I’ve gotten to see some of the Golden Globes nominees.
Altough I dont have a problem eith very long movies as I like more detail but I understand the issue cinema goers would have and I enjoyed it and the performances I thoufht The Irishman is a good but not great movie.Tne old timers give strong performances but certainly not better than Goodfellas or Casino.
The de aging looked garbage aswell to me.
Marriage story I enjoyed a lot more maybe due to a more ets say normal setting a d situation.Driver,ScarJo and Dern give good performances with a good supporting cast.Driver is a great actor.
Joker-not much to be said.Great movie.Pheonix is a favorite for a Oscar.
Once upon a time in Hollywood-maybe not a Tarantino classic but certainly a more tame but strong one.Great ensamble cast with some actors kids that might be future stars.
Pitt and DiCaprio have great chemistry.
Too bad it didnt happen in reality like in the movie.
Andie MacDowell’s daughter is gorgeous.

what say you guys?

8/10 - The Piano Teacher

A French movie about this repressed, sexually frustrated, sado-masochistic piano teacher who lives with her domineering mother.

She teaches piano at some high end conservatory and treats all her students like shit. Meanwhile she is sexually frustrated and does all this weird masochist voyer shit, like cutting her pussy with a razor blade, and pissing in public. Highly recommended if you want to watch something different.

Louis CK reviewing it, not spoiling much:

Ppl be watching some classics lately

I've watched a fair few classics recently that I don't think I've seen posted on here in a long while. Need to post them up. Love the discussion the older films bring, often a lot to learn for myself.

Having said that I watched Avengers Endgame again whch as as far removed from the classics as you can get, maybe one day eh?

Avengers Endgame

First this bit does suck arse, as does the rest of Captain Marvel's contribution.



The end to whatever was happening in the Marvel universe at that point in time. I've heard things like 'phase' used, but for me I'll probably go back and watch one or two of the other Marvel movies one day then the two Thanos movies as the full stop to them. Not sure where they go from here, though prequels and sequels are already well on their way. All the big and small characters and cast members are back. Many fan faves return and many peak in the window for a brief moment. Somehow the makers make it all pretty much tie together. It is best not to over think things. Just enjoy the feel of the movie and the end as it captures how you would want this to go out. The big good bits for me were Downey Jr giving the Iron Man character a great send off, Thanos still being shown to be powerful and not being totally forgotten while everyone does their thing and Hawkeye actually getting to play a part. It isn't on the same level as Infinity War and is at least 30 mins too long. But if you a prepared for the long haul it is worth the effort.

8/10 I'll probably wait another couple of years before attempting to watch it again.

Die Hard 2 : Die Harder

Got the 4 Die Hards on blu ray the other day (dont count 5 with its ridiculous blue tint) and watching them in order, underrated sequel featuring quality early 90s action movie minor characters. Bruce Willis looks like Steven Hawking when he uses the ejector seat. The black commando guy saying "im your kind of asshole" is a bit gay.



7/10

Going to watch Die Hard 3 : Die Hard With A Vengeance (the best Die Hard film) later.

Only good thing about 5 was the Russian bird in bike leathers.

Die Hard With A Vengeance is good though, wouldn't put it as good as the original though.

Red Blood , Red Skin.
Adapted from the novel The Only Good Indian Is A Dead Indian by Floyd Ray Wilson.

Operazione Dyn-o-mite.
An old spaghetti secret agent James Bond type rip-off.

Nebraska Jim

Following on the heels of Operazione Dyn-O-Mite! and Kill Me Now Ringo, Said the Gringo, Nebraska Jim perfectly recreates the mood and style of a bygone era of filmmaking. And this one features a director credit for Sergio Corbucci, the Italian master behind such landmark Spaghetti Western as Minnesota Clay (1964), Django (1966), and The Great Silence.

Liar Liar

I can take or leave Jim Carrey and I don't care for the father/son side of the film but some of the scenes where he's "cursed" have me almost pissing myself with laughter.

Duck You Sucker / A Fistful of Dynamite

Sergio Leone's final (and probably least celebrated) western.

On one hand, it features many of Leone's trademarks - lengthy run time, sweeping visuals, dream-like flashback sequences, characters with mysterious backgrounds, and a backdrop of civil (in this case, Mexican) war.

On the other, it departs from Leone's earlier, more famous westerns by eschewing flashy gunplay, lacking a singular distinct baddie, making the war a central part of the story (rather than just a subplot), and having an overtly political message.

Overall, I felt the movie recycled many story elements from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, i.e.: two outlaws from different backgrounds form an unlikely and uneasy alliance amid the backdrop of war (Leone had even intended for Eastwood and Eli Wallach to star in this one as well). IMO, the story meandered about too much and the characters weren't interesting or likable enough to keep me engaged over the lengthy run time (Rod Steiger gives a commendable performance as "Tuco-lite," but you can't help but wonder how much more energy Wallach would've brought to the role).

Ultimately, it's Leone's weakest film following his Fistful breakthrough IMO.

Rating: 6.5/10.
Dynamite is still very, very good... more political than the classics and more war movie than a western... but still top notch Leone and superior to My Name is Nobody which he co-direceted. Few years back when Maestro Morricone conducted the Budapest Jazz Orchestra over here with a 100 strong choir, the regulars like Jill's Theme, Ecstasy of Gold, Chi Mai and just about anything from The Mission made my eyes wet... but it was really the Gui la testa theme that sent shivers down my spine. Some of the greatest concert moments one can get live...


Incredible piece by Ennio.

The Wandering Earth



Chinese film that surprised had been dubbed rather than subtitled. Liked the initial story and concept but I lost interest in it after 40 mins tbh.

Would make sense as for Die Hard 3 they just bought the script of a heist/action film that wasnt wrote to be a die hard film, it was just called "simon says"

Thank god they did though as its one of the best action films of all time, only criticism would be the endings a bit bloated and could have done with tightening up. 10/10

Shazam

DC have made some of the worst films of the past decade. In fact it is a fact that Batman vs Superman, the other Justice League movies and stand alone Superman movies are crimes against humanity. The people behind those movies should be hunted down and killed. Shazam however is a bit different. No real cross over with anything else DC has produced so far and its a fairly small story. Billy Batson is a orphan on the look out for his mother going from foster house to foster house. He is also the last hope of some old black guy in a cave who gives Batson the power of Shazam. The kid along with his new foster brother Freddy have fun in seeing what these new powers are. Eventually more is at stake when the evil Mark Strong guy turns up as evil, bald bad guy dude. Strong gives the film a strong character to go along with the fun. Zachary Levi is great as Shazam and the kids are all on the right side of annoying. The sentimental stuff is pulled off well and the humour is where the films strength really lies.

7/10 Good to watch as an adult and with the kids, looking forward to the Rock turning up in the sequel.
