I haven't watched this film, is one of the most celebrated mexican films ever. Some french magazine ranked it as one of the best films ever, i think it was ranked on the 25° spot.

absolutely give it a try one of these days. and give exterminating angel a go too. that one was shot in spain, but it's also bizarre & completely great.


Viridiana is my favorite of all the Buñuel movies I've seen. I love the salaciousness of it--even more so than Belle de jour.

Nothing particularly special, but I liked it. I liked how it was shot, a little grainy, looked like it was shot on film, and I like Jake Johnson anyway. The actors were all good. 6.5/10

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?

Holy s**t I just read the plot on wikipedia. Truly disturbing. Yikes.

I need to watch "Animal House" just to get right again. Wow.

not that anyone needs to listen to me, but my advice to you is to never ever watch this movie! i think i can safely say you will hate everything about it.

lol, one of my favourite org memories is your reaction to reading the wiki plot summary of dogtooth after i posted about it on a rtlmyw thread way back in 2012.



LMAO, I had to search for it. My words still stand!

Holy crap.

http://en.wikipedia.org/w...oth_(film)

Christina is again brought to the compound to perform her services and she once more requests oral sex from the elder daughter. However, the daughter rejects Christina's offer of hair gel as a reward, choosing instead the two films in Christina's bag (Rocky IV and Jaws). Christina refuses to hand over the films, but eventually agrees under threat ofblackmail. The elder daughter watches the films at night, and they have a significant influence on her. She recreates scenes from the films and quotes them in her free moments. The father finds the videotapes, fashions one into a weapon with packing tape, and uses it to beat his daughter's head. Then he goes to Christina's flat, removes her VCR player from the wall and knocks her off her chair with it. As he leaves, he curses her future children to be corrupted by "bad influences."

In the middle of the night, the son's knee is injured with a hammer and he accuses his younger sister. She claims he was attacked by a cat with a hammer and the father accepts her story. The parents quickly decide that, with Christina no longer available, they should allow the son to choose one of the daughters as a replacement. After fondling both sisters simultaneously in the bath with his eyes closed, he chooses the elder, who is later dressed and prepared by the mother for the sexual encounter. The elder daughter is visibly uncomfortable during intercourse, and afterwards recites a threatening passage from Rocky IV to her brother.

Rocky IV?!? Everyone knows Rocky III was far superior in every way. There's no way this movie can be a 5/5. Bypassing a masterpiece like Rocky III means it could not be any more than 0.25/5.

Also, no one in the world would turn down some hair gel in exchange for oral sex. I mean, come on.

The Florida Project - star star star star star

i caught 'the florida project' last night. 4.5/5. the only reason it's not a 5 is because of the last 30 seconds or so. not that i disliked the ending...i'm just not quite sure what i thought of it, & not sure if i completely trust my reaction to it. but the rest of the film was perfect - touching & bittersweet & frustrating in just the right way, in that you hate situation but understand & care about the people. reminds me of farhadi's films in how there's not even a hint of artificiality, feels like your thrown into a real world situation. probably has now nudged out raw for my movie of the ytd.

belle de jour is on my must-see list. i started to watch it years ago when it popped up on tv (a&e, i think), but my annoying brother-in-law hated it and complained so much i changed the channel just to get him to shut the hell up.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Some of the jokes were unnecessary. It didn't have to be that funny. However, it looked great and the action scenes were well-done. And as a Marvel Comics fan I did enjoy the comic book references, especially the hidden ones (Beta Ray Bill's face carved into the sculpture on the skyscraper!) so I'll rate this film a little higher than I normally would. 3.5/5

i caught that myself on saturday. the action was pretty good - i'd even go as far as to say it's a step up over what we've come to expect from cbms, but it was almost incidental. it's really a flat-out comedy, & a pretty good one i'd say. it's always amusing, and actually made me laugh out loud at least twice, something i almost never do. cate blanchett camped it up nicely & my pervy side really liked looking at her in goth gear. 3.5/5

i complete missed beta ray bill. i was a big fan of walt simonson's run on thor...

a ghost story 4.5/5 a ghost, presented in the most simple manner possible - a sheet with two eye-holes - haunts the house he lived in. i liked this so much, i watched it again today on a streaming site a day after catching it in the theatre. i really couldn't stop thinking about it, & wanted to spend more time in that world.

it dances around a fine line between being a bit silly & self-serious, & i could see people disliking it for either of those qualities, but i thought it reached a calm, quietly majestic tone almost all the way through. the only false step for me was a rather long & i felt rather too on the nose lecture that seemed there to summarize the point of the movie, as though the film-maker didn't quite trust that the rest of the movie was getting his point across, delivered in the middle of the film by will oldham aka bonnie prince billy). otherwise, this was a perfect, sad, lonely rumination on the futility of life.

i loved this movie. everything you said about it is spot on...that will oldham speech does pull you right out of the movie, though. i wish they'd tried harder to make the same point differently.

i don't know how much you enjoy comics/art comics, but after i watched this, i immediately went to my bookshelf and pulled richard mcguire's 'here' for a re-read. it explores some similar territory and is a very clever and fun comic. i recommend it either as a companion to this movie or just a fun rainy afternoon read.

Sedmikrásky / Daisies (1966) - Two girls try to understand the meaning of the world and their life.

I admire the zany innovation of how this movie was filmed. And the plot is delicious anarchy--often times literally seeing the amount of food that is consumed throughout. 4/5

I don't know about the LAST one. But I'm seeing a 35mm print of Casablanca on the big screen tonight. How do we suppose that will rate?

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

i don't read graphic novels at all, really, but i'm always looking for something different & new so i'll give it a try - i just checked & we have it at our library. thanks!

yeah, check it out...it's definitely different from your typical comics read. i think you'll find it pretty interesting.

Last few I've seen...

Blade Runner - One of the most well made sci-fi's I've seen 5/5.

Blade Runner 2049 - I loved the pace, and simplicity of the story. Looked amazing, but I like the way the city was made to look original better 4/5.

Barbara - Subtle and exciting. The main character is captivating. 4.5/5

Le Week-end - Bittersweet but, hopeful look at love. Jim Broadbent was great, but honestly Jeff Goldblum and Paris steal the show (duh). 4/5



The Killing of a Sacred Deer - ...I've sat through my share of horror movies thanks to my brother, but I haven't watched something that left me feeling tense like this did from begining to end in quite a while eek . Everything here was creepy. Between the intense music and curious camera angles and well-acted, but deadpan characters I sat in constant anticipation that something bad was just around the corner. Hard to say if I loved this, or never want to see it again lol 3.8/5

Your description sold me enough to Google this. Now I'm watching it on youtube, very confused, but I can't look away.

the killing of a sacred deer - 4.5/5 - i was a bit lukewarm on alps, but otherwise i simply love yorgos lanthinmos's films. dogtooth is at the top of my century list definitely. i don't quite like the lobster as much (i thought the 1st half was much stronger than the 2nd), but i would still rate it very highly as well. killing... is still very recognizable as his style, particularly in the dead-pan delivery, but it's closer to a horror movie than the kind of absurdist comedy of the lobster, though there are several uncomfortably hilarious moments. it doesn't feel like it has the focus of the his earlier movies, the way they took on societal rules & family dynamics & romance, but i don't think it suffered from that at all. i thought it was a deranged riot & i absolutely loved it.



How did I not see this post! I was wondering if you saw this yet. I went in cold, not knowing what to expect other than knowing it was a Lanthinmos film. It was very good in that I left the theatre feeling like I needed a really long hug. How does a conversation about a watch, or a kid eating spaghetti instill such dread?
