just wasted an hour of my precious time watching HIGH NOON (1952)

rated 8/10 on imdb, but c'mon, has to be purely the old bastards getting nostalgic.

no unbiased person would rate this s**thole of a movie more than 2 or 3 out of 10 surely.

the synopsis was nice, but the execution of that in terms of script and acting was woeful.

on top of that, shoddy editing and cinematography.

what an over-hyped stinker *thumbs down*

German flick based loosely on a social experiment run in a high school in the 60s.
Watchable, but nothing groundbreaking or overly gripping.

5/10

Boooourns!

This is a favourite of mine. Its simple, and a case study of an internal minimalistic performance of traditional, repressed manhood. One of the classic westerns before they became a parody of themselves.

But each to their own.

the SYNOPSIS is fine...i get it...it's just a woefully made movie technically-speaking....acting bad, editing awful, script (spoken lines, plot points, etc) pretty bland. but i dont mean to tread on your toes about it.

Sorcerer (1977) 9/10
Friedkin hell, what a find. How's this for a movie. 4 men from different backgrounds (including Roy Scheider) commit crimes, hide in a South American village, an oil well explodes and the 4 men are assigned to transport the only available,poorly stored and highly unstable nitroglycerin 200 miles in two trucks through the rough terrain to the oil well. Well if that doesn't get your heart racing I don't know what will.

The only flaw would be the slow start but once the backstories are told it's pretty great. How they did the all practical bridge scene without killing someone I will never know. Amazing. William Friedkin's hidden gem.

because it's you.... :heart: ..... i will check this out asap too.
Think you would like it gg.
its a kind of a re-imagining of an experiment a US teacher conducted to prove that mindless facism could arise against again contrary to those who believe we are more educated now and it couldnt happen.
So they took the true story and embeliished and set it in germany to give it verismilitude.
Hope you enjoy it.

fascism definitely CAN and WILL and HAS arisen constantly since it supposedly ceased to, but it hasn't ever gone away in all that time. It's gurgling like hot lava.

So true. Let me know what you think when you get around to seeing it.
A bit of background.
Tho I disagree somewhat with this blokes take on the protaganist. Its the idea thats interesting.

Certainly sounds like it's based on Wages of Fear. One of the greatest films ever made. Not sure that it needed a remake.

Chael Sonnen: Moral Champion
It was on telly last night, I didn't watch it closely, but I've seen it before anyway.

The Girl Next Door.

I really like it. It's presented and marketed as a sex comedy American Pie ripoff sorta thing, but I reckon it's much more than that, more a coming of age story with a surprising amount of heart and spirit and catchy soundtrack. The 'Risky Business' of it's era I guess, maybe even better than Risky Business. The main problem it has I think, is that I am a shameless perv, and Elisha Cuthbert as the pornstar never shows anything more than a buttcrack, which leads to bit of a feeling that the people involved in making it weren't going 'all in' on the movie.

Parasite: The latest from Bong Joon-ho who brought us Okja and Snowpiercer, and easily my favourite of his I have seen yet. Didn't know much about it going in and it went places I did not expect. Solid 8.5/10

Teen Spirit (2019)

A shy teenager dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. OMG this movie was fantastic. Beautiful use of cinematography to build so much depth in these characters without too much dialogue. Elle Fanning plays the protagonist beautifully and her singing is a real treat. This almost soulless, oppressed teenager blossoms in the finale as finally she's released. Grochowska as her mentor is superb. I hope people get this film, because if you do, you will love it. 8/10

Maybe for Elisha the juice wasn’t worth the squeeze:)
