Winter’s Bone. Debra Granik. 2010. ★★★★★☆
Robert Burns: 😒
Chocolat. Claire Denis. 1988. ★★★★★☆
Red Snapper: 😒
For a Kai War Wong movie, this looks kinda… different…
Would I be paranoid if I started thinking that they put the wrong DVD in the cover?
Still not sure.
Oh, I don’t care. This is awesome.
In The Mood For Love. Kar Wai Wong. 2000. ★★★★★☆
Planter’s Punch: 😃
There are many things I love about 30s musical comedies. Their verisimilitude is astounding. What you see here is the engine room of an ocean liner.
But you have to wonder whether the casting choice for the machine room is a commentary on something.
Wow. So machinery. Much technical.
Shall We Dance. Mark Sandrich. 1937. ★★★★★☆
Piña colada: 😃
Bottle Rocket. Wes Anderson. 1996. ★★★☆☆☆
Perhaps I’m just generally down on the entire “hapless young-ish men fumble around” genre. Perhaps it’s just fatigue from seeing yet another Bechdel-test-failing movie. Perhaps this movie is good. But I don’t see it.
Pisco Sour: 😃
Kids with their ghetto blasters at the beach. Tsk.
Menschen am Sonntag. Kurt Siodmak, Robert Siodmak, Edgar G. Ulmer, Fred Zinnemann & Rochus Gliese. 1930. ★★★☆☆☆
Batida de maracujá: 😃
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Michael Bay. 2009. ★★★★☆☆
I liked this movie. It was entertaining and surprisingly funny. However, it had the obligatory boring infodump scenes, and the So Much Drama scenes, and went on far too long. If they’d cut an hour, it would have been a good movie.
