Zack Snyders Justice League again. Yep, love this movie.
Dune was cool. It's nice to see such a reverent adaptation of such a dense book. I'm curious to see how general audiences will take to it when the whole thing is all worldbuilding and the big climax isn't even until part 2. I really thought they'd shoehorn some new action scenes in it somewhere but it's pretty much just what's in the book from what I recall.
it’s in the imdb top 100 atm so i guess it’s going down pretty well.
Nothing in the new Dune approaches the majesty of this scene:
(nor the one where Paul and Stilgar ride the sandworm against a terrible greenscreen as the electric guitars and choir kick in)
Yeah but the Americans haven't seen it yet.
i know ehrlich kind of shat on it and he’s usually got his thumb on the zeitgeist like some wannabe movie fantano so maybe you’re right.
God damn, I'm so excited for Dune!
Aiming for next week.

I saw Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings this past Sunday. I really liked it, a lot more than I thought I would.
Same, might be top 5 MCU for me. Gorgeous, fluid action scenes, great villain, likeable cast overall (I might be in a minority but I actually liked Awkwafina's sidekick/comic relief/love interest character.) The only part that didn't work for me was the CGI monster battle at the end.
I have never really understood the appeal of Awkwafina's comedy but in this movie I really thought she was fantastic with both halves of her performance.
Just pure action movie fantasia, every gun is loaded with fireworks, shotguns reload to crashes of thunder, JCVD kicks and shoots people interchangeably in melee range, every kick and blow lands with the most comically bone-crunching sound, slo-mo, freeze-frames, wipe transitions that make a "swoosh" sound, Lance Henriksen in top form, pigeons and a phantasmagoric final showdown in a burning warehouse full of Mardi Gras props. I'm so in awe of this thing, probably one of the most movie movies I've ever seen and an instant favorite. I haven't liked the other Hollywood-era Woo films I've seen and I suspect it's because he toned down his style after this one was critically panned (by morons.) This one is just 120% Woo and it's fucking glorious.
i should rewatch that, i feel like that kind of thing must play so much better on a big screen though.
I'm sure it would, wonder if I could get my student film club to vote it into the spring program It is a fantastic movie on any screen though!
is your film club picking up again now covid's hopefully fucking off?
Yeah, we're doing screenings at half capacity right now and starting in October we'll be able to have full theaters. We screened Spirited Away two weeks ago, we're doing The Lighthouse tomorrow, and then the rest of the term is Clerks, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Blade Runner 2049, Lars and the Real Girl and Ran, in that order.
your description of this movie makes me imagine 2 people coming out of the movie, one person going "that was the most horrible movie EVER" and then the other person going "that was the most awesome movie EVER" while talking about the same movie
just completely forgot this was happening until just now
