Symbol (2009): I'm not much of an arthouse aficionado, so the best way I can describe this film is Cube meets Rubber.

I laughed so hard a few times during Symbol that I was in pain.

Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear - I saw this without seeing the first one since it wasn't available and I was more into this one because of Kane Kosugi. The fight scenes were standard stuff with dozens of slow motion shots poured in but it wasn't boring to the point of falling asleep. Just that the protagonist seemed so standard with a Hugh Jackman-like growl in his voice.

Zulu

2 hours of Britain's finest gentlemen slaughtering down hordes of African savage tribal warriors in bright red snazzy uniforms. And a young Michael Caine being posh as fuck.

One thing is for sure, this movie is never going to get a remake.

Jacob's Ladder

Terrific film, quite moving and yet utterly disturbing. Never has a non-horror film frightened me so much; the ending was very well done too.

I actually love this movie. It's unintentionally funny as he'll and I constantly laughed during the while movie . But I'd say, that the flower-shop scene is the best scene ever made

Just got back from seeing The Wolf of Wall Street. So fucking awesome. Can't fault anyone's performance and hardly felt like a 3 hour+ film at all.
Great entertainment all-round.


Gamera 3: Revenge of Irys [AKA Gamera 3: Incomplete Struggle] (1999):

Image
Watched this late last Saturday night capping off my second rewatch of this trilogy within the last 12 months or so, prompted by having received the BDs for Christmas (a substantial step up from the oddly sourced DVD copies I hard prior).

Love this movie so much. Yeah - The action and tokusatsu itself isn't as awesome and awe-inducing as it is in Attack of Legion, but the pacing and tone is pitch perfect. Great locales, settings, brilliant human drama in a daikaiju production and this is easily the best iteration of Gamera himself. He just looks so dark, scary and battle-hardened from his past few years of constant war with the Gyaos.

The implied ending is also the coolest thing ever but leaves me a little teary.

:salute:

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa

Full of laughs. Lots of naughty stuff. Stupid stunts

If you liked Jackass or Wildboyz check it out.
a solid 4/5 film.

Fritz Lang's The Big Heat

One of the earliest and greatest examples of a cop seeking vengeance against those who have harmed his family. All those police procedural tropes that are ubiquitous these days are so much more interesting when used here.

Is Fritz Lang's later Hollywood stuff generally any good?

I liked Metropolis and M but wasn't sure about whether his stuff he made after coming to America was worth taking the effort to find.

Pacific Rim
By far my favorite live action film of all time. I mean what's not to love especially when it comes to Striker pure genus.

All the Kaiju were pure badass in design especially Mutavore(category IV that breaks the Sidney wall), knifehead, and Slattern, oh and otachi, Trespasser (golden gate bridge) and Hardship (beginning prologue in Seattle)

And those fights just genius.

9.9/10 only because hunnam was a little dull.

Boiling Point [AKA 3-4X10月] (1990):

Image
Quaint little film with a bizarre presentation but Kitano's signature black humour and distinct directing style shine through right 'til the end. Also aided by some really stand-out scenes (like the above posted image). Overall; I probably enjoyed Kitano's Violent Cop more, but Boiling Point has a better "journey", I think.

Lee Chang-dong's Poetry
Lee is another contemporary Korean director I could heap piles of praise upon. This might be my favorite film of his yet, which is quite the statement considering how much I also adored Secret Sunshine. I can think of few films that manage to be simultaneously dark and uplifting like this one.

This. Up there with Scorsese's best if you ask me. Definitely his best work with Leo (The Aviator being a close second).

I atoned for my sin of not watching this classic. Now I'm in love with this movie. :tongue:

Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha: It is rare to come across a film that I can appreciate and enjoy for its marvellous direction and execution, but can't get over how much I hate the protagonist. It's not like she is even badly written in Frances Ha, but it really made me more critical of the film. I loved the film's relentless pacing and ambitious/crazy editing - they were clearly made to mimic the protagonist's personality and how she sees the world (and it worked very well like that). My beef with the film is how the naive ending refuses to acknowledge the downsides of the bizarre protagonist and instead remains in the fantasy world she has created for herself. The film seemed to be building towards a different sort of ending and now all the tricks the film pulled seem more like the director being hip for the sake of being hip. The combination of chaotic dialogue and second-hand embarrassment can be quite overwhelming at times, but I guess the film is a fairly good portrayal of carefree and socially inept wannabe artists.
