    Blood for the Blood God. Skulls for the Skull Throne.

    I would also go as far to say that Firefly's Reavers are somewhat influenced by Event Horizon too.

    One of my all-time favorite movies, saw it at such a young age because of my Dad's obsession with sci-fi.
    Classic.

    Most of the youngsters will like to wear fashionable and chill clothing, which give a great looks to youngsters.

    I just saw the Black Panther on the big screen and I love it. It was actually better than I expected.

    Despite the Trent Reznor soundtrack, I'm going to go ahead and say Bird Box was an incredibly mediocre movie, and probably a sign of things to come via Netflix algorithm movie making. I'm going to list all of the movies it borrowed from (that I can think of atm) to create the boring amalgamation that it is. I highly advise against watching it unless you also enjoy movies like Ant-Man.

    Setting: A Quiet Place, raising children in a post-apocalyptic setting, but with no looking instead of sound. Also The Happening, in the waves of seemingly random global suicide.

    Monster(s): Depicted like Evil Dead, in something you can't see that winds and knocks down trees towards the actors. Also Signs, because they can't open doors for whatever stupid reason.

    Characters: Literally all just tropes you can find anywhere.

    Concept: Lovecraftian monsters that came from ????. Seeing them makes you go insane, and those already insane become cultists/heralds. The sketch of a Cthulhuian like monster in a *wink wink nudge nudge* manner was cringeworthy.

    The OG for this see it/kill yourself concept is courtesy of The King in Yellow, which started the cosmic horror genre (e.g. anything Lovecraft, as well as the main theme of True Detective i.e. the yellow king.)

    It's based on a book from Ferndale, MI (gay Detroit), so I assume the book is infinitely better than whatever this manticore was.

    This is the last we heard from our dear Ahimsa before witnesses reported seeing him snatched up in a big, red Netflix van...

    /\ haha

    The soundtrack was the best thing about that movie. I mean, actually, Sandra Bullock was good in it. But, yeah... no wonder one starts feeling like one has seen every good movie under the sun.

    I also wonder if there will be a correction to all of this. I just don't see how these very expensive movies and series would make commercial sense. Who even has time to watch them all?

    Speaking of Soundtracks, was in the cinema on Sunday and watched Beautiful Boy.
    Great movie, also due to the music selectio. The scene when Zola Jesus' beautiful voice set in moved me deeply.

    Two main reasons:

    Gen Z and many Millennials primarily rely on Netflix as opposed to Cable for all their TV watching.

    Even though movies like the Marvel franchise, Transformers, Fast & Furious don't work budget wise for the ratio to Western sales, Chinese revenue alone makes them extremely lucrative so they just keep on coming.

    I can’t remember the name of the website, but there was a guy (Japanese, I think) who’s actually a banker, but has a passion for cinema. He created a "Netflix for arthouse movies" that will only feature 1 movie a day. Every day, he picks a different one. Maybe someone has heard about this as well and can post a link?

    Did anyone watch Leto? Not incredible but pretty cute and Russian 80s new wave is a good topic.

    Maybe that was it, but MUBI still has more flicks.

    It's high on my list, being a huge Kino fan (obviously). I'll watch it next month for sure. The overall reception in Russia was controversial.

    Recent watches:

    Shirkers- was okay. Basically a midlife crisis documentary about the director lamenting her lost teenage summer movie and having never moved past it. English is not her first language, so the narration has weird emphasis on certain words, though still preferable to a certain Vice news reporter's glottal fry uptalk.

    Minding the Gap - mostly filmed over the course of 4 years, but footage from 12 years worth. About growing up in a rust belt city in the midwest and all the baggage that comes with it such as domestic violence and its strange normalcy. Great contrast to the "idyllic" suburban lives typically showcased in America as "the standard" (this lack of depiction and attention is exactly why Trump won). This movie was sadly a really accurate portrayal (I grew up around the rustbelt myself), but also quite gripping to watch these characters either try to move past their upbringing and settings, or drown in it.

    Velvet Buzzsaw - entertaining dark comedy about the art world. I'd say it is to the art world in its truthful mockery as The Devil Wears Prada is to fashion.

    It's decent. Didn't love it, didn't hate it. Which seems like the best reaction contemporary cinema can master in me (probably as much my fault as it is of contemporary cinema). Gyllenall was awesome - his quips were the best part of the movie. I wished they did 90 minutes of just that.

    I just saw it. It’s quite cringey, like most Netflix productions – the comparison to TDWP is unfair imo, because the latter is a far better movie.

    Just saw The Dead Don’t Die by Jim Jarmusch. Light entertainment with a humor similar to Napoleon Dynamite, I’d say. Very dry, but I liked it.
