Put your chat about the art of the film below
Unsurprising given my busy august, but just got 5 watched. Gonna be a low scoring year!
TMNT - fine, pretty fun, looked amazing
River’s Edge - not sure it was good but definitely entertained
The Truman Show - still a huge banger. What a tiny part to give Giamatti!
Art College 1994 - very Linklater, very good
The Blackening - fine, wanted more from it
Gonna do much better this month (because we’ve finally finished The Sopranos)
My #MovieMomentOfTheMonth was watching The Policeman with my 12 year old, Harry Styles obsessed niece and her parents (my sister and brother-in-law respectively) without any of us knowing quite how many fairly gratuitous sex scenes there are in it and really enjoying how mortified she was by it. Bad film!
It’s national cinema day tomorrow so celebrating with the most bang-average day of cinema experiences I possibly can: Blue Beetle with son in the afternoon and then The Equaliser 3 with the rest of the clan in the evening. I will probably need some weed.
oh yeah. Might squeeze in a Jurassic Park
The August Bests
The Father of My Children
Return to Seoul
Goodbye First Love
Things to Come
Going to watch Passages (2023) this evening at the cinema
Best: But I’m a Cheerleader*, Nightcrawler*, Paprika*, A Woman Under the Influence, Shinjuku Boys, Porco Rosso*, Land of Silence and Darkness
A mere 23 in August.
Best: The Eight Mountains, Barbie
Worst: Medusa Deluxe
Most Disappointing: Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One. Ultimately just too silly and nonsensical even within the world it has created for itself. More like a Fast & Furious film. Pretty sure I’ve already guessed the big plot twist at the end of the next movie.
Shameful that everyone is ignoring this
Someone in Talk To Me having the same name as my mum’s cat
MMotM: the De La Soul needledrop in TMNT
Please do not upset @shrewbie
The Eight Mountains - Really beautiful Italian epic that I wish I had seen on the big screen - think it is still playing on some cinemas if you’re lucky.
The Fabelmans- Zzzzz far too sickly sweet for my taste and went on forever. Nice cameo to end on, though.
A solo trip to the cinema before a night shift to watch entertaining comedy flick Theatre Camp in a pretty well-filled cinema screen on a Friday night and having a good old laugh and a chuckle along with other people
