Select prime/flix and get rid of the tat with the ratings slider. Much easier than scrolling through both independently

netflix/prime with the ratings slider set to 75%/7.5 returns 1 tv show… I know most of the stuff is crap but that can't be right.

Blackkklansman. Spike really can't make a decent movie. Editing, soundtrack, acting were subpar and the message was sledgehammered home with zero subtlety depth. Worst film I've seen in a while.

Wasn't that bad but wasn't that great either. Clockers was his finest hour imo.

They only one I rate. Saw it when it came out and never forget that opening scene with Rosie Perez. Rest of his movies are massively flawed but Klansman was a poor excuse of a movie when it could have been great. Can't remember such a badly edited film and the soundtrack pops up at irrelevant times. Was like a school doc about racism being bad. No way should have been up for best picture award. Golden Raspberry maybe.

25th Hour is the best thing Spike has done.

So good.

Was forced to see detective pikachu by my fucking idiot friend last night. At least he bought the tickets.

The PC-ness is so painful. It's definitely a movie made in 2019.

The heroes are a black kid and a white girl? tick.
The seemingly good white man at the start of the movie actually turns out to be super evil? tick
The seemingly evil white woman agent type is actually just a shape shifting evil pokemon controlled by the evil white man? tick.
Pikachu's dad is a good white man at the end but he looks like a young Guardian writer and he married a black woman so he's safe? tick
Pikachu asks the audience how they can't believe in climate change now during an EARTHQUAKE. tick
Pikachu suggests they go press the female reporter for more info but then quickly makes clear to the audience it's actually a metaphor. He then calls her a dame and is shamed by the kid and told women don't like that. tick.

Jesus Christ, I was really not liking the brainwashing of the kids (and some of the adults) in the audience and being talked down to constantly but stayed to see how many more left wing/social justice/identity politics messages they could cram into a movie about a fucking yellow piece of shit.

The effects were pretty good and the giant baby miming pokemon (fuck, is that a real pokemon?) is about the creepiest thing I've seen in a while. I had to look away.

By the way Disney has officially run out of ideas. The previews were for Toy Story 4, The Jungle Book, The Lion King and Aladdin.

The Kubrick exhibition at the design museum in London is good, at least for a fan. Some iconic items / props and actually good descriptions of everything. It did seem slightly superficial rather than go into detail on his creative process and explore theory of his films though.

Watched all of S. Craig Zahler's films in the last week. I'm late to the party but boy if there ever was a beacon of hope that the world hasn't been completely brainwashed by leftists it's his movies. You know, actual adult movies that focus on the acting and characters, not their race or gender unless it's part of the story or the character's motivations.

I think he's like Tarantino but without the sometimes pretentious homaging and constant referencing and overblown dialogue. Zahler's movies are straighter, they're no bullshit, no played out mulitple storylines and I like Tarantino's dialogue but sometimes it's pretentious. Zahler has good dialogue but he doesn't waste lines and it seems more plausible.

One of my favorites was in Dragged Across Concrete when Vaughn comes up to Gibson on a stakeout with a coffee. Gibson's like "did you get me one?" Vaughns like "no but I can tell you about mine, it all began on the warm shores of Jamaica.."

That line would fit just as much into an '80s buddy cop movie as this. It's not trying too hard but it's so great.

That sounds good, hope it comes to Australia one day.

Saw it in Copenhagen couple years ago and completely blew me away.

Maborosi this week, great stuff. Director of Shoplifters has a season on in some cinemas at the moment and is well worth checking out. It's a busy week with the next in that programme, High Life, Amazing Grace and at my cinema four consecutive Todd Solondz screenings with Q&A's.
