  • I like that trailer. The animation looks awesome.
  • There's always a good reason to see OP, but TLD is an irresistibly attractive Bond film in my book. Dalton is an excellent Bond, his "chemistry" with Maryam is easily felt. If only the villain(s) had been a tad stronger... But hey, then there's Barr…

  • EVIL DEAD Nothing thrills me more than resuming my EVIL DEAD retrospective (which I started on page 966 of this thread) after my no-doubt controversial position on ARMY OF DARKNESS. Quick recap: I don't like that movie particularly much. I pr…
  • The ski chase is where I throw my hands in the air. Indeed, it feels slower than the boat in Speed 2. Arnold tries to get a beat in, but even he cannot give this sequence a sense of kinetic power.

  • I think Tyler Bates has been building an interesting catalogue over the years. He can do ambient as well as melodic music very well. He even goes a little "Barry" in his score for Pearl, though not without a sense of irony. I still want a Bond sc…

  • Brosnan's Bond comes off as an "I don't want to be here" a-hole for most of the film. I love the Swiss banker opening scene of the movie very much, and I get that Bond is angry, but Brosnan's portrayal, while still balanced, struggles with keeping i…
  • I dreamt about this last night. Let's start with an opening 'crawl': War! The free world is crumbling under attacks by the ruthless Crime Lord, Blofeld. There are heroes on both sides. Evil is everywhere. In a stunning move, the fiendish …
  • @FoxRox I have yet to see the film, but I'm at least happy to read in your post that MaXXXine is still good if not great. To me, that's a victory for Ti West. My biggest fear, in truth, was that the third film would end up bad. Good but somewhat di…

  • SP, no doubt about it. I'll give TWINE its PTS, and parts (only parts!) of its score. And that's that. SP is a film I like, more so even than SF. It's not without its flaws, but neither is TWINE. And if it must come down to the foster brother thing …
  • EL TOPO (1970) If you know Alejandro Jodorowsky, it's probably because of his spectacularly crazy plans for a Dune adaptation, several years before Lynch went to Arrakis. Perhaps you've read one of the man's sci-fi comic books. But Jodorowsky…
  • Friends, it's good to see people care about what's happening in the world. But politics tends to end up a slippery road for any public forum; it's probably best that this discussion, valuable though it is, be taken to private chat rooms. Thank you f…
