The last movie I’ve watched was Mortal Kombat: Scorpion’s Revenge.

The plot was somewhat similar the first Mortal Kombat film, except it’s more centered around Scorpion. And it was pretty fucking brutal, as is expected of the Mortal Kombat series. I think MK fans should see this.
Nobody special. Not important. Not significant. Just a nobody.

I went into detail about Justice League Dark: Apokolips War in the Superheroes thread so I will keep it short. Tremendous yet bittersweet method of ending the first continuity of the DC Comics Animated Universe indeed. The amount of carnage and casualties will have you on the edge of your seat. Plus, if I ever meet Hynden Walch (voice of Harley) at a con, I definitely need to ask her to do that "If you're happy and you know it, smack a head" tune that her character sings while going to town on the enemies. :D

Recently watched GoodFellas and that's still a Grade-A masterpiece.

TENET
My peer group was giving very mixed reviews ranging from "worst Nolan yet" to "oh my gaaash, amazeballs", which is super interesting 'cuz it was 12 people from very different areas of my personal and work life. I, for one fell in the "LOVE IT" category.

very slight spoilers about the nature of the movie:
SPOILER: Show
The music is awesome, I just adore the concept (I wanna see more) and I think the execution was mega-cool. The final scenes felt like an LSD-trip, due to the complete breakdown of causality (in an awesome way).

Watched Tenet and I'm Thinking of Ending Things. Both are great and the best films to come out of the year (which isn't saying much considering how little competition there is, but still).

Tenet I think is an amazing action film with a lot of exciting ideas, genuine thrills and originality/audacity. The acting was superb (Branagh and Debicki are obvious highlights, but Washington and Pattinson managed to give off so much so subtly and yet realistically), the action set-pieces were superb and explored the central concept awesomely and there's a puzzle-like quality to the film that is rewarding and endearing. Probably my favorite film of the year.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things is another film that rewards attention to detail and rewatches, has superb acting (Buckley, Collette and Plemons kill it, while Thewlis and Boyd are also great) and is original. It's also a lot darker, more surrealist and less commercial. Its themes are explored in such interesting and intriguing ways, too.

Just watched the 2015 Fantastic Four, Fantastic 4, or Fant4stic, or whatever. It wasn't as absolutely dreadful as I was expecting to be. I have no desire to ever see it again, it was kind of like a more realistic, or possibly joyless, remake of the same movie from ten years earlier, with 100% less Jessica Alba. Whatever happened to Jessica Alba? I miss her.

Hot take: I think it was better than Iron Man 3. Fight me.

What did you think of Homer Simpson as the stereotypical skeptic teacher at the beginning scenes? I didn't like him at all but that's how these cliches go, wonder what they say to themselves by the end of every one of these origin films where the team takes care of the big bad threat and is given the perks of being a superhero while they are still stuck at the same dead end job.

"Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil" Netflix

Wow, just wow the production values on this film are utterly amazing, almost all the effects are practical with GCI only used in minimal even on the demons with the higher demons it being using it on the hoofed feet and legs and tails but the top half are clearly costume with effects on the eyes and it's utterly stunning.

It really hems back to classic 80's horror movies where they had the medieval settings and it's sold story wise and based on a real German fable with some great twists and turns. I also loved that all the demons look like the weird paintings you get in medieval and renaissance art, like the time and effort that's gone in to this research wise is mind-blowing and puts a lot of current horror movies to shame.

SPOILER: Show
My only nitpick and its very miner was in the dub version the devil is clearly voiced by a person of colour but the rest of the cast are white voices and this is problematic with him also becoming a white voice at the end when god redeems him giving him true human form. (I need to watch this in sub just to see if it was also in the native language version as well or added by netflix's dub team)

The other problem is the wife who constantly hits her husband and child and it's played for joke and the other male characters laugh at it and call the guy henpecked and hiding under his wife's skirt when in reality his wife is clearly abusing both her son and husband but it just feels so out of touch with modern media.

Though I get there is an uncurrent that is similar to IT in that every one in the village is horrible, and they all pick on the motherless little girl who is being looked after by the priest's wife who is the only one who is kind to her. Even the godly priest is shitty towards her and saying she'd rot in hell and hits her. So it begs the question is everyone becoming evil due to evil demon locked in the cage as that was the feeling I got.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: As a long-time Hunter S. Thompson fan, I was both excited and nervous to watch this film. Thankfully, this was fucking wonderful, a brilliant visual counterpoint to the book that is overflowing with both humor, unsanity and the beginning of actual intriguing points about the end of the American Dream, the decline of the countercultures and the effects these two have had on America, all of which will be elaborated upon in the book.

Being John Malkovich: Another movie I loved despite not being all that impressed by literally every other film Spike Jonze has done. The whole film is kind of overflowing with a particularly wonderful sort of humor mixed with serious drama and quiet nihilism. It is basically a hyper-stylish examination of rather simple themes, but it was so well done it's kind of hard to scream at it.

Requiem For A Dream: An absolute masterpiece. The most harrowing, horrifying film I have ever seen-the ultimate endpoint of utter despair and everything going to absolute hell while people remember the better times of their lives...Astonishing. Also probably the best depiction of addiction I have ever seen.

The Devil All The Time: The cast was wonderful (Pattinson once again straight-out slaughtering it, as usual) and the story itself sound great, but there was something missing. I though it was on its way to becoming a great film for the first hour, but after that it became a lot slower without any kind of gradual flowing from one pace to the other and the narrator's comments tended to be off-putting, as if the film didn't trust the viewers to actually be able to understand connections without explicitly showing them. And there was like this curious lack of life in it-it just didn't seem to be made with passion. It's still good and worth a watch, but it does seem to be lacking aesthetically in something crucial.

The Green Mile: Really long, but also really good. Tom Hanks was awesome and the way I felt like I was watching an old yarn told to me in a voice full of passion was something that I liked. I do think it could have been useful for John Coffey's character to be expanded upon a bit earlier and there were other minor quibbles, but overall I thought it was great. Awesome little film. Controversial opinion: better than The Shawshank Redemption.

American Pie 2: While not as instant classic as the first one, this one still holds up enough on it's own and as a sequel than most other entries in the series. Lots of funny hijinks and mishaps in this to keep me entertained.
