Movie Last Movie You Watched Part 2

I'm Gonna Be The Bestest Pilot in the Galaxy
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.
I don't think I've ever walked out of a movie, but I have seen movies where I really wished the projector would break so I had an excuse to leave.

For example, Ghost In The Shell.

I didn't mind Ghost in the Shell. It was...fine.

I was ditching a shift at Best Buy to watch the movie, I got about ten minutes in and decided I'd rather be at work, so I left.

I walked out of Mary Poppins, but agreeing to see that was my own damn fault. I let my brother guilt me into it by saying my niece wanted me to go (she couldn't of cared less), and to be honest I kind of confused it with The Sound of Music when he mentioned it, which would have been made somewhat interesting with the Nazis.

Besides that, the only movie I wanted to walk out on was some 300-like bullshit that came out years ago. Clash of Titans or immortals or some shit like that. My second-worse decision was going to see Indiana Jones 4 at midnight when it was released, but that couldn't have been helped, and there wasn't any chance of me walking out.

But I have grown to despise theaters, so I rarely go anymore

I watched “the king of Detroit” last night the dave landau “movie” he’s been pitching.

Yea.... soooooooo... ok, now I know how hard it is to make a movie, even the lowest budget film requires a lot of money, time both in the shooting and the editing and finding friends that are willing to make assholes out of themselves in public for free, but, with the cost and ready availability of “pro-sumer” equipment (even back in 2012) I think that they could have spent a little more time and or money on the actual “filming” quite frankly the entire movie looks like it was shot with hand held cellphones, or the old “flip” video cameras and that’s ok, to do here and there, except it was over used to the point it became annoying to watch. Because it was making me “sea sick” and the cameras were inconsistent, like they were using 3-4 different types of cameras with different settings for the exact same scene, and they didn’t correct it in post which gave it a strange inconsistency, the colors were off, the exposure the grain etc (what you get when you use different cameras and don’t adjust them properly) now, it could have been the effect they were going for, but, I didn’t like it.
ironically the audio wasn’t bad, a little “off” here and there for the voice overs (to be expected, I’m fighting with that myself right now syncing audio is incredibly difficult) now, to credit the editor there was a few “after effects” thrown in, in post that were cool, and a few practical effects that cost a few bucks. The love interest wasn’t bad to look at either
The story wasn’t bad, typical “coming of age” “one crazy night” comedy, the acting was as expected for a low budget film, I’m not going to watch it again, and I would still suggest watching it to send a few pennies Dave’s way, but I like Dave, and I fully support independent films and film makers.
So if you have an hour or so to kill meh watch it

In amateur film, audio is EVERYTHING. An audience will easily accept less than perfect picture quality, but audio that is muffled or hard to understand will literally make people angry since the brain can't process it.

So many amateur film-makers spend all their time on cameras and lights, but nothing on sound recording. It should be the other way around.

Get good sound and you instantly separate yourself from 90% of student bozos out there.

Mengele having all the twins sing "A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Medicine Go Down" before experimenting on them would've made the movie much better imho, but I'm no Roger Ebert.

To call back a few pages ago, I went and watched Vampires again, and it's probably the last decent film from John Carpenter, and maybe the last decent starring role from James Woods?

Anyhow, was wondering what Tim Guinee was up to since then, and ran across this.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017). Love-it-or-hate-it A24 strikes again. Chalk this one up on the "love it" side. It's too much of a slow build to try to describe spoiler-free. Just watch it. Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, the boat kid from Dunkirk, and some consistently bizarre and effective line delivery choices. From the same Greeks who came up with The Lobster, so I guess I should eventually check that out.
I watch this last night. Pretty much from the beginning, it was uncomfortable and creepy. I really thought the whole cast was great and you're right about the line delivery choices. Between this and American Animals, Dunkirk kid has a bright future ahead of him. I thought one of most warped moments of the film was when:

When Colin Farrell went to his kids' school and was going to use their grades and their behavior as a way to decide which one he should kill.

I'm guess I'm going to have watch the Lobster now too.

Didn't watch it, but, from what I read, want to know...

Colin Farrell couldn't choose to shoot himself in that scenario?

I think it was implied you couldn't rig the game in that way. I mean that kid was a scamp, he wouldn't let him get off so easy.

Then the question is why not kill the wife?

Is the film just a cinematic test for sociopaths?

The kid distinctly tells Colin Farrell that, "You killed a member of my family, now I will kill a member of yours".

Executive Action.- Rogue intelligence agents, right-wing politicians, greedy capitalists, and free-lance assassins plot and carry out the JFK assassination in this speculative agitprop.

It was written by Dalton Trumbo and stars Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan (in his last role), Will Greer, and a whole bunch of a "hey its that guy" actors, including the recently deceased Dick Miller. It was the first feature film about a JFK assassination conspiracy theory . Its shot in an almost documentary style and is a lot tighter and less bloated than Oliver Stone's JFK. In fact, Steve Jaffe, Jim Garrison's investigator was the film's technical consultant. Its a solid movie for a regular audience and porn for conspiracy theorists.

I fucking loved it, but half of people will find it boring and weird. I was riveted the entire time. Unique score, VERY disturbing, extremely well-made. There are some absolutely terrific horror movies coming out recently alongside the usual mainstream garbage.

@LiddyRules - might wanna check this out if you haven't yet. One of my favorite Tilda Swinton performances (she plays multiple characters in this).

I can’t speak for him, but I doubt any horror movie is going to live up to Wish Upon....

I own it. I keep meaning to watch it again. Plus the original. A lot of the imagery/ambience is so memorable that I think it would benefit from a second showing.

Best movie of last year. I think it's a masterpiece.

Solace. Anthony Hopkins is a psychic investigator tasked with helping the FBI search for a serial killer. A good movie that could have been a great movie in the hands of someone else. He's actually pretty excellent in it. Everyone else, meh. Collin Ferrell is almost embarrassingly bad.
