Nah, seeing things with a proper audience around you is great - just need to have a good cinema with good customers.


#4067

HD tv and bluray, good speakers, no twats (apart from me hurr hurr). Easy peasy, loads better.


#4068

Really? Haneke is a champ

Nothing I’ve read about his films, even in the most glowing reviews, tempts me at all. Just feels like the themes and areas that he explores are the exact things that I strive to avoid in the art I consume.


#4070

You should watch Cache at least


#4071

Oh will probably see killing of a sacred deer soon. I’ll put that above blade runner 2.


#4072

guess that set-up beats watching things on a laptop


#4073

:scream:

You should come over and watch some movies somewhen


#4074

Yeah as @Severed799 said at least give Cache a go, its incredibly well done. The first film I remember seeing where I was poring over materials online after


#4075

It’s great if not utterly pointlessly bleak. Definitely more Dogtooth than Lobster.


#4076

Woohoo \o/


#4077

That’s the only one where the summary of the story didn’t make me feel uncomfortable and annoyed, so maybe I will.


#4078

I’d be up for that, feels like it’s been awhile since we’ve done anything. get louis involved, it’ll be like old times (2014)

He is my favourite director, only duffer is Time of the Wolf and that is still good. He doesnt do films to shock, there is a real depth to the stories. Funny Games may be an exception but thats just a bit cheeky as opposed to nasty

Watched Victor/Victoria last night, one thing I’ll never understand is why Blake Edwards is not held in the same regard as Billy Wilder. I think in time people will see he was, at his best, a stone cold genius. As Ebert says of V/V and this is also true of many of his others (‘10’, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, etc…) it’s not just that the film is so funny but that it’s about likeable people.

Anyway that’s my annual I heart Blake Edwards spiel done for another year.


#4081

:smiley: it’s pretty nasty, man

Molly’s Game - Went to an Unlimited secret screening of this yesterday where you didn’t know what you were seeing until it started. Lol’d when it was this as my gf hates Chastain for some reason and has been moaning about the trailer for this for weeks now. It’s way too long and way too Sorkiny but sort of ok I guess? I think Chastain is superb but I hope her next role is a departure from this and the Miss Sloane style, cold, calculated character though. Lots of uncomfortably gratuitous cleavage shots in this also.


#4083

I dunnooo I think its him being a bit cheeky really!


#4084

it’s him going

‘like violence, do you america? well here’s some violence!! like that do you? and how about THIS!? THIS IS VIOLENT ISN’T IT! AREN’T WE ALL HAVING FUN EH? OOH CHILD MURDER! WHAT A GREAT TIME WE’RE ALL HAVING’

feel like it’s a necessary film but also quite a nasty one


#4085

I agree. No desire to ever sit through it a second time.
