Mister Roberts (1955) - 6.5/10

 

Old WWII movie with James Cagney and Henry Fonda. Supposed to be a comedy but it's one of the few comedies where I didn't laugh once.

Some of the humor is just weird. It's hard to believe though this is directed by John Ford. I'm not a fan of his films.

 

BTW have you seen this? It's a list of the 50 greatest WWII movies of all time. In a strange coincidence they have the same top 2 as I do!

Now I remember why I thought QT was God's gift to cinema!

Good to see you liked it! I can't wait to watch it again...

I will see it again with friends! The neat part was how the music strung your emotions. I thought the rifle shots were really recorded well. Of course all the trademark QT scripting. There is really so much to love. I would think it's his best after Pulp Fiction. I don't see how anyone would not love it?

Yes, Yes! I don't remember where, but I read QT chose the soundtrack from his own vinyl collection, I think it was in the Django Unchained Facebook page. And of course all of his movies scream QT, that's something I rather like of him, that all of his movies kind of "fit" together, if you love one, you'll love all

Total Recall 9/10

 

What a surprise thought it was going to be a total bomb as everybody seemed to hate it upon release.

Don´t have much in common with the original but well it´s Total Recall :D

QT finds the cool music that we forgot about and brings it back. It is always a little funky. This songs by a band called Smith was used as the sexy dance section in Deathproof. The hit only lasted for a short while a was the only hit record for Smith. She took some band acid and ended up in the nut house. Capitol didn't have a signed contract showing her record deal either. Her Step-Father took Capitol to court for the proceeds and you never heard of the song again, unless you remembered it from the day. I would guess that after you get a feel for QTs musical style then all his soundtrack choices fall together. He just thinks he is smart and cool to know and share this little known music in his movies. The tunes do make his flicks though!

Singer Gayle McCormick,her CD's are still for sale on Amazon.

Cryin' Shame was her other known song.
Apparently living in St.Louis,what a beautiful woman with a great voice that just didn't get to the top.

Agree with you 100%

2012


Denzel Washington was a convincing substance abuser and an adept,functioning one at that.
Quality storyline made for this moment,well worth watching.

Flight is strictly drama,with one intense live action scene.
Just a very true to life story,I dare say one I am intimate with.
Given the penchant for reality schlock these days,this film remains eminently watchable.

Man on Fire,as you know,is a thriller and most films involving Mickey Rourke have a violence quotient.

Did you also land a plane upside down? All jokes aside my dad did when he was about the age I am now...of course, it was a single engine Cessna and it was in the middle of a corn field. tongue_smile.gif

The Adolescence of Utena (1999): 7/10

Confession time: that rating is totally arbitrary. I don't even know where to begin with this honestly. Let's start with what I do have a firm handle on: this full-length follow up to the anime series Revolutionary Girl Utena is a *gorgeous* animated movie. I can't believe that this came out in 1999. There are moments in this that from a purely visual perspective rival even the best moments of Miyazaki's finest work. This gives the visual artistry of Satoshi Kon's Paprika a run for its money. 

That's about the only positive thing I can say. Not that I have anything negative to say--the only thing I can really say is "Buh?' This might even out-Lynch David Lynch himself. As surreal as the series got, this takes things to an entirely new level; and instead of taking on new themes (or the themes of the series), it instead seems to actually be *deconstructing the series that proceeded it.* The already vague geography of the series here is reduced instead to constantly shifting, impossible architecture; the characters' traits in the series are here immensely exaggerated; and the vague apocalypse of the series' final moments here is given symbolic definition in one of most legitimately shocking and just plain weird sequences I've seen in film. This isn't just a compressed retelling of the anime series. This is a different animal entirely. It all amounts to.... I'm not sure what. Some sort of romantic lesbian surrealist comedy that I'm not really sure amounts to anything beyond that. What I do know is that I couldn't take my eyes off of it. And that I sort of can't wait to subject myself to it again.

I have experienced inverted flight but always have landed fuselage down.
Used to live in Hope B.C. near the mountain airport.
The club had six gliders to train on,it's just as crazy catching a thermal updraft near the mountain,you'll soar up like an elevator 2,000 ft so fast...
Gliders provide all the rudimentary flying skills.
Reminds you of crashing when landing those craft on a single wheel just below the cockpit.
No,not a trained jet pilot yet and have no aspirations to become one.

Now,I've re-watched Man on Fire (2004) to refresh my memory of Denzel Washington.
Flight (2012) handles the subject matter of addiction very well and carries this theme throughout the entire film.
After the first third of Man on Fire,the lead character abruptly changes face to gain focus,
Christopher Walken spells that out for the police:
"A man can be an artist.
In food,in anything,whatever...
It depends on how good he is at it.
Creasy's art is death.
He is about to paint his Masterpiece.
I really don't have anything else to say"

QT puts on a good show.  Django; good entertainment.

Paranorman - 8/10

 

Lots of little things made this movie great. It was just fun to watch.

I guess the female cloths in Turkey where chosen for dramatic effect. As ridiculous as having them look like "I Dream Of Jennie".

 

6/10
