Get Carter

 

Talky and a bit hard to follow but I was happy to see this one lives up to it's reputation.

 

Original?

 

If so, it was filmed in my area. City: Newcastle (that pub is still there today). And some of the scenes during the end chase were filmed in my small town.

Yes original. I've heard nothing but bad things about the Stallone one.

Some truly awful films coming up at the cinema over the next few months including another Wonka remake, Aquaman, a Priscilla Presley biopic, a Bob Marley biopic and another Ghostbusters sequel! Mann's Ferrari film might be alright but I have no interest in cars or racing?

 

Only upcoming movie I'm looking forward to is The Iron Claw.

Just watched the new Paul Giamatti movie "The Holdovers."

 

It was good.  It had elements of classic boarding school movies like Rushmore and Dead Poets Society, but a dash of Wonder Boys but less bawdy.

 

I liked it.

The ones I've seen are Sideways and American Splendor.

I know some people think Ana Taylor Joy is a hot sexy bitch, but I can't even look at her without being distracted by the mile-wide gap between her creepy fish eyes.

 

That's been the latest "beauty standard" the homosexuals in the fashion and media worlds have been trying to push on us.  Doesn't work for me.  (See black Little Mermaid and brown Snow White for more examples.)  What a freaky alien look....not hot, in my opinion.

Yeah I've always said she looked like an insect or something. But fish eyes are just as good.

Night Moves

Melanie Griffith still 17 when this movie came out so I cannot comment on anything other than her acting ability which you know, isn't great. That said, the writing and performances are really sharp. It's a little uh, unsubtle at times, but far and away better than most in the last 30 years.

Everything about this chick annoys me. She even turned up in and kinda ruined Peaky Blinders for me every scene she was in.

Oppenheimer

 

Borderline masterwork territory and I liked the use of the subjective through visual flair and camera trickery. Easily the best Nolan I have seen. There is one sequence which may be the greatest thing he'll ever direct, when he is coming from that speech and the spectators start to develop radiation burns and so forth. That is top tier directing Mr Nolan. 

 

It is however a bit like Wolf of Wall St in that it covers a rather technical subject, be that stocks/shares or quantum physics, that Johnny Layman doesn't understand but is like bread and butter for the nerds in the film. Basically both films are stacked with ugly nerd characters and it is simply a different milieu from your regular Joe scratching his balls and addicted to sport. So there is a lot of exposition and mainstreaming of complicated subjects but I find some of it will be always lost so you just have to roll with it, or research and conduct a repeat viewing (both films have tremendous re-watch value).

 

It does dip into Scorsese territory, especially the procedural Strauss stuff. It reminds me of Scorsese's more recent historical films, Aviator, Irishman, KOTFM - Irishman especially. Or even Oliver Stone's JFK. 'America' up until a certain point in time when America ceased to be interesting. America up until the 1960s. 

 

I am glad Tube Alloys (the British project) got a cameo. Yes, the British had a big role and amalgamated their research with the Americans.

I think it covered the material well, even the simple difference between fusion and fission. Even nuke physicists do Marbles in a jar plutonium counts.
 

Teller getting in there with Fermi getting in there is enough depth. 
 

The whole Strauss conspiracy McCarthy era stuff is pure JFK. I love Los Alamos western stuff. Nuke cowboys.
 

Unlike Napoleon, JFK and Oppenheimer you are very close to the truth.
