Michael Clayton?

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 December 2017 02:43 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I did consider this

Right I'll throw out some faves

But rly our contentious bones seem to focus on superhero/comic book adaptations post... blade? That might be an interesting seam to mine

Have not seen Michael Clayton. Considered it this evening tbh....seems a bit likely to be serious, worthy, desky

Thought syriana was good fwiw

My top ten includes, right now, once upon a time in the west, miller's crossing, it happened one night and maltese falcon. Surely a few there to get a bedrock in place?

Seems a low bar tho

Feel rather that I should attack yr defence of hellboy and see how it holds up and you can similarly test my opinion that Watchmen is somewhat of a genre pinnacle and we'll really start seeing the shape of things

OUATITW is a good baseline. you should check out Godless if you Netflix.

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 December 2017 02:51 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I do and will

Kung Fu hustle all reasonable ppl agree is close to the new millenniums best mix of action, comedy, pathos....but will you acknowledge that the good, the bad, the weird is a worthy effort in the same vein

Rename thread to deems and tombot rather genially offer movies

If Rian Johnson could trade one of his upcoming Star Wars universe movies to Stephen Chow I’d pay quadruple for tickets to watch it in a broom closet with five other people on a laptop

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 December 2017 03:01 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Hmm I'd rather have him helm an Indiana Jones, think his kinetic eye would be wasted in space perhaps

Actually what's he done since Kung Fu hustle that i should be grabbing?

Feel free to chime in, other posters

journey to the west was good if a little overloaded on the CGI front, still funny tho

Cheers, on the list

I'm bummed enough that Johnson's throwing away his best years on four Star Wars, don't wish IP servicing on Chow too

I can't see him coming out the other side with four Blue Velvets in a row

superhero movies are fun

my faves are batman 1989, batman begins, dark knight, capt america, thor 1 was decent

is sin city a superhero movie? or just a movie based on a comic i guess, id throw that one in there

kinda got bored of watchmen, fell asleep at one point iirc

one of the xmen movies shld be in there, cant remember which one bc most of them are so bad its embarrassing

i think thats abt it

infinity (∞), Friday, 29 December 2017 17:12 (two weeks ago) Permalink

also i remember liking the crow when it came out

never watched it again after so im wondering how id feel abt it now

darraghmac, do you rate any of the Cornetto trilogy?

El Tomboto, Friday, 29 December 2017 17:48 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Diminishing returns as a set

But Shaun is great

And taken on its own hot fuzz is better than good tbf

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Friday, 29 December 2017 18:21 (two weeks ago) Permalink

thats the english zombie comedy one right?

infinity (∞), Friday, 29 December 2017 18:24 (two weeks ago) Permalink

have u both seen early John Boyega appearance and Cornetto-adjacent alien invasion romp Attack the Block?

.oO (silby), Friday, 29 December 2017 18:25 (two weeks ago) Permalink

That was good yeah

Not as good as ilx said but the bits that were good were excellent.

Boyega a star in it already for sure

I did not think this thread would culminate in Wonder Woman but that just shows the limits of my imagination

El Tomboto, Monday, 1 January 2018 19:49 (two weeks ago) Permalink

watchmen is good not bad in the sense that it transmits well the badness of the bad comicstrip it bring to life

the hobbit 1-3: also good (not in this^^^ sense tho)

Won't ever see the Hobbit not even if Tolkien himself visited me three times on Christmas night entreating me to do so

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Monday, 1 January 2018 20:30 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Mark s is a good guy and not alone on ilx in being that but also as far as I can tell utterly untrustworthy in his opinions.

But the world is the better for good ppl we disagree with it makes for better pub talk

My Friend Dahmer is a great superhero movie

shackling the masses with plastic-wrapped snack picks (sic), Monday, 1 January 2018 20:58 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Sin city a superhero movie imo because characters have superhuman powers

Uh I can't speak for the other

I hear good things.

That's the doc and not the dramatisation?

Negotiated and agreed with herself for an 11.30 am Sunday viewing so will be back with disagreement or otherwise in record time.

It was good!

Hi was criticising mark strongs accent- usually a strong point of his- then I remembered cc obrien

remember the lmao (darraghmac), Sunday, 7 January 2018 15:58 (one week ago) Permalink

NB no documentary exists perhaps it was a podcast or interview I'd heard about. There is a book.
