    At Eternity's Gate (2018)
    7/10
    The is a movie about Vincent van Gogh. It is an art movie, meaning that the story is weak. What is interesting in this movie is the experimental camera where each shot is an artistic piece in itself. Willem Dafoe is of course an excellent actor and he even looks like van Gogh. The only problem is that he might be a little old for the role. Gogh died at 38 years, and Dafoe is 63 in this movie.

    but I have seen only a couple of those and they were pretty good
    It is definitely worth watching. Long ago, I had read a review of the Mifune Trilogy by a guy who had lived in Japan for many years. In the review he stated that if you ask anyone in Japan if they've watched the movies, they always are referring to the 5 movie set, whereas everyone outside of Japan makes the connection with the Mifune Trilogy. I then hunted it down. It is available on amazon now.

    Speaking of Zatoichi, I've got this set from Criterion:

    Had to sit thru 'A Star is Born' last week (Mrs Merl's choice not mine). Surprisingly it wasn't too bad for what it was. Well acted at least. Lady Gaga isn't a bad actress, tbh.

    If you like humorous criticism videos, you may enjoy this one:



    A lot of the time, they are just highlighting some ordinary production goofs or standard tropes. Sometimes, it can be cathartic to watch one of them for a movie I actually thought was bad or just didn't try hard enough (see Smallfoot on that second front).

    I just watched “Anne of Green Gables,” a delightful movie from 1934.

    Apocalypse Now (1979)
    10/10
    loosely based on the novel Heart of Darkness. This is some spectacular cinematography, especially the work with lighting in this movie

    The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)
    7/10
    a scifi horror reminiscent of the Event Horizon. I find the movie underrated on the web. Sure, it is a B movie, but I found it entertaining and was not bored during the whole movie, and the plot was not completely dumb like in some other (much higher rated) movies (for example Inception, which for me is one of the most overrated movies ever).
