2. Manborg (2011) - 6/10
Very enjoyable, but had the potential to be even better.
3. K-PAX (2001) - 6/10
I like the visual style and the twist from fantasy to a more of a thriller, but the religious symbolism was too heavy-handed for me.

Rewatch because Wife hadn't seen it - and her reaction was "cryogenics aside, this is the most believable sci-fi film I've seen." And yeah - this holds up REMARKABLY well. It was fun this time paying attention to all the subtle details and jokes in there that I missed when watching it before.

12. John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City (2018)
Been a while since I watched it with my eyes (I've been falling asleep to Mulaney a bunch lately), and he brings a lot to the table visually that you don't get by just listening to it. Hilarious. His bit on college is amazing, as are the stories of JJ Bittenbinder.

While I don't really watch TV any more I do catch the odd thing my wife/kids are watching when I get home from work. I will try to keep track of them and report them at the end as is my style. And no I won't count my wrestling this year as it caused issues last year.

If it airs on TV, it should count, no? I think we've already had some tv listed -- including reality tv stuff -- so some good old fashion rasslin should be fine, I think.

Winner of Best Actor at Cannes, Marcello Fonte does well as the conflicted protagonist here, too scared to stand up to a violent ex-customer. Clocking in at close to two hours though, the film takes a very long time to make a rather simple point before arriving at an ending that feels needlessly drawn out. Fonte keeps things chugging along though, Alida Baldari Calabria is adorable as his daughter, and the film is loaded with quite a bit of humour.

Does that mean watching live football and baseball counts? It seems a step too far. I was planning to catch up on Hard Knocks and list it, but I didn't think watching games should count.

Sports should not count, no. Hard Knocks is a sports docu series, so it should count. Wrestling is essentially live action theatre, not sports, so IMO it should count. I would say it's a step behind Dancing With the Stars or whatever.

I decided to include TV in this challenge because I would not take away the participants opportunity to watch some quality TV-series (and get rewarded for it). Like Hurluberlu watching The Wire. On the other hand, I wouldn’t want this challenge being spammed with the latest reality shows either. That’s why I went with the 120 min TV rule.

And post whatever. I’m not the police. But Maxwell is stretching it imo, with his celebrity dance show.

The host have watched approximately 240 minutes of television news this month and a couple of (real) football matches. I’m not going to count them here on this film forum for some imaginary internet points though.

Do what you feel is right is what I’m trying to say.

FTV:2:IT:The (Dud) Second Chapter (2019)6/10.

The lone person to return from the writers club of part one, the loss of Chase Palmer and Cary Joji Fukunaga is one greatly felt in Gary Dauberman's adaptation of the second half of the novel, where once each member of the Losers Club was given a progression in their character arc of defeating their fears and a growth in maturity, is here replaced by Dauberman with keeping them all largely in one place, (with only Richie being given the sliver of change.)This is most notable in the poor writing treatment of Beverly,whose suffering of parental/spouse abuse is revealed to leave her with deep scars, none of which leads to a cathartic release that the films had appeared to be building towards.

Staying true to the opening of the adult time-line in the novel with a horrific homophobic attack from thugs, Dauberman begins a recurrent theme of presenting what should be major events in the Losers Clubs lives,only to leave them hanging,from the opening attack, to Bill trying to save a child who gets killed by Pennywise, leading to Bill crying for five minutes, only to completely move on and no hint of the psychological effect it has had on him being offered. Bringing a new Comedy element into the tale, for the first hour Dauberman actually makes it work, via the sarcastic jokes they share actually establishing the bonds the adult Losers Club share, which builds to a Chinese meal reunion set-piece (the highlight of the film) that balances laughs with Pennywise shocks.

Digging “going underground” (both physical & mentally) as being the main theme of the title, Dauberman shovels up the suppressed memories of the Losers Club,and buries the film. Going into long individual flashbacks,Dauberman takes them to a repetitive dead-end,due to Pennywise clearly not being a threat in the sequences due to it being flashbacks,and all of them going round in circles which instead of adding depth to the characters, lands on miss-placed gags. Running a gag across the film that people hate the ending,Dauberman ends the adult time line in the Losers Club epic fight on a hollow note, because of a failure by Dauberman to build arcs underground, but incredibly,at the last minute finds the spirit of the first IT,and delivers a touchingly poetic quality to the fading childhood days of the Losers Club.

Craning down to the Losers Club on their bikes, returning director Andy Muschietti displays in his close working with cinematographer Checco Varese, (replacing Chan-wook Park’s regular cinematographer, the far superior Chung-hoon Chung,who did IT 1) a striking skilfulness in capturing a fading memory of childhood summer days atmosphere, spinning on long crane/panning shots of the Loser Club kids cycling down the sun-lit streets of Derry. Continuing a motif first drawn in Mama, (2013-also reviewed) Muschietti links the chapters with excellent, highly-stylised transition shots/ overlapping images,turning the pages to the unresolved childhood traumas overlapping in the adult lives of the Losers Club,and in the two stand-out jump-scares, (in a house of mirrors and at a sports game) Muschietti offers a glimpse of using shadows in making Pennywise an imposing figure.

Making a drastic change from the first, Muschietti places most of the jump-scares to take place in daylight,which without the aide of the gloomy lighting from part 1, in the cold light of day look shockingly poor, amateur hour,flat CGI creations. Going underground for the final, Muschietti and Varesecharge at the End of Level Boss the films have been building towards, and ruins it all by covering the entire 40 minute set-piece in strobe lighting which jabs the viewer in the eyes,and makes it almost un-watchable. When not masked in a overload of naff CGI, Bill Skarsgård makes a chilling return as the animalistic Pennywise, whilst Bill Hader gives the stand out performance in the Losers Club as Richie,thanks to Hader using his comedic skill of giving out dead-pan one-liners,to actually build a character arc for Richie,with Hader capturing Richie’s gradual fear that they are all about to write their final chapter in life.

And post whatever. I’m not the police. But Maxwell is stretching it imo, with his celebrity dance show.
Hey hey hey - it's a dance show NOT a celebrity dance show. :P

My main defense of it is that there's some fantastic dance/performance art in there. There's also tons of inane shit you have to slog through to get to the quality dancing, but that's the price you have to pay.

My reason for including it is my small rebellion against the concept of this challenge (which I may have mentioned in the planning thread). Not changing my viewing behavior, but just reporting what I happen to watch.

(Also not really talking at you specifically, 72a, just providing an explanation)

This is basically Die Hard, but replace John McClane with the three idiots from Workaholics. If that sounds interesting to you (it did to me), you'll probably enjoy this film. Not a great film by any means, but fun and enjoyable. And if you're wondering if they went there, they did.

14. Wine Country (2019)
Amy Poehler's directorial debut. A bunch of friends head to Napa valley to celebrate the 50th birthday of one of them. This was fun - quite a bit of age-related humor, which really hit home for the wife and I. Some really weird stuff, too, which made it even more fun.

Thanks dear... :P She's actually hilarious (Tom Segura's wife, if that even remotely matters; I just think it's fun to know who she's talking about when she complains about her husband) with quite a few laugh-out-loud moments. I find her delivery just a tad slow, but that's my only complaint. Quite enjoyable.

The Rookie is a mediocre cop drama starring Nathan Fillion as an LAPD rookie in his 40s; each episode is fine and entertaining enough, but doesn't really do anything special. IASIP is always awesome, and I think they're doing some cool stuff this season. SYTYCD has really upped their camera work to highlight the dancing, and the choreographers are taking advantage. Scrubs is a classic I always love and thought it was due for a rewatch. Chopped was simply because Wife and I spent all day cooking and felt like we should watch other people cooking.

23 Still Walking (2008)
24 Antarctica: A Year on Ice (2013)
25 Booksmart (2019)

As a formulaic coming of age HS comedy, Booksmart is good fun. As everything else it tries to be, it's a trucking trainwreck. Absolutely tone deaf, almost embarrassingly so. You would be forgiven thinking this was penned by a right wing nutjob to lampoon/satirize the stereotype of ignorant rich white bubble-dwelling liberal savior types. This would only be excusable if the film was self-aware and the behavior of these characters was meant to portray well-meaning youthful naivete, but there are too many things that sadly indicate that's not the case. The MALALA stuff was tough to watch. Having your one prominent POC be a teacher that fucks a student for laughs . . . how did no one say STOP NO NO DO NOT PUT THAT IN THE MOVIE. This shit won't age well. But still, watchable due to some compelling performances. It's basically a dumber version of Superbad, which is unfortunately ironic given both its reception and intention.

8. Ocean's Eight (2018) REVISION

Image

While many of the plot specifics are strikingly similar to Ocean's Eleven, this is a fun film that stands up well on its own. The character dynamics are great and most of the performances are spot-on - particularly Anne Hathaway's parody of herself. The twist involving her does not really stack up to revision; same goes for the ridiculous final twist. This is though a generally well paced, energetic look at revenge, friendship and challenging oneself.

Both were better than I expected though not quite good.

16. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)
Dull everyman re-evaluates life and evolves in quirky dramedy. Reminded me of Stranger Than Fiction, and a half-dozen other movies made in the past 20 years. Uneven comedy.

17. Mortal Engines (2018)
I'm always interested in post-apocalyptic stories. The visuals here were great, and so was the set-up, with some intriguing concepts. But the narrative and characters never amounted to much.

06. La chute d'un corps, by Michel Polac (1973) 8/10

A very strange film about sect influence. Definitely a hidden gem...

07. 1BR, by David Marmor (2019) 7,5/10

A thrilling film about conditionning. Very interesting and intense.

08. The Art of Self Defense, by Riley Stearns (2019) 7,5/10

Jesse Eisenberg finds himself a karate teacher... Funny and thought-provoking as well.

09. The Wretched, by Brett & Drew Pierce (2019) 4/10

If you enjoy variations on the eighties-teenagers investigating unusual/supernatural situations, you may neglect the cliches and enjoy the story, I guess.

10. The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale, by Min-jae Lee (2019) 7,5/10

A nice zombie comedy, with a few creative ideas...

11. Ying, by Zhang Yi-Mou (2018) 8/10

Very beautiful and elegant, this is certainly extending the work from the Flying Daggers previous films. Quite admirable.

12. Aragne: Sign of Vermillion, by Saku Sakamoto (2018) 7/10

13. Idol / Woosang, by Lee Su-Jin (2019) 4/10

Too many subjects, too long, too confusing to really be interesting, even though some sequences work well...
That's what they call movies, nowadays... (05)Show
01. Rurôni Kenshin: Meiji kenkaku roman tan, by Keishi Ohtomo (2012) 7,5/10
