I saw that today.

Really frustrating film. There's a great 100-120 minute film somewhere in there, but there's so much filler bullshit in the middle that it ends up being a chore to watch. It starts and ends incredibly well, everything before Cooper goes to space and after Matt Damon gets exploded is spot on, but the stuff in between is just dreadful.

It just feels like a concession to the genre. It's a big budget sci-fi blockbuster, so we have to cram some exploding spaceships and crazy water CGI action in there. Don't get me started on Matt Damon's character, who feels entirely out of place, like he's been lifted out of a much dumber movie and dropped down into this one.

It's a bunch of boring filler that gets in the way of the real story, which is the relationship between Cooper and Murph. If the film had kept it's focus it could have been great, as it is I'm not even sure I can say I enjoyed it, despite how much I loved parts of it in isolation.

Hmm. I actually thought the film got more interesting again when they got to Matt Damon. I was getting a bit tired of all the drama between the point where Cooper left Murphy to where they arrived at Dr. Mann's planet. I felt like that whole sequence on the water planet could have been cut entirely.

But yeah, perhaps the film should have focussed more on either the father-daughter relationship or on the "survival of mankind" plot. They did seem to distract from each other a bit.

It's probably best to go see this one in the cinema because of the awesome cinematography.
You get to see it in 35mm? Cinema I saw it at was hyping that up as a big deal, but it didn't do a whole lot for me. We're at the stage where digital is as good as 35mm, so it was more of a novelty than anything else. Have only ever seen older prints shown like that before, but with a new, clean one I might not even have noticed had it not been pointed out. Not like getting to see something in 70mm, which is still an incredible experience.

Not as far as I know. I think they only had a regular version and an IMAX version at my cinema. I went to the regular screening.

Surely you realize how ridiculous and off-putting this sounds. What world are we living in and how do I get home?

Sorry, I'm not entirely sure what you mean here.

Do you mean the length of the film? If so: Yes, it's 169 minutes long. It didn't feel like (almost) three hours to me though; I've sat through shorter films that seemed longer.

I got The Evil Dead Trilogy recently and watched the first film last night. I thought it was going to be more black comedy than just straight up horror but actually rather liked it and I'm not really someone who watches many horror films. Looking forward to seeing the next two films, although I notice they both have lower age ratings than the original, so I guess that means they're going to be a bit different.

Some of the possession scenes were pretty freaky. Ash's girlfriend in particular for me. There's something creepy about turning around and seeing someone appear, sat on the floor with a weird facial expression and creepy laugh.

It's actually quite a nice box set though. Plenty of extras and documentaries on these discs.

The first film is straight horror, it only becomes horror/comedy afterwards. Probably the weakest of the three because of it, Ash doesn't become one of the greatest film characters ever until the second.

I've got a DVD on the first one that looks like the Necronomicon. All rubbery and cheap feeling, though.

That sounds pretty cool in a creepy way. This physical box set it nothing special. Just a standard bluray box with 3 discs packed in it but it was only a little more than £10 so figured it was well worth checking out at that price. Plus Jackho has been telling me to watch these for a while now.

I've got the first film and Army of Darkness on blu-ray, but need to pick up 2 at some point. 2 might be the best of them, actually.

Just got done watching it now and I do like it slightly better than the first. It's a bit strange watching the first film and then watching the second soon after, seeing as The Evil Dead 2 is pretty much just an altered remake of the original. Well, that's how I'd describe it anyway. Different enough to feel like a totally different film but has enough in common to make it feel like a remake type thing.

I might watch Army of Darkness tonight but I think I'll probably save it for another day. If I do end up watching another film today it will probably be Alfred Hitchcock's Topaz. It's the third last film I have in that set but I hear it's not particularly good.

Yes. I'm finding it increasingly frustrating how long every type of film is getting and how no one seems bothered by it. Saying an entire 90 holyfucking minutes of this film is bad then claiming it's worth seeing just sounds ridiculous. An entire film's runtime being dismissed like it's just one act.

So yeah I think I'll skip interstellar. The runtime alone is off putting even if it was all quality.

I think all three are great. Check out the remake as well. It's actually quite good. I went in with not much in the way of expectations and ended up enjoying it.

Well I wasn't saying it was bad, I just "didn't like it much".

I do not really like the trend of every major film being well over two hours long nowadays either. However, in Interstellar's case, I wasn't bothered by the runtime so much because the second half of the film was exciting enough.

I recommend an old 1970's movie called Man Friday. Also speaking of 70s movies there's another tropical film called cannibal holocaust which is my favorite horror one, but it's probably one of the most evil things you'll see, filled with real death. So I'd suggest only those with a good stomach and a toughness to watch that, but it's worth it if you're a horror fan.

Decided I'm going to re-watch all the Harry Potter films because why the fuck not. I've not seen most of these since they were released and I think I stopped going to see them at the cinema after Goblet of Fire. The only one I don't think I've seen is the very last film, and I actually took my younger sister to see the one before that at the cinema and remember really wanting to see the conclusion but never got around to it.

Philosophers Stone as held up far better than I thought it would. I expected the actors to look like they're 5 years old and for the whole thing to look a lot shitter than I remember it, but it was actually really good. Enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Starting to think this was a good decision!

Watched The Babadook, and that fucking stock sound effect they used for the creature kept pulling me right out of it. Like a Wilhelm scream every time it's on screen.

This one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GyOYaDHquE&feature=youtu.be&t=1m50s

From The Land Before Time originally, used in fucking everything else.

Almost as bad as when films reuse the Jurassic Park roars.

Three films into Harry Potter now and it's still holding up. Found that I Was considerably less familiar with The Prisoner of Azkaban than I was with the first two films. I must have watched the first two films a ton of times when I was younger because I realised that I was able to remember a lot of the lines and the way people said certain things. It's hard to explain but it was weird to remember things like that from a film that I haven't seen in a long, long time.

I've seen Goblet of Fire more times than I've seen Prisoner of Azkaban, but still been a while since I've seen this and I'll probably watch it some time this afternoon. Once I'm done with Goblet of Fire though, I'll only have seen the remaining films once, if at all. I can't remember off hand anything about the films from 5 onwards.

Still got Army of Darkness to watch at some point as well. I think I'll probably end up watching that later tonight.

Not really cinema but yesterday I watched the entire Spaced series, which was pretty cool given that I recently watched the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy. It was pretty interesting to see where those films originated from I guess. Good series too.

Ralph Garman is gonna be in a Syfy channel movie called Lavalantula. This might be the first one I decide to watch just cuz he's awesome. Also, Steve Gutenberg and Michael Winslow.

I think they used the same sound in Sorcerous Stabber Orphen for Azalie/the Bloody August. It was first used in the Land Before Time?

just finished fitzcarraldo

been seeing too many slow films lately and this one certainly wore me down in the middle. still, there are certainly some incredible scenes, my favorite one screencapped below. i also like that it manages to pull off a disney-channel message like, "follow your dreams!" in a way that's profound, jaw-dropping (tfw you realize that fucking boat was actually pulled over the mountain) and strangely funny

i would like to hear why you guys love it so much tho. i'm sure i'll come back to it in a year or two and love it more than ikiru but for now, it's another one of those i respect greatly but would be hard-pressed to say i love

According to Letterboxd, I just hit my 100th film this year. That's a massive amount of films for me to get through in a year. Previously I feel like I'd only have seen a handful of films in a year.

Got a free month of Netflix just now so I've been trying to watch films on there that I wouldn't normally have bought on Blu-ray for whatever reason. Filth, Of Mice and Men and Stand By Me being the three I've seen so far. They were all pretty decent watches, nothing amazing though. Filth was quite interesting given that it's in Edinburgh, which I didn't know prior to watching the film. There were a couple moments that had me thinking "Hey, I've been there!". Strange film though.

I'll probably browse their selection some more to look for films that sound decent that I haven't heard of before.

I'd wanted to do at least 365 this year, but that fell by the wayside months ago. I'm on 208 now, and did 205 last year, so it's an improvement at the very least. Maybe shoot for 250 by the end, but ~225 is probably more reasonable.

Filth was quite interesting given that it's in Edinburgh, which I didn't know prior to watching the film. There were a couple moments that had me thinking "Hey, I've been there!".

Get "Sunshine on Leith" watched. It's the better Edinburgh film from last year. Thought Filth was pretty decent, mind. Loved Sunshine on Leith.

Thus far, I've only seen 46 films this year. Has a lot to do with me cancelling my cinema subscription last January I suppose.

I've been watching some Disney films I've missed out on during my childhood:

Alice in Wonderland - Not one of Disney's best, but still enjoyable enough and probably about as good as an Alice in Wonderland adaptation can get. I particularly liked the animation. The music isn't that memorable though.

Mulan - I'm not sure what to think of Eddie Murphy here. On the one hand he's probably the most entertaining thing about this film, on the other hand I feel like he totally doesn't belong. Anyway, I think this one is also quite enjoyable. The battle scene at the snow peak is very impressive. I do feel like the bad guys lacked character though. In fact, they might be the least memorable villains ever in a Disney film.

epic Wynn!

My sis and I watched that quite a few times as kids. We also watched the two live action made for TV movies from the '80s with Sammy Davis Jr. Johnathan Winters, Phyllis Diller etc. I also watched the shit out of these two Betty Boop tapes my grandparents had, one of which had Betty in Blunderland (catch the Ed Wynn caricature @1:30 lol).

duh, Wynning!

I don't think I've watched that from beginning to end since I saw it in the theater. What other Disney movies did you miss?

I think I watched most of the major ones, but for some it's been like 20 years and I can hardly remember anything about them.

What I definitely haven't seen:
Fantasia 2000
Robin Hood
The Fox and the Hound
The Aristocats

and many of the post-2000 ones.

I'm not sure about Bambi and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

I think I've seen all of these except the Fox and the Hound but I believe I've only seen the Aristocats and Fantasia 2000 once each and can't really remember them. Haven't seen Bambi or Robin Hood since I was in the single digits. As far as post-2000, outside of Pixar, the Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch stand out in my mind as well as Wreck-It Ralph. I recall liking Treasure Planet when it came out, but I was 12 so I dunno.

The Fox and the Hound was one of my favorites as a child. It's easily been a decade since I watched it last though, and How to Train Your Dragon is probably the same basic story done way better. I didn't enjoy Wreck it Ralph at all but Emperor's New Groove and Lilo & Stitch are top notch.

Also while we're talking Disney, Big Hero 6 doesn't come out over here until 30th January. Fuck that shit.

so i just finished watching the deer hunter

repugnant, self-important, nonsensical, melodramatic trash that has no right to go on for as long as it does and has probably the worst dialogue i've heard from any film to win the best picture oscar. only redeeming features are it's admittedly gorgeous cinematography and infamous russian roulette scenes which are still blunt and ultimately pointless
