In a similar vein, has anyone here seen the hit Chinese animated film 'Ne Zha'? If so, what did you think of it? The trailer looks a bit eh to me, but on the other hand, I'm impressed by 'See Through', the 2009 wordless short film by the same writer/director, Yang Yu aka 'Jiaozi'.See Through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9fGXEWGdTYNe Zha trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUvuI3VApNA

I found it painfully slow moving and felt the 3 hours running time to be way too long."I so wanted to love it, but found it dull, and ultimately not worth the time I invested in it. Huge disappointment.Hustlers left me cold as well Ad Astra was interesting but a very strange long winded movie as well
Who else is going to check out Joker today?!
I found Joker to be enthralling. An amazing and terrifying character study. Joaquin will at least be nominated come awards season but I could see a win.

But don’t ask me to believe a 20 something white wall street ‘bro’ is supposed to be able to recite Sondheim’s Send In The Clowns words for words. That **** aint believable"My college friend Nick is now (sadly) a Wall Street douche-bro, but I guarantee he could recite any number of showtunes.
Recommend:Once Upon a Time in HollywoodJudyPain and Glory
Hustlers was too slow and too long. Loved and can never have enough of Downton Abbey.The real joyful surprise was Booksmart which I caught on the plane. Especially loved seeing Kaitlyn Dever have fun after watching her harrowing sexual abuse survivor portrayal in Netflix' Unbelievable.

I did not like The Joker. I found it to be a cheap rip off of better films. At times it felt like a MAGA fever dream. And it had one of the worst depictions of mental illness I've seen on screen in years. Saw JoJo Rabbit over the weekend and loved it. Not everything works but it's worth if for Roman Griffin Davis' fatastic performance.
I am desperate to see The Lighthouse. It isn't currently playing anywhere in or near my market, but fingers crossed that we get it soon.
Seeing Parasite tomorrow. Might be my most anticipated this fall honestly. The Lighthouse I am seeing as well. Excited to be weirded the f out by it. Jojo Rabbit next week. Oscar season is in full swing folks!
The movie so far this year that has stayed with me is Hotel Mumbai. It gave me this odd feeling that I was actually in the middle of what was happening. Not an easy film to recommend based on the subject matter but personally has been the film I have spoke about the most.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucYIwvZYGp8&t=58s
One moviehouse in my area finally picked up Lighthouse. Going Sunday. Can't wait.We still don't have Parasite, though. I'd really like to see that too.Addams Family was dreadful - and not in the way they intended. Looking forward to Harriet and Motherless Brooklyn.
Harriet was nothing more than a tedious lifetime channel movie of the week, how something that should have been a thrilling telling of an amazing woman’s life, turned into what Hokum appeared on screen is any ones guess. But **** it was bad
Parasite was absolutely incredible. Just incredible. I recommend going in knowing nothing. Tremendous film
Recently saw Doctor Sleep (terrific, fantastical mashup of King and Kubrick), The Lighthouse (freaky, bold performances by Dafoe and Pattinson), and Parasite (outstanding in every respect, best I've seen in years).
Saw "Doctor Sleep" last week and I loved it. As a Stephen King fan, I was nervous how it was going to combine both the Kubrick universe and the King universe, but Mike Flanagan pulled if off beautifully (minus the last 3rd which kinda faltered a bit). Also saw "Terminator: Dark Fate" and they succeeded to piss me off in the first 5 minutes and it was just a rehash of previous entries in the series. Talk about a disappointment!
