Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Senso is high on my want to watch again list. I haven't seen it for over 30 years. Others I what to revisit are Ophelia, Spider's Strategy (rumoured to be coming out restored in 2019), Oedipus Rex and Il Grido. Would also like to see how We the Living holds up. It was restored in the early 1980's an...

Angela Winkler is a far superior actress than Alida Valli Angela Winkler a better actress than Alida Valli? :D Ok, Winkler is certainly a talented actress, but Valli had both talent and charisma - and beauty, too... a rare combination. As for Suspiria, I actually think that the original isn't crap ...

Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

El Angel (Argentina) 6/10 This is based on the murder/crime spree of Carlos Robledo Puch, a teenage who in the very early 1970's was dubbed 'The Angel' due to angelic looks that belied the evil lurking behind the perceived innocence. Director Luis Ortega handles the material in a rather light manner...

Suspiria (2018) Luca Guadegnino 3/10 Haha so even the remake is crap. Yeah, though its a very loose remake at best. David Kajhanich who wrote it keeps the story in 1977, maintains some of the characters and scenario's but adds in a lot more stuff. We end up with a bloated two and a half a film with...

The Old Man and the Gun (2018) David Lowery 8/10 Do you think Redford has any chance of getting nominated? Outside chance, but you never know. He certainly deserves a nomination, its his best performance ever, but given it hasn't taken off box office wise isn't going to help and that he has two Osc...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

On the other hand, what is the audience for Vice ? Who wants to see a film about Cheney when we have even more evil men running the country now? Indeed. I rarely watch trailers on-line so I only saw the trailer for Vice a few days ago at the cinema. It looks sort of entertaining but nothing beyond ...

Thanks Magila,

That explains Elle, Eat Drink Man Woman & Oh Lucy amongst others who all have U.S. connections that would qualify them.

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Not totally sure where to place this, but it’s worth noting that both Widows (in wide release) and Green Book (in limited) struggled at the box office this weekend. This is now three big studio dramas (First Man being the other) that seemed poised to be box office hits AND Oscar players that have f...

Re: Film Independant Spirit Awards

Question: I understand why the ladies from The Favourite were not considered in the acting categories as the film is 'foreign' but why was Isabelle Huppert eligible for Elle a few years ago? Going through the acting nominations there have been a couple of other actresses from Foreign Language Films ...

Re: Film Independant Spirit Awards

You Were Never Really Here is my pick for worst movie of the year that isn't Gotti . What an empty, soulless film, I really didn't think it would be remembered by anyone all these months later. Haha I thought it was easily one of the best films of the year with such an amazing performance by Phoeni...

Thanks Magilla.

I'll watch the first and if I like it enough will proceed with the other. Otherwise, off to eBay.

Re: Widows reviews

I imagine most people are aware that the source material of the McQueen film was first adapted by British television in 1983. A sequel followed in 1985 and than another sequel titled She's Out in 1995. Does anyone know which of the British adapations the McQueen film adapts? I purchased the entire B...
