    haha. Thanks, @ashlesha, but it's not your fault. I checked it out a week ago and was bored, and I thought I'd watch it, but I just didn't know what I was getting into lol

    I haven't watched Room yet. Maybe I'll give that one a try.

    I saw Girl in the Spider's Web last night. The plot points were poorly connected. For example, the screenwriter (s) needed to get the American NSA agent from a heavily guarded holding cell into the parking lot ready to help Lisbeth get a child back into the USA. In order to connect the plot points they made Lisbeth's character into something holy unreal. This kept happening throughout the movie. It was like the solution to every major plot dilemma was just to make the character so extraordinary and hope that the viewer suspends disbelief. Total amateur hour. It reminded me of a television series type plot that got written on the fly, so rinse-repeat the objective-obstacle-solution formula for two hours.

    I bet if I invested a few years in my free time I could write a sick fuckin movie. Putting together the only structurally/conceptually/logically flawless breakdown for each enneagram type, wing and stack is harder than writing a structurally/conceptually/logically flawless plot because the type list is reality-based. Granted the typelist deals with and categorizes real people and their real character types, but I could always just organize the plot using real events and character types. Just because a movie is fiction does not mean that the plot can be structurally/conceptually/logically flawed.

    Keep in mind that a great role requires the lead actor to suffer psychologically for the benefit of the director's vision. This usually involves some act of on-screen humiliation or immersion into darkness that scars the actor/actress internally to play (it's usually the recipe for a cinematic masterpiece)....For some great examples, see Susan George in Straw Dogs; John Wayne in the Searchers; Maria Schneider in Bertolucci's masterpiece Last Tango in Paris; Jennifer Lawrence in Red Sparrow. A woman is not a woman until she is willing to fight off female rivals even to the death for the man she loves.

    Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado

    Didn't think it was as good as the first one, but it seemed to be leading up to the next one, which will hopefully? be better.

    Anyone seen The Nutcracker or The Grinch yet? Heard The Nutcracker wasn't very good...I actually really wanted to see it (lol) but now I'm not so sure..maybe I'll just wait until it's out on DVD.

    The Mule comes out today where I’m at. Think I’ll probably try to see this one in theaters. Looks good.

    Aquaman- 5.5/10

    The writing/plot was cliche garbage. The effects were superb though and the acting/cast was good.

    Stalker (1979)

    I watched it for the 1st time in ~18 yo and was impressed much.
    The best part of the movie is the atmosphere. The plot is secondary. You get what wanted to be said intuitively.
    The main actor mb EII, what could be one of reasons to impress me.

    Recommend to watch as interesting and original movie. It was made some before USSR was betrayed and destroyed. In the movie you may get the associations of the crush, of the time which destroys and transforms anything. That spiritual is the only important as all material is temporal. The dark genre have appeared in USSR years later, when Gorbachev have started to ruin the country. But Stalker was not just dark, it was about higher senses.

    Default Death in Venice

    Death in Venice (1971) An Italian-French film based on a novel by Thomas Mann

    I only knew that the soundtrack is from Mahler's 5:th symphony Adagietto movement, and that made me expect a tragedy, because of the music. And also the name of the film of course.

    The film takes place in early 20:th century. A middle-aged German artist travels to Lido in Venice to get some rest. There he sees a beautiful young boy.

    I think the film is great. Beautiful people, costumes, well recreated pre WWI environment and atmosphere.

    The whole film is beautiful and extremely tragic, also the music. I recommend it. Best film I've seen in a really long time.

    I watched Downsizing. Options were limited at the time and I thought the previews looked dumb. It turned out not to be as bad as I thought it was going to be. I’d give it maybe a 2.5/5

    4/5 - Good emotional movie that brings the spirit of the original Rocky movies under a new character. Unlike most sequels, it is not a step backward, but continues the momentum built by the first movie.

    If someone took my baby I’d be scouring the whole woods until I found them, and I’d have no mercy. What are they even doing? A whole lot of nothing.
     



    Isolation is not good for these people. Bad things are going to happen.


    I like the whole historical atmosphere. Directing is good.


    These people make me feel like a bum. I need to give my kids chores.


    They are freaking me out with their religiosity. Almost as much as the witch.


    I guess they need their religion as bleak as their environment is to keep them from killing themselves from depression.


    I’m really glad I wasn’t born back then. Quit going on about the devil, praying and whining and go find the witch. This is so frustrating to watch. Bunch of brainwashed creeps. I’m not even scared at all. I’m annoyed. Really annoyed. Can’t believe they’d turn on their own kids like this.


    Honestly, I don’t know what these people are saying half the time. And I have the volume up to 100.


    This is so disturbing I can’t even.


    So everybody is dead. You can blame your own paranoia for that.


    So now the girl is breaking and hearing voices. She’s lost her mind. No surprise considering. There is probably something in the food they have been eating. Add religion to that and you have a dangerous combo.


    Well now you can see how witches are made. They made the girl crack. Nice going.




    It creeped me out, but not in the way I expected it to. Which actually made it more disturbing to me.

    Mortal Engines (2018)
    7 / 10

    It's made for kids, so the story is primitive and has stupid places.
    But... The movie has a charm.
    By the effects it reminds me a "Super Mario Bros" (1993). It's also stupid, but after watching you keep the pleasant impressions.
    Good art work in the both cases.

    3.5/5

    Overall, a good movie plagued by a mediocre story line with some plot holes and a cliffhanger ending, but the visionary concept and spectacular visuals more than makes up for it. It could of been a near flawless movie if they took the time and effort to write a better script based off of the anime. However, I definitely felt like I got my money's worth watching it on IMAX 3D though as it made great use of it unlike other movies.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    I liked it. Subjectively 3/5. It managed to keep my attention. Have a hard time nowadays watching movies all the way through.

    Creed 2. Watched the first 1/3 of it and slowly lost interest.

    I’ve watched a bunch of movies lately, but I can’t remember all that I’ve watched. Guess they weren’t all that memorable.

    About a month ago I saw the movie 'Greta.'

    I liked it, mainstream critics didn't like it very much but I thought it was good and it got better and better as time went on. The main protagonist was over-the-top naive and sweet in a way that wasn't very believable but it somehow went well with the movie's campy charm. There were many logical inconsistencies/'wtf that's not how it would happen in real life LOL' moments that would irritate even a Te polr at times- but that wasn't really the point anyway. The point was how psycho and evil and crazy Greta was, which the actress portrayed very nicely. It was criticized for showing a negative portrayal of people who are lonely and isolated (as that was one of Greta's primary motivations for her crimes) but the movie clearly wasn't trying to say that every sad and lonely person would do what Greta does lol. I didn't understand the SJW ness of that point, but whatever. The movie was much more campy than pretentious though- and that's the main reason I enjoyed it, whereas uppity humorless critics probably want something more pretentious. Fuck you, you sourpusses- learn to laugh at Greta dodging bullets by ballet dancing and trolling private investigators who are so dumb they deserve to die. I give it a B+.

    Watched The Nun. Wasn’t really scared at the time, but at night the creepy nun face started haunting me and I kept getting creeped out thinking I felt something behind me. Now I’m really creeped out by nuns. It wasn’t too bad of a movie.

    Surprisingly I kind of liked Aquaman.

    Venom was funny in places, but the beginning was slow. Didn’t find it all that great. Kind of boring.

    I loved (especially the beginning of) A Star is Born. Probably the best movie I’ve seen in a while.

    This one was kind of weird, but I liked the directing. Something ‘crisp’ about it? But yeah it really wasnt my kind of thing, pretty decent though.

    The Nutcracker and the Four Realms- A pretty movie with no sustenance. The story theme seems a bit overdone and unsurprising.

    The Girl in the Spider’s Web- I liked it.

    Crazy Rich Asians- I loved it

    Slender Man- Not scary. But actresses were good.

    Austenland- Cute...Reminds me of good old fashioned 90’s movies

    Haha. I mean the list is mostly horror/thriller/mystery but there are a few random favorites thrown in

    Bundy was a little rat....I could have twisted his head off and used it for a bowling ball.

    Zac Efron was not a good Bundy and Bundy a disappointing film...The timeline was weird. It did not go into the guts of Bundy's murder spree. Efron is only a mediocre actor and poor choice. He lacks Bundy's glibness and dark undertone. Even somebody like Joaquim Pheonix would have made a better choice. My IEI-Ni 4w5 sx/sp told me later that Zac Efron produced the movie.

    A lot of serial killers are pussies.. That's why they target the weak in backhanded ways. Who else would have such an uncontrollable need to feel Like god? Mentally and usually physically weak people

    The most recent Hellboy movie--A weak plot filled with more gore and repulsiveness than anything else I've ever seen in my life. I wasn't expecting much, and not much is exactly what I got.

    The most recent Pet Semetary--Grim, creepy, slow-paced, mildly interesting, not scary (which is good, because I'm not sure I enjoy being scared).

    The most recent Dumbo--This one I really liked. A solid enough story with solid enough characters. And visually very pleasing; somewhat emotionally stimulating, as well (I teared up at a number of points while watching it).

    I finally saw Avengers: Infinity War. Man, the studio isn't even trying any more. It's just, put those familiar characters up on the screen with lots of special effects, turn the crank, and watch the money roll in.

    It's like Star Wars, the Umpteenth Episode. Or Dune, Book 1,478.

    Three hours of watching paint dry.

    Man, I sometimes feel like the only person who thinks those superhero movies are terrible — people give me odd looks when I say that sort of thing! Our culture has awful taste.
    Gods and men name her Aphrodite...Cyprus-born, because she was born in wave-dashed Cyprus; and lover of smiles, because she emerged out of the genitals.

    I don’t really like superhero movies that much, for me it’s just something to talk about or watch with my family. The only ones I really like are Watchmen and the Dark Knight trilogy.

    The Sisters Brothers I thought was good. I watched that one a few days ago.

    I really want to see the new John Wick movie but I’m going to have to wait until it comes out on disc. Replicas was ok I thought. Not that great really. Like a modern Frankenstein.

    I watched Glass last night. I thought it was ok, liked Unbreakable better. Thought James McAvoy did a pretty good job playing his part. The music in it was kind of strange I thought, and scary (ha), but I guess it kind of worked?

    The theme of Equilibrium (2002) movie is how people reject the important part of own psyche. The cost they pay to be easier controlled. While the one who ruled by them did not rejected that in own psyche. People were made such as slaves.
    With the lost of important part of Self people lived in repose, but were they happy and satisfied by that life? Following to reactions of main character - no. After he've contacted with the rejected part of own Self he never returned to previous state and tried to destroy the existent social relations. Which rob a part of peoples' Self, make them as not complete humans, make them as slaves.



    This associates good with duality effects people feel.
    Emotions what was demanded to supress in that socium. Christian Bale's type is LSI and the character's personality is close to this. His character gets the contact with his emotions - his suggestive region.
    It's a part of what dual does and dualization is. Dual improves your consciouse contact with your weak regions, makes your consciouseness more complete, returns your real Self to you and the energy which was in your unconsciousness befor. Dual also teaches you skills how to deal better with your weak regions.
    Types examples: video bloggers, actors
