ok um, this was a lot, my mind is in shambles and just...a mess. one of the wildest things i've ever seen. this review probably sucks since 1. this movie fucked me up and 2. that school is starting to reduce my regular movie watching(-ness?).
if there's one thing that bones undoubtedly is, is confident, having a tight grip on the horror genre in several of its forms, as well as the blacksploitation films from the 70s, most prominently from…
despite my uncomfortable cinema experience for the film. I thought that this film was just okay. the performances were great, the writing was impressive but I don’t think I’ll watch it again. it’s a slow burner film that really take its time in execution. the session was sold out so it was nerve racking watching the extensive rape scenes but yeah. TW also. the action was also visceral and the film itself was great to see on the big screen. this film still proves that Sir Ridley Scott can make films any day.
If you like to watch movies for the gore and nothing else then this will work for you. If you prefer substance, likeable characters and films that don't look like they are filmed on someone's shifty farm then give this a miss.
• The friend at the start is seriously one of the worst friends I've ever seen on film. There was no context for her to be that upset about her mate not wanting to graffiti.
• Why the hell did Rose act like she was 4 years old, it annoyed the heck out of me.
wow its 2005 and piss-colored torture shit is BACK for netflix'd elevated-horror kids who say actors are "casted"! this sub-platinum dunes aussie crap is so 00s its even got the (spoilers) webcam/V.R./surveillance most-dangerous-game/battle-royale twist* and a bunch of overdesigned halloween-store slipknot cosplay guys who'd look played out at a local "haunt." its trendy/pretentious letterboxd description ("A gripping female-driven horror film (...) burrows into universal themes of survival, revenge and redemption and reveals the darkness lurking within us all" lmao) fronts…
A fun Most Dangerous Game style slasher with some truly great gore was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for on a lazy day off. It’s nothing too original but it does what it sets out to do. There’s very little character development and the girls aren’t particularly likable, but that’s not really something you come to a movie like this for. There’s also a part at the end that didn’t make sense or maybe I just didn’t…
This wasn’t for me. I could barely stand the characters, they’re just so ugly and dumb. It goes out of its way to appeal towards woke politics to even have a coherent engaging story because this has been done before and done way better. It almost feels like they took this generic plot from countless other movies to force feed its ughhh tiring agenda. Which I’m not complaining, they can do what they want but once it interferes with the narrative it’s just ugh trash. A steaming burn pile of nasty trash.
I almost gave up on watching "The Furies" in the first few minutes. The two main characters are a cartoon sketch of what we now call SJWs. And they are really unbearable. I couldn't care less about the protagonist. In the first act, she only shows weaknesses before miraculously developing a strong survival instinct.
The idea behind "The Furies" is interesting and I loved the way they explained the rules through the protagonist's eyes rather than dragging the plot into…
What time is it?
What do you mean? That can't be right, the sky is blue!
It's fine. It's Sweden.
On first viewing about 18 months ago, I found Midsommar a little vague and missing a certain something. This time round though, with the added 20 odd minutes of Ari Aster's special sauce included in the Director's cut, I was totally bowled over by it.
This is a film full of sunshine and light. Golden hues and bright…
Lesson: do not watch this with the family.
I kind of enjoyed this? Its interesting and constantly keeps you asking questions, and answering them, and then questioning if your answer is right. It's so weird, but I'm not sure I digged it all the time.
I love a lot of the subplots going on here, but they aren't really expanded on clearly. (I know Lynch obviously expanded on them in a different way to most filmmakers but I did not…
This is a small budget - and I mean small budget - movie filmed around my home area. With a bunch of random actors I know and have worked with in the local theatre scene.
It was filmed almost ten years ago. With another almost half a decade in post.
There’s a moment where a city is digitally placed into an area with one of the buildings having their logo mirrored. It’s a giant mirrored logo on a giant building.
Some of my followers on Letterboxd were in this movie. To them, I ask:
Can you explain this plot to me?
