Phantom Menace

Despite it’s major flaws, it’s a better film than Attack of the Clones.

My college roommate recently rewatched it and thought the same thing.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.

I recently found my old DVD for Titanic (1997)

It is a much slower film than I remembered. Not even just because it’s 194 minutes, but the first half of the movie just drags on and on to establish the dynamic of Jack and Rose. It still has some decent quips and moments, though. For some reason, the “Nearer My God to Thee” scene in particular really got to me.

6.5/10

I’m amazed there has never been a crazy fanedit mashup of all Titanic films into one. It would be surreal! 😉

Oh I’d bet. Only problem I can think of is that to the best of my knowledge, the real surreal works to put in aren’t necessarily well preserved, at least not in a consumer friendly manner (aside from that one where a giant octopus saves the ship. That one might be easier to find.)

Giant octopus? Is that the infamous animated one where everybody gets off safely?

Just watched the 1985 movie Real Genius , have seen it dozens of times but never really paid attention to the credits until today and was floored to see all the Star Wars alumni that worked on it …Richard Chew as editor ,who also was an editor on the original Star Wars , Alex Tavoularis is credited as illustrator and he also did Storyboards for Star Wars , Apogee ,which was the effects studio of John Dykstra and Ron Cobb who designed a lot of the cantina aliens ! I guess they could not resist the opportunity to troll Ronald Reagan for his strategic defense initiative which he dubbed Star Wars around the time this movie was made.

IIRC, it was political critics and the press who hung that name on it, much to George Lucas’ dismay. Reagan did invoke SW imagery in his speeches though.

Yeah , and he did say The Force Is With Us in one of his speeches . I also found it ironic that so many Star Wars alumni worked on the film as it’s central plot revolves around the characters unknowingly being tasked with creating a space laser that is basically like the Death Star superlaser .

Star Trek Beyond. The first film came across to me as mediocre but there was the potential for improvement with the sequels because they had a good cast. Into Darkness dashed any such hopes by rehashing TWOK within a mindless action film that just happened to utilise the Star Trek franchise as marketing packaging. When STB was released, I stayed at home after the past two disappointments and caught it on TV recently.

It was yet another awful, disappointing film that bore little connection to its source of inspiration. The first few minutes gave me false hope that this entry might actually buck the trend but it went downhill rapidly with yet another mindless and soulless plot. Idris Elba was wasted in his role as the antagonist and STB does have a few, brilliant moments that made me smile but it was jarring to witness them and think of what the film could have been with better writing and direction. Paramount has cancelled the fourth instalment. If Bad Robot cannot muster better than this then it’s probably for the best.

3.5 out of 10.

Trying to jam Kirk’s dad in there because Hemsworth is a bankable star now was not a good idea. Thanks a lot greedy studio suits!

The movie Scarface 1931 is an important film to watch because it warns against organised and disorganised crime. A must see.

The 1932 original is overshadowed by Michael Mann’s 1983 remake. Which is a shame because it’s definitely a thought provoking film, particularly when you consider that Prohibition was repealed just a year later. I had no idea about the alternate ending. Unfortunately, there’s no Blu-ray available. With any luck, BBC Two (or Four) might show it in HD…

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (2019)

Wow. A Godzilla movie made by Godzila fans for Godzilla fans. This was SPECTACULAR. If you’re a fan of Godzilla you HAVE to see this. Also, if you can you need to see this in a full size IMAX. Long live the king.

Help back OMNO!

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS (2019)

LOVED IT.
My face hurt by the end because I was smiling the entire time.
I’ve seen reviews complaining about the human characters being weak. I couldn’t disagree more. All three leads had wonderful arcs (recognizable arcs, sure, but well executed) important things to do that impact the story and were a joy to watch. I also loved the minor characters and villains.
This thing is well made and it’s absolutely WILD. Go see it.

The film Godzilla King Of The Monsters is an amazing story for fans of this mega-franchise. This movie also has the honour of inspiring me to create this saying: long live the king until god comes a knockin.

I saw it too, and I thought it was the most ridiculous installment since Godzilla Final Wars. Definitively not the worst installment, but still far below the average Toho film. I’m surprised the audience reaction is so positive. The most I can say without getting into spoilers, it’s that it’s glorified fan fiction.

Society- The directorial debut of genre producer Brian Yuzna strains mightily against its limited budget and slow first two acts to deliver total surrealist chaos in its big finale. It’s decidedly a film whose ambitions exceed its resources, but given how many bigger-budget films play it safe, it’s hard begrudge it for that. It’s an intelligent piece of caustic social commentary, and if it’s reach exceeds its grasp, you have to admire Yuzna’s wild imagination and attempt at saying something.

13 Assassins- Cult provocateur Takashi Miike’s remake of a 1960 film (To my knowledge, one never released in America) as a sort of kinetic Kurosawa homage. It’s a bit generic, particularly in its rather slow first half and the characterization is occasionally thin, but Miike has lots of fun with the extended battle sequence finale. It’s flirts with social commentary but mostly just wants gory thrills as only Miike can deliver them, and does so with lots gusto and style.

One of my favorite films of all time and by far my favorite Robert Redford film. Considering the amount of time I’ve spent reading anything and everything, I’ve felt a kinship with Joe Turner for decades. Also for me, my favorite Faye Dunaway film. She’s perfect in this. LOVE her character.

An absolute 5 out of 5 Sparrow Hawks.
