I hope Oldboy is on your list. 

 

After I'm finished with Bong, Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance will get a look in. I reckon by then I'd be sufficiently fine tuned to the Korean canon.  I may fall down for no apparent reason several times while watching it or suddenly jump in the air and kick someone in the chest.

I would rather shove rusty horseshoes* up my arse than watch an Adam Sandler film.

*With the horse still attached..

Yeh, not a fan myself but did watch one on a plane, with him as Walter Mitty which was decent.

"Once Upon A Time In Hollywood"

 

What a waste of time and talent. 

 

3 of 10, and if I were subtracting the really shitty bits from the okay bits, this one would be in negative numbers.

__________________________

"Joker"

 

Other than garnering Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar nomination, what was the point of that mess?

 

Or was it some bizarre send-up of "King of Comedy"? Am I missing something?

___________________________

 

I'm starting to wonder if this is just a result of age: every time I watch a movie, it's basically me thinking "I've seen this before, and the original was better".

 

The problem being of course that the original is always better than the imitation, and if I were watching "Joker" or "Parasite" without having seen, say, "Taxi Driver" or "Swept Away..." would I have an entirely different take on both?

 

Not Once Upon, though. That was crap.

In what way is Swept Away by Guy Ritchie, starring Madonna, with a rating of 5% on Rotten Tomatoes, a better film than Parasite?

I didn't see that one, but if Madonna was in it, I'm guessing in no way was it better than Parasite.

 

Yep, I was referring to the original.

Youngest lad (13) just got back from the cinema with his friends. They watched 'Sonic the Hedgehog' and he said it's a 8/10. Good story with funny moments but he thought the effects weren't as good as they could have been.

I think 3 out of 10 is a bit generous, much like Hateful 8 and Django if it hadn't been made by Tarantino it would get absolutely panned.

 

Massive Emperors Clothes Syndrome going on with what he makes now.

I have quite a few Korean films stashed away, people used to rave about them so I kept collecting them without actually watching any (as I get older I get more resistant to fads) so I've decided it's time, climate apocalypse is coming and we may not have too long.

 

I started with Bong Whatshis Name and I am making my way slowly towards Parasite. Must say so far, these Korean films are totally bonkers, mostly not in a good way. Memory of a Murder and The Host down, Mother and Okja to go, then Parasite. Snowpearcer is beginning to look more and more like an oasis of moderation, sanity and ascetic adherence to absolute plausibility now, and I though it was fairly insane but captivating.

Uncle Boonme? Weird film that. Bit fishy.

Japanese films

Akira Kurosawa Samurai Collection 

When the last sword is drawn

The twilight Samurai(brilliant film) 

 

Most of Takeshi 'Beat' Kitano work is superb, especially the early gangster stuff

Yeah, Sonantine. Class film.

 

Also, his part in Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence (Oshima directed) is great as well.  Battle Royale too, of course.

    • Liverpool Football Club would like to update supporters on ticket refunds following the UK government's confirmation of support for the potential of a return of professional football. As we informed you on April 20, all supporters who have purchased tickets from LFC for any of our remaining four Premier League home games will receive a refund for the cost of their ticket(s). Refunds will also be provided to those supporters who have purchased a ticket for our away game against Everton and/or the Liverpool FC Women’s game against Everton Women at Goodison Park.   The general principles of the refund process are set out below: Season ticket holders and official Members Season ticket holders will receive a full pro rata refund for all remaining home games, while Members who have purchased tickets on a match-by-match basis will receive a refund for any of the matches that they have purchased tickets for.  Seasonal and matchday hospitality  Hospitality season ticket holders will receive a full pro rata refund for all remaining home games. Those supporters who have purchased tickets for matchday hospitality for any remaining home fixtures will also be refunded.  All other supporters with tickets Fans who do not fall into one of the above groups but have purchased a match ticket for any of the remaining fixtures will receive a full refund. Any fans who have purchased tickets for LFC Foundation’s charity match between Liverpool FC Legends and Barça Legends, which was scheduled to take place at Anfield in March, will be contacted separately in due course. We are currently working through the most effective process to issue refunds given the complexities and considerations of the various payment methods used when tickets were purchased.  We will be contacting each affected ticket holder during the course of the next 14 days to provide more information on the refund process based on the category of ticket they have purchased. We ask that all supporters wait to receive further correspondence from the club and refrain from contacting us regarding refunds in the meantime. We would like to thank supporters for their patience and understanding while we carry out the refund procedure.   Finally, our priority remains the health and wellbeing of our people, the local community and all supporters during this challenging time and we hope that you all are staying safe and healthy. 
    • I think Mane is/was much more likely to leave.  Salah has made a move to a "big club" (yes, it's Chelsea, but they'd won the CL only 2 years previous) and have it all go wrong, so I think he'll be more wary of moving when he's on to a really good thing already.  Mane though might see this as his only chance to play for Real or Barca (that's still a thing isn't it)
    • I listened to the podcast, I thought they were pretty much all in favour of the restart. Custis raised (and not unreasonably imo) the idea of what you do if you start and need to stop again and perhaps this should be sorted before we start playing. Personally I disagree with that as if someone gets "safe" the have a vested interest in getting the season stopped. 
    • It amazes me just how much emotional effort rival fans put into the hatred of us. Yes I hate our rivals but nowhere near to the degree of obsession they appear to have for us.    Imagine being so consumed by hate for a fucking sports team and their fans that you even ruin christmas by wearing a blue santa suit ffs or having a lethal fear of the colour red.    You just know that even when their not talking about us it consumes them when they are doing something else as I bet my house that something will happen and the first thing they will relate it to is us.
