Movie Last Movie You Watched Part 2

Hog's Big Ben

Getting ass-***** in The Octagon, brother.

Anyway, I was most excited about this after reading reviews calling it "a vile, nasty, Right-wing film'. So I sat back expecting (hoping?) for some Leftist idea of what constitutes 'Right-wing'; namely N-bombs and gleeful wasting of minorities.
I went back and looked at some the negative reviews. The only one with a picture of a black critic was the most well thought out. He had complaints like how Gibson wasn't racist enough. We're supposed to believe that Mel's response to his teen daughter getting attacked repeatedly by black thugs is to steal some money and meekly move out of town? And why is "racist" Vaughn engaged to a black girl?

One of the white critics wrote about "lazy misogyny" and "lazy stereotypes," apparently missing the irony of being too lazy to use a thesaurus.

Dakota Johnson’s hiney did look perfect in those jeans though.
Her buttocks were a highlight in THE SOCIAL NETWORK as well.

But I think she was genuinely great in SUSPIRIA. She has a very calm, feminine presence and a soft voice (much like her mother) and that worked perfectly, as opposed to all these actresses who think they have to rant and punch people to be seen as 'strong' on screen. Dakota Johnson in SUSPIRIA is a rose with a steel stem. How quietly she plays that extraordinary final scene with the Doctor brings a tear to my eye every time.

And to save you fuckers the time...

Upgrade - I’m not sure it made 100% sense. I’m not sure it made any sense at all. But goddamn was it a lot of fun.
 
Spider-Man: Homecoming. It was even better the second time around. If you count Civil War, they really did do an amazing job at building up the Peter Parker/Tony Stark dynamic over the course over a movie and half. It really adds to the emotional impact of what happens at the end of Infinity War. A repeat viewing also gave me a better appreciation for Laura Harrier.

I'm really hoping that Far From Home takes place before the finger snap though. Given the fact that this comes out after Endgame, I have this concern that it maybe a bit of letdown given what's preceding it and because its the last MCU movie for awhile.

I also re-watched Black Panther. Not only does it work as a stand alone film, but you can also consider it part 3 of a AOU and Civil War trilogy.

I liked a super hero movie. The Spidey verse. It's amazing how much animation changes my mindset.

Real people playing superheroes is gay yet animated superheroes work...if well done, of course.

Pig is the only one I know who disliked it. Even among "superhero movies are lame" people.

And not to get too MCU here, but I'd much rather see Daredevil reappear in a sequel to this. There's something about the physics.

Something I realized about us (you and me specifically) is that we seem to respect animation but have never gotten into anime.
 
Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

It lived up to the good things that I had heard about it. Although they were really milking that ending. One of my favorite parts of the movie was when they paid homage to the original television series by:

Tricking the physicist into believing there had been a series of nuclear attacks.

If I'm not mistaken, they also played some of the music from the series too.

Finally, the mannequin in the sky during the parachute scene didn't look good and Vanessa Kirby is a handsome woman.

Pig didn't like it??? Well, I thought we were going to agree for once.
 
I really liked MI-Fallout. It made me want to rewatch the other MI movies starting with the first one, which I don't think I've seen since it came out. And I'm sure it's been said before, but the MI run > Craig Bond run.
I’ve never seen a Jack Reacher or Equalizer movie.

Regarding MI v Bond, here’s a couple different cuts at it:

MI v Connery Bond
MI v Moore Bond

MI v the top 6 Bonds overall. Which of course means you have to pick the best 6 overall. Off the top of my head its (in no order)

Goldeneye
Casino Royale
Octopussy
Thunderball
OHMSS
Goldfinger

I think MI beats Moore’s run fairly easily and edges Connery’s run by a hair. I think MI 2&3 are both considerably worse than all of the better Bond movies, so I think Bond top 6 > than MI top 6.

But overall MI is the better and more consistent franchise. And Cruise’s Ethan Hunt is a better character than any version of Bond.
I think the Top 6 would be (in no order):

Golden Eye
Casino Royale
The Spy That Loved Me
From Russia With Love
OHMSS
Goldfinger

MI vs Moore's Bond: MI
MI vs Connery's Bond: Connery. I think the first four Bond movies puts him over the top.
MI vs Craig's Bond: MI. I say that as someone who still doesn't like the first Mission: Impossible.
Bond's top 6 > than MI Top 6

In the franchise battle, I'll look at it differently. I think Mission: Impossible still has a brighter future. Where the Bond one is living on its past reputation and has no idea what direction it wants to go in.

Character wise, When Bond is done right, I have to give the edge to him. But as of right now, its Ethan Hunt.

I just wanna say I'm team Mission Impossible and it's not all that close.
I think a lot of the Bond thing has to do with nostalgia. Not just the nostalgia of watching them growing up but also the nostalgia of them as timepieces. This is what a 60s action movie was like, this is what a 70s action movie was like, etc. And I appreciate them in that vein as well. Especially the 60s ones. I admittedly love that retro sci fi aesthetic and when adult movies could unironically have a hollowed out volcano lair.

All 6 Mission Impossible movies are at least...good. MI2 is probably the closest they came to making a bad film, and that's still head and shoulders above most of the Bond films. That being said, there are at least a few Bond films that are better than all of the MI movies (except maybe Ghost Protocol). And not just for the nostalgia that Lids mentioned. They're just better.

But overall yes, the MI franchise is much better.

Now I'm sitting here trying to decide if Ghost Protocol is better than Goldeneye. I don't think it is, but it's close.

I didn't say nostalgia is the only reason, but it's definitely a factor. I'm more willing to rewatch a Bond than an MI. Though I have wanted to rewatch MI 1 to see where it began. I also get a sense JB isn't into older movies.

He'd like a James Bond cartoon, I guess.

I had a really bad experience seeing it, so my mood probably didn't help my perception of the movie. I really didn't like the animation style, although I'm told by people smarter than me that I was supposed to like it because it broke new ground!



But it wasn't for me. I was in a mood, found the animation blurry and annoying, and therefore sat there and picked the story to shreds rather than enjoying it's ground breaking-ness. I'm very glad that you enjoyed it though.

At this point, other than being generally well done, nothing is more important to me than ground breaking/different. You seem not to care much about it. I envy your position. Mine sucks.
 
Never been a fan of Mission Impossible (beyond the first one), and I'm a 70's/80's Bond fan. Kinda lost interest after Goldeneye. Not sure why.

I think if I had known going in that the blurriness was intentional and that the way they achieved it was actually groundbreaking I probably would have appreciated it more. I'm pretty simple though - give me a good story with characters I can feel invested in and I'm probably going to enjoy myself.

I think this might be the only movie that I've ever actually walked out of.
I've only walked out of one movie - Super Troopers. And that was less about the movie than the obnoxious guy with the broken leg who was hopped up on pain killers and "over-laughing" at everything.
