    Sweet! And followed

    Didn't True Lies have some Miami? Where they blew up the bridge? I guess thats the Keys but isn't that close?

    Yes! Bit hesitant with the ones who only have one sequence though, like the 007 ones Irish mentioned.

    I definitely don't think any movie has really captured what South Beach is like.

    At least with Wild Things, it felt muggy and humid.

    Haven't seen The Birdcage...
    Wild Things is good. The Birdcage is hilarious.

    I really need to see more Fellini. My local library has a bunch of his movies plus Criterion of course so I have no excuse. 8 1/2 is excellent and I own it on DVD.

    I don't really consider True Lies to be a Miami film but hey whatever it's close enough.

    Return of Godzilla (1984)



    The big guy comes back and he's all pissed off again because the humans woke him up. Man is he cranky in the morning oh wait this happens at night. Nevermind. Naturally he sets out for Japan again, meanwhile the Soviets and the US want to nuke the creature even though the Japanese would be affected and that's how they got stuck with an angry fire breathing monster in the first place. Read the room, USSR and the US!

    The humans in this movie are solid enough-I cracked up at the one drunk guy who wasn't afraid to talk smack to Godzilla when he should have been running away. How they defeat Godzilla is actually not bad. I liked it for being a simple plan. Also at one point the JDF sends a cool spaceship to attack Godzilla and it actually is oddly effective. Also why doesn't Godzilla tower over the buildings I thought he was much bigger. Hmm, odd.

    This film definitely had some influence on both the 2014 Godzilla and Shin Godzilla. I liked it a lot and I'm looking forward to seeing more of the 1980s/1990s Godzilla movies. Also I used a random Internet site to watch this I mean via legitimate means, I swear. Wink wink. This flick was missing the wicked sweet Godzilla theme music though which is a bummer. Oh well, 8.5/10, check it out.

    PS: I've only seen 24/36 total which is if you count the American ones which I do. I've seen most of the 1999-2004 Godzilla ones.

    The Florida Project was excellent. Sean Baker is an exciting filmmaker. Pumped for his new movie.

    One of the best films to come out these past few years. You should check out Tangerine.
    Last Excellent Movie Seen For the Very First Time:
    The Crowd (1928, King Vidor)

    Had a lot of fun watching House. Best movie I've seen in some time. I can see how the style would be divisive, but I ate it up. Just hearing the characters' names made me laugh. Also, fabulous ending.

    How do you mean?

    I just knew someone would say Florida Project as Miami, lol.

    I figured St Petersburg too.

    South Florida (maybe all of Florida) is just weird.

    Is that the Japanese one or the 1986 one? I like both.

    The Florida Project is great but man what a hard flick to get through. The ending made me tear up a little.

    The phrase you're probably looking for is mise-en-scène.
    Almost, but not quite, since dialogue isn't considered part of that concept (at least, it isn't in my experience), so I felt I should avoid lumping it into that term alongside the other, visually-based elements I mentioned.

    Japanese. Intrigued by the 1986. Is it also campy and more comedy than horror? I'd be interested to see more horror-first take.

    The Florida Project is a punch in the gut. One of those "starts bad and gets worse and worse" type stories. Still, fantastic film. I may actually prefer Tangerine, though. Will never cease to be amazed that it was made on an iPhone.

    Saw this on Twitter and thought it'd be fun to see what other folks on the board have: Movies you've watched the most (not necessarily included in your top ten).

    Mine:

    1) Star Wars: A New Hope*
    2) Can't Hardly Wait*
    3) Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    4) Pulp Fiction
    5) The Big Lebowski
    6) Rocky Horror Picture Show
    7) Magnolia
    8) Manhattan
    9) Best in Show
    10) A Clockwork Orange

    * Watched one of these to fall asleep to most nights when I was 11 or so

    Back when I was a teen and taped movies off TV Carrie and Carlito's Way were a fixture to have in the background.

    Equal parts angry at and angry for the characters.
