Tom Jones (1963) - 1/10
Infuriatingly unfunny, slow, boring, one of my least favorite movies I've seen and the new "Worst Best Picture Winner", easily topping former champ Shape of Water.



No Oscar winners are worse than Ben Hur and Ghandi ...

Tom Jones was fun to watch of course.

Isn't Ben Hur that horses movie that Sergio Leone single handedly wrote, directed and performed without any crew, actor or stuntman?

Maybe, at least it was the film from which Leone got the idea to try to cast William Shatner for every role in GBU.

Really? Have you seen The Diving Bell and the Butterfly?
I'm watching At Eterny's Gate on Friday. It's on Netflix here.
Yeah, but I also didn't like Diving Bell, so you may be in luck. Diving Bell was a bit better though.

On a bit of a Jim Jarmusch jag just now.

Broken Flowers (2005) - 7/10.  Essentially a remake of Un carnet de bal (1937), although in Duvivier's original it's a woman who tracks down her old flames (and there are more of them). I do like the way Jarmusch updated the concept and made it his own. I disagree with noodles_leone about the fact the film is unfinished. If by that he means Jarmusch could have put more into it, well--I think Jarmusch made exactly the film he set out to make. The "unfinished" quality, if that's what you want to call it, is intentional.

I still like the film a lot, although Paterson is now my favorite Jarmusch.

Your rating is still ridiculous, objectively false and impossible to defend. But i’m happy to see use a rating under 5 for once! It helps take your regular rating more seriously :p

I virtually never rate a movie below a 5/10, cuz if it's that bad, I'll usually shut it off in middle, and I never give a rating for a movie I haven't finished  ;)

Good question

Maybe the cast, maybe the high rating on IMDB, or maybe I was hoping to see them sink like Titanic.

Parker (2013) 6/10. Statham: same-o, same-o. J-Lo: even at her advanced age, oddly appealing. The Bald Guy from The Shield: Meh, not so much. With Patti Lupone as J-Lo's mom, and Bobby Cannavale (the reigning Prince of Broadway) as chopped liver. Oh yeah, there's an undead Nick Nolte wandering around somewhere in this too. OMG, I just watched a Taylor Hackford film!
I'm upping this to a "7" or maybe even an "8." Loved the stunts and practical effects with no CGI enhancement. Action scenes are edited well enough that you don't lose track of what's going on (a rare thing these days).  The knife-scene-in-the-condo-with-the-balcony is worth (as they say) the price of admission alone.

It's intentional only if intentional means "I don't feel like working today". The result is a (charming) missed opportunity that would have been much easier to forgive if Un Carnet de Bal didn't exist.

What would you have liked to see in Jarmusch's film?

Yesterday - rained all day - I watched The High and The Mighty from 1954.  This was an early "crisis over the ocean" airplane trouble film, won best original score Oscar though.  Most likely this was a major inspiration for the film "Airplane" as well (both actually starred Robert Stack) and for "Airport", etc. 

Engine dies mid-pacific, broken propeller causes loss of some gasoline, focuses on the stories of the individual passengers.  One must remember the time frame this was made, so I'll rate 6/10.

Evening we watched "Destination Wedding" with Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder (who was virtually unrecognizable at age 47, playing a decade younger).  Very predictable, but Paso Robles scenery was nice (I've been there).  Interesting use of quite-long takes with both actors (who had 98% of the dialog in the film) in the scenes, rare cutting back and forth.  Rate 4/10, really seemed more like a Lifetime Movie.

Detective Story (1951): An evening at the 21st precinct bureau in NYC, with various storylines intersecting, centered around principled detective Kirk Douglas, his wife Eleanor Parker and abortion doctor George Macready. William Bendix plays Douglas's more easy-going partner. Smaller parts for Joseph 'Dr. No' Wiseman and Cathy O'Donnell. Noir-lite. Really enjoyed it, even tho Douglas goes a bit over-the-top at times. Good movie. 8/10
