Avengers Endgame.

 

Fitting conclusion to this phase of MCU, a bit slow paced but then it's a 3h movie so that was expected. Let's see what new heroes will be introduced in the next phase. Moon Knight is actually planned but he may, or may not be arriving soon, since that can happen in "5, 10, or 15 years". Really hope it's going to be 5, after countless attempts to bring him on the screen but with none of those materializing.

 

Gonna miss the actors whose contracts had ended for sure.

Avengers Infinity War.

 

Saw that yesterday and quite enjoyed it. I say I'm not into super heroes, then I'll watch a super hero movie and like it. I have a chance to go see End Game for free next week, so I should take that up now that I want to know what happens next.

Oh, I was thinking you meant to say Endgame. Your post makes more sense that way.

Also Saw Endgame recently and It was good, despite finding the first hour really slow.

Watched a couple more Beineix films.

 

Moon in the Gutter (1983) - it's a technical masterpiece, but the story is very "been-there-done-that" and the characters' motives are either unexplainable or random. Very uneven as a whole.

 

Roselyne and the Lions (1989) - this is basically Betty Blue (a film by the same director), only with a circus twist. It's watchable, but the two main characters lack the intense chemistry that "Betty" had. Better than "Moon", and certainly watchable, even at 3 hours, but uneven too.

Zombie Flesh Eaters (1979) - AKA Zombi, AKA Zombie 2. Yep, that's right. Anyway, this is a technically sound film: director Fulci's use of zooms and his shot composition is really good. The special effects are top-notch as well. The acting seems fine, but the dubbing can be a bit overbearing, and some of the characters' actions are pretty dumb. Overall though, pretty good. The best scene is a zombie fighting a shark.

I finally saw The Simpsons Movie. It was every bit as good as I thought it would be, i.e., just like a really long episode of the Simpsons. It was really kind of a downer note that I wasn't watching this on the big screen; it would have looked awesome.

  Not to spoil anything for anybody else, but it just seemed to me that it was a touch more vulgar than the tv show. In terms of "bad language", The Simpsons is pretty mild when you compare it to the 2010's television, but it's still kind of surprising to me when they cross one of those boundaries; I remember it was kind of shocking when Ned Flanders had his first flip out in the television series; A lashing out against his hippie parents. We're talking about a tv show that early on got a lot of bad press for saying things 'sucked' or telling people to 'get bent'. The audience had to laugh at Bill Cosby's show until it took a lower spot in the ratings. So people hung an onion on their belt, which was the style at the time, and learned to drink their cares away with a big Duff beer. I don't these new offenses are the final outrage for The Simpsons. 

  All these things considered equal, I recommend this movie to fans of the show, and to any newcomers. Fans will be delighted with tongue in check musings at the differences between the show and the silver screen. Newcomers will get to see a really great movie; Visually stunning, relevant comic wit, and a lot of Doh.

The Running Man. It still holds up well to this day, the entire concept is pretty brilliant. And BTW...

 

Spoiler

Buzzsaw's death is fucking hilarious, that scream he does kills what should've been a very gruesome death.

Captain Marvel 7/10
Went in with quite low expectations for this given a lot of negative press. Personally I quite enjoyed the movie.

A few days ago I saw Detective Pikachu. I'm not really into Pokemon anymore, but I really enjoyed this. It was funny, charming, well-acted, and had some solid action sequences. 

 

Last night I felt like watching Blade Runner for maybe the 5th time. I'm going to have to see 2049 for the second time pretty soon, as I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it.

Habfürdő (Foam Bath, 1980)

A Hungarian animated film that takes as much advantage of its' medium as possible, with characters changing model to reflect their emotions.

It is also known for being the worst-performing film in the country of all times, ending the directors' career before it even started.

Here is the full version of it on youtube with subs:

Viy.

 

Russian or Ukranian "horror" film that was barred fron export by the Soviet Union for quite a few years. It was a rather old film that has a rather epic scene near the end.

Starting to get into avant-garde / experimental cinema, so what better to start with than Un chien andalou (1929), by Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dalí. This film is filled with great imagery (of course, there's the eye with the razor) and it's really bizarre to say the least. I suppose it's dream-logic, and the film explores human creativity or something? That's my take. In any case, it's really worth a watch. You can find it on YouTube easily.

Fist of Fury.

 

Bruce Lee delivers once again, I've only seen Enter the Dragon and Way of the Dragon before, and this one is just as good as hey are, but the video and audio quality are significantly worse than both. Let's see what I'm gonna watch next now, definitely want more of Bruce Lee, and action stuff a la Hard Boiled.

Good movies. I have those on VHS i believe, in a bin somewhere (unless i sold those). 

 

I haven't been watching any movies lately but i just wanted to say that Bruce Lee and his son Brandon Lee rule. May they both R.I.P.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World - 7.5/10
Excellent animation which is to be expected really, the baddie was a bit formulaic & nothing we haven't seen before, but on the whole it was an entertaining and an enjoyable way to draw an end the adventures of Hiccup & Toothless the dragon.

During the weekend when visiting my parents I watched:

Van Helsing

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The Maze Runner and its sequel The Scorch Trials (left the third part for next time)

 

The logic for the maze in The Maze Runner was a little weird. Why would anyone build giant mazes with monsters and put people immune to a virus to the maze to try and find a cure for the virus. How exactly does that help in finding a cure when the test subjects are running around in a maze avoiding monsters. Sure the maze and monster design were pretty cool.

Mulholland Drive (2001) - dreams and nightmares [typically] run[ning] amok in David Lynch's psychological thriller mystery. I loved the dream logic of this, and also the themes relating to artistic integrity and Hollywood fantasies. An art film in every sense of the word.

The Maze Runner films are - believe it or not - only about 15% as stupid as the books on which they are based.

The Maltese Falcon.

 

Had never seen it before, but it's definitely a classic for a reason. I love how Bogart's character always keeps a cool composure and the ways he confronts the antagonists.

I actually have that on DVD, but have yet to watch it. I'm a huge fan of Salvador Dali's paintings, so I should make it a point to finally watch it.

Wizards (1977)

Ralph Bakshis' attempt to make an animated film suitable for kids; whether or not he succeeded at that, he did succeed at making a trippy fantasy adventure with amazing artwork. It has some political commentary thrown into it too, but since its' a Bakshi film that's kinda expected.

Here's the full version of it on Youtube:
