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!

Call Me By Your Name (2017) - 10/10. Most movies convey summer by brightening everything with sunshine. But the stronger the sun shines, the more shadow there is. Perhaps it's the same with the kind of love that the movie shows, as abundant joy must also bring about the greatest pain.

That is a very interesting two-word summary of that movie and any movie period. 

I personally liked it a lot, but I am a big fan of David Cronenberg, so I am biased.

Midnight Cowboy (1969), 6/10.

Great performances and soundtrack, but for me, it is somewhat confusing and not very enjoyable. I can sort of see where people are coming from with the high ratings though.

Last Woman on Earth (1960), speculative melodrama that killed all but three humans in the world with how boring and badly pretentious it wanted it to be. 1/10. 9/10 for the RiffTrax crew.

1917 9/10

I can not understand the critics who say that this movie has an empty script devoid of emotions, this film causes all kinds of emotions thanks to its beautiful cinematography, distressing scenes and an incredible soundtrack that i would dare to say that it is the best that I have heard in cinemas for a long time, 1917 is visually poetic.

Haven't seen it but what intrigued me hearing about it was the "long-take" method used (of course it was not one take, but still).  Don't think I've seen one of those; that's so fascinating to me.

Easily one of the best films I have ever experienced in IMAX. It utterly floored me.

When Harry Meet Sally... 8/10
WHMS is an open book on problems of adult life related to love and portrays how women and men face it in different ways, this film, like most, states that men do not pay much attention to this and spend their days having forced relationships without any connection or compassion, just thinking about pleasure, while women cry and suffer thinking about loneliness, it is probably a real portrait, however when Harry discovers that he loves Sally he begins to face these problems more mature way and begins to imagine a life without Sally, Harry goes into shock and runs to look for Sally, this is the moment when Harry really matures, in an early scene Harry tells Jess that he is maturing because now he can having a friendship with a woman without sex in between, however, this is when he discovers that the true way to mature is to have a woman and love her without the sex in between, and this is exactly what he feels for Sally.

Terrrordayctal, 3/10.  Awfully cheesy and pretty poorly acted, but it knows it and gets purposely comical, so it's not 100% hate-able.
Mimic 2, 1/10.  Worst crap I've ever seen.  I now have a grudge against the editor and writer.  :/

Streets of Fire(1984) 5/10

Westworld ( Tv Series)
With only 3 series I've been so nailed that I just can't stop watching episodes, I go through Breaking Bad and Bojack Horseman and now with Westworld, which is one of the best series I've seen in my life with incredible cinematography and scripts better developed and smarter than many movies today.

Oscar-nominated Two Cars, One Night (Short film 2004), a cute depiction of childhood boredom. Wonderfully shot. 8/10.
