Just come back from the Queen biopic. Pretty excellent and glad I made the effort. Spot on casting and script kept up a good pace.
Nice clothes, too.Watched for the first time the Neil Simon scripted After The Fox starring Peter Sellers and directed by Vittorio De Sica in 1966. Whilst dated, it's still immensely enjoyable, especially Sellers and Victor Mature doing his best Dean Martin impression.
It got great reviews but everyone ive talked to said it was boring and dullJust saw the Netflix movie "The Highwaymen." It had been critically acclaimed. For those who don't know about it, it deals with Capt. Frank Hamer's trackdown and killing of Bonnie and Clyde. Although closer to the truth than the !967 classic "Bonnie and Clyde," I still found it inaccurate, bunk-filled and somewhat tedious. Since we don't have Netflix, I prevailed upon some kindly neighbors to let me watch it. I had to apologize to them afterwards.
I was considering watching that last night, but had a feeling it would be a dull outing. You've also got the classic Badlands in the Bonnie & Clyde mode. Ended up watching The Angel's Share, well worth watching, I nearly stopped when I realised it was by Ken Loach. I've lost interest in his oeuvre since he came out as a full-on communist revolutionary and supporter of BDS, with the exception of his own films. He did a good job managing to not let politics and social justice commentary overwhelm the film:It got great reviews but everyone ive talked to said it was boring and dull
Perhaps so. I simply find it annoying people elevate this slew of Marvel movies into some mythical folklore. If people treated it like Transformers then I wouldn't go into them expecting a higher meaning.Because otherwise the majority of the audience would be asking why there isn't one violent action sequence after another
Leading up to End Game there was a cinema here running all XX number of Marvel movies. Reckon it was 40 something of them. It was a 2 plus day marathon and I remember this radio DJ interviewing this girl at intervals to see how she was doing. I can't imagine spending that much time on my own redemption and salvation much less on Marvel comic book characters.I haven't seen all of the Marvel movies but, of the ones that I have seen, I have generally preferred the "smaller" movies that focus on one main character or on a few of the characters, rather than on the whole team.
I've found that those movies are generally a bit quieter and that, although there are fights, there is often more character development (unsurprising, really, since there are usually only a few characters to concentrate on) and fewer massive, hyperkinetic action scenes.
I really enjoyed Ant-Man for those reasons.
It's certainly not high culture, but I do think that it's a significant cinematic achievement.Perhaps so. I simply find it annoying people elevate this slew of Marvel movies into some mythical folklore.
I think that there are 22 movies to date, including Endgame. I haven't seen all of them, and have only seen a few in the cinema - I've caught most of them on Netflix (before Marvel/Disney broke off the relationship) or on DVD.Leading up to End Game there was a cinema here running all XX number of Marvel movies.

As someone who never lived through Ted Bundy what is the appeal of seeing a serial killer on screen?The new Ted Bundy film on Netflix is worth checking out. The actor nails Bundy's mannerisms, although not his chameleon shape shifter abilities.
Watched Midnight Run the De Niro outing from 1988. Haven't seen the film since then and whilst dated, it holds up well. Happy days the late 80s, even for those of who just had a glimpse and sweet taste.
The pathology of these pyscho killers is intriguing and in the case of Ted Bundy he was the first serial killer to have groupies. Now we know that a certain type of woman gets turned on by the sexual violence of their partners against other women. Hence they all have groupies sending them love letters in prison and on death row.As someone who never lived through Ted Bundy what is the appeal of seeing a serial killer on screen?
Overweight gay drama queen and militant Remainer.Rocketman the Elton John biopic - rather splendid and he did good job of laying his psyche out for movie length dissection and resolution. The musical elements are very tastefully and intelligently done.
