you might wanna try badlands @rms, it’s funnier and plottier than his other stuff
Yeah I like Badlands. Thought I was missing out, but jeez.
if you don’t like days of heaven/the thin red line i can’t imagine how much you’d hate his later stuff haha, it’s soooo much more malicky
When I had Alex Cox as my movie professor he shitted on tree of life so I never bothered
repo man > tree of life not gonna lie
He showed Walker in class ,.think it bugged him that it got him blackballed
Still entertaining as fuck. Love the way Cage slowly devolves throughout the movie, I swear even his accent changes 3/4's the way in.
Had a movie marathon with some friends last night that I hadn't seen since like January, these were the ones we watched that were new to me:
It Comes at Night - Fucking awesome post-apocalyptic movie with some big cosmic horror vibes. It's so creative while being on such a micro-budget, and the location shines. Might be one of the most bleak "horror" films I've ever seen, totally fucked up. @Einherjar86 I think you'd really appreciate this one.
The Debt Collector - Another bang up job by Jesse V. Johnson the director behind Savage Dog, Triple Threat and Avengement. He's becoming easily one of the more reliable action movie directors, and Scott Adkins rules as usual. So much good banter between the leads too. FFO classic buddy action movies.
When the director and lead actor are both career stuntmen, you know you're gonna see some entertaining shit.
Small Crimes - Starting to quite like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as an actor. Another crime one and quite enjoyable. Won't blow any minds but I enjoy a good messy plot like this. Just a clusterfuck of collateral damage and bad luck, written in part by Macon Blair which is cool, and he has a role in the film that gets good in the final act.
Yeah dude, watched it back shortly after it was available streaming. Bleak is the word; it basically distills the absolute end of everything down to the individual level. Gut wrenching. And yet also beautifully done, in its way.
So Alien 3...
Yes closer to Alien than Alien 2, but pretty bad overall. The alien effects were lame, it didn't add anything to the lore of the series, the deaths/scares ineffective and mostly offscreen, the prisoners were all dull and indistinguishable except Charles Dance who gets killed off prematurely (I was hoping for more revelations as to his reasons for imprisonment), Ripley plateaus as a character, the whole evil Corporation subplot is recycled and boring (lol when they appear looking like extras from a Frankie Goes to Hollywood videoclip), even the prison setting could have been done much better.
its not "close" to original Alien in any way outside of it being a film in the same franchise/series. But anyway, i definitely wouldn't say its a bad movie.
Personally I loved the first four Alien movies. Each was pretty different but I liked them all.
Resurrection was pretty dam bad lol fucking white alien
I mean, it was genetically blended with a human, so...
But yeah, Resurrection was pretty bad.
Resurrection wasn't bad.
Still need to watch Covenant.
