I also watched the original Ghost in the Shell. I donít know if I was just tired when I watched it but I feel I need to watch it again before I settle my thoughts.
Gave this a rewatch with a notepad in tow and I think I understand it more now - not to mention enjoy it too.

Yeah, Paasche loves that film, but I never cared for it at all. Tries way too hard to be edgy.

Another Hazelrabbit?

I will not allow a child molester to be the last person to post on this forum.

Although honestly, it'd be fitting...

Kind of random, but I find the Citizen Kane clapping gif really cringey.

In that specific context or in general?

Before Sunrise might just be a perfect film, almost entirely due to the scriptís charm and Hawke/Delpyís chemistry.

To be honest, you'll be able to figure out what's going on with just an elementary knowledge of action tropes.

I believe I know what scene you're referring to, but that reveal was ultimately meant to be obvious in my eyes. Especially how it was played out in the scene that follows.

In the first five minutes, when they were talking about the disease outbreak in Kashmir, I thought to myself "Wow, this is a different direction. Now we're talking about bio-weapons. At least it's not another list of all the agents falling into the wrong hands, or a nuclear bomb."

Womp womp.

Having seen this yesterday, I now see what you mean. In particular,  during the third act Paasche praises so much, I couldn't help but feel it was a re-run of Ghost Protocol but with double the number of nukes. (Yeah, Protocol had a missile, but overall endless cycle of close calls and last-second relief was the same.)

Perhaps much of the problem was in that I was invited to see it, and still didn't see the fifth. Perhaps then it would have made sense why the CIA essentially wanted to massacre dozens of the French police for the sake of the previous film's bad guy? It doesn't help that Cavill is a decent goon, but really can't sell a supposed mastermind.

Taxi Driver deserves its reputation. De Niro's performance is an all timer, and it's amazing how well the film has aged form an aesthetic perspective. I love how pervasive the sleaziness of 70's New York feels.

Films I been seein':

Bullets Over Broadway: Pretty standard Woody Allen fare. I called the plot twist fairly early on. But the acting is all superb, and Allen is completely in his wheelhouse here. Writing is terrific too. 8/10

Akira: Shit.

In the Mood for Love: Girlfriend was in the mood for love while watching this, so I didn't see most of it. Cinematography was nice, though.

The Pervert's Guide to Ideology: Berkeley people introduced me to this Slavoj Zizek guy; he's a Slovenian communist who makes weirdo movies for weirdos. I appreciate how unhinged he is. Movie was an interesting watch, but most of his interpretations of different films are flat-out wrong. He's the ultimate neckbeard armchair philosopher. Some people on this site might get a kick out of him, but I can't recommend overall.

O Brother Where Art Thou?: Still holds up.

I suppose every filmmaker has bumps in the road. What makes this suffer in comparison to, say, A Separation?

In the Mood for Love: Girlfriend was in the mood for love while watching this, so I didn't see most of it. Cinematography was nice, though.
This grows on me the more I think about it. Itís admirable in its understatedness.

Night on Earth is a solid film. The segments are all pretty consistent in quality (though the New York segment is the bests by far) and the film has some insightful character moments and solid performances across the board. I recommend it to those on here who like anthology films and Jim Jarmusch (as it is quite similar in approach to Paterson).

Watched Big Fish for Philosophy class. Like Big Eyes, the understatedness of the film compared to what Burton is know for helps the film out a lot. The story segments are much more interesting than the present day plot line but I suppose thatís the point, and the ending was pretty well done tearjerker material.

The last half hour of Se7en is about as good as film gets, to me. Spacey's even creepier now too given last year's revelations.

Tully was decent. I admittedly did some homework while watching it last night but I canít deny that thereís some very committed work from Charlize Theron and some astute observations about modern parenting.
