Birds of Prey or The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. A fun little exercise in vivacious, brash style. The script suffered from some issues which hampered my enjoyment somewhat (the first half is structurally rather unsound and, while its cheesy dialogue did mesh with the comic-book tone there were instances of cringe-inducingly bad exposition).

In spite of this, I simply loved the performances, with Ewan Macgregor delivering a delightful take on Black Mask which channeled Gary Oldman in Leon and Margot Robbie absolutely nailing it as the titular character. I also really dug the filmmaking, with the gorgeous, thoughtful cinematography in particular as well as the tight, seamless editing making the film feel distinct, memorable and, most importantly, fun as a result. 7/10

Psycho (1960) - 8/10

"A new- and altogether different- screen excitement!!!"

Not my personal favorite out of Alfred Hitchcock's work but it's hard to dispute it's legacy.

Parasyte part 1(2014)


Pretty good movie, haven't seen part 2 yet, but I have to say, so far, I like it as much as I did the anime adaptation. Going to wait on seeing part 2 before giving a rating, however.
A shooting star, 'cross the sky
Naught but a flash, 'fore it's gone;
Its twinkling causes an inkling
That what was once forgotten
Shall soon be remembered.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The premise was kind of cliche but the actors had good chemistry together. Also, Jack Black acting like a stereotypical teenage girl was something I didn't know I needed.

The Man From Nowhere (2010). This film apparently inspired John Wick, and it really shows, albeit it's a lot more graphic and disturbing than John Wick. Good movie, would recommend if you like moody and dark Korean films.

Watched Full Metal Jacket again. Fantastic film. It shows you how deceiving the Cold War Era was. It looks like the period of peace and massive development on surface but many lives are lost in those meaningless proxy wars like in the Vietnam War. Really heartbreaking.

It also shows how war can shape your personality and grasp of reality. Those soldiers we aspire and proud of are trained to kill and see whoever comes in their way like an object. They lose their humanity and mercy in the process. It's saddening to see how humanity as a whole still continue such practices. As they say, war is hell.

Little Women - things fell short here and there like the characterisations felt too forced. Oh later I find out Watson is 29 and saoirse is 25 and I was pleasantly surprised.

Sonic the Hedgehog (6/10)

A fun, albeit shallow popcorn flick. Even if it's a video game movie, I thought the direction felt too safe. Some of the jokes made me chuckle, but many of them felt somewhat flat. One positive thing I can say for sure, though, is that the human characters were actually likable, which is quite rare for movies focused on non-human characters. Props to Jim Carrey for playing a really convincing Dr. Robotnik.

Stalker (1979)

I've been meaning to watch this (as well as read the book Roadside Picnic) for a long time since I love the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series.

In terms of entertainment, I almost fell asleep due to how long it is. It has so many shots clocking in at over a minute, and not much happens in its nearly 3 hour run-time.

Despite this, there's a very weird meditative and relaxing yet engaging and melancholic feel to it. Its characters are all flawed and searching for some last remnants of hope in the Zone, and the Zone itself feels mysterious and haunting in its vastness and emptiness. Also the acting is amazing and the dialogue is seemingly pointless yet realistic and revealing.

A very unique film that not everyone will enjoy, but should still be seen at least once.

Parasite

I thought it was good, but not amazing. I personally feel that it's a bit over-hyped. I certainly saw and understood at least most of the symbolism and subliminal messages, but they weren't enough to blow my mind which is why I didn't think the movie wow'd me.

Sonic the Hedgehog.

Surprisingly good. Robotnik stole the show, as I expected he would, and his dive into insanity throughout the course of the movie was a delight to watch. Sonic's portrayal as a lonely kid was interesting. I still don't know if it was the best choice they could have made, but it's incorporated well enough that it doesn't become too jarring. I don't know if I'd watch it again, i'd sooner watch the Sonic OVA, but at the very least, I'm glad it wasn't shit.

I saw Superman Red Son. I enjoyed it, but it felt a bit short, some things were not so detailed. The world rapidly changes but the focus is always on characters like Superman so you don't see much of it.

Love
Directed by Gaspar Noé

I really suck at explaining/writing stuff but here we go.

It's pretty much about a man living in regret having flashbacks.
Though most of it was predictable, the movie still took me on a ride.
The film shows love in all forms of intimacy, physical, mental, spiritual and emotional.
Theres alot of raw sex but to be honest, I didnt feel sexually aroused to the slightest. To me those scenes felt like it belonged to them, as in how should I say it?..... those sexual moments belonged to them (compared to actual porn, they make you feel a part of the scene) so that's what I'm trying to say/compare it to.
My main focus was the MC's relationship with Electra because he was in regret in the present having flashbacks which all made me wonder, what the hell happened to Electra? because Electra was nowhere to be found in the present with him(MC).

*(Electra is the MCs ex girlfriend that he had a love trip with)

I cried a bit, no lie. Idk what else to say, I suck at this.

Overall it was a 7/10 for me.

I enjoyed it a lot. Action-packed from beginning to end. And of course, the star-studded cast certainly got and kept my attention. Fujitora vs. Zoro, add in a bit of Dracule Mihawk? Hell yes!

Fanny and Alexander

I was admittedly dreading watching this due to the five hour runtime but this really flew by, hot damn. On top of that, it's one of the best films I've ever seen; the acting is top notch, the cinematography is tremendously beautiful and the narrative does a delicate balancing act with a variety of tones and themes it delivers on in a way that feels effortless. Worth all the accolades it's received and Bergman's masterpiece. 10/10

The Invisible Man (7/10)

Great main acting from the female lead and terrific camerawork, but I was rather let down by the second half. The film was much better and scarier when the titular Invisible Man remained unseen. I do love the social message of the film, especially since it doesn't feel ham-fisted.

Last movie I watched was the Sonic movie. I honestly wasn't expecting it to be really good or complete shit so I can't really say I was surprised when I saw it. Much like Detective Pikachu, I thought it was good enough for what it was and overall a fun watch.

Querelle. Unfocused and poorly acted for the most part, but still a visually stunning, poetic and layered film about self-discovery. 7,5/10

Just watched The Crow. It's one of those movies I would probably fell in love when I was a kid and would be a die hard fan. It's edgy and gothic as hell but with a style. It has its own charm. I really like it. I'll totally check out the original source material, the comics.

Rest in peace Brandon Lee. Amazing last performance m8.

Good ol SAW(2004)

You're not gonna believe this but this is my first time watching this movie. This franchise was one of my phobias when I was a kid. I vividly remember the posters of the movies in theatres. Especially the poster of the second movie stuck in my brain. Two ugly dirty fucking fingers... Now I think its a brilliant poster but back in the day it gave me the creeps.

After the childhood, even though I wasn't scared of the movies anymore, I didn't wanna watch them anymore because when I saw there were 5 or 6 released movies, I imagined SAW as a cheap ass cash grab franchise. So, I never touched them until today.

As I said, my expectations were pretty low. I was expecting to see some gore and scream and that's it. However, this movie is much more than that man. I'm really surprised. Instead of cheap gore, this film is actually a nice crime-thriller. There is a nice mystery in it and the pacing is pretty solid. Movie manages to keep you on the edge of your seat all the time. The acting is also surprisingly acceptable and convincing. I like the movie overall.

After watching the movie, I've learned that the movie was made by two chill and broke Aussie guys lol with a low budget. My mind was blown and my respect for this movie is just skyrocketed. I just love the come across with these humble and genuine stories. Just two amateur guys with enthusiasm and energy try an ambitious project, then somehow climb to the top lol. Here's a small interview from these guys, if you are interested.

Romeo + Juliet, I really don’t know why I watch it. It’s supposed to be innovative, whacky and over-the-top, which it kinda is. But seriously I feel like it’s not that all impressive. I mean, if you watch it you’ll know it’s very dull, not-so-special and very out of place a lot of the times. Please, humans from Letterboxd, stop calling us ‘disgusting elitists’ for not liking this movie.

2.5/10

Although the latest movie I’ve actually watched was a rewatch of Dr. Strangelove. Initially I gave it a 7, which is already enough to be in my favorites, but as for yesterday’s viewing, I gave it a 9. Probably the funniest satire ever, disturbingly so. With this watch, I also realized my taste has drastically changed ever since I was a high school student. I used to think anyone who dislikes A Clockwork Orange or The Man Who Sleeps was stupid, but now not quite (of course in fact I was the stupid cuck). I think those stuffs suit the stupid teenage me more.

Police Story by none other than Jackie fucking Chan. This man is the best action movie actor ever lived. The stuns he made in this film just blew my mind. Bravest man alive, he puts the whole Hollywood to shame with his brilliance. There are no good action movies like this anymore.

My Hero Academia The Movie 2: Heroes Rising (6/10)

A decent standalone MHA film with tons of flashy action and gorgeous animation, though it primarily works on fanservice. Mainly for fans of the series. The new villains aren't all that interesting except for the dog guy. The middle part was the strongest; the final battle felt like a cheesier version of All Might vs. All for One. Gotta say, though, the dub was surprisingly great.

Come and See. One of the best films I've seen, period. A peerless lead performance and a perfect synthesis of formal elements make it the most harrowing depiction of war I've personally watched. 10/10.

The Sonic Movie: I was thinking to myself, "Wow, is Agent Stone and Dr. Robotnik a ship or something?" Then I was like, "Nah, this is abusive". And then I looked up some things after the movie and the actor for Agent Stone was like, "Heheheh yeah" and is retweeting some pretty gay stuff. Now I'm just like, "Oh shiz, maybe it was supposed to be a one-sided love". And now I just want to see it again. It was an interesting aspect to put on the character. I was thinking he'd be a pretty bland character without it. He reminds me of Matsuka from Toward the Terra-- coffee and everything. Anyway, the movie wasn't terrible, but there were so many things that made one think, "Err, well what about this though...?" There was a lot of suspension of belief expected of the audience-- honestly, the writing just felt poor at some times. There was a lot of focus placed on just trying to fit in one-liners. Sonic was pretty damn annoying. Honestly, they didn't make Sonic a very likeable character, but at least he was relatable in a way. Characters were often overly accepting of their situations, often no repercussions for some rather questionable things.

Onward: I had no idea what to expect with this movie. I hadn't really read a synopsis or anything. At the beginning of the film, my friends and I figured it was a dad movie, but by the end we realized it was a brother movie all along. That was really sweet. It was really nice to see a movie tackle a brother film with a modern twist. We see the buddy film here and there, but seeing this definitely made me take a step back for my own brother. Animation was fine, everything came together relatively well. There were actually quite a few parting messages the film left the audience with. Nothing preachy, but things to think about. Voice acting had its highs and lows, but nice overall. Something about the film didn't quite make it pop visually-- I guess there was a dullness to the colors and perhaps the character designs were a bit generic. Still, it's not a poor film. A shame not many will be seeing it due to the virus.

Enjoy your anime!

I watched two movies today because I'm a lazy bastard who sheltered himself in his house.

Evil Dead 2(1987) and Frailty(2001).

Evil Dead 2 was totally ridiculous and wacky. I thought I'd see a good scary movie but on the contrary, it was a solid satire to horror genre. If you like over the top stuff, you gotta check it out.

Frailty was a Se7en-like religious serial killer movie. However, biggest difference between them is the style. Se7en keeps you on the edge with its dark and depressive visuals and storytelling, it feels like a thriller. On the other hand, Frailty feels like a drama with the pacing and storytelling. You don't feel the intensity but it manages to keep you curious. If you like this kind of stuff, you can check it out.
