Traffik (2018). Omar Epps and Paula Patton vacation at their rich friend's house in the mountains where some racist thugs who harassed them on the way show up for some hilarity and hijinks. Patton is gorgeous but she stinks as an actress, the dialogue introducing the characters sounds like it was written by a white guy mocking black people, and the "twist" is so clichéd that you think "nah they wouldn't" but yeah they did. But other than that, it's still a pretty bad movie.

Breaking In (2018). Gabrielle Union and her two kids head up to her dead criminal father's heavily secured house after he's murdered only to intrude on a quartet of bad guys' plans to acquire $4 million in cash hidden away in a safe. It's the first solo writing credit for the guy who cowrote Rampage, The Commuter, and Non-Stop, so adjust your expectations accordingly. I liked all of those movies and I liked this; it jumps right into the story and wraps it up well under 90 minutes, the vaguely-hinted-at backstories of the characters are interesting, and Union's feistiness made a basic cat and mouse game a lot easier to watch. Trade her for Patton in Traffik and she could've elevated that turd to "just barely watchable."

Konnichi wa bitches!

Sanjuro.- A crafty samurai helps a young man and his fellow clansmen save his uncle, who has been framed and imprisoned by a corrupt superintendent.

The Hidden Fortress.- Lured by gold, two greedy peasants escort a man and woman across enemy lines. However, they do not realize that their companions are actually a princess and her general.

I'm always surprised by how sneaky funny Kurosawa's samurai films are.
Which reminds me, I have to complete my Kurosawa Project on here at some point. I'm just getting into the best stuff.

Extinction “a Netflix original” meh, kind of predictable after the first half hour or so, kind of boiler plate sci fi with the usual twists and morality issues, not a complete waste of time since I was avoiding yard work but not worth searching out.

The Disaster Artist - what a bunch of garbage. The movie reveals literally nothing about Tommy Wiseau, just recreates scenes from The Room for the fuck of it, with Seth Rogen along to explain why everything he’s doing is weird. The worst part is the movie claims to be about the filming of the worst movie of all time, which is clearly not true, because I watched the worst movie of all time right after this, and it wasn’t the fucking Room I’ll tell you that.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai - Now this - this lady (is @Queen_Bona still around?) and gentlemen, and Liddy - This is a bad movie. Worse than plan 9 from outer space. Worse than The Room. Worse even than Man of Steel if anyone can believe that anymore. I defy anyone to take any line of dialogue from this movie and make sense of it. From the 10,000 word opening crawl that makes no sense, to Ellen Barkin doing...whatever the hell it is she’s doing, to...Christ do I even talk about John Lithgow? And did I mention Peter Weller of Robocop fame as a Japanese neurosurgeon rock star?

This will be the next HitW.

A blatant rip off of my own joke from the Disaster Artist thread.

I watched the movie and didn't get it. Some people REALLY love this movie, and others, like yourself, think its absolute trash. I didn't particularly like it but it did seem like it had potential to be good. I always wanted to get the book as I had heard the writer's tone comes across better and maybe I could finally wrap my head around what they were trying to go for.

The book reveals only a little bit as well as Tommy closely guards his history. He's known to dodge the question "Where are you from originally?", but Tommy tells Greg about a 'friend of his' that grew up in Poznan, Poland and absolutely hated it there and desperately wanted to go to America. Got smuggled into France to pay off his trip to America, washing dishes for years and taking abuse from staff and the police on the regular. Eventually he got to America, met some relatives in New Orleans but soured that relationship when he totaled their car. He eventually settled to selling import crap in San Francisco, even owning property there. He may have had criminal connections and we still don't know his age really.

Reading the book, I could never watch the movie as it comes across cruel with all these successful people going "Haha we made it and you didn't".

Arsenic and Old Lace.- Drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant) learns on his wedding day that his beloved maiden aunts (Josephine Hull, Jean Adair) are homicidal maniacs, and that insanity runs in his family.

Fantastic movie directed by Frank Capra. From the opening scene, its rapid fire funny and even when it began to drag a bit towards the end, I still found it entertaining. Some of the highlights include the faces that Grant makes, Mortimer's brother (John Alexander) who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and his other brother (Raymond Massey), a serial murderer who arrives with his plastic surgeon accomplice (Peter Lorre). But I thought the best part of it was the pleasantly insane aunts, two of the sweetest poisoners you will ever meet.

I liked it but didn't feel like it was a great cliff hanger of an ending.
Dr Strange already looked into the future and said there was 1 possible
outcome where Thanos is defeated. Obviously the 2nd movie will
go thru that scenario.

Shane.- A weary gunfighter (Alan Ladd) attempts to settle down with a homestead family, but a smoldering settler/rancher conflict forces him to act.

After watching this movie in its entirety, I can honestly say that isn't one of the top 10 Westerns of all time. There are things to like about it. The title character, the performances by Ladd, Van Helfin, and Jack Palance and the story. The scenery looked great and I liked the theme of a gunfighter's place in the waning days of the Wild West.

My biggest gripe with it is the little kid. I know its just hero worship, but he just comes off as so annoying. He may have also been mentally challenged too. I cringed every time the camera panned to him and he had this dead eye look on his face. There is also this weird dynamic between Shane and Helfin's wife (Jean Arthur). When the kid is pleading for him to come back, he even makes it sound like his mother wants to bang Shane.

But this movie should get credit for one thing and @LiddyRules you will find this interesting:

Director George Stevens wanted to demonstrate to audiences "the horrors of violence". To emphasize the power of gunshots, he created a cannon-like sound effect by firing a large-calibre weapon into a garbage can. In addition, he had the two principal shooting victims—Palance and Elisha Cook Jr.—rigged with hidden wires that jerked them violently backward when shot. These innovations, according to film historian Jay Hyams, marked the beginning of graphic violence in Western movies. He quotes Sam Peckinpah: "When Jack Palance shot Elisha Cook Jr. in Shane, things started to change."

So if I was ranking the top 10 Westerns from 1939-1964, this is what I got so far:

1. High Noon
2. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
3. A Fistful of Dollars
4. The Magnificent Seven
5. 3:10 To Yuma
6. Stagecoach
7. Shane
8. My Darling Clementine
9. The Searchers

I actually watched a Western from the same period over the past week. Warlock from 1959 with Henry Fonda, Anthony Quinn, Richard Widmark, and DeForest Kelly. I'm surprised it's not better regarded because it's quite good and with a lot more complexity than most other movies from that period. The acting is also quite good and makes you wonder if a lot of these Westerns would hold up better had John Wayne not starred in most of the bigger ones.

Apparently not.

I haven't seen Buckaroo Banzai in years, and I remember liking it, but I also can't remember if it's the type of movie I liked because I felt I was supposed to like it (and don't act like I'm saying nonsense, you know what I mean). I'd see it again, but not in an HitW setting. Is it streaming anywhere? I think I'd still like it and you're just a square.

But I did think it was stupid making Buckaroo Banzai part of Personalityless Joe's repertoire in RPO. I'm not saying that they should have gone super obvious with all the references but Buckaroo Banzai especially didn't fit.

Furthermore, upon watching Captain Ron recently, I realized that I never realized how much Martin Short looks like Ben Mendelsohn.

It’s on Prime and was going to be my WoD suggestion for this week. Before you dismiss it, keep in mind that Peter Weller plays a Japanese neurosurgeon rock star. And that Ernest Cline wanted to be him when he grew up. Also, FEZ MAN says it’s a great movie.
