    Discussion is welcome, questions may be politely inquired, but NO insults or attacking allowed.

    Superman 3 is more logical than (Lester's) Superman 2.

    Grave of the Fireflies makes me angry with the brother's actions instead of sad for them two kids, so its stress to make martyrs out of them as war's pure victims is borderline dramatic fraud for me. Not a fan. (I later came across Mike D'Angelo's review and he put it perfectly for me that it's more anti-idiocy rather than anti-war)

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    I'm so on board with this. I'd put Observe and Report in this arena too.

    Add to watchlist, though I find Popstar to be only mildly pleasant. How does Hot Rod compare?

    Logan and Batman: Under the Red Hood are the only great superhero movies that have come out since The Dark Knight (I still haven't seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I hope that's number 3).

    Yup, Spider-Verse is no. 3.

    The American is a fucking great film and how Anton Corbijn doesn't have a dozen more films made is disappointing.

    Personally I'd rather watch a real Jean-Pierre Melville film.
    Just because...
    Ash Is Purest White (Jia Zhangke, 2018) mild
    Au bonheur des dames (Julian Duvivier, 1930) warm
    Kansas City (Robert Altman, 1996) mild

    The last book I read was...
    Seize the Day by Saul Bellow


    The (New) World

    Can you explain your reasoning for putting the word "real" in that post? I've been pondering it and I cant quite understand.

    He's dead. Also boring movies do exist. Swimming Pool comes to mind.

    How about this one. Under the Red Hood is the third best DC movie ever behind the Dark Knight and Flashpoint.

    Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom is awesome, endlessly rewatchable, and the political incorrectness only makes the movie more dangerous and interesting. It's The Searchers of Indiana Jones movies.

    Most argument I can make here is I might rearrange the three but they would probably all be there.

    I have yet to disagree with anything in this thread. Loving it all.

    Superman 3 is an excellent film and would have been better received in the post quippy MCU era. It's the Thor: Ragnarok of Superman movies.

    On the same riff, Howard the Duck is quite funny and weird and doesn't deserve the 'bomb' treatment it received.

    Forrest Gump might not be a great film, but I think the naysayers downplay how much of it is a satire of OH SO IMPORTANT touchstones in the baby boomer post-war years. It's mostly about a retarded guy taking the piss out of self-important boomers. Reminds me of that line in Walk Hard: "the 60s are a very important and exciting time!"

    Black Panther is a fine film, and its nomination for a Best Picture Oscar is not a cause for anger or disappointment in view of previous absurd Best Picture nominees.
