Girls Trip was just lukewarm funny. Nothing original or special - Just kinda that, "girls can do crass/shock humor, too. See."

I enjoyed Last Flag Flying, it felt like I was watching a Hal Ashby movie. The cast is great. Cranston is great, but I really liked Carrell who went with a more understated straight man approach, he only had one comedic scene. Dads will like this.

I'll preface this by saying that I went to screenings of The Room every last Saturday of the month from 2007-2010. I've watched that movie more than any other movie ever.

The Disaster Artist was one of funniest movies I've ever seen.

It feels so weird to me that the Disaster Artist is only getting released now. I saw it so long ago and it's been hitting the festival circuit for what seems like forever. It's a great movie.

Wiseau on Kimmel was hilarious. When he inevitably appears at the Oscars as a presenter and tag-along with Franco somehow, its going to be a great moment.

Seeing The Disaster Artist in the big Chinese Theater with most of the cast including Tommy and Greg was a cool experience.

When you see it, stay for the post credit scene. That was actually my favorite part of the movie.

Saw Lady Bird last night and thought it was great as expected.

I grew up in the same area at the same time, so it was sorta like looking at a weird postcard from my past.

I didn’t grow up in the same area, but I had the same feeling.

I thought it was really good but I didn’t like it as much as most others seemed to like it.

Spoiler: show
There were three scenes that I thought transcended into greatness: the scene where she promises to keep the gay boyfriend’s secret, the scene where the head nun explains to her that sometimes love is paying attention, and the final scene where she’s talking about feeling emotional driving around your hometown.

Was her friend fucking the math teacher?

Also weird continuity error that doesn’t matter but when she turns 18 the clerk says it’s a year in 1987 that she needs to be born before to buy the cigs, lotto card, and porn but the year is 2003 so it should be 1985.

Dude was shown to just be generally oblivious. That scene was purely to further Julie's pining melancholy. There is no subtext there and I think it's weird that you feel there was.

Disagree, but I think if you didn't like it, you would surely hate the book. Given the challenges of the plot, I thought Branagh did an admirable job.

Yeah, definitely. As a dude now in my 30s, this was something that resonated with me for sure. It's also something that was perfect for the film because a teenager just wouldn't get it.

I think her friend was just kinda in love with the math teacher, and I didn't notice the continuity error, but nice catch. I definitely did the same shit when I turned 18 haha.

Never read the book, but have seen the Sidney Lumet movie. I just felt the supporting characters felt thin and underwritten while Branagh put more attention on himself. He was good, but the supporting cast felt wasted. I'm also not much of a fan of Josh Gad.

Pixar have another masterpiece with Coco. It's vibrant and emotional in a way I wasn't expecting. Might not be their most high-concept movie, but it's on par with the best for me.

Went to a screening of that a couple weeks ago with the director doing a Q+A afterwards, I liked this one quite a bit. Joachim Trier mentioned how he almost went with doing an 80's John Carpenter like score for the movie, but stuff like Stranger Things prevented him from doing that and he went with a traditional score instead. Which I think worked better anyways. It's a departure from his other movies (Reprise, Oslo August 31st, Louder Than Bombs)

The Villainess has the most intense opening scene I've ever seen in my life by a country mile, then just seems to settle into a good South Korean style revenge flick. The cinematography really is something.

The Disaster Artist is pretty good, but I feel like it probably wouldn't make much sense if you haven't seen The Room. Also I would be very surprised if it wins any Oscars.

The Square was great, the ending was... perplexing as fuck. I really enjoy Ostlund's caricatures of the wealthy and elitists and his satire of society and humanity. Laughed a lot in the beginning, he has a very specific dry cringe inducing humor that I love. The ballroom exhibition scene completely overhauled the tone of the movie and the rest of the film I was in awe, not too many laughs as I feel like that was intentional. I will have to see it again when it's on demand.

What is the disaster artist? Is it a comedy? Dramedy? Fully serious about Tommy's weird confidence? I can't get a read from the trailers but I feel like Greg's book played more towards pointing out how absurd it all was.

The Disaster Artist was more of a comedy with a small hint of drama. I thought it was fun when I saw it.

My friend saw an early screening of Phantom Thread and said it was incredible and he couldn't wait to see it again.

I loved the Square, I was expecting something more cynical and mean-spirited but the while film felt kind of joyous which I liked. Most of the gag's weren't at anyone's expense really (like the janitor vacuuming up the robert smithson-esque work of art) Also the funniest sex scene I've seen in a film.

Yall know my stance on Dunkirk


I'm more people aren't big on Columbus. Both leads are fantastic and it's so measured and considered. Beautifully shot and just as somber as Lady Bird (though not nearly as funny, which isn't a detriment for their particular film).
