Been doing a lot of movie watching recently. Back in the groove I guess...



Things Heard and Seen

Piece of f*cking garbage. Actively bad and predictable. This was a recommendation from a friend. The ending was trash. Whole film was trash to be honest.



Holy Motors

Showed Dana this. She was uncomfortable the whole time. Hated it. Thought it was unique though. It definitely hasn't aged well for me but it's still kind of the modern day Jodoworsky film.



Jaws 2

I got my VHS player working. We have so many tapes at the shop now that I'm going to be in sh*tty VHS movie heaven for the foreseeable future. This is a piece of garbage. How is the mayor still the mayor? Kids were trash actors. Fun film though.

Went to see this with a friend at a local cinematheque in the short breathing space we had between vaccination and delta. Simpler times and a truly wonderful film.

My great-grandma was born in Corleone, Sicily.
So recently I decided to wath the godfthaer movies.
The last movie I've seen is The Godfather III, and it's not as bad as many people say, imo. It even made me cry 2 times lol, and I think it was a good ending to the franchise

Funny story about this one. When my brother and I were very young (age range 5 - 7 I think), my mother left us with our uncle for the evening. He decided to get us a pizza and let us watch Jaws 2. My brother is younger than I am and while he was eating his pizza, there was a scene, near the beginning of the movie I think, where a severed leg just floats up to the surface of the water...and my brother just runs to the bathroom and has to throw up. My Uncle got an earful from my mom later that evening.

Is that the one where the shark gets up on the boat and chomps on that guy? That scene disturbed me when I was a kid.

Happiness - The most rancid thing I've ever seen in my life. Astonishing, really, and surprisingly humanizing of its monster characters. Gotta say I expected the parents' plots to be much darker. After watching this I just want to watch to sit in a quiet room and drink a glass of water.

Fantastic Planet - An absolute delight! The story is resolved a bit too quickly, otherwise the animation, message, and sheer alien creativity made this an all time favourite.

Parasite - I thought this would be one of your dryer satires and was glad to be surprised by how much of a gutbuster it was.

The Holy Mountain - Bro how can you be one with the universe and participate in that much animal cruelty come on. I'm pretty down with Jodorowsky's philosophy of putting yourself through tribulation, abandoning ego, etc to be able to better connect with the universal consciousness and that psychedelics can be a useful but dangerous tool to accomplish this. Wish this film had better sound.

Hausu - Absolute eye crack cocaine. The silly camp factors had me rolling (the cat meowing to the music lmfao) and the mirror sequence/WWII subtext ****ing floored me. Guess I gotta see everything this guy's done now.

Sorry to Bother You - Rewatch with a friend. Caught some more of the references this time around (didn't know about Blood in My Eye when I first saw it) and (SPOILER) loved the part where he was in the police van and the point they were making about how they were trying to frame the situation for him to compel him to hopelessness. Can't wait for the next film from Bootsy Collins.

Inland Empire - This has been my favourite Lynch movie for a while because it's just so extravagantly...Lynch. Had my first watch where I really felt like I was actually getting (most) of what he was trying to get across and it's just a goddamn powerhouse. The scene with her neighbour and the one on Hollywood Blvd are hard to top. Still making my way back through his filmography, so we're yet to see if this is still my favourite Lynch film but it still feels like a solid choice. I'm fairly certain I prefer it to Mullholland Drive, at least.

12 Years a Slave - Loved McQueen's films leading up to it but never got around to watching this one. I thought I was familiar enough with harrowing slave narratives but this film handled it in a way that didn't feel stale or oscarbatory. Thought it was excellent.

Coherence - Dogme 95-inspired scientific thriller where a comet makes things all fucky at a dinner party. Excellent writing, Mike's part was especially provocative.

Spoiler for theory:
Did the people who showed up late pass through the dark zone before they got there? Were they even from the same universe? There is also the part where Mike thinks Laurie was a yoga teacher and she doesn't remember him being in Roswell.

More on Mike: I'm unclear on whether Mike left the note, "freaked out" as he put it, then killed himself, or if it's two different Mikes leaving the note and attempting to murder his other self.

Vivarium - Clever and entertaining, has a lot of the canned pitfalls of American comedy though.

No that's the original. Shows how little Benchley knew about sharks: as if that would happen. Sharks don't even like us - not enough blubber. Well, maybe on Batty...

The only good Jaws movie is the original as far as I know. A classic case of pushing a franchise beyond its original, in both senses, movie, with terrible results. And don't even get me started on Jaws 3D!

To Tore's point though, the original Jaws scared the hell out of many kids from ever going into the ocean water again. I've seen it with my own eyes. Hell, even today, if I'm in the ocean water on a beach day and I start humming the Jaws theme to my wife (*daaaa dum.....daaaaa dum.....da dum da dum da dum....*), she'll immediatley get irritated and plead with me to stop.

Was it Benchley who didn't know anything about sharks, or Spielberg?

Jaws 3D did suck ass though.
