The Squid and the Whale. I had watched it when I was younger - some time in high school - and didn't think much of it, but I liked it a good bit this time around.

yo... the new star wars movie was sick. i haven't really seen a lot of the others and i went in with no expectations - maybe even leaning towards negative expectations - but it was really good. i didn't really like that actor that played fin though. he was pretty corny sometimes.

Tis the season. What do you do in the industry if u don't mind me asking? I've been a bit disappointed by the screeners I've received this year, though I watched the hateful 8 today and loved it despite the length.

Saw the Hateful 8 last night in 70 MM and thought it was great.  i love bleak spaghetti westerns, and it definitely was that, but moreso a dialogue driven character study (like most QT movies).

the plot was pretty obviously based on this:

The Hateful Eight was amazing, in my opinion.  You're always on the same page as with movies as I am, my man!

Goddamn can't wait to see it, playing in 70mm right near my house.

Cutthroats 9 is easily in my top 5 of all time.  When I saw it the first time I thought "wow Quentin needs to rip this one"

Just saw the 70mm Roadshow screening of Hateful Eight.

Badass flick. Worth seeing. If you liked the opening of Inglorious, you'll like this.

Although I felt it wasn't a western at all. More of a horror movie, if anything! Just happens to take place in a western setting.

Just saw The Revenant in theaters, and I have to agree it was great, from the cinematography to the acting (Tom Hardy and Dicaprio were amazing). Inarritu is definitely becoming one of my favorite directors.

This one came out a while ago but I watched The Stanford Prison Experiment tonight and it was fucking good. The editing and soundtrack ratchet up the tension, and the acting all around was phenomenal. Great pacing, solid on all fronts. It's one of those films that you think about long after it's over. The film touches on social constructs and how we all fall into roles despite our best intentions or preconceived identities. This film oddly enough reminded me of The Road, in that you see what becomes of man when the rules are thrown out the window. I'm actually up now, drawing imaginary lines to things that probably shouldn't be connected, like the authoritarian figures in my life, at my job...  I'm convinced that the management team at my restaurant is trying to break us.

So go fucking watch it.

I really liked Hardy in Bronson but since then he seems to be overplaying a lot, it was the only thing that was annoying in revenant.

i saw the german version of this movie a decade ago. think it was called 'experiment' but i may be mistaken. really good if you don't mind subtitles [i don't mind].

I thought Hardy's performance was actually better than Dicaprio's in The Revenant. Actually made me go, wow, this guy is a real son of a bitch. Whole flick was great though! I never really considered myself very squeamish but a lot of the gore was so gnarly I almost had to look away. 9/10

been laid up the last few days so went on a binge... some great movies to recommend:



Electric Boogaloo - The Untold History of Cannon Films

Really entertaining doc about Cannon Films, makers of every C grade (or usually lower) film from the 1980's whose biggest hits were Breakin', Delta Force and the Death Wish sequels.  This is back when people made low budget trash films because they actually thought they were good, not trying to be hip or clever.



The Color of Noise

Documentary about Tom Hazlemeyer and his record label Amphetamine Reptile, one of my favorite labels back in the early 90's and home of some legendary weirdo bands like the Cows, Helmet, God Bullies, Melvins, etc...  Dope, Guns and Fucking in the streets!



Mannaja - A Man Called Blade

Great violent as fuck spaghetti western, not much different than other violent spaghetti westerns other than the use of hatchets.  Can't go wrong with these kind of movies.



Le Trou

How had I never heard of this movie?   Amazing Criterion film, a french prison break movie.  Slow moving and tense, shows all the steps taken in real time and real sound (also stars a man who actually broke out of a french prison so he had the inside info).  One of the best I have seen in awhile, reminds me of Riffiffi or Le Circle Rouge.  Unexpected ending, too.



Bone Tomahawk

Saving the best for last... fucking awesome movie and one of the best I've seen since The Kill List.  Starts out as a slow burning western/revenge tale, ends up being gut churningly violent horror like Saw...  How this one flew under the radar I have no idea but usually the best ones do.   Can't recommend this enough.  Here's the trailer:

Surprisingly consistent acting and storytelling on top of the "filmed in one shot" gimmick. The beginning dragged on a bit but luckily picked up enough speed after a while.

cool selection and trying to check those of my list one by one

so far only watched MANNAJA but it just wasn't my cup of tea i guess.
funny enough a friend of mine told me about bone tomahawk the night before i checked out this thread again, but made it sound like it was more of a trashy type of movie, but after reading a couple reviews including the one you gave i can't wait to check it out.

and i am still waiting for the right evening/ mood to watch THE REVENANT. trailer looks sooooo fucking heavy witch hardy dragging him into his grave and all that shit. guess i have to mentally prepare for that one.

last good movie i saw was NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN that i did not see since it must have come out- SOOOO STOKED!

Finally watched Black Mass. I thought it was great.  Then I watched the doco on him. Dude is the devil for real.

And Straight Outta Compton was straight warm bin juice. Being very old I was hyped to watch it seeings I grew up with the music. What a stinker.

Bone Tomahawk is not trashy at all, it's completely the opposite.  I know I threw a "Saw" comparison in there but it's not like that whatsoever, although it gets gory as fuck.  It's actually really dark and slow burning (a few reviews say it drags a little but I didn't think so), and it's not a spaghetti western revival film like Hateful 8.  Can't wait to hear your feedback on it, I've been telling everyone I know to check it out.

I don't think so, at least not streaming.  if you're interested in Amrep you should look for the blu-ray/dvd, has tons of extras on it and totally worth buying.
