I watched last Jarmusch's movie, Only Lovers Left Alive. It's warm, light comedy, perfect for a trip to cinema with friends. It's perfectly shallow, sweet and unpretending - all in good way. I felt like slowly eating a cake with cream and cherry.

I couldnt believe watching this song:



Either Jarmusch knew it or he stumbled upon it during research for the film. Kudos for including this classic.

This is the worst movie with him Ive seen. Together with GM Vietnam.

The best is Fisher King, which, unsurprisingly, isn't mentioned in obituaries and articles.

"Dead Poets Society" is his worst movie?

Maybe you should watch more movies with Robin Williams then. The guy made awful stuff like "Flubber", "Popeye", "Toys", "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Hook".

The first three I agree with, but what's with the Hook hate?

First of all I never liked the idea of a grown-up Peter Pan that returns to Neverland. Then I think the original Peter Pan story is very soulful and fanciful while the Hook movie looked quite sterile and soulless to me. It's a typical cold Hollywood blockbuster movie that doesn't leave room to your own imagination. Exactly the opposite to James Matthew Barrie's novel. On top of that most of the actors overact the whole time in this movie. Simply can't stand it.

True, I probably couldn't stand watching it today. But a much younger version of me did enjoy it.

We probably (?) have different idea of what hollywoodishness is, but my worst movies types beat your Hook to the ground in this department. Oh, and I can add Awakenings to the list. ^^

I watched latest Woody Allen movie.

It's brilliant. Wonderfully crafted. It has shallow script moments and moments of absolute...brilliancy. Critics from Rotten Potatoes and IMD...something. Don't listen to them. Allen in his best. Something I would have commit if they gave me money and freedom.

And I will sooner or later, you fockers.

A retired master car thief must come back to the industry and steal 50 cars with his crew in one night to save his brother's life.

I promised to go to cinema to watch Hobbit 3 (it's going to be sort of date, I'm justified), so I forced myself to watch Hobbit 1. It's so boring and uninspired that I can hardly watch it for longer periods - I do it only during meals, that way I got almost to half of running time.

The third one is forgettable. It basically happens in one place, so no feel of adventure.

Both the film makers and the audience have the same feeling, "let's just get over with this."

1955 - Quatermass Xperiment -Sci. Hor. Brian Donlevy Jack Warner - 7.5/10

Almost forgot this. You may know this movie as 'The Thing' with Kurt Russell. A space rocket crashes to earth, and with it comes... This movie is very much shot in the documentary style and is very watchable, although not as absolutely gripping as films mentioned above, I think it was very well made and, ignoring some slightly hokey later special effects, certainly gets the thumbs up.

I second what you said about the realism. But I disagree about special effects, if we treat these few here as sfx at all - the blob is very realistic and the movie is more a thriller than horror film, not overloaded with cheap gimmicks.

What I don't like about the movie is the main character. I mean, I like the role, but Brian Donlevy doesn't look and sound like a scientist at all, more like a gangster or authority figure. All his bossing the police around. I understand that the movie requires an expressive lead role, but this one here is just too strongly played, thus implausible.

Overall, if I would rate the movie 8/10. It's so good that it doesn't even have the feel of a B-movie.

I watched it in a small private cinema in Cracow. Felt like one of my tentacles wants to come out as real human-like. Very strange feeling.
