JFF: What Was the Last Film You Saw, and How Would You Rate It? (Pt. 19)

Simply a follow up to Jen's great post; there were getting to be so many pages in that one I thought it could use a refresh.  Happy to carry on the tradition!

Yesterday:
Spies in Disguise, 9/10.
Wasn't expecting this much heart in this animated movie. Will Smith and Tom Holland have a great chemistry together.

Interesting.  I wasn't expecting much from the trailer, but maybe I can give it a try sometime.  :)

I watched Brad Jones' review. Enough for me to give it a shot.

The Purple Rose of Cairo(1985) 10/10
The best movie I've seen of Woody Allen to date. It's amazing how a movie can be so funny and philosophical at the same time, it's something that only Allen can do. The film takes place in the era of depression during the 1930s, coincidentally the atmosphere of this movie is depressing and the characters in this movie are in depression, Cecilia because of loneliness, and Tom Baxter because it doesn't feel good to face her reality, for them it hurts both to face their reality, this is the dilemma of the film; how difficult it is to accept reality, but sometimes it is necessary as cruel as it may be.

2020 resolutions:

See all Oscar winning pictures Best Original / Adapted Screenplay (At least a good part) I am very interested in the theme of the scripts. However it will be quite difficult, 2020 seems to be the busiest year for me.

Routine procedure after seeing a Peckinpah-esque movie: Look up Ebert's and Elmo's review.

Lol, the two "E"s (the big one and the amateur)
A pity there's no website that ever collected Gene Siskel's review...
Thanks al!

If you had watched that when you were 12 like I did, you would have given it an 11. :D

Cells at Work! (2018– ), 8/10. This anime would be great and perfect for teachers in high school and professors in entry level biology college classes to play for their students.

Malcolm X (1992), rewatch. 10/10. Usually, when the Oscars ignore a movie of such magnitude and almost objective greatness, it's a foreign one. But maybe Malcolm X was too 'foreign' for the Academy members back in '92. It was not a good year for 'El's: Harvey Keitel wasn't even nominated, and Denzel Washington lost to 'Al' Pacino.

No biopic can be 100% accurate, exhaustive, or objective, but this one gives a powerful essence of a complex personality and makes you want to learn more. In fact, I picked up Manning Marable's book after watching.
