Zack Snyders Justice League - Long, but thought it was much better than the original release.

Even with the disclaimer at the end that it was done 'humanely', seeing tens of kangaroos get domed in Wake in Fright was horrible!

Like Jodorowsky blowing up a load of frogs with dynamite in Holy Mountain. So senseless Laughing out loud
Cannibal Holocaust is one of the worst I can remember Cry

Knives out and Murder on the Orient Express are the obvious ones.

Not necessarily murder mystery but Grand Budapest Hotel is quality and sprung to mind.

Nice seen all of those but thanks for the recommendations. Watched knives out a couple of weeks ago and really liked.

Found knives out to be total dogshit, what a waste of acting talent.

Recently watched autumn afternoon by ozu, very nice and calming movie. Recommended if you’re tired or hungover as it’s quite soothing.

The shining
The ring ( original japanese )
The grudge ( original japanese )
Possession
Begotten ( can watch on youtube )
Audition

I think it was this that did it ! You edited it but before was pretty dumb I remember. But straight up someone asking for horror recommendations and saying The Shining? I mean, who hasn’t heard of or seen the shining? Come on son

end of apocalypse now when the cow gets 'cheted up springs to mind. although Copolla said the cow was already getting it, still seems strange

Trying to remember a film that’s in my head.

I think it’s based around this poor kid/family, and these are a couple of scenes I remember.
I’m not even sure they’re from the same film.

1. The kid makes soup by squirting a bit of ketchup into hot water

2. The kid cuts out a picture of food from a magazine and puts it on a plate and then eats it.

Any ideas?

Cheers mate, read the synopsis and it sounds about right.
Will give it another watch when I get a chance.

Been mainly writing for STILES Magazine lately, really enjoying it but there are so few worthwhile new releases at the moment!

Here's a bit I wrote about First Cow which I've definitely banged on about at least twice in this thread: https://www.stilesmagazine.com/post/first-cow-a-full-fat-dairy-drama


As for my recent watches:

An absolutely perfect short documentary about Alice Coltrane, shortly after John died. Available free here: https://nmaahc.si.edu/object/nmaahc_2012.79.1.16.1a

Mike Leigh's film Meantime, which has incredible early career performances from Tim Roth, Gary Oldman, Phil Daniels, and Alfred Molina, who is just superb.

Rewatched La La Land when it was on BBC1 the other Friday. I really enjoyed it when I saw it in the cinema but found myself becoming cynical about it in the weeks that followed. On a second viewing I realise you have to be such a grumpy prat to not get on board with it. The attention to detail, the beat-perfect choreography of every moment in the film, the music - all of it is so well executed, and it's intentions are really sound.

And I also watched Ammonite, which was alright but cold and lacking, which is a shame considering the good things I've heard about God's Own Country.

Really enjoyed the art of self defense on Netflix, will always watch Jesse Eisenberg being awkward and anxious ie vivarium, the double etc.
