Thought it was a decent horor/trhrillrer - Bella Thonre sees to be in it a lot of these types of films.

Memoirs of a Geisha (2005)

Wife encouraged me to watch this. If accurate, it was a very intriguing look into the life of pre-war geisha in 20th century Japan. Very well shot, paced, and executed. Soundtrack by John Williams (so on point). Only major gripe was the lead was played by a Chinese woman rather than Japanese but us Americans don't normally notice that (and perhaps her mother in the film was Chinese? Idk, she had blue eyes, odd.) Great film, had me glued to the screen. Amazing how obsessed with virgin untouched woman men are, East or West.

8/10

Ahead of you
J'irais comme un cheval fou, by Fernando Arrabal.

You gotta hang on to watch it i swear, this looks a little like Alejandro Jodorowsky style, no wonder since they form together with Roland Topor and others the Panic movement, this is very esoteric

Re-watched Delicatessen. Excellent dark comedy/existentialist drama. Definitely one I'll be adding to the shelf later, already got Amelie. Wana add City of the Lost Children as well. All classics by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Really enjoying getting into French films these past two years.

I thought it was ok, had a few slightly newish ideas, but tbh I really only watched it because I think Omari Hardwick is hot

Wizards is a 1977 American animated post-apocalyptic science fantasy film written, directed and produced by Ralph Bakshi and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The film follows a battle between two wizards of opposing powers, one representing the forces of magic and the other representing the forces of industrial technology.

The film is notable for being the first fantasy film by Bakshi, a filmmaker who was previously known only for "urban films" such as Fritz the Cat, Heavy Traffic and Coonskin. The film grossed US$9 million theatrically with a $2 million budget, and has since become a cult classic.

made by the dude who made fritz do I need to say anymore :)

Vampire's Kiss ( 1988 )

If it wasn't for Cage, I'm not sure how I'd feel about it. His performance makes everything else about it totally forgettable.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen him this deranged and I've seen a lot of his films.

What an delightfully batshit film.

Highly recommended.

ENJOYMENT = 8/10

A couple of days ago I rewatched Con Air (1997) for the first time since it originally came out. I only remembered the basic plot as well as the wailing guitar soundtrack, but man, what a goofy movie. They sure don't make them like that anymore. Nic Cage's Southern accent is something to behold. Hilarious premise, lots of great gags (Colm Meaney's fancy car getting dragged into the air, John Malkovich's Looney Tunes-ass demise), unbelievably stacked cast, loads of stupid fun.

Saw Jungle Cruise at the Drive-In last night. First time I've been to a drive-in movie with a 3 year old crawling all over me. But, it was nice to get out of the house after the latest lockdown bullshit.

The movie was missing something, like a lot of modern films... but it was more successful than a lot of blockbuster films I've seen recently.

I knew what I was going in for. I wanted something mindless.

As a kid, I frequented Disneyland theme parks all over the world on a regular basis. Before Pirates of the Caribbean came out, most Australians didn't recognize the title... but I did.

I've been on the Jungle Cruise ride many times.

There have been some really clever cinematic adaptations (of seemingly impossible source material). The Lego Movie springs to mind.

Jungle Cruise is not particularly clever, but it does manage to cleverly incorporate a nod to the ride's animatronic origins.

The two lead actors are good. I also liked Jack Whitehall as the (first openly) gay character (in a live action Disney film) McGregor.

Unfortunately, the plot gets too complicated for it's own good.

This should have been a much simpler film.

Why does every film have to be two hours now?

It's like the studios saw the success of Lord of the Rings and totally failed to realize that some stories (not all) need more time.

This was nostalgic for me and that blurs good/bad, so it's hard to say what I think of this film.

6/10

Irrational Man (2015)

Another quirky Woody Allen flick. This one started off how the majority of his recent flicks do, and I could see where the plot was going... or so I thought lol. Turned out I was wrong, and while the typical Woody Allen tropes played out (love triangles, adultery, nihilism) the ending/second half took on a completely different direction.

Not my favorite of his films but well done, better than many of his more recent flicks. Emma Stone is a fox and Joaquin Phoenix is fantastic once again as a bit of a deranged man.

7/10


Starting to get annoyed with Allen's seeming ephebophilia though... something I've noticed throughout the vast majority of his films now is a consistent love interest between an older man and a barely-of-age girl. While I can identify with fetishizing youthfulness, it feels a lot like seeing feet in Tarrantino films now... like we get it, y'all like feet and teenage girls... stop shoving it in my face!
