Anyone see 1917 yet? We're planning to go see it on Monday.
Interesting. Now I HAVE to see it--to find out for myself. Nothing personal, but some of my favorite movies have gotten mixed reviews.I watched Parasite, academy award winner, via Apple iTunes. It sucked. Can't believe it won several oscars.
I heard the Swedish movie Downhill is based on is actually pretty good. But yeah, this looks terrible, so thanks for the confirmation. I'm surprised JLD signed on for it. Will Ferrell makes lots of bad movies, but JLD at least seems a bit more discerning.I went to "Downhill" tonight with Will Ferrell and Julia L-D. Holy mother of God, that's quite possibly the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. And I'm one that thinks very, VERY few movies are "bad", especially if the popcorn is good (and tonight, even the popcorn was subpar).
Just a terrible train wreck of a movie; slow moving, terrible casting, no on-screen chemistry, shitty story line (whatever it really was), and it just seemed to never ever go anywhere. Wow.
Parasite is excellent. I don’t know if it’s better than 1917, for me, but it was worthy of best film.Interesting. Now I HAVE to see it--to find out for myself. Nothing personal, but some of my favorite movies have gotten mixed reviews.
Parasite did make me do some thinking about foreign-language films and the Academy Awards. OK, I'm not saying that Amadeus wasn't Oscar worthy. It was obviously an impressive film. But what I AM saying is that "My Life as a Dog" (Sweden) was a better film that year.
