Re: 100 things I hate in movies

16. Replaying the same stunt from a second/third/nth angle because IT'S SO COOL, RIGHT?
17. Using scrolling text to introduce the film.

Re: Your thoughts on IMAX?

music too loud that it actually pulls me out of the immersion of the movie theatre Yeah you should probably be wearing concert earplugs to regular movies let alone Imax ones. Regular movies frequently go well above 80 dB and these things are usually 2 hours long plus trailers which are always extre...

Re: Orson Welles

I just saw this in its 'completed' form, and although Welles didn't finish it by himself, I wouldn't worry about its fidelity. This is unmistakably Welles' film - you can feel his presence all over it. Not only because it is highly biographical, but it really is fundamentally audacious. Welles appar...

Re: Where can I rent obscure movies?

MUBI is pretty good. Thirding the Library (if you become friends with your A/V acquisitions rep you may be able to get rare DVDs, in addition to Kanopy services). MUBI is also a good resource and they have a rental section now, which flies under the radar. I'm a huge proponent of supporting the off...

Memory is fuzzy but are you perhaps thinking of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)?

Re: Do you change your ratings ?

On very rare occasions. If I return to a film and my opinion has reversed (this has happened), I will full on delete my old score and upload a new one, since it's like a new viewing experience. If someone's starred a review, I might tweak the score up or down but the text is locked in stone. As I ch...

Re: Black Panther

The thing is though, these superhero films are just shallow. If these themes ever crop up in these films it's always extremely superficial. My main issue with superhero films, as I've stated, is that they're far less risque than their comic counterparts and most of the films feel very samey. After ...

Re: Black Panther

PendejoJorge I in many ways sympathize with your point, but I'm mostly on the other side of this particular fence. While Black Panther may lampshade pan-Africanism and globalization, that's ultimately not what the film is about - it's about an African dude who wears a cat suit and beats the shit out...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

OK, I've been totally lurking in the corners reading the responses in this thread. As is perfectly clear in my review on this here site of The Last Jedi, I liked it, a lot, despite its very present flaws in places, and am happy to be its Devil's Advocate. A couple things: Indeed the fault does fall ...
