Those three films quickly spring into mind when I think of "Kafkaesque". Movies where the protagonist is persecuted and must deal with excessive and nonsensical bureaucracy to win in the end. But other movies fit this mold? I'm inquiring about movies that closely resembles Kafka's own work "The Trial". I kind of though "The Matrix" films fall into that category. Except those films don't have a bureaucratic or satrical nature to them.

Title pretty much says it all. It wasn't perfect by any means, but I haven't seen in a film with such a unique voice in a very, very long time.

Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson obviously kill it, but the supporting cast is fantastic and Armie Hammer turned in a surprisingly good performance. It constantly escalates and has such an absurd, otherworldly vibe to it while still managing to say a lot about current society.

Please, please do director Boots Riley and the people that helped produce it by seeing this in theaters, the audience reactions alone will probably be worth the admission price.

My original post about watching these.

Review of the first movie

Review of the second movie

Review of the third movie.

OK, the fourth one.

So they got everybody back for this one, how nice. This basically feels like the first actual sequel since neither of the other two had Walker and Diesel in them. Love that they killed of Michelle Rodriguez right away. One of my least favorite actresses that gets work in Hollywood.

This was better than any of the preceding three movies. It's not a great movie, but with Rodriguez's death, they found enough motivation to make a clear narrative line to drive the movie. It's fabricated as much as anything in the first 3 movies, but I went in for it more.

All the action sequences were generic and forgettable except for the final one in the desert an tunnels. And you know what? They finally had a action scene that was well made and drew me in. Very digital, obviously a lot of fake cars, but I was able to let that go and enjoy it for what it was. A pretty good car chase. I'm sure it was impressive in the theater in 2009.

What can I say? This one almost worked as an interesting movie throughout. I kind of liked it. Is there hope yet that this series is better than I expected?

Onward to Fast Five.

Does anyone know of a service that provides subtitles for movies? Looking for Spanish subtitles for Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs I have a digital copy of the film. I'm just going to use Gboard predict in order to meet this stupid sub's character minimum requirements.

Not gonna lie I’m a little nervous about this movie considering it has the Nee brothers who aren’t well known and hasn’t made that many movies. Anyone hyped, or rather see a different director take control. I rather see guillermo del toro direct the movie, knowing he can making a visually fantastic movie with praictal costumes accurately based off the characters. What are your guys thoughts, excited for the directors or rather see someone else take charge?

Written Reviews

William Bibbiani - The Wrap

It's a tough-as-nails action thriller, and all those nails are hammered directly into the movie's own coffin.

David Ehrlich - Indiwire

Day of the Soldado feels like it was written on a bender of whiskey and Viagra.

Darren Franich - EW

So Day of the Soldado is our generation's Rambo: First Blood, Part 2, a half-mad sequel transforming a traumatized political parable into a fantasy of all-American murder gods.

Peter Deburge - Variety (Spoilers!!!!)

"Soldado" may not be as masterful as Villeneuve's original, but it sets up a world of possibilities for elaborating on a complex conflict far too rich to be resolved in two hours' time.

Todd McCarthy - The Hollywood Reporter

Sicario: Day of the Soldado emerges as a dynamic action drama in its own right.

Witney Siebold - IGN

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a darkly thrilling film with excellent performances, and its gritty, intense action is balanced by heady themes of moral decay, but overall, because of recent political developments, it feels behind the times.

Mike Ryan - Uproxx

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is an intense, at times morally ambiguous, and gritty thriller that will leave you wanting more. And, now, Benicio del Toro finally has a franchise of his own.

Matt Goldberg - Collider

In some ways, Day of the Soldado is darker than Sicario, but it's darkness without purpose.

That movie is hilarious. Michael Richards was great in it as well. Basically a dumbed down Kramer but still good. He makes a bunch of references and parodies throughout the movie and I believe that he could really do something good with more recent events being referenced. Or anything really because at this point I would watch any movie that he had any part in.

Did James Cameron intentionally avoid having the guy say "I never let it sink in" because he thought it would be a cringey joke? When the guy said "Three years I've thought of nothing except Titanic. But I never got it. I never let it in."

Any fans here? I know there's a fair amount of Horror fans here and this series has a pretty good-sized following despite never being a big mainstream success. This is by far my favorite Horror series. The first two are my favorites with 2 being the absolute best to me, while 3 and 4 are also very good. Sadly the fifth film, Ravager, wasn't up to par and easily the weakest.

The series is basically a Horror/Sci-Fi hybrid (with a significant Action element present in the second) concerning the sinister operations of an otherworldy mortician known only as The Tall Man, who employs a number of minions to help him with his bidding including robed dwarves and flying killer spheres. Sounds weird? It is, but it's so awesome and to reveal any more about the series is pretty much spoiling it. The original four are all excellent but the fifth sadly wasn't up to par.

You can rank them too if you'd like, for me:

  • 2
  • 1
  • 4
  • 3
  • 5

Really a shame 5 wasn't a better finale :/ Really deserved much better. At least the original four will always be there to enjoy.

So my employer offers the AMC black tickets via e-purchase. I'm trying to book advance tickets for sunday night, but I want to book it on AMC's website so that I can pick which seats I want ahead of time.

So here's what I don't understand. Am I supposed to buy the black ticket from my employer's website first, then go to AMC website? I don't get it. Can anyone help me understand this better? Thanks

So way back in December they officially announced an "IT" extended cut would be coming to Blu-ray. It has now been half a year and there has been no word on when this will be realized. Is it not normal to release the extended cut around the same time the base Blu-ray comes out?

Just wondering if anyone has heard anything on this or if anyone is even interested in seeing a longer version.

It'd been years since I last watched Michael Mann's cops and robbers movie Heat and though the insane bank heist and ensuing battle can never be forgotten - the sounds of automatic fire in the LA canyons still rings in my ears - but watching it again I was reminded of what a stellar cast this movie had.

You have Robert De Niro and Al Pacino at the top of their game - the diner conversation being a cinematic highlight - but the supporting cast is staggering. You got Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore and Danny Trejo as the rest of De Niro's crew and helping Pacino is Wes Studi, Ted Levine and Mykelti Williamson. Then filling out in the rest of the cast you have Amy Brenneman, Ashley Judd, William Fictner, Tom Noonan, Dennis Haysbert, Henry Rollins and Hank Azaria.

The movie does an excellent job of getting the viewer to want both the good guys and the bad guys to win - all while balancing how each side's career choices effects their personal lives - and finally leading to a fantastic showdown between two giants.

Mann's Heat is simply one of the best crime/thrillers put to screen.
