Today's film, #2, "Promare." No idea what this one's about but the animation looks cool.
Movie #11: I've got 2019's "The Assistant" on -- trying to clear out some stuff from early in the pandemic.
God, what a relentless, crushing slog. Which I imagine is the point! As such, success? (Cripes, oh cripes.)
Once again I return to the downloads folder for some early-lockdown movies with "Capone." (#17!)
There was a lot of talk when this released about how this redeems Trank as a director post-"Fant4stic," and that's fair — it's well-made, and there's some great sequences in here, but at no point does he actually manage to make me *care* about this person or his family, which makes it all a bit flat.
Hardy, of course, plays a terrific disease-riddled Capone losing what little is left of his mind.

@Alexis is it bad that I just wanted to respond "funniest shit i've ever seen"
(I apologize if you don't know the meme)
🔫 "Live and Let Die" (1973)
@adz hahaha, yeah, I bet the tension between tones there is, uhhh, outta this world.
@Alexis@beepboop.one omg that reminds me of an amazing animated short though i wonder if i could find it again
@kurt He walks into the voting booth, closes the curtain, close-up on his smiling daughter, cut to black, credits roll.
@Alexis Not sure what else they could have done, besides... he makes them all work together happily ever after?
@kurt yeah, it's pretty obvious right away that the movie is extremely dedicated to not picking a side, it's almost too big a decision to actually depict the ramifications of
@Alexis I wonder if they credit Asimov... (at least, I think the short story i have in mind was his)
@InspectorCaracal I've been trying to avoid early reviews, but what I've picked up about "Tenet" is that I do not appear to be continuing this trend tomorrow.
This is a personal instance for Alex Daily and a few friends.
