And what the f**k did michelle pfeiffer eat and entertain herself with for 30 bloody years?

The stuff you bring up is a large part of the reason I didn't like the film. I actually thought the script was a mess, enough that I had trouble enjoying all the obviously fun parts.

Reservoir Dogs
(1992)

Six criminals, who are strangers to each other, are hired by a crime boss, Joe Cabot, to carry out a diamond robbery. Right at the outset, they are given false names with the intention that they won't get too close and will concentrate on the job instead. They are completely sure that the robbery is going to be a success. But, when the police show up right at the time and the site of the robbery, panic spreads amongst the group members, and two of them are killed in the subsequent shootout, along with a few policemen and civilians. When the remaining people assemble at the premeditated rendezvous point (a warehouse), they begin to suspect that one of them is an undercover cop.

Gone Baby Gone

When 4 year old Amanda McCready disappears from her home and the police make little headway in solving the case, the girl's aunt Beatrice McCready hires two private detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro.

As the case progresses, Kenzie and Gennaro face drug dealers, gangs and pedophiles. When they are about to solve their case, they are faced with a moral dilemma that could tear them apart.

I think that the worst you can say about it is that it's maybe kind of average? But I liked the relationship between the sisters and I thought that Seyfried was really solid in the lead role. Also, I really appreciated the PG-13 aspect to the violence. It was scary without needing any graphic torture or rape.

I'm one of the 89 percent. I concede that Seyfried was decent and it wasn't noxious in its story. But like The Call, it had some silly plot twists in the final third as our lead turns from detective to hero. I felt like The Call did a better job of establishing their lead and her heartbreak and was more realistic about what she could and couldn't do, while Gone played the game of how many crimes can she possibly commit before finding the person responsible.

More quick hits.

I'm your huckleberry.

Saw Reservoir Dogs for the first time a couple of years ago and I'll concede that it could easily be turned into a play, outside of that one scene, The big difference between that and Free Fire is that we got the scene in the diner and in the planning meeting that these people were human and were at least somewhat likable. Which means that when we see them at their lowest post-robbery, it reveals dimensions that couldn't be told due to their pseudonyms.

Free Fire tried, oh did it try with that one John Denver song to create something memorable. But nope.

Haven't seen Go, Superbad or Repo Man. Looks like I should go for them, then.

May have also confirmed me giving Unsane a shot.

In Blue Ruin, I appreciated the part involving William and how it ties into the plot as a whole.

I cannot dispute Repo Man coming out on top of virtually any list it's on.

But I will contend that both Reservoir Dogs and Killing Zoe are both much better than, say, Hell or High Water. I won't deny that this was due to the quality of the "talking" in each of them, interesting words out of interesting characters' mouths, interesting words that certainly didn't taint any of the cardboard characters in HoHW.

The 10th Victim
(1965)

A campy futuristic tale where people hunt one another for sport. In this film, Victim and Hunter run around Italy trying to score a kill in front of the movie crews they arranged so they could make commercials from the footage.

I saw this one recently as well, and although it is very silly, I liked it a bit more than you did. I liked its parody of Swinging London, Mod Fashion, James Bond cool - all of which is done so well that it looks just as dated as its targets.

I also can't hate a film that so accurately predicted the reality game show. I mean, in most ways Survivor is still a lot more dystopian, corrupt and cynical than anything here, and that's even if we ignored Petri's not-so-subtle capitalist critique.

I liked this one quite a bit. It does follow Anderson's usual pattern of "build atmosphere, build atmosphere, *scene of horrific violence*, resolution". But I thought the performances were pretty good, and I genuinely appreciated the advocacy for treating mentally ill people humanely and the point it made about the people in control actually being more dangerous. Also, I liked the ending.

I did dislike it, but I didn't hate it. I gave it a D+. Kinda wish I had written something down on Letterboxd because I don't remember all that much about it.

D+? Ouch.

I thought the performances were good, the relationship between the sisters well portrayed, and that it was no stupider than most other thrillers of this type. I'd easily give it a B or B+. One of the more enjoyable theater experiences I had that year.

I know the idea of a killer R.V. sounds fun, but this film is made in a serious way and just plain dreadful :down:

82nd (1957)
Susan Winter undertakes an expedition to a remote area of Mexico, hoping to find her fiance, Bruce Barton, whos plane-crashed there some time ago. The area is suspected to have a good supply of uranium, so Susan has promoted this to wealthy Martin Melville to get money for her expenses. In addition to Melville, she is accompanied by guide Russ Bradford and pilot Lee Brand in his small-engine craft. But the plane crashes, stranding the four in an isolated valley, which they soon discover is highly radioactive and inhabited by mutated life forms - giant insects, enormous lizards, and a 25-foot-tall human male with a deformed face, just one eye, and only brute animal instincts to feed and protect its turf.

I had to fast forward this movie or mute it, can't remember, during the cyclops' appearances. The endless fucking moaning drove me insane.

Mischa Barton and Denise Richards made a terrible movie in 2018? I find this hard to believe. :)
