Hey, PExers! I'm from the Cavernduke and Friends thread at the Personals sub-forum. We are holding our own movie challenge for 2019 and thought of extending the invite to all PExers who may be interested.

    We keep track of movies seen here. If you don't feel like posting over there, you may post your reviews in this thread.

    No prizes (yet, maybe PEx will sponsor? :lol: ) Just for personal bragging rights and beating personal records. ;)

    P.S. We also hold virtual movie viewing parties every Saturday and Sunday. I'm guessing we'll have films with these movie stars in them. Feel free to join us here.

    Movie Star: Amy Adams
    Movie: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)
    Date Watched: January 1-2, 2019 (12:30-ish na sya natapos)
    Medium: Netflix
    Comments: Goodness, I actually enjoyed this. It's so epic and grand and the imagery is stunning. Can't say I'm a big fan of the fight scenes though, nor the laughable reason of Batman and Superman coming together. Other than that and some not-so-sharp writing, it's a commendable superhero movie in my book. And yes, I did a little scream during Wonder Woman's entrance. As for Amy, I'm glad she was in it enough but would've loved more exploration on Lois and Clark's relationship.

    Comments: You know a romcom is sexist when you wanna slap some sense into all the women in it. All of the characters and their lines are so cringe-worthy. What a waste of a decent cast.

    Comments: I'm not a fan of mobster films so I didn't enjoy this much. The most fun moments for me are whenever Isabelle Adjani is onscreen. And for once I like Vincent Cassel's character.

    Comments: Good but I just wish there was less Woody screen-time 'cause he's so annoying. I had to pause it halfway and watched another movie then finished it.

    I would have loved the 1993 futuristic concept, if it weren't for the pizza chain that survived. That said, I think we should only be allowed to watch 1 SStallone movie every five years.

    Movie is in the Spanish languages and is 01:25:37 long.

    History buffs know that Eva Peron’s body disappeared after she was embalmed.

    This Movie is divided into 3 parts which chronicles the death of Eva Perón and the disappearance of her corpse after being embalmed.

    - Tommy Lee Jones's wrinkly face

    Comment: 
    History buffs will always remember Operation Valkyrie and the name Claus Von Stauffenberg.
    Tom Cruise plays the role of Claus.  I found out from Wikipedia that Tom Cruise got interested in the title role based on a uncanny resemblance to a picture of Von Stauffenberg. 

    I wonder what would have happened if assassination of Hitler was a success?

    Comments: A group of college friends reminisce their past as the popular one of the group commits suicide. Fine film but does not have a lot juice in it. Good performances though. [3/5].

    Medium: Digital
    Comments: Mysterious deaths occur as a revived House of Wax reopens. Much more famous for its 3D Pioneering gimick, House of wax does not have that much to carry its weight. Very basic 50s fare [2/5].

    Movie: Life of Oharu (1952)
    Date Watched: January 11, 2019
    Medium: Digital
    Comments: Life of Oharu is Mizugochi's ode to the broken woman, . From her humble beginning as a courtesan who fell in love to a commoner to an old desperate hag who is just try to live by. You cannot just fathom how low had Oharu had fell, to the point that his own son wants to hide her from possible shame she would bring. Tanaka is brilliant as usual as unlucky Oharu in this classic feminist text from Mizoguchi. Another must see.[4.5/5].

    Movie Star: Joan Crawford
    Movie: The Damned Don't Cry (1950)
    Date Watched: January 5, 2019
    Medium: Digital
    Comments: The best type of Joan is the angriest and crankiest one. In the Damned Don't Cry, she is a down on-her luck divorcee who is forced into the house of pleasure. Once she found an escape to her rathole, in virtue of an accountant and then a gangster, she clinged to it and never looked back. But as fast as she was thrusted to the limelight, is as fast as she fell. 

    Possibly the best Joan Film I have watched, the Damned Don't Cry is such an enticing Film Noir. Its top-notch melodrama and with the right amount of camp with the dazzle of hard-boiled edge. Top-notch movie viewing indeed.[4.5/5]
