Man, come on. If only SW interiors were that impressionistically minimal! Then at times, if only SW were that symmetrical in production design!

I guess, yeah, it is in space. And I guess, yeah, there are some people in uniforms........... . . . . .    .  .       .    .       .             .          .

i watched American Heist, a wildly dumb movie, only tangentially related to heists, with the aesthetic and narrative sensibility of The Fast And The Furious. Adrien Brody brings to life a hilariously overdramatic persona, and the script is a lil gold mine. The version I watched, unfortunately, didn't have subtitles available, but i swear in this scene Adrien Brody is yelling at the top of his lungs "They fucked me in the ass, Marty! The fucked me in the ass with toothpaste!".

I watched Adrien Brody in "The Pianist" a bunch of years ago, and I recall thinking 1) Dude has a great face, and 2) It's a disappointing movie if what you're really after is footage of someone playing lots of hot tunes on a piano (it is what I look for when I watch films and television shows where musicians are the subject). For a pianist, he sure does not play a lot of piano during the movie! It is mostly a sad WWII movie. I suppose most WWII movies are sad. 

 

I just looked the movie up on Wikipedia, and I learned that Roman Polanski directed it. I made a face! Kind of like, :-/

The end!

Life Is Beautiful is a happy WWII film and also features a man with a great face

also i saw The Shape Of Water at the cinema yesterday. i had a good time with it, and it felt like everyone involved did as well. it's a simple story whose individual elements are twisted and exaggerated with taste. it feels a little bit like a comic book, with strong shadows and silhouettes, a moody color palette for each location, lots of detailed props... it's not afraid of being unusual, unbelievable, or whacky. it's earnest about itself and it revels in both tenderness and brutality. i liked it!

last night i watched annihilation

Spoiler

 

and i thought it had some cool stuff in it, but most of the things people said were really stupid, and a lot of good actors were directed to act like they were in a high school theater production of ghostbusters!

i didn't like all the blood and murder! don't make me watch anyone, let alone two people, get their throats literally ripped out on-screen! WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO MAKE MOVIES??? do you have to be a sociopath to get a movie made, or what? why do you think i want to hear someone throwing up into a microphone for thirty seconds, or stare at a nice lady getting mauled by a fucking horrible skull-bear??? WHY DID YOU THINK THAT IS WHAT NEEDED TO BE IN THE MOVIE

and the end, in my opinion, was a fucking joke! the creature was stupid, and was literally just a freshman drama performance art piece. and guess what guys, they already made this movie in 1995 and it was called species!!!

they made the classic and frankly unacceptable error of "showing the monster" at the end when they definitely didn't need to! i thought it was kinda neat when her husband was duplicated, but then when she started dancing with the rainbow plastic dude i was like, "this is dumb"

the people who made this movie really like alien and 2001 without understanding what made those movies meaningful. and according to my friend caleb, the movie was so different from the book as to be a completely different and worse story. i think the director of this movie probably said, "i like the book, but i want to play to the strengths of film. let's let the book do what books do best, but i want to tell like, a more visually-impactful story"

and caleb told me to go read the book so we could talk about it. so last night i read the first ten pages of the book and let me tell you: in two pages i understood that the movie had missed out on one hundred interesting possibilities, and in ten pages i could see that the movie was a complete mistake

it looked cool, but the fact there was only ONE nice pair of animals and TWO weird monster animals SUCKED!! more beautiful animals please

 

it was fine

OH WOW while i was watching annihilation i thought, "this reminds me a lot of sunshine, including the mistakes it made at the end" and it turns out alex garland wrote both movies!!! sorry he didn't learn anything.

Spoiler

sunshine is a movie that would have been pretty cool if there hadn't been a real monster in it, and the same thing is true of annihilation, except also everything else about the movie's dialogue and plot needed to change

i understand this will be controversial because alex garland also wrote donut secret house favorite dredd

dredd is good because it was typed with a sledgehammer. annihilation needed a scalpel

i watched Sunshine when i was in Morocco. Over there, american movies are on TV all the time, but curse words are bleeped out, and when even remotely violent, sexual or gory content appears, the screen goes black and you can only hear the sounds. So with a film like Sunshine, the ending was mostly a black screen. it was maddeningly weird to watch!

whoa, that's interesting! it probably worked better, thematically, to just have the movie literally fall apart at the end
