    Jinn. 4.5/10. There were aspects of this film that I genuinely enjoyed.. but it was ridiculous how cinematic they did some of the shots. They took 5 minutes of the beginning of the film doing slo-mo sweeping cinematics to show that the woman was in the kitchen cooking and the guy was in his studio drawing. In the end it came across as hokey.. like.. daytime soap opera hokey.

    Glad you liked it.


    Aftermath (2012)

    A weak, fairly predictable subterranean survival - post nuke apoc flick. Nothing new here... nothing special... nothing we really haven't seen before. All of the usual tightly knit group stereotypes and attitudes represented in proper form - as is expected when a handful of people are thrown together in a compact space, while waiting out the inevitability...

    Watching it all go down I couldn't help being reminded of the '83 TV flick The Day After that I caught on it's initial TV run, and still vividly remember to this day, and has been seared into my brain.
    Now that was some straight up Cold War heebie-jeebies right there.

    Citizen Kane. Amazing movie. Feels like an understatement given when it was made. This is like, modern movie's grandpa. It's interesting to watch and pick out what movies have taken what scenes and made them their own. There's also one of those weird undercurrents to this movie where it feels like there is are whole segments that have more to do with implications than what is readily available to the senses. Fascinating work.

    It's still amazingly sad how Welles ended up. Hollywood us such a shitty town and a shitty business at times. You look at how he was done yet two-bit hacks like Michael Bay can't spend the money they make fast enough and get to make whatever shitty movie they want for any budget they want.

    I know it's kind of cliche to say, but it really felt like Welles was born in the wrong time period. I feel like if he were in his prime in the 70s the studios would have been more receptive to his attempts at maintaining creative control.

    Just got back from a screening of Nightcrawler. I really dug this flick.. probably an 8.5-9/10. Pretty intense. If you have any inclinations to see it, please do.

    Except if Welles had been in his prime in the '70s they wouldn't have been the '70s as we know it because he wouldn't have been around to make Citizen Kane when everyone else was still making movies written like Vaudeville stage productions, acted like radio dramas and filmed as if the camera were an audience member in the first couple rows looking at the stage. The French New Wave may or may not have happened nearly a decade after his debut.

    He was simply too good. There's an inflection point where being good or even great at something can lead you to great success and then there are the sad stories of transcendent talents that not only never get their proper recognition and respect while they're alive they reach the end of their lives penniless, alone, and with all the outward hallmarks of a failure. He's the single most important film director to ever live and yet his last role was the voice of a planet eating robot in an animated film and known to many as a talking head in wine commercials.

    Into the Storm. This movie would have been a lot more entertaining if it had just followed the redneck bros. as they tried to turn a natural disaster into a youtube payoff.
