    It's billed as a comedy but it's definitely a black comedy. The story goes some places for sure but the film is very well done. Rented it but I'm thinking of buying it to watch again.

    I watched The Little Things. Denzel, Rami Malek and Jared Leto crime thriller.

    Supposed to be a throwback to 90s movies like Se7en, however nowhere near as good. The ending SUCKED, decent performances by the actors though.

    That is so awesome to see. It's so well done that I bet one of those AI clean-up programs could do a number on it.

    not yet but i'm excited for it. i love The Void (and Manborg is fucking ridiculous if you can find it) so i'm a fan of the director in general.

    Watched this last night. A modern take on Lord of the Flies, with a tip of the hat to Apocalypse Now and shades of Malick. Mica Levi did an amazing job with the music.

    It's a Sin is a must-watch in 2021. Out in the UK now, coming to the USA next week:

    Saw this alone on an extended lunch break back when life in the world existed. I had no idea where it was going and I really liked it. That one kid who is in a few more mainstream US stuff was acting his ass off. Beautifully shot.

    Watched District 9 this weekend. Two things I didn't realize going into it:

    1) there is a lot of body horror going on.
    2) my son cannot handle body horror at all. he nearly chipped a tooth at one point because of the visceral reaction he had to what was happening on screen while at the same time trying to take a drink.

    So I guess The Fly / The Thing / etc. are off the list for the foreseeable future. :/

    @allegate , omg, I LOVED District 9. It was insanely powerful for me. The scene I remember most is when the man was forced to test the weapon on the prawn.

    SO. I posted this one in the conspiracy thread, because I think that's where we discussed it, but, I wanna post it here, too: there is a four hour docuseries about the Elisa Lam case on Netflix. I think it's called Crime Scene: Disappearance at the Cecil Hotel. It's fucking great. It's everything you ever wanted to know about that story and more. They interviewed the hotel manager, the detectives, hotel staff, people who were staying there at the time, some poor bastard who had a fledgling black metal career going and got blamed for killing her, conspiracy youtubers- I mean, they went all out with this shit.

    @elevenism I would love to watch that doc but I don't have Netflix. Too many steaming sites, too little monies...

    There are still a lot left unexplained about the case of Elisa Lam, like how she ended up in that water tank. And the Cecil is creepy in itself too.

    Started but haven't finished. Original footage is fascinating.

    I watched the Cecil Hotel doc. I actually used to live right down the street from that place.
    It's really intriguing and spooky, and thenSpoiler: it just anticlimactically debunks everything in a really unsatisfying way, but it's still a good watch for sure.

    Judas & the Black Messiah was excellent, highlighted by incredible (award nominee worthy) performances by both leads, as well as superb cinematography that really enhances what is mostly a straightforward approach (but still good) to a biopic. Also highly recommended simply for learning the story of Fred Hampton and the BPP if you don't know it already.

    The Little Things gives off those strooooong Seven vibes & doesn't hit those lofty heights, but is still worth watching. Denzel is Denzel...guy can't help but elevate everything he's in. Ending might not sit well with you. It didn't exactly land for me.

    I don't think it does what you said in the spoiler text.
    I still have my own theory.

    I mean, right form the start if they'd told you that Spoiler: the bottom middle button on the elevator holds the doors for two minutes, that would explain away the mystery of the unclosing elevator doors. Then they reveal at the end that the entrance port to the water tower reservoir was actually left uncovered it strips away all the mystery of "how did she pull the 20 lb cover back on?" Then "why was she acting weird" is answered pretty clearly when she reveals that she's been diagnosed with some form of bi-polar depression and she's decided to not take her medication.

    It seems pretty cut and dry there. What is your theory?

    ...and this is why I didn't bother to watch it in the first place; knowing the story already and confident in the obviousness of what actually happened.

    how do we know that worker is telling the truth?

    If the LAPD is right about that issue, I still think the same thing I've thought for a few years: some grim bastard lured her up there. They started fucking around (on the white part of the building: the same way i figured she got down there in 2015.) He convinces her that it would be really sexy to go skinny dipping, gets her to jump in the tank, and, shuts the lid.
    Otherwise, yeah, case closed, hinging on that one detail.
    There is one other thing, though: the fucking synchronicities: the TB test/outbreak, the movie, the mailing address of the bookstore, the NAME of the bookstore, etc
    I'm not saying that a "ghost" or "evil spirit" caused this to happen. But, I do think that places can become almost like, vortexes or repositories of darkness. I think if there's enough suffering in a place, it can sort of leave a metaphysical remnant: almost like the place "remembers." I swear to god my own house is like that. A lot of people have died either young or in misery- some of them IN the house, and others outside, but who lived here at the time.
    And, I think such places...I think they can fuck with people's heads, or, even like, express themselves, through synchronicity and such. I know this might sound a little crazy, but for me, it's sort of a "ghost story," no matter how you slice it.

    Oh, hey.

    Also, Nomadland was pretty damned good, about people who choose to.be drifters. It's one of those where a whole hell of a lot of it seems VERY real and possibly unscripted.

    And I dug the new Tom Hanks movie, News of the World. It's a sort of western, with GORGEOUS shots of what's meant to be 1860's Texas. @marodi , you'll definitely adore it

    Watched "I Care Alot" yesterday, fucking good. Rosamund Pike is fantastic in this (as she is in everything she does).

    THIS dude cracks me up. It's antimaskers, people with a TINY bit of power treating people without masks like they're hardened criminals, blatant racism: basically what it says on the tin- it's people going viral for doing and saying really absurdly stupid shit. I suggest backtracking to parts 1 through 4, if you like this one.

    Watched Brain Candy for the first time since it hit the home market... while I won't say it's a good movie, I think it's worth watching.



    (the trailer doesn't help prepare the viewer for the movie... )

    killer soundtrack. i was OBSESSED with TMBG's "the spiraling shape" and so mad it didn't come out on an actual TMBG album for a couple years (Factory Showroom).

    •••

    i'd been rewatching New Girl as my comfort/background show and i got to the crossover episode with Brooklyn Nine Nine, so i decided to switch over and rewatch that. i've been having trouble actually laughing at things because i feel like such shit but it's still nice to have something on that doesn't make me sad.

    We watched “On The Rocks” with Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, directed by Sophia Coppola (Apple+). We liked it.

    TMBG? Oh, I don't know.
    Watched "I Kill Giants" the other day and couldn't shake the feeling that I had already seen the movie because so many of the beats felt familiar. Randomly today I happen upon the wiki article for "A Monster Calls" and...huh, I guess what's why it seemed so familiar.
