    I saw the The Lighthouse (9/10)

    This movie is an experience, can't recommend it for everyone. But for me it was a wild trip that I will think about for the rest of the year.

    not coming to France until Decembre 18th, so I'm also going to think about it for the rest of the year. then I'll hopefully see it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The Spy - 5.5/10

    Pretty slow and not very interesting during most of the movie.
    I actually am not sure why I kept watching. It's not quite boring, but close.
    The acting by Sacha Baron Cohen is actually really good. Not once did I think I was watching Borat on the screen :o2smile:
    I hope he gets to do even more serious movies like this.

    Fans of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" might like this one more than me.
    I prefer "The Lives of Others".
    BTW some scenes have a very faded look. I can't stand this and why do they do it?! Doesn't add anything to the movie!
    The actual story this is based on might be a lot more interesting. Maybe there is a documentary about it.

    White Light, Black Rain - 10/10

    Yes, one of the best documentaries about the bombing of Hiroshima there is I think.

    Living Undocumented - 9/10

    I forgot to score this one. I really liked it, but one scene towards the end felt WAY too scripted.
    A very good related series is called "Go Back to Where you came from".
    It's a reality show from Australia and was quite good IMO.
    They made somewhat famous people experience what it's like to live as an undocumented migrant coming in from a boat etc.
    It was good enough for there to be 3 seasons.
    On it were people who had many different points of views on the subject of "illegal immigration".

    PS it's amazing how in Australian TV shows like this you can use the F-word with no problem (or am I wrong?). Here in the USA you could never do that unless it was on something like HBO. Even on cable TV it's hard to get away with. There's a limit of maybe once or twice per season.

    One very very underrated movie on the subject is "El Norte". There is a really good Criterion release of it on blu-ray and it's a must see.

    White Light, Black Rain - 10/10

    I will never forget that movie. Surprised a movie like that could even be made.

    The House that Jack Built

    A story about a serial killer reminiscing his past ”career.”

    I don’t recall a movie making me this uncomfortable ever, except maybe in the case of Irreversible. Technically the movie was excellent, but the brutality makes it hard to watch at times. In the beginning there was a touch of dark humour to the movie, but ”incidents” 3 and 4 were just plain bleak and disgusting. All in all, a good movie I’ll never want to watch again.

    "Open House" [3.0/10]: IMDb describes this film as, "A teenager and his mother find themselves besieged by threatening forces when they move into a new house." The forces were not that threatening and the ending made me mad to have devoted the necessary time to get to the ending. I didn't expect much from this Netflix film, and I didn't get much.

    "Assimilate" [No Rating Possible]: "Three friends making a web series about their town discover that their neighbors are being killed and replaced by creatures who are perfect copies of their victims." I am usually generous with my evaluation of films in this venue, and generally everywhere else. However this film and the one above were just exordinarily bad in my humble opinion. I was maybe twenty minutes into Assimilate and I just thought, "I'm done. I willingly admit that maybe I didn't give it an adequate chance. Thirty minutes was enough for me to conclude that I had been there, done this...c'mon Netflix, I love you, but really.

    "Terminator: Dark Fate" [5/10]: It's a wild ride. Sarah Connor is back. She'd still like to off T-800 Schwarzenegger — who's been raising a kid in retirement — but that'll have to wait until they're done with the latest class of shapeshifting Terminator, a Rev-9, who's on a mission in Mexico.

    The Assassination of Gianni Versace - 10/10

    Unfortunate name, but easily one of the best TV shows i've ever seen.
    My first thought when seeing this listed was "Why would anyone want to watch this?". Don't do that!
    Pretty much perfect from start to finish and up there with something like "Breaking Bad" and "Chernobyl".
    I actually only bothered to watch this because I liked another series by the same people about the OJ Simpson trial.
    There's a few really disturbing parts without actually showing much violence on screen. Pretty sad too during parts.
    I actually watched probably 6 hours of this in one night and then found myself not being able to sleep!
    There's actually a lot of different storylines in this about many of the different characters and somehow they made them all equally interesting.

    I agree, it made me very uncomfortable and not many things do. The scenes that involved Grumpy were the ones that got to me !

    The Devil Next Door - 9.5/10

    Family man in Cleveland, Ohio is accused of being a Nazi death camp guard named "Ivan the Terrible".
    You may have heard about this before, but if not, it would be best to watch the documentary first and then read up on the trial.
    Found this so good that I watched all 5 or so hours in one night!
    Netflix really does seem to produce the best documentaries.

    Shadow - 4.5/10

    Latest movie from Zhang Yimou.
    Pretty terrible and I found it rather ugly to look at. Might as well have been in black and white (which is perfectly OK).
    Lots of overacting and it's pretty bad when you're almost laughing at death scenes that are supposed to be sad.
    Strangely enough his movie "To Live" helped me get into Asian cinema back when I was 18 (along with films from Akira Kurosawa).
    Back when video stores were around there was one store that had an entire floor filled with foreign films. I miss those days!
    My main problem with this movie is that the story isn't that interesting. Not much fun to sit through and kind of boring.
    The big battle scenes are kind of too ridiculous and more like something you'd see in a video game.

    PS you can rent this for $1.99 on Amazon in HD. I rarely see rentals for that low. Even the purchase price was around $7!

    Zhang Yimou makes visual stunning Cinema.

    Hero was my favorite, with House of flying dagger next, and then Curse of the Golden Flower. His new ones don't seem to get good reviews.

    The Great Wall a flop, no? He shouldn't have went to Hollywood, which toxic and tainted with bad content. Even the name, "The great Wall" sounds like Hollywood cliche garbage.

    I know Bong Joon Ho (Parasite writer/director) will not work on anything he doesn't write and have control over. He will not take Hollywood's mediocre scripts.

    Steamboat Bill Jr - 9/10

    One of the first Buster Keaton movies i've seen. I now need to check into some of his other films.
    It's free on the Tubi TV app (Fire HD etc) if you want to watch it. They have a way better selection of older movies than Netflix!
    Hoping to rent "Our Hospitality" tonight.

    Our Hospitality - 10/10
    Another Buster Keaton movie. Loved it and worth buying someday.
    Hard to believe I went this long without seeing any of his movies.

    Sherlock Jr - 6/10
    This was another Buster Keaton movie that free when I rented the above.
    It's really short and the only good parts are during the final chase sequence.

    What the Health - 10/10

    A must see really. You know what the most frustrating thing about seeing this movie was?
    I learned that the American Diabetes Association, American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen foundation all take money from corporations that sell disease causing foods (that they're trying to cure or prevent!).
    Some of these organizations even have recipes on their websites that require foods with known carcinogens in them (cancer causing).
    You ask anyone in these organizations about specific diets curing disease and they don't want to be interviewed or talk.
    Why? Probably because they would lose money. These days you can probably get sued by the food industry.
    I also am surprised that doctors receive so little education in nutrition. They're in the business to make money and not try to prevent disease.
