  1. This film is an amazing anti-war film, and the cinematography is just stunning.

Mother! Starring Jennifer Lawrence.

A weird movie about a cycle that repeats itself over and over, at least that’s how I saw it. I later found out that the movie is full of Judeo-Christian symbolism and themes, but since I’m not a religious person all that was lost on me. I also wonder if Jennifer Lawrence did topless for real or they used a body double with Lawrence’s face superimposed.

I think Jennifer Lawrence has already done topless for real 😉

(she obviously didn’t like the invasion of privacy, or having security on her phone, along with a host of other actors and celebrities)
 

A good and talented actress - a captivating quality to her, even when in films that don’t really appeal.

I don’t think the movie was bad at all, just weird.

Exporting Raymond. It’s Phil Rosenthal’s documentary about pitching and trying to get Everybody Loves Raymond made in Russia. Pretty funny and very interesting! Interestingly enough too it’s now the longest running adaptation of an American series in Russia.

Last night I finally watched The Sorcerer (1977) after a friend recommended it to me. A very enjoyable, nail biter of a film. If you haven’t seen it yourself I recommend you check it out.

I remember reading that despite a positive response from audiences and critics alike, the movie was box office failure.

I’ll probably watch it sometime for the Tangerine Dream score alone.

The soundtrack is great.

Well at the time of its release it was both a critical and commercial flop, but since then it has been re-evaluated and has been hailed as a overlooked masterpiece from the 70s. The director William Friedkin said in the bonus interview on the disc that it was released around the same time as Star Wars, and that film just buried Sorcerer.

I’m glad I was able to see it the old fashioned way, a friend recommending a film, reminds me of the way I used to find new music, someone in the record shop you’re familiar with hands you a album and goes “You might like this, it’s pretty cool”. I went in with no expectations and found a gem.

It sucked. Such a disappointment. It felt like they didn’t have any idea what to do with the story. The plot is nonsensical even by Bill & Ted standards. There was so much potential in a third installment, and they wasted that potential on this forgettable trash.

Why is space-time literally collapsing unless they write one single harmonious song? Why is it one specific song (allegedly before the cop-out ending)? They already broadcast to the entire world at the end of the second one. Their music brought piece on Earth, it wasn’t some magical song that literally saves the universe from destruction.

And somehow the people in the future… didn’t know what happened? Like, how am I supposed to suspend my disbelief? Why did they think this script was good enough to spend a twenty-five million dollar budget on? Why did they waste all that money on crappy CGI effects that make me wanna puke in a story that doesn’t need to exist? And on a movie that looks, visually, like crap.

And the plot they went with just repeats things that happened in the first movie but boring. Hey, everyone remembers when they grabbed historical figure in a time machine, let’s throw that in there! But this time they don’t kidnap them as if it were a funny movie, they just, politely convince them to come with? And remember when they were sent to Hell? Yeah, let’s just do that again but make Hell infinitely less interesting. That’ll be great. I mean, come on, Bogus Journey was almost nothing like the first one. They’ve traveled through time, they’ve been to the afterlife, what’s the one thing they didn’t do? Space? Why didn’t we get Bill & Ted’s Space STATION? Show us a story about how their music reaches other planets, after they’ve given Earth a prosperous future, because that already happened.

This movie isn’t funny. There are humorous scenes on occasion, but they seriously failed at making a comedy on par with the first two. Most of the film is just mean-spirited drama mixed with some awkward attempts at humor. In the original films, nearly every scene, nearly every line of dialogue, was funny. They were filled to the brim with jokes. It was almost always played for laughs. Every time they meet their future selves in this movie, it’s just anger and drama. Keanu Reeves also just isn’t there at all. He throws off the chemistry by giving a very bored, phoned-in feeling performance. He didn’t seem to have the character in him, and it makes me wonder if they even re-watched the originals before production.

I was hoping for better from the original creators of the series.

You’re, like, the first person I’ve seen anywhere that didn’t think it was excellent. I’m surprised. I thought it was the most successful “decades too late” comedy sequel I’ve ever seen.

I’m surprised by the ridiculous amount of praise it’s getting.

It’s not like it has zero redeeming qualities though. I liked their daughters as characters, but they were kind of boring because they were too intelligent. They copied the dopey Bill & Ted mannerisms, but they’re not written dumb enough.

The only “decades too late” comedy sequel I’ve liked is Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.
