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.

Brilliant film-maker no doubt. But I agree with you on all three.

 

"Inglourious Basterds" was great, then he seemed to fall off the cliff.

Watched some incredible foreign language films over the past 6 months: Parasite, Burning, Roma, Mustang and best of all, Capernaum.

 

Kodi Fen (and the great recommendations in this thread) are your friends.

Uncut Gem.

 

Thought it was just a shouty mess myself. 

 

5/10

Turned it off after 20 minutes as it was giving me a headache. Absolute load of noisy shite.

Come As You Are - comedy/drama about three men with disabilities who take a road trip to a brothel to lose their virginity. Funny and thought provoking. 8.5/10

Saw this a few years back and it was very good.

Think you might be confusing it with something else as it only came out this year.

Must have been a similar idea from a foreign film I saw with the same storyline. I think it was a Scandinavian film set in somewhere like Barcelona.

Just looked at IMDB and the film I saw was made in 2011 and has the same name,so obviously a remake.

I love the old epic Kung Fu films snd John Woo films. 

 

If you've not seen them

 

 

 

John Woo

 

The Killer

A better tomorrow 

Bullet in the head

hard boiled

 

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

Great film, but I honestly prefer the sequel. The final twenty minutes of A Better Tomorrow II are, in my opinion, the pinnacle of Woo's gunfights. Just sheer bombastic insanity. The face off with the assassin baddie is fucking immense, up there with my favourite cinematic moments of absurd machismo. It's just a pity we'll probably never see the full director's cut of the film.

 

As for samurai flicks, Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins has similarly absurd levels of final reel stylised violence, and is a surprisingly restrained film for Miike.

"Snowpiercer"

 

I really enjoyed that.

 

8 of 10

 

(If you're going to watch it, make sure you have the subtitles on.)

I have the subtitles on permanently for everything these days. I either can't understand actors voices/accents, or there's too big a difference between the quiet bits and that loud bits.

Same. The last series of True Detective was absolute torture, and quite a few of the BBC's recent dramas have been mumble central.

 

Pornhub and XHamster really need to get with the times though, I can't understand the muffled screams and whimpers I hear on half the videos I watch there.

Uncut Gems 6/10

 

Was OK but just wanted it to be over with half an hour or so left. 

 

 

The last half an hour was the best part I thought.

You Were Never Really Here

 

One of the best films I've seen in ages. Beautifully shot, well acted, atmospheric, dark, brooding and edited to perfection for pacing. Really taut filmmaking. The score was haunting too, and it was only at the end I saw it was Jonny Greenwood, which made perfect sense. He's building a solid name for this type of thing.

Mollys Game. True story of Molly Bloom who ran an illegal poker game for the rich. Just watched it now, really enjoyed it. 

 

Jessica Chastain, Kevin Costner and Idris Elba. Biggest downside was Idris Elbas American accent.  8/10

The actor alleged to be played in that film is Toby Maguire.

 

But then you knew that, right?

That bit about Elba's accent is odd seeing as when I watched The Wire back in the day I was stunned to find out he was English..
