Tip: Vesper, a brutal dystopian sci-fi movie about a 13-year old girl trying to survive in a very harsh world. Tough to watch at times, but absolutely gorgeous. Made with a $5 million budget but it looks better than a lot of $150 million Hollywood productions.

October is my Monster Madness month (inspired by AVGN) so it's nothing but spooky games and horror films all month. I re-watched The Witch and Midsommar this weekend with the girlfriend. Also picked up Halloween Kills and the new Scream on blu-ray.

@Type_Trubbish does it have to be speficly monster movies though? You can argue there's sorta a monster in The Witch but I don't remember anything that can be argued is a monster in Midsommar.

@jump Nope not specifically Monster based, I just call the month Monster Madness because I stole it from the Angry Video Game Nerd who does horror movie reviews every october for me it's just my favourite horror films and usually some new ones I haven't seen before. It doesn't need to technically be a horror either, just something spooky or halloween based. The Crow, Paranorman etc. I do the same with games though I'm taking it easy and starting with Luigi's Mansion 3 this year after pushing myself through Outlast last year hahaha. And also includes a Halloween playlist of horror themed songs

What he said above

For me, one of the best things about films is the way you interact with them. There's one for pretty much every emotion you are feeling or want to feel. This can obviously be said for any art form, and I think it holds true for cinema. Taking painting, for every Turner, there is a Francis Bacon; for every Chuck Close there is a Cy Twombly.

Being challenged or challenging yourself works with cinema too. So something like Naked or Nil By Mouth is unremittingly grim, but is full of commitment, heart, and compassion. Whereas I thought Red Sparrow (that one with Jennifer Lawrence) was just ugly. It had a really good cast as well!

I think I might just re-watch Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal for my "spook" fix. In Canada both The Witch are available to watch, I watched the Nostalgia Critic episode on the original one and they both don't really look that good for me to sit down and spend time watching them.

Also YES finally the "lost footage" will be seen! Hopefully Uncle Buck is next.

@Rambler It's a genre and it can be used in all sorts of ways and no matter what the passion always shows (sometimes).

@Kermit1
They actually found the lost footage for that Planes, Trains and Automobiles? That's great to hear! I've been interested in seeing the missing scenes after hearing about it a few years ago. I'm now going to get it on Blu-ray as soon as possible.

Ha! I didn't know that there was another film called Delirious! Wondering why everyone was on about an Eddie Murphy stand-up show!

@Rambler That's also a great movie/show.

Watched uncharted good film but actors were not great, its sort of a cross between Indiana Jones and the de vinci code. Look forward to next one, if there is one ?😷

Been churning through quite a collection the last couple of weeks.

Most importantly, Katla, the icelandic miniseries on Netflix. Incredible. One of the best shows I've ever seen. Fascinating both philosophically and superficially. Gorgeous. Dark. If you can handle emotional trauma, highly recommended.

Here's my review for Raw Deal, a Schwarzenegger movie I watched this afternoon:

Welcome to the cult!
Lol seriously though I think letterboxd is a good community.

@Gryffin Just to prepare you for Passing, it's in black and white! I'm hoping it does well so they can go back to add colour to it for re-release so it's actually watchable.

@TheJGG yeah I saw it a few years. However I feel like you just want to steal my brilliant talking points for your essay! ;p

The obvious main bullet point would be the gorgeous art style which uses watercolours and lines to look like an old timey Japanese scroll. Then followed up by its translation of the folk tale it's based on, it's leisurely long pacing and a comparison of it's contemporaries both Disney's fairy tales and Ghibli other works although it sorta reminds me of The Snowman which gets shown every British xmas.
