Last Movie You Watched?

The Assistant. New movie with Julia Garner, assistant to an unseen and unnamed but very "present" boss based on obviously on Harvey Weinstein. Very well done movie but definitely a "procedural", i.e., this is what that job is actually like, being an assistant to a bigshot movie producer. Recommended.

"The Lovebirds" with Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. Silly, fun movie. I enjoyed it.

Troma's WAR on Shudder. It's a rough hewn satire on the 'America, fuck yeah!' mentality of the 80's. I LOL'd at the AID's jokes but my partner did not and we had to have a discussion about transgressive comedy. I wouldn't recommend the movie unless that kind of humor works for you.

Parasite. Liked it a lot though it didn't strike me as a Best Picture Award Winner.

But I didn't see all the nominees so my opinion is worthless, I guess.

r11: I saw Parasite last year. I think it was vastly overpraised and am not sure why it won. It's a grim movie that's very schematic--and predictable. Everybody (critics) thought it was cool to jump on that bandwagon--first South Korean movie, the director having great festival circuit and art house reputation from previous films. I thought his earlier film called "Mother" or the Mother was better.

I don’t think Our Jean lived as opulent a lifestyle as was shown. And Kristen Stewart has a kind of jaded, snakey characteristic which doesn’t match the sunshiny, wholesome flavor the film’s subject gave off. The film also rushes through her breakdown, whiteout exploring it much.

I like "Polyester" too, although it lacks the manic edge of "Female Trouble". The title song, wistfully sung by Tab Hunter, makes me a little sad now that I'm having to live in the suburbs again after decades away. "Polyester, this is your life"...

I watched "The Invisible Guest" on Netflix, a tricky and far-fetched Spanish thriller that owes a lot to "The Usual Suspects".

Watched Hustlers last night because Showtime is free for us here this month. It wasn't that good - and Jennifer Lopez was just being Jenny from the Block in her Bronx way. Her being a dancer/stripper from the Bronx isn't exactly a huge stretch.

It was a very interesting (and true) story - the screenplay was almost verbatim from the original article.

But why JLo was praised and won all of these film festival awards was head-scratching. It's like when Sarah Palin would get kudos for giving an intelligible speech because it wasn't as bad as we expected.

^^ Tony Walton, its production/costume designer who primarily does theater, is a genius. The look of that film is amazing.

I read a very long interview with him in a book once - maybe it was on costume design? It was fascinatinng - just interesting technical stuff, like how one of the fabrics for Jacqueline Bisset’s dresses was taking forever to arrive, and finally they had to create their own by using some “potato stamp” method in an existing cloth.

I wish I could remember which book that was!

Our Tony is indeed the best of the best, and we are in awe of his conceptions, and attention to detail. I'm attaching an interview with him, which is at least something, even though I wish his approaches and techniques were better documented. One thing he says at the end is a way to come up with a look for a show is to wittle its qualities down... to first elimanate what wouldn't be in accord with the inherent spirit of the show.

[quote]"I think in a way it's almost a sort negativity; see what 'noes' you can find. You start out listening to the music, or absorbing it in what ever way you can - and say to yourself, 'Well, this is, or whatever. This is not "prickly." This is somehow...soft. And smooth.' Try to find the things it isn't, and wittle it down to what's left."

I watched the first half of "The Trip to Greece," the 4th and last in the "Trip" series with Steve Coogan and Rob Bryden. The formula has gotten old and they were much nastier to each other (or Bryden was nastier to Coogan, who seemed as if he was just going through the motions so he could pick up his check). I loved the first one, and maybe the second (Trip to Italy) but this was so blah that I stopped watching and don't want to pay again to watch the rest (rented on Amazon). Greece was pretty and the food looked good. Really don't recommend but do at least see the first one (The Trip--they go to the Lake Country of England) if you haven't. I'm sure it's free somewhere on Amazon or Netflix. The food is always fabulous to look at, and they are both very good at imitating famous voices. When you first hear Bryden's "small man in a box" routine, it's pretty hysterical--I guess he was already well known in the UK for this strange voice (it's impossible to figure out how he does it).

I bowed out after 30 minutes, and fast forwarded to the end. I'll go back to watch eventually, because I want to find the scene where Bryden says he went too far in insulting Coogan.

Question: Much of the series is you and Steve ribbing one another. Obviously you’re friends in real life, but from the very start, it’s an awkward on-screen relationship. Did the insults ever cross a line or get too personal?

Bryden: ...There was a moment in the Greece series, at the restaurant at Perea at an indoor restaurant near some boats. It’s where we talk about Marathon Man and Steve having a heart attack. I said something to him that he wasn’t happy with, and I think we had to stop for a little bit. But then it’s forgotten about.

Last movie I watched was "Capone". Horrible film and Tom Hardy is becoming a caricature of himself.

"The V.I.Ps" from 1963.

Ensemble cast of actors play characters at London's airport awaiting their flights delayed by fog. Main stars are Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Also Louis Jourdan, Orson Welles, Elsa Martinelli, Rod Taylor, Maggie Smith, Linda Christian and the superbly funny performance by Margaret Rutherford which was to win her the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Screenplay by Terence Rattigan. Supposedly based on the real life events when Vivien Leigh planned to leave husband Laurence Olivier for actor Peter Finch. The pair's plane was delayed by fog, allowing Olivier to stop them at the airport.

One of those films cutting back and forth among multiple characters and their stories. Rutherford is a delight in each of her scenes and is a please to watch.

Her Oscar win was very popular as you can tell by the applause given especially for her when the nominees are announced.. Peter Ustinov accepted the Oscar for Rutherford.

R78, your memory is good. The movie is pretty bad.

But Margaret Rutherford shines.

And with each succeeding appearance of her character in the movie, as she deals with the airport, plane, stewardess, seatbelt, delays, hotel, etc., are gently and amusingly hilarious. I'd love to link to some of the scenes but don't want to spoil it for anyone who might want to watch it. And each of her reactions to each encounter and delay build and build on her character til the final delight.

I did like Maggie Smith saving the day for Aussie Rod Taylor too.

50 Shades of Grey, for the second time. There's something super fascinating about the whole thing, and particularly about Christian Grey. I've actually listened to the audiobook and then the Grey-version as well, which is basically the same book written from Christian's perspective. The film is well-made and I just basically enjoy watching it.

The sexiest thing about the whole thing is imagining Christian getting it on with his bodyguard Taylor. I've even had a wank or two over them.

The sequels are boring, both the novels and the movies. I've been unable to finish the last ones in the trilogy. I don't really give a shit about Ana, although I like her in the film. It's all about Christian for me, since he's sort of my spirit animal, messed up in very familiar ways.

Sadly, he was killed in a motorcycle at only 42 in 1949. He was married to an actress, Barbara Pepper, who later got fat and was a good friends with Lucille Ball. Ann Sheridan died at 51 of cancer.

Delving into Amazon Prime, I clicked on BY LOVE POSSESSED (1966). I lasted about 20 minutes.

Lana Turner being her usual glazed, monotone self. Bland leading men (Jason Robards, Jr. and Efram Zimbalist, Jr.) (which makes for weird opening credits, like it's a nursery school pageant.) [italic] And so much tan and brown[/italic] in the production design it looked like it was shot in sepia tone.

In one scene Barbara Bel Geddes polishes one spot on an apple for a long time before biting into it. Which made me wonder why this convention exists. Has she been handed an unwashed apple? And why do movie characters polish where they're taking the first bite, then continue to eat the whole thing? Is this a good luck gesture? And I also thought, I've never seen anyone do this in real life.

KNIVES OUT, that Agatha Christie-style pastiche, which turned out to be more laborious to watch than I expected. The biggest problem is that the young nurse character gets the most screen time and she's the least interesting character. All that earnestness only goes so far. And Daniel Craig's Deep South Poirot was irritating.

Also watched a clunky 30's Katharine Hepburn film called QUALITY STREET, based on a J.M.Barrie play from 1901 (and it felt that old too). Very silly and not credible romantic farce set in 1805, with a generally dull Franchot Tone looking ill at east. KH is her usual fluttery self. The film was a flop and contributed to her status as Box Office Poison before THE PHILADELPHIA STORY salvaged her career.

There's a silent version of QUALITY STREET with Marion Davies that supposed to be better but I can't imagine watching this dumb plot again.

Mike’s Murder is depressing but compelling. The only thing I remember distinctly about it, though, was the conversation in the elevator with the older man, who was one of Mike’s patrons (?), where he tells Debra Winger that Mike had done escort work, and then adds “but that wasn’t his true bent, as you well know.” I haven’t seen the movie in probably 30 years.

Eighteen year-old Jules, an opera buff and post office worker, makes a pirate tape of the celebrated diva Cynthia Hawkins who flatly refuses to be recorded.

Some dangerous people are after one tape, and some other dangerous people are after the other.

Great flick, r150. I love the aria she sings, too. Gorgeous piece of music.

And another vote for the production design of One From The Heart. The film itself, I could take or leave. I’ve never been able to invest myself in their love affair. I get that Coppola wanted to create a grubby little, everyday romance set against this wildly artificial and oversized world, but ultimately, I think the experiment failed. But still, the look of it is truly something to see. Proto-Baz Lurhman, only with a brain in its head.

I saw Murder on the Orient Express (1974), too. I knew the ending so it wasn't a surprise. A wonderful ensemble cast, everyone was perfect. Jacqueline Bisset is exactly what you imagine her character to be, as well as Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery and Anthony Perkins. All of them really.

Clothes and sets were exquisite and the murder itself so cathartic. Definitely a must see.

The VIPs gets a lot of hate - but if you eliminate the Liz/Burton (originally written as a riff on Onassis and Maria Callas), the rest of the cast is wonderful. Burton and Taylor were terrible. He was as stiff and indifferent when he started as when he got her back. She was study in look beautiful while exceedingly plump. Givenchy helped her a lot there with at fur lined hood.

Rollover (1981) with Jane Fonda and Kris Kristofferson. A compelling story idea that was poorly executed with leaden pacing and dull visuals. Kristofferson is wildly miscast (who ever thought he would make a convincing financier?) and Jane just clenches her jaw the entire movie with Nancy Dussault-esque hair.

The Muse (1998) with Albert Brooks and Sharon Stone. I thought this movie was hilarious 20 years ago but it didn't elicit many guffaws this time; perhaps the Hollywood references are just too dated now. Still a brilliant piece of casting to have Stone play an escaped mental patient, and I can't imagine how many takes Andie MacDowell needed to try and minimize her accent.

It was interesting, but depressing AF.

And he told his young son that when he was his age, he could barely cum. So when he alcoholic father passed out, he beat him off and "he came sheets of sperm." Ugh.
