    Not a movie but I started watching Escape from Dannemora or whatever it’s called. Very, very good. Arquette crushes it.

    Watched Sicario: Day of the Soldado the other day. I was not entirely sold on a Sicario sequel but hey I enjoyed this one. It was very well paced and intense. Brolin and Del Toro were both fantastic and they are just so fun to watch, especially Del Toro he just fits the role so well. The menacing score is still really good. Worthy follow up to a great movie, I also think it worked more for me because it was not just about the drug trade again it was a good idea to focus on something different.

    Brolin and del Toro are always fantastic. They should be in more movies imo.
    Was brolin the one who played thanos in infinity wars? Best villain in a super hero movie of all time.

    This was for me one of the most visually striking movies ive seen in a long time, it was so beautifully shot. I really liked each story, although the last one dragged a bit. Coen brothers bleakness/dark story telling mixed with humor really works here. Their stuff is very hit and miss for me, this was a hit for the most part.

    Agree about beautifully shot. Especially "gold canyon". (The one about the dude hunting for gold)
    Made me want to go camping so bad.

    Tom Waits in "Gold Canyon" was my favorite visually and strong story telling wise. i also thought it was placed at just the right spot within the film. "The Gal Who Got Ratlled", "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs", and "The Meal Ticket" were the other standouts for me.

    I absolutely loved Prisoners. (gyllenhall and the same director teamed up for both Prisoners and enemy)
    I remember liking enemy quite a bit. Gonna watch it again over the next 2 days.

    I Vitelloni(1953)-Yet another Fellini masterpiece. 11/10 Highly recommend. Stanley Kubrick made a list of his top 10 movies in 1963 and this was #1. It might be the most visually stunning of all the Fellini films.. His stuff is so good it's hard to differentiate though.

    The Maltese Falcon (1941) - This is simply one of the greatest films ever made. 12/10. A true Noir Classic. John Houston, Humphrey Bogart and Peter Lorre all at the top of their game.

    Mr Hulot's Holiday (1953) - This is a good old comedy. Guy goes to a beach resort and hilarity ensues. The few films I've seen of Jaques Tati have been good enough where I'm gonna continue to go thru them all. This is the first appearance of Mr. Hulot in his films.

    In a Lonely Place(1950) - 13/10 This **** is hilarious, the main character has a porno name Dix(on) Steele and there's such a funny line by his agent at one point;

    "He's Dix Steele. And if you want him, you've gotta take it all, the good with the bad."

    LMAO x1,000,000


    The claim that Humphrey Bogart is the greatest actor ever as far as I'm concerned is legitimate, i'm not even sure theres a close 2nd place tbh....

    As he said in this movie "There's no sacrifice too great for a chance at immortality."

    If I ever reach a point in life where this movie doesn;t crack me up, i'll be ready to be put out to pasture.


    of all the Noir films i've seen this one seems to capture the essence of the genre the best... and I love Film Noir, I actually believe it's the greatest American genre..

    The Fall of the House of Usher (1951) ** not to be confused with "House of Usher(1960)" starring Vincent Price.

    This **** is well done. They have this animated mashup of Poe stories on Nextflix called Extraordinary tales, which butchers this tale to the point of bastardization, this version is a much, much better adaption to screen.

    The Exterminating Angel(1962) - Enjoyed this quite a bit. I've just begun to go thru Luis Bunel's filmography, this is a macrbre comedy thats aged quite well. The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and L'Age D'or are the other 2 films of his i've seen and i'd recommend all 3 to anyone.

    Wes Anderson has said this is one of his favorites..
