Literally exact same - knocking the rest out now.
newest one other than this is The Alpinist, available to rent via Apple I think. incredible.
Just finished 14 Peaks - strong recommend if you like climbing docs.
It’s on Netflix. Just watched it last night. So good.
Watched 2 episodes of maid last night. Very good.
14 Peaks was awesome
Wife and I started True Story and enjoying it so far
If 14 Peaks was inspirational The Alpinist is fucking terrifying jfc
He's fucking completely insane.
Cowboy Bebop got cancelled :(
But please let's do 8 seasons of "The Ranch"
Watched Power of the Dog tonight. Loved it. Seen a lot of reviews of people saying it was too subtle but I got it pretty quickly, probably because I watched with subtitles.
Definitely a slow burn, though. The Anti-Marvel-Movie (which I consider a compliment).
Witcher S2 first 2 eps were solid
Where would you rank Burn After Reading among the Coen Bros filmography?
There’s a ton ahead of it but I don’t think that’s a slight. Still a really good movie
Coen Bros Films
Burn After Reading
A serious Man
Inside Llewelyn Davis
The Man Who Wasn’t There
In order. What a god damn catalogue
They're all good but those first six are absolutely incredible.
I on a whim went with some friends to see NCFOM in theaters. I left that theater amazed.
Anton Chigurh is my favorite antagonist in cinema and it isn’t frankly close
Read the book if you haven’t. Probably my favorite novel of all time.
Ledgers Joker and Denzel as Alonzo Harris in Training Day are up there for me as well but Anton is really on a mountain by himself
Solid list is solid
This came out yesterday
Next on my list after I finish Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. It’s a must read if you like Tarantino. It’s his complete director cut put into book form. The movie would have been 7 hrs long but worth it.
Does it go in-depth on Cliff and his wife?
i am not a movie geek but I recently listened to a Tarantino interview and it made me realize how there is so much work and thoughts and experiences into a 2 and a half hour movie. It’s like a huge puzzle and somehow Tarantino almost always fits it together.
Watched The Alpinist last night. Holy shit
I’m watching that soon
I have no idea how to feel after that. On one hand, the ending seemed 100% certain, just a matter of time. On the other, why did it happen then?
I enjoyed Alpinest much more than 14 peaks. Both worth a watch though.
Yes. It goes in depth into everything that the movie touches on. The movie is like the Cliff notes of the book. Pun intended. You learn a whole lot more about all of the characters and the Manson stuff as well. Lots of movie stuff as well and it’s all based on actual movies so it’s basically a must see list from Tarantino on old movies throughout the book. Im reading it but it’s on audible and narrated by Jennifer Jason Leigh.
I would put Alpanist up there with my favorite docs of all time. Enjoyed it as much as some of my other favorites
I’ll watch. But I really wish we could get more WW1 content.
That content would be mostly mud, blood, and gas.
I do agree though. The totality in the differences in warfare tactics would be fascinating, especially considering the magnitude of changes only 30 years later. They went from earthworks, trench warfare, and suicidal charges to blitzkreig which was remarkable. The idea that your tank groups would just bypass areas of resistance, get behind and disrupt supply lines, and then create pockets by cutting off a retreat was brilliant.
Pompey employed similar tactics (double envelopment) in the 2nd Punic War but it also relies on overconfidence of your enemy. In this case it didn’t matter what the French or the Soviets did. Massive swathes were encircled and captured.
Don’t Look Up is a very irritating watch
Really? Just starting it now. Will report back after.
30 minutes in and basically every character has annoyed the hell out of me so far
satire turned up to this degree is just painful
You put it well by saying irritating. I get what they were trying to do but it just wasn't as funny as they wanted it to be imo. Huge casting... Netflix had to have paid a ton.
feel like a lot of anger went into making Don't look Up, and while I understand the viewpoint, execution on the character side was just fucking awful
Oh man what a miss Don’t Look Up was, the serious moments were so good but the comedy was horrific. Great cast just a shame that’s what they did with their chance.
I liked Don’t Look Up
Thought Don’t Look Up was just ok. Had some moments, but overall the execution was bad as mentioned above
Don’t Look Up was tragically bad, Timmy was its only saving grace
Don’t look up was fine, plenty of worse movies out there, especially Netflix ones. Thought the comparison to a “modern” Idiocracy was good. Deff not as good, but same vibes.
Watching the mini series Clickbait. Am halfway thru episode 4 of 8. Pretty slow going and only kind of interesting but just enough that I'm going to have to see this thing out thru episode 8.
T's & P's appreciated that it pays off in the end
Finished it. I would call it good but nothing better than that. It was 8, 45 min. episodes but with some editing they could have gotten it down to 6 episodes and it would've been much better. Just wanted to be done with it.
Well fuck. That one certainly has a different ending than some of the climbing docs
Knowing nothing about the guy and watching it made it so good. Like watching it unfold in real time
This reads hilarious.
really got me because of all the interviews talking about him walking a tightrope, pressing his luck, etc…..
