I thought it was a great post-credits scene. I was having fun with the movie and was in a good mood. Thank god they fixed that!!!
Just wait until you see the next couple! She’s shot right up to the top of my least favorite characters of the year list. :(
He’s kind of right. My main takeaway from the movie’s portrayal of him was the scene where he screams at the actress and is completely unreasonable and horrible to her when she’s in a very compromising situation. The other stuff that guy pointed out is also very clear and negative. If Tommy’s even worse in the book,…
I’m only watching if Lily Rabe’s witch is the main character. I was so pissed at their waste of that character.
It could use some more Stevie Nicks, too!
I saw the “short” one (still over two hours) and loved it. I’ve heard the extended version is very slightly preferable but that the theatrical one is more than fine. It wasn’t hacked down to appease the censors or anything of the sort.
Oh shit. I LOVE Sally Hawkins (Happy Go-Lucky is my favorite movie some days). I will have to check that out.
Yeah, they’re very different kinds of movies, I just saw them compared a lot in reviews of The Handmaiden, and despite liking that movie quite a bit (and it being focused more on character than plot than I think this movie was) I ended up finding this one far more emotionally involving from a character standpoint.…
I just watched The Handmaiden this weekend. It works much, MUCH better as an emotionally involving romance than Blue is the Warmest Colour, which it seems fair to compare it to since they were long, arty lesbian romances with incredibly explicit sex that came out at about the same time. The leads are so great!!
I couldn’t believe I’d been looking at Hanzee for so long without noticing!
Ha, that’s a pretty good analogy. The fact he felt like it was such an incredibly important statement that he had to release his own english remake makes him all the more of an unbearable scold.
As opposed to those scary pixels and sound effects when you play a movie on a digital film delivery device?
Yeah, the first one is your garden variety disgusting almost to the point of comedy horror movie, it just got a lot more publicity than normal so everyone knows the gimmick. The second is exactly what you said - EDGELORD. There are some wonderful details in there with barbed-wire anal rape and baby heads that should…
That’s a good one for this list. Having seen it, I’d suggest avoiding it cause it’s sneering and really obnoxious. I can’t think of a movie that comes off as more smug. It wants to have its cake and eat it too. It’s not shocking, it’s infuriating.
No. The Reef is a low budget movie with a group of people whose ship wrecks and they have a really long swim while a shark is circling them and picks them off one at a time. It legitimately freaked me out cause it tapped into nightmares I’ve had. It might still be on Netflix? I recommend it.
History suggests that automatic updates is the OPPOSITE of a useful feature when it comes to ios.
I think that my problem with proclamations like this in regards to the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley is that it sounds so contrarian and hateful, as they’re somewhat respected actors. I see it a LOT about Nicole Kidman, too. It never has any explanation, and that kind of statement never seems to get…
Haha, that’s a great list.
Hmm, I never would have considered Master and Commander a “chaos on the open seas” movie, but I can see that! I haven’t heard of White Squall and have only seen pieces of Dead Calm. I guess I should rectify that, I know Dead Calm has quite a following. I love Billy Zane in villain mode, so much.
What other movies do you classify in that genre, and why do you hate it? I’m not incredulous, just curious. All is Lost, The Perfect Storm, of course. Life of Pi?? The Reef? Open Water? I can’t think of any that are particularly GOOD, so I’m wondering if that’s your problem!
