He is in one of my favorite WW2 movies though, "Empire of the Sun".And a great Jum Jum in "Mio min Mio". And he still is my favorite Batman.



Thank you for the WW2 movie tips Frownland. I have lots to watch now!

Another good movie to reccomend.



Peter Dinkalage needs to get an award for this one. Tragic story of Hervé Villechaize, the man who played Tattoo on "Fantasy Island". It is about the last few days before he killed himself and the journalist who interviewed him (the movie is directed by the actual journalist). Imagine, the guy was irl was much smaller than Peter Dinkalage and had normal sized organs. Plus he looked permanently like he was five at the very most. Must have been quite painful to be him, both physically and mentallly. But he was making around 35000 USD a week during the 70s / 80s when he was playing Tattoo so he offset it with partying.

Been having really poor luck with the movies I've been choosing to watch lately:

Battle of the Sexes
Sometimes likeable and entertaining performances. Interesting and fun story in the beginning and the final stretch of the movie. The center entire ****ing hour of the movie is occupied by the most banal, Hollywoodified, oscar baiting, lesbian love triangle you've ever seen. Completely brings the movie to a dead stop for unbearably long stretches of time, where the script writer loses all interest in the actually involving ideas that the movie starts out with and NAMED ITSELF AFTER. So endlessly frustrating. I kinda really liked parts of it but also kinda really hated it.

Romance and Cigarettes
A sort of pseudo-musical directed by actor John Torturro. Big stars everywhere. Totally misguided and incredibly irritating scripts. I fast-forwarded a lot. Watching this movie in full would give anyone a migraine. I don't say this often, but I think I actually found this film to be in downright bad taste. If you like this movie, I hate you. Ok not really, but damn. This movie was so annoying it makes me irrational.

Terms of Enderment
Syrupy, repetitive and with some of the oddest, most ineffective character writing I've seen in years. Absolutely nothing to grab on to here. Half the time, I couldn't even figure out who the hell thought this script makes any sense. Jack Nicholson shows up here and there, hamming things up even further, and it's the only fun parts of the movie. And before you consider the idea that maybe I don't get it, I'll stop you right there and promise you that this movie is dumber than a bag of hammers.

Winner of the Oscar for best picture in 1983. I'll say it again: Most best picture winners are either overrated or downright bad movies. What the hell is up with that?

I saw the Queen film and I enjoyed it.

Malek is superb in it.

Finally got around to watching Joel and Ethan Coen's "Hail, Caesar!". I feel like this is the movie I've been waiting for them to make all along. It's just buckets of fun.

Rewatched Blade Runner 2049.

Miles above the first movie on every level. The "sex scene" alone is just so much more memorable, creative, and visually stunning than anything in the first. It's sort of heartwarming and beautiful, while also being the most depressing thing ever.

Gorgeous visuals, fantastic music, awesome action, more interesting themes that are more fully realized, great quotes ("I'm the best one!" being my favorite).

Just, everything.

I really do think that in time, once people grow out of their nostalgia for the first, 2049 will be rightly regarded as one of the best Sci-Fi flicks of all time (unless some seriously fantastic SF movies get made in the interval, which would be awesome). But even if not, I'll still love it and rep it.

I'll always remember it as the movie that inspired me to get off my ass and take writing seriously. A novel and a bajillion short stories later, and I'm still riding that high. Guess the nostalgia is strong with me as well, even though it only came out last year.

Also...

Spoiler for .:
The ending of Blade Runner hits my gut pretty hard, but the ending of 2049, where the main character, who has accepted that he isn't a hero or magical chosen one or anything like that, still tries to do something nice for someone just 'cause, and then just ****ing lays down in the snow and bleeds out, straight up makes me cry, and idgaf who knows it.

I think they're both great, too. I'm down to watch the first with anyone, anytime.

I just wanted to express how much I love the second one.

Anyway, about the movie:



Turns out it's reputation is probably halfway justified.

Sometimes super cringy attempts at being funny. Sometimes actually funny.

Boring action climax. But several pretty ok parts on the way there.

The characters were mostly surprisingly okay in a popcorn movie kinda way. I even quite liked Kristen Wiig's character since she was the most (nearly only) relatable character in the movie. Chris Hemsworth was legit funny sometimes as their massively stupid secretary.

Some of the worst moments included dumb, forced cameos and toilet humor. And at least one unfunny dance scene.

No idea what I'd wanna rate this cluster****, but it wasn't horrible. I was mostly entertained on some basic level.

So uh, not a glowing recommendation. Just watch the original one.
