I watched "Manchester By The Sea" last night on Amazon Prime. All I can say is thank God I didn't have to pay to watch it. I don't know if it's me or the Hollywood media mill and Hollywood people in the Academy who give out awards, but I thought Casey Affleck was terrible. I cry at the drop of a hat too, and I didn't even get teary. I didn't like it is that this I didn't find any redeeming qualities in this vulgar, foul-mouthed family.

I watched this film on Netflix called BLAME! the other night. It's kind of like a mix between an anime and animated film, but it was really well done. The plot could have used a bit more explaining, as could one or two of the characters - the main character, Killy, was especially shrouded in mystery - but overall it was really worth watching. I kind of knew it would be good since it was a Netflix production - one of those exclusive ones.

In my opinion that's pretty much the only redeeming quality about Netflix. I don't really like their choice of films all that much and their catalogue doesn't really seem too extensive. I was reading an article about the alternatives to Netflix (https://www.1and1.com/digitalguide/online-marketing/online-sales/netflix-alternatives-amazon-itunes-co-reviewed/) and it seems like Google Play and Amazon might be the way to go. If anyone has any advice about one or the other please let me know.

Just finished an excellent crime "mini-series" on Netflix called "Manhunt". It's about the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski. It was really engrossing and fast paced, and both Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany were superb. I didn't even recognize Paul Bettany until the end. He was so good that he had me feeling sorry for him by the end.

As to Netflix, I'm getting progressively disenchanted too. They seem to be spending their money not on acquiring films, but on original programming, programming for which I'm definitely not the target audience. The only "originals" I watch are the crime dramas. I'm going to be looking at Google Play and perhaps Hulu as well. I basically want not only films, but also certain channels like HBO. I get Amazon because I'm a prime member but it's not great. I don't know if the next level is worth it.

I just saw Blade Runner 2049, and it was amazing!

It was 2 hours and 43 mins, and not once did I feel bored watching it. The cinematography was outstanding, and I actually felt invested in the characters. The story was terrific, and it is really worthy of being a sequel to the original. Rarely do I feel this way about movies anymore, but I walked out of the theater feeling impressed and satisfied with watching it.

5/5 stars for sure!

^ I want to watch Blade Runner 2049. I listened to the whole soundtrack yesterday. Since I use the old Blade Runner (by Vangelis) for concentration, I was kinda disappointed by this one. I hope the movie is good though.

While they are both sci-fi, Blade Runner is a Sci-fi Noir/Tech Noir film (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tech_noir); a combination of Sci-Fi and Film Noir (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_noir). It's similar to an old crime-drama, in a futuristic setting. A lot of it has it's roots in German Expressionism; films like Metropolis.

Imagine a Dashiell Hammett book taking place in a dark high-tech future setting.

Sci fi noir reminds me of that disappointing halo game i got (ODST) on Xbox 360 :). Sadly, that series is going downhill.

But since you weren't bored most of the time, it sounds good to me.

Red Dragon (2002)

Good movie, I saw for the first time the other day. This is supposed to be a prequel to Silence of the Lambs. Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, and Philip Seymour Hoffman play great roles in the film. While it's not quite as good or as memorable as Silence of Lambs, but I think the film was sufficient for being a prequel.

TNT played "His Gal Friday". Love it, so watched it again. She was one of my role models as a teenager.

I love that show. Do you know the one where the girl has had extensive facial surgery because she's so hideous that children run from her screaming? You never see the doctors and nurses. At the end when they take the bandages off she starts screaming because it didn't work and she's still hideous. The camera pans out to show you that the doctors and nurses look like monsters and the girl looks like a beautiful human girl.

So many lessons were taught through those little short stories.

I don't know if you're a fan of the "Dune" books. I loved them and thought the movie was so disappointing. I wish they'd do another better one.

Yea, that was such a great episode! I also like the one with the hunter, and his dog who go to heaven. Also the one with the soldier, ballerina, hobo, and bag-piper trying to escape from a large cylinder, and it turns out that they're toy figurines. As well, the one about the cab driver whose TV predicts the future. The midnight sun was another classic episode. That was really a quality television show.

I haven't seen much of the 1980s remake of the Twilight-Zone, but this episode starring Bruce Willis, directed by Wes Craven; really is great imo

Role Models was another classic. I'm into comedy mostly, especially the kind that pokes fun at society or the kind that is just rude in general.

I can always rely on some of what's posted here for a satisfying comedic dose ;)

Anything that makes a mockery of and pokes fun at things wins my vote as long as it isn't too sick like joking about actual tragedies

All good except for Aliens. I was watching it for about 30 mins and was like "screw this, this is boring" then walked away. No offense, i don't know why people liked it.

I guess it's due to being accustomed to playing bloody and gory video games most my life
lol. I can never get myself through a movie unless it's real good, I need to take part in the action which is why I spent most of my leisure time playing video games growing up. Haven't gotten the new Nintendo switch, can't afford it but my PlayStation 4 is good enough.

Aliens (1986) has a 94% approval out of 427,694 user reviews, and a 98% out of 65 professional reviews. It's considered one of the best movies ever made. Many of those games you play took great inspiration from that film in particular. Are you sure your inability to watch the movie isn't attributed to your ADHD? I recall from another thread (https://www.eupedia.com/forum/threads/35109-Weekly-Fish-Consumption-Linked-to-Better-Sleep-and-Higher-IQ?p=528176&viewfull=1#post528176) that you said that you have that condition.

Arrrghhhh i goofed, I was referrring to alien 3. I looked it up and it got crap reviews. No surprise I left it behind. I never saw the others.

Yes I have ADHD and no I'm not a big movie watcher and yes that's due to ADHD. It would have to be something really captivating if it isn't a good comedy like the rocky flicks (but I can't watch the latest "modern" one again, it's too depressing).

Angela
02-01-18, 17:30
There are a lot of movies I don't watch, like all those slasher films, Friday the 13th stuff, for instance. They have no redeeming value, in my opinion. I also don't watch certain movies about drugs. I couldn't watch Trainspotting, for example. I turned it off.

I found it difficult to get through even a film like Wall Street. I stuck with it because it was so well made. Same thing with Pulp Fiction, where I did close my eyes. I guess I will watch something with difficult subject matter if it has artistic value and if I think the "icky scenes" are not gratuitous. For example, I watched Narcos on Netflix and thought it was very good.

Most of the stuff on netflix I find unwatchable, however. Out of the last 40 Netflix original productions I've watched five. I'm thinking of cancelling. The only reason I haven't is that I really like their crime procedurals, like "The Killing" and "The Fall".

I'll admit, though, that my tastes are slightly more "masculine" than those of most of my women friends. I don't watch the Marvel Comics type films, though, or that film about drunks whose name escapes me.

I watched legend which has tom hardy (one of my favorite actors. I can't wait to see the venom film).
I have seen the first alien film and it was great.
I also seen many others too but the list would be too long.

I would recommend Dogtooth and Suntan. They are both Greek films, Yeah I enjoy Greek films!

Have you ever seen that movie, "The Drop" with Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and James Gandolfini? It was compelling, and sort of reminded me of Taxi Driver, in a way.

I hesitate whether to recommend this or not. It's called "Shelter" and stars Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers and I saw it on Netflix. I thought it was going to be a psychiatrist/criminal movie, and it turned out to be quite different. Some parts toward the end are a bit cheesy, but the acting was so good, particularly by him, that it scared the hell out of me. In fact, I had nightmares about it all night. Not for the faint of heart.

More of a regular crime procedural is the French thriller "La Mante". I thought it was very good.

I think "Casablanca" and "It's A Wonderful Life" got bad critic reviews as well.

I tend not to read the critic reviews and to go with the reviews right on Netflix. Those were on the whole pretty good for it. I wouldn't expect any film with a religious point of view to get good scores from current critics, though. (As I said, the scenes with the "old granny" were pretty cheesy, so a great film this is not.) Heck, maybe not even in the past. I'm sure they hated films like "The Exorcist" and the "Omen" and "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", too. I was about to say I really "enjoyed" those movies, but that's not really the right word. :)

Another recent one on netflix, that they spent millions to produce, is "Bright", with Will Smith. I had heard the critics panned it, but the reviews on netflix were sort of mixed, so I gave it a try. I lasted fifteen minutes. Most movies have their flaws, but for goodness sakes, don't bore me.

That's true, film critics may also have a very pretentious, and snooty disposition, which probably clouds their judgement as well. They could also be doing a hatchet-job on a film; as we can see Hollywood is very politicized.

Here's a great example of an excellent religious film that was hated by critics and loved by the audience:

Those reviews of "The Passion of the Christ" are a travesty, imo. That was a brilliant movie in every sense of the word, savaged by people who 1) thought we were still living in the Middle Ages and it would spark pogroms as Passion Plays once did 2) hated Mel Gibson and always had 3)hate Christianity.

Is it too violent for some people, perhaps? Yes, it is, but there was violence and gore in Braveheart too. Mel Gibson makes it real. That's the way it was in both cases. If you're of a religious frame of mind, that's what God suffered for our sins. Did I find it distressing, upsetting, did I weep? Yes, I did. That's besides the point. Those reviews are as ridiculous of those of Pauline Kael used to be. Crucifixion is a violent business.

I cried all the way through Schindler's List. A friend of mine who knows me well brought along an entire box of tissues, and I used them all. I almost did leave, but I felt that I had to bear witness to it.

Schindler's list was another excellent film, which was also considerably graphic in content. Nevertheless, it captured the brutal reality of history. But like the Passion of the Christ, the violence in the film was more for realism (the punishment of crucifixion and scourging), than gratuity; unlike in that disgusting movie Hostel, or some senseless b-movie.

I just saw "47 Meters Down". While it is certainly not the best movie, I thought it was fun to watch. I think it missed some opportunities to be a good movie. Some of the action parts could have been done better. Being a shark aficionado sparked my interest in seeing it. It had some good atmosphere, since the ocean floor is terrifying. But I think It missed the mark with using the sharks.

I also so "Before I Wake" last night, which was also okay imo.

I really liked it! Great cast, and very good visual effects.

"Hell or High Water" with Jeffrey Bridges and Chris Pine, a 2018 modern Western set in West Texas..."Bone Tomahawk" with Kurt Russell and Patrick Wilson, a gothic Western set in Texas in the 1890's, with bits of horror-based violence.

Hey. Wolf from Wall Street this is the last film I saw. It's very long. This film has a duration of about two hours. This film is very serious and interesting.

I recently watched The Mist (2007) and I'm not really disappointed. It has a nice plot going and the kill count is pretty big for a thriller movie. The ending though left me feeling sad and satisfied.

I saw "Samson" on Netflix, over the holidays. It was mediocre, and the casting was really bad. (Though I really do like the actor, Rutger Hauer). Nevertheless, it was a fun movie to watch.

I haven't watched that one yet.

I did watch Birdbox with Sandra Bullock. I found it pretty enjoyable until the resolution, which was stupid in my opinion. She's always a reliable actress, so there's that.

Sometimes the actors can carry the movie a bit, I find.

That's it; I can't keep watching this thing. If I took my blood pressure last night, the gauge would probably have exploded like the freaking core of the reactor. Incompetence and cowardice married to total blind adherence to ideology leading to the eventual death of all those innocents practically set my hair on fire. I wanted to reach back in time and haul all of the scientists, all the way up the chain and all the stupid party bureaucrats and put them in front of a firing squad!

Well, after a full, HONEST, trial, of course. :)

A hospital a mile from a nuclear reactor doesn’t stock iodine pills? The nurse knew they should have had them. Firemen going to put out a fire at a reactor don’t have protective gear? Their instruments for measuring true radiation are locked in a safe to which they’ve lost the key? Why, anyway, wouldn't all their gauges measure the TRUE radiation?Townspeople so ignorant they let their children play in nuclear dust? Oh, and a manager who is told repeatedly there is no more core and it has totally blown up refuses to believe it, and spends the rest of the time in shock meekly doing what he is told. Then, to cap it all off, the Party people say it’s not dangerous; we can’t evacuate the people in surrounding villages because it not only would start a panic but would put Soviet Socialism in disrepute. What’s the reaction? Absolute submission. Ideology beats everything.

Incredible. It’s like the Three Stooges running a nuclear reactor. This was a country with hundreds of nuclear weapons? Thank God they’ve been decommissioned. They had no idea what they were doing.

What was that report which said most of their technology just flat out didn't work, but they were so afraid of the party bosses that they just falsified the reports?

I’m not saying accidents couldn’t happen anywhere, because they do, but they really were astoundingly inept. I can’t imagine that the French reactors are run so incompetently. As for our cock ups with this kind of technology, what I used to think was horrific doesn't hold a candle to this.

With the Epstein episode in Washington in the news, I watched Clue from Amazon videos... where everyone involved in government was doing bad things and being blackmailed. Ingenious story plot.

The dining room scene in 'Clue' explains Washington 101. For if you can't be blackmailed, you are not wanted in any position of power.

Republicans in Washington wanted nothing to do with Epstein because it was a rumor in Republican circles that Epstein's prostitution ring was a Mossad operation.


Similarly, DC is on edge. “Epstein bragged about his contacts in Washington,” Boies said. Reporters are likely to dig into why the Justice Department decided not to prosecute Epstein and kept the deal secret from his victims. One theory circulating among prominent Republicans is that Epstein was a Mossad agent. Another is that the George W. Bush White House directed Acosta not to prosecute Epstein to protect Prince Andrew on behalf of the British government, then the U.S.’s closest ally in the Iraq war.

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/07/jeffrey-epstein-case-grows-more-grotesque

'Clue' is about those being blackmailed wanting the blackmailer and everyone who knows about the crimes, dead. And one comment by the character Mr Green... half of Washington would be implicated if Miss Scarlet's prostitution ring was exposed, so she was in no real danger. This is how Epstein felt protected. The more who partake, the more protection.

It's not new, but Bagdad Cafe is a good movie, full of mood and a slow thoughtful pace. CCH Pounder is, as usual, wonderful. It falls apart at the end, as so many movies do, but up until then there is a strange, beautiful feel to it, greatly due to the music (vocals) that accompanies it. I watch it at least once a year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCLpLWcX2cg
