I just watched The Sweet Hereafter for the first time. It's about a lawyer who wants the parents of children who were killed in a bus crash to receive compensation for their loss.

 I don't know if anyone else here has seen it. It was unnerving, it ended abruptly, but it was still worth the watch. It's one of the most highly praised Canadian films of all time, won the Cannes Grand Prix in '97.

I don't know, something about it was off to me, felt like a patchwork quilt of scenes - maybe because it's the first Atom Egoyan film I've seen, and he's got his own style - but it was still affecting and memorable. It could be because the characters are so well-crafted and portrayed, and I could fully envision them being in a small town in British Columbia.

The music was excellent as well. Ian Holm gave a great performance.

Yes, for sure.

I always get this movie mixed up with Simon Birch which is also about a bus crashing into a lake but additionally features a scene with someone's mom getting domed by a home run and it killing her. What a fucking insane movie

Oh the Jim Carrey movie, one of his first forays into serious acting. Havenít seen it but remember the previews

I'm pretty sure i haven't seen the whole thing but i remember my mom watching it and the sequence where the mom gets killed by the dinger and the bus crash both became seared into my brain

Another Round (Druk)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Another_Round_(film)

The Dead Dont Die

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dead_Don%27t_Die_(2019_film)

I do not enjoy movies normally but loved both of these, especially Another Round.

I just saw another Danish flick called Riders Of Justice, also with Mads Mikkelsen that was pretty damn good.

Wasn't feeling Many Saints, it was pretty average and if it didn't have the Soprano's connection would be totally forgotten.

Also watched Pig, Monos, Rams and CODA that I liked.

Riders of Justice was fantastic and totally not what I expected. I watched another Mads Mikkelsen film shortly afterwards call The Hunt that was phenomenal- he's probably my favourite actor.

I watched The Green Knight on the weekend and it blew my little socks off. Properly, properly intriguing.

Riders of Justice was great.

Just watched the Woodstock 99 documentary that really took me back to that moment in time before people had cell phones (and the clothes and music!!). Really had no idea how wretched that festival was.

Also rewatched The International with Clive Owen on Prime, but that probably belongs in the streaming/DVD thread. Whatevs, a real gem and worth rewatching.

Danger Diabolik (1968)
It's dumb but fun. It's Italian, dated and low budget but not a movie I laugh at because it's so bad. actually a visual style I'm really into and sort of self aware of what it is but not going for cheap ironic laughs.(probably pre dates that sort of humour).
If you like shows like the 60s batman and ghostbusters or the avengers(the UK series not marvel) it's worth checking out

Love this movieÖ Diabolik was a 60s Italian comic book character.  Campy and awesome, and Marisa Mell is hot as fuck.

http://youtu.be/0w7BewJIpx0

Watched the Ingmar Bergman movie ďThe Virgin SpringĒ, which is a pretty heavy movie for 1960.  Itís also the original version of the story of Last House of the LeftÖ not nearly as graphic but just as dark and disturbing.  A young Max Von Sadow who seems to be in 90% of all the movies I watch these days.

Man, this looks good and I've never heard of it. I'm going to try and watch it this weekend.  I love gritty docs from that era.

Here is the follow-up 30 years later with one of the kids from the documentary. I have never seen these on You Tube before and have only watched in segments in the past.

Hell yeah! Thanks for pointing these out. I was reading on IMDB that one of them became a victim of the Green River killer who was active around this time.

Might be my favorite John Carpenter film barely edging out HalloweenÖ the soundtrack, the ambiance, the insane special effects.

I'd seen a lot of the special effects and scared from the thing because it's so iconic and important in pop culture but i was totally blown away with the pacing, the soundtrack, Kurt Russell in general, Wilford without his mustache making gross faces when he's dissecting the creature. It's flawless. Same thing with nightmare. I'd seen the scene with the girl on the ceiling and Johnny depp getting absorbed by the bed, but the little synth stings when Freddy pops up, it was campy in the best way

Yeah the first Nightmare did it right, the scene that still stands out to me is Nancy's friend leading her down to the school boiler room in her bloody body bag.  And for some reason that scene at the very end when Nancy's mom gets sucked through that tiny door window stuck with me, haha.

As I said, I've seen The Thing more times than I can count (at least 10x a year, that's how much I love that movie), the blood test scene still gets me everytime.

Saw the new Bond. A proper send off to Daniel Craig, pretty solid ass flick. Some of the sequences were really cool, lot of dope gadgetry, cinematography was on point. Rami Malek was wasted though, his character was meh at best, pretty thin.

Watched Bone Tomahawk the other night. The pacing, soundtrack, and cinematography are definitely what makes it. When it's brutal, it's fucking brutal, but it's not horror movie brutal where it's just a gore fest. You guys are making me want to watch Nightmare and The Thing again. It's been so long I can barely remember them.

I watched this one last nite, i wish someone competant could re-do this movie to be gnarlier. Tangerine Dream does the soundtrack, so it sounds like GTA 5's OST. Can't think of another movie where Heather Locklear gets smoked but goddamn she was not ugly in it.

I also found out these dudes are not the same guy

Watched this last night and it's fucking amazing. It's beautifully shot in an unconventional way with some crazy 50's set designs. It was also super unnerving to me in a good way. I didn't know anything about the movie going into it (except for the trailer) and that made it even better. Would highly recommend!

Is Tenet any good?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZGcmvrTX9M

Visually yeah.
It's an interesting idea like inception done decently enough. But like inception there's people who insist it's the smartest thing ever while other people say it's dumb and doesn't make sense.

I thought it was pretty good but probably won't watch it again for at least a couple years if at all.

This past week or so Iíve watched

-Narc
-Training Day
-John Wick

And plan on watching Collateral and the original Assault on Precinct 13 before the week is out.

Can wholeheartedly recommend them all - bar Collateral which Iím not actually sure Iíve seen before.

Narc was written + directed by the same guy that did Smokiní Aces - imho an underrated film.
