Suspiria: Those colour choices! This Goblin sountrack! Every scene holds the interest in some thread and minute detail. The kills are gruesome and sadistic. I imagine if the film was silent and had no dialogue it would shine just the same through the strong audiovisual. And those gorgeous walls! I would ignore the talking heads and only marvel at the wallpaper. A rare thing indeed.

Barton Fink: To talk about it is to spoil it. Can't say I can recognize where it all twists off. Maybe when the camera goes down the drain? Earlier? The studio boss who reveres artists and kisses the feet (shoe) he respects is something that seems delightful surreal. I am horrified to say that the decorative wall covering was subpar. Every time it peeled of the wall with a saturated sound I groaned in disgust! "Where is my honey?!!"

The Sparks Brothers

Documentary about the band Sparks directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz).

I'm already a long-time Sparks fan, so the film wasn't exactly revelatory for me, but there were still enough details and such included that I came away from it having learned something new about their music and who they are as people. The fact that the Mael brothers were there in the movie as a part of it made it hugely different from other band documentaries. Because Sparks still exists, and have managed to continue to make engaging music all this time later, it's very different from the usual look back at the glory days of a rock band. It's presented as an ongoing tale of their artistic journey.

If you don't know Sparks at all, I think it's a fantastic introduction to them. If you heard of them and were never sure if you actually would like them, this might help push you to check out one or more period of their work. If you are a fan, it's a fun time with lots of laughs and great editing.

Recommended. Which is a bit odd because I would never try to suggest Sparks to someone as a band. There are certain things in life that are hard to take on recommendation and really only work if you stumble upon them yourself. Sparks is, in every possible way, one of those things.

Raining In The Mountain
A classic from King Hu that delves more into drama and spiritual/religion with a dash of exciting action thrown in. Same cast as Legend of The Mountain and features some beautiful scenery of South Korea. Some witty dialogue and love how a lot of the conflict gets resolved by public meetings with the monks.

Just saw F9. Man, this is one franchise that keeps upping the ante with every installment. But they have officially done the impossible:

A Quiet Place II

A sequel with a "more of the same" approach to the somewhat unusual thriller about a family of survivors of an extraterrestrial invasion of blind monsters that locate people to tear apart by noise. The main changes are a neighbour (Cillian Murphy) replacing the dead dad as a man of action, an increased firearms presence, a partial change of scene (still in the forested hills of New York state, but on the sea, a few miles away from the farm and town of the original) and a significant number of other survivors.

It loses some of the atmosphere and doesn't add much, except toning down some of the silly elements; both the trend of increased confidence and success at killing the aliens and the ending scene suggest further sequels where humanity reorganizes and fights back.

After Midnight

Trite relationship drama with a random monster thrown in. I hated just about everything about this. And the finale... have you even been to a karaoke where someone who's neither a good singer or an entertaining failure gets on the machine, and everyone suffers through and claps politely after? If not, enjoy sitting through it in real time.

My wife and I have watched all of them. Good? Ha. Entertaining? Absolutely. I haven't clicked on your spoiler - going to see it at Alamo tomorrow, but my guess is at some point they'll be in space.

Remember the big stunt in the first? They jumped the car onto a boat. How far they've come.

Ill always be partial to the 26 mile long runway in six.

Haven't seen F9 yet, but in my book it's gonna' be pretty hard to top The Rock jumping a stolen ambulance off an overpass and crashing it into a Predator drone in mid-air for sheer audacity. That right there may just be the single most ridiculous thing ever committed to film.

Hope you brought some extra lotion, man.

I got a ticket to see Censor tomorrow since it seemed like it might be a fun horror flick. Brits might enjoy its conceit of a video-nasty censor discovering more than she bargains for while cutting up horror films. A premise kind of akin to that Berberian Sound Studio flick that I only really know from BIL's descriptions. At 86 minutes I certainly hope I won't be bored...

Then again I saw Goodbye Dragon Inn a few weeks ago and at 82 minutes it was one of the most boring, plodding, dull, and unlikable movies I have ever seen.

Oh nice, I saw RLM's Censor review in my recs and wondered what was up. Berberian seems even more envelopingly oneiric and stylish in hindsight, I'll probably watch 'em both. Compact runtimes rock ;3

In fact I threw away what remaining KY I had when I cleaned out my condo in Illinois. I am no longer a Chicagoan, and I'm fine w/ that. I know Lori is gonna come in and jack up property taxes next year. I'm stretched thin as it is. I may be the only person that didn't make out like a bandit in selling their place but it is a LOT less stress in my life.

No Sudden Move was a pretty decent thriller.

Sisters With Transistors (2020)

Documentary about influential women in electronic music. It was mostly cut together from existing documentary footage from other things over the years, but done a good way that tells a story very effectively. It's written by Laurie Anderson, who is probably best know as the wife of the late Lou Reed (Velvet Underground), but she's not really in it as far as I can see, and I wouldn't have known if her name wasn't attached to it.

Featured are quite a few lesser knowns, but also Laurie Spiegel, Suzanne Ciani, and the ineffable Delia Derbyshire (who composed and performed the Dr. Who themesong).

I 100% recommend it. Even if you have seen all the footage before, because if you have then you love this kind of stuff and you'll get a kick out the way this film presents it, and the new stuff included.

The Forever Purge just might be the best of the Purge movies. I don’t mind if this truly is the grand finale of the franchise, this is a good way to go out. We follow a Mexican couple trying to survive America long after the Purge holiday as over, as a group of terrorists calling themselves the Ever After Purgers or Purge Purification continue killing. Eventually, we get to the Mexican border and we are treated to an awesome Rambo: Last Blood-like finale. One of the terrorists even lets out a Wilhelm Scream during the final battle!

The Many Saints of Newark trailer just dropped.

The actor playing young Tony is kinda freaky.

Cheers, I keep forgetting that one exists. :o

That Gandolfini kid clearly ain't got the makings of a *checks comments* mudda fucka!

Shot of him lazing about with his LPs recalls Tony's crucial indolence well. Trailer looks kinda OTT, but then every one I've ever seen of the show did, too. Given what Chase has said about its genesis (unrelated story about Newark circa his youth) I'm hoping it's not as focused on the thoroughly well-documented Tony as it suggests - even if that Disney Wars subtitle (aieee!) suggests cold studio feet (was originally just called "Newark," IIRC).

Dickie Moltisanti is a fine anchor point for a prequel, a cod-legendary figure with a dubious aspect. Guessing the end of the trailer with Liotta explains a coupla three things about them TV trays.

Honestly if you'd said he did a Howie Scream I'd have my tickets booked already. It is criminal that the Howie continues to languish in stature behind the Wilhelm!

I like the oedipal touch that the actress playing young Livia is the spitting image of Carmella.

Did Gran Torino turn out any good?

Edit: Oh shit, that really is his kid! No need to call Maury Povich on this one.

Haha, yeah, they actually went ahead with his (AFAIK) totally green kid... I don't know, it doesn't inspire confidence on paper, but Chase and company were always crack shots.

Been forever, but I remember liking Gran Torino back at release. Eastwood jokingly told someone (Jay Leno IIRC?) that a new Dirty Harry would have him running around with a walker and doing lots of fishing. GT reflects that, no crazy OLDMANFORCE antics. Walt does fix the fuck out of a broken washing machine at one point. A compellingly soiled protagonist in the ballpark of Harry and Will Munny.

Ah, I've wondered myself. Completely slipped past me, but then I'm waiting on Saul to rack up a few more seasons before I marathon the bastard. From very peripheral glances, it doesn't seem to have left a bad impression.

To be honest, it’s been a while since I heard the Howie Scream… One of my favorite uses of the scream was in the prologue to Popful Mail for the Sega CD.
