Dolemite is My Name

Just finished watching Eddie Murphy's Rudy Ray Moore biopic Dolemite Is My Name.

What a great movie.

People are saying this is Eddie Murphy's best in years but I personally think this is my favorite Eddie Murphy movie overall.
If you have a chance to watch the original Dolemite do so, it's a lot of fun. It even has more boom mic's in shot than Plan 9 From Outer Space.

Revenge of The Ninja (1983)

I last watched the movie Revenge of The Ninja. 80's ninja movies really are an entertainment subculture onto themselves.

Kane Kosugi seems a lot younger in this movie than he does in Godzilla: Final Wars. ;)

CuriosityStream's Light on Earth, which is about various bioluminescent lifeforms. Very cool stuff, and of course visually amazing at times. It's easy to overlook just how common and widespread bioluminescence is, and all the varied ways organisms make use of it. Would definitely recommend this one.

The Lighthouse

I last watched the movie The Lighthouse. Great film. Bizarre and often hilarious in unforeseen confronting ways.

Just don't mention the scene where Robert Pattinson fantasizes about being with a mermaid. But still a really good movie!

Color Out of Space

Hey guys just watched the Nicolas Cage movie Color Out of Space.

What a great movie!

Very much like The Thing and From Beyond.

Nicolas Cage has been delivering a great comeback lately. This is another favorite of his for me alongside Mandy.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus
After hearing about the original Invader Zim show here and there (this forum might have been the first spot, actually) and learning of the new feature getting released on Netflix, I went through the show a couple of months ago and overall enjoyed it. Now, being prepared for Enter the Florpus, I was pleased to see that the film captured pretty much everything I liked about the show. It's almost dark, and maybe a tad macabre, but totally and unabashedly ludicrous about it. The production values are obviously ramped up, and many of the action scenes look particularly nice. It'd be neat if other cartoons from the 90s/00s could get a quality resurrection like this*.

Sahara
I heard about this film before it was first releasing, and then completely forgot about it until it popped up as a recommendation on Netflix. Story-wise, there's little of real note; it's a familiar adventure/romance/buddy film with a team of quippy underdogs rising to an occasion of greatness. There are a couple of comic moments that probably wouldn't fly in an American film. What's primarily of note about the film is 1: the smooth, angular aesthetic which suits the main characters, but also lends to a rather pretty film which distinguishes itself from rounder, more textured American productions, and 2: it's a cartoon about SNAKES. Seriously, how often do we get to see reptiles as endearing stars of a film? Overall it's a cute, entertaining film, mostly formulaic but with some slight inspired touches here and there.

Knives Out
Okay, now THAT was a cool movie! I went to a later night showing with a couple of friends, and we all loved it. I've heard it compared to classic Agatha Christie stories, but it's also got a Columbo story nestled inside! Writing and editing on this film were on-point all the way, with enough genre savviness to inform the audience, but not so much to distract from the film being its own story. I also greatly appreciated the sense of rather dry humor throughout the film, and the ultimate "message" the protagonist was left with (even if it was a bit quaint). This was a terrific watch, and I definitely plan to buy it and revisit it.

Foes (1977)

This is the creepiest movie about UFOs I have ever seen. It's a more sombre,creepy, lot less spectacular version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind with aliens that more alien than Spielberg's little heat men.

Swamp Thing

I watched the first 5 episodes, and am really enjoying this show. It's always entertaining finding out more of the secrets of the swamp as the show progresses. It's also super dark and IMO really does the character justice more than the 90's TV show. It's a damn shame it got cancelled after one season (hell, one episode), hopefully it'll get picked up on HBO Max or another app. I swear, WB has really made some boneheaded decisions. This sounds like one of those boneheaded moves from the early stages of the DCEU.

Mighty Joe Young (1998)

I last watched the 1998 version of Mighty Joe Young. In contrast to it's general reception and being largely forgotten I didn't think this movie was too bad. Rick Baker's gorilla suit is great, a lot of perspective shots are really well done and the heart of the movie feels like it's in the right place.

I like Joe Young in that he's a giant ape but instead of being colossal like Godzilla or Kong he's simply a larger version of a gorilla and possibly even conceivable. A bit like the shark in Jaws, much larger than a regular Great White but believable. Joe Young is much friendlier to people than Jaws though.

1917. Very, very exceptionally well done. The sequence that takes place in the village felt a little 'stereotypical war movie', but that would be my only complaint, and it isn't a big one. The camera work was next level, the sets were incredibly convincing, and the scale of it all, a small, personal story set amid gargantuan, sweeping events, was handled perfectly. Whether you like war movies or not, I would recommend this one.

The Truman Show

I last watched the 1998 Jim Carrey movie The Truman Show.

As a kid I had the idea that everyone and everything around me could be made up and they were in on creating a fake world around me and acting, pretending to be my parents. So it was interesting when much later a movie came out with that premise.

Of course today now I look at it as a movie that explores concepts of Anxiety, Fear and Mental Barriers. Rightfully the best movie of Jim Carrey.

If you have not seen Parasite, watch Parasite. Oh my god, what a phenomenal film. Some of the most intelligent writing I've seen in a film in ages. I have a feeling this will be taught in many film schools from here on out. What a masterclass in filmmaking.

I found Parasite to be really over-rated, definitely don't think it deserved Best Picture.

I would have gone for 1917....that was a flooring experience.

Sonic is a shockingly good movie. I don't usually enjoy kids movies very much. I think the Disney/Pixar style has sort of homogenized 'family' movies for the last 2 decades, and had everything feeling very similar. But Sonic, while still being a very wholesome family film, felt like such a departure from the way Disney and Pixar have seemed to phone it in for the last 5 years or so.

I wholeheartedly believe that Sonic could launch a wave of NON-Disney, NON-Pixar adaptations of Sega and Nintendo properties that completely break the grip that the Mouse House has on "hugely successful family fair that appeals strong to all demographics"...a movie that works really well for the youngers and families while ALSO still having that 'cool factor' for teens and adults is an important niche to carve out.

I've been binging My Hero Academia...and I have become completely addicted.

My Hero Academia has completely supplanted Dragon Ball as my favorite shonen-anime AND it has completely supplanted the Marvel Cinematic Universe as my favorite superhero franchise. The animation, the visuals, the WRITING, the characters....I have never developed such a deep love for a property SO quickly.
