    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Saw The Nun last Thursday. Thought it was very mediocre. My review. https://dailyuv.com/feed/967326?location=norwich-vt

    The Favorite - Yorgos Lanthimos latest is sort of like a big royal baroque mess. The cinematography is top-notch, and you can tell the lead actresses (Coleman, Weisz, and Stone), are having a "ball" in their respected roll. It's also really hilarious, witty, and feels like a change of pace for Lanthimos, being much more accessible then his last few films. Super impressed. - 8.5 / 10

    Can You Ever Forgive Me - Saw this at the tiff screenings at Dartmouth. Great. It's awesome to see Melissa McCarthy in a different role then usual, and she's very good, but Richard E. Grant was especially outstanding as the best friend. I didn't even know much about who Lee Israel was beforehand, and I still found the art forgery story very interesting. - 8

    Cinema Paradiso - Such a beautiful film, and a wonderful tribute to film as a whole. I still cry everytime I watch this. - 9.5 / 10
  5. Awesome news. I believe this is Bear's first major big budgeted film.

    RIP Burt Reynolds

    Sadly I knew this was coming, he had been looking sickly for a while now. Hooper is a great Hollywood send-off, and the original The Longest Run rules. RIP!!! Sadly, apparently no. He died before he could film his part. Could have been a great final film too.

    The Adventures of Robin Hood - About as good as classic Hollywood cinema gets. Still one of the best swashbucklers ever. - 10 / 10

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Yep. The main theme is obviously patterned after The Great Escape, wonderfully so. Still one of my favorite Powell and for that matter Gregson Williams scores, so much fun. The track Building The Crate used to get a ridiculous amount of play out of me.

    My review of Crazy Rich Asians. https://dailyuv.com/feed/966181

    Crazy Rich Asians - Brian Tyler

    A pretty catchy song now I've listened to it apart from the film. Lyrics are nonsense of course, but the main beat and hook is nice. Not a huge fan of modern popular hip-hop music, but this is good.

    Crazy Rich Asians - Brian Tyler

    Lol, never noticed that, but I can see the similarity. The dinosaurs are now invading Singapore. Who could have seen that coming? Also I really like the sneaky crime jazz that's heard throughout the score the most, particularly this bit. Makes me think there's a robbery / break-in, in process.

    America

    Honestly I don't have a lot great to say about McCain as a politician, especially since he supported such a bad party and its policies, but I do respect his healthcare vote, and his services to the war. He was a true war hero, if anything.

    Crazy Rich Asians - Very nice romantic comedy. Starts out well, though it does devolve into melodrama and cliches typical of the genre by the end, though the writing and cast helps it work. Constance Wu is very charming, though I still can't stand Awkwafina, and found her very irritating and not very funny. Pleasant stuff. - 7 / 10

    Love Simon - Really enjoyed this. Couldn't relate to the main characters sexuality problem, but I did like him and his arc. Good stuff. - 7.5 / 10

    What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Crazy Rich Asians - Tyler - This is really solid. A good "big love theme", mixed with some decent old style big band jazz, and some oriental stylings. I'm not a huge fan of Brian Tyler, I find his loud blockbuster / action scores to be very samesy, and anonymous outside of his main themes, but whenever he does a smaller non action film, where he's not required to use an RC-ish / modern style of music, the results can be pretty good and enjoyable. This score is no exception. A nice surprise in an already decent score summer.

    RIP Aretha Franklin

    I think it was my mom who introduced me to her, and I became a fan instantly. Huge loss! She had such a great voice, even up until her death, and a huge back catalog of hits spawning decades. They didn't call her the queen of soul for nothing, after all.

    I have, I saw it for the first time a few months ago. It's a great small film about cooking and food. Also after watching it, it made me hungry, and that's probably the highest compliment I can give a film of its kind.

    New podcast with yours truly: THE GOLDSMITH ODYSSEY

    Ooh, sounds good. I'll give it a listen later, but so far it seems promising, having John Takis on is great, big fan of his liner notes. Also I haven't listened to it in years but I remember Nightmare As A Child having a real freaky sounding 60's score. Looking forward to The Invaders discussion, though obviously that won't be till the end of the year, but I can wait. The other episodes sound just as good / interesting, especially you guys starting the discussion on his work on Thriller.

    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Mission Impossible Fallout - Plotwise it's probably a bit confusing, but I don't go to these films for integral plots, I go to them for the action, and this one delivers. It's very entertaining from start to finish, and to see Cruise in his 50's still doing his own stunts is just amazing. Dude's a real pro. The few fights in this film in particular are quite excellent, and terrifically choreography, as well - 8 / 10

    Won't You Be My Neighbor - Fantastic. Wonderful tribute to a great individual who always tried to have a positive outlook on life. I learned a lot more about Fred Rogers after seeing the film, and I got so emotional and teary-eyed throughout. Easily top five of the year material. - 10
