Discussion Ford v Ferrari (2019) Is the Best Car Movie I've Ever Seen
I don't know why I've slept on this movie for so long, given that I'm a fan of both Christian Bale and Matt Damon, but holy crap is this movie good!
First off, I feel like it could be enjoyed by both people who are into cars, and people who just want to see a good movie with tension, drama, solid acting and heartfelt moments.
The movie is less about Ford as an organization versus Ferrari, but more about the journey of Bale and Damon's characters as they try to build the best car they can, despite all the setbacks. It really shows their passion for what they do and the bond that these people had.
The racing sequences are incredible, and never have I felt so much tension while looking at a rev meter on a car!
For anyone who hasn't seen this, I highly recommend it!

Discussion The physicality of Keanu Reeves and other 55+ actors inspires me to be better.
Finally watched John Wick 4 yesterday. Keanu Reeves is 58, Donnie Yen 59, Hiroyuki Sanada 62.
Being their fan, seeing them move with such swiftness, skill, endurance and agility never ceases to amaze me. But yesterday, with JW4's incredible cinematography, choreographies and music, it was outright touching watching these three veteran artists still at the top of their game.
It happened to me too with Tom Cruise in Top Gun Maverick too. Watching them with that music score and the emotional beats of the story gives me strength not just to work on my health but to keep fighting to improve on my career, personal life, etc. I know I must accept I will slowly decline but they're such great examples that you don't have to "go gentle into that good night"!

Discussion The Rocketeer is a much better movie than I expected
watched it for the first time recently. I know it has a decent cult following but was worried it would be one of those movies you have to be a kid to really like. Luckily, this wasn't the case at all and I really enjoyed the hell out of this early 90s superhero film. Love how it is basically a superhero film but with a dash of Indiana Jones. Bill Campbell is perfect in the lead. Honestly this guy I think could have made a great Clark Kent/Superman if there had been a Superman film in the 90s. Timothy Dalton is just awesome as the villain playing both the charming actor part and evil Nazi part great and Jennifer Connelly, Damn! What more can be said about her. Loved the late great Paul Sorvino as the supporting bad guy. The moment where he turns against Sinclair is a great moment. Also this might be one of James Horner's best score. What happened to majestic scores like this? Movies will never be the same after Horner died.
If I do have an issue, I just wish the movie was a bit longer and we saw a little more of Cliff using the rocket a bit more before the climax. Maybe a scene of him stopping some robbers or something
It's a shame that this movie didn't do very well at the box office when it came out. It would have been great if this had been a franchise. Guess it was doomed being sandwiched between Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Terminator 2 and not having any real box office draw.

Discussion What’s a movie that you absolutely love but know will never ever get a sequel or reboot?
So what’s something no studio, whatever either touch, or care to ever make a follow up or reboot? And it’s gotta be something you adore.
Mine is Small Soldiers! It's an absolute classic from the 90s, that I still watch every year and it still holds up! Also, throw in there Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Hook, and Galaxy Quest

Discussion Cool Hand Luke (1967)
Watched this movie for the first time today after finding it on the iTunes Store for $4.99. I’ve long been a fan of Paul Newman and, as this is one of the rare 100% movies on RT and contains #11 on the AFI’s 100 Years, 100 Movie Quotes List (What we’re dealing with here is failure to communicate.), I felt compelled to finally give it a watch.
To say it was more than worth the five dollars is an understatement. Newman played the title role brilliantly and there were solid supporting roles from George Kennedy as fellow inmate Dragline and Strother Martin as the villain, the Captain.
Its role as one of the earliest anti-establishment films of the Vietnam War era and its subtle use of Christian imagery are quite remarkable and the film certainly holds up after almost six decades. It is especially enjoyable if you’re a fan of other prison dramas such as The Shawshank Redemption as there’s a rather similar tone between the two films.
This one, in my opinion, has certainly earned its 100% RT rating and is well worth the watch. I was quite glad to find it at such a great price and highly recommend this for addition to your film collection if you haven’t already seen it.

Discussion I want some action scifi or fantasy movies from the 80s like big trouble in little China, flash Gordon, krull, highlander, and escape from New York.
I would like more 80s action scifi or and fantasy movies with a particular vibe like these movies with a lot of creativity and passion put into them, a little campy, maybe even on purpose, good characters and actors, cool and unique sets, good musical score and soundtrack, and an 80s vibe. Only other ones I could think of are masters of the universe, cyborg 89, the last starfighter, and maybe willow. Anything else like this?
Discussion What do movies get right that you wouldn't have believed until you were in that job or found out otherwise?
Over the years, I've read a few posts that look at the things movies frequently get wrong. I'm just intrigued as to whether there are situations where the opposite is true. Have any of you been in weird situations through work or just in life that most people would probably scoff at if it came up in a film?
Discussion Thoughts on Coming to America (1988)?
Coming to America turns 35 this year. This is considered one of the best Eddie Murphy films. I think it has aged well with time which is surprising because rom-coms have a mixed track record.
The film has a slow, sweet pace where character interactions lead the story. It has the usual romantic comedy cliches till the last moment. But the execution was good. I think the casting was brilliant and the film does have abundant comedic scenes. Loved the dudes at the barbershop having a good time.
The casting was really well done with John Amos as Cleo McDowell & James Earl Jones as the King being standouts.
It was interesting to see the lack of music in many places. Sometimes the movie felt awkward due to the lack of score and slightly weak editing. But overall the direction gets it home.
My rating: 7/10.

Discussion Good Werewolf films besides An American Werewolf in London, The Howling and Dog Soldiers?
I absolutely love Werewolf films and have seen many but want some suggestions in case there are good ones I have missed.
An American Werewolf in London is not only the greatest Werewolf film of all time (That Ive yet seen) but also one of the best Horror Comedies and dare I say Horror in general of all time.
Same can be said of Dog Soldiers. Ever since watching it as a child Ive loved this film. I still remember the DVD case 'Jaws, Aliens and Predator with a Werewolf twist'. Literally Aliens with Werewolves I love it.
But as the title are there any others you recommend? What are your favourites?
Discussion What movie is better when you watch as an adult than when you watch it as a kid?
Just the title.
Question came to me by watching Lilo and Stitch again as an adult. As a kid it was a funny movie about a girl and her pet alien doing wacky hijinks in the face of her annoying older sister and funny aliens, and I remember it was okay.
Watching it again I realised it's a surprisingly heavy movie about a struggling older sister in poverty trying to keep her sister while not having the means to support her.
Also, I realised that the movie has no real villain and all the characters I percieved as "evil" as a child were just well meaning adults in a complex situation.
- Nani - was trying to parent a difficult child as a teenager after losing her parents
- The scary social services agent - was just looking to do what's best for Lilo. As a kid I though he was just cruel.
- The scary alien councilwoman - was just trying to capture what she thought was a dangerous terrorist
Closest thing to a villain this movie has are Jumba the scientist and Stitch himself.
Brilliant movie that completely went over my head as a child.

Discussion Actors who are always changing their voices for roles
Brad Garrett doesn't have the Robert Barone voice in real life which is bizarre given he uses the Robert Barone voice in literally everything he does
On the other end of the height spectrum Warwick Davis has a posh, sophisticated voice in real life which is a huge departure from the wacky, silly high pitched voices he's usually putting on whenever he plays aliens, monsters, leprechauns, etc.

Discussion Marilyn Monroe usually played the dumb blonde but she was equally good at playing femme fatales. She's incredible in NIAGARA, a scheming adultress.
I love NIAGARA. Marilyn Monroe is such a bitch on that one but looking so good and glamorous in her pink dress, leaving all the men shaken by her beauty.
A married woman scheming to get her husband killed while slurping all over her lover in the Niagara falls, this is a far cry from her going all Googilly googly goo in most of the movies she's did.
But Jean Peters is also pretty good, as the neighbor who gets involved by seeing something she shouldn't have and taking matters into her own hands.

Discussion What is among your favorite 1990s movies?
I absolutely think What About Bob is a hidden gem. Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss are definitely great comedic actors in many films they do but this is just one of the funniest film they have each been in. I also enjoy Dumb and Dumber, Tommy Boy and other comedies of the era. As for dramas, I enjoy all the Clint Eastwood films such as Unforgiven. What is in the list of your favorite movies of the 1990s?

Discussion What are your examples of a 100% perfect film? Nothing can be cut
Like it says, the film is perfect start to finish, every scene is essential, there is no fat.
My pick is Spoorloos (1988) AKA The Vanishing
!!!SPOILERS AHEAD FOR SPOORLOOS!!!
From the moment the film starts with credits, there are shots of Rex and Saskia playing a game where they name things that start with a certain letter. Rex is teaching her to speak French. Both her lessons with Rex, and the specific game they use come into play when Saskia meets Raymond.
Seemingly silly things like the lighter Saskia buys Rex is the one he uses to light up his coffin(and it doesn’t last long because he’s used it for 3 years), and the price for the frisbee she buys is the same as the gift she wants to buy for Rex from Raymond. Raymond refers to many of these series of events as fate in the final act.
Anytime where someone is traveling from point A to B contains storytelling; Raymond walking to a work function sees a poster of a missing Saskia, and a conversation unfolds about why Raymond cares so much, and their conversation continues on how the coworker thinks kidnappers should be crucified, and Raymond asks what if it was him.
The longest traveling scene is when Raymond and Rex are together, and every bit of information you get from that point up until Rex is drugged is relevant. Even the conversation where the two are laughing about odd names, and Raymond mentions his neighbor’s dog name is Rex. Rex laughs about this in the grave as he shouts his name in defiance of the situation.
Rex running off when getting outside for a minute with his girlfriend ended up with him having the same floating egg dream that Saskia did.
Raymond’s brief scene in his classroom shows he’s an expert in Chemistry, therefore knows well how to use chemicals on his victims and how to mix them.
There are even more character details throughout this film, but at a tight 90 min, this film is meticulously decorated with detail, storytelling, and character development.
What are your picks??

Question What are common movie tropes that are false?
I'll go first. The "popular" kids bullying. Popular kids in highschool usually care about smoking/alcohol, relationships, and partying. Many are chill. You can get bullied by anyone in my experience. Usually people with low self esteem that if they make fun of you, they feel better. The only times I actually got bullied were by some racist kid and these two wanna be cool kids. The upper classman who were supposed to stuff me in a locker became my role models. And as a nerdy ass kid, my best friend was the captain of the football team. I feel that gen z’s highschool experience is different from the movies. Also, there are a lot of popular people who bully for sure, but I am just saying that many different groups of people bully. With social media everyone is more connected so the cliques in highschool will vanish more and more. These stereotypes definitely happen, but I feel that it’s changing. Also my experience is not everyone’s I am just saying that movies can warp reality a lot.

Discussion Whats a movie you grew up on as a child but won’t let your own kids watch?
For me, i was born in 87 and grew up watching Aliens, Predator and Conan on VHS. I probably got into them when i was 6/7 years old in 1993 or 94.
Its probably a generational thing but i wont let my own kids (6 and a 9 year old) anywhere near a movie like Aliens or Predator lol..
Whats a movie you loved and grew up on but wont let your own kids watch?? Or a movie of similar viewing/classification?
