Watched IT (2017) over the weekend. Was a pretty big meh-fest, but better than the old teleplay, which has aged SUPER POORLY.


For some reason Amy Adams is not playing the adult version of Beverly in Chapter 2. Jessica Chastain is. Which leads me to believe one thing: Amy Adams was unavailable or just said no.

There’s honestly no other possibility.

Ha, I have always wanted to rewatch the televised series. I remember it really freaking me out when younger, but I could totally see it not holding up at all nowadays.

Tried watching Bad Times at the El Royale.
 


It is 2.4 hours long. I made it about 2.1 hours... so stupid. Pointless Tarantino wanna-be with NO skillz at actual plot and story. so fucking dumb. I got progressively angrier at how stupid this movie, its writer, and its director are.

It felt like they killed off Jon Hamm's character because he needed to leave this shitty movie to go film the awesome Good Omens....

Having Chris "Thor" Hemsworth play a Charles manson-esque character in full thor-bod with ripped abs and perfect body grooming, was just a FUCKING DUMB casting decision....

Do it! Conquer your fear! Itís SOOO BAD!

Itís easy to understand how it would upset an 8-year-old, but... looks like a goddamn joke to me now.

48 Hours

I must've watched this a LOT when it came out cos I realised while watching it again that I could recite almost all of Eddie Murphy's lines just before he delivered them. Much to the annoyance, I'm sure, of the person I watched it with who'd never actually seen it before.

I enjoyed this more than Hereditary. One thing I like about Ari Aster's films is that he doesn't flinch away from the horror. Much like Hereditary there a scenes that leave you picking up your jaw.

cbgb (2013)
 


the subject matter was great but the movie *as a movie* was just meh, so it adds up to okay. alan rickman was great as he usually was, but his presence marred by presentism and dumb concessions to the mainstream, like a character saying (in 1973 or 78 or whatever) that kristal should be drawn “on a pile of CDs” (im sure this didn’t refer to certificates of deposit) or patti smith singing the tune she wrote with springsteen in 1977 in her cbgb debut in 1975. time machines abound here for dramatic effect i suppose. the comic book “highlights” were a bit hammy. still, a joyful subject matter so why not.

followed by

the decline of western civilization (penelope spheeris, 1981)
 


no alan rickman unfortunately, but a lot better than the above movie. great little documentary really. on criterion.

Recently seen:

"Transit" (2019)- Christian Petzold is one of the best filmmakers in the world today and this one is yet another masterpiece, fusing the encroachment of 1930's German Nationalism with the fear mongering of our current immigration status as people strive to secure travel visas and escape. It's a brilliant hall of mirrors thriller.

"Honeysuckle Rose" (1980)- Luxuriates in Willie Nelson's cosmic cowboy vibe. Don't expect much of a plot, just a look at aimless stardom and honkeytonk music. Plus Slim Pickens.

"The Last Black Man In San Francisco" (2019)- I wish someone would infuse MY city with that much lyricism and depth. And the soundtrack, wow.

"Under the Silver Lake" (2018)- I adore Mitchell's previous films, and while this very strange sunshine noir has its moments of slacker greatness, it feels like the director is playing with us, never wanting us to take anything seriously but hoping we swallow it all as the second coming of Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye".

"His Kind of Woman" (1951)- Robert Mitchum doing his usual tough-guy routine as a degenerate gambler sent to Mexico for something sinister. Then Vincent Price shows up and this thing turns weird very quickly.

Looking forward to that one. Iím a Nordic myself, and I thought Heredity was fantastic.

Factotum

Fairly true to Bukowski's novel. Matt Dillon is always great although a little miscast here. But he's still a far more credible 'Chinaski' than Mickey Rourke managed in Barfly.

sure, but it’s not meant to be a fucking documentary

it’s about the destructive double edge of perfectionism, and sadism in the rarefied circles of high performance, etc.

comparable perhaps to michael haneke’s the piano teacher

showed that to a prof once who told me haneke must hate music hahaha.

but see, the prof was also an ex-piano player. up and quit at some point.

i think a lot of people lose joy in the practice of an art because they have to be perfect “or else...”

i know people who abandoned the cello, or dance, or a number of things, because they could not be good enough.

so, sure, jazzcats—it’s not a real story. but if it was so potent maybe it’s just that fletcher lurks within us all.
