    Nomadland

    Warm, moving, melancholic. Beautifully shot and a gorgeous soundtrack. 9/10

    Yeah, was just gonna post about Nomadland.
    Really quietly beautiful film.
    Its just lots of little human stories that dont need to be overly dramatised.
    The non-professional actors are all great and make it feel all the more authentic and grounded as well
    You also get to see Frances mcdormands front bottom as well, if that floats your boat.
    8/10

    Itís surprisingly decent, even if itís basically Pocahontas, very heavy-handed in its plot and message and 1/2 hr too long. Large parts look like cutscenes from a Final Fantasy or Monster Hunter and thatís no bad thing. Especially the blend between live action and animation is artfully done.

    7/10

    Yeah, I think its art direction is "out-there" enough that things don't look too incongruous.

    Not quite sure how Jake Sully is suddenly going to be underwater in Avatars 2-5.

    Love And Monsters

    Netflix 7/10

    It was a decent enough film, if a little underwhelming. Major Zombieland vibes with the narration and irreverent tone but different enough that it wasn't a total rip-off.
    All parts played well, some good laughs and some touching little moments.
    I could watch a spin off with the old boy and the little girl. Their part seemed a little unfinished to me.

    The Seventh Day

    Demonic possession and exorcism - it follows a fairly predictable path for the most part, although it does manage a few surprises along the way. It is well executed though elevating it somewhat, but far from a classic of teh genre.

    7/10

    The Ninja Turtles parody song over the end credits of Psycho Goreman was the icing on the cake.

    The Invisible Man - the recent one.

    Good new interpretation of a classic thriller plot.

    Nice moments of tension and not too much use of the jump scare.

    Worth a watch.

    Heat (1995)

    I remember watching this in a completely empty cinema in 1995 and it a) makes me happy I can remember it with such clarity 25 years on and b) makes me feel very old.

    This is still magnificent, aside from the odd clunky line here and there but that's par for the course with Mann and his macho characters - conversations are ON THE NOSE.

    Pacino takes some flak for being too far into his hammy years here but he's still great. De Niro is icily professional like something out of Le Samourai.

    It's the quintessential Michael Mann film, probably, as it was obviously intended to be, he threw everything into it. I still prefer Thief as it has the same themes but more distilled and less blustery but still, Heat is fucking magnificent and makes me sad Mann doesn't make more films, I was one of the 13 people who liked Blackhat.

    10/10

    The Blackout: Invasion Earth

    Electrical systems shut down across Earth except for a region in Russia and neighboring countries in a prelude to an invasion. It's a lot less glitzy than equivalent Hollywood films, and the reveal is conspiracy theory level nonsense, but there's some excellent scenes and for the most part is a decent watch.

    Given that everyone seemed to be praising Mitchell vs Machines I gave it a watch. It is indeed excellent.

    Also watched Thunder Force which was very average. (Was expecting it to be absolutely awful, so was pleasantly surprised by its mediocrity).

    Also recently watched Heat. Better than I remembered.

    Everyone remembers the GTA V mission and the GTA IV mission but I forgot how the opposing characters' stories are weaved together. It's definitely a series that is crammed into a movie and I want Mann to be given the opportunity to do it as a series.

    It's kind of weird - you can cut out all the personal drama and be left with this heist cop movie but then you can cut all that out and be left with a competent drama. Very well done for a movie to incorporate so many different parts that all work together.

    Cast is also spectacular. Though Buffalo Bill not playing Buffalo Bill but a man that looks like Buffalo Bill played Buffalo Bill.

    9/10

    Heat is one of my favourites. Thereís very little I donít like about it, just about everyone is great in it, the drama is great and action is fantastic.

    I 'member testing out a surround sound system with Heat. It was amazing, I think only Saving Private Ryan has it topped.

    You lot made me look up the IMDb page for Heat and I discovered
    1. Natalie Portman was in this? I can't for the life of me remember her part.
    2. I keep thinking Val Kilmer's GF was played by Charlize Theron but it's Ashley Judd. They sort of look very vaguely alike but Charlize is the one I have stuck in my head somehow.

    Natalie Portman is Pacino's stepkid. As in, she's a kid. Might be why you don't remember her ;)

    Not only that, but Tom Noonan/Red Dragon is playing a guy who sounds like the Red Dragon but isn't, do you see?

    Also, Jon Voight doing such a good Eddie Bunker impression, you wonder why they didn't bother actually getting Eddie Bunker, since Mann likes real cops and criminals in his films so much.

    Also Danny Trejo playing a character called Trejo.

    Joker on Netflix

    A comically messed up dude just can't catch a break.

    It walks a very fine line between Moulin Rouge and total crap. It ends up on the total crap side a lot.

    A lot.

    I'm sure this is High Art for people who grew up reading superhero comics and watching Marvel films.

    4/10

    Donít cut yourself on that edge.

    Also, unless youíre referring to the 2012 Bollywood film of that title, not on Netflix.
