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

Acid Hose (Capitaine Jay Vee), Saturday, 19 March 2016 10:34 (three years ago) link

^that's not the spirit! ;)

Laertiades (imago), Saturday, 19 March 2016 11:45 (three years ago) link

Ok! Here's one: Am avoiding the ugly Batman/Superman bs by that auteur-for-bros Zach Snyder

That French film that isn't about Florence Foster Jenkins

Rainer Weirder Faßbooker (wins), Saturday, 19 March 2016 14:11 (three years ago) link

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?

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.

Clooney stock advice kidnap on air capitalism thriller oh just fuck off

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!

Rainer Weirder Faßbooker (wins), Friday, 25 March 2016 01:46 (three years ago) link

A hearty fu for making me Google it, but it is called money monster

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.

why is hail caesar a 'cast to avoid'? don't coen bros have the same cast in every movie? do you avoid all their films?

de l'asshole (flopson), Tuesday, 21 June 2016 20:33 (three years ago) link

Tale of Tales was a pretty big disappointment to me. I ended up writing about how like Arabian Nights it showed the bankruptcy of it's production country, only with ToT it's kinda inadvertently.

Frederik B, Tuesday, 21 June 2016 20:45 (three years ago) link

lol

Still otm

xyzzz___ you would def not like chevalier, it's pretty much exactly how you'd picture "producer of dogtooth makes a mainstream male-bonding bro comedy" to be (one of the guys even looks a bit like the creepy manchild from the hangover films). I liked it quite a bit tbh but I like things

kasybian (wins), Saturday, 30 July 2016 11:41 (three years ago) link

The Galifianakis similarity must have been intentional, especially as he's the biggest Greek-American star in Hollywood

imago, Saturday, 30 July 2016 11:57 (three years ago) link

Yeah don't need this xp

Just saw the ad for Collateral Beauty. Jeezus!

rhymes with "blondie blast" (cryptosicko), Wednesday, 7 December 2016 00:02 (three years ago) link

just watched the trailer

kids, don't do scientology

keira, never act again

Dave Plaintive rapper with classical training (imago), Wednesday, 7 December 2016 00:22 (three years ago) link

The movie title has been created by the early 90's software used to make Basic Instinct/Primal Fear/Fatal Instinct/Terminal Velocity etc

Another awful trailer: Why Him?

rhymes with "blondie blast" (cryptosicko), Monday, 12 December 2016 16:13 (two years ago) link

This is even more ridiculous than I expected.

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2016/dec/13/collateral-beauty-review-will-smith-helen-mirren-keira-knightley

Will Smith plays a super-brilliant ad exec with a Ted-talking visionary schtick about connectivity. But when he tragically loses his six-year-old to cancer, poor Will becomes a mumbling semi-crazy hermit who is in danger of running his company into the ground. He starts writing letters to abstract concepts like Death, Love and Time, to rail at them. So his sorrowing colleagues – Ed Norton, Kate Winslet and Michael Peña – cook up a sneaky plan. They intercept the letters and hire three actors, played by Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley and Jacob Latimore, to go up to Will in the street and argue with him, pretending to be Death, Love and Time. (They could also have hired Jack Black to be Eat and Morgan Freeman to be Pray – but I guess there were copyright issues.)

Ed, Kate and Michael will secretly video his arguments with these imposters, digitally remove the actors from the video to make him look like a crazy person talking to himself, then show the video to the board to get Will voted off.

The Pleasure Principal (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 13 December 2016 20:57 (two years ago) link

In a just world, this would extinguish the career of everyone involved. But I think we just found our Best Picture Oscar winner!

Sully looks like weaponised boring

also a shitty kids author got her butler to write the word "pokemon" on a napkin and gave herself the rest of the year off & now people are acting surprised that the result is kind of a nothing film

banfred bann (wins), Wednesday, 14 December 2016 06:59 (two years ago) link

Helen Mirren is the tragedy here. I could see signing onto this mess for the cashola, but this is not a hit movie by any means!

You'd like to think your favorite actors possessed somr trace of taste and discernment. For instance I thought I detected intelligence and shrewdness in the eyes of Jessica Chastain, which led me to check out Miss Sloane last week. What am embarrassment. Again, not a blockbuster formula there, so she had to think this was gonna be Good. Oh that script. Hardest I've cringed since my first exposure to the work of Diablo Cody.

rip van wanko, Wednesday, 14 December 2016 07:32 (two years ago) link

I'm sort of fascinated by Collateral Beauty now. What a weird premise/way of conceiving trauma. The Village Voice review teases that there are two additional twists beyond "They're actors."

jmm, Wednesday, 14 December 2016 15:41 (two years ago) link

Oh boy twists

banfred bann (wins), Wednesday, 14 December 2016 16:46 (two years ago) link

that's where I was a Viking all along

banfred bann (wins), Wednesday, 14 December 2016 16:47 (two years ago) link

shall we guess the twists
