Until the Light Takes Us - pretty bad...most musicians interviewed sounded either pretentious or stupid. Such a waste of time.

Come and See

I thought the first 45 minutes or so were great, but afterwards I thought the movie became a bit plodding. I'll watch it again at one point though...I'm a bit sleepy so perhaps that didn't help.

Come Back, Little Sheba

Film about alcoholism starring Burt Lancaster. It was enjoyable for what it was. Would probably watch it again next month for a second opinion.

I actually think there is a bit more to it than that. Take the scene of Fenriz in the gallery, for example. I have not seen many documentaries where an artist is looking at his own creation being showcased in a context that he could have never imagined when actually creating it. His facial reactions are very telling.

The Swimmer (1968)

Film started off kinda ''ehh'', but it things became more interesting halfway through. 7/10

Nosferatu The Vampyre - good one! Atmospheric, well paced and well acted. Definitely enjoyed it.

Gave Apocalypse Now a try again and I definitely liked it better this time. The scenes I earlier had my doubts about worked better for me this time.

Herzog's Nosferatu is great. It's just as good, if not better, than Murnau's brilliant silent version.

The Godfather Coda: new cut of Godfather 3. It isn't radically different, but the new introduction, which is essentially a later scene brought forward, does snap the plot into sharper focus. No doubt the same problems remain--Sophia Coppola, Diane Keaton (shitty dramatic actress imo), scattershot plotting etc--but it looks and sounds incredible in this new remaster. I can't think of a Hollywood drama that looks as grand as this today. Coppola was really swinging for the fences, and the opera sequence is superbly executed from a technical standpoint.

If you didn't like this film before, you won't like it now. If you were on the fence or enjoyed it to some degree, I'd say it's worth a look. 4/5.

The Shawshank Redemption

Well, the acted saved the money. Plot is without a doubt a bit shaky.

Kanal (1957)

Polish war movie about a Lieutenant and his resistance fighters who try to escape through the sewers. It was bleak as hell - good stuff.

^ What the hell :lol:

Been going through some of the early films of Yimou Zhang again. Ju Dou is a good movie.

Been going through some John Woo movies...

The Killer: way too over the top for my taste. Chow Yun-Fat was pretty convincing though.

A Better Tomorrow: I liked this one better. Though that Leslie Cheung kind of sucked in this one and I liked Chow Yun-Fat better in The Killer, but the plot isn't so over the top and knows when to build up and when to release tension at least.

The Killer is WAAAAAY better.


Godzilla Vs Kong: waste of time. 90 minutes of tedium until the final 'showdown' that is like a poor Pacific Rim. Skip it.

If you enjoy some pseudo-moving nonsense in between endless shooting scenes that lose their appeal quickly, sure!

Nah but, why would you say so?

It's better on every level. The acting, the music, the action scenes etc. A Better Tomorrow was the beginning of Woo's 'heroic bloodshed' phase. He didn't really nail it until The Killer and then later with Hard Boiled.
