The Prey (1984)
09/15/18

Directed by: Edwin Brown

The opening scene was somewhat promising but it ends up being aggressively bland.

Just a horribly boring film throughout with almost nothing going for it but spoilers it has a Blood Debts level last 5 seconds.

On one hand, its amazing how sudden and visceral Seagal's fight scenes are but on the other hand they're also over extremely fast.

The film itself is obviously terrible but the gimmick is really freaking cool and I do dig the killer's design.

3 Ninjas (1992)

Directed by: Jon Turteltaub

I expected this to be crap and only be good for some cheap nostalgia but what I found was that I didn't actually remember anything from it (except maybe the music?) but also that its kinda fucking awesome.

A soft, meditative film that slowly goes to some strange places and the music (as expected from Tujiko Noriko) is beautiful and appropriately scant.

It's hard to follow for awhile and there's so much bizarre stuff going on but the last few set pieces are incredible and I think a viewing of a proper subtitled version (instead of this hacked up english dub) would probably be amazing.

Directed by: Joe Wright

Being what it is, its basically required for this film to be shot real flashy and it certainly is that; half the time looking really sharp and tasteful and half the time overstepping into gaudy territory. Otherwise, it is expectantly bland but mostly inoffensive.

Definitely the most engaging BP nomination with actual characters, a story that doesn't hold your hand through it, actually has some proper pacing (despite the lightning fast set up) and generally just has a nice vibe to it.

When it eventually fucking gets to it, there is actually some ok sci-fi concepts but unfortunately at least 60% of the film is convoluted set up and an endless array of pointless (though always hilarious) establishing shots.

The pacing sucks and the story is super by-the-numbers; intentionally so but that doesn't make it okay when the rest of the movie isn't terribly interesting. Music is iight tho and it looks decent enough.

This is really great. Ostlund is one of the most subtly hilarious filmmakers going and The Square strongly continues that trend though it does recycle some ideas from his previous film.

Directed by: Steven Spielberg

I think there is an interesting story in there somewhere but boy did it not make for an interesting film. There are points that are clearly supposed to be somewhat tense and it just isn't because its not paced well enough. Also the film looks like garbo with everything looking glossy to the point where shots almost look CG and there was a handful of pro-feminist moments that really had no business being there. That being said, I didn't find it thaaat offensive.

Directed by: Luca Guadagnino

This is a good movie with a few little issues. As much as I enjoy the pacing and the breathing room allowed, when something happens it seems to kind of come out of nowhere and despite all the time we spend with the characters they aren't fleshed out all that much. The music is super nice and Italy always looks amazing even when they aren't showing it off. Is a nice feeling film.
