Under the Skin (2014)

 

A science project of a film that doesn't try to explain to the audience what is even happening. It also fails to get under the skin so much as under the clothes. I have no idea how a film this bizarre and incomprehensible got an 80 some percent on Rotten Tomatoes, but I have to give it a 3/10. They tried to do something, but failed miserably. Bonus point off for having a following that compares anyone who doesn't like this film to a fan of Michael Bay movies.

The Revenant (2015)

First time I'd watched it since I went to see it when it was released. This movie is a masterpiece in terms of its technical filmmaking, with its camera work, use of natural lighting and overall brilliant visuals and sound design. Tom Hardy should've won the Best Supporting Actor for this movie... Leo shouldn't have won his oscar for this movie. He still does a good job, but his performance definitely wasn't oscar-worthy, whereas Tom Hardy just becomes his character. The overall slow pace of the movie does make it drag on a bit too much, especially with some scenes that really don't add anything to the overall story or characterisation of the movie. Still definitely worth checking out if you haven't already, I'd say it's an overall 8/10.

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018), I liked it, and not only because it had some Queen songs I have never heard before.

Cypher (2002)

 

A clever movie about corporate espionage. I really enjoyed it even if the acting was not really all that great at times. The plot was well-written enough to keep me more than interested in it, and the effects were actually fairly decent for a 2002 film. I also liked the choices of color palette to suit the film itself. 8/10.

Bringing Out the Dead (1999).

 

At first I was going to say this movie is bleh, but after a little while I was able to actually piece the story together. It took half the movie, of course to actually get f***ing going though... :dry: The ending though is pretty bad, and it makes little to no sense.  I will say though it has some great parts... But the movie as a whole is less than their sum. It could be a great movie, but it didn't really have any story at all until an hour in, and the pacing until that point was a snail's pace. Also, I found Marcus VERY annoying and I couldn't stand Tom... As a whole, it's not much better than okay. 6.5/10,

Spiderman: Far from home 8/10

Spoiler

I thought it was good, I have no clue why most people think it wasn't good. I like the idea how a avenge people, no alien, no super meta human can also be a worthy threat as a villain. I like that a lot. They're just plain o' simple smart people. Goes to show  we don't need a super epic powerful villain to make the movie good. and FINALLLY! It take place around Europe, not some boring new York or anywhere in the US. The only thing that set off the mood of the movie is the thing between Peter and MJ, it feel so forced.

In the tall grass 6/10
Based on a Steven King short story, this is actually a pretty decent little horror film. Worth a watch.

I have FINALLY watched the original Rambo film, First Blood. I'd been wanting to watch it for ages. The only Rambo movie I had ever seen before was Rambo 4 and because of the series' reputation, I went in expecting a mindless but still good action film. Color me surprised, because it is so much more than that. The action that was present was still intense, but the key word is tension and this film excelled in that. I loved seeing how John was going to outsmart everyone else. Above all of that though, was the ending scene which brought the entire theme full circle, the theme of a soldier who suffered and lost, but was given back nothing. One that mentally suffers every day, but nobody cares to see it. That is why I already love this film after just one viewing. The entire movie builds up that concept without us even knowing it and it lets loose by the end and it actually hit me hard. 

Honestly, I don't think I want to see any of the other Rambo films after watching this. The sequels are the main reason the series has the reputation that it does, action and violence and machoness all at the forefront. The first film is something so much deeper than that.

As Above, So Below - 9/10

Been out for a while and this was our third or fourth time of watching. Genuinely creepy "shock" movie for the month of Halloween and unlike some movies of the genre, the found footage technique works quite well in the claustrophobic catacombs under Paris. Much is left to the viewer's own imagination to work out what's going on and the ending open to much discussion and interpretation.

El Camino 

Image result for el camino a breaking bad movie poster

Always have been a huge fan of Breaking Bad, and it was awesome to see some of the characters returning as well as seeing what happened to Jesse after the series finale. I was sceptical about this movie at first, since I think the series ended pretty much perfectly, albeit with some loose threads. Probably my biggest complaint is that I thought the ending was pretty anticlimactic, but I'm still glad it tied up all loose ends that the TV show ended on. Overall, really liked this movie, would definitely suggest watching the TV show first before this movie as you'll definitely be lost without it. 

8/10

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016).

v1.bTsxMTQ2NjEyMjtqOzE4MjY3OzEyMDA7NDA1O

Bad ending that doesn't fit the movie aside (There are better ways to end it surely than that), It's a great film. Predictable to an extent, but a great film. I'm not going to go much into the plot of it. But spoiler free, the writing up until the very end was fantastic, and the performances of Mary Winstead and John Goodman are absolutely amazing here. This was perhaps even one of Goodman's best and that says A LOT with his supporting roles in films like Flight and the Big Lebowski. I was about to say this film is a 9.5/10 type of film, but the ending... was BAD. It straight-up didn't fit the movie... It's like somebody put the beginning of an alien abduction film into this movie that was more of a psychological horror film than that. Heck I have several better ending ideas myself, and I'm no screenwriter. As a film, it's still a 9/10 even with among the worst twist endings of all time (that was obviously put in to fit the Cloverfield canon).

Night of the Comet (1984).

MV5BOTQzZDVkMTctYTdlZi00MTc2LWJhMTEtM2Vm

I can sort of kind of see some of the cult appeal of this film, but nonetheless, it's a very, very cheesy film with a bit more than just that against it. I don't exactly like the characters, most of them just act in ways that I either find annoying, irrational, or not entirely befitting of who they are supposed to be in the context of the film. Also, there are just some really irrational actions here, and it's. But this movie has an odd sort of charm to it that is very hard to explain that prevents it from really being a mediocre or even bad movie. With all that considered, it's OK, particularly considering the $700K budget it was filmed with. 6.75/10. 

 

Mulholland Drive (2001)

MV5BYWEyYjhjZmItNDJjYy00YzZiLThmMzAtNzAy

This movie totally didn't make sense until the ending. Like you could tell that there were pieces that added up, but then you watch the ending and are able to fit them all together. The characters were made bland on purpose for the most part to sort of divert the audience's expectations, and in that way I must say it is very successful in doing that. At first I thought it would just be a bland film, instead of a fairly decent artistic piece. Also this film gets a plus for the LGBT representation back before that was popular. 9/10.
