Since my Licorice Pizza spotlight was stolen by a French cuck, here is the new (solo) Coen movie that has some rave reviews out of NYFF. Hoping to see it sooner than later. Another very unique and unexpected entry in the post-NCFOM career.

Fight Club (1999) - Where is this movie's mind? While it certainly feels, and sure as hell looks like some type of masterwork, it's one gigantic narrative cheat and not very bright. The book and subsequent movie are the type of works that spring up when times are generally pretty damn good -- though I'll give this movie credit for nailing and lampooning that strange late 90's/early 2000's Limp Bizkit/Woodstock '99 era. But so many of those kids misunderstood this movie, and what's actually to be understood, isn't very thought provoking. But it's masterfully shot outside of those dated CGI zooms of wires. B

Dirty Work (1998) - Yeah, well, things could be worse, you know....I could have got my nose bit off by a Saigon whore! RIP Norm

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1968) - 11/10. During the U.S. Civil War, an enterprising Mexican immigrant named Tuco, hot on the trail of a fortune in buried coins, must contend with both a ruthless killer and a conniving gringo. Will there be justice for Tuco? Fantastic cast: Our hero is played by Eli Wallach (TV's Shirley Temple's Storybook); the villains are, respectively, Lee Van Cleef (Bandits of Corsica) and Clint Eastwood (The First Traveling Saleslady). Now looking better than ever in a new dual format release from Kino Lorber!
i also just got this 4K release. I skimmed it for less than a minute and it looks incredible. Hoping to watch the whole thing tomorrow. My pre-emptive rating is 12/10

Oh hell yeah, when I saw there was a new post here I was hoping it'd have to do with a restoration.

I'm sure Criterion is releasing this, but lets hope that it just comes in a giant box set like their Varda / Bergman / Fellini. Im weary of buying Kurosawa Blus because I can't imagine they're not working on a big set.

Public Speaking (2010) - 9/10. Scorsese's documentary on Fran Lebowitz, the funniest woman in America. Something to watch while I wait for Netflix to issue Pretend It's a City on disc.
Are you not gonna watch it on Netflix? I've got a feeling that one won't be getting a physical release.

I didn't like Public Speaking when it came out but I was also 20 years old and thought it was annoying. I liked Pretend It's a City a lot, 8/10.

John Carpenter's Christine (1982) - 9/10
The Lord of the Rings (2001 - 2003) - 7/10

Trump is a mental case, and the bastards who stormed the Capitol are assholes. He and they are childish sore losers. He lost the election, plain and simple. Hopefully now he will go away and shut the fuck up forever. Fat chance.
I'm glad. I hope the other sane conservatives I know feel the same way and that Trumpers fade away quickly.

Conservatives of SLWB, thoughts?

An hour south of Rhode Island would put you in the Atlantic Ocean. OK, I guess I can call you the Man From Atlantis from now on.
Nonono I meant I am an hour south of Boston - in Rhode Island! But Boston is the nearest more major city, assuming Providence does not count.

Boston Guy?
an hour south of (Rhode Island) but yes, snow is piling!

I've been striking gold with some films I love this weekend (and some that I not so love) as I stay inside with a minor cold (or perhaps COVID??? waiting a test back)

Batman Returns (1992) - 8/10
Armageddon (1998) - 5/10
Small Axe: Mangrove (2020) - 8.5/10
Small Axe: Lovers Rock (2020) - 9/10
A Christmas Carol (2009) - 4.5/10
Jazz on a Summer's Day (1959) - 9/10
A Brighter Summer Day (1991) - 9/10

the summer day theme is coincidental

Chungking Express (1994) - 6/10

My local (Boston) cinema is doing a WKW retro also, but I'm going to wait for the Blu. Not streaming quality, all the special features in one spot. But I'll be getting it day one for sure. Other than Chungking I've only seen each of these movies once but they've never left my mind.

That hardcover book is expensive as fuck. I wonder if it will get a re-release along with the box set?

I've also never seen his shorts, including The Hand, so I'm excited for that. But I've seen all his features. I'm probably going to grab blu for My Blueberry Nights, Grandmaster and Ashes of Time Redux along with the set so I can just watch the whole filmography again.

DJ if you have options for the best versions of these, even if they are not Region A, let me know

Something that DJ and I can finally come together on, and come on
