    Yeah, look forward to it’s release. It sounds a lot heavier than TDK though so will be ITSTL.

    It sounds a bit divisive, with a couple of really bad reviews from RogerEbert.com and TIME.

    The bad reviews I’ve read is stuff that I don’t really care about tbh.

    I’d rather a Joker movie done in a recklessly self indulgent way rather than have a strictly karmic moral arc or be a progressive addition in social commentary terms.

    Some excellent dog on hippie violence. Worth the admission for that scene alone. Thoroughly enjoyable overall too though.
    Just went to see this. Sort of vague spoilers to follow, but not going to give any details.

    Did anyone else go in with the expectation that the ending would go exactly like it did? It was the obvious Tarantino thing to do and it went exactly like I thought it would.

    I wouldn't say that took away from the film all that much but it did leave me thinking 'Alright here we go' instead of 'Oh ****' when it happened.

    Yeah I expected a twist,,,but as it was so absurd I had to laugh especially with Leo at the end. Job done QT.


    In Fabric is excellent btw guys,, pretty silly compared to his previous work but Strickland is an incredible director.

    Saw it last night. Thought it was alright; I was entertained and it was fun. Not his best work, not his worst.

    New Joker feels like a 70s Sidney Lumet movie. Loving the vibes so far and Phoenix is gold obviously.

    Watched Parasite last night. It's a wickedly funny Korean class drama, and I can see why it won the Palm d'Or. Terrific entertainment.

    Saw the trailer the other night and was impressed. Looking forward to it.

    Meanwhile, IT Chapter Two was about what I was expecting. It was always going to struggle to be as good as the first, because IMO it's the much weaker part of the book. I found the "kids" part had a much more creepy and unsettling atmosphere running through it, which isn't really there as much when they come back as adults.

    I also thought the film was a bit over-long at 169 min. Since they'd already left out a lot of the things that made the deranged bully Bowers a relevant character in the adult phase, they possibly could have trimmed that duration a bit by cutting him out of this one altogether. He didn't add a lot.

    But the acting was really solid - I was pleasantly surprised by Bill Hader in particular. And the Stephen King cameo was a nice touch.

    I actually think it would work much better as a 10 episode mini-series than a 2-part film series. That way you could much more easily follow the back and forth narrative of the book. As it is, the part with the adults is always going to feel like a weird anti-climax. Ah well, something for Netflix to think about in 27 years time.

    Ha was going to recommend this also. Its bloody superb.

    I won't pretend to be an expert on Asian cinema, but some absolute sensational films coming from that area of the world....Burning, The Handmaiden, Shoplifters and Ash Is Purest White among my favs.

    Yeah, loved all of those you mentioned. There are a lot of bloody great films coming out of that part of the world these days.A couple of others from Bong well worth a look are Memories of Murder and Mother.
