I liked it.

He was making fun of himself. It has every trope and cliche imaginable (and the kicker being all the one's he's guilty of.)

Not a new movie, but wife and I got around to watching "The VVitch". I continue to be impressed with these A24 movies and their highly polished productions. Movie was absolutely gorgeous and unsettling, and the actors gave terrific performances; every single one of them. This movie is valuable for those who want a glimpse into the struggles of subsistence farming back in the day, or those who want to watch horror done right. A+.

The VVitch is fucking awesome! I loved how detailed and authentic looking it was (from the scenery to the dialogue ) it was so well made.

The director Robert Eggers is imo set to be the next big "it " director. His 2nd film is pretty out there and good too called The Lighthouse (starring Wilem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) its about two men stationed at a lighthouse and they descend into madness (oh and its shot in black & white too)

His upcoming film coming out next year is a viking epic called The Northman and it sounds utterly amazing. The cast is loaded too. Alexander Skarsgard plays the lead and apparently its beyond violent as hell. And the budget is supposed to be pretty sizable so that's good to hear. Can't wait.

Ive seen it. I remember liking it. I don't remember it too well anymore. At all, actually.

Decided we'd watch some more A24 horror this weekend, and watched Hereditary. Like many of their productions, the cinematography is stunning, and the acting is good (particularly for a horror film). Toni Collette is actually great in this, and I can see the Oscar arguments some have tried to make.

But after watching it, my first reaction when the credits rolled was "I didn't like that". I've been putting it through my mind blender, and I think now I have the impression of "it was okay, worth watching". If anything, the knowledge of the ending makes the movie elevated, because boy did they use a lot of tricks to make the movie more unnerving . A thumping base during many if the movie's innocuous scenes suggests something scary is coming, and often nothing ever materializes. It can seem boring at times, and the typical suburban setting doesn't pull the same weight that many other A24 movies benefit from.

If I can to rank this, Midsommar, and The Witch, I'd do it as follows:

The Witch > Midsommar >>> Hereditary

I seriously legitimately mean no offense, . . but I think you probably missed a lot. You mention that scenes were unnerving but nothing happened. The brilliance of the film [once you know to look for it] is how much of what is 'happening' happens in the shadows, or right on the screen without comment. The forces driving the narrative to the conclusion are very real and omnipresent.

Watch a video or two breaking down the nuances and clues and it might give you additional appreciation.

I love all three movies, and I put Hereditary right at the top of the heap.

Wow! Thanks for sharing. I just installed Iconic stream iptv using an article here and found a Romanian film "Acasa, my home". Based on a true story, the documentary is about a large family which lived in a perfect harmony with the mature and had to move to a big city. Not a typical evening entertainment movie and not something i would watch twice, but for sure worth the attention.

The Last Duel (2021)

I just caught it as a matinee to kill some time. I didn't bother to watch all of it. Damon and Affleck are miscast and both of them still have extremely punchable faces. Is it really a rashomon if the pov characters make themselves look terrible? The plot is choppy but not confusing.

Watched The Misfits on a flight. Slightly entertaining in parts, with two smoking hot ladies sharing the ensemble lead (Hermoine Chorfield and Jamie Chung), but in the end it's just a cut rate Ocean's Eleven.

I watched The Courier on Prime and found it to be good and grounded well in reality. It doesn’t make the most exciting movie but it was suspenseful and engaging.

Black Widow

"You both have killed so many people. Your ledgers must be dripping, just gushing red. I couldn't be more proud of you."

I wasn't expecting a dramedy. Scarlett Johansson looks good, but she doesn't look comfortable in the role. I haven't read comics since I was a kid, but this version of Black Widow is very different than the one I remember; she's not as cool or confident as the old comics version. Also, teh comics version was not so American. The girl from Midsommar is getting fat. Always good to see Ray Winstone.
