yeah, all solid picks. do you really like Django that much though? i think it's good but i dunno, i'm not falling myself to watch it again. ditto the Hateful 8
 
lots of good films over the last seven years... not sure i'd say any of them are all-time classics though
 
some of my other favs are:

inception
black swan
boyhood
birdman
the revenant
gravity
boy
hunt for wilderpeople
the hunt
the handmaiden
the babadook
x men first class
get out
room
whiplash
the raid
kick ass
 
and probably all denis villeneuve's films tbh

the Hateful Eight was one most boring films ive ever watched. 

Django was good until the last 20-30 mins. Film should have ended after the first big shoot out.Just dragged on a bit after that.

For a film that's pretty dark in terms of subject matter (rape, racism etc), it's somehow quite lighthearted.
One of the best films I've watched for a while. The three main leads are all very good.

In no particular order
 
Spotlight
Dogtooth
Four Lions
The Hunt
Whiplash 
 
... Have probably missed some weirder ones that don't show up on IMDB / Rotten Toms. 
 
Not the best decade imo. I don't think those 5 films wouldn't even get into my all time top 50.
 
There Will Be Blood is by far my favourite film of recent times, but isn't quite the last decade.

good article about 2018's slate: https://www.avclub.com/the-a-v-club-s-50-most-anticipated-movies-of-2018-1822091007
 
one caught my eye: The Meg
From the director of National Treasure and the screenwriter of Zodiac comes a 3-D horror film that pits Jason Statham against a giant fucking prehistoric shark...
 
liking the poster tbh https://i0.wp.com/bloody-disgusting.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/meg222.jpg

went to see darkest hour last night
 
gary oldman is quality, as is ben mendelsohn. the storyline with his typist was a little superfluous and the scene on the underground was ridiculous & cringe but overall it was decent albeit nothing spectacular
 
as a nation we're never gonna let the war go, which is fair enough i suppose, but cant help but see these films as some weird propaganda. it does work though as in all honesty it does make me feel proud of what we did. sad to see what a sorry state the country is in these days compared to what it used to be



 
In a strange sort of way our obsession with our country's conduct during 1940 is a big reason for many of the UK's problems, that incessant comparison with the myth and finding ourselves inadequate in some way. It's a weird legacy

Re: Film News + Reviews 2018/01/19 10:34:44 (permalink)
some info on the new Tarantino film, set in the late 60s in the midst of the manson family murders
http://www.darkhorizons.com/details-on-dicaprios-new-tarantino-film-role/
 
LDC is the lead, with Tom Cruise and Al Pacino rumoured to co-star.
 
Reports suggest that Margot Robbie is going to play Sharon Tate, who was Roman Polanksi's wife at the time, and was killed by the family... lots of speculation that in the film though she might survive and plot her revenge on charlie and the gang
 
If you've never read up on manson, you should. he was utterly batshit crazy. all the helter skelter stuff is properly mental

Been enjoying catching up on a few 70s thrillers recently, golden age and all that.
 
The Day of the Jackal, All The Presidents Men, and Sorcerer are sick.
 
Sorcerer is mad. There's one scene involving a truck driving over a knackered rope bridge in a monsoon that is just insane considering there was no CGI back then, easily the most dangerous thing I've seen in a movie.
 
Anyone got any 70s recommendations? Conspiracy thrillers in particular. I really need to see Marathon Man and The Conversation.

One my favourite films of alltime. 
Great film and amazing acting. But i'm not sure i could watch it now. Trump in general has pretty much surpassed anything in 'Network'

Yeah I really want to see this. 
 
It's one of the best written films ever imo. The speech your man gives to Diana at the end is so ridiculously good:
 
"There's nothing left in you that I can live with. You're one of Howard's humanoids. If I stay with you, I'll be destroyed. Like Howard Beale was destroyed. Like Laureen Hobbs was destroyed. Like everything you and the institution of television touch is destroyed. You're television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. And the daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You're madness, Diana. Virulent madness. And everything you touch dies with you."

We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale. The world is a collage of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable by-laws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale; it has been since man crawled out of the slime

Is funny how he goes from saying stuff like that to "It's the individual that is finished."
and "Is dehumanization such a bad thing?"

The show is sold out but still possible to get tickets from the Friday rush thing they do. Check national Theatre site

Honestly. It was something else. Never go to theatre really but the stage production values was out of this world. So immersive and when you add in top gun acting then baby, you got yourself a show.

I stumbled across Network about 3 or 4 years ago and can remember thinking I'd never seen anything quite like it and I haven't done since either. Faye Dunaway as well, jheeze.

Trump gets a couple of clear shout outs in the stage production, as you might expect. That film was so far ahead of it's time.

yeah, i love this era of hollywood
 
the two you've mentioned are class, and network is even better
 
other great 70s thrillers  to check out in general (and you've probably seen some of them already): dog day afternoon, straw dogs, don't look now, chinatown, deliverance, get carter, long good friday, assault on precinct 13, the odessa file
 
specific conspiracy thrillers: three days of the condor, the parallax view, the boys from brazil
