Please stop tagging me. I'm not your friend or your personal bodyguard.

But also, guys, stop posting about General___Reposti and mcuisgettingstale. Both are admittedly terrible users who have both been justifiable banned, and all you guys are doing is giving them the attention they want and justifying their persecution complexes. Don't stoop down to r/Drama levels, prove that you're a good SJW shill.

You've been warned, more posts or comments about those 2 might lead to a ban.

Love, Simon.

Legit my most anticipated of the year. Disney might as well rehire James Gunn, they need all the help they can get to take down God Breen.

Not ending your questions with "Thank you, Denzel" will be a bannable offense.

Hey Boots, has your extensive musical career helped you transition more into film? If so, how?

Thanks for dropping by!

Bad Genius - I thought that this was a brilliant spin on the heist movie. Instead of robbers robbing banks, students are cheating on standardized tests. The mastermind of the "heists": a straight-A (and working class) student named Lynn. She gets the chance to make a profit for her family by helping one of her friends pass a test and eventually getting hired by her friend's rich boyfriend to continue helping her. The exam scenes are shot as if they were heist scenes, and are just as thrilling as these students try not to get caught by the teacher. Lynn and another working class straight-A student named Bank (who's not part of the cheating) have interesting character arcs as both go through ethical crises on this whole cheating business. The movie also subtly deals with social and class inequality in Thailand as well as issues with its education system beneath the stylistic cinematography and editing. I highly recommend this Thai movie; it's on Netflix. Oh, and this is based on a true story.

Honorable Mentions: The Incredibles 2, Mother, Train to Busan, The Thin Red Line

Still Walking by MY MAN Hirokazu Koreeda, a director who is just an expert in taking small snapshots of incredibly simplistic stories, and turns them into heartwarming introspective looks into Japanese family culture, and this is no exception. A great deconstruction of what it means to have a modern family while clashing with old traditions, as well as a really painfully accurate depiction of child favoritism among parents. Great performances all around, including Hiroshi Abe, who is one of the best actors working today and who needs more recognition.

The way this works is that you post a review of the best film you watched this week. It doesn't have to be a new release, just any film you have seen over the last seven days that you feel is worth talking about. Here are some rules.

1. Check to see if your favourite film of last week has been posted already.

2. Please post your favourite film of last week.

3. NO TV SHOWS!

4. ALWAYS use spoiler tags. Report any comments that spoil recent / little-known films (e.g. Solo, First Reformed, Hereditary) without using the spoiler tag.

5. Comments that only contain the title of the film will be removed!

Here are some low effort comments from this week's thread that I will boldly predict:

  • Won't You

  • Be My

  • BOTTOM TEXT

For further expansion of the rules, please read this link.

Have fun and play nice!

A Fantastic Woman

An excellent film for anyone who thinks society has evolved regarding issues such as transphobia and homophobia, and now there are still largely unfair double standards and prejudices regarding someone's sexual orientation. It really shows that deep down, we're all complex humans who have the same right to love someone, and the challenges certain people have to go through just to get by on issues that us cis folk usually just take for granted. Great acting, great message, great music (I especially like this song by Daniela Vega), kind of a weak ending, but an amazing film regardless.

This is what i wrote just after seeing it.

Wow. Just wow. There was this quote in the movie where Alfredo said "Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder." And that line was so true. I think from that point on in the movie I was sobbing completely. I have never really cried that much during a movie for such a long duration.

There was another point in the movie where Toto said something along the lines of, "if this was a movie, summer would already be over." I am so overwhelmed with emotion right now I can hardly unpack the movie, but these quotes just stike me with such brutal honesty.

I'm 17. I've seen 78 movies so far this year. And what for? To feel something. To be somewhere I'm not. To escape the difficulty of life and just live for the good parts, and the bad parts, and to just live vicariously through others.

And I have seen so little in my life. I've never had a job. I haven't gone out into the 'real world' and movies are just how I live. How I get through to the next day while all the work I have is overwhelming. It's how I live.

And film is beautiful. There is not much more to say than that. Film is art.

Which version did you watch? IMO, the 3 hour version with the prolonged final act is much better and it gives Alfredo a very sinister dept that fixes the overly saccharine ending that a lot of people dislike. Either way, great movie, top 5 for me.

Before We Vanish. A very interesting take on an alien invasion movie that is less about the tragedy of extinction or the action of a space war, but more about the abstract concepts of what makes us human (sense of possession, self, family, work, and ultimately, the importance of love). It also has its share of action, but that's the most boring aspect of the film, I was more interested in seeing human beings from an outsider's perspective. Really fascinating stuff.

But than again, I also watched Toby Kebbell killing a guy with a trickshot using a plastic hub cap in the middle of a storm in Hurricane Heist, so idk what was the best film I saw this week.

Hey guys! The doc looks amazing. What advice do you have for people who might also want to create documentaries based on the art of making food? Are there any particular challenges that come with it?
