Death ProofClose Encounters of the Third Kind - 10/10


Which version did you watch? I actually haven't seen this film in full and am curious as to whether the version currently in theaters is the strongest one overall.

Yep, it's the collector's edition version that adds most of the director's cut but (smartly) excises the mothership interior.
So yeah, it's the strongest cut overall.
And it's still a gorgeous, wonderfully optimistic movie.

The Breakfast Club 10/10

I must have seen this movie 100 times already and it never gets old. Genuine truth.

Just wrote something about Logan Lucky. Long review short, the genuine affection Steven Soderbergh feels for its characters gives it just enough substance, that, along with all the laughs and high-energy, white trash heist shenanigans, end up making it a pretty well-rounded experience at the cinema, and, in my opinion, THE sleeper surprise of the summer; welcome back, Mr. Soderbergh, welcome back indeed.

The Founder - 7/10. The story of how salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) grabbed the reigns from the McDonald's company's founders (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) and turned it into the fast food empire it is today. It's a solid drama that, if anything, excels at portraying its 1950's setting. While it uses (obvious) CGI for the first restaurants to utilize the signature golden arches, it works because it gives the restaurants a dreamlike quality, which effectively expresses Kroc's delusions of grandeur. With the exception of his exaggerated Midwestern accent, Keaton is very good, as are Lynch and Offerman, who excel at making the brothers' increasing frustration with Kroc palpable. All the same, the movie could have easily been called There Will Be Burgers. It uses the same "rise to the top" story arc found in movies like There Will Be Blood and Nightcrawler and does not deviate from the formula that much. However, those other movies make it pretty clear that their protagonists are not very good people. This movie does a better job at opening the debate as to whether the onus is on Kroc, the American way of doing business or a little of columns A and B.

John DumbearWell, that didn't last too long.


Never does. He's obsessed with posting here. And he's too much of a little pussy to explain why he keeps posting.

And I know for a fact he speaks English. Pretty well, too. He used to make lengthy posts about animated movies. He had made a top 50 animated movies or scenes thread years ago and then when another poster and an admin made their own top 50 list, Hazel had a meltdown like a jealous little bitch and tried to disrupt it by posting nude pictures of Disney animated children (Mowgli from the Jungle Book, as I recall)


He got permabanned but years later keeps posting obsessively. Usually in the last movie you watched and what song are you listening to threads.

If that isn't confirmation that X-Men Apocalypse actually sucked I don't know what is.

The only good thing was Olivia Munn's ass.


They should have just called it X-Men: Asspocalypse

The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean - 8/10 - John Huston directing from a script by John Milius and Paul Newman having fun with the title role. Even though it doesn't draw the same attention or mention, I think this should be right up there as required viewing of 70's era western type classics like Jeremiah Johnson and McCabe and Mrs. Miller. Other highlights would have to be the watch bear and Stacy Keach in a small but indelible role as Bad Bob the albino. Definitely worth checking out.

The Terror Within 5/10

Low budget cheese-fest from the 80s. At least it killed some time.

Pacific Rim - 7/10

This is one barebones story that does a lot of heavy lifting in its visuals to give it any sense of weight whatsoever. Okay, now there are monsters. Okay, now there are mecha to fight the monsters. Okay, now there needs to be two to pilot a mecha, cuz MESSAGE. Okay, it takes place mostly near Hong Kong, cuz CHYNUR*. Okay, badasses are setup to get gimped, cuz DRAMA. Okay, convenient videogame climax on the line, cuz RUNTIME. Okay, the monsters do what they do, cuz ANOTHER MESSAGE. That's a lot to let slide for something equating to Real Steel 2: Now With Lasers (Barely)**.


*are there any Chinese fanwhiners whining about the Japanses Mako Mori being a "yellow savior"? I just gotta know.

** honestly, lengthy pugilism was the only method these braniacs could devise? RoboCop with his car cannon could lay waste to those beasties.

Her left asscheek recruiting her right asscheek would've made for more compelling cinema.

"Will there be titty?"
"Sure."
*Boom* A check falls in my lap.
"What will these titties do?"
"Uh, jiggle?"
*Boom* Another check falls in my lap. I'm a producer now.
