I forgot Burn After Reading - THAT'S Brad's best...
Good Morning Vietnam is probably the only good movie that I've seen Robin Williams do.
While I was over there I listened to Adrian Cronauer as an Air Force DJ in Vietnam.
I was in my 70s the first time
I wanna see True Romance.
I Was a Male War Bride, undoubtedly Cary Grant's funniest movie and perhaps the funniest movie of all time. Cary Grant once declared it his funniest movie and that's saying something.
It is a pretty generic revenge movie but it was well done. I liked it better than The Gentlemen.. But I've never been a huge fan of Ritchie's usual style, with a couple exceptions. Snatch being the main one.
Fightclub gets my vote for his best work but I haven't seen his Hollywood Tarantino movie yet ...
Pitt said in an interview with Ed Norton that Fightclub is the best movie he's ever made in his own opinion.
In the last month:
Army of the Dead - 3.5/5
I love Zack Snyder's style. The opening sequence was phenomenal. Great action sequences. It's rare when an action movie gets you invested in more than one or two characters, and this did that with minimal dialogue.
Tenet - 3/5
I finally got around to watching this recently and was pretty disappointed. I'm not a movie goer who absolutely needs to understand everything, but this was just too abstract and didn't make up for it in other areas. It's not horrible though.
Bacurau - 4/5
Brazilian movie, starts out weird and kinda slow but picks up and finishes with a bang.
The Hitman's Bodyguard - 3.5/5
I only watched this because the sequel is coming out soon and there's still slim pickings with movies to see. It was much more enjoyable than I was expecting from the reviews. It's your typical action comedy but Reynolds and Jackson have great chemistry and the action sequences are decent.
A Quiet Place Part II - 4/5
Just a fantastic sequel.
I'll echo what you said about The Hitman's Body Guard.
Watching The English Patient, and I always knit while watching TV, realized how hard it would be to knit without thumbs.
What does that have to do with the movie? Does the movie have a Nazi SS officer in it?
If you see the movie you will understand.
That's a great movie....I watched Razor's Edge again the other night....another movie I really love.
I watched Paper Moon. Hadn't seen it since I was a kid. 10/10.
The Handmaiden, not to be confused with The Handmaid's Tale. Rather confusing as everyone was double crossing everyone else plus having to follow subtitles. But I liked the ending.
My mom had never seen Burn After Reading, so I watched that with her the other night. Was a little awkward when Clooney unveiled is homemade sex machine, but she thought it was pretty funny. It's up there with The Big Lebowski as far as comedies go. Any film suggestions in that same sort of vein?
Coen brothers comedies:
I'll have to check out the 3rd one. Seen the others. Thank you sir!
Oh Brother, clearly, but not Fargo. Never saw Hudsucker Proxy.
