Now that we've put all that unpleasantness behind us, who wants to discuss the finer points of Gremlins 2?

It's been arbitrary for people to praise Gremlins 2 around the late 2000s though so that's what's going on here. Movie was bad.

I feel like this thread would improve greatly if we could get fuzzy's take on Ghostbusters 2016.

It's been arbitrary for people to shit on Billy since around the late 2000s though so that's what's going on here. Album was great.

Change two words and it becomes a generic Sad Machines thought process.

All of you children with your horseplay have missed what LaBelle actually asked for, which is for us to tell her what she thought of each movie to give her her opinion. Watch and learn:

Ghostbusters: You felt the supposition of a ghost dimension to be anti-Catholic and were further appalled when the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man stepped on a church.

Goodfellas: The name suggested more of a Little Rascals kind of escapade with nice kids, but once you got over your disappointment, you quite enjoyed this, and frequently recite unmemorable lines from it to yourself.

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home: You felt the mission to save the whales was beautiful and Star Trek at its most humanitarian. You also laughed a lot when Spock neck-pinched that punk on the bus fuckin' punks.

The Joker: You went to a midnight screening solely because the news tried to hype this up as a movie that would inspire real-life violence in the theater, and if someone started something in yours, you were going to jump in with a pair of nunchuks and just whale on some heads. You were too hopped up on adrenaline, constantly checking for the first sign of a riot, to really follow the movie.

The Dark Knight: this was like the second gritty, real-world take on a superhero in the past few years and you were already bored with it, feeling that hero comics are best when they're fun and larger than life. You will admit that the Joker was good, but that's largely to shut down any further discussion. Really you prefer Cesar Romero.

Critters: A masterpiece in your mind. Each year you petition the Criterion Collection to restore this film to its intended glory and release it in 4K, and with their usual assortment of in-depth bonus materials. A feature-length commentary with actor Dee Wallace and director Stephen Herek doesn't seem like too much to ask.

I Spit On Your Grave: You have decided to be one of the weirdos who advocates this "video nasty" as a piece of feminist cinema despite all facts to the contrary. You like being seen as someone who's "really awesome and sweet in every way, except for where she's super into 'I Spit on Your Grave.'" It's like a beauty mark for you, an imperfection that makes the whole more perfect. You thought the remake stunk though.

47 Meters Down: The twist ending gave you the shock of your life and breached a very basic sense of trust you had with movies. You will never let your guard down so fully with a film again.

The Matrix: Fuckin' rules and you got really into Rage Against the Machine after you saw it.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi: You didn't really connect with this didn't love it, didn't hate it and are sad that the rabid misogynist incels have utterly torn the movie and moviemakers apart and have made it impossible to criticize it without getting lumped in with those profoundly unhealthy freaks.

Creed II

The case for a Michael B. Jordan Superman movie grows stronger.

Also, this was pretty much Rocky IV but less montages and sex robots.

8/10

If Scorsese doesn't like superhero films, why'd he make IrishMan?

It's strong enough that I wonder if the writer came up with that first and then wrote a whole movie to get there. And while I think the way it does get there is a little absurd, the quality of it makes me want to raise my grade from a B- to a B. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I will not be taking questions.

i just watched The Last Black Man In San Francisco and I give it A+

i can't really say what about it was so moving, but it felt really true to me, having lived there from 2005-2017. a lot of oddball little things in there that really rang true.

also, the man who wrote and starred in it is twenty five years old. holy shit!!

its really powerful emotionally. about the lies ppl tell themselves in order to live, how some get stuck in them forever, how others break free. so fucking sad...

and then there's the whole racist/class thing. i've only had a glimpse of this when i was in the shelter in the hood. it sucks to keep watching movies and relating more to the problem/the villains instead the solution/the victims. but nowhere near as bad as it would suck to be black and truly poor.

but yeah, you guys should watch this. powerful stuff.

there were so many things in there that like.. they're real. i was the big brother (big brother's, big sisters of bay area) to a kid in sf from the time he was 11 through 17 (and we're still friends today)

one day we were walking with his brother of the same age (same father, different mother, the father has been in jail and/or absent for the entirety of the time i've known him), and we were walking across market street and this lady ran up to us, and to me she looked like one of the many crazy homeless begging women around and she was eating a chicken wing, and she was this kid's mom and they hadn't seen eachother in a few months. it was like. its fucking real and it happens every day. he was probably 13 at the time. same day we saw two homeless people fighting and one guy fell back and like hit his head on the curb and it turned my stomach and they just laughed.. and i get it, what else can you do when you see this shit all the time from a young age

another brother of his was killed a year later. and another one two years after that. meanwhile its startups and investors and gentrification and people talking trash about the city and the government unable or unwilling to get out of its own way and so the homeless and addiction issues get worse and worse. its fucking nuts man. and i agree with him, you don't get to hate it unless you loved it
