Settlers (2021)- A family of settlers on Mars are accosted by the son of the previous land owner. Bleak, sad, frustrating, slow, and dusty... actual dust, not tears. The ending seems inevitable. Didn't hate it, didn't love it. It was ok for what it was. I didn't like how the film kept trying to make you feel somewhat sympathetic towards the antagonist. I get that it was a sh*tty situation but no, f*ck no, f*ck him. Also, Steve was easily the best character.

Die In A Gunfight (2021)- I love terrible movies and this movie was awful...ly fun and hilarious if you accept that it is a terrible movie. A modern take (sorta) on Romeo and Juliet with their families commanding rival News corps. Dilalogue is awful and cheesy. Casting is a Smörgåsbord of mostly B-listers with the exception of Alexandra Daddario's soul-stealing eyes and Travis Fimmel (who steals every scene he's in). Also, I don't know what a Wade Allain-Marcus is but I want one as a side-kick/life-partner-in-crime.

Pig (2021)- "Oregonian Treasure: Truffle Pig Culinary Boogaloo"- Went in presuming to see a latter-era Nic Cage Shlockfest-full-O-fun revenge flick and ended up adoring a Nic Cage drama I was not expecting.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)- My #1 favorite movie of all time. Seen it literally over 100+ times in my life. Can recite nearly every line. Perhaps that should have been the bonus question this week. Name a movie you know every line to.

Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure (1977). 

This is not a children's movie. 
This isn't an adult's movie. 
This is pure, unadulterated nightmare fuel mixed with refined, high-octane schizophrenia. 

Don't watch it. For real. God help you if you're high.

Titans on HBOMax.  Been binge watching.
The fight scenes have gotten better in season 2. Season 1 they looked like a bad 80s action movie with lots of closeups and camera cuts.

I have Max, Prime and Hulu.
No movies have caught my eye recently.

This week I've mostly been working on my Community rewatch.  Up to season 5 now, where they start to hemorrhage cast members.

Then I noticed that nearly half my Amazon Prime list is leaving in two weeks, so I started to do some movie catch up:

Slaxx (2020) - A haunted pair of jeans murders the staff of a clothing store.  If you like weird horror movies that don't take themselves seriously, you might like this. C+

Highlander 2: The Quickening (Renegade Cut) (1991) - Someone mentioned this a few months ago, and I realized I hadn't seen it in decades.  The Renegade cut was supposed to make it better.  How bad could it really be?

Well, it's still one of the worst movies ever made.  Hilariously bad in nearly every way.  I did find some things to like.  The set design is pretty neat, especially in the city scenes, with a run down retro art deco styling.  Sort of Fallout meets Cyberpunk.  There are some decent practical special effects.  Sean Connery is charming even if he clearly doesn't give a shiat. Micheal Ironside is hammy as ever as a villain.  Still a big waste of nearly 2 hours. F.

Oh yeah, kids movies that aren't kids movies:

Late 70s and early 80s Disney stuff.  Tron, The Black Hole, The Black Cauldron.  And also The Secret of Nimh, Watership Down and a few other gems in that period.

As a little kid in that period, I'm surprised I grew up at all well adjusted.

murder murder murder, kill kill kill....

We took the child (who was like 3 at the time) to see March of the Penguins.  Seeing a crapton of them die for various reasons was a bit off-putting but she was crawling around the seats anyway and didn't watch.

/The theater was mostly empty, save for other parents who were wondering WTF they brought their kids to see.

Cruella and I loved it. The soundtrack was pretty darn good as well.

Space Jam: A New Legacy - My son wanted to watch this, and I enjoyed the original Space Jam for what it was... but why? Why was this film make? Every single joke, reference, gag used was dated in 2007! I mean some of it would have been fine, although I never needed to see Granny wear Trinity's leather catsuit, and you can't unsee that, ever!

Pig -Nick Cage as Chef John Wick must save his beloved truffle pig. This was fantastic and felt like an actual independent film! So much better than I expected. Don't learn more... just go watch this and enjoy some premium Cage.

Dr. Death - aka Donald Trump, if he practiced medicine.I knew about this doctor from other docs, but this was a great series that truly shows the depth of depravity and evil a sociopath can sink too.

An Unknown Compelling Force - this was a conspiracy documentary on Prime about the Dyatlov pass incident. Starts with the UFOs and Bigfoot, and ends with a well reasoned theory on what actually happened that takes into account the local people and their customs and the Russian Military. It wasn't the best doc, but I was impressed with them using bullshiat as bait, and then pivoting hard into reality based reporting.

Queen Bees - my wife's friend came over for dinner and there was nothing on regular TV. I suggested a bunch of different movies but they outvoted me. Love in an old folks home. Good cast, but was as interesting as warm spit.

Kid's movie that's not:

Labyrinth. Ageless goblin seducing a teenage girl, creatures that take themselves apart and can pop out their eyes, and, of course, David Bowie's codpiece.

Return to Oz: the Wheelers and the heads on display

NeverEnding Story: The Gmork, the existential dread of the Nothing and we won't even talk about what happened to Artax.

Watched Gunpowder Milkshake on Netflix. Was a decent movie. Kind of like an all female John Wick.

Didn't watch many movies this week.

Black Widow - Really enjoyed it, but its biggest issue was the timing. Should've come out after Civil War. This just seemed a way for them to set up Black Widow 2.0. David Harbour was a standout in it.

Gunpowder Milkshake - It's Sucker Punch meets Kingsman meets John Wick, but unable to be better than any of those movies (which is weird, because Sucker Punch sucked). Hyperviolent and I enjoyed it for the most part, and the fight scenes/choreography was well done. The hospital fight alone was worth it. But it made me nostalgic for the days when squibs were cheaper than CGI. There was so much CGI blood it would've looked like the Matrix if you converted it to binary.

Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard - Wife really wanted to watch it since she loved the 1st one, and I enjoyed that one as well. It's been a while since I've seen Ryan Reynolds or Sam Jackson sleepwalk through a movie, and both of them were doing it here. Salma Hayek seemed to be the only one trying, and half the jokes were about her hooters.

Not Movies

Ted Lasso: SOOOOOO GOOD! And I don't just mean quality, I mean in general feeling. Even when you aren't laughing, you're constantly smiling, because his positive attitude is unbelievably infectious.

Invincible: Heard from a lot of Farkers recommending it, finally decided to try it out. Holy shiat, what a ride. I got one of my friends to finally check it out. He's watching the first episode and about 35 min in he texts me saying "This is pretty boring. They're just a Justice League ripoff." I said "Just finish the episode!" About 10 minutes later I get a "WTF WAS THAT!" and he was hooked.

Coraline is chock full of disturbing imagery that a number of parents were surprised to see in a "kids' movie."

I heard about this:"Inside Edition" Mike Tyson vs. Shark (TV Episode 2020) - IMDb

And thought "Mike Tyson Vs. Jaws?!?! How cool would that be!" But it turns out it's just a show for SharkWeek. That's too bad. I wanted a SyFy movie that was literally Mike Tyson fighting a shark.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
I didn't even know Kevin Smith made another View Askewniverse movie. It was just Jay and Silent Bob Bob Strike Back again, but it amused me. At first I wondered why Jason Mewes' grandfather was playing Jay in this one, then I realized that Mewes didn't age well.

It also reminded me that, although I've seen almost all the VA movies, early on I didn't realize they were related, and often got confused by some of the recurring characters that I should have recognized, but didn't. So now I want to go back and re-watch the other films. I then watched Mallrats, which helped me clarify Jason Lee's character.

/Will second (third?) Watership Down for not a kids movie.
 
2021-07-19 3:04:47 PM  
Watership Down is a kids movie. Yes, it shatters the Disney mold, but that is a good thing.

/saw Bottle Shock this weekend. It made me read up on the Paris event to see what really happened.

I made it halfway through Factory Girl. Sienna Miller did a great job portraying Edie Sedgwick, but the movie was garbage. I lasted until Totally Not Bob Dylan (Please Call Off Your Lawyers, Mr. Zimmerman) showed up. The minute that guy opened his mouth, I bailed.

Caught Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) on Turner Classic. Adapted from a Playhouse 90 production written by Rod Serling. Stars Anthony Quinn as a boxer with a detached retina who may go blind if he keeps fighting. He needs to find a real job, but his manager (Jackie Gleason) needs the money he brings in, his trainer (Mickey Rooney) wants what's best for him, and a guidance counselor (Julie Harris) is just trying to help. Appearances by Jack Dempsey, Rory Calhoun, and Cassius Clay.

Also caught Death Becomes Her (1992), a wacky Robert Zemeckis film with Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis, and Goldie Hawn. Hard to tell if it's film noir, screwball comedy, horror, or social commentary.

Ghostbusters 2016? the female one, watched it with my 5 year old who loves the original Ghostbusters about 15 minutes in he was asking if the "real" one was on instead. He sat through the whole thing though even laughed a couple times. I hated it, which is sad, great cast wasted and the CGI ghosts look worst then the ghosts from the 80s version.

Luca decent overall, I get the whole find people who accept you thing, but I didn't see them as gay like others have commented just good friends, young boys have boy best friends why are people reading more into it?

A Series of Unfortunate Events the Jim Carey version, Im reading the books with my little girl we are also watching the Netflix series as we get through each book. Not too bad but I feel like it spoiled some things in the story we have not got to yet and we are on book 6 so way past the story line in the movie.

I remember seeing the teleplay of "Requiem" on VHS.  Had Jack Palance as the lead; pretty damned good.

Cruella - I liked the costumes, the sets, and the acting, but I did not get caught up in the story.

Pig - I really liked it, very affecting. Ignore comparisons to John Wick. This is more like an art film. Nick Cage is unrecognizable. This is also the second pig-themed movie I've seen lately, the other being Gunda, which I also recommend.

From the trivia about the movie Pan's Labyrinth.

After the first week, movie theaters in Mexico placed signs on posters warning about the movie's graphic violence, because so many people brought small children to see it. It was also reported in the news in Spain.

For me one of the most horrible scenes in this movie is when Captain Vidal has captured one of the partisans who is a stutterer and the Captain promises to let him go as long as he can count to three without stuttering.
