And I'll probably never get around to see it in my life since I don't want to watch it before watching all previous Marvels. Problem is I don't really want to watch those previous Marvels either.

I've skipped around the marvel movies. You really don't need to watch them in order. Maybe just the avengers ones if you want to understand some of the weird story nonsense. Of course they are among the worst of the lot.

Is Tolkien (2019) any good ?
I'm obliged to watch it as an avid Tolkien books collector but the movie doesn't seem so special at all.

It’s been popping up on a few ‘best horror of 2019’ lists, I don’t watch trailers but I hope it’s gonna be decent... doesn’t seem like it’s my kind of thing though.

Movie 43. I love that one. Comedy pushed way beyond the realm of what's acceptable. I've seen it a few times and laugh every single time. I watched it in April and laughed, rewatched it the next night with my wife and we both laughed, then showed one of the skits to my parents and grandparents who all laughed.

The New York Film Festival has set The Irishman, Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story, and Motherless Brooklyn as their opening night film, centerpiece, and closing night film, respectively. Their closing night pick is usually a little idiosyncratic but the first two are strong indicators that they will do well in Oscar season.

I just really wish Netflix had put out a better-looking trailer for The Irishman. Using the same type of inter-titles they use on all of their generic made-for-TV output on the next Scorsese is really cringe-inducing, IMO (the trailer is also just poorly edited - see the trailer for The Departed, for example, as a frame of reference).

I have one favourite on that list as well; The Creeping Terror.

But god Movie 43 was horrible, you’re crazy Max :P I’m surprised I only gave it a 4, but I guess it was the Smerch factor.

Religion is hard to make fun of because you have to understand something to make fun of it, and the effort required is very large. Once you've lived and breathed it you probably don't want to make fun of it. When people make jokes about religion they're usually cringeworthy.

I'm not sure why RT labeled some of those films as "daring" (daring=subtitles?) but there's some interesting titles in there. Personally not a fan of Holiday, a film that I thought wasn't nearly as smart or incisive as it seemed to think it is, but I'll at least co-sign the quality of films like An Elephant Sitting Still, Diamantino, and Rafiki. Certainly interested in Too Late to Die Young, Funan, Pause, The Burial of Kojo and All is Well.

I liked Holiday because it made me think - I thought were a lot of well-constructed shots, and it certainly got under my skin. It was hard to watch, and it did NOT go in the direction I thought/hoped it would, but I'm still glad I watched it. 7/10 for me.

Only seen An Elephant Sitting Still from this list. I would not call it "daring", but certainly a great film. Looks like a selection to keep in mind.

Depends on your definition of negative. If we take Bergman's mildly sympathetic but fundamentally critical and questioning as the baseline for negative, I'd say his films, Day of Wrath, Häxan and Breaking the Waves. The Bressons are kinda weird in being somewhat negative depictions but clearly pro-christianity.

Bergman depicts characters with existential angst, or rather religious doubts, but i would not call them critical of religion as such. However in Fanny & Alexander the depiction of at least one priest, and by extension Christianity itself, is overwhelmingly negative.
