U.S. Military Issues Warning to Troops About Incel Violence at Joker Screenings

I'm confident that this won't lead into any false flag conspiracy theories.

Also, U.S. Military? Good looking out for the rest of us collateral distractions.

The reviews out of TIFF (or was it Venice? *shrug*) weren't exactly terrific, but I suspect there's probably some Netflix-hating going on with that, so fashinable in today's festival scenes. I'm going to watch this regardless of whatever the fuck Alonso Duralde can dredge up to think.


Having seen it now, I can honestly say this wasn't some Netflix-bias, it was just trash. I rather watch Ocean's Twelve 10 times more than this again.

Saw that one at a festival earlier this year. It was fine, but in the second half it leaves the main subject to become a more didactic document about the history of taking down the mob, therefore losing the personal charm the first half had.

I was skeptical when I heard they were making a sequel because one seemed unnecessary, but it looks like it will be pretty darn good:

Yeah, I was a bit skeptical about this one as well when I heard about it. The trailer looks fine, but I'll probably just wait to see what kinds of reviews it gets.

was not aware until now but there is a new Raul Ruiz movie coming soon!

https://www.indiewire.com/2020/01/berli ... 202204686/
Included in the selection is late Chilean director Raúl Ruiz and his widow Valeria Sarmientos’ “The Tango of the Widower and Its Distorting Mirror,” which opens this year’s Forum. Ruiz, who died in 2011, shot the material in Chile in 1967, but was unable to complete it before going into exile in 1973. His widow Sarmiento has now transformed the footage into a finished film.

The film would’ve been a then-27-year-old Ruiz’s debut feature, were it completed in 1967, but he was forced to abandon the project due to lack of post-production funding.

Per his own synopsis, the film follows “a man whose wife has committed suicide and appears to him as a ghost. The ghost follows him everywhere… After seeing the ghost so frequently, the man begins to resemble her, becoming more and more feminine, in a spiral in which we discover that he was never really married, and that what is really going on is his personality doubling and a schizophrenic game.”

According to production notes, Sarmiento used Ruiz’s handwritten notebooks to understand the film’s structure.

God, I fucking love Ruiz. I feel like his ghost will go on making films for decades.

I hope this is real. This is the description of Pig (2020), which will star Nicolas Cage:

"A truffle hunter who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness must return to his past in Portland in search of his beloved foraging pig after she is kidnapped."

The Jesus Rolls, a Big Lebowski spin-off about Jesus Quintana.

It's a teaser trailer, so there's not much to see, but what a cast!

Conspicuously absent from almost all promotional materials is the most interesting thing about it, namely that it's also a remake of Bertrand Blier's hilarious and completely filthy Going Places. Which if you've seen it, really makes one wonder how they're going to treat the character's, ahem, predilections...

I looked up Going Places. The alternate title is The Waltzers, which is another term for testicles.
"Cojones" will be uttered and/or figure into the plot. You heard it here first.

I'm going to take this with a grain of salt for now cuz I know he's still working on that other movie with Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba and a lot could happen in between then.

For you, Mad Max: Fury Road was the most important day of your life. But for Australians, it was Tuesday.

It's a Wes Anderson movie, that's for sure.

In the immortal words of RIc Ocasek (R.I.P.), this is just what I needed.
Should I watch the 1973 and/or the 1984 versions first?

I haven't seen the '73 version, but Sword of the Valiant? Ooof. I guess it has its Globus/Golan charms, but I find it difficult to recommend anything with Miles O'Keefe with a clear conscience. So definitely do that one with a side of A1.

This sounds sorta badass:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tomorrow_War

"The fate of a futuristic war rests upon one man's abilities to confront the ghosts of his past. Humanity is losing to an alien invasion, so to fight back, scientists develop a way to draft soldiers from the past to fight the war."
