I watched Molly's Game yesterday and today because of this thread and I found it to be a terrifically bad movie. It starts out fine, the poker stuff is interesting. But it is super fucking Sorkin-y and very overwritten, and that gets to be pretty grating at a certain point. It just turns into a slog by the end. This should have been a movie about poker and building a business, it's rare that a movie that spends its second half in a courtroom is any good. This doesn't pull it off at all. The magic scene where her dad condenses three years of therapy into three minutes. :throwup: This whole movie says the quiet part out loud with the non-stop voiceover, but this scene just screams the loud part even louder. Why is the movie so convinced that Molly is this righteous character? Did she write this thing herself (and then let Sorkin put it through his Sorkin machine which stopped working about a decade ago and now just Sorkinizes everything it touches into a bloated piece of garbage)? I don't believe a word of it. I was yelling at my TV by the end at Idris Elba to please just let her plead guilty. Encourage the judge to give her the death penalty for subjecting me to this terrible movie.
Passably interesting for about an hour, but after two and a half hours, I'm ready to say that this is one of the worst movies I've seen in a while.

True Romance.

Loved it. What a beautiful mess of a movie. The fucking steel drum score killed me every time.

Also re-watched Children of Men last night in order to teach it today.

Scream.
What a masterpiece...one of my favorite movies of all time.
The cast is just so good here. Neve Campbell rules so much...the score, Craven, everything works.
The first sequence is an ll timer and the party with the Halloween score...brillant.

After my second viewing, I understand this perspective but I liked it a lot still. It just hit me at the right moment and I sympathized with her. And yeah.. after some time has passed, I think this could have benefited quite a bit from a better director. Not sure why I was so blown away at first. I was high and hung over...

Soul was really solid. A gorgeous looking film.

One Night in Miami... was full of fantastic performances, competent and compelling writing, and made me miss theater even more than I already do/did.

Mank was one of the biggest letdowns I've had watching a movie in a long, long time. Maybe ever.

I watched Martha Marcy May Marlene yesterday, for the second time after years of kinda forgetting it existed; I love movies about cults and survival from cults, and this is one of the best - absolutely amazing movie
