it's probably depressing for an english who sees such neighborhoods. at least that's what i understood from demonyo's wording.

a bit like clockwork orange but updated (that kind of neighborhood)

it's a sad movie though but it has also its satisfactions plus that pretty girl who looks a bit like a puppet what's her name emily mortimer who was in the newsroom with the same accent

it's watchable. it's not a masterpiece. it's an action movie mostly-- geezer action movie not like the disposables or what is their name. more serious. but also eh fantastic. dirty harry at 85.

The best description I can think of is Death Wish meets Nil By Mouth

Anyway, far less depressing, I just rewatched:

 


Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift

I love the 1st few films in this franchise, when it was basically just about racing. This isn't my favourite of those ones but it has Han, easily the coolest character in the series.

I cannot believe this is still a thing. It boggles my mind. They just released film number FUCKING EIGHT. And apparently films NINE AND TEN are already a go.

What (as the kids say) the actual fuck.

Hell or High Water. West Texas bank robberies. Not bad, but Jeff Bridges, damn he was awful in it.

The last movie I saw was The Last Movie.
Dennis Hopper proved he had no idea of what to shoot and how to edit a movie. Too bad, the idea beneath the film was interesting.

It's definitely just pure economics at this point. The money that franchise makes is mind-boggling. I'm sure everyone involved reckons it needs to die but they're just making too much money keeping it alive.

I heard Jason Statham and Dwight Johnson are making a spin-off or something? Like, in retaliation to the actual franchise, presumably doing something they didn't like? I actually don't think either of those actors are in any of the movies, but who the fuck can tell anymore?

I think 99.9 percent of franchise films just totally and epically suck. Not counting trilogies, of which there have been some goddamn good ones like Evil Dead, Dark Knight, the "Dollars" trilogy (aka The Good, the Bad & the Ugly and predecessors), The Godfather, Polanski's Apartment trilogy — but once you get past 3, you're pretty much guaranteeing either commercial or critical failure and humiliation.

The exceptions are, I guess,
- Harry Potter, in the sense that all of the movies are fun to watch and hit their mark
- Stars Wars, if you exclude the prequels
- Star Trek if you exclude everything from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home to the 2009 reboot
- and Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies. Yeah, they might look like separate interconnected series and trilogies, but let's be honest... they're all just one big circle-jerk, from Iron Man to Doctor Strange. But they hit their mark and none of them eat total shit, so that's a success story baby!

That's all I can think of. What's that you say? James Bond? I challenge you to watch those movies as an adult and tell me that more than three of them are actually good films.

What the fuck was I talking about when I started this? Oh, Fast and Furious. Yeah. Never seen a goddamn one of them. Caught a few minutes on Tv once and learned all I needed to know.

They were both in Furious 7 and Dwayne Johnson was also in the 5th one. But yeah, I've heard about a spin-off too.

Re franchises. I suppose trilogies have a certain cultural credibility, given their origin in Greek drama, but past 3 is hard to justify on any creative grounds, except for the rare exceptions you mention.

I defend the James Bond franchise on its own terms for its apparently unique ability to evolve while somehow staying true to its basic idea (Bond, mega-villain, Bond-girl, car, gadgets, Q, exotic locations). If ever there's an example of how a franchise can work both commercially and creatively it's that, regardless of if you happen to like the films or not.

an australian one, distributed by ifc, with some redheaded girl that looks kinda russian to me (emily browning), and parts of the movie are a bit salò-like. i went in with low expectations, then liked it, then i didn't "get" the end, but i still liked it

Serenity was on TV the other day. It's a weird one, parts of it were very good, other parts not so. The spaceships looked very fake to me, like they came of a very low budget SciFi Channel movie.
Perhaps I missed too much though, I kept channel hopping during the commercial breaks and then forgot to switch back...

why do all of the 20+ channels always have commercial breaks at exactly the same time ??
