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!

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!

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.

Medical Police (TV Series 2020– ), stupidly funny. With it's IMDb score at a pretty low 4.7, I'm not sure how many of these raters knew that the series is an extreme parody and not a straight police procedural. 8/10.

Rifftrax.com. They're Mystery Science Theater 3000 (TV Series 1988–1999) alumni. They continued their good work of riffing all things terrible and bad since 2006.

Oh, wow!  Like, in Nashville?  I've only been once to Octaman... had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Conor Lastowka and Bridget Nelson; the guys weren't doing a meet 'n' greet but Conor was kind enough to offer to take my MST autograph backstage for them to sign.  :)

My bad. I've never physically been to the theater but to the live screenings broadcasted to other theaters.

Antichrist(2009) 9/10
This movie makes any movie that attempts to address the same issues seem like a children's studio. Antichrist is an art film, beautiful images beautifully filmed, a complex story about human nature, religion, witchcraft, rationality and morals. The great achievement of Lars Von Trier is that he expresses all this through a dreamlike paradise, metaphoric, full of symbolism, is a director that provokes thought and asks our mind to go beyond what we can see with the naked eye, it is not like Christopher Nolan who makes very good movies but we will never find this level of symbology to talk about so many topics, this level of depth that can be divided into several layers, instead he prefers to explain everything as if we were children, of the way that is easier for he. That is really what makes this movie unique, this kind of movies is real cinema, Lars Von Trier chose to draw with his camera as if it were a brush what a painter would do in a work of art.

Richard Jewell(2019) 7/10

Although it is a very well made film, with the characteristic moral seal of Clint Eastwood, and appreciable the fact that Sir Eastwood is 90 years old and is still directing movies. Richard Jewell tells a well-known story in Clint's films, a man unjustly accused by law and the mediums, the life of this benevolent man is affected by this, not only his, also the life that of everyone around him. However the film becomes generic and leaves so many loose ends and indefinite characters, for example Kathy Scruggs was the most brazen, practically changes his ideology in the middle of the film without any reason and is not even given a close bow. This and others failures make the story of the movie not as consistent as it should. The police procedure is very well taken care of but it is absolutely nothing innovative and it is until cliche. So many things that throughout the film are forgotten as the microphones that supposedly install in the house, Nadya discovered it but nobody knows how, and of one scene for another nobody seems to care.
