Quote from: Dr Rock on September 25, 2021, 09:23:59 AMThe poker bit is the worst bit. 'It's ok, I've discovered his really obvious tell'' Oh no, the tell was a bluff! No shit.The rest of the film is the other worst bit. How is it great, honestly?
Quote from: Rizla on September 25, 2021, 11:02:28 PMNoticed horror western Bone Tomahawk (2015) was on 'zon prime, gave it a whirl and was glad I did. Seemed to generate faint praise on here at the time, but I loved it. Scary and gory in just the right measure, superb script, lovely performances all round - Nite Owl's well good. Is old Kurt Russell > young Kurt Russell? I'm starting to think he might even be. 9/10
Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on September 25, 2021, 10:32:14 PMThe Hourglass Sanitorium (1973) - A man visits his dying father in a sanitorium and enters in to a dreamlike world where he stumbles from one unusual location to the next in what is a surreal, strange and odd journey. I found it intriguing for the first hour or so but in the second half found the confusion exhausting rather than captivating, and there were chunks where I had absolutely no idea what the meaning was supposed to be. Visually it's often unforgettable, and I enjoyed the bits I think I understood, but I can't say it's a film that worked for me as a whole. 5.4/10

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on September 25, 2021, 03:27:28 PMYoung Frankenstein (1974) - it takes too long for the creature to be up and about and messing about, while the ending is a bit bland for my liking.
Quote from: chveik on September 25, 2021, 11:31:52 PMthe book's great though, if you like kafka-type short stories
Quote from: Dusty Substance on September 26, 2021, 02:15:40 AMBoth of Brooks' big films of the 70s - Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein (released in the same year, which is remarkable) have disappointing endings which kind of let the rest of the films down.
Quote from: Dex Sawash on September 26, 2021, 04:27:35 PMBlazing Saddles has the best ending of any film ever.
Quote from: Dusty Substance on September 26, 2021, 08:38:28 PMI probably ought to rewatch BS (it's been a decade or so) but it sort of smacked of "we don't know how to end it so let's do something wacky and meta". A bit like when Spike Milligan would a sketch on Q by breaking the fourth wall and saying "What are we going to do now?".
QuoteAll television, all over the world, is suddenly interrupted by someone who looks like a cross between Mark Twain and Albert Einstein. Again and again he says cheerfully, "This is NOT Mind Control. Think about it." In the streets, panic ensues and Norman Jones finds himself racing out of control, through doorways through other dimensions, and finally falling through the universe and into the Jules Verne designed "WorldView Auditorium." Plummeting into an open seat, he finds himself in the middle of the talk show broadcast of one, Djony Dakota. Here he learns that his girlfriend, Faith Pate', has been kidnapped, and is being held for ransom and some good times. He also learns that, in his panic, in his haste, he left an interdimensional doorway open. Now, the fate of Faith, and the entire Universe, hangs on whether Norman can change the future, by closing the door to his past. And the clock is ticking. Do you understand: LAUGH NOW, THINK LATER? PSYCHIC INTOXICATION? BRAINWORMS? Did you know that you have "Laughter Glands" that periodically need to be squeezed? IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE TO YOU, IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE.
Quote from: frajer on September 27, 2021, 04:58:08 PMGemini Man (2019) which is fairly recent for a non-new film, but feels like something straight out of the early 2000s.
Quote from: zomgmouse on September 28, 2021, 08:26:21 AMThe Maid. Second film I've seen of Sebastián Silva (after Nasty Baby, which I really enjoyed). This is another super dark comedy filmed in an ultra realist style. A long-time maid of an upper middle class family starts lashing out.
Quote from: Enrico Palazzo on September 28, 2021, 08:39:34 AMHaven't seen The Maid but Tyrel and Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus are well worth checking out.
