The last movie i watched (sunday morning), was Taxi Teheran. Also a good interesting movie by director Jafar Panahi who is in exile in Iran, because he criticized the Iran government in his movies. It was the first movie of hem i saw (what maybe wasn't the right thing to do), but i also thought the movie would be different, but i liked it.

I recently watched Wes Anderson's 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' again. It's such a brilliant movie. The visual style is great, and every scene is perfectly shot and arranged. I suspect it's one of those movies people either love or hate. But I highly recommend giving it a try.

The last one I watched was Finding Dory. It's pretty much a love letter for fans of Finding Nemo, retaining many characteristics that made the original movie a success in the first place, with the addition of a few new characters.
As usual, you'll get your classic recipe of lighthearted humour & happy ending. I guess the sequel was made possible 13 years later partly because Ellen Degeneres pushed for it.

Another one I have watched is Victor Frankenstein (2015). If you're expecting the monster to be the main star of the show, you'll be disappointed as it only makes its appearance in the final 10 minutes of the movie.
Instead, the narrative explores the backstory of how Victor freed Igor from the circus and made him his lab assistant. His obsession with creating life from dead body parts draws the interest of various parties, which cumulates into a series of events leading up to the creation of the monster.
The plot is very fast-paced and action driven, thus some areas such as character development are being left to the sidelines. Overall, I found the movie to be a rather fresh & interesting take to the classic tale.

Amy Very good documentary about someone who had a lot of troubles, but also lot of talents. Another victim of capitalism!



(also watched crash a few days ago, didn't finish it, because it was very bad).

Watched part of Whiplash when flipping channels. I had watched it about a year ago.

 
Interestingly, husband hated J.K. Simmons and what he did to that kid drummer. Husband said "I'd tell him to **** off." I told husband "yeah, but you see, the whole point is J.K. Simmons gets the best product out of his students and keeps winning awards." J.K. Simmons didn't bother me at all. Well, he probably could have been arrested for slapping the kid and throwing the chair.

Scarface

Watched it for the first time, good movie, but a bit overrated and way too long.

Haven't been watching as many films lately. This was from the other night.



Charles mort ou vif (1969) Alain Tanner - 8/10

One of Tanner's earliest films, and as such it's a lot more rough and guerilla-styled. As usual, his work seems to exist in an interesting place where it’s like all the burnout of the New Wave after the failures of '68 etc where all that's left is the return to normal life with disaffection and dismay. Imagery is crisp and handsomely framed, very humble but enticing. Overall great, though maybe my least favorite Tanner so far. Shows how consistent he is though because even this film was some excellent stuff.

Napoleon Dynamite. The story of introverts in a world gone mad. I think I was Napoleon back in high school. I had the same wild red hair. But I couldn't dance near as well as he.

Mad Max: Fury Road

My expectations were somehow high, and it still blew them. 9 out of 10. Heck, I'm gonna give it a 9.5/10 just because of the guitar/drums car.

I saw the new Independence Day movie. I didn't really comprehend any of it, but at least I had enough candy to keep me awake through it.

The Neon Demon



Such a wonderful movie! The audiovisual part of course is amazing. From the first until the last scene, you're amazed by the beauty of this movie. Actress roless are played very good, with Elle Fanning as top performance. Slap me in the ass, babe! I think this will be one of my all-time favourites. 10/10
