The Movie Thread
#1
We need a thread about movies.  We all love a good movie, right?  So, post about a recent or recommended movie that you've seen that others should watch.  Try and think of movies that other people may not have seen.

I'll start with Hereditary.  Creepy, scary, amazing acting and a gradually escalating sense of dread.  There are very few actual moments of gore..Rather it relies on building tension by the interplay and dynamics of the suffering family.  Definitely recommended.

The Sleepers/Bez Vědomí (2019)

[Image: MV5BZmVkYzRkZjgtNDY4Yi00YTE5LTlhOWItYjZl...@._V1_.jpg]

Since we often discuss Eastern Europe, Russia vs. the West etc., this series, among other things, illustrates how the situation was in 1989 in Czechoslovakia and what are the implications for today. Overall, it's excellent psychological/espionage drama with multi-layered story (MI6 vs KGB vs StB) and characters that act oportunistically/contextually rather than good/bad, as well as beautiful visual, they collaborated with CIA experts as well to have realistic wiretaps etc, so give it a shot.
It's on HBO GO, 6 hours, 6x1 hour episode.

Well, Czechs speak Czech, Russians speak Russian and Brits speak English in it Big Grin All subtitled to English. That's as proper as it gets. Fuck Chernobyl with it's English speaking Ukrainians, that's lame Smile

I recommend it only because my little town's train station plays in it for about 1 minute, OBVIOUSLY.  Cool

Let's face it, you don't have much choice in movies now with James Bond played by black lesbian in a wheelchair, Asian cowboys and White slaves in your "western" movies, haha. Big Grin Let's fill the quotas, comrades![Image: lynch.jpg?itok=JKSC-BhM]

That movie is going to absolutely TANK at the box office, I am sure.  It's a real slap in the face for British people, James Bond is in our DNA.  A black female bond? Ridiculous.

Basically, I don't watch new movies. Can't be bothered with all the PC shit, find the plot of most of them retarded.

Last film I've seen was Winter Light from Ingmar Bergman, a old black and white movie (you can find it on Youtube). The speech of the priests mistress is extremely red pill, this thing would not be allowed in cinemas nowadays. Don't watch it if you're planning to go out later, will make you sad and thinking.

Having a black woman take over 007 is as ridiculous as the movie executive who suggested that Julia Roberts (who is white) play Harriet Tubman (who is black). They at the very least could've picked a hot black woman - I have longer hair than Lashana Lynch does.

I was pretty upset when James Bond stopped fighting communists, and now having James Bond leave MI6 to be replaced by her to fill 007? Who is going to sleep with the hot Russian spies now? This is definitely political correctness taken too far. I'm definitely staying home when this movie hits the theaters.

Rediscovered my joy in old school movies recently.  First up was The Color Of Money.  This was considered to be a disappointment in the Martin Scorcese canon but it's actually one of my favourites.

Tom Cruise and Paul Newman at the peak of his powers.  Fast Eddie Felson teaching a young whipper snapper all about pool hustling...And then discovering his former love for the game.  I like it so much because I am a keen pool player and even if I say so myself...I'm pretty good!

If you want to see where it all started, watch The Hustler (1961) filmed in glorious Black and White.  The average low IQ short attention span moron of todays times won't be able to stand it, but we're superior on this forum right? I love it.  Paul Newman as a much younger man player the worlds best pool player (but a "born loser"), Fast Eddie Felson.

Yestarday I've been at movies to see Irishman.
Every one is impressed how Scorsese, DeNiro, Pesci, and one of my favorite Pacino can play well at their fair age.
Fiml is good, but for me its to long, but not only byt timelengt (210min) but with periods with no action.
Also the ending is full unnecesary nostalgic scens.
Normaly I would rate 6/10 but i will give a point up for remeindig me child days movies...

I was gonna go see this until my mate informed me it's on Netflix!  Plus I can not stomach De Niro much nowadays due to his outspoken faux tough guy playacting about Trump.

In regards to Paul Newman my favourite of his films are of course Cool Hand Luke, but also Somebody Up There Likes Me (a good early film of his) and also Hombre which I think is an underrated Western. Not really a fan of Tom Cruise, his best films were in the late 80's, he's been in a lot of shit since then. Born on the Fourth of July is his best film in my opinion, and I do actually think he could've won an Oscar for that performance.
