the guy who wrote it was a fortress designer. yes, fortresses. the novel is similar in more than one way--it's supersophisticated and designed to kill XD


No on the book, but I have also seen Valmont https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098575/ that I somehow didn't connect at first, but once I realized both were based on the same story, it all clicked.


I'll add this book to my To Be Read.

oh hell man, yeah there are various movie versions of this, including one with john malkovich, but they by necessity simplify. the novel is full-on madness! can't be put down.

brilliant fucking film--dark, foreboding, mysterious, often scary quiet, a visual wonder. the editing, fuck, it's so good... great cast, great story, great everything. dare i say a masterpiece? yes, i do. masterpiece.

now i'm *trying* to watch the james cameron sequel, "alienS", and it comes across as a loud, stupid, ordinary piece of shit. 23m into it and i'm wondering if i can finish it...


Alien >>>>>>>>>> Aliens, for sure.

Watched the following with girlfriend this weekend:
• Halloween Ends: What a hot mess of shit
• Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil: Actually pretty good.
• The Northman: Quite a good film; maybe not quite as good as The VVitch, but better than The Lighthouse.

i mean, read some of the reviews on imbd. some turtlehead has the gumption of calling the transition between moviews "seamless." wtf. does he have eyes?

I totally agree, itís a sloppy mess and Alien is the superior film and the consensus on this should be universal

this is a great movie.
I had seen it many years ago, and only recalled the Robert de Niro parts, and no longer recalled the rest of the movie which is so much better. And bizarre.




Also:


 



It has a very fine cast, but it's just another Tarantino wannabe Reservoir Dogs type of movie that can't beat the originals.

this one was, growing up, a massive influence on me. i'm not sure if it was a good one, as it sort of promotes nihilism? but yeah... i was like "finally someone who understands" lolol.

and yeah i still hate christmas, and empty status-seeking, and bureaucratic regulations and paperwork XD


--

intent on wrapping up my netflix subscription this month i'm catching up with my list...


 


all quiet on the western front: i have never read the book but it was easy to figure out what the plot was going to be because obviously we know how things ended and yadda yadda.

this one didn't have the "being there" almost videogame feeling of 1917, because that was a different kind of thing, but it really looked amazing and felt realistic. between this one, kleo, and barbarians, the germans seem to be doing great on netflix. applause.

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.


Decent, I'd have no trouble watching it again, by any means, but I won't claim 10/10. Probably 7-8 range

this was a good movie, very depressing though. Hard to believe that this has actually happened, or maybe not so hard.




 



this one was quite horrible, I hate disaster movies and this is an Armageddon of all known disasters And Nicolas Cage
I should have known

I've seen that^ I think. Maybe not, memory is a bit fuzzy because narcotics. Talking of Narcotics (and Nicholas Cage) I saw Mandy last night. It's one of the most aesthetic and musically pleasing movies I've seen in awhile.


Skinamarink. There is an original approach to cinematography and liminal space obsession here. Unfortunately, the Lynch-esque atmosphere-nightmare fuel-build-up of tension is deflated by poorly timed cheap jumpscares and a vague plot.


I'm currently making my way through every kiyoshi Kurosawa movie, so you don't have to.

Some old school movies.


"Scrooge" from 1935
"A Christmas Carol" from 1938.

I had the idea that it'd be fun to download 20+ versions of 'A Christmas Carol' and stitch them together line by line.
