The sequel to Happy Death Day, which as fun as it was I’m sure no one asked for, is seemingly just the same plot as the first one?


The House That Jack Built is really special. A lot more fun than I was expecting too. Just go see it!


I cannot wait to see Sorry to Bother You!
Only got around to seeing Shoplifters last night - glad to see it getting so much love in the poll, it was the best film I’ve seen in a long while

is Sorry To Bother You good? Seen people hyping it here but the trailer made it look terrible

Boo what???

watched mandy last night. reminded me a bit of OG suspiria mixed with drive or something. looked great and obvs cage going batshit is always fun but the first half really dragged a bit. I know that was intentional but man, it was sloooooow. overall I’d give it 7 severed heads out of 10.


I felt the opposite you know, preferred the first half to the second

also liked how the main villain is Ken Barlow’s son


I saw it at LFF but was half cut and no idea what I thought of it. It’s pretty surreal in a Being John Malkovich way but I definitely need to see it again.

ha, spent ages trying to work out who he looked like

It’s good but not as good as many of the others listed there.
Loses the run of itself a bit IMHO.

sorry, I was too lazy to put together an argument against lars von trier so just went with infantile noises instead. to each their own, I just can’t stand the guy or his superficial, dull nihilism and think he is a rubbish influence in cinema.

however, I saw you voted shoplifters film of november so we should probably just talk about how delightfully weird it was and how excellent the cast - especially shota - were throughout.

Anyone seen Disobedience? Might see it next week.

We had Shoplifters as the opening film at the festival I worked on in October so felt like a natural choice :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah, was ok, but not all that for me. The Rachels are both great though.

I really enjoyed it at LFF, reminded me of Repo Man

Roma - really, really, really great
