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!

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot, 6/10.  Different kind of a movie.  Not as good as you may have hoped, but better than you would've thought.

The Stranger (1973) AKA Stranded in Space (1973 TV Movie) AKA failed TV pilot. Movie? 1/10. MST3k episode? 10/10.
Weird as I have no memory of ever seeing this episode or movie and then finding out that I already rated the movie on IMDb. Life's funny that way.

Terminator: Dark Fate, 6/10.  Not the best movie ever, of course, but pretty good within the usual Terminator fare.  :)

Judy (2019) - 7/10. Ok film, but the acting is really good. I have seen all Best Picture nominees so I'll try to fill other categories, unfortunately it will be impossible to watch all actresses since it doesn't seem Harriet will be released soon.

I did not see this movie with the hope that it surpassed the original but I was not disappointed either.

I saw the RiffTrax clip and LOST it when the characters wanted to teleport or something but were told that would be dangerous at the moment.  The guy went, "Huh," and Kevin riffed, "Somethin' to think about."  And they all laughed.  :D

:)  I like non-gory horror, and this wasn't a bloodbath; it was just not very entertaining.

Batman Begins (2005) - 9/10, rewatch. A curious case where bad editing has a significant negative effect. Many moments early on are robbed of their weight because they end so abruptly; sometimes it's even hard to follow the dialogue. The fight scenes are incoherent, although this is also due to Nolan's weak choreography.

But even with these technical shortcomings, the story conveys a great urgency that is always present in the action and makes it exciting. The movie doesn't have much "comic book quality" and Gotham's style is toned down, but these are legitimate choices. I showed Batman Begins to my mother but kept the title a secret. She only realized it was about Batman 40 minutes into the movie. This way, you can appreciate what this character even is about in the first place, and realize which themes and struggles make him plausible. I love Tim Burton's fantasy-noir aesthetics, but perhaps they would've been too much of a distracting spectacle in this case.
