What Happened, Miss Simone? (2015) - A documentary about the life and legend Nina Simone, an American singer, pianist, and civil rights activist labeled the "High Priestess of Soul."

I didn't know much about Nina Simone going in so I thought this was a great introduction to not just her music, but her lifelong struggles. 4/5



Great film! Although I’d like to see a documentary in the future that examines her music for a change. Miss Simone’s body of work is one of the most versatile discographies. It would be nice to give it the same seriousness her peers usually get when they get talked abou.

i dunno, man...i just finished reading 'going clear' last night, along with watching a good amount of youtube videos regarding scientology...the jury is still out on whether my respect for cruise as an ACTOR has been diminished or reinforced through the process; cuz he sure is a ding dong. but, whatevs. he seems like he likes himself quite a bit.



The actor's chosen religion shouldn't influence your enjoyment of his movies. All religions are wacky anyway so it's not fair to say he's a "ding doing" for believing in whatever he believes in. Besides, it's not as though the characters he's playing are scientologists.


i'm not sweating him as a scientologist...i think he's a ding dong cuz he comes off as a ding dong (i did see one clip of him on the david letterman show in which he seemed to break out of his 'tom cruiseness' that was rather endearing). i mean, scientology subjects its adherents to some pretty heinous shit; but that ain't on cruise. it's a cult of personal ambition and ego and self satisfaction. more power to him, if that's what makes him happy.

as far as the entertainment he produces, i could take or leave most of it (although his performance in 'magnolia' is one of my favorite actings ever), but i may have a new found respect for his acting ability knowing how far removed from his actual personality his performances are; or, i just might not really give a shit.

anyhow, glad to see you're well, emma...



I suppose he makes the kind of movies that you either like or you don't. A lot of his characters are very similar people with very similar motivation. I love most of his movies though so the fact that they're all similar is great for me. And when he does branch out in things like Magnolia he proves that he's a very good actor when he wants to be. I'm sure we'll see more of that side as he gets older and action movie roles are harder to come by. Until then though I'm happy to see Mission Impossible and Jack Reacher sequels for as long as he's able to make them.

And thank you smile

i don't discount him because he's tom cruise...i like a few things he's done. 'oblivion', 'edge of tomorrow', 'far and away', 'legend', 'all the right moves', 'rain man'....shit, probably a few others; and definitely more than i would've thought. i guess he didn't ruin 'eyes wide shut'...looking at his imdb page, he's fer sure had more hits than misses.

Deadpool 2 (2018)

Although I liked it for the most part, the raunchy, breaking-the-fourth-wall humor is beginning to wear a little thin. 3/5

liquid sky (1982) 2/5 this is my second crack at liquid sky, and i didn't find it any more interesting or compelling this go around. it's an ugly, dull, & (despite the garish colors & outfits) very visually bland movie. there are no interesting shots or scenes, the characters are blank. even the soundtrack is weak by my reckoning - very repetitive (not always a bad thing in my books) and (this is the deal-breaker) shrill. this thing has stubbornly remained a cult item, loved by many apparently. i has the outline of something i'd generally love, but i am settling on an opinion of hatred more or less, and i now never, ever want to watch it again.

love exposure (2008) 5/5 after catching 'why don't you play in hell' a few months back, it became suddenly important to me to see as many sion sono movies as possible.when i saw a running time on his most highly rated film of almost four hours, my enthusiasm waned. a lot. but i decided i could always try to spread it over two nights. unnecessary. except for a little hiccup in the last hour perhaps, this is one of the most perfectly paced & entertaining films i've ever seen, moving all over the place from almost sit-com goofiness to surreal absurdity to slasher violence. a perfect film, if i dare say so myself.

psychokinesis (2018) 3/5 yeon sang-ho's follow-up to the great 'train to busan.' amusing & good-natured in a slightly sitcom-ish way, but ultimately a bit dull and repetitive. even at a fairly brisk 100 minutes i felt it overstayed its welcome, with too thin a story to warrant a full feature running time. ok, but this is definitely not another train to busan.

i caught that myself earlier this week, & i didn't laugh much. if a comedy doesn't make me laugh, i can't really call it a success, i guess. it had it's moments, but i suppose it just suffers from the diminishing returns that tend to trip up comedy sequels: what's funny & fresh the first go around feels like a bit of a retread now. 3/5

You should watch the 6 hour cut. I've actually never seen the shorter 4 hour version but the full 6 hour movie is really good. You'd probably have to be really in the mood to watch it though. 6 hours is a big ask but if you rate the 4 hour version so highly, you'll probably enjoy the full cut.

Superman: The Movie (1978)

Still for my twocents the greatest comic book film ever made.

starstarstarstar.5


Troy (2004)

In hindsight, it was a sword-and-sandals epic with anti-Bush/Iraq War overtones, and a cautionary tale for mixing politics and religion. But I enjoy watching it every summer, and Peter O'Toole puts on a clinic in his scene with Brad Pitt.

Django Unchained (2012)


Grindhouse, blaxploitative revenge fantasy, with a great performance of Christoph Waltz, who probably makes the difference, and really good turn from Jamie Foxx. Good performance from Leo as well.

Christopher Reeve will never be beaten as Superman. That's a solid 5 star movie for me.

It drags a bit between Acts II and III but it's still the GOAT of comic book flicks. Reeve is the definitive Superman.

psshh...best picture? really? i've seen this movie like 9 times under 9 different titles. utterly predictable. watch the trailer, done. 2/5

my%2Bfriend%2Bdahmer.jpg


i liked the comic mo betta. the movie paints dahmer much more sympathetically. really good, nonetheless. i have a particular affection for the setting/locations, as it's the town i grew up in. 3.5/5


images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR3ElkUOIVc-aCWYmx7449yEvWo-XjfbpKWnIEeZbQiPCwsKz3j

should've won all the oscars. renewed my affection for james ivory. heartwrenching and beautifully acted. 5/5


arthur-movie-poster-1981-1020221016.jpg

filmstruck has a liza minelli collection going, and i've been wanting to see this one for a while. dudley moore is fantastic. 5/5


MV5BNzc4ODYwMjEwNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTg1Mjg1NDM@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_.jpg

the female lead was a little lackluster, but otherwise quite a touching film. 4/5

I know lol

I grew up with Reeve and loved it as a kid but I think Cavill surpassed him in the looks department and depth of the character.
But then again there's this moment where the guy looks just like Reeve:

Henry Cavill is a better looking guy but I think Christopher Reeve makes for a more handsome Superman. I don't know how to make sense of that but that's how I feel biggrin

I just think Reeve is the better actor and his Superman was more three-dimensional than Cavill's.

Don't get me wrong, I really like what Cavill brings to the role. I'd like to see what Cavill could do with a better filmmaker. Reeve had a superb director in Donner. Cavill's Supe films have all been messy in one way or another.

Snyder even shot a photo of Cavill in Reeve's suit.

i'm hopefully catching it this weekend. very much looking forward to it. i think i've seen some rosemary's baby comparisons popping up on twitter, and i think that's a lot more exciting to me than another exorcist retread.


the green fog (2017) 4/5 guy maddin's 'interpretation' of hitchcock's vertigo, recreated through footage from old movies & tv.

wonderfully odd, naturally, as one would expect in something with guy maddin's name attached, but it's a bit more openly silly than you might expect, even goofy, but in a very endearing way.

some people may throw up their hands, perhaps find it a bit of a waste of time, but i thought it was a demented hoot & i absolutely loved it.


coco (2017) 4.5/5 beautiful animation, even by pixar standards, and the ending made me cry like a 4 year old who just dropped his ice cream cone.
