Post the name of the latest movie you've seen and your rating out of 10.
Sunshine Boys (t0073766) - 7/10 - loved Burns, hated Matthau.
Don't Go in the Woods (1981) - 1/10. I usually don't notice whether acting is good or bad unless it's conspicuously awful, and boy was it ever.. oh well, one movie closer to completing the full video nasty list
“A-X-L” 6 I had liked it. But I wasn’t satisfied with ending. I had thought there was another possible ending since another mission of the military is defense and not only just offense. Use the kid and A-X-L to guard sumething like the President.
Nosferatu (1922) - 8/10. The setting was changed to a fictional town made up of German locations, but they look more ominous than the vague London of mostly interior shots that is shown in most of the other adaptations. "Schreck" means "Fright" in German, and lead actor Max Schreck lives up to his name.
Dracula (1931) - 7/10. Lugosi is the reason to watch this. Not much else of interest.
Drácula (1931) - 7/10. This is a Spanish-language version made with native speakers; they used the same sets as the above mentioned classic, only at night time. It's longer and a bit freer with regards to sexuality and violence, but also a bit long-winded. While Lugosi can't be replaced, I preferred this Renfield, because the actor Pablo Álvarez Rubio conveys his torment and ambivalence very well.
Dracula (1958) - 6/10. I was disappointed with Christopher Lee. He speaks fast and matter-of-factly and the clunky coat is limiting him. The star is clearly Peter Cushing as Van Helsing. The colors scream "posh", but not "scary".
Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979) - 10/10. Compared to this one, the Universal and Hammer versions appear even more bland, mundane, and action- or romance-oriented. In other words: not very scary. And not very interesting either. Herzog conveys so much more by "directing landscapes", as he calls it, as well as the choice of music, and sound in general. Isabelle Adjani is radiant - very beautiful, and also so fragile that she almost seems transparent. A lucent Lucy.
Klaus Kinski in the title role is at once more monstrous and human. Monstrous, because he is shut out from society and, like Max Schreck in the original Nosferatu, looks like straight out of a nightmare. But on the other hand, he longs for things that make one human, especially love and death. You almost feel sorry for him because he struggles to even express these feelings. This vampire is the most doomed character. Kinski is so good in his death scene.
Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) - 5/10. When you put maximum emphasis on every single point, what happens is that nothing matters anymore. It's a nice idea to deal more openly with sexuality but it's so open that any nuance gets lost. From the adaptations that I saw, this one was by far the most true to the story, but the movie is just too opulent and colorful to work as a horror movie. (and that infamously terrible, terrible accent... of course I'm talking about Anthony Hopkins, as the Dutch Van Helsing)
Killer Joe (2011) - 7/10
The Call (II) (2013) - 4/10
Changing Lanes (2002) - 7/10
Spider-Man (2002) - 7/10
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) - 7/10
* except "The Call" that i think is a pointless movie and so awful, they are in general they good/entertaining movies.
I guess I've never seen so many movies in a day like today.
I Spit on Your Grave (1978)- 6/10. Watching the original after the remake (not my usual order) made me appreciate the remake even more. There has only been 1 time in the past where I preferred the remake to the original, and the difference was only 2 points (7 vs 9). With 'I Spit on Your Grave', the remake was a straight 10 and the original was a 6. The girl in the 1978 one just didn't plan her killings out very good (or at all in some cases) and in real life half of them would've been fails (eg. not being armed when they show up and approaching them before grabbing a weapon, putting down her weapon where the men could reach it & walking away). And it doesn't make sense that she's all of a sudden a 'skilled' killer when before she was too uncoordinated to even hit someone with a paddle. And she should've acted more upset after being assaulted, she became a bit too cold and sociopathic a bit too fast, like flicking off a light switch with absolutely no transition/middle period...groovyvic out
Black Panther - 8/10
Season 2 of Fresh Off the Boat - 7/10; entire series 7/10 (would probably be 7.5)
Season 4 of Elementary - 8/10; entire series 8/10 - entire series would probably be 8.5 if this site allowed such a rating
To All the Boys I've Loved Before - 8/10 - sweetness and honesty raises it up past being a Disney/Freeform/Lifetime/Hallmark channel TV special
Amazing!! Honest, touching and well done.
I've watched times and times and still I'm still in love with this movie although it's a melancholy love story. What makes me love is its genuineness, represents very well the phases of a relationship, many will identify with this and some not, as usual. For me it is a masterpiece, Art at its best.
Flying Stewardess (Short Film1940), 2/10. Rifftrax commentary: Only first class passengers get to know.
Sour Grapes (2016) , 9/10.
