    Ok, Dook, Iíll try to be good. And actually you might like the Plaza flick well enough if you donít mind certain things not fitting together in a satisfying way. But damn, that last film I mentioned was nothing more than a tough slog, stay away.

    This opened in select theaters on 5/14 And is supposed to be expanding. Pretty limited at the moment, though.

    Here's a list of where it is currently screening:

    Mads' supporting characters really made the plot sing.

    I am a cheap bastard and refuse to pay an additional $6.99 on top of my Prime membership to watch a film.
    So it may be awhile before I see it....

    3.5 / 5

    Went to the cinema today for the first time in 11 months (pre-COVID I went at least once a week). Interesting to note that the last time I went to the movies I paid $160 to have the theater to myself. Today I went to a 10am screening, paid $9.75, and had the theater to myself!

    Saw the new Nic Cage flick.
    It is good.
    Cage is solid.
    The film is an interesting mix of genres and tropes and never what you expect it to be.

    The hype is strong on this joint.
    I am hoping it ain't all hyperbole.
    I did quite enjoy the writer/director's previous film, The Old Man & the Gun, so I am hedging that this endeavor will be solid.

    Heard it got pulled from UK theaters because of new Covid outbreaks, though.

    The Green Knight
    David Lowrey's (The Old Man & the Gun) latest cinematic endeavor is something of a departure for him as he takes leave of American shores and modern timelines to deliver a dream-like take on an Arthurian legend.
    The film unfolds in a languid manner, which threatens to teeter on the edge of tedium at times, but is never not visually arresting. There are constantly things happening out of frame or just out of focus in the background, tugging one's eyes away from the main action; so much so that it warrants a second and even perhaps a third viewing.
    As for the story itself, a rather straight forward quest becomes an ambiguous and at times quietly meditative journey filled with strange encounters and odd visages. Then the ending comes and whomps you upside the head like a rusty broad sword, leaving you slightly dazed and wondering what it was all about. Is it ultimately an examination of integrity? A deep dive into the concept of honor? A hero's journey of self discovery? A vain escapade for fame and glory? Or a rumination on destiny and fate and the futility to alter your life's path? The film will definitely linger long after viewing and should spark lively post screening discussion.
    On top of all this, the cast is top-notch, featuring a lot of familiar faces delivering nuanced and immersive performances. Furthermore, it is all held together with a richly textured score.

    Just watched this last night. I thought it was absolutely stunning, great review Dookey. Drenched in dream-like ambiguity, the film is so unique and such a departure from other movies of the genre.

    Watch it if you like: A24 movies.

    The Suicide Squad
    4/5
    I laughed.
    I cried.
    I was on the edge of my seat.
    I gasped.
    I sighed.
    James Gunn should be the only person allowed to make cinematic adaptations of comic books.
    Gonzo good.

    Hmmmm .....

    Imma disagree. Was it better than the first one? Yes. But.
    I felt it lacked in continuity, had a weak story line and dialogue, lacked originality, and even failed at it's obvious attempted farce. I was disappointed given the quality cast. I've only watched two DC movies, though, so maybe compared to most DC movies .....
    No wait, I did see Wonder Woman 1 - best DC I've seen.

    Dooks: consolation, Dorohedoro is truly the shiz.

    Oh well, to each their own.
    I enjoyed The hell out of It.
    I thought the continuity was tight, the dialogue crisp, and was plenty original compared to say The Avengers films or JLA. And I think Gunn nailed the farcical elements. He's a much cleverer director than Whedon and way better than Snyder.
    I was not a fan of the first WW film, fwiw.


    This is in the Top 10 of Comic Book Movies for me, easy.
    Batman (Tim Burton)
    Iron Man
    Captain America
    Guardians 1
    Guardians 2
    Shazam
    The Dark Knight
    Atomic Blonde
    The Suicide Squad

    I might add del Toro's Hellboys and both Ant-man's as runners-up and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
    I may have missed some...


    Glad you dug Dorohedoro. Heard S2 got greenlit.

    Thatís not a bad list. Iíd take out iron man and captain America and replace them with Into the Spiderverse and Black Panther, personally
