Is it any good?


I enjoyed it, solid 3/5 kind of movie. Ending was a bit on the nose.

Movies that Made Us, Home Alone episode, was amazing.

 

That Dennis Quaid sit’com’, got turned off after 3 mins or so. Pony!

 

Just watched it  - enjoyed that. I'll have to watch the rest soon.

Just finished watching Unbelievable. 

Toni Collette is a powerhouse of an actor.

After watching the four, I realised all four involved people who have been taken too soon.

Yeah I enjoyed that documentary. The way they exploited the death of Bruce Lee was shocking. :(

 

If anyone fancies some Hong Kong action after watching that I'd recommend Master Z: Ip Man Legacy. Some spectacular fight work in that with Dave Bautista as your top villain.

I’d never seen that movie with the car and the little girl being grabbed the hair and the car reversing a lot,  till last night.
 

Hong Kong cinema did not give a shit did it.

That may be the best synopsis for a film I've ever seen.

It’s a description of a scene/stunt from a movie I don’t know. Turns up in that kung fu doc.  It’a a crazy stunt tbh hence me calling it out.

Watched ‘Arctic’ last night, stars Mads Mikkelson in what is essentially a one man silent film. It’s brutal and awesome. Highly recommended.


Agree! Thanks for the recommendation. Great little film.

My Name is Dolemite is brilliant fun, almost exactly the same formula as Ed Wood or The Disaster Artist but that's not really a complaint. Great performances all round but special mention must go to Snipes, that guy has been away too long.

Just watched The Confession Killer. I'd seen the killer Henry Lucas on various things over the years (he's pretty recognizable) and knew there was controversy around his supposed killings and confessions but nothing like the extent to what is shown in this show. Pretty crazy story and well worth a watch.

Just watched Marriage Story and thought it was great. I haven't always loved Noah Baumbach's previous work but this really resonated. Incredible ensemble cast and some of the most memorable scenes I've seen in quite some time, most notably the serving of the divorce papers which was A+ farce and one particularly brutal argument that reminded me of the explosive argument Tony and Carmella had in season 5 of The Sopranos - high praise indeed.

Watched this this evening and thought it was completely brilliant, stunning acting all round

Whereas I thought it was very stagey ACTING like you see in the theatre. Always involves SHOUTING and then a bit where the actors pant breathe.

I felt nothing for it at all and can't understand the praise except for the actors playing lawyers.

Even though I thought it was great all round, you are right the lawyers are the strongest part. Laura Dern's character and acting is great. ( Got a 'No way!' from my wife when I said 'Jurassic Park' when they turned up :))

Out of all the complaints that could be made about the film (and I don't think it was perfect) the acting is probably the one I could least understand. There's at least three Oscar nomination worthy performances in there but everyone was brilliant really.

 

Laura Dern was a total hoot but probably less impressive if you've seen Big Little Lies as it's essentially the exact same type of performance.

Enjoyed "My Name is Dolemite" as well @Chadruharazzeb - thanks for putting it on my radar.

 

However, isn't this the second Eddie Murphy comeback with basically the same movie. I'm pretty sure his original comeback was in '99 with Bowfinger.

Really enjoyed the Films That Made Us Die Hard ep - one of my fave movies and knew it had a troubled story itself in coming to the screen, but never realised quite how much.

It's great, but I must confess that I - and subsequently you - got the title a bit arse about face: of course it should be Dolemite Is My Name*

Well, the missus is at her work Christmas do tonight so that's my viewing choice made for me.

 

I love Die Hard.

The Films That Made Us is surprisingly good - what could have been a cheap, lazy and cliched piece of fluff is actually well made, full of interesting insight and presses all the right nostalgia buttons in the right order. Definitely recommended.

I'm probably not the first to discover this, but if anyone else finds the auto-playing previews etc. in the UI endlessly irritating, it seems one benefit of setting an adult content PIN is that they no longer play.

6 underground is every bit as stupid and vulgar as you’d expect from a Bay film. And also brilliant. 
4 is the best. Some amazing parkour/free running - like a live action mirrors edge in parts. 
 

Though sadly lacking so far in the frankly excellent sneaker pimps song.

This is a superb (and rather sad) true story based series. Excellent acting from the 3 main female leads.

Conversely I thought it was absolute shit and only lasted 15 minutes. 

I watched Dolemite Is My Name instead and thought it was excellent.

Iron Fists and Kung Fu Kicks is a nice look at the history & influence of kung fu films from the start through to the present day with YouTube action films.
