Super fun. Saw it at the Imax. It's been a long time since I've had so much fun in a cinema. Simu Liu is such a thirst trap and Tony Leung is great (even in English), so emotive.

Possibly my favourite in your list there's nothing else quite like it.

I felt obligated to watch it as a Sopranos fan. They ruined virtually every recognizable character. Adolescent Tony was especially underwhelming. Silvio was an even more cartoonish rendition of himself if you could imagine that. Tony's parents were watered down versions of themselves especially Lydia. And uncle Dickie was somewhere between a mobster and a bad fonz impression... The pinky swear scene was especially cringe lol



Add in a half baked racial justice angle where the Newark riots were happening and the black gangster character was cooler than any of the mobsters yet still ultimately uninteresting... They should've left the **** the **** alone that show was perfect

Adaptation - Always been a huge fan of this but caught an insane amount of intricacies toward the whole meta that are just ****ing brilliant this time around. Pretty much the perfect screenplay and Francis Ford Coppola Jr.'s best role.

Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

Quote:
Facing the jungle, the hills and vales,
my past lives as an animal and other beings rise up before me.
Virtually every shot in this movie is some real masterful ****, bro. Then it hits you in the face with the oneness with nature, the confrontation of death and memory, generational divide, the impact of dehumanizing others, and tons of really intriguing philosophical/political undertones. Really floored me all the way through.



Oh, and a lady ****s a fish.

Fuego en Castilla (Tactilvisión del páramo del espanto) by José Val del Omar


Pure eye candy, one of the trippiest things I've ever seen.

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

Jaws 3D did suck ass though.
It was Benchley. He was so upset and shocked about the backlash that followed the film, the amount of sharks killed, that he spent most of/the rest of his life studying oceanography and trying to spread the word that he got it wrong.

Spielberg I don't know. He just directed it, Benchley wrote the novel it was based on. I expect the Big S just assumed Benchley knew his stuff.
