The Man from Earth (2007)
That was an amazing movie. More so because it was filmed on a 50k budget with two handheld cameras.
The story is very intriguing. It centres around a man, John Oldman, who is leaving his job and throws a going away party for some colleagues at the school he worked at.
During this party they start a thought experiment in which they ask the question “what would happen if a person had survived for fourteen thousand years and what would they look like?”
Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Just watched Bohemian Rhapsody for the second time 🎼. Still a very good movie with amazing performances!
The only downside this time was that the audio in the cinema was quite soft. Like I had the feeling that it was louder at home :P
Anyhoo I’m not gonna let that ruin an awesome movie—I’ll just have to watch it again 😏
Good Will Hunting (1997)
I loved it! The scenes with Robin Williams and Matt Damon are very good. Really enjoyed Minnie Driver’s performance, too.
Ben Affleck’s acting was so-so if you ask me. That one scene where he says he would kill Will if he was still here in 20 years was well done though.
Anyhoo, I hope Skylar can forgive Will for being such an asshole to her and that they can be happy together 💖.
The Expanse - Season 3 (2018)
When The Expanse came out in 2015 it blew me away. I immediately fell in love with it and watched the first season multiple times.
At first I had some trouble getting through season two. And after just watching it again it's still my least favourite. Admittedly it does get better as it progresses.
I think that's what kept me from giving season three a fair try. Until now!
The Expanse - Season 3 (2018)
And I just watched it in it's entirety (after watching seasons one and two again). And holy fucking shit, this was the best season thus far! Or at least tied with one. This was non-stop action--always something going on. The politics at work are again very well thought out.
The mystery is cranked up a notch and the suspense with it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this season and can't wait for season four to come out later this year.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
This is still a pretty bad movie with some very illogical things like:
- Dr. Sara putting all her weight on her hands while staring down the back window of the truck which is dangling down the cliff side
- Equipment Specialist what’s his face not knowing how to tie a proper not that won’t untie itself 🤦🏻♀️
- Them parking that truck next to a motherfucking cliff to begin with Oô
Jurassic Park Trilogy (1993-2001)
Jurassic Park 1: main story is a dino park, dinosaurs are awesome and beautiful but also kinda deadly
Jurassic Park 2: main story is studying dinos, dinosaurs are still pretty but also all of them are pissed off
Jurassic Park 3: main story is about some lost kid and his divorced parents who get back together after a near death experience on a island filled with vengeful carnivores (that happen to be dinosaurs)
I really enjoyed that. And it was written and directed by a woman, Julia Ducournau 💪🏼.
Grave is a French art house about a vegetarian woman, Justine, that goes to a veterinarian school to become a vet. Her sister, Alex, also studied at the same school as did their parents before them.
Justine meets Adrien during their initiation and they become roommates. The hazing is bad and she’s forced to eat raw meat for the first time in her life.
This results in her starting to crave meat and she goes to pretty extreme lengths to satisfy those cravings.
This is an excellent thriller and it kept me in suspense throughout. The pace of the movie is also very good.
It’s a disturbing movie for sure. But weirdly it left me with a smile on my face. No small feat.
