Re: What was the last movie you've seen?

Last theater visit was Midsommar in a mostly empty theater. The movie itself was amazing and I hope it did better elsewhere than it presumably did in my area. Such a cool way to explore themes of depression, anxiety, and struggling relationships wrapped in a beautiful little horror movie. The gore was a bit heavy handed, but it made the movie feel more visceral which was welcome. Florence Pugh was definitely a highlight with some of the best on screen depictions of mental illness I've seen.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. I really enjoyed it.

Me too! I thought it was pretty wild and, strangely, reminiscent of Blade Runner (but with way more Pokémon and an arguably scarier antagonist).

Phantasm III, which upped the gore and added some humor. But it's still tripping as hell. And to be honest, I'm starting to wonder if Don Co's Coscarelli is just making up the mythology as he goes along. Not complaining, though.

Also I watched The Triplets of Belleville, and it was interesting to say the least.

Uncle Buck

I watched Uncle Buck for the first time the other day. I'm not sure how I never came across this one before, but it was awesome. I love John Hughes.




Delirious

I guess I was in a John Candy mood after watching Uncle Buck, and Delirious was free with Prime. I've never seen it before. It wasn't especially good, but it wasn't bad either.

Wow, ziggy. Uncle buck was one I watched a Million times in my childhood. It used to come on the Ted Turner TV channels all the time. Come to think of it, I’ve never gone back to rewatch it as an adult. I wonder if it still holds up.

If you’re still in a John Candy mood, watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. That’s one of his best roles.

Any one watched the 50s version of House of Wax and House on Haunted Hill?
Wondering if they are worth the watch since I will be watching the more modern versions of them.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles is one of my favorite movies! I watch it at least once a year (around Thanksgiving Day).

I think Uncle Buck holds up. Like I've said, I've never seen it. So my opinion of it isn't biased by anything.

House on Haunted Hill is pretty good.

He's also great in Heavy Metal.
