I saw it today, Fred is right, Cold Pursuit is a black comedy disguised as an action movie. it's very similar to Miami Blues, and in the same universe as Repo Man (though not nearly as good as either). worth seeing imo, and I hate all that Taken shit. it's not like that at all

Liam Neeson's action star career has run the gamut from competent trash to outstanding. Taken obv made him viable as an action commodity but its the least interesting film of this era (well maybe more interesting than Taken 2&3...) The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones and a couple of those Collet-Serra flicks are great.

Perhaps unfairly, i assume any movie with liam neeson isn’t worth watching

the first movie written solely for eric alterman

Saw the trailer for that the other day and it looked so bad I was embarrassed to be there for that two minutes.

there's a mini-trend of movies trying to follow the commercial success of bo rhap, using some combination of 1. britain 2. minority groups 3. classic rock. rocketman and yesterday being the other prominent ones, and this one looking by far the worst.

adam the (abanana), Thursday, 11 July 2019 18:08 (three months ago) link

to be fair, Rocketman started filming before Bohemian Rhapsody even came out, although of course its director is the guy who'd replaced Singer on BR, so maybe he had some confidence it would be a hit.

No intention of seeing any of them but rocket man does sound better than the other three, which I would rather be murdered badly than have to see

I bought a ticket for a “surprise film” knowing only that it was a preview of a “much anticipated” upcoming film. I thought it might be the qt or almodóvar but it turned out to be that Springsteen thing ☹️

I gave it 40 minutes

Jesus... how are you holding up?

flappy bird, Friday, 2 August 2019 23:03 (two months ago) link

lol

I mean the film is exactly what it looks like. I could have seen a preview of it for free earlier this week and couldn’t be bothered, it genuinely never occurred to me that it could be the surprise film. When the title came up several people murmured “oh no”

One of my funniest cinema experiences was years ago at the film festival, they always close with a mystery film (eg last year was Roma), that year it was that proclaimers musical for some reason. When the title came up two guys in front of me looked at each other and without saying a word got up and left - maybe you had to be there but it made the whole thing worthwhile for me

lmfao!!

I saw the trailer for it before Yesterday (which I really liked, leagues better than Rocketman and, from what I gather, BoRap), and the Springsteen movie is like one of those shitty 95/96 Pulp Fiction ripoffs, but of a movie released 2 months prior.

Avoiding the hell out of that Springsteen movie, but I keep reading reviews of it for some reason. I'm weirdly fascinated by the fact that it even exists. A couple of Springsteen superfans made a movie about the true story of one of them becoming a Springsteen superfan? And people let this happen?

Lily Dale, Monday, 19 August 2019 16:54 (one month ago) link

Probably got through on the strength of the current wave of boomer rock flicks (Queen, Elton, that “what if the Beatles never happened?” one...)

(which I now see represents the bulk of the recent discussion in this thread)

Herman Woke (cryptosicko), Monday, 19 August 2019 16:59 (one month ago) link

I saw the title of the thread and was like, "hmm, I wonder if there's anything about that Springsteen movie." Was amused to see that this is all that's been talked about in the thread for the last month or so.

The Irishman

Pauline Male (Eric H.), Friday, 27 September 2019 14:15 (two weeks ago) link

I’ve somehow avoided hearing that much about this, and I can’t imagine myself not being curious enough to watch any new Scorsese at some point, but the “de-aging” stuff looks ridiculous.

Herman Woke (cryptosicko), Friday, 27 September 2019 14:55 (two weeks ago) link

everything about it seems completely dumb and pointless to me, but its going to be playing at the arthouse down the block from me and tbh i feel like theres probably going to be a quiet night when my morbid curiosity gets the best of me and i'll take a sad walk of shame down there to check it out

Scorsese’s good imo

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

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.

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
