I just have no desire to watch Nolan's latest... I've seen a few scenes online and it looks beautiful, but the story seems very... dumb.

 

Ya... I'd say it is not at same caliber as the ones prior.  Wait for it to be on Netflix or something. : )

Better than expected, not sure what the message of the film was.

I was expecting the usual "everything is hopeless" and didn't get it thankfully.

Would be good on the big screen, wide panoramic shots,

and might have had the feel of a real WW1 bayonet charge in the theater.

a Fantastic John Frankenheimer film.

 

Burt Lancaster doing his own stunts... including stunts when he was suffering with a broken leg, priceless.

An Art Movie about making an Art Movie while making a 1960s French SciFi movie.

 

"The film is an homage to 1960s European spy/sci-fi spoofs like 1968's Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik"

 

I cheated and watched on-line.

^I am going to have to catch that... I LOVE LOVE LOVE french cinema.

 

I got Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Le Samourai last year and both are magnificent!

 

Good French TV Series follows Detectives through the French system as they work cases.

Lots of the personality stereo types, which are part of French Cinema

First season they are carried away with the gross crime scenes FX, dial it back a bit in later episodes

Enough seasons to get you to March if you keep it to one a day.

 

Spiral (French: Engrenages, pronounced [ɑ̃ɡʁəˈnaʒ]) is a French television police procedural and legal drama series following the work and the private lives of Paris police officers and lawyers and judges at the Palais de Justice, Paris. It was created by Alexandra Clert for the TV production company Son et Lumière.

I just recently saw this movie and what blew my mind is how the cinematographer captured the movie. Being photographer myself, the way the perspective of how it was film was outstanding .....

This was the first movie we saw right after I put our dual SVS PB16's into service.... Not the greatest story line but subs absolutely rattled the caliche out back....

AD ASTRA

Watched it last night

Would have been great visuals on the big screen

Sound was good quality

Agree story line could have been better, esp minus the tropes

 

Maybe they will re release with ET picking Dad up just as he floats off.......

TENET

Better than expected

High quality video and sound production

Action movie, UKs best effort (need to check credits)

Bourne series definitely raised the bar for all that follow

 

Some excellent big screen shots in the Med.

My 5.1 was pumping away on the exciting parts

I applaud them for taking a risk on a hard to follow story line

Not many would take the risk

Short answer, yes take a look.

 

I paid zero to borrow it from the library.

 

1-10 I give it a 6-7 for what they got right and taking on a difficult plot to follow

 

Usual tropes

 

Having spent a lot of time there, I would say the movie was made for Euros...

 

2.5 hours in the evening, why not when it's 4 degrees outside.

 

I hit the eject button on plenty of stuff after 15 minutes, I don't bother listing them here.

 

Perhaps we should start a movie bashing thread.....

 

If someone does a UFO movie with all the different types of aliens, I would cast the Femme Fatal as the Nordic Type Alien Princess, I'd have to dress her in emergency blanket made reflective material too skinny for high gloss yellow or red plastic clothing, for that you need a baby Raquel Welch look alike.
