Dug up a couple of old Antipodean movies to watch last night, and enjoyed them both.

 

The first was a Kiwi offering called "The Quiet Earth" and it was okay, and the good thing about it was that I recognised a lot of places in and around Auckland, which brought back memories! Bruno Lawrence starred in it, as he did in quite a few Kiwi films, and I've always enjoyed his stuff.

 

The second was an Australian offering called, "Burke and Wills" and this had a lot more going for it with regards to subplots than did my previous movie, and it was enjoyable because of this. 

 

I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it, or haven't seen it for a long time, but what stuck out for me this time (as I think I watched it many, many years ago) was the suffering endured by the Burke and Wills expedition juxtaposed against the lifestyle of the aborigines – – – all around was sustenance, but you had to know how to take advantage of it! Enough said.

 

Also dug up the film "Savages" and found that to be very enjoyable especially as I hadn't seen it before.

Art Zone - The Coen Brothers-----BBC2

 

TV documentary. A profile of film-makers Joel and Ethan Coen who began their career with little money but ended up successfully taking on the Hollywood establishment. Including many guests featured in their films.

 

This is quite dated so prob hard to get---its just that Chaos is doing a run of Doco's on people like Stanley Kubrick, Coen's etc from their Art Zone library

Recently re-watched some older John Boorman movies.

Excalibur a bit outdated, but still OK.  Deliverance and The Emerald Forest aged very well, and (much) better than most recent movie-output. 

Deliverance was a masterpiece. It totally carries the test of time. Saw it recently. While the period was there, the story was timeless.

 

He got a real pretty mouth, ain't he?

Drew Ballinger: Is he alive? Lewis Medlock: Not now.

I thought both series of Mindhunter were superb.

 

With an IMDB rating of 8.6, seems I'm not the only one who rated it.

Mindhunter was initially good but its very slow storyline eventually made me switch off for good.

 

Tenet rated 8 on IMDb is worth a watch, i think rated 8 mostly by schoolboys who like sci-fi, an intentionally confusing story, personally i prefer movies that keep the viewer with them

He pretty much had free rein at the Children's Hospital as well.

Personally I found Mindhunter excruciatingly slow.

I noticed you read it as a book first? That tends to spoil movies and series, The Martian, although an ok movie, was spoiled for me because the book was far better.

Directed by Ridley Scott with a 8.7 review rating, can't be that bad, but I haven't watched it yet.

It's a real pity if he's gone woke. Made many a good movie.

 

EDIT: The rating sites are now flooded with the woke crowd. Any gay or minority movie will be around 9 right after the release as they are active in internet. The real reviews come months later.

This guy comes back to Thailand to revenge the death of some family members involved in a traffic accident.

I like seeing movies filmed in Thailand.  This one was just average I thought.

15988439847258797502922333029592.jpg

I wanted to like it, as it is a Thai production, with a mostly Thai crew. It is certainly not an Ong Bak, Pee Mak, or a King Naresuan. Although not highly rated, Only God forgives was great. Brutal. And Vithaya Pansringarm played the nastiest, best mean and corrupt Thai cop ever. A truly memorable performance. Ryan Gosling was great, as usual. Very atmospheric, directed by the highly eccentric, and very talented Nicolas Winding Refn. 

 

One Night was very poorly directed. Good cinematography, and Dacascos was great. But, it was too wooden, and the Thai cops with their perfect English skills were a bit much. Also, the bad guys seemed poorly cast. And the taxi driver, complaining about being broke, while driving a brand new Volvo SUV, and speaking english like she was from London. Yeah, right.

Been trying to get back into the most recent season Peaky Blinders. So far I'm not really getting into it. Previous seasons were way better. Hopefully the next season improves upon it. 

The general consensus, is that they basically lost the plot. Same as last two seasons of GOT. A pale shadow of the former seasons.

Raised by wolves.

Sadly another woke PoS ......... multicultural children and strong female androids with magical abilities.

The male android being portrayed as a bit weak & stupid, because as everyone knows, men are weak & stupid.

Watched all three episodes, it didn't get any better, just sillier.

Disappointing for somebody who made Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator, it's as if he started at the top and has worked his way down. Surprised they did not call the kids L G B T Q + , watched first one doubt if it gets better.

I have to admit you are correct. I couldn't get past the first half of episode one, and I'm a sucker for good SciFi. Half decent SFX but that's about it.
