Continued from Part 5:

I've retained Asgardian as the OP. Rest in peace, mate.

================

Starting this up for the mods.

Watched Judgment in Berlin, a simple tale of a hijacking from Poland to West Berlin, to escape the Communists.

Not bad, but nothing great either

Watched Black Widow with the better half the other night.

She found it more entertaining that myself, decent enough story for an Avengers spin-off flick, although a little rushed and muddled - E.G. (without giving away the main plot) sisters reunite after living separate lives for years, then also reunite with their parents, who are only their adopted parents from the Black Widow program, where young girls are trained to be special operatives for a evil global organisation, but flashbacks to the girls childhoods still doesn't reveal who their real parents actually were/are and also somehow older sister, Natasha (Scarlett Johansson), managed to leave the organisation and become an Avenger which is not explained..?

Wife is now on YouTube finding answers - unlikely I'll watch it again, 5/10.

Another Round, 2020 (Hulu) - Watched based off the cult following it has garnered here. I liked it. Mads Mikkelsen is charismatic as all get out and the last scene is a perfect ending. Everything else was pretty, pretty good. 7.5/10.

I, Tonya, 2017 (Netflix) - Sigh, I have a lot of thoughts.
That Tonya is made out to be a complete victim when there is evidence that she knew about the attack is pretty egregious.
The domestic violence is horrific but doesn't seem to be taken seriously enough when juxtaposed with the constant wisecracking and the most distracting soundtrack ever made that lends to a general 'rock n roll' tone that is out of place.
This could have been a brilliant insight on the struggles of poverty and people trapped in abusive relationships but doesn't quite get there (But hey what do I know).
There are two scenes which are top tier - When she puts makeup on before the 1994 Olympic routine and when her toxic mother visits her with a recorder to try to get a confession. Absolutely elite acting.
It's a fascinating watch but frustrating as hell. Preferred the "Losers" episode on Surya Bonaly about another ice skater from the same time.
The definition of a good, bad movie (or is it a bad, good movie? idk). 5.5/10.

Oh and Inglorious Basterds was ok. Like I, Tonya has some all time scenes (Bar scene and Strudel scene) and great acting. The final act with the theatre was both over-the-top and boring which is hard to pull off. 6/10. Can see why Tarantino fans would love it.

Re Basterds.

I loved the film upon first viewing.. but tbh ever since with every viewing I've found my love for it diminishing. It is ******* boring in some scenes, and that final scene was a bit of a letdown.

Boring! Which scenes did you find boring!?

******* most of Basterds was boring. Didn't get it maybe, but I get a lot of other Tarantino. I like it too.

I didn't go on IB even slightly.

Also he's basically the only director that would get applauded for rewriting WW2.

Settlers - 2021
Mankind's earliest settlers on the Martian frontier do what they must to survive the cosmic elements and each other.

The trailer presents this as a Sci-Fi thriller, it's not.

Look, I don't mind a slow burn developing plot, but this was fifteen minutes of a dreary and pointless story spread out over nearly two hours! So boring even the better half pulled up stumps after an hour and that's rare.

I kept watching purely out of curiosity waiting for something to happen, it didn't. Shame, because the actors and related performances are actually quite good.

Perhaps the biggest waste of time movie I've seen this year - 2/10 and that's generous...

Violation - 2020. Was marketed as a slow burn horror but is just a low budget revenge movie with some sexual violence thrown in.
Too many flashbacks, flashforwards and overly long dialogue scenes that made it extra confusing by adding nothing important to the story. 2/10 👎

Boss Level on netflix - kind of fun little flick that borrows heavily from computer games. Frank Grillo hamming it up and looks like he enjoyed himself (probably shouldn't overflex his muscles in every scene though). Certainly not a perfect film by any stretch of the imagination but a good way to waste an hour and a half. 6.5/10

I really enjoyed it. For what’s essentially a dumb actioner, it had a nice premise, didn’t try to over explain it, and I genuinely liked the main character’s arc.

Boss Level high in the watchlist now that I finished Suicide Squad.

That reminds me to review it when I get ten.
