Eyeing in on the to my knowledge latest Shane Meadows production, mini-series The Virtues starring Stephen Graham. Have anyone here seen it?

Checked De Sicca's 1966 Peter Sellers romp After the fox yesterday, it was a smurk blast all the way through. Watched a little of Schizoid anno 1980 a couple of days ago, but had to abort due daily matters. Was good, will finish later on. Kinski does a great shrink in this one. Cannot recall seing this since the age of Moses, had totally forgotten the plot - eventhough it is fairly transparent (anyone seen this series?). Funny thing which I did not understand until now, dragmaster RuPaul had a part there. Laughed out loud when I realized it. Bizarre. Also wolfing mondo films from the early 1960s through to the '90s. Gore, gore, gore. To commemorate Keith I have been going through all our postings here and writing down films I want to watch - either things I did not make or features I need to revisit. My mind is tonnage with things to do at the moment, so a bit scattered, but I do belive it was our usual suspect who talked about Schizoid some time back in connection with a re-issue?      

Next up is re-visit of Irreversible by Noé, This year's Daniel isn't real, Amici Miei aka My friends - a 1975 comedy by Mario Monicelli. Looking forward to see the 20-19 recut of the first said film title. Have anyone here had the chance yet?

I finished Watchmen the other night - I haven’t been following critical reception on the twitter but personally I really enjoyed the show a lot. I really liked enjoyed each episode and thought the last one wrapped everything up really well. I hope HBO doesn’t green light a sequel immediately, like give that shit 5-10 years. Overall it was great.

I’m watching this show called Easy on Netflix. It’s okay. Some of the people on the show are really fucking annoying. Especially the fat dude in the open marriage.

I finally saw Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It’d been on my list forever. It was pretty good. Fucking bloated. Like this movie did not need to be three friggin’ hours. But I enjoyed it! This movie could have cut half an hour and it would have been just fine.

Nice, I'll give this a go soon. I hope there is a final installment of This Is England at some point. There have been hints of a final movie but nothing ever gets pinned down.

It's been interesting to hear peoples opinions on this one. I've been watching Tarantino films since I was a kid under my parents dubious supervision. Some of them I love, some I don't like at all and I really didn't know what to expect with this one. but I really enjoyed everything about Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood to my own surprise! Probably as much as Pulp Fiction. I think probably because I could actually empathize with characters, especially DiCaprio's alcoholic, emotionally-stunted egomaniac. I could identify with that a lot. The that fact that it was long just meant more of something I was already enjoying. A lot like Blade Runner 2049 or The Revenant

Yeah pretty much the same for me. I don't think I would have liked as much if it was shorter. Enjoyed almost every minute. I might have said it in my initial review but the only detractor for me was Al Pacino.

I just re-watched Inglorius Basterds and that one I love every single second of it same with Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, From Dusk till Dawn, probably Death Proof as well. I could probably go without seeing Django again. I also apparently bypassed The Hateful Eight although I’d like to see it. Some make a mark and some don’t. I definitely enjoyed it a lot. I would probably re-watch it in a few years and see what I think.

I loved The Hateful Eight when I saw it in theatres but who knows what a rewatch will reveal. I need to rewatch his entire oeuvre, really.

I think the thing about OUATiH is that the ranch/Manson Girls/Cielo Drive were so different than I had imagined them - and that’s not to say it was inaccurate - but I’ve read a ton about Manson and I found it didn’t match up with what I had going on in my brain. And I found that very disorienting. I think if I went back and did a re-watch I would take more from it.

I saw the Hateful Eight in theaters and thought it was very good. But when i rewatched it at home last year I actually liked it more because I could absorb more details since i wasnt worrying about unraveling the main plot.

The Lighthouse - pretty to watch, amazing acting by all (two), camera, effects, but similar to The Witch - highly aestheticized but almost nothing happened story wise (why?) Also don't really care if filmmakers make it harder for themselves by using older methods if the outcome is still meh. All the greek myth Prometheus shit is being post-hoc pulled out of ass to give the movie more credit. It was praised to high hell by critics, also for being fucked up and extremely psychotic and "crazy" (which it was not) therefore I expected a lot and was disappointed. Might be an unpopular opinion but that's okay. 7/10

Still need to watch Parasite, the Lars von Trier Kingdom series and Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage (TV version)

Watched Korine’s ”Beach Bum”. First film of his with very little redeeming values to outweight his usual silliness. Matthew McConaghey wants to be Woody Harrelson, fails. Why do this type of characters in movies always have to wear stupid, ugly sunglasses to show how outrageous and inconventional they are?

It looks interesting.  I think that I might rent it when it comes out on dvd.

I am currently looking forward to the new Grudge film.  I liked the others a lot, so hopefully the new installment will not disappoint.
