I watched 2/3rd of Jurassic World on a plane with the fiance. It was dumb.
Trainwreck was pretty good entertaining stuff that means I’m on board with Amy Schumer.
Dr. No was a C+ with potential. You see why they made more movies based on that movie. Based on my adult James Bond viewing experience I can’t imagine the emotions of someone trying to watch them all in order. Like A View To A Kill was a bad movie, but I don’t feel like a lot of the pre-Craig films are that much better in tone or excitement levels. I thought OHMSS tried to hit an emotional note or two, but it also has the vaginas of the world buffet and a never ending ski chase. I have a hardtime going for emotion when they are also dealing with these goofy and ridiculous and man’s man man man moments. There is a whole bunch of them on Hulu+ now so when I get sick of my dumb art films I will check out another Bond.
The Man Who Left His Will On Camera was 100% student art film. It didn’t make a lot sense. It had almost zero pacing. A woman gets raped 4 times. It is completely emotionless. I kept thinking how Japanese Summer Double Suicide was the same sort of thing, but way better (and same director.)
Drunken Angel is Kurosawa and 1948 Tokyo. I liked all the use of black and the heavy heavy scars from the war. There is a scene right at the end where a woman cries, and it is pure absolute grief. It made me think about how everyone on that set an in that film had that grief inside them. You didn’t need an actor. The war’s wounds were so fresh and everywhere. The movie was whatever though. I’ve never super enjoyed a Kurosawa. Or an Ozu.
