Discussion Instead of remaking "The Princess Bride", why not explore the universe before it?

436 Upvotes

Occasionally I see discussions of a remake and I'm in the camp of "There's a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one." I did have a thought of a series that I think would work. Let's call it "Dread Pirate Roberts" which would explore the world of the ones before Westley. You have the built-in nostalgia without ruining what is viewed as a perfect movie. Thoughts?

Favorite Wes Anderson Film?

94 Upvotes

For me it's The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The visuals, while still in keeping with Anderson's usual quirky style, seemed grander in scope this time around. The scene with Gustave/Zero chasing after Jopling down the mountain and the literal cliffhanger scene that followed was particularly well done.

I also think the humor really shone through in this one more so than any of his other films, with Ralph Fiennes performance especially fun to watch throughout. Elsewhere, the dialogue felt consistently snappy, with everyone getting in some great lines.

What's your favorite Wes Anderson film and why?

Juliette Lewis, the kind of actress you know is going to deliver in anything she is in.

94 Upvotes

I don't even think Juliette Lewis was given the massive breaks she deserved because of how unconventional she looks. She can play sexy or innocent but never in a predictable way.

It sucked that Lewis' time as a leading lady in the 90s didn't last long but at least she has thrived as a character actress, even if some of the movies she starred in were shit like CONVICTION where she was superb in a small part or even in MA where she was pretty good in the generic mother role.

I'm so glad she's getting great reviews for YELLOWJACKETS. I hope the show gives her the boost STRANGER THINGS did for Winona Ryder.

Best work from her? NATURAL BORN KILLERS, I'm still miffed she didn't get a nomination for this movie.

The Descent (2005)

54 Upvotes

I originally saw this when it came out and really enjoyed it, especially as I went in blind to it. I rewatched it the other night and although I ultimately knew what was coming, I still really enjoyed it.

The tension of the first hour still remains tense because of the claustrophobia, and so it was still an exciting watch.

What struck me the most about it though on rewatching was that it's almost exclusively a female cast, but it doesn't fall foul of the stereotypes of the day when it comes to women. These are all strong women, both physically and mentally. In fact when it does touch on tragedy, or emotional subjects, it does so in a way that doesn't make the woman weak.

The one flaw it has that isn't that much of a flaw is character development. For most of the cast you don't really know much about them, and so don't necessarily grow that attached to them. This isn't a major problem though because really we're just vicariously watching a group of mates go spelunking, and as a result of that the movie moves quite quickly. There's barely a boring moment in the film because we're not learning everyones back story.

I've tried to write this without spoiling any of the movie for those that haven't seen it, but if you're after a tense action movie with a female cast that aren't stereotypes, I highly recommend this movie.

Discussion Kenneth Branaugh’s performance as Dr Arliss Lovelace in Wild Wild West is honestly one of my favorite performances of his.

23 Upvotes

Yes it’s very cartoony and cliche villain. Take away all the goofy and cringy 90s humor and you can see the vestige of a darker plot that was the original intention.

Yes it doesn’t make any sense how the character is physically still alive. But Kenneth nails it, nails the accent, and the charm and rancor the character gives off. Dude has no legs but he’s frightening. Very much a character I wish I could’ve seen more of, especially since he had a very Disney esc death. Not a terrible movie but a bit far fetched and a victim of the 90s movie humor. I’d love to see Kenneth play this character again. But we all know it would never happen lol. I often find myself watching this movie to watch Dr Lovelace.

Recommendation Any other films like Chef (2014), where the conflict is at the start and the rest of the film is just feel good?

615 Upvotes

Caught Chef again this week and forgot just how fun it is. After the start, where JF is fired and reveals how distant he is with his son, the rest of the film is just feel good as they bond, make great food and just bounce off each other with chemistry.

There was no conflict or drama towards the end for someone to them redeem themselves etc., it was just nice and something I'd love to watch more of.

So any suggestions would be awesome!

Discussion Watching Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind after your ex dies hits different

14 Upvotes

This is my favorite movie of all time. Seen it about 10 times and every time I watch it the movie feels so different.

Watched this movie when we were together, cried at the thought of us being erased from each-others’ lives.

Watched this movie after we broke up, cried because “if only we had a second chance!!!!!” Hey, but at least we will never forget about each-other.

Watched this after he died. Man it fucking hurt. The scene in the house: “Come back and make up a goodbye at least, let's pretend we had one...” That really got me. Also the memory-erasing aspect is so real now. All of the memories we shared only exist with me now. When Clem and Joel get a second chance together, that also hurts so much. God it hits so different.

This movie is great and no matter who you are I think you’ll feel something. If your ex is dead and you want to feel like absolute shit, I recommend this movie.

If you could make a biopic about any one human being, who would it be, why, and who would you cast as that person?

For me, I think we’re overdue for a big Teddy Roosevelt movie. Larger than life figure, immensely important in American history, dynamic, controversial. Scorsese was supposedly going to do one with Leo in the lead, but it got scrapped. Maybe now he’ll pick it up again with Jesse Plemons, since he’s working with Jesse on Killers of the Flower Moon.
