movie from a technical and moviemaking standpoint, but I am unsure what the message is. They are trying to portray Schindler as someone who ends up saving those Jews because of the logic of profit. But in reality, the Holocaust was massively profitable for German companies. The Jews were also portrayed as basically incapable who need to be patronized to not lambs being sent to the slaughter.

There are so many instances of communist and Jewish resistence against the Holocaust, and yet Hollywood always portrays the resistence of capitalists, conservatives (Stauffenberg) or clerics (Bonhöfer).

I liked the concept and style of this movie but man did they not know how to handle the pacing or story in the last half.

Revisionist westerns getting a little surreal playing up the fantasy is fun and felt appropriate here. The movie's worth watching on style points alone tbh. Has lots of good production design and some creative cinematography at points. So don't think my griping is to just hate on it. It's because the first 15 minutes or so seemed too promising for what the movie ended up being.

Unfortunately, the substance is not enough to carry the runtime. There's a whole part of the movie that's a fun aside for a quick joke but goes on way too long considering how little it adds and where that part of the plot ends up going. Shoulda been a montage. The final showdown was actually kind of embarrassing. They were too focused on doing hero shots of main characters shooting random mooks to bother making most of the action coherent. Parts of the sequence work, but there are also issues with characters seeming to stop existing when they have nothing to do at the moment (as part of a scene drags on you wonder where X is right now). That's usually while they just have the main characters standing in the middle of a street blasting in all directions for what feels like 10 straight minutes. And it gets worse when after they kill the villains' mooks the filmmakers decide that we didn't have enough shots of the heroes firing guns, so the random gang from the beginning shows up out of nowhere to provide more mooks to kill. There's "no restraint" that works and there's "no restraint" that's just mindlessly indulgent. There are also lots of problems with characters making obviously stupid decisions. Worst of all, the ending actually dips a little bit into borderline racism about black fatherlessness and muh black on black crime with a very cliche twist.

I started getting hyped when the beginning seemed to be setting up some kind of New Afrika plot on the villain side but beyond (very obliquely) referencing this as their motivation it never gets brought up again. And that's unfortunate because if you cut out all the bloat the movie has, you'd have plenty of room for something that was actually political beyond "what if we did Avengers but with black historical figures from the old west?"

tl;dr
The movie subverted my expectations by setting itself up to subvert western/hollywood tropes but then just became a very bad example of those things. Looks nice though.

 No.26618

Pretty bad. The writing is awful, the story basically revolves around 3 characters who happen to be portrayed by famous stars and every other character is laughably dispensable. It's a weird choice to focus on the 2007 mortgage crisis instead of the actual recession that happened the next year, I guess because middle class suburbanites care about that more. Very very Oliver Stone JFK-esque in how needlessly labyrinthine everything is depicted as, too.

 No.26620

Also on Vice:
The movie starts off by saying it's an attempt to explain Cheney's life. Over half the runtime is dedicated to his term as vice president and it's basically a checklist of news stories and controversies that everyone would have heard of back then. For the time before that, it's just vague and dramatized to shit. Also it kind of falls flat critiquing the Dubya presidency when you yourself are an absolute preening neolib.

Re-watched both of these again, and the "its Rambo for Russians" rings true. The main character is a war vet that fought in the first Chechen War, in which the dialogue subtly glorifies it. Throughout the first movie, all the criminals besides the protag and his brother, are Chechens. More so the sequel's villains are all Ukrainians. The same protag in the sequel now is extravagantly wealthy and a celebrity just for speaking about his experience in the military. There's a scene early on where a literal fucking neo-nazi gun merchant is portrayed as a "le wacky but wholesome" individual. It toots its own horn by showing that Russians aren't as racist and morally corrupt as Americans are. Even more ironic since one of the Russian channels showing re-runs of this film decided to add video of the BLM protests post credits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiT4pmCEApY

I just finished the 8 episode netflix series Resident Evil.
What a load of horseshit. Why do all new series have this same feeling of being mostly drama filled with nice effects. I love the original Mila Yakonovich Resident Evil movie saga. It's campy, showy, ridiculous. This show hit none of that. They didn't even get the "shadowy profiteers" right. The CEO was such a bland and goofy character, completely dispensable series.

Extremely badly written, very slow, nothing made sense. I know it sounds bad when I say it like this but I have a feeling that the creators were targeting a female audience, and the way they did it is so bland. The reason I say this is because female characters get the most screentime, there's a boycrush, there's a woman CEO who's also lesbian, the main character's husband takes care of the kid, he's a gentle pushover useless himbo, the main character has a female child that's a genius. It's as if this was written by a tumblr fanfic writer and that's even an insult to them. The writer wrote Supernatural.

It's like all series they're putting out they put them through this california liberal filter which is so fucking annoying and bland. Same with Star Trek Discovery. Bruh, if I wanted to see drama, I would've chosen drama.

“Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.” Assata Shakur
Solidly done cinéma vérité piece from 1971 capturing the idealistic, lofty, self-righteous New Left of the 60s crashing onto the shores of the hard, bitter, guerrilla 70s before they were eventually crushed under the weight of neoconservatism. Did a good job of showing how the hippies failed to appeal to the conscience of the tribunal which already had its own conscience made up, being composed mostly of non-judges and people like a trade union steward, a conservative housewife, a bourgeois sociologist, etc. representing the New Right which sought to set up an intellectual wall to the ideas of the New Left. The black revolutionaries' Malcolm X/Fred Hampton-esque charismatic, enunciated Black Power tirades fall flat against actual violent backlash from the state. The news crew's indignation and threats of publicity of what happened are also ignored by the soldiers and policemen who know they'll be protected.

Watched Another World at an open air screening tonight. It's a decent enough exposé of the impersonal and dehumanizing force of capital but it has a few flaws. The dialogue is good and the actors are good but there are a few unnecessary plot threads (divorce, retarded son) that I guess were included to flesh out the main character but they ended up feeling like filler. It would have been better if those were cut out and replaced with more interactions between mc and subordinates.

Overall a good movie that I'm sure everyone here would enjoy. It's also pretty radicalizing so I'd recommend it to normies.

Just finished the 1949 Battle of Stalingrad movies, not all that great really. There are some really kino shots and sequences, but pretty much all the acting is not good, a lot of the battle scenes are really sterile and uninspired. Also because it's trying to be more of an overview semi-documentary rather than the stories of individual soldiers/civilians, there are a lot of sequences of just a couple of people (mostly Stalin) sitting around talking, thinking, looking at maps etc. and for the same reasons it does tend a little to the 'great man' narrative.

> I honestly can't tell if it makes any sense
No the movie makes no sense , gravity and light would also move backwards. In backwards time mode you couldn't see shit because all the photons would be flying back into lamps and into the sun. And you'd be pinned against the sealing the moment the time reversal point activates, and if you left the time reversal room, you'd be flung into space, unless you put on non-time reversed ankle weights with greater mass then your body-weight. The people moving backwards in time would also appear as dark silhouettes to time-forward people. Time reversed people would have overheating problems, because when heat flows backwards any environment that is colder than your body temperature would cause heat to flow into your body. They would need to carry a non-time reversed heat-source to cool them self off.

There are other questions like what happens to chemical reactions that contain both forward and backward moving elements.
Information is also bound to entropy and hence the forward motion of time, i honestly don't know where to begin figuring out what happens with interactions that involved reversed flow information. If you are time-reversed and you'd try to re-read a non-time reverse book, you might unread it and forget what happens in the story.

We also have since found out that physics isn't entirely time symmetrical, so this can't work, but that is a minor gripe at this point.
The movie is still a fun thought experiment, just don't think too much about the details.

Old news by this point I know, But I've got through 3 episodes so far and I've just given up. The decision to essentially tell 2 stories at once just makes the pacing of both stories feel interminably slow. The character development of young Jade and Billie (nice Billie Eilish reference there guys, very subtle) somehow manages to be both boring and rushed, and they both come across as absolute twats. Also, who gets into two fights on their first day of school and doesn't get expelled, or at least excluded? The whole bullying thing is so fucking played out now that it was just painful to watch.

As for the "present day" storyline with adult Jade, I still don't know what the plot is supposed to be. So far we know she's a researcher, and that Umbrella is after her. Why? Why is she researching the zombies, and why is Umbrella after her? We don't yet know. All we know is that she's still trying to get back to her family at the University place. Okay, great. But if that was the plot, they'd have spent more time setting it up and explaining exactly what it was. Instead, half the time it's just her running away from Umbrella goons, the leader of which just got killed. Where's the plot, guys?

And everyone says "why didn't they stick closer to the games?" as if that would somehow have made this any better. It would by virtue of giving the show a plotline and forcing it to stick to one story, but that wouldn't have saved the dialogue or even the overall quiality of the show; it would still just be an adaption, after all. What would have made this show better is if it were just a different show. The Resident Evil films didn't really stick to the games at all, but they still have fans. I'll watch them if they're on.

So yeah, I'm cutting my losses and giving up. Instead, I've just started watching Game of Thrones from the beginning, and the very first scene of the very first episode does a better job of explaining the story than Resident Evil does in three full episodes. That's good writing.

Just watched Threads for the first time
I have a bit of an obsession with dark, depressing movies and heard this was one of the bleakest out there, and I have to say, it was worse than I could have imagined lol. The faux-documentary style really immerses you into the experience and the fact that they go above and beyond to portray the nuclear war scenario as realistically as possible makes this an extremely harrowing experience. Most movies deal with the initial blast or the immediate after-effects, and this movie deals with the longer term consequences of such an event, making dying in a nuclear fire look like the most merciful fate in this scenario. I thought it was still going for a somewhat optimistic "life goes on" ending, but nope. That final minute is one of the scariest endings I've ever seen to a movie and no doubt it's gonna haunt me for a while.

Liked the vibes, the soundtrack, and the aesthetics were really fucking good. Gosling's character was a proper loner social autist. Kinda unnerving at times.
The story felt a bit confusing in regards to its lesser details, and i'm not sure whether that means it was poorly written, or whether i'm just mentally retarded (probably this tbh). But it was still engaging enough that i watched the first hour of it thinking it had been only 30 minutes, so i definitely got gripped by it.
The atmosphere/ambience of the movie was phenomenal, especially the moments where the main character is just driving around at night.

I like Olivia Wilde's direction but the script was kind of weak in this one.

The first in a series of Brezhnev era war bangers, this one taking place during the Battle of Kursk.

Just saw The Gentlemen. It was entertaining enough to watch but overall pretty meh. It goes to great lengths to pretend it's some tricky crime film with the framing device, but in the end it was just braindead simple.

McCon-a-hey wants to sell his weed business to Jew guy, Jew guy double crosses him, so he just kidnaps Jew guy and extorts him for the money instead and then lets him go. Literally the whole plot. So he apparently could've just extorted him for the cash the whole time because that's a thing he can do, yet we waste all this bullshit time and filler inbetween. Also just doing the White guy vs, the Jews, Vs, the Chinese, etc. is boring and plaid out. Just Peaky Blinders but they never bothered characterizing him enough for me to give one fuck about him.

Damn, Jordan Peele completely forgot how to be subtle with this one. This was like getting beat over the head with a mallet.
Partnering with Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline) does a lot for his allegorical social commentary - it works much better with the highly stylized presentation and Selick's more humanized characters and stories.

A mix of live action and adult animation with a confrontational, polemical Black Nationalist message.

It starts off before anything else with a grotesque sambo cartoon caricature standing in front of a still photo of a lamplit street at night. The cartoon stares at the viewer for a short while before uttering "fuck you". Another sambo jumps out from behind it to tell a cynical joke to the viewer about how much of "you white folks" jumped off of the Golden Gate Bridge, and how of 1 of only 2 of the black people that did, they were pushed. It laughs bitterly and walks off with its friend. This is pretty obviously meant to be a confrontation between 2 apparent opposites in American society, with the dynamic between depicted and audience highlighting it very awkwardly via cinematic form. Also, the joke hints at a percieved difference in deaths between white and black, white people dying of ennui and black people dying of violence, showing starkly different social or psychological conditions between the 2.

A side-profile of Scatman Crothers singing "I'm a uyghur man" while the title credits roll comes after that, after which the live-action story kicks off in a rural Gullah-esque community in the South centering around a prison break plan. While the prisoners wait on their friends to break them out, one of them starts telling a story, which starts the animated story which takes up most of the runtime.

Interspersed are animation shorts centering around a curvy, tall blonde white woman symbolically representing America seducing a black sambo character before either killing or maiming it.

The whole movie is a fever dream adventure through a cartoonishly racial worldview that never lingers long enough where it has to actually say anything beyond pushing racism as a universal constant, is very dated and confused in its social polemic to the point where it could be the complete opposite of subversive, although at least not taking too much of your time, with a quick pace and short runtime, just under an hour and a half, if anyone ever decides to watch through it. Which includes me, unfortunately.

I watched Thor: Love and Thunder yesterday, and I thought it was alright. A lot of people seemed to be saying it was somehow worse than the other Marvel films because it was "too comedic" or not serious enough, which I actually disagree with.

They are all action films with comedy awkwardly and sometimes inappropriately shoved it, whereas this felt like a comedy with some action and some drama, and I think it mixed those elements far better that most other Marvel capeshit does. There were no moments where the dramatic tension was undercut for the sake of a stupid Whedon-esque 4th wall-breaking gag, which was a huge improvement.

I saw Pig, starring Nicholas Cage, yesterday. Best film I have seen in a long, long while. You think it's going to be a film where a dishevelled Cage hobbles around killing people to find his pig, like a cross between John Wick and Hobo With A Shotgun, but it ends up being a quiet, contemplative meditation upon the nature of grief. Only real criticism I have of it is that the dialogue is very quiet in places. Only 1hr30 long though, and every scene counts. Watch it, if you haven't already.

Yeah, looking back they kind of did. I didn't really notice it at the time though, so it never bothered me when I first watched it. I'm probably not going to re-watch it either, so I guess it doesn't matter!

I'm watching the 1954 version of 20,000 leagues under the Sea on my phone at the moment.

Just watched The Northman. If you're some kind of neo-Nazi who jerks off to vikings, I have no idea why you would actually like The Northman. The Norse pagans are treated as the most vile, brutish savages imaginable. Absolutely no attempt is made to romanticize the Norse, and in fact it's the opposite. They're simple-minded and casually violent savages enacting bloody rituals to dark gods between orgies of violence, propped up by innumerable captive slaves kidnapped from their frequent raids in mainland Europe. Iceland, where most of this movie takes place, might as well be a chunk of frozen Hell that bubbled up from the darkest abyss of the ocean. The movie is set in the twilight years of this culture, Scandinavia is going to start to Christianize in about a century, and the movie's attitude honestly seems to be "rest in piss, you won't be missed, the Church can't come soon enough".
