Have you seen ‘Memento’? It’s my favorite Nolan film and one of his first.
Yup: liked it a lot. But I went back and watched that one after “first learning” about Nolan from Batman.
Saw Frozen II with the kids this morning. Was pretty good but I don’t think it was as good as the first. My main problem is the music. They really were shooting to have a “Let it Go” part 2 and included 3 songs trying to fill its shoes. Plus, the songs just weren’t as fun. Even Frozen Fever and Olaf’s Frozen Holiday had more fun songs. Though there is an 80s Power Ballad in Frozen II… so it has that going for it…
I believe @Rockefeller mentioned you need to wait until after the credits and I agree. The after credit sequence was a call back to my favorite joke in the movie.
Anyway, it was pretty good despite my minor complaints. Like a lot of Disney movies, there are a few messages kids can take away from them. I think “do the next right thing” is a good one.
Yeah I’ve heard mixed things. I’m going to take my daughter in a week or two.
If you like snow you should just watch Doctor Zhivago, not some abominable crap that’s got 7% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s not like Michael Fassbender’s got any nude scenes in it.

Not too shabby.
Marriage story on Netflix.
Edit: In addition to the film itself being awesome, Randy Newman’s score for it is probably my favorite of the year.
Def a “holy f*ck, can’t believe they gave people money to make that” movie.
Glad I saw it.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
The whole theater was sniffling throughout. Tom Hanks nails it yet again.
Did not expect to see two good actors in that. I’ll see it just for them.
Terminator Dark Fate was crap. Heads up
Is the Lighthouse really that good?
Saw the preview and it sorta spooked me.
It’s good in the sense that I’m a filmmaker and this is a film that has guts, and I appreciate those involved swinging for it. I get the references they’re making and I applaud the intent behind many of the decisions. Good acting, good technical craft.
But the film’s heavy German expressionist style and lack of a clear, primary narrative plot also risks alienating those who don’t appreciate sitting 2 hours for “art.”
If you are used to artsy Taiwanese movies, I guess you’ll be fine. Tsai Ming-liang anyone?
Robert Pattinson is really breaking free of that whole ‘Twilight’ vampire image. I’m glad he’s coming into his own as an accomplished actor.
He has some really great movie performances while trying to break that image. Mostly small movies but good.
