Well quite. One origin story (unless you'd like to count the Death Star Plans origin story) in 13 films and a host of associated series is hardly self-indulgent.


I’d be tempted to bundle in the entire prequel trilogy as well, tbh.

I’m still cool with them doing more, like a cool Obi-Wan movie, but do also try new things, else we’ll run that well of nostalgia dry.

You could count the three films for Vader's origin story.

I'm hoping for an Aaron Sorkin-style political drama set within the corridors of the Imperial Palace.

I'd watch Days of Thunder if part-way through the film, it transitioned into the opening scene of The Final Destination

I hate everything Will Ferral has done except Anchorman. Unless someone can remind me of something else he was in that was better than just alright.

Quick shout out for 'GOOD TIME' which has just appeared on Netflix and I watched last night.

I'm still recovering from the flu so you get a lazy review.

It has that chap out of Twilight in it who is very good actor.

Quote:
'Good Time' is a prime example of what the cynical or the uninterested might dismiss as “feel-bad cinema” — low budget, kitchen-sink realism about unpleasant people in worse situations. It also happens to be one of the most uncompromising movies I’ve seen all year: vibrant and desperate and alive, it’s a work hanging on by its fingernails. If you lament the loss of that gutter ferocity with which filmmakers like Martin Scorsese once walked the Earth, brother, here’s your cinematic B-12 shot.

Yeah I mentioned this when it first came on Netflix. Amazing film. Reminded me of After Hours more than anything, just a crazy trip through the night that doesn't let up for a moment.

Yeah that was pretty good.

Will Ferrell has been following the Adam Sandler approach to movies: Do a decent one or two and then live on the reputation of those while you churn out garbage and dogshit doing the same old schtick time and time again while increasingly becoming a caricature of that one good thing you did.

Oh sorry I missed that, I did do a search for 'good time' before posting to see if there was a previous comment about it but that's not a great search term and basically brought back everything.

Films wot I watched:

Suburbicon: The Coen brothers/George Cloony mashup. It’s alright but surprisingly predictable. Normally, with these kinds of films, it’s the performances that keep you watching but there’s nothing here that elevates it above The Coen brothers previous films. It’s very middle of the road but entirely watchable.

Coco: The new Pixar one which is brilliant. The Day of the Dead stylings are fabulous, the characters are full of charm and wit and I loved the Mexicana music and slightly sinister story. This deserves to be watched. Mind you it got me thinking, I watch some anime stuff in my time and I’m surprised that the big studios stateside refuse to take a stab at something more mature.

Roman J. Israel, Esq: Denzil Washington’s oscar nod is ... bland. Denzil is ‘good,’ I suppose, insofar as he is a top-tier actor but his character is unlikeable. I wanted Denzil to give this emotional heart breaking performance but instead he’s this Sheldon Cooper-esq lawyer that I couldn’t warm to. We don’t actually get to see much ‘actoring’ as the plot pushes Denzil along from one contrivance to the next. When the big twist comes (which we see from a fucking county mile away as the director doesn’t like subtly) I wasn’t emotionally invested at all. I just didn’t care. Nah, it ain’t really worth your time.

I rewatched RAMBO FIRST BLOOD last night for the millionth time, it's such a fantastic film, and in many regards highlights why modern films are so shit and old films are so good. (Yes I appreciate that's a massive generalisation but it was the thought that crossed my mind as the opening scenes played out.)

Within 5 minutes it establishes character and context, we immediately sympathise with our protagonist and understand that the antagonist is not evil, but nonetheless is at odds with the goals of Rambo.

The opening escape and chase scene is a timeless action setpiece, and leads into a taut, beautifully paced and filmed mid-section, until Rambo returns to destroy the town that hurt him, before finally breaking down, and Stallone shows to my mind that he has some proper acting chops.

I've probably watched this film 20-25 times or more over the years, and can quite happily recite the entire script.

Do not confuse First Blood with the second and third films, which are awful. First Blood however remains a genuine classic.

930/1000

I'm more getting at when people think of Rambo they perhaps think of First Blood Part Two as 'The Rambo Film', and think of Rambo films in general as being ridiculous and bombastic action films where Rambo destroys the world.

Whereas First Blood is altogether a more quiet and considered affair. Well, until Rambo destroys a small chunk of the world, but we have established MOTIVATION by this point.

EDIT - Oh and the 2008 Rambo film is amazeballs of course, but for very different reasons.

In the film it’s title is just First Blood but I think some territories the poster was Rambo First Blood and some just Rambo (EDIT and some First Blood. Natch). I might be wrong, mind.
