Before I Wake (2016)

Much, much better than the mixed reception led me to believe. Even if Thomas Jane looks f**king comical when he starts shilling the XBox Kinect ten minutes in.  :laugh:

Couldn't sleep last night so just took of my laptop and started rewatching Reloaded. Man, I can't get enough of these movies. I know they're flawed movies, oftenly they feel like a compilation of great scenes badly glued together but I'll be damned if they're not captivating to watch.

I wouldn't call myself a particularly big fan of "action movies" but holy shit I can watch these scenes on loop:









I absolutely adore final Neo vs Smith even though it doesn't make a lot of sense why Smith wouldn't just send all of his clones against The One. I guess, it makes it feel more personal when they're just one on one and it doesn't matter really 'cause Neo still "loses" in the end







Love that visual parallel - everything that has a beginning, has an end







Also, Battle for Zion is such a basket of crazy stupid fun. I mean, giant robots with big guns operated by humans versus spaghetti bots, c'mon, gotta love it







That scene is might be too stretched out and eventually one begins asking "When are we gonna get back to Neo and Trinity ?" but it has a lot of great character moments. It's nice to see movie take a moment to show that it's not only Neo who is fighting for survival of humanity - it's the collective struggle of all the humans. Captain Mifune's death is gotta be my favourite of these moments:

"- Captain, I didn't finish the training program.
 - Neither did I"



Sequels throw so many interesting characters at us, it's crazy. Only if you care enough to listen what they have to say, of course:











And, of course, the man responsible for a pretentious speech to put an end to all of pretentious speeches:

Searched "matrix architect gif" and this is just too good to not put in here

Can't believe I forgot to mention the best thing about sequels - Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. Neo eliminated him in the first one, his return was never properly explained (just as most things in these movies are -"I don't fully understand how it happened" lol) but f**k it, he is back, he's running havoc against everything and everyone and I'm glad he is. Seriously, each time that man is on screen I shit my pants with joy





















Also, gotta love that exchange

Our father (documentary)

This was such a bizarre thing to watch especially since what this doctor did was legally ok..pretty disgusting.

The Grudge (2004)

Still really like this. Very creepy and eerie atmosphere.

Spiderman: No Way Home  Brilliant and what a trip down memory lane. No surprise that my 2 fav Marvel Universe films have been both Spidey films.

Lots of memories and nostalgia watching Alien and Aliens in this old format.  I've enjoyed the trip down memory lane  :)

Alien (1979) Theatrical Cut Laserdisc

I wanted to watch Alien as I originally remembered seeing it back in the day before the various colour regrades of the modern releases.  Someone kindly sent me Laserdisc rips of the theatrical cuts of all 3 films.

Lamb (2021)


It was cool...whatever it is. Although once the mystery was revealed, it looked like one of those bizarre Japanese commercials  ;D   



The Night House (2021)

This is the kind of horror movie that doesn't have to be scary to be good lol

Absentia

Pretty solid debut film for Mike Flanagan, just a little rough in spots on a technical level.
