The director of A Bigger Splash is Luca Guadagnino who made the quite good I Am Love, so def seeing A Bigger Splash.

I watched Synecdoche New York two days back and decided to give Anomalisa a pass.

guys if you're not hating on days of heaven you're hating malick wrong

carly rae jetson (thomp), Monday, 7 March 2016 00:27 (three years ago) link

its like if you're really going to hate oasis you can't just start hating with 'be here now'. you have to commit to your hate. it's like hating only the late u2: fuck that.

i am love is a garbage movie for garbage people

anomalisa is a great title for a mediocre mid-90s indie record

carly rae jetson (thomp), Monday, 7 March 2016 00:29 (three years ago) link

dlh's thing on youth and esl kinda makes me want to see it, or at least make a movie that uses the same trick to some effect

carly rae jetson (thomp), Monday, 7 March 2016 00:30 (three years ago) link

Non-english speaking people has been doing this for decades.

Frederik B, Monday, 7 March 2016 00:54 (three years ago) link

'Oh look at this stupid director, he isn't even a native English speaker, and he still thinks he can make a global film! lol, what a weirdo.'

'Meanwhile, isn't Eddie Redmayne amazing as a Dane, let's give him all the oscars!'

i think there was more to dlh's claim than that tbh

carly rae jetson (thomp), Monday, 7 March 2016 01:19 (three years ago) link

Anything with "today's comedy superstars" US version - people I generally find unfunny (Louis CK, Tina Fey, The Amy's Schumer and Poehler) ---everything I've seen them in up to now a resounding dud so no thanks.
Anything by Lanthimos
"Anomalisa" was a real chore.

Also - no more Baumbach. Or Ben Stiller ( he just seems fed up in everything).

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Monday, 7 March 2016 01:49 (three years ago) link

obv non-native english speakers direct movies in english all the time. feel like writing movies in english is at least rarer but of course there is nothing silly about that either. it can just be noticeable is all, and when your leads have voices as distinct and culturally situated as michael caine and harvey keitel it's more noticeable. you sometimes see a milder version of this quality when yanks/brits write for brits/yanks.

Youth was so wack

anglos with derpy phasis (wins), Monday, 7 March 2016 12:19 (three years ago) link

Youth and A Bigger Splash are both showing at the local arthouse but they both sound so boooring. Youth in particular and not even a Maradona cameo can make it appealing.

Anomalisa is great and everyone should watch it btw

i;m thinking about thos Beans (Michael B), Monday, 7 March 2016 15:12 (three years ago) link

It isn't the 'real' Maradona in Youth, fwiw

Chicamaw (Ward Fowler), Monday, 7 March 2016 15:37 (three years ago) link

Kinda looking forward to nu-Malick. Partly because I haven't caught anything he has put out at the cinema so I didn't get annoyed. Plus the new one has good post-cinema conversation potential.

Oliver Stone's Snowden thing

What's the point of that?!

story ticks so many Stone boxes he probably feels obliged to run thru the motions

As long as he can shoehorn in the Cuban gay mafia its ok I guess.

Gonna pay p close attention to my studious avoidance of Christopher Nolan's ouevre from now on, I think I might not watch interstellar this week

Tom Hiddleston double; High-Rise/I Saw The Light

calzino, Tuesday, 8 March 2016 19:44 (three years ago) link

High Rise (Ben Wheatley, 2015) - say no to adaptations of unfilmable books. Can see why greats like Nic Roeg left this alone for a guy who I see has directed television to pick up.

xyzzzz__, Friday, 18 March 2016 11:08 (three years ago) link

I see nic roeg has directed television

anglos with derpy phasis (wins), Friday, 18 March 2016 11:11 (three years ago) link

A lot of it in the mid-90s. Britpop was a tough time for everybody.

xyzzzz__, Friday, 18 March 2016 11:19 (three years ago) link

I don't see how High Rise is unfilmable tbh

i;m thinking about thos Beans (Michael B), Friday, 18 March 2016 16:46 (three years ago) link

lol at being bothered to research Wheatley enough to know this, but not bothered enough to consider his actual film work.

But hey, it's the negative thread so carry on as you are. Sadly I can't think of any more current things to hate on, I'm sure I will be back soon though.

emil.y, Friday, 18 March 2016 17:37 (three years ago) link

Wasn't doing "research", just looked at a couple of wiki pages.

While everyone else wasted their time on British cinema I watched Manoel De Oliveira's last film. A real, proper film.

Wheatley's "A Field In England" is freaky brilliance. Am looking forward to watching "High Rise".

That French film that isn't about Florence Foster Jenkins

Do you mean 'Frears'?

Frederik B, Saturday, 19 March 2016 14:23 (three years ago) link

Haha omg just realised that there's an actual ffj biopic coming out as well! Not seeing that either tbh

Rainer Weirder Faßbooker (wins), Wednesday, 23 March 2016 21:14 (three years ago) link

He, yeah, and it's directed by someone whose name could have been an auto-correct from French. I still don't really get what film you're talking about, though?

Frederik B, Wednesday, 23 March 2016 21:36 (three years ago) link

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marguerite_(film)

Wiki tells me it's from last year but it just came out hers.

Do we have a thread listing examples of the turner and hooch/k9 phenomenon? Feel like every message board must have one. And it is a bank holiday.

Rainer Weirder Faßbooker (wins), Thursday, 24 March 2016 15:25 (three years ago) link

I think we did have a thread for something of the sort, but can't for the life of me think what it would have been called.

this otoh is not good enough, it is good friday and I have nowhere to observe that one time there were two magician movies

Rainer Weirder Faßbooker (wins), Friday, 25 March 2016 01:40 (three years ago) link

Start a new one anyway! If someone else remembers they can link it up, but it's probably from 2003 or something.

emil.y, Friday, 25 March 2016 01:42 (three years ago) link

And actually I think I might just be thinking about 'animal versions of buddy cop movies' (b/c of the examples you used) rather than 'two films about the same thing coming out at the same time'.

emil.y, Friday, 25 March 2016 01:43 (three years ago) link

sorry I wasn't clear!

Lots of docs like this - I mean I'm sure its fine but it could also be a 20 min segment on BBC News 24.

Anyway, a lot of 'this will be in Storyville in six months' and then its on it and I won't watch anyway.

Didn’t watch the Dylan thing but will see this at some point, if it weren’t on Netflix I’d watch it sooner

How was your boy genius Spielberg's intellectual property wankfest Ready Player One again?

Tsar Bombadil (James Morrison), Monday, 30 September 2019 10:36 (two weeks ago) link

Far fewer than 210 minutes, for starters.

Pauline Male (Eric H.), Monday, 30 September 2019 16:46 (two weeks ago) link

So are all of Tarantino’s films, except for the sole all-in-one print of Kill Bill, which Morbs didn’t fly to Austin or Paris to see in 2011.

shorter than the Irishman: ready player one, all Tarantino

longer than the Irishman: satantango, all lav diaz, flying from New York to Paris to watch kill bill

YouGov to see it (wins), Monday, 30 September 2019 17:27 (two weeks ago) link

Earlier this year I sat through 1900 (5+ hours) and didn't even stretch my legs at the intermission. But this year's crop of Oscar bait is going to have to be pretty weak to get me to see The Irishman in a theater.

Anne Hedonia (j.lu), Monday, 30 September 2019 17:54 (two weeks ago) link

Turns out there were two screenings in Philly in 2013 - Morbs could have taken the Megabus for the matinée and been back in NYC for dinner.

flying from New York to Paris to watch kill bill

iirc you were the ilxor who was going to fly to New York to watch Eight Hours Don't Make a Day!

Also, not quite ALL Lav Diaz.

Ward Fowler, Monday, 30 September 2019 18:45 (two weeks ago) link

Well I mean that wasn’t why I flew to New York. But I’d do it again even tho both flight and screening were longer than the Irishman, ready player one, and all Tarantino
