It ain't enough, Papi" LOL LOL Where the previous "Rambo" may very well have achieved the record for on film decapitations, this film seeks to attain the record for the most horrible ways to die. Oh, and don't worry they threw in a few decapitations for you. lol The moral of this movie is that "Human Trafficing ain't as easy as it looks" lol Especially if you manage to piss off, Rambo!!!

    I gave this film 6 out of 6 Machete's!!!
    I am pumped for this. Watching it tonight.

    Rambo was awful. The 2008 Rambo was so much better.

    Saw Cats, yes, Cats. My youngest daughter is obsessed with Taylor Swift, so we had to go. The local paper gave it a horrible review, .5/4 stars. I went in with really low expectations. It was truly watchable. Ian McKellen was quite excellent. I'd give it a 6/10.

    Since when did 'having fun' mean 'ignoring everything you don't like and being dishonest with yourself to feign enjoyment'? I have plenty of fun watching movies. I'm on my way to spend the rest of tonight having fun watching The Irishman with my friend, just as we had fun the other night watching Marriage Story. We find good movies enhances our fun.

    The Irishman was a good film, but I didn't love it as others do. Then again, Scorsese's mob films haven't hit with me as they have with others. The performances were all really good, however. It was kind of interesting seeing all three of these guys play against their more typical characters when it comes to Scorsese's mob stuff. I thought the first hour was really strong and the last 30 minutes were really strong. It sagged a bit in the middle for me. The de-aging stuff didn't bother me at all and I hardly noticed it...except when Middle-aged DeNiro beat the guy up with the veracity of 75 year old DeNiro that I kind of noticed it. It made me glad they didn't have DeNiro doing too much physicality because that was the only time his age showed when he was younger in the film. I think the only real problem I had with the film was the pacing. I like nice and slow films, but there were parts that weren't particularly engaging or entertaining and some of the banter just didn't work for me, like the stuff about the fish, which normally don't really faze me, but when the film is 200 minutes long, you feel it more. A lot of the film felt inert, which I suppose is by design as it's a reflective piece about old men growing old; even some of the scenes with big crowds and screaming and lots of stuff happening on the screen lacked the energy of similar scenes in Wolf of Wall Street from just a few years ago. I imagine if I were a bigger fan of his mob flicks that intangible I felt this film to be lacking wouldn't be lacking, but such as it is. More than anything, it's the kind of film I will rewatch and hope to appreciate it more because I have a feeling there is a lot to appreciate here, too much to cover on one viewing.

    4/5

    Ari Aster had some great words to say on The Irishman: https://variety.com/2019/film/spotli...qXIjMe9RCSzNPI

    You have got to be kidding me. Man I cannot get you..... to hate Star Wars and love this? Yeah that makes no sense. We are talking the same film right? B/W and 2 hours of them bantering back and forth?

    Agreed. The acting was stellar and the storyline was quite underperforming.

    Yep, was hard to look at him, he looked like claymation. Story was predictable and out there. I would still have watched knowing all this, itís Rambo

    Lighthouse is my No. 2 of the year, right behind Midsommar. That movie is freakin mesmerizing. Just waiting for it to drop on Amazon Prime so I can watch it again.

    I will give cinematography... that was good too. But you need a story and a plot. Sorry... I am shocked anyone would put this at the top of their list or even in the top 10

    The story and the plot of The Lighthouse was two men in isolation going insane together.

    I don't know else the plot could be. Everything else is down to character development and theme.

    Knives Out is a solid flick. The kind of movie that relies on the acting to pull off and the cast did a remarkable job. The plot is intriguing, but not the most intriguing mystery film I've seen, but it has some fun with the tropes of the murder mystery genre. As I write this I went on IMDB to get the name of the central actress to see a video about Rian Johnson talking about the perfect plot twist and I will say there wasn't any twist in Knives Out that wasn't obvious at all or not too far off what I assumed. I think the major flaw of the film is it so bluntly highlights certain things that there really isn't much mystery and the final bits of the exposition are a little convoluted, but Craig is so entertaining during it that I forgave the film. It's hard for me to criticize a film harshly for being too structured in an age where the average film can't even be assed to half-ass structure.

    If you're looking for a dense mystery full of twists and turns, Knives Out isn't it (though it may surprise you more than it did me), but if you want to see a fine ensemble chew the scenery and have fun for two hours, then Knives Out is it. That's why I went to see it, and I was satisfied with what I got.
