Re: "Baby Driver"

On Baby Drive r: What's surprising is not that so much effort can be expended for so little result, but that all that effort can still come off as being so very lazy. All Wright's problems are present: mechanical scripts and characters designed to please a crowd while presenting the thinnest veneer...

Re: "Baby Driver"

Yeah, this was one of the best movies of the year. I've listened to Radar Love almost daily for weeks now. Have you listened to S&G's Baby Driver . The singing is some of their best and the lyrics, once you figure out it's solid sexual references, are a real hoot. "My daddy was a prominent...

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I think the movie side steps the issue of AI, but is true to the inevitable conclusion that there is no such thing as a special "one". Special, yes, but not THE One or anything that smacks of preordination. No one is exempt from a sudden, meaningless death, if any death can have meaning in...

Re: Upcoming in 2018

The House that Jack Built --I can't think of anything I'd rather not do than follow a serial psycho around for 2 hours no matter how complex his personality or how well directed. Ready Player One --Big question mark. Robin Hood --I can see why they're doing this again, the only one that came even c...

Re: "The Only Living Boy in New York"--Another masterpiece from Marc Webb.

This movie is now on Amazon Prime 4K. No BluRay in sight though.

If you care about cinematic art, go see it. If not, don't. 8-)

Re: Loving Vincent - First Hand painted Feature

Not only fascinating and beautiful to watch, the mystery and history are interesting as well. Close to being a technical and innovative masterpiece. 8/10

Re: Blade Runner 2049

I know the following opinion is probably objectively wrong but I found Blade Runner kind of... underwhelming. Maybe it was spoiled because I'd been told over and over that it's the or one of the best films of all time. It was good... but somehow disappointing. Blade Runner 2049 was the opposite. I ...

"Lucky" (2017)

(spoilers) It's a semi-biographical story/tribute to a 90 year-old curmudgeon (Harry Dean Stanton) who lives by himself in a small desert town in southern Arizona. In the film, he has a flashback to a terrible experience as a child of being in a dark void. At the end of the movie, in a bar, he's tal...

Blade Runner 2049

How ironically fitting that a horror movie in its 5th week and centered on a clown ( It ), takes in more than an exquisitely produced sequel to a cult classic. Perhaps its a sign that dystopia as a genre, with music and denouement to match, has finally run its course, along with what some are callin...
