A Boy Called Christmas (2021)- A Santa Claus origin story presented as a cutesy live-action children's movie with some surprisingly dark (yet refreshing) undertones. Kids liked it and so did I.

Copshop (2021)- Shoot 'em up thriller in a cop shop. Gerard Butler is slick, Frank Grillo is at his Frank Grillo-eist self, and Toby Huss steals every scene as the psychotic Lamb. Ending was a little meh but overall a fun flick.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021)- The first one was ok. Kinda how I feel about this one. Is it bad? No, not particularly. Was it any good? Sure, I guess. I was definitely laughing. It felt overly silly for a set of characters I don't usually associate with silly. Venom and especially Carnage, to me at least, are vicious and these movies don't quite share that vision.

QotW:
So many weird films to choose from but Crash (1996) is definitely one of the best. Fantastic Planet (1973) scarred me as a child but I grew to like it as I grew up.

The only movie I was able to watch this week was Lantana (2001), which I found disappointing. It's doing the whole "all these lives are connected" thing, but it felt half baked. Even the big reveal was a let down.

Also, Mullholland Drive rules. Naomi Watts is just incredible there. One of my favorite performances ever.

Film seen in the past week: Ghostbusters: Afterlife.  Really enjoyed it, but it may be hard to access if you've never seen the original.

Weird Film?  Naked Lunch

Mulholland Madness was better than Goofy's Sky School

I just finished binge watching Yellowstone. I mean 8 to 10 hours a day for three days straight.

So bad, its good. But, I'll tell you what would be great, if the cowboys in the bunk house watched all the old Kevin Costner movies like "Dances with Wolves", "Robin Hood" "Open Range", etc and made fun of them. It could be a running joke. That would be awesome.

I've been watching Endeavour, a Masterpiece Mystery series set in 1960's Oxford.  The only problem: I woke up with a British accent in my head.

The parents were visiting so I played Baby Driver for them to show off both the 4k TV and even better Dolby Atmos sound. This movie has such a great sound stage. Some other mo ies may have better scenes here and there but not as a whole movie.

Otherwise it was all college and NFL football over the holiday weekend.

Binged the Avengers movies with a bad hangover. Loses a lot in a home viewing. Mindless garbage that passed the time.

F is for Family's final season. Good stuff, still has the contest of who can say fark the most times in a scene, but overall a decent ending and some unexpected character development, especially the hippie blonde guy.

Saw a bunch of Yellowstone, hung over flipping between the Avengers. Over the top cliches and numerous gratuitous scenes of horses running and spinning in circles. Stupid time killer, no likable characters.

And of course the greatest film ever made once again, Freddy Got Fingered. Nothing beats a true classic.

A Bronx Tale (1993) Watched it for the first time in about 20 years. DeNiro's directorial debut.  Understandably a little heavy on the Scorcese sauce, but not too bad.
 
2021-11-29 11:03:10 AM  
I watched Cowboy Bebop.  I was going to bold that, and I started to, and it just felt wrong.  They just...they got soooo much right and still screwed it up.  They snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

I'll get over it.
 
2021-11-29 11:05:23 AM  
Favorite "weird" movies:

Bubba Hotep-Truly awesome movie. Bruce Campbell as Elvis in a retirement home. His best friend is Ossie Davis, who thinks he's JFK (They dyed me this color!).

Rare Exports-Deeply weird, and perfect for the Silly Season.

Soulmates, Series 1 (2020): Finished watching the series. Good anthology series about what happens if science finds that people actually do have a soulmate. Not enough questions asked for my curiosity, but if you liked Black Mirror, you might like this.

Panic, Series 1 (2021): Apparently there's a place in Texas where people have cars, boats, and money for parties, but they're all so broke that new high school graduates can't ever leave unless they compete in "Panic," a dare game in which one contestant wins tens of thousands of dollars. Starts out with potential, but gets dumber with each episode, like a snake eating itself, until you wonder how they manage to pack in so much dumb.

Hanna, Series 1-3 (2019-21): Interesting children raised to be super soldiers story starts well, turns into mean girl drama, and then barely hangs together on relationships that make no sense. Apparently if you work for the CIA, you can shoot as many of your coworkers and security people as you want and you'll never go to prison, get a nasty note in your file, and none of the other security people will ever spread a bad word about working with you.

The Spirit of Christmas (2015): Lifetime movie. Chick about to get a promotion in the Big City goes to the obligatory quaint inn in the country, falls in love with the dude who own the inn, but he's a ghost. Whoa, didn't see that twist, didya? Actually filmed in MA at a quaint inn and not in Canada, but it still has an ending that makes no sense whatsoever. Worth watching the last 20 minutes to see the ending, then go to IMDB and read the howls in the reviews.

I liked Mulholland Drive.

I caught NetFlix' The Harder They Fall, with Idris Elba and whole raft of other watchable actors. Jonathan Majors continues to impress, as does Lakeith Stanfield. I especially liked seeing Regina King again after knocking the Watchmen series out of the park. Zazie Beats is still gorgeous as all kinds of hell, and I got a kick out of Delroy Lindo as Bass Reeves. The gunfight at the end is fun stuff. Overall I liked the movie but the director wanted to push it as more of a Fantasy Western than 'realistic' with music and some design touches in the saloon that didn't work for me. It felt incongruous with the rest of the movie that was done more straight-faced aside from how everyone's clothing was always clean, against the modern trend in Westerns. I liked the move but the director needs some more time to be able to really tell the sort of story he wants to tell, imho.

Other than that I was just trying to hit highlights before they drop Stargate from the rotation.  Got to the Battle of Antarctica last night as am satisfied for now.

Really random.

A River Runs Through It (1992):  It was good. Surprised I never saw it before.  I looked up tunes by Cliquot Eskimo Club afterwards.

During Thanksgiving weekend - Casino Royale followed by Quantum of Solace.  First time watching the latter.  Still trying to digest whether it was a good Bond installment or not.  On the one hand, it was sort of confusing and some of the action scenes were overly artsy looking instead of straightforward.  Also, the Bond villain was sort of boring.   OTOH, I liked that they dumped the Bond plot cliche of the secret base, attempting to take over the world  and the moral ambivilance of the CIA and also of Bond himself.  A big plus is that tanned Bond girl Olga Kurelynko (spelling?) is hawt.  Overall, I liked it as it's a different enough installment.

I'm not certain if my version of "weird" is different than someone else's, but I tend to watch a lot of movies that have me questioning my sanity for a lot of the film, then I sink into a deep depression when I go thru the different scenarios on what the director was trying to convey, since I tend to let my imagination run away with me, you see. Charlie Kaufman movies, specifically Synecdoche, NY and I'm Thinking of Ending Things, hit me this way. Josh Trank's Capone was definitely weird, but showing someone sliding into dementia is bound to be weird. For straight-up weird, while nothing beats Mulholland Drive, David Hamilton's Bilitisand Pasolini's Salo, or 120 Days of Sodom bothstruck me as super-weird but that may just be the product of my expectations for those flicks.
 
2021-11-29 11:46:58 AM  
The value of Mulholland Drive is that by investing two hours, you are immune to the false hope of narrative coherence from cynical frauds like J J Abrams and his endless Lost plot lines.
 
2021-11-29 11:49:28 AM  
Weirdest film i ever saw was "Lost Highway", by -surprise - David Lynch. When we left the theater, my friends asked "What was that movie about?" My response was, "It was about a 2 hour waste of our time."
 
2021-11-29 11:59:12 AM  
On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Not sure if I should even post about it because I couldn't finish it.  I just wanted to say George Lazenby gets an undue amount of blame for this movie.  The whole thing blows from crappy editing, weird foley work, bad sound mixing, directionless scripting (I literally watched longer trying to figure out what the plot was), and bizarre costume choices.  Sean Connery couldn't have come close to salvaging it and I don't think we even saw what Lazenby could do as Bond.

Born to Race -also shown as "Born 2 Race" on the Pluto app, It was surprisingly good.  It's not great, but I was after car porn and I got it along with some decent production value.  It's a pretty check the box movie with about half the plot coming from Tokyo Drift and the rest being so generic it could have been lifted from any sports movie.  Plus the head elf from Santa Clause 3 is in it as a high school kid.  Kid gets in trouble for racing, moves to live with estranged father, new town has surprisingly robust car culture complete with large state-wide drag racing competition, local bully fights hero over a girl, etc.  No one cares, you're here to see a second gen WRX drag race a hot pink '68 Challenger.  5/10 for a movie, 8/10 for a car movie

Cry-Baby - John Waters riffing off of Hairspray for another movie.  Made me think about how weird John Waters casts movies.  Traci Lords, who 5 years earlier had been the biggest name in pornography was cast as the one member of the Cry-Baby gang that doesn't have any kind of physical relationship with someone.  Lots of great touches like the conformist squares performing exclusively established songs a'la a Jukebox musical while the non-conformist drapes (he made that term up, right?) perform original songs for the film.

Favorite weird film: Kind of hard depending on where you draw the line for "weird".  The Big Lebowski is awesome, but moderately weird at most.  Everything I'm thinking of amounts to "so bad it's good" stuff like Llamageddon (batshiat because they couldn't afford to make sense) or stuff that's more niche or specifically weird in one way like A Prarie Home Companion is kind of weird, and pretty good.  I was just talking about John Waters so Pink Flamingos should be name dropped, but that's like bringing up Die Hard in an action movie thread: it barely counts.

I run a personal psychotronic movie review website. As such, I watch a lot of bizarre films.

First ones that came to mind when I saw this discussion were:

The Dead Center (2018) - a slow burn cosmic horror that I have not heard anyone else talk about.

The Bay (2012) - a movie that gave me nightmares for the first time in years.

Triangle (2009) - a movie that may be perceived as marginally good on first viewing but gets better with every viewing.

...and, of couse, the #1 cult comedy of all time, Repo Man (1984).

...and, of couse, the #1 cult comedy of all time, Repo Man (1984).


Repo Man (1984) is regarded by many as the best movie to come out of 1984. That makes it one of the greatest movies ever. Personally, I would put it at number 3, right behind Fury Road, and The Searchers.

Fury Road would probably be my favorite 'weird' movie.
 
2021-11-29 12:44:46 PM  
No Time to Die - was surprised at how good it ended up being.  Ana de Armas is absolutely stunning, so it had that going for it too.
 
2021-11-29 1:48:30 PM  
What I watched:
No Time to Die - One of the top 5 Daniel Craig Bond movies! I'd say it was better than Spectre but not as good as Casino RoyaleSkyfall is number one. Overall I'd give it a C+, good ending for Bond.
Shang-Chi - It was Chinese food for the eyes. It filled you up with very little substance and left you hungry for something else later. Still not the worst of the MCU, that definitely goes to Thor: The Dark World. C-
Hawkeye - First two episodes, not bad but, like the Disney+ MCU series they take about 3 episodes or so to really grab me. Hailee Steinfeld is lots of fun. Cautiously optimistic so far. B-

King Richard (2021)
The story of Venus and Serena Williams and how their parents raised and trained them. It was interesting, and the two young actresses who played Venus and Serena were charming. Will Smith plays their father. Worth seeing.

House of Gucci (2021)
I liked it, but parts of it were campy, and some of the acting seemed ridiculous. Lady Gaga and Adam Driver were fine, though. The story was preposterous, but it's true.

Apocalypto (2006)
Mel Gibson directed this movie about the end of the Mayan civilization. The actors all speak a Mayan language. It was fascinating, but it did bother me that both the ethnic group and the century were wrong. I think once you realize this was filmed as a fable, or a myth, rather than as a straightforward story, then the film makes more sense. On Prime.

I attended the Saskatoon Fantastic Film Festival last week, and 'fantastic' seemed to refer to weird, bizarre, or horrifically bloody films.

Alien on Stage (2020, England)
A documentary about bus drivers who put on an amateur performance of Alien, and are then invited to perform it on the West End. Some parts were hysterically funny.

All Sorts (2021, USA)
A fantasy based on a boring, mind-numbing, pointless job where nothing ever gets done and the incompetent bosses never seem to notice. Pretty good.

See for Me (2021, Canada)
An exciting thriller set in a remote mansion in upstate New York. The owner goes away for a few days, and a gang breaks in to rob the place, not realizing the owner had hired a cat sitter. The cat sitter is blind, and is played by a blind, nonbinary actor.

Don't Say Its Name (2021, Canada)
Filmed in an Indigenous community in northern Alberta by an Indigenous director and cast. A mining company wants to come in and strip mine the area. Some people on the reserve are for it, some are against. The supporters of the mine start getting attacked by a mysterious spirit. Interesting, some horror scenes.

Slumber Party Massacre (2021, South Africa, in English with a Canadian director)
A slasher movie set in the woods with a group of teenage girls. This is a satirical take on the genre. It's funny, very gory, well worth seeing if you like horror movies.

Baby Assassins (2021, Japan)
Two teenage girls working as hired killers are ordered to get ordinary jobs to fit in better. The scenes in the maid cafe are hysterically funny and a stinging indictment of modern Japanese society; the rest of the movie has some good fight scenes. It was a bit too bloody for my taste. Definitely weird.

Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes (2021, Japan)
A group of friends discovers they can see two minutes into the future. This sci-fi movie was made on a low budget, filmed on phones, and made to look like it was all one take. It won the People's Choice Award. Definitely weird.

Masking Threshold (2021, Austria, but in English)
You never see the main character's face - everything is shown from his perspective. He slowly loses his mind. There is a lot of very interesting macro photography. This is an example of body horror. Really bloody, definitely weird.

The Sadness (2021, Taiwan)
A highly infectious virus spreads quickly through Taiwan, causing its victims to lose all inhibitions and act out their most violent impulses. Rue Morgue magazine called it "the most violent and depraved zombie movie ever made."
 
2021-11-29 2:52:08 PM  
Hawkeye-Started slow, but picking up steam in the 3rd episode.

Home alone from Wed afternoon to Sunday night..Watched all MCU movies again.

The Wheel of Time.
Yes I did like the books unlike most Farkers.
The show is not 100% the same. Some differences.
A surprise or 2.

An earlier Paul Thomas Anderson thread forced me to relent and to give Phantom Thread a go.  I found it to be a studiously deliberate movie that swayed from quiet intimacy in cramped locales to the cacophony of grandiose pageants, parties and balls while also serving as a reflection of the protagonists pendulating mental states that only can be steadied by a certain specific fungus. At the end, I found myself wondering how this would have turned out if Wes Anderson had directed it instead and whether I would have found any great differences between the versions. Overall, it  was well worth the 2+ hours.

As for weird movies, nothing comes close to:

The worst thing about Apocalypto is how it's the only entry in its field of historical drama.  Mind you, I love movies about the Romans but I'd love to see more of our shared human history get big budget treatments like Apocalypto.

Just thought you'd enjoy knowing that it's there.

I won't bury the lede for once: Saturday night, Mrs. F and I watched the original Ghostbusters (1984) to prepare for seeing the new movie, and maybe a little bit because I had this great headline greenlit. I got the movie as part of a deal on a two-pack with the sequel maybe 7 or 8 years ago. Then Sunday night I saw seemingly the same edition of the first movie by itself in Target for only $5, so maybe the deal I got was pretty standard.

I'm pretty sure this is only my third time seeing the movie ever. I saw it once when I was like four and could only remember being tired and seeing Slimer pig out on the room service cart food, and vaguely something about Stay Puft. 99% of what I knew about the franchise was from watching the animated series. Then I checked it out from the library around age 18 and borrowed the sequel as well on the following visit.

This viewing I'm paying a lot more attention to the characters and the jokes. Characters because the part of my brain that understands such a thing as personality has grown exponentially since I was 18 and jokes because comedy is kind of my thing. The big thing I really notice is how Murray's and Ackroyd's characters can be compared and contrasted. Murray is so skeptical that I expect him to be totally blown away when he sees his first ghost. Ackroyd seems almost exactly halfway between Murray's attempted smooth-talker and Ramis' detached academic personality. "Which Ghostbuster Are You?" would make a great clickbait quiz. I'd probably be Ray.

Another thing I noticed was Janine. She's actually kind of hot in that "librarian" kind of way. I think I vaguely remember noticing that from my teen rewatch. Definitely not something I'd notice at four or in the cartoon series. Maybe that latter one combined with her really nasally New York accent is why I never noticed her before.

The movie is funny, but not quite as funny as I expected it to be. I think I blame Fark for reminding me of the jokes every chance it could get, which sort of ruins the comedic timing. I've definitely heard the jokes on Fark far, far more than I've seen them in the movie. Maybe the second one will have more surprises.

Overall, the movie really holds up and I can't wait to see the new one. An interesting side note is that my DVD copy has what I described as "the coolest DVD menu of 2005." It's pretty decent, with menu items stuck to the sides of buildings and Stay Puft trotting past in the background, but the CGI is pretty crummy and there's a surprisingly small amount of bonus features for something with such a big cult following.

Friday night I was with the family and we watched the NatGeo documentary Submarine I-52: Search for WWII Gold.  Super relevant to all of us because my grandfather was serving on the ship that sank I-52 in the Atlantic. It was a Japanese cargo sub loaded with gold, rubber, and opium that was looking to run the Allied blockade and trade with Germany. My mom told about how my grandfather's main part of retelling it was always about farktons of rubber floating to the surface at once. The documentary is about a 1998 attempt to find the sub wreckage and retrieve the gold.

We get to hear all about the situation of its sinking and my grandfather's ship, but the farking brand new DVD has small scratches on it somehow and won't play beyond about the halfway point. Fark, fark, fark. It's probably the disc and not the player, but I'm a little suspicious of this player that came with the house that's an ancient relic that's the size of a vinyl record player. I vow to see what I can do with it when I get home. Then today I open the case and it's not in there. Probably left it in the shiatty DVD player in the vacation home during the chaos of trying to make it work. Fark.

At least we got to preface it with a short video interview documentary I did with my grandfather for a college project just months before he died. That's the closest Mrs. F or my BIL are ever going to get to meeting him, so it's really good that I have that. I decide that I'd definitely rather have a working copy of that than the NatGeo documentary.

Sometime last week Mrs F and I made progress on Squid Game.  It's getting really farking intense and it took a lot of self-control to not stay up to midnight on a weeknight binge watching the rest of the season. Two episodes left.
 
2021-11-29 4:57:10 PM  
We finally got around to watching the latest Bond film. Without spoiling things, good.

Annie Potts got the best joke in the movie: "I've quit better jobs that this."

The first time I watched Mulholland Drive was on mushrooms, post-peak, with a girlfriend who was just figuring out she was bisexual.

"Whoa," I said.

"Let's watch it again," she said.

/we did

Not much watching this week.

The Color Purple (1985) - I continued my watch of Spielberg flicks I have not seen.  It sucked to be a black woman in the south at the start of the 20th century.  And then had a treacle sweet ending.  Not much above the average hallmark movie nowadays.  Rating C-.

I also watched the first few episodes of Hawkeye.  It kind of has a Shane Black vibe that I'm liking, although with the edges filed off.  Decent so far.

Favorite weird movie, maybe Meet The Feebles.  Pretty batshiat insane and weird, and not as impenetrable as all the Lynch movies people are mentioning.

AKA  "Operation Red Point", Henry Silva and his crew are off to Norway to stop the Germans from learning about radar from a downed Spitfire they got a hold of.  Formulaic but all kinds of OK as far as these Italian/American mash ups go.  Dario Argento wrote it too.
 
2021-11-29 7:09:54 PM  
I watched the first two eps of Hawkeye, and then Shang Chi Wednesday morning last week because I awoke irredeemably early and couldn't get back to sleep.

I was entertained.

Friday after work I finally watched Baby Driver, which had been sitting in my queue for a while.  I'm glad I was finally in the right headspace to watch a movie of that type, because I really enjoyed it.

Yesterday I watched Coco, which I'd seen in theaters but not since.

Oh, and this morning I was again awake far earlier than sensible, and I watched Red Notice on Netflix.

Not high art but fun, and I was pleasantly surprised by the twists along the way.

Not exactly "weird" but certainly not ever "Hollywood"....The Spirit of the Beehive.  I'm sure it would be much richer if I was more tuned into Spanish history and culture, so as to pick up on things, but it was still quite enjoyable as a sort of meander.

Just caught that one a few months ago myself.  Yeah, that one didn't just take a turn for the weird it swerved to the batshiat.  Boots Riley needs to do more of whatever the hell he wants to do because it does it pretty damned well.  Him being given free rein on an MCU Black Panther movie would be some shiat to see.

Nocturnal Animals- Susan (Amy Adams) is a deeply unhappy Los Angeles art gallery owner. Her estranged ex husband Edward (Jake Gyllenhaal) sends her the manuscript to his novel. We see the novel as she reads it, along with her reactions and flashbacks to their relationship. Good performances, the sheriff in the novel is great. (I don't know his name but he's a familiar face.)

Overall, well-made and enjoyable watch but definitely not a feel-good movie.

What Did Jack Do?-speaking of weird... Short film by David Lynch about a detective (played by Lynch himself) interrogating a capuchin monkey in a train station. Quite funny at moments but I have no idea if that's intentional. Also has a chicken and a musical number (and coffee and chain-smoking, obviously).

Oh, and Bill and Ted Face the Music-It's a Bill and Ted movie. I loved the backstory of their falling out with Death. The ending was corny as he'll but I liked it.

And I'm guessing whoever designed the killer robot is a fan of Dragonball Z.
