Born Strong: 6/10
Strongman competition documentary, pretty generic thing, but still oke.

Blade Runner 2049: 5/10
I'm liked original, but not a fanatic about it and was open to a sequel possibly being good and went in pretty positively based on all the hype, despite that usually not meaning much for me. Well it was boring as hell and felt totally soulless, and there was really no need for this sequel at all. Just felt like long mediocre ride where nothing matters or goes anywhere.

Pauly Shore Stands Alone: 5/10
Vaguely interesting documentary about man who didn't know was remotely relevant or had done anything else besides old shitty 90s comedy movies. Saw him on some few different podcasts last months and seemed like semi-oke intriguing man even if a bit over the top. He comes off as pretty dickish in movie and seems like annoy dude, but also interesting with some history of stuff. Specially since a lot of podcasts im watch are all standup comic centric and you start hearing names and history of everything in scene, and then get these axual characters come to life. Anyway not very gr8 but oke if interest in this stuff.

Thor: Ragnarok: 4/10
prety fuk shitty redonk. first two Thors were at least semi-oke, but this was just too dumb and didn't like much about it at all.

The Love Witch: 4/10
dame, was so stoked on this. mega nice looking 70s visuals and theme, max love this kind of retro stuff and homage to old movs. unfortunately this has no soul and it was just terribly boarink. but dame main woman is insane bjeauty. felt like mega potential in this but quite disappoint.

Your Name (Kimi no na wa) (2016) - 9/10
Fantastic anime. Pretty good story, amazing soundtrack and while being epic, is still funny and entertaining. Somehow reminds me of Melancholia (2011) but not that melancholic, right the opposite. I recommend.

Agree so much. I loved it, cried a couple of times, smiled ear to ear many more. One of the best anime films I've seen. And gorgeous too! :) I gave it an 8 but was pretty darn close to a 9.

Also #79 on IMDb o,o very well deserved imo.

Love your avatar ;)

(your link is broken btw)

Here some of my recent ones:

Jackie (2016) - 6/10
Was actually pretty disappointed with this one, in a similar way to Dunkirk. Supposedly quite good overall, but didn't achieve anything with me - didn't provoke strong emotions, didn't expand my historical knowledge, didn't give me food for thought. I just... watched it. And it should have done at least one or two of those things! But quality-wise it was pretty good, so overall kinda average I guess. But then it had Natalie Portman, whose acting alone is ez +1.

Coco (2017) - 8/10
This was wonderful ^^ Such a beautiful story (although nowhere near as deep as, for example, Inside Out - I guess that's the difference between an 8 and a 9 for my), SO COLOURFUL <333 and so pretty and joyous :) I'm glad Pixar still does good old originals, because at some point it seemed like they were going to fall into Disney's money mincer with all the sequels. Let's hope more of these come along :)

Birdy (1984) - 7/10
I know about this film probably only because of Peter Gabriel's soundtrack, was high time to watch it. A pretty emotional and engaging experience, kept me at the edge of my seat for quite some time. And one of the best film endings I can remember!

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - 8/10
I rarely say this (no, really!), but anyone who says this film is bad knows shit about cinema (haven't heard anybody say that yet tho!). It's just such a perfect example of a very very good film. A story that is seemingly very far from epic, but presented in such a way that everyone is impressed. Fantastic acting (all 3 main characters), great screenplay, great direction... Just through and through super high quality. Will definitely rewatch this at some point.

Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) - 7/10
Worth it mainly for the acting I guess, but the whole film was quite solid. Given that it's almost 40 years old, I think the emotions of the people in it were not just authentic, but are still very relatable.

Black Panther Low/10, one of the worst marvel movies in the last few years. I haven't seen all, but I've seen many and this one blows. Would not recommend.

Wonder Woman: 6/10
Had extremely minimal expectations for this, and was sure it would be most horrible idiot superhero mov with mega bore character. It was however totally oke; not much more than that, but still.

Justice League: 4/10
rofel bad. new batman is very idiot, other characters are boring, villain max boring, all mega generic. even worse than expected after wonder woman gave some hope that maybe this could be oke too, but nope.

The 5th Wave (2016) - 5/10
I am a fan of such post-apo dystopian theme. So that was good. And Chloe is pretty. And that's about it. Idea wasn't too bad, but the execution was poor and the plotline very primitive and predictable, things left unfinished. Many things felt naive and superficial, so there wasn't very much to enjoy. So not terribly bad, but definitely subpar.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: 7/10
pretty good; entertaining and some charm to it, but was kinda expecting a lot more out of this.

Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi: 7/10
was ready to not like, but surprisingly very oke

Your Name: 6/10
It was totally fine and mostly enjoyable; cute, sad, funny and good combo of things. Coal visual art style/look etc. Found it mostly very disappointing in the end though, like a lot of build up for a very dull conclusion. Goad but meh.

Take your pills (2018) - 6/10
Good documentary, especially when my mom treats ADHD people every day. Defining the stigma, devaluation of the disease, drugs and their effects, it's all very good.
What I didn't like was that too americanized approach to the problem. Some things felt very simplistic, many scenes had annoyingly short cuts which only added into the mix of attention-disorder-ness...
Good content, but below-average execution imo.

It's not me. It's mopolauta's fault. I am doing it the same way for years, and suddenly it doesn't work? Lauta always prepends mopolauta.moposite.com/blabla in front of my links. Wtf, pls fix. It happens when my URL doesn't contain http://

Without http:// it will think it's an internal link, for example you can just write viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5789 to link to a topic.

IMDb doesn't show http:// in their links so copypasting from it does this. I guess I'll have to manually edit every single link I want to paste here. Such a nuisance...

The Titan (2018) - 3/10
Yep, it was shit. What did I even expect.

Anomalisa (2015) - 5/10
Felt very awkward, I probably didn't get what this was supposed to be about. Just... strange. Wasn't very entertained or anything...

Recent stuff...

Wonder Wheel - what can I say, Woody Allen is a man you can always rely on. Great colorful complex characters, really interesting lighting, lovely Justin Timberlake, another memorable final.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer - masterful psychological horror, made me so uneasy that I'm not sure if I can even recommend it. Just... Jesus! Colin Farrell is awesome.

Ready Player One - meh, the story and the characters are very underdeveloped. The film also tries to be a cool geek thing but it never really goes deep into the nerd culture, it just bombards you with references that don't have much depth to them. Looks good though. Btw any doomer will laugh at the first Easter egg path. What, you just need to turn around? Come on, checking whether you can open the door behind the start is always the first thing I do in custom maps.

Mary and the Witch's Flower - a Ghibli-like movie from the people that used to work at Ghibli. Not much to say about the plot (although it's fun to think about the intended message behind the idea of abandoning everything that's magic and going back to "normal boring life"), but the visuals are wonderfully inspiring. When I left the cinema the outside world seemed so bleak in comparison!

The Mercy - I didn't know anything about the events that inspired this, had no idea what will happen at any point, so I was kinda blown away. A very morally ambiguous story with an aftertaste that doesn't go away easily. Also Colin Firth is even more awesome than Colin Farrell.

Pawn Sacrifice (2014) - 7
Interesting, fine watch. Not boring.

Spotlight (2015) - 9/10
Really deserves an Oscar. I really liked the story, development, characters. Good acting; it was engaging and interesting. Very good watch.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) - 4/10
There was absolutely nothing special about this movie.

In Bruges (2008) - 8/10
Old, but gold (wtf 2008 movies being old?). Great comedy: grotesque, Irish, funny, bloody. Just great.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) - 8/10
Not a fan of musicals, but this one was quite great. Beautiful visuals and camera work.
