I saw the latest Terminator movie today. Great entertainment.

I had been planning to go see it until I heard what they did with the movie. 👎

I'll probably catch it when it comes on HBO/Showtime/Starz/EPIX.

@oralloy,
This afternoon:
Marriage Story (2019), 10/10.
Lead acting nominations are locks for Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson. Score from Randy Newman, (apparently we share a birthday), shouldn't be overlooked either.

Tonight:
Dolemite Is My Name (2019), 9/10. Great possibility Eddie Murphy will grab a lead acting nom as well.

I've been watching The Good Place on Netflix. It has its moments. Not an actual movie.

Just saw Motherless Brooklyn. Edward Norton, Alec Baldwin, Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Also directed by Norton; Story of a 1950’s Chicago “gumshoe” with Tourette’s, solving the mystery of the murder of his boss/guardian Willis.
Interesting, but too long for the material.

@snood,
I don't remember if any of us commented about 'Joker'. We went to see it a few weeks back, Wow.....it's very dark and disturbing.....but Joaquin Phoenix was mesmerizing.

If you don't deal well with dark, skip it...but if you can deal with dark don't miss it..........it will be awhile before I watch it again, but I'm glad we saw it.

@glitterbag,
Yeah some folks I know saw it and I don’t think from what they said about it that I’ll probably ever see it. I think Joaquin Phoenix is a great actor, but I only like a little bit of darkness and madness in my entertainment.

@glitterbag,
I thought it was fantastic, one of the best films I've seen for a long time. I'm getting it on DVD as soon as it comes out.

Having said that, on Saturday I took the kids to see Farmageddon. It was so good, one gag after another with no space in between.

Super great jazz score. I suspect the only nomination it might get is an adapted screenwriting nom. Willem Dafoe is great as usual. The chemistry between Ed Nortan and Gugu Mbatha-Raw is thoughtful and thankfully not forced.

@tsarstepan,
Yes! All excellent observations (that I wish I’d made😀). I too liked that Norton and Mbatha-Raw’s interactions showed affection and interest without pushing it. Not enough of that in modern films, IMO. And can’t believe I didn’t mention Dafoe. Maybe because he makes it look so seamless and natural I just take him for granted.

Did you notice the blatant similarities between Baldwin’s character and a certain wretched politician currently in the news?

Finally watched El Camino last night. It was just ok. Skinny Pete was the best part of the whole thing.

@snood,
I don't know why you were voted down for not liking the sound of a particular film. I've voted you back up btw, being the one taking a contrary position and all.

What I liked about Joker was that it took the character away from the far right who had embraced the character of the Joker as one of their own. I think Jared Leto's portrayal in Suicide Squad is a prime example.

This Joker is very different, he's pitiful, just one of the many victims of an uncaring system. The message is very Socialist in that it shows the consequences of inadequate funding for essential services not least mental health and housing.

When Bruce Wayne's father is shot, (not by the Joker,) I didn't feel outraged at all. I felt he'd had it coming. The Joker's targets are all rich and powerful or just plain nasty. The first person he kills is in self defence.

It reminded me of what the makers of Rick and Morty did when they heard that Rick Sanchez had become a far right icon.



But if that's too dark for you don't watch it, there's lots of classic films I've not bothered with for all sorts of reasons.

The thumbs feature ought to have been done away with a long time ago.

@izzythepush,
I‘d not heard that kind of take on it, Izzy. Heck, you made me want to see it!😄 I don’t even notice when I’m voted up or down. How can you tell, anyway?

Hey guys, I know this is supposed to be about movies we’ve already seen. But I want to make one exception to share about a movie I’m anticipating seeing.

It’s coming out sometime next year (early next year I hope) and it’s unoriginal title is The Invisible Man. I’ve seen other iterations of the same premise (1933 Claude Rains version, and 2000 version called Hollow Man), but from the trailer this one looks really good.

It’s starring Elizabeth Moss as a woman being stalked and terrified by her ex, who faked his death and is using invisibility to make her life hell. It looks like the kind of real scream-out-loud horror film that I really find delicious, and I can’t wait.

Yeah. Me too.

In the movie I liked where they went deeper than the "yo bro" part of him.

He was very generous, and quick on his feet thinking up that plan

A good friend, or as he would put it "You're my hero and ****"

@snood,
Elizabeth Moss is crazy talented, she can convey a million emotions with a tiny movement of a muscle. Another crazy talented actress is Jodie Comer, she plays Villanelle in the strange series 'Killing Eve'.
