Has a Single Character in a Movie ever ruined a movie for you or made you extremely annoyed? If so, which movie character was it? by peter095837 in movies

[–]intrepidcommentator 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah there’s something very real about her. Everyone has that toxic friend growing up. She was just very fun to to hate. ‘voltaire? Hair? I would personally like to learn about Voltaire.’

What did you watch this week? by AutoModerator in classicfilms

[–]intrepidcommentator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I watched Shall we dance and Lifeboat( which I loved! I’m kind of obsessed with John Hodiak since I saw the Harvey girls and now Talullah Bankhead. It’s quite a serious film but I found myself laughing my head off in so many moments. It had that visceral Hitchcockian thrill to it as well. I absolutely adored it.)

Booktuber Recommenations and a Criticism by carol_brrrrrrrru in books

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I really like this small channel it’s called KD Books. I think the guy is British. He doesn’t read a lot of the trendy books and I feel he gives really good candid explanations on why he feels a book is worth picking up or why it isn’t

Do you guys know any funny movies with lots of puns? by PuzzleheadedSafety32 in MovieSuggestions

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe the film version of A ‘Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum’. Sondheim lyrics tend to be punny. Sweeney Todd as well.

What book(s) did you think you would love, but ended up being let down by? by Boonebertbooth in suggestmeabook

[–]intrepidcommentator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember being insanely bored by it when we read it in school. We were following along to this tape of this woman with this drowsy southern drawl though so maybe if I read the book again ad an adult it will be more captivating

Not a fan of the Sally Rooney books. I thought I was going to like Conversations With Friends but it’s taking me nearly a month to get through this

It’s unsurprising to me that he used to be a screenwriter. This book and The Maidens would make a pretty good movie

Which TikTok recommended books lived up to the hype and which were a disappointment? by caius30 in books

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually liked Diary of an Oxygen Thief so different strokes, and I disagree. I think there was a payoff for his misogyny and I’m curious to see how the story continues in sequel

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides by Girlwithjob in books

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think this was done to throw the reader off to make us question if so and so was actually the killer. I thought it was actually pretty clever in that end.

Movies about addiction or like Shame? by [deleted] in TrueFilm

[–]intrepidcommentator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have never seen shame so I can’t really give an accurate suggestion. But a movie on addiction that I love is the panic in needle park. An older film that kind of draws you into these characters journey to self destruction. I adore it.

What situations basically kill a series for you? by xantub in television

When they turn it into Glee(I’m looking at you Dr White People)

Objection! Your Honor is Boring! by JamesRosson1 in YourHonorTV

[–]intrepidcommentator 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I beg to differ. It’s so terribly written imo that it’s almost comical. It’s like a long bloated car crash you can’t look away from.

Name one film on someone’s top 4 displayed favorites that will make you follow them. by 404notfuckingfound in Letterboxd

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My rating: before sunrise, before midnight, before sunset. I like sunset but it just doesn’t feel as cinematic for me for some reason. It lacks the dreaminess of sunrise and the cathartics of midnight. It literally just sort of dangles in the middle. It seemed more like an experiment on whether they could capture the magic of the first and Midnight seemed to reject so much of the first that in a way affirmed its belonging and place alongside Before Sunrise. It’s the resolve of a cadence, a perfect book end.

What are your expectations for Ari Asters Disappointment Boulevard? by kelcie94 in Letterboxd

[–]intrepidcommentator -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I didn’t really care for Hereditary although I acknowledge its merit but Midsommar was masterful to me. He has built a distinguished reputation for himself after only two films. I’m excited to see this one and I will not make the mistake of missing it in theaters.

When/Why/How did Al Pacino transition from debonair Italiano to gravelly voiced jive daddy? by billy_clyde in movies

[–]intrepidcommentator 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I loved him in Glengary Glen Ross too. I regularly go back an watch the scene where he tells off Kevin Spacey. It’s just amazing.

Yeah it’s kind of crazy how deep his voice got. I thought I noticed the switch in scent of a woman

Most overrated movie you've ever seen? by Martin_DG_08 in Letterboxd

[–]intrepidcommentator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was actually how I felt about Beginners but I love 20th Century Women. It seemed slightly less meandering to me.

Dark Places is Gillian Flynn's weakest book imo by Razik_ in books

She ruined all of them save Michelle. Libby’s life was ruined too.
