If Ebola spread to the most populous cities of the world in a mutated superstrain that literally turned its victims inside out it would almost be as good as Modern Life is Rubbish

Book Club. I suppose it's testimony to the power of...something...that Hollywood has made a movie featuring actresses of a certain age who AREN'T Meryl Streep. But no thank you.

Young Karl Marx is mostly harmless. Raoul Peck seems mostly drawn to the revolutionary-in-exile angle.

Before Death of Stalin today were the shit sandwich trailers for old people get their groove back movies Book Club and Finding Your Feet. (Saved by the Mister Rogers trailer as a lovely chaser.)

TBRR, I only know Sheeran as a subject of mockery on this board, but I don't need to hear a lick of his music to gawp in astonishment @ this concept.

Scritti Vanilli - The Word Girl You Know It's True (dog latin), Thursday, 30 August 2018 12:36 (one year ago) link

At great personal cost I once saw the most recent Bridget Jones movie, which has an extended arse-achingly tedious scene where Sheeran plays himself, not being recognised by the main character. It's one of the worst parts of a terrible, terrible film.

At Eternity's Gate - Julian Schnabel's Van Gogh biopic w/ William Defoe. I loved the Altman and Pialat Van Gogh biopics in the 90's, but just feel strongly that this will be some nauseating garbage (see also every other shit Schnabel movie and his entire art career).

calzino, Thursday, 6 September 2018 07:18 (one year ago) link

there's a bit in the trailer where he says he's painting for people who aren't born yet

devvvine, Thursday, 6 September 2018 11:53 (one year ago) link

lol, that's probably summat Schnabel said himself in the 80's, just before Clement Greenberg told him his work was complete dogshit!

Have we touched on the cringe-inducing trailer for Peppermint? It appears to be a Jennifer-Garner-headed remake of Death Wish (because one per year isn't enough?!) except this time every person she's killing is coded as Mexican.

I really like the name. It's refreshing. Like...well, I guess like peppermint! Ahhh.

A Star is Born, The Wife, A Simple Favour; I hadn’t planned on seeing any, but here I am at the cinema and this is all that’s on. Anyone have any idea which might be the most compelling of the three?

tangenttangent, Sunday, 7 October 2018 16:04 (one year ago) link

Christian Bale and Dick Cheney

this trailer generated a surprising number of whoops and cheers at my mostly 18-35 screening of A Star is Born. Everything about it remined me of what I dislike about Christian Bale's approach to acting and Adam McKay's approach to comedy.

You like queer? I like queer. Still like queer. (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 7 October 2018 16:29 (one year ago) link

I'd see The Wife out of that lot.

Why are people I like and thought I knew seeing A Star is Born? What is going on tbh

I know we're in Oscar bait season, but the trailer for On the Basis of Sex further increased my Do Not Wants.

i have never seen her, so that tends toward no

would be pretty swank to have seen every good movie ever ;)

imago, Wednesday, 10 October 2018 17:39 (one year ago) link

i find that whenever i reluctantly sit down to watch something, it's almost always bad, so imagine how awful the stuff i skip must be.

The white people I know are awful, imagine how much worse all those unknown brown people must be.

Haha ok what the FUCK is this green book movie, how is it real. I saw the trailer and it was hilariously bad, it really feels like a parody trailer in the “simple jack” genre. Like, I might actually watch this it looks so bad

Cuarón, Jenkins and maybe a few others aside, this year's holiday/awards season crop looks pretty dire.

i also don't think it's the worst year, but to be fair, a bunch of stuff on your 'good' list came out way earlier in the year.

yeah but they're getting nominated & winning, which is always good - silly to ignore films released before the fall/winter
