Thought I'd post this here until I hear we're doing it somewhere else....

Post the name of the latest movie you've seen and your rating out of 10.

Colette - 8/10, although I just saw it last night and I usually like to wait to rate a film so I get time to sit with it and some distance develops; this could go up or down a bit. I didn't want to wait to recommend it, though.

Free Solo (2018), 9/10.  There's a small movement of Youtube film critics that are making the point that this documentary should get a cinematography Oscar nod.  I wholeheartedly concur.

  • Murder Party (2007)- 9/10. Lots of fun. The guy who was promising the grant money was a hoorrrible actor, but because of the campy bad-good movie style of the film it didn't detract from my viewing experience.
  • Terrifier (2017)- 9/10. This one hit me hard for some personal reasons that I can't discuss due to their spoiler-ing nature.
  • Motel Hell (1980)- 8/10. Rewatch. No change in opinion from my first viewing. Also lots of fun.

A good weekend:

Venom (2018)

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool (2017)

The Big Heat (1953)


All of them get a 8/10, in the case of Venom it was unexpected.

Tag - 8/10 - I have no idea how Jeremy Renner was able to shoot this movie with two broken arms in casts.

Cadillac Records - 7/10 - Felt like something was missing. Like this was just a one-sided telling of the story.

/Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018), 9/10.  Quite possible Oscar nominations for Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, and the original screenplay.

Niagara (1953) - 7/10. It's been purely accidental, but it has been three straight weekends watching 1953 films.

The Price of Everything (2018), 9/10.  Documentary by the director of one of my all time favorite documentaries, My Architect (Documentary).  Fifteen years waiting for the second theatrically released documentary?  Fifteen years too long.

Tonight:
Freddie Steps Out (1946), 2/10.  It's amazing what they thought was allegedly entertaining for teenagers back in 1946.  As usual:  Rifftrax commentary by Bridget Nelson and Mary Jo Pehl? 10/10.

Museo (2018) - 8/10, a very interesting Mexican film starring Gael García, unlucky to be released the same year as ROMA, this would have been our submission to the Oscars any other year and it got prizes in Berlin. It is about a robbery in our main History museum some decades ago, and the scenes showing this are great, and also a great example of cinematography and sound mixing, showing how this craft can be appreciated in not noisy films.

Strangers on a Train - 9/10 - Criss cross!

Has anyone read the book? I'm wondering if Bruno set up the meeting between him and Guy or if it was just a coincidence...?

Suicide Kings (re-watch) - 8/10 - Some cheesy parts but still overall enjoyable. Walken is excellent as always and Dennis Leary ad-libbing nearly his entire part was awesome and impressive. I wonder what happened to Sean Patrick Flannery. It seemed like he could have been a big star after Young Indy.

/The Haunting of Hill House (TV Series 2018– ), 9/10.  I don't understand how there can be more than one season.  The hokie ending was a pretty big stumble (how it was wrapped up and handled) kept it from getting a 10/10.
