The main reason I decided to watch this movie was because of all the good things I'd heard about it. The fact that it's in black and white did put me off a bit but because when modern movies are made in black and white it's a style choice and most of the time it doesn't really add much to it. A Woman Walks Home Alone At Night (2014) was also black and white and I enjoyed that one so I decided to give it a try.
I can't say I was as blown away by this movie as a lot of other people were but it definitely wasn't bad. After 1 hour of watching it I still wasn't sure what the point of the movie was but as it turns out it's just a story about a womans day to day life working for this not-so-perfect family. It is very real though and not in some epic very hollywood way. It just shows a very real human experience.It's a slow movie and it's definitely not dramatic(although it does have its intense moments) so if you're expecting something grand and fast-paced you're bound to be dissapointed.The amount of dog shit in this movie gave me anxiety. I also really wish I could kick Fermín in the nuts, proper dickhead that one.
Using suicide threats as a way to manipulate your friends, neat.Sarcasm aside though it's probably the best episode of the season, especially with that cliffhanger. This episode really shows the dynamic and the similarities between Peach and Joe. Him criticising Peach for essentially the same things that he does.Joes savior complex is just getting worse and worse.
There's something wrong with every character in this show, and that really is a pivotal part as to why this show works so well. Specifically regarding Beck, the show would have had an entirely different tone if she was a perfect person. She has issues, not as bad as Joe,obviously but issues nonetheless. The similarity in the toxic behavior of Peach and Joe is also interesting. How Joes inner monologue is criticising Peach for the exact same things that he does, he has no self-awareness. You always hate the people that reflect your own flaws, although this is mainly about being possessive though, which is something they both very much are. Joe obviously has a savior complex. Going back to the whole thing about Beck being a flawed human. I think that was necessary for the whole thing to work seeing as Joe would basically have nothing to "fix" about her life if she didn't and the show wouldn't be nearly as eventful. It's weird though because he knew she was flawed yet would justify every mistake she made and blame it on other people which isn't surprising seeing as he was obsessed with her. I know a lot of people don't like Beck, which is fair enough but I personally didn't find her as daft and annoying as some people did. Anything bad she did pales in comparison to Joe. Ultimately, she is a flawed human, like most are. Her friends are kind of crappy, the way she copes with things aren't the healthiest and her life is just kind of a mess. Just like a lot of people that age. I guess some people have an easier time hating on her because it's more relatable, more people can relate to being cheated on than having someone murder people you care about.The show itself is really disturbing but the fact that some people are romanticizing Joe is even more disturbing. When we're hearing his thoughts justifying his behavior, ew what a creep, what a creep. I don't think there's anything redeemable about Joe as a character. His thoughts are really funny at times though, morbid but funny. Season 2 will be interesting.
I don't know how this show compares to the comics but on its own it's very good.The acting is pretty good for the most part and the soundtrack is great.
I wasn't expecting much but so far it's really fucking goodI was a bit surprised to see Lana Condor in this type of role but she's really is killing it(pun intended).
There's been quite a lot of buzz about this movie, most of it bad but I'd thought I'd give it a shot before I judged so that I knew what I was talking about.They could have made this movie without the romance, simply depicting the experience of black people in WW2. That would have been better and not this weird "nazis can be romantic too" thing. Also, this bitch Leyna is dumb, one of the main things she wasn't supposed to do is get pregnant and what does she do?GETS PREGNANT!! BITCH THINK OF YOUR SAFETY!AHHH!Dumb bitch energy. Not as bad of a movie I thought it was gonna be though and the romance part of it really isn't the main part which is good. It isn't just some movie about a biracial girl dating a nazi(phrasing it like that does make it sound ridiculous). More than anything it brings up the whole thing about racial identity and the society at the time.
The acting from George MacKay was as good as stale bread. Amandla Stenbergs acting was just fine. When it comes to the accents, none of these people sound even remotely german and it just sounds kind of awkward.That man she spoke to in french near the end of the movie, his french was not good in the slightest.I think Amma Asante had good intentions when making this movie, which is always important even though some of it can come off as slightly tone-deaf.All and all, not nearly as bad as I thought it was gonna be. The way people were talking about it made it seem like they were somehow romanticizing nazis which I didn't think was the case.
A lot of people are comparing it to The Shallows (2016) which is far enough as they have a lot of things in common.I'm a big fan of movies set in one place throughout the whole thing so naturally I felt inclined to watch this. It was a while ago since I watched The Shallows so my memory of it might be a bit muddy but I think this one is actually better.Without comparing it to any other movie it's still pretty good. I always try to judge a movie based on what it's trying to be and what it's trying to achieve. It was suspenseful and made me feel a bit claustrophobic, which in this case is a good thing, really adds to the panic of the situation. It took a few twists and turns that I didn't expect so props for that. It's not a masterpiece but for what it's trying to be it's really good.
Very different from what I thought it was gonna be, I'm pleasantly surprised.That scene where she rips her hand out of the handcuff was the grossest shit I've seen in a while, I could barely watch it.
It lacked something, I just don't know what. It also felt really short, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but it felt like it ended as soon as it started. Kind of underwhelming.Maybe it was because of the hype but I was a bit disappointed. It's not a bad movie by any means and it definitely has a certain atmosphere, that's for sure.
I don't know how it balances horror and comedy so well but it really does.
I didn't think I was gonna like this. I'm pleasantly surprised. Not really a huge fan of anything sci fi related normally.
Fun to see Amanda back, such a lovely human
Oh geez, what a creep. Really good first episode though.
It didn't make me feel anything. It is very much character driven but the problem is that I really couldn't care less about what happaned to any of them. I wouldn't say it's worth watching.
Not a huge fan of Nano, he's not the best person but damn, he's no murderer. Netflix, we're gonna need a season 2
Definitely a show made for binge-watching. I agree with @paosv about it being a bit of a mix of Gossip Girl and How to get away with murder, it kind of has that vibe.It's a bit cliché at times but I do think the characters are well rounded(most of them) .I didn't figure out who killed Marina until the very beginning of episode 8, so it took me a while, but it wasn't who i would have suspected from the start.
I really enjoyed the songs in this episode.I've really missed this show, man.
Looks promising.Also, really glad to to see Adina Porter back.
A lot more realistic than a lot of other dramas. It really pulls on your heartstrings, that's for sure.I think I would even recommend it to people who normally don't like kdramas.
It wasn't what I exptected. It's unique, definitely.It reminded me of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, probably because it's quite odd.It's a bit confusing at times but certainly intriguing.If it does get a second season I can't wait to see what they do with it.
I expected something completely different, something mediocre and cliché and to my surprise it was actually really good and dealt with very serious topics. I thought this would be more of a romcom and from the start it showed all the signs of it but by the middle it got more serious and I'm honestly shocked at how invested I was while watching.It ended on a light note which was nice.
An all time favourite. This show always puts me in a good mood.Sophia is my spirit animal.
A more original twist on the mermaid theme. It's refreshing. So far so good and hopefully it stays that way.
Eyy, they've got a knock off Shawn Mendes. Cool.
Such a quiet and calm movie, in the best way.The cinematography adds to that tranquility as well.The ending was a bit anticlimactic. I think the story could have been a lot better. The visual aspect and the acting was good enough.It reminded me a lot of the Delirium book series by Lauren Oliver, same thing there with love being a disease.
The conversation towards the end between Elio and his father was such a nice one.The last 10-15 minutes were so good and the general vibe/feeling throughout the entire movie is also quite relaxing and nice.
I thought it was gonna be bad but it was actually really funny.Good soundtrack too.
I really like it so far
I'm a bit confused as to what exactly the point of this movie is.Maybe some things got lost in translation, maybe it's just as weird even if you understand french, I don't know.It's not a bad movie but I can't honestly say what exactly is good about it either.It's a bit eerie(but honestly not that much) and quite confusing. The feeling it evokes is a lot stronger and more present in the movie than the actual plot of it, in this case that's not really a good thing, considering the story itself is confusing so the feeling it's supposed to evoke doesn't really have a leg to stand on.Tom is letting himself be abused and manipulated by Francis, which is made extra clear when Sara arrives and actually stands up for herself, which Tom clearly doesn't do. He doesn't leave, even though there are several red flags. It takes an entire story about Francis ripping a mans face open(and actually seeing that man) for him to finally leave, I feel bad for him but damn it's ridicuous that it took that much.Finding out that Guillaume basically slept with everybody and that Tom really wasn't that special makes you feel even worse for him.He is staying at the farm with Guillaume's crazy family, getting emotionally and physically abused by Francis, all because of a guy that probably didn't care that much for him in the first place. It's obvious that Tom is somehow trying to replace Guillaume with Francis and it's really just sad. Tom just seems completely emotionally drained. Francis obviously doesn't want him to leave, which I'm gonna say is not because he genuinely cares for Tom in the slightest but because of his own selfish reasons and because he's a psychopath.Everybody is trying to replace Guillaume. Tom is trying to replace Guillaume with Francis, and Francis and Agathe are trying to replace Guillaume with Tom but it just isn't possible and just comes off as extremely odd. I'm not saying it's a bad movie because there is some depth to it but there is just so much missing from it in order to really make you feel something(other than pity for Tom and the urge to punch Francis in the face).It keeps you thinking about it though, so that's something.
This movie is special to me. There's just something about it, the general feeling/vibe it has. I don't really know, I just really like it.
