    Rising Sun (1993) starring Connery and Snipes. This was a really fun and thoughtful thriller crime mystery film. Based off of some Michael Crichton book I never read and don't intend to. Crichton wanted to warn the US a bit about the possible downsides to foreign purchase of US companies, especially technology companies. So the film is about corporate culture, US vs Japan. Connery and Snipes are a fun detective duo with Connery being the LA japanese culture guru guiding Snipes.

    Me too! The first movie, in particular, is well worth multiple viewings.

    Death of Stalin Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I enjoyed this... Their exaggerated British and American accents while supposed to be Russians was good.

    Paths of Glory: A few things first. First. How on earth was this film made in 1957? It just might have come out last year. Only in black and white. Second, how did someone make a war movie in under two hours? Its crazy that it tells so much within 1 hour and 28 minutes. That's not even an hour and a half.

    I am not going to say that its awesome. Its a rare Kubrick film which i love in my first watch. Its first half was really entertaining. The 'charge scene' has to be its highest point. I will put that war scene on the level of the Apocalypse Now scene of 'attacking the village'. Its a breathtaking scene. I enjoyed the film till the court scenes. After that i kind of lost interest.

    Not because its bad or anything like that. But because its so unconventional. That ending in particular looked like it belongs to another film. Yet, they all mean something. There was this character in relation to a scene in the beginning which i thought made no sense considering its place. This character appeared vile. But later in the film he comes across as a more complex and nuanced character. He does not do much. Yet, one feels wrong in thinking of him as evil. I am going to watch it again and again. After all its a breeze to go through. And i can't help escape the feeling that i watched something truly brilliant. Only, i wasn't paying attention.


    spoilers:
    I will add a few more things here. I do understand the point of the ending. A respite for the soldiers. But it was supposed to be a German song. Does it mean its deliberately anti-patriotic? Something which connects people as human beings which we all are. And man its amazing that there's no resolution or character arcs which make things entertaining in films. At best the general gets caught in the inquiry. Maybe a reason why i wasn't enjoying after the court scenes was because i kept hoping that they will be saved in the last minute. Its shocking. Only after the film while thinking about it i felt that familiar choking feeling which is when i feel sad while watching a film. The film has no frills. Its so fast.
    end of spoilers

    Tried watching Valerian and boy the dialogue was unwatchable. Visuals are nice but from the moment Valerian starts talking about being a bad boy I want him to die. Is the movie worth sticking out or does Dean Dehaam stay awfull throughout with dialogue that would be corny on a Soap opera

    Alien Covenant. I liked it more than Prometheus, but then I didn't like Prometheus that much.
    Until the end anyway, I hated the end.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    The Villainess. A Korean action flick from last year. Probably at least half if not 2/3rds of the plot was lifted from La Femme Nikita. Having said that it's a really well made rip-off at least. Well shot with very involving action scenes. The actors were pretty engaging. If you can get past the recycled plot elements, I'd recommend it for someone who likes action movies.

    Some unknown superhero movie about sci-fi jungle cat people based loosely on some kid's comic book. I enjoyed it. If it gets good word of mouth I suspect it'll probably break even.

    What do you expect from the director of Leon aka The Professional, Nikita and Fifth Element?

    The visuals continue to be stunning, the two lead actors continue to be lame.

    Thor The Dark World: Had to see this as Thor 3 is quite important for Infinity War. Okay film. Nothing home to write about. Except for Tom Hiddleston as Loki. I still say he is the best villain in MCU. Its one thing to be good in a very good film. To brighten up the screen which was 'okayish' is something else. Some nice visuals and action. Good enough to watch once. I will rank it slightly above X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I don't hate that film. But despite some good moments here and there, there is a feeling of going through the motions. Now up to Thor 3 and then Infinity War.
